“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

My partner, daughter and myself have just returned from this hotel or maybe I should describe it as a youth hostel. I have stayed here before and was under no illusion as to what sort of hotel it was (described as LIVELY in the brochure). The first week was as expected quite noisy with lots of drunken youths, but nothing prepared us for the shock of the second week. The hotel became over run with approx 400 Slovakian students. They made the British youngsters look tame. They were rude noisy and arrogant, and their co-ordinators were worse. From 2.30 in the morning till 6am they stampeded up and down the corridors shouting and screaming banging on doors, and playing football. When we complained we were asked what we expected them to do. We book half board but would say don't bother evening meals were chosen from the pool bar menu and as they have no chef don't waste your money. Thomas Cook who we booked with were well aware that the students would be there this year as they were last year but didn't bother to warn us. Our holiday was completely ruined by lack of information, and the staff of the hotel being unhelpful which is upsetting as I have previously had good holidays here.

stayed for a week and this hotel is very close too the banging night life, good clubs down the strip, some staying open from 12am to 8am (cherry bay) and sum ok food outlets inc KFC, MC D'S and SUBWAY. all the gift shops sell mostly the same things so once you've seen one.....but two or three are different with handmade gifts for hippys and red indians, lol. The hotel food was ok if your not fussy, but the pizzas are crap! WATCH OUT!- as you have to pay for the aircon!!!! 45euros and 20 for the safe! as other hotels you will find these are inc. or just a diposit req. and the drains smell so keep the bathroom door closed! BUT ON THE PLUS SIDE; the pool is cool, not too cold and cleaned/maintained everyday as you will see the monitor checking the bleach with sum sort of PH paper and inspecting the pumps and cleaning the pool every night. we whent half board but the breaky is literally continental with cerial, ham, cheese, bread and o.j. so for us was brought at the cafe's all at around 5 euros for full english. and dinner is from a menu made to order by the pool from 5-7pm. TO SUMMERISE; if your a party animal and want a roof over your head at night, not fussy with your food and a good pool for cooling off then this is the resort/hotel for you. P.S the little shop onsite sells 2ltr bottles of ice cold water for 1 euro!! but on a down side you cant bring food and drink from other shops into the hotel, but if you sly they dont notice. just dont bring in a sundy roast and a create of stella! if you know what i mean. hope this review was helpfull and i defo recomend going to see the shipwreck and blue caves with a dip in the lovley warm clear sea! dont forget you snorkals!

This hotel was absolutely banging! Ignore the bad reviews caus we were well nervous coming here reading them but it was all payed to rest when we got there! Everything was amazing! The food was wellll tasty! The staff were well friendly and safe and very generous ! Our first night we got absoultly smashed on 2 euros 50 in the bar down stairs! The location is wicked perfect for the beach with this dirt track we found taking us 5 mins away and strip being 15 mins away leaving a brilliant pub crawl route for us getting up there! The drinks are also alot stronger towards our end so when u get to the strip when drinks are watered down you are already fueled ready. Also a note to have is when all the different Pr's try getting u in with the same deal in every bar , bartar with them! You can get what ever u want if u seem uninterested!
The only thing i could say on a negative note is the maids didnt clean our room the last two days....not sure why? and yeah that bloody security guard!! but yaeh if u want someone to come back with u ....always go in separetly on ur own and meet eachother upstairs in the corridor! It worked a treat for me!
I would DEF comebck again! <3

Close to the 'Strip' and after our third day found a quick way to the beach whice took no longer than 5 minutes walk, 15 if your going the longer way. Rooms were clean and good size nice view of the Pool. Would deffinately pay abit more to stop here if i ever return to Zante, Not that it's a bad place, It's more of a been there done that place. Also Staff were friendly and polite with a rep pretty much most of the time on site. Fully Reccomend.

spent 2 weeks here and had a fab time. Met some great people. Service was excellent. The only down side was the food but considering the clientel it was what it was! We were half board and it could have been better. I would recommend the hotel though to all party people.
