we are staying at Andreas studios from in October, Have you got any info on best places to eat? Also car hire. Thanks Marilyn
Just reading the latest comments....freedom of speach, not bad language. My comments are futher down the page as, my Family and I were there, end of June beg., of July. This was spoilt by some people!! hangers on.. from the place next door and various people who did not stay and Andreas Apartments...... Did you have to be rude and crude to get a response from Dennis... Well this is what we thought. I can uphold our good family name by not disgracing ourselves to gutter level like some! We were there to have a good time, we were entertained across the road at the Potomisis!!! where George and his Family were fantastic!!!
this is a message for mrs b!! I can assure you that the girl called Hayley writing in red was the one hanging around for three months she did not stay at the apartments. I agree with your comments.
For the information of HAYLEY CLARIDGEI think you are very rude. The purpose of these forums is that we can add positive or negative feedback so allow holiday makers to have their own thoughts of The Andreas Studios. Did you stay here for 3 months or did you hang around the bar all day/night when other paying guests tried to relax.
In response to your comment Hayley!!! Some people don't like coming down to the pool bar and have better things to do. You call people boring and lazy however as you said you where in Alykes for 3 months some people are only there for a week and want to relax. Others go out till late at nite and wanna relax in the day without all the noise and the bullying that happens when they don't go to the pool bar. People are entitled to their opinion and there is no need to swear and be rude.
i stayed in alykes for nearly 3 months and was at this pool bar most days, it is excellent the bar staff are friendly and entertainin!to all those that hav complained about how borin this place is, next tym try gettin off ur lazy f**kin ass and chattin to ppl to get to no them and hav a laugh, do u people not go on holiday to have fun!? fair enuf if u wna relaxin holiday bt still... u gta hav a bit fun! if your lookin to go on holiday in alykes, i recommend this place, dnt listen to all the borin ones unless u r 1 aswell hayley x
Stayed here from the 18th Sept 06 for a week not a bad place clean and friendly staff!!!
Hayley I do hope you enjoy your stay at the Andreas.... Personally my husband and I didn't. The studios are at least a 10-20 minute walk from the centre (pubs, restaurants, beach). If you're looking for a very slow stop holiday then great you will have fun but if you enjoy a nice meal followed by a few cocktails then the walking boots are on.... Not much happening close by.
At the end of the day it's each to their own. You will either love it or hate it.
Great time at the Akis, basic it may be but so is most of Greece, came
home on the 27th of August wife was bitten by the mozzies 56 times in
one night but otherwise a great time.Peaceful,clean,friendly what more
could you ask.Found a little taverna run and served by greeks,food was
delicious and hot.It was along the main road near a supermarket (from
the Akis it was across the salt flats and a bit to the left away from
the shops) and the waiter was named Paul good laugh and all the staff
were friendly.Will go back again.
This Had to be the worst place possible.... As the previous person Comments on the people running the Show! Dennis/Yannis. They entertained 'Their' guests with no consideration for 'US' residents. We have just returned on 10/07/06 we will not be going back and strongly recommend that Thompsons removes this hotel from it's books.....! Like the rest, we spent Our time at the Potamitis, where George & Andrianna and Family were FANTASTIC! That's how a Place should be run.... Read and Learn... All Thompson Certificates hanging on the walls behind the Bar in the Potamitis!!! What can I say.. Where are they in The Andreas eh? Happy to be back and if we went back... it would be at the Potamitis! All who read this take heed!!!
We stayed at the Andreas in Sep - its a 15-20 min stroll on the Katastari road into the main part of Alykes, depending on how fast you are walking (or how many mythos you have had!) We used to walk down and get the 'pony express' back to the studios in the evening if we were feeling lazy. If you are visiting the centre more than once in the day it can be a bit of a drag, but the Andreas is in a nice quiet location (apart from the cockeral in the morning!) so it depends what you would prefer.
Can anyone tell me exactly where in Alykes the Andreas is located? Is it on the road to Katastari - if so, how far is it from Alykes centre. Concerned that it might be quite a distance/climb out of the centre - not clear in the holiday brochure map ref. Thanks
was at Andreas studios may 05 -- great place to stay - clean - great staff - nothing to much trouble- looking to go again in 06 -- will be my 7th stay in zante
i just got bk from alykes on friday and i stopped at the andreas with some older friends, i thought it was going to be really boring but we ended up spending most of our time by the pool!! i am hopefully going to return next year with some more friends for a big girlie holiday so watch out the best holiday i've had 4 ages
We've just spent a relaxing week in Alykes (May 2005), and the weather was fantastic! The Andreas Studios are a short walk out of the centre, and although are basic, are very clean. They all have balcony's/terraces, and the kitchen equiptment was more than adequate for our needs.(A toaster/Kettle/2 ring cooker/Fridge) We also had plenty of hot running water - all day. The pool area is also clean and 'Dennis the Menace' who runs the bar is young and lively - and say's yes to everything, even when he means no!The resort was great for us, but some might find it a bit too quiet - especially as most places had closed by 12.30am. The beaches are ideal for young families, as is the sea, because it's warm and very shallow. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, and Alykanas is only a short walk away - or a horse and carriage ride for 5euros. We ventured in Laganas one evening, it cost 20 euro's in a taxi each way - don't pay any more than that as some try to charge 25 euro's. Laganas is very lively with plenty of bars/clubs. We also went by bus to Zakynthos town - which was busier than I expected. Don't go on a Weds afternoon though, as it's half day closing.
Having stayed there for our honeymoon in June 2004 - we have booked again for our 1st anniversary this year - we would recommend the Andreas to anyone who wanted to chill out and just soak up the atmosphere of Alykes
has anybody got address of andreas apartments, alkyes
The Holiday Company have moved the Andreas Studios to a new brochure, they are in Portland Direct, you can book over the phone or on the web so its cheaper (no travel agent) Hope this helps
Contact details for Andreas apartments as cannot find in any brochures, and we would like to return in May/June this year
we need accomidation for eight people appartments or villa
The andreas studios are a great place for a great holiday. the studios are very clean and every one was very friendly. the only complate that i did have was i thought the walk from the beach was a bit challeging in the heat, although the horse and cart ride every night was well worth it!!!! had a fantasitic holiday! ill b back!!!!
When we went to Andreas Studios on 13th June 2003, we met loads of people who are very friendly. Especially, Rob & Anna from Cardiff & Swansea and Chris & Niomi from Southern England (first time abroad)
