“A wonderful stay to repeat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

On july the 12th and 13th, we stayes in Elixirion guesthouse.

It's really a very lovely, idyllic and very tranquil place.
When we arrived, it was very hot and our friendly hostess had put fresh water in the refrigerator!
We had a very clean and comfortable room and bathroom. We also had a terrace with a wonderful view on the bay.
We took breakfast on the terrace next to the small beach and the blue sea.
Maria is a very good cook: every day she makes a different breakfast with cakes, pastry, pancakes, rice pudding, sweet fruit.....
A place to recommend!

The room is a bit small but nicely decorated with relaxing colours. The mattresses are really great and guarantee long hours of comfortable sleep. The air-condition worked well. The breach in front is a bit difficult to enter but with very clean waters. What is superb is certainly the breakfast. Every bit of it carefully cooked by the hands of the hostess and nothing is missing (coffee, sweets, salty stuff, fruits, cakes etc), Would certainly reccomend!

one of the best stays in a guesthouse in greece!
A warm welcome by Maria and Dimitris!
the rooms welcome us to the traditional Mani with the best way!
are like works of art, I stayed in Superior double room very comfortable with beautiful view!
the construction of the hotel which is made from stone makes the rooms to be cool and the noon with Air-conditioning that is good for the room is super!!!
super breakfast from maria every day was something special for us !!!
we will come again!!!

notice that mani is a place for few people!! you have to like the traditional creece!!! and the peacefull holidays!!!!

I actually never stayed to this place. I booked it via booking, but I received a call from the owner telling me that treed not available rooms and I had to cancel the booking. The problem is that the booking system charge me 34 euro for canceling the whole stay.... Of course the problem is to the hotel management. If you can call it management . I called this morning and a young child answered the phone!!! There are many serious places to stay in the area. Avoid this one

We could not believe our eyes when we saw our room - a family-sized apartment with kitchen unit, table inside and outside on the private terrace - all just for the 2 of us! The views of the bay from our terrace were incredible and the room was furnished with love - we loved the stone bed (comfy!). Breakfast is very individual - homemade and traditional (though we would have probably preferred some toast and an egg and some fruit instead of the exclusively fried doughy breakfast). Great location also to explore the area from. Would definitely stay here again!
