I chose this escapades hotel (not 18-30 but party holiday) as me and my partner wanted nightlife but lots of things to do on our holiday. We absolutely loved it and were busy everyday enjoying ourselves and most nights on the strip partying. IGNORE BAD REVIEWS NEW OWNER!! (There son -Dennis)
I will review everything in parts-
Perfect if you want to be close to the strip and beach (which is at the end of the strip) but not actually in the hustle and bustle. Its round the corner one minute away. There is supermarket right next to it too.
We were very surprised how clean and modern it was. The maid who was lovely came most days with clean sheets and towels. We bought a safe for 15euros which you need as there is George the security man which is not the man on older reviews. He stays up all night walking around the hotel and will chat to you and have a laugh when you come back steaming or let you in if you have locked yourself out. The workers were all excellent and so helpful. Food was normal English prices in the hotel 5euros for breakfast or burger and chips. Drinks are normal price or on happy hour 6-9 2 cocktails 5euro or 2 bottles of beer for 3euros. The pool is a good size and you always get a sunbed. The kitchen has a fridge with little freezer shelf and one big hob ring and a tiny hob ring. Also a kettle.
ON ARRIVAL THE REP WILL PRESSURE YOU TO BUY ALL THE EVENTS DO NOT BUY!!!!
HALF THE PRICE ON THE STRIP!! The reps working at bars are grabbing you every time you walk past about different events so you wont miss out. The hotel is noisy at night because you can hear the strip. But otherwise PERFECT for those wanting to party.
We done the paint party which was AMAZING!! Beach party on cherry bay and a boat trip to see the turtles where you can swim to beaches. There is loads of other events foam parties and other party boat trips. All priced between 15-40euro. Trust any of the shops on the strip they are fine! I took 500 and I came back with about 50euro but I ate out loads and done most things
No deposit needed only 20euro a day ask about insurance and be careful who to buy them off as some have been damaged by mafia purposely. Go to the big shops. We went all over the island visiting caves and beaches. Zante town isn't far and do nice meals not a lot of shops to look at though. The police stopped us when we went down a one way and wanted 600euro but let us off. So be careful police are dodgy and make sure you wear a helmet as people have been badly hurt in the past.
Most food we bought was a disappointing as the meat doesn't taste right and so ate lots at mcdonalds. We went for a meal on the beach which was nice X-Paradiso treat you like royalty! Buy a gyros from the strip abit like a kebab!!
The beach at the end of the strip is pretty packed and ppl keep trying to get you in everywhere so get a free bus from the bus stops along the strip either at 10 or 1 and they pick you up at 5 and take you back. This will take you to St Nics beach all your watersports beach bar and wicked tunes all day.
The nightlife is really good lots of bars and 2 main clubs rescue/zeros which get rammed and like a rave all night. Whatever music you like they will play it in zante as it caters for everyone. We didn't pay to get in a club unless there was a big event on. Drinks are same sort of prices here unless they offer you deals, sin city is good to start vodka and coke, 2 sambucas and a yager bomb for 5euros!!
If you want a bit of everything this holiday is for you me and boyfriend had the best time ever! I wrote a review as I was so nervous going here after reading all the bad ones. Its all lies don't go to a 3 star hotel near the strip expecting a 5 star relaxing holiday!
