We stayed at Eleonas last year and enjoyed it so much we returned again this year, which we rarely do as we like to try different places.However, Eleonas is such a special place to stay we didn't even consider other options for the last part of our travels around Crete. The great reviews are exactly as they describe but I... More

What a wonderful special place Eleonas is. We went with our family of 5 (15yr,13yr,11yr)and had 2 cottages. As all previous reviews- we cannot fault this place. We had 2 weeks of true relaxation. Usually we go self-catering, this time we went half-board and so glad we did. Amazing Cretan food-despite being there for 2 weeks we never got bored... More

Just returned from a lovely two weeks. Overall a really good experience but a couple of things stopped me from awarding five stars. Positives: The location is fabulous with lovely views across a valley to mountains in the distance and with a dramatic mountain pass the other way with a picturesque monastery in view. Very peaceful too, apart from the... More

My wife and I spent five days at Eleonas, and just found it to be perfect (literally, I just cannot name any disappointment or disadvantage). Manolis (who originated this family labor of love after working on the North coast) told us his mission is to make the lives of his guests as easy as possible and he has an exceptional... More

Literally could not rate the place highly enough. Food was 10/10, staff was 10/10, place was 10/10 and my holiday was 10/10. Will go back anytime I am visiting crete 100%. Went on a few of the hikes which were great and HOT! If your looking for a peaceful getaway this is the place to go.

We recently returned from Eleonas - three years after our first visit, which, quite frankly wasn't long enough! This time we made our trip a week and a half, and with our 10-month old as well as our 4-year old. We relaxed and we were well looked after by Manolis and his team, who are always so thoughtful with an... More

As you are trying to find Eleonas for the first time you will wonder what you've got yourself into, driving through the narrow village and country roads, occasionally duking it out with a oversized Zaros water truck. But you will be glad you did! The location is a beautiful hillside retreat with views of the countryside. The accommodations are modern... More

We found Eleonas on TA and thank you everyone who recommended it because it was just wonderful. Truly international clientele (which made it fun as we were there during the World Cup/Wimbledon - not that football was on in the TV all the time).

Just back from a great week with Manolis and his team at Eleonas. In short, we loved our mezzanine cottage, the food in the taverna, the olive grove setting, and the pool. But the best thing about the whole place is the people. Manolis, Mando, Efrem and everyone behind the scenes really work hard to make you feel welcome and... More
