Stayed here with a group of 15 friends. The rooms are nice and clean but basic, just what we needed for a girls holiday. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming and the food from the hotel bar is lovely. Drinks from the bar are also very reasonably priced and not watered down (unlike the drinks on the strip)....

Came here first week in September for a girls holiday and couldn't recommend it enough! 24/7 bar and food says it all. What really made it was the staff! Especially Maria and both Georges, everyone so lovely and friendly. Definitely recommend.

Had a week here with my 7 other friends and we all absolutely loved this place. The receptionist and (i believe) owner of the place Kristoff (Spelling) was the kindest and most patient man in the world. The two bars there was absolutely phenomenal and we always enjoyed hanging out there if not at the strip (which was also only...

Eltina was a good hotel to stay in as all the staff were so friendly and it was one of the quieter hotels so you got to know everyone that was there the same time and made it much more friendly. The only downfall was the showers in the rooms as they ran out of hot water sometimes and also...

The hotel was perfect and had a great atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly especially George, Christof, Maria and also Christof's wife. Our rooms were cleaned everyday and the 24 hour bar was also very good and had lots of options for food and drink! A holiday I will never forget and I couldn't recommend this hotel enough to...

Really good hotel, basic but all you need on a girls holiday! Showers are a bit like a sprinkler but cant complain for flights and accommodation at £153 for the week! Its a 5 min walk from the strip which is good as you can then get away from it to sleep, rather than constantly be around the noise
