My partner and I had a lovely one night stay at Glykeria. As we are both Cretan living abroad we enjoyed a mini homeland escape at Elafonisi and Kedrodasos which are a breath away from Glykeria. Our room was spacious and clean with a jaw-dropping view of the sunset over the cliffs. The owners are truly wonderful hosts and the...

We were looking forward to staying at Glykeria B&B and we were warmly welcomed. The room was spotlessly clean with an amazing view. The bathroom was basic, but functional. The pool area is nice. There was no bar service, we had to walk across the busy road to the taverna to pick up drinks. Dinner was a disappointment and expensive....

Staying on this part of the island is in itself something of an adventure; whilst the rooms do not offer the highest standards of accommodation, a shower in the morning can be a bracing event, the personality of the family team that run the hotel added to the excellence of the home spun cuisine combine to make a stay here...

Stayed for 2 nights. Clean, no frills B&B with 9 (?) sea view rooms (we were on the bottom floor and still had a very nice view).

We did enjoy our stay here. Simple but super-spacious rooms, lovely see view, relaxing sofa close to the pool (i read there whole mornings). It is difficult to enjoy anything better than this if you want to stay away from everything and everybody. The restaurant is one of the best in the area, so no need to search. Very friendly...

As a family of four we stayed for four nights at the hotel, 6 km away from the actual beach. Overall, very happy with service and friendliness of Glykeria and her brother Nikos. Used the swimming pool a couple of times as well and discovered hidden bays nearby. Room had air-con with no extra cost and a small fridge but...
