“Pleasant stay with great owners”

We had a very pleasant stay at Elpida apartments. The location is great; just outside the city center, but within 5 minutes you reach the main street and the beach is only a 10 minutes walk. We were staying in the studio, which was very spacious (even for a studio) and clean. The family who runs the hotel is absolutely amazing; they immediately welcome you into their family (no matter what time you arrive) and they keep being friendly, interested and warm throughout your stay. If I would go back to this part of the island, I would definitely stay in Elpida apartments again!

Liked best: hospitality of the owners, spacious room, pool/poolbar, nice breakfast (eggs or toast)
Liked least: a few essentials were missing in our kitchen, but we immediately got them when we asked for them. Outside this, I can't think of anything else :)

“Best apartments in Gouves”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

These apartments are family run by Efi, Alex, and son Nikos. It is a 5 minute stroll to the resort centre's lovely shops and restaurants and a 10 minute stroll to the beautiful beach. The rooms are cleaned and bedding and towels changed every 3 days by Efi, and the pool is cleaned every morning by Alex and Nikos. If you want to eat at the pool then Alex makes wonderful food. (best mousaka in Gouves). This Family are the most lovely, friendly and accommodating people I have ever met and nothing is too much trouble for them. Anything you need, you only have to ask. Will definitely recommend and will be going back. Had a fantastic holiday.
Thank you Efi, Alex, and Nikos.
