This is by far the worst hotel experience i have ever come across. This is my first trip to Zante and when i first arrived i thought it looked beautiful , which it was, I then had the misfortune of pulling up at the Caravel Hotel where we were greeted by hi, heres your keys and your room is outside, charming. After finding our room we found there was no cot , they wanted €6 a night and we were there for 2 weeks, no chance, Also the air conditioning was €5 a day. The rooms were bog standard and are no way 4* The food there was 90% of the time chips and the odd bit of pork, turkey or chicken or fish. Just cooked with a bit of tyme on one day or basil the next. Very repetitive. The entertainment for my 3 daughters (1, 3 and 13) was non existent,unless they played bingo or poker at 11pm . Also when going on to the beach were were charged €3 per deck chair and there were 6 of us a day. They do not own the deck chairs on ether supposed beach so you are charged to lie on the beach, what sort of hotel does this?> Also there is a charge of two euros for 30 minutes of wifi which barely works when you buy it. NO FREE WIFI at a 4* hotel wow.The pool snack bar was disasterous and served just pancakes , chocolate cake or a cocktail weener on a pancake, that was the selection. The pool bar would close at 5pm and that was it until dinner time at 7:30 . They had basic drinks there i.e one labelled beer, one labelled spirit and no such thing as cider. My opiion is avoid, The First choice REP said thomson and first choice have had so much complaints that they will no longer be working with the CARAVEL hotel.
Something which i would say is the KALAVI pub just outside of the hotel does great food, good drinks and happy friendly staff, They also have a great sized park with trampolines , slider bouncing castles and everything designed for children. This is no way linked to the dyer CARAVEL hotel.
