Marelen would be a brilliant place for small children. Apart from the kiddies pool,a small water park was built there a few years ago. From what I remember there are slides there etc and I'm sure it would appeal to the younger ones. For adults there is a normal sized pool as well as a jacuzzi.

Looking at booking a family holiday in late may. Looking for relaxing but not too quiet for children (2 and 4) Really like the marelen hotel. Anybody know if this is a good choice?

Lovee Kalamaki!!! Me and my mum went for a girly week in july 2009 :) it was realy hot wen i visited and it was heading into a heat wave of 50degree upwards!! Went on the turtle submarine which was fabby as the turtles come right up to the side of the boat and you get a great underwater view of the turtles. Turtle island was amazinggg! it was beautiful and had a nice wee breeze which was much needed!!! also went on a all day cruise round the island which i was not impressed with as it lasted 3 hours lojnger than what we were informed. also we were told everything was included except food but went we arrived at the blue caves it was a 6 Euro charge which we were not impressed with. places yto weat were amazing. woood Deffo Go bak agen !!!!!! xxxx

Hi Jo, 100% recommend garden village, truly amazing place.  But will depend if you want this year or next, could be booked up this year but just read of their review that someone got a late booking so you could be lucky.  If you want to go next year book early......its with Thomson next year.

ideal place for a relaxing break, the beach is lovely and quite warm, safe for the kids you can walk quitw far out and still be at your knees the turtles are lovely to watch, hire a pedalo, don't bother paying trip prices, you will see just as many popping their heads up for a breather. Theres plenty of places to eat, a handful of shops and a couple of bars.

I have just got back from a weeks stay in Kalamaki and I had a great time. I would say the resort is great for most people except from those who want to go clubbing all the time. It has a fantastic beach and you can walk to Laganas along the beach. The sea is very nice and clean. The resort has a wide choice of restuarants, bars and shops and also has a couple of clubs. I went to the fire club and found it ok. I would recommend visiting Tazies for snacks in the day time or after a night of drinking. It is great there and they do food for everyones taste. Cronulla Hotel snack bar is good for food as well and also evening drinks. They welcome everyone including families and open until 2:00am. They have Karaoke's on a regular basis, internet access, pool table and other games machines. The cocktails are also great.

Overall Kalamaki is a great all round resort and only 10 minutes from the airport. Yes there is a lot of planes flying over but that is only in the day time as there is no night flights allowed. After a day you get use to it and dont take any notice!

this is the place if your looking for a relaxing holiday , lovely shops resturants and the people are all so friendly , i would recommened it to anyone x

just wanted to say the contrary to all the negative publicity that zante has received in the press recently, Kalamaki is a wonderful place to visit if you are looking for a nice quiet family holiday, even though Lagana is only down the road the contrast is vast. So please dont be put off by what you read in the papers or hear on the news and give it a try xx

Kalamaki was lovely lots of restaurants, supermarkets and shops but still quiet and peaceful. Lovely long sandy beach. Would definitely recommend this resort if you're not into clubbing. We bought some cheap lilos and used them instead of paying for sun beds each day. We found September was a good month to visit as not too hot.


All in all I would definitely recommend Zante apparently one of the greenest Greek islands too. We had a lovely relaxing time and found majority of people very welcoming.

Katie E          10/10

Kalamaki to me is the best resort on Zakynthos, it has a lovely clean beach and there are plenty of choices of restaurants and bars.  Everyone is very friendly.  It is not too noisy or busy, a great place for a relaxing holiday.

Kalamaki is a fantastic place and I will be returning again in June.

Matt P          10/10

Kirsty M          10/10

Well...We have been comming to Kalamaki for 11 or 12 years now...Says it all really!!

Kalamaki is a wonderful Resort which is a must for families and couples. It provides a good selection of Tavernas and Bars, as well as the sea  with its crystal clear water!
Kalamaki is a resort where there is always something going on, but you can also relax and chill!
You will not be disapointed here!

I have just returned from kalamaki for the ninth time and me and my family love it there. The beaches are great, the weather is great and the people are great. I love going here every year. I highly recommend the resturant the Olive Tree.
