Loved where the hotel is and has a really lovely pool, lovley resort. I went expecting basic but also expected to have hot water and a clean room. I had to clean the room myself. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for.

just back from 2 weeks at the letsos hotel, at check in the first words from the english receptionist were do you want air conditioning we said we would like a night to consider but were told that was not possible as we had to decide straightaway stupidly we were talked into having it at 100 euros, we were directed to our room in the annexe which we knew we were staying in and having stayed in annexes before we weren't concerned, but signs on the walls saying if you are if the annexe and want to move to the main hotel just ask did perturb us and rightly so as when we opened the door we were horrified a cramped, dirty smelly room with a rust covered fridge not even a kettle and a tiny bathroom with the toilet cistern hanging off there was no way you could spend a fortnights holiday in that room, so straight back to reception where she was not suprised to see us, we were told it was no problem to move but there would be a charge and we would have to rent a kettle if we wanted one ! the owner wasnt avaliable for an hour so we had to wait , the " friendly " receptionist said it's not good to upset him he gets quite cross, when he appeared he wouldn't speak any english, the best deal we got out of him was 170 euros and a kettle for the 2 weeks although we weren't happy at all there was no way we were staying in the hovel so accepted,it was evident the receptionist was his side kick, we had to beg for an extra towel to use as a bath mat as there was only 1 towel each and they were only changed once a week as were the sheets we seemed to itch a lot, we spent no leisure time there as didn't feel comfortable, we wanted a taxi to another resort there was a sign in recption saying they could book it for us we grudgingly had to do this and were told to wait 5 minutes then were totally shocked to see the grumpy owner waiting outside in what was his own car we had no choice but to get in and had a nervy ride with him on the phone the whole time and worse still he charged 25 euros and tried to con a 5 euro tip out of us we later found out from a friendly taxi driver home that it should only be 18 euros, a previous review calling him basil fawlty sums him up so well. we met so many people greek and english that had nothing good to say about the letsos, we didn't let it spoil our holiday as alikanas is a fantastic resort but warn anyone thinking about booking the letsos

we have just returned from our holiday to Zante... we were quite apprehensive after all the bad reviews we read beforehand but when we got there it wasn't has bad as we thought it was basic Greek self catering I think some people moan just for the sake of it....we stayed for a week and had the sheets changed once and the towels three times the area was fantastic with lovely restaurants and bars my only complaint is the week went to fast

Having just returned after 2 weeks, i thought it necessary to leave comments on the Letsos Hotel.
We arrived at 6:00 am to be greeted by a grumpy ignorant old man. Fist words were "do you want air conditioning as very hot" good price, very good price 100 euros for the two weeks, we said we will think about it, to be told no you have to take it now. After a few mins he said 85 euros, we did take it eventually. He then tried to get us to have a safety deposit box, which we declined.
We then arrived at our room 313, to find a disgusting bathroom. Taps in sink were disgusting, shower had mould growing up the wall, electric wire hanging above the shower, and a huge crack in the shower cubicle door, not a small crack but from top to bottom, thank goodness we were not travelling with children. We also found a large piece of broken glass on the floor, luckily we found this before we stepped on it.Doors to the balcony did not lock, so we again went to reception where they sent handyman up to our room, and he said there was nothing wrong with them. Very odd, but we could not lock them We then found that we had no kettle or cups. We went to reception, and was told that we could have a kettle at a "good price" of 5 euros per week, but the cups were free. Over the course of the two weeks we had 1 towel change and 1 bed change, the bedding and towels supposed to have been white, but low and behold they were grey. Also lights in the corridors were non existent, like walking through the black hole of Calcutta!!!!!! Having been to Alykanas on three previous vacations, we have never had reason to complain, We all know that rooms in Greece are basic, but we do expect cleanliness.
Wont be going back to the Letsos under any circumstances.... pity because the front view of the hotel is excellent.......... pity about the inside!!!!!!!!!!!!.

We have just returned from a two week holiday in Alikanas, Zakynthos. We had a nice time; lots of relaxing but not much resting, largely due to the noisy location of the accommodation. Alikanas is a small holiday village, with a beautiful sandy beach, a gorgeous shallow bay ideal for the less confident swimmer and breathtaking scenery and enough to do away from the beach.
We actually thought at the time of booking that we had done quite well for a last minute cheapie. The hotel looked lovely on the internet (marketing genius somewhere behind the scenes obviously). When we arrived, we were impressed by the aspect of the main hotel with a bright airy reception and nice looking facilities.
However, our initial good impression lasted literally seconds as the grumpy hotel owner (reminiscent of Basil Fawlty) kept us waiting, after we’d been travelling all day, while he chatted to various mates. He also immediately tried to sell us extras such as air conditioning (which he admitted didn’t work but he had a crack team of expert Greek mechanics working on the problem!) Eventually, we got checked in and a man of very small stature grabbed my suitcase and led us at break-neck speed out of the main hotel building, across the road and into the annex building. It was obvious to us that the annex pre-dated the hotel by about four decades and the lovely picture on the hotel website belied the fact that it presented a very stark exterior, fronting onto THE main road of the island, with traffic almost constantly whizzing past between Alykes and Zante Town.
And as for the inside...let me just say upfront for those of you who think I am being picky, that I am well used to basic 2 star Greek studios, having stayed in them about a dozen times. I am even used to different standards of cleanliness, sometimes just because the owners don’t really know what us first world tourists expect, but the general dirtiness and tatiness of this particular gem took the biscuit, and it was obvious from our encounter with Basil that he didn’t give a monkeys.

I have recently stayed at the Letsos hotel in alykanas Zante. I would like to say that the only decent part of this hotel was the beds. On entry to the room, it was full of mosquitoes so please do take precautions with you and definitely take bug spray with you. Throughout the duration of my 2 week stay, I only had one change of sheets and towels. The Bin in the bathroom was not emptied daily and the lack of toilet roll was diabolical. The pool area very clean but as for returning to these apartments I would not under no circumstances return and I would not recommend these rooms to any body.

We stayed at the Letsos hotel in Aug 2013, on a self catering basis but were disappointed with the lack of provisions to do so. Small things, a working fridge would have been nice,a kettle ? A bread knife. A clean kitchen area, we know we were in grease as it was obvious from the state of the cooking/ food prep area ! Small greasy hand impressions on the surfaces,windows from the previous occupants. Just required the cleaner/maid to spend an extra 5 mins in the room between customers and it would have been lovely, oh and not to use the same cloth to clean the rooms,glass tends to smear.
I did mention all these problems to reception to take on board as the family that run the hotel are lovely and I did get a brand new fridge after two days !
It is their staff that are letting the hotel down !
Over all a good holiday here and would return if the above moans were rectified, they love it when you try to speak in Greek.
