I recently returned from a weeks stay at the Sunshine studios in Zante.
The hotel is a 5 min walk to both the beach and the end of the strip. So its location couldn't be better!!! You have access to all that you would possibly want plus none of the noise from the main bar area.
Having said that the pool bar can be quite lively in the evening however when all the balcony doors (shutters door, bug screen and main balcony door) are shut you cant hear it!
The rooms themselves are lovely although basic!
We went self catering and all the kitchen had was a hot plate, kettle and fridge. So You couldn't really cook in there.
However this was not an issue as eating out is really cheap! Many of the restaurants offer a 3 course meal plus drinks for 15 euros, the hotel pool bar does a fab hot dog and chips basket for 2 euros 50c and Mr Dallas ( a lovely restaurant on the strip near the hotel) does a souvlaki wrap for 3euros. So you really won't starve.
If you do want to cook there is a reasonably priced supermarket about a min walk away.
We paid for a safe which worked out between the 3 of us roughly a euro a day.
The rooms are spoltless and were cleaned daily, which we didn't expect but which was fab! We also didn't see a cockroach or any other creepy crawly the whole holiday!
The pool is lovely and is extremely quiet until about 2pm when all the clubbers arise!
We didn't pay the extra for the air conditioning unit but as the heat was in the 40's we would definately look into this if we went back as the rooms can get very hot at night.
We had a fab holiday there and to be honest whether like us you were there for a sunny relaxing beach holiday or like some of the other guests a clubbing holiday you really couldn't ask for more for your money!
If we return to Zante, we would definately look into staying here again!
