I would be interested in visiting this hotel, can you tell me which tour operator would be best. thanks
MY PARTNER AND MYSELF GO TO KALAMKI TWICE A YEAR WE HAVE MEET SOME WONDERFUL PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS ALTHOUGH WE DONT STAY AT JOHN&JOYS WE SIT BY THE POOL EVERY DAY ALL DAY MICHAEL AND STAFF NEVER MIND AND ALWAYS GO OUT THERE WAY FOR US EVEN WHEN WE HAVE HAD TO MUCH OUZO SO MICHAEL MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH OUZO FOR ME AND BILLY ON SEPTEMBER 20TH XX
John and Joys hotel was a result of much time spent by reading and comparing various reviews. And we really were not disappointed. The owner Michael and all his staff were nice, professional, reliable, hard working people who did their best for us. The charming young lady at the pool bar always gave us an extra cutlery for a lunch when we orderd just one portion for both - we never could eat it. Michael felt with us when we were rather tired after a rush night. Stay at John and Joys will be our only choice in Kalamaki if we were to return in the future. And we hope so.

We have travelled the world and stayed in some of the finest hotels. This family run hotel has it's own special warm welcome. Zakynthos was one of the most beautiful destinations we have vistited/ Adventurous, fun yet relaxing & filled natural beauty. We have been twice now and can't wait to go again. The hotel and the team there are just wonderful! The location is excellent on Kalamaki Beach, and the swimming pool a perfect place to relax. The views are gorgeous.
went when i was only 7 years old and absolutely loved it here. we were there for just the week and i cant wait to go back there again. can remember athena and her sister and got on pretty well. if they are reading, i was the little boy from wales who organized that massive football game up the road with all the people staying at the john and joys :D :D cant wait to see u all again

Telephone number for John and Joys hotel in Kalamaki Zante. The number shown on the website appears to be incorrect. Alternatively a brochure for summer 2005 showing prices.
This is a family run hotel, Micheal,Joy,Athena are the best !! they are freindly,pleasent people. The food is great and accomodation very good too. the pool is so relaxing as not many people stay by pool as the hotel is so close to the beach on about 50yards away from pool but for those of you who like pools then this hotel is a must, we stayed there july 04 and its the best holiday we have spent in kalamaki, and we have been going there 9yrs now.. as to say we will be going back to John & Joys hotel 2005. Thumbs up to all who work there such friendly people....You can book direct so go on give it a try..you wont be disappointed..
LIL the hotel is not in our brochures they are in the Chez republic brochures this yr.
Hello can anyone tell me what tour operator john and joys hotel is with?
We went here every day for a snack from the beach, seemed to be hooked up purely for the German travel agents. In any event, it was fab...recommend the pork souvlaki for lunch in pita bread...a steak at only €1.70...then wobble back to the beach aafter that and a few beers....
Very close to the beach and all the staff there are very friendly
for us one of the best hotel in Kalamaki! Nice personal, clean swimmingpool, good snacks and drinks.
Hello Joy, Babs wants to ask you something ...
Would you be able to offer any discount to any old friends during August for a week or maybe two Hope you are well Mike
The hotel sits right on the beach, so when you have breakfast in the morning you can sit out on the veranda and gaze at the mediterrean. It is owned by a family so they are very willing to accomodate, and advise all the best bits of the island. Great if you had a family, or a couple who wanted to get away! Food is great and if you want something particular just ask and Dimitra the cook, (that girl has been cooking since she could walk). Can't wait to get back there, hopefully I'll win the trip!
