“Couldn't fault it”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

I stayed at the Bozikis in July 2011 and there is not a bad word I could say about it. It was clean, tidy and had a great atmosphere. Only negative was the security guard but that was only on one occasion when some friends who weren't staying in the hotel where in our room and he came in and told us we were making too much noise and if we didn't be quiet 'he would slap them out' but we just found it funny.

Hotel is a 5 minute walk from the strip if that just down one straight road so its impossible to get lost. Never any problems getting sunbeds no matter what time you got up, rooms were spactious and plenty for room for 3 people in one room.

If I ever returned to zante I would definitely stay here again.

on arrival at bozikis in august 2011 the receptionist was very unhelpfull and rude , as we arrived in the early hours our rep wasent there to greet us but she came in the morning and she was fab , told us all the trips that was avaliable ect...
Our rooms wer very basic wich was expected but it was a room for 4 and we only had cutterly for 2 , our hob wasent working so we couldent cook our pasta or anything the frezzer had that much ice in it you couldnt even fit a bottle of water in and i wouldnt say the fridge was cold. The shower (if you can call in that) was a square in the floor with a shower head that had to be held, the bathroom door couldent be shut as it would get stuck closed untill a mem of staff could be botherd to un jamm it. There was ants constantly in the rooms and lots of wasps also.
The securitey guard was an absolute nightmare , he was a judgemental arragent intimidating rude vile man , he would make you turn your music off at 1am even though is was an 18-30 hotel (this was very unreasonable compared to other hotels) me and a friend wasnt aloud to stay in our appartment on 2 occasions for been 'to loud' (he was also to one of us and brought her to tears) and had to find somewer else to stay wich is hurrendus as we was causing no trouble jus genrally haveing a good time! Our rep was so annoyed when she found out this and told him to back off. On our departure date we paid to keep the room on as we had early morning pick up at 5am he came in to our room with a key uninvited whilst we was sleeping and started clapping his hands saying get out the room needs cleaning?? what at 1.30am .. dont think so! So eneway we got out belongings and went to reception wer we had to sit for 2.30 hours untill the coach came.. He said that we had damaged the room , we new we hadent and what he was saying was damaged was like that before , but thankfully another member of staff told him it was there before so he gave our passports back in a temper. Awfull man .. Hated him!
The pool area is decent and the music played is spot on (can get repetative) The food served is not value for money , especially when you can go down the road and get a starter,main and free bar for 10 euros!

Zante is and AMAZING place and we are returning this year but to a different hotel obviously.. the strip is buzzing and the atmorphere is wicked .. WE LOVE ZANTE!!!!

Altough my three friends and I enjoyed out week in Zante alot the the Bozikis Apartments were a huge let down. The strip and clubbing part of the holiday was amazing and the walk is a good distance and down a long strip of good priced restaurants- If your a group of pretty girls they always give you free drinks ect!

The rooms were fine, we had one room for the four of us with two bed rooms. The shower was TINY but clean but you had to hold it and put it on and off every 5 minutes. The supplies were limited- Cutlery for 3? Even though it was a 4 room? Kettle, Hob and sink.

The bar staff and general service of the Bozikis/Vivian is UTTER crap, they are grumpy and very rude so say the least. We didn't care though, we only ate down in the bar once or twice for quickness or just pure laziness for a quick but very satisfactory snack/meal.

The pool was very quiet in comparison to other pools around Zante (this could be good as you can just chill in the day) which we were not expecting- we booked a club 18 to 30 holiday and got no such thing. We found out all the planned events for nights out and got advice from friend who were staying at another hotel. The music around the pool was good and up to date with the current songs for when we went.

The beach and main strip is about a 15 to 20 minute walk away but if your lazy like we were you can get a cheap taxi back in the evening for about 6 euros. OR you can rent out Quad Bikes (amazing!) for 25 euros a day.

I would still recommend this hotel as you are just getting ready and sleeping in it. Comfort is not a neccessity on this type of holiday!

Clubs to visit- Cocktails and dreams, Aussies and Insomnia just to name a few :-)
Zante is an awesome place to for especially for a first girly or clubbing holiday like me and my friends did. I could have stayed for an extra week if we were somewhere a little more comfortable.

My boyfriend and I came to this hotel so the hotel itself and Laganas in general was quite quiet by this time. We had both been to Laganas before and knew it was a very 18-30s sort of place. However the Bozikis apartments we found to be very dirty and below the standard I would even expect to find in a budget 18-30s hotel.
The room did not look like it had been cleaned thoroughly before we arrived, the floor was very dirty. The bedding had cigarettes burns amongst all sorts of other dirty marks. The self catering facilities were very poor though this didnt matter too much as we were planning to eat out. The fridge was small, with a tiny freezer section on the top. The ice in this freezer section was a horrible yellow colour and even the inside of the fridge was dirty.
We arrived at the hotel at about 7:30am to be told that the welcome meeting would be at 9am. As we had been to Laganas before and knew that we did not want to go on any trips we said that we did not want to come to the welcome meeting. This did not stop the reps from hammering on our door at 9am in the morning trying to make us go.
The pool area of the hotel is fine, plenty of sun loungers and a decent sized pool. The pool bar does some very nice and cheap food and good full English breakfasts.
The hotel is also in a great location, only about a 10 minute walk to the main strip but it is in a quieter location so you can get a good night sleep. It is also only about a 20 minute walk to the beach.
If you were really on a budget and wanted just any hotel so you can have a fun week in Laganas then this hotel may be for you. But if you are a bit more picky about where you stay then I would give this hotel a miss as there are some lovely apartments that are available in Laganas for only a little bit more money such as the Zante Atlantis which I would highly recommend.

My 3 friends and I stayed in the Bozikis Apartments on the 30th July 2009 for two weeks. We stayed in room 29 on the ground floor, which opens up onto the front of the pool on the same side as the pool bar.
Seen as the hotel is a 3*, the apartment was very basic but included all the main essentials needed for our holiday. The maid service in the hotel was good, as our room was cleaned every other day and new sheets and towels were also brought regularly. The pool bar staff and the reps Jack and Claire were also very helpful and friendly.
If you are hoping for a good night’s sleep, it may be in your best interest to shut both doors which open up onto the pool, as shutting just one does not make much difference, and as there is always someone coming back to the hotel in the early hours of the morning, they are bound to wake you up. However, by shutting both doors could make your room get too hot. Therefore, air conditioning could be a solution to this which costs €50 per week. Although, my friends and I did not buy air conditioning as we didn’t feel it was too hot to sleep on a night. The only problem we had with our room was the ants. So, if you don’t want to get bitten, it may be a good idea to take some form of insect killer with you.
The 18-30s excursions were really good and I would recommend booking these with your reps, especially ‘We Love Tuesdays’, ‘Neon Nights’ and the ‘Booze Cruise’. If you want to try some water sports, the only way you can do this is by going on the booze cruise as this takes you to St Nicholas Beach. The beach at the end of the strip does not allow water sports as it is now home to the Caretta turtles.
The nightlife strip is a good 10 minute walk away from the Bozikis hotel. However, there are lots of bars along the way down there which is good if you fancy a drink. The atmosphere down the strip is really lively and there are many great bars and clubs such as Zeros, Waikiki, Cherry Bay, Rescues, Pink Panther, Plus and more.
It is not uncommon to get hassled down the strip by both bar staff and gypsies. Ignore them and watch your bags!!
Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend staying at the Bozikis Apartments in Zante as you’ll never be bored around the pool and the staff members and reps are awesome!

I have just gotten back from staying at the Bozikis in Laganas. My friend and I stayed in Room 4, on the ground floor near reception.
It was hard for us to sleep before midnight because of the kareoke we could hear everynight. We were often woken by people coming in late.
We thought that the room was acceptable, clean and tidy, which is all we wanted really. the walls in the hotel seem to be incredibly thin as we could hear the people both above and opposite our room having sex at all times of the night. The pool was a good size, and fairly clean.
This hotel is acceptable as we only wanted somewhere to sleep.
The food from the bar is below standard. I ordered some chips and i was not told when they were ready so they were cold by the time i had them. I also ordered some french toast, which was only half cooked and i left most of it.
We booked our holiday with 18 - 30, and we decided not to pay the extra for the transfer to and from the airport. This means that we were waiting for the hotel rep to come to the hotel for almost an hour. This counted as an early check in and so this meant that we had to check out early on our last day, even though our flight wasn't until 7am the next morning.
The reps were hard to get hold of as they were hardly in reception. This was annoying, as we wanted to get extra sheets several times during our stay because it was cold at night, and because we couldnt get hold of the reps, it meant we had to be cold at night and sleep in our autumn clothes.
