“Best Greek Holiday in 20 Years”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Where to start? The best service I have ever experienced on any Greek island.

Jimmy, Soula, Chrissi, Ekaterina, Yiorgi and Theodore treated us like old friends from arrival. Faultless service and THE best customer care you could hope for. My wife had unfortunately lost her wedding/engagement rings just before we arrived and Jimmy took the trouble to take us into Zante Town and introduce us to the best jeweller so we could replace the lost wedding ring. We felt like royalty.

Lovely complex, fantastic quiet spot, top pool and very good food - we even got Soula's recipe for Frigania!

Alykes & Katastari were the perfect places for us to unwind. Great beach, super food and friendly welcoming service everywhere. Do visit Spiro's on the train tour too. Simply beautiful.

We made the effort to see as much of the island and experience Zakynthian culture and were never disappointed. A real jewel.

We went on holiday and made lovely new friends.

To Jimmy & family - Sas efkharisto yia ton kopo sas.

We wish you all health, success and happiness - you're the best.

Stay at the Alykes Garden village last week in may first week in june had a fantastic holiday. went with my husband, daughter son-in-law and grandchildren. Rooms very spacious well equipped and spotlessly clean. Pool area clean and well maintained. Jimmy and his family are really lovely and will go out of there way for you. The beach and restaurants are about 10 minutes walk away. The beach was nice and the restaurants very good had some lovely meals, our favourites being Pavadosiako which was down near the canal ( best cheesecake ever ) second best was Relax but most of them were nice.Will definitely go back.

My husband and I stayed at garden village for 15 nights. We were met by Jimmy on arrival and offered a choice of 2 rooms, which is very unusual. Unfortunately, I chose a room that had a balcony that had full evening sun, which meant that we couldn't sit on it for our evening sundowner! This was no problem for Jimmy who, the following day, showed us 3 more rooms and we chose a lovely room that had a very large balcony, overlooking olive groves and farmland. We enjoyed watching and listening to the goats, cockrell's, chickens, cows, sheep and even peacocks! The apartments, gardens and pool area were all looked after very well and were spotlessly clean. We had maid service every day and the sheets and towels were changed regularly. Jimmy and his sister Soula knew all the guests by name and made sure that they chatted to everyone regularly. There were no favourites, unlike other apartments we have stayed at where the owners were only friendly with those who spent lots of money in the bar. The walk to the local village (Kalastari) and Alykes only took 10 minutes. We were able to buy water in Jimmy's little shop and he also sold his own fresh eggs! A fabulous holiday and we hope to return next year.

Room Tip: Make sure you check where the sun sets so that you can chose whether you have morning or evening sun

I stayed in Alykes garden village many years ago and the level of service and friendliness hasn't changed. Nothing is too much trouble for Jimmy and his wonderful family and the friendly welcome is worth the trip alone. The complex looks great and has wonderful views of the mountains and is only a short walk (about 10 minutes from the town). This year was the first holiday with our young child and he loved the baby pool and the great beach at Alykes. The town is full of good restaurants and places to go in the evenings - there is a reason that many of the people you meet have returned year after year. The town was quiet at the time we went but as we were after a nice relaxing holiday, this was perfect for us. Try the Pizzas at Jimmy's pool bar, perfect at lunch with a Mythos...

Just got back from a lovely week in Alykes. Our self-catering apartment was clean, spacious and had everything we needed.

The pool is lovely with plenty of sun loungers and parasols for everyone. The pool bar serves fresh, tasty food and drinks with Oscar's Bar serves drinks at night, as well as a weekly BBQ.

Jimmy and his family couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Offering advice on local amenities and lending me a hair-dryer I'd forgotten!

The beach, restaurants and shops are a 10-15 walk away. The beach is lovely, clean sand, plenty of sun loungers and beautiful clear water. You can walk out really far before it gets any deeper, which was great as it was our first holiday with our 8 month old baby.

I can highly recommend the Asteria restaurant, on the beach. The food and service were brilliant, with a view of the beach too.

Would recommend for families, couples and anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

What a fantastic place - having seen all the others hotels that people were dropped at on our journey from the airport Alykes Garden Village was by far the best looking. Our apartment was clean and spacious with a view of the garden and pool. Jimmy and his family couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, arranging our car hire, boat trip and giving general advice. Town and a lovely beach just a short walk down the road. Can't recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: It appeared that all rooms looked out over the garden and pool with balconies.

lWe spent 10 wonderful days at Alykes Garden Village, we arrived on the first day of the
season and little did we know what a memorable holiday we were about to have. It was the
Greek Orthodox Easter and we were included in the celebrations and the hospitality was
amazing! Jimmy and his family were so friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble.
The complex is very clean, well equiped and very peaceful the perfect place for a relaxing
holiday, would recommend to anyone , can't wait to go back. We would also highly recommend
Relax restaurant situated at the crossroads in the village,very good food,excellent service
from George and his brother,we were very surprised at the reasonable price!
