We stayed there for the first two weeks in september with three other girls! We were recommended pythari by first choice but we heard bad reviews about the rooms and staff. When we arrived it was far better than we expected (even though we did get the newly decorated apartments) the location was perfect it was still on the strip but it was a ten minute walk! We were equipped with almost everything we needed. Our rooms were abit smaller than we expected but for girls who are hardly spending time in them it did us fine!
Only thing we weren't keen on were the staff, as soon as we arrived the owner, Nikos, come running over to warn us about being watched by cameras and that we wernt alowed visitors or to come in too late at night, which we respected but for girls who are on holiday in Laganas, we don't want to be lectured about what we can and cant do, which we were reminded further by the 4 signs hung up in our apartments: a do and dont list! Another thing was the staff in Pythari restauraunt they were extremely rude and always watched us when we walked passed. Would not recommend the restaraunt but I can't complain about everything because the pool bar was great and cheap enough to eat for ya brekkie or toasties.
Other than that we had a brilliant holiday and would probably go back to laganas sometime in the future!
i stayed here with my mate from the 11th may 2008 till the 18th may
I went to pythari studios last summer with my best mate.When we arrived we was put in small room,it smelt off cigrets and wall lights didnt work!We stayed in there to the next mornin,untill my mate complained and we got move to another room,which was great.With a balcony looking over the pool.The pool was lovely.Brilliant holiday

I holidayed in Lagana 6 years ago and spent many days lounging around at the Pythari apartmemts and eating at the restaurant. I would now like to go back and actually stay at the apartments but can not find them in any travel brochures. Can anybody let me know which tour operator they are using?
the studios are very very basic and we werent happy with the cooking areas in the studios, the sztudios also smelt funny at times. The pool, bar and resturant we amazing overall a good holiday!
hey everyone. me and my boyfriend are going to the studios in about 2 weeks do they have lockable cash boxes, irons and hairdryers in the rooms??
well what can i say !!! another excellent stay in the pythari . everything at the apartments was as we remembered . viv and christos were very nice as always , it was great to see them again . the one big change though was niko,s cocktail bar . 3 years ago it was just like a little shack but now... they knocked it down and its bloody huge ! hahaha . must say that my wife and i as well as our buddies sam and mark were disappointed with orange restaurant . 2 years ago it was our favourite but this time it wasnt very good at all ( steer clear ! ) . in my opinion the 2 best restaurants on the island are pythari taverna where the food is amazing and the prices very very reasonable and the staff ( hi nikos ! ) are polite and very cheerful . next up is georgios ( its on kalamaki road ) we all loved this place and if you go please try the beef burritos they are beautiful !! this is the second time we have been to the pythari and ill say that we will definately be back ! as for the bad reports on here youll find its a load of toss !!! if you are here for a holiday well done its a great choice
going back to zante in september, 1st time in 5 years, had some great times before, especially at pythari and nikos, staff and service were great, can anyone tell me if the taverna is still as good, and are all the old staff there
there is no air conditioning at the pythari . but to be honest you wont mind as the rest of your holiday will be great ! we went there on honeymoon in august 2004 and i can honestly say ive never had a better holiday . we loved it so much my wife and i go back this sunday (16th july ) viv and christos are great hosts and if you need any help just ask . hope you enjoy your stay as much as i did !
hi me and my boyfriend have just come back from zante on 2 july 2006 staying at the pythari apartments to say this was our first time visiting zante we had an excellent week wish we could of stayed longer the weather was fabulous very hot indeed which was fantastic...The studio we stayed in was clean and tidy the only problem we found was the shower in the bathroom we think it could do with a make over and the studio didnt have any air conditioning so it was very hot at night in but we got through it so we werent bothered..The pool was excellent and clean the water was really warm and we were very surprised with how deep it was has i couldnt touch the bottom...The staff at the apartments were very friendly and willing to talk especially niko who owns tha bar and restaurant the food was absolutely fantastic and at the snack bar too...Its about 15-20 minutes walk to some of the bars and restaurants and beach which wasnt too bad has there was lots to see and do on the way and it doesnt feel like ur walking for that long...We went on one of the boat trips to turtle island to see the turtles which was brilliant as we got to see lots of turtles and really close up and the guy who took us on the boat was great and has he gave us lots of information about the turtles and the island....If ur thinking of going to zante then we would certainly recommend staying at the pythari apartments as we certainly will be going back there next year as they are located back from the main road and in a quiet area and would suit all types of people.....
Hey I'm heading off for a week on friday and will be staying in pythari

Wondering what the craic is like, can ya get to smuggler's cove from laganas and is there entertainment in the studio complex? Oh yea and are the beds single or double? there was f all information in the travel brochure!!!!

Stayed in Pythari August 05 for 2 weeks and have been tryin to put a comment on the web since but for some reason it wouldnt work maybe this is why...
Hey Viv! It ian, from the group of 20 lads (including, maz, max, harry etc.. and me, The Gaffa!)..
well hello everyone just back from 2week stay in pythari studios and i can only describe my stay as disastorous the compex is fine with regards layout and pool,now to start on the apartments themselves they are tiny seriously my suitcase was bigger which is why the maid sweeps everything under the bed.the self catering faciluties are prehistoric and thats been kind,the resturaunt next door the waiting staff are so unprofessional and untrained its like faulty towers on a good day when we ate there we saw people complaining and thought they were being overly fussy but we ended up walking out because of the substanderd food we had thrown at us and you daren't complain because you will only be mocked by the waiter every time you pass by.so basically haven been on a lot of holidays i can honestly say that these were the smallest and worst apartments i have had the misfortune to stay in. And the resturaunt was the most unmannerly badly cooked food i have eaten.
