We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Elpida and were not disappointed.
The Hotel is adequate for what you want and is basic as with most Greek Hotels and appartments however it was clean and had everything we needed.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment which had a large balcony and a small kitchenette area and a separate bathroom. These were basic but perfectly fine for our stay and were clean.
The main pool and the childrens pool were a good size and the service which Denis and Denise the owners offer is excellent. They also do some of the best Pina Colada's, and we sampled a fair few! The cocktail prices were 2.50 - 3 euros which was very competitive and they were also extremely helpful if we had any requests or had any questions.
The area itself is great with good restaurants, bars and a fantastic beach. We had a car and travelled around other beaches, but Alykanas was our favourite. The water is very shallow and clear for many meters so is excellent for children.
There is also an excellent restaurant between Alykanas and Alkyes which was always busy.
Due to the economy many shops, restaurants and bars have reduced there prices hence please do not let the Euro put you off as you will find very competitive prices once you are there. For 3 adults and 1 child for an evening meal with a starter and main and drinks the average price was 42 euros.
The location of the Hotel is good with the beach a 10 minute walk away and bars and tavernas next door.
