Alykanas Beach Village  

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.

Absolutely fantastic family hotel with amazing facilities and staff!!!

I have just stayed at the hotel for the past two weeks with my husband and two daughters (baby 6mths and toddler), we had the most AMAZING time and already plan to stay there again next year. The entertainment team, reps and hotel staff made our stay wonderful, everyone couldn't help us enough. We frequently attended the evenings dancing where we were overjoyed to see our toddler playing games and dancing, our little baby girl also joined in with the help of the team. By day we enjoyed winning the odd certificate by joining in with the excellent entertainment and used the exceptionally good onsite facilities pool/slides etc. we loved being located on the beach where the views were stunning. The rooms were clean and accommodated everything we needed. The kids club/creche staff and facilities were also fab, we visited a couple of times our girls loved the toys and activies. The staff (entertainment/reps/hotel staff) made our stay super special, we made some wonderful memories as a family and Look forward to staying at the resort again soon, this family hotel has got it just right!! Our girls also loved the Thomson the dog visits, brilliant holiday!!! More


Great family holiday, felt safe with 2 toddlers

We visited in June/July 2014, with my 3 and a half year old and very-nearly 2 year old. Travel The journey went as well as you could hope with 2 little ones, however the bus journey from the airport to the hotel was very twisty and the driver seemed to love speeding up to then have to slam on the brakes at every bend. My daughters were nearly sick, but it had been a very early start. Reception Check-in went well. I still feel aggrieved at having to pay for the safe and the air con, but it seems that Thomson won't listen to anyone's gripes on that. Room We had a two bedroom apartment and luckily were on the ground floor (with huge double pushchair, upstairs would have been awful) with a view of the pool and seafront. The room was basic and the cooking facilities weren't great, but we'd budgeted to eat out most of the time so that was fine. The beds were comfortable (we played the inevitable music beds with the children many nights) and the shutters meant we all slept in until 9.30am one day. Unheard of in our house! Bathroom The bathroom in our room was terrible, but I think that's down to the greek sewerage system. Bath water flowed up through a drain in the floor if I didn't release it carefully after the girls' bath time, but after a shower it was fine. The whole 'toilet paper in the bin' is awful, but again not the hotel's fault. Cleaning The room was cleaned often enough for us but I really struggled with the fact that bath towels were only exchanged about twice a week. We were having to use towels to mop up the bathroom floor and the maid wouldn't swap them without a fight. Pools We only swam in the beach pool and found it clean and pretty good for young (over confident) children. Beach There was lots of black seaweed on the beach and in the shallow waters when we were there, but it looked nice other than that. Beach bar The food was good and relatively competitively priced, BUT there was always a massive queue and they only took cash. My husband managed to get them agree to let us have a daily tab running, but they didn't want us to tell anyone! Local restaurants On the whole the food was great. Our fav was The Appollon (I think). The only bad meal we had was one recommended by the Thomson Rep. I wondered if she had some kind of rebate system going - it was awful. We took the horse carriage up to the Lemon Tree a couple of times and also enjoyed the restaurant down the beach. Kids Club My daughters both enjoyed the Kids Club / Creche facilities. My elder daughter still tells me about the she did there, 4 months later, so it must have made a lasting impression. Reps Despite all the positive reviews on here I didn't warm to any of the reps. They just didn't seem that interested in making any effort with me and my family. When we left we booked a private taxi and got to the airport quickly and without feeling ill. Overall we had a great 10 days but I hear there are plans to change the place and make it all inc. I don't think they've got space to do that.More

Heaven on Earth

Just spent a week at this family Hotel, chosen because at the end of the season we knew there would not be a lot of children there, we love kids and have six grandchildren, but also like a bit of piece and quiet so thought it would be a calculated risk. As it happened there was only about twenty children there as the schools had not broken up. The Hotel is very nice, in a lovely part of Zante, mountains, trees sandy beach. We had asked for a quiet and high room and got exactly what we wanted, four sets of nine steps to go up, but on the end with mountain views one side, sea, pool and beach at the front so straight by the pool, through the snack bar (Food FANTASTIC) homemade pizza 12" five euros and all made from scratch - delicious, beer five euro for two and good (Mythos) and onto grassed area (Free sunbeds and plenty of them) went self catering, just did a breakfast, then eat out, choice of about 100 plus restaurants, ate in a different one each day and all good for average 25 euro including wine, when you go take the mini train trip from just outside the hotel, great run through beautiful countryside, then to the best museum in the world (You could pick up most things) then onto little Taverna for Lunch, best ten euros you will ever spend included wine. But for you parents, the kids will absolutely LOVE the place, nine staff on call, arranging games, great playground etc etc really a Family resort.More

Beautiful location plenty to do

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
