The rooms are ok, the bathrooms are simple but clean. The village Chrisoskalitissas lies about 6km from the “famous” beach of Elafonissi. The hotel has a nice, small pool; a taverna lies across the road. The atmosphere is very relaxing. There are several other rooms and inns in the village, which are not listed here on tripadvisor. One can risk... More

Good clean room with a large comfortable bed and balcony with a nice view. The bathroom had one of the best showers we had in Crete. The restaurant across the road serves good local Cretan food and the owners are very nice and laid back. The only minus is that it is right in the middle of nowhere, so you... More

We drove by this place and decided to ask for a room. We rented a room on the ground floor, the second from the pool. Room was really pretty, beautifull big bed and the best shower we had in Crete. Stunning views from the pool. Airconditioning worked well and no noise at night except for the crickets. I hate crickets.... More

It's a quite place far from the tourism of Elafonissis, nice view of sea and sunset, very kind service and special cuisine. The hotel is very clean, new but ordinary with a little pool, simple furniture. All things I'm looking for. The shower has no curtain but there is no problem with hot wether.

This family run place has clean, simple rooms a pool and great Taverna with a view over the bay and a cooling breeze after a day in the sun. The family that runs the place is friendly and helpful. So, a good place to stay so as to get to Elafonisi before the crowds.

We appreciate the simplicity and beauty of this hotel and taverna. Excellent food cooked by Michalis, the best administration by Ria and Nikos tells us everything about the Elafonissi area in every language you will need. Just put your watch in your bag and fell at home. Time will stop and life will be good at Glykeria.

I first went to Greece as a child on family holidays in the 70s and this place reminded me of how it used to be... a big room with a very dodgy lock, basic furnishings, a hand-held shower in a teeny bathroom, the only difference was plentiful hot water gushed forth. Good value, quiet in the low season, meals over... More

Delightful place set peacefully outside the nearest resort of Elafonissi. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. The owner was charming and we probably enjoyed the best food here whilst in Crete. Freshly cooked traditional Cretan food. Probably our favorite stopover during our time in Crete.
