“Holiday heaven”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Just returned from a two week stay with my daughter at the potamitis studios where we had an amazing holiday. George and his family are kind and generous people and its my fortune to call them our friends. The whole complex is clean and spotless, pure relaxation. Andrianna your cooking is the best. Angela and Vicky you are beautiful daughters. Marcus the gentleman who helped me try to master my Greek thank you. Stavis is the nicest guy and I wish you and Vicky happiness. Hilda, her hard work each day was appreciated cleaning all the rooms, and Russell who maintained the gardens and pool, thank you. The studios are are a few minutes walk from the restaurants, shops and beach ideally located. With views of the lovely mountains or pool from the rooms it's a place to relax away from it all. Greta the family dog, gorgeous and so friendly. George is a really lovely man, a funny character with a big heart. We will definitely be returning here again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4 which was lovely. Pool view from the front and garden/mountain views from the ba...

We have just returned home from another fantastic holiday with George & Andriana and their family. We could not have been made more welcome. As always the food was superb, the room and all other areas were really well kept and clean. We unfortunately had an accident on a bike (hired from Nikos in Alykes - faulty brakes. BEWARE). George took me to the hospital on 2 occasions, he made everything really easy and made sure we got to see the right people and got the right treatment. The rest of the family held the fort and made sure I was ok. I was able to get the medication I needed quickly from Vicki. She also gave me daily injections. The whole family were fantastic and the accident did not really spoil the holiday because of their kindness. Thank you so much.

We have just returned from a very relaxing two weeks in Alykes.
George and his family were extremely welcoming and accommodating.
We didn't spend a great deal of time at the premises as we love to get out and about and explore the island...but what we did experience was of an excellent standard.
The studios, pool, bar and restaurant are spotlessly clean and tidy.
The bed was really comfortable, however the pillows a little flat for my liking!
Our studio had a great view across to Kefalonia, it was great to sit out on the balcony with a coffee in the morning.
We ate here at least 3 times over our two week stay, where the food was of a good standard, however, we chose to eat out more, as we are real foodies and love to try different things!
If you love to meet other people to socialise with on holiday, this is definitely the place for you!
Most of the mature guests knew each other and all socialised together every year, we like to keep ourselves to ourselves and enjoy each other's company, as our holiday is our valuable time together. Our privacy was respected by others and we weren't made to feel awkward or felt obliged to join in the group socialising at night.
On the whole, an excellent base to enjoy Zante!

We've just returned from our 13th holiday in Greece (each time to somewhere different), but our first visit to the Potamitis Studios in Alykes, and we might just have found somewhere we'll be back to.

I really wanted to write something a bit different from all the other great reviews, but it's not easy. George and his team have got it just right, as far as we're concerned, and we could see within the first couple of days why so many people return over and over again. This has to be one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had and the only problem we had was an atrocious 1.5 hour Thomson coach transfer when we arrived. (It took us 20 minutes to get back to the airport by taxi at the end of the week.)

The rooms are comfortable, well-equipped (by Greek self-catering standards) and kept immaculately clean, like the rest of the complex. The pool is great for "proper swimming" and the area surrounding it is spacious, with plenty of sunbeds. We never aim to do much on holidays these days and found the bar and pool area a very peaceful place to work our way through several books on the Kindles, with the odd break for an ice cream, a beer or an iced coffee. The studios seem to cater best for "mature" visitors and the some of the best things about the place are the things which are missing such as loud music, "entertainment" and... dare I say it... children!! Our fellow holidaymakers were good company and there was a sense of sharing something a bit special in finding such a gem. The whole atmosphere is very simple: friendly and relaxed.

Thank you George... we'll quite possibly see you again next year.

First time to Potamitis and what a great time we had,George,Andrianna etc all make you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble.We ate there every night bar one as Andrianna is a wonderful cook and also very reasonable.The rooms very clean and comfortable,pool fantastic and made some good friends too.
All in all had a brilliant time was made to feel very welcome and in fact we felt we had just had 2 weeks staying with greek family in their home!
The actual place Alykes and nearby Alykanas lovely and the Island very pretty and easy to see.
Would definitely recommend Potamitis and we will definitely be returning.

My husband and I returned for a second time in June after a two year gap, and weren't disappointed, the same welcoming, friendly, spotlessly clean place that we remembered and were hoping for, George greeted us with the words 'old friends' and that's what we felt we were. Andriannas food was once again fabulous, her beef stiffado 'DELICIOUS!' and we chose to eat there every evening, this really is a family run business with his family and partners all pulling together to make your holiday memorable, the beach is a short 10-15 mins leisurely walk away and is well worth a visit. We have booked our return for next year.
