Pallas Hotel

Accommodation in Laganas

            
Jill O          10/10

The best hotel in Zante.

The location - ideal for both young and old - just far enough away from the main strip not to hear the music but near enough for a stroll down to the many restaurants and fantastic nightlife.  The hotel has 24 hour security so you can come back anytime during the night (just take off your high heels girls!!).  Although improved lighting the walk back in the dark is a little daunting if you are by yourself although the police station is just at the bottom of the road so the traffic tends to slow down to a safe level.
 
The hotel - absolutely immaculate, rooms cleaned every day, marble floors keep the inside reception areas cool, air conditioning available (and necessary in August), there is a lift for accessibility, there is a fridge in the room (payable locally) which is large enough to keep water etc cool.  The bar is entertainment in itself -both Dimitris are great fun, food is available all day (and most of the night) it is good quality with a good range of Greek and English food.  The barbecue night is a must and if you are feeling lucky there is a quiz/bingo night.  There is internet access (payable locally), large TV and games for all the family.  The pool is kept clean and free of bugs.
 
And last but definitely not least - the Xenos family - you will be in a minority if you are first timers at the Hotel Pallas.  We have been going for 19 years and every year we see more and more "friends" returning.  The welcome you receive is second to none and to say it is Greek Hospitality at its most genuine just doesn't begin to sum it up.  The family are fantastic - nothing is too much trouble, everyone is greeted with a smile.  We love it here, we love the family and if you are going to Zante YOU MUST STAY HERE IT IS THE BEST.  Everyone who comes back, year after year, says the same - staying somewhere else would be a Greek Tradegy and a travesty for you.  Book - you wont regret it and you will be back for more.

The Sarakina up the lane from the Pallas is about the best near to it. Hope this helps you

Just stayed for 2 weeks at the Pallas Hotel, had a great time the owners go out the way to help you have a great time...
We booked on the hotel web site and the flights too on their web site. We saved about 400 for 4 adults compared to booking with Thomas Cook. Well worth a visit for couples or families.

The website address is www.hotelpallas.co.uk.

Booked to stay there end of September for 1 week

15 minute walk to the beach, but just far enough from the hussle and bussle!  A MUST IS TO GO OUT ON A GLASS BOTTOMED BOAT TO SEE THE SEA TURTLES about 15 Euros each

Got back from the Pallas about a month ago, had a great time as usual.

We will be going back in exactly 4 weeks for our 10th visit, looking forward to seeing a few familiar faces and the Xenos family again.
Great hotel, great people, I am a little bit too old to enjoy what goes on in the town at night but there are still plenty of other things to do and see on the island.
The hotel is far enough away that you don't have to get involved in that if you don't want to but only a 15 minute walk if you do.
 
p.s How's Jack's leg?

My friend and I have just returned from our first stay at the Pallas hotel. I can honestly say I cannot fault it, the hotel is a stones throw away from the Laganas strip and as two 22yr old girls we felt comfortable walking back to the hotel from our nights out every night.
 
The atmosphere was always very pleasant around the hotel with nice people who are always happy to chat. The hotel is not for yobs who like climbing over balconys, but if you are wanting a quiet daytime retreat and lively nights in laganas centre, this is your hotel!!
 
Th pool is gorgeous and so is the surroundings of the hotel, we had a gorgeous veiw of the hills from our balcony and overall were just thouroughly impressed!!
 
Thanks to all who made the stay as lovely as it was!!

Definitely the friendliest hotel on Zante, thanks to the magnificent efforts of the whole Xenos family and their hard-working staff. The whole place is kept spotless and the atmosphere is just great, especially in the new bar where the two Dimitris plus Jim and Marian keep everyone happy. Excellent food is served all day and night. A great hotel and one which has an incredible number of repeat guests. We will be back!

13 of us just back and for the 11 newcomers, all have said they will be back. Cannot find one fault with this hotel as everyone is greeted with pleasure on arrival and sadness on departure. I have added a picture of the new bar just completed, for regulars to see before they arrive again. Special thanks to the whole Xenos family from Pearl and myself for the wedding present they gave us on our last day, thanks again

The best hotel we have ever stayed at in Greece... We booked the hotel at the web site, booked the flights seperate from Newcastle airport we saved about 300 booking this way. See you 2007 Pallas, their web site is www.hotelpallas.co.uk

The piccy is taken from our room

exceptionally the best on the resort of laganas. good value for money, paid 149 from leeds/brad airport 28th sept to 5 oct.  the views from room 119 were excellent.  could see mountians, olive trees, wildlife & peaceful (except when the wildlife c**k crowed & set off the dogs lol).....

the pool is absolutely lovely. the walk up the hill from the nightlife, didn't seem far at all & sobbered up after a night out!!!!
the hotel was very clean & tidy & i would recommend anyone to go there. the staff are friendly.  the hotel is 3star, but should be 5star considering how beautiful it is.
 
loved it here.
 
love charlotte stanley & furness

The Pallas has an excellent location, being an easy five-minute stroll from one end of the strip. It has a lovely pool and the whole place is kept spotless with the rooms cleaned six times a week.

The family who run the hotel are very friendly and always eager to help you enjoy your holiday, as proved by the large numbers of repeat visitors.
 
Cooked meals of a high quality are available morning, noon and night and Dimitri at the bar is a real star.
 
I have stayed at other places in Laganas but the Pallas is way above the rest, believe me.

Where to start??

Very impressed when we turned up in the middle of the night... oh how things changed!  The room was clean although we were stuck at the back of the hotel on the ground floor despite requesting a second floor room with pool view and balcony.  There were these black millepede type creatures in our room  when we turned up and on the corridor outside our room and being two girls we were a bit grossed out by them.  We managed to miss our rep meeting but as I had been to Laganas twice before I didn't really mind that too much.  The pool was ok, very clean and at least it was a chlorine pool, not like many pools in Laganas. 
 
When we realised just how far away from town we were we were a bit miffed to say the least.  We realised that it would cost us 6 to get a taxi into town each evening and 6 back again, which basically meant that we were stuck at the pool bar or our room until the late evening when we were ready to go out.  We managed to walk back from the strip twice (with plenty of alcohol for Dutch courage) and neither time did I feel particularly safe as the main strip is actually a walk down a lane with no side walk or lighting.  Very unsafe and intimidating. 
 
We were practically forced to spend 1.20 per coke we drank at the bar and each meal on the restrictive menu at the bar costs approximately 5 and was not worth the money.  I must have tried most things on the menu, and the only thing that impressed me was the club sandwich.  Everything came with chips and there was no offer of veg at all.  God forbid I was a vegetarian!  I would have starved!  The lady running the bar in the day time seemed nice enough although her man friend Denis was a bit of a loser.  Miserable, attitude filled and generally quite nasty and snobbish.  The man that ran the bar at night was lovely though and polite which helps.  The entertainment which was supposed to be on at the bar on certain nights was cancelled nearly every night which was a let down. 
 
The room was cleaned every night and this is where the clincher comes!  On our last day my friend and myself vacated the apartment by 12pm as instructed.  When it came to getting changed ready to go out that night my friend realised she had accidentally left her belt in the room.  When enquiring with the witch of a receptionist (beware of her!) about it she was told that anything left in the room the maid assumes is a present to her.  My friend practically laughed in her face thinking she was joking but apparently not.  THE MAIDS ARE THIEVES!!    This would not happen in England (or anywhere else in the world or Laganas probably)!  Eventually the witch had to call the maid at home and get her to drop it off to the hotel before we left which she done in the end.  Still, not very happy about the service here though!
 
Would I return to Laganas?  Yes.  I've fallen in love with the island but I would NEVER return to the Pallas Hotel after this experience.  There are definitely 100% better hotels on offer closer to the main strip.
 
Also found that if you had been to the Pallas Hotel before you were treated like an old friend but if you were new there you were ignored. 
 
I am now on a one woman campaign to get this hotel to wake up and smell the coffee!  You can't treat your guests like this, they come on holiday to relax, not to be stolen off of, ripped off with the food and stranded in the middle of some olive groves with no entertainment!

to far from the strip long walk ,clean ,very basic ,expensive pool bar ,would i go back no

Ashley S           

Hey Leanne, so you both been there before? ive been looking for reviews on the net and its seems ok, not sure how far it is from the main strip tho.

we'll defo have to all go out for a drink one night !

Leann B           

Me and my fella are going on the 21st, 11:30pm flight from Gatwick! I think it will still be pretty mad, my mate went in Oct last year and said it was still pretty busy! We are staying in the Pallas too!

Debbie B           

Karras appartments very popular with the Irish - good clean fun atmosphere - 3 of my friends stayed there and had the best time.  The pool bar is brilliant with Taki at the helm and George and Zula following.  Brilliant atmosphere, plus he never kicks you out of bar he stays standing until you fall down lol.

 
They are a good 20mins walk from main strip but worth the walk - shops and restaurants all the way.  Beach around the corner also.
