Zakynthos may well be the friendliest place we've stayed in Greece, and Eleni could be its spirit in person. Along with the Deep Blue Sea in Georgioupolis, the Roulla is the accommodation we love most. Eleni is amazingly welcoming and unfailingly helpful and generous, and our stay was a delight. Full marks to everyone at the Roulla for looking after us. We'll certainly be back.

We were welcomed to Roulla Apartments by Eleni (a lovely, helpful lady - with many people returning year on year because of her friendly nature). The apartments are situated 300m from the beach in Alykes, Zante (a walk across the salt flats or round them to get to the main street/beach). A totally relaxing place with only a 25 min transfer from the airport as we were taken direct to resort. The apartments are spacious and clean, the bathroom shower takes a bit of getting used to as it would seem (having compared our own apartment with others) that all apartment showers are literally a shower tray in a corner with no shower curtain and you have to hold the shower head over yourself to wash. Whilst it sounds like hard work you actually do get used to it but the floor of the bathroom does become slippery when wet!!! You also only seem to get the one toilet roll so need to buy more (or take extra with you).

Alykes has a lovely sandy beach with sunbeds and parasol available to hire (2 beds and parasol were 5 euros a day). The sea is clear blue and quite warm, you walk out quite a way before you get up to waist height - a great beach for old and young, swimmers and non-swimmers alike.

We took the bus one day in to Zakynthos Town - be warned we got on the 1030 bus which arrived in Town @ approx 1105 and the only buses returning back to Alykes were at noon or 5pm - so either a 55 minute or 6 hour visit!!! Times are different at different times of year so be warned !!! The cost of a single ticket on the bus was 1 euro 70 cents - so not too bad.

Back to Alykes and we found Maestro, a lovely eating place located on the main road in resort. Food was absolutely first class with quite a varied menu and good prices, staff were very polite and helpful too.

All in all Alykes is a great place for a totally relaxing holiday and Roulla Apartments are a good base whilst in Alykes.

Happy holidays .......................

This was the first time in Zante for me and i am glad i got to stay at the roulla apartments ,Eleni makes you feel very welcome and i am sure if you asked she would help you with anything , Eleni gave us a bottle of wine a fews day into our stay which was nice ,the rooms are basic but clean as is to be expected in Greece at this price point some might find the shower a bit of getting use to as they have no shower curtains,and the bed is on the very firm side.
The apartments are located about 5-10 mins(depending on fitness) from main resort on flat paths. Alykes resort has a good selection of taverna,s to suit most tastes ,you also hire cars/bike in resort for little money ,trips and excursions can also be booked from here ,the beach is soft sand and the waters are safe for children ,i would stay again if in Zante as many people choose to stay year after year so it tells you something !

Amazing family run apartments Eleni and her family are great hosts. The apartments are cleaned daily and linen is changed frequently nothing is too much trouble for Eleni to make your stay with them a happy one. Most of the guests have been returning here yearly so that in itself should tell you what a great place it is. We have already booked our return for next year so we can once again enjoy spending time in Alykes with friends we have made in the great bars and restaurants and enjoying the pool and surrounding views of the mountains. Elenis own wine was very good this year too and we shared a few bottles by the pool.

Room Tip: studios are not equipt with tables and chairs in the kitchen areas so apartments give you more space...

Although we were delayed by the airline Eleni was waiting for us to arrive as usual.
Hospitality and room clenliness up to the high standards we have become accustomed too over the years we have been stopping here.
Met up with several families whose company we have enjoyed previously as well as meeting some new to Roulla. As normal the pool became the noisy fun place where everbody joined in whatever was happening during the day. Local supernmarket provided fresh croissants for breakfast and rolls or bread for lunch. The nearby reasurants provided there normal selection of Greek and International fayre, excellent quality at a reasonable price.
Already thinking of booking here for 2014

Room Tip: This is a very popular resort with many families returning every year. Book Early.
