We stayed here at the end of May 2014, for a week. We can find no fault, and everything was geared for a relaxing holiday. The room was cleaned every day by pleasant staff, the apartment grounds were well tended, with lovely garden areas, and the pool/bar area was well-run. Staff-wise, Kelly and Ulli were great hosts at the bar, which remained open til 2am, the prices were very reasonable, and the food very palatable!!. Denis (the owner), was quiet, but a total gentleman. The Thomson rep was helpful, without being intrusive. We felt safe and secure at all times. My partner and I are in our 50's, but my partner's daughter (20) and 2 friends are going here in 10 days, and we won't be worrying about the care they will receive!! Value for money, and a great advert for Zakynthos/Greece.

Myself and 5 other girls stayed at Illios this month for a week. We absolutely loved the hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious with a nice balcony. The food was really good but wasn't expensive. As a group, we had eaten 17 chicken club sandwiches in a week. The hotel is located a nice 15 minute walk from the laganas strip and so you are able to escape the nightlife. Our experience at Illios was mostly made by the friendly staff who are very welcoming and have top notch banter. Shout out to Kelly and Alex. (Shots on us) We recommend this hotel to all young people looking for a typical Zante holiday but wish to stay in a lovely hotel.

All of the staff were not only helpful, polite and good at their job but they were up for a laugh too! Very caring and memorable!
The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Maid came in every 1-2 days and was very polite/helpful. We had self catering but our kitchen had two hobs, a microwave, kettle, toaster and cuttlery, etc included.
Perfect amount of sun beds around the pool area.. wasn't too cramped but there was always a space for you!
Food and drink were all pretty cheap and good quality! The walk to the bars, etc was about 2 minutes.. The strip was a little further (about 5-8 minutes) but you end up going on a bit of a bar crawl before anyway!

Plenty of activities during the day (football, ping pong, pool table, water vollyball) and the wifi was pretty cheap! 2 euros for an hour.. best wifi spot was in the reception or food area where there was air conditioning!
Will definitely return there.. mainly due to the excellent staff!

Awesome hotel! Very clean but basic but for a small group on a drinking holiday it was perfect. Music playing throughout day and night was great, not to loud but could be heard! Chris the rep was good! Approachable and offered advice throughout the stay! Walk to the strip was about 10 mins, seemed like and hour when drunk so we ended up having a taxi each morning back! Loads of sunbeds and no need to reserve any as there was always enough! Bar staff, reception and maids were all friendly and always there to help! Loved every minute of the holiday and even considering applying to rep next season! Best hotel, best destination! 10/10 :)

Me and a group of 6 other girls stayed here for a week holiday and we absolutely loved it! The staff are some of the friendliest people I have ever met, good, cheap food and drinks and rooms which are cleaned everyday. I would say this hotel is not at all suitable for families or elderly couples as everyone at the hotel at the same time as me were about 18 years old, staying in large groups of friends and the noise levels were certainly rather loud (partly due to us..!). The Thomson's rep - Chris, was a helpful guy, a bit of a lad but perfectly nice. He greeted us with a free shot when we arrived, perfect way to start a holiday! The hotel was about 10 minute walk from the main strip and the same to the beach, good location as it was away from noise. The music did start very early around the poolside, especially if you had a heavy night before but it was bearable! Also there was a security guard who stayed up all night to make sure everyone got back to their rooms safely and the looked after the keys for us. Lovely, safe hotel, lovely people, amazing holiday! Would definitely recommend it to groups of teens on their first holiday away from home. :)

Stayed here for a week with my friends in July 2014. I do not have a bad word to say about Ilios. All the staff are friendly, the manager interacts with the guests, the bar staff are great and the night manager was so lovely. They all knew what rooms everyone was in, a really welcoming atmosphere. The food in the restaurant was lovely and much cheaper than places in the town. Rooms were clean, sheets changed every day. All rooms had a balcony and sufficient equipment. A bit quieter than the other hotels in Zante, in a good way, but still had the uni/leavers holiday feel, bar played music over the pool all day. Enough sun loungers and anything you wanted, the staff were happy to help you with. If you are thinking about Ilios, go for it! You will not regret your choice if you stay here.

Room Tip: We didn't get a choice of room but stayed beside the pool. This was close to the action so if yo...

Not recommended if you are over 21 or would like to sleep at night. Beds and pillows are like rock. The "twenties" set up allow for parties ALL night in their rooms and management and the Thomson rep think this is acceptable.

Room Tip: Dont go here if you like to sleep.
