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.

Great if you have a sweet tooth (which I do!!)
I have to admit when my husband and I initially arrived at this hotel we were a little disappointed. I think the high number of 5 star rated reviews had overinflated our expectations (& in comparison with other similar hotels we've stayed in - on first look). However initial impressions aren't always a true reflection as we started to find out as we got into our stay. The staff here are friendly & helpful. Restaurant staff particularly go out their way to make guests feel welcome. The food is fantastic with a different theme each evening in the main restaurant. I have to say the BEST DESSERT selection we have EVER come across at an all inclusive resort. Usually dessert is the bit that AI resorts lack in so I never expect much but not at this hotel! Esp loved the cream cakes (the cookie & the strawberry ones!!) The Meze experience was lovely - an authentic Greek experience. Very good choice of cocktails, soft drinks, hot drinks. However, the red wine was not to my taste - the refridgerated machine it came out of was cold which didn't feel right. Beer was good though & you get proper red wine in the Meze. Bottled drinking water supplied in the room and refreshed daily (nice touch). Kettle & tea & coffee also supplied as well as shower gel & hand wash. Lovely setting for the snack bar overlooking the beach. Everywhere is spotless, rooms cleaned every day, gardens around the hotel very pretty & well maintained. Table tennis (free) & pool tables (2 euros) on site. Activities like aqua aerobics, beach volley ball, darts going on all day except for Monday's which is the entertainment teams day off. There is a pirate ship play park in the centre of the grounds which would be great for kids. Small library in the reps greeting area if you run out of books. The areas for improvement are: The room was very small, bathroom worn & dated (but beds were comfortable). Only one (not big) pool & baby pool for a very large hotel - it's surprising because there's a lot of space in the grounds. It was a good shape for swimming lengths when quiet though. Gym in very poor repair with majority of cardio machines broken (some are not really safe to use) and nothing to fix the weights onto the bar. Also there is a smoking area directly outside the gym (the front of the gym area is all open) - Really didn't appreciate breathing in cigarette smoke when trying to do a healthy work out!! There are lots of smoking areas throughout the hotel, think the hotel should consider making this small bit none smoking. We read the comments re paying for the safe in other people's reviews before we went so we didn't take any valuables so we didn't have to use (thank you reviewers!). Agree with other reviewers the price per day is cheeky! We didn't go to any of the evening entertainment because it is all outside & in October the temperature really drops at night. It may be that this is the only month where it is an issue (so limited benefit in changing) but all the other hotels we've been too had an indoor area for evening entertainment for the months where it's cooler so it's never been a noticed problem before. Same for dining, there isn't much indoor seating so everyone was back in their coats, scarfs & travelling clothes at dinner! LOCATION & Places to visit: hotel is right on the beach. Sea is warm, shallow & clear. If you look carefully there are a fair few starfish. Beach stretches for miles. Lovely but littered with rubbish & cigarette butts - it's a shame there are people that take no responsibility for the environment (or others enjoying it). Walk right out of the hotel and you'll reach Laganas, left towards Kalamaki, both a bit gaudy (not really for us but stuff going on if that's what you like). We hired an open top jeep from 'Euro hire.' So much fun. Better price (We paid 60 Euros for 2 day hire) if you book online and you still collect from the guy at reception so it's convenient. We went to Zante town and Bohali castle (beautiful locations and views). These were only 20 minutes away. We drove to the viewing point for shipwreck beach at the top of the island - worth a look & nice pathways/ views from the cliffs here. We also went to 'Fantasy Mini Golf' in Tsvilli which was lots of fun. On the last day we went on a 3 stop turtle spotting, Marathonisi beach, blue caves speedboat tour with Yellow Submarine. The company gets poor reviews in peak season but actually at end of season we found it fantastic value at 30 Euros (inc pick up) - esp with a speed boat & captain all to ourselves. He also dropped us back directly on the beach outside the hotel. I have reviewed separately. You can also walk past Laganas to the port and Cameo island (takes 50 mins each way). Cameo island is a pretty spot. Unfortunately there was a wedding on the day we went so we paid 5 Euros each to enter the island but most of it was off limits. There was a drink in with the price though & it's a nice viewpoint from the bar. Overall very pleasant stay and good value for 10 days (esp as our taxi to & from the airport was inc in our holiday package). More
Overpriced and highly disappointing
I am writing this review whilst still at the hotel awaiting our home-bound transfer on 29th Sept 17. I have spent a week here with a friend and will try and provide a balanced review on behalf of both of us. Pros - The exterior hotel grounds and hotel reception/lobby/bar areas are nicely presented and well-maintained, the beach is nice and very close by. The hotel location is good (in terms of being a good distance away from the noisy and dirty club strip and other hotels but close enough to walk to shops, etc). Cons (unfortunately a much longer list) - There is absolutely no way that this hotel can be described as four star or "premier". The foyer and gardens may be nicely presented but clearly that it is where the money has been spent and continues to be used. I visited for what was supposed to be a relaxing break to celebrate my birthday in a somewhat luxurious fashion. We ending up feeling as if we may as well have stayed in the UK and gone to Butlins or Pontins. We were allocated a room in a chalet-type building away from the main hotel with a sea glimpse, rather than a sea view as chosen by us upon booking. To say the room was basic is being kind. It was not well-kept or particularly clean and the walls so paper-thin that we could hear people om the next room talking. The tiny twin beds were rock hard with sheets like sandpaper that crunched every time you moved. The extractor fan did not work in the bathroom (this was reported and we were told there was nothing that could be done) and the bath plug was clogged with so much muck so that the water didn't drain away when showering (removed after complaining twice at reception). We then had the fun experience of the door handle on the inside of the room coming away in my friend's hand, so that we couldn't get out. We then discovered that the phone in the room wasn't working either to call reception. We eventually got the door handle to latch on enough to open the door and this and the phone were then fixed once I had been to reception. There didn't seem to be much shock or suprise when reporting these things. I very much got the impression that this is par for the course there. I asked about changing/upgrading our room but at 20 Euros per night to do so, we politely declined! Our other huge gripe is that this hotel is pitched as all inclusive. Three Euros fifty per day to use the room safe???! A lot of the drinks at the bar were not included, and the prices to buy those not included were ridiculous. The alcoholic drinks were very obviously watered down and the "juice" was actually overly sweet squash. We were asked to pay a refundable deposit of ten Euros for the beach towels, which we thought was fair, until we found that we were only allowed to change them every three days - they smelt and felt lovely after that amount of time as you can imagine. We also had to pay 4 Euros each in order to use sunbeds on the beach. It was the same money-saving story with room, with towels and sheets only being changed every three days. We were supposed to receive bottled water in our room every day, but had to ask at reception each evening, as it was never left in the room bar the bottle that was there when we arrived. The food at the morning and lunchtime buffets was fine, but as for the evening it was appalling. Bland, soggy and luke-warm with nothing going together - like a really bad, left-over school dinner. We gave up on the dinners after a delightful night of vomiting and diarrhoea three days in and ate out instead, costing even more money. I would also like to mention the evening "entertainment". This consisted of a team of the same three-five people putting on essentially the same show of "comedy" acts and dancing each night, lastly for only around 45 mins at the pool bar on a cobbled-together stage, and was very much pitched at kids. There was absolutely nothing else put on for adults to do or watch. In the lobby bar there wasn't even any background music, and unless you are 18 and want to go clubbing there is nothing to do nearby in Laganas either as an alternative other than eat. We travelled to the next resort along of Kalamaki which seemed much more pleasant and would recommend it. Bar the food and drink issue we would have made do with everything else had we paid significantly less for the holiday, which was almost £1500 in total for two, not including the money we then spent eating out. Everything felt very low-rent and as if the hotel was looking to save money in every area. I understand the financial crisis in Greece has probably hit the hotel and tourist market hard, but if a hotel is unable to meet standards because of this then the star rating and description need to be altered and advertised accordingly, both by the hotel and travel agent (Tui). I really feel like we were mis-sold this holiday and so wish that we had spent £1500 going elsewhere, which we would have done had we been better informed. This trip should be priced at around £1000 total maximum and the hotel listed as "budget" as per some other Louis hotels. So all in all had we paid less for this holiday we may have been less disappointed/more understanding. This is nothing close to a four star hotel, and shouldn't be advertised as such. We are both puzzled by all of the five star reviews on Trip Advisor! More

After our 9th visit to louis zante beach, I cannot say anything bad about this hotel. What can i say about a hotel that will do anything to make you stay as comfortable as possible.Ok when you enter reception lenny is chopping at the bit,He knows what room number we have so he waits to confirm it is ready.Bags taken upstairs by him we head to the pool bar , Here you will find the most helpfull staff who will fill your glass with what you require .Many drinks we have converted over the years so its what you like.The pool like others say is on the small side But as the sea is 3 mins from the pool. I cannot see why you would worry about it Just my opinion lol.The grounds are kept in superb condition, Many people take sunbeds across the gardens to suit their needs, If you would incur any issues then go to reception. They we always do the best they can to resolve anything that crops up, I find some people will say i had this and that ?? Don't be afraid to complain because the hotel would rather you be happy and approach them with any issues.Yes people say ahh the rooms are outdated we cannot get english tv, Sorry but you are in Greece !!! I try and ask to improve my greek with the staff But they speak better English than my greek lol Entertainment is not always to everybody's standard But the team will always try to make your holiday special, Even if you do not want to join in they would come around for a chat. Alex "jaun" is like the pied piper Kids take to him lol I Cannot thank makis, katrina, And all the staff for making this hotel such a great place to come to RELAX.The Food and DESSERTS , Well what could i say if you cannot find something you like then you must be very fussy. I could BANG on about how good this hotel is But then again my wife and I are Already looking forward to our 10TH visit to LOUIS ZANTE BEACH.I ask you to visit to leave your COMMENTS.More
My husband and I and my 20 year old son returned last night from a fabulous holiday already depressed we are back! As a regular reviewer I can 100% guarantee this beautiful resort. All staff are very friendly and hard working and the entertainment staff Alex? Christina and Nella especially friendly! Food was superb unfortunately did not go to the Meze as my family are fussy! But definitely need to exercise now! Everything you could have wanted. The snacks in the bar in the evenings a lovely touch not seen before! I think if you are shown to a table when you arrive for dinner would be ideal and that’s all that was missing. We had a superior bungalow to the front of beach and in my eyes the best spot! Only thing I can say is that do not think this was best for my son as it was a small single bed which he fell out of a few times! Also partition is just a net curtain so no privacy. Perfect for young children. But the cleaning was spotless! We took a boat trip for the day around island and a boat trip from the beach both fantastic! We saw one Greek dancing show and other then that the entertainment team put on shows and quizzes. I feel the bar area in the evenings could do with some light music as needed touch of atmosphere! Only downside to our holiday was my husband losing his wedding ring on his birthday! I must also thank the staff for the drink and fruit left on the occasion. I never like to repeat the same holiday but this hotel may have changed my mind. But would not like to go at peak times. Thanks to all the staff fabulous hotelMore
Fantastic holiday at this hotel
We have just returned from a week at this lovely hotel. From the time we arrived everything was perfect. The food couldn't be faulted the hotel itself was well looked after and comfortable we would definitely stay there again. Would like to especially like to mention Koustos, the maitre de in the restaurant who couldn't do enough for us, Tauland who served in the restaurant and the lounge very pleasant and helpful, Arthur in the Meze restaurant which was a night to remember. Also the entertainment team and the pool staff were brilliant. In fact everyone was really hardworking and helpful. I went with my husband and our two sisters but this would suit any age. A lovely holiday one of the nicest east we have stayed in.More
