    Eleonas has a dream location just outside Zaros in the Cretan hills, near the Zaros Gorge. The weather in June was perfect. Hot but with the occasional cooling breeze. The hotel is a series of detached, superbly equipped cottages. The views from the mezzazine bedroom were stunning. Great walks in every direction, plus an offshoot restaurant, owned by the hotel, on the nearby small lake. Excellent traditional Cretan cooking in the al fresco restaurant. But what really makes the place special are the lady head waitress, Mandor, who was funny, friendly and very efficient, and the manager who did everything to make our three day stay so memorable. Would go back tomorrow if we could. Randall & Christine Butt.

    We only had three days when we would have liked to stay for a week!!

    Everything was perfect - the peaceful location, the hospitality of Manolis and his staff, the private and spacious cottage, and the delicious food at the Taverna. We'd also recommend the walk up the Rouvas Gorge which starts at the lake.. Beautiful.

    This is a nice break from the tourist resorts. An authentic and relaxed atmosphere in an wonderful surrounding. The cottages are exceptional and you can see from the first moment that Manolis has put a lot of work into it and the attention to detail is outstanding. The food was great and made up of authentic local cuisine dishes. This is a family business and the staff was super. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    Although I am very picky I cannot find any fault at all!

    Great location close to start of several fantastic hikes. Man on front desk was very friendly and offered advice on the sights and activities in the area based on the type of thing we like to do. Food at taverna at hotel was excellent and everyone went out of their way to give great service. Cleaning woman even brought me a fresh pink rose from the garden to wish me a happy May Day!

    Had room with spa bath but hot water would run out well before filling it. After 10 mins or so it would be hot again, so eventually got it full enough after three heating cycles but whole bath had cooled a bit by then. Guess the hot water cylinder was too small.

    The owner, Manos and his staff were fabulous! Most gracious hosts. We had a wonderful time at Eleonas. Manos scheduled a special cooking class for us. We made cheese pies, stuffed zucchini blossoms, tomatoes, and peppers, and moussaka. What great fun and it was served at the restaurant that night. The grounds around the restaurant and pool were beautiful.

    May want to note the number of stairs and hills for people with walking disablilities.

    We were made feel very welcome. Service was very personalized and all staff very helpful, polite and friendly. Loved the location away from the hub of tourism; quiet, beautiful scenery and fantastic food - fresh, healthy and very tasty. Breakfast was a feast. We were able to relax at the beautiful pool. Very internationl guests form all parts of the world.

    The only part we didn't like were the beds - very hard mattresses and the pillows weren't great.

    Just perfect ! the beds are big and confortable. The bath is big and had small water jets. It's very quiet, the terrasse offers a beautiful view on the montagne and Mires vallee. As this seems not sufficient for Manuel, the staff and himself are really freundly, they give good advice for visiting trip. And his mother cook very good traditional meals with olives and rki from their own production.
