Sea View room well worth paying the extra for, beautiful views of the lovely pools and the gorgeous sea. Room was modern and clean and the bed was huge and comfortable. Free air conditioning and safe. Listened to radio 2 on the internet tv, but it did keep buffering. Entertainment, was sparse considering its location on the outskirts of tsilivi, and a hotel of that size. Choice of food in the restaurant was excellent and yummy, and we got to try several dishes that we had never had before (cuttlefish and rabbit!) but don't worry there was lots of chicken/pork/lamb too. Only downside is that we did go out a couple of times as sometimes it is nice to be served your meal rather than self-service. Sunbeds.......we did not get involved in the sunbed situation, as knew it would piss us off big time, instead we went to the little beach beside the waterslides, the sea was warmer than the pools and we did a bit of snorkelling and saw lots of wee fishes. The staff often passed to collect glasses, so were also able to order a drink and ice cream! oh how I miss that. Later on in the week found a sandy beach with free sunbeds (providing you buy a drink, which is brought to you also ) it was at the ambula? restaurant, which is only a 5 min walk. We really think that the hotel really should do something about the sunbed situation, its embarrassing. Staff we found helpful and pleasant, no problems at all. Would we go back? yes, but in September again, there was approx. 400 people and a fair few pre-school kids. July/August I believe it's 600 people with 200 school kids.More

Lovely hotel, shame about the sun bed situation
We spent the last 2 weeks of the summer holidays at this hotel, and overall it was a lovely holiday. Deluxe Sea View room was clean and had a wonderful view. There is only one main restaurant, but the food choices were excellent with theme nights. The hotel could improve it's star rating by getting control of the sun bed/towel situation. It was ridiculous having to reserve your bed by 7am, and even then it doesn't guarantee that the sun beds had not been taken over by other guests (yes this did happen to us). We went on the Smugglers Cove/Blue Caves/Xigia Bay tour with a private tour company (Nefis Travel) for 29 Euros. Great trip. On the beach well before the big tours swarmed onto it. Definitely hire a car and go over to the west of the island. The big towns are not worth visiting. Tourism has unfortunately ruined them. The hotel could improve the gym facilities by putting proper air conditioning and soundproofing it from kids playing on the pool tables next door, another area that could do with some better lighting. Saying all that, the staff were excellent. We did all enjoy the holiday, but wouldn't go back there. Too many other places to see.More
Sun Bed Wars By The Sea
I’m not sure why I am bothering with this review as it is much the same as many others. Lovely hotel, dreadful sunbed situation. If you haven’t reserved a sunbed you will not get one after 8:00 a.m. We came across a Belgian family, two adults and a child who complained that their six towels had been stolen. They put out two sets of three towels so that their son could decide where to sit! Food is very good although there is only one very busy restaurant and you often felt as though you were being rushed. On a few occasions our table was completely cleared in between courses. Entertainment provided by Jack and the girls is O.K. The kids especially loved the evening entertainment which is at a separate bar and stage away from the main hotel where the entertainment was provided by singers, guitarists etc. During the day there is beach boules, water polo and volleyball, pool zumba etc. It is pretty low key, good fun and you don’t feel bullied into it. Mercifully, there was not incessant loud music around the pool. Happy hour finishes at 11:00 p.m. and not much happens after that. Drinks are reasonably priced – 5 star metaxa at 3 euros. During the day you may help yourself to soft drinks and beer ( zorba’s beer 3.8%, whoever has heard of that?) All in all we had a lovely holiday but would not return simply because of the sun bed situation. This may seem like a poor reason but you have to see it to believe it. There were a few instances of arguments breaking out and people close to blows.More
A real eye opener! :)
First of all... we shall use one word to describe our stay at the Eleon Grand - WOW!! My girlfriend and I returned home on Tuesday and haven't once stopped talking or thinking about our time in Zante. We stayed at the Eleon Grand for 11 nights and couldn't have been happier with the quality of our stay. The hotel itself was simply stunning - modern yet full of character. The Eleon Grand is in a perfect location - on the beach front which almost always had sun loungers free to use. If no loungers were available on the beach, we had the freedom of grabbing other loungers and taking them onto the beach. So don't let reviews put you off which say there aren't enough loungers. We were spoilt for choice :) In terms of location for nightlife we couldn't fault this either, 5 minutes in a taxi from the lively town of Tsilivi which cost 7 Euros. The extremely friendly hotel staff had no problems in organising taxis throughout the day. In Tsilivi we would recommend Two Brothers cocktail bar for a lively entertaining night and Giorgios restaurant for a touch of Greek class. Even if our review doesn't tempt you in, Mr Giorgio himself will! A 5 minute walk from the Eleon in Tragaki is the Paradiso cocktail bar, which in our opinion made the best cocktails around! A small bar with lots of character and an extremely friendly owner, who made it for us! What a guy... Best Mojitos in Zante - thats all I'm saying! Overall...what a fantastic holiday, we will definitely be returning! P.s. The choice of food is incredible!More

Perfect beach hotel (almost without a beach)
We just came home from 7 days stay in Eleon, and it is time to review. The overall feeling was great, although there were some things which we did not like so much. Hotel has a great location at the sea, but there is actualy not a real beach. The beach is very very short, stony/sandy and the access to the sea is far from perfect. However, the sea there is warm, very nice, very clear, having beautiful color. So if you love lying, playing, running on the beach, it was not possible here. And the beach and the sea is the main reason why we traveled such a distance. The food was really great, one of the finest I have ever experienced in all-inclusive hotel. Rich choice of fresh salads, fruits, vegetables, and delicious cakes and cookies. Nothing to point here, really. Services were really great, all the personnel was very helpful, nice and friendly. We had a little baby, all the hotel staff made their best to make our stay most comfortable. Special thanks to great services of Polish students. But what could be much better are the animations. The animation team from UK was very friendly, but every night a loud karaoke show with some dancing, next to our room, that almost killed us. Some change in the program would be really appreciated. Animations during the day were much better, although some improvement would be good as well. However, the overall feeling from our holiday was really great.More
