This is the second time at the Zante Maris, the first time being in 2011 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay which is why we returned. However, this time it was different. The staff at reception, pool bar and restaurant were wonderful, apart from having to wait ages to be served a drink in the restaurant unless you sat in the right place. Our room, cleanish. Plumbing in bathroom appalling. After using the sink to wash hands or have a shower the waste water rose up through the grill on the bathroom floor, not what is expected from a 4 star. The bathroom floor got flooded every day. The water from the shower was hot one second and ice cold the next. Really uncomfortable. The air conditioning unit even on the coldest setting was inefficient and did not cool the room we asked to have this looked at but no change, friends of ours A/C worked and cooled their rooms properly. After showering in the evening we had to leave as soon as possible because the room would not cool down. Entertainment, dire. On our previous holiday Dritan organised the entertainment and was fantastic this year he was so subdued. Dan an entertainments rep was brought in from another hotel but lacked energy and personality. In the pool was volleyball or water polo, not for young children as this got quite rough. Don't expect entertainment for children under 14 years. Evening entertainment should have started at 9.45pm more like 10pm which was too late, average singers, bingo (3 nights a week), best night Greek night (all inclusive drinks stop at 11pm!). The room for playing table tennis was dull and dirty and used for storing chairs and other hotel equipment. The main part of the hotel is nice but the rooms and bathrooms are dated and need attention. The food quality was not up to standard this year. The beach is near it has sand but also has a lot of stones. The hotel is in a good position and the First Choice rep, Hattie is friendly and very efficient. This is a truthful assessment it is quite a nice place but not worth 4 star money.
