Stayed at the Bitzaro Grande from the 12thSept to the 19th Sept for the fourth time. This year.we became Gold members but if you are a returner or a first time holiday maker you will be treated the same, as you are all welcomed into this family run hotel as a friend not just a number on a sheet of paper. You become a gold member on your 4th visit to the Bitzaro, you get the little extras like free safe in the room, 24/7 air con and free pool towels.
We stayed in the same apt that we stayed in last year and was very quiet, it is near the tennis courts/ There is not a lot more that I can say that other reviewers have not said before on this hotel The Bitzaro Grande is a welcoming hotel with lovely friendly staff who will go above and beyond to make your stay one to remember..The restaurant is amazing ,you can sit inside the main building which has air con or there are two terraces either side that are in the open air, plenty of room for all to sit comfortably.We met our favourite waiters again this year they both remembered my husband and myself and came straight over to us with hugs and kisses. The food is excellent and there is many choices ,we always come back from holiday putting on a few pounds here and there,because of the excellent food.
Enertainment ...... is what you want to make of it , it is not like Las Vegas , it is good old cheesy home made funniness that will have you laughing your head off and if you are with a group or friends you will have a great time. There is BINGO every night performed by the ever funny THOMAS who is the resident entertainments manager. To all those people who say, BINGO urrgh it is such a laugh, try it once and you will be hooked and you could win up to 250 euros and sometimes more. There are quizzes kareeoke and shows put on by Thomas and his helpers Judy and the newcomer LEE who I did notice was surrounded by the single girls qiute a lot. There are evening and daytime activities which you can join in if you so wish but are not hassled by the staff to do so. We enjoyed a few daytime activities this year as we had done all the excursions during previous years so had more time to ourselves this year to relax. We did venture out of hotel for a stroll through Kalamaki and one morning decided to try out the FUN TRAIN to go to The Olive Groves and a small ceramic factory, only 10 euros each for about a 3 hr trip well worth the money spent.
ALL IN ALL we had a great holiday once again and thanks must go to all the BITZARO GRANDE staff that work at this fantastic hotel from Ghelley and her front of house management team, to Yannis who remembers you throughout your holiday and also your drinks, to Nicky at the pool side bar who although terribly busy at times always remembers your drinks and always has a smile on her face, to THOMAS and his entertainment team who work non stop morning till night, to the waiters and waitresses and Karen who once you have met will remember your name or room number as she meets you at the restaurant door for dinner and to our lovely little cleaning lady who always had a lovely smile for us every day.and to all the staff at the Bitzaro I have not mentioned.
