“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from a 2 week holiday here. Hotel was spotlessly clean everywhere. The rooms were spacious and very clean.fridge in room too.stayed in room 328 overlooking the pool,but was quiet.plenty of sunbeds ,if you weren't lucky enough to get 1 at the pool side there were plenty more on the grass.plenty of choice in dining room breakfast,lunchtime and evening.or if you preferred the snack bar was open and you can order burgers,rolls or toasties .nickey at the poolside bad was very efficient.entertainment day and night if you wanted it.plenty of games to join in with but staff were not pushy if you wanted to just relax. The hotel is situated near the main strip with plenty of bars and restaurants.had a taxi to Zante town which cost 10 euros,lots of shops there.there is nothing to complain about in this hotel.staff were really friendly and animation team worked really hard. met some really nice people .would definitely recommend this hotel .hope to go back in near future.

Just returned home after another wonderful holiday thanks to the delightful Bitzaro Grande Hotel.
After last year, I didn't think it were possible to top the time my Wife and I had. But, I must say that this was the case. This place really is as good as the vast majority of the reviews written on Trip Advisor. From the moment you walk through the door, you instantly feel right at home.

The Bitzaro prides itself on a happy, friendly environment and boy do they achieve it. The mix of nationalities is mainly British and Dutch, with French, Belgian and all get on great. Tom and the gang entertain you day and night, making sure you have the best time. The pool games are legendary, the Lilo race was my favourite... A relay race across the pool picking up team mates, a real good laugh. Also, darts and Pool table games. One minute games, all great fun! All the night time shows are also very good... Starts with Kids disco. Followed by 2 games of Bingo, where you could win up to 300 Euros per game, hilariously called by the talented Tom Ganzer, a man I can call a future life long friend. Then Showtime! A mix of Karaoke, then you'll have Quiz night, then you'll have a improvised and made up comedy sketches, all very funny! Greek nights, dancing.

The location of the hotel is central to anything you could want. From the Supermarket not 5 minute walk to all Restaurants, also a 5 minute walk. If nightclubs are your thing, Laganas is only 5 Euros in a cab. Airport is 12 Euros in a cab. There are some fantastic Restaurants on the Kalamaki strip. Essence was out of this world as was the Olive Tree. The Cave Bar up the hill was a lovely romantic place with seating areas cut out of the rock and a round Turret at the top with seating and battlements all around, a great setting and a nice touch is that there is a Mini Moke Jeep that takes you up the hill to it free of charge.

Zante is the most beautiful place I've ever been. Although we went All-Inclusive, we hired car and toured the Island... Top view of the Shipwreck was a sight that must be seen to be believed. Also, Puerto Roxy was lovely with its rock diving platform and a Taverna with the best tatsziki in Greece...lol.... ST. Nicholas Port, also very nice... 1 hour boat trips for 10 Euros to the blue caves and shipwreck.

My Wife and I can not wait to be back with our Bitzaro family once again.

We have just returned from our fantastic holiday in the Bitzaro Grande. It was so relaxing but also there was loads to do. The food was great and loads of selection. The staff were amazing and so helpful and down to earth. Entertainment and pool games were good. Definitely returning.

Just returned from a 10 night stay at the Bitzaro,this was our fourth stay in 5 years, we found the Hotel and staff to be of top quality as in previous years, the food and choice amazing, the rooms and cleaning top class and the staff as helpful as ever. No queues at the bars and restaurant areas, the evening entertainment in the pool bar as good as ever, with Tomas always doing the best with his team, good money bingo as well.
Like before nothing to really complain about just one thing, the restaurant no smoking areas fill up very quick at mealtimes, and if you sit in the outside rear section beware of guests lighting up after they have finished eating with total disregard for others !!!!
Enjoyed our stay yet again and well be booking for next year very soon.

We came here on the 16th June 2013 until 27th June 2013. The room was ok except the toilet did leak but was fixed the next day, when you had a shower it was a tussle with the shower -curtain and the water flooded the whole floor. The maid service was excellent. The reception area was excellent. The pool was excellent The bar service was excellent, how he remembered every body's drinks was amazing. In the restaurant the food was ok but the choice was the same. Like two Pork dishes or two Turkey dishes on the same night. How much crème caramel can one serve up and jelly in less than a fortnight in different disguises. We were recommended this hotel by my son who came last year with his girl friend and daughter and said how well the hotel looked after them because his daughter was poorly and had to spend most of the time in the hospital. Wished we had kettle and tea/coffee in the room and as it was all inclusive thought you could get food after 7pm.

Thank you for writting this review, thank you for the lovely comments and we really hope to see you and your family again.

Just to let you know that from the first of July all arrivals have found tea and cofee making facilities in the room. So next time you visit our hotel you will be able to use your kettle and cups in the room.

Also please allow me to make a clariffication on the choices of food comment.
On the dinner buffet of our restaurant we serve at least 3 main courses, and different vegetables to accompany it with. Some days you might find one of these main courses served in two different ways, however this will not mean that you will not have the two other main courses served on the same day. I hope this is clear for anyone reading this review, should you need any further information or clariffication on this please don't hesitate to contact the hotel direclty on bitzarogrande@bitzarohotels.gr

Went in May, weather first two days was cold and rainy, after that, wow. This hotel was one of the best for food, the choice was amazing and the desserts were out of this world. No waiting at the bar for drinks, all the staff worked really hard. We had a bottle of complimentary wine when we arrived as there was a slight mix up with the room, Took a coach trip around the island, well worth doing, including boat trip. Greek people are so friendly, always want to talk, Would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: Rooms in the 700, overlooking front entrance. very quiet, both day and night.
