I spent one week in June in Brati Arcoudi Hotel. It was still a low season there, and the hotel was not overcrowded which I liked very much. This is a family run hotel, with kind and helpful staff.
The hotel consists of three buildings, one of which is a reception building. There are two separate swimming pools. The hotel buildings are surrounded by spacious green area with palm trees, citrus trees, and beautiful flower plants.
As for rooms, they are basic but very clean, and there is everything you need. The walls are painted in a nice cream colour, and over the beds there are lamps with very pleasant light.
The balcony is spacious and it is so nice to relax there, especially in the evening.
I had a room no 219 on the 2nd floor, facing the west side, with an unobstructed view in front of me, and what an amazing view this was! The sea, pine trees, and in the evening - the lights of Zakynthos. I am really grateful to Mrs. Spiridoula Brati that I could have this room. Before my arrival I sent an e-mail to the hotel requesting a room on the 2nd floor,, and the room I got was more than I could expect.
The hotel offers tasty, freshly prepared lunches and dinners.
The cleaning was very friendly, and cleaning done always during my absence. Every day I got fresh towels, and more than I needed.
The absolute highlight of the area is the 10 km long beach. The walking distance is about 20 minutes. It is a pleasant walk as there is not too much traffic on the road. The hotel offers transport to the beach once a day at 10.30, with pick up at 13.00.
The beach is simply stunning, with golden sand, unspoiled nature, without crowds of people. It is save to swim and there is no even a single rock or stone insike. the In front of you there are two islands Zakynthos and Kefalonia. There are amazing sunsets to watch from the beach. In June the sun was going to the sea between the two islands. Along the beach there are only 3 low-rise luxury hotels. My film about this beach is at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kp8FthbLOk&list=UU17iq6KpJ7GODrVqfvUslrQ .
The other beach – a bay beach is about 5 minutes away. It is also nice, but once you have been to the long beach you will not want anything else !
There is also Loutra Kyllini thermal water center – it offers individual sulphur thermal baths for the € 10. I used the facility 4 times, the staff was very kind and attentive.
Only 15 km away there is the port of Kyllini, with ferry connections to Zakynthos and Kefalonia. Unfortunately no bus service to Kyllini, the taxi will cost €20 one way.
My stay in the Brati Arcoudi Hotel was so relaxing and enjoyable, and would like to return there, rent a car and explore the area.
