“DISGUSTING.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Many people on here will tell you not to listen to the bad reviews of savvas but honestly u should listen and choose to stay elsewhere! Yes its an 18-30 hotel but that doesnt mean it should have little cleanliness and rude staff. From the minute we arrived at this hotel we wer greeted with dirt and filth. Just walking to our room we came accross split drinks everywhere which we were expected to pick up our suitcase and carry them over to avoide getting them wet. The blankets were disgusting with hair all over them! Forcing us to sleep in large towels as we arrived early morning and were ao tired. The bathroom toilet had not been flushed and the sink was absolutely vile with god knows what in there. Self catering? There is absolutely nothing in this room which could have helped us prepare any food. There was about 1 plate and no mugs or anything...ridiculous! Due to this very bad self catering, we were forced to eat out 3 times a day something which we did not want! The reception to the hotel is actually the bar! How stupid, if u have any issues u have to go into the bar and if the bar is closed well there is no reception! So when we had a power cut in the middle of the night we were told that ' the bar is now closed no one can sort it' erm excuse me... I paid to stay here and your telling me the reception is 'closed'. My request to have my electricity looked at was met by rude staff who seemed to not care at all and one of them actually huffing and puffing. What else can i say... The cleaners cannot speak english which is fine until they take things which belong to u and u try to tell them.. Bt they cant understand u! They took one of our towels because they were white. Finally the last day.. We had to check out at 10am but out transfer was not till 3am next morning. So we asked the hotel to keep our stuff in their stockroom to which they didnt mind. But we were told that the pool closes at 1am so we have to take our cases out by then. This was fine but once we collected our cases at 1am we sat in the hotel bar which on the opening times is open until 3am. However all the staff seemed to be cleaning up. At 2.30am we were all kicked out as apparantly the bar was now closed although the opening times said 3am and outside was freezing. This topped everything else, we all were forced to wait for our transfer outside in the freezing cold for 45minutes only so the workers could go on their night out!! ANYONE READING THIS, JUST DONT STAY THERE! I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS, BUT THE STATE OF THIS HOTEL FORCED ME TO WRITE ONE! It really is that bad. Oh and no hot water for the whole week there and the hotel tried to fine us €45 for apparantly damaging 3 towels with paint (€15 per towel) even though we hadnt even been to the paint party!

Stayed at savvas hotel 29th may 2014. Lasted one night there as it was horrible. Walked in at half 7 in the morning. We had no toilet roll. No cups so we could make a drink. As we was self catering we had nothing to cook on.
Went on to the balcony on the bottom floor, looking at balcony on the opposite side and you could see what looked like to be blood all don't the front. Wanted a shower and there was no hot water at all. There was a dirty sock hung up high on the wall. Bathroom was dirty. The hole place was disgusting. I really don't know how they can let people stay there. I would never go back

Never ever have I stayed in such an awful place and the room I booked which I paid extra for I didn't get and the state of what the did give me was totally out if order
Took us 20 mins to get in room we were put with staff accommodation the room was dirty fag burns in sheets and they really don't care
Attitude of the staff appalling the pool bar is reception and the toilets need condemning
Health and safety well there is NONE!!!! Hotel needs shutting down

This hotel is great for getting you in the mood for going out at night , music starts at the pool at 10:00am and is always busy they have cheap drinks on offer all the time the reps are great and look after your needs ,me and my friend were on a stag party of 9 but were staying in a diff hotel spoke to the rep when I got off the plane and he got me moved straight away didn't even need to go to the other hotel. There was some fines getting handed out for towels and bedding but this is only for the likes of make up ,fake tan and paint from the paint party but you will find this at any hotel. Also we never had clean towels or bedding for the week we were there if you take your own towels make sure there not white cause the cleaners will lift them.

Only had the luxury of warm water once , food is good from the bar a lot of ppl were eating there during the day and if your 18-30 your not intitled to the free drink wrist band from 7-11 because it clashes with most of there nights out. With the events they have I would defo go to the pool party and the full moon party which is eventually held on the beach after a pub crawl I think most of the island went to that was a great night .

Look out for the rep Nicola she is hot as **** also Kevin is sound.

Overall this is great for party but not so for comfort but you should only ever be in your room for sleeping.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are a must here

The savage savvas was quality! Cleaner was called mother by the end of the holiday! Pool had a PARDDYY atmosphere, lots of fun! No sex charge! Reps are the best especially big Kev and Nicola! Got fined for being sick on 3 sheets but you would anywhere and very quick at fixing any problems! Cold water but run on solar panels so expected this time of year, if that's an issue take some man up pills! Loved zante and missing it already!

Stayed here for 3 weeks from the end of April as coming out as a first time worker in Zante the hotel was recommended by workers that had previously stayed there. It's really not as good / funny as it is made out to be. It seriously couldn't have got any worse than it was.

Knowing they had over 40 guests arriving on a flight at 11am when we all arrived the rooms were only just starting to be cleaned. We had to sit outside our room for 4 hours watching our cases as the maid hasn't even got to our block yet. We poped our heads in and the room looked like something from a life of grim. Completely full of flys, mould, dirt and rusty furniture.
When the room was finally cleaned it looked 100x better yet as they used a hose to clean the floor we were living in puddles for 2 days. The room still could of been so much cleaner.

The pool area is ok, the pool seems clean however heard it gets really dirty in the summer and is just left that way. Pool bar is spacious however drinks are over priced for cups full of ice. Every night they put a leaflet through the door to tell you it's 1 euro drinks. That's for a tiny plastic cup full of ice with poor alcohol. The wifi goes off all the time, the connection is terrible. The computer behind the bar always cuts out too so the music cuts out constantly.

Dena the hotel manager tries to fine you for things she has no evidence of what so ever. This happened to so many people during our stay there. She also turned the wifi off one night after she had an argument with someone staying at the hotel as a punishment - very professional.

For the first 2 weeks of our stay the electric went off at least 3 times a day. Sometimes for up to 12 hours and the hotel claim that they couldn't help us. One of the nights it went off at 8pm and stayed off until 2pm the next day - ridiculously poor!
The water is always freezing cold!! You would think they would at least pay for their guests to be able to have a warm shower instead of relying on the sun to warm it up.

The rooms are full of ants, flys, slugs - yes really.. Beetles and woodlice all the time and the hotel won't do anything to help.
The maids are useless - see attached pictures. Every bit of damp turns into mould which they don't even clean.

There is no good points to this hotel, cannot stress enough how much of a dive it is. No human should have to put up with conditions we lived in. Absolutely disgusting hotel!!!!!!

I don't know how this place calls itself a hotel. It is more of a youth hostel. You are pressured on arrival to pay €100 euros for a drinks deal and this would force you to drink in the pool bar every single night. The bed sheets were stained and the room is so basic it's like staying in a shed. The plug sockets are all in difficult places. The toilet seat was broken. The shower is cold most of the day as it is heated by solar so this restricts you to what time you need to return to this awful hotel in the evening each day. Not a place fore families or couples at all.. unless you want to see youngsters having casual sex everywhere or banging on your door all hours of the night. The hotel is right on top of a petrol station so we were worried as drunken smokers staggered past each night. Our room was cleaned once during the week we were there and we heard that the food was awful but didn't try that. To be honest we tried to be in the hotel as least as possible. When we complained about our room not being cleaned (twice) it wasn't cleaned for 2 days following. DON'T STAY HERE. It is vile. We were freezing every night and even though we had blankets in the wardrobe, again, they smelt horrible and were stained. Even clothes unworn have come home smelly. Nothing about this hotel was good. Whenever anyone asks you where you're staying. When you say savvas they pull a sort of sympathetic horrified face. It really is a ****hole.
