Great Location, Friendly Staff, but not quite as advertised
"Visited this hotel end of May early June 2012. Great location. 2 minute walk to the beach and a 4 minute walk to the main strip. Friendly family run hotel. Polite and helpful staff. Very clean. Maid service daily. New bedding and towels every couple of days. Only ate from menu once and it was quite nice. We went self catering and the 'fully equipped' kitchen consisted of a kettle and a rusty 2 ring stove. Plus a fridge. Been to Zante 8 times and have always had a toaster and/or a small oven/grill. Not good enough for people who are self catering but fine if staying half board. Paid for a 1 bedroom appartment and was put in a studio. No telephone or TV in room as advertised. No jacuzzi, been removed. Only saw one pool??? No idea where the 2nd one was. Only sat by the pool for one day as several groups of lads didn't make for a nice environment. Lot's of swearing, shouting and running around at all times of the day and night. We spent our days on the beach instead. Photo's are out of date and do not represent how the hotel appears in 2012. Would not recommend this hotel if going as a couple or have a young family. Fine for 18-30's. Very cheap and very basic. "

Fab Party holiday!!
"Me and four girls aged 22-23 stayed at the plaza between 18-25th August 2011 Had a fantastic time at this hotel! The hotel was clean, staff were great its a family run business and we had a laugh with the staff, being a group of loud mancs their banter made our holiday! We stayed all inclusive which we were very impressed with, the food was good, had a wide selection and even a vegetarian option (which pleased me cause I dont eat certain meats). We came to Zante for a party holiday so took full advantage of the all inclusive drinks, this included a selection of 5 cocktails and many many spirits, any other drinks were half price (only for all inclusive) such as Jaiger bombs and cider. The all inclusive stops at 11pm but after that there are many drink offers which were much cheaper than on the strip. The strip is literally five minutes walk up an alleyway, perfect location for people who want to party! The beach is about ten minutes and shops also! As the hotel was predominantly young people who want to have a good time I would not recommend for families as there is no evening entertainment, however families did stay and appeared to be having a good time! If you want the perfect party holiday stay here! Five star!! "

"went here is july this year, it was a shambles. Pool was dirty, had bugs and cigarette butts floating in it. I went with a group of 8 lads, the hotel was full of older boys and no girls. The photos lie and are not a fair representation. I'd advice you not to come here, holiday from hell. LOVE FROM CAMERON THICK xxxx"

"Stayed in the main complex from July the 11th-18th and overall had really positive thoughts on the place. Lovely atmosphere around the hotel and town in general. Bar staff are fantastic always willing to have some fun and nothing is to much for them. Food is nice and bedrooms are basic but cleaned daily and after all the hotel is only a place to rest your head. Would highly recommend going to zante and staying here especially if your in the late teens to early twenties age bracket. Would like to thank George and his family for there hospitality and strongly considering returning next year."

"Me and my mates stayed here for a week and i can say that this hotel is really good, in 1 building the rooms are basic but clean, and in the other building, the rooms are more spacious with a better kitchen and bathroom. The maids are in every day and provide new sheets and towels etc. The hotel staff are so freindly, we got on with all of them and they wud have a really good sence of humor and a laugh with us all the time. The food is great with lots to choose from on the menu, and the food was served within about 10 minutes. There is a good shop about 50 yards from the hotel, which we used all the time to buy food and water etc. The beach is a 2 minute walk and the strip is about a 5 minute walk, but there is a shortcut behind the hotel, which only takes no more than a minute. Some people say that it is noisy from all the night life from the strip, but we didnt have any problems sleeping and coudnt really here any noise. Overall the hotel is really good and would recommend for anyone 18-30, i would definatly stay again."

"Plaza 2 is in a fantastic location, which is probably the best thing about it. Its 2 minutes from the beach and strip. The staff are really friendly and helpful and sort out problems straight away but when we arrived our room was really dirty especially the bathroom which we werent pleased about. Plaza 2 has mainly young people staying at which was great for us being 4 19 year old girls but not if you want a quiet holiday, but then I wouldnt go to Laganas if you want that. The safety deposit boxes were really cheap and they did cheap food nights."

"this will be mine and my husbands 3rd time staying @ plaza 2 , what can i say, from the moment you step off the coach you are greeted with a freindly service from a welcoming family. the hotel its self is in an ideal location a few seconds from the beach , and a few minuites from the main strip. the rooms are very clean, and the food at the plaza is great, and superb value for money. the family that run this place , will do any thing for you, wich i personly think this makes your holiday better, knowing you feel like home from home. i would deffinatley recomend plaza 2 for any one that is looking for a great relaxing holiday, and i know this won`t be my last time going back. sonia lewis clark."
