Spent 2 weeks in the karras last month and absolutely loved it! The hotel is in the perfect location, close to the beach and close to the nightlife (but not so close that u cant hear yourself think!). The rooms are pretty standard studio apartments, but you dont need luxury for the amountof time you spend in the room especially with so much to do in zakynthos! I cant compliment the staff enough, both the receptionists (3 in total) and the cleaning staff were extremely friendly, courteous, and hard working.
The pool bar owner, Spiros, and the girls that work there, in particular Marina, were the people that made my holiday what it was. They are so genuine and so open hearted, they make the karras a home from home! Spiros was only to happy to accomodate the wishes of any guest staying in the hotel, whether that was staying open til four o clock in the morning for two people or having karaoke for twenty people, he'd only be too happy to help! He is a true gent and made every effort to ensure all guests enjoy their stay. During my first week i became ill due to the heat and spiros kindly brought me to the pharmacy rather than allow me walk through Laganas in the sun, if this isnt a perfect example of the greek hospitality then i dont know what is!
Laganas has so much to offer and a week is not long enough to cram everything in. I would definitely recommend the trips to Kefalonia, and Olympia. They are both long days but if you're into sight-seeing and history then they are worth it. I would recommend the shipwreck trip but we didnt actually get to see it,the sea was too rough that day so we had to turn back, so fore-warned this may happen if you book this trip!! A trip to Turtle Island on a glass bottom boat is a must for anyone staying in Laganas!
Last but by no means least for a diving experience while in Zakynthos call to Pearl and David at the Blue Dolphin Diving Centre!
