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!
