Stayed here for the first leg of my visit to Crete, with my young Daughter. First off, real surprise to pay €120 on arrival for the safety deposit box and air conditioning for 2 weeks. Bit of a unexpected chunk out of my spends!! :-( Having got over that there was the room. Lovely view, right by the pool which... More

Clean basic apartments - helpful owners & staff with rooms cleaned daily & towels etc changed regularly - lovely underused pool & barman is a great character with good range of drinks & snacks. Very handily placed between 1st beach & Bali port.

The rooms are very basic. The beds are so hard that we felt like they were punching us. The internet did not work well in the room (although did in the pool area). The shower curtain was dirty and the shower was barely large enough for a person (and I am a small woman). The second night our room began... More

Really lovely location very private and quiet but still close to all the amenities. The apartments are spotlessly clean, Poppy prides herself on the cleanliness of her complex and it shows. We only spent 3 days here, but it would have been great to stay longer.

We stayed at Elpis for 10 nights in October 2014. We had a one bedroom apartment with a lovely big balcony with a glimpse of the sea as you looked to your left. Was perfect for us...simple, very clean (towels/bedding changed/bins emptied everyday except Sundays) but we're the kind of people who don't spend much time in the apartment, we... More

The thing to stress with this accomodation is that it is cheap! You get what you pay for, and for less than £20 a day you can't really complain. We had a two room apartment which could sleep four though we were just the two of us, so plenty of room. It was cleaned everyday and sheets and towels, though... More

We stayed at the Elpis Studios (group of 6) but were split into 2 apartments which may not have been the fault of Elpis but the company we booked it through. I noticed when there that there were some adjoining rooms so that the whole party could be together so if you need this it is probably best to stipulate.... More

Unfortunately I booked a room at Elpis Apartments in Bali, it was a huge mistake. Honestly, I don't even know where to start. The reception has opening hours, should you arrive when its closed (like we did) you will find a taped information at the door that your key is already in the lock of the room.... There was no...
