The Alonia apartments are excellent. Mike and Irena are great hosts, very friendly but not over friendly. When we we went to the pool on the 1st day we got here, I got a drink for us both and was told to pay later, within 5 mins a delicious plate of freshly prepared nibbles and salad was bought over to our sunbeds, this happened most days. Made us feel like we were guests in their home. It is so relaxing here.
The rooms are very spacious and clean with clean towels everyday if needed. We were in room 25, 1st floor facing the pool. I think facing the pool is better because the rooms that face the sea are near the busy road.
The BBQ is excellent, plenty of food and drink all evening, well worth the €19 each. In fact we ate here most evenings, a bit of a limited menu, but the food is great and relatively cheap, Mike and Irena do the cooking, so you really feel like their guests. No dessert menu, because you don't need one, fresh fruit and Raki on the house!
The only complaint, if it is that, are the local dogs, a few nights we were disturbed by their loud barking that went on for quite a while, not the fault of the hotel just the way it is here.
We hired a car from across the road, he gave us a good deal when we mentioned where we were staying. He was very informative of where to drive on the island and everything he said was spot on. Go up the mountains to Therizo and down through the gorge! The views are amazing. The roads are twisty but great fun.
We will definitely stay here again, and probably again and again haha. Thank you very much Mike and Irena
