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.

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.
