“Never go back to laganas again”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

Dont go here if you are an Irish couple, try a different part of the island..
Pool is digusting, no sunbeds, and food and cigarettes everywhere during the day and service very slow.. The resort has no decent pubs, its all clubs.. if you are english and young this would be a great spot.. No nice restuarants... We found lovely pool bar that we went to every day, its off the strip a bit, if you walk to end of the beach its nicer down there too.. Made the best of the holiday but would never go back there again.. ive been to many resorts and this was the least enjoyable holiday I had...I found the strip dangerous around 5 am, Romians attacking you, it was awful.. In most other places playa del lingus, Horsonnis, corfu, lanzortote I always felt safe staying out late...

Room Tip: You have to pay 35 euro for air conditioning,, room ok..

This is a great hotel if you want to be right near whats going on in zakynthos, we didnt have to walk much at all! The bar staff in the hotel were friendly, but apart from that everything seemed to be quite old and worn. Fittings in the room were broken or just plain simple. Pool tiles were coming away from the smaller pool. This is a great place if you were like us, just wanting something just to lay your head done and get abit drunk, but its a no go for couples etc.

only paid £289 for the place and would say its worth about £5 for the weeks stay!
we found used condoms under the bed within half a day of been there? do the rooms not get cleaned before new people come in? curtains hanging off the rail, thick black mould in the shower.
we found this out during our stay as we begged for new towels and bedding as they hadnt been changed till a day before leaving! 6 days with dirty towels!
floor didnt get swept once, left with out toliet roll, only thing that got done every two days was the bins emptyed! i saw the stairs outside our apartment get cleaned more then our room
the whole room smelt dirty and dusty
wires hanging out our shower, we had no hot water for four nights, the person running the hotel told us it was not there problem? and by our last night it still hadnt been fixed
the place is a joke only nice thing about the whole room is getting out the door and not going back!
even tho we got kicked out at 12pm on the 21st june and dint fly till 7am on the 22nd june!!!!
