“Home from home, perfect.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed here last year and were so impressed that we returned this year with our friends , who also loved the place. We have now stayed in Elounda nine times , and we are already preparing to book in at the Alykes next September. Maria, Poppi and Jenny are lovely, and make us feel so welcome, they feel like family! The appartments are very clean and comfortable, and the self catering facilities are perfectly adequate, who wants to cook when your'e on holiday ! The BBQ night is great value and food excellent , especially Maria's chocolate brownies! Elounda is the perfect place for a relaxing, peaceful and safe holiday, so many lovely tavernas to choose from. The Kanali taverna is a must for sundowners whilst the husband is fishing!

Bit of a late review but was thinking about our holiday and felt the urge to write one!

It was our first holiday away together and it was perfect! Alykes apartments were in a great location, only a very short walk to all the restaurants etc and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We did end up on a ground floor apartment and one of the air cons didn't work but regardless of those very minor things it was a great place to stay.

I would highly recommend staying here. Elounda is absolutely beautiful, the people are lovely and you are spoilt for choice with restaurants to eat in! All of which may I add are really well priced considering the food was fab! The food and drinks at alykes was great too and very well priced!

We will most definitely be returning to elounda and to alykes apartments very soon I hope!

We read the reviews before booking this holiday.If you havent been before then dont take everyone elses opinion as it being perfect,cos i can assure you it wasnt. Our room was basic,cooking facilities were not existent.How they call it a kitchenette i will never know. SORRY to anyone who thinks im just moaning,im not im being very honest. We had a room near the bar toilets,the noise is horrendous if like us you arent one to sit at the bar until closing time .Doors slamming and very noisy guests. Now for the 3 girls who keep the place running,all very nice and friendly.Not enough to want to return at any time. Elounda itself,Beautiful.Greek people,Beautiful. So if you want honesty there it is.

Room Tip: Ask for an appartment not a bedsit.

The Alikes is perfectly located slightly out of the town but close enough to be within easy walking distance of the town square and the few local shops.
The sea is only a few steps away (across the small seafront road)
The pool is not to everybodys taste as it is salt water (pumped in from across the road) but it is lovely and clean and obviously filtered as you would never know until you get in.
Maria, Poppy and Jenny are first class and always helpful and as others have said before nothing is too much trouble.
It was our first visit here but will certainly not be our last as it is so clean, tidy, well kept and well located.
Elounda is also such a lovely resort with many lovely restaurants so close by - we found it difficult to eat in a bad one over our two weeks !

Tip for budgeting - if you want A/C it's 50Euro a week per room, safe box is 35Euro, and if you need a late checkout this is doable till 1800 and is charged at 30Euro. - we knew in advance so had budgeted these costs into our holiday so no complaint.

Another tip to those who normally do a bit of self catering - We all know that you cannot cook on a self catering holiday but be advised you do not get a chopping board nor decent kitchen knife, so either pack them, by them or --- go next door to the Oasis for lovely homemade cake at lunchtime (why not you're on your hols after all !!)

Room Tip: Rooms 208 - 210 overlook the pool and have views of Spinalonga.

This was our first stay in Elounda. The hotel is in a perfect location. Just 0.5 miles (10mins) walk from the main square along the sea front. However if you don't want to walk that far, there are restaurants and quieter bars pretty much on the door step. You can't really go wrong with anywhere. We ate at a different place every night & it was all lovely. You have a choice of a couple of beaches. One (the main, and best in my opinion) being near the square, the second is 5 mins walk from Alikes. However we found it a little windy. The staff are lovely and will go out of their way to help you with anything. We spent most evenings chatting away to Jenny in the bar until early hours. The rooms have air con charged at €50 per week, and also a safe (which we didn't use) therefore not sure of the price. Spinalonga & Jeep Safari are well worth doing. We got the boat from the main square to Spinalonga for €10 pp/return. We decided to get the return boat to Plaka and walk back to Elounda (around 3.5miles). Just don't wear flip flops! Most people who were staying had stayed at Alikes before and it's easy to see why they return year after year. It's a gorgeous place with plenty to do. If you want to do anything but sunbathe that is. We'll definitely be back!
