A great location and a huge pool keep guests returning to the Bitzaro year after year.
The hotel’s on the outskirts of Kalamaki, just 5 minutes’ walk into town and double that to the soft-sand beach. Keep an eye out for loggerhead turtles - the sands are their nesting turf.
At the hotel, there’s a huge pool and a big buffet restaurant that serves up a real mix of dishes. There's also a decent portfolio of activities and entertainment.

The pool has a feature waterfall backdrop, there are sunbeds with parasols on the terrace. And you'll have a great view of the kids' pool.
Open for buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant is bright and has a warm feeling with readily laid tables and staff to take your plates.
Great for kids to let out any excitement.

Did not meet expectation
I stayed here with my partner and two friends in august. We spent a lot of time researching what hotel to stay at and our decision to stay at the bizarro was mainly down to the excellent reviews on trip advisor. The hotel is a nice building with a large pool and is very clean and tidy however the majority of reviews on trip advisor simply do not ring true. The staff are very hit and miss, some are very pleasant whilst others don't give you the time of day The food is very average and is self service so if you're not queuing up when the restaraunt opens by the time you go to get something it's generally been messed with by lots of people. We stayed for two weeks and despite it being on an all inclusive basis we ate out in the evenings the majority of times just so we could have an enjoyable meal and a bit of variety. The drinks are very poor standard and are served in plastic cups so if you want a normal drink to relax in the evening you will find yourself going out to nearby bars just to get a pint. The entertainment ion the day is ok as it keeps kids entertained but in the evening it was absolutely terrible, just the hotel entertainment team who just seemed to make it up as they went along. Accommodation was very good and very clean and tidy. The location is ideal and I would definatley recomend taking advantage of the various day trips available. Sun beds were very hit and miss, 90% of the time unless you got up very early and went and stood next to them whislt the member of staff was u chaining them you would not get one however if it was a change over day you were ok As a summary I would say the hotel is of a nice standard but no where near the ratings it is given on trip advisor which I think are probably added by very loyal returning guests. If you go based on these reviews you will find that your expectations are not met and will be left feeling disapoittedMore
Good but not the same
I have thought long and hard about this review,we stayed at the hotel in sept( our 5th stay) the hotel staff are excellent, the only thing that was not so good was the entertainment and food,the entertainment staff tried but we got the impression all they wanted to do is sell trips in the jeeps (20euroeach) and one had to drive plus another 10 euro each for petrol......you can hire one for 30 up the strip.the food was ok but we feel it was a little bit of a let down from last year,I'm not a fussy eater but some days the meat/ fish was a little under cooked for,please don't get me wrong a lot of guests found the food good,it might be just me.Would I stay here again yes but I will leave it for a year or two.if you have booked here don't worry it's a great hotel and you will enjoy it,maybe after going 4times we have been spoilt.More

I have just recently returned from a two week stay at the Bitzaro Grande Hotel on Zante on an all inclusive basis ,I must say that this Hotel does not dissapoint on any detail , All area's are kept scrupulesly clean,The rooms are also well cleaned and maintained we where upgraded to a suite which was far bigger the our needs but was very much appreciated, we did have issues with a TV not working correctly and a flooding bathroom when the shower was used both these issues where resolved very fast and efficiently to our satisfaction. The Restuarant is light and airy and the choice and quality of the food is excelant always being hot and constantly being replenished and the staff very attentive in fact all of the staff without exception are brilliant nothing is too much trouble in fact many remember your name and your regular orders , The hotel is situated approx 100mtrs down a side road from the end of the main resort street and 600mts from the Beech which is well worth a visit we actualy watched the volunteers opening up a Turtle nest to log the outcome of the hatchings that had taken place a few days before only to find 3 baby turtles that had failed to dig themselves out and we where able to see them guide to the sea and hopefully survive This Hotel is situated close to the airport as all the brochures highlight but we did not find this a problem when you are by the pool you do see the plane very low coming into land but they are not over the Hotel and not very noisy it is only if the wind changes and they take off in the opposit direction there is noise but this only happend one day out of fourteen and did not bother us at all. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone and they seem to have a large number of returning guestsMore
