We spent four nights at Elounda Heights Apartments and Studios during our week in Crete and were overall pleased with the experience. As many reviews have shared, Vangelis runs a beautiful, adults only mini-resort. The hike up to Elounda Heights from town is a bit intense, but well-worth it for the property's breathtaking views. We had a studio apartment, which was clean and spacious, equipped with coffee making supplies and fresh fruit. The view from our patio was stunning and, despite nearby neighbors, our studio felt quite private. Service at Elounda was fantastic, from the pool bar to dinner and everything in between, staff was welcoming, helpful and friendly. The pool and bar area was nice enough to entice us away from the seaside beaches for an afternoon.
We joined the Sunday boat outing and it was the highlight of our week on Heraklion. The boat took us around Spinalonga to several gorgeous swimming and fishing areas. We were supplied with yummy food and drinks throughout the day. We also had dinner at Elounda Heights one evening, which was delicious.
The only downside of our stay was that we found the bed to be terribly uncomfortable. The mattress, which seemed a bit old and worn, was on a concrete base and it was sufficient to cushion the concrete. We had a really tough time sleeping on it. The mattress is the only complaint we have for an otherwise perfect stay, but the lack of a restful night's sleep really put a damper on an otherwise perfect holiday.
