Krinas Hotel - (Accommodation in Argassi)

Richard S           

Just returned from Zante 22/08/2005 enjoyed my stay at the krinas the two young girls that look after you couldnt do enough to help and i would advise to ask them about where to go and visit. also appartments may be basic but kept very clean (the cleaning staff just dont seem to stop working) had a problem with a leaking toilet which was repaird within half an hour.

Must add that i think the appartments at the back of the complex seem the quieter we had one of these and found everything nice and quiet on a night but had a late checkout room near the front and this was a different matter with the pool bar not closing till 3am.
 
Air con available at 35 euro 1 week and 50 for 2 weeks

We liked it, the sea was amazing crystal clear and you can go out for ages and its only up to your waste the sand isnt as bad as some say although you get good and bad parts good to just sit and relax also poolbars run along the beech so you can always have a drink and a bite to eat while the kids have a splash in the pool

Zante Town - (Places to Visit in Zante)

Richard S           

took taxi from Argassi 9 euro not a lot to shout about really if your going to do a bit of shopping dont bother we did and bought two cups of coffee total waste of time

Zakynthos Airport - (Places to Visit in Zante)

Richard S           

take your own food and water also take plenty for the kids to do because if your delayed its a nightmare. The tour opperators fill up coaches from a particular resort so although our check in wasn't til 5.50am we where picked up at 3.45 am (a disgrace). arriving not bad at all but departure not good would not want to be queing outside (or inside) when the heat starts to rise. would advise taxi to the airport for check in that way cuts down the waiting time also you dont have to que outside if you make your own way there.

not because of the food i might add the zante beef was very tasty but more due to the position of our table, for one you could see right into the toilet which isnt the sort of thing you want especially when they dont shut the door. Also i'm sure most people that went recently will have noticed the puppy at the front, well this puppy cute as it is peed al over the floor, then a waitress cleaned it up with tissue and just carried on serving customers without washing her hands, i'm sorry but that is not good enough for me and when we complained to the guy outside he could not see what was wrong with this.

just our experiance but enough to put us of for good.
