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 relaxed 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 close by, that’ll take you around town. From May 2016 this hotel will become part of the Family Life collection.
Designed for three to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs offer two hours of activities, six days a week. We’ve split the Clubs into specific age groups, too, so that all activities are tailored to suit your little ones. And all the sessions have a theme, so there’s lots of fun and games in store. You’ll find nearly all the Kids’ Club sessions are free, with evening activities available at a small charge. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club staff are trained to UK standards and undergo relevant checks.

We have just returned from our 2 week holiday at the alykanas Village Hotel. We were a party of 3 adults and 1 child (aged 5)
On arrival we were met by a friendly receptionist who explained everything we needed to know about our room,shop opening times,snack bar opening times and general things about the hotel. We hired a safe for our 2 week stay and it cost â¬50.00.
Room. Our room was 402 and was on the ground floor over looking the entertainment pool (as we liked to call it) there was a small kitchenette with microwave,toaster, kettle, 2 ring hob and fridge. Not a huge space but we managed OK.
There were 4 single beds (2 either side of a partition). Dressing table ,TV,table and chairs and a nice sized wardrobe.
The bathroom was a shower over a bath and was plenty big enough for us. In the floor of the bathroom was a drain and sometimes this got a bit smelly or after a shower/bath bubbles would come up it. I got round this by covering it with loo roll everytime I showered. It did the trick.
The beds in our room were hard but that was fine by us. There were spare pillows and blankets if needed. We had maid service 6 days a week and towels changed most days if we left them in the bath.
The rooms were OK but not a 4 star more like a 3 star. I would recommend a top floor room. You do hear everything the people above are doing!
Pools.. there are 3 pools and a kiddies water park. The entertainment pools were great for kids at one end you have a shallow area and this has railings so your little ones can't wonder off and get out of their depth then the other side of them the pool gets deeper but It isn't to deep. There is the activity pool with the water polo net up that you can also use anytime. These 2 pools have music,games and entertainment for most of the day
The beech front pool was also nice and had nice views and a little quieter than the main pool. However, be warned if you do use the beech front pool you will be pestered most of the day by the lucky lucky men, people offering massages and fruit sellers.
The kiddies water park is great you have 3 larger slides that is kids only then a smaller selection of slides and water fountains.
All the pools are kept clean however a few more bins would be good as some of the guests left rubbish under the sunbeds.
There were plenty of sunbeds to go round and we never needed to get up early for sunbeds for the 2 weeks we were there.
The hotel staff work hard keeping the place tidy.
Entertainment. I can not praise the Thomson entertainment and kids club team enough. They are friendly, helpful and welcoming. They work long hours and try their best to get everyone involved in the day and evening activities. The entertainment is for kids and adults throughout the day and the evening starts with little pups for the kids then they present the day time winners with prizes. Then onto a show or act. Most of the time the reps put something on in the evening but a few nights a week they have outside entertainment come in. I.e singers, magician and jugglers. If you get chance to see vicky mouse sing (one of the reps) it's a must! She is brilliant! My little boys favourite rep was turbo tom. He was the front man most days and he works hard to make sure everyone is having fun. The whole team are brilliant and they are probably the best reps we have had on a thomson holiday. We have had a fantastic time with them and they are one of the main reasons we have had such a fun, memorable holiday. I'd like to wish all of them the best of luck for the future.
Location.. the hotel is in a ideal spot of alykanas. There are plenty of restaurants,bars and shops within a couple of minutes walk from the hotel entrance. Also within walking distance is alykes. There is also plenty of restaurants and bars. It took us about 15 minutes to walk there from the hotel but if you don't fancy the walk there are horse and carriages near the hotel entrance that will take you for â¬10. Also with the beach on your doorstep there are a few tevernas along there. You will never be sort of places to eat. There are plenty of trips and excursions to go on and you won't have any trouble booking any.
We have had a brilliant time here and can recommend it, however we won't be returning next year as it is going all inclusive and that just isn't for us. More
my sister and I arrived at hotel 22 September,we was shown to our room,which was very dark with no views which we asked for on booking.went back down to reception and were told there was not a room we could move to at this time she told us to come back at 6pm.so we had to hang around for 4 hours for another room.when we was shown to the room it was very basic and on top of reception and bar area.we had a lovely view which was the best thing at this time we were told not many children would be there as they would be back at school,dont get me wrong I love kids,be we wanted a quite place.the place was full of young babies and children,the noise was dreadful,at night we did not get much sleep as the bar was under are room,beds was very hard,and bathroom not very clean.but over all the out side was stunning and the weather beautifulMore

This hotel was nowhere near as nice as I'd hoped and expected. The pool areas weren't very clean and there were beer cans and cigarette butts left everywhere.
We had a 2 bedroom apartment but unfortunately it had no living space, just a tiny kitchenette with a table too small for a family of 4.
The microwave was faulty and the aircon was flakey. Wifi signal is very poor.
Snack bar was good quality but very expensive for what it was.
On 2 mornings we had no running water.
When it rained heavily water poured into our bedroom from the balcony.
TV didn't work as plug had lose wires. Dangerous.
The travel cot supplied was filthy.
The cleaning was poor. Other people's hair on the floor when we arrived and what looked like blood stains on the sheets.
Kids club and crÃ¨che were good and the staff working them were really nice.
Thomson reps were utterly useless and disinterested but reception staff were helpful with some issues but not with others.
Beach directly by the hotel was covered in litter.
This is not a 4* hotel.More
We went with our 3 year old and 5 month old. The hotel was lovely with plenty of space. Our room was clean and basic but find most of Greece like this so couldn't grumble. The swimming pools were all clean and we always got a sunbed round the pool. The lady who worked in the pool bar was lovely and was always very friendly. All the staff we found helpful and friendly.
