massive hello to all the staff and regulars at La Bamba, it's Laura the Libra rep here! back in dull boring uk and wishing i was back there. La Bamba was by far the highlight of the season with the dangerous drinks and me trying to be eminem on kareoke. we might have had the smallest bar crawl but definately the best reps! special thanks to big mike who kept me sane through the more stressful points of the summer.
love to everyone, keep in touch!

Odessey - (Restaurants in Laganas)

Laura B  (December 02, 2004)         

Worked as a rep in Laganas 2004, Oddyssey was a quality restaurant with quality food, but most importantly they looked after all us poor workers - cheers guys!!! always recommended Odyssey at my welcome meetings and will continue to do so when I'm back next year.

Olympia Hotel - (Accommodation in Laganas)

Laura B           

Olympia was a top hotel with the best pool by far

It was very quiet around the pool in the morning whilst everyone slept off the hangovers, the 24 hour bar was perfect for a nightcap after staggering home from the bars and clubs.  Friendly staff and good atmosphere.  Try the toasties from the snack bar they are ace!
I would defo stay here again and anyone who is going to stay at Olympia is sure to have a top holiday
I normally complain about EVERYTHING but there was nothing I could complain about here!

Med Version - (Restaurants in Laganas)

Laura B           

We spent most of our days on the beach next to MedVersion and George took good care of us - what a top guy!  We had our last meal of the holiday here and the portions are HUGE so we couldn't eat it all.  Not sure what the previous comment is about bad food, it was excellent really high standard food and service in a modern restaurant with the perfect view over Laganas bay.  It wasn't too expensive considering my fella had Lobster, couldn't have asked for a better meal in a better place.

The best thing about this place has got to be George - we might forget the meal and stuff but we will never forget him - he is the best thing about this restaurant and in fact the best thing about Laganas beach!!!
George we miss you already!

Paradise - (Restaurants in Laganas)

Laura B           

This is a nice restaurant for a quiet meal - get the Lamb Kleftiko they bring it out on a flaming platter and it is delicious.

Don't get the garlic bread it is in fact a seeded burger bap which was not good.
The feta cheese baked with tomato and garlic sauce is to die for

La Bamba - (Bars in Laganas)

La Bamba is a must for any kareoke lovers - although I didnt get up and sing myself it is always fun to watch (and laugh!)

Mike, you are by far the best bar owner in Laganas and even though it had been 2yrs since I last saw you you still treat me like one of your family. 
Sorry that my fella was sick on the floor  but that's what happens when you ply us with shots of red vodka! Ha ha at least I cleaned it up!
I will defo be back to visit some time, take care and enjoy the rest of the season
Much love, Laura x x (ex-Libra rep)

St Nicholas Beach - (Beaches on Zante)

Laura B           

I used to be a rep in Zante and this was my favourite beach because it was so relaxed and in a lovely place.  The beach itself is still great and loads of watersports to choose from.  There were literally hundreds of wasps which bugged me a bit but I think that's from everyone leaving drinks lying around etc.

The only thing that disappointed me was the barmaid, Mandy, as detailed in some other people's comments she is SO RUDE.  When you go to the bar you expect a smile and some friendly banter which is what most of the bars in Zante provide.  When one of my group said "Excuse me what bottled beers do you sell" her response was "Can you not see I am busy? And my name is not excuse me."  If I hadn't had a headache from being in the sun all day I would have given her a piece of my mind.  I can see that she has commented below and I would be interested to see what excuse she gives for this awful level of service. 
I go to Zante regularly and I love St Nicholas beach but I would recommend walking to the other bar/restaurant at the opposite end of the beach, up some steps, where the staff are friendly and warm towards paying customers - something that this bar clearly lacks.
I would also like to point out that the staff at the snack bar are very nice and friendly, but it is slightly overpriced

Cameo Club - (Bars in Aghios Sostis)

Laura B           

Worked in Zante in 2004 and spent most of my days off here

If you want to get away from the main strip in Laganas, this is the perfect place to go.  It is only about 10 mins walk which is nothing when you are walking along the beach.  It is the perfect chilled out place to have a swim and a few drinks, try the freshly squeezed orange juice it is to die for! (With a vodka in it, of course!)

Savvas Hotel - (Accommodation in Laganas)

Laura B          10/10

I am suprised to read some of the negative comments for Savvas, as I worked as the Libra Rep for this accommodation in 2005.  During the 7 months I was there, we had no complaints of illness or about the staff there.  The only people who were asked to leave the accommodation were those who caused damage or problems with other guests - the staff at Savvas are very laid back and want to make sure everyone has a fantastic holiday, so I don't believe that they would ask anyone to leave without good reason.

As for the comments about a bug at the Savvas, this is more likely to be caused by the dodgy free shots in the bars on the main strip, or even the mcDonalds which regularly had problems with food poisoning etc whilst I was living there.  I had breakfast here every day, went to the bbq every week and got drunk in the bar often enough - and I didn't get a bug???
If you are going to Zante to party, this is the perfect place to stay and you only need to read the comments book in the pool bar to see how much everyone who has stayed there loved it.  Forget about the comments which slag this place off, get it booked and have a great time.  Give Dena, Maruia and Stevie a kiss from laura.
For the record I no longer work for Libra so I don;t have anything to gain by posting this comment!
