We have just returned from the castelli,
Stayed there from July 28th to Aug 11th.......it was our Honeymoon, and it was just perfect.
Maria, Spiros, Anastasia and staff made us feel really welcome, and made it feel a home from home.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, the pool is the same, the snack bar was fab, they just made the whole experiance memorable.
We had a TV, fridge and Air con, the latter is must art this time of year. all very reasonable rates.
Even when i was not feeling too well on a couple of days they really looked after us.
The weekely BBQ is a must, 12 euros each with more food than even the biggest appetite could manage, and a glass of the local wine thrown in to boot.
It is the perfect location not far from the main strip in Laganas. so you get all the fun with none of the noise.
We will definatly be back.
CASTELLI HOTELDOES EXACTUALLY WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN...........
my husband len and myself have spent lots of our holidays at the castelli and love every second there. we are going back in may as it is like going home. spiros and anna and maria are like our second family.
My wife and I are seriously considering booking at the Castelli Hotel, the comments read up excellent. We love a walk to find a bar or restaurant that takes us along by the sea is there walks like this from the Castelli?
Don't forget you can now book direct:
We just got back from the Castelli in Laganas. This hotel is absolutely spotless and is incredibly well run by the family - for families, couples and small (like 2 people) groups of same sex occupants. While we were there, there was a mix of people - families & kids, people in their sixties to people just finishing year 2 at Uni. The Castelli appealed to everyone.
Hi Amy, me and my boyfreind have just got back from the Castelli we r 19 and 22! You will have a fantastic time dont worry! Sprios and his family are great they are really friendly and will do anything to help! the maids dont wake you up before 10 and you can leave your do not disturb sign on your door and they wont bother you at all! there are loads of bars and places to eat in walking distance! you have to go to the Red Poppy bar between the hotel and the beach, the best and cheapest cocktails and the people who work there Tasos, Dimitri and Sia are all really lovely people! The only bad thing about Lagana is that the cars are allowed to drive along the main bit of the beach at night which shocked us when we got there! if you go to the right and round past the port (about 15 mins from the main beach) there is a gorgeous beach where cars are not allowedother than that you will have a great time! hope that has helped you a bit! have a great holiday Dawn
Hi everyone. Me and my boyfriend are visiting the castelli on july 18th, and the comments on here seem so varied! I dont know what to think! I am quite sceptical about this holiday anyway, as i have never been to greece before. I also heard the maids wake u up between 8-10am every morning to clean your room! is this true, as we do like a bit of a lie in after a night out! i know the doors close at 2am but this does not bother us, as we dont tend to go to nightclubs anyway. I will be 20 on my second day there, my boyfriend is 23. Is there plenty of pubs and how far away are they from the hotel? Is the beach nice as thats where we like to spend most of our time? Is there many places to eat out and is it nice? I know i have asked loadsa questions but i just want to no where i am going, and which comments i have read are true! Thanks, u can email me on email@example.com
oops email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from the castelli hotel and we thought it was fantastic! spiros, anastasia and maria made us feel very welcome and were so helpful while we were there. the hotel is spotless and the pool is lovley and clean this is one of the best holidays we have ever had and we will definitely be returning!! any questions e mail me on email@example.com or just post them on here.
For those of you who want to see a bit more before booking, or for those that have been before and want to book direct with Spiros - the Castelli now has it's own web-site where you can book direct, contact the hotel - whatever!!
We have just come back from our holiday. We had read reviews of the hotel on the net after already booking, and were very apprehensive as many comments are so negative. I am happy to say that none of the bad reviews were true. We thought the Castelli was a lovely hotel, all the staff were friendly and helpful, and not in the least bit scary! The breakfast provided at the hotel was very nice, which was another thing we were not looking forward to. All I can say is that the people who have criticized the Castelli must be incredibly fussy and difficult to please, because we can't think of a single bad thing to say about it!
I am really looking forward to my holiday at the Castelli Hotel - but I am worried about LAGANAS - is it really as bad as it sounds!? Also, has anyone been HORSE RIDING out there? And finally! What about car rental, is it cheaper to book before we go - we just want a CAR for 3/4 days (I've found a deal for £67 on the internet). ANY advice on the above is really appreciated. Thanks a million.
in the very near future we are coming to zante for two weeks. during our time there we wish to hire quad bikes or motorbikes of some kind in order to get around the place. Can anyone give me any details on the best place to hire when we are there. any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Do the rooms have any cooking facilities?
Hello again Karl.
There is a water park in Laganas - called the "Wet'n'Wild" - which is about a mile or so up the main road out of Laganas on the right hand side.
Nice little run out on the quad bike if you don't fancy the walk!
There aren't too many slides there and some people say it is expensive for what there is.
I believe if you go after 2.30 the price is reduced.
oops... my email is melanie_p_1 @hotmail.com
hi i know i have alreday asked this but my email has been down so if anyone emailed me please could you do so again! i just wanted to know that if u plan to come in after 2am does the owner give you a key to get back in? or does he mind if you let him know you will be late as some ppl have said he does not mind and some say he does.
Hey Gerry, 1 more question if you don't mind.
Is there a water park in Zante, this was one of our criteria when
booking but the agent said it more than likely had one but she didn't
know, despite having visited the island only last year.
I really hope so :s
