“Warmest welcome in Crete!”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the minute we arrived at Elia Meronas, we were made to feel most welcome; this continued throughout our 10 night stay; Maria & Nekatrious, and all the team, treated us like old friends who were guests in their home.

This location would be perfect for anyone looking to have a thoroughly relaxing and peaceful break, and the stunning views are breathtaking. There are numerous walking routes nearby, with routes to suit everyone from a leisurely stroll to serious mountain climbing.

I would recommend a car, if looking to explore more of Crete; the location is very well placed inland for trips to the South and North Coast; Maria and Nektarious are experts at recommending suitable days out for your parties needs; this not only saved us time, searching around for ideas, but afforded us invaluable local knowledge. Equally, this could be ideal for those seeking total tranquility, who could choose to do nothing but rest and relax.

The kitchen at Elia Meronas produced gorgeous meals for us, at very reasonable prices, with no request being too much trouble. None of our family eat meat, plus our teenage kids have fussier tastes, but they rose to the challenge! We loved the fresh local produce, and the use of the homegrown herbs. We also really enjoyed the food in one of the (three) tavernas in the village nearby, which Maria kindly recommended to us.

The tasteful accomodation was spacious and adequately equpped. It was a delight to sit on either of 2 balconies, to either read or enjoy the beautiful scenery surrounding us. The pool area was quiet, comfortable and never over-crowded, as is often the case in larger resorts,

I would also highly recommend Elia Meronas to Yoga teachers/groups looking for suitable retreat venues; as a student of Yoga myself, I can see the potential for this being an ideal location for group retreats, especially in the Spring or Autumn.

Overall, we were all delighted with our stay at Elia Meronas, and would most certainly look to visit here again. We can't thank Maria and Nektarious enough for making our stay so wonderful, for which we are most grateful.
