A perfect holiday on Zakynthos staying at the Gloria Maris hotel. The rooms are a bit small but were clean and we had a dream view of the sea and Marathonisi Island from our balcony. The gardens and pool area were wonderful and there was a small private beach with a bar down the steps. The food was good and staff were friendly.
You should rent a car to see the rest of the island, but we were always pleased to arrive back to the hotel . We got a good deal and didn't expect too much, but here we were 100% happy and can recommend the hotel to anyone.
