very cheap holiday in a 2 star studio however saying that was clean but basic. Pool area fab and never struggled with a sun bed. In a good location only a 10 mins walk into centre of Elounda. The Greeks are great and would recommend anyone holiday in this great country. A couple of pointers if you are going to... More

We have just returned from a week here. Like the title says, missing the hospitality, warmth and welcome that we recieved from Penelope so very much. The accomodation is basic and it is rated 2* so we weren't expecting it to be luxurious & we were not planning to 'cook' (others did whilst we were there & the smell of... More

We visited these apartments on the first week of October 2012 – this being the last week of their season. Even so, we were picked up from the main road by Penny and taken the 400 metres into the olive groves to our apartment. The room(s) are similar to what we are used to in Greece with a 3rd bed...

We went here in August 2011, but it took me this long to write a review-whoops. The Penelope apartments are in a beautiful location amongst the olive trees and our room had a lovely view across to the sea. We spent many an evening sitting on the balcony with a beer before we ventured out! It was very peaceful, and... More

Beautiful view of elounda bay from these apartments, this is the only good point. The rooms are not particularly clean, the furniture is old and dated. The towels and bed linen weren't changed once during our stay, the bins were only emptied twice. The bathroom is tiny there isn't a window or a fan, there was an awful pungent smell... More

Staying here was my first holiday abroad, Penelope was lovely and very welcoming. We had room 16 which had a fantastic view. The apartment was a good size with a double bed and a spare single. The kitchenette was equiped with two electric hobs,fridge, kettle and toaster as well as plates, knives and forks. The bins were emptied every other... More

We just got back from a week's stay at Penelope's, booked last minute. Although the accommodation is quite a trek from the main square it is worth it for the fantastic views and it's so peaceful.

We stayed in these apartments in June for a week. They were very clean and the kitchen area had everything you needed for self catering. The bathroom was on the small side but adequate.
