As described by several other fellow travelers this is a excellent place - and great value for money too. It has a unique feel of Greece that is currently rare. All big resorts tend to look the same nowadays. Had a great time, even though August is obviously the busiest month. So if you want to enjoy the great nearby...

The Elpida was pretty much the perfect place for our family holiday. The rooms are basic but clean and air conditioned. The pools are great, as are the entertainment team, who encourage the kids and adults alike to get involved, without being pushy if you'd rather just bake yourself in the sun and not move for about 8 hours. Nickos...

I came here with my two kids a couple of weeks ago. Don't believe all the negative reviews. Having managed to book myself into this hotel I then read the reviews properly and panicked rather! No need too. People complain about nothing. This is a lovely friendly hotel and very clean. Our apartment was cleaned every day, change of towel...

The hotel is in a beautiful location with excellent views of the bay from most rooms. We traveled as a couple and we were after a nice, quiet and relaxing holiday and that's exactly what we got. The pool was a good size and the area around the pool had plenty of beds, sun shades and other shaded areas (I...

We stayed here for a week at the end of July for a family holiday, there were two families & we had two of the two bed family apartments & chose the all inclusive package. The hotel itself is beautiful, with a real rustic, traditional Greek feel. It is laid out like a village with everything built around a central...

Thank you very much for your kind words, we always try to improve the hotel and services for our guests. However I would like to clarify that we actually accept all major credit/debt cards at the hotel. Kind regards.

This hotel is situated above a lovely bay in the undeveloped eastern part of the island. The small town it looks over is not a hive of activity, there are very few tourists in this area and so it is not an area for people looking for action and nightlife. The hotel is made up of a series of buildings...

Elpida village hotel is the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in. Upon arrival at 10:30 pm we were shown to our rooms by Nickos, who informed us there were rolls and drinks waiting for us at the bar when we were ready. Thought this was a lovely touch. The animators were fab. I joined in with Yoga/stretch and Aqua...

A quirky Greek hotel on the side of a mountain with stunning views of the Bay. (Not for those with walking disabilities). The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. Wonderful greeting in Reception from Maria, through to friendly bar staff especially Aphrodite, Alana and Manhole. Food is good but hot food is barely warm. Again though, the restaurant has...
