We stayed at the Zafira Studios as a family from the 27th July to the 10th August and this was one of the best two weeks we have spent on holiday in Greece. All of the many excellent reviews are correct and we must endorse them as the studios are very clean and well looked after. As is the rest of the hotel, bar and pool area. The staff are very welcoming, helpful and can not do enough for you. The main details of Zafira have been covered many times - but we must say a big thank you to Dimitri, Yiannis, Zaffi and the other staff for helping make our holiday ! They all work so hard.
Whlst out an about, we did try the local restaurant's and our favourite's were Vicky's & Gorgonas, where we ate 3 times at each. At Vicky's I tried the Prawn Sagnaki (another reviewer had advised that this is not on the menu, but ask for it). This was fantastic and I was not disappointed. The stuffed tomatoes, tatziki and greek salad were also very good. At Gorgona's, I tried the swordfish and also the lavraki, which was very good. Sakis was ok, but we felt the food, service and staff were better at Gorgona (next door), so only went to Sakis once. I didn't like Olga's Place as most of the food was flooded with olive oil. That said, one of my daughters did have a pizza, which was good. We also didn't think much of Licos on the beach as we only went there once for lunch.
Must not forget to mention the Meze night at the hotel - The food was fantastic and good value. Our daughters loved the opportunity of trying all sorts of different dishes and didn't go hungry.
I must also mention Thomson's. From the moment we got on the plane, things went smoothly and were great (with the pilot talking to our girls just before take off), to the way in which the transfers & ferries were dealt with by the reps, took away any worries and stress we may have had. Laura the rep at Zafira was also very helpful & informative and helped with our car hire. The only real issue we had was upon return - the dreaded M25 !
Most definitely recommend this property !!!
