The staff at Elpida Hotel are friendly and very efficient (especially Mr Nicos at reception), and the view of the sunsets from the hotel each evening and morning are just amazing.

“Seaview rooms are better, those overlooking the pool may get noisy in the evenings if there are guests partying outside but you can get a wi fi signal on your balcony. Do not get a singel garden view as they have no balconies.”
