t They are opposite Spiros Taverna but be warned they are very basic.
Hi the apartments are basic but thats fine for a self catering holiday they were clean but could do with updating, the only problem we had was the pre-booked taxi which i paid £100 for a return trip to the airport when we arrived we had to look for the taxi which took a hour then they gave us a mini bus we travelled about 10k then was transfered to a car in the middle of nowhere, anyway we reach our apartment and had a good two weeks holiday,But on the return trip we rang and spoke to the taxi company they said they pick us up at 10.15 to take us to the airport but they never turn up so we had to pay for a private taxi which cost 50euro's we arrived at the airport with 5minutes to spare not good, so if you pre-book a taxi DON'T USE DELTANET_CORFU TAXI, been back a week still trying to get a refund from the co-op no joy as yet, phone keeps going dead after staying on the line for 40 minutes
Just come back from 6 days at these apartments, no one to greet us when we arrived just a key in the door and our name on a piece of paper stuck to the door, very very basic and the owners sister who was the cleaner seen once on our stay just to tell us in very abrupt tones when we were to get out of the apartment (which we already knew anyway) was not a great ambassador for her brothers accommodation. Beds were very uncomfortable new mattresses would be a definate plus. No problems with the resort lovely and friendly but would never go back to this particular accommodation very disappointed as in 30 years of going to different islands the Greek people have always been wonderful and friendly, this one woman spoilt the whole experience for us.
My husband and I have stayed at Elena many times over the last several years and would highly recommend it. At first we took our 2 daughters along and in recent years, due to my husbands poor health, I have been back with both daughters. These family run apartments are ideal in many ways and apart from the excellent service the family themselves made us feel very welcome.
I struggled to find recent reviews for the Elena apartments so having literally just come back from two weeks (August 2008) I thought I would add my thoughts.
Have not been to the Elena apartments since 2006 so slightly out of date, but as only one review thought that an old one was better than none !
When we first arrived we were a bit disappointed with the decor of the appartments, feeling we'd been transported back to the seventies. But when we got used to it, we felt very much at home and being on the top floor we had a massive balcony with absolutely stunning views of the mountains. The lady who cleans (and who owns the appartments too) is second to none. She came to clean every other day and did a great job. I would certainly return here.
