“Fab all round”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Ionis the last week in May and we weren't disappointed.
We had a few issues but these were, by no means the fault of the hotel or staff and the staff did everything possible to help with the issues.
The hotel is in a fab location right on the main strip close all amenities. No noise can be heard in the hotel from the road outside or neighbouring businesses. The rooms were lovely and cleaned on a daily basis. The rooms included a tv with ipod dock and dvd player which is a good idea for those nights you stay in, esp if you get sunburnt lol. Take your own dvds with you as there is nowhere to buy them over there.
Breakfast is in the pool bar dining room and may only be continental but there is a wide selection of foods and drinks.
Cannot fault anything about the hotel
Minnie is a wee darling and the rest of the staff are great too. I'd like to thank them all for helping to make our holiday special.

I would definitely return to the Ionis and recommend it to everyone.

The location of the hotel is perfect, 15 mins away from the airport, literally on the main strip of bars and the beach a 2 min walk away.
On arrival at the hotel you're asked to pay €30 per person deposit and to complete a form to ensure that any existing damage is noted so you can't be blamed, if the room is unchanged your deposit is returned! There is also the option of a late check out which is €15 per person as the check out time is 9AM.
The room we stayed in was nice and clean and each room had a docking station (only for iPhone 4 though!). We were told that the bedding and towels would be changed twice a week however if you respect the room the respect you and ours were done at least half a dozen times over the fortnight!
The hotel staff were lovely and Minnie at the pool bar lightened the hungover days! The reps Emma and Tom were good too and always around if you needed them!
There are lots of things to do of you're not too hungover such as the water park and boat trips to turtle island but I would say that a visit to banana beach is a must! A bus takes you for free and there's a €6 fee for a sun lounger when there but its a lovely beach and a nice chilled day for sun bathing!
Overall surprising for a 2wentys hotel and would recommend this hotel for anyone going to Zante!

Stayed at this hotel for a week with 6 other of my girls.
Was SO happy with everything with this hotel. Best location ever, not too far from airport - right at the center of the strip (but noise was never a problem) and a 2 min walk from the beach :)
LOVED the bar staff Minnie and Zack they made a day by the pool so much more fun!
Adones and Nicos the night time security men were the friendliest biggest friendly giants you could ever meet and they made us feel very comfortable and safe!
Rooms were incredibly clean and breakfast was perfect!
All in all I was very pleased with my stay.
HOWEVER was VERY VERY dissapointed when I was charged £22 euros for a phonecall made off the hotel's room-phone to home. Was a short phonecall no longer than 3 minutes which was proved on the receipt as a friend made a phonecall 4 minutes after mine. Hotel persisted that it was 10 minutes even though it was impossible. When the receptionist was confronted the situation was dealt with very badly with no explination and was told that "the computer never lies" when truly it shows the computer is a big fat liar! Very dissapointed as they more or less made up a nice amount that they fancied to steal off me

Stayed here from the 10th to the 17th of June on a girls holiday with 6 other girls and we had the best time! The hotel is perfect and very nice! We didnt expect much as we did not pay much and it was a 2wentys hotel but it was brilliant!

Rooms - rooms were very nice and spacious, i was in a twin room with a friend. Our shower would not hook on to the top and the bed was uncomfortable but otherwise it was lovely. Our balcony faced the strip and we loved to people watch every night after coming home! There was a hairdryer in the bathroom along with essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bottle opener, nail file, shoe polish etc. The rooms were cleaned every day by the maids and towels changed. We could phone other rooms which was really handy as 3 of our group were on another floor. The ipod dock was a brilliant idea it came in very handy when we were pre drinking and when you were walking through the coridors you could feel the party atmosphere as everyone had music. Although the hotel is on the strip and our room faced it we couldnt hear anything during the night so it must be soundproof which is perfect

Breakfast - We woke up for breakfast a few times. It was ok nothing fancy but did the job. It contained toast with a variety of jams, bread rolls, ham, cheese, salami, fruit, croissant, banana bread, tea's, cofffee and orange juice. Only downfall was that it finished at 10 and this very early when your out till the early hours.

Pool area - the pool was lovely and always clean - there were always enough sunbeds for us all and it caught sun all through the day. There was music all day which was good.

Bar - the bar was lovely and so were the bar people - Minnie and Zak were nice and always came around the pool to say hello - they had a large variety of drinks and they served snacks throughout the day.

Reception - Reception staff were lovely and you had to leave your key with them everytime you went out which was very handy and prevented you from loosing them and being stuck! You had to pay a $30 deposit and fill in a form when checking in and we had no problems and got our deposit back. We paid to keep our room on the last day until 7pm which was very handy as check out was 9am and our flight wasnt until 9pm. It was £15 per person - but we only kept one room so we paid £30 between 7 which wasnt bad! The only problem we had with the reception staff was that one of our friends phoned home from the room phone and the reception charged her $22 for 10 minutes. She only realised on our last day that the invoice did not make sense and she was actualy only on the phone for 3 minutes - the staff and owners refused to acknoledge the mistake and would not explain. Otherwise no problems with the staf.. The security guards Adinos and Nickos were in the reception from 12 until 8am and they were lovely!! always up for a chat when we came back from our nights out and kept us entertained. They were so friendly but also very cautious and kept the hotel safe!

Location - well it is in the PERFECT location you coulnt ask for better! the hotel is RIGHT on the strip. You walkes out and you had pizza house, chicken house, mcdonalds and subway right on your doorstep. With the big club waikkiki and cherry bay to your right. The beach is a 2 minute walk. Perfect location.

Our reps were Emma and Tom and they were very helpful and really nice!!

If going to zante i would definetly recommend the white party which is on its own island and the boat party. Would not recoment the full moon party we paid £35 and it was on a tiny patch of beach not worth the money!!

If you want a wild holiday but with a nice hotel i would definetly recommend this place and would return again!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the strip are good so you can see whats going on!

Just got back from Zante after a week with the girls and would definitely go again! The hotel is the perfect location from the airport (only 15min travel) and on the strip of pubs/clubs (But surprisingly not too loud and easy enough to get to sleep) and right next to the beach!
When we arrived, we were placed in a room on the bottom floor next to the entrance to the hotel, and although the room was very nice, it was quite noisy at early hours of the morning which made sleep difficult after a long day of travelling. However, after asking if it would be possible to change, the staff were so understanding and lovely and we were moved the next day to a bigger room on the second floor with an amazing view!
I've never been anywhere where the staff and people are all so nice and they definitely make me want to go back! Was emotional saying goodbye to the amazing bar staff who make the biggest effort to get to know you!
Great value for money, definitely would not be disappointed.

I stayed here with my two best friends in the first week of June and it was by far the best week of my life! Emma and Tom were brilliant and made it such a fab experience. Didn't expect the hotel to actually be as nice as it was considering it is a 2wenty's hotel but it was gorgeous, our beds were not comfy :( but when you come home pissed it really doesn't matter. Major downside to our holiday was that the staff on the reception parped around that long giving us our deposit back, even though our room was fine and we were checked out on time, that our transfer coach left without us causing a major panic but luckily there was another coach passing which we managed to jump on. The staff on reception weren't helpful at all and just told us to phone a taxi! Apart from that it was brilliant and two of us are even booking to go back in August for another week

Massive thanks to Emma & Tom - love you guys xxx

I stayed in the Ionis for the second time from 3rd June 2014 for 1 week with a friend. Having been to this hotel last year I knew that I was going to enjoy my stay. A big part of me returning to Zante was because of this hotel. What can I say, it was even better second time round. Everything from your arrival right up until your leaving is made fantastic by all the staff. They can not do enough to help you and it was so lovely that some of them recognised us from last year including the owner! Brilliant customer service. Big shout out to Zak, the best barman in Zante. Hope to see you again soon. One thing I will say though is that you need to pay for the air conditioning, fridge and safety deposit box working out at €70 for the week. We didn't pay for it last year as we thought it was quite expensive but the room gets far too hot when getting ready for a night out so we decided to pay for it this year. The fridge and safety box were great but I found that the air conditioning didn't make a massive difference to the temperature in the room and I was still too hot trying to get ready. So not worth the money I would say. Apart from that, loved every second of my holiday and met some lovely people. Hope to stay in contact with them all.
