NOT 4/5 star hotel, gone down the greek pan in past two years.
gone down the greek pan, stayed at this hotel for 4th time (and the last) not been updated, any modification (other than over priced drinks) the rooms are now so tired & grubby, restaurant buffet area is far too small and outdated, evening meals are very poor, got worse since 2020, they nopw cater (toungue in cheek) for familys kids etc, like a buggy park outside restaurant, no actual facililites for kids just that they say family friendly to get business. If you you want 4/5 star with peace & reasonable adult approach, then do not book this hotel you will be met with dissapointment for the price you will pay, not to mention the extortionate cost of drinks at the bars.
Great hotel in a wonderful location.
We had a wonderful two weeks in this hotel. The location is great. Just a short stroll to the beach and a pleasant ten minute walk into town. The reception staff were brilliant. Very helpful and any issues were dealt with immediately. Our room was very nice with a large comfortable bed and plenty of storage space. A lovely bathroom with a powerful shower and a good hairdryer. It was cleaned every day to a high standard as was the whole of the hotel. The balcony was nice but had no clothes airer so it’s a good idea to take a small washing line. The food was good. We always enjoyed the breakfast particularly the freshly made omelettes. We only ate lunch at the pool bar once which was disappointing and expensive for what it was. We found it much nicer to buy a filled roll from the Alex supermarket just down the road and eat it on our balcony. The dinner in the buffet restaurant was generally very good especially the soups, salads and desserts. Sometimes the choice of main course dishes was not so great but I always found something I liked although my husband struggled sometimes. The wines on offer were very good but as in most hotels very pricey so we only had one glass with dinner and we were not prepared to pay for water. Considering how cheap bottled water is in the supermarkets it would have been a nice touch if the hotel provided this free of charge. All of the staff in the restaurant were very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed the Greek night in the a la carte restaurant. The food was very good and there was traditional music and dancing. The pools were lovely, very large and clean. The only problem was you had to be up early to get a sun bed in the sun and they were quite close to each other. There were pool towels available and could be changed in the spa as often as you wanted to. The sun loungers were very comfortable. We enjoyed going to the beach for the day. If you walk along a little way to the second bar the sand is much nicer and it’s easier to get into the sea. We hired two beds and an umbrella for fifteen euros and enjoyed a light lunch there. The sea was so warm and clear. We only did one trip which was called Above and Beyond which we booked in the town. It was a wonderful day consisting of a minibus tour to see some of the island followed by a fabulous speed boat trip to see the shipwreck, caves and there were a couple of swim stops. Highly recommended. To conclude we loved the hotel but if we were to return we would only book bed and breakfast as there are so many bars and restaurants in the town to choose from. The hotel is very quiet in the evenings and there was very little entertainment.
Nice hotel but……..
I find this a difficult review to write as do not wish to be unfair to what is basically a nice hotel. I have given four stars - very good - but it I would describe it more as good rather than very good. We stayed here for three weeks half board from mid September until 8th October. We are not great fans of package tours but had such lovely experiences recently with similarly priced 5 stars hotels - Elysium in Rhodes and Elysium in Paphos - and read such positive reviews that we though we would book again. About a month before we went came across a YouTube review of this hotel - again very positive - which would be worth watching for anyone considering if this hotel is for them. My heart somewhat sank as it hardly seemed a five star luxury hotel. On arrival at main reception - a rather bland and underwhelming area - we were given a lovely warm welcome by Stella and other staff. The staff are lovely. But as a few others have pointed out this is a 4 star hotel trying to be a 5 star - the hotel prices are certainly 5 star! There are many positives - the staff are lovely and helpful, the pool area very nice and beautifully set out at night, the room cleaning is of the highest standard I have seen anywhere in any hotel in the world and the hotel well located. The rooms - or at least the room we had , “standard deluxe” are ok, rather beige and bland, with a small bathroom and a small balcony. The dining area is ok but again hardly five star - and the food 3 star. As a vegetarian - who does eat fish socially when necessary - the choice was quite poor. And fish fingers - described on menu as “fish sticks” - in a five star hotel on two or three occasions - left us speechless. My partner is not a vegetarian and described the mains as bland. The starters, salads etc were quite good but the same and after three weeks rather samey. The desserts were always delicious though. Drink prices were pricey. We still had a nice holiday but do feel a little bit disappointed with whole experience. If you are a vegetarian do not go half board - especially if you are staying more than a week. There was little or no hand gel around the hotel - or indeed anywhere on island or other places we went in Greece on trips - and lots of people with coughs and sneezing. We got some hand gel but left it a little late. We got more than a cold! Can I make a plea to place hand gel around the hotel especially eating area - management might respond to this with the usual “we take hygiene seriously and hand gel is readily available” line but please believe me, there was none. Sorry if this review is less than positive. It was a nice hotel, we had fab weather and Zakynthos and neighbouring island lovely.
Relaxing hotel stay
We had a lovely relaxing time at Lesante and enjoyed our stay though it fell a little short of 5* expectations. The staff are a real highlight always friendly and accommodating. The location is on the quieter side of town (perfect for us) and is a short road or slightly longer beach walk to the centre. There are so many restaurants and bars that I'd recommend opting for a B&B stay though the food was always tasty at the evening buffet. The pool area is nice with very comfortable sun loungers but the lounger politics put a dampener on our stay - if you hadn't claimed your space by 8am you were relegated to loungers without umbrellas on the grass. The sun rotates across the area with very few loungers in the sunshine all day probably adding to the competitiveness. There are signs saying they will remove towels after 1.5 hrs but this wasn't policed. To improve the experience - Rooms were nice but tired they could do with some TLC to bring them up to spec. Full turndown service rather than just offering new towels in the evening. Better tea and coffee facilities in the room. Larger nicer towels for the bathroom as the ones offered were small and quite dry Partitions for the balcony as there is no privacy and you felt like you were sitting with strangers if you were all out at the same time.
The good, bad and ugly
Here goes, the good! 3min walk to beach, beautiful pool area, pools and kept grounds and very friendly, attentive staff in all areas. Comfy beds & Good Air Con & mini-bar. The bad- food- defo not 5* food, appalling selection & often Luke warm, not re-filled unless asked, poor selection bread/rolls at breakfast, same food at breakfast every day. No show cooking that you would expect of an advertised 5*. The ugly- drinks way over-priced. €11+ for a cocktail, €9 for baileys- mainly ice, €8 draft beer. If you are half board and opt for lunch instead- forget it! Very limited lunch menu, never changes and you get 30% off price not a free swap unlike all other hotels we have used. This is a small, boutique hotel defo not 5*, my advice would be to stay b&b or stay elsewhere on s/c- lovely restaurants in town, much cheaper prices & variety
