Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I have just returned from a week’s stay at The Athina Apts and enjoyed every minute. After a long tiring day traveling we were met at reception by the owner Athina who welcomed us and explained everything we needed to know about the apartments and the area, she was so friendly and professional it really was refreshing talking to her. The apartment itself was spacious clean, fresh and well equipped. The maid service was second to none and they turned up every day during our stay to change the bedding, towels and essentials whether needed or not, well done ladies. The pool area was spotless and the snack bar served a wide variety of meals and drinks, thanks Dennis. In the afternoon Magic George takes over the snack bar and his cooking is exceptional (he’s asked me to say that). No seriously the food is really good from breakfast to dinner and the prices are really good value for the large fresh potions served. Once again I can’t thank the management and all the staff enough for making us feel so relaxed and welcome, a perfect holiday. We will be returning soon and I will be recommending to all our friends and family to visit The Athina Apts.

Second time staying in Athina apartments and was not disappointed. The rooms are basic, but really clean (and cleaned daily) and the family and staff are so friendly and helpful. The apartments are located near the shops/bus routes and a short walk to a beautiful, quiet beach. They have also added a pool this year, which we used a lot! Can't fault Athina Apts and would definitely recommend them as a holiday destination. Top tip - book with them directly rather than using a holiday company as this ensures they get the full amount rather than the percentage the holiday companies offer them!

The welcome we had from the owners everyday was lovely, so friendly and helpful.
Perfect bar staff too, Dennis and George would do anything for you, both were very kind and nothing was to much trouble. Food served was amazing, my kids loved their Gyros and especially the chips made out of little potatoes.
The apartments are in a perfect location, close to all shops and restaurants. Apartments were cleaned regularly and bins emptied every day, towels and bedding changed regularly .
The pool was amazing, lovely and clean. lots of free sunbeds all day.
They all worked very hard.
Can't wait to return.
Thanks Davies and Powell families. X

Great apartments with very friendly and helpful staff, amazing value, good location just a short walk from the beautiful Kalamaki beach and about a 30-40 minute walk from the busy party city of Laganas. The pool bar has fantastic and likeable staff who love to spend time with and talk to the guests, and the food is exceptional and affordable.

The town of Kalamaki itself has a whole strip of bars and restaurants, and multiple supermarkets for anything you need while staying, usually at a very affordable price. The view from the apartment features a large mountain and an expansive skyline for watching the sun set from your balcony.

Shoutout to George the barman who made our stay even better every day and night.

These apartments are in the perfect location, less than a minute from the bars and restaurants and a short stroll to the beach, some rooms (not many) overlook the strip but others (most) overlook the pool and mountain views with sea glimpses which are stunning. We stayed in a room overlooking the pool etc and we were very happy.
Our room although very basic was clean, linen and towels changed regularly, more often than we were told on arrival! Our only criticism was a very small shower but it was manageable.
Pool area great, lovely pool, no trouble getting a sun bed. Bar and snack bar good if you don’t want to go far during the day, plenty of choice, bar stays open till late so perfect for a nightcap.

Ellie, George and Dennis were exceptional, nothing too much trouble, any issues dealt with straight away. We recommend this as a base and want to say thank you for a lovely stay xx

This is the 3rd time in the last 3 visits to Zakynthos that I have stayed at the Athina Apartments. It's a perfect place to stay, at a very reasonable price, to enjoy all the amenities Kalamaki has to offer and although it is central , there was no disturbance experienced from the noise of traffic or holidaymakers. Everything that Kalamaki has to offer is available within a short walk. Each time that I have stayed here I have found everything perfect for me and now with the addition of the pool and the snack bar, even better. Athina, Ellie, Dennis and the staff are most helpful and considerate. Since I first stayed here, it has always been the place that I try and book for my Kalamaki holiday.

Lovely run family apartments. Apartments adequate with kettle toaster fridge 2 ring hob crockery & cutlery. Cleaned daily by the lovely cleaners. Sheets & towels changed twice a week. Free safe. Air con is charged €7 a day & used every day end of June/beginning July. The family are very welcoming. We have been here several times & now feel like it's home from home. The addition of the pool & pool bar last year makes it even better now. Food & drinks excellent & similar prices to other hotels/bars/restaurants in Kalamaki. Would recommend, we have already booked for next. Thank you to Ellie, Athina & Dennis for making our visits so enjoyable.

Just got back from a fantastic 10 nights at the Athena.
Came in 2019 and stayed here and decided there was nowhere else for us to stay in Kalamaki.
New pool area is great with the attached snack bar with Yannis doing a great job of running it in the day and George in the evening. The food is delicious and ample portions, courtesy of the chef.
We used the bar as a starting point before going for an evening meal and quite a few times as a nightcap.
The rooms are spotless and spacious with all you need for a comfy stay and in an excellent location for everything.
We’ll be back next year without doubt so Athina, Ellie, Dennis, Yannis and George Thank you and keep it up.
Ian/ Debra (room 32).

This is our second time this year to visit Athina Apartments. This time just adults. We had lovely rooms, very clean and maintained. The new pool and bar has made such a difference to the apartments. It is run by excellent staff, Janis, Dimitris and George, with a little help from the owner Dennis. The food is excellent by Dimitris and is worth trying the moussaka and the lamb klefico. Janis also makes a good coffee latte.

The cleaning side of the rooms are looked after by Athina, who is Dennis's mam, and 2 very nice ladies,who do a great job. Anything you need just ask and you will receive.

Ellie, who is Dennis's sister is also around to help with any issue you might have. They will ring taxis for you when needed.
We have been coming to these apartments since the early 2000s but our very first visit was 1996 when the island was a lot smaller. We loved it then and love it now.
If you choose these apartments you won't be disappointed. Very central to restaurants and shops.
