Just returned from another lovely holiday at the grape vines apartments (29th July- 12th August 2011). Andy and Miri made our stay as welcoming and relaxing as always, anything that can be done to make you stay even better Andy can't do enough to make all her guests comfortable and happy. The restuarants and shops are just a short walk, the lighting around the apartments is fine, you do not need a torch to see your way back in the dark. The rooms and pool are all kept to a high standard of cleanliness (the pool is crystal clear, aways). Many people that stay once at the Grape vines return year after year after year. We can't wait for 2012, we will defiantly be returning. Thank you once again to Andy and all your staff for another wonderful, relaxing and restful holiday.
Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a weeks stay at the Grapevines in Alykanas and we had the best time ever. We were made to feel very welcome by Antigoni (the owner) and her staff. Our room was really lovely with beautiful views from our balcony. The location was peaceful and quiet but it was a short walk to the bars and restaurants in town. We highly recommend the Mantalena for the bestest Gyros Pittas (for the best price as well - 1.60 eros). Also Antigoni cooks some very reasonably priced meals, a frappe was only 2 euros. The swimming pool was very clean and we spent many hours swimming. The beach was only about a 15 minutes walk away and it was stunning with views out to Kefalonia. We also highly recommend the train trip to see Spiros museum and taverna with copious quantities of free delicious local wine. If we are able to return to Zakynthos we will most definitely be booking to stay at the Grapevines.

In grapevines now. we have a week left. Great bar and bar staff Miri and Andy. crystal clear pool and we are having a great time this year. The appartments are basic but we dont use them often we only use them to sleep and shower in. But the rooms are kept really clean by the cleaner who has a great personality along with all the people that work here, unlike last year. Also the food in the snack bar is great this year and the service is fast

Our first time in Zante and we were very lucky to have chosen the Grapevines,
Hi Jeanette, I have the email for grapevines it is email@example.com or the tel number is 0030 2695083056. We have also atayed at the grapes several times, and are sorry to see they are not in the brochures for next year. hope you have luck booking. regards Sally.
Just got back from another great holiday at the Grapevines. As usual the weather was great and it was lovely to see Roula and Emmi again they were running the bar instead of Christina and George. We were very sad to here that First Choice have dropped the Grapevines from next years brochure especially as Andy has had some new appartments built. Andy is waiting to hear if another company will take them on but nothing has been agreed as yet. If not she is hoping to take direct bookings and her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org for anyone that is interested. I would like to mention Cosy Corner Bar and Restaurant run by Shortie and Jules a great couple. Give them a look (near beach appartments) you wont be disappointed. Good food and good company We had some great nights with them. We will definitely be back next year and hopefully it will be at Grapevines cos we love it
GRAPEVINES ARE NOT IN THE SUNSTART FOR NEXT YEAR, CANT FIND IN ANY OTHER BROCHURES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO BOOK FOR NEXT YEAR.

Just had to send a e-mail to say,we have just got back from the Grapevines last night & had the most fantastic time,although we did not spend much time at pool (cause we love the beach) or the bar,we found the rooms were basic but clean,bed linen & towels changed regularly,plenty of hot water,what more do you need.We loved Vraski,best Restuarant (we thought) but also had good food wherever we ate,the people we met, were lovely Greek & English,spent most of our nights & early mornings at Fever Bar with Julie & Yianni,we are looking to go back to Grapevines end of September,so for all the moaners if they to go to Greece & expect it to be like the UK,don't bother going.I was concerned before we went after reading some of the negative comments about the Grapevines but it just goes to show you need to go & find out for yourself as we all want different things in a holiday,Zante had all we wanted - Relaxation,good food & nice people.
sue/mike,thanks for your help,site really brought us up to date on all the news,we are flying from manchester on sun 20th july hope we don't get any delays(won't hold my breath) peter.
hi peter. we were looking forward to seeing chris and george also. but they have left the grapes now. chris told us last year she would not be there this year as she wanted to stay home with the new baby but she did say george would still be there. must have been a change of plan. anyway dont let this put you off emi and rula are lovely and will look after you. they have run the grapes before with their dad christos a few years ago. we had a brilliant time why we were there and really enjoyed it. oh and bye the way chris had a boy and her and george are over the moon. i hope i have been helpful. anyway have a brilliant holiday. sue. yammas
