Lovely staff, great food, brilliant massages, views wonderful. Our room a little dark but all round we had such an amazing stay in Elia. Great for a couple with toddler. Love that you could choose whether you wanted dinner in the morning. They made it all very easy for us, flexible and nothing a hassle

Of all the places we have ever stayed in Crete, this is the best. The setting is idyllic views of the mountains and the sea, in well maintained gardens. There is a swimming pool but it doesn't take over. Our room was a good size, rather dark, but pleasantly cool. The beds are very comfortable. Both evening meal and breakfast...

I'll be brief and just say that all the glowing reviews you've read prior to this one are totally correct. Lovely place, location, staff and service. Thoroughly enjoyed a true Cretan experience with authentic food and rooms.

Elia Hotel is an excellent base to stay when exploring western Crete. Jo and her wonderful staff put you at ease as soon as you arrive. They are welcoming and you feel like a guest in their house. We stayed in a superior room with bath and I would highly recommend this as you have a little more privacy. The...

Taki, the wonderful chef prepares a different 3 course meal each night (apart from Mondays when Jo the Manager steps up!). No choice but you will be asked at breakfast if...

We loved staying at Elia. The setting is rural and relaxed. The staff is warm and very child-friendly. We enjoyed the pool facilities and the breakfast. We were accommodated in the villa which was great. There was ample space for three generations; we were able to have meals delivered from the hotel; the house was regularly serviced and the facilities...

We stayed in the Elia Hotel's Villa Elanthi, which is a private 3 bedroom house separate from the main hotel complex. We were very well looked after by the team at Elia - they are very friendly, accommodating and go out of their way to be helpful. We have a small baby and several times she was uplifted from us...

This is a fantastic place to relax and unwind. An easy drive from Chania airport to a beautiful, tranquil location in the hills. It captures the magic of Crete with views over the coastal plain, the mountains and olive groves with wonderful sunsets. Local walks, stunning Sirikari and Deliana Gorges and the beaches of north west Crete are easy to...

We spent 2 weeks touring round western Crete with 5 different places to stay and Elia was our number 1 having spent 2 nights there. Quietly hidden away in the hills with views to the coast it offers so much to savour. Just the 9 rooms so no crowds. Ours was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Breakfast in the cool...

This is the perfect place for rest, relaxation & if you want to, exploration. The hotel staff are truly lovely. Beautiful location with easy access to the coast, villages & hills of North West Crete. We particularly enjoyed eating spinach pie for breakfast!!
