Never ever a 4* star hotel, accomodation was big (2 x double rooms) but not necessary for 2 people, very tatty and shappy decor (see photo's). Staff are pleasant most of the time although Luca can be very tempremental and snappy (bordering on rude) at times, he snapped at us and 4 other guests whilst we were present. Hotel is out on a limb from Tsilivi town, yes it may be only 20 minutes walk but in the extreme heat it is not a pleasant walk especially as only a pedestrian pavement for some of the walk. Get used to being woken up at 5.30am by the resident cockeral or the stray dogs barking or the goats and even the rowdy guests who decide to have a pool party on there return from their night out without any consideration for the other guests (hotel did not attempt to stop this).
Food well....for the most part this was well cooked but lacked variety and imagination from the chef and unless you arrived for you meal first thing then expect your food to be luke warm at best, as for deserts well EVERY SINGLE DAY there is a platter of fruit (apples, oranges and melon), this just gets added to each day. Then theres the ice-cream EVERY DAY, and if your lucky the chef might of made a sponge of some description or added a tin of fruit salad to a very weak jelly. This was repeated for lunch and dinner....boring.
We have been going 'All Inclusive' twice a year for the last 4 years and have never been refused a 'Packed Lunch' if we were going on an excursion or to the beach for the day but at the Filoxenia if you want feeding then you have to stay at the hotel, so go to Zakinthos but don't see the Island ??????.
Take plenty of Mosquito repellent or you will get eaten alive.
