“Good holiday and accomodation”
Reviewed September 15, 2009

All 5 family members aged between 40 and 65 were impressed with the Alykanes village accomodation and location. Having had lots of self catering holidays in other parts of Greece this was good in comparison. Yes there was noise and music around the main pool during the day but thats to be expected. Apartments were clean and had all necessary facilities and as far as I could tell all either had a pool or sea view. I read complaints about Gloria who works at reception before we went on holiday but my impression of her was that she was polite, friendly and very helpfull. We tried most restaraunts and had no complaints about any of them. We did take the little train owned by Spiros as others had recommended it and I must say for the price it was a fun and interesting few hours. We also joined Spiros again on the Saturday evening as did many others for a Greek night at his Taverna. Again good value for money and we were picked up and taken back on the little train it was a real novelty. I would not recommend the trip to Zante town from this area as it took more than 1 hour to get there at night having picked up from several other resorts along the way it then took much more than an hour on the way back. This left little time to explore the town. I dont usually return year on year to any location but this time I am going to make an exception and return again with other family members next year.

We recently returned from the Alykanas village and we had a great time . We travelled with 2 children aged 9 and 6 and they prefered this holiday to Disneyland !! . The entertainment team , especially Antman and Lyndseypops were brilliant and kept our family entertained around the main pool and on an evening at the venue. If you wanted to have a change from the organised entertainment the beach side pool is nice and peaceful and the beach is only a few strides away. We ate in most of the restaurants in Alykanas and they were all fine . Our favourite was the Chindian on the opposite side of the road from the supermarket. If you are reading this and have children and are planning next years holiday .take my advice Book - you'll love it. Some reviews complain about the noise - the clue is in the brochure - Thomson super FAMILY . In summary a good hotel in a great location with lots to do for all the family.

Just returned from a brilliant 2 weeks at the Alykanas Village with two kids (7 & 4). We all had such a good time. The kids loved their clubs and we weren't expecting to be able to leave them for 2 hours a day each so we all got a bit of a break. We also managed a night out on our own whilst they were at the famous "chocolate party" - so a big well done and thank you to all the Thompson reps and kids clubs. The Reps were fantastic and worked so hard on keeping everyone entertained.

The pools are fantastic and we managed to sit around all three, if you like a bit of peace and quiet then the beach pool is far enough away from the noise of the Boogie Shack so having a choice is nice. The beach is gorgeous too although you have to pay for loungers there. Bit shocked by how early we had to go down to get a sunbed though - 8am by the latest.

Bedrooms were really nice in our apartment, but the kitchenette was a bit dingy - but to be fair we hardly spent any time there anyway. Rooms were cleaned every other day and were to a high standard. The rest of the hotel was lovely and clean with great bars and staff.

Good restaurants near the complex, favourites were the Apollo and Grecco. Went on a trip with www.specialoffer.gr which was half the price of the Thompson trip and was fantastic - we saw a turtle and had 2 swimming stops.

Only downside was when my daughter was ill with high temperature and vomiting and we called the doctor out who sent us to local hospital for tests. The hospital was really grotty and we are glad we were only there a few hours. All in all this cost us just over £200 which is a lot to pay for a shoddy service - thank god we had insurance and it makes you appreciate the NHS a bit more.

Overall - a fantastic holiday with lots of fond memories.

my family and i (husband, me and 2 children 3 and 10) stayed at his hotel in may 09 and we all had a fantastic holiday.
we had a 2 bed thomson the dog themed room and it was clean and fresh altho no seating area apart from the balcony but we only really slept in the apartment!!!! the pool area were clean and plenty of entertainment on offer if you wanted to join in. the snack bar was only open until 6pm and we found it expensive, prefering to goto the resort instead.
the resort of alykanas was a quiet place with restaurants (apollo, dyonosis, and mantelena were the best) shops, supermarket, bakers and plenty of tour operators.
we went on a tour around the island of zante enjoyed it up until we left smugglers cove (AMAZING!!) and then got bored would not recommend taking young children.
Al in all we had a fantastic holiday, the weather was hot the food was great and the staff were brilliant.

Just returned after 2 weeks at these apartments. The rooms were kept spotless by the hard working cleaning staff although some of the exterior areas need some attention.
Lots of uneven tiles for the unsuspecting child (or adult) to cut their feet on. Kids went to kids club and had a great time. The ents staff kept all the family entertained all day and worked really hard in the evening to entertain everyone. Felt they were let down by the venue which lacked atmosphere (a bit like a large rec hall!!!). Downside to the "entertainment" were the cabaret acts flown in from the UK.
Did a trip to Olympia which was well worth the money (although a very long day) advise to take lots of frozen water with you as does get hot whilst looking around the site. Avoid the Thomson's Greek night. Not very good and not wotrth the money spent. Would advise instead the Friday night Greek Night at the Mill Bar. Unfortunately only discovered this gem on the last night.
Favourite restuarants were the Nerada, the lemon tree, The Apollo and the one beginning with P on the road to Alykes!!!!
Went to wine tasting festival in Alykes which was fab. You even get the chance to trample some grapes.
All in all a great holiday. Enjoyed so much we have already booked for next year!
