I have spent a week there in mid-September. The hotel grounds are amazing - the pool is great (very deep with separate kid's pool), there is lots of sunbeds around the pool and on the grass in the garden. There are also some shaded areas for those who prefer to stay out of the sun. As the hotel is situated... More

After a nightmare transfer (nothing to do with the hotel by the way) we were met at the bottom of the hill (4.30 am!!!) and our luggage transported to reception this type of service was typical during our stay.

We stayed at the Elpida Hotel for 7 days in September. The weather was ideal, hot enough in the day to sunbathe, but not unbearable. The pool area was clean and comfortable. The nearby beach was stunning, well worth visiting. Unfortunately there were a couple of negatives during our stay; firstly the transfer. This took 2.5 hours, despite being advertised... More

We arrived in the early hours of the morning and were helped with our suitcases up the hill. There is a phone at the entrance which you can call reception to collect your luggage which was a big help.

“Seaview rooms are better, those overlooking the pool may get noisy in the evenings if there are guests partying outside but you can get a wi fi signal on your balcony. Do not get a singel garden view as they have no balconies.”
