Reviewed 10 June 2014

stayed here with my family last week. Supposed to be self catering, good luck.......amenities were very poor and unusable. Bathroom was filthy, 3rd bed is located in the kitchen right outside the toilet. 25 minutes walk to the strip (beach), Very disappointing.

Went as a group of 6 lads, everyone was amazing, met some great people there both workers and holiday makers. Hotel staff were decent. Perfect place for a lads or ladies holiday, strip is a 10 minute walk but it's in a straight line and when you're steaming it doesn't matter anyway. Will be back!

We stayed in this hotel in 2010 for 2 weeks and it was brilliant. It was our first time in Zante and we couldn't have stayed in a friendlier and livelier hotel. The staff behind the bar were great and recommended all the good places to go. The karaoke/bbq nights were incredible with free drinks for the whole night. As a group of 12 I can safely say that all of us loved this place and were definitely sad when we had to leave and return home. Our rooms were always cleaned and there was never any trouble. I wouldn't recommend families going but for young people it's perfect.

as two young girls we came to zante for a party holiday and that's what we got. whenever you go on this sort of holiday to a resort you cannot expect 5 star luxury and it's not what you pay for. we were so happy we ended up at paradise after walking into the travel agents just asking for a cheap sunny holiday in the next couple of weeks. the cocktails at the bar were super strong, the food you could get from the bar was yummy (chicken burger especially!) and the reception staff were great too. because we went near the end of the season it was a bit quieter at the hotel which was good for us because we could just lounge by the pool and recover from our hangovers all day! so many fantastic and CHEAP restaurants along the strip and so many drinks deals - don't be afraid to say no to the PR guys though (although they may pick you up..)
the hotel is at least a 10 minute walk from the first bar but if you are drunk and with a group of people it doesn't seem so long. taxi home from the top of the strip is around 5 euro so not bad.
best bit about the hotel is the restaurant at the front of it - you get discount there if you're staying at the hotel and the waiters are LOVELY. so kind and genuinely couldn't do enough for you - we ate there 3 times in the week. the food was fantastic too.
100% recommend paradise if this is the type of holiday you want :)

These apartments are a little further out but only about a 10 minute or so walk from the main strip - really not far especially if you're marching down a group of you from the hotel in the evening to party, it's about a 20 minute walk to the beach which is at the end of the strip. Lots of nightlife, a great place for youngsters! The hotel is fairly basic but we (a friend & I) were more than happy here for the week, you get what you pay for at the end of the day & we got a really good price so wasn't expecting pure luxury! Always plenty of sun loungers round the pool (which is also very clean), partly because most people have had such a late night that no-one materialises till midday ... at least! The food round the bar was good, snack foods, cocktails & soft drinks - no complaints. There is a little shop just over the road & up a bit, this has enough supplies or a bit further towards the strip is a little supermarket where we went & stocked up. We ate in a few lunch times & sat on our balcony, did this a few nights before going out too, keeps costs down!
Would recommend Paradise Apartments for youngsters & as a base!

Room Tip: We were on a higher floor, advisable if you don't want people coming home at all hours & ban...

Stayed as part of a group of 7 18 year old lads in July 2012. This hotel is not worth bothering over.
First of all upon arrival we were offered to change from 3 rooms of 2/3 to the 'Pool house' which was intended for 8 people. We agreed as the idea of the 'pool house' sounded rather exciting. Talk about false advertising...
Essentially the pool house was 2 adjacent rooms for 2 people with an extra bunk bed squeezed into both. The only thing that actually separated this from the other rooms was that the 'pool house' had a double balcony with an extra bit as well. Had the weather not been as hot as it was this could actually have been a redeeming feature of the 'pool house' however the extra segment of this balcony was constantly in the sun and therefore unuseable until the night time anyway (the metal chairs didn't help here either).
Also, the light didn't work in our sorry excuse for a bathroom, meaning showering with the door open, never a good idea in a group of rowdy teenagers.

In terms of proximity to the strip, technically this hotel is on the strip. What no one tells you is just how long the strip is. Be prepared to walk ten minutes before you reach the first bar (which if memory serves was terrible, never went back after the first time) and then another 20 before you start to reach the main collection of bars etc. this may not sound so bad at night, but just think if by some miracle you end up spending the night in a different hotel, the walk back in the morning in that heat is horrendous. Half an hour in the blistering heat, likely with a hangover. Doesn't sound appealing does it?

However my main issue with this hotel was the 'security guard'/gardener/occasional bar man/general miserable moron. This guy was overly aggressive, constantly had a face on him and really needs to get a grip. He seemed to have an issue with the noise made by us and other guests, which considering the hotels location in lively Zante, I find absurd. We even went in the pool one night (which okay perhaps that was a bad idea), but rather than ask or even demand that we get out, he volleyed one of the lads on the back as he was getting out.
That being said, the rest of the staff were brilliant; really friendly and easy to get along with, also made the effort to try and converse with the guests. In my opinion the other staff were the only good point of the whole hotel.

My advice to anyone reading this, look elsewhere if you're set on Zante!

Myself and a group of friends decided to visit Zante/Zakynthos for the notorious nightlife, exceptional weather and golden beaches. We booked a reasonably cheap holiday costing around 450 for hotel plus flights. The hotel we were staying at was the Paradise apartments which was located in the local slum of Laganas. Due to the location of the apartments there was evening entertainment every night, normally it was two romanian boys playing football with a sphere like rock.
Despite the location the staff were reasonably pleasant until one night we got home and the security guard asked one of my friends for 'spare change'. We gave him a couple of euros as we were intoxicated and had no clue what we were doing. With the spare change he then went to the local takeaway. Im not sure weather Paradise apartments actually pay their staff but it was a very surreal experience. The woman at the desk was very quiet, we struggled to communicate with her and later found out she is a mute meaning she couldn't produce a vocal sound.
As the week went by we made friends at the hotel and even ended up with a few Hornets in our room thanks to the nest situated on our balcony. They caused us no harm but became clingy as the days went by.
Overall the Apartments are bog standard and if your not looking for a good night sleep, nice people, air conditioned rooms, a good location. I would say its your type of place. Im glad I stayed at Paradise Apartments though, just to say i've stayed in the worst hotel in Europe.
