We were the only family (39, 35, 17, 13, 12) that stayed in a first floor 2 bedroom apartment at the Borsalino Apartments & we booked it on a late deal 5 days before departure. I would say that that the area around the swimming pool was nice but the room was quite dated & had to do a bit of DIY when the bed collapsed when it was moved & the knobs on the wardrobe doors were broken. Behind & under the bed there were dried noodles & all the drawers were dirty & we had the layer them with carrier bags to put anything in them. The cutlery was dirty & the bowls didnt actually looked like they were actually for dogs!
Eleanor seemed ok & friendly but Yiannis was rude, arrogant & seemed to always be on some kind of power trip. Constantly moaning and shouting at people for not showering properly, Yiannis was always looking for any opportunity to have a go at someone, unless you were in a group that spent a lot of money at his bar, as he certainly had his favourites. On the last day of our holiday, we had to be out of the appartment at 10am even though we only actually had spent 6 night in the room & weren't being picked up until 02:00 the following morning. We certainly weren't going to give him an extra 40 euros for staying in the room that we had thought we had already paid for.
Yiannis attitude is laughable as we were sitting in the bar area & he turned the lights out on the area that we were in and kept the lights on for another couple of lads at the other end of the bar.& told us that he was shutting at 9.30pm. I know it is only a small matter but we took 3 sets of darts to play on his dartboard, but he had removed it saying that it was no good & he couldn't replace it because you can't get them in Zante. Low & behold I found 2 being sold for 19 Euros in shops down the Laganas strip. If I'd have told him about them he would probably chased me around his precious pool, like the mankini man!
On the whole we enjoyed our time at the Borsalino apartments as we went out on trips to St Nicholas Beach, the water Park & got the bus to Zante town. We found lots of nice Tavernas & had some very tasty food.
Laganas in July / August really isn't family friendly but catered for young groups of lads / lasses, so I can't say that we will be rushing to go back any time soon!
