My husband and I have just returned from these apartments and once again we were made to feel very welcome by Spiros and his family. Spiros remembered us even though we had only been there for a week two years ago! Room was what we expected, clean and comfortable (basic but as it is only a place to sleep it... More

Another great stay in the Elpida. Really happy to see Dennis and Soula, Spiro and Vana - we laughed a lot. I've been to many islands in Greece and I am fully aware of the star rating of the Elpida and maintain that the accommodation is of a high standard. As for the comment about Soula never smiling, I find... More

Once again, a superb holiday returning to a family who are real friends. My previous reviews go into more detail which I maintain. We have always stayed in the back apartments. I am just so glad that the Elpida have been able to remain open during Greece's very hard recession which many English tourists fail to recognise, and much to... More

We stayed at the Elpida for 2 weeks and had no complaints, Spiros and his mum and dad made us very welcome. Spiros has good English and even though his parents were not so fluent they always said hello and had a friendly smile. I do not understand people who have been saying they are rude or sullen, we always... More

We booked this holiday as our honeymoon and will definitely be returning with the kids next year. It was the Mrs first visit to Greece and she didn't know what to expect but she loved it. The rooms are ideal if you are just after a base; we used the kitchen to prepare breakfast/dinner and at times had food from... More

We were under no illusions when we booked this hotel that it was going to be basic, no frills, Greek self-catering accommodation. After reading many reviews about this hotel, we started to wonder whether it would exceed our expectations, however after just returning from a week there, it was truly a very disappointing, dirty, rundown place to stay. The apartment... More

I would rate this hotel about two to three stars. I have travelled quite a bit and wasn't expecting 5 star accommodation but was disappointed at the accommodation. I suppose it is just a room to get your head down at night but if a little cleaner and updated it would have been more comfortable. Spiros and family are friendly... More

We returned again this summer and had another lovely holiday - our third in Alykanas and our second at The Elpida. Reading other peoples' reviews, perhaps it does make a difference where your room is located as to what your stay may be like. I base a lot of my holiday bookings on Trip Advisor reviews and it's hard to... More
