ΑΘΗΝΑ 2 Σεπτεμβρίου 2010
Περάσαμε τέσσερις αξέχαστες μέρες στον ξενώνα σας εγώ και η οικογένειά μου τον Αύγουστο.Τελικά πιστεύω ότι στο συγκεκριμένο κατάλυμα η επιτυχία οφείλεται στο ότι ο ιδιοκτήτης του Μάνος και το ευγενικό προσωπικό διαφημίζουν με τον καλλίτερο τρόπο την Κρητική φιλοξενία και ζεστασιά .Αξίζει να το επισκεφθείτε εάν θέλετε χαλάρωση ,να θαυμάσετε φύση και να έχετε υψηλού επιπέδου υπηρεσίες που σπάνια σήμερα συναντάμε.
Πέραν του ότι θα σας επισκεφθούμε και πάλι σας ζητάμε να συνεχίσετε τις προσπάθειες και να είσθε σίγουροι ότι η καλλίτερη διαφήμιση είμαστε εμεις οι πελάτες.
ΥΓ Μάνο . πρέπει να σε συγχάρω για το υψηλού επιπέδου πρωϊνό αφού εκτός των άλλων παραδοσιακών λιχουδιών , όσο και αν φαίνεται αστείο, προσφέρετε πραγματικό καφέ φίλτρου και όχι υποκατάστατα όπως σε πολλά άλλα ξενοδοχεία που έχουμε πάει .
Quite an adventure!
This summer we arrived at Heraklion airport at 09:15pm. It was dark but still warm. We picked up our little rental car and went for a ride to Eleonas. It was already dark and we were prepared for an one hour drive. We took the mainroad to Zaros village in the southern part of Crete. After around half an hour, the TomTom lady voice instructed us to take the first road on our right hand, so we did. It took just a little while when the asphalt turned into an unpaved tracking path. What to do? We continued : “It could not be very far from now”. The narrow way went up in the mountains, at our left hand we assumed to see (it was very dark) canyons, at our right hand we saw rocky mountains. To shorten a long story: after an off road trip of three quarters of an hour the path became that narrow that we couldn’t pass anymore. Turning the car was hardly possible, but we did, and then we were trapped! The way back was too hard for our 1000cc Fiat Panda . What to do in (already) the middle of the night. We called our travel agent. She contacted Manos, the owner of the Eleonas resort, who immediately started a rescue operation. We appreciated his tranquilizing telephone call in which he told us it was a miracle! He had seen the headlights of our car in the mountains. But it still took almost an hour before he had found us with his 4x4 Jeep Wrangler. Luckily he succeeded. With a lot of effort because it wasn’t easy, our car needed some extra help with the steep road backwards. He guided us through the mountains to his resort where we arrived at around 02:00am. A better host then Manos isn’t possible. Manos is our hero, thank you!! Henk & Jacqueline.
heaven on earth what more can we say
Sin duda este hotel ofrece todo lo necesario para una estancia inolvidable: un lugar mágico, unas instalaciones impecables y un personal encantador que te hace sentir en familia. Muchas gracias por todo. Volveremos.
Eleonas Cottages - simply beautiful! We had a wunderful stay with a fabulous service in a magnificent location! Manolis ,thnx alot for everything, especially for the "rakomelo" ;-)
Till next time (definetely asap)!
Eleonas is built in a wonderful area for your holidays which combines the best hospitality, the unspoilt nature, the magnificent landscape, the unique ecosystem, best climate, and some of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean sea.
As always well done! Good luck in your future work!
Nothing was to much trouble when it comes to the service and we were treated like family. The setting is idyllic, and the delicious food was reasonibly priced. We had a perfect balance of trips to the beaches, exploring the island and spending relaxing hours around the swimming pool of Eleonas. We experienced privacy in our cottage and enjoyed the evening meals with the other guests in the taverna. The marvelous view from the terrace of the taverna over mountains completed our meals. If you are looking for a paradise of tranquility, a great staff,delicious food, wild nature and a luxurious cottage, this is the place where you must go. Manos, Mando, Maria, we will see you next year again. Thank you for all you warm care , energy and great service.
We enjoyed so much the atmosphere, the surrounding nature, hiking, bike trips, the nearby beaches, the excellent authentic food ,it is a great place!!
Eleonas - für 14 Tage der Ort für uns, wo Milch und Honig fließen: ein toller Standort für große Natur- und Kulturerlebnisse. Excellente grieschische Küche, großzügige gepflegte Räume. Dank an Manos und sein Team - qualifiziert, alert, freundlich. Wir sehen uns wieder für die nächsten 2 Wochen (schon der dritte urlaub bei Euch!). Frank.
We stayed at Eleonas for 9 nights at the end of May. It was just wonderful. Manolis and the staff were delightful, nothing was too much trouble. Great food,served on a lovely terrace. The gardens and pool area were superb, very relaxing. Lovely views from the balcony of our lodge which was delightfully furnished had everything we needed - the fruit and raki were a nice touch. We hope to return.
Visit eleonas realy is a great place and entire island also.
We stayed twice: on spring 2008 and summer 2009. In both times we enjoyed so much the atmosphere, the surrounding nature, hiking, bike trips, the nearby beaches, the excellent authentic food and most of all the caring personal headed by Manos. It a great place!! Certainly we shall return!
