Having been disappointed by a Holiday in Tsilivi in 2012, we were in two minds about returning to Zante, but I am exceedingly glad that we did. The Alykes Garden Village is an absolutely superb venue for a family holiday. Jimmy, his sister Soula and their extended family could not have made us more welcome. They learn the names of every guest, and get to everyone. Every guest gets VIP service - unlike some hotels where the level of service is determined by how much you spend in the bar. Jimmy is genuinely interested in and how you spend your day and is passionate about ensuring that you enjoy your holiday.
The hotel and grounds are pristine, the rooms are of a good size and are serviced every day.
The Garden Village is an ideal base for a holiday, with no noisy roads or bars nearby, there is nothing to disturb your rest other than the local cockerel.
Unlike Tsilivi, Alykes has no tacky 18 - 30 type bars, but instead has a number of cocktail bars offering fun in a civilised setting.
Alykes has some great Restaurants, Lino Bistro, Artemis, Paradasiako, Ponderosa to name but a few, however the best by far is the Koukonari - or Pine Cone Restaurant, a brand new, family run business half way between the Alykes Garden Village and the centre of the Resort. Please try this Restaurant, you will not be disappointed.
This was probably the best place I have ever stayed in for a family holiday, certainly the friendliest, and with the most attentive host. I would never normally go back to the same venue, but would definitely return to the Alykes Garden Village.
