We loved Eleonas so much last time (2013) that we came back this summer as well. The food is wonderful (we had the half board option), the staff amazing, friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the local area. The views from our cottage are stunning - mountains and the gorge. Beautiful pool area and taverna - all just perfect really! Very... More

We have just returned from a week long holiday at Eleonas and enjoyed a truly fantastic experience. This was our first holiday with our 8 month old baby and the team did everything possible to make us (including our son) feel welcome. The cottages have everything that you need, are kept clean and have fantastic views of the area. I... More

My daughter, granddaughter and myself have just returned from a week spent at Eleonas, run by Manolis and his family. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was. We felt pampered. Manolis and Diamond( our waitress) looked after our every need. It is a tranquil place surrounded by olive groves.Each cottage has a beautiful private terrace with the most comfortable... More

I grew up Greek in the US and married my beautiful American wife. We had a wedding in America and then a small one in Crete. We wanted to get away for a few days and Eleonas was something I booked and had no clue what to expect. Well the food was 5 star, the room was spotless and the... More

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
