We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Alkion for the 2nd time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves again.
Our room was spotless and cleaned everyday except Sundays by the very hard working cleaners, towels are changed when you like by simply leaving them in the shower. Beds were also changed regularly.
The food is very good, breakfast is quite basic but adequate, cooked breakfast can be bought for 2.50 or you could get a breakfast on the strip for around 3 euros.
Dinner, in our opinion, was very good. Plenty of choice and always hot. My husband is a fussy eater and always found something to eat and filled up completely. Desserts were available if you wanted and we did not witness the 'handing out one each' approach as other reviews have stated - many people had more than one! The same applied to the meal - if you wanted to go up more than once then you could.
Lunchtime meals are great value for money and of excellent quality. Specials are always available for under 4 euros including a soft drink.
All of the hotel staff are great - Mario & Maria at breakfast and lunchtimes and Deano, Christos etc in the evening - everyone so, so friendly and hardworking, right through to Spiros who keeps the hotel safe at night, we had many a chat and laugh with him.
The whole hotel is kept immaculately clean, the pool area is great and always enough sun beds to go around, no litter anywhere.
The hotel is in a perfect area, just a short walk to the main strip and nightlife (close enough but far enough away to be unaffected by any noise), and again, just a short walk to the beach & Canal d'Amour.
There is entertainment every evening, tribute acts, Greek night, bingo - we stayed for some of these but normally went down to the strip - Madisons recommended (Take Two are well worth a watch!) and huge recommendation of Siesta Bar, we spent time here every evening.
All in all, we had a fantastic holiday and highly recommend the Alkion. We cannot wait til next time!
