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.

My husband & I travelled for the first time to Zante at the end of June. I had read a lot of excellent reviews for the hotel then days before leaving read one off a different website which was not positive so was a little apprehensive. I need not have worried as from the moment we arrived the welcome was abundant. The 2 Katarina' s on reception were most welcoming and explained everything about the hotel. Our room although basic as is the norm for Greece it was very clean and large with a sea view and we paid the extra for air con as temperature was quite high and kept it lovely for sleeping. Once you have met Stathis at the pool bar he will never forget your name or your drink amazing !!!!! All of the other bar staff including Ileas were so friendly as were all of the staff in the restaurant Who saw to everything whilst chatting and making mealtimes enjoyable.The food in the restaurant was always plentiful with good choices as were afternoon snacks. We enjoyed an amazing week and the location was right in the middle of Argassi so if you fancied a change for eating or wanted to shop or to carrying on drinking after all inclusive finished then it was a little stroll out of either the front or back door of the hotel and you were there. Hopefully we will visit this friendly hotel again in the future .More

Great staff who really make you feel welcome
Well what can I say firstly the staff are a credit they are so so helpful and I mean everyone. Special mentions to Stathis, Ilias and Marcos who always welcomed you and remembered your drinks. Bianca for looking after Amber so well and to Orlando and Myro for the many games and water gym, I can't stop singing fly over the rainbow. The food well what can I say it was excellent I tried so many Greek dishes I'll be looking up the recipes loved the beef stifado and stuffed tomatoes in particular and the cakes well I just couldn't resist and nothing was too much trouble, my daughter didn't fancy anything on the menu one night and a quick mention to Dennis and the chef made her a pasta which she loved. Will definitely recommend the Diana Palace to friends and we will return.More
Brilliant - keep up the good work!
After reading the reviews my girlfriend and i booked up and had a week with you guys 29th June - 6th July. The reviews dont lie. A brilliant hotel, with the most friendly staff. Activities all day long, but the staff arent pushy forcing you to partake. The hotel itself is nice, all inclusive is great and it has a great swimming pool...though we only discovered the second bar towards the end of the holiday....doh!! It is also in a wonderful location right in the centre of Argassi Thank you for a wonderful holiday and we will definately be returning!!More

Excellent Family Holiday
Recently stayed at Diana Palace (19 -29 June 14), there was 13 of us and all had a fantastic time. All staff were brilliant, polite and made us all feel welcome. I have read a comment regarding the children's entertainment, stating that there was not much for the children. We disagree with this, our children enjoyed the entertainment, during the day around the pool and the children's disco. Our youngest still talks about 'Bianca' and cried when we came home as he said he would miss her. (He has already asked when we will be coming back so he can play 'Jenga' and have a 'kids cocktail'). Every member of staff was very helpful and could not do enough for us. (Even the Housekeepers placed the children's toys on the bed and made bows out of the towels which the children loved). We can not fault anything!!!!! Thank you so much for helping to make our family holiday one to remember. We are already thinking about coming back again next year.More

Wonderful, will never forget this hotel!!!
Wow. Having worked in hospitality for much of my life I can honestly say that I have never met such an amazing team! Friendly, hard working and genuinely concerned in making sure you have a good time. I can not fault this hotel. We went as a young couple looking for a relaxing holiday by the pool. What we got was better, not only did we relax but we had fun. The animation team did a great job getting everyone involved but I hasten to add that they in no way pestered people if the didn't want to join in. There was such a great feeling of friendship and sense of a little community that we experienced in such a short amount of time. Rooms were cleaned every day and I could see what care was taken every evening by the staff to make the pool area clean and hygienic. I loved the food, I though there was great variety and we never had to queue. I went away expecting an pretty good holiday from the reviews I read. All I can say is that you don't realise the impact wonderful staff can have on your holiday. They were happy, they made all the guests happy and they made us happy. The negative reviews you read are those in life who like to pick fault and who are never happy, ignore them. I doubt you could experience a holiday like this anywhere else!More
