Reviewed 23 September 2012

Just returned from a week staying with Eleni and her husband Nikos. (i'm 18 and went with my mum). These rooms are great value for money, and all you could want. We had a twin room on the top floor, and it was spotless and a decent size. Spare blankets and pillows are provided for personal taste. There is a delightful pool for all 12 rooms to use, so even with everyone there it still remains peaceful and calm. There is a snack bar by the pool and Eleni will do anything you ask! She and Nikos are always about, and very kind (although brush up on your Greek, Eleni speaks only a few words of English!) Only a 3 minute walk to the first tavernas and bars in Alykanas, and I felt perfectly safe out on my own as a young girl. Excellent location and will definitely return!

Just back from a week in the Elenis Garden, what a lovely place. Booked on the internet with no problem, although owners very friendly and attentive but do not speak much english their son takes care of this and is the contact. The rooms are well sized, kitchen equipment basic but then who wants to cook on a Greek holiday. The studios were very clean, bed comfortable with a balcony overlooking the little garden at back. Rooms cleaned every other day, linen changed very other day, The swimming pool area was clean and tidy, never busy and nice and quiet. No children that week and certainly no booming music!! Cant complain at all and would recommend a stay there for Alykanas. It is just on the outskirts of the village so relatively quiet most of the time, the outside noise does start quite early (traffic etc) so ear plugs a good idea to sleep a little longer!! 10 mintutes walk to the beach, 20 minutes easy walk to next village Alykes. Only down side in my opinion is paying 15 euros for the use of the safe. Didnt need the air con but would have been 7 euros. Would recommend the studios and would certainly stay again.

Best eatery - Lemon Tree on outskirts of village
Best drinks - Busters - Ollie makes the best cocktails ever and Anna great hostess!!
Car hire from Dragon - basic car but cheap

Absolutely perfect. A little oasis , only 12 rooms and they were absolutely spotless.
Eleni and Nico were so friendly . If you want to feel special then go there. Most days in the peak season we were there there was always a spell when i had the pool to myself.
We had a modern room which had a double bed and it was one of the most comfortable i have had in Greece as my back usually suffers.
It was a short walk to restaurants and the beach no problem at all .
Alykinas was just perfect so friendly everybody was so welcoming and everything was so cheap we had a three course meal with wine for 29 euros most restaurants give you free wine and bars give you free shots. Do the trainacki a fun day out and the greek night spiros does good value for money.

Whilst we did not stay at Eleni's this year,had to write a review to applaud the wonderful pool area there.Never too busy,no music playing (bliss),just a clean friendly well run complex which we used several times on holiday as we were staying at Elpida across the road,whose pool was a bit too noisy for us (children/music).I witnessed the cleaner at the apartments and was impressed with her attention to detail and the time she took cleaning a room-would look into staying here if returning to Alykanas as outlook beautiful and owners laid back & welcoming.A fine place to read,enjoy a drink and relax

Had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Eleni's Gardens, the room was basic, but most importantly clean. The pool was brilliant and not full of annoying kids with was greaaat.

Alykanas beach was superb and offered some great water sports. Definitely recommend the shipwreck and blue caves trip,

Only annoying point about appartments was it was similar to a RyanAir flight, non advised add ons, I don't remember the website saying it had air conditioning, but you had to pay 7euros a night, or pay extra for a safe box that was already in your room. You sometimes wish that holiday companies would tell you the whole price from the start.

Overall though Greaaat!

Just returned home from Elina's Gardens, superb place to stay in the middle of everything you need. We traveled with our 7 year old son and he was well looked after. We all loved the pool as most of the time we were the only one's in it!! and it was perfect depth for our son who could play without us worrying. We always love Zante and this area as we can wander down to the beach in the day and there is a great selection of tavern's in the evening. Also if you go you must hire a boat at alykanas beach from valais water sports it was great.We would definitely return to Elina's gardens, really memorable holiday, beautiful apartments lovely people. p.s if you love greece then five star rating not enough!

Just returned from a week at Eleni,s (29/07/12-05/08/12)
Beutifull studio,s situated on edge of Alykanas, hosts Eleni & Nicos make you feel most welcome even though they have limited spoken English, but will phone their son who speaks enough English, if required, rooms nice and clean, pool area lovely with plenty of sunloungers, stayed B&B with the most enormous wonderful breakfasts i,ve ever known, which changed on a daily basis, am already looking forward to returning next year, would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed, peacefull holiday.
