Alykanas Beach Village has things nicely worked out in the family getaway stakes. There’s no long trek to the beach here – just pad past the pool and you’re there. It’s a thin band of sand that shelves down to calm waters that are perfect for little swimmers.
It’s the pools that really catch the eye, though. There’s one that looks out over the beach, one that's geared up for sports, and one that’s large size makes it ideal for swimming. The icing on the cake is the splash park, which is home to a sunken pirate ship with a swinging tyre, octopus slides, and mushroom showers.
When it comes to food, everything has been kept fairly simple. There’s the pool bar serving cooked and continental breakfasts, and salads, pizzas and snacks throughout the day. At dinner time, most guests make the ten-minute walk to the restaurants in Alykanas.
Lastly, as you’d expect, the complex has plenty going on activity-wise. As well as a Thomson Kids' Club, there’s a playground, a children's pool, and a paddling pool for toddlers.

Beautiful hotel on beach
We loved everything about this hotel, rooms were spacious and clean. The pools were fantastic ( huge ) but safe. The village is lovely also with plenty places to eat. We would love to return soon and enjoy another stay in the Alykanas.More
Email address for Gloria please?
Hi there, I've been to this hotel 3 times before and each time has been pretty good, I've never had much cause to speak to staff as I've never had any issues. I do have a couple of questions about room allocation though as there are quite a few of us in my party now, others who have travelled here have mentioned Gloria and how helpful she is, I was wondering if anyone has an email address for her? We are travelling there soon and don't want to hold up the check in process at the reception desk, I know everyone just wants to lose their cases and head straight for the pools! Thanks a lot fellow Alykanas appreciators :DMore

Love this Place
We ve been here three times now and loved every holiday. The location is amazing. Right by beach and close to shops and restaurants. The manager Gloria is very helpful and the locals are so friendly. Would love to go back again. The kids love this place, Thomson kids club is excellent and they offer evening kids club which enabled us to have meals out as a couple. What a treat!!! Food and drink is expensive so make sure you take bits in your luggage. Can t praise it enough.More
Great little place
Had a lovely 10 days here. Complex a nice size. Pools nice and big and splash park a bonus. Didn't go to any of the evening entertainment as it's downstairs near the reception area and we didn't find this out til we'd been there for 4 days so felt we weren't missing anything and the kids didn't know so that was a bonus. The rooms are just what you need if like us you go on holiday to actually be on holiday. Yes, there are only 2 rings on hob and no, there is no living room but we don't go on holiday to cook/sit around watching tv. The balconies are all big and are all pool facing. Big bonus if you get a sea view room as not only do you get the constant sea breeze which is steps away from hotel but pool view too. The air con and safe are extra but to be honest we haven't been anywhere that hasn't charged for these so no complaints there. A couple of things I would say about the hotel. The snack bar - not great. I'd suggest sticking to a toastie if you are going to try as the rest is microwaved or at least tastes like it. The splash park - walk down to the snack bar or from the snack bar across to it. The road leading down the back of the hotel from reception is very bumpy and Stoney. Maybe they'll have tarmaced it before you travel but it isn't a pleasant walk if it isn't. Don't bother buying any inflatables either, there is a room in reception that is packed with them and lots of other things such as goggles/pistols etc. The beach is nice but small but we just lay our towels on the grass of our hotel and had the best of both worlds. The first day we got there we came out and took a right leading onto a Main Street with shops/restaraunts etc. Was a little disappointed at first as it was like a ghost town and we was mid August. We went to the dilemma bar that night, across the grass at the entrance and what a find. Not only did they tell us how to get to the town in next to no time the bar itself was fab. They have a crazy golf course, xbox, play station, trampoline, ice hockey machine. The x box and play station are charged at 1 euro per half hr! The staff were brill and the cocktails delicious. Our 4 yr old nicknamed it xbox bar and asked as soon as he woke if we could back. As I was saying, they told us how to get into the town without the horse n cart ride. Here goes, walk past the dilemma bar, take a right down the back of the hotel (alykanas beach) and come out other end. Right again, across the bridge, take a left and there you go. 4-5mins tops and you have bars, loads of restaraunts, shops everything you expect on a hol. It is nice getting the horse and cart and we did most nights on way back to hotel. Try and get the 'yeehah' man as we came to call him. He dressed in shirt and cowboy hat and is great. Shouts 'yeehah' whilst riding. We hunted him down as the boys loved this and after a few nights he let them sit up front and hold the rein in turns. All in all we had a fab, relaxing 10 days and would go back again. More
Had a really enjoyable week here with our 4 year old granddaughter. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable, massive balcony with side sea view. Clean and tidy throughout. We don't really like 'family' hotels but decided to give this one a go as we wanted enough to keep the little one occupied. This was a great choice, the entertainment team were fantastic with the kids of an evening but during the day it wasn't in your face or too noisy like some family hotels. With three large pools, one being a quiet one right on the beach with fantastic views, there was something for everyone. The children's little water park was also great and always quiet! Great children's park too. Lovely beach with clear water and fantastic views. Gorgeous village with friendly people and not as much 'pestering' as in some greek resorts. We self catered, choosing to eat breakfast and some lunches in the apartment, we ate out each evening and enjoyed some lovely meals out. We did find the supermarkets in the village quite expensive and was glad we had taken some basics with us. Hired a car for a couple of days to explore the rest of this beautiful island this is a must! Overall i would absolutely recommend this hotel to family's who want children's entertainment without the madness and I would also recommend for couples for location and comfort of rooms. More
