“Two weeks of joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This was our 4th holiday at the Bitzaro grande and were not disappointed .every thing about it was good from the drinks to the food . It is a great place to chill out and meet now people. We always get a taxi from the airport (17euro) it saves all the hassle and you are at the hotel in 5-10mins .all the staff are great and go out the way to help you.going back next year as its the only place we can truly chill out ....

Room Tip: Even though you are all inc go to the olive tree(5 mins from the hotel towards the strip on left han...

Stayed for two weeks and had a lovely time. Had previously requested 2 x rooms on higher floor did not get what we asked for on arrival got one on 1st floor and 1 on 4th but reception moved us following day. Hotel spotlessly clean. Food very good standard but distinct lack of fresh fruit, first time we have had to go out and buy fruit whilst staying in a 4 star hotel. Don't bother with packed lunch - a sandwich - make your own at breakfast and take it with you to the beach, again bit of a let down here for packed lunch, norm is a sandwich, piece of fruit and piece of cake, so a couple of areas which could be improved upon. Grounds lovely, short stroll to Kalamaki beach. Hotel staff very friendly and always willing to assist. All in all very high standard hotel and can understand why people go back year after year.

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.
We met some great friends on this holiday,thanks to Tina and Richard. Lucy and Wilf for making our holiday so much more special for meeting you , See you next year ,ALREADY BOOKED, can't wait ,bring it on 2014 ...........If after reading this review you think this hotel is for you .. JUST BOOK IT ...YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED ...........

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent ....

We have been to the Bitzaro twice and have enjoyed both trips the food is of a good quality there is a good selection and should please most people, not far from the main street about a 5min walk but set back off the main road so very quiet. You do get a bit of noise through the day from aircraft landing and taking off but does not spoil the holiday drinks are very good and the staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are very nice clean and bright, one thing I would say if you go alinclusive do go out to eat as there are some fantastic resturants down the street and 1 of the best is just as you get up onto the main road turn right and its just across the road good food great service and atmosphere. the evening entertainment is not going to be to every ones liking but its what you make of it, they have a nice terraced area up stairs if you don't want to sit down stairs for the entertainment, very clean hotel and wouldn't put anyone off going to this hotel.

Room Tip: All I can say is that we have never heard people complain about the rooms

my wife and I stayed for 2 weeks at bitzaro 15 - 29 sept...it was a great hotel with great food,staff,and excellent location.Theres not much to do in the evening for children but as it was out of season there werent many here which was great for us. ALL of the staff are really friendly and extremely helpfull should you need anything from them. The entertainment staff are fantastic , nothing is too much trouble and they have so much energy and made us laugh EVERY DAY.Even on there days off they came to the resort to check guests were ok or they took guests out on trips, they encouraged every one to join in and have a laugh. This is a wonderful place to stay and kalamaki does have something for everyone from shops bars clubs and even a water park. The next towns are only 6-8 kilometres away and easy to get to by the local bus or cheap taxi you must explore this island its so easy to get around. We found that the evening entertainment after the bingo finished at 9.45 was very varied and they encouraged everyone to join in and we had a scream, and when we didnt want to watch it we chatted in the lounge areas away from the noise of the shows and made friends with loads of the guests from all different walks of life. An excellent place to come and stay and soak up the Greek experience.We will definately be returning in the coming years.

Room Tip: rooms numbered 300's are quieter as they are away from the main building.

We have just returned from yet another BRILLIANT holiday at The Bitzaro Grande. On previous occasions it has just been my Husband and myself. This September we were joined by our two sons, their partners, and my best friend who is a single traveller. We had always told them about how wonderful this Hotel has been, but as soon as they arrived .... they all agreed we were right. Once again, the entertainment team were as energetic as always, this year being joined by a delightful young man called Lee .. who fit in really well. My Husband and I were given a maisonette on this occasion. This is a two-floored layout with stairs and two balconies - one facing the pool and the other facing the back of the hotel and with a view of the sea. Our single friend had a double room, with all the usual excellent amenities, and a pool-facing balcony, and our sons and their partners each had a maisonette, complete with kitchen/dining area and large seating area, plus double bedroom and balcony views of the pool. They were all thrilled, as were we. As always, the food was plentiful for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the choice was excellent. We have only just got back home, but are already discussing booking again for next year. Great thanks go to ALL staff, - reception, kitchen, entertainment and bar staff, and this year, Nikki on the pool bar had some welcome help from a new staff member called Alex, who - as with all staff - was attentive and extremely helpful. Great thanks must go also to the cleaners who tidy the room and sort the beds every day. There are absolutely NO negative comments we could make about this Hotel, and we are looking forward to going back again next year, and hopefully for many years to come.
