Marelen Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Christopher D           

Well what can i say,just returned (25/9) it was an ideal location 200m from the beach & a short walk from the resort centre. It was clean comfortable & functionable rented a fridge for the week (well you have to keep those beers cool) cost 30e a tad expensive, didn't need air conditioning as the evenings were cool. Did not make use of the pool or the snack bar but did look nice (prefer the beach & trips) Had a few drinks at the bar & i must say the barman (didn't know his name) but very pleasant as were the rest of the team that ran the hotel keep up the god wk . Would i return? yes i would without a doubt well recomended

Kalamaki Beach - (Beaches on Zante)

Christopher D           

We used Kalamaki beach twice it was 200m from hotel (prefer to venture out & explore) it was clean except the fag butts sunbeds are expensive 7e for two had one taverna/cafe which served great English brekkies 4.5e (if you watch Eastenders one of the waiters looked just like Dennis Watts junior) all very polite like all the Greek people the water was warm & clean swam with some little silver fish No distraction from the incoming flights bit of a novelty really

September - (Best Time to Visit)

Christopher D           

We just returned 25/9 from a week the weather was superb totally cloudless skies all week with temperatures up to 30c during the day the evenings were a little cooler than in July/August but comfortable We were in Kalamaki which was very quiet mostly couples & a few families very relaxing great. Went to Laganas during one day which is like Blackpool on the Med didn't like it I should imagine that is very busy during the peak season
