“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

My partner and I have been going to Alykes for the last few years but never until now have we been lucky enough to secure a stay at Beach house 2! We stayed in number 10 and we can not fault the apartments at all, it had everything we needed for a self catering holiday. Beach house 1 & 2 are in a perfect location and waking up and hearing the sea is amazing. We have always used the owners bar (Viragos) which do the most amazing cocktails! Black cat is our favourite! I would also like to add the owners Spiros and Vicky are lovely people and take deep pride in their bar and apartments. So I would agree with DawnandDave_2 with regard to Simons review! You just cant please some people. As for us , we cant wait till May to go back again.Keep doing what your doing Spiros & Vicky, and see you in May 2014. Sarah & Paul

we stayed in beach house 1 for 2 weeks from 26th sept 2013,no problems with accomodation and owners.On our departure we were out of the apartment at 11.00 as it was being prepared for the next guests,our pick up was at 1430 so we put our suitcases down at the bar which is not open until 1600 and went for a coffee about 5 minutes away, on our return both padlocks had been ripped from our suitcases and 10 packets of tobacco stolen.Just a word of warning.

We are pleased to hear you had such an enjoyable stay with us but are very saddened and shocked to hear that your bags were tampered with when left unattended. Guests can leave their luggage at Vasso (owner of BHI)'s house if they have any concerns.

After reading Simon S' s review we are amazed at how someone can be so critical in just a few hours of arriving.
We too return to Alykes year after year twice a year and have been doing so for the last 10 years because we luv it soooooooo! much. We have stayed in Beach House 1 and 2 for the last 5 years and have always found the studios very clean and tidy with regular change of bed linen and towels.
Over the last couple of years improvements have been made air con in Beach House 1 and a new pitched roof. We stayed in Beach House 2 in September in the spacious family appartment which had been decorated and also had new furniture put in since we stayed in it last which was 2 years ago and to be honest there was nothing wrong with it then.
You will always receive a very warm welcome from the owners Vikki and Spiros. Nothing is too much for their guests on our recent stay Spiros kindly drove a member of our family to the nearest open pharmacy for medication. Vikki and Spiros are two of the most friendly and caring hosts you could possibly want who go out of their way to ensure their guests have an enjoyable holiday.
We have also booked again for next year as availability is very limited if you dont book a year in advance.
So we are so sorry that Simon feels this way perhaps he should just stick to 5 star hotels when backpacking in India.

We stay in the beach house every time we visit Zante. It is immaculately clean with good friendly cleaners who are alway on hand if needed as are the owners who are 2 of the most lovely people we have ever met. We would recommend staying in here to anyone weather be families or couples like ourselves. Great hosts with a fantastic bar and even better cocktails!! With ice cream sundaes to die for!! Small family run establishment that is very friendly and professional at the same time. We will be going back for many years to come. And we plan to get married in Alykes and will be definitely staying in the beach house! Get yourself booked in! You won't be disappointed!!

We first stayed in Beach House 1 in 1997 and have returned regularly almost every year since then! We book as soon as the rooms become available in order to enjoy the next years holiday! We manage to book for three weeks each time - would we book somewhere less than excellent for such a long stay? NO!! The reasons we stay are varied... superb, quiet location, top quality accommodation for a simple chill out time, pleasant and very helpful owners, and friendly greek people. The rooms are cleaned regularly, as other reviewers have said, with a regular change of towels, and extremely thorough cleaning by Vasso and her team. Over the past years any problems we have encountered have been sorted out very quickly. We see the same people return every year, again over many years! So... a great big THANK YOU for all those people who make our stay so wonderful year after year! See you all next September.. We can't wait!

Having been to Alykes for the past six years, we were delighted when we were able to secure a booking for Beach House in September, having previously stayed in other properties. Yes, we would have loved to have stayed in Beach House 1 but were content with Beach House 2. In no way were we disappointed! We were in room 13, at the same time as the previous disgruntled reviewer, and do not share his view of these studios. Our personal standards are high and we were very satisfied with the standard of accommodation. Rooms were cleaned regularly, by a
delightful lady, and we had no complaints about the quality of bed linen or towels. As visitors, we have to realise that life goes on for the residents of Alykes, and they are entitled to have their Sunday family barbeque. It smelt delicious - we would have loved to join them! It was the only time, during our week's stay, that this occurred. We wrote this review because it would be a shame if Spiros and Vicky ended their season on such a sour note. They don't deserve it! We were really pleased to read their response and totally agree with what they said. Anyway, we enjoyed our stay at Beach House 2, arrived home and booked again for next September straight away! Does that not say it all?
