The hotel is low and dirty.It has 3 stars but in my opinion it should have 2.
A hotel where the towels are changed once in 2 days, the bed sheet twice a week where you don't have A/C (only if you pay), no hairdryer, no shampoo, no shower gel, no hot water in the evening it must be a 2 star hotel.
We've stayed there 11 nights and we regret every spent penny.
The hotel has 67 rooms and i guess all the rooms are same size(i've seen a triple room and the room is a double room where they put an extendable bed). We stayed in room number 114 which is located on the ground floor. If they give you some room on the second floor i would advice you to change it because is very hot up there(all people that got a room on the 2nd floor complained about this).
Some things about the room...
When we booked this hotel we look on the hotels pictures and rooms were looking very good there. If you go on the hotels webpage you'll see some nice pictures of a double bed room. Our room did look at all like in those pictures. When i've asked on the reception they said that they have only 3 rooms in the hotel like those in the pictures and those rooms are overbooked already. Our room was a room with 2 separate beds...which we didn't really appreciate...if you are a couple you'd understand what i mean. The bed mattress is so old that you feel the iron inside it..and they are very dirty.
The room was dirty since we arrived. The pictures speak by them selves .They are cleaning the rooms every day but they are not doing a very good job. We killed some ants and a spider since the day we arrived and we left them on the floor under a chair. After 11 days they were still there.
The room has an Air Conditioned machine but they will work only if you pay extra money(7 E/day).
The bathroom is also very dirty and old. You will be able to see rust and this black mold on the walls. If you want to take a shower in the evening, be prepared to take it with cold water. I guess they have a problem with the system that heats the water.
The breakfast is also very low. During our stay the breakfast was the same every day(boiled eggs, bread, tea/coffee, some gem/honey/butter, cheese and ham and some cornflakes ...this is all you will get).
The island is very nice and beautiful. The food around the hotel is delicious. I totally recommended Zakynthos but avoid this hotel by all means
