Thanks Manolis for another lovely break in the Cretan Mountains. This is our third visit and it was lovely to return. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the mountain views and the lovely sunny weather. We don't usually return to the same place but guess we'll be back again!! Special thanks to Mandol for looking after us.

My husband & I have just returned from a month-long vacation in Greece & stayed at Eleonas for 4 nights. At first, when we were driving there, we were concerned that Eleonas was going to be very isolated. While it is in the country, there is so much to do & see within a short drive. Eleonas is the brainchild... More

We stayed here on our university field trip and it was the complete opposite to what I would normally stay at with my family as I have been to Crete many times but never stayed inland. This hotel was by far the best I have ever stayed at. The food is superb with great choice at breakfast and dinner. We... More

All praiseworthy has already been said here. But why should I not repeat what is true once again? Even if "nehoe from Fort Lauderdale, Florida" in his / her? review writes that the attribut "paradisiac" is exaggerated, I still maintain that everything is perfect here. The entire area was very nice. The houses are widely distributed on a hill. Whoever... More

Probably the nicest place we've ever been on holiday and the only place we have ever discussed revisiting as once you leave, you want to be back there ASAP. Amazing natural beauty in the area and they've done a really nice job with the gardens of the estate, as you walk through beautiful flowers, herbs, fruits, olives growing everywhere. As... More

I found Eleonas via trip advisor and was not disppointed (been meaning to write a review for months). I went with my daughter and was concerned that lack of a beach was going to be an issue but we had a lovely time. We went on some great walks and back in time for beautiful fresh breakfasts, enjoyed the pool... More

We spent a whole week at Eleonas in late September (2014), my review for some reason did not register at the time?! Manolis and his family have done a splendid job of making the most of a sizeable olive grove in one of the most beautiful & serene locations in Greece! The facilities are impeccable, from the quality of the... More

I have been a couple of times in the village before, but never in this specific hotel. We stayed with friends, for one night only, but will definitely come back in the future. The owner greeted us with a big smile and was always helpful and 100% professional, in all aspects. We got two rooms up on the hill, a... More

Stayed in Eleonas during our Christmas holidays and enjoyed every minute of it. Fantastic apartments, stylish, warm and clean. We loved the fireplace and the natural environment around the apartments. There are a great number of trails for walking nearby and if someone visits during summer, the sea is less than 20' away. Finally I would like to point out... More

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
