“Great Location, Clean, and what a GREAT family!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2011

Ok - where to start. We loved this place - clean, simple rooms (only 5 so book early!) fantastic location, only 50 metres from the beach, and 50 metres from the main square.

First things first - if you want a 5 star all inclusive expensive hotel this is NOT for you. If you want to go somewhere and experince Greece as it should be with great hospitality, food and somewhere just to lay your hat this could be for you.

The rooms are simple, 2 beds (some rooms can sleep 3) kitchenette, bathroom and balcony, and are cleaned every day except Sunday. Downstairs is the Eleana Deli Bar - where Antreas and this brother (Costas) and Sister (Eleni) make the most wonderful Crepes and Waffles, (try the bananna and Nutella topped with nuts!) as well as breakfasts and snacks if you want them. Free Raki is compulsory every time you see the parents!!

Other than the location - you are on the beach in 2 minutes, and the Edem swimming pool (open to anyone is 1 minute away) the thing that sets these rooms apart from some of the others we have stayed at is the Family. Antreas and his parents, together with his brother and sister are so friendly, and make you feel so welcome, it's like going to Greece 20 odd years ago.

Although his parents speak very little English, we seemed to get on very well - hand signals and smiles go a long way, and they will do everything they can to make your stay a memorable one.

We needed a couple of things for our room (more hangers, hairdryer etc) and everything we asked for was arranged - and quickly too.

A couple of times we wanted specific things to eat in the evening (fresh fish at a good price) and asked the family which would be the best restaurants to go to. Yanni (the father) quickly got on the phone to find out which of the restaurants had caught Tuna that day! Another time, they recomended a restaurant up at Lake Kournas which was fabulous, and they even gave us a lift up there (and the restaurant gave us a lift back!) Like I say, a really hospitable family.

As far as the resort is concerned, it;s all here - great beach, great restaurants and bars. A wonderful place for a family holiday.

We'll be back!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2010

We spent 3 nights at Eleana Studios (my boyfriend and me) ; we chose it since the reviews were great and we were not disappointed. The first thing we noticed was the cleanness of the room -it was impeccable! The design and furniture are basic but very practical and completely suited our needs. The prices are also good. In addition the hospitality was great- Antreas and his family are among the nicest people we met in Greece. They also opened a nice little snack bar with delicious crepes.
