Amboula Beach Apartments
Reviewed June 15, 2011

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at the Amboula Beach Apartments for 6 days & nights in June 2011. The location of the apartments is perfect as it is right beside a beautiful, clean, quiet beach, two wonderful family run (and great value) tavernas, a bus stop and a shop. It is located just outside of the resort of Tsilvi, approx a 30 minute walk, 10 mins on the bus or €7 in a taxi. The apartments are beautifully decorated and cleaned every few days. Sea views are available from the 2nd & 3rd floor and there is a lovely garden for relaxing or for children to play. They are wonderful value compared to some of the cramped & dark apartments offered in the nearby resorts and the manager Tenia is incredibly helpful and friendly. She gave us wonderful recommendations for food, walks, the best place to buy local goods and she was kind enough to collect us and drop us to the bus station in Zante. Her service is personal, friendly and open and we enjoyed many lovely chats with her about her life and her experiences. I would return to Amboula Beach in a heartbeat. It made our visit to the island.

We returned last week from a fabulous 10 day trip to Zakynthos, and I have to admit, that it is thanks to the Amboula Beach apartments that our holiday was so special.

I cannot say enough nice things about these apartments…everything was perfect from our gorgeous room to the amazing lady who owned the apartments- the lovely Tenia, who was so helpful and friendly to us during our stay.

The apartments are located a bit outside Tsilivi town centre, but we had rented a car so this was no problem for us. They are about a five minute drive or a €8 taxi ride from, Tsilivi town centre and are situated in beautifully maintained gardens and all the rooms have a gorgeous sea view. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk from the apartments and there are some really nice Tavernas beside them too. Onsite car parking is also available and there is a supermarket about a 2 minute walk away.

The apartment we had was excellent. We stayed in apartment number 5 on the top floor. Our apartment had one bedroom and an open plan living room/ kitchen with a table & chairs, a sofa and a very nice sofa-bed. Each apartment has two balconies and our balconies had GORGEOUS, breathtaking views of the sea, the Greek mainland and the neighbouring island of Kefalonia…(please see pictures attached).the views were soooo stunning that some evenings we were quite happy to just sit in with a bottle of wine admiring the view on the balcony!

The apartment was perfect for our needs. It had a good size kitchen, with a large fridge/freezer, and a bathroom with shower. Our bedroom was very spacious with loads of storage space, a flat screen TV and free air conditioning!! The kitchen is equipped with every utensil & piece of crockery that you would need, washing up liquid is even provided and the bathroom was well stocked with hand soap and toilet paper. Plenty of soft, clean towels and clean bed linen were also provided. Our apartment was serviced every 2 days and each time fresh towels and bed linen were provided.

Tenia, the lady who owned the apartments was fabulous. She made our holiday so special and was so helpful- she acted as our own personal travel guide during our stay, advising us daily on the best places to visit on the island and telling us about all the hidden gems, that tourists normally would never visit and places that we would have never found without her help. She provided all the personal touches that really make the difference - for example, when we first arrived we found a fruit plate laid out for us, some fruit juice and even a bottle of mineral water in our fridge. She even treated us to some of her mother's home baked cookies (yum!!)

There is a reception building in the gardens of the apartment block and Tenia was always so friendly and attentive each time we saw her, and she had some great restaurant recommendations for us, which brought us to some local restaurants that we never would have found otherwise.

I would highly recommend these apartments to everyone who is looking to visit Zakynthos on an independent basis, away from the regular tourist trail. While there is not a pool, no beach is too far, and we certainly did not miss having one. We will definitely stay here again and cannot thank Tenia enough- customer service is her expertise.

EFHARISTO TENIA FROM CHRIS & EMMA :)

I couldent find a review so was a little worried when I booked these apartments,how ever just for once I got a very nice surprise,even after a little haggle about the price.Transport to and from the the airport wa s included, and from then it all went just right.Very clean apartment, fresh flowers,welcome pack and believe me everything you need including seperate bedroom with aircon wardrobe dressing table,tv. Balcony for both bedroom and lounge overlooking sea.Full kitchen with everything. Extra bed if nec in lounge/diner section, very clean bathroom with shower cab.I stayed for one week and the towels and sheets where changed midweek.The sea is almost on the doorstep with a nice beach,,albeit down a short steep incline. The resort is very quiet two or three reastruants and a supermarket. Tsilvi with pubs and music bars is 6 euros away by taxi, if thats what you want.. I found a hire car useful during my stay. I also found the on site owners couldent be more helpful
