Ionian Blue Hotel - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

Have booked to stay at the Ionian Blue in 2010 really looking forward to it.

However, in the Thomson brochure it looks like air conditioning and safety deposit box are included
in the price ie it does not say they are an extra charge.  But looking at some of the comments it seems
some of you have had to pay for these items.  Hopefully Thomson have changed for next year and it
is included.  If its not can one of you let me know how much each will cost me.  Thanks.

Cheers Mitch, what a rip off, will try and do without it I think or maybe take a small fan with us. They should do it on a coin metre so you pay for what you use,would be so much better

and I think more people would you use it.  But not gonna let it spoil my holiday.  Again thanks.

Nick I have just returned from Kalimaki and visited Ionian Blue.  Right, drive to the main street from the airport turn left. Turn right opposite Vanessa hotel (which is on the left) as if you are going to the crazy golf and the Ionian is on the left just past the turn to the golf and behind the venus hotel cant miss it stands on its own.  Perfect location.  Thanks for air con info, but it doesnt say in the brochure payable local or anything, its one of the reasons I booked it, will have to go back to agent and

get it confirmed.  Thanks.

oh and Nick the brochure says they have hair dryers.  Also worth mentioning to you that they bathrooms have a small bath with the shower over, however there are no plugs, the rep advised us if we come to stay there the we take a plug is we like a bath.  How silly is that.  Hope my directions are ok. 

Garden Village - (Accommodation in Kalamaki)

recently spent a fabulous 2 weeks here, have come back to uk and as soon as the holidays were released I was on the internet at 8am to book for next year.  The accomodation is with Thomson next year and I am really disappointed as I cannot book on a flight from east midlands.  I know is sounds stupid that I dont want to travel to another airport but I live less than 10 minutes from east mids so makes sense for me

to travel from there.  I am really jealous of those that manage to book it and hope you all have fantastic holidays which I know you will, however I liked Kalimaki so much so have have booked to stay at the Ionian Blue instead but will def pop to see everyone at Garden Village.

I am trying to find a young couple that I met several years ago when they worked in Calypso restaraunt in Tsilivi, they are called Angela and Tony, I heard they had opened their own place in Keri and would love to trace them when we return to Zante in September this year, if anyone can supply me with any details of where I might find them I would be oh so grateful......................

Hi Phil, we went to Kalimaki for the first time this year, like you we had concerns

 regarding the plane noise, but found it not a problem, but they dont fly at night and the first flight out is about 6am.  We found it facinating watching them come in especially when we were on the beach, am sure your kids will love seeing them so close.  You hear the occasionally noise but after a couple of days you dont notice it.  I live close to east midlands aiport and I can honestly say the flights bother me more here as they are continual.  I am sure you will love it, we loved it so much we are going back early September.........and have booked to go again in May 2010, whoohoo!!!!!

Steve, thank you so very much for giving me the information.  If you are in contact with them can you please get a message to them saying Sue (Liz in my friend and I have been using her log of) and Martin are coming to Zante on 31st August and staying at the Amarylis in Kalimaki.

We used to spend a lot of time with them but lost their address when we move house and we havent been to Zante for several years now.  They are a fabulous couple....... Once again thank you and hope to hear from you again.........

oh dear that terrible I was recommended Amaryllis because it was ideal for families  and couples so I have booked to go in September for two weeks.  I have been looking forward

to this holiday so much but now I really am unsure if I even want to go.  If anyone else goes over the next couple of weeks can you please let me know if this is still going on.   I would rather lose the money than
have a nightmare holiday which yours must of been........

Thanks for you comments Vivien, really appreciate you replying.  I am going to look forward to my holiday and like you said its unlikely this (if it was happening there) will be happening in September.  Once again thank you and hope you all have a great holiday.

Hi Jo, 100% recommend garden village, truly amazing place.  But will depend if you want this year or next, could be booked up this year but just read of their review that someone got a late booking so you could be lucky.  If you want to go next year book early......its with Thomson next year.

Obviously not as cheap as it used to be, in June we were paying about 30-35 for a three course meal for 2 including a couple of drinks each.  There are loads of places to eat and lots of them have specials on offer to fit any budget.  Best place if you like an English breakfast we found was Vanessa on the main street, cant remember exact price but was a couple of Euros each cheaper than anywhere else.  Found a place the same price but you got half the meal so ended up having to have something else later.  We are going back again in September, cant wait.  Enjoy

Steve its Sue not Liz, as I think I mentioned before I use Liz's log on.  What a coincidence you going back for a second time we were there in June, tried to find Angela and Tony then but couldnt find anyone that could tell me where they were.  Martin and I would so love to see them again.  Only problem we are going to be staying in Kalimaki, so might be difficult to meet up without contact numbers,  unlesssssssss,  you could tell Tony when you see him Sunday that we are arriving Monday on East Midlands flight TOM7130 at approx 13.25 on Monday, we have pre-booked a taxi with first choice but there might be the slight chance he could be at the airport picking someone up at the same time and he might look out for us, or he might know the first choice driver....... really excited at the prospect that we might see them again, last time was the summer before they got married, and I cant remember how long ago that was. Really appreciate you trying to help us Steve and if we dont get to meet up then have a great holiday..... remember its Martin and Sue and we are staying at the Amarylis in KALIMAKI...................

Mr Popadooooo....oh I give up, Steve, thank you so much for telling Angela and Tony we were coming out. Met up with them and little Nikos last night, had a wonderful evening, perfect end to a perfect holiday, meeting up with them again in May.  Landed at 4pm today, weather was fabulous until 2am today when we had the most dreadful storm, scared the life out of me never heard thunder like it, forcast rain for the rest of the week so time to come home I think. Cant thank you enough.....

Hi Steve, its Sue again, hope like me you keep checking this site.  Wanted to let you know we are going back to Zante 7th May for two weeks, staying at the Tasos Villas in Kalmimaki.  If you reply can you reply on their page, would love to keep in touch.  Dont normally go this early in the year so just hope the weather will be ok.  Planning to meet up with Angela, Tony and Nikos, cant wait.  Hopefully will go back again later in the year but just bought a holiday home in Norfolk so spending lots of weekends there.  If you are going back have a wonderful time, but then again its always wonderful in Zante......fondest wishes and thanks for all you did last year.  Sue and Martin x
