We stayed in the Sirene Hotel of the Sirene/Austrailia Complex and it completely exceeded all our expectations. The pictures provided really do not do it justice and it is infact a fairly modern and very clean and welcoming place. The rooms are simple but nice, they were spacious and had a fridge, tv, balcony with tables and chairs with comfortable beds and were always cleaned each day and given new sheets and towels. In fact the cleaner was even prepared to come in at 12 and clean whilst we still slept (this was a lads holiday). The only slightly negative part of the rooms was the bathroom which was pretty small and the shower only had the base part with no curtain or glass which meant that the floor always got wet, there was a drain in the floor of the actual bathroom yet this didnt do much. The staff at the hotel were pleasant and there was always someone at the reception - even at 5/6 am when coming back from the clubs. Breakfast was ok, it only went until 10am so we didnt always make it, but it consisted of bread, ham, cheese, chocolate bread, cereal and orange squash. So not amazing, but for what it was it was alright. By far the best thing about the hotel is it's location. It was only about a 10 minute taxi drive from the airport. From the hotel you are within 30 seconds of walking you are at the beach which has many bars and restaurants along it with sunbeds and pedalo renters outside. About 10 minutes walk along the beach brings you to the main strip which has all the clubs and bars and shops and restaurants that you need. The two hotels also share a pool which is also better than what the photographs show, it was always kept clean and at a perfect temperature and had loads of sunbeds around the edge and the bar next to it played music throughout the day. I would definitley recommend this hotel for a lads/girls trip to zante, but not so much for a family or older people as its quite noisy at night due to being close to the strip as well as being mostly full of young people coming back late. If you're thinking of booking your flights and transfer through travelrepublic, i can highly recommend it as everything went so smoothly, and even though our flight there was delayed by 2 hours, the travel agent for the taxi was still there waiting for us and gave us a welcoming pack that also told us the time we would be picked up. Overall an amazing holiday!
