We have just returned after a fantastic week at this hotel. We have had a lovely relaxing time. The welcome we received upon arrival with dinner ready for us and bags taken to the room. Rooms were lovely modern and clean my only issue would be more hanging/drawer space and a mirror in the bedroom. Poolside was lovely but cold as expected at this time of year Dimitra was lovely and so helpful at the poolside bar. Food well I was apprehensive regarding previous reviews but there was plenty of salad warm meats local recipes and plenty of choice we ate well staff in the restaurant were polite and attentive and covid safe gloves and mask. John at the bar was lovely and very friendly all on all I highly recommend this hotel and will return soon.

Just returned from a week here mid October, stunning hotel, such friendly staff who are always willing to help. We stayed all inclusive for the first time ever and the food was incredible,a vast selection to choose from and every bit of it beautiful 10/10. Rooms were lovely, we had a pool view (stunning views) Rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard, fresh beds and towels. Hairdryer and a kettle in rooms always a bonus as is the free safe and air con. The snack bar was great with plenty of choices and a very hard working young lady. John behind the bar was a pleasure to meet, so funny and chatty, what a lovely guy. Literally about 3 minutes to the beach and around 6/7 minutes to the main strip, would definitely return here even if it was to have greek lessons from John haha. Superb hotel, superb spot, everything about this place is wonderful.

Staying at this hotel has been the best experience although turning quiet due to end of season the hotel has still offered us the best service. The rooms look to have been recently refurbished and offer everything you need, beds are so comfy, rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels and even a special touch with robes/slippers on arrival, there is complimentary shower gel/shampoo/soap/ hairdryer and they offer free air conditioning and a safe. Only thing missing is long mirror that maybe could be put in the bedroom as only one in bathroom. We are staying all-inclusive and the food is different everyday with with variety of dishes to choose from everything is fresh and tasty, the desserts are incerible. Staff are friendly and work really hard, from the porter who helped with cases to room, helping with wheelchair as partner has disability to the restaurant staff who attend to every need (currently have to wear gloves/mask due to covid but only.in restaurant) John the barman on an evening is a pleasure to talk to and he has made our stay special do big thanks to him, the lady who works the pool bar needs a medal 🏅 having to share her day with the flys/wasps loving the sugar from the drinks lol. We we're moved to this hotel a week prior to arriving and I have to say thanks because it was definitely the right choice and we will be returning

A very short transfer from the airport, we arrived to check in and requested a low level room as both me the missus have minor walking difficulties. Our original room was a garden view & the new one was with a pool view. Great start. The room had a large double bed, ample storage, tv, aircon, fridge, fridge, kettle, hairdryer & iron. Bathroom with toilet, wash basin & wet room shower. Toiletries, bathrobe, towels & slippers provided. Restaurant had a good selection on offer & always piping hot. Pool & main bar were very good with Dimitra At the pool bar & John(weatherman lol) at the other. Snacks served at the pool if you missed breakfast or wanted a light lunch . The pool was absolutely freezing, but refreshing. All staff were amazing. This is a fairly small hotel which means holiday makers tend to mix better & also because it was end of season & Covid everyone seem to mix quite well. We made lots of lovely people & made some great friends. The hotel location is almost ideal, watching the planes land & sometimes take off was incredible. Go left out the hotel with a 10 to 15min walk to Kalamaki strip with loads of bars & eateries. Go right with a short stroll to the lovely beach & 20min walk to Laganas or 35min to Agios Sostis marina along the sea shell covered Turtle beach. Would recommend Kalamaki & The Golden Sun to anyone thinking of coming to Zante Thanks to all Davy & Alison x

Hotel rooms clean and adequate, 2 mins walk to the beach, hotel pool lovely but pool freezing cold, dimitra on the snack/pool bar little jem work her back side off, hotel food not so great, we ate out every evening for a good decent meal, not the best routine in the canteen area as on a few occasions we were sat down almost 10 minutes waiting for cutlery then your meal is almost cold, next year will try self catering or B&B as I think all inclusive doesn't justify the price, as for returning here, no thank you.
