Not a happy chappy this year have moved to other accommodation due to being threatened by owner,old manager not there him and wife missed by all will never be the same again,for those thinking of coming to these studios I would advise to give it a miss as I can honestly say it is crap,oh if you do go to it don't bang the table with your hand as I was told I was not to do it.so I will leave it up to you but from me don't go any where near it.alykes it's self is so friendly the people are fantastic and there are so many fantastic places to have your meals and drinks,lovely beach and nice walks around Alykes,I will try and put photos of new accommodation on the trip adviser the rooms are like a palace

This was our third visit to the Lofos, and we were disappointed to find Ilyas and his wife were no longer there.
A bigger disappointment was being allocated room 4!! The faults with, and in, this room are too numerous to mention, so I won't. Possibly our main concern was a smoke alarm which had no battery, and an electric kettle that was a fire hazard. No matter how careful, water from the bathroom always found it's way via the black grime in the corners, into the bedroom. To have one toilet roll for a fortnight is luxury, we had half of one. We also commented on how the Olympic rep had given herself the best room.!! The change of management is certainly a change for the worse, and we certainly won't be returning.

Room Tip: Avoid room 4.

Returning for fifth time to Lofos, found the room tired and grubby. Wardrobe door hanging off, bathroom left a lot to be desired. Ants in rooms. Allocated 1 small toilet roll for fortnight. Absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever. Previously bar run by Ilir, who was fun, fun fun. and fabulous food by his wife, Marsela, This year owner's daughter running bar, it's so depressing after previous fantastic night life. Still love Alykes but no more Lofos for us.The best room is room 10 but this was occupied by the Olympic rep.

Room Tip: Room 10 the best (with best view) but rep in there. Room 4 the worst, apparently damp all the time a...

Room was lovely and clean . had towels and linens changed during the week -and the bathroom and kitchen looked pretty newly updated too
The only " gripe" would be the room we had (9) was a 2 bedroom and the balcony that ran around adjoining the rooms was very narrow-- hence the tables and chairs were tantamount to useless if you wanted to sit and have some lunch== However when the snacks Ilyas and his wife produced being so delicious and such good value - it was no great hardship -- sandwiches were actually large sub/ baguettes stuffed to the gills with salad / ham/cheese etc -- came with well cooked fries /additional salad & lovely home made coleslaw -- all for about 3 euros !! The salads are also exceptionally nice .
The breakfast " full English" awesome value at 4.50 - with English Sausage , Black Pud as well as the usual other bits to go with - add in a big orange juice and PG tips tea and it set you up for the day !! ( appreciate English fry up not really a holiday meal- but just cant fault the quality or value so had to mention ! )
If you really wanted to produce meals the kitchen had a massive fridge freezer and cutlery / plates and cups -- it was very basic & ok nothing matched but hey ho - there was an electric kettle for the coffee and tea so we were happy !!
The other thing a few guests didnt like was the 1.50euro charge for a cushion for the sun bed -- I have to say this didnt bother me as made it the most comfy sun bed I have used in a long long while --( and if you popped down to the beach it was 5 euros for 2 beds anyway -- ).
Sound from the bar did carry later in the Evening and room 9s first bedroom over looks the bar so I can appreciate later in the season if it stayed open into the wee small hours and a guest had retired early it could be a bit noisy - but the Studios only have 11 rooms anyway so I'm sure its something you'd get used to .......
The Lofos are brilliantly placed for Alykes - as you just pop down a short hill and are smack bang in the centre - the restaurant Relax is very good - and Spikeys Bar opposite is too . It was my 2nd stay in Alykes and I would highly recommend all the bars and restaurants to anyone -- its still in keeping the Greek Charm as basically only one main street & no nightclubs- so suits couples and familys young and old who want nice traditional Greek Hospitality without the usual "british-ness" sometimes associated with the larger resorts
I think its a testament to the Lofos that a lot of " non guests" popped in for a bite to eat and drink - Iilyas is such a personable chap - his english is exceptional -and I can imagine nothing is too much trouble if you needed help with making anything about your holiday more enjoyable.
For those of you going later in the season - they have finally fitted the air con at 35euros a week - and judging by the temperature when we left on 2nd June - you just may well need it !!!!!

The Lofos studios I cannot fault. Location is excellent or so we thought until nightime. There was a group of ,should know better adults (kids) there, that totally disrespected anyones privacy until sometimes 4 in the morning. One even had a megaphone which was continually played until 3.30 am. They were spending money so the barman just let them carry on, and on and on. They had an official warning off Olympic that they just laughed at. They totally spoilt our first weeks holiday. Managed to get a transfer to Agios Sostis which was so peaceful, I'd advise anybody to avoid these apartments in June or July, and try Agios Sostis...These holiday wreckers seem to think that the place is there just for them only. This is regrettably a truthful review ...
