We stayed at the EVGENIA studios in laganas, Zante between 2nd and 9th May and had the best time ever. We booked through olympic holidays and found that they offered a great service to us.
When we first arrived at Evgenia studios at 7am in the morning we were slightly worried as the pool looked like a bomb site and was empty and dirty but after speaking to our very helpful Rep, Debra, she told us that the pool would be filled within a couple of days as it was only the first week of the season and hadn't been done yet...we were dissapointed however that Olympic hadnt informed us about there being no pool until the 4th may!
The location of the studios could not be better...we could see the beach from out studio on the 2nd floor and was literally 2 mins walk away. There was a supermarket attached to the studio bar area and an indian behind the studios that was very reasonable in price. The main lively strip of laganas (accessable via the beach) was about 5 mins away which was nice because you couldnt hear the noise from the studios but you could get to it easilly and with a nice view on the way.
The people at Evgenia couldnt have been nicer! They were so helpful and friendly and even the Greek bar assistants tried to have an english conversation with you! The shop owners were english which was really helpful! The rep was awesome and was always available at the times she stated for any queries and to book trips etc...
We did find Evgenia slighlty noisy during the night with people coming in at all hours from a night out but this was to be expected! We are glad we went before the season properly kicked in because after speaking to others that lived and worked there they said laganas is crazy over the main season months...IE:- really noisy and trouble starts in bars! We were there when people were just arriving and bars weren't too packed so we were really please we also got spaces on the beach that were quiet!
Don't stick to laganas if you go to Zakynthos - the island is so beautiful you just have to have a look around! We hired a quad bike to get around the island and saw over 5 beaches altogether the best beach being "ST Nicholas" which we visited 3 times in a week - its gorgeous and a muct see!!
Make sure that you book the trip to "smugglers cove" the scenery on the way is amazing and the sea when you get there will be the bbluest you have ever seen! Take your camera too!
Overall our holiday at Laganas in zante was fantastic and we loved every day and night at a reasonable cost!
We would not go during peak season but would definately go at the beginning of may again and maybe september as in these months it's still hot aswell...it reached 27 when we were there last week on 5th may!
:) thankyou for reading please feel free to ask me any questions and ill be happy to try and help!
