Fantastic Holiday

Fantastic holiday, Effie, Alex and Nick are so welcoming and accommodating and made the holiday so relaxing. We booked half board and were so glad we did so. Breakfast is basic but all fresh and was more than sufficient. The evening meals were delicious. Each night a local dish was made and served with a large bowl of fresh salad and bread. Lovely setting to sit by the pool and enjoy the meal. The rooms were comfortable and were cleaned every day. We loved our holiday so much we already planing to return next year with the children and grandchildren.

Pros: Location, pool and family atmosphere.

Cons: As in any place there are things that could be improved but these apartments are excellent value for the price you pay and have everything you need.

Location: Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos and Hersonissos. In Hersonissos is the Aquaworld Aquarium Reptile Rescue Centre and this is particularly recommended.



Everything about this hotel was awful. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

Nice hotel close to beaches and Heraklion

We were traveling on a budget and Elpida Hotel was a perfect option. Nice family-led hotel - very quiet and perfect if you are looking for a peaceful vacation. Our room wa quite big and had a small balcony and kitchenette. The pool was great but you could also walk to several beaches in Gouves or take a bus/drive somewhere else. Dinner was delicious. We had a very relaxing week.
