For me there wasn't an awful lot to do in the resort. There are service busses to Zakynthis town but they are unreliable and very few and far between. So you either go on organised tours or hire a car. You can go around the town and to Alykes in a horse and carriage as there are no taxis either.

This is a low key resort within walking distance of Alikes. There are many decent restaurants and bars to choose from plus good super markets and a handful of tourist shops. If you enjoy boat trips there are regular turtle spotting trips and a round the island cruise which leaves from the small harbour every day. Many places offer car hire and bike rentals. We chose a quad from Carmens. Best price and she is quite a character. The beach is a long narrow sweep and safe as it is shallow for quite a way out. Alykanas is a great place for couples and families who want a relaxing holiday.

It's a mixed aged resort. It has lots of bars and restaurants catering for different tastes. The beach is good. A plus is that Alykes is only 10 minutes walk away, so 2 resorts for the price of 1. There are lots of places on the main strip where you can book trips /excursions to any where on the island. There is a small water park in resort but I have never been and do not know where it is as its not my thing. A lot of the bars and some of the restaurants have children's play areas. As in all of the Greek islands I have been to, the bars and restaurants like children and accept them with open arms (of course if they are not likely to appear on the Jeremy Kyle show). All in all a good resort.

Loved this resort, very quiet but such lovely people in the bars and restaurants serving. Apollon was my favourite restaurant the food was amazing. Saki at the Sakisfaction bar & Nikos at the D.N.A. bar really looked after us, the Mill Bar pool bar with rooftop terrace was amazing although we didn't visit at night, it is on the agenda for the next visit, as I shall definitely be going back. All people within the resort were very friendly and made you welcome.

This is a pretty, safe and family friendly resort with great beaches. The restaurants we particularly liked were The Lemon Tree (horse and carriage at 10 Euros will take you up there as it's not on the main strip and they do a free mini bus back to your apartments at the end - go on a Thursday when it is live music etc - don't miss this taverna as it's not on the main strip). Memories was nice too (near Elpida) but I did get a bit tired of the friendly, but slightly pushy woman outside. She was nice, but I always felt we had to run the gauntlet as we passed! Maybe it's because they're at the end of the strip so have to pull in the trade? Cosy Corner (tucked away, right at the other end - near the White House Studios and behind Bonkers Bar) is well worth a visit if you're craving a burger! We thought the Chinese was over priced and a bit disappointing.

Alykanas resort is a quiet resort, very flat so good for the older people and no loud bars. We have been about 8 times now so we like it. There could do with a few more bars but there are lots of eating places. The beach is far the best I've ever been on, so flat and soft sand no pebbles, and the water is very shallow good for kids. They have a few water sports available, so something for everyone, and a great beach bar called Ammos, good food and service and very friendly. There are things to keep the little ones busy too e.g. trampoline, slides, swings etc. so all in all a good resort.

Alykanas is a great place, ideal if you like it to be nice and flat. There are some great restaurants and bars just on the door step, the beach is about 5 minutes walk. The next village on is Alykes, a nice stroll of about 30 minutes away. I would highly recommend anybody staying in this part.

The village itself is quiet, but it's a great place, there are lots of restaurants and bars. It's all on the flat, there are some hills but in the hot weather, it's too tiring for us. If you like you can walk or get a horse and cart to the next village, it's a lovely stroll beside a river, it's so peaceful. <br /> <br /> The beaches are outstanding and very safe. If you're after a cocktail, go down to Busters bar, Ollie and Anna will make you more than welcome. When we first went to Alykanas it was very bare and basic, it's now come on in leaps and bounds. We've had 25 years of pure bliss in Alykanas and will continue to do so. Highly recommend.

The Alykes Garden Village is actually in Alykes, the neighbouring resort is Alykanas. Alykes is fabulous, the beach is amazing, beautiful soft sand and warm sea, great food to be found in the tavernas and bars at very reasonable prices, people are very friendly, lots of boat trips and excursions to be had.

Beaches

There is a lovely sandy beach at Alykanas and you can walk along the beach to the resort of Alykes Village. The beach is perfect for snorkelling.

Out and About

Alykanas is a laid back and relaxed resort that is known for its slow pace of life. If you are looking for nightlife and fast food restaurants then this resort is not for you! Horse drawn carriages can be found in the village and used as a taxi to the nearby resorts. A small choice of local shops are available to browse around and watersports can be found on the beach. Food in this resort consists of mainly authentic Greek dishes including freshly caught fish. There are many tavernas to choose from and these friendly local establishments make the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing meal and local glass of wine.

Nearby attractions

The resort offers a range of boat trips including fishing and turtle watching trips. A popular excursion is to the Smugglers Cove. The 16th Century monestry of St John the Baptist can be found nearby and Skinari with its Spa cave are also worth visiting.
