Our first time at Alantha Apartments (apt 305 which we can unreservedly recommend) and it won't be our last. Great location with a lovely view of the bay. Very clean with fabulous staff - Antonis, Chrissie, Lisa, Elizabeth and Vans couldn't have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. Chrissie's breakfast mustn't be missed - especially her omelettes!! Plenty of lovely restaurants in Ag Nik, but two in particular definitely worth a visit are the Amalthea which overlooks the Kitroplatia Beach and the "To Pareaki" which is a meze restaurant near the Hermes Hotel on the front prom. Both superb. If you want to visit some places hereby then Kritsa, Elounda and Istron beach are "musts" in our view.

Room Tip: Request a sea view if possible - we nada sea view in 305.

We stayed at the Alantha for 2 weeks in mid June 2013 and had a wonderful holiday. This family run hotel provides an excellent base from which to explore eastern Crete. Our one bed apartment was spacious and had a view from the balcony of the beautiful Bay of Mirabello. It was very clean and comfortable with towels and sheets being frequently changed. Adonis and his staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would recommend you arrange a taxi transfer because the coach transfer really is long – 3 hours in our case – for a journey which takes a taxi an hour. Taxis are also able to drop you at the door (which the coaches cannot access) and avoid the VERY steep climb up ramp and steps from the seafront; with cases this is very hard in the heat and near impossible if you’re not physically fit. We loved the hotel and will definitely be going back – soon…

Have just returned from my annual holiday in Agios Nikolaos and the Alantha Apartments. I first stayed there sixteen years ago and have been returning every year since . The location of the hotel is ideal, just a short walk to the centre of town, the port and the beach. The apartments are well equipped and spotlessly clean, towels and bed linen changed every two days. The rooftop swimming pool and bar is an ideal spot for relaxing after a morning exploring the town. I can highly recommend the Alantha Apartments. I would not go anywhere else!

Having just came back from Agios Nikolaos I thought will post a quick review. Location of the hotel is absolutely perfect - 3 mins walk to the beach, 4 mins to major Greek supermarket - get out of the hotel, turn right, and take first road up, to the giant stairs.. (!!) Walk up and the supermarket is there. Great to get some water too. On the same street by the way there is the best we've been Greek restaurant (opposite Museum), with most awesome orange liqueur cake for dessert. 2 mins walk from supermarket. Okay, back to the hotel. We had a room with a street view, which was really good actually as we could sit at the balcony in the evenings and just enjoy a bit of the Greek way of life.. On the 5th floor there is most amazing swimming pool with awesome views across the bay - which unfortunately closes at 6. That's the only downsize. Beds were comfortable, apartments well equipped, hairdryers were there as well. Cleanliness - not amazing here, floor seems to be never washed - albeit very clean as the apartment (we kept it this way!), towels were changes daily and nicely arranged, but cups, or empty glass was never touched. So seems all they were changing were beds. But! Alantha is only 4 mins walk from the centre - fantastic for quick walk there and back at literally any time. Additionally, awesome owner, and Christie at the bar - makes fantastic omelettes. Internet works in apartments with no problem. Beautiful place, with perfect location, if I visit Crete again - certainly will only stay at Alantha - and try to negotiate longer swimming pool and bar opening hours!

My husband and I have been going to Agios Nikolaos on holiday ( sometimes twice a year ) since 1983. We have stayed in various types of accomodation in and around the town. We booked into Alantha for a wedding Oct.27th. It was a great hotel, imaculate, Lisa the housekeeper has the hotel shining like a new pin.Beds changed every other day and towels, more frequently if required. The price did not match the service we received, Antoni the manager also went above and beyond all expectations and we will certainly be back.The only draw back was the transfer to the hotel, it took the coach 2.5 hours, then it droped us off at the promanade for us to climb a hill that to me seemed the north face of everst, poorly lit narrow lane with no direction of hotel.definately will go by taxi next time, could not be easier for the town only a five minute walk, but a hill on the way back, taxi from town only 5 euros.

Room Tip: we had two rooms, 304 to front thrid floor has half decent view of the sea,
