The 3-star Valais Hotel is situated on Alykanas Beach, just a 5-minute walk from the village centre. Spotless hotel and extremely well maintained. The beds were comfortable, 4 soft bouncy pillows (plus a spare if needed) and the room (2nd floor), simply furnished but with plenty of storage space perfect for our needs. Optional air conditioning at an additional charge (not hidden), but we didn't need it as it was not that hot during the night at the end of August. There is great attention to detail here, eg. light in the wardrobe so this made it easier to see the code buttons on the safe, mosquito net sliding door, mosquito deterrent plug-ins provided as well as bathroom hairdryer and first day toiletries. Towels soft, room cleaned daily, towels every other day or so. Mirrors are in bathroom, wardrobe and above drawers. Table and two plastic chairs on good sized balcony as well as another more comfy chair . View of gardens and partial sea view was lovely. The staff are so accommodating and welcoming at all times. Food is good especially breakfast options and ample as well as being reasonably priced. Cocktails lovely as is the coffee! The beach (which is beautiful and sandy) is on the doorstep with beach butler service all day. Good location for lazy days or as a base to explore the rest of the wonderful island. I would definitely stay here again. If you want 5 star huge hotel luxury, go elsewhere and leave this lovely place for those of us who love it!!
Just 250 metres from Alykanas beach, La Caretta is 1 km from the centre of Alykanas town in Zakynthos. It features an outdoor swimming pool and self-catered accommodation. The beds were comfy, the room large, great rainfall shower, soundproof balcony doors. Staff friendly end helpful. Ideal location. Restaurant was also excellent Would definitely come back to Caretta if we come back to Alykanas

Set in Alikanas, a few steps from Old Alikanas Beach and 400 metres from Rasa Beach, mare di levante offers accommodation with free WiFi, a private beach area, balcony and access to the garden. The staff / owners were exceptionally eager to help with any queries and were very friendly making us feel part of the family, the views were fantastic and picturesque with a daytime restaurant serving good food just a few steps away and access to the beach below. A shop was just a short distance away which provided essentials until we could get into the shopping area about 2 km away, which also had restaurants, supermarkets and provided us with a 25 minute walk to exercise. The studio was great and provided the facilities needed for the short stay together with the brilliant views from the balcony looking out to sea.

Situated 100 metres from Old Alikanas Beach, Photographer's Apartments offers a garden, barbecue facilities and air-conditioned accommodation with a patio and free WiFi. Apartment was very well equipped and tastefully decorated. The view from rooms and balcony was to die for... The owner and his uncle was very friendly and willing to help. We loved everything!!!
Situated 16 km from Zakynthos Town and 47 km from Sami, Anemos Beach House offers accommodation in Alykes. The property features views of the sea and is 21 km from Laganas. The location, the facilities, the hosts, all were amazing!!! It was the most relaxing holiday, with the most beautiful setting right on the beach.
Bel Momento provides accommodation with a bar and free WiFi. There is also a kitchenette in some of the units equipped with a fridge. A car rental service is available at this property. Place a bit outside of the Main Street / city center with amazing staff, very friendly and welcoming. Kitchen is good and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend staying there !
Area is mostly on the flat,all places easily accessible. Along beach road we visited Neraids restaurant and the Mill,other places worth a visit are Olive Tree,La Carretta,Greco's and Mantalena.Lots of watersports on beach.
This was our 3rd visit - lovely little resort with lots of great restaurants/tavernas and bars. Lovely beach and lots of hotels/apartments allow you to use their pools/sun beds if you are buying food and drink with them. Local people very welcoming.
great bars and restaurants all within walking distance of each other. beach is superb and sea is fantastic , you can walk out a long way and it is still shallow. great for kids. Greek people a very friendly and cant do enough for you. Alykes is only a short stroll away.
Loved Alikanas and Alykes. ONLY THING WE DISLIKED very much and would make us not return was the use of the horse and carriages for the tourists. The horses looked very, very tired. Upsetting. Aside from this it was a great resort, but we would not go back because of it.
Alikanas is a quite resorty resort but aimed more at families and older couples than the hectic hedinistic Laganas. As such it has a nightlife and the beach activities you would expect, and the restaurants providing full English breakfasts and grills, Mamma Mia tribute nights, traditional Greek dancers and letterbox red holidaymakers. It's compact and easy to walk around if you're planning a beach holiday. Seemed like many people here were repeat visitors. I thought this wouldn't be my thing but actually it's all very easy going and you can easily find quiet spaces and beaches nearby to do your own thing if you prefer to get away from the crowds. Snorkelling is great, the sea like a warm bath, lots of marine activities from SUPs to boat trips. Solo travellers are less well catered for both with the usual single supplements and particularly food wise where an 'appetizer' is really meant for sharing! Cycling seems popular in Zakynthos, and hiring a bike is a great way to nip around for groceries or to travel a bit further afield - can even cycle to Shipwreck and back in a day (I didn't - far to hot and uphill!). Culturally/historically there's not a lot to do, it's not that sort of island, and the earthquake of 1953 means it's grown as a specifically tourist focused resort town. Food and a Mythos beer at Shoestrings was good (note - closes quite early - by 6pm) and Epsilon and Vrisaki also very good places to eat and have a cocktail. Both bakeries serve up quality food. The Spar in town is the place to go for stocking up, the mini-marts are quite pricey.
Zante Flower is at the crossroads right in the heart of the town. The best restaurant. La Caretta, is directly across the street. The best bar for entertainment, The Mill Bar, is at the bottom of the street on the beach. It has two bars ans a pool and is family run by Spiros and Julie.

Andreas and family are fantastic,always available if needed. The view from the apartments are out into beautiful olive groves and countryside and have a wonderful sunrise accompanied by the sound of the odd 🐓 rooster in the distance. Very reasonably priced supermarket on site A short stroll to the beach by cutting through Alykanas beach village, Alykanas beach hotel or Ammo beach bar. 20 metres away from the Excellent Bonkers bar who have a great pool area, give it a try, Pav and Karen are the owners and will look after you.

The house is very clean and has a wonderfull large balcony which looks out over the suberb blue sea of Zakynthos. A small and quiet beach with crystal clear blue water is only 100m away. We loved the outside douche behind the house! Thea's house is located in a more quiet part of Alykanas. There is a minimarket and some bars nearby. If you like more entertainment it's only 2-3km away.

The room is great! Big, clean and very close to many supermarket and restaurants. The kitchen is equipped with what you need (nothing more and nothing less). They give you a good discount to eat at their restaurant downstairs and the food is fantastic. Walking distance to the Alykanas beach. Would recommend this place to anyone that is interested in going to Zante.

Pristine apartments & villas, with lovely pool area and bar. Close to the beach and shops but secluded enough to provide a very relaxed atmosphere.

The hosts of Pyrgos Zante are an amazingly hospitable family who ensured our trip to Zakynthos would be an unforgettable one. The house is exactly as advertised and has everything you would need for a self catered holiday. The location is far away enough from the town noise to be nice and quiet at night, but only 5 minutes drive to the main shops and restaurants in Alynkanas. The rooms are very clean and the cleaning lady does a really thorough job, much better than the quick sheet changes you would get at a typical hotel. The island water system is non drinkable, but a large bottle of water and some snacks are supplied so your first night will be carefree even if you have a late landing like we did. Try and get a chance to spend some time with the hosts if you can and you’ll discover true Greek hospitality. Thank you for an amazing stay Denise, Bobby and Thanos. Hope to see you again on our anniversary.
