    No wifi, no pool - disappointing

    We booked the elounda appartment as it was available, the Expedia site stated a pool and wifi. When we arrived it was clear that there was no pool, which was a huge disappointment for us, though the owner didn't seem too concerned or bothered and just said the sea is below us. Also, if we wanted wifi we had to walk outside to the church to use it, again this was very more and misleading with the advertisement and both the reference of the POOL and WIFI should be removed as it is misleading. The owner was very pushy for payment upfront which led me to be a bit sceptical that he thought we would leave as the advert was wrong. There were also huge holes in the mosquito net, the air con outside leaked, the toilet stopped working, the tv was ancient (again not as described in the advert) it had 4 channels each of which were like watching snow fall and listen to static! I would urge people not to go by the pictures only, they are misleading. Expedia, We are disappointed by this and it is not what we have come to know from your quality of service.

    Pros: Cleaned daily, fridge, freezer and plenty of plates /cups.

    Cons: Bring the description up to date!

    Fantastic experience with convenience of hotel

    If you want to stay in a real Cretan home, this is your place. The owner who runs the place is incredibly helpful and kind, as is the cleaning staff, the location is superior- in the heart of Elounda, a fantastic beach town on the outskirts of Saint Nikolas. It was like a fairytale from another era. You must stay here for a real treat. The back yard has a small pool and looks out onto a ridge of mountains the sun sets behind. You won't regret it!


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    pas de piscine partagée alors que c'était prévu. C'est un scandale.
