We stayed at the Zante Sun at the end of May/early June for two weeks and had a brilliant relaxing time.
Like Southgone North (below) we had room 125 a "promo" room. Before we left I e mailed the hotel and requested an upgrade and offered to pay the difference direct and to be fair they said they would upgrade me, when I arrived, if they were able. I made the same offer when I arrived but the hotel was full so it was no go.
The promo rooms are basic and do not get any sun, but on the plus side they do not get so hot and you only sleep in it after all. We only had cause to turn the air con (free) on three or four times for a short while. Cleaner kept it really clean.We never had the noise problem, the Bar was usually clear by about 23.00 so that was no hassle. Basically you pay your money and take your choice. On balance it wouldn't worry me to go back there in a promo depending on the time of year.
All the staff without exception are excellent and a credit to the hotel. Never had to wait longer than a minute for a drink and they were all good for a laugh and a joke. Found ourselves actually missing them for a few days when we got back!
Plenty of choice for food with a lot of Greek dishes which made a nice change from the normal buffet fare. Salad Bar was also very impressive.
The Hotel is ideally placed well away from Laganas to avoid the noise, but only a 20 minute coast walk to do some shopping etc. The Village is only five minutes away with several bars and Tavernas.
No problem with sun beds-plenty for all and the pool and pool area are kept extremely clean.
Tips, I can offer. Take a Beach/Pool towel with you or buy one when you get there (5e), The hotel charges 14e per towel for 2 weeks. The bigger coaches cannot get to the hotel and some people were dropped off and had to wheel their luggage 100 or so metres. If you are not that mobile you might want to pre book a private transfer or a get a taxi from the airport. Finally if you have a late flight the hotel wanted 30e for a late departure, so budget for it.
Tavernas to try El Grego (next door) and Ole Ole in the village.
If you like peace and quiet and total relaxation, go for it. I will be very surprised if you do not enjoy it.
