Advantages: Amazing beach location, lovely views, great breakfast, modern rooms, friendly helpful staff Disadvantages: Evening meal food not great, careless cleaners

I knew that we needed to go with the sea view since the hotel is built on the beach and I decided to try the standard double since there seemed barely any difference with the deluxe.

I chose the Louis Zante Beach Hotel...
