What a fab holiday. The hotel was just what we wanted. Beautiful pool, good food and drink, lovely comfy rooms, great staff. Tempted to book again now for next year. It's walkable to the beach and a few restaurants so if your after a quieter resort it is perfect. I just loved it.

An ideal place for those who want to rest in peace and quiet in everyday life. Great view of the Mirabello bay from almost every place in the hotel - very good food that they serve tastes even better when eating out on the terrace with such a view. Lots of greenery and trees on the hotel grounds.
A nice touch is the two meals in the pool bar, during which the service serves us typical Greek dishes. There is also an outdoor cinema, in which three films are played per week. For those who do not want to go to the beach, the hotel bus runs every hour.
The biggest plus is the very nice and obliging service, everyone is smiling and friendly.
I definitely recommend this hotel!

If you go to Crete you wish to stay in truly Cretan environment. In spite of being the tourist destination, small village of Istron and surrounding area is the place for genuine travelers who wish to experience the genius loci wherever they go. The hotel itself is providing quiet and friendly atmosphere and lots of hiding places for rest and admiring the excellent nature with stunning view from the dining terrace. Food is very good, they do their best to host people from many cultures and also kids, everyone can find something to enjoy in every meal. Rooms are cleaned every single day, staff is amiable and helpful, they even join the entertainment occasions organized by residents which is great! The pool is excellent, big enough and clean, lots of sunbeds around it, either in shaded or sun-exposed areas. Olive trees give privacy and add to the quiet relaxing climate of the whole village hotel. All in all - we strongly recommend the place, were in Greece for the first time and had great time in Elpida hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool have nice view, but the others are better 'hidden' by the plants

Bathroom very small. Shower leaking. Very noisy insects. Very dark village at night. The entertainer was polish. Very boeing, he didn.t even mind speaking in english. Very boring. Nothing to do. The view is wonderful. All inclusive drinks not very good. The same breakfast. If You want to visit, You have to rent a car or go by bus. The seif is not included. The bed made crazy noise. Voulisma beach is Nice, but You have to go to Vai beach. The only palm beach in Europe. Very clean. The water, the toilets, everything. Enjoy.
