“Amazing view at the Portobello”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

We stayed here for the first time based on previous trip advisor reviews and were more than happy with our choice.

After a 12 hour flight delay it was going to take something special - we arrived just as the sun rose from behind the mountains and watched the sea and sky turn pink and orange from our balcony - just beautiful and worth getting up early for at least once! the view is fab any time of day with boats coming and going and great for watching the world go by!

The apartments are typical basic Greek and just as expected - air con is included in the price which saved us 120 euros compared to other places. They are cleaned every 3 days which suited us - we don't like getting woken up by the cleaners every day. They do empty the bins every day though so it doesn't get unhygienic.

The pool and bar were lovely - very peaceful when we were there which suited us. The pool is a bit deep for an average female (5 ft 5) - I couldn't touch the bottom but there were airbeds etc to use and it makes it better for swimming with no shallow end.

Overall we loved our choice of apartment. Amazing view and peaceful but only a few minutes walk to the town. Elounda is lovely and we hope to come back next year and to the Portobello

Well, we have just returned from the Corali and what can I say - roll on June next year! We love the studios and the Bellos family. As I keep telling Eleni she is my family and treasured by my husband and I. Yannis takes such a pride in the gardens and general upkeep of the accommodation. Lovely Jubbly Yannis!! Mary, their daughter is always so polite and helpful and seems to have an answer to all my questions! (and I do ask a lot don't I Mary!) Her command of English is impeccable. Big thanks to Maria who works tirelessly behind the bar, providing a variety of food, drinks and icecreams.

When we are out and about in Elounda we always tell people to pop round to the studios and apartments as to see is to believe. They are ideally located with plenty of beautiful restaurants to enjoy nearby. Rooms are clean and cleaned regularly. Big plus - the air-conditioning is included in the price. Our favourite will always be the Anemomylos which is situated next door. Call in and say hi to Maria and Spiros and I guarantee you will return to taste their fabulous menu.

Been back home for two days and looking forward to next year already!

We have recently returned from our third visit to the Corali Studios and have booked for June 2012 before all the studios go!! From the time you arrive to the time you leave you are made so welcome by the lovely Bellos family and their staff. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. The rooms are adequately equiped for self catering if you so wish and are very clean. The views from the balcony are great showing the distant hills, views of the harbour and town. Right in front of the apartments is the beach where shades and beds are available with a small charge and lovely blue water for snorkelling and swimming. We spend out days relaxing around the quiet pool being spoilt by Eleni. The gardens are beautifully kept by Yannis who is constantly working on them. We enjoy the early evening get togethers around the pool bar we we meet up with others who like us are returning guests from previous years. At times its like a 'club reunion' all enjoying the hospitality of the amazing Bellos family. Following a five minute walk around the harbour you are in the town centre where there are many bars and restauraunts to tempt you. A favourite restauratn of ours if the Anemomylos which is directly next door to Corali so if you have had 'one too many' you do not have far to walk. Mary and Myra are always on hand to assist/ advise with bookings of trips, restaurants, taxis, car hire and transfers. We have made the journey from Heraklion to Elounda by Taxi in the past but this year hired a car ( arranged by Myra) which we picked up at the airport and after our 17days holiday drove back to the airport . With the cost of taxi transfer approx 80 Euros each way , the cost of the vehicle was good value as it enabled us to travel around the island visiting the different areas and beaches. We will definatley do this again next year. If you are considering Elounda for you holiday vacation then do not pass up the chance of staying at Corali or Portobello apartments as I am sure you would not be disappointed. We are looking forward to returning and meeting up with other 'Corali Club' members in June 2012. Jan & Bobby Ross

Room Tip: Request sea views on booking.
