“Heaven !”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

This year was our 7th visit to Alykes and our 5th to Roulla, for us it is heaven and that is why we keep going back. Eleni makes the holiday even better and always gives such a warm welcome that makes you want to go back. The apartments are clean and simple, the flowers around the outside areas are lovely and it is a very peaceful and relaxing environment. The pool area is chilled and there are plenty of sunbeds and if you want a snack or a cold drink just pop across to the Clio hotel. Alykes is a small resort and not posh but it has a lovely beach, plenty of nice places to eat and a lovely atmosphere and the people who live and work in the resort are the friendliest we have met on our travels so here's to visit number 8 next year !

2nd Visit to this wonderful accommodation. Lovely setting, high standard of cleanliness, spacious room & balcony. Already booked for 2 weeks in September and hopefully will be back next June. Eleni is a wonderful lady and nothing is too much trouble for her, she's always around and happy to chat. Water is available from her office so no need to lug it back from the supermarket. Beach is a 5 minute stroll away and is one of the best beaches we have seen. Alykes has a great selection of tavernas all serving excellent food and so cheap!! If you don't feel like walking, the Clio Hotel next door serves good food and drink and have a great Greek evening. Everyone welcome. These 2 wonderful ladies (Eleni & Yiota) ensure your stay here is a happy & memorable experience. We can only confirm it is deservedly number 1.

Room Tip: Top floor not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties as there are a number of stairs.

We returned home on 26th June from another wonderful holiday at Roulla, just myself and my daughter. As ever Eleni is the perfect hostess as are her family. We feel so safe in Alykes. Our appartment was wonderfully clean and well kept, these appartments are so very peacefull and quiet and yet so close to amenities. Eleni is always available and is very keen to ensure that her guests are well catered for she greets on arrival and waves on departure nothing is too much trouble for her even making her lovely coffee. We send Eleni and family all our love and will be back soon xxxx

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Roulla apartments in Alykes were the ideal base to explore this wonderful resort set just off the salt flats and within a 10 mins stroll to the center of alykes.
it has already been mentioned many times of how nice and helpful Eleni is and I can do know more than endorse the other reviews she is a top class host from the moment you meet and greet her to every time she sees you it s always a smile and genuine warmth.
the apartments themselves are spotless and with safety deposit boxes in your rooms for an extra £10 euros per week.the pool area is great and with lots of sun beds available but without a bar on hand which I find is ideal as you can take your own food and drink around he pool area without feeling guilty .will defiantly recommend the apartments and resort area.

Room Tip: we had room 5 on the ground floor and room 8 just above as our late room both were nice but slightly...

Roulla Apartments could not be better. Wonderful owner, Spotless, Superb location. Eleni the owner was so thoughtful saw I had a walking stick and change our accommodation from the third to the ground floor. Lots of free wine. The pool was brilliant and again spotless. Lots of good places to eat about 20 euros a couple including wine. This is a quite part of the island. Do not miss the land train trip to the mountain for a Greek Evening. But the best of all was wonderful Eleni! Like many others we will be back.

Located about a 10 minute walk from the beaches across the salt marshes.

Room Tip: They were all good. The ones at the back were quiet with a mountain view.

We have just returned from the perfect holiday! On arrival at the Roulla & Efi Apartments, we were greeted with the warmest, friendliest welcome I have ever experienced. When Eleni showed us our apartment I was so overwhelmed that I gave her a hug and said thank you! Our apartment was cleaned every day by the lovely Yotta, who seemed to work tirelessly all day long, smiling all the while. The whole place was spotless! There are beautiful trees and flowers around the apartments, which we enjoyed very much when relaxing on our balcony.

Eleni could not do enough for us. If we needed local knowledge she had it and we always stopped by the reception area on our way past for a chat, knowing that she would always make time for us. What a lovely lady, she even left us a bottle of wine on the table in our apartment. The day after we arrived, we noticed a problem with the fridge, Eleni had it replaced immediately with a brand new one - now you can't beat that for service!

The Roulla Apartments are situated just behind the salt flats in Alykes but don't be put off by the location, because on one side, the apartments look towards the Clio Hotel (which is very nice and has a bar and restaurant - very handy when sunning yourself by the pool!) and on the other side there is a lovely scenic view of the hills. It takes just a few minutes to walk along the path to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops, where we met some more friendly, lovely people! Even the lady in the supermarket gave us a hug and a kiss when we told her we were going home!

When it was time to leave, I knew for sure that I would one day return to the Roulla, to Eleni, and all the wonderful people we met in Alykes.

Thank you Eleni, you made our holiday extra special!

Just returned from 2 weeks at Roulla - a return visit for us - and delighted to report that the wonderful friendly service given by Eleni & her staff has not changed one bit. The standard of cleanliness is second to none due to the hard work done daily by Yotta - helped by Eleni at peak times of course. The pool is sparkling clean and clear. Thanks Eleni for another fantastic holiday even in the rain! A truly lovely location for peace and quiet - beautiful views, good local food in the village - and excellent wine available from Eleni! Room 301 amazing - but then so are many of the others! We will definitely be back. Thanks again for making two old pensioners very happy.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
