“Lovely Holiday 3.5 stars not 4”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We have just returned from two weeks (20th June-4th July) holiday at the Louis Zante Beach.
Having stayed at many 4 star Platinum hotels with Thomson, we felt this didn't live up to others we had stayed in to give it a Platinum rating. Agreed the view was beautiful, the food was repetitive after the first week, this could be improved by a two week turnaround on the menu. The rooms were a bit dated and could do with a revamp. Staff were always very pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. If you are planning to go to this hotel over the summer be prepared for extra charges, 3.50 euros per day for the safe (49 euros for two wks!!) and 20ft from the Poseidon bar off the grounds of the hotel you have to pay 8 euros a day for two beds and an umbrella on the beach (112 euros for two wks). The manager collected this daily from the Louis Zante Beach. So all inclusive is not actually all inclusive. Make sure you have an extra 160 euros to cover both of these extras on top of any spending money you wish to take, and as the entertainment isn't that good, even though the animation team do try, you will need to go out of the hotel in the evening. Ask the Thomson reps Seb and Emma about the 40-80 Bar Crawl, it is hilarious. Goes from the hotel every friday evening just after 7. Hire a car from the hotel, the views on the north east of the island are spectacular and untouched. Don't miss the Blue Caves. Hire car costs 65 euros for 2 days insurance and excess all included. Air conditioned cars.
Zakynthos is a beautiful island and would consider returning in the future but along the east coast and not to Louis Zante Beach im afraid.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your valuable feedback following a stay at the Louis Zante Beach.

We are glad to notice that you found the view really beautiful and our staff very friendly and helpful.
We are sorry to hear that some aspects of the holiday did not meet your expectations, especially regarding some additional charges which are mentioned in the brochures. We have opted out of including the safe charge in the room rate in order to avoid raising prices for everybody. As for the sunbeds by the beach, they are charged extra due to the fact that this is an environmentally protected area. As for the food having a weekly rotation, it is also a conscious decision on our part to ensure an excellent quality.

We hope that despite these negatives you will still grace Louis Hotels with a future visit; perhaps our Louis Ledra in Cyprus would be more suited to your expectations.

Best regards,

The Management

1) Food choice and quality were excellent at every meal and vegetarians were looked after very well indeed
2) Orange juice was of poor quality and beer tolerable!

The only criticism we had was that there was no free WiFi or internet use

The staff were extremely pleasant and really couldn't do enough for us

On the whole we would give 4.5/5- what you get is what you see on their website

Our return flight was in the evening and after checking out at midday we were free to use all the facilities and were provided with a courtesy room for showering and changing before the coach picked us up for the short journey to the airport(10-15 mins)

The reps were good and there was no 'pushing' of any excursions

Room Tip: We were in room 517 and seemed fine for access to the beach/pool/dining rooms

Just come back recently after staying at Louis Zante Beach (4th - 11th July) first holiday just the two of us in 17 years, looking for some real relaxation time and was not disappointed. We had asked for 2nd floor accommodation with a sea view and was exactly what we had (room 247), really clean accommodation cleaned daily. We stayed on the beach most days as it was beautiful setting and was really pleasant with the gentle breeze, thought 8 euros for the day for 2 loungers and parasol wasn't too bad. Food was really clean and so were the eating areas, we really enjoyed eating lunch at the beach bar. Hope to definitely come back again

My family and I was so excited to be returning to Louis Zante Beach - we expected to have a fantastic time and I pleased to report we wasn't disappointed!!! Another 5* trip thank you!

From the moment we stepped of the bus we was welcomed by Katerina and her team - her warm welcoming smile was so lovely and genuine and she looked after us for the whole holiday - helping us to celebrate our wedding anniversary and also kept the children happy with a lollipop and turtle!!

The animation team this year where first class - Dani and his team where absolutely fabulous there limitless energy and enthusiasm was superb and they made my 7 year olds holiday - he wanted to stay and be part of the team!! Thank you Dani, Raul and Christina so much !

Food again was brilliant so much choice and the dining staff where so attentive - the love they showed for Yasmin was great - they made her smile every meal time - Rezi you are missed !!!

Tina thank you for your cocktails at the main bar - and Makis you will make a barman of Antonis by the end of the season.

All the staff and cleaning staff too thank you for making this a great holiday for all - we really do hope to return very soon!!!!

I stayed for a week at the end of June / beginning July 2014 with my wife, son and my in laws.We first visited this hotel 10 years ago with a close friend who has since passed away, therefore this hotel held special memories for us all. It's was also my sons 16th birthday and he still had vague memories of his time there which we all loved. We had two apartments on the beech, room 406 / 408. These rooms have beautiful views overlooking the gardens onto the beech and sea. (Thank you to the kind management for their wonderful gesture). To be honest the hotel layout hasn't changed.
The main restaurant sits in the grounds behind the beech apartments and is divided equally between indoors and covered outdoors. This restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We always choose to sit outside and enjoy the warm climate.
The food is excellent, I've been to at least 20 all inclusive resorts in eight countries and the food here is right up there with the best. The wine, beer & spirits are all of a decent standard but very in tune with most over all inclusive resorts.
The hotel has a beech bar/restaurant on the beech serving late breakfast, snacks etc however we always opted for the main restaurant.
In the evening before you have dinner have a drink on the patio overlooking the gardens, swimming pool and beautiful views of the island.
The staff were all really helpful.
Day / evening time entertainment was provided by the animation team. If you've been to any all in before they're pretty much the same however, this team is lead by a chap called Daniel a Romanian with an impressive dance background and leads a team of youngsters that can certainly perform. If you like Zumba etc then make sure you bring your trainers, my wife did the morning and afternoon sessions and was really impression with the energy and standard.
There's also a gym overlooking the pool which is adequate and ok if you fancy a run.

Any moans?? not really the only thing I would say is the gardens between the pool and the beech as in poor condition and really need an overhaul. The beer should be on open tap like most over all inclusives. But that's about it.
Would I go back.... yes absolutely!

Oh just a couple of tips, you must hire a car and see the island there's some amazing scenery.
Book the car hire with Eurocars in the hotel itself, it's slightly more expensive but there's no excess unlike most other companies.

The must see the loggerhead turtles, the best time to go is July early August. There are boat trips but we hired a pedalo twice and saw more then 4 turtles on each trip.You didn't need to venture out to far either. Me and my son dived in and swam with them for a while, it was truly an amazing experience. Just don't get to close and avoid swimming behind them. Oh and pick up any litter on the beech especially plastic and the turtles mistake it for jellyfish their favorite food.
The turtles lay their eggs all over the beech which is patrolled by wardens.

Well that's it have a great holiday.

We really enjoyed our holiday at the Louis Zante beach. Having had a wonderful time there last year, we were hoping that the standards were going to be consistent and they were. The food was very good with a great variety of dishes on offer and the Asian restaurant was superb. The entertainment team were fantastic - we have never seen a team work so hard. Well done Dani, Raul. Christina and John and a special mention to Dorina who was excellent with the teenager group. Seeing the turtles was very special - we hired a pedalo for 15 euros for one hour. Our rooms were in the main hotel and were exceptionally clean. Our cleaner worked so hard and was so pleasant that the housekeeping staff deserve a special mention. The hotel is spotless as is the swimming pool and general areas. The bar staff were friendly as were the Thomson reps. A big thank you to everyone for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Request a sea view room. Garden rooms near the pool bar would be noisy for families with young chil...

My partner and I have just returned from an amaxing holiday at a hotel where we felt completely looked after on every level. The room we had in the main block was comfortable, spotless, lovely sea view, quiet and had lots of storage space. The hotel food was exceptional and themed evenings and fantastic choice made it interesting and gives opportunity to try different dishes. A low counter is provided to enable children to serve themselves. Every member off staff we spoke to was happy, polite, helpful, efficient and could not have done more to make us feel welcome and relaxed. The beach is beautiful and the sea crystal clear and clean. Turtles lay their eggs on this beach and it is closed at 7.00pm each night to ensure nature gets its best chance to reproduce without disturbance. We explored much of the island by hire car and a packed lunch was provided for the days we went exploring. We would highly recommend this hotel to couples of all ages and families and would not hesitate to book another holiday at this wonderful and very special hotel.
