Beautiful setting, spectacular views, challenging hikes in the area, excellent breakfast (free) and lunch/ dinner, extremely friendly staff (including the owner, who is working round the clock). Well suited for children with more activities than usual. All in all we had a great stay.

My husband and I are here from Canada for ten days with our eleven year old granddaughter and we can't say enough good things about this eco friendly resort. The owner Manolis and all of the staff have been most accommodating beyond what we expected. Manolis' mother is the cook and the meals are out of this world. We decided... More

This place is a real gem. The pictures barely do it justice and any description I give of the warm and genuine welcome we received would fall short. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable and our cottage had beautiful views of the mountains. Eleonas is in a very tranquil setting. The air is scented by the fresh... More

The moment you arrive to Eleonas you feel relaxed, Manolis built an amazing "small village" in the center of Crete, the view is amazing, the rooms are big and comfortable, the restaurant is so good that we ate all of our dinners there. It is a great and unique place, friendly and feels like you visited your own family. All... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Manolis and his team (special mention for Manda in the restaurant every evening) are fantastic, always ready to help with advise on where to go and what to see and how to get there. The accommodation is beautiful, the cottages are spacious and well spaced apart so you never feel too crowded. The beds... More

Alas we only stayed here one night on our way back from the south coast to heraklion airport. It's a great place: beautiful rural-mountainous setting, great rooms with all the comforts, including a huge bathtub, wifi, aircon etc. A perfect place in which to relax and discover the surroundings.

At risk of sounding insensitive, I felt almost guilty that the crisis had has no impact on our recent stay at eleonas this July. We did bring extra cash, although the eleonas and others took our Visa card. There is a safe in the room, but we felt no worries about security traveling around ... And certainly not in the... More

Manolis continues to make his hotel even more comfortable and welcoming. There is now a proper road all the way up to the door. He has a new map of the area for those who want to visit locally and a little further away. Mado continues to make everyone feel welcome in the restaurant.

So many highly satisfied visitors have written about Eleonas and it continues to provide fabulous facilities, wonderful Cretan hospitality and exceptional food. The majority of visitors to Crete don't venture far from the busy north coast resorts - they just don't know what they're missing! Well off the beaten track and in the foothills leading up to Mount Psiloritis, Manolis... More

Eleonas "cottages" are in actuality charming detached apartments set in beautifully maintained gardens on a spectacular hillside. Ours offered comfortable elegance, a private terrace, fresh flowers and fruit, a simple kitchen, everything one could ask. The grounds include a large pool, exercise area, and landscaping with labeled local plants. Breakfast buffet and dinner were excellent. Clearly marked hikes in the... More
