After booking last minute I then checked the hotel on trip advisor and read all the reviews of which were across the board opinions, but with that we'd thought we would give it the benefit of the doubt which we did.
On our arrival greeting was fine and straight into our room, which was as expected small and basic. I did find a cockroach on the floor so I had to evict him but that didn't really bother me.
Everything was fine with location and there are some really good tavernas and restaurants on offer I.e the rainbow (very good value and big portions), Sydneys bar. There are some good bars to go to as well I.e Sebastian 2, flamingo, players And the Sydney bar.
The beaches are good especially paradise beach. Hiring of scooters/quads/buggies is a must they are soo cheap. We went to kos town twice on our holiday.
Our opinion of the eleni changed when on our second day we removed the sheets on one of our beds as I had a nose bleed which I sometimes suffer from. The problem came when we came back the wife of the owner came up to us and impolitely said we weren't allowed to change the sheets as they get changed every two days and gestured towards my girlfriend that the blood was from her period by pointing towards her groin area, with the lady not speaking much English and with her tone of voice it seemed impossible to explain the situation which made my girlfriend very upset to say the least.
The reviews about the owner being sleazy I would say are on the right path, the way he looks at and speaks to the girls is a little creepy.
All I can say is that I don't think they really care about the guests which is a little harsh but if your standing at the bar waiting to get served and he is sat on the table playing with his friends on a board game he will not get up and serve you, which happened to me which resulted in me having to go to the local store for a drink. And there is a notice by the pool saying you are only permitted to drink drinks from the pool bar which is impossible if he is otherwise engaged (with his friends)
I will not be coming here again and wouldn't recommend it as their attitude and lack of people skills are apaulling
