“Very very high standard”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Visited the Balcony for our friends wedding 10th July were greeted at the door on arrival by the hosts.
Small boutique style hotel with 5 star service very discreet through out the wedding but always on hand if you needed anything.
Had the pleasure is seeing the rooms as we booked the Bride n Groom in for the night must admit very clean n classy with views from the room out of this world.
Have eaten here before food outstanding and the food at the wedding was fantastic too truly Greek cooking .
I would not hesitate to recommend Balcony for a wedding or to stay there or just simply for a meal the views and service are second to none .
A must visit if in Zante

Room Tip: Must book a sea view room perfect

We spent one week in Hotel Balcony in June 2013.
As soon as we arrived in the Hotel we were astonished by the beauty of this Hotel and by the amazing view.
The room is nice and in the aspects of design, cleanliness and view of the sea equal or above any 4-5 star Hotel on the Island!
Having breakfast on the huge sea-view balcony every morning was breath-taking!
The breakfast was more or less the same every day, but you could choose from a big variety of traditional house made cakes, salad and sandwitches!
Our room was cleaned every day, so that we could always feel it is our first day!
The staff is very very friendly! Special thanks to Eleni and Dimitris, who helped us a lot to get to know the beauties of the island!
The Hotel is 5 mins from Zakynthos town with the car.
We whole-heartedly recommend this Hotel - no one will regret it!

Me and my wife got married here on the 24th of May 2013 and I can not praise this hotel enough. We went through first choice and our wedding co ordinator, Julie, was brilliant. One thing she told us was not to visit the balcony before the wedding day as it would spoil the surprise of the views. We are so glad that we took that advice as the whole place, and the views are breathtaking. We were lucky to have a very clear, sunny day but, even with amazing photographs, they still do not do the place justice. We had over 40 guests and they were all amazed by the location. We used the wedding photographer through First Choice too, Richard, he worked so hard that day and we are so pleased with his work. He stuck around for a couple of hours after the main photos just to get the sunset shots. The staff at the hotel were really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We had a buffet style meal and the food was fantastic. If you have the chocolate wedding cake through the hotel you will not be disappointed, it was incredible. If you are getting married at The Balcony, you will not be disappointed, it really was one of the best days of our lives. We are looking at coming back to Zante next year and we will definitely be visiting this hotel for a meal at least.

Had a meal here one evening. Great views and relaxed atmosphere. I am a vegetarian and found very limlted choice in vegetarian meals on offer here. A bit pricey as well. Probably wont be returning unless owners improve their menu.

The hotel has got really a great view over the Tsilivi beach and town, the rooms are clean, quite modern, bathrooms are roomy and refurbished, (and you get a nice smelling shower gel ;-). Breakfast full and there is plenty of choice.

Mrs. Mamfreda is a sweet lady that speaks very good english and tries to do her best for the comfort of the guests. The only disappointment was non-functinal wi-fi, and phone line, but being the first guests (stayed there 3rd-5th May), I can understand it. The stairs leading to the beach should be considered dangerous for kids and old folks, full of dead olive branches and leaves (but maybe in the summer hotel staff cleans it every day?). Beach right down at the hotel full of seaweed, but to the main beach it is just a few steps away (plus it is probably the same thing as with the staircase). 4 points for sure, definitely reccomending this beautiful hotel!

Room Tip: The higher floor, the better the view
