“Just gets better!”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

Returned again to Eleana Studios as always a fantastic stay here. The rooms have all been totally refurbished to an exceptional standard with new bathrooms and also the beds have been replaced and have really comfortable mattresses. Having the two cooking rings are more than adequate if you feel like rustling up something quick and relaxing on the balcony but with the excellent Delibar downstairs ideal for drinks, snacks and really good crepes you might not bother.
With so many choices of restaurants nearby you should have no problem finding a good place to have your evening meal. Antreas,Kostas,Eleni and their parents Yiannis and Anna really go out of their way to make your stay here really enjoyable,nothing is too much trouble and always find the time to talk with you. During our stay Yiannis and Kostas each caught a Tuna and Anna cooked them and we shared the meal.Really a fantastic taste of home cooked Cretan food.

This is a great place - we've stayed here before - so knew what to expect. Clean, comfortable rooms, a great location (2 minutes to the square, beach and swimming pool) with a warm welcome and they are fun by a fantastic and hard working (no lazy Greeks here!) family.

Since last year, all of the bathrooms in the Studios have been completley upgraded, and are superb (they were so good we took some photos which I'll upload soon.)

As well as new bathrooms, all the studios have had new beds, with excellent mattresses. Often in Greece we've found the only downside to some places is the Beds and the Bathrooms - no such worries here.

As well as the rooms, the family operate a deli bar downstairs, great Crepes, Waffles, Juices etc...

Antreas, Kostas, Eleni together with their parents Yannis and Anna make this the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

I´m sitting at Eleanas, writing this right now. It´s our third time here, and we will certainly come back... The studios are runned by a beautiful family, Yannis, Ana and their sons; Antreas and Kostas, in addition they have a daughter Elena... not to difficult to figure out where the name comes from....
They are all wery service minded, helpful and polight. The rooms are newly renovated this year, and they are kept clean and nice..
I would reccomend this place to any of my friends, without doubt..
Now I have no more time to writing, because I´m going on a boat trip fishing Tunas with Kostas and his father...

Thank God there are too many flights from UK beacuse definately I'm going to visit Georgioupoli again and stay at Eleana Studios. It's very close from the airport (aprox.15 min), 10 min from Rethimno city, 20-25 min from Chania city and generally the place is in great location for travelling around half the island of Crete. The owners are the cutest family there! Very hospitable and friendly,they make you feel part of their family from the beginning! I loved Mama Anna with the fresh juices from the snack bar right next to the studios (really convenient because that snack bar had everything we needed for the day and it was closing around our bed time,so we had very quiet sleep). The room was new and very clean (as well as the bathroom-quite important for me). The beach is great....long and sandy....really close to the Studios. In conclusion I had great holidays there and I miss it already!!!!

For although we were not guests at Eleana Studios, we still visited the Eleana deli bar everyday, for lunch, crepe's, waffles or even in passing just for an ice cream. The food was beautiful, Andreas and Kostas took time to put effort in to what they were serving to every customer!

We made brilliant friends with the lads, we wish we hadn't left Georgioupolis so soon but are highly tempted to come back in the near future and to make our reservation within the studios.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by both Eleni and Antreas. The rooms have recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The bathroom is in a modern style with glass surrounding the shower! There are 5 spacious rooms, 2 at the rear of the property and 3 at the front, all with balconies.

The Deli-bar below is excellent value serving everything you can imagine. All different food options are available at any time of the day and wonderful crepes and ice-creams too! Beers, wine and cocktails are also on offer so if you stay here it's difficult to leave!

Antreas and Eleni are good company and will help with local information on the best beaches and places to visit. Nothing is too much trouble for them as they make sure your stay is comfortable. They spend time with you but not too much as to be intrusive, they are interested in your day and what they can do to make it even better. This usually involves raki!

We enjoyed our stay here so much and loved Georgioupoli, that we are going again in September. Thank you to Antreas and Eleni for making our stay memorable.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have bigger balconies than those at the back!

I made my first visit to Eleana Studios at the end of May. I just wanted to get out of London for a week and have a beach holiday without the stresses of life in London . I still cannot believe how lucky I was in choosing Eleana Studios for my stay. I got more than I expected! The rooms are spacious, spotless and are finished to a high quality standard. They have the extra facility of a small cooking range and free WiFi. I was very impressed. They are just a minute from the beach, the Edem swimming pool and the square and are ideally located for visits to Chania or Rethymnon. The Delibar downstairs is a great place to 'hang out' after a day on the beach. They have a full range of cocktails, beers, wines and snacks. Eleni makes a great Cafe Americano and the yoghurt with oranges were delicious, Antreas too made some "mean" cocktails in my favourite colour - green! Their mother was so generous - she picked for me some mountain tea and bay leaves. Wow! Not many people would make that effort! I was so impressed by the whole experience and the hospitality of the Papadakis family.

Room Tip: Prices are very reasonable especially for the British and Americans with the Euro at a very good rat...
