Reviewed 28 April 2014

Excellent location, the hotel absolutely coincides with the environment, the staff and the owners are very kind, polite and helpful! It has an amazing view, all the rooms are big, warm and extremely clean having all the comforts we needed and the breakfast was lavish! My husband and I, with our 9months baby went there during Easter and the owners had everything ready for our baby's comfort and safety as well. However, the restaurant of the hotel could be better as far as its flavors is concerned since the area has much more and delicious food to offer.

Room Tip: all of them are great but don't forget to ask if your room has a double bed!!

We spent a lovely weekend in this agreeable resort. Before reaching the place, the hosts were more than happy to take good care of us by providing all useful info. When there, we were warmly welcomed and taken good care of. The hotel is well decorated and maintained. The rooms are very nice and warm. The food at the hotel's restaurant and cafe is super. I highly recommend this resort for a nice break. A perfect place to stay if you are visiting mystras.

We stayed 7 nights in Ilaeira in July 2013. We had already experienced Peloponnesos by the sea, and now it was the time to experience something different. Our stay exceeded all expectations! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and read books, to enjoy the nature, to do some sports, to enjoy good food and excellent accommodation, this is the place for you. And not to forget all the interesting historical sights, to which you can do day-trips. The most interesting for us were Mystra, Areopolis and Monemvasia. In Monemvasia we even managed to see huge, wild sea-turtles while having lunch in a seaside restaurant! If you want to swim in the sea, Gythio is 45 minutes drive from Ilaiera. We valued the silence, gorgeous mountain views, the mild weather, excellent beds and elegantly designed interiors. Having travelled a lot especially in the Balkans (Croatia etc.), prices are more than reasonable both in accommodation and dining. We had unforgettable days in Ilaeira. Thank you so much Peggy, "Phoebe" serving breakfast, Mike, George and the rest of the staff. It felt like staying in a friends home. Marita & Samu, Helsinki, Finland

Room Tip: All the 50 m2 rooms are good. They are in single houses facing the forest.

This is a destination of its own! Well built and set-up, beautiful picturesque location on the mountain, gives you a sense of relaxation the moment you step in the complex.
The houses are conveniently decorated, windows with mountain view all around, comfy beds, cosy fireplace corner.
Staff is welcoming and caring of its guests!
A note to improve, could be the breakfast, which although is rich in variety, could have a more traditional note, and lower prices for coffee (if not included like espresso... -cause american filter coffee is included-).
The restaurant is also worth visiting, tasteful and good price quality!

Room Tip: Definately pick one of the houses (preferred to main building), where you get a feeling of staying a...

We would like to thank you for your review, for taking the time to write us your comments and thoughts.We are always happy to hear suggestions especially concerning our breakfast buffet since we almost run out of ideas, loukoumades, orange flavour cakes, cheese pie, mpougatsa, homemade marmelades, ruzogalo, are only a few of the traditional things that we serve. We are open to new suggestions.
We will be happy to see you again at our hotel.

We stayed for three nights and, by chance, coincided with the end of the amazing annual Spartathon from Athens.
The resort is wonderful. We were amazed by how beautiful it all was...views, landscaping, picturesque houses....the resort reminded me in some ways of Portmeirion. The service was brilliant and the price was excellent for the overall quality of our stay.
The restaurant was very reasonably priced, considering that the distance to Sparta means that they have an almost captive clientele. Breakfast was a typical Greek buffet....until Sunday when some of the athletes were staying....Bacon, eggs and sausages were provided as well as all the other stuff!
I loved it.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was everything we wanted and needed at that time. The room was great and clean, breakfast was tastefull and the restaurant was great and the prices were also normal. The pool was all we needed and we liked that the poolbar was open till late. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. We had a great time and the next time we will want to relax and leave the city it will be our destination.
