“Stunning Location”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

A warm welcome from Maria, Jenny & Poppi was only topped by the stunning views across Elounda Bay. It was a second honeymoon for us and Maria organized some beautiful flowers and wine on arrival. A special location with a super team to look after you. Thanks for everything, we can understand why people keep coming back to the Alykes Apartments

Room Tip: Room 201 has stunning views across the bay to Spinalonga

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alikes. We were in room 101 on the ground floor facing the sea. The room was adequate and what you would expect of self catering apartments in Greece. The apartments are at the far end of Elounda about a 10 minute walk from the village square with a host of restaurants along the sea front in between. We really liked the position of the apartments as they were close enough to all the amenities but far enough for peace and quiet.
The staff at the apartments are great and the apartments are well maintained.
We have seen reviewers complain that the sunbeds are not around the pool but We actually liked that as sometimes you feel like your in a goldfish bowl when people are sat around the pool watching you swim.There are plenty of sunbeds on the grass area to the front or on the two roof terraces.
We attended the barbecue night at the apartments and thought it was worth the 14 euro each, the food was nice and we had fun with other guest taking part in the quiz and having a boogie at the disco.
We had a very enjoyable relaxing Holiday and hope to visit again in 2015.

Room Tip: Room 101 has good views but can be a little noisy as its right next to the bar area. Think there may...

Came back from Alikes apartments on 19th September. We did not want to come home. The apartments are in a beautiful situation with wonderful views of the sea. They are spotlessly clean and kept that way during your stay by the very hard working cleaning ladies. We had read the reviews about the wonderful staff before we arrived and were not disappointed. They really do make this place what it is. They are always friendly and helpful not to mention great company. They even seem to know most of the guests by name! Jenny, Popi and Maria,thank you so much for a lovely holiday. We will definitely be back next year, hopefully for 2 weeks!

stayed at alikes for 2 weeks Aug/Sept 2013 ive rated this property 3 stars would of been 5 for location and cleanliness and friendliness of jenny but 0 stars for value for money,be prepared on arrival to pay an extra 130 euros for aircon and safey deposit box,the final straw was being charged 16 euros for 2 bacon&mushroom sandwiches and 2 glasses of fresh orange so I vowed not to spend another penny at the alikes including the overpriced and overhyped barbecue night and on doing so the socalled family atmosphere towards us gradually disappeared .As for elounda itself its an absolute dream the working fishing harbour the tavernas, restaurants and shops and the locals are second to none they make you feel welcome , I didn't think anywhere could beat skiathos but elounda knocks spots off it , an extra mention for MR Manos and his sister at Eden garden bar , Costas at Malibu bar , Marios bar , Mario himself and Nikos at Mams see yous next year , all the best Dave&Angie

We stayed for 10 nights at alikes apartments in September 2013.we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and were serviced every day. The disappointment was the pool which was an excuse for a pool, very small, in the shade and no room for any sun beds next to it. If you had a swim, you then had to climb 3 flights of stairs to the roof to sunbathe and dry off. We had an apartment with a balcony at the back, no view of the sea, which in a way was a blessing because the balconies at the front had the night noise up to 1am, which was no good if you wanted to go to bed before.

Room Tip: For a good nights sleep ask for a room with balcony at the back with no view, if not going to bed be...

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!
