Great Staff, too many kids A review of Alykanas Beach Apart-Hotel
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.
We chose to go in May to avoid children....but the place was full of them. Why were they not at school?? They took over the pool, covered in blow up boats and parents happy to let them scream all day. We chose to lie onthe small beach at the front of the hotel, as the parents were more respectable there and didnt let there kids run wild.
Now for the good parts, the staff are excellent and happy all the time, good food in bar, little expensive. The resort itself is rustic with great restaurants and if you go along to the neighbouring resort of Alikes you will find a few excellent restaurants too. Its more suited to couples in Alikes wheres Alykanas attracts more familes. People very friendly and weather great. Finally, dont go to these apartments if you want peace and quiet because the kids and parents (who drink and shout at the top of there voices in the hotel bar at 2am) have no respect for holiday makers without kids and thought they owned the hotel. The bar is open till 2am and plays loud music till 2am!! Otherwise, a very high standard propery which would benefit from becoming a Thomson Gold Property...ADULTS ONLY!!!
