The hotel was OK. I stayed here for 7 nights from the 21st june - 28th June. Checking is at the pool bar and it was stressful as the the person on the bar did NOT speak English very well. I paid a deposit of €20 for a safe in my room, but didn't get the money back at the end of the stay. The rooms are basic, but very spacious. The bathroom is also basic and flooded every time you took a shower because there was no shower curtain or hook to hang the shower head on (it's very difficult to try and shampoo your hair with one hand and hold the shower head with the other).
The pool was nice, and the bar was cheap, but you always feel on edge as the family who own the hotel are ALWAYS watching you from the table under the bar.
The hotel doesn't allow any drink to be consumed in your rooms, but it's pretty easy to sneak it in, just remember to buy plastic cups at the supermarket down the road as they dont provide glasses for this reason!!! They didn't seem to be too strict on playing music though.
Don't try and sneak a friend into the hotel like I did, we only managed to be unnoticed for 3 days haha! They just burst into the room without knocking, so make sure you keep your door locked from the inside and leave the key in the lock! If they catch you sneaking someone in they try and charge you €20 a night!
Be prepared for a shock in the nights as on my first night I was casually walking back into my hotel and a Hagrid looking night guard popped out of nowhere and asked to see my room key!! So no one night stands in this hotel! YAWN!
At the end of the day, the hotel may not be very nice and very overpriced, but you're going to be in ZANTE! You shouldn't be in your hotel room at all!
