We decided to go here after the reviews we saw - we have been to Greek islands before and know that the accomodation can be basic - we don't mid that, but it should at least be clean, and Plessas Palace was not clean. There was 7 in our party, so we had 3 rooms, and all 3 were poor.
I have a 13 months old daughter, and when we were arrived we were shown to a family room, and were told that we were going to have to change rooms for our last night due to another booking. Not too bad but a bit of a pain with packing and moving everything. We had 2 bedrooms, each with 2 single beds, and a small shower room/toilet. Cooking facilties were a microwave oven with 2 electric hobs. The plates, glasses, knoves and forks etc were all pretty dirty. There were cobwebs in the corners of the room, the shower room wasn't clean. There was mould in there too, and when you took a shower, the shower tray filled up really quickly so u had to be fast, and even so water leaked everywhere. The shower cubicles are tiny! It wasn't a great start.
My wife's parents were on the top floor. Their fridge was filthy, with what looked like grease all down the front, and cigarrette ends on the floor. They ended up cleaning their room themselves. My father in law also went and bought some wire to keep the shower head from falling off, and their shower room flooded all the time too. Aswell as this they had a really loud humming noise coming from the roof spac above them and had to buy ear plugs to sleep. Also the kettle in their room was broken exposing the electrical wires inside, but when my father in law took it the reception, Nicos just pushed it back together and asked if we wanted it back.
The other room we had wasn't too bad, but the shower room again was pretty poor in the same ways as the others.
As said earlier, we had to move for the last night, the room was slightly better but again the shower room/toilet was mouldly and needed a bit of work.
In our week here, I only saw one cleaner, which isn't enough for a property of this size. I think our rooms were cleaned once (not very well though), at which time the beds and towels were changed, not enough in my opinion.
Alykanas, and the neighbouring Alikes are great places for a holiday though, and we would definitely return there. There are lots of taverna's and bars, and we had really nice food nearly everywhere we ate. Also if you get a chance check out the greek night at the hotel koukkounaries (sp?) - 14 Euros for an all you can eat buffet (grilled chicken, pork kebabs, greek meatballs, sausage, pasta, salad, tzatziki, pitta, ice cream and wine etc) and greek dancing, we had a really good night.
