I stayed here 2 years in a row. If you can, get one of the apartments next to the pool, a long walk and a lot of stairs, however the views are spectacular. Helen and Nicos the owners are lovely, they took us to the beach one day. The accommodation is basic but has everything you need to prepare food...

We are just back from a fantastic week in early May at this gem of a taverna and apartments. This family run business is managed by Nickos and his lovely wife Hellen with Nickos's parents helping out. Nothing is too much trouble and Nickos has an excellent knowledge of Crete. Service is attentive but not intrusive and needs are anticipated....

Perfect hotel and great value for money. Very nice and helpful family. Good loction a bit above Piskopiano. Good to come back to the quiet hotel after busy days with long walks. Excellent view over Piskopiano. Stairs up to the hotel is in fact good daily training. The pool is small but well kept, not too busy, not too crowded....

I had a lovely stay here in September. Very quiet and peaceful apartments, very clean, great value for money, small but adequate swimming pool, amazing views and in a great position between Old Hersonnissos and Koutouloufari. Out of the 3 villages Piskopiano is definitely the place to be, and I would thoroughly recommend the Elgoni!

We stayed a week at this hotel in August. The hotel is on the a hill, which we had to walk up to because our transfer coach didn't go there. The hotel is marketed as a 3 star but it a 2 star. The rooms are very basic, with limited cooking utensils, tired looking discoloured towels and very hard uncomfortable...

I booked this as a last minute trip so didn't do my usual research. The Hotel is listed as 3 star but in reality it's a 2 star at best and I've stayed in many 2 star places that exceed this. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was basic but desperately needed updating. Furniture, fixtures and fittings were...

Nickos,Helene, with mum & dad, did their best to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible. Our Thomas Cook flight in was 3 hours late, so we arrived after midnight, but Nickos and Helene were waiting up - along with the last customer in the bar. The rooms are of a good size, but the soft furnishings, bed...
