Zante Imperial Hotel
Ranked #17 of 18 Hotels in Vasilikos
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The facilities are nice , the rooms are fine and clean , the swimming pools not so clean ( as there were so many people) the restaurant could be better , and the drinks couldn't be worse !!!!

It is a typical all inclusive complex of 3 hotels. I would suggest it only for budget travellers who want to visit Zante and see the island without spending a lot of money.

Room Tip: with a view to the sea , or even better with a private pool

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel but there were many disadvantages. The location is very poor. Without a car it is very difficult to get anywhere from the hotel. The way to the beach is also very long because hotel is situated on a hill and you have to go by maaany steep stairs or by a lift (which is very slow and you have to wait for a while for it -in a heat) Hotel is quite old, everything (almost) needs a renovation. Food was not tasty - almost every day the same, not a big choice of snacks during a day ( to be honest hardly any !)
Rooms needs renovation, we paid for a sea view and then regret it because there was no sea view ! The room was located from the sea side but you couldnt see the sea :) so its definetly not worth paying for it ! oh and the beach is public so you have to pay for everything if you want to go there (sun beds, umbrellas etc)
To sum up it is not bad, but not good either and I would definetly not go there again.

We stayed at this hotel 6 years ago and had a great time, there was a great beach restaurant & beach bar plus a bar in the reception area all included free in the package, The hotel as now changed hands and it is the biggest rip off in europe with the worst food of any establishment we have stayed in. Every meal served cold horrible food, the food we could eat we had to warm up in
the microwave ( no exceptions any meal inc tea ), the manager of the hotel is the most ignorant man we have ever met in our life and looked straight through us when we passed him. He was questioned by another english girl about the quality of the food and he replied by saying the menu was compiled for the eastern bloc he didnt really care what the english thought. He seemed to spend his time telling off the staff and this created a tense atmosphere in the restaurant. We were totally surrounded by Russians who tried to give the impression they were superior to us, they totally lacked any manners or courtesy and helped make our holiday a misery. I can honestly say we would not accept an holiday at this hotel if it was free and all expenses paid. Had it not been for the weather & the two boat trips with Mario and dont think
we could have survived the 11 days.
I would urge any travel agent not to send any British holidaymakers to this dump. IT IS THE ORIGINAL HOLIDAY FROM HELL, AND I SINCERELY HOPE THIS NEW OWNER GETS WHAT
HE DESERVES FOR HIS RIP OFF POLICY.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT GO THERE.

After being changed from our original hotel we was sent to the Zante imperial 4 star..(not) firstly it was like being in the centre of Russia who where very ignorant to say the least.and wasps wasps wasps I've never seen so many In my life there were people getting stung daily just getting their drinks from the bar area. And whilst eating the terrible food that was on offer we asked the manager why don't they do outside cooking ie barbecues and was told that they cater for the eastern block the food was always cold and pouring cold milk over the scrambled eggs which should not happen.never any hot water unless you showered at 3 in the afternoon because at 5 in the afternoon you had no chance.,entertainment well what can I say about that SHOCKING 25 minutes all in Russian and polish and yes just 25 minutes per night.RATS running about the place at night went and complained then finally got changed room after 2 nights the BEACH which they say is theirs is not because only 8 beds are reserved on the beach for the Russians only otherwise it is 7 euros for 2beds and an umbrella so if you want to go to the beach take some money with you or you have a long way up the stairs if the lift ain't working which we was told only operates every 15 minutes as it is old.some of the reception staff are the most miserable I've ever met if your a family with children definitely do not book this hotel SORRY I will say anyone who is English DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL you have been warned the only ones who made our holiday was the other 8 English out of about 600 who was there who couldn't wait to get home and the bar staff who were treated like dogs and fed like dogs as well.and il finish with the wasps again still can't get over how many there was with nests everywhere on the buildings.even the few German and polish we met hated it.one word I can only describe is disgrace ENGLISH ARE NOT WELCOME HERE....

Room Tip: Get a sea view not a mountain view

Just got back from two week at this resort, first I would like to say THIS HOTEL IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT therefore all previous year reviews should be read with caution & taken with a pinch of salt, the resort consists of 3 hotels, Palazzo di zante, Imperial and Royal zante, they have all undergone some sort of refurnishing & upgrading also this winter they will be upgraded again, we were on A/I basis food was great with theme nights ever night, beer & wine of very good quality, lovely atmosphere in dinning areas. you can use all 3 hotels facility but they do prefer that you eat in your own hotel so they know how many people they are catering for which I personally find logical. lots for kids to do they have a massive indoor play center which is supervised by trained staff, the animation teams speak several languages also. you have a choice of 3 pools & the beach, you do have to pay for sun-beds on the beach but you never know this may change by next year. there is a lift to go up & down to the beach as it is built on a hill side also there is a teleferic (cable car style) which makes trips every 15 min & of course you can walk. We stayed in the Palazzo di zante our room had its own private pool on the balcony lovely for late night swimming, we found staff very helpful everything we requested was done for us, just remember all you have do to is ask.
