Just spent a fortnight at these apartments. The rooms are basic, but are kept very clean. We could not have asked for anymore from the family that run them and you could ask them for anything and they would try and fulfil your request. The food served at the pool bar was lovely. Most of the guests there are repeat customers and do so because they are made to feel so welcome. Stunning views around the apartments and the walk into Alykes beach/ Main Street is around 15 minutes on the flat. We can highly recommend a holiday there.
We stayed just one week at The Pothos but wish it had been longer!! Everything was excellent. The rooms were spacious & bright, clean & comfortable. The location is only 5mins to the beach or else walk up the side lanes into the peaceful countryside for stunning views down to Alykes. The family & staff are so friendly & helpful. They always have time for a chat creating a friendly atmosphere amongst all the guests. Breakfast is very good - especially the poached eggs!! Thank you Pothos for a lovely holiday - hope to see you next summer!!
Its our last day today and we have been made so welcome by the family run apartments. Perfect location, just far enough out of the centre but near enough to walk there and back twice a day , even in the heat!. Rooms are a good size with an excellent bathroom for Greek accommodation. I will definitely recommend here and will return hopefully next year. Loved Alykes and the relaxed atmosphere, just what I needed.
We love the pothos the rooms are lovely they are like a home from home the Pothos family are lovely they go out of their way to help the rooma were very clean the shower was lovely beds were ao comforable pool was lovely my 3 children absolutely loved it we cant wait to return in august 20w0

My daughter and I have just returned today from our first 2 week stay at pothos. Dennis and his family are amazing and make you feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble to them. It is situated behind the Salt Flats but less than a ten minute walk to the beach, bars and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are comfortable and the maid service is good. We had room 1. The balcony has a table and chairs and is spacious. There are plenty sunbeds and umbrellas around the pool area. Food at pothos is lovely especially the breakfasts. There is no entertainment during the day or evening but there is background music playing from the pool bar and TV screens inside the area. We met some lovely people who have been going to pothos for years because they love it so much. We will certainly return. Well done Dennis and family. …
Visited here in July and was looking for somewhere to just relax. It was certainly relaxing and a lovely little place but it was too quiet, the family that run it are lovely but there is absolutely nothing going on - the evenings are dead. The food in the hotel is lovely with it being freshly prepared and reasonably priced. The rooms were very spacious and the bathroom great with a proper shower and the beds comfy. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the beach and the beach is lovely but is a little crowded with a lot of sun beds but you’d expect this anywhere. The mosquitos were nothing short of horrendous - we were prepared for this and had brought out the necessary protection but I still ended up with a lot of bites but this is totally not the hotels fault and nothing they could have done but a mosquito screen would have benefitted in our room as we couldn’t leave the door open. All in all this is a lovely little hotel and Alykes is a lovely area but I don’t think we will return and will stick to other areas of the island where we have been before and preferred. …
Nice quiet place with spacious clean and comfortable rooms.Plenty of sunbeds around the pool but not alot of shade.Food and drinks at the bar are very good and reasonable prices, mosquitoes were a problem this year and had to buy a can of fly spray for the room.Supermarket about a 5 minute walk away and well stocked.The family who run the Pothos are very friendly and helpful. The only criticism I have is it needs something going on in the evening as the bar was empty most nights.
Just returned home from a lovely stay at the Pothos apartments in alykes. Rooms a good size, water always hot in shower and clean. Mosquito stopping doors proved essential to stop your room being full of bugs however these were very difficult to close and seemed to be a common issue in most rooms as could hear other people trying to open and close these too. The only downside to the room was the beds, very uncomfortable, could feel springs in mattress, tried turning mattress over and all the slats moved on the bed, new mattresses definitely needed. Pothos swimming pool was lovely size, could have a nice swim, never had problems getting a sun bed, bar reasonably priced. Pothos apartments are in a good location, nice and quiet, approx 10-15 minute walk from main restaurants/shops in alykes. Recommend going to other restaurants on the outskirts of alykes rather than the restaurants in the main road.…
Situated in a smallish town with rural backdrop. A low key town which is relaxing. A bit secluded if you want to get out and about unless you hire a car. Beautiful views overlooking mountains and fields. Short 10 minutes walk to town. Basic accomodation but very clean. Always plenty of sunbeds. Drinks and food at bar reasonable prices. The best thing about this place is that it is so friendly and safe. The staff were genuine and lovely. Being a small place, everybody was friendly without being in your face. I would feel quite happy to stay here as a single person, and there were a few. We all got on great. Apartments with a big heart. The only downside was that the mozzies loved us too! The local tourist train ride was the best trip I have been on in. Book it!
