Reviewed 23 August 2014

one of the best areas to stay in Zakinthos! the location is perfect near to the best beaches on the island, nearby you can rent small boats and see the amazing waters and caves. the hotel has good prices especially for parents with kids because they ofer small villas with kitchen and you have a quiet garden and pool surrounding. the owners don't speak english but they try a lot to make you welcome and provide anything you ask. I will go again next year because after changing three hotels on the whole island (really expensive and teenagers areas) on Markella i found the vacations I was looking for.

Arrived here after keri village went bankrupt. Two rooms for four people, owner very pleasant but no English spoken so difficult to ask for anything. Pool bar poorly stocked, not even fridge so drinks are warm! Electrics in room dangerous, flashing power points, smoking hob etc. fridge does not work so impossible to self cater. Requested a linen change half way through holiday and left with one clean towel between two people. Told that they have no more towels and we can have another one tomorrow. All in all, expect beautiful peaceful surroundings, a lovely pool but standard of rooms and facilities similar to smaller islands twenty years ago! Can't make cup of coffee in room so v expensive!!

The Markela though is basic, on the whole is clean.Debbie, Dimitri and Lena make you most welcome.
the hotel and the beach is unspoilt in that area of the island. Perfect for a chill out time.There are plenty of places to eat at the beach and very small supermarkets to by food and booze.

From the moment we arrived ( courtesy of Dimitri collecting us from the airport ) we were made to feel so welcome and encouraged to get in holiday mode. Markella is very well run and boasts clean accommodation within a pretty garden setting. Nothing is too much trouble for Debbie and Dimitri who just want you to have a fabulous holiday. The bar area serves drinks and snacks during the day (Debbie's food is lovely and fresh) and the supermarkets are not far to stock up your fridge. Evenings, you can always find someone to talk to at the bar for that 'last one' before bed. Lena the cleaner is so happy and pleasant and keeps the rooms lovely and clean.

The seafront is a 5 / 10 minute walk depending on how slowly you like to stroll and everyone is really friendly along the way! There is a fabulous bakery serving lovely coffee with beautiful cakes and about 8 tavernas and a couple of bars (not an Irish bar or full English breakfast in sight!!!) . Absolutely beautiful views across the sea to Turtle Island and Laganas bay and can be enjoyed with a drink at the Rock Café on the front.

We ate mainly at the Keri Taverna as this was the best food we sampled and the staff and service were excellent. Turn right also out of Markella and the first taverna you come to offers a really traditional Greek atmosphere with barbeque and vines above. highly recommend both.

This resort is perfect for those wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and we will definitely return.

Debbie and Dimitri also own a hotel a short drive away which words can only describe as stunning!!! The views are panoramic and will be an amazing wedding venue once they become established.

All in all a wonderful holiday with wonderful company and fantastic hosts!!

We returned to Zante after just over 30 years and weren't disappointed. There are some terrible built up places on the island now, but this isn't one of them. A very unspoilt relaxing resort with friendly inexpensive tavernas selling good Greek food and cheap local wine. As for the Markella Studios etc, what can we add to what hasn't already been written by others? It is certainly as good as everything that everyone has said, very relaxing accomodation run by an enthusiastic couple Debbie and Dimitri, you couldn't want for better hosts. Not forgetting also Lena and the their friendly dog Maddy. Their friendlyness is overwhelming, nothing was too much trouble for them, and it was great to listen to Dimitri moaning about everything and everyone, but it gives you a good insight into the problems of Greece, but he loves the English! There is a good sized well kept clean swimming pool and nice gardens to relax in. A perfect Greek holiday.
It's easy walking to the seafront for the for the tavernas, but also worth an even shorter walk in the other direction for the Taverna Skaltsas, typically Greek and great for a lazy lunch. Several small supermarkets and bakery close by. At the back of the accomodation next to the lake you will find ducks, fish, frogs, fish and terrapins in the small river.

Room Tip: Go for the garden suites, plenty of room and very comfortable and they look out over the garden and...

We spent 11 days at Markella in June this year and it was lovely, Dmitri & Debbie and Lena really look after their guests. We had a self-catering studio (with no intention of eating in) and it was perfectly well-equipped with fridge, kettle, toaster and two cooking rings. Basic but clean room and bathroom with everything working well and no problems with plumbing, hot water, etc, as can be experienced in the Greek islands. Keri itself was quite big enough for the length of our stay, with several good tavernas, snack bars and cafes serving great local food at reasonable process. We would definitely visit again. The location is beautiful and Markella had a lovely sizeable pool and a snack bar serving breakfast, snacks and drinks. Definitely recommend this place! Sue & Peter, Devon

We spent a week here at the beginning of June. It was our second visit which is unusual as we never go back to the same place twice. The studios are basic but spotlessly clean and are an excellent choice for a relaxing holiday. There are plenty of sunbeds around the pool if you just want to relax and Dimitri and Debbie are marvellous hosts - nothing is too much trouble be it a beer or a snack or information on where to eat or hire a car.
Limni Keriou is a gem. A quiet little place with half a dozen places to eat. Would particularly recommend Keri Taverna, Poseiden (at the far end of the bay) and La Bruschetta Italian restaurant which is inland and has a lovely view of the bay.
There are some good walks - inland to Keri village and the lighthouse. Debbie has written directions. We also hired a boat from Big Blue and explored some of the little coves and turtle island.
Overall a perfect place to chill that doesn't break the bank!

Room Tip: First floor rooms are good.
