The apartment was clean and equipped to the the Greek standard. Bedding and towels not changed once, but that's Thomas Cook's fault, not the owners. Lovely location right next to the beach - lovely walking into Alikes centre along the beach, it was almost romantic! Boat ride - we were absolutely GREEN when we got back. To say the sea was choppy was an understatement, we should never have been taken around the headland at all. Beware the taverna "coffee stop" on the way back. 5 euro for 2 coffees!

I have stayed at the Paradise Apartments twice before and am returning this summer. It is the kind of place that I am always happy to return to. I would say it appeals to all ages as myself, my mum and my nan are all regular visitors.

The rooms are exactly what you expect on a holiday to Greece really. The studios are very nice and well-maintained, and on my first visit we actually stayed in a two bedroom apartment with a huge balcony and beautiful views of the sea.

The pool is lovely and its proximity to the beach actually gives you the impression of being in an infinity pool. We didn't really use the bar much but the staff all seemed very friendly.
The beach is close and the waters are generally calm and inviting!

Alykes town is a short walk away with some lovely restaurants, The Apollo and Ambrosia are two which stick in my memory as being particularly excellent. I highly recommend playing mini-golf (a short walk from the centre of the main street, it's set in the gardens of a lovely English bar with friendly staff).

For me this is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday where you don't have a load of noise and you can just enjoy the views and the culture. I'm looking forward to returning this summer!

lovley, me and my partner stayed here for one week for my 21st birthday. love it wish i was back there now zante is gorgeous you must do the boat ride to the ship wreak, paradise appartments are great if you are looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing but not to far from shops bars and food. the staff are so friendly and welcoming, im never arrived somewhere and been welcomed off the coach. thomas cook were brilliant as always. we show dolphins on the boat trip, had a brilliant thunder storm on our last night amazing to watch of the neighbouring greek islands. and i dont wanna scare you but i experianced my first earth quake at 3 in the morning it wasnt scary and i didnt feel it on heard it. but great story to tell everyone. they have about 3 quakes a week some you dont even feel. anyway hope you found this helpfully and you have a great holiday as i no i did. :)

Gorgeous location, literally 2 steps from the poolside onto the gorgeous beach. the pool bar staff are great. theres a barbeque and quiz on a tesday which is excellent value for money. self catering facilities very basic.. no toaster, grill, micro etc. However we eat out on holiday so thatdidnt bother us much,

however they did not provide a change of towel all holiday even although we left them in the linen basket that they provided and left it in the middle of the bed as a subtle hint.

Apart from that couldnt fault it.

We stayed at the Paradise in a ground floor studio. They were a fair size and very clean as they were cleaned daily with fresh linen. The guy who runs the pool bar must be operating a no profit policy. We only drank there three nights and each evening we got a free glass of wine each and a bag of crisps to munch on. During the day when watching the world cup he was giving me free pints. Wonderful hosts. We are staying just up the road at the Sea View next year but will definitely pop in to the pool bar. Alykes is lovely

We stopped in the two bedroom apartment both bedrooms were onsuite and opened up to a large balcony with table & chairs overlooking the bay. The kitchen was very basic with not many utensils but it had a large fridge with a small freezer section.The apartment itself was clean but the linen or towels were not changed all week which appears to be the norm in greece. The other studios looked like they had a refurb new doors etc maybe they will do up the two bed next. Please be advised there is no hairdyryer take your own.
The pool bar was reasonably priced for snacks and drinks and the staff very friendly.
The location was great ,quiet and 3 metres from the sea although pebbly and not enough beach left to put a sunbed on but the pool had plenty so no worries.
Having gone to Alykes before the restaurants we visited were Asteria Hote,l Astoria Hotel Ambrosia, Relax ,Paradosiako and the Appolo wich in our opinion was the best food . Meals cost approx 10euros for main meal and half litre of wine each.
The holiday wasa that good we have already booked for June 2011
