“Lovely apartments right on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

We had a week in a studio apartment right at the start of the season in early May. The room was clean, big enough and had basic cooking facilities and fridge. The bathroom was fine, but shower a little basic. Rooms are cleaned and serviced every day with linen and towels.

There is no pool or bar, but guests can use the neighbouring Paradise free of charge - nice pool with plenty of sunbeds and friendly bar.

The beach is just a few metres away and the views lovely. There are a couple of restaurants nearby or a 10-15 minutes walk away there is a bigger choice in the village, which isn't too busy or touristy but has facilities such as car hire and trip agencies.

The price was very reasonable and we would happily go back.

Room Tip: Sea view is nice, but no afternoon sun - need mountain view if you want that.

Booked a studio room no.6 Had a wonderful view.
Breakfasted looking over the sea wonderful !
Had room cleaned to high standard,fresh towels and linen provided.
Had an evening flight back to UK no problem leaving baggage in reception,toilet facility's there as well.
We met the friendliest people we have ever met in Alykes.Food was a lot cheaper than at home.Plus wonderful local wine.A carafe costs 6 euros.
As others have said don't miss the Little train trips,daytime and evening.

We stayed here in May 2013. Very clean, self catering apartments with beautiful views across turquoise waters to Kefalonia and just a few seconds walk to the beach, were the sea is warm and shallow, With use of the pool bar next door and a super market a short walk away, this is an ideal base from where to explore the rest of Alykes, We loved it here and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: We had room 15, and the view was beautiful

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Sea View for 1 week in september and we had the holiday of a life time. The hotel was lovely and the views were unreal. We especially loved the little wooden walkway that took you right from the hotel grounds and into the water!

We spent a lot of time down at the Paradise Apartments, the pool was lovely and we felt really welcome although we weren't staying there. The Paradise bar was great and the food was really nice too.

We hired a quad bike 3 days out of the 7 and took it right round the whole island, I would highly recommend this as we never got lost and the buses took hours to get anywhere. The quad was 10 euros for the day from Dennis Rentals on the main road in Alykes, you can also pay extra to put fuel in at his shop too. Our quad bike adventures were definitely the highlight of our holiday, we took the costal road one day and we found so many stunning hidden beaches (xgia beach is a must see and has natural collagen springs)

We took a boat round to the shipwreck and it was such a lovely trip, I would try and go early or as it gets quite crowded, luckily we were last there so we got the whole beach to ourselves for a while after the other boats left.

Highly recommend the turtle trip and keri caves too!

I didn't expect it to be so hot in september but the weather was amazing although nearer the end of our holiday we had a storm that caused a power cut for a few hours. (Apparently quite common at that time of year!

Lastly, All I can say is you will absolutely love this place if you are the adventurous type who doesn't laze by a pool the whole holiday. There is SO much to see and do and I will definitely go back in the future.

Enjoy!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in a huge room looking right over the sea, it was either number 1 or 2. The only negative...

the only place to be if you like a quiet relaxed location close to safe swimming with nice gardens to relax in the sun

fabulous apartments and studios - tastefully decorated and very well mainatined - clean , tidy with an abundant change of linen and towels and very fine private balconies

the owners and staff are unobtrusive but there when you need them - open and friendly

beautiful views over to Kefalonia and to Greece

although at the edge of the village - supermarkets , bus stops , car rentals and restuarants are only a short and pleasant walk

in all - the only place to be

Room Tip: if you like the sea - go for a studio

My wife and I have just returned from our first visit to Zante, and it won't be our last. We stayed at the Seaview apartments, which are top notch. The views from our balcony were stunning from sunset to dusk. Apartments are kept spotless by two very pleasant and hard working cleaners, one of whom doubles up as a horse and carriage taxi driver at night.
Staff were really pleasant and helpful as well, and the cat that belongs to the apartments is such a friendly wee thing. Only downside, and it's not a slight on the apartment owners, but perhaps something that Thomas Cook could look into in the future,is that there is no courtesy room for people to get freshened up in if their flight is late afternoon or early morning. Didn't really bother my wife and I, but it may possibly affect people with children.
A must do trip is on wee Spiro's Trianaki well worth the 12 euro's, and the free wine tasting that's included is even better....we enjoyed this so much that we went on it again to the Greek night Spiro's does at the weekend's, another value for money trip.

We were in Alykes first two weeks in August first impressions as you walk up to the Sea view Hotel are impressive but not as impressive as when you open your balcony doors views are Fabulous over the sea and beyond , sea view has lovely gardens with free sunbeds you could nearly always get a bed .(if the sunbed mafia hadn't got there first , ha ha ) a little boardwalk helps you miss the pebbles to get into the lovely warm sea which is very safe even for the youngest kids . The rooms are cleaned 6 days a week the cleaners are very friendly and will come back later if your still in when they come . Some people complain you don't see the owners AND ?? They are always there somewhere just might not be in the office !! The apartments at the front have the best views but the ones on the side get the sun in the afternoons and also have. Brilliant views they all have patio doors which you can leave open as they also have fly door things (forgot what they are called) that you can close as well as shutters when shut make the room really dark so you get a good nights sleep air conditioning is 5 euros a day and safe is 10 euros a week .The resident grey cat is very friendly please feed !!!! Alykes is a great resort you can eat in a different restaurant every night and I can honestly say I never had a bad meal in any of them . The Apollo taverna is the nearest the food and staff are both brilliant . Special shout out to the Apollo pool bar so chilled out at lunch time dead friendly and cheap for lunch , also the Parsdise is great just a bit more noisey . You have to get the little train really brilliant trip if you get a good crowd on the food at the taverna for lunch is beautiful you have to pay for it but well worth it THE WINE IS FREE AND CANNY STRONG !! Remember to wave and everyone will wave back and I mean Everyone from people picking grapes to wagon drivers really good laugh! All the bars are really chilled as expected in Greece some lovely ones on the Beach see the white double beds in one, just a short 15 min walk you will be in Alykinas some bigger shops and watersports then get a horse and carrage back about 10 euro watch out for your cleaner he's the best ! For treats go to the supermarket bakery everything pure lush !! On the way home got to the Virago bar very friendly careful of cocktails strong . The little supermarket next door is really good for bit and bobs ESSPECIALLY water cos its not far to carry . The only problem with this place is you meet really lovely people you have to leave them also some of them lend you bikes still saddle sore now p&g love you all . Will definitely go back oneday loved it so will you !!!!
