“Great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We just came back from our holiday in Zakynthos. We booked a double room at the Poseidon Beach hotel, but we were a bit disappointed with it. We have booked a room at upper floor with garden view, but they gave us one at the ground floor right next to the pool. There is no privacy there and it can get very loud, so we asked for another room. After another hour they put us in a room at the third floor, but with view at the entrance of the hotel and the street. Since we didn't want to change the room every day, we stayed in that room. Which was ok, except for the beds and the bathroom. They only have twin beds and our room had very bad mattresses. The bathroom was tiny and kind of dated.

The location of the hotel is great, the garden and the beach are very nice, the staff is nice too (you have to pay attention to the cleaners since the sheets and the towels are sometimes dirty), ok breakfast with eggs, ham, cheese, cereals, fruits and vegetable. We didn't pay for WiFi, all the bars and restaurants offer free WiFi in Laganas. The hotel organizes Greek evenings and other events by the pool, they were nice.

Just back from a stay at the poseidon hotel. Overall it's a really nice hotel, rooms are decent, pool is awesome and the walk to the beach is less then a minute. The staff are really friendly and the evening happy hour is great to start your night off.

We had a lovely room with a nice sea view a nice big bed and a balcony. Only slight thing with the rooms is the bathroom could do with updating a little and the tv signal is poor.

The hotel has wifi but it's charged at 20€ a week per device which we didn't go for as it's very steep and we found Facebook works anyway without a code.

The only let down with this hotel is the breakfast which I found to be woeful at best. The sausages and beans were stone cold and the tea is horrific. This might be the way they have it though.

Would definitely stay again, but go room only next time.

Another great holiday at the Poseidon Beach hotel from the location to the great food and the grounds/view. What makes this hotel is the people who work there who treat you like they have known you for years even on your first stay. Needless to stay, my next visit is already booked. For a great holiday with great people and great food in a great hotel do your self a favour and book this hotel.

Took this place for a 2 weeks honeymoon in sept, got the room on the 2nd floor, it was the 1st room on floor(321, 123 or sth like that), so we heard almost everyone speaking louder than average, but the hotel was fullfilled so we didnt notice few days after. Breakfasts average level, better go there 15 minutes to close, because it is really crowded! Some fruit, vegs like tomato and cucumber, almost no diary products.
Nice place, 10 minutes to village walk, clean beach, left everything near pool, cause every 5 meters closer to water cost more 2 or 3 €!
Stuff really nice, solving every tiny problem you have!
Free parking right opposite the entrance if you take a car or quadro, we used it!
Took dinners out, travelling the whole island!
If you travel not for sitting on the beach or at the hotel Poseidon is quite what you need for sleeping and having breakfast! Take a car and go! )))

Me and my wife ( 56 and 50yrs respectfuly) needed an early break in the middle of May to just relax and recharge the batteries, having never been the the Greek Isles we went for this hotel. later i was reading reviews of the Laganas area and soon became nervous about our choise of resort, however we decided to go by our initial instincts and boy!!! was it worth it. Being early season vey few of the night spots were open so we really enjoyed the area. The hotel rooms are basic, but we found them clean and neat, the maids were great and helped whenever they could. We only had two critisisms, one was that the bathroom door did not form a seal for noise, which was embarrasing at times! (especially at 6am when we heard a continental gent several doors down trying to clear the cheap cigarette tar from his lungs- on many days). The other critisism was about the pool ----it was freezingggg!!! I realise that it was early season but it did warm up towards the end of the week (i did get fed up with the wife saying as I got out of the pool '' Yes I can see that the water is cold!!'') The búffet breakfast was more than adequate with a mixture of hot and cold items (the tomatoes abroad allways taste of a really good tomato--why is that?). The owner of the hotel was present in the breakfast lounge most days and was very freindly.
Our room overlooked the strip of land being changed into the Beach Republic 24h party area (we will see) and although the wife was not too pleased with the outlook, I wanted to stay and I was glad we did, as it was most entertaining watching people working in the heat whilst I was relaxing with a cool drink. We are returning in September to see what impact this 'Yuf party area' has had on the very nice and relaxing area.
So to summise, a great hotel in a good area (or it was!!)
P.S Although we appear to be getting on in years I listen to Radio 1 at home and like to see people enjoying themselves (but not over the top)

Room Tip: unsure at the moment as a party are will have opened on the quietest side, the pool garden may be no...

When we arrived, staff were friendly and polite. They had overbooked ( this had happened to the other groups of teenagers in the hotel) so instead of 2 rooms of 2, we were given 1 room of 4, however they did give us free air con, garden sun beds, safe, week of unlimited wifi. So it actually saves us a lot of money and having one room we wanted originally anyway. I do believe they had the rooms we originally booked, but they wanted a group of teenagers together.
The rooms were very nice, bathroom a bit small, but you get used to it. All clean and tidy and impressed with the maids.
The whole hotel was spotless, for what we paid it was a bargain.
The food for breakfast was average, fried/boiled egg, toast, fruit, cereal, weird bacon, beans. Just what you would get anywhere. To us, breakfast the same everyday was fine ,as at home we have the same thing for breakfast everyday. Breakfast was between 8-10am.
Hotel is literally on the beach, you can get garden sunbeds which are just on some grass just behind the beach, so it was very nice!
Pool was good, big enough. we went in the sea more as it was just nicer and only like 20 footsteps away.
On day the bed slat had broken and within 30 minutes of reporting it, the problem had been fixed. Excellent customer care
Compared to some of the hotels we saw(for teens), this one is definitely one of the better ones.
Hotel is a family hotel, lots of nationalities and the staff speak very good English.
I would recommend this to anyone.
The strip is just a nice 10-15 min walk down the beach- goes very quickly as there's always someone to laugh at one the way back from a good night out to the hotel on the beach( doing it by road is longer ) Quiet at night.
Beds were ok, standard, but after a night out you just sleep straight away anyway and didn't take notice of the bed.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor overlooking the sea
