Some Moaning Mini Got This All Wrong On Trip Advisor;
The Rooms are Basic & Clean, With Daily Maid, Who Even Did Our Washing Up, not expected.
Sara, Reception; & Amanada Bar; Both Lovely Ladies, Very Helpful, Freindly & Polite, Well Sarah is, Only Joking Amanada.
Lola has to be the best Bull Dog Ever, Pool Cleaned & Tested Twice Daily, But After First Rainfall for a Long Time, It Soon Clouded; But Was Treated with Chemical straight away.
Ackos, Bar; What a Funny Guy, With some Great Stories, Good Luck In Oz Mate, Dont forget not to go more tahn 2 days without Extreme Sports.

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. 

 
As with everyone in greece once you stay with them you not only a guest you are family and i feel upset that one day i will go over to find some of my darling family no longer there.

Fair hotel, rooms are basic with a bathroom that is pretty poor.

Some hotel staff were friendly, couple were note - good evening entertainment though if you like comedy nights / football-
 
Good location - not to far away from the beach literally a 10 min walk - taxi rank close too. Located at the end of the main Kalamaki strip, with close access to all shops / resturants.
 
There is a dog at the hotel, if you dont like dogs, dont worry she wont come near you, shes rather distant. But dog lovers will love Lola (British Bulldog).
 
Beautiful area's around the hotel with fruit being grown within the ground... good size swimming pool / kids pool.
 
Enjoyed my stay here at Sofia's.

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.

I would sincerely recommend these apartments for people who are not expecting the ritz! For basic accom thats cheap and very cheerful, I will be back to these apartments this year.

 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!


 BRILLIANT VENUE! ' ELVIS CLONED SHOW' A HUGE ATTRACTION - STAFF (NICK, RHEA AND AKOS BEHIND THE BAR; DEBBIE AT RECEPTION; MISS SOPHIA, ATHENA AND MARTINA IN THE SUPERMARKET; MARIA THE CLEANER; AND THE COOK (never got her name) ARE ALL VERY FRIENDLY, WELCOMING AND HELPFUL!  ROOMS TIDIED AND TOWELS CHANGED DAILY - CONSTANT HOT WATER AND ELECTRIC KETTLE/CAN-OPENER/BOTTLE-OPENER ALL PROVIDED ALONG WITH 2-RING COOKER, SINK, CUTLERY, CROCKERY AND SAUCEPANS.  PIRATE DVDs WERE POOR QUALITY BUT OFFERED PEOPLE SHELTER FROM HOTTEST SUN.  ROOSTERS AND COCKRELS IN THE DISTANCE WERE ANNOYING ON OCCASION BUT ONE SOON GOT USED TO THEM.

 SOPHIA'S APRATMENTS ARE APPROX. 5 MINS WALK FROM A BEAUTIFUL SANDY BEACH (turtle sanctuary); 7 KILOMETERS FROM CAPITAL TOWN OF ZAKYNTHOS (1euro each way by bus) AND 3 KILOMETERS FROM THE AIRPORT, ALTHOUGH THE LATTER IS NO PROBLEM AS IT CLOSES DOWN AROUND 10PM DUE TO TURTLE SANCTUARY.

 TOUR AROUND ISLAND IS A MUST - EITHER BY BOAT OR COACH AS IS A VISIT TO THE BLUE CAVES, A TRIP TO OLYMPIA ON THE MAINLAND OF GREECE OR A VISIT TO THE UNDERGROUND 'MELISINA LAKE' ON KEFELONIA ISLAND.

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

Liverpool F           

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)!!!!!! 

Becky R           

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 

Anne O           

Can anyone tell me if the Sofia Hotel is far from the beach?  We are going at the start of June and would like some information on how far away from the centre of Kalamaki we are and most importantly how far from the beach the hotel is.
