We didn't actually stay here but we used the beach facilities everyday of our holiday. The sunbeds were 7 euros for two beds, and we had great table service on the beach. The food was lovely, we tried something different everyday, including chicken souvlaki and banana and chocolate paninis!
We were looked after by a lovely Lithuanian girl who was incredibly polite and friendly as were all the staff including Wayne, George and Gordon at the watersports.

This hotel was a last minute R&R break and was recommended by a friend, I had a week there on my own early September and was overwhelmed.
5* it's not but that is more than made up for by the way the staff greet and look after you Jimmy (Speedy) is non-stop and nothings a problem while Julie is attentive and always happy to see you and they never seem to forget a name, Katarina is exactly the same it's a family run concern with lots of repeat business from what I could tell and they will definitely be getting my business again. clean, tidy and caring a great little Gem.

Room Tip: All rooms are basic but very clean and well kept.

Although we never stayed at the hotel we used its amenities everyday as we were located on the beach and chose the sun beds which were provided by them.

The staff come doen from the hotel to allow you to order drinks and luch and bring them directly to you on the beach. Alternatively you can go up to the hotel and eat lunch there or use their pool.

We spent many a day here and consequently got to know some of the staff very well .

Friendly and always chatty they like many other locals helped to make our holiday an overall fantastic week . We look forward to going back next year and hopefully catching up with Katrina and Jimmy and not forgetting the two waitresses one from Liverpool who were both very friendly.

Some great laughs and good memories thanks to a fantastic bunch of people .

Called in for a drink after a lovely day on the beach. Service was slow and the beer was 1 euro more than every other bar on beach! Asked to use wifi and was told it would be 10€ for an hour. WHAT???? Every other bar offers free wifi to customers. Left and went to the friendly mill bar. Wont be going back! Such a let down.

So after being unable to get into the Alykanas Beach was recommended the Valais by the owner of the Apollo Restaurant, - I for one will not be returning to the ABH bnut will return to the Valais.
Rooms - basic but very clean, good views and a bath and shower that is beautiful + no shower curtain. Fridge, TV, balcony - what more do you need :)
Pool - one word - STUNNING!, rarely busy, got size and deep - very clean.
Restaurant/Bar - great staff (Jules, Jimmy, Bonnie etc), very friendly, lunch time food is very good especially the gyro's and homemade burgers, eat in most days the food was that good. Evening meals - only eat in once as we like to go to other restaurants in the village.

Katerina and George run a fantastic hotel with hard working dedicated staff and they know everyone by name another great touch - will be back next year definitely (hopefully more than once!).

Hard to improve on what is almost the perfect hotel in a great location

Room Tip: Stayed in 214 - good room views of the hills.

Our second stay and will definately return.Big thankyou to Katrina Jules and Jimmy for looking after us so well. Rooms are clean and comfortable sea view and beutiful location. We were with friends and the Greek buffet night was fantastic thanks to all the staff for an excellent evening the food was amazing. The pool is perfect for the long hot sunny days for some light relief along with the excellent cocktails. Can't wait to return see you soon Valais

As ever the staff at the valais gave top service in every department. Ask for something and they will do their best to deliver, hard working dedicated staff who led by Katerina always gave a smile and givevtop customer service.
If you love water sports check out George and Wayne on the beach just a few strides away.
