I travelled to Alykanas Village with my family - a 4 year old, 2 year old and husband on the 15 - 22 June 2012, and we loved it. We were giving a beautiful room No. 173 which had 2 double bedrooms and a double balcony which overlooked the sea. The kitchen facilities were good and consisted of a microwave grill oven, a small electric cooker, kettle etc and in the bedroom a decent hair dryer was provided The 4 pools were a perfect depth for my 4 year old, ranging from .25m to .70m. The baby pool and the park were brillant and my kids loved it, although the flooring became very slippery. Talking about flooring dont let your children walk with no shoes on when they have just gotten out of the pool - my daughter did and cut her toes on the paving and we weren't the only ones. There are dogs which wonder around the hotel grounds, but they were not noisey nor did the pester us when we were there. The beach is lovely and i would recommend taking a walk to Alykes, its only about 10/15 mins away along the beach front, but you will find bigger beaches along the way and the kids will enjoy the freedom. We did 2 trips while we were there - Simply Zante and the Pirates Playaway. Simply Zante was an all day trip, and my two children enjoyed it, the best part being the boat trip to see the blue caves. The second trip was a half day which we all enjoyed but to get to the ship we spent an hour in the coach travelling thru the winding roads of Zante which caused my children to be sick and a few adults to feel woozy - dont let this deter you but just be warned! The Thompson reps were all good with the kids, esp. Becky and Adie, and the Entertainment team did a good job entertaining the hotel guests. But the star of the show for my children was Thomson The Dog. We payed the extra 30 Euros to have a late room check out and was moved to room No. 805 - directly above reception, this was no where nice as our old room but met the need (this is the only block with a lift). Food - There was there was not enough variety of food for the children - nearly all the restaurants offered pizza, pasta and burgers for the children all with chips, we ended up ordering from the adult menu for them and sharing their meal! There is only one restaurant on the beach, but the food there is good, recommend what ever is on the spit. Apollos on the high street is good also as is Cosy Corner, Vagis and the restaurant in the hotel. We took a trip to the Lemon Tree - 5 Euros there and5 back on the horse and cart, where i had the Mousakka which was cold and not very nice at all. All in all the hotel was clean, staff were friendly and the surrounding area was beautiful and clean and i would recommend anyone with children to stay at this hotel.
