“Clean and adequate, but too many football shirts for our taste!”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

Arriving to a bar full of football fans watching a Monday night game probably didn't help with our first impressions.
I'm sure many people would love this place - lots of friendly Brits toasting around the pool, then watching soccer or singing karaoke in the bar.
For us, it was a little like purgatory!

Excellant time at The Maria apartments.our accommodations was very clean, cleaners came in every day.Made our beds even washed up our dishes. The staff at the Maria were excellant very friendly and made our holiday. Billy, theo, Alex and Phil were brilliant. we loved our Karaioke evenings and had alot of laughs with all the guys. Food was really good, Alex was the chef, infact Alex could do everything.Yes, there was a good 10 minute walk to town but we were all quite glad of this as it gave us a little and only excercise we had on holiday, and in the evevning when the sun was down it was a lovely walk.we found the resort for meals very cheap, family of 3 having starters and main coarses, 1 litre of local wine and 1 soft drink averaged about 35-40 euro's, which compared to spain last year was costing us 70 euro's for the same.Drinks could be dear but if you stick to their local beer, Mythos or Amstel it was ok.would definately reccommend your holiday here, the lads were BRILLIANT.
We strongly recommend that you book the TOUR TRAIN IN Alykes, we did this and it was fab only wished we had done it sooner as you get to see around the area and the price included wine too and we all got at least 4 glasses of the wine, would recommend you do the evening one tho for their greek nite.price- adults12.50 euro's kids- 5-12 5.50 euro's, kids under 4 free.for the greek night it is 20 euro's for an adult and 10 for child, includes your food and wine, when the free wine stops it's only 1.50 euro a litre after that.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms which had recently been refurbished, air con a must in the summer which cost us 80...

Arrived to be told the previous people were still sleeping in our room, so we had to be found a new one. Balcony looked out onto the side of the house, so no view at all. The drain in the bathroom floor was blocked so using the taps and shower caused water to come back up and flood the place. Drain water in 38 degree heat stinks. Towels were stained orange from other peoples fake tan. As other people have said, take ear plugs. You don't sleep until the last person in the bar does! This can be 4am on transfer days.
Long walk to the beach and restaurants. In general though a lovely little resort with good restaurants and beautiful beach. Worth a visit, but stay somewhere else.

we have just returned from maria apartments, we all had a fantastic holiday thanks to Alex, theo, phill, and billy what a great bunch of guys. our accomadation was fantastic and should be more than 2 star, rooms cleaned daily clean towels daily pool area spotless, bar area was big and open planned so you could chat to everyone, food in the bar was great. It was about a 15 min walk to town with other great resturants to eat in or bars if you just want drinks one in particular was spikey's bar great cocktails and great patter. Maria apartments is also a very safe and trouble free place to go, our kids had lots of freedom and we didnt have to worry. We met lots of great friends on our holiday and cant wait to go back we would highly recommend maria apartments and Alykes for a great relaxing holiday. James. Tracy, Ryan, Sophi and Kaitlin

OK so the accomodation is rated 2 star but it was clean and the maids were great. Forget the location being a 15 minute walk to the sea front and main street because all the best action is at these appartments. Billy, Theo, Phil and Alex are superb. They make this place 5 star. Alex works 27 hours a day and never stops laughing,Billy is the poser, Theo is the top bar man and Phil is the best dancer. Karaoke nights and quiz nights were funny.
Me and the wife had a great time here.
Bad points were that the balconies for 13,14,16 and 17 are crap, you can't swing a cat and there's plenty of cats about to prove this!!! We were in room 17 next to a wasps nest in the roof space of the appt. below. Air con is 40 Euros a week and the safe is 25 euros a week and is next to the entrance door.Tip....buy a fan for 25 euros and sell it on after your stay...we did...
We would reccomend this hotel but Alykes is too quiet for us.

We have just returned from 1 week at the Maria hotel. This is basic greek accomadation at it's best. The rooms are cleaned daily and sheets changed twice a week. Our towels were changed almost every other day. The staff are all very friendly and the bar food is well cooked. The walk into town is a 15 min walk all on the flat, just right for walking off all that lovely Greek food on an evening. Our favourite taverna was Fidelio. The only down side was that you are charged 40 Euros per week for air con and 20 Euros for a safe deposit, so that's 120 Euros if you are there for 2 weeks. Having been to Kefalonia earlier in the year where both these facilities were free, we were a bit shocked at this add on.

What a great holiday we had at the Maria, It was our first time in Zante and Theo, Billy and the forever hard working Aex really made us very welcome. The apartments were immaculate, the pool and pool area was very clean, We had some fun nights in the bar and met some good friends, the food was good and reasonably priced. When we next holiday in Zante it will definately be at the Maria. Thanks again Theo, Billy & Alex, Yammas. Chelsea Roy & Sally
