Stayed 9th - 16th October - unfortunately the weather was not great with a lot of rain and storms. The hotel itself is quite nice, with most rooms surrounding the pool which is large compared to a lot of Greek hotels but it was very cold. Rooms large but basic - very tiny tv with very limited English channels. Food choice limited and very basic and repetitive and sometimes luke warm. Drinks not bad. Staff friendly. Nightly basic entertainment i.e. bingo or quiz. As the season was almost over that was about all that happened whilst we were there. When the sun came out (not very often) it was great but not a lot to do otherwise, Alykanas shops and restaurants were closing for the season hence a nice walk into the town (10 minute stroll) did not provide any enthusiasm. Beach 15 minute brisk walk - narrow but long strip of sand/shingle with a few pedalos and sunbeds. I guess if the sun had shone it would have looked a bit prettier but we usually love the beach but didnt bother this time. NO POOL TOWELS. Plenty of mozzies. Went on a boat trip to shipwreck cove and the blue caves. Nice turquoise water at shipwreck cove but difficult to get into the water to swim as lots of sharp stones and strong undertow. Caves were not visably blue from the boat. Hired a car - haggle for a good price. Nicest place to visit is the turtle hatching beach in the south - cant remember the name but began with a G and it also had a FREE turtle rescue centre to visit next to a large taverna. 10 euros for a safe (non refundable) Aircon free. Plug for fridge chargeable - we didnt bother. Internet area at charge with library for books to borrow. Lots of wild cats and dogs roaming around. Nice break but don't think we will return.
