Alykes Garden Village
Ranked #3 of 8 Alykes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2017

We've just return from two lovely weeks in Alykes Garden Village. It is situated 15 mins stroll from the Main Street. There was only one pit stop on the journey house at an English run bar but that wasn't a problem as when you returned you can pop into Oscars bar situated on site. We stayed in a studio which was modern with a recently renewed bathroom. The staff were all very friendly and nothing was a problem for them. The apartments and ground were maintained well, given a daily cleaning.

Room Tip: We were located behind the snack bar but no think it will matter where your located.

We returned to Alykes Garden village for our summer holidays as we knew it would still be amazing. Jimmy & Soula are tremendous hosts and there rooms have recently been renovated to modern high standards. The pool,bar,breakfast & snack areas are spotlessly clean and never too loud when music is on. Wi-fi also great around pool area.
This is THE perfect place to relax & unwind with friends & family. It's only a 10 minute stroll to village centre and beaches. Every bar, restaurant & cafe are all well run in Alykes and the food gets better & better in every restaurant (so does the local vino) the beach is well maintained and serviced & the water stunning and calm for anyone any age.
Garden village is perfect for any type of vacation. We hired a car (Jimmy got us a great deal) and drove easily around the entire island visiting beaches, coves, mountains, villages, view points & never had any issues with other road users.
Navagio ( ship wreck cove)
Porto Roxa (swimming & diving)
Porto Liminoas (swimming & diving)
Skinari lighthouse & windmills
Volimes (turtle breeding beach)
Zante town
Xigia (hot springs smelly beach)
Kerri ( lighthouse, view point & tallest Greek flag in the world)
Bochali (view over Zante town)
Blue caves ( views & swim, dive)
these are only a few of the many places to try out and all have fantastic bars, cafes & restaurants to lunch or dine.
Jimmy's place makes all places accessible and his knowledge of the island is great.
If your looking to stay somewhere clean, relaxing, we'll run and comfortable then don't pass Alykes Garden Village.
We can't say enough great things about A G V and we are quite fussy. We will return again & again
Try it for yourselves, you won't be disappointed.
Soula even got me gluten free corn flakes for breakfast and g/f options are on the pool bar menu.
5star all the way.

First time staying with Jimmy since he was recommended to us,and we were not disappointed. I have to say Jimmy is the nicest and most helpful man you could ever want to meet and deal with, nothing was too much trouble, the complex was lovely and clean at all times, the staff were ever so helpful and again nothing to much trouble, booked direct through Jimmy and was collected and delivered to the airport in person. Aircon in the room was very welcome due to the heat, pool lovely and deep and clean amazing time lovely people many thanks Jimmy Soula and staff

Stayed here for ten nights in August. Lovely apartments outside the village of alykes (about a ten to fifteen minute walk). If you turn left out of the apartments you can reach a cheaper supermarket and nice bakery after a ten minute walk. Jimmy and family very friendly and the rooms were nice. We stayed in room 4 the only fault being the beds are very hard. The pool was great too. They have Karaoke twice a week and a Greek night on a Friday. Special mention for Nancy behind the bar, lovely lady and good craic!

I would say this villa is perfect for families and would definitely return!!!

We have just returned from a fantastic two week break in these beautiful apartments. The whole complex is exceptionally clean and the gardens and pool area are very well maintained. Jimmy and Soula who run the complex are polite, friendly and very helpful. Our studio slept two adults and two children comfortably and we were lucky enough to have two balconies so always had a place to relax in the shade. Air-con,in our opinion,was essential and at 10 euros per day it was money well spent. The self catering aspect was very basic indeed but we ate out most of the time, only eating breakfast and the odd lunch in the room. There is no cupboard space at all to store food. The pool snack bar however provides tasty food all day every day. There's a good choice and decent portion sizes. We'd have spent more time here but unfortunately we couldn't always get beds by the pool so spent a lot of time at the beach. This is my only negative. Towels were on the beds overnight. In fact one particular family left their towels on the beds for an entire 2weeks!!! Yes all day everyday, all night every night!!! And to top it off, they didn't venture down to the pool til 3pm most days and even then didn't use all six beds they'd claimed! When we did get beds by the pool-both the pool and snack bar were excellent-Very very busy but it was peak season. It was a long, hot walk to the beach/Main Street/nearest shop but we expected this as we'd read other reviews. There is nothing near the complex which is why the small onsite shop can charge what it wants. Water however was 2euros for 6 large bottles. Oscars, the night bar, which opens at 7pm is fab and Nancy, the lady who runs it is great. No cocktails though but plenty of everything else. Overall we'd certainly recommend this place as long as you don't mind walking and a deep pool. We had a fantastic holiday!
Two tips: there is a cheaper supermarket/bakery turning left out of the apartments it's still a good 10 min walk and you're heading away from the Main Street.
Also visit the water village on a Sunday. It was empty-no queuing for any slide at all all day. Loads of beds. Excellent day out.

Nice enough hotel, nice pool and bar. Nice and friendly staff. Rooms had electric kettle, 2 ring job, fridge & toaster but no hairdryer.
Air con @ 10 Euro a day a must and safety deposit box 21 euro a week.
We spent most of our days at the beach as people were putting their towels out the night previous which is not on, but nothing done about it. This was my biggest issue!! Walk to beach was at least 15 mins. Not much around hotel - need to walk to Main Street 15 mins away ( just before beach).
Walk to beach is only part pathway and you need to walk on side of road in places.
