We stayed recently at Elia for a walking holiday in western Crete. It could not have been better. The location, with a terrace looking down to the coast, and only the sound of crickets at night is perfect. The grounds, the rooms all looked after with great care. The staff friendly and helpful, the food great. It is also a... More

This beautifully renovated historic, old farmhouse is set in a wonderful Cretan landscape of olive trees and vines overlooking mountain ranges and the sea. The nine bedrooms are individually furnished and all have outside spaces allocated for relaxation. In addition, there is a super small pool which includes sun beds alongside it. The breakfast is extensive and focuses on locally... More

We have been hoping to stay here for a few years and finally we made it and it was well worth the wait! Intimate and personal without being intrusive. Jo, Gary and the Chef and Monda(?) were all naturally friendly and exceptionally helpful. Food was excellent, wholesome, good value and well worth staying for. We will be back!

Everything and more what you can expect from a holiday. We stayed at the villa on the premises of the hotel. We had the most incredible view. Jo, Monda, Gary and Takis make you feel at home. Service with a smile, always helpful and amazing food everyday. What a team. We will go back, that is for sure. A place... More

We had a great time at Elia Hotel. A small hotel with about 10 rooms in a quit setting. Nice rooms, beautiful gardens, big pool. Have a nice breakfast on the terrace with view on the Mediterranean. A good place for a mixed relax/excursion holiday.

A lovely setting & the relax style make for a perfect rest. We went for the walking and it is all you could hope for with walks from the door step & easy access to more adventurous ones. The small staff couldn't be more helpful & the chef provided dinners that really satisfied the hungry walker.

Only 9 rooms in a converted farmhouse away from it all. Really don't want to say much more in case too many people know about it! Management and staff amazing, feels like you've been invited to a house party. Wonderful.

We loved it all! Fabulous location with stunning views. Peacefully quiet with lots of nooks and crannies in which to relax. Friendly and relaxed service with good walking from the door. Elia felt more like a house party than a hotel and we enjoyed the company. Spotlessly clean. A car is a must, but there is good access to NW... More

Hotel Elia was exactly what we were hoping for. A very warm welcome in a lovely, small country hotel with plenty of character and with all the modern comforts. We were lucky to get an upgrade on our room so we now had a large room on two levels, with a sitting area and the bathroom downstairs and a sleeping... More
