9 / 10

Went to Zante with my best mate and stayed in the Perkes Hotel, absolutely loved it!! Everyone who worked there were good crack, especially Nick, Vicki and Scott! Loved just chillaxin at the pool bar at night with them 3 before we headed on 2 the strip! They definitely made the holiday extra fun! Only thing that bothered me about the Perkes was that we were there for 2weeks and we never got our bed sheets changed once. Booking to go back to Zante in September this year! Heading back to Perkes!

rooms very bad, pool, & pool bar great by gazza4747
4 / 10

Do NOT take your kids here, it is predomanantly a 18-30's place, the noise in the hotel at night (AND DAYS) is horendus! Doors slamming, people shouting, dogs barking (at night) and it is so hot it is unbelieveble! The rooms are like prison cells, very very basic, and the beds are hard (our room wasn't even ready when we got there!!! The reception is hardly manned (or womaned) and to get your keys is near impossible? If you loose em, it's 50 Euros! £40 quid for a key that costs £2! However, the Pool & Pool bar are very good, reasonable prices for nice food & Drink. Would I go back.......................... Nahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Got back from Zante on the 6th July.... by A Robinson
8 / 10

Got back from Zante on the 6th July. And Im going to miss the place big time!!

The holiday started off as a bit disaster when I cut my foot by the side of the pool on a dodgey tile!! the hospital we went to was foul and we even experienced a body bag being carried down the corridor in front of us!! That was a new experience! I had to have 6 stitches and was told I wasn't allowed to drink of go swimming for a week, What am I supposed to do on a lads holiday then???

Anyway, the bar staff helped me a lot on that day and without the lady there to strap my toe I think I would have filled the pool with blood!! I can't really knock the hotel to much because we had an amazing time there and we met some amazing people as well.

If you are looking for something basic for a lads/girls holiday away then this place is ideal, its about a 2 minute walk from the START of the strip and your 2 seconds the other way from the best restaurant in Zante, (paradise) The guys there are a great laugh and the food is great as well!!

Anyway if you are booking a holiday to this place your in for a great time!

If you haven't booked yet... hurry up!! you'll love it!

got back from zante on the 29th june.... by H Jeffs
8 / 10

got back from zante on the 29th june. best holiday ever. alrdi lukin 2 go back, an would stay in perkes again. the food served at the bar was amazin had all sorts of choice, an majority of it was english. dont get your hopes up on havin clean sheets tho, we didnt have them once while we were over there even when we complained, had to rob them off the maids trolley. bathrooms tend to flood because the shower is low an curtain doesnt do ne thing. the noise is bad, especially if your a light sleeper, people bangin on your doors at half 5 in the mornin, not every night it only really happened towards the end of our holiday wen a big group came over, apart from the bangin the noise is tollorable. night guard will threaten to kick you out if your makin loads of noise. all of the bar staff and reception staff r lovely. id go back again but maybe take my own sheets and ear plugs. the walk to the strip isnt to far, we mainly got taxis tho cuz it was only 6euros ne where on the strip. super market bout 2mins from hotel. most drinks in clubs r 5euros but u get loads of free shots so cant complain. if you are young you will love it, old n up 4 a laugh u will love it, but this isnt a quiet chilled out holiday!!

1 / 10

the worst hotel iv ever been to. you want to be kept up at 5.30 in the morning? well then go to this hotel. iv just come back 3 days ago from the perkes hotel and it was the worst two weeks. the hotel was open to all and was swomped by outsiders, there was neva room by the pool the water park wasnt even open! " to cold " at 44' degrees. theres no bbq buffet! and theres no breakfast! a piece of bread and a slice of ham and cheese! i do not recomend this hotel to anyone! what a complete waste of money!

9 / 10

Me and 9 other friends stayed at the Perkas hotel for 1 week at the beginning of June, the family who owns the hotel are really welcoming and really made us feel welcome when we arrived after what had been a long day, like some of the other posts we never was up for the breakfast but the menu at the bar was reasonably priced and the food was nice, for eating out there is a restaurant 50meters right of the hotel which we ate at 3 nights and would recommend to anyone going to Zante, the walk onto the strip is around 10mins to beginning of it and roughly 25mins to the beach, the rooms are simple but all we used them for was sleep so didn’t effect us. The beer at the bar 3euro for a pint which isn’t bad at all as on the strip you will be looking at the cheapest to pay 3euro for a bottle of Amsteel and 5euro for imported beer like becks etc. would rate this hotel 9/10 and me and my mates are already discussing about coming back next summer.

Perkes hotel in Laganas is a very... by G R Croft
9 / 10

Perkes hotel in Laganas is a very accommodating place the owners Nick and Rachel and Margaret and all the rest of the family group are really nice people nothing is too much trouble,we had a double room by the stairs so you do expect a bit of noise,the only complaint I really had was the music in the pool and bar area was too loud and mainly modern music not for the like who enjoy Queen,dire straits,Sinatra etc and perhaps a bit of 60's/70's/80's.I have read the reviews regarding 500 mts to beach,it is actually 500 mts to resort centre,we found the walk good exercise down to the beach the only thing is you will get welcomes from prospective tavernas,bars,boat operators all touting for your business,all part of the greek way of life,we found a lot of them good fun with a little banter here and there and a good drop of humour put in as well.We did the shipwreck tour and enjoyed it and went turtle watching and saw 5 of those lovely creatures,really enjoyable holiday and we survived Zante airport which is definately not as bad as we were told it was.Back to Perkes this is a must hotel for value,friendliness,food and drink prices are same as bars which is very good,and also if your very lucky you may even get a visit from one of the family pets a lovely white rabbit called Sunny which visited us one morning.

Basic but still a enjoyable holiday by dollyblue
8 / 10

We arrived at the Perkes and thought well this isn't as bad as the reviews i've read, it has a nice pool area at the front of the hotel and a bar which does nice meals.

The rooms were very basic but adequate we wasn't planning on staying in them all that much.

The holiday was bed and breakfast but we only ventured down a few times for the breakfast as this consisted of 3 slices of french roll a piece of ham and a piece of cheese, with a cup of tea or coffee.

When you get there you will be told that the beach is 10 minutes down the road, this is not true it is a good half hours walk which is quite nice or would be if every bar and resturant didn't have someone outside trying to bully you into their establishment just be firm and say no they will eventually leave you alone.

The family that run the Perkes are Brill and try help whenever they can. We found them friendly and enjoyable to spend time with and found that this made our holiday more then any of the other little things, the food from all resturants we went to was lovely but the paridise which is 2 minutes away from the perkes if you turn right out of the main gate of the hotel was by far the best, at the paridise the staff are friendly the prices are not too expensive and atmosphere was lovely.

In summary we found that if you listen to everything you read you would never go on holiday, yes the hotel was basic but who cares we went there for sun sea and sand with a few drinks chucked in and we got exatly what we wanted along with meeting some of the nicest people we have ever met and building friendships that i'm sure will last, hats of to the owners of the Perkes Margaret, Nick and Rachel along with there extended family who travel over every year to help out and give it the true family run feeling

Pure deafening and sleepless nights to be had.. by BORODAFT1
2 / 10

After emailing the hotel to reserve a double bed,i found that on arrival we didn't have one reserved.

The location of the hotel is suitable for 18 - 30's who can blast down the high street on their noisy exhaustless 50 cc scooters right through the entire night,but for the so called family hotel it is a nightmare.Any oldish person should steer well clear of this one.

If the bikes or noisy neighbours don't keep you awake the constant barking dogs will which i'm led to believe are the owners. will.The rooms are very basic and would improove if they had mosquito nets on the doors.The rooms are cleaned on a daily basis which is a bonus.7 euro /day to buy the air-con. Daily chages for a fridge or tv.

A power cut left the water for the showers freezing so another negative'

The actual owner is a very lovely lady who i think would have tried to help us a lot more if she understood the circumstances.Read into this place well in advance before booking.

9 / 10

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Perkes for first 2 weeks in May and had a great time. Rachel and her lovely family made us feel very welcome and did their best to get us drunk every night.(Make sure you ask Scott the barman to make you a car bomb!!) The hotel is basic but comfortable. We never made breakfast once but enjoyed the food at the pool bar which was reasonably priced. The hotel is lively with guests of all ages but we were told that during the high season it is more young people orientated. Laganas main strip is about 15 mins walk with plenty bars on the way. The weather was varied over the fortnight which we were told was unusual. The pool area is good with plenty of sunbeds and a good sized pool for swimming which Rachels daughter makes great use of since she is Greek swimming champion! Have read other reviews of the Perkes and think that some people expect too much for what they are actually paying. To sum up we had a fab holiday and would definitely go back to the Perkes.

PS. special mention to Sunny the family rabbit who hopped into our room every morning to wake us up and eat our leftover gyros! Love Suzanne & Matt. xxx

10 / 10

Please ignore all bad reports on this hotel. Yes the hotel is basic, which if you have been to Greece before is what you get everywhere, but the staff more than make up for that. Nick and Rachel and Rachel's mum and dad and Nick's mum and dad are the nicest people you can ever meet. They are there to make you have a top time and they do. The measures of drinks and the free shots (Don't tell Nick or rachels mum and dad tho, Haha) are huge and if you wanna get leathered you can all day every day. Nick and rachels kids are also very polite and cute. I went with my fiancee and her mum and dad and her sister and her friend and we all had a top time. Weather was hit and miss but i expected that in May anyway. The walk to the beach is about 10-15 mins which is a nice walk and loads of bars on the way up. I would defiantly go back there again, and everyone who was there when i was there would also go back. Perkes seemed the best and buisiest Hotel in laganas and no doubt the reason why people go there and go back every year is due to the owners and the staff!! Scott and Vicky are ace too. See you all next year hopefully!! Lewis
