We booked Eleonas for the first week of our honeymoon. The cottage we stayed in had a whirlpool bath for couples like us and was small but well laid out. We stayed half board and the food was wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the rabbit casserole, however be warned that the rabbit is cooked on the bone. The pool was a... More

The houses were all built around existing trees, so it feels as if they have always been there. a very cosy tavern with great food. Kids find animals to interact with. The pool is a little fresh towards the end of the season, but a 40min drive to Komos beach was also not a problem. The hikes around the area... More

Stunning location amidst the rugged mountains in the middle of Crete. The hotel cottages are scattered over the hillside, so you get a good feeling of privacy. We were here 2 weeks and didn't get bored once, there's plenty to do in the area. Manolis, the owner, provided a detailed map and suggested daytrips, all of which were unique, interesting,... More

We had a wonderful few days here and would love to have stayed longer. Room was laovely - we were at the very top of the hill. Really friendly atmosphere and I also enjoyed the opportunity to get involved in making some Greek food! Manolis was really helpful - as were all staff we met. Lovely walks all around and... More

I can only agree with all the other comments here - Eleonas is a delightful place - rooms are great, food is good and Manolis was exceptionally and genuinely welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be back. Just one thing to be aware of, we had one of the rooms at the top of the hill - its a long... More

We had a wonderful time at Eleonas, it's one of the most relaxing hotels i've ever stayed in. Rooms were great with wonderful views. Manolis was great, he sorted us out a lovely boat trip one day and was generally really helpful. He manages to give you all the information and help you need without being to much. The lady... More

We stayed here over the summer with our baby and toddler, excited by the reviews we had read on here, but also slightly worried that Eleonas wouldn't live up to our expectations. No need to worry - it was perfect! Manolis was so helpful and the waitress was just lovely with our kids, even taking our baby for a while... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Elaonas Cottage. I loved our cottage: lot of space inside, comfortable bed, small kitchen where U can make lovely mountain tea that is waiting for every guest for free, nice terrace where you can relax in the evening. Small swimming pool but surrounded with plants and grass that really make it nice to relax... More

We do not tend to go back to the same places but Zaros has got under our skin and it was wonderful to return to Eleonas. We were given a great welcome back and as it was our anniversary there were lots of nice additional touches. We tried a different room (7) which has 2 terraces & offered a greater... More

We usually work on the basis that the world is big place and therefore choose a different destination for our holidays. However Eleonas was so enjoyable in 2012 we returned this summer. There is a new pool bar and they now offer half board but the fantastic location, excellent friendly service and hospitality remains exactly the same. We have no... More
