We booked into the Elpida last minute due to our original hotel cancelling us. The Elpida is in such a beautiful area and if, like us, you enjoy a quieter non party place it is superb. It was slightly out of season so we virtually had the hotel to ourselves and consequently we were upgraded to a beautiful Villa (kept beautifully clean and tidy by Maria) with spectactular views. Everything about the hotel is traditionally Cretan and the gardens, full of fresh fruit, were a delight. The pool area is beautiful and no matter where you are around the hotel, you have really fabulous views of Mirabello bay.
The choice and quality of the food was excellent with Cretan dishes served every day and Sophia, the chef, is a little delight! Theodore, or Dori as he likes to be called, is a great conversationalist and does make a superb Margarita and White Lady! Nico, the Manager, is a mind full of information and our thanks to you for finding the box that allowed us to watch the Eurovision Song Contest (sad people that we are!!)
All in all, a truly wonderful holiday and we were looked after so well by all at the Elpida. This Hotel also has the advantage of being very close to many memorable sites and villages with Agios Nicolaos being the nearest port and the secluded beach coves are fab.
Thanks to all - see you again!
