Dionysis and Tonia Studios - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

I love Zante!  These apartments were actually the most basic i've ever stayed in in the Kalamaki resort (this was my sixth time coming here) but I guess half the time most won't be in the apartments a lot through the day anyway.  Cleaners definately did a good job.  They are in a good location, with about a 15 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes to the other end of Kalamaki where Cave Bar and such like are (the 'original' Kalamaki!).  It's a good, clean pool, the sun's on it all day until around 7 o clock, and bar/food service is good in the Scorpion bar, friendly.  There was only myself who was really used to the 'Greek way' in our party of four who came here- those who are used to going to places other than Greece may be rather shocked and disgusted when they get here due to the really basic apartments (i.e. hand held showers, the toilet paper in the bin thing...), but it wouldn't take much getting used to!  I'd stay here again I think, but I know the other 3 probably won't be rushing back in a hurry...  You get aircraft noise, which is pretty obvious as the airport's only bout 3 miles away, and scooters racing about on the main road- these apartments are just set back off the main kalamaki-laganas road.  All in all- a great holiday in my opinion!

Hey Matt what date did you go to these apartments?  I guess i'm just hoping the two couples you were referring dint include us...!   Saying that though, the other couple we went with didn't really want to do anything but stay beside the lovely clean pool!  Which was annoying to say the least- it's definately worth going on the tours and stuff that's organised, I was dying to go to that Greek night that Olympic holidays organised to Keri I think it was- could anybody tell me what is like for next time's booking?!  Costas definately is king of the Greek nights so far.... 

Nah the shipwreck trip isn't a con.  You can see it either on a coach tour round the island or on a boat tour round the island- the only way to literally touch it is by going on the boat tour, in which case the boat parks up and you have to swim to it, if i remember rightly, the water's bloomin freezing!  And I think the beach which it is on is shingle.  In my opinion the coach tour was best, saying that though it was a fair few years ago that I went on it.  Each to their own I suppose!
