Venus Hotel & Suites

Reviewed November 2, 2010

We travelled to Zante for our wedding and arranged our reception at the hotel. I'll keep the review brief but will say that we cannot recommend the Venus, Nick and all the staff highly enough. The hotel is under rated as its current status and everyone there is so friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us or our guests. The bar food is gorgeous and the service faultless.
Our wedding was perfect and better than we even hoped it would be.
Zante itself is a beautiful place and the Venus is THE place to stay!

Second time at the Venus in August this year. We absolutely love this hotel, nothing is too much trouble. Every single member of staff are so friendly and welcoming. We had our three teenagers, 15,18,19 and a 12 year old with us this time and they also loved the hotel. They want to know when we can go back!
Nick is a great manager and can offer advice on anything you may need. Spiro, the bar manager, does a fantastic job. We loved having a pre dinner drink at the bar, fabulous cocktails!!
My sister and her family are visiting the Venus next summer, i am so jealous, as don't think we can return until the following year!
We highly recommend this fantastic hotel
Thanks to Nick and his lovely staff and family for making us so welcome.

I just happened to find this amazing hotel whilst searching for a weeks holiday for myself and my husband, everything seemed so expensive until i read some reviews on trip advicer about the venus hotel. I followed their advise and emailed the hotel directly to get a quote to which i was extremely impressed with the price. Please book through the hotel and get seperate flights as the hotel offers lots of extra's the package companies can not provide without there being an extra charge. The staff are wonderful they can not help you enough. The best resturant that we ate in was called escape, if you turn left when leaving the hotel its a 1 minute walk away, the mousaka is to die for. the best way to see the island is to hire a quad bike if you walk past the escape resturant there's a little hire shop 15 euro's for a small one, or try the monster at 30 euro's for 24hrs, we had an amazing day out on that. October is a nice time to go if you're looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday, but take something waterproof as we had 2 days of constant rain, everyone we spoke to said its never been that bad in october before. It didn't matter the other 5 days were roasting. We will hopefully be going back next year, and staying at the venus hotel again.

Returned from Venus 15th October we had a wonderfull relaxing chilled out holiday.The staff are amongst the best we have ever had the pleasure of being served by anywhere on the continent,there is nothing too much trouble for them to do for you from the Manager Nick down to the cleaners,bar staff,breakfast and snack bar personel all looked after you with a smile and genuine enjoyment just to see you have a great holiday.We ate out in Kalamaki most nights and there were some very good restaurants we thought that Georgia's was the best for genuine Greek food we also enjoyed Artemis(Manuel Is the star),Escape,Heaven's Kitchen,Mermaids all good value and much cheaper than we expected.The snacks in Venus were the best value the only very small fault is the Evening Menu is rather limited if you are there for 14 days. but of course you could order anything off snack menu which were cooked to perfection.We booked direct with Nick fullboard but the great thing about the system Venus operate if you eat out your food allowance is not lost it all comes off your snack and bar bill at the end of your holiday so unlike other hotels you don't lose anything if you go out for the day.The Venus is absolutely spotless with very good rooms,bahtroom and the best towels we have had in Greece in about 30 holidays. We enjoyed the holiday so much we booked whilst we were there for next May and then received 10% discount as Venus club members and extra 2% for early booking so cannot wait to go back and enjoy Great Greek hospitality again.
Thanks Nick to You and ALL of your Staff for unforgettable holiday

This was our 1st visit to the Venus. We read the reviews and decided this was the hotel for us. Well we were not disappointed. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was a pleasure. Midday snacks were fantastic and thanks for all the free pool. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Great having the air con & safe included in the price. Well hope we can get it for next Sep at great rates you have. We are going over with more of our extended family. So hope to see you all again. €13 for taxi to airport as well.

One of the hidden gems of Zante, quite frankly we could not have had a beter time. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, the food ,the pool, the entertainment - nothing you could fault. If you wanted to leave the pool it was a short walk to the beach, or just a short walk to the shops and restaurants the other way. We didn,t even get to visit Zante town as we never left Kalamaki, one good reason to go back next year.

The room is very clean, comfortable, and quiet, the staff are very friendly and do all they can to help. The pool is clean but not too large its very pleasant, there is a seperate small childrens pool, around the main are plenty of sun beds, so being up at sunrise is not needed. The snack bar provides a great selection of meals and drinks at reasonable prices during the day, the hotel does meals outside at night.
There are restautants and bars on the main street one we used was Zaganoes near the hotel, but there is a good selection of others to try.
The beach is not for from the hotel but there are not many sun beds due to the turtle nests in the sand, the volunteer beach wardens will ask you to move if you set up near the nests. The whole of this part of the beach is a conservation area so there are no beachside hotels or bars and aircraft landings are restricted to daylight hours.
The hotel and resort are ideal for a very relaxing holiday.
