Reviewed 5 March 2012

There were 9 of us (all girls) so spread across 3 rooms staying at the hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted- if thats the word by security 'who shuns you and acts more like he is in the mafia. Weird. Anyway he kept on telling us to be quiet as we tried to haul our 20kg + bags up the stone stairs (an impossible task without banging it a few times), as he clearly wasn't going to try and help.

We paid for the aircon (total rip off) and checked in as they kept a passport per room which they kept till the end of the holiday.

The position of the hotel is not the best IF you are girls. It is a little walk from the strip and on the first night we were warned NEVER to walk off alonel. There is a lot of green areas... trees/bushes/alleys too where girls had been raped/attacked if alone. However in a big group, we saw the occasional creep but nothing major happened.

The food at the hotel and drink is as expected a rip off, however it is convenient as it has its own supermarket next door, so pre drinks are easy accessible.

If booking trips do not book through tour operators, it is SO much cheaper on the strip where you can to an extent haggle. The waterpark is pretty good and so is the turtle spotting (even though it sounds nerdy).

Palermero restaurant is lovely to eat at though. Definitely worth a visit.

When one of the girls needed medical assistance for a sobar accident the hotel were so hostile and wouldn't help translate nor would they even provide a bandage for a deep wound. It was clear they were not bothered.

I am unsure whether it was because we were girls that the day staff didn't like us, and we often heard them slating us but they were nice to the boys who stayed there? This seemed confusing as we weren't majorly loud, caused no trouble, and the boys next door smoked weed and unplugged the fire detector and constantly tried to hit on us! Oh i forgot to mention they were the families nephews. great.

Other people staying at the hotel got their camera stolen and other bits, one girl even her passport, and the hotel refused to again translate, something so simple? Which meant that everyone needed to pay $150 Euros for a Thomas cook translator, totally unnecessary.

There are plenty of nicer hotels with politer staff in better locations.
Just shop around a bit
Hotel t'zante would be my first choice if i were to go again or Poseidon across the road.

OH nearly forgot they charge you for ANYTHING in this hotel. A bit of mascara on the bedding thats $10 euros... and so it goes on.

as a family of 12 we have been staying in this hotel over 4 rooms for the last 5 years and often there 2/3 times a year and have always had the highest standard of friendly service and cleanliness expected from a self catering hotel and wouldnt stay anywhere else !!! the rooms are always spotless and cleaned everyday with clean towels and Doris the cleaner is very friendly and always greets us with a smile.my mother always manages to cook a sunday lunch for the twelve of us with no problem, and i always manage to cook on the stoves provided with no problem at all, however if we never felt like cooking a meal we ate in the bar area where there is quite a varity of food to choose from with very reasonable prices and must say the food is delicious and if there was anything we wanted that was not on the menu it was never a problem you just need to ask and they would try and accommodate. As stated in a previous review the pool gets cleaned every day by Costa who takes pride in the pool area. there is a supermarket just outside of the hotel which has everything you need, and it is only 5 min walk to the beach. We go to the hotel the same time every year and have made some great friends who is also regulars and have been going to the hotel for numerous years. fantastic hotel with great friendly owners and staff who go out of there way to make you feel welcome, we spent alot of our evenings in the bar where they now have greek nights and barbeques and the couple who run it is fantastic !!!!!! cant wait to get back !!!!!!

We, as 3 friends, travel to Laganas twice a year and would not stay anywhere else! The small, family-run studios/supermarket/bar are second to none! Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. If you want something ordering in the supermarket - it's there for you the same day or next day at the latest. If you want a special meal cooking at the bar - 1 day's notice is all you need to give and it's there and fresh! The rooms, for Greece, are of an excellent standard - 2 electric rings, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment, hairdryer, pans, cutlery, plates, dishes, glasses etc are available in all rooms. The rooms are cleaned daily by Doris, who can't do enough for you if there is a problem. The pool area is well maintained with swings and slides for children. The pool is very carefully cleaned EVERY day and the 'state' of the water in the pool is monitored daily with specialistic equipment by Costa - a family member, who takes great pride in his pool! The 'grime', which one client commented about, is actually the lining which is faded and peeling due to the heat of the sun . Had he been up a little earlier in the day, he would have seen Costa tending to the pool EVERY day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As for the air-conditioning charge, I think you'll find that this is the norm for Greece - It does say in the brochure 'payable locally' maybe some clients need to read the small print before moaning!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love it, and every time we go, there are returning custormers who we recognise and have made friends with - not only from England, but Norway also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can't all be wrong with our choice of appartments/studios!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are facing the sea - trees do block the sea view from some rooms, but this is not the faul...

This was our third September at the Nemesis Apartments, return trips are not our usual thing but this place ticks all our boxes. Firstly the apartments are spotlessly clean and the spec you get for what you pay is excellent. I don't want to cook a four course meal in my apartment on holiday, but with a good fridge, toaster, kettle, microwave and two ring hob you can certainly feed yourselves well if you are on a budget. Did I mention there is an excellently stocked supermarket within the footprint of the Hotel too, so no lugging six bottles of water half a mile every couple of days. The bathrooms are clean functional and well appointed by Greek standards and importantly there is always plenty of hot water and clean towels. The location strikes the right balance between being close enough to access the beach and main strip with it's bars and restaurants whilst being sufficiently far enough away to be quiet in the evenings. The pool is very clean and is managed on a daily basis. I can only imagine the previous reviewer was asleep at the times of day the work was carried out. However what really makes this place are it's people. The owners and there extended family are always on hand and nothing is too much trouble and this year the bar and catering standards have reached new heights with the arrival of a new couple. We had great lunchtime snacks both English and Greek and then some superb fresh fish on a couple of occasions which was pre ordered and cooked the day it was caught. So many of the guests we have met in recent years have been staying with the Nemesis for many consecutive years which does underline the very high standards they maintain.

Room Tip: All rooms face east so you get the sun in the mornings and the balcony is cooler by night

We travelled as 5 friends aged 21 for a clubbing holiday in Laganas. We loved Laganas and loved the hotel! The staff were so friendly, the pool was small but clean and as we travelled late in the season we had it to ourselves! The rooms were clean and the food in the hotel was good. It was a 10 min walk to the beach, a bit further to the strip and there was a part of the walk that was quite dark, but we always walked all together and we could have got a cab if needed. I want to go back to Nemesis right now!!!

I would agree with most of the comments already made about this hotel. It has 12 rooms with I belive 3 single beds in each room, but this does not mean no space. The beds and pillow were a little firm for me, but this is personall choice There is a small balcony, 2 chairs and a small table. Self catering ??? 2 very small rings plus a microwave. Bacon and eggs, do not expect to produce a 4 course meal.
The hotel bar and shop are very well run with reasonable prices. The hotel is on a side street but is very busy during the day as there are 2 large hotels which have a steady stream of airport and tour traffic plus service and water transporters. The road is quiet at night with very little noise from the bar or traffic. Within 10/20 mins stroll of the hotel there are many good restuarants.
The pool area does need clean/maintenance. The white sun beds need a good clean and the pool had a ring of grim around the pool . This grim was there when we arrived and still there when we left. I did not see any pool maintenance/cleaning being carried out whilst we were there. One final negative, "Be prepaired for the 49 Euro charge per week for the air conditioning" this I understand is a common charge in Zante !!!
Would I stay at the Nemeses again, Yes.

Room Tip: All room face the street and are in the full sun till early evening. About 17-30 in early September.

Have just got back from a 2 week stay with my wife, we loved this place. Its in a quiet spot but not far from all the action, its very clean and the staff there are so helpful and friendly, especially Deni behind the bar, who is lovely and gives loads of tips and advice on where to go and what to do. Food is reasonably priced and very good quality and they do regular barbys which are lovely. People slag off Laganas but it can be as mad or as quiet as you want - a cracking place. !
