I'm staying at Danny's end of May, I'll look out for the blue hair ;D

You couldn't have chosen better accommodation for a first time visit to Alykanas, I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Being a diplomat, I'd say whilst you are staying in Alykanas you can walk into Alykes at any time and form your own opinion on the matter..   ;)

Well said Sonic.  We normally stay in Alykanas but wonder into Alykes on a daily basis.
The resorts are so close together I really don't understand why this subject keeps cropping up.  ???

Your right there Tony, its only done for a bit of fun. Having said that my score for the two resorts are Alykes 21 Alykanas 1.  That's how many times I have stayed in each resort but I walk through Alikanas most days while I am on holiday. My feeling is as the two resorts are so close together they should be known collectively as ALYKES.        (http://www.getsmile.com/emoticons/energizer-smileys-51935/lol5.gif)

 :oAlykanas will mobilise so stand down you Alykesians. Resume you rightful place in the natural order of things and cease this futile attempt to raise your swampland to the glorious heights now occupied by Alykanas. 8)

I have to say I have stayed in Alykanas 3 times at Grapevines and never had a drink in any bar in Alykes. (Sorry). I had a meal one at the Olympic which was lovely. I have been to the beach in Alykes and walked to the supermarket.. I think both villages are lovely, but we always seem to eat and drink in Alykanas. Staying this year for the first time in Vassilikos - as I love the beaches. ;D 8)

On our three previous visits to Alykanas we have stayed at the Beach , Village and Letsos so we have always been close to Alykes ....we walk over there at least twice a week.
The walk on an evening along the canal is a pleasure and something we very much look forward to.
Our fave in Alykes being the Astoria.

 8) You'll love the Buca bar on the beach at Alykes and also just a few yards from the beach is the Jungle Bar and Spikey's. Both really good bars with great banter, music and hosts. ;)

i,ve made a bit of  a boob i was looking at the street  view of the two resorts last night and when i saw the centre of alykes i  remembered thats where i  drove through so i,ve never been  to alykanas , but not to worry       the two look close enough to get the best of both

Alykanas is by far the better of the two  ;) ;)  I have stayed in both, and like to stay in Alykanas and stroll through to Alykes for a change of scenery :)

Which ever one you chose, as everyone says, they are so close it doesnt matter, you can walk between the two and sample the wonderful hospitality of all the bars and restaurants.

Completely OFF TOPIC  :o  but....

Was wondering if anyone knew what "Alykanas" means, if Alykes means "Salt Flats" it must be something similar ?  ::)

Back on topic, there's not a lot of difference, they're both full of Brits all year round  ;D

Peace

The exact literal modern Greek translation is...

"Village near the flat salty place that is superior in every way. Whatever you do if you have the choice stay there instead of the other place. It's better. Honest."

I knew the Greek night classes would come in handy one day  8).

Hahahahaha  ;D

Excellent answer from the man who will be holidaying this year in the vastly superior "OLD" salt free and not particularly flat village where I live.

Cheers Mike  ;)
