Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We recently returned from a week at the Louis Zante Beach Hotel. We travelled with out two young boys (aged one and three) and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. We stayed in room 136. It was adequate and clean, although it was not of the same size or condition as previous 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The balcony view was over the restaurant roof and only partially out to the gardens. As a result we did'nt use the balcony. The cot was very hard and the mattress was six wooden slats. Due to this we had to use additional blankets to make it comfortable. Aside from these minor issues and a surly, elderly gentleman on reception the rest of the hotel was virtually faultless. The cleaners were immaculate and left the rooms spotless everyday (along with the entire holtel). The main restaurant was beautifully styled, offering both indoor and outdoor eating. The food was quite simply the best we have ever had at a hotel. The selection of food was endless and they offered a seperate childrens buffet area specifically child size. The drinks selection was ample, offering lots of cocktails along with all the expected soft drinks, wines and beers. Make sure you try the milkshakes as are not advertised but were delicious! We mostly stayed around the childrens pool. it was small but ample for young children. The close proximity to the beach meant we could float between the sea and the pool throughout the day. The sea was beautiful, with warm, clear water and small fishes which our sons enjoyed trying to catch! The sunbeds on the beach were charged at 4 euros each. There was always plenty of sunbeds around the pools. Every day at 15:30 -16:30 the staff would cook pancakes, waffles or dough balls by the pool. There is a beach restaurant which was perfect for lunch times. Once agin there was a fantastic variety of food. Virtually every member of staff was extremely helpful and polite. The children loved the pirate ship and small playground. The children enjoyed the disco dancing in the evening but we often missed the shows.The gardens looked lovely and exceptionally well maintained. We managed to go and see the turtles and a day out to the water park. Boh were excellent. Overall a great place to go in an idealyic location. Would definately return.

We returned on Friday from a two week holiday at this hotel and felt that I needed to write a review.
This hotel will surpassed our expectations!!!
Our family - two adults and a 5 year old daughter have really enjoyed our time here and would recommend this holiday to anyone.
The food was plentiful, fresh and varied - our daughter especially liked the waffles/pancakes that were cooked for you in the morning and also at the pool bar in the afternoon. The themed nights gave us chance to try different food including a chef special dish every evening.
The staff were always helpful, polite and friendly - special mention here to the reception staff and housekeeping who helped us out when we had a couple of special requests. Also, Kamila in the restaurant was our favourite waitress and she went out of her way to make sure that we were looked after.

Next, the Animation Team ....... THANK YOU!!! Each and every member of the team worked hard to make sure that we were entertained from 10am until 11pm every day. My daughter enjoyed the dancing round the pool and the mini disco every evening and especially loved watching some of the cabaret shows that started at 9:30. My holiday was made more enjoyable by this team of hard working, friendly lovely people. The kids club was great and we used this acouple of times - Emily was made very welcome and really enjoyed her time there. She was in awe of the "super stars" - Yosef, Mila, Tammy and Beth, all of whom made a little girl feel very special.
If you want a great family holiday in a professionally run, friendly, great location hotel, look no further ............ we will be booking a return holiday
p.s. the mini club cd is being played in the car!!!

We have arrived back today from the most wonderful week at the Louis Zante Beach Hotel. It completely exceeded our expectations and although it is rated as a 4* we would rate it as a 5*. It is exceptionally clean and well tended, nothing is too much trouble for the staff. We went all inclusive and the food again was exceptional. The restaurant is lovely with such a huge variety of different food. It was fantastic to have the beach restaurant too so we didn't have to traipse sand upto the main restaurant. The maids came into the room every day and left it looking lovely.

We were in rooms 104 and 135, I have only two small complaints, the first being that in room 135 the bed was very hard which did give me a sore back but you could get that issue wherever you were to stay. I do have a memory foam mattress at home so I could be being picky re the hard bed and it would probably be fine for others.

The other complaint which was more irritating was how by the pool guests would go down and place their towels on the sunbeds with parasols (there were lots of parasols but not quite enough for all of the sunbeds) they would have a quick dip in the pool and would then disappear to the beach for a swim in the sea or walk off to the nearby shops safe in the knowledge that their sunbeds would still be there when they returned. We observed some guests were gone for a couple of hours or more which was very annoying as they had left their towels and lilos etc on "their" sunbeds!!

To be totally fair on the hotel, I don't blame them but I do blame the few selfish guests who do this. The hotel staff are so busy seeing that plenty of food, drink and entertainment are provided they could be forgiven for not being able to monitor who had "reserved" the sunbeds and consequently buggered off for sometimes the whole day.

I have recently read of a cruise operator putting a 40 minute limit on unused sunbeds. They take note of empty sunbeds with towels still on them, the put a sticker on the sunbed with a time noted and if after 40 mins it is still unoccupied they would remove the towels and other belongings and put them into a secure area to be reclaimed when the guests return. I'm not sure how easy it would be for the Louis Zante staff to implement but if they could then it would in my opinion make the hotel 100% perfect.

I recommend this hotel to anyone and in my opinion if you stay anywhere else in Zante quite frankly you are mad. You will not get better than the Louis Zante Beach Hotel. The gardens are beautiful and are watered everyday so are very lush looking and have such a wonderful outlook.

We travelled with Thompson who again I cannot fault, we went on their Turtle Island Cruise which is slightly more expensive than some you can book elsewhere but like everything in life you get what you pay for. It was simply wonderful and the Thompson rep who did the tour guide talk was captivating. The boat was a good size and not cramped, I normally get seasick but as it was a large boat, we weren't in the awful position we saw other travellers in on much smaller boats who were rocking all over the place (some who looked very seasick). Everyone on our boat loved it, we had 3 stops where people could get out and swim in the beautiful crystal blue sea. It was around 6.5 hours long so really good value for money.

Lastly I must add that we also had lunchboxes provided by Louis Zante to take on the trips which were lovely.

We never like to go back to the same place again as we like to see different places but one thing is for sure, when we book our next holiday it will be another in the Louis chain.

I guarantee if you go to this hotel you too will also be converted and will love the Louis hotels.

Enjoy your holiday xx

Had a brilliant time at Zante beach, stayed 31st July - 7 th August . Meet some fantastic people from England . The staff were brilliant, when we went to the restaurant within 30 seconds we were seated , there was six of us and it was no problem for staff. My youngest enjoyed the hoilday kids club. Staff at reception and the cleaner all very friendly, would definetly recommend the hotel. Please see the turtles and the walk to the main street was lovely . We rented the perdula for 10 euro and saw the turtle.. Please shop around as we brought kids things it was cheaper in some store in the main street . Kids loved every minute too

My husband and I, along with our 8 year old son, have recently returned from an amazing 11 night (all inclusive) stay at the Zante Beach Hotel.

Although only a 15 minute walk away from Laganas, the hotel is situated in a perfect location right on the edge of the resort; so you are well away from all the hustle and bustle of the nightlife. Our room was on the second floor of the main building with a sea view to die for!

We strolled along the beach to the main strip in Laganas on a couple of occasions, and although there are some nice little shops and supermarkets, it's very dirty there. We spent most of our holiday in and around the hotel where it was much cleaner and nicer. Also, the closer you get to Laganas, the more touts there are trying to drag you into the bars/tavernas or pestering you to hire sun beds.

We took a trip to Turtle Island which I would highly recommend - it cost 14 euros per adult and 8 euros per child - we booked this directly with a company based on the beach and had a lovely morning. We were taken on a glass bottom boat to see the turtles and were then taken over to spend some time on the beach at Turtle Island. We spoke to other guests who had been on the Thompson's trip (which was more expensive at 36 euros per adult) and although they spent more time on the boat, they only saw 1 turtle and commented that it wasn't worth the money they had paid.

I honestly cannot fault the service we received in any of the bars/restaurants or at the reception desk - the staff are so friendly and work really hard! The same can also be said for housekeeping - our hotel room was spotless (cleaned daily, fresh towels and bedsheets) as were all the communal areas.

This hotel is ideal for families and has loads of activities throughout the day and evening to keep everyone occupied including table tennis, darts, beach volleyball, water polo (for both kids and adults), mini disco and evening entertainment amongst other activities.

The animation team worked really hard and were especially good with getting the children involved - my son made loads of friends and commented that it was his favourite holiday ever! A big thank you to Yosif, Mila, Beth, Charlie and Tammy.

Sofia - as mentioned in many of the other reviews - was also amazing with the children, she's so conscientious and a real credit to the hotel. It was very reassuring to have her there. However, the same cannot be said about the replacement lifeguard that was on duty on Sofia's day off - she spent most of the day either chatting to a male staff member from the Dive Centre or on her mobile phone slumped in a chair in the shaded area; she wasn't even paying attention to what was going on in the pool!

The food was varied and good (fresh and hot) there was always something available for my husband and son who are both really fussy eaters. The head chef was constantly checking and monitoring everything. The quality of the food in the Asian restaurant was also good; my son was even able to take his food through from the main restaurant so that we could all eat together in the same sitting.

My only suggestion would be to perhaps have some evenings where there's alternative entertainment/live music at the main hotel bar, as well as the pool bar, so that there's a bit of variation.

Tip - make sure you buy your suntan lotion before you get there - I forgot to pack my son's and spent 18 euros buying the same lotion that I paid £7 for from Boots!

Although we prefer to try different places, we would definitely return to Zante Beach and now want to try other Louis hotels - thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Our fourth time at this hotel, excellent hotel with very friendly staff who were always available with help if required. I even witnessed the head chef going around the food with a young girl who had a nut allergy explaining what she could eat and what she couldn't.
The food was first class, a good varied choice, fresh, hot and plenty of it.
The hotel and grounds are kept immaculate - not easy when you are next to a sandy beach.
The location of the hotel is superb, near to the airport (but not too close), on the beach, near to Laganas for those who want the busy nightlife, but far enough away for it not to bother you.
This hotel is great for couples or families and attracts a good variety of nationalities.
The staff, from the Manager to the cleaners work hard to make sure the hotel maintains its high standards.
The pool, although not huge is adequate and patrolled by Sophie the lifeguard who did a superb job of looking after everyone.
In past visits the Animation Team have been very friendly and put on some great shows. They came around every day speaking to the guests and having fun with the kids. I found this time that they didn't make any effort to talk to anyone, and all their performances involved singing and dancing, which I found boring. On speaking to other families it was obvious they felt the same. The kids found it very boring.
Overall the holiday was excellent, and we will certainly return. Well done
