Overall it’s a nice place to stay, but other peoples reviews might be slightly exaggerated. It has 4.5/5, as do the top end resorts on the Maldives and they are worlds apart.

Relative to its price and flight time from the UK, its a good destination for a short break.

Food: There is lots of choice by definition, but realistically not everything is appealing. Some dishes are done very well, and others are average. It’s great to have the option of eating at the beach restaurant, as sometimes the food in the main restaurant won’t be what you want. You can pretty much eat throughout the day with various bar snacks being available. If you go on an excursion you can even book a packed lunch. Beware, ham counts as a vegetable in this restaurant if you are vegetarian.

Its great that you can get your own drinks from the main restaurant as you please as you are often. Dehydrated by lunch or dinner from the extreme heat.

Suggesting men need to wear trousers, as if scooping chips out of a metal tray is the height of sophistication is ludicrous. Better to enforce a no sportswear rule, or a smart dress code. i.e. jean shorts and chino shorts are acceptable.

Rooms: The rooms are well maintained by the cleaners but pretty basic. It’s great to have a balcony to sit out on an play cards or something similar when the sun gets too much for you by the pool. You get 2 English TV channels, BBC news and Sky news. Don’t forget the electricity isn’t on when you aren’t in the room if you are intending on charging up your phone.

Pool: Realistically the pool is not large enough for the hotel. Ideally there would be an adults only pool as there are a quite a few couples, a long side the regular pool. I would say there is space on the grounds for this. Each morning there is a stereotypical race to get the best sunbeds and leave your towels out which is extremely frustrating as you often return to see empty beds covered in towels until after lunch. It’s fantastic that the resort has a life guard, most don’t.

Beach: The strip of beach by the hotel is not owned by the hotel, as such you will have to pay for a beach sunbed.

Staff: The hotel have done a great job at hiring genuinely friendly staff, they are all extremely welcoming and helpful.

Checkouts: Watch out for your checkout times, some guests had to check out at 12 non on a Sunday for a 3am Monday morning flight.

Excursions: Despite what the pretty Thompson rep in reception tells you, it is not a short trip to smugglers cove. You will depart at 8am and only get there at 11:30 or so. It is a nice scenic day out. Smugglers cove itself is extremely busy and full of tourists, nothing at all like the postcards.

Sunset cruise, this is a great trip. Well worth doing, and taking swim wear with you for.

Turtle excursions, its worth doing 1 of the 2 hour excursions that guys on the beach sell. You will see turtles or get a full refund, do a lap of turtle island and you can even swim there.

Dear guest,

First and foremost, we thank you for holidaying at the Louis Zante Beach and for sharing your opinion online.

We are delighted to see that you deeply appreciated our wide range of drinks on offer as well as our continuous efforts to maintain an exemplary cleanliness. Furthermore, it is wonderful to know that our efficient staff did not fail to impress you with its attentive service.
However, we are surprised by your remark about the ham; if it was advertised as being vegetables, it was definitely a mistake and we will look deeper into the matter to see where along the communication line faulted. We thank you for your observation in regards to the dress code, and you can rest assured that we will consider your opinion for future improvements. As for the pool, we don't normally have similar complaints because the hotel is located on one of the best beaches in Zakynthos. Nonetheless, we take into account your valuable feedback.

We greatly hope to welcoming you back very soon at the Louis Zante Beach.

Warmest regards,

The Management.

Just returned from a 11 night stay, having been the year before. We were able to request the same room, 408 one of the superior family rooms near the beach (not a free upgrade) which was expertly cleaned daily by Violetta.

Similar to my review last year, great hotel supported by great staff. There was a wide, varied selection of food to suit all and the resort was well looked after. Air conditioning in the fitness room would help though!!

The animation team were friendly and the fact we saw many families who were at the hotel the year before really does credit to the hotel.

Thanks Louis Zante and will likely meet up again soon.

Room Tip: 408 one of the superior family rooms near the beach worth doing.

Just returned from a week holiday here.
Food: spot on & great choice every meal time.
Staff: very helpful & friendly, nothing too much trouble.
Pool: looking a bit shabby around it & small for the number of rooms. Hotel site is very large & another pool would make a big difference. Pool & pool bar staff again try very hard.
Beach: great beach & a great sea for kids as shallow for ages. Take out a pedalo & see a turtle = magical.
Room: tidy & well kept however very small. Bathroom so small struggle with 1 person in it & the bath is very narrow. Shower was poor & water temp up & down when using it. We paid for a sea view family room upgrade & it was a big let down, basically it's a standard room looking towards the coast & they stick a bunk bed in.
Entertainment: seen worse & seen better, the team give it their all though day & night & cannot be knocked for their effort.

Overall I would rate this hotel as a 3 star + due to the rooms & pool facilities, shame as the staff try very hard & the food was good.
Would I go again? No, would rather pay a little more per person & have a real 4 or 5 star hotel.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for holidaying at the Louis Zante Beach and for sharing your feedback online.

We are glad to know that you favored our tasty and varied cuisine as well as our great facilities. It is also a tremendous joy to see that you deeply enjoyed the friendliness of our dedicated service team. However, it saddens us to read that your room did not meet your expectations. We only wish you had informed us about it during your stay since we would have been delighted to provide you with another one. We do hope that you will give Louis Hotels another chance to provide you with the esteemed service we are known for. Perhaps the King Jason (Cyprus) or the Mykonos Theoxenia (Mykonos) would better meet your expectations.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in one of our Louis Hotels in the nearest future.

Yours truly,

The Management.

Just back from our 2nd visit to Louis Zante Beach. We requested and got the same room as our 1st trip (sea view overlooking the pool), for which thanks to the hotel. During the week we were sent a bottle of wine and fruit from the management as we were return guests - nice gesture. Nice to dine in the outdoor restaurant, and the Asian restaurant was excellent. All the staff were as friendly as ever. Nice walks along the beach in both directions. Turn right out of the hotel and walk around the bay to the end and go over the "rope bridge" to Cameo Island. Will definitely visit again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms facing South have the afternoon/evening sun.

We stayed her for 10 days at the end of June. Was very impressed with the views and gardens. Beach is lovely very sandy and shallow. Animation team are brilliant, Christina, Daniel and raul especially. Morning gym in the pool was very good and they are all very friendly. Michael Jackson evening show is good.
Food was good most nights, preferred breakfast and lunch though. Breakfast everything from cooked, toast, cereal, fruit, and beach bar for lunch with pizzas and milkshake lovely. Asian restaurant ok would prefer Italian. Evening meals not much for the English taste,
Pool a little small for the number of guests can get very crowded.
Soft drinks, beer and wine on tap is an excellent idea no waiting around to be served. Orange and apple juice in mornings was horrible had to have fizzy sprite or water.
Manager walking round all day checking everything nice to see! Does a good job.
Makis in the evening bar works very hard, really liked him.
Don't agree with paying 8 euro for sun loungers on beach :-(
Don't know why everyone moans about people not wearing long trousers in evening? Who the hell wants to wear long trousers in that heat? My boyfriend would not go somewhere that enforced that so good on you for not making men wear them.
Rooms are very basic, bathrooms could do with an overall as not much room to shower with it over the bath. Get rid of the baths and have some nice walk in showers.
Laganas centre only a 5 to 10 minute walk. Not much there other than bars and clubs, not much in the way of shopping. Got a couple of bags but only 1 decent bag shop no other designer stuff really.
Overall had a lovely holiday nice and relaxing, agree with the 4 star rating. With a bit of effort this could be 5 star if you did the following things:
Made another pool maybe adults only quiet pool
Free soft drinks and beer in the mini fridge in room
Refurb bathrooms
Don't charge for sun beds
Free wifi in room
Maybe a treatment room offering manicures, pedicures etc
I am sure we will be back.

Arrived 3 hours late but reception were very efficient and we were in our rooms in no time. There was a cold buffet and cold bottled water waiting for us in our room, which was much needed. Rooms have everything you need, very clean and water, tea, coffee etc topped up daily. The hotel is really clean and the staff friendly, especially Tina and Mikel on the main bar. Food was good, always something for everyone. Oriental Restaurant very good too. Entertainment was good, the team work really hard. We chose to go to the beach everyday which cost us 8 euros for 2 beds and one parasol, this was our choice but you could use beds around pool or in gardens or free. Sea was fabulous, really clear and shallow and just like getting into a warm bath. The trips we did with the reps were excellent. A must do for the the more adventurous is the" Adventure before dementia" - such a laugh (ask the rep about this one). Our only disappointment was that there is nowhere to walk on the evening unless you want to go into Laganas. Had and overnight delay coming home, due to technical problem with plane, but Thomson treated us really well, put us in lovely hotel in Argasi, had evening meal and breakfast in the morning. When we arrived back to the airport we were given rolls and cold drinks and on the plane we were given complimentary drink of our choice. Although inconvenient we'd rather fly on a safe airplane!!
