A somewhat belated review for a wonderful week spent at Hotel Zorbas in 21-28 May 2013. We absolutely loved this place. If you arrive at midnight as we did, then reception is closed, but your name and room number is helpfully displayed on a map to the left of reception. We were staying in a one bedroom apartment which had... More

We stayed at Hotel Zorbas last summer. I can say that my family and I had a very nice time at this beautiful hotel. Such relaxing place with good rooms and the only hotel in the area with direct access to sandy beaches. Very good food at the pool area and the most helpful reception staff (many thanks to George!).... More

We stayed for 1 week at Zorbas Hotel and I must say that I really enjoyed my time here as did my family. The hotel is situated in a privilege location just in front of two sandy beaches that we visited almost every day. The swimming pool is huge and kept cleaned every day. We loved the gardens, the little... More

What I love about this place...? Not only the people who are warm and welcoming, fun and adorable, and ever so "at-your-service", but also the pool, the home-made food, the cute little bungalows, the pool bar, the area, the beach, ... Everything!!! And all that at such a fair price, it's almost ridiculous! Thank you again so much for everything!... More

This was the best vacation my wife and I have had since we were married 24 years ago. Everything was beautiful, immaculate and tastefully done. The location was better than we hoped, with beautiful swimming in the pool, and snorkeling right outside our room. The pictures are exactly what we found. The first night we ate there, poolside, and the... More

arrived at 2am to a pitch black site, eventually the owner came out and showed us to our room, the furthest from reception (we would never have found it in the dark). This hotel boasts daily cleaning service but: Day 1: No cleaner, toilet bin not emptied Day 2: No cleaner, toilet bin not emptied Day 3: No cleaner, toilet... More

As other reviews have said, this is the place to come if you want a very quiet and relaxing holiday. Right on the sea front, the views from the pool and bar are beautiful. We had booked a studio but were put in one of the one bedroomed apartments as a free upgrade which was a lovely surprise on arrival.... More

We booked this hotel as we stayed in a villa nearby a few years ago and knew that the location of the hotel is very special, however, the place needs serious updating.Very basic kitchen, one has to plug out one appliance to plug in another (hotplates, kettle, microwave..),, there were one pan and one pot to use so you basically...
