We've just arrived home from our holiday in Kalamaki and Yiannis, Dennis and Spiros at the Scorpio pool and bar made our holiday. We were staying at a hotel just up the road but preferred to have breakfast and swim in the pool here because of the welcoming, friendly atmosphere. The pool is also great for swimming (this may seem like a daft comment but many swimming pools on holiday are too shallow or cater more for children so are not "shaped" for swimming - if you like a proper swim and not just a dip, the Scorpio has a great pool). There were lots of return visitors but it wasn't at all "clicky" - it was our first time in Kalamaki but we felt like we'd known everyone for years. All three brothers work really hard - serving good quality breakfasts and bar food as well as soft drinks and alcohol. They also love to banter. We would love to go back to see Yiannis, Dennis and Spiros again and are missing them already. Thank you for your hospitality and humour (and the shots!) "Yamas" Jo & Stu

YAMMAS!!!!!!! This bar is ace and is well worth a visit!!!!! Yiannis, Yanisi, Spiro, Papa you are all crazy. I love this bar as it is the best place to chill with an ice cool drink ans to watch the world go by. It is also a great place to learn so Greek here!!! Yiannis and tolis love the Shots here followed by a nice kool class of Lowenbrau, and they allways leave here as it is rude not to as the prices are very good. See you all next year and it is very hard to say goodbye to you all but we will be there next year to learn more Greek!!!!

2nd time to Zante first time to Kalamaki, and let me tell you it was fab, think the alcahol is too cheap though as some of these negative comments below seem to be written by people who obviously had there eyes closed for a fortnight, for gods sake its greece,,,, its clean, laid back, chilled, the people are friendly will do anything for you, family orientated, there not forceful with money, dont know how many times i got told, ahh pay me later pay me later, which i did just to add, I stayed next door to the dionysys and used the scorpion bar facilitys everyday, you are and will be looked after believe you me, everything makes this the ideal place, the people who stay there (ie: the crew), the brothers, pappy, the domestic assistants, and even the reps for once, so I heard anyway, best vacation ever, chilled, layed back good laugh, no trouble no *ob heads, and for 7euros you can go into laganas for a lively knees up rahhhhh, but be careful what you drink!!!!!

This is by far one of the best bars in kalamaki. The prices are excellent and the service is great. Yiannis, Spiro, Yannisi and Papa are all great! The snack bar food is also excellent and the price is ace! We have been comming to have a drink at this friendly bar for over nine years and it has allways been a great bar! You can sit back and watch the world go by while enjoying a large cold glass of mythos (what Yiannis mac and Tolis do) If you late at the bar you can see the moon rise above Skopos, which is a very nice thing to see. But the Lowenbrou is strong and you can end up or you can get jet laged as yiannis would say!) if you get on realy well with the boys there they will teach you greek! I wish that i was there now
SORRY THATS GREEK LESSONS,IT MUST BE THE TEARS IN MY EYES,AS WE ONLY RETURNED LAST NIGHT.
GREAT TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN AT THE SCORPIAN BAR,THANKS TO YIANNIS AND DENNY FOR THE GEEK LESSONS TOO,GREAT FRIENDLY STAFF AND ICE COLD BEERS, YAMMAS TO ALL !!!!!!
