“Great value hotel with great pool and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I stayed here in June for 10 nights for a friends birthday party . We all had a brilliant time and our stay at the Ikaros was a big part of that. When you consider the price per night you really could not ask for any more. The rooms are basic but clean and have air con. Also if you can handle being woken up mid mornings the rooms are cleaned daily and linen and towels changed daily which for the price we paid I thought was brilliant. The hotel biggest strength is clearly the pool area which is really nice and great to chill out by all day and plays really good tunes and has a servicable wi fi connection . Mike and his wife and the girls on reception were really charming and helpful at all times ( I disagree with the reviewers opinion below on the staff ) One thing to bear in mind when booking this and its no fault of the staff / hotel that the hotel is a Club 18 - 30 hotel and Laganas is a resort for partying so if you value your sleep between 2.00am - 8.00am do not book this hotel. Also having read some reviews on Trip Advisor prior to my stay I can honestly say that none of our group encountered problems with keys , security or hidden charges when paying on departure. All in all if you want a really good value budget hotel with a really nice pool and helpful friendly staff this is a really good option .

Do not hand your key in to reception before your nights out! I went out for an hour, came back and all my money had been stolen out of my room. Our key was now not in recpetion where we left it. Man behind reception said we never handed in our key in to him and that we had obv stolen our own money. Next morning he surprisingly finds our key! He stole our stuff without a doubt. Keep your keys!!!!!!!
Also was there for 4 days before we had to go and ask to have clean towels , and had no hot water for the 10 days we were there!

I actually spent 4 months in this hotel and I felt very safe, the rooms are cleaned constantly. The family are lovely and the staff. Great place to relax and meet friends! Had a great summer 2012! Thanks everyone at Ikaros! x

Stayed here whilst working in Zante. Initially booked for 4 weeks and ended up staying another 4. Fantastic hotel, lovely family and great atmosphere! This hotel is relatively low cost throughout the whole season, therefore you get what you pay for, obviously it's not perfect as its not a 5* but if you ask and voice any concerns they are always happy to help and correct any problems!! If you want perfection, you have to pay the price! It is very basic, however it is perfect for a cheap get away surrounded by beautiful beaches, nightlife and restaurants. Ikaros is also in a perfect location as it is around a 5 minute walk from the strip (so you can sleep at night)! & about 10 minutes from the beach.. We tended to stay around the pool as it was quite big and always had a great atmosphere. Remember - you don't ask - you don't get! Simples :D

Value for money definitely. This hotel is cheap, in a really good location close to the beach and the strip but not too close as noise levels on the strip are crazy. 5 minutes walk to both. The rooms are basic but clean most rooms overlook the pool I think. The pool itself is nice and during the day music is played to provide a great holiday atmosphere. Cocktails are served all day and are really cheap and tasty here. Basic Hotel but not a let down by any means. Surprisingly happy at this hotel. If you do stay here you MUST eat at the Taj Mahal which is about 100 yards away, the Indian food here is amazing. There are also some really good restaurants and cafes here best food Ive had while on holiday.

Room Tip: We had an end room which seemed more spacious than the others

By far the worst hotel i have ever stayed in!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!! From the pictures the room and hotel looks nice but beyond the pictures it has to be Zantes worst hotel!! Rooms was disgusting with mold all over the bathroom!! We also had money and jewely robbed out of our TRUSTY safe!! Staff are also very rude especially the owner of the hotels restaurant, Zantes worst food aswell! ........ Only nice thing about this hotel was a lady behind reception who was very nice. Other than her.... DO NOT STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just returned from staying at the Ikaros Hotel in Laganas and by reading the reviews before I left I have to admit I was abit concerned. My husband and myself stayed at the hotel the last week of september so we were not expecting it to be busy but when we arrived at lunch time we were not expecting the hotel to be as quite as it was,ok the season is coming to an end, but there were hardly any guests around and the pool was empty. The room was small but clean having been to the Greek Islands before and the price we paid I had an idea not to expect to much!! we did not have to pay for air conditioning or to use the fridge so that was a bonus as it was hot during the day also we could not complain about the location it is on the Kalamaki road so you get abit of noise from traffic but far enough away from the hassle of the main strip. Overall we had a nice relaxing week in Laganas the Ikaros Hotel is a good 2* hotel but not a 3* hotel as advertised through some holiday websites.
