Hotel Diana Palace

This central hotel is a real favourite with guests, thanks to its great pool scene and nearby beach.

This compact hotel has just 130 rooms, giving it a warm, intimate feel. Outside there’s a big pool in among the gardens. And on the dining front, there’s a big buffet restaurant and barbecue nights.

The hotel’s on one of Argassi’s main streets, so there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. It’s a 5-minute stroll from the beach, while 5 minutes in the car will get you to the capital, Zante Town.

Hotel and airport scam

The hotel was ok. Clean but food very ordinary. For an all inclusive the drinks were not up to scratch.Staff very pleasant. Be aware that any excess baggage will be heavily charged and airport staff not helpful. Thomson agent at airport didn't help when we queried excess charge and once back in UK Thomson repeatedly said they could do nothing to help. It really is a disgrace and would advise anyone traveling to Zante to check weights very carefully. The resort itself is fun with good choice of restaurants and local free bus to beach. Can't emphasize enough the total regard Thomson have for helping you at the airport once they have your money. It was totally avoidable and highlighted a complete lack of customer service.More

What can I say that hasn't already been said It's a nice small hotel, right in the middle of the town, very close to everything go out the bottom exit cross the road and the noddy trains there to take you to zante for 5 euro's return Because its a smaller all inclusive it doesn't have the range food wise that the bigger hotels do, but what there is of high quality, always hot, quickly replenished if it goes low. What makes this hotel special is the staff, from the barmen who get to know everyone and remember what you have, who always have a smiling face and warm greeting for you. The restaurant staff who will help in anyway they can and are friendly helpful to the chiefs cooking eggs in the morning you have only to ask for a fresh cooked egg or omelette nothing seems to be to much trouble for any of the staff, the main desk staff are just the same, the animation team who even if you don't what to take part still have a friendly greeting and a joke with you All in all very nice place to stayMore

This was my first time at the DP and i have to say its one of the best holidays we have ever had, my next door neighbours advised us to go having been twice themselves and told me i would love it and believe me they were not wrong the staff are brilliant they work endlessly to ensure you are well feed, entertained room cleaned everyday and nothing is to much trouble for anyone of them they are genuine all the names of all the staff have been for-mentioned in other posts, we met with some fantastic people and have never laughed so much we have made genuine friends for life this hotel feels like home from home. We never normally complain about our room but on this occasion we were given a small room 120 and felt let down and feel we would have gone away with the wrong impression of the hotel which would have been totally wrong but having approached reception we stayed 1 night and we were moved with no hassle to 405 as said nothing is to much trouble for any of the staff and everyone is treated like a special guest. I would like to thank every member of staff for there hard work and making a holiday extra special. Must do visit Keri caves and St Nicholas beach both stunning.More

Great friendly staff

This hotel has a great atmosphere, this is due to all the staff being so friendly, eager to help and their devotion to making your holiday special. The rooms are basic but do not confuse this with poor quality. They are very clean and comfortable. On the first day I sat on the bed and expected not to sleep well due to the firmness of the mattress, I couldn't be more wrong, I slept really well even when I hadn't had a drink. The shower in the bathroom is very powerful and the hot water never seems to run out. The food in this hotel is excellent and we never felt the need to eat in external restaurants. We planned to eat out but instead we couldn't wait to see what was being served for the next meal. In our group of 8 people we had 2 vegetarians and 1 vegan, they never struggled to find something to eat in the great selection offered each day, for every meal there are multiple vegetarian options. I rarely say this about a holiday but we arrived home yesterday and we are already considering returning next year. All eight of our group feel that it was one of the best holidays we've had. This hotel might not have the highest star rating but with a combination of the cleanliness, food, staff and atmosphere it gets a full five stars from me. I have stayed in very expensive hotels in the past but this hotel beats them. Advertised as 3 stars but with the 5 star dedication from the staff I advise that you do not overlook this hotel due to its star rating in brochures. A high quality service on a reasonable budget. My only concern is not being able to get a room for my return trip, the Facebook page is getting more members every day and everyone seems to rate this place as highly as I do. I feel it's reputation will soon change from hidden little gem to a must visit destination. More

Fabulous!

We returned from this holiday yesterday, and it was amazing. I rarely review places but feel this deserves a mention. We were a party of 8 adults and all felt this hotel was amazing. We have stayed in more expensive hotels in the past but this hotel is easily the best place we have stayed ( even better than 5 star) in my opinion. All inclusive drinks were good, a varied selection and Marcos would make a variety of cocktails out of the drinks available for a change. The service was excellent, and staff remembered what your requirements were! Making you feel important. Food- excellent, we had a vegan and 2 vegetarian friends with us and they were well catrered for. There was excellent choice, and there was so much variety every day that we never felt the need to eat out- this is rare for us with all inclusive meals. Reception- service was warm and welcoming, we received a welcome drink to have whilst completing necessary check in procedures, which was efficient and painless. Rooms- we had room 605, and they made sure that we were in the room next to our friends which was really useful. We were upgraded to apartments at no extra cost as they wanted to make sure we had rooms together! Pool- no issues here either. We usually managed to get sun beds together. Animation- excellent, and although I'm not the type of person to get involved with things, there was no pressure, and if was amazed by the activity programme, starting from morning right through to night time, I can't believe how hard Orlando, Miro and Tania work! Overall this was a fab holiday, and I would love to go back. Other guests were friendly, also contributing to this experience. Thank you to all at Diana Palace Hotel.More
