My partner and I have just returned from a great relaxing week at this hotel and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to return. The staff are so friendly and courteous the hotel was spotlessly clean and the food is absolutely delicious and there's plenty of it

My wife and I Booked this Hotel after reading various reviews on Trip advisor.... we were looking for a cheap last minute relaxing Holiday where we could get some sun and enjoy the rest... We found what we were looking for with this Hotel.

Yes it was the end of season but we new it would be... traveled second week in October 18th - 25th so were taking the risk on the weather. Most of the week was lovely and sunny with temps into the 70s with only 1 day of showers.This Hotel has a very short transfer time from the airport ( which is New, Modern and clean) approx 5 mins by Taxi which was ideal.

Hotel was great and suited our needs... Booked All Inclusive and had no problems getting drinks when needed, All Inclusive finished at Midnight so plenty of time to relax in the Bar / lounge and enjoy a drink.

As end of season only few people in hotel approx 30 at beginning of week reducing to 15 or so by end of week, but the staff were great and the food was lovely, well cooked and good choice everyday even though there were only a few people staying.

Hotel was clean and well situated, only 5 min walk to the Beach and not much further to the center of Kalamki for shops and resturants, Bars etc. Outdoor pool at Hotel very nice but very cold... Bedroom basic but clean and suitable, bath very small, shower adequant and the slamming of bathroom windows made for some entertainment..... Got cold in the evenings so requested a blanket for the bed and got one without any problems.

Hired a car for the day which only cost 25 euros but fuel is expensive at approx 176 euros a litre, although the island is small and we easily toured the island in a day. There are some lovely places to see on Zante and would recommend hiring a car.

There are a lot of wild / stray cats and Dogs ( Which my wife felt very sorry for) but they did not cause us any problems. Took some insect repelant but did not get bitten by any insects.

Met some great people and had a very relaxing Holiday....

Room Tip: High Room with Pool view is good... Upgrade to superior room if given option as bigger rooms and balcony.

This review is written on the last week of the season, middle of October.
This hotel is so frustrating, it has the potential to be really good sadly let down by a number of factors.
I believe the same standards should be applied to a hotel, whether you are at the start of the season, middle or end, or maybe this is how it is?
Let’s start with the good, the hotel receptionist Petra is lovely cannot do enough for you, speaks very good English. She puts that personal touch to your holiday. The location of the hotel is good, quiet, not far from the beach. The aircraft noise did not bother us; in fact it’s interesting to see them close up.
We were upgraded to a Superior Room, (only about twenty five people left in hotel), what a let down. The bathroom tiles were dirty, wished I had not looked under the bed. The mattresses were hard; springs had broken, more comfy on the floor. If these were the Superior Room’s, what are the standard room’s like?
Previous reviews have said this Hotel is not a Thomson four T, I agree it should be a three; their own rating is a three star.
The rooms need urgent modernising, especially the bathrooms, and a really good clean. The rest of the Hotel is ok, it is clean and spacious.
The food was a good point; majority of it is cooked from scratch, a welcome relief to eat Hotel food with taste. Don’t expect a wide selection, jelly and ice cream everyday a bit 70’s.
You can have drinks with your meals, not just one. The rep told us the Hotel was getting a bit tight, trying to tell customers only one drink, we had as much as we wanted, as it should be.
If you want peace and quiet with no entertainment this is the hotel for you, just as we like it sister hotel Grande Bitzaro just down the way has all the entertainment you want.
As for outside the Hotel, Kalamaki a strip of bars and restaurants, plenty of rubbish everywhere, the rats and dogs seemed to be in their element, Laganos speaks for itself.
Compared to other Greek islands Zante a real let down, it’s needs a damn good clean up of all the rubbish everywhere.

Room Tip: Get a high floor, overlooking the pool.

We have read reviews about the food here being average and no choice, this wasn't the case at all. The food was delicious always hot, plentiful, tasty and with lots of variety. The restaurant staff were very friendly also.
The hotel had a family run feel to because the staff were so friendly and the hotel was smaller than most in the vacinity. Petra on front desk was lovely!
I would advise not going all inclusive though because AC didn't get much more than us at all. The fizzy drink was cheap brand (although not on offer to HB, you had to spend €3 on a small bottle) the beer was served in small plastic cups, not pints like the paying customers got and the ice cream was scoops in a little metal dish, that and cheese toasties I didn't see any different to FB. We were FB and it was perfectly adequate.
The gardens and outdoor seating area was lovely.
The hotel is very quiet but you could use the sister hotel up the road. Perfect for a chilled holiday!!

Have just returned after spending two weeks at Bitzaro Palace. Decided to stay here after reading the reviews and knew the location having stayed at the Roseland Hotel next door.We decided this time to try a holiday on a full board basis, which we had never done before on a holiday to Greece.We both agreed it was something we would do again, made the holiday very relaxing not having to think every day of where we were going to eat and having to go out when maybe we did nt feel like it.We found the food to be very good, plenty of choice for everyone. The staff in the restaurant were really friendly,always with a smile which makes such a difference!
Yes the bathrooms are small, but not a problem to us. We asked for a top floor room so that we did nt get disturbed by people walking around above us with their shoes on, why do people do that? Found the hotel a quiet one, no passing traffic to keep anyone awake at night. The airport is nearby, but having stayed in the area before we have never found this a problem. The planes are close overhead as they land, but only for a few seconds and we find it quite interesting.
We used the sunbeds in the garden area where there was shade, agree with other reviews about how annoying it is to see towels on sunbeds, why do people do that as it shows a complete lack of respect for other people and yes they are very sad! Mentioned this to Petra at reception and she said they did remove towels at one point, but this caused the staff problems, so they stopped doing it. Talking of Petra at reception, yes she is wonderful. Went to see her about something we were nt happy with and she dealt with it the same day. Big thank you to her.She is a legend. Can t understand why anyone would want clean towels more than any other day. Not exactly good for the environment given how precious water is when it does nt rain for months at a time!Can t comment on the bar area as we went to the Roseland next door every evening.Would return to this hotel for a really quiet and relaxing holiday, near the sea and lovely beach. Make sure to take plenty of books!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool may be a little noisier
