Sunbed allocation at Alexander the Great hotel

We are visiting Alexander the Great Hotel next August, and have been reading the reviews since we booked. We were just wondering what everybody means by sunbed allocation- do they allocate you sunbeds without you getting a say when you arrive? Also, do they provide beach towels for you when you're there?

Does the hotel have an entertainment team that spend the day by the hotel and what is the night entertainment like?

Hi Rachie

It's a fantastic hotel - you've made a good choice!

When you arrive, head straight down to see the Pool Attendant and he'll show you which sunbeds are free at that moment in time. You then to choose which ones you want. You can change your mind - we did a few times. If there's a particular spot you want, keep asking the Pool Attendant if anything's free in that area until you get what you want. The main change over days are Wednesdays / Sundays, so you're more likely to get what you want if you ask on these days.

Yes, beach towels are provided by the hotel - they are left in your room.

There were activities laid on during the day but I can't remember what they were as we weren't interested in them . The evening entertainment is geared up to the older guests, e.g. pianists/dancing.

Here's my trip review, if you've not already seen it:


Enjoy! U2fan
