“Wonderful Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2008

This is a fabulous hotel in a wonderful location- the perfect base for any holiday!
We stayed in the cheapest room available (ground floor studio) and were thrilled with it. It was spacious, bright and clean with all necessary amenities and a lovely bathroom complete with white suite and all!
The location is so close to the town and there are such a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance. our favourite was the "mediterranian restaurant" which was on the other side of the harbour from alatha (near from where the boats leave for spinalonga) and on the top floor. It had beautiful views and a gorgeous menu offering more sophisticated and tasty food than elsewhere.They do the best desert in the world...you MUST try the marscapone mouse!
The one complaint we have about alantha apartments was the awful service at the pool bar. Whilst the other staff were wonderful and thoroughly helpful (especially Linda), watch out for Jane/Janet by the pool. She literally shouted at two guests who asked for breakfast after half ten and is breathtakingly rude. She will not bring the food to you and insists on you taking the dirty plates back to her. You may as well eat in your own kitchen! Plus her dog Chloe freaks out if you take a picture of it (although I don't know why you would want to) so tread carefully!
Other than this, the apartments are absolutely outstanding, and agios nikolaos a wonderful place to stay.

Just got back from our hols and stayed at the Alantha. We were really impressed with the apartment. We stayed in a studio on the 3rd floor and the room was really good. Very clean and very modern for greece. The shower was probably the best I have had when staying in greece with hot water at all times.

There is a roof top pool which is nice with really good view. The downside is that the pool is cold. There is also a pool bar which shuts at 6 or 7. Another downside is there is no other bar in the apartments that is open later.

The resort itself is very nice. The lake and the harbour is nice with lots of restaurants and bars again the downside is the people that hassle you to go into their restaurant or bar.

The walk to the lake from the apartment is only about 8 mins but lots of steps on the way back!!

We found a couple of nice restaurants. The 1st is La casa which is on the lake. we went here 3 times as the food was great and we had excellent service. The other is La strada which is just up from La casa. Again great food and great service.

All in all a good holiday.

I have just returned from my stay at the Alantha apartments and I am thrilled with the service and the overall cleanliness of the hotel.
We had a studio apartment on the first floor and the room was more than big enough for our needs. We had a large balcony with views over some pretty little gardens. The room was kept spotlessly clean and all of the staff especially Linda on the reception was extremely friendly and helpfull. One small point though was the in room music was not working. Also it was a bit disapointing having twin beds! Not very romantic! LOL. Every night we pushed our beds together and every morning the maid seperated them again! LOL.
The rooftop terrace and swimming pool gave beautiful views over the sea and and harbour area. Although the swimming pool was absolutely freezing cold! They definatley need to get that sorted out!
Although the apartments are very convenient for the town centre, be warned that there are a huge amount of steps to get you down on to the promenade. It was not a problem for us, but if you have any difficulty walking then the Alantha may not be suitable for you.
Ag Nik is a wonderfull town with lots of very romantic taverna's . I can highly recomend the Trata for it's wonderfull Pork souvlaki.
I would also highly recommend Kyma taverna which is on the very end of the marina, it is a very basic looking little taverna on the waters edge, but the food and the hospitality were outstanding. The owner was extremely helpfull and insisted on cooking us a meal of different mezze that were his families favourites. It was wonderfull. The food was cooked to perfection, the service was friendly and the cost very very reasonable.
Another restaurant that we enjoyed was La Casa, which was on the side of the lake. Costas the restaurants Kamaki was very friendly and charming and the food was really yummy, although the wine was a little over priced!
Further up the road is a great little itallian la Strada, the seafood here is to die for, although it is a little pricey!
Another romantic taverna is out of the town centre at the waters edge the Dolphin. The food was great and the setting absolutely stunning!
Overall I would say that the Alantha apartments are a good place to stay and Ag Nik a fantastic town for a romantic getaway!
I would definately stay at the Alantha apartments again.
