me and 8 of my best friends came here for our first girls holiday June 12th until June 19th. The hotel was brilliant. Basic but clean and spacious. We had 3 rooms of 3 in each room and all of them were next to each other and overlooked the pool. The rooms get cleaned by a maid every day and the sheets were regularly changed. There is a small kitchenette with a kettle, hot plate, fridge and sink.
The staff were all very friendly and made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The location is perfect, right by the beach and less than a 5 minute walk from the middle of the strip. We did get told off for having our music too loud a few nights but they let you play it loud until midnight which is pretty reasonable. Kostas the security guard got annoyed a few times when we were too loud and came up to our room but I apologised and when he realised we were Scottish he loved us. Kostas is a lad.
The pool was amazing, there was always free sun beds so there was no need to get out there early to get a sunbed. The pool area is really good to socialise with other guests and meet new people. The have a snack bar which was handy. The hotel has a supermarket attached to it which was great for hangover food and snacks. The pool area has free wifi and they also play music all day by the pool (you might get a big of Leona Lewis Bleeding Love at 9am haha). The reps were friendly, although on the first day they did hassle us to take their 200 euro package but 4 of us just took the paint party and silent disco tickets and that was all (you'll get everything cheaper on the strip) After that night we didn't really see much of them but when we did they were nice.
As for Laganas as a place - WOW!! best week of my entire life. The strip is brilliant got everything you need and more. Pubs, bars, and clubs... oh and lots of places to eat! I recommend Cool Peppers for lunch or dinner, It's right on the beach! they serve great reasonably priced food. burgers, ribs, salads, pasta, fish - you name it, they've got it! For food when you're drunk i'd recommend a slice of pizza from BJ's on the way home bars. For bars I'd recommend Xcite, Juliano and the team are a great laugh, all the staff there have the banter! the bar at plus club, The three lions (I didn't go but a few of my friend did and liked it) and for when you're REALLY drunk the really cheap bar underneath Cocktails and dreams (miss you richard shmegal). For clubs i'd recommend cherry bay (this is a must to finish the night off, especially at the weekend). DJ smokey is a lad!! Any request, he play's it! Rescue is also awesome, it's the biggest club in Zante, hosts the UV paint party and you always have a good night. Plus Club is also great. I was only in their club for the silent disco but it was brilliant. Their front bar is amazing, all their staff have the banter and let you dance on the bar all night!
Overall the holiday was amazing and i'd go back to Dado's in a second. Obviously if you're going on a family holiday or looking for a quiet holiday then this hotel is definitely NOT for you during the summer!! Honestly don't listen to all the bad reviews! Friendly staff, clean rooms, brilliant pool and great atmosphere!! GO TO DADOS HOTEL YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!
