Myself and my partner stayed at the beautiful Meandros Boutique Hotel and Spa in Zante from June 17th to June 24th to celebrate my 30th birthday 🙂
The hotel looks beautiful as soon as you arrive so first impressions were great! We were welcomed by staff instantly and our bags were taken care of. We were welcomed by a glass of juice and as we checked in Nanai (hope I spelt this right) on reception told us about the main facilities of the hotel!
We stayed in room 212 at the back of the hotel. The room was the most spacious hotel room I have ever stayed in!
We also had a kitchenette which included a kettle, hob, sink and fridge 🙂
We had two single beds pushed together, the bed was adequate but OMG the pillows are the BEST pillows ever! I wish I had them at home! Room was very quiet and we had no problem sleeping.
Bathroom was spacious and toiletries provided, including a hairdryer and scales too. The drains did smell occasionally but nothing too bad.
Balcony had table and chairs and a lovely view too. We were able to catch the last of the sun up there 🙂
TV has BBC world news.
Air con worked perfectly 🙂
Thankyou to the maid who kept our room spotless 🙂
The pool is of a great size and there is a jacuzzi and kids pool too! We were always able to get a sunbed and there was a nice chilled atmosphere around the pool. There is a giant chess set too 🙂 I loved that you are able to watch planes land as you sunbathe!
There is an outside bar to order food and drinks from.
For a small hotel there was plenty of choice and the food always looked fresh. I am vegan and I loved how the hotel made effort to provide for my needs. Everything is labelled clearly so you can check for any allergies.
One can sit inside or outside and dinnertime was never busy.
There is also a wide choice of food available at the pool bar and my partner was happy to eat there everyday as it was so tasty!
A few nights out of the week the hotel had singers who were very good, however as the hotel was so quiet, there was a lack of atmosphere.
I have to say the Greek Night on the Friday night was amazing. The dinner is moved to the outdoor bar and there is sooooo much choice! There is greek dancing and singing and it was just so much fun! Thankyou!
The hotel is in Kalamaki. I liked the location of the hotel as you can get to the beach with a five minute walk and along the way there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants ( check out Cave Bar and Crystal Beach bar).
Zante Town is a 10 min bus or taxi ride away and if you are looking for nightlife Laganas is only a 10 min drive away too. Kampi is the best for sunsets and took us around 45 mins to drive to.
Meandros is definitely the most friendly hotel I have ever stayed in! The staff work so hard and they really make the hotel! Special thanks to Maggie and Christina for making our stay so special 💖 You are both an asset to the hotel and are so friendly 🙂
The hotel even surprised me with a bottle of champagne delivered to the room for my birthday!
Small but adequate and thankfully they have air con!
We did go and check the spa out and it is out of this world beautiful, such a little hidden gem but unfortunatly we didn’t get time to use the spa!
There is a courtesy room and luggage room for your last day too 🙂
Room for improvement
I honestly think this hotel has got everything spot on! The only thing I can think of as an improvement would be if tea and coffee could be provided in the room.
Also if plates could be cleared quicker around the pool as sometimes we would order food at 11am and by 4pm the plate would still be there. But in all honesty we could have taken them back ourselves 🙈
