stayed at Vanessa 4 times now and just cant fault the hotel in any way, it is situated right in the middle of the relaxing resort of kalamaki with good restraunts, bars and shops near by in this lovely spread out resort . the rooms are spacious clean and well above average with all the things you need for a comfortable stay in kalamaki you get free . a/c and a safety deposit safe in all rooms as well as a tv , microwave and fridge freezer . the rooms have good size bathrooms with shower etc. the balcony are a good size and most have superb views over the pool area and out to sea . as for the staff we have always found them superb, friendly and helpful at all times. the pool area is great with a reasonable sized pool and a small childrens pool with a small water slide. there are always plenty sun loungers available around the pool where you can relax in the shade or take in the lovely greek sunshine.
as for drinks and snacks or even a full breakfast this hotel caters for all with brilliant value , we ate full English breakfast on a couple of occasions this year and couldn't believe the price, 3-50 euros and you got fruit juice, coffee or tea and toast with your bacon eggs sausage etc. we also found the bar prices vry chap with a pint of local mythos lager/beer 2 euros and long drinks such as vodka coke etc for 2-50.
the bottom line is WE CANT WAIT TO GO BACK, JUST LOVE THE HOTEL AND THE RESORT!!!!!

Stayed at the Hotel Vanessa last year with 3 friends, lovely place to stay, clean, spacious with a lovely pool. Couldn't have asked for more friendly staff. No extra cost for air con and safety boxes in your room, The cleaners do an excellent job and it'd done when they say.

The hotel is located in the middle of Kalamaki next to the top restaurants of the island. The beach, 5 minutes walking, is beautiful and housed some turtle's nests. The staff was very helpful giving us restaurant's recommendations and day trips. The hotel has a nice size swimming pool and the rooms are spacious and clean. Just a great 6 days stay at Zakynthos.
