Dias Studios & Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This was our first visit to Dias but will not be the last. From arriving to leaving Labros and staff were wonderful. The rooms are large all with a pool view and were spotless with the cleaners coming in everyday. The Dias Restaurant is the best restaurant ever. We will be back loved every minute.

Thank you Debra and i am glad that you enjoyed your first experience as a guest of Dias! I think that a clean and spotless place is of paramount importance and thats why my cleaners even though acording to my contract should visit the rooms twice a week they will come everyday, clean the room, tide the beds, do any few dishes that might been used and make sure in general that you enjoy a care free holiday!

1st stay of 2014 at Dias and some very nice improvements to it. As ever a very warm welcome from Skerdi and Labros (wouldn't expect anything less!). The bar has been overhauled and looks excellent where cocktails are a must. The pool area has had a refurb with new flooring all around where you sunbathe and the outside eating area has a pagoda with cover over it to allow you to sit and eat breakfast/snacks without getting too hot. I can't recommend the place enough which is why we go back year after year.

Room Tip: Book private and get a top floor room with even better views

We staid at the Dias hotel and restraunt in Kalamaki in June 2014 we had a very warm welcome and the service was great. The hotel was only 5 to 10 minutes from the airport which was really great. The restraunt food was excellant and all the Veg was home grown on their own farm. As everything was freshly cooked they accommodated for anything that you couldn't have and replaced it with anything you wanted. Labros the owner and Land Cani and Skerdi we're very good hosts, we had a great time with them. We eat at the restraunt 5 nighrts out of the 7 nights that we were there as the food was great. The home grown rose was also very good. We would definitely go back there again as we met some wonderful friends, thankyou to all the staff at the Dias hotel and restraunt we had a fabulous holiday. The friendliest and most welcoming hotel we have been too.

Room Tip: Any room would be ok as they were of a very good standard

Thank you very much for your kind words! The last ten years we try to produce in our farm as much as we can, its a hard work carried out by my parents but the result is vegetables, fruits, extra virgin olive oil and honey of great quallity that my family and my guests can enjoy!

Just had the best holiday of my life, have visited Zante over a dozen times and you would think it would get boring but with thanks to labros at Dias we found new things to do. The apartment was lovely and so clean, great shower & loved the view from our balcony. The pool area is new for this season and looks great with even more sun loungers than before. The bar is great and the staff kept us highly amused. I would recommend to anyone to stay here and eat here. I had 14 full English breakfasts and loved everyone of them, also ate in the restaurant every night. Can't wait to go back in August.

Room Tip: The higher floors have better views

Just back, from 2 weeks stay at Hotel Dias, Kalamaki, Zante. If you want clean, friendly Hotel, that serves the best food ever, then this is the place for you, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by Labros and his wonderful staff, the rooms were spotless, roomy, and cleaned every day.

The pool was just the right size, always spotlessly clean, plenty of sun beds and parasols.
even so, some people still thought it clever to put there towels out at 6 am LOL.

The resort is only 10 mins from airport so there is some plane noise, but not over intrusive. the beach a 5 min walk and is was spotless, no noisy bars, (go to Laginas if you want this), and if you are very lucky you may catch a glimpse of the Turtles popping up there heads.

Back to the hotel, we eat there every night, as the food was superb, plenty of choice and always made fresh as they grow there own.

We can`t wait to go back, highly recormended

Room Tip: We had top floor as great view of the sea

We have just returned from our two week holiday to Kalamaki and, whilst we were unable to book into the Dias and had to stay at the Venus instead, we spent a lot of our time with Labros and his family. It is 8 years since we last stayed at the Dias and when we went into the restaurant on our second night the recognition from Labros, Joanna and Agiras (Labros mum and dad) was instantaneous. We were greeted as old friends, which was lovely - thank you all. Having had a look around Kalamaki and found there were just a few changes (not as many shops which disappointed my husband, Bob, as he is a shopaholic) we decided, as in previous visits, that the Dias was still the best restaurant in town so we ate there 12 out of our 14 night stay, then spent a few hours being entertained by Landi in the Dias Bar. Anyone who has not experienced an evening in his, and Labros, company at night is really missing out as they are the greatest double act in town. Teasing and joking is the order of the day/night with Landi daring customers to try the various competitions he devises. Really great fun and we enjoyed every single minute of his company. As regards the restaurant, Labros makes a point of visiting every table to welcome the guests and runs it with the utmost efficiency. The waiters are all lovely and friendly with always a welcoming smile ensuring your evening starts with you feeling comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and the food, cooked by master chef Agiras is literally to die for. Unfortunately, I can only eat small amounts at a time and Agiras was an angel for catering for my dietary needs making sure I had wonderfully tasty meals at all times, bless him and thank you.
Not having stayed at the Dias I can only tell you that everyone we spoke to who were staying there confirmed that the excellently high standards we remember from so long ago are still maintained. Not that I am surprised as Joanna always ensured the accomodation was spotless and comfortable. Would I recommend this place - OH YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!!
Bless you all and lets hope it will not be another 8 years before we return.
