Only 9 rooms in a converted farmhouse away from it all. Really don't want to say much more in case too many people know about it! Management and staff amazing, feels like you've been invited to a house party. Wonderful.

We loved it all! Fabulous location with stunning views. Peacefully quiet with lots of nooks and crannies in which to relax. Friendly and relaxed service with good walking from the door. Elia felt more like a house party than a hotel and we enjoyed the company. Spotlessly clean. A car is a must, but there is good access to NW...

Hotel Elia was exactly what we were hoping for. A very warm welcome in a lovely, small country hotel with plenty of character and with all the modern comforts. We were lucky to get an upgrade on our room so we now had a large room on two levels, with a sitting area and the bathroom downstairs and a sleeping...

We stayed for two weeks in October and from the outset were delighted with our experience. The hotel, which was once a farmhouse, is intimate and boutique in style. The rooms are comfortable, simply but tastefully furnished, and retain their authenticity and an original look. A major plus is the provision of facilities to make hot drinks! The choice of...

Disappointingly, we would agree with some of the more negative reviews to-date. While Elia enjoys a beautiful position in a secluded, olive-grove setting with fabulous views, simple but good food, and a great pool, we just didn't feel that guests were treated in a way befitting these kind of rates. The room was quite dark, cheaply furnished, with temporary fixes...

I make it a point never to respond to personal opinions as everyone is entitled to their own and are hotel does not suit everyone so I will only respond to half of this review. However I do find it necessary however to respond to negative comments concerning inaccurate facts and referring to the prices we have charged other guests...

We stayed for 3 days in September this year, and wished we had booked for a longer stay, so we have booked for 5 days next year! I don't really need to say any more do I? The atmosphere is more like a country house than an hotel, service is friendly and efficient. Food is excellent, accommodation is fine, not...

Far from crowded places, hidden in the mountains in a fantastic surrounding, but only 10 minutes away from Kolymbari you will find quietness, rest and a very friendly service. They do everything they can to offer you a pleasant stay. Rooms are clean and good furnished. Evening dinner has to be ordered at breakfast and everyone has the same food,...

Having booked on the basis of previous reviews I was extremely excited to be staying at Elia Hotel & Spa - it looked like a real haven. The location itself and accompanying views were absolutely beautiful - a real asset for the hotel. However, I found the grounds and facilities themselves to be a little run down and rather substandard....

We spent two weeks here from the 2nd to the 16th September. This is one of the nicest places we have stayed and we had a relaxing time in peaceful surroundings in luxurious accommodation. Our host Jo was knowledgeable about local walks, and the chef was good and nice to talk to. The size of the place meant that you...

Had a truly wonderful week in this gem of a Hotel Elia.. Charming, tranquil and full of character, set within secluded lush gardens with stunning views across the island.
