can i have the truth please

love zante so much and i want to book again for june 2014.

found a good deal to the mecedonia apts in kalamaki(not stayed in kalamaki before).

thomas cook say the apts are 200m from the resort centre but reviews say its a taxi ride away.

like the sound of the mecedonia but only if its close to bars and restaurants.

don't want a long walk home in the evening after a belly full of ale.

so what is the truth?

regards tracey

If you were to walk from the Macedonia to Venue Bar in the middle of the strip is 1.2km 15 mins to the Old Road its 1.7km about 20mins walk.

To get to the begining of the strip its as Pammark says 10mins.

We stayed at the Macedonia 3 yrs ago and our first time in Kalamaki. In my personal opinion it was too far out for us - we have since stayed mid strip and it is perfect for the Old Road too.

The above posts are quite accurate and tbh Kalamaki is not that big - I didn't think the Macedonia was far enough away to warrent a taxi (unless you are going straight to the Old Road) but did think it was a bit of a hike especially when the sun was still out as you headed out for an evening.

On the plus side it is a lovely complex, close to the beach and you do have a supermarket about 5 mins away tops. Paolo Restaurant is probably about 7 mins away then another few mins to bars....... I am just a bit lazy and found it a long walk back in early hours if we had been at the Old Road.

This link will show you a map so you can see exactly where everything is in relation to the Macedonia and you can make your own mind up (we have met lots of people who have stayed further away than the Macedonia and it was not a problem for them). Whatever you decide, enjoy and I am sure you will love Kalamaki http://www.justzante.co.uk/kalamaki.htm

We stayed here in aug and I think it was in perfect location two mins to top of road where the main strip begins with a couple of supermarkets bus stops and then another couple mins to the restaurants and bars never had an issue walking anywhere . 5 mins down road to beach really loved it here :-)

Macedonia are in a perfect location,a 10 minute stroll for the restaurants/bars/shops. My mum has some mobility problems & was able to walk there & back every night. No way is it a taxi ride. IMO the Macedonia are in a PERFECT location & fab apts too with wonderful friendly hosts. Don't hesitate to book the Macedonia,we stayed in the Exotica in 2011,which was seconds off the strip but much preferred the location of Macedonia.

We stayed in Kalamaki Beach hotel which is at the end of the same road as Macedonia. It took us 10 minutes to walk to the top of the road and along to where the first bars were. We liked the Drunk Corner and it was 10-12 mins walk max to there total from KBH.

Go to the Venus if you can get in, very nice clean, centre of Kalamaki, nice walks and about 10 min walk to the beach.
