Just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel and my god what a place, The hotel itself is amazing the views the service the staff, Everything met our expectations and went beyond. Very short transfer from the Airport to the hotel we'd prebooked our transfer however i would imagine it'd be around 15 euro in a taxi if that, The hotel is on a hill however the surrounds are all flat so no worried there for anyone with walking difficulties. Upon arrival at the hotel we were quickly checked in we'd booked all inclusive but didn't did presented with any wristband which was a bonus we were given a short tour of the hotel whilst they took our bags to our room for us. The views from the outside patio are amazing and you can sit out and enjoy your breakfast, dinner and evening meal just taking in the spectacular views whilst sipping on your favourite cocktail all included in the all inclusinve deal (i've been to hotels where cocktails have been chargable).
The hotel provide free hire of beach towels for the pool and you can collect these from reception no deposits just ask and they are given. The swimming pool is an infinity pool you can again swim to the edge and enjoy the amazing views overlooking Zante town.
The hotel is fairly new and hasn't been open very long so a few things are still in the process of being finished off like the jacuzzi pool etc but it doesn't matter it didn't spoil our stay no works were happening whilst we were there!
The pool area gets rather busy and sunbeds are reserved very fast however theres ample space for you to grab someone to soak up the sun.
The food was a little bit random from day to day but there was something for everyone we didn't go hungry thats for sure.
Every Tuesday there is a 'Greek' night when you have a guy singing and a few greek dancers to entertain you however this is the only entertainment but once your sat outside enjoying a few drinks etc you soon get chatting to our residents.
We had an amazing week here celebrating our wedding anniversary it was so lovely i can see why they are voted top hotel in the area. It costs around 7 euro to get from the hotel to the middle of zante town Solomas Sq which is best visited at night rather in the day if you time it right the hotel offer a free minibus service 4 times a day to the town and twice a day trip to tvsilli beach (sorry cant spell it).
Love this hotel can't believe it's only 3 star when it's all completed i'd imagine it'll be up there with the 5 star hotels.
The Staff need a special mention they never stop working they serve on you hand and foot not what i would have expected at all i'm not fussed about having to go to the bar for a drink but they do waitress service. Reception were very very friendly and helpful and were only too eager to answer any questions or book excursions and taxis.
Well done Aquis Avalon we can't wait to come back
