“Excellent Apartment, Excellent Location & Excellent Staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Alykes Apartments. We booked to stay here because of their location and cost in comparison to other hotels in the area and the apartments greatly exceeded our expectations.
We stayed in room 'Meltemi' which was a one bedroom apartment in the new block and had a sea view from the bedroom window and sea & pool view from the balcony - a great start to our holiday! The bed was very comfortable and a generous size, the living area was spacious with a large cupboard and a kitchen area. We used the kitchen a couple of times for making sandwiches etc which it is perfectly fine for - the kitchen area is small but there are so many local restaurants there is no need for anything bigger. The pool bar also serves breakfast and snacks throughout the day so the kitchen area wasn't an issue for us at all. The bathroom was very modern with a surprisingly powerful shower - we had a small problem with the shower leaking but Maria had her husband sort this out very efficiently and it certainly didn't have any negative impact on our holiday. The room was immaculate -cleaned daily and towels changed twice a week.
The staff at Alykes are by far the nicest we have encountered at any hotel/apartments. Maria, Popi & Jenny were all very welcoming and made sure everybody was happy during their stay - all were very approachable and made our holiday more enjoyable.
We made use of the pool bar a number of occasions for both drinks & snacks and the centre of Elounda is only a 10minute walk away so the location is perfect whether you like to stay near the pool or explore the local area.
We noticed during our stay that a lot of guests were repeat customers and we can completely understand why. We will definitely be booking to go back in the future and would recommend Alykes to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Elounda.
We would highly recommend the BBQ night if there is one during your stay and Kalypso Restaurant in the harbour - best meal we have had in Greece!

We have been to Elounda for the past 20 years and would recommend the Alikes Apartments as the cleanest and friendliest we have been to. This was our third stay there and the rooms have always impressed us. This time we stayed in a studio, which met with more than our expectations. Will definitely be booking our next holiday to Elounda and will stay once again at these apartments.

Just returned from Alikes appartments where we had a fantastic two weeks.
Maria, Popi & Jenny made us feel at home from the minute we arrived.
Accomodation was excellent with a great sea view.
Holiday was so good we have booked to go back next year.

My husband and I have just spent two weeks in the Alikes Apartments. We found that Maria the complex manager was absolutely fantastic, very thorough and helpful at all times. The location just out of town suited us perfectly. The apartment was spotless with a beautiful sea view and the gym was fully equipped, better than most hotels. Mr George who owns the complex and also owns Kalypso and Zorbo's restaurants, was very welcoming. The staff were superb and the food in both places was excellent. Hope to revisit next year.

Following a recent stay, I agree with recent comments and won’t repeat them in detail. Maria, Popi and Jenny were excellent and make the place. A broken window shutter in our room was fixed quickly. The wall attachment for the shower was very loose so unusable, but that seems to be the Greek standard and a minor gripe, though it results in a lot of wasted water. Our first floor room was quiet but those overlooking the bar area might find it noisy in the season. Alykes serves a very good breakfast and the various tavernas and restaurants used in Elounda all served good food and were welcoming. Would recommend the Melissos, close to Alykes on the left, also Vachus Taverna on the far side of the harbour opposite the children’s play area by the municipal beach. If you want to venture further, Alykes is a good base for short walks to the villages behind the harbour where you will soon be amongst olive groves. Requiring more stamina but well worth the effort is a hike to the top of Mt Oxá, with fabulous views over the resort and beyond. The bus is handy and reasonable for Plaka (walk there, bus back maybe) and Agios Nikalaos (market day is Wednesday). Overall an excellent holiday for the price with good accommodation in a quiet resort (in late May at least) and plenty of options when the weather is fine. (Frank and Terri).

Fantastic holiday choice, quiet apartments tucked away at the quieter end of Elounda village. Many thanks to Maria, Popi and Jenny who between them make you feel so relaxed within minutes of meeting them, lovely people. We had a small studio over looking the pool and for our two week stay it was comfortable and more than met our needs for the time we spent in it. Done alot of the greek islands over the years and this place is up there with some of the best, you wont be dissappointed. Thanks again Ian&Steph (Branfoot)

We never ever go to the same hotel twice but after staying there last September we were only back a week when we booked to go again this June. We were not disappointed. The hotel is absolutely brilliant in every way. Its location is right on the sea front with fabulous views over Spinalonga which is definately worth a visit especially if you have read The Island by Victoria Hislop. The apartments are very very clean and plenty of space in them. The hotel also has a pool and a garden area with plenty of sunbeds for everyone - so dont worry you dont have to be up at the crack of dawn to lay your towels out - but then its English only in the hotel so no worries there. The bar serves all sorts of snacks ranging from breakfasts to light snacks. Air conditioning is available and safes are also available. The Alykes is about a 10 minute gentle stroll into to town square which is lovely with lots of restaurants and a fab harbour.

Room Tip: High floor and overlooking pool as you cant book sea view but most rooms have a sea view.
