I think Paul's missed the point here - if you eat at the Bougainvillea you are treated well - it is after all your money they want, and will go out of their way to get it!
However, if you stay there and eat elsewhere you are treated like dirt - I know, we stayed there 2 years ago and it was a nightmare. We'd booked three rooms, they wanted to try and squeeze us in to two. When we got the third room it wasn't finished. We got covered in plaster dust, the door wouldn't shut/lock - it swung and banged for a week before Yannis got off his lazy backside to fix it - this at 11.45pm!!! We didn't eat there either..........There are far better places in Aghios Sostis who's owners delight in your company whether you spend your hard earned cash there or not.
I'm trying to find Matthews email address - it's on their brochure.
Does anyone know it?
You a member of the Manthos fan club too?
I agree, Aghios Sostis is far better than Laganas!
We go to Zante May and September every year for the past 6 years and spend alot of time at Manthos. I wrote their new brochure for them! And last September the hotel we'd booked let us down and Terry lent us their car to get our cases, and they let us have one of the rooms by the new pool. Nothing is too much trouble for them - fantastic family. Anyway, thanks once again, have a great Christmas!
Hello there Karl.
There are plenty of places to hire Quad bikes in Laganas, and there are plenty of petrol stations. Spiros has a limited number of double beds available - if you book through Thomson specify it at the time of booking - I think they charge a small supplement even though Spiros does't get paid any extra.
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.
Kevin's given up waitering(?) now - I saw him last September. He's gone back on the tools and is working in a garage "Up North"!
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!!
Don't forget you can now book direct:
This was about my 20th visit to Zante - and my last !
