“DO NOT go here pure and simple!”
Reviewed 1 September 2008

not alot to say bout this place apart if ur going to laganas do not go to this hotel the owner is an absolute idiot! the accomadation is terrible. i mean u wldnt expect alot from a 2 star but this is 1 star just becos it has a good pool in my view. the strip 30 mins away. the apartments are falling apart and if something breaks the stupid men and owners will blame it on u and try and get u to pay for it.
BUT laganas if amazing for clubs rescues was awesome g-spot amazing beach great perfect for lads holiday and girls holiday ....
just believe me choose a different hotel and not this one!

  • Liked — the pool was good

I have just returned from a 7 night stay in this poor excuse for a hotel... So many things wrong.

1. Hotel does not look like what we were promised in the travel agency.

2. The manager is a wierdo!... No Joke! - He kept asking about a pair of greek girls that were hanging around with us, and when he asked them who they were going out with in the evening, they said the english lads. And with a quick reply he snubed them.
The guy also tried to tickle my feet!!! - Odd.

3. Lots of wasps around the pool.

4. You have to pay for air con, minimum of 3 nights, this will not be included in the price. 7 euros a day - Also the cleaner will turn it off and leave the door on the balcony open. Dennis will also come and take the remote once the aircon runs up. He will not ask you if you would like to extend it.

5. Food was not fresh and half a beer is 3 euros, thats right 3 EUROS!.

6. Towels and sheets were not cleaned at all.

7. The night life is about a 30 minute trek in to town.

8. The shop is a good 10-15 minute trek.

9. The shower was broken, and had no curtain so water would go everywhere.

10. The rooms in general were falling to pieces and my brother had to sleep on a converted chair... You pay 400 quid for a converted chair?? hmmm...

11. If they tell you it has a kitchen, forget it!

Basically to sum it up. Avoid at all costs.

1 good thing, it was quiet in the evening.

Where to begin - arrived at Zante airport where all the coaches were lined up, to then find we were basicaslly getting in to a van, we were in stitches, you have got to laugh!! We then got to Laganas and had to go past a field with cows in it, over a little bridge, then drive through a dirt track and found Thalia apartments.

The apartments were very clean, nice pool and pleasant staff, especially Mary who worked at the pool side bar. Thalia is what you make it, no good for families or older couples. we were a group of girls who liked to lie by the pool during the day, have drinks and enjoy the nightlife. No entertainment at the apartments but why would you need any when the nightlife is down the road. it was about a 30-35min walk to the main strip so we got taxi's most nights which was about 6-8euros.

Overall we had a great 2 weeks there, no complaints at all, one thing i will say is we did tend to get a few frogs coming in and out of the bathroom, or sometimes moths haha but just keep the window shut, toilet seat down and also plugs in the sink haha.

  • Liked — Great for a girls or lads holiday
  • Disliked — a bit out of the way from nightlife, but i suppose you get a good night sleep!!

We have just returned from what must be the worst holiday of our lives. Whilst staying at Thalia, we were 1 of 7 apartments which had property stolen, with no evidence of forced entry! The owner had no interest in helping our situation, (you have to ask yourself if indeed he was involved in the theft?),and as a result we demaded a free transfer away from Thalia, and Laganas. (all occupied apartments were transferred to Hotel Marelen, Kalimaki FOC).

The apartments, although fairly roomy are rarely cleaned - the towels are changed once a week if you're lucky, and the location is useless. If you are a family considering booking here, forget it! Although the brochure shows a childrens play area near the pool, this is in a state of disrepair, and the majority of people booking here are aged between 18 - 30. We were lucky, in as much as the younger crowd who were there during our stay were very considerate, but I would never take a chance on this place again! If you are booking to go to Zante, I can highly recommend Hotel Marelen, Kalimaki - it's approx. the same distance from the centre of Laganas as Thalia is!
