“So Special”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We'll be returning this June for our 8th visit to Hotel Venus and Kalamaki and can't wait!
This hotel and all the staff certainly deserve their award for Best Service.
Since our first visit back in 2006, we realised that we had found somewhere very special, and this is why we return every year. And every year just gets better and better, with something more added to improve our stay.
Everyone is so friendly yet professional, and deliver service with a smile. And if something isn't quite to your expectations, or you need help of any kind, you only have to ask, and Nick will be right on the case to help.
All your usual holiday needs are well catered for, such as clean comfortable rooms, great food, nice clean pool, good entertainment, delicious cocktail bar etc. etc. (I could go on and on), but that something 'extra special' is what's so unique at the Hotel Venus.
If you haven't been yet, just book it and you'll see what we mean.
Roll on June 13th!!

My Husband and I have stayed here twice now and I have to say it is one of our all time favourite places to go. After being to Kalamaki before and hearing about the Venus we decided to give it a go. We first stayed here in October 2010 just the two of us and had a lovely room over looking the pool area (after e-mailing the hotel direct). Our second holiday here was in October 2012 and this time we had my 14 year old step daughter with us as it was a family holiday to celebrate my husbands 40th Birthday. We had been upgraded to a lovely family suite, which was a lovely surprise and was really very nice. Rooms are kept lovely and clean with plenty fresh towels etc, cleaners work very hard. From the moment we arrived in the early hours of the morning we felt most welcomed, the staff really are the most friendliest you will find anywhere and they never forget a face. The hotel is in an ideal location, not too far from the beach or the resort centre so eveything is really with in walking distance. The pool area is lovely and kept very clean and tidy with the best pool bar ever, the snacks really are to die for. You can also eat out in the evening over looking the pool area which we did one night and it really was lovely, again the food was superb. There is a lovely bar at the venus and the cocktails are amazing, and such good value, we often came back here after having our meal out. Breakfasts are also very good and with plenty of choice we thought. The main thing I think that keeps drawing people back here is Nick and his staff, they really make your holiday feel special and really go out of their way to make sure you have the best time. Can't wait to return again one day soon.

Last July was our second year staying at the Venus. The welcome we got was on par to our first visit the year previous, only difference was that we knew people by their first names. It was like we were all old friends. We could not fault the Venus in any way. The breakfast is excellent. On the days we stayed by the pool we were spoilt for choice with the range of food on offer during the day. We love to try out other restaurants in Kalamaki, but found ourselves eating a number of nights at the poolside restaurant in the Venus as the food and service was excellent. The atmosphere at the Venus is so relaxing all due to the care and attention shown by Nick, his family and staff. Nothing is any trouble to them. We like to go to the beach also and were delighted that it is only a 10 min walk down from the Venus. We would have no problem recommending the Venus. Looking forward to July next for our 3rd visit.

Our annual summer holiday is usually spent trying different places some good some bad but since we went to the Venus hotel in summer of 2007 we have returned every year, we cannot fault this hotel in any way the staff are all so polite and would go to the moon and back to ensure your receiving a good service, the breakfast is the best bed n breakfast spread I've seen. All food is amazing with a very good selection to choose from. Evening entertainment is limited to bingo, quiz night and other low key nights but everybody gets involved, on a wednesday night there is a bbq night and they have a singer and disco which is always an entertaining night. I am looking forward to returning this coming August and spending time with other returning guests we have become good friends with, we all ensure that we return within the same couple of days to make sure we spend the time together.

We spent our third year at the Venus and yet again we couldn't fault it. This hotel is second to none and we intend to go back next year for our daughters wedding. It's the perfect hotel if you want cleanliness, friendship, brilliant food, fantastic prices, fantastic breakfast, hardworking wonderful staff, relaxation and a really brilliant family atmosphere. Nick, his family and staff are like extended family to us and NOTHING is to much trouble. Anyone giving this hotel a bad review or finding fault with anything have obviously not spoken to Nick or the staff as they will go out of their way to deal with any problems you have or anything your not happy with. We have booked 7 rooms already for the wedding and my daughter means everything to us so we wanted her wedding to be special and we know thats just what it is going to be. I am a christian and don't tell lies so please give this hotel a go. You won't regret it i promise you and if you want more details e-mail me and I will be only to happy to help. Roll on next year it can't come quick enough. VENUS and all involved in running it a great big THANK YOU for ALWAYS making us feel so welcome xxxxx

Room Tip: The BBQ night is brilliant and the steaks are so big. We haven't had a bad meal at the hotel and...

We paid our first visit to the Venus for one week in September this year. After reading some excellent reviews we had very high hopes and expectations. These were surpassed on every level. From landing at the airport we were checked in with a warm welcome,unpacked and sat round the pool,via the bar,within an hour. We had previously e mailed the hotel and asked for a hgher floor room and were very pleased they managed to allocate us one. Our room was of a higher standard than we were used to in Greece and the beds were comfier than our own.Food was of an excellent standard at breakfast.Lunches at the pool bar were of great quality and value for money. The poolside restaurant in the evening was so good we never made it to the main strip most nights,especially after a couple of pint sized cocktails.
As a non swimmer the shallow end of the pool was ideal for me to cool down,have a chat with other guests and practice my paddling. Th hotel is ideally situated between the beach and the main road.We have never visited the same hotel twice before but have already booked for two weeks next year and convinced our friends to come with us. Can't wait

Third year in a row we have been here. We are lucky enough to be able to visit new places every year as well. This has become our retreat in September. Nick and all the staff treat everyone so well that you cannot help but relax and enjoy a very nice friendly hotel with a lovely swiming pool. The beds this year where extremely comfortable, we found out at the end pf our stay that they install all new memory foam mattresses. We find Kalamaki nice and peaceful with just enough happening in the bars and restaurants to have a laugh with people and very good meals. We like going for long walks during the day along the beach and to the likes of Zakinthos Town. Our favourite bar is the Venus with Spiro and Andreas keeping the atmosphere fun and friendly for all. As said on other reviews book direct with Nick and the airline, save money and get all the advantages of discount club card, fridge and air conditioning at the hotel.
