“dirty dirty dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

We stayed at the Akis in September, first impressions good nice pool area and pretty gardens, it stopped there, the studio was dirty and smelly, we asked the rep to get it cleaned which in a fasion it was, the towels were grey as were the sheets, the smell was the bathroom mat which was growning things. We then went to use the shower cold water, went to the bar and was told there was hot water, this went on for three days till I saw the rep again who said we were the only people to complain about no hot water. I then asked people around the pool and either side of our studio and they all said there was no hot water, the rep then said they would get some in to sort the boiler out, when we left two weeks later still no hot water. The people who run this place should go on a course for customer service. We love Alykes and have stayed here many times but never again at the Akis.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We stayed at the Akis for a week in the third week of September, the weather was very hot and mozzies were on the rampage, Alykes is a pleasant resort with a wide choice of tavernas and a few bars. The beach is very long and the sea is shallow for a good way out so safe for all. Our apartment, the pool and bar are all a good size and in a nice condition. I found the staff very lazy and they only spoke if you asked them something, the bar snacks are basic ok, I had a nice tuna salad one day and a frozen chip sarny another. Our room was not dirty on arrival but I wouldnt say it was clean, our two towels were thread bare and torn and we had a grubby floor mat on the bathroom floor. We had our bins emptied 5 days out of 7 but I dont think we had it cleaned once. Two cleaners came in our room while we were around the pool and they made so much a noise I looked up to find them on our balcony calling across to another cleaner in a nearby apartment block. I watched them open and shut our curtains four times giggling all the time, they were making me paranoid. I waited a while for the floors to dry and went in our room to make a drink and check on my belongings only to see that the so called cleaners had only emptied the bins in all that time and left the sheets and towels dirty in a pile, no cleaning done so what were they doing? These studios should have been peaceful but among other loud noises our fridge was so loud it kept us awake. Going home we were dropped off early at the airport only to still be there 7 hours later, young and old sitting on the floor for hours because of Greek strikes.

Stayed here last 2 weeks in August. Clean and tidy. Towels/sheets changed twice a week, bins emptied daily. Could do with microwave or sometype of oven, as only had a kettle and 2 electric rings. Glad we took our own toaster. We also took quite a lot of food with us which we were glad of as some of the supermarket prices were ridiculous! Pool area clean and tidy at all times, but slippery when wet. Staff polite but did'nt speak much. A/c we thought was expensive at 40 euros a week and if like us you have 2 rooms 160 euros is a lot of money. Situated next to the salt flats, but to the back of the complex you get a nice view of mountain/hill scenery. 10 minutes walk to the beach if you go through the salt flat. Overall a pleasant stay!
