my wife and i have just spent a week at the village. the apartments are in a fantastic position right on the beach, the pools are great and communal areas very clean and the staff friendly. depending on which apartment you get there may be late noise from bar area. there are also a few apartments that dont get the sun at all. we vacated room at 10 am and pick up was not till 2 am next morning but there is baggage room and a showering area to use whenever you want, they also give you towels for this. would definately use again even if it was just for the location
WE'VE HAD SUCH GREAT HOLIDAYS HERE WE'RE GOING AGAIN IN MAY, THIS WILL BE OUR 3RD TIME, CANT WAIT..
Another great holiday at the ABV. Gloria and her staff were very welcoming and helpful during the stay. The complex was very clean and maintained well. The snack bar had improved a lot from last year.
Thanks to all of the staff at the village, in particular Gloria and Dennis the barman. A very children focused hotel set in idyllic surroundings. And for us oldies we could escape the noise of the reps by going to the circular pool. The cost of the on site snack bar was extortionate. 5 euros for a beer and 3-5 euros for a toastie, you can get around that by buying beer in the supermarket and taking it to the pool area at 1.40 euros for a can of stella, met and made friends with some good people. would I go back and stay? no, stayed at the contessina in tsivili last year, it was a lot quieter. Looks like we've reached the age of peaceful holidays
Just back from a week at the ABV. 2 adults and 3 children. Everything much quieter in October. Kids club easy to get into, no need to get up to book loungers, no hastle at the entertainment. We were told during the summer that during one week there were over 200 children onsite. During our week around 30.
Room for 5 was spacious if somewhat bare, toilet had a tendancy to smell at various points during the day and no we hadn't just been in!
Entertainment staff excellent.
We have just come back from 2 weeks here and loved it...
Stayed at the village from 1/6 - 15/6.
Just back from the above! what a fantastic place, staff lovely, Gloria the manager was lovely Thomson staff out of this world and all did a fantastic job entertainment in the day or night was fantastic you did'nt have to join in if you didn't want to but it was great fun my kids loved it (12 yrs old and 3 yr old) Jessica loved Thomson the Dog put most of all she loved roly moly smolie and was very jealous of Juciy lucy marrying him but all in all fantastic very easy to get to other places and some days the weather was not that good!!! worst we have ever had in greece!!!!!!!!!!! but red hot when we left yesterday:( when we arrived our family and my brother's family had lovely downstairs apartments but the had put my 70 year old father and my mother who does not walk well up on top floor!!!!!!! but they did soon have them moved downsatirs and they stayed there whole fortnight! only critisism I have is that there are not enough bins around the pool, and some people found it too hard to go and put any rubbish they left in a bin!!!!! and also the 2nd week (Whit week) it got ridiculous putting towels out it got to the stage if you hadn't put your towels out by 6.3am there was no way you would get a sunbed!!!!!!!! dread to think what its like in 6 week hols but overall a fantastic holiday, lovely place Thomson staff fab I cannot see anyone not enjoying this place.
We have just come back from a superb 2 weeks at the ABV. The entertainment team of Rowley, Lucy and Dawn are fantastic , hilarious and friendly and they encourage you to join in without being too much. The pool by the beach is away from the entertainment and is much quieter but we stayed round the 2 other pools as our children were really keen to be joining in. The kids club reps were also fab and friendly although we had to presign the children into the entertainment during half term week as numbers were very high. Rooms we stayed in on the ground floor had 2 bedrooms and a kitchen area, bedrooms were very spacious and we also had bath and shower. Couldnt ask for more ! Mini market on site was great plenty of fresh bread and milk every day some other items were a bit pricey but you pay extra because it is convenient. Snack bar by pool served yummy bacon rolls . Wish we were still there.

Hi again Helen
Hi Helen I am sure you will love ABV it has microwave, toaster, elec kettle so much better than most appartments in Alykanas. Not sure how many in your party but if you can get one of the appartments on the front section it's lovely opening your door to a lovely sea view on a morning.
Hi, my partner ,her 11yr old daughter & I have just booked to stay from 25th june to 10th july & wondered if anyone had a contact address/e-mail for the alykanas village so that we can request a studio apt away from the bar area as some reviews say it gets quite noisy at night. Also can anyone tell us the best places to book excursions as all agree the thomson prices are a good bit dearer & what are the best excursions to do. Thanks Helen
We are staying at the beach village for two weeks mid May - early June and booked because the reviews at the time were brilliant. We booked with Thompsons, but since then have read that the entertainment is going to be a bit too much and you won't be able to relax. We enjoy entertainment to a certain extent, but at other times want to be left to our own devices. Another concern is how late the entertainment will be at night and if our young daughter will be kept awake at night until midnight. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
