Stayed here from the 31st July - 6th August and had an amazing week!
The hotel is lovely, rooms are spotless, the maid came in every day and we just used to leave a pile of dirty towels on the floor and she would change them for us. However, as the air con, safe and fridge are not included in the price we took up the 70 euro deal for a week which included them as we knew that we would definitely be needing a cold bottle of water in the morning! Also, remember that you will need to pay 30 euros breakage deposit per person which they will give you back at the end providing everything is ok, we had no problem getting ours back!
Do not worry about it being on the strip, you literally cannot hear anything from the rooms, so you can definitely get a good sleep!
The breakfast is continental and is served from 8:30 - 10:00 but most of the time we were up too late so we just ordered breakfast from the pool bar as it's reasonably priced.
Do not let the reps talk you into doing all the weeks events as it is too much and costs like 250 euros. We did the paint party, foam party and school reunion through the reps and to be honest next time i wouldn'tbother, i would just buy them through the actual clubs.
The two events that you NEED to do are the paint party which is at rescue club and a lot of fun and the Rum and Raybands booze cruise - it is 40 euros but it is by far the best thing that i did out there! You can can pre book at www.thisiszante.com or just pop to the info centre down the strip, its like opposite the club, sizzle. They come around with big bottles of vodka and rum and just pour it in your mouth, the drinks on board are 5 euros but i just waited for the bottle to come round as that was free!
We also paid 20 euros for total karnage - what a complete waste of money, basically all you pay for is an orange t-shirt. I would definitely recommend not doing this.
Chevys and olympic flame along the strip are good for dinner, reasonably priced and have free wifi! Cool peppers which is along the beach, is amazing for dinner cost us 20 euros each for a starter, main and a coke, so quite pricey but definitely worth a visit!
Right, on to night life now. We always used to go the pool bar for a drink first as we loved Zak, the bar man, he would also make us whatever drink we wanted, just tell him and he will create it! We would head out around 12 as before then it is dead! We really loved chevys and the three lions to start off with and then club wise go to, Linekers, Rescue and Zeros. At around half 3 head to cherry bay which is near the beach, great way to end the night. Open to 5am weeknights and 9am at the weekend, girls get in free which was a massive bonus for us!
Oh and lastly, Nikos and Adonis the security guards have been getting some bad reviews on here but i just want to point out that if you have respect for them, then they will have respect for you. We got on really well with them, always having a joke when we rolled up at 6 in the morning asking how adonis our greek god was which was so funny as he is the big, fat one!
Overall, brilliant hotel, briliant nightlife but dont be pressured by the reps!
