Alykanas Village Hotel
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Alykanas
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stayed here in May 2013, rooms are comfortable and well sized, we had no noise as previously mentioned, have to say I was disappointed with this Thomsons hotel as it did not live up to their previous standards.

This hotel is definitely not a 4star more like 3 star, rooms were cleaned daily but towels were only changed once in a full week, even though I placed them all in the bath tub to be changed!

We were short changed by ten euros twice on this holiday so be aware and check your change!

The beach area is nice and very shallow bay for small children, restaurants are plenty between Alykanas and Alykes, best restaurant we found was Paradisico on the main road to Alykes.

A quiet holiday and relaxing, tried the water park which was good and worth attending.

Hope this helps you making a decision.

Room Tip: Try to get a beach view

we have just returned from a week stay at this apt, we took our 4 year old grandson and after travelling around the world to many different apts we found this one up there with the top. the staff are amazing especially the young lady at the pool bar who works very hard and always has a smile on her face, the bar man up the top bar and not forgetting the manageress of the hotel, what a fantastic, freindly helpful lady who will go out of her way to do anything for you, cosy corner is nice for meals and the best waffles and pancakes are available at the NO COMMENT bar just outside the hotel turn left, the staff in there are brilliant. i would def recommend this place to people with young children

Room Tip: all rooms have either pool or sea veiw or both but room 171 is perfect

Stayed here in May 2011 with my boyfriend, two daughters, boyfriend's brother and his girlfriend. Stayed for a week and was gutted when the week was over as it wasn't long enough. This was our first trip to Zante and we love the place. My boyfriend's brother and his girlfriend loved it that much they got married in Zante in 2012. My two daughters love it that much they keep asking to go back to Alykanas Village. The people are great and so is the food.

This was our first stay in Alykanas Village Hotel, with a 5 year old and a 11 month old, it was perfect for us. the pools were not too deep for our 5 year old, & the reps kept him entertained with various activities, althought the one critisism was that they do badger is adults to get involved with alot of the over age 16/18 pool side games, which not everyone wants to do on holiday!
We had a slight problem the first day, about 2 hours after arriving, where the kitchen sink pipe in the cupboard burst, & started gushing with water, everywhere! luckily the thomson rep was still at the desk in reception so she got someone to come try to stop it, but as there was about 2 inches of water, & no maid serivce to clean up until the next day, we had to move rooms. But the lovely Thomson rep did sort it all out & help us with it.
We has a requested ground floor room (because of pushchair), it was a good size for a family of 4, and kept clean. Bins changed everyday, towel changed every other and the floors mopped inbetween. But being on the ground, we did find it was noisy, you can hear the toilets flush upstairs and high heel shoes tapping on floor above!
We didnt see any stray dogs on site, but we did find there were alot of sellers just down from the apartments every night trying to sell you roses & bracelets, they were quite rude so beware!
There is baby food & formula available to buy in the town shops, but it is pricey & only Nestle, vegetable and turkey! In general we found everything quite pricey, but we ate everynight in the various tavernas for around €30, drinks & main course for 3 people. Everywhere had highchairs & were able to provide hot water to warm baby food. Most places have a play area for children.
There was alot of sunbed reserving with towels everyday, the fight began every morning at 8am!
All in all it was a very pleasant holiday, perfect for us, thoroughly enjoyed it & would definitely stay there again, i would recommend it for families with children.
Travelled May 2013, weather was mainly hot, some days 27degrees, but had one rain day, & one really windy night.

Room Tip: all rooms are pool side, ground floor do hear upstairs noise. all good size

This is a lovely location and hotel for a family holiday. Thomson rate it as 4T but it is classified as a 3 star hotel, so keep this in mind when you read some of the bad reviews, it is not a 4star. I can see why Thomson class it as 4T as they have added a lot of facilities such as the entertainment team, kids club, creche and holiday reps service. It is perfect for families with young children and babies. It is right on the beach and has 3 lovely swimming pools. One overlooks the beach and is the 'quiet' pool where you don't have to join in the games and other animation activities. The animation team and staff are really great and lots of fun. Yes, there are activities such as bingo and party dances but you don't have to take part (can't think of anything I'd rather do less than play bingo on holiday!). The creche team were excellent and we left our little one with them on two evenings which was nice for us!

The hotel is very clean and the cleaners keep the apartments nice and clean throughout the holiday with fresh towels and sheets. It is great that they allow extra beds in the rooms (there are 4 in the studios) but this is rather annoying if, like us, you only need two. Also don't be fooled by the Thomson website, if you need a cot you have to contact the hotel to arrange it - it cost us 70 euros for two weeks so if you are on a budget you need to factor this in as it is not cheap. The rooms have been redecorated in the last few years and fitted with new wardrobes and kitchen units, but if you are expecting above 3 star standard you will be disappointed. There is plenty of kitchen equipment but with only two hot plates it is a bit overkill. The bathroom is perfectly adequate but does have the drain in the middle of the floor (which is so often the case in Greece) and it would occasionally back up when draining the bath. We got this holiday very cheaply and it was well, well worth the price paid. I would definitely recommend it.

For some reason everyone reserves sunbeds in the morning which is very annoying. Instead of joining in head over to Ammos Snack Bar by the beach - they have sun beds and parasols on the beach and aren't pushy, just buy a few drinks and you can stay all day (although their food is excellent and very reasonable too). They also play great music. The food at the snack bar in the hotel is also good and really reasonably priced.

If you are taking a baby make sure you take baby food and milk as you can only purchase Nestle baby food out there and it is sweet and sickly. No problem buying pampers nappies and wipes though.

Altogether a really great family holiday. Around half the people we met were there for a second time so I think that speaks for itself!

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a partial sea view or a pool view.

This was our first stay at the hotel. Two adults and a child and we thoroughly enjoyed it. This hotel is definitely one to stay with children as it has a lot going on for them, plus the splash pool is brilliant. Could do with more sunbeds and more frequent change of towels though.
We stayed mid May. The weather was nice and warm with a few windy days and a couple of hot ones, but overall, you could still enjoy yourself.
The hotel is well located for restaurants and bars as most of them are within a few minutes walk, the max maybe ten and there's always horse and carriages about offering you transport, but that can work out quite pricey as they charge around 10 euros for a local ride. You may just want to do it for the novelty as a one off.
Food isn't that costly really, you can make it as cheap or expensive as you like. There are places nearby where you can get a greek pitta filled with chips and salad (Gyro) for about 2 euros and they are quite filling. The average main meal per person without drinks is about 9-10 Euros. I would say to bring cereal for the kids thoughf this is what they have for breakfast, as a box of Kellogs cereal is around 4 euros.
Overall it was brilliant, lovely scenic views and not a rowdy clubbing place. Will return in the future.

Room Tip: The rooms that sleep three with a sea view are the newer rooms.
