5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I arrived in Alykes like a stupid without any reservation in midlle of season 2011 with a family of a friend . With a pig luck we found 2 rooms in Pothos hotel ,after 3 days we ask the children who ware in Romania to came there because it was wonderful everything . When we left to Tolo because we had reservation we were sorry that we couldn't stay in Pothos anymore .i think that is all to say and I am sorry for my poor English Marian Smadu from Romania and his family and friends.To be written : I was in 32 countries in the world and Alykes is in top 5

Before anyone starts shouting, Yes i have been to Pothos before and have reviewed it twice. I am NOT in anyone's pocket or have received anything for my review. I just say what i see, what i see is too many narrow people who think by making petty complaints that people might listen. Quite simply its basic no frills Greek accommodation, maybe not everything matches but other than a bed, a shower, a clean apartment and a kettle what more do people want i wonder?. The breakfasts are superb, the hospitality great and quite honestly if the worst i had ever been called in my life was sweetheart i shouldn't have to worry. Some people need to get a life or maybe just not go on holiday. Yes i'll go back to Pothos and the sooner the better. You can called me a regular if you like but if i like it why would i go anywhere else. Keep up the good work you people at Pothos. Of course there is noise, mostly dogs and cockerels in the early hours but its Greece what else would you expect. Within minutes of getting there I relax I suggest its a recipe for a stress free holiday

We went to the Pothos for the first time this year and was a bit concerned because of some of the bad reviews. We had an excellent time. The rooms were clean and spacious and equipped as you would expect for Greek studios. Dennis and Dimitris were very friendly and always willing to help. We did request clean towels near the end of our holiday and Dennis helped us straight away. The bar food is good and the prices are reasonable. An excellent place to stay.

Stayed for 1 week from 30th August til 6th September. Wow where do I start? One of the best places that I have stayed at. I really do not know what all the complaints are about.. If you want a 5 star hotel then pay for a 5 star hotel. Everyone at the Pothos are so friendly and always make you feel welcome. Most of the people that stay there have been going for years and they include you like they have known you for ages. Helen, Dimitris and Dennis are amazing and always talk to you and the cocktails and food was lush!
Yes the rooms are basic. You get a bathroom which is like a wet room with a toilet shower and sink and mirror. The kitchen is also basic with a 2 ring hob, a kettle, a fridge, sink and cutlery but who the hell wants a kitchen full of everything you would have at home? I don't plan to be cooking a 5 course meal when on holiday.
The bins are changed nearly every day and the beds are just standard beds (If you want memory foam mattresses pay for a 5 star holiday!) bed sheets are changed about 2-3 times a week which I think is fine as I do not change my bed clothes at home everyday. The balcony is very spacious with a line to hang your towels and enough room to be able to sit and enjoy the sunset over the mountain!
I think there are just to many fussy people in this world. You get what you pay for and you couldn't feel more welcome at the Pothos.
The location is brilliant. A short walk across the salt flats (which hardly smell!) to get to all the restaurants, bars and the beach. Every where in Alykes serves gorgeous food including the Pothos (Your Greek salad was the best!).
The beach is amazing and the sea is so clear we went snorkeling for a full afternoon to see the fish!
Me and my boyfriend hired quad bikes from Dennis in Alykes! We explored the whole island in one day! By far one of the best things we did. Enjoyed every minute.
Defiantly thinking about returning! I would defiantly recommend the Pothos, loved it!
Thanks Helen, Dimitris and Dennis and the rest of the family!

sad to return from pothos, yet again what a great place to holiday, given top floor this year which we were happy with, room was basic as we knew but very clean, bathroom was bigger than last year which was great, kichenette was fine especially with toaster we asked for which makes breakfast a lot easier, the views of the mountains from the top were stunning, no other hotels/apts to spoil view near, as said on previous reviews many times Helen,Dimitris,Dennis were great their commitment to making sure you have the best posible stay was obvious, they work endlessly all day to give the best service to all, pool bar does great quality snacks all day long at reasonable prices, pool itself is always clean with plenty of sunbeds available,inflatables and pool toys are always by the pool for all the kids to use[guests going home must leave as we also did] taken trip on tour train to pigadakia [beautiful setting] the museum also was very interesting with so much history told by guide brenda who was fab[from leicester also]spiros at kakia rahi taverna was very friendly with free wine and sultana;s given away at every chance he had, whole 3 hours was great and well worth the 12 euros each for adults [kids rates available]sad to see a couple of bars have closed down from last year and talking to locals we had met before all inclusive places are not helping as well as the economic crunch, but their are still lots of great places to eat and drink at very good prices our favourite restaurant was called Relax where the qualty of food and the service given was excelent[say hello to liverpool lass meg who is a fab,friendly waitress]sirloin steak was the best in town,enjoy the buca bar on the beach where comfort and relaxed atmosphere is felt all around,and at night time you must try out the Iris bar[just up the road from relax restaurant]tina runs the sports bar with so much passion as does chris [barman,entertainer certainly]quiz on a wednesday night is great as is the mini golf available all day and night, overall we had another great holiday in allkes with its great 4 flag star beaches,and views of zante all around you can only ever dream of,try it for the most relaxed feeling ever even if its only for two weeks, we will again.

Room Tip: top rooms give even more of stuning view all around,

Returned to Pothos apartments July 2012, met up with loads of returnees and once again had a great time. The Pothos family and their guests provide the perfect setting for a fab holiday in a brill resort, just like coming home.
We are already talking about returning next year

Room Tip: the views over the fields to the mountains are best from 1st or 2nd floor
