“Beautiful hotel – lovely people”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

We visited this place in August. Went with our children aged 12 & 10. Very impressed with the private atmosphere. We loved the food as well!! The local chef, is a star!! My children loved the pancakes and fresh fish soup. If you want to dine away, ask concierge. Theysuggested a lovely place in the town. (forgot the name)

We stayed in villa 5 which is built on two floors. Lots of space which makes it very helpful when you travel with a big family. The weather was beautiful, although 1 day it was windy. Locals told me the best time to travel to Zakynthos island is June and September. We took one excursion with a small private yacht and visited the southern part of the island – it was fab!

On our second day, the wireless internet was not operating at some moments. I have seen another review on this site mentioning this and I believe that the hotel should sort this. A very helpful lady on the reception responded quickly. The staff were friendly and nothing seemed to be trouble for them to sort.

The beach and water were lovely except 1 day which was windy. I loved the fact that I didn’t have to search for a sunbed. Everything was ready waiting for us.

Thank you Porto Zante for a wonderful stay! I would recommend this place if you are looking for something extra special.

Wonderful villas amphitheatrically built above a beautiful sandy beach. This is a very private hotel. The service and food are excellent. Stayed here with my family and would highly recommend it.

A friend of mine from Milan suggested this place for its privacy ( just 6 villas), delicious Greek cuisine and beautiful private beach. He was very true!

As soon as we landed at Zakynthos airport we got into a luxurious Mercendes Viano and were driven to the property. There are no signs that lead to this place as they want to protect the privacy pf their guests. We felt like royalty!

We stayed on a stanning beachfront villa which enjoyed beautiful views and lush gardens. The service was excellent and the food suprisingly the best we had in resorts all over Europe. Don't miss the fillet beef souvlaki ( on the charcoal) and the fish soup!

If you want to avoid big and crowded resorts, look no further.

Well, we were really looking forward for this stay and it was a big disappointment.
The Resort is not "on the beach", it is on the rocks 70 to 100 steep stairs to the beach. There are actually 5 villas - but 4 of them have connecting doors so they are not individual but semi-detached. Impossible to see any of this on the site - which is very misleading.
The number of villas leads to the fact that you won't have any of the usual 5 star resort amenities. The restaurant (which is also the bar) means two or three tables on the terrace - the second part of the same terrace is used as a spa - a massage bed and a jacuzzi. The barmaid is also a spa therapist. Your villa's "butler" - in fact, everybody's butler - is a very nice girl working apparently non-stop, she was even taking all our phone orders for villa dining, from breakfast to diner.
The air-conditioning was out of work in one of our bedrooms and it took two days to fix it. The bed was creaking at our every move. The heated pool and jacuzzi also waited two days and numerous reminders to be finally heated. The manager's response to our remark that for these prices one shouln't have such kind of problems was to mention for at least the 3rd time that Konstantin Ernst, the head of Russian Channel One..., was a repeater guest of this villa. Well, primo, I'm not Konstantin Ernst and was really not impressed at all - maybe we have different ideas about quality and service after all; secundo, if I were this Konstantin Ernst I'm not sure I'd appreciate being used as a repetitive publicity for this hotel. Privacy policy... indeed?
To cut the long story short, the only positives of the place were utter calm and peace, beautiful sea and very impressive views. The negatives are unfortunately so numerous that it's tiresome to continue their list -let's just say that the value for money is incredibly low. The hotel just doesn't live up to the announced standards.
We'll not return - not with this customer service.

This is a lovely place to stay away of mega resorts but at the same time enjoy hotel style perks. Very private and with delicious Greek food. Our villa also had a stone terrace on the edge of the sea with immediate access to their sandy beach. Absolutely loved it! On the downside, the hotel’s free wireless internet was not available in certain parts of the beach and it took them half day to fix this. In general the service & staff were great. Zakynthos island is beautiful with lots of historical monuments and white sand beaches.

Last summer we spent 2 relaxing weeks in a beach villa at Porto Zante. I recommend the resort for its privacy which was very important to us. The kids absolutely loved the place. They liked the beach, the sun, and the amazing food. I’ve never seen them eat so much fish in my life!! The fact that the beach was secluded and the kids could not run off gave us the time to enjoy ourselves. We all hope to come back maybe next summer to recharge our batteries.
