Really nice apartments. Good size, modern & clean rooms. Very genuinely friendly staff, Poppi, Maria and Jenny always made us feel very welcome during our stay. Really good gym facilities. Really good bar and pool area. If I went back to Elounda I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Front of hotel rooms were best to enjoy the night breeze if you do not buy air conditioning. Rooms c...

we had a two week stay in Alikes Apartments in Elounda during july 2013. Positives are.... the one bedroom apartment that we stayed in was very nice it was keep clean by the lovely lady who came in every day and it was one of the better apartments we have stayed in on our holidays to Greece . Aso the staff were very nice and helpful. Elounda is a pleasant little resort with quite a few shops and plenty of bars and if you get a bit bored you can get a local bus which are excellent to agios Nicholas which is a lovely seaside town with hundreds of shops.Now to the negatives... if you like to focus your holiday round the pool scene Alikes apartments is not for you! The pool is clean but small and there is no where to sit and sunbath around the pool as to the lay out of the apartments, so sunbathing is done in a different area on a piece of grass at the front of the apartments so u cant sit around the pool or see the pool while your sunbathing and we really missed not being around the pool. The beaches in Elounda are very poor the worse ive seen while traveling to Greece for many years you cant really call them beaches although the sea is fantasticaly blue. One more thing we payed fifty euros per week for air con but it only worked in the bedroom if you want it in the bedroom and living area you had to pay an extra fourty euros which is a bit naughty and they don't tell you this at the time. Beware if you have walking difficulties the is a hill in the resort so its not completely flat.

Room Tip: Room 213 was nice it was a one bed apartment quite big and had a part sea view we were happy with th...

Many thanks to Maria,Jenny, Poppy and all the staff. See you next year.

What a place from arriving in the early hours to a warm welcome to leaving with a said farewell.. Firstly views from rooms are amazing I was in room 109 (beautiful) apartments very good for Greece , had a shower curtain and tray , also double beds , I never cook when away but plenty off equipment if you wanted to try. Pool is a salt water pool so you just float very nice to go up to bar and drink beer while cooling down .
Staff at apartments: Maria your a star very friendly if you need help with anything ask her . Popi works the bar in the day she's very nice and helpful as well , then Jenny who does the bar at night she's also lovely will help you as much as she can.
Overall what a holiday I will return thanks to you all at alikes apartments for a great holiday

Room Tip: Email Maria in advance

Just returned from a wonderful holiday with friends - it was made all the more special by the brilliant staff, Maria, Jenny and Popi. My friends had been to Alikes before and were very excited to be a 'repeater'. The apartment was clean and bright, with a great view over the pool, bar area and sea. There was plenty of restaurants to choose from - our favourites were 'Blue Chairs' (just down the road from Alikes) and Dmitri's in Elounda town. I did worry a bit about Jenny's personal safety (she runs the bar on her own until 2.00am). I can't wait to return to the Alikes and become a 'repeater' myself. Thanks to all at Alikes for a great holiday.

A very warm & friendly welcome from Jenny even though it was 2am when we arrived, she even kept the bar open so we could have a cold drink(this was very much appreciated).
The apartments are of good size,typically greek but with a few extra's toaster / hairdryer etc.
They are cleaned daily the towels & bedding are changed twice a week, the location of the apartments is near perfect, there is a huge selection of taverners within 5-10 minutes walk.
Maria Popi & Jenny all work hard to make this a special place to stay, they all work extra hard on BBQ day & this is worth the 16 euros they charge,it gives you a chance to meet other guests/ make new friends. Will see you again Adrian & Yvonne, Room 204

What can I say ,I should try other places but I love the appartments,i love the area the resturants attached to the Alikes Kalypso for the more formal night,excellant food, and a great suprise is Zorbas is no more its now called Olio`s now, and the most friendly place ive ever been ,Maria and the staff are wonderful and the food is traditional Greek,and Italian to die for loved fresh spagetti with Crayfish and ouzo.But we all return to Alikes appartments because the staff is wonderful,Maria and Popi in the day and Jenny at the evening they are all absoulute first class and now have become good friends. Oh yes and if you like to keep fit while on holiday theres a brilliant Gym there,I looked at it once lol x
