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.

The staff make this hotel 5*
We had a fantastic holiday and this hotel is definitely somewhere I would recommend and visit again. The thing that makes the hotel 5* is it's staff, genuinely have never been so looked after and welcomed in a hotel. The staff can literally made our holiday and they are an asset to this resort. The location is a bit out of the way but it is a short taxi ride into The nearby town and it is worth a visit, even just for a Change of scenery. If you do visit Tsvilli the The Halfway House restaurant was fantastic. Slightly quiet when we went however it was out of season. I would say one week would be enough even though the hotel is fantastic. Food and drinks were brilliant always something to choose from and a great selection. The theme nights are great and shake it up a bit. The hotel has a boutique style feel to it and very modern and the food compliments this so don't expect pizza and burgers for dinner as it is more up market than that. Rooms very modern and clean and tidy. No complaints. Pool was great, great music during the day and even though we were out of season and the reps had went home the hotel staff still provided games and activities to keep guests amused. Trips I would not book through Thomson we went into Tsvilli and got a trip booked with Nefis travel and what a fantastic day!! We got a full day out visiting the shipwreck, the caves and the sulphur beach for â¬30pp as opposed to only seeing the shipwreck beach with Thomsons which is only Half a day and is â¬40 pp. Nefis travels are true professionals and know the island inside out so don't waste money by booking through the rep. To make this hotel even better I would suggest: Having all drinks all inclusive I think it's a bit naughty to have some drinks on the menu and a charge for others when the majority of the time the drinks that are not included have the same ingredients just in a different order. The a la carte - again any all inclusive resort I have ever been to has an a la carte and I have never had to pay for it. Give guests one visit a week and it will shake it up from the buffet and would be a good change rather than let guests to go out with the hotel. Tennis - we like to play sports when we go away and we booked this and then decided against it when we had to pay â¬10 for the equipment ...who brings equipment on holiday with them especially tennis rackets?? Even if it was a â¬10 deposit I would understand but why have the courts if your not going to get the use. All inclusive is supposed to be that. Overall a few things could be changed to make this hotel stand out but between the staff, and the management you can tell they want to make this hotel a success and care very much about it. We will hopefully be back again in the future. More

Lovely hotel, lovely food and lovely atmosphere! If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in Zante then definitely consider this hotel. Whilst you're there give the Spa a try as it was brilliant, I had the Polynesian Massage and would recommend it time and time again. The only downfall was that I emailed the hotel after we left about a missing drivers licence and haven't had a response from them yet... More

We have just returned from a great week of relaxation at the Eleon. The negative comments from previous reviews do not reflect anything that we saw or had in anyway. Service was great, food was great, drinks flowed and were great, the pools were great as was the beach area! No problems getting a sunbed wether you wanted to be by the beach or pool. Our room was superb and the maid checked our room at least three times a day. We didn't have enough tea and milk, told reception within 5 minutes the maid was there with plenty! The view from our room was lovely across to the neighbouring island of kefalonia especially the nights we had lightening storms out at sea, it was spectacular!! Everything was sparkling clean from the reception to the restaurants! The spa was great and especially the back massage, highly recommend a visit. Maria makes you very welcome and is very pleasant!More
We have just returned from our Holiday on Zakynthos. The hotel is very clean, just as the pools. The staff is very friendly and obliging. Also the kitchen really convinced (a lot of typical greek meals). Many cocktails were included as well, however I would recommend to try at least one mojito mixed by the barman Ektoras - never had a better cocktail before ðð¼ More
Definitely recommend this hotel
We stayed at the Eleon from 18th-25th September and wish we could have had another week. Right from the start, with a simplified check in procedure, we felt as if we were on holiday and so were able to relax alot quicker. The staff were very friendly, liked our few Greek words we'd learnt and very helpful, whether it was the manager or the maid who brought the clean towels. We had a superior room in block 6 which was spacious, nice patio to sit out at and had alot more storage space than we have had in previous similar hotels. The bed was so comfortable, no asking for extra padding on top of the rock hard mattress this time. For anyone who prefers to settle down early, avoid the outlying blocks, they are near the outside entertainment stage and the noise may disurb you. This also applies to guests who stay on to talk loudly into the early hours of the morning. The food was lovely, all cooked well and for a change, the puddings tasted of what they were supposed to be rather than the bland sweetness of other hotels. The baklava has to be particularly recommended, oozing with honey, available for lunch and evening meals. Dress code for men is either long trousers or dress shorts and no "short" shorts for ladies. We would recommend eating later if people want a quieter meal as there are families at the hotel. Everywhere was kept clean, the poolsides again were so much better than we'd experienced previously. The entertainment was ok and we got as much out of it as we wanted. Nice little extras were brought round, including chopped melon and grapefruit juice, and a daily 11.30-12.30 treat was to be had next to the pool bar. Tipping is left to the end of the holiday, leave in the room for the maid, pass on either to the section manager to be pooled or to an individual direct if you have a favourite. Wifi is free and available in all parts of the hotel. If you're staying in one of the outlying blocks and it's raining, ring reception and they'll arrange transport for you to the main block. We went on a day excursion, Secrets of Zante, round the island and felt it was good value for money. We didn't use the spa area so I cant comment on that. We met the manager as well as other senior staff at the cocktail evening and would highly recommend people taking this invite up. It gave us a chance to get to know them better and to find out that they take guests concerns very seriously. The manager told us that he wanted to know what guests thought the hotel was doing right and wrong, what was missing, what could be improved etc. We all agreed that, if guests did have complaints, it was better to sort them out at the time, rather than complaining through their review here. When I read previous reviews, I could see that the guests who had complained (or dare I say moaned), didn't really have anything substantive to complain about, it could all have been put right at the time. They were in the minority though with alot more positive comments to be read. Given the opportunity I would certainly come back to this hotel and cant recommnd it highly enough.More
