My boyfriend and I visited Zante last year in July 2011 for a week B&B and we didn't want to leave it was so amazing! This should be a 4 Star hotel!
The Room: The hotel room was spot on. There were no problems in the room, the bed was comfortable, the shower worked perfectly, and it was cleaned spotless everyday!!! The maids even organised our shoes nicely in a row! The only problem we had was a broken lock on the balcony door when we arrived, but that was fixed by the time we returned to the room from dinner!
Food: The breakfast was lovely, with a continental breakfast buffet style which was lovely! We ended up waking up late a few times over the week so we missed out some mornings. And when we missed out we headed over to a little cafe called Ruby's Cafe a minute walk away for a fry up!
Location: The hotel is located perfectly at the end of the busiest street in Argassi which may I say, was not busy at all. It was all so laid back relaxed and beautiful! Definitely a perfect location for a relaxing couples holiday! When you walk out from the bar, you walk onto a lovely terrace with tables, chairs and sunbeds which follow round to the pool and the pool bar. But best of all, steps straight onto the beach which is lovely and quiet. Though be warned, you have to pay for beach sunbeds as they are separate from the hotel! We happily stayed on the tables and chairs on the terrace playing cards and not getting sandy!
As for the street it's on, it is a lovely walk with a great selection of bars, shops and restaurants. We tried something different every day for lunch and dinners and took trips to the bars which had comfortably loud music and a great friendly atmosphere. Don't forget to take the horse and cart ride, which is lovely and romantic!
The Bar: The bar is run by an amazing woman called Monica! And our one regret was not spending more time at the hotel bar! The bar was quiet but full of conversation with couples of all ages, chatting to each other and having a good time. We had drinks at the bar on our last evening, and Monica was lovely even having banter with us about how my boyfriend should let me win snooker and giving us extra free coins for the pool table, topping up the peanut bowl and being VERY generous with our drink measurements telling me that "if you're going to drink, do it properly" when I didn't want half half vodka to coke, though my boyfriend was happy with his ratio! You'd feel very welcome at the bar!
Overall: Overall this was an amazing hotel and I would return here again without a doubt! Perfect 5 Star treatment for a 3 star hotel! Don't let one bad review ruin your choice! Thank You for a perfect couples first holiday!
