Got home on 22 nd September after 2 weeks. Its changed hand the owners daughter runs it now a it's dead at the bar of an evening. The good thing about it is the new cleaner she is very good.
I got back on Sunday 25th September after 2 lovely weeks at the Lofos the big improvement was aircon. The whole place has been re-decorated. But the cleaner leaves a lot to be desired which is a shame one day she only changed the rubish bag on another she left the floor so wet I skated across the room. Breakfast really set you up for the day.
We are sorry to have to report that after having spent a week at the Lofos that we were really disappointed with the place. When we finally arrived after been delayed for several hours we went straight to bed, however we didn't get to sleep for very long when the loud music coming from the pool bar woke us up. There was food etc in the cupboard and fridge from the last occupants so as to weather the room had been cleaned prior to our arrival is questionable, the bath and sink were also dirty, so we asked to be moved to the other building, which the rep sorted out for us. In the second room the standard of cleanse rose slightly, however the room flooded every time the bath was emptied, this wasn't too much of problem except that the towels were never changed, I did however find clean towels on the washing line. The day the cleaner was in I had a look at the cleaning stuff to find something to clean the bath myself , all she had was a very dirty bucket of water and a very big smile ( lovely lady) . We did purchase some cleaning equipment and cleaned the cups and plates ourselves. The walls of all the apartments were smeared with dead incests and blood from previous mosquito attacks. The balconies were never cleaned the whole time we were there and another resident said she'd been there 2 weeks and hers hadn't been cleaned either, the flies and ants were gathering. They electrics were a bit frail, our light socket was held in by a pen, the bedside light flickered all the time and one of the plug sockets was hanging off the wall. The pool area was ok, but a charge of 1.50 for the sun bed cushion caused a lot of people to go out for the day, the pool filter was only turned on once the whole time we were there and there were a lot of incests floating in the pool all the time. We didn't eat at the bar at all as we didn't trust their hygiene standards but others did, two of them were ill while we were there, but the local doctor diagnosed them with a gastric illness. Our flight was leaving at 5 in the morning and we were been picked up at 2, we asked for a price to keep the room on and were quoted 35 for the pleasure, we declined and moved in with some friends for a couple of hours. Some people staying at the lofos had stayed a couple of years ago and said it was cleaner and a lot better them, its like the place has been totally neglected for the last few years ......

Just got back from staying at the Lofos for a week and its a lovely place. Elias and his wife are very friendly and the rooms are nice and spacious and clean. The pool bar offers great food at very reasonable prices. Didnt spend much time in the pool as it was a bit too cold for me this time of year but its a real sun trap for getting a tan.

What a cracking holiday! Hello to Dave, Jackie and Aiden who stayed at the Lofos hope you had a great hol! If anyone is considering visiting Alykes I would deffo reccommend the Lofos, food and drink is excellent only prob really is there is no air con and the cleaner is rubbish! Illyas the barman was a top bloke and his wife is great cook. Hope to see everyone again!
A great location, but boy do they need to understand the meaning of cleaning!
pauline yes there are dividers between balconys hope this helps
|on the first floor does it have any dividers between studios on the balcony...thank you.|

We will be staying at Lofos this July. We have visited Zakynthos three times in the past, but this is our first time at Alykes. If anyone is staying at Lofos in the early season, could you please leave comments about what we may find, such as the quality of the pool and if Air Con is available. Or maybe a contact number or email address. Thanks.
hi ya joolz how are you all not sure what its like where you are but we have patio doors open like to say its like being at the lofos but no ,but i am in shorts with a beer though
Sorry but think the house is mine as have just spent my third holiday at Lofos. Hope you are well Kate and Steve, we enjoyed our 2nd week after you'd gone, weather stayed hot so spent plenty of time in the pool and the sea. Although it all seems a long while ago now that Autumn is here, still there's always next year......
Hi Joolz, it's good to hear from you, we had a really good holiday too 11 out of 10, want to go back asap.
Sorry there isn't any air con at the Lofos, but they do have fans that you can hire on a weekly basis i think they charge about 12 euros per week. We were there for 2 weeks in August the best holiday We've ever had i'm trying to book up for next year! Kate
