“great!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This is a great hotel. I was there last year for a week with my friend the staff are very helpful and friendly, the hotel its self is lovely we had 1 of the updated rooms which is very stylish and modern. We were close to the strip about a 5-10 minute walk with loads of bars and restaurants all very cheap but good, because the hotel was so close to the strip we thought it would be very noisy at night but we never heard a peep. Rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard. I would highly recommend this hotel infact I am planning to return next year and can not wait.

Room Tip: Ask for 1 of the updated rooms.

Just returned after having an absolute fabulous two weeks for the seventh year. Next day my husband & I booked for next year. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with such genuine warmth from Margarita, Tony, Marissa, Vicki and ALL the staff. Once again we were able to catch up with friends who we had met over the years, and never stopped laughing all the time. Such a huge tonic! The food, the cleanliness, the standard has never faltered. All fruit and vegetables are grown across the road - the varieties on the menu are amazing. How some people can say that the meals are boring, astounds me. This is a great hotel for couples and families, but 18-30's are a no-no. Sophie and Lottie put their all into entertaining you during the day and evening. The whole family put their all into pleasing everyone whilst they are staying there, so deserve great success and praise. Excellent hotel and looking forward to next May. Have recommended this hotel to so many people. The only down side, is the extra weight incurred into the two weeks!!!! The rep. Was not a good advert to Thomas Cook as she never made eye contact with me, or gave us any info during our stay.

Room Tip: For 17 euros it is well worth the money to travel to and fro the airport (6 mins)

We were a group of 6 18/19 year olds staying here in 2014. We stayed all inclusive and the food and drinks were all lovely and we never went hungry! We wanted to visit the strip a few times and the hotel was only a short 10 mins walk away, but we also aren't typical party-crazy youngsters so we sometimes stayed in and got a good nights sleep so we were glad the hotel was off a side road and no noises woke us. The swimming pools were lovely, and the boys loved the football/volleyball areas. There is a little shop right next to the hotel which was so handy for ice creams, water, souvenirs etc. The holiday reps and hotel staff couldn't have been nicer or more friendly. There was plenty going on in the hotel too but we chose to stay by the swimming pool or play table tennis or have a game of pool. This hotel was a family hotel so there is a mix of young children, young adults like us, adults, and elderly but this suited us since it wasn't just lots of loud youths. The room we stayed in was very large, modern, and clean with a balcony and the maid service was brilliant. I went with 5 lads, one of which was my boyfriend and sometimes myself and he would split off from the group and this hotel is quite romantic and tranquil for couples too. I think this hotel suits everyone and I would 100% recommend it, can't wait to stay here again!

Just returned from a very good hotel margarita had a wonderful week made even better by the people we met who have been going back time and time again . Food was all freshly cooked and lovely , just far enough away from the strip that it was just nice a lovely family run hotel very welcoming adult pool out front but with no bar you have to go inside to get drinks which was my only criticism and family pool out back with bar and snacks all an all a lovely stay

We stayed in the Margarita in May 2014 as a group of four 18 year-old girls. The hotel was basic, what you'd expect for what we paid. Our room was cleaned 6 days out of the 7 we were there, and towels changed twice. We did a package holiday with Thomas Cook which meant we got a rep over there; who by the way was useless. Walking home from a night out I got my bag snatched which had in our room key. The night porter was really helpful and let us into our room, and arranged for the locks to be changed for us the next day. However, whenever we tried to find Georgia (the rep) to ask her to report it, she was nowhere to be found. I understand this isn't the hotel's fault, but she really wasn't much help when we needed her.

Food wasn't great, we lived off chip butties from the snack bar by the pool for a week. Big shout out to Pedro the bar man at the pool snack bar, he was great and really friendly. Alcohol was unlimited (obviously) and there was no limit to the amount of drinks you could get at once, like some hotels I've seen. The strip is about 15mins walk away, and I would definitely not recommend anyone to walk home from the strip, because that's when my bag got snatched. After that we always got a taxi back to the hotel.

Overall a good holiday, but you get what you pay for. We basically wanted a bed to sleep in and a pool to swim in, the rest was all about partying. If you want an immaculate and pristine hotel with spectacular food, don't go to the Margarita.

We just spent a wonderful 2 weeks at the Margarita in Laganas, Zante. We went as a family holiday and the family run hotel made us feel very at home and very welcome! We were in the family block, which is perfect as all the kids are in one block and not waking up the other guests - we were also pretty secluded from the 18-30s who were staying at the hotel and hardly heard a peep out of them - although I know others were woken up by them - I would say the hotel really doesn't suit having youth out clubbing as it's a family hote and there are plenty of other hotels better suited for that. The hotel is locatd jus a 5 minute walk from the strip and 10 minutes from the beach which is ideal as you're walking distance but it isn't all shoved in your face. The food is lovely and there is something for everyone - small parties get put on tables with other small parties which is a great way to meet people. The absolute highlight of the week for us was the entertainment team - the 3 girls, Michelle, Sophie and Lotty worked incredibly hard, were always around for a chat and had something for everyone - from themed days for the kids to killer pool for the men to aqua splash for the ladies - the evenings always had a kids disco, bingo and then evening entertainment - the girls worked really well as a dynamic trio and with Sophie being an incredible singer, Lotty a wonderful Tap Dancer and Michelle being a very funny actor and jack of all trades they had a wonderful set up - the kids absolutely adored them also. However, a couple of days before the end of our holiday, one of the entertainers, Michelle, disappeared and we later learned that she'd been moved to another hotel. We asked if she was coming back or if they were sending somebody else but Sophie and Lotty explained they were now on their own. This was a terrible shame as Michelle had such an impact on the dynamic on the team, and the two remaining girls had a much harder job without her - we sincerely hope this was only temporary and they bring Michelle back as the hotel realistically needs at least 3 entertainers, the girls were stretched enough with 3 of them, and it's unrealistic to leave them with only 2 - we would love to come back but we would say - the hotel needs at east 3 entertainers - 2 is not enough to keep it at a high standard. But good job girls all 3 of you made our holiday what it was and the kids keep asking after you!

We were made very welcome from the minute you arrive (greeted by Margarita) to the time you leave.The rooms are clean and tidy, bedding changed twice a week and towels every day Food well cooked and plentiful, from a buffet style service you are able to choose from a simple salad to a 3/4 course meal (be aware of the cakes and ice cream at lunch and dinner time GET RATHER MOORISH) Swimming pool area clean and the activities are all around the rear pool these include darts , table tennis , French boules and for the more energetic water arobics during the day with a pool for the toddlers whilst at the front there is an adult only quiet pool. In the evening there is a kids disco,a game of bingo and family entertainment. A really enjoyable time from start to finish and will definitly be going again .
