Before booking our Holiday we always check on Trip advisor as we do not trust the Travel agents recommendations. Unfortunately Trip advisors reports are not necessary true as they have to depend upon the type of holiday maker and their age.. My wife and I are both in later years and were not aware that Zante is now another Ibeza where the average age is between 16 and 21 . The majority of these Holiday makers are just out for a good time and would not know a good hotel or good food . The reports from trip advisor showed this to be a four Star rating . The hotel is nice and the rooms are extremely good but that as far as it goes. The Hotel is situated a long way from the beach and therefore most people stay around the hotels pools. When you get to the beach it is crowded . Having spent the whole day on the beach who wants a long walk back to the hotel. Food despite what others have said it is not good and quite restricted. I know of two times when they had Pork ribs on the problem being if you did not get there early and they went they were not replaced so being late meant you went with out. Salads were plain and if you liked spaghetti then that was fine. Why you should go to a Greek island to eat spaghetti is beyond me. Service - This is a family run hotel but does not excuse the lack of service. There are no pool towels Sundays there are no beds made and no cleaning of the room. Toilet paper has to be put in a bin beside the toilet as the system can not cope with flushing toilet paper. Although termed as all inclusive The late poolside bar closes at 11.45 .
Linen is only changed twice weekly . This is not what you would expect from 4 star and just goes to show that when you take account of trip advisor reports they should also include the writers age as most of them just dont know.
Being a family run hotel the family quite often took meals in the dining room and it was bad policy to show that they ate different and better food than they gave their guests.
