We stayed for a week at the Akis Studios in Alykes at the end of August and had a wonderful holiday. We stayed in room 20, which was a self catering apartment set slightly away from the pool and bar. You could still see the pool/bar area from our balcony and was literally a 2 minute walk away. The apartment was very clean - maid came every day to clean floor and empty bins. Towels and bedding were changed every 3 days I think. Really comfortable double bed and pillows - the best we've ever had on holiday! Nice balcony area which table and chairs. Even had electric kettle and mugs which isn't normal for Greece, but there was also two electric rings to cook on. Fairly basic kitchen utensils, but we ate out everyday and what was provided was more than sufficient for what we needed. Fridge worked well and wasn't noisy. Bathroom consisted of toilet, shower and sink. Drain in middle of floor which was good because even though there was a shower curtain the water went everywhere.
Double glazed patio doors and shutters were really good, blocked out light and noise - very quiet area so no noise anyway. Only downside was the main door to the apartment was half glazed and there was no shutter for this which meant as soon as the sun came up, the sun came in and there was no way to block this out.
Nice size pool and large bar area. Lots of sun beds available, although we mainly went to the beach and only used the pool a couple of times.
Excellent location in Alykes. Literally a five minute walk to the beach through the salt flats. Lots of wild birds to see on the salt flats! Fantastic sandy beach and the gorgeous sea. Supermarket about five minutes walk away and about 10 minutes walk into the centre. We will definitely come back to Alykes and stay at the Akis Studios.
