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

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
