This was the perfect hotel for my week away, having recently lost a loved one and needing some quiet space in the sun to recover, I found the Castelli crew warm and friendly. I felt very well looked after and had the opportunity to enjoy the tranquil setting without lots of noise or children. The natural flora and fauna make it a pleasure to relax in, whereby butterflies and birds fly about and add to its natural calm and peaceful charm. The breakfast is very good, rooms comfortable and clean and generally an all round good service. If you are wanting a wild party type holiday, this isn't the place for you, whereas if you are looking for a naturally pretty environment, where the ambience is quiet, amongst olive groves, then Castelli is the perfect place where you'll receive an excellent service.

Hotel - Our room was a little small but very nice. The reception and pool area were lovely and modern. The breakfast is continental and there is a good choice. The location is suprisingly quiet considering its closeness to Laganas - which we avoided. Instead we opted for Agios Sostis (left out of the hotel).
The owners/staff are the friendliest and most helpful we have ever met while on holiday- especially Spiros. He must be half-man half-machine as he seems to work 24/7 and is still cheerful and friendly.
Places to visit - Cameo Island is a must. It has a beautiful pebbled cove. It costs 4€ each (this includes a drink). Agios Sostis beach is lovely and Agios has some lovely restaurants and views. There are lots of trips available (from excursion companies near Cameo Island and in Agios Sostis).
Restaurants - we would recommend La Marinara (across from the hotel) and Aperitto (in Agios Sostis). We also visited Bougainvileas (not sure of the spelling) which we weren't keen on.

A wonderful place to stay, charming and friendly hosts, we were very well looked after by the Lougaris family and found Castelli to be a relaxing place, away from the hubbub of the town but still only a couple of minutes' walk away. Would definitely return

This was a spontaneous get away that turned out to be perfect. The hotel is in a great location in between the strip and a quieter resort so you have the flexibility to choose what you feel like that day.
The hotel interior is lovely , great simplistic modern design and always spotlessly clean. The bedroom bathroom wasn't great but the friendly genuine service was far better than staying in a larger chain hotel.
Staff were always friendly, asking how we were and whether we required help with anything. They helped with transport to Zante town too. Nothing was a bother you could tell they enjoyed the company of their guests.

There are a few beaches in the area to visit and a little island to explore. We often came back to the pool late afternoon as the beach was a little chilly when the wind picks up.
We hired a quad for €25 which was great to travel a little further and see the rest of the beautiful island.

The food is lovely and immaculately laid each morning. Breads, yogurt,cereal,meat and eggs.

As a last minute late booking I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with this beautiful little place.

Another wonderful holiday. This hotel is simply superb. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely Lougaris family, and their very friendly staff. Location is nicely secluded, but with excellent access to everything you might need. Shops, buses, taxis, tavernas, the beach, boat trips etc etc.
My wife and I stay pool side all day, where the snack bar serves freshly prepared food from 10 until 5. The staff here are really friendly and bend over backwards to prepare your food quickly. The lounge bar is a great place to make friends in the evening, before venturing out to a taverna for your evening meal. Ask Spiros, Maria, or Anastasia about The Acropolis, Scoublos, and Tasos. I've had great food at all three. There is only one bad thing.........you have to go home at the end of your holiday! It's a real wrench to leave. The holiday blues have never hit so hard after The Castelli experience! The hotel is our second home, and we feel lucky to have found it. Finally, don't miss Spiros' BBQ on Saturdays at 1300. It's gorgeous!!

Room Tip: All rooms are brilliant.

I reaffirm every superlative previously mentioned by reviewers!
Spiros, Anastasia, Maria and their wonderful little team work so hard to ensure that guests enjoy their stay and they succeed 100%
Hotel Castelli really is a little gem of a hotel, set in a beautiful area.
I have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous hotel. :)

PS: do visit Scloubou's Taverna for dinner in the evenings. The pleasant walk through olive groves is well worth it. Fabulous food and attentive service!

Room Tip: Ask for first or second floors
