Staying on this part of the island is in itself something of an adventure; whilst the rooms do not offer the highest standards of accommodation, a shower in the morning can be a bracing event, the personality of the family team that run the hotel added to the excellence of the home spun cuisine combine to make a stay here...

I agree with much of what other reviewers have said - very friendly and welcoming host, Niko; good food in the taverna - very tasty and succulent goat kokkinisto, grilled veg a nice change from horta\horiatiki; generous raki and yoghurt with honey and walnuts. Wine, more expensive than the norm of about 7€ - it was over 9€ a kilo... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Clean, no frills B&B with 9 (?) sea view rooms (we were on the bottom floor and still had a very nice view). No TV or internet but we stayed there for the beautiful nearby beach so we honestly didn't even notice that stuff was missing. Owners were very friendly and also own the family-run taverna... More

We did enjoy our stay here. Simple but super-spacious rooms, lovely see view, relaxing sofa close to the pool (i read there whole mornings). It is difficult to enjoy anything better than this if you want to stay away from everything and everybody. The restaurant is one of the best in the area, so no need to search. Very friendly... More

As a family of four we stayed for four nights at the hotel, 6 km away from the actual beach. Overall, very happy with service and friendliness of Glykeria and her brother Nikos. Used the swimming pool a couple of times as well and discovered hidden bays nearby. Room had air-con with no extra cost and a small fridge but... More

We decided on Saturday to take a two days trip to Elafonisi on Sunday, the day after, to see the beautiful beach. We called Glykeria Hotel at 6.00pm, and they had no problem at all in reserving us a three bed room for just the two of us, for a twin room price, for just one night! The room was... More

This is a long over-due review. We were there 2 years ago and considered going back this year though we are going to another island. Glykeria Rooms was a great place to journey through that part of Crete. The accomodations were basic but clean. The food at the taverna across the street was amazing. We enjoyed Elafonissi but also enjoyed... More

We are huge animal lovers and found three puppies in the middle of nowhere, they were hungry, thirsty, very dirty and exhausted. We attempted on finding a rescue centre for them, but none had places, we were advised to put them down so we seriously considered shipping them over to uk but that costs around £500 for each dog. Fortunately... More
