Spent a week here with son, daughter in law and grand daughter aged 5. The complex is well laid out and well maintained. Superb swimming pools and plenty of activities for the little ones. Our two bedroomed apartment was spacious with excellent air conditioning which was very much appreciated as the temperature soared to 43 on three days Our bedroom, however, was on the small side with two very hard single beds and no luxuries like a mirror etc. The bathroom had an over bath shower and also a walk in shower which, I felt needed updating as the grouting looked rather dingy and cracked. The water pressure was low and not always hot.
The staff, especially those concerned with the children, were superb and got every body joining in games and pool side quizzes.
As it was an all inclusive holiday there was always plenty of eating areas to choose from. The main buffet style restaurant certainly offered a grand choice but I am sorry to say we found the offerings rather bland. We were given three tokens to eat out at other nearby restaurants and we took advantage of two of them The first one "World food café" just a very short walk from the complex was a huge disappointment. My son's bruschetta was so dry that when he took a bite the bread crumbled to dust ! which we found quite amusing. My cannelloni contained feta cheese which did go some way to making the dish a little moist. My husband's calamari was good though and the local white wine quite palatable really. The waiter was most concerned at the amount of food that was untouched and, in fairness to him, offered us all another meal which we declined..
The second token was used at Mar a Monti (I cannot remember the name exactly but this, too, is a very short walk from the holiday village) This turned out to be a treat with the spaghetti Bolognese, steak and fish of good quality and taste A very good bottle of pinot grigio accompanied the meal which we all enjoyed.
All in all the Aliathon Holiday Village is a well run, fun place with lovely staff and a fantastic atmosphere, especially for the children.
