“Perfect pre season short stay”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

We recently spent 1 week in this hotel and we enjoyed fully the experience. The hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the beach of Tsilivi, in case you don't want to enjoy the 2 nice hotel swimming pools. The rooms are reasonably sized. The standard restaurant for half board is fully buffet, perfect if you have small childs as no waiting time between courses. The quality of all dishes is very good, fresh and tasty fruits and vegetables are available every day, off course the presentation of the dishes will not be as good as they would deserve. Staff is very friendly and professional. The only negative point is the fact that gras cutting was performed at 7.30am, we understand the fact that no time is good for gras cutting close to the swimming pool but that's simply too early, especially if you room is ground floor on the pool side.

We visit Lesante Hotel and Spa at the end of May 2013. Concerning the breakfast I have to say that it satisfies the most pretentious customer: the buffet had everything you can imagine. I was excited by the man that cooked crepe and omelet in front of you the same moment! We also ate at the atmospheric Ambrosia Restaurant by the pool, where the menu is created by the awarded chef Dimitris Skarmoutsos. We tried “kritharoto with mushrooms” and “pork cooked for 17 hours” (it melted in mouth) and both were delicious. We also used the lovely indoor pool and got relaxed in the sauna. The staff was very kind and dedicated to its customers. Thank you for the wonderful stay. I will definitely visit Lesante hotel again.

Just returned from our second visit to this hotel. Very high standards of service, cleanliness, food and lovely staff. Didn't want to leave. We took our daughter , 6, felt welcome and safe and most importantly relaxed and looked after. You will not find better. Will return for another 5 star week.

Very nice hotel that has all the amenities and it's in a nice enough location near the beach... but the food here is not great. We had breakfast and dinner included, but I'd definitely only go for breakfast included as the dinner was incredibly poor. Dinner was simply buffets of very ordinary food.

The rooms were very nice, and the pool is one of the best I've seen, so you won't be disappointed to stay here... but things can definitely need improve with the food.

Thank you once again for a fantastic holiday - this is our 4th stay at lesante - and we WILL be back. The staff and family are lovely, helpful and happy people. The hotel and outside areas are very clean & everything is kept to a very high standard.

Room Tip: Main hotel rooms over looking the pool - but all are lovely!

...Greece and the Greek islands aren't renowned for amazing hotels. So 5 star was a dubious monicker when we wanted some May sun and a week in a suitably exclusive hotel. (We're very fussy people btw.)

This may sound silly, but we work hard and so we expect to pay for relaxation and exclusivity. We don't mind it. But we've stayed in many hotels that have great websites, flowery language... That always disappoint. Massively. (they don't get reviewed btw).

Lesante is quite different. It's impeccably staffed with a fantastic level of service... But let's be honest again, service is expected in a 5* hotel right? I expect to be made welcome and looked after. It's what we've paid for.

In a 5* you'd also expect great food and drink. Lesante has an executive chef and a team of chefs. The last place we stayed with one of those was in Las Vegas.

The rooms and communal areas are fitted with the finest fixtures, they are designed and built with exclusivity in mind - not thrown up poorly like many Mediterannean hotels we've witnessed.

In short, throw in guaranteed sunshine, a beach nearby, a fantastic welcome, the touches of exclusivity that one expects with 5 star luxury and you've got the recipe for an awesome relaxing break... And in these difficult times you'd want to know honestly if it was a 5 star with great service, food, location and pools.

Lesante is all of this. Honestly. It will only amaze and never disappoint.

Extremely clean, well maintained hotel. Staff were very friendly, professional, helpful and had pride in their work. Food was of a high standard and waiters/waitresses kept the dining area spotless and were very attentive. Reception were keen to assist and nothing too much trouble. Pool area was beautiful and sunbeds very comfortable. Quiet and sophisticated would best describe the evenings. Was nice how everyone dressed well for dinner and the surroundings certainly warranted it. Entertainment was piano and violinist so ventured into town when wanted a livelier evening. When we had a night at the hotel bar did find the barman at the main bar inside very charismatic, enjoyable to speak with and hospitable with great sense of passion for his work. Drinks little pricey however. Rooms were very nice. Plenty of room, impressive decor and cleaned thoroughly. Bathroom equally as stylish. Had 2 nights when water not hot but these were not good weather days and heated by solar so probably why. There was a door in our room which was for adjoining rooms which we did not require so locked but did mean lost sound proofing and so could hear noisy couple for first few days and then they were replaced by loud snorer but that is just luck of the draw with who your neighbours are Beds very comfortable and spacious. Lovely pool view from the balcony. Beach was only a few minutes away and town 10 mins at most walking. Recommend having a drink/meal at the Balcony Restaurant for a sunset view which is just round the corner. Hired a car and visited the turtle beach with spectacular sea views and stretch of sand. If you want a relaxing, quieter hols with good dining and smart surroundings this is for you.

Room Tip: Was delighted to have had pool view room as some others either overlooked car park or out the back w...
