“Already planning to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We were looking for a quiet hotel far away from the hustle and bustle of Arachova and we found it! Actually, we never left the place! Elatos had everything we needed: a restaurant, an indoor pool, a spa, a playground for the children and hospitable staff.
Mr. Vassilis is by far the friendliest of the staff (he has been working there since 1996!) as well as new blood Mr. Apostolis at the spa.
We read below a couple of reviews that there is a charge for using the fireplace. That is no longer the case. I guess the new management/ownership have changed a couple of things...the chalets are quaint, homey and so unique. You just wish you could buy one!

Room Tip: Chalets 13, 14, 15, 22, 23 and 24 are in walking distance to the reception, pool, restaurant, cafe/b...

We have spent a long weekend in December and we found the resort the best we have ever been in the area. Chalets are warm, very clean, well decorated with all facilities and service is very good. The resort has been recently managed from Aria hotels and you can see already the difference with regards to the quality and professionalism of all services :Sleeping,( Cocomat mattresses in the bedrooms), amenities,good food, decoration. Club house is one of the best places of the resort where you can have your drinks and enjoy the evenings next to the fireplace.
We recommend it for all the people who are looking for resorts very well located, equipped and high quality of services.
We will return to this fantastic place!!!

Wow! A unique resort! We stayed for Xmas with our kids. Lovely warm chalet, great views, the location is amazing! Friendly staff and yummy food. Our kids loved the kids' entertainment program. Renovation in main building is good, it needs though some more touches. We think of going again in New Year's.

As my choice was limited between Arachova (Greece) and Switzerland I stayed for a weekend in the Elatos resort in Arachova Greece!!!!! (the financial crisis in my country does not allow for expensive trips.)
I was surprised, amazed and extremely happy to see the tremendous changes that occurred in this place.

The chalets have been upgraded, the new managers Aria have transformed a sleepy resort to an unmarked destination, great food, great bar, nice cigar bar as well, beautiful pool, a very welcome change for a great destination. Don’t miss it. Even my friend who invited me could afford it. !!!!!

There is no question that Elatos is built in one of the choicest mountain locations in Greece. It is stunning, whichever season you choose to go.

However.. The chalets are downright basic and far below the Alpine luxury standard one may expect given the very high rates they charge. Let's call it rustic..and leave it at that..

The food is also rather basic - forget gourmet or ever quality Greek taverna/restaurant. It's more like roadside motel cafeteria.

On the plus side: service is friendly and competent. They've been there forever, so they know their stuff.

Overall, it's a very pleasant place, but at what they charge you expect Gstaad. And you end up with.. Grinch!

The Elatos cResort & Health Club is supposed to be one of the very best in Greece. I had the chance to have only a coffee by the cafeteria upon the swimming pool. Was a very interesting rustic space within the main building,and very peaceful (of course i ve been there just before the start of the high season which is begin of Oct.) The price for two coffees was though extremely high as we paid 10 euros for two capuccinos. The outer space was increadible with so many green and little houses around the main building that seemed we were rather somewhere else instead in Greece.

Traveled with a friend and stayed in one of the lovely wooden houses, had our own fireplace (wood for the fire place is charged extra). we had some snow on our first day which made the experience even better. On of the best locations in Arachova area! Almost half an hour drive from the town of Arachova

Room Tip: All wooden houses are unique!
