“Fine, but dont believe all the excellent reviews !”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Location: uphill from the village,quiet for Greece,panoramic sea view,it is not though a "short stroll" to the beaches,with children or the the less able it would be a tiresome trudge.Hire your own transport,get out and about, plenty of other bathing spots around the island. The olympic supplied tariff from Budget hire is vastly overpriced, shop around, Amenities: good shop, daytime snack bar well run by Poppy. In the evenings the restaurant is the focus, to the detriment of the bar. The young lad there is overworked, having to also be a waiter, barker and dogsbody, bar service becomes rushed and infrequent. Accomodation: the upper balconied rooms look great, mine , room 14, dull and dingy (lights on during the day !) just a chair and worn table outside offering zero privacy as it is next to the busy cleaners store and base. If you are a single male traveller you will more than know the score ! by the way it is Olympic who allocate the rooms. MAJOR GRIPE.......160,yes ,160 euros for aircon and safe per fortnight !!! Overall:I can actually see why people return every year but not for me

Room Tip: Olympic allocate the rooms, not the owners

We have known Theo for over 29 years and when we discovered he owned Eleni Apartment we go back every year, Wonderful place to stay, peaceful brilliant views and the food is excellent also.
Apartments basic but spotlessly clean. Excellent pool area kept clean and tidy. Eleni is positioned in the quieter end of the village, short walk to quiet beaches and coves. Recommend Fokia cove for snorkeling and Kavos beach, also small but very quiet. Who better to look after you than Theo and his lovely wife Giota.

Just got home from a fantastic week's stay at the Eleni. You can believe all the good reviews - it's in probably the best location in Pefkos and fully deserves all the compliments on Trip Advisor. Theo and Giota are amazing hosts and you feel at home from the minute you arrive. Poppy works in the bar/cafe - she's cheerful and friendly, she makes lovely lunches and snacks and generally exudes happiness! Panos made us some lovely cocktails; service with a smile! This was our first time at the Eleni but it won't be our last. We don't usually return to the same place but, for the Eleni, I think we'll make an exception. Highly recommended. Thanks Theo for a lovely week xxxx

Room Tip: Not a bad room here but ours was 11 and looked straight out across the pool to the sea

We have not yet stayed at the Eleni despite going to Pefkos for the last four years due to it being so popular and always booked up but visit the pool bar everyday of our stays and regularly dine there, breakfast , lunch and dinner. Well what can i say, the pool and pool bar are a lovely relaxed setting with everything you need to pass the day away in total bliss. The owner Theo now feels like a friend to us, always remembering us and nothing is too much trouble. this year despite not staying there he offered to give us a lift up to our apartments (Ziakis , which are right at the top of the hill ) if we ever didn't want to walk and then on one night when my wife had an upset stomach and didnt come out he got his chef to make a rice soup, which is a local cure for this ailment, to send up for her. this was greatly appreciated and shows what a genuine , great man he is . on top of this there is the lovely Poppy who works the pool bar and is new this year. again, a truely lovely young lady who became a friend to my wife and i and greatly improved my wifes greek lol. Then there is the "old reliable" Rajeev in the kitchen who it is always a pleasure to see and makes a wonderful curry as well as the traditional
greek dishes. All in all a wonderful place who where we will continue to return to every year where we feel like its our second home. Thanks for everything .

This is my second visit visiting the Eleni on my own and yet again, I had a fantastic holiday! Basic accommodation (reflected in the very reasonable prices) but very thing you need for a week or two away. The owner Theo and his wife are lovely and can't do enough for you. Fantastic location, just a ten minute walk from Pefkos and with a an authentic taverna, bar, and well stocked supermarket on site. A big thank you to the lovely Popi for befriending me and for making it an amazing
holiday! Can't wait to see you again next year X

Numerous visits to the Eleni and still we keep returning. This is basic 'Greek' accommodation but with a lovely pool, shop, bar and taverna. The charming hosts, Theo and Giota, who treat their guests like old friends will do everything to make your stay memorable. It's a quiet spot but within 10 minutes walk of the main centre of Pefkos with all it's tavernas and bars and shops. Views from the rooms are simply beautiful.

I holidayed at the Eleni Apts this year in July, normally i do go later in the season but was surprised at how quiet it was, accommodation is what you expect in Greece, very basic. The Owner and his wife are great hosts. The on site Restaurant serves up wonderful Greek cuisine and i enjoyed their meals so much i ate there every single night of my 2 week stay. The rooms are very clean and the views from my Patio at No 10 was brilliant. Martin the Barman/chef was very attentive and we would have long chats about life and the universe !!. The Eleni is only a short stroll from the centre of Pefkos where there are more bars and places to eat, chinese to Indian to local Greek food you are not spoiled for choice, I enjoyed my stay that much that i have already booked for August 2014 for 3 weeks at the Eleni, cant wait.
