This place might be surrounded by beach and forest, but it’s within easy reach of shops, bars and restaurants, too.
This hotel is on Zante’s longest beach, a sandy stretch backed by a pretty pine forest. There’s a big pool just steps from the sands, so you get sea views while you swim, and children get a giant pirate-ship play area.
For evening meals, you’ve got 2 restaurants, including an Asian buffet restaurant. And for more options, you’re just a 10-minute walk from Laganas’ bars and restaurants, while Zante Town is a 5-minute drive along the coast.

We came to the Louis Zante from 26th July to 2nd Aug me my two children and my mum. From the outside it may not look like much but it really is a lovely hotel. The rooms are cleaned daily to a high standard, although they do need some updating. The all inclusive is amazing the food is fresh each day and very tasty. The staff In the restaurant work very hard and nothing is too much trouble for them. The hotel is right next to the beach and the beach is lovely and clean. The water is very warm and clear and shallow. The pool is a good size and the evening entertainment was really good! Laganas resort is a bit on the rough side. They do some good trips recommended. Thank you for a great stay More
We were greeted by very friendly Reception staff and our room was ready when we arrived. The food at this hotel is excellent, we spent 10 days here and never tired of the food it was different each evening. Also the Oriental Resturant is excellent, we visited twice during our stay and each time the menu was slightly different. I would recommend you take advantage of visiting this resturant as the food was outstanding. All the staff are friendly and when you are eating at any of the bars your plates are cleared away as soon as you are finished. The drinks were good too, the beer a little weak but if you have cocktails at the bar above the pool bar then they are pretty strong and also provided in proper glasses and not plastic beakers. The rooms are clean and adequate although a bit dated. It would have been nice to have a full length mirror in the room. The entertainment team are professional dancers and each night the show was fantastic. Best entertainment I have had in a Thompson hotel. Rual, Christina and Diana are especially good. The pool is OK but would benefit from rules not allowing lilos in the pool as this restricts the space to swim. I think the hotel would benefit from another pool. The beach is superb lovely sandy beach and the sea you can walk out for a long way before being out of your depth. Extremely safe for young children. The sea is warm and clear. You can also watch the regular planes coming in to land while you are in the sea as they land just down the end of the beach. Watch out for where the turtles have laid their eggs as they are all along the beach. You can walk along the beach to Laganas but unless you are 18 to 22 years old I would stay well away. If you walk the other way though to Kalamacki then it is definitely worth the walk much quieter and nice shops and traverners. We didn't spend much money as we never felt the need to eat out due to the great meals we were receiving at the hotel. We hired a car and went around the Island for the day and it is beautiful. However, I never saw a hotel in such a fantastic position as the Louis Zante Beach Hotel. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend this hotel.More
We spent a week here in late July. After a long flight delay we were initially told room was not ready, but this very quickly changed. We were shown to a room in the main building. The room was quite small with a double bed and bunk beds which converted from a sofa. A big problem was the air conditioning which was hit and miss, the patio door had to be closed to work, but this was very temperamental and a bit annoying, even after the engineer came to the room we still had issues. The food was excellent! Two members of my family are vegetarians and they enjoyed the buffet very much, as did the the meat eaters. Lots of variety, cooked well and tasty. The wine was excellent, you are able to fill carafes yourself from a choice of red, white and rose. You are also able to help yourself to the very good draft lager, in pint glasses! Water can be an issue. A 1.5 litre bottle is put in your room each day by housekeeping. But the rest of the time you need to rely on water coolers of which I saw 4 around the complex. One recommendation would be is to supply bottled water. It was so hot and is really needed. The grounds are very well kept and the gardeners and cleaners work hard to keep it that way. The pool is nice albeit a bit small - sometimes difficult to get sunbeds usual problem of lots of towels and no one using them, very frustrating. Entertainment: what a hard working bunch of young people, their energy is astounding particularly Christina and Diana. Lots of activities during the day and they also provide singing and dancing in the evening - although they were good, it was all a bit amateur and the hotel should invest in some outside acts to come and add to the entertainment. Don't want to take anything away from the animation team, they are great but some professional acts would just add to the experience. The beach is not actually part of the complex but have direct access. The sea is shallow warm clear and calm. You can walk out very far without getting out of your depth, great for kids. If you are lucky you may just see a turtle. The hotel is about half a mile up the beach from Laganas itself, it is not really worth going to unless you are 18-30 looking for a party. I went for a jog there one morning- smelled like vomit and stale alcohol. The hotel is the last hotel along the beach and you see very little of the party crowd. Excursions: we went to Shipwreck beach, and turtle spotting. We used My Tours - I would not recommend this company- it is pack em in tight. There was some confusion about our pick up spot for a trip and we missed our coach although we were waiting the company wanted to charge us another â¬10 each to rebook saying it was our fault. I managed to sort this out. But when we did eventually go on the way back the coach driver missed our hotel and wouldn't drive back. I would visit zante again but would avoid "MyTours" for excursions. All in all we had a lovely holiday with a couple of minor issues. Summary: Food good, beach amazing, entertainment ok. Pool ok. Drinks very good, all staff were fantastic. Air conditioning could be better. We would visit again, and I recommend this hotel to families, couples, and friends. More
If you want to just relax and soak up the sun and chill out as a family then you could not be in a better place.The location is ideal as you get the benefit of a large pool with plenty of sun beds and the beautiful warm water of the sea on your door step. We stayed in the main hotel building with a fantastic sea view. Our room was basic but spotless cleaned everyday by very friendly maids . The food was your typical all inclusive menu of pork chicken and lamb with just a couple of types of fish The area outside the hotel in Laganas (The Strip) is suited for 17 to 23 who want to party all night long. My daughter who travelled with us thought she was to old at 23!!!!!!! The staff at the hotel are all brilliant and work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The only down side of the hotel was the evening entertainment was very poor compared to many 4* star hotels I have stayed in and most people we spoke to only went to watch it because there was nothing else to do. The Wifi was brilliant in many areas of the hotel.More
