Draganikos
Ranked #150 of 430 Speciality Lodging in Zakynthos
Reviewed 15 September 2015

Clean basic accommodation in a good location, don't expect to cook, although we managed breakfast and the odd salad in the evening. Most of the time we ate out. Typically Greek, quiet, relaxing and set in lovely gardens with views of farmland and small sea view. No pool or tv but you can use any surrounding hotel facilities providing you buy a drink. Short walk to beach and short walk to restaurants and shops. The owner has limited English and loves it when you try and speak Greek. Love Alykanas, will definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms face the same way, only two floors, all quiet. Ground floor if you have mobility problems.

We love staying here as it ticks so many boxes: location, convenience, cleanliness, views, price, facilities (although fairly basic it's perfect for us). You can walk easily to the beach in 5 minutes or the town in 5 minutes, but without the noise of music to disturb a good night's sleep.

One of the better budget priced holiday accommodation locations in Greece. Very basic but set in wonderful gardens with lovely owners who if you try to make the effort to speak a little Greek become all smiles and can not do enough for you, with advice on attraction locations , eateries , fishing , car hire and public transport.
But do not expect the usual tourist trappings this is after all a working farm with apartments on it, so if you want Bar , Pool & Snack bar go some were else please and leave it to those who appreciate the piece and quiet in a tranquil setting with all the things for a relaxing holiday just a walk from its location.
This is the second time we have stayed here which i think is enough of a recommendation, its very clean, with rooms serviced every other day.
So if you want a true Greek feel to your holiday this is a good place to go on the very commercialized holiday island of Zante

Room Tip: First floor for better views & ground floor for bigger balconies

We recently stayed at the draganikos and although it is in a perfect location & looks beautiful but it is let down by the owners lack of willingness to do the most basic of things.
Upon arrival we didn't even get greeted an elderly gentleman just pointed at a door and said 'uh'.
The apartment was ok. Severely dated, had dirty walls, blown plug sockets & you wouldn't be able to cook toast as the toaster was that dirty. The kettle leaked & the cups provided still had the lips marks on from the previous occupiers.
Anyway knowing what Greece is like you give it a chance.
Then we discovered the towels weren't changed until they can walk on their own, the bedsheets were changed twice in 2 weeks on the main bed. Just once in the children's bed for the whole fortnight!!
The floors never swept.
We were given a quarter of a toilet roll between 4 of us at a time.
We had to use baby wipes. Other guests told us if you want toilet roll you have to pay for it!
If you asked the old Greek lady who owns it for something she just rudely dismisses you & says can't speak English.
It would seem the owner is just after your money. With no customer care. She has cut the service to that of below hostel standard in order to make 100% profit.
All that being said the village is gorgeous, food fantastic, beach stunning. Hire a car as you won't be disappointed with the island.
Just book in at another hotel!!
