Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 29, 2009

The Alikes provided top quality accomodation in a relaxing location. All staff extended a traditonal Cretan welcome, providing advice on places to eat and visit. I especially enjoyed the music night, fab entertainment and great food. Jenny and Maria really made our holiday special as nothing was too much trouble and they were always available to chat or provide refreshment. The apartments were cleaned daily to avery high standard. Thank you Alikes for a great holiday XXX

My wife and I with our two children, 19yrs & 17yrs have just had the best holiday in the past 12yrs of going abroad. The location of the apartments is perfect with incredible views of the bay. The locals are the friendliest and most welcoming of any we've met. The rooms in our apartment were spacious and cleaned to a high standard every day. The cleaner deserves a medal for picking up my son's boxer shorts on a daily basis! The bar area was great to sit at in the evening and we met some great guests who we got on very well with. Maria and Jenny work tirelessly at the bar with a smile and sense of humour, and Anne-Marie is a good organiser.
As i say, we enjoyed our holiday in Elounda - the people we met, the places we visited and the relaxed atmosphere. George, the owner, should ensure he keeps his staff as they are the best we've encountered. Jenny's warm smile and hello was the first to greet us, and her smile and goodbye were the last to see us off - thank you.
We will definitely return to Elounda again.

The apartments were lovely and clean. The position was great,close to a smal beach and only a short walk from the centre of Elounda. All the staff were lovely and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely stay there again

Just returned from a really good stay at the Alikes, the appartments were run by Anne Marie, Jenny and Maria and they were great, nothing was to much trouble and they were always available to help ,advise or just have a chat. The place was spotless and our room was cleaned every day. The location could not have been better only yards from the sea and 100 yards from the nearest beach, the town was 5 minutes walk along the seafront. We were lucky to stay with an excellent group of guests who mixed well with each other. Our favorite restaurant was The Lotus Eaters who severed excellent quality meals and their house wine is brilliant. The best value restaurant was Paparound (known as Poppy's) just down the road from the Alikes, this place looks very ordinary but the food was really well cooked and superb value. Elounda is a really good place with lots of good restaurants and bars but not for those who like nightlife. We had a really good trip on the happy train up into the mountains with superb views of the Elounda bay.

Just returned from a 2 week stay on 2nd August at the Alikes and have to say its the best holiday we have ever experienced. Its very well run, thanks to a great staff, Jenny and Maria who look after the bar and Anne Marie who looks after the accommodation. George (owner) pops down every day. The rooms are cleaned every day and nothing it too much trouble. Its set in a beautiful location, we arrived at night so in the morning you definitely get a WOW factor when you look at the views. Our favourite places to eat were the Melissos, Lotus Eaters and Poppy's which is a little Greek Taverna near the apartments. Recommend you read a book called "The Island" by Victoria Hislop then take a trip to Spinalonga. We did the full guide trip which included a BBQ but would recommend using the local boats for the trip only, that way you get to spend as much time as you like on Spinalonga. We met some great friends and will definitely be returning next year! If your looking for the best of both worlds, peace and quiet but also companionship if you choose, the Alikes is the place to go.....Truly wonderful!

Once you have negociated your way down a little alleyway to the Alikes, you can't help but love the place. Right on the ocean front, with a view directly across the water to the island of Spinalonga, the place is perfect.
The apartments themselves are spotless, with aircon optional, safety deposit box, daily cleaning by the maids and a bar looking straight onto the water. Our room on the second floor had the best view of any hotel we have ever stayed at, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
The pool is fine with a place to swim up to the bar and have a drink without getting out of the water. While the sunbed area is quite small, the owner (Mr George) is in negociations to buy the land next door and expand.
The three girls around reception and the bar (Annemarie, Jenny and Maria) are all lovely and friendly and can't help you enough if you have a query.
It is about a two minute walk to the towns small beach, but about 10 minutes to the main beach, on the farside of the town square and harbour. The walk is right along the waterfront, with plenty of bars if you need a quick beer to refresh yourself with.
Overall we could not fault the apartments or Elounda. I sure we will be back!

Would recommend these apartments to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday on Crete. Booked independently (straightforward), picked up a hire car at Heraklion airport and travelled to Elounda in just over an hour. The apartments were cleaned daily to a high standard and all the staff were extremely friendly throughout our stay. We visited most of the coastal resorts of Eastern Crete and did not find anywhere else that we would rather have stayed. Would recommend visiting Anne Marie, Maria and Jenny at the Alikes / Alykes for a guaranteed good measure of hospitality! Terry & Anne Goodman. Cornwall.
