We enjoyed our holiday at Aloni suites, it didnt take us too long to get here via taxi and was inexpensive, they did offer us a transfer but we thought the taxi would work out cheaper so went with that. The place is set in the countryside and its like an oasis in the desert. We were shown to our room which was huge -
The pool are was very nice and quiet with only a few other people staying at the same time as us, so there was no need to get up at the crack of dawn to get our towels on the sunbeds. The family that own the place made us feel right at home and we spend many an evening chatting away with the barman, discussing everything from the euro to farming goats!
The beach was a drive away and lucky that we got some car hire ordered otherwise it would of been a heck of a walk, the beach was pretty basic and not like the ones you find on the Costa del Sol full of people and sunbeds, its much more relaxed with lots of space for us to spread out.
We visited a few places in Horafakia and the taverns were very nice and the food was cheap too, I think they dont get so many tourists here but they treat you like royalty with excellent manners and very good service in the places we visited.
We are hoping to visit this area again, and will try to book into Aloni suites again.

It is always great to arrive somewhere and find it better than expectations. The creche staff are fantastic and we felt completely confidant in their care of our son. The manager and owners are very helpful. The apartments are simple but adequately equipped and clean and with fantastic sunset views. There are several beaches within 10 min drive all child friendly especially the small Tersanas beach. The Taverna near the apartments (Bahar) is excellent and there are at least 4 others within 10 mins drive. The snack bar at Aloni is also good for daytime/early evening dining and drinking! A great holiday.
We are already thinking of a return trip!!

we booked this through 'simply travel' as wanted to use crèche facilities for our 22 month old. excellent apartment complex with great pool for kids. creche was fantastic, british staff and you could use it for as little or as long as you liked. apartments spotless and quite basic but with great views and we had two large terraces. could have done with a microwave. three minute drive from tersanas and stavros beaches which were blue flag beaches with simple tavernas. Maria's at sunset beach apartments best for food. we could have saved money by booking last minute rather than a few months before.
