Me and my friend just got back and loved Zante! It was extremely quiet and most bars and clubs were shut for end of season but we didn't mind. Also we basically had the pool to ourselves because it was so quiet because of the time of year we went.
Do not go here at the end of September if you want a party holiday, you need to come in July or August. The reps do not care about you at this time of year and do NOT book their excursions. Our rep said if we wanted to do anything, we would have to go to a different hotel to book them.
Must say Amy was so lovely even though it was her last few days working at Dados for the season. She was very friendly and helpful. We got shouted at by Jimmy for playing our ipods and was told NO music whatsoever even though the hotel was a twentys hotel and it was dead and our music was only on quiet anyway. We also got shouted at for having boys in our room until 6am when we didn't have anybody in our room and I was actually in bed by 11pm the night before because I was ill. We tried to explain and he would not listen and kept tutting at us when we tried to talk and stopped us from speaking. Extremely rude. We got blamed for a lot of things and we was not happy about this as we are in our late twentys and went for a quiet chilled holiday.
Other than this, we would stay at the Dados again but because of all the moaning and blaming, we will go to a different hotel next year. Security man was also nice and helpful.
Good points- quick transfer time from the airport, spacious but basic rooms, great location, good value for money, didn't have to pay a deposit, mainly friendly staff, good size pool
Bad points- overpriced pool bar,(supermarket next door is much cheaper) one moany, unfair member of staff, No music to be played whatsoever (maybe July and August is ok) bad rep (end of season or not) pool was NOT cleaned once
Overall if you want a cheap holiday with basic rooms then i would recommend dados. But if you want a party holiday do NOT come at the end of September.
