Me and my fiance had a brilliant holiday in alykes.Beach was fantastic- sea was crystal clear (just watch out for the jellyfish).
Just returned from yet another fantastic holiday in Alykes.
Hi! I'm Monica or Mnk for friends..I stayed to Alykes from the 6th until the 14th of august 2007.
If you enjoy peace and quiet then this is the place for you.
This was our ninth visit in 14 years and it is still fab.
WE have been to Alykes now for the last two years and Love it! The Koukanaria apartments are fantastic, they have a large pool to relax by, a well run friendly bar and all the staff are very helpful. I don't think we will find anywhere as nice to go again. The beach area has plenty of restuarants & bars that are all reasonably priced, there is just enough in the area to enjoy without it becoming garish...A lovely family holiday destination. Try a visit to the Iris bar! great company and really friendly bar staff. The only downside is the Maestro Pizza Restuarant which although looking very nice but has the poorest service we received from any of the restuarants, avoid this one like the plague. Try a trip to St Nicholas Beach for the diving...great fun at a reasonable price with a DVD of you and your kids available at the end, suitable for anyone from 8 - 60+... Have fun
This was our second time to Zante and our first time to Alykes. We were recommended by a friend who has been ten years running and we were not dissappointed.The town has a good selection of tourist shops, several mini supermarkets and plenty of bars and " Tavernas" to enable you to eat somewhere different every day.Good Beach, shallow and clean and some nice walks in the hills or along the beach, about 15/20 minutes to Alykanas for even more bars etc. to visit.A rather nice way to return to your hotel or apartment after a night out is by the local horse drawn carrages.
Alykes is a good place to go n chill, it still has that greek feel to it & isnt spoilt like some other resorts on the island. Plently of good restaurants & bars but all pretty low key so good for couples & families. The beach is fab, really shallow water, we loved Alykes!
Just arrived back from Alykes on Sunday 9th July. Had a lovely time, staying in the Clio Hotel which is beside the salt flats. The hotel is very clean, quiet location and not too far from the main strip of restaurants, bars and beach (about 800m) or 10 minute stroll. Alykes is a relatively quiet resort with a great beach and some nice restaurants. I recommend the Olympic Kitchen which serves excellent quality food and a great wine list, relaxed atmosphere but superior to the more touristy open air restaurants along the strip. Do check it out- went there twice during the week and both times were very enjoyable. Also the Paradosiako between Alykes and Alykanas is good, with a nice atmosphere and well cooked food. Watch out for the mosquitos during the evenings though as it's close to the river and you are likely to be biten several times over a meal. Another great restaurant is the Village Inn which is in Zante town, just along the harbour front and only a few minutes from Solomon square. The quality of the food in these restaurants really puts all the other mediocrity to shame and for a euro or so more per dish, it's well worth it!
We have just returned from our third visit to Alykes and once again have had a brilliant holiday. This is the only place we have been back to because everyone is so friendly and you seem to relax as soon as you arrive at the resort. We stay at the Panorama Studios behind the salt flats and it is just a 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and bars. It amazes me how some of the bar/restaurant owners remember people but everytime we go back it feels as if we have never been away. Its the perfect place to relax and unwind, with plenty of places to eat and drink! We have met so many wonderful people who return to this resort year after year because it is that sort of place! We will be back again in September 2007!
just back from alykes we love it been there for the last nine years three times in 2002.nice places to eat and lovely bars will suit everyone the people are friendly and over the years have made some special friends.
Aylkes is a quiet result, We stayed at the Sellini Apartments which are good 30 minute walk into the centre and beach and 45 minute back up hill. Alykes is a lovely friendly little town everyone wishing a good day, The Sellini Apartments on the other hand are the type of place if you are someone who likes to sit by the pool all day and spend, spend spend you will have a great friend in Jimmy!!! If like us you like sight seeing and don't purchase much at the very very over priced pool bar, Jimmy doesn't even talk to you. Over all I would go back to Alykes but not to the sellini apartments! By the way the greedy greek is the best place to eat, with a free horse and carriage there and back and free wine all night, excellent on a saturday being greek night with fire eating and lots of fun.
Just bakc form Alikes.
Went to Alykes in May for our honymoon, highly recommend it if you want a peacefull, relaxing holiday. Weather was good, not too hot. People very friendly and welcoming,. Stayed at Zantino studios. lovely location, beautifull views of mountains from balcony. Effie, who cleans and looks after the appartments was wonderful, she picked some lovely roses for our room when she learned we were on honymoon and kept the rooms spotless. Many places to eat, all very reasonable Went on the jeep safari off road into the mountains, bit scary at times driving close to edge off cliffs, but scenery and the little villages we went to were well worth it. Also went on the cruise round the island. breathtaking views of the many caves with sea as blue as saphires. All in all had a great time and would go back tomorrow.
Looking forward to going back again end of may. It s just a fantastic place to go for a family holiday.
we have been back to ALIKES four times in the past 5 years ,something we have never done before , we are resonably well travelled, and I can tell you it is one of the friendliest places we go!! The people just love to see you , we normally stay at the Sellini /Soula complex where Jimmy and his family cant do enough to please everybody!! The bars and restuarants are fantastic there is just so many to choose from , our favourite bar is the HEATWAVE Tassis makes GREATTTTTT cocktails !!!!!
Going to Alikes fo first time on may 1st for our honymoon, what is the weather like then, also any info on Zantino studio appartments and general info (cash machines, cheap eating places, bars with live music etc) would be usefull. Thanks.
STAYED IN ALIKES 3 TIMES THE RESORT IS NOT AS IN YOUR FACE
