Weather, food, hotel and people all fantastic. Lots of excursions and places to see.
About to set off for our 4th visit.
Alykes is wonderful (unless you need noisy night life, if you want that go to Laganas.)
Wonderful hospitality , safe , wonderful food, beaches, walks countyside, everything you need for a great holiday.
Going again in 7 days - can't wait. Back in 1987 we had out first foreign holiday in Zante. Terrified of flying I didn't fly again until 2007, started going abroad with my lovely best friend Chrissie. We did Spain a couple of times, then Malta (what a let down that was !) and last year Zante - Chrissie had never been anywhere in Greece before and was in love with it before we got down the steps of the plane. We had a lovely time, the weather was lovely the hotel (Carretta Beach) was lovely the staff couldn't do enough for us. Then 2 days left I had a nasty fall and needed 5 stitches. The Doctor was brilliant and she was very handy with the needle so much so I've hardly got a scar (Bio-oil helped) So I've got a permanent reminder of Zante ! Put off - no went back in September with my husband had a great time again !! So We are counting the minutes to going.
We went to Zakynthos in april 2007. Such a beautiful island. Beautiful coasts, visit the shipwreck and discover the blue lagoon bays in the area.
It was a wonderful vacation, we had heard some negative things about the accommodation. But they turned out not to be true, the hotel was fine and the people were very hospitable and friendly, breakfast was fine too. The room was pretty spacious and neat
Zakynthos is a great, beautiful island. Definitely well-worth exploring the island by renting a scooter or a car. Also nice, a jeep safari which you can often book at your travel agency. The landrovers reach places you would not dare driving yourself! The
