Alykanas Village Hotel
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Alykanas
Reviewed 1 November 2011

My partner and I stayed at this hotel at the end of April/beginning of March 2011 and we were pleased to find out that a lot of bad reviews were not entirely true.

Our room was very spacious and comfortable. When we first were checked in we were a bit disappointed with the location of the room as it was overlooking open fields with just a side sea view, however after a few days we realized that that was the best possible location as we could not hear noise from the entertainment venue or children playing at the pool area (or a music played at the pool area non stop).

The cafe on the territory of the hotel is limited in choices and only serves burgers, omelets and pica's, so if you want to try some local cuisine walk to the town instead.

The swimming pools were good, but a little overcrowded with children, so you couldn't relax and read a book without being splashed with water.

In general this is a perfect hotel for a family with children as there was a lot of daytime and evening time activities for children. However we were looking for a different holiday so ventured out a lot!

If you want to relax and swim without being bothered - we found the best place: The Mill Bar (go to the hotel beach and turn right, you will only need to walk around 5 minutes untill you will see sign for it and entrance). This place offers lovely selection of snack and drinks and a private swimming pool for it's visitors. It is very secluded and owners are very friendly , we end up going there every day! I only wish we would find it sooner!!! As well as it does awesome Greek Night, we had a fantastic time there!

Oh by the way do not book excursions at the hotel, they will charge you more that a local organizers. If you want to visit shipwreck (i highly recommend) go to the beach and turn right after The Mill Bar you will see a little blue hut on the beach "Blue Dolphin" they are very friendly and offer very good price and relatively private tour (in the hotel they offer you the trip on the 100 people boat, when here there will be a maximum of around 15 of you), highly recommend!

It was a great holiday and we will certainly come back to this beautiful island, however we will stay at the different hotel. But that is mainly because we would like a more of a couple's retreat.

Just back from a 10 day last minute holiday with a baby. Resort is set up for kids with creche and kids club, soft play etc. and so relaxing for parents. Pools are nice (cold at this time of year) and sea and beach fine with lovely views.
Rooms are clean and well furnished - we upgraded into a two room appartment half way through via the Thompson rep which was easy and good value. Booked cot and high chair through Thompson too - very expensive if done through hotel.
Bar food was poor - expensive and not very exciting - better to go elsewhere in the village.
Walk into Alykes for a nice coffee (not greek) in the illy cafe.

Nothing is too much trouble for these people, we were made to feel comfortable from the moment we arrived, pools clean and tidy, rooms spotless, even when it rained like youve never seen before the hotel staff broke out the sun parasols so we could get back to our apartment,
++ point, people are not allowed to get up at 5am and reserve sun loungers, if you do towels are taken away and put at reception, village is two min walk and lined with tavernas and small bars, all excellent for food and drinks, horse drawn carriages are on hand to take you if you want a ride for a few euros, best find was walk down the beach and pop in The Mill Bar

On arrival at Alykanas Village Hotel we instantly knew we'd made the right choice of a last minute break. Gloria and her staff in reception very helpful. Reps kind and informative.
Our room, as requested on a high floor, exceeded our expectations for Greece. Lovely balcony overlooking pool, spacious room, being a four bedded studio and the kitchen, to our surprise,had a microwave, kettle, toaster and two ringed electric cooker and extracter fan. We also had a bath/shower in an adequate bathroom.

The pool was very cold so I didn't get my usual swims, but the sea was still quite warm so I managed a few day's dips. The sea was crystal clear and very very shallow for a long way out. We used the free sunbeds on the Neraida Restaurant Beach, and ate and drank there. It was a typically greek tavern, good value food and frequented by greeks and ex british pats.

The Village was very very quiet, almost deserted, but it was late in the season. All the restaurants we ate in were fine, and all had special offer main meals, ranging from 4.50 to 4.95 euros.

The local tractor/train to Vertzgio was well worth the 12 euros. A quaint museum where you were allowed to touch items, and it had all been put together by the owner Spiros, who was a character himself, also being the driver of the train, and the owner of the Kakia Rahi taverna.

Unfortunately the good weather we arrived to on the 11th only stayed until the Friday night when we had a terrific storm, torrential rain, thunder and lightening, which lasted well over 24 hours. In fact it caused localised flooding, cutting short our Island Tour. However, even in the pouring rain we could see the charm of Makrialos Beach and St Nicholas Beach, so unspoilt. However, our clear calm sea had become yukky and merky, with quite a surf. As we left on Tuesday, the weather was sunny again!!!!

The dogs at the hotel did not bother us, in fact, they always had wagging tails and seemed very friendly. A few of the children staying seemed to adopt them for the week! One especially seemed to like a dip in the sea.

I hope to go back to this hotel next year, taking my husband and part of our family, providing the price is right, as it has to be in school holidays.

Did not like the hard mattress on the bed, thought it was ok for my friend. Obviously a personal choice!!!

Room Tip: High floor for good views, but there is no lift.
