Lena Apartments
Reviewed 18 October 2016

The Lena Apartments are located right opposite the small harbour beach, literally 10 metres, absolute plus for beach lovers. They are located just on the outskirts of the village, on the road that goes from Elounda to Plaka.
The room we had was fine, plenty of storage space, comfy beds. Unfortunately we were in room no.8 (see a previous review), the view from our terrace was of an unfinished building.However, somebody has to go in that room and for our two weeks, it was us. Still it is what is, so have an extra glass of ouzo and the view can be anything you want. The bar was good, prices the same as throughout the resort. On a sunday night a residents bar b q was held.This was very good, food was lovely and good value for 13 euros per person with half a litre of wine included. Nice way to meet and chat to other residents.
The cleaner, Ionna, was lovely and worked hard always with a smile. The one criticism I do have is that the bin in the bathroom wasn't emptied as regularly as other place we have been to. This wasn't the cleaners fault, looks like it was down to a set schedule.
As for Elounda it is a brilliant place. From Lena, you turn right and it is a 5 minute walk to the main square. In Elounda they are two large supermarkets, known as the 'green one' and the 'orange one'. As you walk towards them you'll see why - their signs are in those colours. From our experience we found the green one to be better. For prices and for choice of products If you turn left out of Lena, there is a smaller supermarket, this is ok and is good for a quick shop. Plenty of choice in Elounda for places to eat. We ate at the Cypriana, Dimitris and our favourite was To Paradosiako.
Would recommend visiting Spinalonga Island. The boats go from the harbour 10 euros return per person. If you decide to go, I would advise you to get one of the early boats, starting 0930. As the day goes on the Island gets very busy.
I would recommend the Lena Apartments, they are ideal for a visit to Elounda and even more ideal if you are a beach lover. Elounda is a fantastic resort - GO.

Room Tip: If you possibly can, avoid room no.8. Lovely room awful view from your terrace

We have stayed in Elounda many times over the years and have just returned from

our first stay at the ideally situated Lena - a family run accommodation. Our room was a large spotlessly clean with side sea view,, fresh towels every three days and always hot water. Good choice of bar snacks (real chips) and drinks at reasonable prices. Many returnees which will include us in the future.
