I have just come back from the worse holiday of my life. The Elea was nothing like the reviews.
The second i pushed myself throw the lobby doors I could see the hotel was only 2 stars. this was confirmed by the rooms and the luke warm foom. I had better school meals in the 70's ! at least then we were given different food everyday. The Staff were rude and unhelpful apart from the pregnant lady on reception but even she tried to tell me, waking up and finding myself covered in ants was considered lucky !!
After a few days I discovered I had paid more for half board than the fully inc "guests" so we were upgraded. The all day snacks turned out to be peanuts and cheese toasties between 10 and 6 and that was it !!!
The entertainment was dire, a singer who could not singer , a belly dancer who was more interested in sitting on mans laps, a magician for 4 year olds and the DJ laying on a bed of nails this only took 2 hours of mind blowing boredom while every woman in the hotel had to confirm that the nail were real
I spoke to a number of other English people there who had also booked late , everyone was clearly upset.
I am not sure rights these reviews but please do not consider this hotel
