We went to alykanas on the 2nd of september with our 2 kids age 4 and 10. We got a ground floor apt with pool view. It was fab. Every morning the kids would hop the wall on our patio and head straight for the pool. The apt was spotless , it was cleaned every day with fresh bed sheets and clean towels every 2nd day. For our first two days we hired 2 quad bikes and drove up the mountains , the view was breathtaking. then we drove to kalamaki in just 40 minutes. Quads are def the best way to get around the island and the kids loved them. They cost €80 alltogether. Another day we went on jet skis , that was briliant craic. On our fourth day we hired a boat . We had it from 9am to 5pm for just €65 , that was including petrol. We drove to the blue caves which is as far as you are allowed to go. Would def reccomend getting a boat , you can stop at any beach on the way , this was our first time doing this and there were no problems. Its very easy to anchor . Another day we went to the water park . It was my first time at a water park and we absaloutly loved it . Back at our apt the pools are great . My favourite is the one right in front of the beach . The beach is gorgeous and the water is very shallow for about 100 metres out so it was very safe for my 4 year old. The water is so clear so we got snorkling gear for swimming about , my 10 year old got great fun out of this.
The food here is brilliant . We ate somewhere different every night and every night the food was brilliant and great value , for the four of us we never spent more than €50.
We didnt go to the shipwreck.............. thats our excuse to come back next year :)
