First time at this hotel and also to Zante. Hotel was so clean and well maintained. Food was plentiful and always something to choose from, waiting staff worked very hard and constantly kept your drinks topped up.
Pool area was great, plenty of loungers and nobody seemed to be reserving them and not showing up....a personal bug bear of mine. Although the weather was hot the pool could be rather cold and the indoor (heated) pool was freezing!
Rooms were kept very clean, water replenished daily, couldn't complain at all. We had a pool and sea view room, overlooking the entertainment/main bar area so it could be slightly noisy.
Cute cats and kittens living in the hotel grounds, lots of people feeding them but they didn't bother you.
We went into the nearby shops most nights for a coffee and a cake at the local bakery...highly recommended and great place to sit and watch the world go by. Sadly the bars were all a bit tacky and mostly empty, from what we could see. Seemingly all the bars catering for the English with either X Factor or Football on the TV and serving full English breakfasts, not really our thing on holiday, you can get that at home! We ate at a fantastic Greek restaurant called The Olive Tree- highly recommended, food was the best we ever tasted and the service and surroundings were relaxed and friendly.
One downside with the hotel was the entertainment. It was all geared up for people of a certain age, with bingo, quiz night, cheesy singers. Greek dancers were a treat though. The main problem was that the entertainment didn't start until late (9:30-10pm) and went on until midnight, if you wanted an early night then there was no chance!
Overall a great weeks holiday, lovely hotel, great staff and amazing weather will definitely go back in a few years.
