“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

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.

I totally agree with sandie 62's review. We have also just returned from a fabulous fortnight staying at the Roulla Apartments in Alykes. The rooms and pool area were spotless. Eleni and her family couldn't do enough for us, even helping me learn a few words of greek. We will definitely be returning to stay in the Roulla and would highly recommend it.

Just returned home from another amazing week at the Roulla & Efi apartments in Alykes. Before I go any further I will just make it clear that there are two Roulla apartments here on trip advisor these being in Alykes and the other in Skiathos so please read all reviews clearly before you decide. The reviews for Roulla in Skiathos don't appear to be very good and for the last 8 years they have been excellent for Roulla in Alykes so don't get confused by this. In my opinion having just returned from a fabulous holiday I can honestly say you will not be disappointed. Eleni and her family will ensure you have a excellent holiday in their lovely accommodation which are spotlessly clean and have everything you could wish for to enjoy your holiday in beautiful surroundings. So go ahead and book you will not regret it!

Visited 04/07/13. A good location and only a 5 minutes walk down across the salt flats to the beach and main street for the bars and restaurants. Hotel and grounds were clean and tidy but fairly basic. Very small pool but there aren't many rooms so no problem getting a sunbed. No bar but you could use the one in the hotel next door so not really an issue. What made the holiday was the owner Eleni who was really friendly and couldn't do enough for you. On the basis of this alone I would have no hesitation in going back.

I stayed here one of the last weeks of October . The apartments are amazing , some of the best on the island! Everything is spotlessly clean thanks to yota and I can't find a fault with this place. What really makes it extra special is Eleni. She is one of the kindest and most generous people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and she is so welcoming you feel like family. Definitely will be returning.

Stayed at Roulla with my sister is September. Day one we had a terrific thunder storm and ended up with no electricity or water but nothing phased Eleni who lit candles and provided us with wine! The appartments are immaculate, the location is great ,a nice stroll into town or to the beach but total peace and quiet if that's what you are looking for this is perfect. Hope to return next year many guests do.,
