Whether you want a peaceful place to relax, or long to get out and explore, the Grapevine Studios are a great choice. The complex is just a ten-minute walk from Alykanas, with its shops, bars and tavernas. As for the nearest beach, it’ll take you just over 20 minutes to walk there, but it’s only a five-minute drive away if you hop in a taxi.
Guests here tend to spend most of their time by the swimming pool. It’s a large, rectangular number flanked by loungers, parasols and chunky palms. There’s a bar out here, too, which is the setting for a weekly barbecue. Plus, you can grab snacks from here throughout the day.
The studios are laid out in pretty pastel-coloured blocks complete with black wrought-iron balconies and terracotta rooftops. Inside, they all have kitchenettes, so self-catering is easy. Plus, nice-to-haves come in the form of TVs and balconies with views of the surrounding countryside.

After deciding on a last minute girly get away with my mum (mum 55, me 27) to catch some early pre-season sun in late May, we came across The Grapevines Hotel - and I'm so glad we did! Andy the owner made us welcome as soon as we stepped off the coach. The staff were all friendly, cheerful and helpful in recommending things to do and see. We went on the wine trip on the train to Spiro's vineyard - this is a must, and who needs an excuse to sample some wine! We left laden down with wine and the best olive oil I have tasted. A wonderful scenic way to see the island and see some of the history of the area in the museum. Andy clearly works incredibly hard and takes great pride in the hotel. The staff are wonderful and you can enjoy a peaceful day by the pool, a lovely mezze platter or cocktail or home-cooked specialities in the evening. If you want to venture further, there are heaps of restaurants offering some delicious food and entertainment. We took walk down to some of the more hidden beaches off the beaten track which provided some stunning views. A real find and pleasure to stay. Wonderful people and wonderful holiday, thank you!More

Me and my partner absolutely loved our stay here. Andy, the owner was so friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were basic but spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, including amazing views over the mountains. The bar food was good and very reasonably priced. It is also in an ideal location in my opinion, set back from the main strip of tavernas so it is very quiet at night time. The pool never seemed busy, I think four people in it at the same time was the most I saw the whole week there! It is also a great walk to the beach, me and my partner walked a bit further than the main tourist beach most days and found some beautiful coves which we had all to ourselves at times. Certainly not for people who want to stay somewhere lively, but personally I prefer quieter places so it was exactly what I wanted. Overall I can't recommend it enough and would return tomorrow if I could!More

Hello we have just returned from the Grapevines and really enjoyed the stay. The owners are excellent, upfront and to the point, the location of the Hotel is ideal also. Comments regarding cleaning are justified as the toilet bin should be emptied more often. If you book with Thomson an upgraded room make sure you recieve this as we didn't and we did get a refund so not a real issue appart from being placed in one of the two smallest rooms and it appeared that the upgraded rooms were issued to returning guests (I might be imagining this). Would I return? Yes I might go back next year but there is still a lot of world for us to see. Would I recommend it? Yes Although minor niggles I did enjoy this holiday.More

chill out week
Just back from a weeks stay at the Grapevines. Lovely little complex, quiet and peaceful and never a problem getting a sunbed by the pool. Although the rooms were nice and comfortable we were a little disappointed with the cleaning of the rooms. In the week we were there our room was "cleaned" twice with a clean top sheet and clean towels once. This I can accept, but as many of you who travel to Greece will know, the toilet paper is put into a bin in the bathroom, and unfortunately our bin was only emptied 3 times throughout the whole week, the last time being Friday. This meant the bin was not emptied for 4 days which I find unacceptable, especially in the heat. We were not the only ones with this problem, a couple in the next room to us had the same problem and another couple we spoke to had not had their room cleaned or clean bedding and towels for 8 days. The Grapevines is a lovely little place but needs to get this problem sorted before it gets any worse.More
Another fabulous stay.
Just back from a glorious stay once again in this lovely little complex. Andi continues to please all the guests with her caring positive attitude especially to the many elder guests. On this occassion two lovely people were celebrating their Golden wedding anniversary during their stay and invited all guests at the Grapevines to join them in their celebrations. Unfortunately a pre planned meet up with resident friends of ours on the same night prevented us from attending and we felt aweful refusing the wonderful gesture off Andy and his wife Margaret. We nipped to the bar on the night for a quick drink before going off out to see that Andi and family had made the most super effort to ensure that the golden couple had a night to remember which I'm sure they did. Nothing at all has changed here and the golden oldie music played during the long hot afternoons was again right up our street. Poolside food and drinks remain excellent value and food is of a very good standard compared to other places in the resort and Colin provided excellent speedy service with food piping hot and well presented. Mimosa is the most hard working cleaner and never ceases to smile as she works the studious and grounds spic and span, she's a real gem indeed and a credit to the team there. Andi's young sons continue to grow and Kosta the eldest is just so much fun challenging me to arm wresting etc and I'm sure in a few years time he'll eventually get the better of me one day. I've got to mention "Geordie's" Mark and Debbie who we got on with really well with sharing many humourous stories and one very boozy night. Please Grapevines stay just the way are your just perfect for us. Big Tony & Christine Read (Cardiff S. Wales)More
