We booked the Elpida at very short notice so knew we were taking pot luck, especially with it being only 2*. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised though - aside from an initial mix-up with our room (we had booked a two bedroom and were given a one bedroom... very swiftly resolved by the owner). The apartment was simple/basic but perfectly comfortable with a terrace and an amazing view. We went half board and have to say the food was great and offered a good variety. We used the pool a couple of times and the children's pool was perfect for our 5 and 7 year olds. Most days we headed to the beach which is probably half a mile away - a good 20 minute walk with young children and quite hard work in the August heat, but absolutely worth it for the peaceful, gorgeous beach it led to. There are a couple of bakeries, a supermarket and taverna en route so plenty of opportunities for cold refreshment! The staff we encountered at the Elpida were friendly and helpful and in all I would not only recommend it but would be very happy to return.
