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 in a peaceful spot, even though they're just a five-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.
These studio apartments come with a balcony offering that extra space outdoors. You'll have a kitchenette where you can make quick snacks and meals plus air-conditioning*. There’s room for 3 with a double bed plus 1 extra bed.

A return to alykanas after many years and I am still thinking why did I ever stop going. The main reason for my reluctance to return were the beach developments which i think are called the alykanas village a blot on the landscape if ever there was one.
The Grapevines was a step back to the way I remember the old days of island hopping Greece with a few drachma in the pocket and hosts that went the extra mile just because that is what greek people do. Do not get me wrong the grapevine is not the stand in the back yard under an oildrum to shower it is very comfortable and very clean and well maintained. The pool area and bar are just the job with good value food and drink. The apartments are set away from the main town and down a lane which makes it feel rural without it really being more than 5 minutes from the nearest taverna and bars plus the supermarket. The beach is a short walk with a choice of 2 ways to go on the flat and the other with a slight incline no problem to any reasonably fit person. At the time of my visit the sunbeds were free of charge on the beach a bonus!.
And no review of the grapevine can be complete without well deserved praise for Andi and her family and staff. She made us welcome from the minute the coach stopped at the gate. Her english is excellent and font of knowledge on all things you would need to know. An oasis of peace in the encroching world of all inclusive and fast food joints.
My personnel view is that the grapevine is more suited to the more mature holiday maker who just wants to relax and enjoy the greek sun and partake of the wonderful relaxed eating habits of the greek people.
Would I return, try and stop me!!!.More
Superb family run hotel. Peaceful Relaxing and comfortable atmosphere enjoyed by everyone. Lovely walk Only 5 minutes from the main town with plenty of restaurants and bars. Thank you Andi and the boys for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful , Wonderful , Wonderful
........in 3 words that sums up our second visit to this hotel, and it will not be the last as its booked for 2016!
Andi and her family with the help of some dedicated staff keep the rooms and hotel facilities in first rate order. We feel that we are not just treated as customers but friends. In fact during our stay it was one of her sons birthdays and the family had a bar- ba-que to celebrate. We had been out for the evening and on our return were invited to join the group.
A couple of days a week Andi puts on Greek food and a bar-ba-que well worth attending. My wife is a vegetarian and Andi always puts together something special for her. One day there was a knock on the door and Andi presented Ginette with yet another wonderful dish.
Mimosa cleans the rooms and always has a smile, Emmi is behind the bar at certain times, and Elphie helps in the kitchen and all continually want to put the guests first.
As its name implies , the Hotel is surrounded by vineyards , and it was harvest time during our visit, we really enjoyed seeing this being done.
A 10 minute walk, maximum ,to a good selection of tavernas and restaurants in the main part of the town. A choice of supermarkets is available and a couple of bakers .
All in all , for us , a great place to stay that seems to have a very high number of return guests that says it all.
Thanks again Andi see you 2016.More
Total relaxation in perfect surroundings
We stayed here the last 2 weeks in September and have never felt so relaxed and at home on holiday before. Andi, her family and the entire team at Grapevines are so friendly and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble. The rooms and entire hotel are kept spotlessly clean with towels and bedding changed regularly.
It's a short walk to a selection of restaurants and the beautiful beach.
We never book the same place twice but we have already booked for September next year - can't wait!More
Wonderful family run place
This is my 3rd visit to the Grapevine. Very clean, relaxing and friendly. Andi and her lovely family work very hard to make your stay special, the pool side bar is open until the last guest has left. The beach is a good walk but nice when you get there 7 euros for bed and umbrella per day. 5 minute walk and lots a lovely restaurants and shop. We had 2 weeks and will be going back.More
