Went to Zante on holiday with my partner and 2 friends, we had trouble with our original hotel so we decided to move to the Vanessa. The staff managed to find us a family room which was clean and tidy with modern interior, Can not fault this hotel in anyway. Would recommend this hotel & will be returning next year!!... More

Didn't stay here but i can reccomend a visit to the bar. They have the longest happy hour known to man. The staff are friendly & i visited every night for my regular fix. They also serve good snacks/meals & ice cream for a very reasonable price. Great for families on a budget. Friendly staff too

My partner and I stayed in Kalamaki for 10 days and visited Vanessa's bar a few times (and last year too!). Great range of cocktails and very well priced :). Definitely worth a visit just for the cocktails alone!

Our family stayed at this family run hotel in Zante and have to say that the owners/staff could not have been more helpful or hospitable. The hotel is clean and well run and whilst the rooms are basic they are spacious and extremely affordable. We really enjoyed our week's holiday and are definitely hoping to go back to this hotel...

I stayed with my wife in Kalamaki for 2 weeks and although we didn,t stay in this hotel we had a cooked breakfast at the hotel on 6 or 7 mornings. The hotel advertises a full breakfast for 3.95 euro. The breakfast service is first class and included in the 3.95 you get tea or coffee and a glass of... More

It was very fine for us to make the booking to this hotel. It has a clean pool, pretty large, close to the beach(5-7 minutes walk), close to minimarkets&restaurants (Yamas, Tazies)...3 km from airport, 4 km from Laganas, 5-6 from Zante town(ferry). It is on the main road of Kalamaki, front rooms have a nice view to the pool and... More

Myself and my family appreciated the hospitality and speedy fixing of our air con in the middle of the night! Despite being a rather lively party of 6 we each felt very welcome and home at Vanessa. My week long stay here was wonderful, If I ever return to Greece I will think of you :) x

I never actually stayed here but stopped off for a refreshment or two and was very impressed! Thank you, will definitely recommend and will return in the future! Great offer on Happy Hour drinks too. Relaxed atmosphere, very welcoming and not far from where I was initially staying so made a point of trying out the Vanessa.
