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

We werent disappointed, on arrival we were given a complimentary drink to cool us down and then taken to our accommodation, we were given one of the loft rooms/houses which has two levels... More

We spent a week here in August 2014. It was excellent in every way. The hotel is well designed so that the suites are not overlooking one another. We had a family suite which was very nicely done inside. The rooms have wifi but it is a bit slow and can be temperamental at times. The pool is great, never... More

If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay in Crete, then this place is for you. The cottages are clean and are located above the mountain town of Zaros. I opted to pay for the half board which included breakfast and dinner, and I'd have to say that the meals were very good. One night we had live... More
