A large group of people from our year group went to stay in zante, all booking different hotels, but from what I have seen and heard I think we definitely got the best deal!
We could not believe how close Sunshine Studios was to the strip, yet at night there was literally no noise and it was not something that would keep you from sleeping.
The rooms were not top luxury, but given that hardly any of our time was actually spent in them they were exactly what we needed. Most of the time was spent by the pool during the day which was really nice and there was a bar which played music, though I only ate there once because there was a little supermarket less than a minute walk away with good cheap food.
The night guard was a really nice guy it must be a joke that someone said he was unfriendly because he was always so welcoming when we came back after a night out and we even shared a few jokes with him! Restaurants nearby on the seafront were really delicious but i can't remember the names, and pedalos just a short walk away meant we could see turtles really close up for very little money. Just one thing to add, be careful about the reps that come in on the first day and try to sell you all the activities. We fell for this initially but ended up having to try to get our money back as walking along the strip during the day we found many more cheaper deals that we would rather have done, so look around first.
Overall one of the best holidays I've ever been on and made better by this hotel!

Room Tip: Try to get one with a balcony overlooking the pool

I can't understand any of the bad reviews I've read about this place. A large group of us went there this summer and we all loved. We couldn't have found anywhere better. Especially the location cannot be matched. It is literally a one or two minute walk to the shop, strip, restaurants, beach and sea. Yet it was still very quiet and peaceful in particular as it isn't huge.
The pictures also don't do it justice. It is so so pretty. Much more so than a lot of the other hotels I saw elsewhere. We had a beautiful view from our balcony with views of the pool and flowers.
I also disagree with the previous review about the security guard. The one we had was absolutely lovely, chatted to us and taught us some Greek when we asked.

Overall I don't think we could have found anywhere better and it made the holiday!

What an AMAZING hotel!!!

The staff were all awesome, perfect location, 2 mins from the strip, a supermarket and the beach. Big Thanks to Chris, Rita, Christina, Bobby and Angela who were always around and helped with everything from hire cars to good places to go. Cool Peppers was a great recommendation Angela, brill steaks :)

This was a lads holiday but there were girls, families and couples. Despite it being generally a 'young' hotel it was quiet in the evenings and at night thanks to the vigilant night watchman that is 'Diego' (not his real name but we called him that becasue he looks like Maradona) What a guy :)

Endless laughs and will definately be there again.

I have travelled to Sunshine for 5 years consecutively now. The Hotel is a very friendly family run business and once you are there, you feel very much part of the family.

The location is fantastic - 2 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from the strip, but you don't hear any noise from the all night revellers. The hotel has very friendly security that really gives you peace of mind while you are out enjoying your holiday.

The pool is lovely and many of the guests make friends at the pool bar where the service is of a very high standard. If you need anything at all the hotel staff will do their best to help you, including hiring a car and giving you tips on the places to go and the places that will be not so good.

I would recommend this hotel to anybody who wants to make the most from their holiday and come away with some fantastic memories.

I recently stayed with a group of friends in the Sunshine Studios in Zakynthos. Being advertised as a hotel suitable for young holiday makers, we were all pleasantly surprised that not only was it very close to the main strip in Zante, but also found it very welcoming. We were asked to keep the noise down twice, but, as it was approaching midnight on each occasion, it was fairly understandable. The bar staff, especially in the evening, were absolutely fantastic. We were offered free drinks on several occasions and made to feel more than welcome. The food provided at the hotel is also very good value for money, and the hotel being located next to the beach only makes it more appealing. All in all, we were all very happy with out stay, and would highly recommend it!
