Lovely stay. All that we needed was there. Very clean and basic. Family all were very accommodating. Happy, friendly and sometimes when we didn't want to go out, just a relaxing time around the bar/pool. Spiros, the son, such a gentleman and very good company.

I love this place, Spiros is great and cannot do enough for you. It is just typical Greece through and through. Its relaxing, friendly as the other guests are fabulous too, clean and everything you need for a typical Greek experience. The restaurants are just fabulous and I cannot wait to return again next year.

This set of apartments is quite nicely situated within a 10 minute walk to the beach. Beware all ye who enter here! The initial welcome was quite pleasant. The room was minuscule. I had to move the beds around to be able to get into the wardrobe. We pushed two beds together and shifted the central bedside cabinet to the...

We returned to The Elpida for the second year, hoping to repeat the perfect holiday we had in 2015 We were not disappointed. Spiros and his family are fantastic hosts. The place has such a relaxed atmosphere it's impossible to fault. Hope to return again soon.

Well where do I start! First night we were put in what could only be called a "holding" room for one night which was absolutely awful. We were then moved into one of the older rooms which was slightly better. The bathroom flooded daily and had a constant drain smell, balcony was dull and dismal, bar the first week was...

Just returned from Elpida another relaxing break thanks again to Spiros and his family and staff. Great English breakfast with toast and coffee sets you up for the day by the pool or on the lovely beach a 10 minute walk away. Snacks available all day and evening good choice and well priced and a mean brandy and coke our...

Have recently returned from another great stay at the Elpida. Spiros and his family never fail to make you feel welcome and this is the only place I have found where I will happily return time and time again. The rooms are basic, clean and comfy- all you need!
