This place has a waterfront spot and a great little pool. Plus, Elounda’s bars and restaurants are a short walk away.
This family-run hotel is right on the water, with views of the sea and mountains. It’s got 1 pool and a bar to go with it. And everyone comes together for the weekly barbecue night.
All the rooms come with a balcony or a terrace, and most of them have sea views. It’s self-catered here, so guests often head to Elounda’s tavernas 5 minutes’ walk away. The beach is the same sort of distance.

The Best Holiday of our lives
Having had a really tough year a home, we decided to take our two teenage children (19 & 17 year olds) on a holiday. Thought it would be difficult to find somewhere to suit all of us. Our travel agent recommended Alikes Apartments in Elounda. We couldn't have asked for more. We were greeted by Olga and Mr. George who made us feel so welcome and at home. Apartment was small but spotless and location was perfect. During the day we took a short hike (about 30mins) over a hill to the most beautiful secluded sandy beach we had ever seen. There the children could hire a jet ski and we swam in crystal clear water. Most of the beaches closer were stoney, so this was worth the hike. In the evening we'd stroll along the harbour into the town where we had a vast choice of places to eat. (Mr George's other restaurant "Olio" was one of our favourites). We had great fun at "Bingo Nights" with big George where we quickly got to know the other guests. Poppi and Jenny at the bar were so lovely and helpful too. We hope to go back again and again. I had been to Crete several times but nowhere compared to Elounda.More
Amazing week away
Me and my partner have both just come home and I am already planning another trip there next year, the staff are very friendly and helpful and we are looking forward to seeing them all again soon. Very close to the town, 5 mins walk to the square. Food was lovely and great views out of our balcony and rooftops. Thanks again to Mr George, Olga and Jenny for making the stay amazing :-) Dan + Rochelle xxxMore
The location of these apartments and the wonderful staff made this a fantastic holiday, our first visit to Crete. Georges, Olg, Jenni and Popi work so hard and make you feel very welcome. The bbq night, bingo and music nights were all really good fun and encourage all the guests to get to know each other. Please try Mr George's restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Italian, Olio ( we went 3 times!) We went the first week of October. The pool is cold but great once you are in ( the sea was warmer). Stoney beaches around Elounda so wear footwear to help you get in. Definitely worth tge swim once you are in.More

access to hotel 1 in 4 slope of 4 steps no hand rail. room offered up 2 further flights of steps. no other hotel available. room offered with no shower, bath only. Next room guests asked to swap, embarrassing. problem handled in very offhand manner, 'Its only a room'. Booked though Thomson access confirmed.More
So good we did it twice!
We visited the Alikes for Whit week and loved it so much that when we saw an unbeatable offer for end of September beginning of october we just had to go again. I think everything has been said over and over and it really is true. The rooms are spotless and comfortable and when I wasn't particularly keen on our first room Mr George went above and beyond to give us a different room which had a brilliant view over the pool, bar and out to sea. The staff are, without exception, the heart of what makes this place so very special. It was truly like being one big family with all of the other guests and as someone who finds socialising with people quite difficult usually, I actually managed to enjoy meeting and getting to know some lovely people. Jenny and Popi work their socks off and always have a smile and time for a chat even when they are absolutely knackered after the very long hours they put in. They are a credit to the hotel and themselves. Olg is a sweetheart with a selfie stick and captured moments that we probably wouldn't have that gave us extra memories of a fantastic break. George and his bingo calling is not for the faint hearted! He is hilarious and loud and wonderful lol. And the lovely Mr George, a proper gentleman who just wants his guests to be happy. Already looking to book for next year. Love to all from Nicki and Jason xxxxMore
