“Great Hotlel”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

To stat off I would like to mention are host, mike, a very nice man who is more than happy to help you in anyway possible be this giving you free food as you sit by the pool or bar, sitting down for a meal with his friends and family or driving you out for a look at the worlds oldest olive tree or to Kolymbari to see their fish festival. The room was also great, very clean and spacious. The local area is more than enough to keep you busy throughout your trip, with restaurants and bars only a ten minuet walk away, two convince stores just across the road and two supermarkets just a short walk the other way. The nearest beach is only across the road and while it may be pebbly not sandy still as crystal clear waters. If you want a sandy beach or to visit Chania then just jump on one of the regular buses going either way. This is a really nice place with a great host. 10/10

Really would recommend these apartments to anyone mikey the owner/host makes this holiday we have never stopped anywhere before with such a great host.We went to the pool every morning & he brought us over pastries or melon when you go for a drink he give you a plate of food with lots of different foods on it.we were robbed while we were there our own fault we left our window open mikey was really upset & took my husband down to the police station 3 times to speak to the police luckily they caught the people ( not Greeks but immigrants) .he has a great BBQ on Thursday nights, there is so much food & free drinks you don't need to eat for quite a while the apartments are lovely & clean & all have great views there are some nice places to walk but as the weather was so hot we didn't walk a great deal.this is one of the best holidays we have had for a long time & even though we had the robbery & a 7 hour delay on our flight home we will be back to enjoy the warmth,hospitality,& the beautiful area & apartments.

Before we booked to go away we wanted exactly what the past reviews highlighted. We had that and more! Michael was a great host! He made you feel so at home, and his hospitality was perfect. If you want a relaxing time away this is the place. It has a very clean pool, very clean studios, pool bar to keep you topped up through the day and night, food Michael prepares is so fresh and fabulous that you will not want to cook if you are self catering. Opposite you will find shops that cater for your holiday, 8km away you will find platania, great bars and restaurants if you want a good night out.
Down the road from the apartments 20 min walk you will find beautiful restaurants on the seafront, the water so clear while you eat your fresh fish. We hired bikes and it felt very comfortable as it was mostly flat but go off track and that is when you find secret gems for dining.

Chains town was beautiful by the port, the old town is a must I wish we visited in the evening too.
I cannot fault our time in alonia apartments, we met lovely people (Tina, Richard, jean, Michael) you will not be disappointed if you booked.

We will definitely visit again!

A relaxing week culminating in our daughter's 16th.She had been keen to spend her birthday there.Micky and Stomatis invited us to a meal at the pool with his family and friends. Beth had a suprise cake and bubbly.Kolymbari is a little livelier because of the hotel but still lovely.We went into Platanias and Chania so easy on the bus. Although we experience other places in Greece we are returning again.

We stayed here August 2012. Apartments were clean & spacious. The pool & surrounding area was lovely. The downside was that quite often the owner was absent from the bar so you couldn't get any food or drink. There was a large group who were here after many years returning to these apartments who were happy to help themselves and leave a note of what was owed but we felt uncomfortable doing this. It wasn't a particularly picturesque part of the island with no decent beach to speak of. There were maybe 5 or 6 restaurants at most to choose from all within a 20 min walk which maybe enough for some people but was a little too quiet for us. All in all a nice holiday with the holiday owner taking the teenagers out for 1 eve in nearby Platanias which was a god send as there was not really enough to keep them entertained. Car hire a necessity!

Great holidays at Alonia. It was first time at Alonia Apartments and I am sure that we will come back one day. The rooms are very clean. Pool open 24h/day, good size and very clean. Lovely flowers all around the hotel. Mike and Julia you are the best :) I would recomend this place to everyone who want's relaxing holidays. Great atmosphere. Kolimbari is very quiet but If you want party there is a place called Platanias (only 8 km from Alonia Apartments). Even at 1.00 am you will find many night clubs and restaurants open. Most of them are open till morning.
