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.

Great location/poor accommodation
Our family of four (2 children aged 11 & 9) and two adults have just returned from a two week holiday at the hotel. Whilst the location is fantastic, literally on the beach which is beautiful with lovely clear water, we were disappointed with the hotel especially for the amount of money it cost. The room we were staying in (654) was in need of a refurbishment especially the bathroom which was quite grubby. We had been staying there 10 days when the whole family contracted the most awful stomach bug, we were so poorly we couldn't go out for dinner on the remaining 4 days of our holiday, a shame when you've worked hard all year! This has put us off returning. The 3 pools were pleasant enough although the sun beds were an issue. The water park is great but the best pool is the one overlooking the sea. The main pool area can be a bit like Butlins. The overall resort is lovely especially the sea view restaurants. F MuirheadMore
Great location, great Thomson team, no good for a cold beer though!
Travelled with my wife, daughter and Granddaughter. Hotel is ideally set up for families, right on the beach and lovely big pools. Beautiful views over the bay. Very good Thomson team, both entertainment and kids' club (my Granddaughter loved it!). If the entertainment team are not your flavour then the beachfront pool is probably best for you. I've seen loads of comments about the subbed situation (let's face it most package destinations have this issue), and I can honestly say that it really wasn't that bad, I've certainly stayed at hotels which were far worse. Generally most sun beds were taken by 8.30am, however on many mornings there were still some available at 9am, when the staff would tour removing towels which were unaccounted for. The room was clean and basic and well kept by the cleaning staff. If you like hard mattresses (which we do) then that is fine too. Only a couple of minor points on the minus side. The evening entertainment is held in a downstairs hall, the stairs to which smell somewhat of drains. The entertainment itself would have been fine, however it was spoiled by this location. Would have been far better upstairs or outside, to make the most of the fantastic weather and venue. Secondly, if you like a cold beer (and Greece is usually best for this, with glasses being kept in the freezer!) then I'd go somewhere else at lunchtime, there was a real dearth of glasses and the bar person regularly used warm or your previously used glass. The queues at the outdoor bar could also get very long. It would be better to have more than one member of staff here. Alykanas was a lovely little resort. Quite small but great for a stroll and a meal out. Will review the restaurants separately, but most were fine, selling pretty much the same fayre. Would we go back? Certainly, felling well chilled out after a fantastic break.More
First thing you do when you get home is book again for next year!!
Its that good. The thomsons team were fab. The kids loved them from kids club looking after my disabled son to the entertainment team involving everyone in the pool party. If you dont want to listen to the pool entertainment you can relax by the pool overlooking the beach. It is perfectly situated just a couple of steps off the beach and a very short walk to the shops and restaurants. The staff are so friendly and remembered us from previous years. Just booked for the 4th year. Perfect place for families especially with young children. The town is small but very friendly, kids play areas in most restaurants, carriage rides available every evening. Hired a boat ourselves and spent the day at sea with a visit to the blue caves 90euros for the day was nice to go where you wanted rather than on a trip. Always have such a good time reluctant to go anywhere else.More

First visit to Alykanas
We have just returned from our first visit to Zakynthos, and having stayed at the Alykanas Village, have only good things to say about it. The hotel was very friendly and the staff were happy to cater to our needs, the rooms were a nice size and well equipped, and were kept clean, although on one occasion our towels were missed off....several pool areas to choose from and the garden overlooking the beach were spotlessly clean all the time. The only issue we came across and were as guilty as everyone else in doing, was regarding the sunbed situation. I would be up at 6:45 to put our towels down, but we were always on the beds by about 8am with some still available on most days, however by mid morning everything was taken, and we can understand people's frustrations at other people reserving them and then casually coming down after lunchtime. We can't really comment on the food/drink here as we only had breakfast on the morning we arrived, which was more out of necessity than choice. The only a grumble we could have was at having to pay extra for air conditioning, but otherwise a very pleasant stay and definitely somewhere we would consider again in the future. More

The perfect holiday
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Alykanas Village Hotel and we have had an amazing time. The hotel staff from reception to bar staff are always friendly and helpful, cleanliness is of a high standard. My children loved the Kids clubs and have fallen love with the majority of the staff, as they are all so warm and welcoming. The Thomson team were great. There are days when sunbeds are scarce, but we managed to get beds most days and we are by no means early risers !! I have to say the one thing that stood out for me was the Thomson Entertainment team who totally exceeded my expectations. They work tirelessly from morning til night, with quizzes, games in and out of the pool, shows for all ages from tots up. The current team of Johnny, Tash and Little Bec are outstanding, and are a real credit to Thomson. They work so hard to ensure everyone has a good time. The acts bought in from the Uk were good too, but the nights put on by the Thomson team were the best. We were all so sad to leave, my 2 little girls have had the best time. We would return in a heartbeat. More
