Elounda Heights Apartments and Studios
Ranked #2 of 35 Hotels in Elounda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Just returned from a week staying at the Elounda Heights. From the momment Vangelis picked us up from the Square (no dragging suitcases up the hill), everything was excellent. We were welcomed with warmth and a big greek smile.

Our apartment (Eros) was overlooking the bay and had a180degree view which was astounding. The apartment was spotless and remained so. Linen and towels were changed every 2 day and the apartment cleaned. The apartment came fully equipped and it was easy to keep clean and make yourself at home. The welcome pack on arrival was most appreciated.

As with previous posts Vangeli's cooking was second to none and his care of the gardens was obvious with lots of beautiful flowers and shrubs which smelt gorgeous.

We were looking forward to a relaxing break which was exactly what we got thanks to the Ann and Vangelis and their total professionalism. What a team!

Anne and Vangelis gave us a great time at Elounda Heights, their welcome was as warm as the weather, and the Raki was as cold as ice. We had a lovely time there, lovely apartments, simple and clean, excellent food and good company. Loved the boat trip and just lounging by the pool. Once you get to the top of "Cardiac Hill" the views over Elounda and towards Spinalonga are gorgeous.Blue skies and blue sea. Debs at the pool bar keeping the cold drinks flowing. The only downside (which is not any fault of Anne or Vangelis) is the cost now that the exchange rate is so bad...but we felt it was worth every Euro.

We visited Elounda Heights in August 2011 - but every so often still in cold old Dec 2011 my mind drifts back to the poolside bar or the al fresco dining on the terrace..and always with a smile. Vangelis' cooking and teasing, Ann's warmth and welcome, Deborah pouring drinks and having a laugh. Perfect recipe for a relaxing effortless holiday.

Elounda is a lovely little town with a wide selection of bars and restaurants to suits multiple tastes and budgets. And above all it has the bay and Spinalonga. Just a little bit of magic that the Gods left for us to enjoy.

Yes the hill is steep but the welcome and the laughter kind of banish the wobbling calf muscles - and as they say you do gain after the pain.

Room Tip: Upper room fantastic views, lower rooms easy access.

Would of been full marks but for the hill. Only 250metres, but it makes you sweat! Once you're up, you're greeted by vangelis and Ann, the perfect hosts. The food cooked by vangelis is really good, you dont need to go out to eat. Pool is cooling and the poolbar has everything you need, and the views are the stuff of postcards. Rooms are good size kept clean and aircon is 2€ for 8 hrs. Would definitely go again, andwould always recommend elounda heights.

We stayed at the elounda heights in the summer of 2009. We had three of the four apartments looking out over the pool across to spinalonga. We were met in the town by the owners who took our luggage in a truck up the hill. We were told on arrival at Heraklion airport that the coach transfer can't go to the hotel because of the steepness of the road. Three cars ran us up the hill driven by other hotel guests.

The view is breathtaking. But so is the walk up that hill.

The staff were all very nice. And we had breakfast every day and lunch there most days. We didn't have evening meals there but that is nothing to do with the venue at all. We have been visiting elounda since 2000 and any regular will know hotel availability varies greatly each season. We go because of the bar and restaurant owners we have known for years and consider friends so we had to make every evening count which is the only reason we didn't have our evening meals there. The majority of other guests ate there every night and raved about it being great.

We had our ten month old boy with us and this presented a few issues only relevant to toddlers. The pool was off limits to kids in swim pants. A lot of other resorts don't have issues with kids or have a separate kids shallow pool ( I have found over the years it's normally adults that do unpleasant things in pools ) we had no issue with this as he was so young.
They made a superb gesture to us by supplying a paddling pool on our terraced area which was thoroughly enjoyed by the baby. The hill we knew about from years of driving around elounda etc but without the car the hill was a real effort going up with a push chair and tricky going down too as it was quite slippy. Also hard on the in laws in their late fifties. You can get a cheap cab IF you can find one willing. They mostly drive large new mercedes Benz and 9 out of 10 refused as the newer cars are lower and the bottoms ground out on the bends. As the cabs predominantly service the expensive out of town hotels And trips to agios some of the wait times exceeded half an hour even though there were loads of cabs at the cab rank.

In summary the owners were very good. The apartments were nice and clean. The food we had was excellent. Now we have two boys under 6 added to the desire to go into town without taking the hire car every night ( can't face carrying sleeping kids up that hill in that heat ) will not be practical until they are older.

Would I recommend the heights. Yes to the fit and able or those who want to stay and relax round the pool etc. ( with consideration to the aforementioned. )
