My husband and I visited the White House 4th Septmber for two weeks. It is in a very convenient position for the taverna's and the shops.Nothing is too far away.The owners were very friendly. The pool was lovely and there were plenty of sunloungers.Our room was cleaned every day.There was a small kitchen area,just about enough room to make a sandwich.The towels and bed linen were changed three times during our two week stay.There are only two bath towels supplied so I would advise to take a couple of hand towels from home.Our balcony was lovely although the pine trees in front do tend to encourage the wasps and mozzies.The only thing I did not like were the very hard beds and pillows but it's all a matter of choice. The beach is only a few minutes away,the sea is very shallow,ideal for children.There are watersports on the beach.There are plenty of lovely taverna's,our favourite was The Appollon,the Cosy Corner is nice as well but you have to book to be sure of getting a table.There are lots of horse and carriages going up and down the strip from about 4-30 till late.There is a nice walk along the canal to Alykes,just go through the Alykanas Beach hotel car park.You can also get the small train from Alykanas that takes you on a scenic tour or you can go on an evening tour visiting a taverna that is included in the price. We have been visiting Zante for thirty years and have usually gone to Tsilivi,it is now very busy so in future we will be going to Alykanas,maybe not the White House but that's only because of the hard beds,if that's not a problem for you I would definitely recommend them.More
A wonderful place to stay.
Our studio was very clean and comfortable.The pool is a really good size and very well maintained by Kostas.Pavlos and Karen are great hosts and extremely helpful.I highly recommend the breakfasts especially the greek one.The bar at night is comfortable and friendly,we were royally looked after by Anya the waitress.An Ideal place for a friendly and enjoyable holiday.More
As Good As Ever
We've already written several reviews of the White House and because it is every bit as good as it has always been, this one will be a bit shorter! The White House is a jewel in the crown of Alykanas in Zante, Karen and Pavlos run it to perfection, with great assistance from Vicky and Demitri. The accommodation is fairly straightforward but everything is spotlessly clean thanks to Camelia's untiring efforts, and everything that needs to function does so.
If there was a general moan, it was to do with the fact that wifi within the entire Alykanas area is exceptionally poor and access is incredibly hit and miss. It has been getting worse year-on-year and the operators need to invest in upgrading the signal in that part of the island as it is not capable of handling the sheer number of devices used nowadays.
Times may not be easy at the moment but replacement of faulty sun umbrellas is long overdue and it is unlikely the fence at the back of the pool would withstand much force. However, you can almost forgive these details when the pool is so stunningly good and permanently sparkling clean, the bar and the food are top notch and the fact that we see familiar faces amongst the guests every year says everything about the White House.
We have already booked for 2016!More
All you could ask for in basic accomodation
The units are placed well back from the cul-de-sac road and so were quiet.
Over looked the pool but we wee there out of season and the large pool was virtually unused.
Run by a Brit+Greek and so there is plenty of helpful advice.More
