With a splash park and a spot right by the beach, it’s no wonder this place is a hit with families.
This place comes with a choice of pools. One has beach views and a lively atmosphere, and the other is simply huge.
It’s no distance to the sandy beach – just walk past the pool and you’re there. And it’s a 5-minute walk to Alykanas’ quaint little shops and tavernas. There’s a little train that’ll take you around town.
Available until October 2014 and open in July and August 2015. Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.

We stayed here as a family of 4 my two children being aged 8 and 2, it's a lovely resort the hotel is right on the beach which is really handy and with the main pool and kids pools being filled with enjoyment and also the mini water park the kids loved if u want a peaceful time there is another quieter pool to lounge about. With it being a Thomson hotel there is entertainment day and night so there is plenty to do keep the kids amused there are also kids clubs. Would definitely recommend and will b returning in the future More

Great hotel, in a perfect family location
The hotel is in a great location, right on the beach and within easy walking distance of the restaurants. The rooms are adequate although I for self catering I wouldn't want to attempt to cook a meal. My only gripes are that 3 out of the 4 of us suffered from a sickness and diarrhoea bug, speaking to other guests it would seem that most people got it at some point during their stay and that there are never enough sun beds.

Alykanas , more like Alcatraz !!
We went in August after reading reviews on here ... we were allocated a lovely room half underground and eye level to the car park which was delightful . the balcony view was a van wheel . room 754 . the smell of car fumes and early morning van noise was a good alarm to get up at 7:00 am to get to the pool to claim your area of sunbeds . Please do not expect anything short of an english 2 star accommodation , its dreadful !. Rock hard beds , cracked tiles , bathrooms that stink of sewage . Please look at my photos . We asked to be moved by Jess our rep and was told it was basically tuff luck. so we stayed in "the pit " till the friday . After the first day we all came down with a very nasty bug which could have only been picked up in the poolside cafe as that was the only place we ate at . This bug lasted the whole holiday and at least 2 weeks after we came home . The poolside looks quite pleasant and is if you meet the right people. The hotel staff are not helpful at all . The pool looks clean but water doesnt get tested . The hotel is 15 years old and looks everyday of it . Thomson claim it to be 4 star ! its not , its a scruffy 2 star. hygiene is a massive problem at this hotel , we seen our cleaner wipe the toilet , then the taps with the same cloth!! and people wonder why everyone was dropping like flies. my daughter was sick on poolside i cleaned most of it away with a bucket and water , told our rep "jess" who came out with a cleaner i told her what id done i she said thats great and walked off .
No chemicals to clean the poolside or sick on the sun lounger . The pool is a free for all for all other hotel guests so its chaos. The strip of restaurants is a real eye opener . its about half a mile long with waiters stood outside each restaurant touting for business , they have a good ploy by letting on to everyone and hi fiving the kids so that new guests think they have a good venue . Every restaurant sells the same thing covered in oil and tasteless , lamb cleftico and beef stufadi . Fortunately we were ill most nights so had pot noodles in the awful room. Fire extinguishers missing , piles of towels across doorways in case of rain , just the right tools to put a family at risk. Health and safety goes right out of the window here!. Ive said it was a 2 star , and it is .... but , there are 3 stars who work here , tirelessly trying to entertain the guests day and night . Jonny B Good , Tashtastic and Likkle Becks are the only reason people go back to this god forsaken place . They are the backbone to the hotel and looking at it , very undervalued by the minimal budget they are given . I really hope " Mr Thomson" reads this review because if it wasnt for those three great people this hotel would blend into the disgusting wasteland that surrounds it . Back to the hell hole . The beach is about 10 foot wide and not that great . Pool games are good fun and the kids loved dancing in the pool , water polo is also an eye opener , the dads that never get in the pool with their own kids but jump up puff their chest out and get in for water polo like a bunch of gorillas that need their egos massaging . the poor reps get battered and bruised by big oafs with half of their tattoos spelt incorrectly. All the families i met would not give this hotel a second glance, and im not surprised Thomson may be dropping it. These people who have been time and time again have obviously never stayed in a 4 star hotel . I would not go back to this hotel if you paid me . It is like an open prison and most of the inmates go back every year . If you value your health and want a nice holiday , go elsewhere ! On a nice note we had a lovely family from Liverpool come on poolside on our last day and put cigarettes out in the pool .. Classy.
The entertainment reps deserve better !More

Single Parent Holiday
I visited the Alykanas with my five year old at the end of August. Overall I was really disappointed. I have been on quite a few holidays with Thomson and have never had any problems but this was a completely different story. I wont go into all the details but my holiday started really badly arriving late at night with my daughter half asleep and being told that they would not help me carry my luggage up two flights of stairs, no lift and plenty of hotel staff about! Reception staff were just as helpful all holiday! Our room lacked any cooking equipment, no saucepans, spoons etc, when I asked for some nothing happened. The accommodation was OK but the bathroom was grimy!
The best thing about the hotel was the kids club, the staff were all great and my daughter had a great time going in the mornings. The beach was lovely as well, perfect for little people as so shallow, it doesn't belong to the hotel though.
We didn't stay in the hotel during the afternoon as it just felt unclean, lots of people were complaining of stomach bugs and the pools weren't as clean as were used too.
I felt that it was a real shame about this hotel it has the potential to be so good but the lack luster attitude of the hotel staff really lets it down. I should say the Thomson staff were all really nice.
I wouldn't stay again and I wouldn't recommend.More
