“BRILLIANT-BRILLIANT-BRILLIANY”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Just back following a weeks stay at the Valais. There really is just one word that sums this hotel up - BRILLIANT.

Nothing at all is too much trouble for katrina, her family and staff. They go out of their way to ensure your stay is the best possible. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean and in a perfect position (on the beach). We had room 207, which was overlooking the road and the beach, with the sun in the afternoon and was just perfect for us. From the hotel there are some lovely walks and the village centre is just a few yards away. During our stay we looked at most of the hotels both in Alikanas and Alikes but to us there was not one as nice as the Valais. If you like the beach, a clean and comfortable hotel with good service together with all the amenities plus a fabulous pool, then the Valais is the one for you. We will definitely be back. Thank you Katerina and all at the Valais for a wonderful week.

This is the second year running my wife and i have returned to the superb Valais Hotel .... from the staff to lots of familar faces of guests/now friends we met again from last year it was superb. There is nothing to much for the staff to do for you. Its a great location right on the beach and is a greatr place to eat and drink. All the meals are superb, breakfast, lunch and evening meals. The staff, Katerina, Julie, jimmy, michael and Michela at the bar and George and wayne on the beach all great, not forgetting MAMA the boss all there to make your holiday great...well unfortunately Katerina i'll see you all again next year....

This was our second visit, the first a package deal, this time booking direct with the hotel

You could not wish for a better position, right next to the beach and a short walk to the main town with a good selection of restaurants (in two visits still not tried them all).

We were allocated a room over looking the pool & sea, we had requested a room which received the sun on the balcony in the evenings (over looking the road) so were well pleased with the room allocated.

Good points:

All areas kept very clean, rooms cleaned daily

Good selection for breakfast (try the half English breakfast, the fried bread was fab.as was all)

Great beach: you can walk for about 150 yards before the sea is waist high and is very warm.

Jimmy provides a drink and food service on the beach, (keep up the good work mate)

The food and snacks are all very good and very reasonably priced (as are the drinks), there is a great indoor restaurant looking over the pool, how ever never seen anyone using it, as the weather was so hot and dry, all preferred to eat outside.

All the staff was great and really friendly on the beach and in the hotel (the cleaner works so hard)

Katarina is a lovely lady, she is always around and is very helpful, friendly and ensures you have a good stay.

A good size pool, but has we are beach people never used it.

Now the Bad Points:

There ain`t none

Will we be returning? definitely - roll on next July.

Thanks Katarina, see you next year

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the road have sun in the evening, shade overlooking the Mill have shade.

My husband our two daughters and son in law went to the valais in august. we had such a wonderful time that my husband and I returned in september.
the location of the hotel cannot be bettered it being right next to the alykinas beach. everything you could possibly want is there. sunbeds, waiter service on the beach, water sports, boats for hire with or without a captain.
the staff at the hotel do everything to make you feel that you are the most important guest there but not to the detriment of anyone else. nothing is a trouble and all is done with a smile.
you must visit and say yassou to katerina and all of the other lovely people that do so much to make your holiday special.

Room Tip: room number 212 had a fantastic view of the bay, spectacular at sunset.

Just returned from a great holiday at this very friendly family run hotel, Katarina and all her staff run this hotel very well and can't do enough for you. The rooms are clean as are the rest of the hotel and the beach area. The food is very good quality and price, the location is ideal right on the beach and only a stroll into the town with bars & restaurants. We will defiantly go back here.

We stayed for only one night but will defintiely go back. Huge room was basic but clean with big balcony and a bath. Whole place was clean and had a friendly family run feel to it. Great location on beach. good pool with bar. Serviced sun beds on the beach as well. Bar had reasonable prices and all staff were helpful and friendly

Room Tip: at front you will have view of sea and no noise from mill behind
