Our honeymoon hotel. Our first visit to Zante. A family run hotel. Very pleasant people. Good advice given on the various trips that were available. Good breakfasts! Average accommodation. Lovely pool. Good shop combined with hotel and run by the hotel family members.

Late August 2013, for the first time in years I fancied a trip away without my children (who went on their own holidays with their respective friends). I chose Alykanas as I have a friend who was working there. When I arrived at 7.30am I was met by Denis who apologised that my room was not ready yet and gave... More

Dont know where the most recent reviewers were staying but i certainly would not give the Elpida a 5 or even a 4 rating. We stayed for 7 days. We chose to pay for Air-conditioning, and were shocked to discover that the cost was 50 euro. It was a hot week so we paid up but the air-con unit had... More

Finally got around to saying thanks to Spiros and his lovely family, for yet another great stay at the hotel, 17 days this time. If you’re looking for a good base to stay in Zante, the Elpida in Alykanas is the place for you. The rooms are always clean and tidy, with hot showers. The bar is great with a... More

We returned yesterday from our 1 week stay at the Elpida. It was our first overseas holiday since having our now 16mth old son and my mother & her partner also came with us. We had a lovely relaxing week and were very happy with our accommodation. Whilst the rooms are basic they are well furnished, clean and comfortable. We... More

Ignore any bad reviews about this hotel. Rooms are basic but very very clean. The shower is amusing, you have to hold it while you shower but anyone who has been to Greece before should expect this. Take toilet roll and soap with you. The pool area is lovely, loads of sunbeds and parasols, the pool bar is fantastic! Spiros... More

I have been comming here for at least 16 years, and as always had the most wonderful time (August 2013). The incredible family who run the Elpida, treat everyone with the greatest of respect, friendliness, care and will help in ANY way they can. This is the most friendly, relaxing place to stay. You always meet lovely people staying at... More

We love Greece and have stayed in many Greek resorts and I have to say that this one has everything we needed. There was always somewhere to walk to! We would get up each morning eat our cornflakes, spend an hour by the pool until beer o'clock and then walk the long way to the beach ( 20 mins), past... More
