Amaryllis Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Julie T          9/10

nice spacious apartments,we had a 1 bed with 2 teenagers and it didnt feel cramped, nice balconies, we were in block B and most had a pool view,some noise was heard from the Laganas crowd arriving back at stupid o'clock but we slept with the windows open because didn't want to pay the price of the air con, pool bar good,open from 8.00 till 6.00 plays music all day. pool nice, 10min walk from the beach and probably the same to the main part of the strip where all the bars and restaurants are, we were there 6th July till 20th and had a pleasant stay.

Must add 1 thing, if you visit their website don't be put off by how remote it looks and bare, it is far nicer now and they could with updating the picture because this doesn't do it justice at all.

didn't stay here but it became our local, serves carling at 2.50 euros,magners 3.00 euros and you get a little bowl of nuts, a nice bar to watch the world go by at.

Yamass!

Kalamaki Resort - (Resorts on Zante)

Julie T          9/10

ideal place for a relaxing break, the beach is lovely and quite warm, safe for the kids you can walk quitw far out and still be at your knees the turtles are lovely to watch, hire a pedalo, don't bother paying trip prices, you will see just as many popping their heads up for a breather. Theres plenty of places to eat, a handful of shops and a couple of bars.

Kalamaki Beach - (Beaches on Zante)

Julie T          10/10

lovely sandy beach,the turtles are here so you can't be walking across the back of the beach because of their nests, there are a few beds,50 approx if you want 1 you need to be down the before 12, its only 7euros for 2 beds,a brolly and a table, i didn't get down in time to make use of them, had to make do with a lilo and parasol, if nyou join the beach at the main entrance go right its quieter and you get more space, you are right in the flight path but i enjoy watching the planes.

Fab,Fab,Fab what a fab day out, we went on this trip via TEZ trips ( far cheaper than booking with the rep)  for my moms birthday,our driver was Ray and we followed Ian OMG, they are good drivers, you start with a coffee in a little bar by turtle island, if your bladder is in the slightest bit weak, do not have a drink because once the off roading starts you will be needing incontinence pads, its excellent and the views from the aerials are fab, great lunch, and great info on the island, 2 great blokes, realy worth doing but do be careful what you buy at the wine tasting event, mom bought some cream he let her off with 1 euro because it was her birthday she paid 9 euro, in the shop back at the resort it was only 6! so be warned.
