Holiday Just back from a week at this fabulous venue. What more can I say - from the minute we checked in nothing was too much trouble, we felt we were treated as family ! The accommodation was spotless & the food was incredible. Thank you so much Dimitri, Julia, Manos, Hayley, Monica, Pat & the lovely Jenny looking after us in the bar, we had the best time and can’t wait to come back again in June. One more mention - the beautiful Rocco who was a little superstar ❤️
A great place to stay We had a lovely stay at The Olive Grove Apartments, exploring the local area which we had never visited before. These apartments are in a prime position if you are visiting Elounda. The beach is a 5 minute walk away and there are great many excellent restaurants within a similar distance. We had a 2 week stay and ate out for every meal in a variety of local places, we were never disappointed, whilst the Olive Grove can provide an excellent breakfast. On arrival it became apparent that a large number of the guests are regular visitors and this fact alone speaks a great deal of the quality of care you will get at The Oliver Grove. This is a family run business and one which the family nurture and take great pride in. Many thanks in particular to Demetri, Julia, Manos, Hayley and Jenny behind the bar. You made our holiday very enjoyable, you were always helpful and welcoming and we will return when the opportunity arises. You deserve 5 stars and we wish you all every success in the future.
Another Wonderful Stay Thank you to Dimitri, Julia, Manos, Hayley, Monica, Pat and Jenny for another lovely stay at Olive Grove. Thanks also to Rocco and Daisy for their entertainment! The changes that you have made are splendid and give the Reception / bar area a very classy look. At night it is most welcoming with all the lovely lighting. Your new menu is excellent and very imaginative. The apartment was lovely with a superb view of the Elounda Hills. As usual, it was kept spotless by both Hayley and Pat. Thank you for all the help from everyone – it was most appreciated. Looking forward to booking our next trip as soon as we can. Much love, John and Margaret
First time to Olive Grove in Elounda and Definitely not the last!! Fantastic stay at Olive Grove Aptmnts. Rooms clean, A/c worked well. Pool and bar area fantastic and prices very reasonable. Manos & Hayley, Dimitri & Julia, Jenny & Monica and the rest of the staff were faultless in there efforts to help and nothing was to much trouble even down to help in filling in PLF and Covid testing. Big mention to Rocco the French bulldog for his ability to cadge a small morsel off my Sister!! Well done Rocco!! We met some great people and have already booked for next year. Well done to everyone there!! Keep up the great job you’re doing Dave, Annette, Di and John
A sweet return After a long wait, PCR tests and PLFs we finally got back to Olive Grove apartments. Our welcome was as warm as ever and nothing is too much, as usual. We loved the new extended bar and the cocktail menu. If you’ve never been to Olive Grove apartments in Elounda you are missing a treat. You’ll love the warm welcome, friendliness, helpfulness and beautifully clean accommodation. Thank you again to Mano, Hayley, Julia, Dimitri, Jenny, Monika and Pat. Looking forward to our next year’s visit 😊😊
A gem of a place to stay My sister Paula and I stayed here earlier this month and had a fab holiday. It's 2 years since my last holiday here, and they have made great changes to the place, but the fabulous family welcome is still the same. You couldn't ask for a better welcome, everyone is so glad to see you and can't do enough for you when you're there. The apartments are very spacious, clean and tidy. You can eat and drink at the poolside bar, and the Friday night BBQ and Quiz is a must. All restaurants, shops and the beach are very close by. Love to all the family and hopefully see you next year.
Perfection all round! The excellent reviews we'd read before arriving, were all absolutely spot-on! We understand now why couples & families return time & time again. We enjoyed a fabulous week being well-looked after by Manos, Hayley, Jenny, Julia & the rest of the 'team'. Their customer service is second to none & this family work hard for the enjoyment of their customers. Nothing is too much trouble, everywhere is spotless, they are friendly & welcoming, they take time to chat & even left a lovely bottle of fizz & note in our apartment to congratulate our daughter & boyfriend, after he'd popped that special question! Our apartment (28) was spacious, with a lovely big balcony and was great for our group of 4 adults. It's serviced throughout the week too. The bar area was very comfortable and prices good. The food we had there was tasty and again well priced. The pool was very clean and looked after and we never ever struggled to get sun beds at any time of the day - after the rat race you can face around other pools in holiday resorts, this is wonderful! Other guests, and all those we met had been here before, were friendly & helpful giving us tips of where to visit, and restaurants to try etc. Its less than 5 minutes to the lovely beach, you're out straight into the main streets of Elounda with shops, bars, tavernas etc and yet it's so quiet in the apartments. Just perfect really! It's not often that we return to places, as there's so many places to visit but we will definitely return to the Olive Grove Apartments. Thank you to everyone there for a wonderful holiday 🙂
A Hidden Secret in the heart of Elounda Please, Please, doooooo go there (but not when we want to go ha ha). Absolutely first rate...central location, beautiful pool, absolutely clean apartments and the family team are amazing. You want something they ask "when"? Found the place quite by accident but have already booked for next year!
What a gem of a find! On our fifth stay in Elounda, following a last minute change in accommodation due to covid we were transferred to Olive Grove Apartments. What a find! Run by a lovely family in an ideal location within a few minute’s walk from beach, restaurants and harbour. The family could not be more welcoming and helpful. The accommodation and pool were very clean and the pool boasted masses of sunbeds, so even when full, no one would be disappointed. Will definitely be returning. Special shout out for Okeanis restaurant (just around the corner) and new find, Mylos snack bar opposite the beach by the windmill.
Difficult times / great trip We were lucky enough to be able to get to the Olive Grove Apartments for the first two weeks of August. The changes made to the bar area are lovely and really open up the whole area. We felt safe throughout our stay and whilst the wearing of masks / face guards by Manos and his staff must have been very difficult to put up with in such temperatures all members of staff were attired with full PPE. Of course not even Covid19 could dampen the spirits at the Olive Grove Apartments and we had a great time. There was plenty of banter around the pool / bar and a great time was had by both new and returning guests. It was obviously different this year due to the restrictions, but what didn't change was the warm welcome. We had a wonderful and safe time.
We strive to be the best in our field to make you even more comfortable.
