“Home from home - you will be so welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

I cannot say enough good about this place. We stayed there in June for a week and loved it. Arri is the owners "Mr Dennis's" Dog. He is a bicheon frise and a total pet and sleeps in his bed around the pool following dennis everywhere. Lovely and homely for pet owners and this doesn't in any way comprimise on hygiene.
The Food at the pool side bar is really lovely, fresh and very reasonable.
There are lots of activities around the complex and the grounds are so well kept.
The staff especially Holly at the bar are very friendly. Mr Dennis is there morning, noon and night and looks after everyvthing asap.
It is very clean, Sky News and one other english speaking station on TV.
Charge however for the air con :-(

This complex is a little out of the main area which is no harm due to high spirited night time drinkers who cause a lot of noise.
Loads of fab places to eat very reasonable nearby and supermarket on corner.
People very friendly but no night life in complex. loads nearby.
beds at pool very comfortable and loads of umbrellas.
beautiful at night with pool lights lit and bar is good for chat.
Book swap in lobby very well stocked.

We stayed at this hotel between 27 August and 10 September 2012. We had a brilliant time. The apartments is about a 5 minute walk from a huge range of bars and restaurants, about a 15 minute walk from the strip (discos, nightlife) and about 10 minutes from the beach. The apartment was very clean and tidy. We had clean towels every day and bedding every other day. The pool was always clean and we never had a problem getting a sun bed, because if you put towels on them & you arnt there by 11.30 the towels are removed, it was great.

The bar is open from 9am till 2am. You were also able to get food during these times as well. The food available ranged from english breakfast, sandwiches, to full meals. The meals were of large portions. Prices were also very reasonable. ie pork chop 8 euros, beefburgers 4 euros.

The staff were lovely, they treated us like family. Anna, Kelly & Christina who worked on the bar were really friendly and always had a laugh with us. There was Alex the Night Porter and Mr Dennis the manager and not forgetting Harris his little dog. We were really sad to leave and will definitely be booking a return visit for next year.

Reception very well organised on arrival.
Room well equipped, mostly clean although a few hairs in the drawers!
Shower curtain a bit too short for the shower tray.
Definitely got the best block (block 3) overlooking pool but set back enough that the noise from poolside wasn't intrusive. Staff all friendly, drinks cheap. Perfect location 7-8 mins walk from the strip.
Maids every day. Plenty of free sunbeds. Lovely clean pool. Nice balconies...
Really good value for money, would 100% recommend.

Only issue if I really had to moan - the screetching rooster at 8am. But even that wasn't too bad. Would def stay here again.

Spent one week at the Ilios in August and loved it..

The location is perfect.. Its only a few minutes walk to the main strip and Laganas beach but far enough away for some peace at night..

The rooms are basic but clean.. Just what you need after a long day out exploring the island. There was a few ants in the bathroom and it did smell a bit damp but didn't affect my stay.

The staff were brilliant.. Had no problems but if you did there was always somebody there to help.

Air con was extra but was very good to have. It can get very hot at night in the rooms.

Overall we had a great stay at the Ilios and would deffinitly recommend it :)

not far from the beach and not right in the middle of the strip but close to walk to it. plenty of facilities for sports and staff are really friendly. the room could have been a little better there was a few ants and odd smell in the bathroom but overall it was a great place id go there again.

We went to the illios in August this year at first I dident know what to expect but as soon as we checked in you could tell it was going to be an Awsome holiday the staff were lovely and we got on really well with them by the end of the holiday we felt like family ! They always looked after us when we were hung over as it was a preety full on holiday when it came to party. The food was great and the drinks were cheap espesh during happy hour which was 4 hours long ! Perfect for pre drinks. All in all and epic messy lads holiday made that extra bit better by the staff and the accommodation would Definetly stay there again and recommend it to anybody !

Second year in Zante, and decided to stay at Ilios which was Self Catering! Despite the reviews/information saying it was a family based hotel it is not! Any familys that come here to stay would be mistaken as it is packed with '18-30' based people! Perfect for a girls/lads holiday which is just what we wanted! Its about a 10 minute walk from the main strip which is good, as you are also close to the main resturants before the strip, and any of the shops for food etc. Stayed here for 2 weeks, rooms where cleaned daily, maids where in and out every day without fail, mopping up, tidying up, washing the floor, clean bed sheets, clean towels and anything else you needed you could ask for. We wanted an extra pillow and got one straight away, our air-con stopped working for under an hour and they fixed it straight away without any problems what so ever! Nicest people working their, anything you need they will help you with! Always people on the bar, serving drinks, or on reception. Even though its self-catering the rooms have a Microwave, Kettle, & 2 Electric Hobs. Fully equipped with enough plates, cutlery, and cups etc to sort you out for your duration. We eat at home a bit to save money, but finding enough food/meals to cook for 2 weeks became hard! They serve great breakfasts at Ilios for 4 euros, and serve nice meals for lunch and dinner too. Fresh cold drinks served all day round, or tea and coffee. Pool was always kept clean, and enough sunbeds for everyone to relax all day! If your looking for a party holiday this is definitly one of the best hotels to stay at, during the day time its relaxed which is what we wanted, as compared to other hotels, they have so much going on in the daytime with a hangover its the last thing you need if you just want to relax and sunbathe! Nightime gets lively, with loads of teenagers and same aged people in the hotel you all mix and get along well. As I said strip is a ten minute walk, and you get to walk from the bottom of it so you go to the packed out bars at the start of the strip and work your way down! Bar in the hotel is open till late, and can go get drinks and take them back to your room for a few 'pre-drinks'. Alex the Security Guard is a bit strict at night but he is only doing his job, to be far a few of us where very loud at 5/6am and he put up with most of it far better than most hotels would! Regarding what stuff to buy from the rep, from 2 years experience dont buy the full package, go to the ones you and your mates as a group decide to go too! Dont get conned by buying the week package as there all not amazing! Boat Party, Total Karnage, Zero's Paint Party, Waikiki, and anything that Plus has to offer with their Trinity packages are always good! White Party is awful, people will try sell you tickets all the way down the strip, its a waste of money and so far away! All in all an amazing hotel, recommend to anyone who wants good accomdation, good atmosphere and good service! Booked two weeks in July for under £600, last year paid £589 for a week down the road in all inclusive, will definitly be back next year!!

Room Tip: Over near the back of the hotel are 'coupled' rooms as it was only me & my mate we were...
