We didn't really know what to expect when we arrived. It was our first time on a half board package holiday. Our plane was late so our check in was well after dinner. When we arrived the very first thing we were asked to do was leave our luggage with reception and go and have some dinner which had especially been saved for us. :-)
We found our room very clean and well presented with a balcony facing onto the garden. All rooms here are air conditioned, but we did have trouble cooling down the room enough in the evenings when it seemed to get quite humid. 2 very comfortable beds, huge wardrobe and a well appointed bathroom. Tiled floors everywhere though, so bring some flip-flops.
The food in the restaurant was good. OK so it is a buffet, but it was varied each day, well cooked and very tasty. There was plenty of choice regarding salad, fruits, a soup each day & plenty of bread. And Kitchen staff on hand to explain anything you were unsure of.
The bar was fully stocked with some great goodies. A comprehensive cocktail list is available, which makes for a nice change.
The upper and lower decks have plenty of sun loungers. There is a large pool with an appended kiddie pool. And a smaller infinity pool on the lower deck overlooking the sea.
There is a final deck at the shore for those of you who want to swim in the crystal clear warm waters.
There's some gym kit on the lower deck, and a fully functioning spa with treatments at an extra cost.
All in we spent a lot of time in the hotel rather than going out on the island. We found all of the staff incredibly accommodating, polite and very friendly.
If we were going back to Zakynthos again we would certainly think of this hotel as our first choice.
