The Elpida is a lovely hotel, run by a very kind, hard working and friendly family. It has every basic necessity you need for your stay and has a nice, clean pool and bar/restaurant area that is open all day until around midnight. The hotel shop sells everything from cat food to washing powder and fresh milk and is also... More

I really don't want to be nasty about this hotel as no one was particularly unhelpful or rude to us there. And we really did have great time in Zakynthos, but only because we didn't really spend much time at the hotel. I don't know where to start, the rooms are extremely basic and small, so is the hotel area... More

We went in September. On arrival we were taken up the road 200 metres and given a 1 bed roomed flat above a small shop. I guess you could say that was the lucky bit for us. We stayed by the pool were I noticed a funny smell. My wife pointed to cat droppings under a nearby lounger, these things... More

I'll start with the basics because that is what this hotel is, basic. The room was clean and comfortable and just what you would expect from a Greek hotel with a two star rating. Yes the cooking facilities were slightly lacking (a two ring hob) but with food in the hotel and resort being so cheap, we never felt the... More

well, its another new year and once again we have been back to the Elpida. As we've said before, although we have been to many other countries and hotels we come back to the Elpida. The service was, as usual, with a ready smile and a warm welcome. We were fortunate enough to be there when dear Vana and Spiros... More

The staff provided a lot of help and great advice for our stay in Zakynthos. It was very beautiful – and I don’t think that we have stayed at a more hospitable or friendly hotel. Our room was extremely comfortable with fantastic view of the beautiful Alykanas by day or night. We had time for sunbathing – which I love... More

We booked this place because we wanted a cheap week in Alykanas to be close to our friends who run the local Alkyonis Taverna near by. We were warmly welcomed by Spiros and family and this hotel did not disappoint. It was excellent value for the money we paid. The hotel has a warm, friendly feel and the helpful staff... More

It was our first visit to Zakynthos Island and our perfect honeymoon travel, too. We wanted the perfect destination and the unique resort that best fits to our dreams, style and budget – we get it at Elpida hotel. The fresh air, the kind service, the very good organized hotel with all facilities ( swimming pool, snack bar, big rooms,... More
