A great little Hotel, modern and very bright and clean.It had a good vibe and everyone seemed relaxed and friendly. Great position for either town or walking along beach( very nice at night). Food was always well presented and if you are all inclusive, Billi does a good job keeping your glass full. No real niggles., and recommended.

Stayed at Zante Maris for 11 nights all inclusive with husband, 3 children aged 22, 20 and 11. Had a fantastic stay hotel very good only slight niggles beds very hard and bathrooms could do with updating but overall hotel in fantastic. Location ideal right on the beach but only a short walk into Tsilivi resort if you fancy a change of scenery, always clean and staff always welcoming and helpful, the food very good too. The view from the beech bar with sunsets over Kefalonia are unfortetable. Would definately go back at some point and recommend to friends. New water park in Tsilivi small but very good and reasonably priced.

Myself & my Girlfriend stayed at this Hotel for 2 weeks all inclusive between 18th May & June 1st 2010. We had the most amazing time here, and we both agreed it was one of the best Hotels we have stayed in. When you tell people around the town where you are staying they all said we were in 1 of the best! The staff were so friendly and worked very hard to ensure we had a good holiday. We had buffet style food all day, and you had different types of meat, fish, pasta rice dishes available as well as the traditional english type foods, so there was always something for everyone. The location is pefect, right on the beach, and not to far from the main town. Room was clean and spacious. We spoke to alot of people who come back here year after year, as they feel they have got all they need there in an ideal location, and we couldn't agree more with them. But i would highly recommend this hotel to anybody. We made so many friends including the staff, (the bar staff Jack & Theo we now keep in touch with via Facebook!) We hiope this review was helpful.

This is listed as a 4* hotel. And the hotel is nice and location good being a bit away from Tsilivi town centre with pubs etc. Room was average but ok.

Pros:

1. Good location, right next to the beach
2. We only had breakfast included, and breakfast was good
3. Hotel entertainment was quite good. Bars were nice and pools and pool areas were good.
4. Staff were generally friendly, and helpful.
5. Hotel and room was clean and tidy.
6. The hotel was fairly quiet, something we appreciate when we travel.

Cons:

1. We didn't get our requested sea view room. But maybe we should have taken this up with our travel agent. Stress this with your travel agent, or you will most likely not get it
2. The hotel had both outdoor and indoor pool areas and a little gym area which was ok for some light holiday traning. Table tennis facilities etc.
3. Room was ok, I suppose Greek 4*, however, more would likely categorise it as 3*, at least according to Scandinavian standards. Nevertheless, we were provided with comfy slippers and robes that sometime are not offereded, even at 5* hotels as we experienced in Crete at Porto Palazzo 5* hotel (see our review).
4. We had a balcony facing little side road, ok to dry towels and wet clothes but not very romatic.
5. Some reception staff not very friendly or service minded at all. We asked to have some laundry done and were quoted 15 Euros, but were presented with a bill of some 27 Euros when they brought it to us. A tiny thing, yet annoying. I protested and reception staff were quite insulted that I insisted to pay the initially agreed amount. Anyway, we don't let small things like this ruin our holiday, and we had a nice 2 weeks in Zante.
6. Although the beach is nice, we did not enjoy the rocks getting into and out of the water, our feet hurt ... ouch!
Overall evaluation:
Good: 4* hotel, nice pools and pool areas, good location, breakfast good, and most staff members were really friendly. If you have enough time, we strongly recommend Kefalonia trip, and trip to mainland to see the ancient olympic stadium. We thoroughly enjoyed that trip. Trip to ship wreck was so so but ok. Also turtle/caves cruises are available. We went with capt. Spiros and Levante trips and can recommend that.

Stayed at the Zante Maris from 16th-23rd May. It was absolutely fantastic. Staff are so helpful and friendly. We had select room which overlooked the pool and had a great side sea view too. Would definately reccommend upgrading if you can as the views are worth it.
There is a new waterpark in Tsilivi itself which had only been open a week. F/Choice dont currently offer it as an excursion yet but you call walk there in 25mins from the hotel all the way along the beach. It is only 10eur per person to get in and then you can redeem that amount against food and drink, 2 of us went so we had 20eur to spend on food which we struggled to do! We had 2 coffees, 2 cold drinks and 2 burger and chips and still had money left over to spend later in the day. It has lazy river, a bowl slide, 3 waterslides and another one which was closed when we went but will be opening soon.
Drinks aren't too bad in the hotel, the locals Mythos/Amstel are about 2.50 for a big bottle, Corona, Becks etc is around 4.00.
Popeyes was fantastic for lunch, homemade burger with chips just 4.50!
Also by the watersports just bit further along the beach there was a beach bar called boomerang, also very good food and great portions for good price.
We upgraded to half board when we were there for 12eur per person per nyt, you get 7nts but only pay for 5.5. Can upgrade to all inclusive which is good if you plan to stay within the hotel for 22eur per person per day.
Lots of resruarants around hotel, but food inside was fantastic. Always had chips for fussy eaters, and usually did 2 greek. 2 pasta and 2 vegetarian dishes with veg etc.
Any questions, feel free to email me and i will try and help.
Do not hesitate booking this hotel - its great!

My wife and I were at the Zante Maris with First Choice from 9th-16th May 2010. The hotel is great with a good location, excellent rooms, excellent food and wonderful staff, We had a room overlooking the pool-I would have had a concern if we had been allocated a room overlooking the road but fortunately we didn't. It's great!!
We had a car for 2 days and it was only 50euro from a place in the village-Blue Bay I think!
Weather was good as well
