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.

The hotel is located in the middle of nowhere - it is quite some drive to Elafonissi beach. Rooms are very small, and owners are very busy with their taverna to provide some service for the hotel. There are no other places around to eat or walk - you absolutley need a car if you stay in this place. However,... More

Stayed here in the middle of October 2014. Rooms very clean with hot water. Great views of the sea. We'll away from it all. Owner really helpful. Great swimming pool. Across the road the hotel has a brilliant taverna serving fresh well cooked traditional Greek food. Would definitely go back. Down the road I visited a traditional Greek Orthodox monastery... More

a bit far from the Elafonissi beach, but good choice for clean simple rooms. the pool was nice (though very cold water in October), breakfast was good. service was perfect. for 1-2 nights it was the best option in the area and worth the cost - 50 euro per night, including breakfast.

Basic but clean rooms, nice views and near the best beaches in Europe Elafonissi and Kedrodados. The guys running the place are really nice and friendly and the food is top notch for Crete. Highly recommended

My partner and I had a lovely one night stay at Glykeria. As we are both Cretan living abroad we enjoyed a mini homeland escape at Elafonisi and Kedrodasos which are a breath away from Glykeria. Our room was spacious and clean with a jaw-dropping view of the sunset over the cliffs. The owners are truly wonderful hosts and the... More
