This place is amazing. Spotless, roomy with excellent service. Even have a bath mat which is rare for Greece. The owner is so helpful and friendly, cleaners even emptied the bins on the Sunday. Not usual for cleaning service in Greece on a Sunday. Definitely go back again very very soon. Would class as three star.

We love the Roulla, having stayed at the Clio last year by default, we thought that everyone always looked happy at the Roulla, and now we know why. The staff are friendly ,the apartments are clean and tidy, the pool is lovely and the village is a short stroll away. You can use any pool in the area, (there are four to choose fomr in very short walking distance) that is if you don't fancy a beach day.
It is very quiet here, so is defintley a location for people who don't want a party on thier doorstep.
We are booked again for next year, we continue to love Alykes and now the Roulla

Eleni was an amazing host, attentive and friendly, she genuinely cares about her guests.
The whole place is immaculate, the pool, the gardens and the rooms are so clean and cared for. It is the perfect place to stay, close to the beach and bars and restaurants but not too close! At the apartments you feel secluded but ten minutes later you are in the middle of town! Whilst you are there you have to go to Baco bar... During the day you can laze on their sun loungers and enjoy beer and snacks but in the evening it is a gem of a restaurant. Book a Shirley Valentine table and eat on the beach by candlelight!
Will definatley go back to Roulla next year!

We booked this holiday 6 weeks before we went and had little idea of what to expect. We found a fantastic welcome from Eleni the owner and nothing was too much trouble. A bottle of water was left to start us off and later on a bottle of the owner's own wine was also left (although better drunk mixed with lemonade). The room was cleaned daily and was basic as expected, but with enough for our needs - even a TV, but only in Greek! The pool area and gardens around the apartments were lovely.

The next door hotel (the Clio) does provide snacks all day and evening, and also plays music for most of the day. This was loud enough to hear in our apartment, but not intrusive (we just wished they'd stop playing Abba so much!).

The resort was not busy, even when half term in the UK started halfway through our holiday, which was just perfect for us.

We stayed here last September for a week and found the rooms to be incredibly basic. All of the rooms have glass doors which are frosted although you can still pretty much see through them. This isn't great when they lead directly into your bedroom!! The bathroom was tiny and the shower curtain didn't reach to the floor of the shower so the whole bathroom got soaked everytime one of us had a shower! The bed was incredibly hard and the pillows were very old so as a result weren't very comfortable at all.

Eleni who owns the apartments is however the best part about them - she is warm, friendly and always available to help you. All in all these apartments just need a little love and care, and they could be so much better than they are right now.

The Apartments are about 10 minutes from the centre of Alykes and have a beautiful view of the mountains. You are away from the town so if you want a chilled night then you can. You have to walk across the salt flats to get to the beach which are a bit of an eye sore! Having said that once you get across them you reach a lovely white sandy beach which was possibly the best part of the resort.

OK for a cheap holiday but nothing more than a week!!

The Roulla apts are a fantastic place to stay, just a ten minute walk from the beach and the centre, it has amazing views of the backdrop of mountains. The scenery is beyond beautiful, we had such a fantastic time. We travelled with my parents (almost 70) and my children 14, and 6, each and every one of us loved every minute of it. We have been to zante before, but to stay with Eleni and her family at this family run business was wonderful. The people who own this accommodation make your holiday the absolute best, either you want to be alone, or social, either way your stay here will be most memorable for all the right reasons. Book early to avoid dissappointment.
