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 five-minute walk to Alykanas’ quaint little shops and tavernas. There’s a little train close by, that’ll take you around town.

The slides are only for people aged 3-12
This hotel is very nice and the food is good. It's a bit samey after a week but it is still enjoyable. Rooms are spacious. There is a full sized fridge in your room. Worth mentioning that there is a washing machine that you can use at the hotel (3 euro) and a retractable line on the balcony, great if you have kids (take a handful of pegs the wind can pick up a bit in the afternoon). Kids clubs are available, I think at an extra cost but we didn't use it. I was disappointed that the waterslides are only available for people aged 3-12. I spent ages looking for a hotel with waterslides as it is a fun thing that we wanted to do together. Instead I spent ages trying to coax my little boy to go on them. Another warning about the kids pool, most of the tiles are fine, they get warm but near the entrance there are some grey and red tiles. My little boy burnt his feet and had blisters on the soles as soon as he went on these tiles. Shoes are advisable. Overall it is a good hotel in a peaceful village. We had a lovely holiday but I'm not sure it warrants 4 stars. Personally I would give it 3.More

SUCH A SHAME THAT STANDARDS HAVE DROPPED
we stayed at this hotel 3 years ago at which time the boys were 5 and 3, we had a fab time with great entertainment for the children and adults alike also 3 years ago we could accompany the children on the water slides , sadly this time the entertainment was albeit non existent and the little ones had to go on the pretty high water slides unaccompanied !!! and prey tell me why the segregation ? the new block and dining hall look really great but why on earth are all of the pink apartments purely for non Brits when we all actually eat together , what kind of message does this send out do tell ! finally and this will be my last ever review of this particular Hotel , I always strip the bed at the end of my stay and this time I really wished I had not seen what lie below the mattress , I wont go in to details as it would make for really disgusting reading, ironically as we waited for the coach to take us back to the airport a lorry load of new Mattresses was delivered , if I had stripped the bed on arrival I would never have slept in it , I have traveled all over many of the Greek Islands and many times to this area and loved every second but this second visit to this particular Hotel was the last sorry !More
I'm here now staying at the alykanas village, it's the first time I've stayed here in alykanas and it's beautiful. The hotel and ground are wonderful too. We are staying all inclusive there is a variety of choice although the quality of food isn't that great. I'd say the snack choice is better than the mains - being burgers hot dogs and sandwiches. The rooms are spacious if there is only 2 of you where as I am a family of 4 (not much room) I had to have a room change because of all the ants we found. The staff is friendly when you can find them. We have travelled with 8 adults and 3 children and the entertainment stops at 9pm so after that the children have nothing to do. I've also not seen one Thomson rep. I have got to say from a travel agent point of view it's not a 4 star hotel. More
Great family holiday
Had a great family holiday at Alykanas Village hotel. I would recomend this hotel for young famillies. This was the first time we have stayed all inclusive. The food was genarally very good with lots of choice. The rooms were fine although the bathrooms were small and could do with an update. The block at the front with views of Keffallonia and the east and mountains. There were plenty of pools of all depths and some slides for the kids. The hotel is right on the beach. Sea great for small kids as was very shallow. They had very little night time entertainment but that was fine for us. Would go back. Best suited for families with children below 8 years old.

Much room for improvement
Arrival - TUI reps not giving any info but there to say hi. Not told where the restaurant was so ended up in the snack bar for lunch. Found the restaurant ourselves later on wandering around (reps said we should have asked however basic info like this should be given when you arrive, not a day later at a welcome meeting!) Given a photocopied hand drawn map of 'village' with our room circled. Not told there was a back way with a ramp so lugged 3 cases and a buggy with toddler down all the steps. This is the main area swimming pool from reception which was a pain every day. Asked for a ground floor apartment but got a 1st floor. Again, a pain with the buggy, cases and toddler every day. Also being pregnant. Not one bit of information the room. Staff - not terribly friendly. Not rude but not chatty, happy etc like I've seen in other hotels I've been to. Lacks personality. Food/drink - Drinks given in stupid flimsy plastic cups which you couldn't carry more than 2 at a time. Food was ok. Wouldn't go hungry. Lots of the same thing but that's pretty normal with all Inc. High chairs weren't great. A lot without straps. They had a few ikea plastic ones so used them when we could. Entertainment - this was poor. Mini disco a couple of nights for half hour by the TUI reps and a Greek dance which was very dull. Splash park/pools - TUI reps told us splash park not suitable for under 5's and if there was an accident the hotel would not be liable or assist in any way. This wasn't made clear when booked so used it once at our own risk and it wasn't fun. Pools were freezing. Nice toddler pool which our 2 year old could go in which didn't go past her waist. Trips - did the BBQ cruise. Food was rubbish (2 small pork skewers, bit of salad, yoghurt dip and slice of bread) trip to the wreck was good and 2 opportunities to swim/snorkel for adults. Spend about 30 euros on drinks and snacks. Take your own. Nearby - nice restaurants and shops. Not loads going on. Had a meal out at Carrismo and Greek Pepper. Food was lovely. G Room - very clean and well looked after. Overlooked the pool. Couldn't fault the room really. Even had a low partition wall between the beds so adults/ kids can be a bit separate. Would be nice to have to fridge refilled with water each day. Beds were pushed together and kept sliding apart so not ideal for a couple although he didn't wake me fidgeting haha! Baby travel cot - AWFUL!! You could feel the bars through the underneath. We tried to pack it out with blankets but ended up putting out 1.5 year old in a bed packed in with pillows and suitcases. She fell out once. Wasn't much else we could do. TV - wasn't there to watch TV but there was only one English speaking channel which was a news channel. Shower/bath - weirdt. Shower head points outwards and shower screen didn't protect the shower so water went everywhere. My daughter slipped and fell but was ok. Baby club - this was great. Staff lovely. Left our daughter there for 2 sessions and she loved it. The toddler club looked good too but she was to young. Beach - nice. Not much to report on this. Went down there a couple of times. Literally seconds away from hotel down the steps. Overall - wouldn't return as have been to better equipped and better value for money hotels. It wasn't awful. Just not for us.More
