Great time had by all
Me, my boyfriend, my parents, my sister and her boyfriend just spent two lovely weeks at this hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious with plenty of room for all our clothes and the bathroom was lovely and clean too. Bottle of water in the fridge on arrival, although it wasn't replaced which would of been a plus. Food, salad was always amazing at lunch and dinner, sometimes the hot food was a tad low of choice for me personally, but my boyfriend always liked it so maybe I'm just a bit fussy :) breakfast has hams and cheeses, cooked food, pastries, cereals, smoothies ect. Great choice of food and the restaurant staff all very friendly. Pool area is lovely and clean, pool bar decent sometimes the ques are a bit long. Pools are lovely if a bit cold early in the morning. Overall we had an amazing stay, loved the main bar inside the hotel, the guys in there are brilliant and always made my drink the strange way I liked it! Some small niggles as recommendations for improvements 1) the wifi is really bad especially in the rooms, only decent place to get wifi is in the bar or the top pool. 2) sometimes there were too many people at the restaurant entrance which made me feel slightly uncomfortable walking in. The staff are a credit to the hotel, and the atmosphere and views are wonderful. Would definitely recommend this place. Keep up the good work :) More

Great place to holiday
We have just returned from the Eleon Grand in Zante and I can say honestly if you need a family holiday within 4 hours this is definitely a place to consider. We arrived late and everything was closed apart from the beach bar, following a warm welcome from the reception staff we were allowed to attend the a'la carte restaurant for a bit to eat even though it was officially closed. The staff were very good, as most people say they are very efficient and nothing is too much trouble, drinks service around the pool, the poolside bars and restaurant was all served with a smile. We stopped in the superior suite with a pool, accommodation was good and the pool surprisingly larger than expected, you won't be doing lengths but if you have kids it's a good escape from the main areas during the hottest time of the day. The fridge was restocked daily with soft drinks, water and a couple of cans of non description lager but all was welcome. The towels were changed daily and the rooms cleaned usually when you are out for either breakfast or lunch so as to not interfere with your stay. The entertainment did exactly what it should and entertained, and the entertainment staff, Mark and his team were fantastic and never seemed to be away from the hotel. Kids club was great for my 8 year old girl who didn't want to go originally but ended up wanting to go twice a day. Food was plentiful and being the worlds pickiest eater I still found something to eat during every meal either in the restaurant or at the snack bar. Even my daughter being the second pickiest eater in the world enjoyed her meals. The hotel itself is very nice although fairly spaced out over the grounds, we were as far away from the main building as you can get but this was still only 200 yards and often the hotel golf buggy floated around picking guests up to bring them to the main building. The pools are great and the large infinity pools were very quiet mostly so it was easy to relax. We didn't use the spa so cannot really comment but the facilities looked nice, the gym is full of cardio equipment, I spend a lot of time at the gym in Blighty and was a little disappointed at there being no weights or multigym but if that's not your thing there is no worries. Overall the hotel and staff are 5 star due to their attitude and attention to their customers. I would recommend the Eleon Grand to anyone wanting a great vacation within safe grounds with warm and friendly staff. I am already considering a return as one of our holidays next year.More

We had an amazing time at this wonderful hotel. We were welcomed with drinks at reception. The staff were amazing nothing was too much trouble. The views are beautiful! The food had good days and not so good but the salads were great every day. It was annoying that ham and bacon were added to a lots of things like potatoes & rice! I don't eat pork so that ruled some things out for me. One day I spoke to the restaurant manager and he got the chef to make me some potatoes without, no problem. We would not recommend the superior garden view rooms. When staying in the downstairs rooms the ceiling sounds like its crashing down when the people upstairs walk. We changed to an upstairs room in a different block and the floor was just as bad.More

really lovely holiday
We loved our whole experience at this hotel, the staff were very friendly, the food was good and we felt very relaxed after two weeks. The entertainment staff, particularly Mark and Amy made us feel very welcome from the start and our son, George loved the attention.... it was the first time we had stayed in an all inclusive normally preferring half board but it was worth it. The only bad experience was owe on the Smugglers cove excursion as it is not suitable for under 5's - too many winding bends to get to the boat, and the coach journey each way was 45mins, none of which we were told before booking, we should have asked but in the end the whole day was looking after a sick child, and on the cove itself there were far too many people - it was not worth the money. Overall a great holiday....More

Good place to stay during summer vacation
Me and my wife stayed at this resort for 7 days between 13th and 20th of July, 2015. We've come here together with a family friends of us. We all have chosen this resort based on our previous vacation in Crete, from 2 years ago, when we stayed at Atlantica Sensatori. Also this resort in Zakynthos was highly recommended by our Romanian tour operator. We've chosen to take 2 garden view rooms. Our rooms did not have a private mini pool outside like other garden view rooms but we didn't mind that since the resort main pools are not very far. We had the all inclusive package. Be aware that some alcoholic cocktails are not included. For instance the Long Island cocktail is not included. I don't know if this applies to snacks too. When we went to the beach which is located near the main pool area, we took from the pool's bar only drinks and fresh fruits, which were all included in the all inclusive package. Eleon's beach is with rocks. There is no sand. The sunbeds are placed around the jacuzzi and pools, and in an olive tree orchard. So instead of sand you get grass which by the way feels great to the naked foot. If you are traveling with small children who enjoy playing in the sand it might be a problem. The seaside in front of Eleon has two parts. The left side as you look towards the sea is very rocky. If you want to swim in that part I strongly recommend to buy swimming shoes because the underwater rocks are covered with seaweed and you might accidentally step on a sea urchin like I did. The right side has underwater sand. It is excellent. However, in order to reach the sand you have to cross about 10 meters of underwater rocks. There is a small trail with rocks which are not covered with seaweed. I advise you to take that trail. The rooms are kept exceptionally clean and Eleon's personnel is very friendly and helpful. But I have to say that comparing Eleon with Sensatori from Crete, Eleon comes in second place after Sensatori. It's the overall aspect of the rooms, and the location of Eleon, that made me say that. Eleon is more rural like, while Sensatori is more urban like. Please don't get me wrong. We had a very pleasant stay at Eleon but it didn't swept off my feet like the vacation at Sensatori. If Atlantica Sensatori from Crete has five stars, I give Eleon four and a half stars. I think Eleon has entered Atlantica chain of resorts recently and it has some catching up to do. But I think it is going in the right way. The food was good. I was expecting to have a greater variety of seafood dishes. There was only one dish with seafood and only occasionally there were two different dishes. The Greek pastry is excellent. I recommend it. ð The rooms with sea view are actually with swimming pool view. The sea is very close by, but those rooms have immediate access to the swimming pools. Overall we had a pleasant stay at Eleon. If you want to come to Zakynthos Island I recommend this resort.More
