We were booked at Eleonas as part of a self-guided cycling tour (cyclegreece.com). We had no expectations going in, but were blown away by the tranquility of the place and the friendliness of the staff. We stayed two nights in a cottage with a private pool. We hiked the gorge on the advice of the staff - it was spectacular. Our breakfasts and dinner were amazing.

We went there for 3 nights with my whole French family (2 adults & 2 childen on one side, 2 adults). They booked us 2 nearby cottages. The cottages were great with fantastic views. Manolis was very welcoming and helped us with parking our big Van on the 1st night !! Breakfast and dinners were very good quality and fresh that's why we were disappointed to miss the lamb & artichokes for one night :) Wine list is very good and at very good prices ! The family pool is great too ! Don't miss it !

It is a perfect place for a quiet holiday. The cottages are very beautiful built in the mountains of Crete surrounded by olive trees and lots of green. Staff is very friendly. And the food is amazing! I can easily say that is the best I have eaten. I highly recommend

We had 4 days, 3 nights at this stunning hotel in the mountains. Highly recommended; fabulous villas, wonderful food in the taverna and incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. Although set back in the mountains, the hotel is well positioned to explore the beaches and towns along this coast. The team at Eleonas are some of the best; so accommodating, friendly and helpful. We left some swimwear on our departure but the hotel is organising for it to be posted back to us, just a small example of how the hotel will go above and beyond.

A perfect five night stay at Eleonas. We stayed in a two bed villa with pool and it was perfect for us as a family of five with two kids of 8 and 6 and a new baby. The setting is stunning. Waking up to a view of olive trees and mountains in the background was heaven. Manolis and the team could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The kids were made to feel so special and nothing was too much trouble. Despite being full, the hotel never felt busy and the pools were always quiet. We ate all meals in the taverna which served delicious Greek food and only left to walk into Zaros for ice creams and a walk to the nearby lake. We hope to return!

Eleonas is stunning! A beautiful location, very sympathetic to the environment, immaculately cared for, incredibly welcoming, excellent food, and very family friendly (but, with an adults only pool as well as a family pool, it's also respectful to adults who might be there to escape small children, theirs or others!). All in all, a perfect place to relax and also enjoy the surrounding countryside and sights.

In the words of my son Eleonas knocked our socks off. It is in a gorgeous location in the mountains, all the staff were very friendly and kind and there was a lovely atmosphere. We stayed in a villa with a pool and it was amazing. Breakfast and dinner was delicious with plenty of choice. Highly recommend this special gem that Manolis has created.
