My boyfriend and i went to zante the 10th of June till the 17th, and it was absoloutly gorgeous, we booked it in Febuary and went just to get away from work and chill.
We stayed in the main part of the hotel and yes, fair enough it could do with a lick of paint, but the room and building itself was always clean and tidy, we were on the 2nd floor with a sea view! The staff were always friendly and couldn't do enough for you.
We always found something to eat breakfast, dinner and evening meal, lovely pasta dishes! I mean where else can you have champagne and freshly made pancakes made in front of you for breakfast - hence the weight we have put on, very worth it though!
The pool wasn't massive but it didn't need to be as you just had to turn your head to see the sea. It could probably get a bit annoying if there were lots of children there, but you were next to the pool bar and in the middle of the entertainment from Paulo, Stephano, Veronica and the gang!
We spent 6 out of 7 days on the beach and yes it is 8 euro's for 2 sunbeds and a parasol with table but it was too nice to moan about the money, it didn't matter.
THE TURTLES - OH MY GOD! My boyfriend was obsessed with them before we even went so when we saw how close the were to the beach and when he got to swim with them it was totally amazing to see, really gorgeous and friendly creatures. We got some great photos with a waterproof camera i definatley recommend you take 1 or even 2 like us!!
Another thing the water is so unbelievably shallow, great for kids!
The main strip was great, loved the Hagen Dazs shop! Also they have some lovely cocktail bars, can recommend the c - lounge and the red poppy so chilled out, none of the hustle and bustle!
The only problem is the airport, what a night mare 1 check in desk, 1 passport control, it is quite ridiculous, you have to que outside in the heat although they did have shaded areas its still hot. Apparently they are building a new one though!
I would definatley recommend this hotel to anyone, just looking at the pictures i really miss been there, i think we will be back to see our friends the turtles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
