“beware the horses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Always stay at the small and friendly studios these were as good as any in the past 15 years.
Only noise the whole fortnight was caused by the English in the next door room they must have been deaf the way they always shouted ,mother and daughter, horrendous.
Alakanas is a lovely resort to get away from it all clear shallow sea and lovely beach.
If you decide to use the horse and carrage get a price first........ they are a rip-off.

Room Tip: go for the ground floor

as some one that has stayed in greece often ,this is tipical of accomadation in this price bracket... what is not is how clean it is (spotless), wonderful gardens, friendly owners. you will be staying on a working farm were the tourism is secondary so creates a very relaxing enviroment were the modern world and its stresses are left behind.
only 2 mins from the beach so who needs a pool ! 5 mins from the main village/shops ect...
many people we spoke to stayed here year after year - what bigger recomendation do you need.
wonderful will stay here again next time i am on zante

My wife and i have just returned from a one week stay at the dragonikos apartments. This was a budget holiday for us and we were expecting ultra basic, but were very pleasantly surprised. The apartments are located in a lovely quiet position just off the road into central Alykanas. Five minutes one way to a beautiful beach, five minutes in the opposite direction into the centre of Alykanas.
Our room was spacious, clean and perfectly comfortable. Kitchen, had fridge freezer toaster kettle, all working fine.
Tons of hot water!....bathroom simple but entirely functional. Lovely shuttered windows with internal curtains good for keeping out Mosquitos.
Balcony with lovely views ....fans and safety deposit boxes available....what more could you want?
We would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Upper rooms seem best

This was our 8th visit to alykanas but the first time at these apartments. They are very basic but the rooms are a good size and very clean. my husband is quite tall and had a problem with the shower, its hand held but really refreshing. The couple who own them dont speak much english but always said hello and tried to make conversation. The area is very quite except for the occaisional moo of the cows in the field next door or the odd rooster in the morning. Its a five minute walk to the beach and about 15mins to the resort centre. I wouldnt hesitate to stay here again it reminds me of the greece we used to visit years ago. some previous reviews state there was no kettle or toaster but there is now.

Room Tip: we had room 6 on the ground floor. very good if you arent very mobile, could still see the sea. my s...

Spent two weeks at Draganikos Apartments. Very clean. Downside two single beds, hardly any covers, provided with a top sheet and cover, no blankets. Had to ask for a blanket. Cooking facilities were just one ring, fridge was very old, shower was a tray in the bathroom with no shower bracket so you had to hold the shower head over yourself. Bathroom floor flooded every morning. Flies, flies, mosquitos every time you left a window open, no flyscreens.
No TV, No Radio, No WiFi - no pool - in the accommadation you could go stir crazy. Had to buy a radio and buy access to Valais Hotel wifi for 35 euros a week. Fans were available at 10 euro a week.
On the plus side Zante was wonderful, blue skies, turquoise seas, loads of things to see but you see it in a week not two. Boat hire in the north was expensive but from Keri Beach really cheap starting at 35 euros a day.
Took my Fishing gear - caught two minnows, wheres all the fish? Fished out!!!
Greek people very friendly and excellent sales people, and based at every stop.
Hire a car if you visit Draganikos - it is remote, beach is nearby but everything else needs transport.

We hired a car from the airport and finding the Draganikos Apartments was a nightmare, Google maps puts it in the wrong place, the Apartments have no sign, you got tro ask in Alykanas till you find someone who knows where the apartments are. Thompsons info was a village name and the apartment name - useless.

Shopping is better from the Spar in Zakynthos or LIDL on the Airport road. Not so far away when you have a car.

Draganikos is obviously for the older generation and many older couples stayed at the same time as us. They liked the quiet and tranquility.
Had some really bad thunderstorms and torrential rain which brought out the flies and mosquitos and I had two huge lumps from bites on my neck. The local supermarket had a selection of creams and anti bite stuff luckily.

Room Tip: Book one of the other Hotels nearby.
