A friend and I went June 2012 and we loved the hotel! - We were close to switching as we had read some AWFUL reviews and I'm very happy I didn't. The hotel is basic, cleaned regularly enough, Air-con available, safe, nice clean pool.. but the two things i think i liked most about this hotel is the staff and the location.
First off 'SHOTGUN TONY' is NOT a 'perv' as I have read in other reviews before going. He's a nice guy and he will look after you (and I'm not just talking about girls, the guys staying in the room nearby thought he was a decent bloke), some people claim he is a bit strict but HEY, if you're a drunk teenager who wants to throw a chair off a balcony, I think he has a bit of a right to get a little stricter with you. As long as you treat the room with a bit of respect he will allow you some free drinks, some food etc.
Second, if you're a party-nut (which I assume you are choosing a holiday in Zante) this hotel is perfect. It is, not CLOSE to the strip, its ON the strip!! We met so many other people who complained that their hotel was at least a 15 minute walk away so Angela Studios is great!
Yes there are rules about no alcohol in the rooms but it was never a problem to us - Tony will turn a blind eye to it if he see's you walking in with booze. My advice is just to not wave it in his face, put it in a bag.
Please don't listen to any bad reviews, i certainly do not think this hotel deserves them :)
