We stayed in this fantastic hotel for a week in July. When we arrived we had no idea what to expect and only booked based on trip adviser reviews so were a little weary. We were however not disappointed. The staff go above and beyond at every opportunity to ensure that each individual has the most from their stay. The rooms are clean as is the rest of the hotel. The food is fantastic and varied and the snacks during the day are made to order.
The hotel is small, with only 30 rooms there is never a queue for food or drinks, always enough sun loungers and plenty of room in the pool.
The hotel is near to the strip but don't let that effect you if your not there for nights out because from our room you could not hear a thing. The hotel is a very short walk to the beach and there is a free shuttle from the end of the road to a very nice beach in st.nicholas where you can get a bargain for some awesome water sports! We did banana boat, jet skis, sofa and fly fish for €55.
There are also plenty of other cheap activities and plenty of competition to get a competitive price. We saw the caretta caretta turtles on a 3 hour boat ride including 2 stops to snorkel, a full day around the island on a boat including 3 stops, one of which was the shipwreck and the water park again all for €55. All had free transport from right outside the hotel!
If your looking to travel around the island the hotel is in a great location for plenty of places to rent a quad or moped. We paid €25 for a quad for 24hours and went up to Tsivili and zakynthos town.
From our time, we heard much from reps etc out there about other hotels in the area and they all said that gioie di mare was the best.
I would happily return to this hotel and gladly recommend it to all. You will not get better service anywhere else.
Missing it already, vicki and Sara.
