“For the price and location you couldn't want more!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely lovely hotel, recently rennovated to a nice modern standard. Reception staff friendly despite some of our group being loud late at night on some occasions. Be warned that a fridge, air con and a safe cost extra on top of the room rate. Rooms are cleaned daily and fresh sheets and towels are provided. We chose the half board option and whilst breakfast was a little to be desired dinner is served next door at Mr Dallas and is quite tasty and reasonably priced with a variety of dishes on the half board menu. The bar lady Christina is the loveliest person we've met locally on this holiday and whilst it may take a little while for bar snacks (she is by herself!) they are tasty and reasonably well priced along with the cocktails etc. Sun beds are free and the pool nice and clean. The general size of rooms is good but one word of note some rooms are a bit chop and change with regard to whether they have TV's in etc. And their standard of decor but all are modern and acceptable. Don't be surprised if the shower leaks on the floor though, this happened in all of the rooms we occupied... With regard to location you couldn't ask for better as it's right on the strip. Overall, a fab stay and we'll definetely be returning should we come back to Zante!

I stay at this hotel from the 17/06/2014-01/07/2014 the cleaness of this hotel is fantastic the staff in the reception is very friendly and helpful. christina who run the breakfast and poolside bar is brilliant. the breakfast is contenatial. the only thing i didnt like was if you go half board you have to go to the restaurant next door for your evening meal. The menu need to be change because it the same menu never changes.

Room Tip: If you want a bit of quiet in the night ask for a room over looking the pool.

Got home on 10th June and have to say we had a wonderful holiday, came home relaxed and tanned.
Rooms are clean, staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Although right on the strip we couldn't hear any noise and we were usually tucked up in bed by midnight! Only noise was from a group of lads (not English) banging around when they came in drunk, but certainly bearable and to be expected really. A must is the Turtle boat trip, beautiful creatures and amazing to see in their natural habitat.
We went half board, evening meal is in Mr Dallas restaurant next door and they were lovely, we had lunch there and the odd full English!
Would like to thank staff from both places for making our stay so enjoyable.

The hotel is a steady hotel, it's clean and very bright, the breakfast was your standard continental breakfast, the pool isn't heated but does warm up at the end of the day, the "gym" is minimal, free wifi in reception and at the pool very speedy but there was minimal guests at the time.

The Special Omelette comes highly recommended.

The room had a TV but with about 10 all Greek channels however you get English spoken shows with Greek Subtitles (we watched hangover 2 one night) if you want to relax don't get a strip side room, the windows block very little noise, excellent location if on a 18-30 holiday, close to the beach and all major pubs and clubs. Staff are friendly and have a laugh.

NB towels are too small for beach/pool use and don't get changed everyday, we bought beach ones for €5 a pop from the many shops nearby

I visited Zante this summer with a group of girls who wanted a basic hotel to crash in after our late nights out, a nice pool was also important!! When we arrived at the hotel we were advised no alcohol in rooms (which is fair enough) and the keys had to be given to the receptionists each time we left the hotel premises (not including the pool). This seemed a bit of a nuisance at first, but soon came to realise it was better to not be responsible for our keys on a night out, and that we would always have our key at the end of the night with no disasters!! I guess this is also for the hotel staff to ensure no one would sneak up to the rooms without them noticing (as some people like to do in Zante!) Overall the hotel was very modern and the air con worked quite well, but only worked when the door key fob was in the holder next to the door and if the balcony shutters were closed. Free Wifi was handy in the reception and pool area. The pool played music all day which was good as it got you in the mood to go straight out again! Food was nice and very English (including; Pizzas, Burgers, Omelettes etc) which was a perfect hangover cure. All was well until one night when some of us girls decided to come back, we walked in and were waiting for a receptionist to give us our key to our room, we had noticed they were standing on the stairs and shouting at two English party goers (who had obviously tried to sneak into a boys room) the receptionist was taking photos of her face and was holding her back by her hair. After some 5 minutes the receptionist (dragon lady) let go of her hair and the two girls ran off quite quickly! apart from that fright, we had a lovely stay and as the hotel is on the strip you can see as your getting ready what people are wearing etc and just people watch whilst pre drinking. PS. we snuck alcohol up into the room by taking beach bags out with us and wrapping it up in towels..the cleaners don't care they just throw the empty bottles away after.

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room facing the strip as its great to people watch, but can be a little noisey at...

basic background of me - i used to work in zante and also have been many times to visit for a holiday. from this my experiance of accomidation in zante are quite experianced.

Esperia is personally one of the better hotels/accomodation that we have stayed in.

The rooms are pretty standard (like all hotels/rooms here) but it does the job!!! if you are going for a wild week please do not expect luxury you will hardly get this in anywhere that you book.

rooms are clean and pool is nice. and you are 2 seconds away from the beach and right on the main strip so perfect for people wanting everything right on your door step.

To be honest we never made breakfast so i cannot comment on that.. but if u do see the side of 9 am that doesnt include you still being half cut then shame on you!

i would not advise any hotel on the main strip if you are looking for luxuary/comfort/piece and quiet. i would advise staying off the strip and away from the clubs as you will not get this here.

The staff in the hotel are always around to help and reception is 24/7.

If i ever return to zante i would go back to esperia
