“Lives up to its reputation!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

We've just returned from a week at the Zante Star and had a lovely time.

On arrival we were greeted by the owners and our cases carried up to the room for us.

The room was lovely, spacious and modern and plenty big enough for a couple. Modern shower room, with well equipped kitchen/living room with a separate bedroom with double doors and a balcony overlooking the Olive groves. It really is in a lovely setting with fantastic views of the trees and the town. It's also only 15 minutes from the airport.

I was impressed by the attention to detail. There was washing up liquid and a sponge ready and salt and pepper, which was a nice touch as you don't want to be buying these but they're very useful.

The room was immaculately clean, the bed was made everyday and the towels changed every other day. In fact the whole hotel was spotlessly clean and very well presented.

The best part of the room was the shower. It was worth coming on holiday just for this!

We decided to eat at the hotel on the first night. There was plenty of food to choose from and it was all delicious. All the food and drink was very reasonably priced. You could have eaten there every day if you didn't want to go out.

I talked to other guests at the bar. Most of them had been at least once before or had return stays booked for later in the year.

The pool was lovely, private as no other properties overlooked it. There were plenty of sun beds.

The hotel is quite rural down a country lane so it's very quiet. The only noise that you hear are the cockerels and the dogs barking at night time, and the occasional Greek night/karaoke from other hotels which always stopped by midnight.

There is a small supermarket nearby, a five minute walk and the beach is a little further about 10 minutes walk. The town centre is about 15 minutes walk and there is a good selection of bars, cafés, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. Athena was the best restaurant we ate at with about 200 main courses.

I would recommend the Zante Star to anyone as everyone who works there clearly take great pride in it and what they do. Everyone was uber friendly and very helpful, even taking my postcards to the postoffice in Zante town so they would get to England quicker. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and that made for a racing holiday knowing that you're going to get good service and be well looked after.

The only thing I would say to anyone going here is there are lots of steps and no lifts or slopes so if you have mobility issues it's not for you. Otherwise go and have a fabulous holiday. It's much better than the three stars it has and much nicer than any five star hotel I've stayed in abroad. I would definitely go back and take all the family next time.

Thank you Zante Star for helping us have a fantastic holiday.

It's gets better and better every time we come to the Zante Star. This year we took numerous friends and family (28 of us) and everyone said what a clean, relaxing, hospitable and value for money hotel the Zante Star is. The girls who run the hotel are just lovely, nothing is too much trouble and you really get a personal service. The restaurants in the area are excellent and I would recommend Sweet Revenge, King Prawn and Benikos to name a few. However, we have eaten at numerous restaurants and have never had a bad meal. My only concern is that it will become harder and harder to bet booked at this hotel especially with all the Trip advisor awards it wins.

We first visited Zante Star last year for our honeymoon and realised straight away what a fantastic hotel this is.All the good reviews that had been written on trip adviser were spot on.We promised ourselves that we would return,and so we did.We have just come back from another great 2 weeks holiday and again have had a great time.Helen,Tula,Irene and Irena are so friendly and helpful and really look after you,infact a special thank you must go to Irene and Irena for doing the impossible of finding me an English newspaper on 2 separate days as during our holiday there were no english papers on the island due to an apparent dispute/discussion about printing on Greece mainland .We found the hotel to be the perfect location,a lovely setting just out of town,with a leisurely stroll to the beach and town. The resturants in Tsilivi are off a very good standard and we have never had a bad meal.We have met some really nice people while there who we are sure we will meet again as so many people are return visitors,just to mention our personal night time mountain tour guide driver and the Eastenders landlord .We definitely have been Zante STAR STRUCK !

Our first trip to Tsilivi and we found a real gem here. The owners and staff are fantastic and we were so well looked after. The rooms are immaculate and have probably the best shower we have used in Greece! You feel your belongings are extremely safe and only hotel guests use the poolside facilities and the 24 hour reception is an excellent addition. Food and drink are good and at reasonable prices. The views from our room (214) overlooking the pool and the countryside in the distance is fabulous.
Only ten minutes to the lovely clean beach and about 15 minutes to town centre, so it is far enough away from the noisy karaoke bars (which I guess will be quite loud in high season).
We will definitely return here!
