Second holiday in Zante, last year my boyfriend and i stayed in the Poseidon Beach Hotel which is very clean and has a fantastic location on the beach, it is perfect for couples. This year we decided to go for a bigger and more lively hotel as we were going with a group of ten other 18/19 year olds. We booked the Alexander Hotel through Thomas Cook for £340 and it was well worth the money. The rooms, although small, are kept very clean and each have a balcony and fantastic air conditioning ( at a small charge). The hotel has three swimming pools, two of which are very big. The pool area is spacious and clean and their is a great pool bar serving cheap food and drinks. There are staff on hand 24 hours a day, most of whom are helpful but the security guard is v aggresive and v unhelpful. Laganas itself is very lively with some fantastic bars and clubs. Highly recommend Rescue and cocktails and dreams. Warning: do not walk down the beach alone at night!
I would also definitly recommend the 8 hour boat trip around the island, it is spectacular.
Another day trip i would recommend is a trip to St Nicholas Beach. There is a coach that leaves laganas every morning at 10 and takes you to this beautiful beach, the coach returns at 5. At St Nicholas beach their are every kind of water sport you can think of (although it is pricey).
A walk down to Cameo Island is also definitly worth while we only wish we'd found this spot earlier. Lovely little beach and bar playing very chilled out music.
I would not take a family to laganas, especially not the Alexander as it is noisey and full of oyuths, but for young couples and groups it is the perfect destination. You will have a awesome holiday.
