“Fantastic holiday, amazing hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We have been back from holiday for a week now but we have great memories of our holiday here. We arrived late at night and George was very welcoming....the studios and pool / bar area were spotlessly clean at all times and it was a very relaxed warm atmosphere. The food was all home cooked and there was a huge choice. It was always really really good and Andriana also did Greek specials all of which were delicious. We met some lovely people who added to the enjoyment of our holiday, there was a great beach not far away and we did a bit of sightseeing on a quad! This holiday was all we wanted and more, we would definitely go back!
Thanks to George and his lovely family and to Hilda and Russell..
Joan and Ron

Room Tip: We had room 3 next to the pool which seemed to stay cool and we didnt feel the need to have the air...

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week away at Potamitis Studios and are now depressed as we wish we'd booked for longer!! On arrival we were delighted after booking the trip a couple of days before very last minute. We were greeted by George - a lovely, kind and very friendly man - who told us we were younger than the usual group of people that come to stay! The entire holiday we were made to feel welcome by George, his family, and all the guests staying at the hotel. I have read a few reviews that say George gets funny if you don't eat at the hotel but this is rubbish, we only ate at the hotel twice - and if anything regretted not eating there more as all the other restaurants do not compare to the brilliant standard of food at Potamitis. We returned to the hotel almost every evening for a drink before going to bed and the atmosphere and people were lovely. It is a quiet, relaxing and immaculately clean hotel - a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants in Alykes. The area is lovely, neighboured by a more livelier strip in Alykanas again only a 10-15min walk away. We were made to feel very welcome at Potamitis Studios and had a brilliant holiday - thanks to George and his family! We hope to visit again sometime in the future!

We had a lovely two weeks with George, Adriana, Angela, Marcos and the rest of the family, because this hotel is very much a family affair. Also Hilda who keeps the rooms immaculate and Russell who is always running around doing jobs in the grounds, pool etc.
Adriana's food is amazing, if only she did more delicious specials but she works hard enough as it is. We were made to feel very welcome and at home.
The rooms are a little dated and the showers are a right pain, but you do get used to them.
The pool is superb and it's only a 10/15 minutes slow stroll to town and the beach. A 30 minute walk into Alykanasass and here there is another beach well worth a visit. Or just stroll to it along the beach from Alykes.
There are plenty of restaurants in town, although some didn't do too well on the food or service front for us. Adrianna's Keleftiko is a benchmark and you will not find better elsewhere.
Now, the beware..............We made lots of friends at the Potamitis and enjoyed plenty of nights at the bar often being the last ones to leave. We dinned, breakfasted and lunched at the hotel more than we ate out, given our couple of experiences in town. So imagine our surprise when another of the guest mentioned to us that George had been bending his ear about people who had been recommending restaurants and that no-one was eating or drinking on site! At this stage there were only 8 of us from the previous week as everyone else was a new guest, with many returning visitors of several years standing. We could not understand this reaction from George. Needless to say a great 14 days turned sour in the last 2. I did speak to the rep but George is known for this and always does it.
So please go and visit the Potamitis but take a pinch of salt with you and keep your hackles down.

We have just returned from a week in Zante. It has been the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and that is due to the wonderful hosts, George, Andrianna and family. These are top class appartments. Immaculate in presentation and extremely clean. We had a personal welcome from George, who had remebered my name and the fact we were coming as I joined his facebook group. George and family could not do enough for us. Pure quality - they take pride in everything and ensure everything is top qaulity - the food, drink, pool, presentation, service etc. Showering before you go in the pool can only be a good thing :-). He calls you his friends and that's how we genuinely felt and will look forward to returning.

Some people have commented previously on this site about George and his partucular ways, I fail to see how this is a problem, especially when the UK hosts some of the worst customer service possible. George and his family are particular in how attentive they are to your needs and making your stay with them happy and relaxing. George is also very funny and a pleasure to listen to.

Contrary to what some may have mentoned on here, we did not feel that George would react badly if we did not eat at his appartments, he will reserve you a table but is more than happy if you decide to go elsewhere. this is the first holiday however where we did eat at the same place every night! The food is absolutley amazing, and I really miss it!

We did wander out for drinks in the evening and lunch for food as there are some lovely tavernas on the sea front. We did not hire a car this time as we were more than happy to laze around the appartments but I heard great reports from people that did.

I can't thank George and his family enough. We had a wonderful holiday and feel so relaxed. I miss all the smiles as unfortunately you return to this country and they are rarely presented!!!! Top class. Amazing. Fabulous.

We have just returned from this idyllic location in Zakynthos from undoubtedly the most relaxing and pampered holiday we have ever had. My wife is a great fan of Crete but even she had to admit that this island in the Ionian Sea has everything in spades, apart from a Minotaur, and it was multiplied many times by the fantastic facilities provided by Georges & the glorious gastronomy of Andriana. Not forgetting the ministrations of the rest of the family who have the very best interests of their guests at the top of the agenda.
Efkaristo poli once again & we are already counting the days to out return next year.

Room Tip: There are only 19 apartments and we had one at the front that was perfect. The ones near the pool ar...
