Excellent base to explore the outstanding beauty of the West and North Coasts and mountains by car. Very clean , large Pool with plenty of sunbeds and parasols. Very tasteful and good value snacks by poolside restaurant/cafe. Rooms regularly cleaned and bedding regularly changed. Management and staff very caring and always wanting to please. Provide a fridge, kettle and hotplates for snacks. 5 minute walk only to main centre with many excellent Tavernas at good value, ATM, Car Hire, Internet Cafe, Bakery and Trainaki. Only 10 minute walk to one of the best Beaches on Zante. 2 minute walk to Alykes Supermarket offering best choice and best value in Alykes, with Maria a wonderful lady who did much to make our Holiday so memorable.
Thanks Derek, been through the brochure and on the website but the Akis dont seem to be showing.
Can anyone tell me how to book these apartments for next year. I have looked at all operators and cant seem to find them anywhere.
We stopped at the Akis Apartments in July and i have to say the friendly welcome and service we recieved whilst there was excellent, nothing was to much trouble.
7 of us stayed in the Akis and found them to be simple but all that we needed. They are cleaned to the highest standard we have ever seen and are a credit to the owners. The pool is large and cleaned to the same high standard. The food served was always good and inexpensive.The location is ideal with only a 5 minute walk in to Alykes and a Supermarket only 2 minutes away. We also found that the best Resteraunt was the Paradise again only a 2 minute walk, where the food was stunning and very reasonably priced too.
Just returned from another 2wk stay at the Akis studios. There were five of us so we were in studios 8 & 11 both were very clean although after a few days i was wanting my new bed back!
Just returned from 2 weeks staying at the Akis and it was great. If you're wanting 5* then go book somewhere that offers it but for what you pay you get clean towels and a clean room. The pool bar offers great food and drinks at a good price. A family run business who work very hard all day to make sure you are looked after well. I recommend you buy the 6 bottles of water for 2 euros from the pool bar as it helps not having to carry them from the local supermarkets. Never had any problems with anything and didnt hear of anyone else staying there having anything negative to say either.
We have stayed at The Akis 5 times now having been put in various apartments around the pool and also in the block on the approach to the apartments all have been more than adequate for our needs, after all we are on holiday to see the sights and get some sun not to stay in and cook! Vivienne and family are most obliging nothing being too much trouble need extra towels ask and they are yours in fact any problems just ask and they will be resolved. We will be back again in August having booked direct with them this time and we will be using the bar before we go out of an evening we will also have breakfast there before we head of for a hard days sunbathing we feel it is important to put money their way as the tour companies rip them off.
So don't believe all you read we have recommended The Akis to friends who have also stayed there and they feel the same as us great place one of the cleanest pools anywhere we have ever stayed and lovely friendly owners and staff.
Roll on August 26th
i stayed at the akis apartments in 2006 it was great i had a great time and would love to go there again. the people there were kind and the staff were polite and the food was lovely in the pool bar
We had alovely weeks holiday at the Akis in Sept 06. Room was quite basic but very clean and the maid came in everyday.A lovely quiet location with a fabulous pool. Food served in the bar was very good and the staff very friendly. Our Olympic holiday rep was very helpful. I did get bitten badly by the mozzies despite using lots of sprays etc only downside to the holiday
I had to post a new note just to say, the Akis pool and bar are excellent. BUT if you stayed in the block with the black railings or the block just on the drive overlooking the drive one way and a rough grassy patch on the other, and you haven't complained you must have money to burn. The Akis studios looking down over the pool are by far superior and as we have all paid for the same holiday, why should we not get the same comforts and cleanliness. I wasn't bothered about a kettle and toaster I can live like the Greeks for a week but not like a dirty Greek!
From the moment the Rep put us off the bus and said your rooms are just up those three steps up a dusty track ALARM BELLS should have rung, we looked around to ask a question and she was gone, back on the bus and away in a cloud of dust.
what a fab holiday every thing we wanted really quiet and relaxing the Akis were basic but nice kitchen was really naff no kettle or toaster but we had a great laugh trying to cook breakfast as the smoke alarm was situated above the cooker, gave up and ate at the poolside bar where the food was very nice and resonable. Met some very nice and friendly locals especially Colin at the Santa Barbara. All the resturants were very nice and resonable. Visited the Greedy Greek resturant nothing special but my husband said he now understands why its called the Greedy Greek (very expensive). We are definatly booking for next year with a big family of brother in laws and sisters and children and a mother in law to
We stayed at the Akis apartments from3rd sept for 1 week, not sure what some people are talking about??? No 11o/clock curfew, no mossies (but did everyting to prevent them) only 12 euros for the safety deposit box (rather pay and be safe than have nothing left), Shower was something to be desired but always is in Greece and for the sake of a couple of weeks i can handle it!!! Basic utensils but i never use them anyway, have always ended up buying extra toilet rolls anyway but if you asked Katrina she always sorted you out with anything, we had toilet rolls extra towels even a chair from round the swimming pool!! (don't ask don't get) Had a fab week, and would revisit!!!!
at the Akis for two weeks amd came home on the 27th of August.Quiet and
friendly,very hot one day reaching 54 cel in the shade and that was why
we were there.OK the maid service was not great the mozzies bit my wife
56 times in one night,but in a little taverna across the salt flats and
to the left away from the main shops ( just in front of a
supermarket)was Paulies or something like that, but I know one of the
waiters was named Paul and all the staff were friendly and the food was
great typical Greek cuisine.As for people saying that the Akis was
Basic so is all of the Greek islands that I have visited,but then if
you want the boring comforts of your own home Stay Home and that will
mean more room for me and my friends when we go to Zakynthos to relax.
Just got back from a week at the akis,
Yes it was Jack you would never forget that scream would you! I think everyone knew Jack buy the time we went home.Did you have a nice holiday?
Just got back on Sunday from Zante had a lovely time the weather was red hot for the 14 days we were there. It was nice and quite around the pool until my 3 yr old son got in and shattered everyones peace! The apartments were basic but kept clean enough only gripe was there was no kettle or toaster so you really had to go out to eat.I would stay again but i would take a stereo and a mini kettle.The food and drinks at the bar were ok but expensive. We eat at the maestro most nights their kleftico was the best! Best place on the island if you want somewhere for families and is still got its traditions.
went to the akis on the 18/6/06 had a lovely time rooms are bit small
but cleaned every day the people who own it are always there to help an
very polite they were great with my kids an the food was lovely in the
snack bar pool was very clean wouldnt hesistate to stay there
