“First time in Zante”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

First time in Zante and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The apartments are lovely and clean and everybody is so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We absolutely loved it here. The only bad thing was having to leave to come home. The food and drink at the Dias is fantastic...for choice, quality and price. I found my paradise here and we are already looking to come back in September. I have nothing negative to say about this place. You won't regret booking here and I will recommend these apartments to all my friends. Thankyou to everybody here who made our holiday one of the best we've ever had. We'll see you all soon. :)

First time to Zakynthos, and would definately consider coming back to the island.

The whole staff were helpful and friendly, especially the lovely lady who worked exceedingly hard doing the cleaning. The place was very clean, immaculate I would say.

Location wise, apart from being right on the "strip" you couldn't ask for better if you like a resort style holiday, close to the airport, bus stop and the bars and restaurants. The beach is about a ten minute walk - and a lovely beach it is! I would suggest written instructions if your driving to Lidl if your self catering!

Don't expect a full house in your apartment (two hobs and a sink - standard I believe) cooking was different with only two pans and no oven, and toast is not something to try! we didn't have a double bed (which in some ways is a better night sleep!) but the balcony was a lovely addition (and comes as standard) the pool exceedingly clean and never too busy.

We were told you couldn't book independently otherwise we would have considered doing so. Lovely people, nice place, definately one to look for.

Room Tip: It doesnt have a fitness centre or room service! neither or which were missed or wanted :D

Another fantastic holiday at the Dias meeting up with old friends and new. We keep coming back every year because the place is that good. The people, Howard, Linzi, Kalan and Blake, together with Labros and his family are fantastic but there are many more in the resort who make you feel genuinely welcome.
Each time we go back there are little tweaks to the holiday to make it easier for you or even to save money. This includes being able to buy the 6 packs of water at supermarket prices from the lobby.
Every time we go all we want to do is come back!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent but if you can book direct with Labros and you get the top floor which are a...

We travelled independent again this time for three weeks and it was the best holiday ever. It is our second home as its like visiting family. This is all down to our friends that work there.

A massive thanks to Rita for keeping our room so clean. Skerdi for the entertainment and pool bar but mostly to Howard and family, thanks a million buddy for making the place so good. I don't know how you survive on a couple hours of sleep a day.

Already booked for next year.

I honestly cannot praise this hotel enough.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for one week in Septemeber and it was absolutely FANTASTIC!

The location is brilliant. Very close to the main road, which has some great bars and restaurants on.

The hotel is extremely clean, and the rooms are large and well designed. The best part to this hotel however is by far the staff. Howard (who is often mentioned on this page), is honestly one of the most friendly people I have ever met. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. He even invited us and other family on a day out to the local water park (which is great). Skerdi, the bar man is also extremely friendly and helpful.

The hotel restaurant is the best value by far in Kalamaki and serves fantastic food. The staff are very friendly.

The pool area is a sun trap, and is sunny all day long. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone. It is no surprise everyone there is so jolly, and are forever returning, year after year.

We will absolutely be returning to this fantastic hotel. If you are looking for a hotel in Kalamaki, THIS IS THE ONE!

Just had a week at Dias in one of the apartments having eaten at their great restaurant on several occasions on 2 previous holidays in Kalamaki. Our apartment was the best we have had in my 9 visits to Zante and was spotless. The cleaners are amazing and keep the rooms in tip top condition every day. The staff at the pool bar (Howard & Skurdy) are very friendly and we barely found the need to leave the complex apart from a couple of trips to the beach and our daily cake from the bakery lol. The restaurant is amazing and by far my favorite on Zante. There was always spare beds at the pool so no need to come down early and leave a towel lol. We will definitely be going back next year.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.

Arrived home last night after a two week stay, and as always had a great time, the staff were always helpful whatever time of day, rooms were cleaned daily, the bedding and towels were replaced every other day,all rooms have balconies and as we were on the fourth floor had a fabulous view of the sea, there is a great pool bar which is a good place to make friends with fellow guests, we were there long into the night many times!!!, it is well placed for visiting the many bars and restaurants on the main strip, but not so close to hear any noise, an excellent pool area with plenty of sunbeds and parasols for those who needed then

Room Tip: All rooms are good and there are only 24, the first 3 floors have a lift going to them
