“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

is a safe place where you return with pleasure.host is a wonderful person.everything was perfect.Although the hotel is rated as ** I offer *** and for services ****.
cleanliness was grade 10.

on arrival we were greeted with juice and sweets.

arrived in the room we found a basket of goodies (from the host) cupcakes and a bottle of vin.in fridge were two sodas, and a cold beer homemade jam and butter,all on the house.

We were impressed. linens and towels are changed every day and the staff was very attentive.

I bought oranges to make juice from them.the maid saw orange peels in the garbage, and the next day, without being asked, I found the kitchen a citrus juicer.
nice room, good pool, beautiful garden.feel at home.
I recommend this hotel.

everything was perfect

Me, my husband and my 12 years old boys spent at the Alkyon H&Apt one week in august 2013 and from the first moment you arrive Mrs Tassia make you feel better than at home: a sweet, warm welcome is waiting for you. She keep the place with love and devotion and you can feel it from the first moment you arrive there.
The apartments are cosy , kitchens are basic furnished with everything you may need to have a nice stay –just note if you are more than three the fridge is the little one kind - you have air conditioned and they are cleaned every day. Bathrooms – like in many other parts of Greece – have curtains to separate the shower area from the rest of the room, but everything is perfectly cleaned and well kept.
Whatever you need Mrs Tassia and her personal are there to help you, or simply to recommend you the best beaches, secret spots or perfect restaurants in the island. Of course personal working there is just like she is: nice, polite and efficient and always smiling.
The swimming pool area is fantastic: perfectly kept, regularly cleaned and you can use wi-fi : in some apartments directly from the balcony, other way you can use it in the bar area.
The garden too is so nice and as we learnt it was copied from one she saw in Ravello (IT) together with her husband … really romantic! We really appreciated the possibility to use bicycles (for free) going for nice riding in the evening along the sea, we could also use sun-chairs and umbrella from the hotel for our wanderings across the island.
Close to the hotel you can go to an excellent bakery and have 2 mini markets, Lefkas town is 10 min. by car and you need one, of course, to visit the wonderful beaches of the island.
It’s just a pity for the sea of Lygia is not the best in the island, but if you decide to choose Lygia as strategic point to visit the island, Alkyon hotel is the best place to spend your holiday because is a place of full relax and calm and because this place is run with the heart and with love and you can feel it.

We rented one of the two villas in Alkyon for 7 days and had a great time. Staff were friendly, accommodating, pool was clean and great and atmosphere very cool. My 5 year son enjoyed it thoroughly. Now the location was OK, the parking are could have been better but our biggest complaint is about the Villa facilities. The beds were OK but old, the bathrooms similar to the cheapest rented rooms in the Greek islands (curtain to separate the floor from wc and basin) and the kitchens tiny. How do they expect to accommodate 6 people with a tinny student size fridge in the middle of the summer that could not even fit two bottles of water? Could they improve the kt=itchen area to include a proper oven, a proper kettle and plugs and a large fridge? With some improvements in terms of investing the place would be great. The place was very clean, people friendly and overall it was a great stay.

We stayed a week in Alkyon! Had a fantastic time! The apartment (we stayed in an apartment with a separate bedroom) was simply furnished, but very nice and with everything you need! We travelled with a little baby and had a cot and a high chair provided for us! The staff was excellent, so helpful and always smiling!! The cleaning was extremely good, the place was spotless!! We had a nice balcony with a nice view of the pool, sat there in the evenings and relaxed - and used it in the morning for breakfast. Free wifi which was great! And bikes were provided for free, so you could cycle to the mini market and bakery to get the necessity for breakfast! Lygia is a small village, quiet with a few restaurants and shops. Suited us perfect as we wanted a relaxing time. A two min walk to the beach from Alkyon (pebbles, not serviced beach). You could walk 1,4 km to the port where there was a serviced beach (also pebbles) with sun beds (5 euros for two sunbeds and a table) and a cafe, very nice! We went there every day, along the way you pass by a few restaurants by the sea. We dined at Seven Islands one evening, good food! There is also a nice pool at Alkyon with sun beds, a little part if the pool is shallow for kids. The property is very nicely looked after with a lovely garden! There is also a pool bar. Up by the main road there is a tavern called Sidrivani tavern, we dined there five days! Was excellent food, and cheap! Real home cooked meals! Overall I can highly recommend Alkyon, we had the best time! Since we travelled with a baby we got the aircon for free, which was a very nice gesture! There is also a safe deposit box you can rent for 10euros/week. Lygia is also a good starting point to explore Lefkas further!! The staff can help you with car and moped rental.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment A4 which was a good internal location. Nice view of the pool, ground floor wh...

We've been there twice so far and this year we're going again!!! It's perfect quiet place, very beautiful island and very nice hotel. And we all love the owner - the lovely kuria Thassia who makes sure all visitors feel like home.
We always love our stay there!!!

We stayed at Alkyon from Aug 3-8 - we were 2 families - 4 adults and 4 children. Upon arrival to the hotel we were welcomed with fresh juice and local treats. In our rooms we had local fresh fruit, bread, cookies, coffee which was a nice treat. Even though I made an error on our arrival dates :(we were supposed to stay Aug 2-7 - k. Tasia at Alkyon made accomodations for us in her personal home above the office area as there was no availability during the last day - that to me speaks wonders and we thank them very very much for doing this. We had absolutely no issues with anything at the hotel during our stay - rooms were always clean - staff was always helpful - pool area was inviting and very relaxing. I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone. Also keep in mind that this hotel is located rather conveniently - very close to Lefkada town and very close to Nidri which are two main tourist towns.
Thanks to all the staff at alkyon for making our stay amazing.

I spent a week in Alkyon Apartments in August 2013 with my husband.Overall the establishment lived up and was beyond our expectations.The environment was peaceful and stylishly decorated both in the interior and the exterior of the hotel.The swimming pool area was really inviting(surrounded by a beautiful garden) and because of the size of the hotel it was never crowded although the place was fully booked when we arrived.The apartment was cosy,with a minimal yet classy decoration.The kitchen was fully equipped with very clean(!!)crockery and cutlery and the room was cleaned every single day.The cleaning ladies even washed our dishes one day that i left them in the shink.Another thing i loved was that we were given bicycles(free of charge)and we went for rides in the evening along the sea.Finally,hospitality was excellent.Everyone was really polite and Mrs Tasia gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home.She was always there to give us information about the area and ask us if we need anything.I highly recommend Alkyon as it is good value for money and it will not disappoint you in any way.If you decide to visit make sure you try Deena's wonderful coctails at the pool bar!!!(and get her tips about which places to visit or what to avoid as she knows the island really well and whatever she recommended to us was excellent)The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer as the hotel was fully booked for the next two weeks..But hopefully we'll visit again next year...looking forward to it already.
