The Mavrikos is a fantastic hotel and a really great place to stay. There's a really nice pool area, with plenty of sunbeds around. There are also lots of umbrellas situated around the pool, for those who prefer to relax in the shade.
The bar area is spacious and both food and drink are very reasonably priced. However, where The Mavrikos really excels is the service. All of the staff are warm, welcoming and helpful. Jean, in particular, is a delight to talk to.
There is evening entertainment on certain nights of the week also, which was great fun. My favourite act was a band called the Copycat Dolls, who do an Abba tribute set, as well as a party set with a variety of songs. They perform at The Mavrikos every Saturday night and they provide great entertainment for all the family.
I had a great time in Zante and I can't recommend The Mavrikos highly enough!
