Apartments in Rethymnon Crete Greece: Holiday flats Alkionis beach apartments and studios, Sfakaki guest book


Amazing stay, we felt like Royalty

Stayed here for 1 week with a friend, we had low expectations because the rate was very low. But we were treated like royalty, the family who runs the hotel was super kind to us, so helpful, and they provided 5 star service - really, I can say this as a Hotelschool student specialized in 5 star hotels. There were so many little touches, for example: one day we woke up and sat on our balcony chatting. Suddenly there was a knock on our door, and the lady in charge(so sorry I forgot your name) brought us fresh cake and traditional greek breakfast with a big smile; for free! Just because she saw from outside that we were awake. Also, we got a bigger room than booked (bedroom + living room!, super clean) and we had an amazing stay. Booked through Crete Holidays (super cheap and reliable! Nothing went wrong!!!). Thank you so much, we will be back and I recommended this to all of my friends and family.

If you're looking for a relaxing, friendly place to stay then I can recommend the Alkionis Beach Apartments. Local essentials within walking distance (a few tavernas and supermarkets) but relatively undeveloped and the main tourist area is about half an hour away by foot. The hotel facilities are good, a clean, private pool with ample sun loungers. A corner bar in reception where nothing is too much trouble, particularly for the owner's son, Andreas - always happy to help / advise or just chat. The beach is immediately adjacent to the apartments, no roads to cross, and very quiet. When we were there in August there were many turtle nests, and every morning we raced down to see baby turtle tracks and on one occasion a baby turtle ! The sea is very shallow and safe - easy for an adult to stand up even a hundred metres out, and typically calm with small breakers to play in, lovely golden sand, a few metres of pebbles as you enter the sea with just a few small patches of seaweed.

Great family hotel at the beach

First of all we have to say big thank you to Andreas and his family for a great care. Specialy to his mother who was bringing us every morning fresh home made very tasty breakfast directly to our apartment. That was great for us, because our daughter was not able to wake-up early 🙂 Room was very comfortable, big enough, clean, beds good too. Very nice view from our apartment (room 17) and I think it was the best located room, because there was a shadow on the terase all day long so we could sit in there any time during the day and enjoy the view. And the stairs to the beach were just in front of us. I apreciate the showers at the stairs to the beach and the pool was fine too, specialy for the children and for the days when there were extra big waves in the sea. It is also nice to have a service of drinks (fresh juices, frapé..) and small snacks (toasts, omelets..) and enjoy the seaview on the beach terase or in the room.

A wonderful hotel and great views

I found this place based on the reviews of community. I always expect slightly worse than in the pictures, but from our room on the ground floor was really great views of the sea and the garden. We were here the first week in September. Small sandy beach is very close. We had a room near the front desk, W-Lan. The studio is spacious, has air conditioning (we did not need), safe for 5 £ \ week. The rooms are serviced daily. Hotel offers enough space for parking. Personal and owners are very friendly, always willing to help and inform you. As already mentioned, this place is quiet and well suited for relaxing. I recommend this hotel, it's a great value for money for your money.

Highly recommended!

Perfect location Western Crete, near the sandy beach but sometimes curved beach (almost private), with a good, clean pool, which is guarded by the winds to visit. All apartments have stunning sea views, are spacious and absolutely clean! It is a family business with a lot of respect for the house and its guests! ). Children of all ages are welcome and the breakfast is freshly cooked with very tasty Cretan products. It is an excellent choice for a Crete holiday with or without children and we will definitely return!

A relaxing holiday in this convenienently located hotel

We stayed here for a week earlier this year. we looked around for different hotels and resorts in Rethymnon from the very large complexes to the smaller- family run businesses. Whilst we did not want to be in the city itself, we chose Alkionis because it was in close proximity to Rethymnon and not too far from some great, not crowded beaches. The prices were good value for money, the food was decent and the service was particularly friendly. I would recommend it for couples or young families.
