Couldn't have got this more right if we had tried. Just spent a week here and spent more time in the hotel bar with Dimitri and Pedro than going wild on the strip. Pool, sundeck and rooms all fine and spectacular views. Will definitely be back next May if not this October. Yamas Dimitri, Pedro and Fiona. Luv Vickie and Gavin
better commenting late than never but we had no problems with Libra or Excel Airways. Got to agree with the airport comments but no fault of Libra. Our rep was great and always available but we did not need him as accomodation was excellent (Hotel Panorama Laganas) with no hitches - would definitely holiday with Libra again
went here in 2003 and are going again 4th Sept, not many comments for this hotel in 2005 and wanted to ask if anyone knows whether Dimitris and Pedro are still there as they made our holiday last time round and I hope it is still their hotel??? Can you help?
This is the only hotel I have ever visited twice and have no regrets as this place is great. Petro does the day shift and his brother Dimitri at night. Bar closes about 3.30am and is the best place to be late on unless you really want to party down the strip. 5 mins stroll from all the action but quiet enough not to be affected by it and 2 mins from the beach. This hotel is great for couples, families, singles and for all ages. The bar snacks are fine and plenty on the menu. Breakfast is toast, ham, cheese, bread and jam with tea, coffee and orange. It is near the Akropolis restaurant which is highly rated by all and definitely worth a visit or two. I'll be back next year. Done May and September now so might try June! Yamas Petro and Dimitri - you are great guys xx
Three words - EXCELLENT EAT HERE!
This hotel is like a second home to me now and I cannot imagine not having at least one week here each year. I have been at different times of the year and always the guests seem to be one big family. As many laughs here can be had as down the Strip (which is as busy and noisy as ever!). The weather was particularly hot for June - some days early 40 degrees. Dimitris and Petro are great (see photo with Petro on the left) . Petros wife Fiona is from Scarborough and is a great friend. Papa Yanis hello to you to. Before I finish I have to say a big hello to Gem, Mel, Liz and Lou, the Wigan girls who made my holiday this year and also to Bev, Naomi and Nicola from Lancaster. See you all next year x
I simply cannot belive the comments Natalie put about this hotel - I think she must have gone to a different Panorama!! Yeah it is 2 star but dirty it is not and yeah maybe shower rooms could do with some upgrading but hey how much time do you spend in there! To those who haven't been here yet - try it - you won't regret it. Thanks Nicola for your kind comments too xxx
No fridges in rooms guys but plenty very cold water behind bar for only 60 cents per bottle.
Hi to Tom, Curtis, Jack and Richard from you adopted mum!!! So was it Curtis that was worse for wear at the airport lol - hope you are all ok and glad you had an ace hols. mebbe c u back there next year??
Hiya Bev, Nic and Naomi - hows reality!!! Six weeks today omg!!! Fancy a trip to Halifax on 9th Sept - if so u r welcome and mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with ur address ok xxx Mum
Hey there - has anyone been here yet this year? Are Pedro and Dimitris still here. We will be there 26th August - see you there at the best hotel in Laganas!! Vickie n Gav x
why no comments on the best hotel on the island this year? Pedro and Dimitri where are you?
got back last week from another ace week at the Panorama. The only changes here are for the better and now 50% of the rooms have aircon at an extra 40 Euros a week (Dimitris - rip off! lol) well worth the extra money as it was a heatwave when we were there this time. No Phil I never found my top te he he!!! Hi to you guys and Sam, Joel and Rae. Hope your second week was good Carol and Michael - it was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for looking after Adrian when we left. Hi to the Salford lads - did Steve ever sleep in his own bed again?? Defo be back again next year (6th time then) and will take the kids now they are a bit older. Love to all at the Panorama, Petros, Dimitris, Fiona, Yannis and Anastasia. You guys rock and we love ya xxx
I would give this place 11 out of 10 if I could. Everything on the menu is scrummy. The owners are very friendly and Scottish Susan has worked there since I started going to Laganas in 2003 - she is lovely too. Eat here you will not be disappointed and you will definitely go back for more another night x
Help! just tried to book this wonderful place with Libra for the 6th year on the trot and they are saying they are not doing it anymore? anyone know who has taken over please?
We have been to the Panorama for 6 years now and will continue to do so. Why - because it has all you need. The hotel had its previous contract with Libra and attracted many youngsters in July/Aug. This year they are trying Club 18-30s for the first time. The hotel was actually full for the 2 weeks we wanted to go so we stayed in their uncles next door in the Dennis Studios (see separate entry). Panorama now offers room only board with a fridge and kettle in each room. It is completely air conditioned now (bedrooms) at an extra weekly cost (approx 40 Euros). They have added table tennis to the front terrace and also have internet access for the guests. So those are the changes but what stays the same is the tremendous hospitality offered by Pedros and Dimitris along with the rest of their family. We took two of our children along with a friend each this year (2 girls aged 16, 2 boys aged 13) and they had a ball. The prices behind the bar have remained the same as previous years for food and drink and the bar is certainly the place to stay until some of the 18-30 crowd wanted to hit the strip at around 1am. Will I come back again - try stopping me!!! If you require any further info email me at email@example.com or look out for the new Panorama website. Hi guys - see you soon xx Vickie n Gavin
6th time to Laganas and first time for 2 weeks. Excellent we could go to Bella Napoli more times!! More opportunity to try different things from the menu - and we did. Everything was lovely, the pizza, pasta, chicken and steak dishes were cooked to perfection. And the DESSERTS - omg divine! Got a big thumbs up from my son and his friend (pictured here with Scottish Susie who is still working here and as lovely as ever). Also pictured is another yummy pizza going into the stonebake oven!! If you miss out on eating here you are a fool - any questions/directions (just off strip) email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - Susie can you drop me your email for the other photos maybe? See you all next year xx Vickie n Gavin
Just had our annual Panorama fix !!! 7 times now and no end in sight. A bit strange this year without the hotel having a contract. Busy with private bookings though with a mixture of nationalities. Next year they have a 6 month contract with Thomson and I am sure it will be very busy and hopefully with the bar being open 24/7 again! Dimitris and his family continue to look after you with the very best hospitatlity - I really do feel like I am going to my second home now. The weather was lovely and lazing on a lilo in the swimming pool is my idea of bliss. See you next year everybody. Come on you lot that haven't been yet - get the Thomson brochure and check this hotel out. Yamas xxx
7th visit to Laganas always staying at the Panorama hotel. We could not wait to go and eat here again. The name of the restaurant says it all. Bella Bella Bella oh it is sooo good. Kiki and Fabio never need to worry about repeat visits here because all it takes is one meal and you are hooked!! Across the whole menu there are some mouth-watering dishes. From a basic pizza (stone-baked) or pasta to the most lovely pepper fillet steak. A new pizza place has opened across the road - ignore it. It is a very poor copy!!! See you next year guys and Kiki I promise I will send that post card from Bali!! Any more info required email me at email@example.com. Vickie n Jordan
