    We very much enjoyed our time at Eleonas. It is in a peaceful idyllic location. The cottages are well designed and very clean. The breakfast's are great and there is the possibility to have half board meals which are also very good. The staff and service is very friendly. It is a great location for walking in the mountain area and for visiting the Minoen sites such as Phaistos and Gortyes. The owner has a walking map of the area which is very helpful. The location is about 45 minutes drive from Iraklio where one can visit other sites and museums of interest. Eleonas also has a small pool and table tennis. The dining and restaurant patio areas are lovely to spend time in. It is a bit like spending time in Eden.

    I stayed for four nights in early September with my wife and three small children. It really is a beautiful place; the cottages are well-equipped and comfortable, the taverna is great, the pool is nice and the setting in the mountains is perfect. We made excursions to several nice beaches and other places from the hotel, and while you have to drive a bit there are a lot of options within a hour's drive or so. More than anything we appreciated the warm welcome of Manos and the other staff who looked after us in a way we have rarely experienced in a hotel, and were always generous with their time in giving us advice on where to go or just chatting to us and the children. Their pride in the place is very clear and I can strongly recommend it!

    A beautiful quiet location in an area of spectacular natural scenery. The owner was helpful and very informative about the area. A free, well prepared map of the area helped to enhance our enjoyment of our stay. The on-site taverna offered home cooking at a reasonable price.

    It was a long steep climb from the main building up the hillside to our cottage. Ok if you are young and fit but for us, after a large dinner and lots of free raki, it sometimes seemed a bit daunting.

    Verry nice location, in the mountains of Crete. Situated in the center of the island, it is a perfect location to explore all the areas of the island. You can do in the same time mountain exploration and to go to the beach (half an hour driving from the hotel). The owner was a perfect host and the food was excelent. Highly recomended!!!

    The facilities are spotless. The hotel is very thought through and well looked after. Our room was very beautiful, clean and had all amenities. We received excellent hiking advice from the owner. The restaurant food was amazing.

    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.
