“Another fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Just back from our second visit to Bitzaro Grande and i would like to thank all the staff at this hotel, they really do make a difference!!.The hotel is very clean in all areas. The food is as good as last time even though there was a change of Head Chef while we were out there ( sometimes you cant please everyone ). New barman Kostas is a gem and likes to help you too sleep on an evening!!.
Anyone looking to go here i am sure you will have a fab time. Kalamaki is a small town with a few nice bars, restaurants and shops. Laganas is a pleasant 30 minutes walk along the beach where there is plenty to do and see and Zante town is just a short 9 euro taxi ride away. All i can say is that we will return again and THANK YOU.

Stayed in Hotel 24/06/14 to 8/07/14,we really enjoyed our stay here,from the moment we checked in to the day we checked out the staff couldn't do enough for us, after a couple of days they remembered our names. The Food was really tasty & we always found something to eat. For me what really made our holiday was the animation team! Thomas Olly Laura always up for a laugh & always made time to talk to guests whether they joined in activities or not & they were never too pushy if you just want chill around pool.
Nicky in the pool bar works her socks off,she was always smiling & remembers everybody's names! Kostas in reception made some really good Cocktails!
Thank you to all the staff for making our holiday so special :-)

The one negative thing is that we were not there for long enough.
The last reviewers watch must need a new battery as flights in or out of Zakynthos don't fly at 03:00. The earliest flight I've seen is around 06:00 and let me assure you, they are in no way intrusive.
It's quite nice to see actually. And another plus is that a taxi from the airport is only €13, this makes for a stress free transfer.
This hotel is in my opinion the best hotel I've ever stayed in, although not for the luxury or mod cons. I've stayed in hotels all around the world in some really fancy 5* places. Where this place takes it is the atmosphere of the place. From the moment you walk through the door, you immediately feel part of the place. From Nikky at reception, Karin, the Dutch bird on the door of the restaurant...lol Love you Karin <3... To the cleaners you see first thing in the morning, all are so so nice. Daytime games around the pool and pool bar with the entertainment staff Tomas, Laura, Oli and Ava... These people are a whole lot of fun. There are a million games and a lot of people like to get involved. Everyone gets to know everyone very quickly that way. The night time entertainment also is a mixture of professional acts and nights where the audience are a big part. This I like as again, you get to know all the people staying there. You really do become part of the Bitzaro family. And that I believe is why this hotel has so many people returning year after year. Very close to the beach and Laganas the party town is only 5€ Taxi. If you can, get ya self a boat for the day and go Turtle spotting, we had the most fantastic day. My wife and I will be returning again in 2015. So, until then... It's been emotional!

Why would anybody go to this hotel more than once? O.k. the staff were very friendly, the gardens were pretty and well maintained but the aircraft noise is unacceptable in my opinion. You could almost shake hands with the pilot as they flew over the hotel. The take offs at three or four am are so noisy particularly on a Friday they woke us up (poor nesting Turtles must be scared to death).
All alcoholic drinks very watered down, wine was very rough and the orange juice after our first week had more and more water added to it until it was like weak orange squash. Rooms were basic but bathroom in dire need of refurb. Don't bother taking long trousers to wear in the dining room as nobody adhered to this rule and wore shorts. The sanitizing hand gel on display at entrance to dining room was so watered down as to render it useless.
A two tier system of all inclusive applies. Those with gold wrist bands (who have been to this hotel more than three times) getting nice big fluffy green pool towels etc. which are denied to other guests. We asked when we booked this holiday if we could hire pool towels only to be told they did not have them.
Don't even bother with a packed lunch for excursions as all you get is a ham salad roll no drink, no fruit, just the roll!
The island is very green and pretty can recommend Turtle trip.
This hotel is in no way shape or form a four star. We definitely will not be amongst the gold wrist band brigade as we will not be going back to this hotel again.
There are so many more places to visit to broaden your horizons.

Just got home after a week at bitzaro grande, after reading the reviews we had high expectations and we were not disappointed! The hotel is in a good quite location but close enough to laganas for the night life in a quick taxi! Yes the aeroplanes come close by but it never bothered anyone and they don't fly at night! The food was amazing - something different every night and I'm a fussy eater but always something Delicious! The pool is beautiful and plenty of sun beds for everyone! The staff are very friendly but don't pressurise you to take part in activities! The rooms are good -furniture abit dated but very clean and neutral colours! The beach is sandy and only a 5 min walk away. We did the shipwreck tour which was good through Thomas cook although I think the trips booked with smaller groups are better - and the sea can get choppy on west side of the island! Turtle island tour was also good but next time we will hire a speedboat and do our own tour! Overall we had a brilliant holiday and will be returning to bitzaro! They definitely recognise their regular holiday makers but are very welcoming to new comers! Roll on 2015 summer holiday!

we have just enjoyed another wonderful holiday at the bitzaro. It's our first time this year but we will be going back in august. We couldn't manage without our 2 holidays each year at this hotel.
From the moment we arrive the staff and the family make us so welcome. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant is of a very high standard - plenty of variety to suit all tastes.The entertainment staff are friendly and provide lots of daytime games and evening fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a holiday on this beautiful island, at this lovely hotel in kalamaki to anyone.

Room Tip: all rooms seem to be of the same standard with nice views of the pools and gardens
