the airport is a joke. The new arrivals terminal isn't too bad for a small provincial airport, suitcases arrived and we were out within 30 minutes.
The Olde Vineyard was probably one of the worst restaurants my party have ever been too. One of my party was a trained chef. The starters were fine, the main meals however was very over seasoned with salt. I had the local fish, my partner had the chicken and my two friends had something else, can't remember what. Even the greek roast potatoes were over seasoned with salt. The waiter came over who we found out was the proprietors husband and we complained to him, he went off around the restaurant and came back saying that no one else had complained and why wern't we eating it. His wife came over and she said that his father was the chef and he was greek, and has been told before about over seasoning the food. We recieved the cost of two of the main courses back, but with the very poor and unprofessional attitude of the husband, I was in two minds not to pay for anything. I would definatelty not recommed this restaurant
Can't give this hotel enough superlatives. From the first day welcome and introduction by Nick at the front desk, to the goodbye on the last day by Jenny, the hotel was full on, giving customer satisfaction. The hotel has been recently refurbished and the cleaners do an excellent job of keeping it clean. Iilias and Nick at the bar kept us occupied with their supply of cocktails, and Melly was always helping with a smile.
ate at Giorgios twice. The wine was good, the food was plentiful and excellent (swordfish was superb). the staff are very friendly, and welcomed us as if they had known us all their lives.
Ate here the first night of our holiday, the grill was good and the company was as usual excellent. The service was efficient.
Ate here on the second night of our holiday. The place was packed which is always a good sign as to the quality of the food. The manager got out his balalika and was accompanied by an accordian player, gave some nice entertainment. All in all a good dining experience and would go back
Had breakfast here once, was extremely good service. They have a misting system to keep customers cool, one of the heads came off and soaked everything in its path, but never mind, thats life. Food was excellent, as was the fruit juice.
the views are spectacular, the service was good, my meatball main course was cold in the middle.
i do enjoy jet skiing but I don't like to buy the ski on holiday, 35 euros for 10 minutes, can get a cheaper flight for a return trip to zante
we had two weeks in Akanas, sampling all of the restaurants, we left Cosy Corner until we had tried all of the greek restaurants. I had fish and chips with mushy peas one night, and their Pork leek and cider pie another night. The full english breakfasts won the Zante best breakfast award, not something I give out lightly. All of the food is preared and sourced locally. Although I love cats, I don't think a restaurant is the best place to have them hanging around
Ate here several times over our two week stay. Food is excellent, the starter for two was massive, enough to cure the biggest appetites. Chicken apollo is highly recommeded
so whats changed about the new departure terminal?
our second visit to zante, our first to alykanas. I know the euro is strong against the pound at the moment, but does that support the great tourist rip off?
Thanks to all of the staff at the village, in particular Gloria and Dennis the barman. A very children focused hotel set in idyllic surroundings. And for us oldies we could escape the noise of the reps by going to the circular pool. The cost of the on site snack bar was extortionate. 5 euros for a beer and 3-5 euros for a toastie, you can get around that by buying beer in the supermarket and taking it to the pool area at 1.40 euros for a can of stella, met and made friends with some good people. would I go back and stay? no, stayed at the contessina in tsivili last year, it was a lot quieter. Looks like we've reached the age of peaceful holidays
Just returned to the uk after two weeks at the Contessina.Both B and I had a wonderful time, Most of the rooms have been reconditioned, and are always clean from the army of staff, well done. Both Nicos and Illias remembered us from two years ago and made us most welcome. The receptionists, Diana and Rosa were always helpful and friendly. My only critiscism were the extra's, fridge was 4 euros a day, aircon was 7 euros a day and the safe was 20 euros a week, which added a considerable sum to the cost of the holiday. I also understand there will be a large price hike next year which will make the hotel less attractive for those on a budget.. the breakfast was average, not always hot and quality was not that good. You can get a good breakfast next door for 5 euros
went to the old village last week and had spetzofai, a sausage casserole. It was swimming in a sea of oil and tasted disgusting
the hotel is about a ten min walk to the beach, the hotel is fantastic, the only not so good comment is the quality of the breakfast, but there is a bar next door that does a fantastic breakfast
