I'm not sure where the below two reviewers have travelled before but it maybe isn't Greece! You cannot expect anymore from this hotel, we have stayed here twice now and love it! The owners really cannot do enough for you, they are the kindest people! The rooms are by no means "grotty", yes they have an older block where the rooms are not refurbished like the other block, but these rooms are perfectly clean and are just what you would expect for typical Greek accommodation! The location couldn't be better, right in the centre of town! Some of the balcony's over look the street which we loved as you get a feel of village life and get to people watch. The food in the restaurant was lovely, we were even given free wine by the lovely owner! The hotel is very busy and very popular but they are doing a fab job of running it. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone, clean, excellent location, nice rooms and family run!

I think that we might well have been placed in the same studio as
Carol and Richard - or one very similar. We booked Zorbas
through Sunshine and we have been regular customers of theirs
for a good few years. We trusted them - foolishly. None of the
facilities advertised on the Sunshine site were available - none.
I could fill pages with what was wrong. They would not move us,
saying they were full up. We took the view that we were only
sleeping there and made the best of it. But it was a dump.
During our second week we met several English people who
were resident in Georgioupolis and who told us that since the
larger English tour operators had pulled out Zorbas were over
booking and moving the independent travelers into inferior
accommodation when full. The main continental travel operator,
Apollo, has enormous clout - we independents have none.
Zorbas pay something like 20 euros per room per night to lease
these grotty rooms and we were paying 35 per night. Do the
maths. We contacted Sunshine to put our point and as
expected heard nothing. Before booking with them read their
terms = and realise they are liable for nothing - or so they say.
English law, I believe, thinks differently - in that the organisation
whom you pay is responsible. Moot point.

Don't expect to get what you booked, How I would love to write a review on this acommodation
Which we booked 14 months ago!
We booked a one bed apartment on arrival we were shown to the darkest miserable old studio you can imagine. Overlooking the street with the balcony having no privacy whatsoever!
We showed the owner our booking papers explaining we had booked a one bed apartment
Not a grotty studio but she told us to see her in the morning at 9 am. After doing some shopping for essentials we were not happy so asked her to confirm we would be able to move to accommodation we had originally booked but she said no it could be a week or so as they were very busy.
In fairness she knees we were not happy so she took us in her car to another property which we thought was hers but it became obvious they constantly overbook and have to farm guest out to any available accommodation.
This worked in our favour as we has a fabulous two weeks staying at the Hotel Romantica which was a lovely one bed apartment with a a massive balcony and much nicer location.
This could have been a disastrous holiday so be very wary when booking Zorbas!
Having said that the couple were lovely and food in their Taverna was excellent.

On speaking to several other people in resort this is normal practice, there was a group of 12 who checked in joist after us and they ended up being all split up and put in alternative acommodation all round the resort.
This seemed to be common practice in this resort as most people staying at the lovely Hotel a Romantica had booked for Zorbas .

We have just returned from Georgioupolis after 4 weeks holiday.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Zorbas & It gets better every time.
The family & staff can't do enough for you,I had a special Birthday there & the food they did for 12 of us was amazing & they all joined in with some Greek dancing later & bought me Birthday cake.
The rooms are very clean & all you need,we will be back again next year.
Thank you Zorbas !

Good quality accommodation in the beautiful resort of Georgioupolis. Centrally located for the square and the beach. The pool area is quiet and well kept. This is a great location for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: There is no lift so ask for a ground floor room if you have any mobility problems

A friendly family run place. Modern rooms and spacious for Greece. Cleaned and fresh towels and bedding nearly everyday.One of the best restaurants in the resort downstairs. Two minutes from the square and five minutes from the beach. The only noise you can hear is doves in the morning or the church bells on a Sunday !! My wife and i have been going to Greece for the past 30 years and this ranks as one of the best !!

Stayed at Zorba's at the same time as the previous reviewer in May 2013. We loved the location of the apartments, as it was a short stroll to the beach, the square with shops and tavernas, and the bus stop.
The apartment was modern and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the balcony was perfect for people watching. The living/kitchen area was quite dark and sparsely fitted out, although there was a large fridge. We asked for a kettle, iron and wine glasses, which were all essential items! Very little in the way of utensils, but we didn't care about that. Many good places for meals which were very reasonably priced and close to the apartments. We also ate a couple of times at Zorba's and the food was quite good.
The bathroom had a shower cubicle, but no bath. Towels and toilet rolls were changed regularly. The cleaning lady was very hard- working and came every day except Sunday.
The apartments are owned and run by a family, who were friendly and helpful. Eleni seems to do any job that needs to be done - a true multi-tasker.
The pool area was very quiet for a bit of sunbathing in the afternoon, or lying in the shade when it was too hot.
We made sure that we put on plenty of insect repellent in the evenings, but still got a few bites, although this will not prevent us from returning to Georgioupolis, which is a lovely village.
