I had a lovely holidays in this hotel. Hotel is basic, but always clean and well kept. Nice swimming pool and amazing location just next to the beach. Food was lovely, especially dinners were always excellent (starter, main dish and desert/fruit). Breakfast buffet style, very simple. Overall great experience, I totally recommend to visit this hotel and Zakynthos in general!

Small family-run hotel in a quiet location near the beach. The beach is usually closed after 6 or 7 p.m. due to nesting turtles caretta caretta. Simple yet delicious breakfast, dinners are lovely. The pool is smaller, but if I recommend you to go to the beach which is marvelous. Kalamaki is a bit sleepy village, so if you love... More

Stayed here for 1 week mid September 2013. The title of my review says it all. It was fantastic. Rooms small & basic,but clean. Breakfast again was basic, but it did the job.The pool area was clean,spacious & with lovely views all around. A small private path lead from the pool directly to the beach in a couple of minutes....

The position of this hotel is excellent so close to the beach and only a short walk to the Kalamaki strip. The breakfast... More
