Grapevines Studios  


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.

Fantastic place to stay

We have been here for 3 days and wish we could just move in and live here! Pool is great if you just want to relax. Ideally situated for Alykanas and her beaches. Andi could not be a better host. She is brilliant! Nothing is too much trouble. What a woman!More

Nice hotel, terrible attitudes.

Loved the hotel, location was nice, rooms were clean and air conditioning worked a treat, the hotel was fully booked but never seemed overly busy pool was clean as was the area around the pool, ate at the hotel a few nights nothing special but the food was good. Prior to arriving we had emailed the hotel to advise our flight wasn’t leaving until late in the evening on the day we were to check out and wanted to book the room for a another night, we received a reply saying they would sort it when we got their, on our first day we advised again we wanted to book the room for an extra night and were told this would get sorted later in the week. Pretty much every time we asked we were put off and put off, so eventually we asked the Thompson rep to try and sort something for us he found a local apartment for us and another couple who were returning home on the same flight, on the day we were checking out the owner of the grapevines was very annoyed that we had booked somewhere else and we tried to explain that she never gave us any faith that we would be able to stay another night as she always put us off with some excuse so we booked elsewhere. Her attitude all week had been friendly and caring but after this exchange she changed and was rather rude about the whole situation, the last thing we wanted to be doing on our holiday was running around chasing up someone to sort accommodation. Several couples during the week were in the same situation as us and one night I even witnessed a couple sleeping on the sun loungers awaiting their late pick up, which we were not prepared to do, other than our final impression of the owner the holiday was great.More

Repeat business from us, we have stayed here two years running and are looking to book again for next year. Good standard of accomodation of the studio type. Rooms and communal areas were kept clean as was the pool, which is of a good size with plenty of sunbeds. Nice little bar serving drinks and food, good breakfasts and at good prices. 2 for 1 on cocktails and spirits between 18:00 and 20:00. Very welcoming atmosphere, the owner Andi and her staff and family do all they can to make your stay a good one. In a quiet location which on first arriving looks in the middle of nowhere but is in fact only a 5 minute walk away from the main street with all the bars and shops you'll need. I find this little place irresistable and would recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing Greek island break.More

Good location and friendly but needs some TLC

The Grapevines is in a nice location. The family who run it are very friendly. The bar is a central focal point where you can meet people and there is a snack menu and happy hour. The apartments were kept very clean by the maid service but the towel replacement was a bit erratic. The accommodation itself was really need of a bit of an uplift. Our fridge was painted white to hide the age and underlying rust and the ice box cover was broken. The cupboards were musky with a mouldy smell. The air conditioning rattled away. I suppose you expect basic in Greece but this still felt it needed a refurb and lick of paint. In summary this is a nice friendly place in a good location with a good bar service, but could do with an accommodation refresh (at least for our room).More
