I had a lovely stay here in September. Very quiet and peaceful apartments, very clean, great value for money, small but adequate swimming pool, amazing views and in a great position between Old Hersonnissos and Koutouloufari. Out of the 3 villages Piskopiano is definitely the place to be, and I would thoroughly recommend the Elgoni!

We stayed a week at this hotel in August. The hotel is on the a hill, which we had to walk up to because our transfer coach didn't go there. The hotel is marketed as a 3 star but it a 2 star. The rooms are very basic, with limited cooking utensils, tired looking discoloured towels and very hard uncomfortable...

I booked this as a last minute trip so didn't do my usual research. The Hotel is listed as 3 star but in reality it's a 2 star at best and I've stayed in many 2 star places that exceed this. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was basic but desperately needed updating. Furniture, fixtures and fittings were...

Nickos,Helene, with mum & dad, did their best to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible. Our Thomas Cook flight in was 3 hours late, so we arrived after midnight, but Nickos and Helene were waiting up - along with the last customer in the bar. The rooms are of a good size, but the soft furnishings, bed...

We read a lot of reviews before we went on our trip to Crete/Elgoni Apartments and were unsure what to expect. Nikos and Helene and the team were very friendly and helpful.

Just back from Crete, where we stayed in the little village of Piskopiano on the hills above Hersonissos. We stayed at the Elgoni Apartments, as small but wonderful family run hotel. Travellers, please note: if you want luxury, go to a 4 or 5 star hotel. If you are looking for a good value, comfortable, budget accomodation, you can't go...

Great value hotel. Nikos and Helene are wonderful hosts, the kids really loved them. Rooms are basic but spacious and keep nice and cool during the day if you use the shutters. Pool is just right - never too busy, we got a lounger any time of day. Some great beaches within walking distance around Hersonisos. Also, there's Star Beach...

We stayed in a studio apartment at Elgoni for two weeks. The apartment was traditional and basic, but perfectly acceptable for the price. It offers great value, given its location in Piskopiano between Koutoulafari and Old Hersonnisos. Yes, the fridge could have been cleaner, the towels could have been changed more often, and the shower pressure could have been better,...
