I stayed here for a week with my partner at the end of May and it was a lovely experience all round. Beautiful views, gorgeous weather, delicious food and amazing hospitality. It was our first time, but everyone in the team was so friendly and we realized there were people who came back year after year and are like old friends. Harldy surprising! We enjoyed walking down into the town, despite the steep walk back up, hiring a car for sightseeing and lazing by the pool; but the highlight was the meze night (thanks to Debbie and Vangelis for the dancing lessons!) The only disappointment was there were not enough people to go out on the boat for the fishing trip. Next time...

Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing week at Elounda Heights. For us, returning here is like going to stay with friends - Vangelis and his team do everything possible to make sure that their guests (new or returning) feel at home, and have a great time - whether this is arranging a taxi to collect you from the airport, bringing you a meal, even though you have arrived at 23.00, or simply chatting at the bar!
The accommodation is simple, but comfortable and well equipped (though I admit the kitchenette didn't get used) - Vangelis provides such lovely food, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in the pool bar or restaurant!! Lazy days round the pool were just what we needed, and the views are breathtaking!
The meze night was great fun, as was the boat trip - a lovely new boat this year.
We'll be back of course, like many other guests ....

My partner and I stayed here for a week at the end of June and we are so glad we found it! The apartment was everything we needed and the pool was the perfect place to spend a lazy day. We were made to feel very welcome from day one. The meze night was wonderful, Vangelis' cooking was amazing, some of the best food from our stay in Crete! The atmosphere was great too, I would say perfect for all ages. And only 5 minutes walk from the main square with loads of tavernas to choose from, the location was perfect! Although there is a steep hill to walk up to get back, we found you can jump in a cab and they will take you up the hill for 5 euros! The views from the pool bar are spectacular, I could sit there all day! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, we will definitely go back!

When we got married in Elounda in May 2011, Vangelis and family took care of the catering, and several of our guests stayed at Elounda Heights. We enjoyed Vangelis and family's company so much, and our guests were so thrilled with the accommodation, that we decided to spend our 2nd anniversary at Elounda Heights, and several of our guests couldn't wait to return with us.

The accommodation is comfortable, spacious and they have thought of everything you could need when self-catering. We extended our stay (we just couldn't leave as planned!), and so stayed in both an apartment and a studio. We particularly loved the latter, which exceeded the usual standards of studios in Greece, with a lovely lounge area and fantastic, private terrace with uninterrupted views over the bay. The location up above Elounda ensures easy access to the facilities of the town, at the same time as allowing you to retreat to the peace and quiet whenever you fancy.

However, it is the welcome and willingness of Vangelis and his team to go the extra mile to make sure that their guests have everything they need (including space, and peace and quiet) that make Elounda Heights so special. We were greeted as old friends after 2 years, and the extra touches such as "Happy Anniversary" flowers in our room on arrival, cooking a special meal for all of us and making a fuss on the day itself, made us feel completely relaxed and at home.

There is so much more to say that makes Elounda Heights such a special place, but you really need to go and experience Cretan hospitality at its best for yourself to understand what Vangelis, Ann, Natalia and Debbie do so well!

Room Tip: We loved Studio "Eros", as it is on the end of the block, with a private terrace and unint...

Elounda Heights is the perfect place to stay in Eastern Crete. The location is good and there are options to eat at the apartments or in the nearby town. The owner is hospitable and extremely helpful in terms of local knowledge and tips. Just a great place to be !!

There are lots of glowing reports here and a few negatives which are fair. Value for money v what you get are the reasons its TA no.1.

The spot has gorgeous views of the bay and beyond. Nicely laid out gardens and accommodation around the pool and bar makes for a sociable atmosphere. There were no other couples with children there during our stay. Everyone was perfectly lovely to our daughter but I think the layout and location probably aren't very practical for families. We did fine tho that hill is a killer!

The beds are a little hard, furnishings a little basic, and at least one hook in the bathroom wouldn't go amiss!

Family running the place are lovely and obviously want to make everyone feel welcome and will go out of their way to help you during your stay.

The only reason we probably wouldn't return is there isn't enough in Elounda itself to merit our staying in that part of the island again.
