“It really is a great place for a holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Recently stayed at the Meandros June 29th in a wedding party of 10. Stayed in room 402 which had great views of the area and pool. The bedroom was comfortable and large enough to cover a family of 3 A very large double bed and a child bed big enough for a teenager. An added touch was the small kitchen area including kettle, fridge, plates and cups great for the early morning wake up call. Both breakfast and evening meals were buffet style and food variation and quality was good From our party there was not one complaint with everyone complementing the food presentation and quality , those wanting a full English breakfast were not disappointed and there was always a theme evening around the evening meals . Can only support others on the performance of the staff everyone from the reception team, bar staff and food waiters were professional always smiling, helpful and leaving you with the desire of wanting to return.
The location of the hotel is very near the many bars of Kalamaki, however we did not find the resort lively many of the bars were almost deserted however the taxi rank near the hotel with fares displayed can service the night owls. The beach is a short flat walk away less than 10 minutes and a welcome alternative to the pool.

Overall a great hotel and you will not be disappointed

We holidayed at the meandros 19th june to 29th. On arrival we received complimentary drinks and then were swiftly shown to our rooms. My wife and i were given room 402 which had a real wow factor with views of the mountains and sea and also a pool view. The patio and room was enchanting and of an enormous size causing me to comment that it was by far the best room we'd stayed in whilst abroad.The breakfasts were the typical all english which we do enjoy the evening meals had a kind of international feel but you could usually find something you liked.They have a greek nite buffet style on a friday evening
with greek dancers and occasionally audience participation if u feel up to it lol !....A special mention though must go to the staff who are friendly and extremely hardworking, Daisy n Peter (restuarant) Maria Terry n Mario(bar) Andrei a lovely human being n gentleman(entertainment/animation)and last but certainly not least Dina for getting me out of a sticky situation. Thanx to you all hope to see you in the near future xxxx

We have just returned home from a week at Meandros and reading the other posts I wonder if we were at a different hotel. The food was at best moderate and buffet style, not what I would expect from a four star property, so for 6 of the seven nights we ate elsewhere. The food in the surrounding restaurants is too die for.
Never went for breakfast so can't comment. The evening entertainment is dire, the only thing we were looking forward to, the local rock band, got cancelled as they didn't have enough attendees.
Bar prices are excessive, I can't believe they charge €3:50 for an orange juice, when a beer is €3, and it's from a carton not fresh either.
Evening barman seems permanently miserable, but I guess he has his own company for most of the evening as the bar is little used.
The hotel itself is great, rooms are fine, showers good, although hot water can be a little sparse at times.
Shame they don't offer self catering as you can miss a lot of Greek culture by eating here.

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for taking the time to add your review on meandros hotel and for sharing your personal opinion with us.

First of all we would like to thank you for your positive feedback on our accommodation. With all due respect please allow us to say that your review is not homogeneous with the majority of our reviews.

In particular, our guests value the quality and variety of our buffet as the kind that reflects Greek gastronomy and Mediterranean cooking. Our menu is set by our kitchen team so as to reflect Greek tastes combined with international kitchen so as to satisfy all nationalities of our guests.

We respect the fact that according to your past travel experience your expectations may be far beyond with what we offer but I would like to mention that our chef is always there to cater every need of our guests and it would be his pleasure to assist you on cooking something different for you that would match your needs.

Most of all, we feel very frustrated for the fact that our staff seemed miserable to you and this comment of yours surprised us. One of the reasons that the vast majority of our repeat visitors return to Meandros is to meet again our staff and enjoy their hospitality and caring character. We are very sorry to know that you were not amongst them. If someone takes a look in our past reviews referring to our staff can easily come with a conclusion that is totally contradicting yours.

Considering that you visited the restaurants around the resort you may have seen that juices cost 3.50 to 4.00 Euros so we believe that this rate is quite fair for our guests.
Lastly, as for the rock band, we would like to inform you that this event was not included in our weekly animation program. They were booked at 6 pm to make a live show at about 10 pm having a policy of minimum people attending 10 pax. Having not managed to gather more than 4 people all we could do was to cancel this event due to lack of attendees.

To avoid misleading our readers I would like to remind you that this event had free admission for all of our guests and it was a last minute booking from our hotel. We were not happy either that they canceled it but instead Mario who is running our animation at night was there to do something instead to keep our guests happy.

Thank you for taking the time to go through our response and again on behalf of all in the hotel we would like to say that considering the nature of the reviews in our listing one can say that your review was written for another hotel as your comments do not reflect what Meandros stands for.

Just got back home today after 11 nights at the Meandros. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, the only thing I could have improved was to be on a higher level as we were ground floor at the side which made it noisy sometimes but that didn't change my opinion, you get what your given. The food was good, personally I felt it was slightly limited to what I could eat but that's mostly down to being pregnant and being cautious. It was very clean, and the staff were very polite and helpful! Spent most of the time around the pool which was great, the location is brilliant if your after a relaxing get away! Overall me and my partner were very happy with our holiday throughout and would like to thank the staff at the hotel to massively contributing to that! Sad to leave!!!

We stayed here 12th-19th June and had such a fantastic time we are already thinking of booking again for next year. As we were checking in we were brought cocktails as a welcome drink which was a lovely touch, also we were upgraded to a large 'superior room' overlooking the pool just because the hotel happened to have one free! Check in was quick and efficent and reception staff very welcoming and approachable.
The food here is nothing short of excellent, unfortunatley if chicken nuggets and chips is your thing you wont find it here! Its was well cooked, well prsented traditional Greek food such as beef stifado, with greek roast potatos, fresh salads etc. One night we ate roast belly pork which was exceptional and true resturant quality. Greek Night on Friday night is a BBQ served outside with greek music and dancing this again was lovely and the food high quality. Breakfast is the usual choice of continental or cooked 'English' although the sausage and fried ham (bacon) may not be to everyones taste.
We cannot write a review without mentioning Mario, who is lively, cheeky and a bit like your little brother always bugging you to join in games!! On a couple of nights we only popped to the hotel bar for one and ended up staying hours! We also have to give a special mention to Terry who ran the hotel bar at night and is polite, hardworking and genunie nice guy.
The hotel pool is great with comfortable sunbeds which there are plenty of, great view over looking the mountains and overall very clean and comfortable.
The location of the hotel is brilliant- tucked up one end of Kalamaki with the bars within walking distance but the hotel being far enough away that you can get away from the noise and get some peace and quiet at bed time.
The hotel is well run with a family feel, and all areas of the hotel are kept spotless, gardens are well kept and also during our stay all the matteress in the bedrooms were replaced.
Also after about 4 days staying in the hotel we were surprised to find out that extensive work was being done on a spa underneath the hotel- the workman were that quiet and tidy and unobtrusive that we didnt even realise they were there!! Can you imagine this in Spain?!! We believe this shows how valued the guests are to this hotel.
The staff here make this hotel they are ALL friendly, helpful and happy to see you- English hotels could learn alot from a vist here!
As a side note the Cave bar is well worth a visit- located just opposite the hotel and the restaurant Pathanon next to the English pub (Rose & Crown) serves lovely food.
Fingers crossed we will be back next year!!

We stayed there 29th may 2014 for 10 nights. Room 413 overlooking the pool with a sea view.
The staff are fantastic and our room was cleaned daily. Mainly English guests and to be honest this hotel made our stay so enjoyable we are returning to zante in 11 weeks.
We will return again to this hotel for sure.

Room Tip: Family rooms overlooking the car park get sun on balcony in the afternoon.
