An extraordinary place in every sense, clean, beautiful, tidy, very well set and organised, yet maintaining the kind of tranditional simplicity which is needed to fit in a unique natural landscape. And for a really good price! Everything you may need is included and taken care of in the rooms, a great restaurant will fulfil your tastes to the full,... More

I'm almost reluctant to write a review of Eleonas Cottages because I'd like to keep it as my secret. We spent the most delightful mid September week being looked after by Manolis and his team. Eleonas Cottages is NOT a normal hotel. The resort is 21 beautiful little cottages on a mountainside in central Crete, with a restaurant, pool, children's... More

Have stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world and Eleonas is in my top ten. PROS - Communication prior to the trip was good - Excellent price - Area does not feel touristy (I liked Hania, but it feels touristy) - Very hospital owner - Cottage with a deck - Views - Flora all over the place - Complimentary...

My daughter and I have just returned from a fabulous stay at Eleonas. From the beginning our stay was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Manolis was fabulous at answering my many emails very swiftly which was much appreciated! We arrived late to be welcomed with smiles from the staff and sustenance after our journey. Our room ( Daphne... More

We stayed at Eleonas three nights with two teenage daughters. It was perfect for us. The cottages are close enough to allow easy walking to the main building or the pool, but the network of walls and terraces makes them peaceful and secluded. Our balcony had a fantastic view, and all the other cottages seemed to enjoy similarly fantastic views... More

It was our 5th time in Eleonas, this year. We had been here as a young couple but this year already as a family with our little child. We loved Eleonas before so we decided to spend our 18-day-holiday with our son here. The cottages are just perfect as they have always been. You can see that Manolis, the proprietary,... More

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
