Some Moaning Mini Got This All Wrong On Trip Advisor;
So glad to hear that Lola is still there giving everyone a wide berth (especially the cameras)... also very happy to hear that the lovely family that ran this hotel didn't sell up and are still there... great stay was had by all that he Sofias Hotel
Never fail to have a great time at Sofia's, LUV IT!!, cant wait to return next year, love to Sofia and her family xx
Its no longer up for sale and the family still run it xx
Just got back from Zante, Sofia's is a lovely little complex, very clean. The rooms are basic which just added to the rustic feel, there is a double ring kettle and fridge, but to be honest we ate out (yoyo's and heavens kitchen). Anyway the staff are friendly and helpful, the beds are comfy, and the beach is 5 minutes away, what more could you want!!
stayed in Sofias 12 years ago and loved it there. We have been back to Kalamaki many more times since and have always been welcomed back into soifas with open arms from her and her 2 girls in the shop. It is such a shame that one day we will go over and they wont be there no more. For those of you that dont know Sofia is haveing to sell the whole complex for family reasons. I hoep the sale takes a few more trips to go. Everything was always clean and we found all the friendly, the staff however on the inside may have changed in the years since we have stayed.
Fair hotel, rooms are basic with a bathroom that is pretty poor.
ive just came back from sophias.ok hotel. nice cocktails and good area.

can someone please tell me what the exhange rate is at sofias against the £???
Stayed at the Sofia apartments this September. Absolutely fantastic! All the staff were so friendly, especially Rhea and Jane. Really nice room, cleaned every day and the bar and pool were great too. The Sofia supermarket is incredibly well stocked. (take rolls or something from there on the day of your flight home as the airport snack bar is EXTORTIONATE!) Could not recommend this place highly enough, would definitely stay their again.
I stayed at the Sofia Apartments last year and am very suprised at the comments I am reading here. I found the place to be perfect. I had no complaints. Of course we had a small army of ants marching accross our floor but what more can you really expect in such a warm country. The rooms were big and spacious but basic. Why are people complaining about this unless they are going on holidays to sit indoors! We found the staff to be more than helpful with them all going out of their way for everybody we met there. Nick was a bit strange as others have been saying, but we just made a laugh of it! Concerning the films in the evening, you can prob be guarenteed that the people complaining bought the copies of the films from the guys selling them at night time.
Just back from Sofias and loved every minute of it. Totally forgot to get Alex and Adam's e-mail addresses though! So if you guys are reading this, it's Julie...as in Julie and Anna lol. E-mail me, email@example.com. Wish we were back again! x x
JUST RETURNED FROM 2 WEEKS IN SOPHIA APPARTMENTS (aka Hotel) AND HAD A TERRIFIC TIME. WAS THERE LAST YEAR AS WELL AND HOPE TO GET MARRIED THERE NEXT YEAR!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND SEE YOU NEXT YEAR....
Just back from the Sofia. We loved it. The accomdation was quite small but the Hotel itself was fab. The staff were brilliant, very helpfull and willing to help with anything. The Sofia was spotless and the rooms were cleaned on a regular basis with clean towels and sheets every other day. There was a great atmosphere about the place and the location was perfect, just along the main street, near all the bars and restarunts. I think it a great place to stay for all, families with small children, young people looking for a good holiday and also other people. All and all we had a great time there and would defo go back
Excellent, excellent, excellent what more can I say. Its like home from home. Nick & Rhea are so so nice we had the best time, and they really are the nicest people you could meet, Nick, Rhea and all the staff at the Sofia could not do enough for us. The rooms were in excellent condition, clean and tidy. We will definitley be back again next year! With more people, we would recommend Sofia to anyone. Thanks for a great holiday!! The mad liverpool fan!! You should try the flamming coktails, (EXCELLENT)!!!!!!
We ahev satyed in Sofia's before, and it was a wonderful place to stay. I wasn't too far from the beach and had a shop and bar open nealry all day. The straff who are mostly the family of Sofia, were wonderfully helpfull and always smiling. Try and stop me from going back
