Cavo Doro Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Laura O           

When we arrived knackered from a flying through the night it was horrible to arrive to a really dirty room,(bedding stained , dirty floors, shower plug full of peoples hair!) which was tiny and very very basic, how you are even expected to make snacks in the room is difficult to imagine!-  poor in regards to what we were expecting.(I have stayed in Greece twice before by the way and am aware of standards there!) We took photos for evidence and am complaining to tour company now back in UK, (the room was re-cleaned straight away after we complianed to be fair to the hotel.) However our toilet seat was broken, the bed broke when i sat on it (I am only 8 stone by way), kitchen facilities were tiny .Oh and the shower soaked the whole bathroom, toilet rolls and towels included and floor became VERY slippy. Everything about the Hotel is very basic, the room, the pool. However location is good, restaurants and bars in kalamaki are good, location is close to Laganas if you want a bit of a party! oh Milos restaurant is excellent, ate there four times and food was brill every time. Parthenon was good too.Mermaids was poor even though had read good reports on here. Went once and the food was cold decided to give it a second try but was cold again.

We read lots of good reports about mermaids on here before travelling so we visited the restaurant. Atmosphere was good and was busy and food is presented well, the starters were lovely (and hot) however first time we visited the main meal was cold. We decided to give it a second chance after reading all the reports on her however it was cold agian. Very poor. Oh and it took ages to arrive by the way!!

Kalamaki Beach - (Beaches in Zante)

beach is nice here, not too busy not too quiet. True about the cig butts , but not too bad.We saw one nudist at the far end!! Few fish down that end too for snorkelling.The people who look after the turtles sites will tell you off if you sun bathe too close to the nesting sites.Water is very clear and warm (we just got back) Be careful if you sun bathe close to the waters edge there is a slight tide and the water will come over you . (be careful if you fall asleep in the sun!)

Laganas Beach - (Beaches in Zante)
