“Good location and beach.”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in Zervas Beach Hotel in June 2011. It has nice pool, cool watersports centre and clean beach. Breakfast was very basic: ham, juice, yoghurt. Almost all rooms have sea view. Hotel has free WI-FI but only next to the reception. In general hotel is very basic but it's really ok if you are not planing to sit all day in it.

Just got back from vacation in stalida(stalis) We spend a really great time.Kosta(owner) is a bit lasy but the other stuff was really nice and helpfull.The hotel has amasing pool and water sports services.Broadly speaking its good a balance of price and service you getting. Most visitors nowadays are Russian speaking(i guess Kosta shifted towards russians a couple years ago, probobly coz they have a longer vacations seasons)

Firstly it was horrendously difficult to book because you cannot book it in england anymore. the owner Costa has ensured only russian travel agents sell rooms so the ruski girls stay here for his own benefit. he gives them free rides in his boat etc . there was at one time a nice mixture of people stay here. this was our third time here and our last, the place also looks very tired and dated. greek kids can splash jump dive and bomb in the pool and it doesnt matter but if the kids are english you are told to go to the sea to do that !!! shame really , nice location , maria is lovely but bad memories spring to mind now we will be looking elsewhere from now on, there are plenty of hotels and apts much nicer and cleaner in Stalis ...genuine opinion..

The location is very nice, simple rooms, horrible breakfast.
The owner Costas is a greedy man and he will do anything so that you will spend money on his water sports.
And yes, is a pervert old man.
I advise anyone that wants a good holiday to avoid Zervas Beach Hotel.
There are plenty nice hotels in Stalida.

Just returned from the Zervas beach hotel in Stalis, the hotel is basic but clean and the staff are very very friendly. The rooms are small but the views from the balcony are ideal.
The pool area is very nice and leads down to a superb beach where the owner "Kostas" runs water sports.
The hotel bar is run by a very friendly couple "Nickos and Lyndsey" who will go out of their way to chat and make you feel welcome.
The hotel is ideally situated, close to all the bars and resturants within walking distance.
The owner Kostas even let us stay in our room late because our flight was late in the evening at no extra charge. the hotel is made up of about 75% Russian the rest british but everyone seems to speak english.
The only down side i would say is the breakfast, dont think you can really call it bed and breakfast, some ham, cheese and bread. apart from that i would recomend this hotel and stay there again..

This was our 10th visit to Stalis and I can't believe we have not found this hotel before.
We booked it a week before travelling and it was great. Our room ,although on the small side and basic, was kept clean and we were only a few metres from the pool area and another few metres to the beach.
The hotel has guests from many different european countries, but it is small and very friendly. We had my youngest son (11)with us and there were only a couple of other kids there but he spent all his time on the beach or in the pool and didn't once complain of being bored.
The owner, Kostas, is usually around as he runs different kinds of water sports from the beach. The pool bar is run by a lovely lady called Maria, who made us feel so welcome.
Despite its very central location it was quiet at night.
This is a great hotel if you just want to spend a week relaxing in the sun.
We will definitely return to this hotel, hopefully later in the summer, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I have just returned from a great holiday in the zervas beach hotel in the friendly resort of Stalis. Having did a little research on the hotels which had reviews on this website I decided this hotel would be the ideal place to stay to just chill for a week. I have to say I was not disappointed at all.The room was cleaned with fresh linen and towels each day. If you have never stayed in greece or any of the greek islands before you will normally be a little disappointed with the rooms on your first experience,however I would definitely say at the zervas it was above average for a 3 star rating.Only downsides if I had to be picky were the small balcony,however we did have a pool and sea view,and maybe the shower cubicle being small with the next to useless shower net. I want to mention like other reviewers before the friendliness of Maria who ran the pool bar,a lovely girl always with a smile on her face.Also Kosta the hotel owner,a good bloke who let us keep the room on when we had a late flight home on the last day for no extra cost.Yanni and Theresa who ran the hotel bar at the front of the hotel were friendly people also.Anyone who likes good food should try the italian Amici restaurant,a 2 minute walk to the right as you walk out of the hotel. Loadsa other good restaurants in the resort to try and chillin bars and a couple of music bars. I will finish this review by saying I have been abroad loads of times and have never felt compelled to write a review before.Also anyone into watersports has it on the doorstep with Kosta and couple of his mates having a speedboat to pull those doughnuts and paragliding and also the usual jetbikes for hire.
