“NEVER EVER EVER AGAIN !!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2011

Okay so the location of the apartments is a very handy 5mn walk down a winding woad to the lively strip but that is the only positive element about mon repos.

3 of us girls came here in the beginning of july 2011. i have never stayed in such an unwelcoming money grabbing environment in my whole life. our studio apartment wasnt the greatest, but thats what you get for a cheapish price, however the bathroom had a mosquito nest in the top corner and when we asked for it to be removed sakis(the owner) was sure we where lying and refused to look. also the shower curtaibn is faaar too short for the base of the shower so be prepared for a nonstop wet bathroom floor (perfect breeding ground for mozzies).
on the 2nd morning we went down to the bar and orderd english breakfasts..omg! never seen or tasted anything so vile for such extortion. we payed for self catering at mon repos yet they work a system where a metal fob is attached to your key which activates the electricity so when you leave of course the fridge and lights will turn off meaning all your food in the fridge will turn bad.
me and my girls where on a tight budget and the air con is 70euros per week so we thought we would just sleep with the windows open and risk getting bitten alive, yet to our shock when we pulled the fridge out their is a hidden radiator behind it to increase the heat levels to con you into buying air con!! dont do it!!

on our second to last night we went down to the bar and asked for a cork screw, as we hadnt been provided with one to open our drinks. zakis got so angry that we werent buying his alcohol and had the cheek to ask for what we should have been provided with in the first place that he opened out wine and threw the cork at me before walking away furiously.

on the last night a promoter came along to drop us tickets to the white party event and this insane zakis man came sprinting from the other end of the pool chasing and swearing at the ticket promoter saying hes not allowed anywhere near the apartments. at this point it was very clear he hated us lol ! we decided to brush it off and have a good last night in zante. but in the morning when i asked for our 50 euro deposit and passport back he charged 30euros for an apparently missing 'mug glass and spoon' when i refused to pay he literally nerly fell over the bar trying to attack me. he never gave the full money but gave (what i thought) was my passport until getting to the airport and reaising he had switched mine over with another girl staying there!!! we had to rush back spending another 30euro on cab, and when we got back he had mysteriously gone out somewhere. we eventually got my correct passport and flew home sweet home.

seriously people dont go here, so many hotels/apartments around the area all close to the strip i wouldnt reccomend this to my enemy

Having stayed a number of times at Mon Repos we were very happy to be back. There is a very friendly atmosphere here. Sakis, Anna, and family are very good hosts.
You can enjoy lazy days on sun beds around the large swimming pool, with plenty of food and drinks available.
The bar is open late into the night if you don't fancy walking into the nearby town.
Hope to be back again soon!

We booked with first choice, never again will i use them, the leg room was pathetic even for myself at 5'1, seats on the plane where in a really bad state some ripped.
Also wasn't that great being kicked out our rooms at 4pm with nowhere to put our luggage for the next 9 hours, missing out on a whole night!!!

We arrived at the hotel at 5am local time a group of 15 (10 boys 5 girls) the boys chose the first drop off and we later found it was the worst possible choice to make,
the second drop off was about a 15 minute walk from the strip (compared to the first a 2 minute walk)
Not just the fact he girls had to travel back from nights out in painful shoes but also having to walk through a unlit dirt track filled with bushes, trees and wild dogs. Not the safest of journeys.
Our room was boiling hot even this early in the morning we spend the first night wondering why our air con wasn't working and why one of our three beds as actually soaking wet and unusable, leaving us to roate who slept on the wooden floor each night
(problem was reported never offered an alternative)
We went to ask about the air con the following morning and had to pay a 25 euro non refundable deposit (we thought it was included i suppose this is first choice's fault not the hotel) It was a pay or die situation though in the 40 degree heat we experienced that week.
We didn't like our hotel pool it was tiny and filled with young chavs.
we used the hotel's pool next to us much friendlier service from the bar and they had no idea we weren't staying there (wish i could remember the name as it probably would have been a better choice)
bit of a older crowd there too more suitable to our age although only 17 at the time im a little more mature :) Good breakfast at that little bar fell in love with the strawberry jam i took loads home!

In all it would do well as a lads getaway i like a little more comfort and service, it is not a safe location for girls particularly on their own, we where lucky to have boys we trusted to walk us home each night.
It was close to the strip witch was nice lots of lovely bars and clubs music was exallent never samey or boring cheveys was a personal favourite of ours, the beach isnt much to look at but it is clean and you can walk out for miles and the water is still shallow witch is fun.
We did also go to the water park it was a lot of fun but you can do it in one day.
Go Lagana to, don't go mon repos!!!!!

Please listen to me when i say dont go here.
Before we booked it i read reviews similar to what im writing now but ignored them. I went to zante in july this year with 5 other friends all 18 and had an amazing time out at night on the strip but the holiday was put down a lot by this hotel.
Arriving, the staff all seemed lovely, the rooms were better than expected. However, second night, as normal on a group holiday we decided to have a few drink on one of the rooms balcony, no music, just chatting when one of the staff members comes flying in through door, shouting at us saying we were having a 'party' which resulted in us the next morning having a written warning being threatend to be kicked out of the hotel. The rep was useless when we saw her once in the whole holiday and said it wasn't her problem.
The pool bar is ridiculously over price a small bottle of water is 2 euros whereas you walk 5m down the road and you can get 6 large bottles for that price. My friend took one bottle down to the pool and whilst she was sunbathing, a staff member crept round the back of the sunbed and stole it, refusing to give it back!
The pool is always surrounded by wasps, for me by biggest fear!
On our last day we weren't leaving till later that evening and our friends we made there offered us their rooms to leave our luggage in and have showers. Whilst my friend was in the shower, a man, came into the room where i was shouting at me in greek, which was in a threatening way and took the key from us and took it to the pool bar. Our friend was threatened to be kicked out of the hotel unless he payed the hotel 30 euros!

All this hotel wants is money! They think that they are a family hotel, but i did not see one family there, its in the centre of laganas strip!

I would defiantly go back to laganas but never to this hotel because it ruined parts of the holiday!

We read the reviews before we booked this 2* Hotel we paid £545 for2 weeks for both of us.We are in our early fiftys it said very basic. Yes it was basic they said on line that you only got one towel and sheets replaced once a week but it ended up twice a week. Our room was cleaned every day by one. It was clean but sheets and towel yes one were very tired but clean. ( my dog had better towels lol) If we had paid more i would have been jumping up and down so we got what we paid for. a couple of days later we had newpeople next door about 9pm they left at 8.30 the next morning never to be seen again.!!I Im very organisged so it all worked out for us. we just had breakfast in our room and made the odd sandwich. The staff seemed ok we were in block A 100yd from the main building but it suited us we had a hire car and were out every day somewhere different.every place we went to for dinner was great we tried to stay away from the strip as we have been there done that many years ago. I have to say a beautiful island would go again would only stay at mon repo if it was very cheap. no frils at all
