Been coming here for years so you may think me biased....but.....I cannot fault the cleanliness and hospitality of these apartments. The family rooms are spacious and cool. The apartments have an excellent pool and surrounding gardens. Eleni your host is very kind and helpful and speaks good English! Definitely a place for families and Fun around the pool is absolutely encouraged! Rooms are basic and clean. The hotel next door offers a good selection of food and drinks so you don't need to cook! Eleni has a lovely selection of home grown olive oil and wine which are most palatable. The apartments are a 10 minute walk to the beach where I recommend the Palm Tree 2 for snacks. The beach has,shallow warm Crystal blue waters. Highly recommended all round. Hence why I have returned year after year! YAMAS!

Just returned from our first visit to Roula Apartments in Alykes. Wonderful hostess who looked after us well. Thank you Eleni. We will definitely return. Close to beach and restaurants. Friendly and clean. Plenty of sunbed etiquette where NO ONE reserved beds. Wonderful. Lovely pool and lovely wine. Room 301 great for family of four with balcony. Thank you Eleni. Bea and family xxxx

The holiday began with the warmest welcome from Eleni and her family, the best hostess ever! The apartments are great so very clean and has everything we need. A lovely quiet location, with a lovely pool, including a children's pool for the youngest of travellers. The views are stunning and with the beach just a few minutes walk away makes this the perfect place to stay.
I guarantee that once you stay here you will want to return immediately! We have returned and it is like coming home to your family.

My partner and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Roulla Apartments. All I can say is.... I want to go back NOW!!!!
Eleni makes you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble for her.
The rooms are cleaned daily an have all the amenities you need for a self catering holiday.
Alykes is a lovely resort and the sea is amazing, beautifully clear water and warm!!!
There is a good choice of restaurants and bars all friendly and welcoming.
There is a variety of excursions to visit, we chose the shipwreck and blue caves trip which was fantastic. The sea is the colour you see on the pictures - bright blue!!!
All in all it was a fantastic, chilled out holiday.
I can't wait to visit Alykes and Eleni again!!
Would highly recommend it to both families and couples.

As mentioned by so many, Eleni, the owner, is just simply amazing - so welcoming, caring and goes beyond all expectations to make your holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and she always goes out of her way. The apartments have everything you need, are wonderfully located with beautiful views and a fantastic pool. Perfect location from here to explore the best parts of the island. Calm, relaxing, peaceful, clean, very comfortable......I could go on with all the great things...go discover for yourself.... You won't regret it. The many many returning guests just go to show how special this place is. Enjoy!!!

We stayed at the roulla for 1 week at the end of july , A party of 6 with 2 apartments a 1 bed and a studio,The rooms were very clean the only down side was the shower it had no curtain and low ceiling as on top floor. The pool was on the small side but never busy and very clean. Eleni the owner was very helpful and friendly, Mid week she left us a bottle of wine in the fridge nice touch. The roulla has no bar but a few steps away you can buy drinks and food at the clio hotel and they don't mind if you take drinks back to pool. The beach is a 5/10 mins walk across the salt flats nice walk and a gorgeous beach awaits very good for kids. In the week we ate out every night and didn't have a bad meal, The paradise was very cheap and great food there are a few on the beach nice sea views and quite a few on the road, All serving traditional greek food. Overall GREAT HOLIDAY.

Room Tip: Nicer balonys on the lower two floors.

My partner and I enjoyed a week at these very clean apartments. Although basic they have all you need to enjoy a week in the sun (including air conditioning and a lovely balcony to sit outside) The pool is quiet and always has plenty of sunbeds available and the gardens are pretty and well cared for. Eleni is incredibly kind and welcoming although not intrusive.
The town is a short walk away and although not large it has good shops and plenty of nice restaurants, there are also a variety of trips to go on. The Spiros road train is well worth a trip (3 hours of inland travel, a museum a church and a tavern with unlimited free wine!!)
The down side was the Olympic used - Small Planet Airlines - we had a 4 hour delay on the way out with no apology or explanation and it seems nearly everyone has a similar story to tell!!
