Pool and bar area are lovely but studios very basic , not much in way of cooking utensils. Poor quality cutlery etc. Owner and staff very helpful. Just a short walk into centre and supermarket nearby.?

Only been here 5 days but loving every minute. Wonderful location and great hospitality. Highly recommended. Our host Sia is full of fun and keeps the guests entertained with her sharp wit.
Superb pool. Lovely grounds and all the amenities you need.

Stayed for a week at the end of August and would recommend this small-scale apartment complex to people looking for relaxation around a pretty pool. Our apartment was excellent value for money and as advertised in the brochure and on the website. The studio had a double bed and a single, with a small, basic kitchenette area and clean, tiled shower room. We paid for air-conditioning, which seemed to have quirky connections but did its job. Maid service was fabulous and we got plenty of clean towels and sheets. For us, the Akis Studios were in an ideal location as they are set back from the main resort, with picturesque mountain and country views. They are quiet at night apart from some music from the studios' own bar. A short walk past disused salt flats takes you past a decent supermarket to the strip of shops/bars/ restaurants and to the stunning beach. Alykes resort does have a commercialised centre, but you can also find quiet, traditional tavernas on the beach and up the side roads into the mountains. We did a turtle-spotting boat trip from Laganas, which looked way too busy for my liking (though we did see a turtle, so it was worth it) and enjoyed mixing with locals in Zakynthos town. I would happily return to Alykes and Akis Studios for a hassle-free sunshine break.

We spent two weeks at Akise, booking flights and accommodation as a package through Olympic. It was a bargain and we weren't disappointed. You get a pretty standard room, double bed, shower room/ toilet and kitchenette with a fridge and hob. Yes it's basic, but what else do you want? I have yet to see anything in any of the Greek islands in the price range which is substantially any better.

The pool is good. Never too crowded and you can always get a lounger. Pool bar is great. The bar staff really look after you and are friendly and helpful. Hotel is short walk from the town (max. 10 mins) and there is a supermarket round the corner.

Like a previous contributor, we also noticed the air conditioning and power going off at regular intervals. At the time I thought it was something to do with an electrical fault and thought nothing of it. HOWEVER we later found out that the owner would deliberately cut the power off at quite regular intervals (one night we were awake with our sick daughter and it went off 4 times during the night, for up to an hour each time!). I did wonder at the beginning of the stay why the staff were so insistent that we pay up front for the air con... My advice is to pay at the end when you have had a continuous supply!

Local food in the area is not great - mostly club sandwiches, pizzas and the like. I have had much better food on other islands. Even Greek dishes are not done particularly well. Best food we had was at Paradosiako Taverna 5 minutes walk out of the main town on the way to Alykanas.

The beach at Alykes is absolutely amazing. Very clear and clean and shallow. You can walk out about 300m before it starts getting deep - ideal for young ones. Fishalida at the beach is also good. You can reserve sun loungers the night before to ensure you get a space and they bring drinks and food to the beach for you.
