... euros - you live and learn in Italy Boarded Splendour of the Seas about 2.30 and checked in sailed about 5 pm and I have to admit the departure from Venice was spectacular.

22 May Katakolon Our day in Katakolon, a small Greek fishing village, once important as the port to export currants to the rest of Europe was unexpectedly pleasant. It was sunny and quite hot today.We intended to do very little (just catch up on emails and blog ) in the little fishing village we berthed at, so we had a leisurely start and strolled into town. We didn't expect much and were pleasantly surprised how clean and friendly it was. Ended up on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alykanas Beach Apart-Hotel
We have just returned from 2 weeks here and everything was marvellous. The accommodation was very clean & comfortable and the staff very friendly. We loved the proximity of the beach to the hotel. This was out first visit but will definitely not be the last.
just came back from here on 17th july, had a fantastic time. The staff were brilliant with the kids. Reception were very helpful, Rooms kept very clean with daily changing of bedding and towels. Plenty of other families with children to keep our kids happy. The only negative point is when we went to get lunch in the bar on Sunday before our flight home, we could not get served as a lot of the local greek people go there and the place was to busy. This also happened to another couple the week before. Could probably do with a couple more kitchen staff. Also we found that on the second week of our holiday people were reserving sunbeds from 7.30am with their towels and often not coming out to the pool till after lunch. Other than that the place was excellent with all areas kept spotless clean.
The ABV is the best resort on the Island, it has 3 large outdoor pools and 1 indoors which are all kept to a very high standard. The apartments/studios have the best facilities for self catering with cooker,microwave,kettle and all pots & pans you could need. The bathroom has a bath and shower with a curtain!!! The accommodation is cleaned every day and cleaned very well, the cleaners are happy and go out of there way to talk to you. All the staff are friendly and will adapt things to meet your needs if you ask. Where ever you go there will be others that have to moan, but to be honest with you there is nothing that can be moaned about here. The entertainment is very limited but town is only a 5min walk and its nice to have a look around. GO AND BOOK YOU WILL ENJOY THIS COMPLEX I GUARENTEE. We went in 2002 as a party of 5 this year we returned as a party of 17 and next year we are looking at a party of 29 !!! Look forward to seeing your reviews . All the best.
This is a high standard property for Greece with lovely rooms and well kept grounds. The room we were given face out to the sea but the only problem was it was directly above a childrens playground. Not good when parents let there childresn scream and kick balls against the wall at 2am, while they are getting tanked up in the bar. We complained and the noise did go down a bit. The view was spectacular though.
This hotel was very nice compared with other Greek hotels I've stayed in - we even had a shower curtain! The staff were friendly, everything was clean and the rooms were fine, although simply furnished.
Have just been to Alykans for a week's holiday in May 2005. Apartments were very spacious, clean with good facilities. The pool area was clean and well kept and was a good size with a separate water sports pool. The snack bar was reasonably priced with a good menu and very nice snacks. On-site mini-market is reasonably priced, although super-markets are only several hundred yards away as well. Definately a resort for younger children rather than teenagers. The beach area is a bit disappointing and needs a good tidy-up although a better beach area is only a few hundred yards away (with limited Watersports), although Tsivili Beach had more watersports
We have just returned from two weeks here, and although we enjoyed our holiday, we will probably not go back. This is because there was just not enough for older kids to do in the evenings. We had bad weather for the first few days, but the kids were still happy enough at the indoor pool. The apartments themselves are very good, spacious and clean, although I would agree that towels need to be changed more than twice a week. The mini market was open, but stock was running down as it was the end of the season. The snack bar is really good value, huge helpings of decent food at reasonable prices. The beach is lovely and the view from the beachside pool is beautiful. We ate at the Greedy Greek and Apollo restaurants most often, and found them best. If you go to Alykanas next year, I can recommend the Greek Night at the Letsos Bar, run by the lovely Eleni. tremendous fun. Had it not been for the two evenings we spent there, it would have been a fairly dull fortnight. Back to Crete for us next time, although Zante itself is a lovely island.
Having just returned from a great holiday on Zante, the only problem was the airport itself, being so small, but typically Greek! We stayed at the Alykanas Beach Village which was excellent. The room was spotless, beds made every day,floors mopped, it could not have been nicer. There is a well stocked supermarket which is open till late every night. The whole complex was clean,and the superb swimming pools and beach location were to be envied. Excellent! So good in fact,we have just booked for next year again. I have never been twice to the same place,and have travelled to lot's of Greek islands,but this was the best holiday by far! Try it!
We have returned back from a 2 week holiday in Zante staying at the Alykanas Beach Village. The apartments are great. very spacious for a family of 4 - two bedrooms, a dining kitchen and a bathroom. The apartments were also very clean, although the towels could have been changed more often (twice a week) The pool was very big & clean - great for kids - Pool bar serving snacks was very good value for money. The beach was just down 5 or 6 steps from the front pool in the complex. The Beach is clean and the sea is so clear and warm infact the best sea I have ever been in.
