Hotel Louis Zante Beach

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.

They're similar to a small apartment block and are in blocks of 6 - there's 3 on the ground floor and 3 on the first floor. And just so you know, they're a short walk from the main hotel making them unsuitable for those with walking difficulties.

Superb Location

You enter the hotel from the main road down a private drive, giving the hotel a secluded feel. Yet you are only 10 mins walk away from the bars, clubs, restaurants and shops and the strip. There is also a bus stop on the main road outside the hotel to visit Zante Town for 1.60 euros. The hotel is well laid out with spacious grounds with lawns and flower beds leading down to the sandy beach and the warm shallow waters of the sea. With plenty of sun beds and parasols available round the pool and on the lawned areas. We had a sea view room in the annex bungalow blocks. A spacious room with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge with water provided daily. The annex blocks are on two floors the top floors a balcony with table and chairs. The bottom floor leads directly on to the lawn but as two sun beds as well as the table and chairs. Ideal if you are a sun worshiper. The food is varied and excellent. And you help yourself to Wine, Lager or Soft Drinks. With indoor and outdoor seating in the restaurant. The staff are very friendly, efficient and polite. Especially the drinks waitresses on the bar terrace and our room maid, who was first class. Our only complaint. A 4* hotel in 2015 charging for Wi-Fi when you can get it free at the bars lower down the beach. We stayed at the Louis Imperial Beach in Cyprus in 2013 and they had free Wi-Fi in the main foyer area.More

Two great assets are location and quality of staff

We have just returned from a two week stay at Louis Zante Beach hotel.. We did request two adjoining rooms in a quiet location in the main building and this is exactly where we were located. We were at the front of the hotel over the main entrance and the rooms were very quiet. Ok so we did not have a much coveted sea view but we believe the bedroom is for sleeping only… The rooms were a bit dated but they were kept immaculately clean with bedding and towels changed regularly. Indeed the whole hotel and grounds were immaculate with only the toilets at the beach bar requiring perhaps a little more attention. Like most new quests I was shocked to learn that there was a charge for WiFi and also a charge for use of the safe installed in the bedroom. To use both facilities would increase the cost of what is supposed to be ‘all inclusive’ holiday by 97.50 euros for two weeks. I am fully aware that many people do return to this hotel year after year but the manager must realise that by making these charges he is antagonising his new clients. He should know that Louis Hotel’s great competitor Grecotels make no such charges Having said that I do understand and accept the charges made for the use of sunbeds on the beach as the great bulk of funds raised is donated to the Wild Life Trust that monitors the laying of eggs on the beach by the Loggerhead turtles. I did not feel that the swimming pool was too small. It measures roughly 20m x 7m which should be big enough but I must say it was very difficult to swim in it as more often than not it was filled with youngsters having a great time on their inflatables or there were groups of adults playing with balls. The pool was certainly very popular and I was delighted to see that there was always a life guard on duty. This is something I have never experienced anywhere else in Europe so I applaud Louis Hotels and award 10/10 for this vital security precaution. Something else very positive about this hotel was that it was very disability friendly in that there were many sloping walkways as an alternative to steps. I am of course aware that this is also push chair friendly and there were many small children present during our stay; indeed there were guests of all ages and also numerous different nationalities with perhaps the British being the largest group. The animation team were the organisers of daytime activities and they were mostly from the east European countries and they were a remarkable bunch of people. Always very friendly and certainly enthusiastic, they organised clients into various sporting activities but if you didn’t want to get involved they were happy to leave you alone. We did find though that those activities that required musical support , that the music was far too loud. There were, very often, only between 6 and 10 people doing either aerobics or aqua aerobics yet these activities required music that could be heard some 40m away. The animation team were also the evening entertainment team but I gather that whilst full of enthusiasm, they were not that good. Whether dining in the main restaurant or just outside, the waiter service was excellent in that plates were cleared from the table immediately you had finished a particular course and perhaps the main reason for this is that any uneaten food is quickly attacked by small birds who are quite adventurous. Breakfasts were superb with the usual array of cereals, fresh and tinned fruits, salads with cheeses and cold meats. Excellent cooked breakfasts with omelettes to order. There were also both warm and cold croissants and cake. We usually avoid lunch but we did occasionally sample lunch in both the main restaurant and at the Beach Bar. Far more than just a snack but if you just felt like a slice of pizza, then so be it. Dinner was buffet style service and there was the usual selection of courses with a good range of main courses which were quite tasty and good but not outstanding. Show cooking apart from a twice weekly barbeque, ought to be renamed carvery because that is precisely what it was. A different joint of meat carved to order each day but with some strange sauces. I would have thought mint sauce more appropriate for lamb and maybe apple sauce for pork. Certainly mustard sauce for turkey was not a match. For the first time we experienced serve yourselves with drinks for breakfast and dinner. There were 3 wines Red, White and Rose. I tasted both the Red and the White and found them to be reasonable house wines. I am not a lager drinker so the Zorba beer was not to my taste but as a strong real ale drinker I would say that Zorba is not a weak beer and I would guess it is about 5%. Our weather was very hot and we often decided to take time out of the sun and our favourite place was the covered outdoor lounge close to the restaurant. It was so easy to pop into the restaurant to help one self to water coffee soft drinks or beer without having to seek out a waiter We dined at the Asian restaurant on two occasions and experienced a Japanese sushi starter with a choice of Chinese main courses. It was excellent as were the wines. I must say that over the years Greek wines have improved considerably and certainly since they sought advice from the Australians. The two main assets of the hotel are it’s splendid location right on the beach but on the edge of town certainly far enough away from ‘the strip’ to be totally unaware of the very noisy night time/early morning activities taking place. The other main asset is undoubtedly the quality of the staff and I have to say ALL the staff. They were always very friendly, very efficient and their standard response to you whenever you thanked them was ‘ you are welcome’ and you knew that you really were welcome!!! Praise such as this can only reflect on the man in charge and like most quests I spotted the manager on many occasions touring his hotel and the grounds, making sure that everything was just right. He must walk some 10k per day. Well done!! We enjoyed our stay very much and we have no difficulty in recommending this hotel to all.More

Extremely friendly hotel, especially the porter and receptionists, not for young ones expecting lively hotel

When we arrived at Louis zante beach we had paid for superior double room with sea view. We were put into chalets on ground floor, cockroaches on an evening and lots of ants in bathroom..so I am sorry to say that this was not a relaxing beginning to a fortnight away that we had paid extra for, expecting a superior room with excellent views. But please read on....However, I cannot fault hotel receptionists, who were extremely helpful and understanding when I asked to be moved into main building, as I was uncomfortable in accommodation allocated to us. The hotels friendly porter even came to help move our cases. We arrived on a Sunday we complained on the Monday morning, and by Tuesday we had been relocated to a lovely room in main building with a view of the pool looking out to the sea..Room apart, the food was plentiful varied and delicious, staff in restaurant worked extremely hard and at all times extremely helpful and friendlly. the entertainment was very very basic..Michael Jackson show...well he could dance like him.........the best show I thought and I give excellent credit to the choreographer was the traditional dancing across the world show..If you want to leave hotel of an evening, Kalamaki is 6euro in taxi,various restaurants, bars to choose from, and a lovely area with plenty of taxis available when you head back.. The beach is on hotel doorstep, worth 4euro for sunbed with hotel restaurant/snack bar/bar all still at hand. Turn right onto beach and stroll into Laganas or turn left towards Kalamaki. We hired quad bike and came across some lovely coves we wouldn't of came to. We hired motor boat, and a speed boat had fun on banana boat, pedallo, went on fun train, rode in horse and carriage at times instead of getting taxi for just a few euros more.seen turtles,smugglers cove,amazing blue caves, turtle island, went to tavernas in mountains,experienced the strip,walked across to the island, had quiet days and hectic days,went into Zante town, went to St Nicholas beach,amazing day.toured the whole island..apart from an uncertain first day or two accomodation wise, overall we had an amazing time, hotel is at very end of Laganas the last hotel, so a taxi is a must late evening. I can't remember the porters name, but over and above everyone in hotel he was an amazing helpful friendly person, who always had time for my husband and myself, even giving us an acknowledgement when away from hotel when seeing him away from his working environment, an asset to Louis Zante Beach !!!!More

Simply Amazing

One of the best hotels I have been to, spotlessly clean, well maintained hotel, helpful and friendly staff, excellent food and drink choice's, something for everyone, great location - only 10 min walk from 'the strip' if you want to go clubbing. But nice and quiet if you want to stay hotel based. Great beach, plenty of sun loungers and chair's, good shows and trips too. Turtle beach trip is really good value. All in all excellent holiday and resort.More
