Arriving in Elounda and finding our room at Markas apartments had been double booked what a nightmare you would think. But no it was a blessing in disguise. Stopping at Adrakos to sort out what we were going to do the owner said he had a room and what a room. Huge balcony looking over the bay beautiful terrace to have a drink or the fantasic food and clean comfortable rooms . The icing on the cake wonderful welcoming people from the owner's to the staff. Would recommend this place to anyone and we will be back

Not everything is about price, but it's nice to get a bargain for a change!
We had tried several of the bigger hotels & those that had rooms left were absolutely on drugs with their extortionate prices whilst most were fully booked. Luckily, Adrakos could fit us in for three nights (only) and did us a really good deal.
We had room 10 which had a lovely balcony & was spacious enough & well equipped. Our only comment was that we found the bed a little too hard for our liking, otherwise it was all good.
The pool area was nice enough & we swam quite a lot (for me, anyway!).
We ate twice in their restaurant & complimented the chef each time as the food was excellent, served hot & very tasty.
Regards service, the owner was very helpful and welcoming, but the star prize must go to the waitresses who were a huge credit to Adrakos.
Whilst we had struggled to find somewhere to stay and just happened across this hotel, we both agreed that we would go there out of choice next time in the area.

Good: Location, View, Pool
Bad: Service is something obviously not know to the managment team.
As we arrived (booking.com / Genious status) we have asked for some extra pool towels. In most hotels you will get them either for free or with a paid deposit which you will receive back after return of the towels. They told us that it will cost 5 euro per towel for the rent. We thought ok...bit expensive but we will take them. I have then asked for our free welcome drink which was stated on my booking.com reservation. They did not offer it before, so I had to ask for it. When this came up, the lady brought the towels. My girlfriend wanted to pay the 10 Euro, when the lady said no no...it was 10 per towel! This was a f..ing joke...so we refused to take them.
The lady then wished us a lot of fun with the free welcome drink (very sarcastic tone).
When we went to the pool we orderd some food at the snack bar. Instead of bringing the food and drinks to us to the pool side and our table, they told us that we have to come back in 10 minutes and have to pick it up by ourselfes. Come on......
I went to the snack bar 10 minutes later and had to wait for another 10 minutes there....we were the only guests ordering food in the whole hotel.
When I wanted to pay my bill by credit card, the lady told me that she prefers cash...when I told her that I don´t have enough, she unwillingly accepted my card.
Obviously the hotel has some financial issues, but they should not show that to their customers...otherwise those will run away and not come again...

Just returned from our second holiday at these apartments and it won't be our last. Firstly they have the best view there is to be found in Elounda. Rooms are spotlessly clean and are bigger than average. Kostas and his family are so welcoming, and the two resident boxers Ollie and Marco are a joy, always greeting you with a waggy tail.
Really good sized pool with plenty of loungers.
Very tasty breakfast with lovely fresh orange juice. Do not leave without eating at least one evening meal here, the food is outstanding! The beef fillet with a pistachio crust is to die for, and there are some really imaginative salads.

Adrakos apts are blessed with some fine views over Elounda. First we were greeted by Marcos the bull dog who loves a fuss before Costas, the owner checked us in. It is worth mentioning that bank account holders in Crete can only withdraw €60 per day and therefore a cash payment for your room is appreciated more than a card payment. To the room - which was bigger than anticipated. Two beds, kitchen with all necessary utensils. A shower, fresh towels and a TV. AC is available as is a plug with mosquito deterrents should the mosquitos like you. Wi-fi is available but be aware the signal is stronger in some places than others. In the morning if you are not fully self catering enjoy a Cretan breakfast overlooking Elounda. If you want a lazy day there is great swimming pool. Tip: don't underestimate the Cretan sun even when in water. In the evening have a meal or a drink on the terrace and watch over the harbour as the sun sets. Finally, if you want a child friendly place Adrakos is that with plenty of families there to enjoy the sun.
