First of all this hotel isn’t 5* Despite that we had a wonderful holiday. It is the staff that makes difference! Lots of thanks to Alexia- she was always there. You just have to look around for a second and she’d appear to answer your questions, to help or just to have a nice chat with you. The service at all the restaurants and bars was excellent, I have no words to express how impressed we were! Thank you guys for making our holiday memorable! Mariya and Georgi

7 years ago we went for the first time to this hotel (2nd time Zante) and we loved it. This year we went back and we loved it even more! Just one word : excellent in many ways. Great for the kids with the waterpark and the many bars for the adults :-) But they have something special and that's there staff, they are amazing - all of them. Friendly, helpfull, ... Really want to thank Alexia this year because she's great! We lost our heart to Zante and her (especially our little guy). Next to this special thanks to the kitchen staff who helped me a lot. I have to eat glutenfree and they were really amazing! All of them, but especially Mimoza is a lovely warm lady who knows what she's doing! The reception is also great, they help you with many things. Nothing is too much! The hotel is made by a lot of things but most important the staff who can make you feel a litte like 'home'. Thanks for that! Don't doubt if you read reviews, because some people always have something to say or have comment on everything, don't doubt! You won't regret it. We will come back, someday ;-)

Having read many reviews on TripAdvisor before booking this holiday, I was reasonably prepared for what to expect. I must agree with many that said it doesn't deserve 5 stars as a hotel but as a holiday experience it fully deserves 5 stars. The welcome from the staff on arrival made us feel fully at home and we were made to feel special. Alexia did a magnificent job on the meet and greet and we wish her all the best in her Nursing Degree. I feel a little embarrassed that I didn't get the names of the waitresses that provided such wonderful service, there was always a welcoming smile and when I tried my few words of Greek they were very appreciative and helped me along. The cleaning staff were a credit to the hotel and the island. I have never known cleaning staff calling twice a day to check if everything was OK and did we need fresh towels. The Waterpark was a welcome distraction, although we didn't use the slides, we did make use of the Lazy River and the large pool. Beds were always available around the pool. The Evening entertainment at the waterpark was reasonable and created a party atmosphere, even though the hall wasn't full. The food was quite varied and you would struggle to find something you didn't like. We like to eat a little later and there was always plenty of fresh food available. The drinks included were not of a particular high standard but we always found something we could drink. We did make use of our visit to the Elia Restaurant and the food was outstanding, along with the service. The evening spent here was special. Finally I must finish with a thank you to all the staff which made our holiday truly special and you are the best asset this hotel has. Diolch yn fawr I ti.

We travelled as a large family and friends group for a wedding celebration. If you have youngsters the you cannot go wrong with Aqua Bay Hotel. Everything here is catered for families, great food choices for everyone, spacious rooms, try and book a ground floor room that opens onto a pool for ease of access and spotlessly clean everywhere. All staff here are incredible and cannot do enough for the guests. Hotel is in a perfect spot for the waterpark next door (very safe for little ones and older kids / adults - both catered for) and for a level walk into Tsilivi for further places to eat, bars, the beach, shops etc, Thank you for a wonderful and memorable week.

We first visited this hotel in 2019 after a lot of searching for an all inclusive hotel that was in walking distance of shops, restaurants and the beach as well as an on-site waterpark. We decided to book again for Aug 22, and it did not disappoint. Before going I had read some disappointing reviews so was a little concerned. The hotel is spread out over different areas so never feels to crowded, we had a family room which was really close to the waterpark so was great. Rooms - Very comfortable, great aircon. Food - We never had a problem, great choices, lots of fresh fruit and salads. Drinks - Yes the beers and spirits are local but that didn't bother us one bit. Staff - Everyone we met was friendly and they all seem to work really hard to make you happy. Waterpark- Great fun -what more could you want. Highly recommend the walk down to the beach and visit the Abracatabra, lots of sunbeds and food is amazing. Sea is calm and crystal clear. My son hired a paddle board there for 10 euros for a hour (he actually had 1.5hrs) which I thought was great value. We took a trip to Kefalonia which was amazing - use Nefis Travel such a knowledge guide we had. We also hired a dune buggy to tour around the island - defiantly recommend. Overall I would recommend this hotel and I hope to visit again.

AMAZING FAMILY HOLIDAY HOTEL!!! THE STAFF The people here are lovely and so good with the kids. THE ROOM Cleaned everyday with fresh towels, no issues when my daughter had a few accidents all was replenished. The bathroom was a bit odd it had a drain near the toilet which was a bit smelly but we don’t spend a lot of time in our room and it didn’t bother us too much. Floors are really slippery for the kids so just line with a lot of towels. Air con was top notch, robes and slippers and water in the fridge. Tea and coffee in the room too, we had a balcony which didn’t get any sun so hard to get stuff dry but it was private and had no people traffic for when the kids where asleep so was amazing for that. THE FOOD as far as all inclusive goes probably one of the best I have been to (and I’ve been to alot) don’t get me wrong there are larger all inclusive dining halls but the quality is never as good and there was something for everyone. Kids will be kids and sometimes don’t eat what you want them to, food is always so different abroad, but we are very chilled and for a week if they want to live on bread rolls and ice cream then so be it. They loved the fruit and pasta and they ate so much more than I expected, the kitchen staff are great and happy to accommodate dietary requirements. THE KIDS CLUB we don’t like the thought of leaving our littles as they are still so small but the kids club here was very open air and ran a variety of different activities. Unfortunately it wasn’t very busy most kids had gone back to school. We popped in a few times and our eldest did arts and crafts with Georgia (Tui) she was amazing we sat with her which was nice to get her out the sun for a bit and she loved Georgia. I did hear that it was very different with the suites next door, very much a closed door policy on parents but more children attended. THE WATER PARK AMAZING!!! I don’t know what I expected but I’ve walked farther to get to breakfast in hotels it’s so close, no matter if you are hotel or suites. It’s so good, all inclusive drinks and snacks available and the snacks are individually prepared and boxed/wrapped which we liked. The only negative is there isn’t a lot in terms of snacks for the small ones they have big baguettes and pasta/salad pots pizza and chips but 1 year olds don’t really eat that. So I would recommend taking a tuppawear and filling up at breakfast/lunch with smaller rolls, pastries, fruit. Because we all know if there are no snacks your a terrible parent 🤣 The big slides (what we managed to get time for) where great all really close together and the kids area is unbelievable. The pool is deep enough to land in from a slide but shallow enough for the kids to walk about in. There is also a bar in the kids area too! (I know what a bonus). There is also a large pool with a bar and a lazy river all where great and we used them all daily. THE DRINKS I never expect much from all inclusive drinks. The beer was not bad though, they had a huge variety of cocktails alcoholic and kids, the coke etc all a bit naff as it’s local stuff and a bit flat. The staff will go above and beyond to find the right concoction of drinks for the kids though. Wine was not for me, I would have been happy to buy a glass but you could only purchase by the bottle. They do have ciders and alcopops on offer for an additional cost though. They also had sparkling wine in some cocktails but you couldn’t have a glass of sparkling wine you had to pay for this which was a bit odd I thought. EVENING ENTERTAINMENT kids disco 8.30 every night pretty standard kids loved it, they have a bit of an arcade thing going on near the entertainment bar, some bits out of order but has pool tables etc. we didn’t see much late night entertainment as kids go to bed early. But some singers we heard where great! THE TOWN if you have young kids go out of the hotel and turn left, keep walking until you get to the tsilivi town when you see arcades on the left walk down the hill on the left and you will find a massive bouncy castle park it was great in the evening €6 for the toddler and €3 for the little one. Also has a bar with lots of drinks 🍹 We had two meals out one was an Italian at il gusto I would 100% recommend lovely place and again great with the kids. AL A CARTE this was one of my fave meals! Actually so good! Normally I find them a bit naff but this one is great definitely book it. I had steak and husband had the chicken the kids had pasta and fish and chips all was very good! WATERPARK BBQ THEMED NIGHTS So other than your main restaurant you had invitations daily to go to the themed nights at the waterpark where you could eat outside and they had bbqs cooking fresh food. But unfortunately when we tried to book one a couple of days into the holiday we where told they are all fully booked until the day we where due to leave. But the room opposite us had a ticket hanging out the bottom of the door (where they got posted) the next day inviting them to one) so I don’t know why we couldn’t go but they had an invite. A bit strange but we just went out instead. CLEANLINESS The staff here don’t stop cleaning and I mean all the time, the toilets in the waterpark are all cleaned regularly and as is everything else. So overall the holiday was amazing. I can honestly say I would go back and I always go somewhere different. If your thinking of booking do it you will not regret it. And if you worried about the negative reviews don’t be! You can’t please everyone they are probably the people like the ones we had the pleasure of meeting on the flight who complain constantly about the fact you have children with you. Sometimes people want a private jet without paying for it.

Just returned today from 2 weeks at the Aqua Bay Hotel. Amazing place!! We have 2 children aged 12 & 15 and both thoroughly enjoyed their stay also. The accommodation is perfect, modern and very very clean. These are cleaned daily and also supplied with bottled water. We were lucky to be given a downstairs swim up room which was an added bonus. Nevertheless, we spent most of our time in the water park and a few days at the beach at ‘Abracatabra Beach Cafe’. This is a very quiet beach and only a 5 minute walk and offer perfect waters to swim, paddle board, snorkel etc (see photos). The sun beds here are also free . Staff at the hotel are amazing. They literally cannot do enough for you. They all work so hard and long hours but are a great team. Alexia is fantastic on making sure guests are happy. She is always present at all meal times and takes time to talk to all guests. The entertainment team are superb. They provide a full day of activities in the water park for both adults and children to get involved. Aqua Zumba, darts, table tennis, French Bowls and water volleyball throughout the day. Again, these guys work so hard and have a real passion for what they do. Denys, Danni, Charmain, Sabastian are brilliant and deserve medals. The entertainment at night is okay. The best nights we saw were the Michael Jackson tribute and Zumba tribute. Great fun. Food is excellent throughout. Great variation throughout all sittings. In addition, most nights have themed food evenings (Mediterranean, American, Italian, Eastern). You have to book onto these and these are held outside at the Waterpark. This was great as it offered another option other than the hotel restaurant. You also have one sitting at the Italian restaurant in your stay. Food here was exceptional. Waterpark is fantastic! All food and drink here is also inclusive which is a bonus! The bar man ‘Vision’ at the cocktail bar is great. He also tends bar at night in the entertainment stage. He is superb! So there you go! If you want an excellent family holiday with good food, staff and other guests, then this place is perfect.

We were in August 2022. We enjoyed our stay at the Aqua Bay Hotel. From the first to the last day the service was outstanding. It is worth appreciating a lot of empathy and a positive attitude. The food is diverse, very tasty and everyone will find something for themselves. Great Aqua Park at the hotel. Noticeable high care for safety on the slides. Efficient accommodation even in the earlier hours, the staff tried to make the guests wait as short as possible, cold drinks for new guests are available in the reception area. Cleaning without reservations, once a day with water bottles delivered to room refrigerators. Housekeeping also appeared in the afternoon with a discreet question whether something needs to be cleaned up. From the hotel to the nearest beach, it is a 13-minute walk through a beautiful olive grove along a well-marked path. Nearest beach - a mixture of stones and gravel, but 5 minutes walk to the left completely sandy beach with fairly shallow water perfect for children. A hotel worth recommending. Special thanks to Alexia and all hotel and Aqua Park staff.

Stayed at Aqua Bay hotel for two weeks. Family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Had a lovely time. Hotel staff excellent, polite, friendly, engaging. couldn't do enough for us. Rooms cleaned to a high standard daily with daily towel changes and more if needed. Plenty of sunbeds available and no early morning sunbed reserving (although this was starting to creep in a bit towards the end of our second week). We always managed to get sunbeds however without getting up at the crack of dawn. Daily pool towel changes was a nice touch too! The water park is good fun for both kids and adults. Aqua Bay pools are a quieter retreat from the waterpark which is literally next door. The kids were back and forth to the waterpark throughout the day. Although most all inclusive soft drinks are local brands, Pepsi Max is also included in AI at the walnut bar. There are 15 AI cocktails on the menu. Mango Mule, Pina Colada and Safe on the Beach were my favourite. There are 3 all inclusive options for eating at night, the garden restaurant (buffet outside at the waterpark), Elia restaurant (once per visit) and the main dining room. During the day in between meals, snacks are available from the walnut bar and water park. A special thank you to Alexia (guest relations) Indrit and Anna in the main restaurant, Dora in Elia restaurant and the main restaurant (which is excellent- the best Al a carte restaurant we have come across on all inclusives so far) and Demitri on the Walnut Bar who were all great fun and helped especially to make our holiday special! All the staff are extremely friendly and hardworking though, in every part of the hotel, whatever their role. The only minor negatives are that the children's beds are a bit short for older teenagers and that the entertainment could be a bit more varied (a lot of singing and dancing acts) but neither of these would stop us from returning in the future. The air conditioning in our room worked well and we had control of the temperature (room 111). I would definitely recommend the hotel for an enjoyable, relaxing family holiday!
