These family-friendly apartments come with a laid-back pool scene and a reputation for first-rate home-cooking.
These bright, traditional-looking studios are only a 10-minute walk from the shops and tavernas in Alykanas. Ten minutes more will get you to the nearest beach – a sandy number that shelves gently into the sea.
The complex has a great pool. It comes with panoramic countryside views and a shallow children’s section. The neighbouring bar, meanwhile, serves home-made dishes, from British favourites to Greek classics.

Stayed at the Grapevines from 10-24 August. Been visiting Alykanas for some years now, but our first time here. We were over in May for a week staying elsewhere, and, having already booked for August, called in for a chat with Miri re rooms. In August we travelled as a couple during week 1. In week 2 our daughter and 3 friends arrived post A level results for a chill out week before Uni. Following Miri's advice in May, we e mailed Andi re rooms - didn't hear back but not to worry, as on arrival, she had sorted it all. We had a rather small room at the back of the bar facing out over the vineyards, All fine if a wee bit cramped at times. I should say that we asked to be accommodated separately from the girls and so probably restricted Andi's options. The girls got a great deal with two large adjacent rooms. Facilities basic, rustic and close to countryside. Glad to report that the princesses did "get" Greek life, and had a lovely time. Poolside really tranquil. Andi cannot do enough for her guests - didn't meet her husband, but the girls did as he offered them a lift down to Laganas when they visited for a night out! We ate in the bar a couple of times, and food was lovely. This place is excellent if you have a realistic review of a Greek island and don't expect a 4 star hotel for guest house money, which, sadly some folk in resort seemed to. We loved it, and would go back tomorrow - might try for one of the bigger rooms next time just to make perfect even better! Couldn't thank Andi with a hug on our last morning as I had been stricken with the 24 hour bug going around and felt pretty awful... I send a virtual hug via TA!More

Great Greek escape
Myself and my wife stayed at Grapevines in July for two weeks, and yes its basic but its Greece thats what you expect, the room was clean with a nice balcony overlooking the pool, Andi was a great host making sure your holiday was OK, just far enough away from the main road where the bars and Tavernas are located, if you want a nice peaceful holiday in Zakynthos this is just the place, would go again in the future.More

Sorry it's taken soooo long to write this. We enjoyed a fabulas 2 weeks here back in June 14. There's a great atmosphere created by the whole family who run the hotel. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and very clean. The food is very good and the bear is also very good. Many thanks Yiamas WilliamMore

Yet another brilliant holiday
We started coming 8 years ago . Once again a brilliant holiday thanks to Andi and Kyriakos and their wonderful family and staff.. Met old and new friends and must have been relaxed as planning to bring our 14 year old granddaughter next year. Wonderful but should we be sharing this beautiful place ! I said ideal for families but couples and friends and solos evenMore

A Great Place to Stay, Rural But Still Close To All You Need, With Brilliant Staff
We were recommended the Grapevines by good friends who thought that it's setting , staff and locality would be to our liking....we were not disappointed ... On arrival we were shown a room that did not quite meet our requirements...no problem... The alternative was just right. Rooms are typical Greek , very functional , very clean, with just what we needed for our stay. Mimosa the cleaner was brilliant, always a smile, and her standards were top notch. Miri who cleans the pool and helps to cook and prepare good value food was friendly and helpful with his suggestions of what to do and where to go. We were the only "New" guests, all other rooms taken by people who seemed to have visited numerous times. What about the boss ,Andy...were to start, the owner who just wants to make sure that your stay is 10 out of 10! The Saturday weekly barbi was good and the Thursday home cooked Mousaka one week and Stiffado the next together with a desert great. A good time to meet up with other guests. My wife a vegetarian was well catered for with a special Mousaka . The bar staff very friendly and helpful. Clean pool and well kept loungers and garden areas A 5 minute walk to the nearest Supermarket and Taverna, 10 to the main centre, 10 to the nearest beach....wonderful. Needless to say we would recommend The Grapevines for a stay..so much so we have already booked for 2015..... Looking forward to the return in September next year...Thanks again Andy and family...More
