Great hotel right on the beach, we paid a little extra when booking and stayed in room 331 which was right over the beach bar overlooking the sea, couldn't have been more closer to the beach.
People moan about 6 euro for a lounger on the sand, don't pay it never had any trouble getting one on the grass next to the sand and we never came down before 9am.
Clean towels daily. good choice of food, the drinks are ok, clearly not very strong but enough for a nice evening, there with family do its not about getting legless!!

Overall a great holiday and a good price at just over £800 each for 2 weeks in a superior room for all inclusive on a lovely island.

Staff were all great and helpful, thanks for a lively time.

Me and my NEW husband decided to get married abroad and what a perfect place we picked!!! The zante Maris Hotel is fantastic, the food is great, the staff are so friendly and overall its a great place to stay!! We got married at The Balcony Hotel on 21st September 2013 and what can we say it was out of this world the views were beautiful!! The Zante Maris Hotel staff supplied us and 30 of our family champagne the night before and after our wedding!! We couldn't of asked for a better place to start married life together!! I would come back here again :-)

A great time (again) staying at this very popular hotel. All staff were brilliant and could not do enough for us!! Rooms always clean, towels replenished every day- Food from the buffet restaurant always plentiful and varied. All in all a great time had by all.

Room Tip: All are good. However, a partial sea-view, or, sea-view is worth the extra charge.

Spent the last week at the Zante Maris in Tsilivi and had a really great time. We travelled as a family as it was my dads 50th birthday and will definitely be returning to the hotel. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect; it’s right on the beach and close to the town which is full of shops, bars and restaurants – you’re spoilt for choice.
We went all inclusive, the drinks were the usual local spirits, beers and wines and the food was buffet style. Although the food was nice, we did feel that the choice was quite limited and might have got a bit boring if we were there for over a week, also the chicken was not done nearly enough for my liking! The best night was the Mexican themed night in the beach bar, I would definitely recommend everyone to book into this as the food was fantastic and we had a really enjoyable evening.
The staff at this hotel are incredible; they really made a fuss over my dad for his 50th birthday; they decorated a table with balloons and all came out to sing to him with a bottle of champagne. The entertainment was good with a few quizzes, bingo, singing and dancing; they get everyone involved with the activities.
The hotel itself is clean and the maids do a wonderful job; however every time we used the shower in our room the water came out of the drain in the floor and flooded the bathroom, not sure if this is because of Greece’s poor drainage system but it wasn’t too much of a problem.
The best thing about the hotel is that people weren’t getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve sun beds so we didn’t have to worry about not being able to get one. We did pay for some sun beds on the beach which were 6 euros for 2, not a bad price, but I was expecting them to be free for guests of the hotel. The sea was lovely; we went in every day as it was warm compared to the hotel pool!
If you are planning on going on any trips I would definitely recommend the Levante speedboat excursions, we went to the afternoon trip to see the turtles and although it is probably the most expensive trip (40-45 euros) it is well worth it. It was the highlight of our week and Captain Spiros is a good laugh, he is really enthusiastic and promises that you will see at least one turtle on his trip and he did not disappoint! We saw 3 turtles and it was truly an amazing experience!
One thing that let us down about the hotel was that after the 15th of September it states that air con is not included, but a couple of days in to our holiday we decided to pay for it as it was too hot and it turned out it was included in our holiday price so we don’t know why they didn’t tell us this when we checked in.
Also if you are an animal lover like me, prepare yourself for the large amount of painfully thin dogs and cats around the area. It really is heartbreaking and I spent most of my holiday sneaking them food! However it was nice to hear that some of the guests were arranging to take some back to the UK.
Overall we had a fantastic and memorable week for my dads 50th and wouldn’t hesitate in returning here in the future.

We stayed at the Zante Maris for 2 weeks all inclusive for our honeymoon and were very very pleased with everything. The drinks were self service and the food was buffet style but it was the staff that really made this place special, they were all helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. The hotel is right on the beach which is perfect, and unlike other hotels nearby the zante maris beach is larger and very clean.

Stayed here in July and didn't know what to expect as had read mixed reviews, but I must say it was really nice. Very clean, lovely food and good choice of cocktails to my delight. Entertainment at next was good, they had a few good singers on and the drinks flowed. The hotel manager really is hands on and made everyone feel really welcome.
