We had a great time at Elia Hotel. A small hotel with about 10 rooms in a quit setting. Nice rooms, beautiful gardens, big pool. Have a nice breakfast on the terrace with view on the Mediterranean. A good place for a mixed relax/excursion holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Elia Spa and hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The food was great . Locally sourced where possible, and delicious. Our room was very pleasant, roomy , with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Hope to return - a thing we rarely do... More

A lovely setting & the relax style make for a perfect rest. We went for the walking and it is all you could hope for with walks from the door step & easy access to more adventurous ones. The small staff couldn't be more helpful & the chef provided dinners that really satisfied the hungry walker.

Only 9 rooms in a converted farmhouse away from it all. Really don't want to say much more in case too many people know about it! Management and staff amazing, feels like you've been invited to a house party. Wonderful.

We loved it all! Fabulous location with stunning views. Peacefully quiet with lots of nooks and crannies in which to relax. Friendly and relaxed service with good walking from the door. Elia felt more like a house party than a hotel and we enjoyed the company. Spotlessly clean. A car is a must, but there is good access to NW... More

Hotel Elia was exactly what we were hoping for. A very warm welcome in a lovely, small country hotel with plenty of character and with all the modern comforts. We were lucky to get an upgrade on our room so we now had a large room on two levels, with a sitting area and the bathroom downstairs and a sleeping... More

We stayed for two weeks in October and from the outset were delighted with our experience. The hotel, which was once a farmhouse, is intimate and boutique in style. The rooms are comfortable, simply but tastefully furnished, and retain their authenticity and an original look. A major plus is the provision of facilities to make hot drinks! The choice of... More

Disappointingly, we would agree with some of the more negative reviews to-date. While Elia enjoys a beautiful position in a secluded, olive-grove setting with fabulous views, simple but good food, and a great pool, we just didn't feel that guests were treated in a way befitting these kind of rates. The room was quite dark, cheaply furnished, with temporary fixes... More

I make it a point never to respond to personal opinions as everyone is entitled to their own and are hotel does not suit everyone so I will only respond to half of this review. However I do find it necessary however to respond to negative comments concerning inaccurate facts and referring to the prices we have charged other guests... More

We stayed for 3 days in September this year, and wished we had booked for a longer stay, so we have booked for 5 days next year! I don't really need to say any more do I? The atmosphere is more like a country house than an hotel, service is friendly and efficient. Food is excellent, accommodation is fine, not... More

Far from crowded places, hidden in the mountains in a fantastic surrounding, but only 10 minutes away from Kolymbari you will find quietness, rest and a very friendly service. They do everything they can to offer you a pleasant stay. Rooms are clean and good furnished. Evening dinner has to be ordered at breakfast and everyone has the same food,... More
