Not a Greek Tragedy!

18 Aug 2010
Visited with: Infant
My son was 8 months old when we visited this hotel for two weeks, during May when the weather wasn't too scorching. We had a lovely double room with an extra bed, but we asked for a cot and it was provided free, with linen etc. Our room had black-out shutters which helped toprevent very early starts in the morning! We did have noisy neighbours but in a busy resort we did expect this, although it was never so bad that we'd consider complaining. Breakfasts were included, and there were high chairs for small people, and the Greeks just adore children so we were always made welcome, both at the hotel and everywhere we went on Zante island. There was a swimming pool and a toddler pool but in may the water was a tad too chilly for my son, but he loved the sea. Just a stones throw from the hotel you find the beach, which has a boardwalk, so we didn't have to struggle with the buggy through the sand! The only downside with the hotel was that it stoppd serving food in the mid afternoon (I suspect it has changed since we visited) and so in the evenings we were a bit stuck once our son went to bed. He was too small to take out with us in the evenings, so we tended to have a large lunch all together, and then buy snacks and things for the evening, or have takeaway delivered to the hotel! The terrace cafe did great snacks and drinks, ice lollies etc, so we didn't have to go far. However, the bedrooms have fridges and don't seem to mind at all if you buy supplies (beer, food, water) and drink your own rather than buying from the hotel bar. This made it easier for us to store baby food jars, milk, and we had a kettle for cleaning his bottles etc. Thankfully the bathroom had a bath not just a shower which made it easier at bathtime with a small baby. Maid service every day kept everything nice and clean and hygeinic, although on one day we had a power cut for the whole day due to a minor earthquake in the night (didn't bother my son one bit!) and we found it hard to make up his bottles but the kitchen staff managed to makeone for him, which lasted until power came back on again.
