We needed a relaxing week away, ( we waited until the children returned to school ), and at the Zante Star that is exactly what we got, So glad we have found this little gem of a hotel... we read all of the trip reports before we went and began to wonder if there was some sort of scam going on, but on arriving at the Hotel and being warmly greeted by Eireine we soon realized all that we had read, that was good, was true ... This has to be the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in and the Pool was surrounded by sunbeds, so no need to be up at dawn to get one!! All of the staff are wonderful and friendly from Anna and Tula in the hotel bar to Helen and Eireine in reception...
The walk to the beach is about and 8 minute stroll and to the town about 12 minutes, and to be honest the fact that you are a little outside of the hubub is only a bonus.
Our personal favourite restaurants were: Sweet Revenge, Benikos and Premier, although there were many others to chose from... having said that the food at the hotel is gorgeous, and so if you want to take it even easier, just eat in.
There is Pool, Table Tennis, and Table football and many board games, cards, dominos and loads of books for anyone to use....
be sure to try out the cocktails during Happy Hour at only 3 euros each, a real bargain.To be honest the prices in Zante were a pleasant surprise and we didn't need as much money as we thought we would..
Thank you Zante Star for a wonderfully relaxing, sunny, happy holiday... we will return, probably with others :) x
