Where do I start !! Walked in to check in ,the woman at the front desk looked suicidal, not what you want to b seeing starting your holiday,so much attitude on her ,we went down for the all inclusive lunch, absolutely shocking never seen an all inclusive food selection so bad , all food was bland , and prob about 5 different things to choose from , we thought it’s lunch so tea must b better , went to tea im sure it was the same food , the food was shocking , hands down worst I’ve ever been to !!!! No fruit prob one tray of dessert all the same , after that first day we never had any more of the food we eaten out every day , the guy in the mini supermarket,if you can call it that cus it was empty !!! His attitude was the worst in the whole place , no personality at all , a vile human being, the bar staff were nice tho , and the guys at the front entrance we liked !!! No entertainment at all !! Luckily we booked a quad bike so we never stayed there , only went back to sleep there ,we went down into the town it’s another world , loads of food friendly people nothing like the creatures at this crap , go to zante cus it’s an amazing place , but do not go to this Hotel it is shocking, hands down the worst I’ve ever stayed in , place should b shut down !!!!!!

Half the place is closed … bathroom filthy, ants in room all the time , attacked by wasps all the time, food - disgusting! No variety ,bland- poor for children ! Staff mainly ok but a number blatantly rude … the bloke in the mini market needs to attend a customer services course ASAP! View from room is overgrown land and hedges …. Slides only open a few hours a day and one bar open at night with one staff member!!!! meaning queuing for 30 mins to get a drink !!! No entertainment…. The gym 🙈🙈🙈 this is not four star - 2 at best

I was there for the 3rd time (yes!), just because of the marvelous location of the hotel, on the hill, in the village, far away from any city entertainment which I don’t need and I don’t like. Just cicadas all the time.  So I find this place as a perfect one for my mind reset and mental health treatment being by myself only. And the BEACH… the beach is absolutely beautiful! Sandy, no stones, smooth beginning of the warm and crystal clear Ionian Sea, fantastic! It doesn’t matter that you need to go down by stairs like from 10th floor, it’s just the beauty of the hotel being on the hill. You should not complain the location but rather take an advantage of moving and walking instead of sitting with a drink by the pool. So the LOCATION and THE BEACH are MAIN ADVANTAGES of the hotel. And the sunbeds – free for hotel quests, that was nice. The territory of the hotel is huge, but most of it is not used and closed this year, unfortunately the most beautiful part of Zante Royal Hotel full of plants, pine trees, flowers, cats and chickens, in which I stayed twice and loved this place. Nobody knows why? Maybe this is after-covid cost cutting reason or renovation plan behind… Now the Palazzo Di Zante Hotel part with the waterfall and the pools below balconies was open. It’s a pity however there are only several rooms with pools under balcony are filled up with water, the other pools are empty… Anyway the rooms here are renovated, quite nice and clean, comfortable enough with air-condition working well. Rooms cleaned and towels changed every day, no complaints. Restaurant: comparing to the 2020/2021 it was now a bit disappointing. No air-condition inside, some tables available outside, the cleanliness – change to worse. I needed to clean the table myself to be able to eat as the staff was not sufficient and was not able to cope with cleaning the tables. From my perspective they were not motivated to work professionally, just standing in the corner and looking with irony (yes…) for the people cleaning the tables themselves. The sad restaurant staff with no smile, no help, no reaction towards quests. The food was worse than in previous years, very cheap, poor variety, every day the same, but anyway still fresh and tasty, enough for me as I don’t care about food. Modest breakfast, but for lunch and dinner much more possibility of choice. All in all: quite tasty food, especially fresh vegetables, olives, feta, melons and watermelons. The pools: 2 quite nice and clean pools with pool bars available, one with slide open 12-14 and 16-18 plus the 3rd one in the closed part of the territory without the pool bar, but I was not interested in having such beautiful sea just down the hill… The pool bars: again not enough staff to serve such a lot of people what resulted in 20-minutes queues waiting in the evening to get the wine or drink. But the BARS STAFF was really fantastic! Always smiling, fast, professional, helpful and willing speaking with guests – ANCA (my favourite bar/cat woman ), Aristotelis and Filipos – 3 really fantastic guys I liked talking to and who are doing really good job there! My warm regards if you read this, guys! :) Entertainment: there were two nice music nights: Greek Night (Greek music and dance) on Sunday and live music singer lady on Thursday (world standards/hits in English). Those 2 events were amazing, nothing more is needed, so I hope they will keep on serving such beautiful entertainment. Summing up: I would recommend this hotel for kind and romantic people and not for demanding ones  - maybe after some more renovation and modernization, some infrastructure investment as now it is maybe 3*** hotel, but located in beautiful place with marvelous beach and nice & friendly Staff. Appreciate it – we all are after covid nightmare, hotel business suffered much. And definitely the Management of the Hotel should hire much more staff and motivate them as the major disadvantage of this hotel is lack of people serving the quests… But if you want to reset your mind on the beach or travel all over the island take this hotel, go for it! It is fantastic and romantic location! And comfortable enough to stay and relax. That’s the real Greece! 

Hotel is deprived, needs reparations. Services currently it aren't 4 * category but 2-3* in fact. Beach is nice, clean located down from hotel but lift and funicular are out of order, but it isn't a big problem. Food: poor quality, often made from industry prepared materials, breakfast mixed eggd weren't eateble, low variaty of vegetables, no fruit except water melone, grapefruit and orange. The staff doesn't never suplied food in time, moving very slowly, nevere smile, every time is lack of something. Selfserviced soft drink bar at hotel restaurant: you get water instead of juice often. When you looking for a table, you have to clean the table yourselve. Evening bar: 16-20 people is waiting for drinks in a queue mostly . Hotel alcohol drinks have quality similar to Egyptian drinks. Great thanks to Mr.Philippos at pool bar - the only person at hotel who he has been working properly, fast and friendly.

We visited Zante Royal resort in the end of June. Weather was perfect and sea was magicly clean. Vasilikos and Zakynhtos by itself was realy beautiful. BUT.. this hotel it´s not magical at all. I belive that it was.. but know it´s just a classic hotel with so many mistakes. We were lucky and get the “renovated” room with the pool under our balcony. Sounds nice, right? But unfortunately our “pool” was never filled up with the water. Room was clean and ok. But only for the first days. But as time went on they didnt even make our beds or clean the bathroom. And the worst part was that they even did NOT gave a toilet paper in our room. Food.. nothing special. All the same all the time. Deserts actualy didnt even exist. Because it was just cookies with the puding. Just changing color of the puding. Staff in the restaurant was very sloow and very “unfriendly”. We had all inclusive and even thow they yell at you when you fill bottle with the water. Yes you do not need the bottle if you have all inclusive close to the beach. But beach was around 119 stairs away from you. You need water in 35 celsius to make it up and down and stay alive. No wifi in the room, no fun.. only one Greek evening.. that was perfect. One and only good part of this hotel was people in the pool bar. Very friendly and very nice always with the smile on the face. All hotel parts needs lot of repairs.. not only the building.

We visited Zante in the end of June. The weather was perfect, around 35°. Acommodation was ok, also room. But the hotel service was disaster. All staff in the dinning room was unfriendly and rude to guests.Apart from guys and one lady in the pool bar, they were friendly. The same food every day, but ok we could choose. You can take lunch package if you want to go to trip, but again disaster, just one banana and sendwich(ham and cheese.. nth else.. could be some spread or butter and vegetable..) Cleaning ladies -again disaster. Every day new towels, but without cleaning. They never tidy up the room. Poor wifi. Lift for the beach was not working. Option to take the hotel car. No program for children, no animators. No evening entertainment, apart one night- greek dance night, it was wonderdul. The beach and sea were beautiful, clean and really warm. Sunbeds for free. In conclusion quite place for having relax time, nice sea and beach but the hotel never more.
