I travelled with friends in May this year when the season was just begining. As I always do I checked out reviews on here and to be honest I had 2nd thoughts about going with all the rules and total rubbish I read on some of the reviews on here.
In my opinion this hotel was the best hotel I have ever stayed in out of many holidays abroad. Yes there were rules, but they are needed to make this hotel what it is.... beautiful in and out the interior was sooo lovely and posh that I thought I was living in dreamland for what I paid for this holiday... I would have expected to have spent just one night alone!!
The staff are friendly and very helpful if you got a problem, and the security staff is awesome too, just need to be quiet at night its just out of respect for other guests really.
There were a lot of 18-30's here because it was the hotel that was in the book, as it was early in the season it probably wasn't as crazy as later on in the season but it was blooming brilliant the atmosphere, spacious balconys, lovely pool too, basic but that's enough for me, i hear some people were also lucky to go when they installed a spa pool. it wasn't there when we all went!!
As we were on bed and breakfast we had meals out and about zante and tried itallian's salt and peppers, the chinese one and the american diner, amongst others on the strip and all food was fantastic.
I gave sleep a 4 because even though the hotel is reasonably strict with noise the doors to the rooms are quite thin really and you can hear noise! But this hotel is fantastic, I would definatly go back for sure!!
Lagana' itself is nice got a lovely tiny island to visit for a few hours (head towards the beach and turn right) we had a Toastie there one hungover morning, and the lovely bar tender gave us shot. its a very tiny place but the views of langana from the island are lovely.
The clubs are fab we went on one of our reps trips (the others we went out and did ourselves) which was the school disco, it was an amazing night of great music and awesome atmosphere the best rep trip really for me and my friends, as we are over 25 we have done booze cruises etc so didn't bother with them.
We took a trip on a boat around the island and waterpark trip from a lovely man called georgiou about two tour companys up from ionis to the left and had a fab time on the boat we saw dolphins and fab views of the island and of course the ship wrecked beach pure paradise in greece in my opinion was the coldest water but most beautiful place i have ever swam, bit of warning wear some swim shoes as the pebbles hurrrrt on the beach!!
The waterpark was a fab day out too, lots of slides to keep the kids and the big kids occupied!!
Overall Zante is a beautiful Island - I have been wanting to go back now since i got home, I since went to Malia in September this year and Zante holiday was by far the best on hotel and location and pure service. Don't miss your chance to visit this place!!
