A beachfront location and a neighbouring waterpark – the Eleon Grand Resort & Spa Hotel has a lot to brag about.
With an olive grove on one side, the Ionian Sea on the other, and a waterpark right next door, the Eleon Grand Resort & Spa has a top spot. Plus, if you fancy exploring, Tsilivi is 5 minutes away by taxi.
The hotel has got facilities to shout about. It’s got multi-level pools, a splash park, and an international restaurant, not to mention a beachfront setting.

We stayed here for 6 days(long story but we missed our flight! Don't rely on GWR). The pool area is stunning and the staff are lovely; every day we were around the hotel, we would chat with the entertainment team, bar staff, spa staff and the life guard.Everyone made us feel very welcome and made the hotel even more special. Seriously, make the effort to join in the daily and evening activities, you won't regret it! I also recommend the spa, we had the couples retreat and it was brilliant, felt so relaxed and calm for the rest of the day. The location is great if you do not want a loud, busy resort area. However, it is a great place to explore from. You can easily walk to Tsilivi in about 40minutes (Or bus it, only one an hour and often not on time) where there is the water park and a sandy-ish beach with a fair few bars - if you like cocktails I recommend you head to the Phoenix Beach Hotel on the beach, pretty cheap and they have happy hour 6-9pm. The Eleon Grand only have a set menu for all inclusive cocktails which misses out the classics; don't get me wrong, the Eleon Grand cocktails are tasty, but we missed our favourites and 7 euros is a bit steep. You can also bus it to Zante for 1, 80 each way. Our room was comfortable and kept fairly clean. My only issue with the cleaning staff is that they accidentally threw my contact lens case away and so I had to waste a pair of lenses. For the food options, it is fairly standard, hotel buffet food. I am gluten and lactose intolerant but still managed to eat my fair share. If you are more into your food then I recommend going on the excursions from Thomson (if you are with them!) as they take you to some amazing food placesMore
We have just got back from having a brilliant week at the Alantica Eleon Grand resort , I can't recommend it enough for families. We have a daughter 8 & son 6 & they had an amazing time, the entertainment team were absolutely brilliant with them & made there time there.. The hotels it's self was also very lovely, spotlessly clean everywhere, & a beautiful location. The staff couldn't do enough to make your stay go smoothly, they all work VERY hard. Our rooms were cleaned everyday & were nice bright & spacious .. The food was great, & loads of choice, different themes nights throughout the week.. All in all we would go back to beautiful zante & stay in the Alantica Eleon in a heartbeat. More
The hotel has a great atmosphere it is very friendly and welcoming. The staff cannot do enough for you from the reception staff to the general manager. The food has improved greatly from last year. being coeliac they cooked special food for me on request which were very tasty. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable especially with the air condition going. The hotel is wheelchair friendly. The entertainment team Mark, Natalie, Olivia, Ashleigh, Paige were BRILLIANT they made our holiday for us. All the shows they put on were great fun and really professional. The Aqua aerobics was really fun , as was water polo. They worked so hard to ensure people had a great time. In TsilivÃs there are a lot of nice taverna's as well as a variety of shops and a beach. We will be going back again next year. Best holiday ever.More
We stayed in this smallish hotel for 1 week. We were upgraded to a executive suite which was a lovely. Very large double bed plus a sofa which made up if necessary to a large bed. We did not bother as there were only the two of us. All shower and body creams are provided, plus dressing gowns and slippers. Also the hairdryer was excellent - so ladies no need to take your hairdryer. oh there were no tissues. We had a patio area with 2 comfortable chairs and a wicker type table. On from that is our little garden bit there were 2 sunbeds. The beach was quite small and pebbley but we brought rubber beach shoes from the shop, which is outside the main entrance, turn right, for 10 euros which did the job well. Water was fine I'm a bit slow at getting in water which is not bath temperature but even I manage, and when in it was good. The swimming pools were much warmer and lovely to swim in. One was very large and the other an infinity one. All beautiful and clean. There was a pool bar and cafÃ© which provided snacks. The main restaurant provided all sorts of lovely food. Something to please everyone. The white wine was acceptable, however the cava was very sweet so not for me. Didn't do any activities or shows so cannot comment. The one down side was the sunbeds.....there was a large notice saying 'do not reserve sunbeds' but same old story everyone did.....Except us. Why doesn't the hotel employ a person to start work at 6am and tell people that they cannot reserve beds unless their body is on it. This would sort out the problem one and for all. However do not let this put you off because we use to drag 2 sunbeds onto the beach and although we had no shade there were trees which we could move our beds too when we wanted. Oh also the gardens were beautiful with lovely flowers even roses.More
My friend and I stayed at this hotel for two weeks, and it was fantastic. The hotel is very nice, and it's perfect for an relaxing holiday. It's quiet around the hotel, but just a 5 min drive from Tsilivi, so it's possible to go out or do some shopping there. The service in this hotel is really good! They always comes around and askes if you want something to drink, and everyone is very friendly. The guy who worked in the bar during the meals always rememberd what we liked to drink, so it was very nice when he came to surprise us with drinks, both during dinner and by the pool. We also want to say an extra thank you to the lifeguards, Rimi and Elerto. They were very helpful, gave us tips, and made it fun around the pools. Also Stella at the spa - she's amazing. We went to get a spa treatment our first day, and she's so good we booked much more treatments than planned, and it was absolute worth it. We would without doubt go back to this hotel :-)More
