“Wonderful Budget Stay, Definitely Would Go Back!”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

I went on holiday to Zante with 2 other friends, girls, in June '11 and stayed in Laganas Hotel. We all found it especially good value for money, we opted for room only as we would never be up in time for breakfast, the rooms were basic but kept to a high standard of cleanliness and had everything you needed, you don't spend an awful lot of time in the room, we booked a room for 3 but only ended up using the two single beds pushed together, we're 3 girls and quite petite so that was more than enough room for us and used the other bed for clothes storage, the only fault with the room was the bathroom the shower was, incredibly, too powerful which meant it wouldn't stay on the wall and you had to hold it in your hand to shower which then resulted in a flooded bathroom floor. aside from that the room was perfect, in terms of amenities the hotel was again very good, the pool was clean and there were enough sun loungers for all the guests at the time we stayed there and with an on site bar and snack bar you had all you could need. in terms of location the hotel is situated quite a while away from the main strip, about 10 minutes walk, which we used to sober up every night on our way back and talk, also it means you're not kept wide awake by loud drunken bums when you want to get sleep and you're not hassled by any of those watch/dvd sellers during the day by the pool, which we were told is quite a regular thing for hotels on the strip, also our hotel was about a 10 minute drive from the airport, we had transfers included. Overall for those of you who are looking to save money on your room and spend it on booze this is the place for you, the hotel staff are very friendly and the rooms are what you'd expect for the price you pay. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

i work for first choice and when i saw reviews of this hotel being negative i got a bit worried.....all i can say is do not listen to them!!!
i stayed at the hotel for 11 nights end of july and loved it!!
its what you make of the holiday!
the hotel in itself is basic but clean..towels and linen are changed twice a week and rooms aren't cramped but showers are very small!!
the hotel is on the main road from the airport and its a 10 m in walk to the strip or 6euros in a cab. there are very nice bars and restuarants on the way down though.
the hotel staff are all friendly and the hotel manager will do anything for you!
its a twentys property so consists of young people and the atmosphere is happy and lively.
the pool is the best asset for the hotel...theres never a fight over the sunloungers and is very spacious!
the hotel is bed and breakfast...breakfast consists of ham, chees and hard bread...but noone gets up earlier than 11 anyway!!
the beach is a 5 min walk and is very busy! i like beaches but i dont rate this one.... i had 11 'lookie lookie men' trying to sell me things in the space of 20 mins!!!
there are pedlos on the beach but no watersports as the turtles have to be protected.
the strip itself isnt the best ive been to...lots of good deals around so make sure you explore!! cherrybay is open until 8am and is on the beachfront...would def reccommend going here!!
overal i had a wiked time staying at the hotel and the resort itself is average and would go back!!

The Laganas Hotel isn't the best hotel I've ever stayed in but its not the worst either so don't be put off by reviews.

I Paid £250 for a week in early May, which was only the 2nd week of the season so it was pretty empty.

The hotel is only a 15 min walk from the main strip which is good because its not as noisy and also you can sober up and get a gyros on the way!

Rooms are very basic but it is Greece and a Freestyle holiday so you have to expect that.
Our room was ground floor with a balcony facing the road outside, it was abolsutely freezing inside but I'd imagine in the height of summer that would be a good thing as there was no air con.

The shower is the smallest I've ever seen in my life but as long as you can squeeze in and hold the curtain it gets the job done!

Rooms were kept clean and its not far from the beach, what more can you ask for?

We were the last group of people on the bus when it stop out side laganas hotel and the 2 groups of 15 people got of the bus we were like omg what is this place going to be like as it is rather dirty and messy from the out side. When we got in side the main reciption it looks fine with a nice bar area and lovely pool area. The rooms were another thing they are really basic with just two/three beds a chair the smallest wardrobe you have seen in your life and a dressing table. I was luck and was only in a two room it dose get rather hot in the rooms but we went without air con cause when u come in drunk at night you just fall asleep and dont care. the bathroom is so small you can hardly move in it the shower water always ends up all over the bathroom floor. For 2days no 1 in the hotel had hot water untill the manager sorted it the totlets dont always fluch. When you walk up its ushally with the cleaner opening the door and standing over your bed wanting to clean the plase she was really nice and cleaned the room up for use.

The hotel is just round the corner from the beach but at the other end of the strip and up this other road at the top it is bout 15-20 min walk iwould say if you are not in a group get a taxi back at night its no more than 6euros as the road is not well light up.

We took the block pass for one of theweeks what was 170 euros i would say take it or just even by afew thing as we loved school disco and jailbreak is a must its such a good laugh and your free bar at the end is good.

Boozers and cherry bay have to be a must every 1 seems 2 head to cherry bay at bout 3.30/4oclock as that when it starts to pick up.

On your retune to the hotel after a night out u will be met by pedro and meto. Pedro is the sound bar man who will oke along with you. Meto on the other hand you will have to watch out for as he will say "Please go to your room" or "Please go to sleep" this is the only english he seems to now he will chase you around sometimes with his torch if hes not a happy man or walk you to your room he can be a bit sceary but its funni.

I would go back to zante but not this hotel.

Dont get me wrong we had a great time in Zante but the Hotel rooms are pathetic, there wasn't even a fridge, cup, glass etc and no air conditioning so we had too have a shower in the middle of the night.nice beach and resort.would go to zante again but not this hotel.Would recommend the Camio beech party, just 25 euros and free Pizza hut pizzas and group photo.

Me and my mate just got back today from a two week stay at Lagana Hotel. To be honest when we pulled up outside the 15 of us left on bus all past comment that our hotel was roughest looking out of them all, but the outside is deceiving. Costa is constantly working to update the property but with people like us running riot i know its hard. This hotel has everything you need, chill out area, games room, bar! lovely kept pool(by the extra canny maintenance man- miko) rooms are basic but clean, maids make your bed and empty your bin every day, sheets and towels are changed 2-3 times a week. Loads of choice for snacks. Anyone that intends to stay in this hotel should bere in mind no its not a four star hotel but it meets with most peoples requirements and its freestyle. Big hello to costa & pedros(the holiday wouldnt of been the same without you), & if anyone has a look behind the bar it was me who bought pedros the fluffy hand cuffs which i hope are still hanging there ...... dirty boy!! also costa girlfriend & ladies in the kicthen/bar are all good people.

Should you to go pubbing & clubbing into the main strip it takes approx 10 min to walk or 20 if you wana go right to the bottom or you can get a taxi for 6euro. We were unfortunate that we went to early in the season, pubs, shops clubs etc were just opening up on day we arrived 2nd may. The last part of the second week was alot busier. Out of 14 days it rained for 8 off & on, but you cant control the weather and we didnt see much daylight anyway.

I recommend Sabotage 35euro for a 3 hour free bar, with guys going round giving you free shots & cig's(if ya smoke). Was cracking night & theyve do wicked party games.

Bars we recommend are - pink panther, barcode, plus club, rescue, medusa, zero, & please go into la bamba at bottom of strip & say hello to jade and will (from kayleigh & Louise) - you you will meet a good group of people.

You have got to go to big mamas little takeaway just near plus bar, they do a mean kabab!

Did two night events organised by thomson reps, no offence to them but the popcorn party wasnt worth 35euro, the popcorn machine was broken, so instead of popcorn coming to our knees it didnt even cover the floor, but im sure that will be rectified as the party is a weekly thing. Bar crawl is a good laugh to.

Well to anyone reading this have a fab time @ lagana town & hotel. Were trying to get back in July xx

Laganas is a brilliant place to be... its hot, lively, and has got amazin nightlife... what more do you need?
I went here for my first holiday with the girls!
Laganas hotel is good! the rooms are a bit cramped, but they are just to sleep in! Its good round the pool in the day got a good atmosphere and the bar is 24 hours! Pedro... the bar man is ace! (hope hes still there) The hotel is quite far away from the strip, but you cant tell once ya get walkin, n if ya feelin lazy, the reception ring a taxi and they are there instantly!

I would deffo recommend this hotel and holiday if you are wanted a holiday away with a group as it is non stop fun! I didnt do any excursions with the reps ( my friends didnt want to) but I wish I had done because I heard they were fab!

I would come to this hotel again!
