“Couldn't ask for more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Arrived 23rd May 2014 for a week's break with the family (7 adults, one child). Upon arrival, lovely receptionist checked us in quickly and we were escorted to our rooms by Rufus, the dog. Rooms were spacious, we were on the second floor but the stairs weren't too bad.

Plenty of loungers by the pool, we managed to get the day bed which was great given the amount of people we had! Pool gradually slopes from around 3 feet deep to 6 feet deep, and the kids pool was great for the baby.

Maggi and Lola at the pool bar are wonderful, it is well stocked, pretty cheap and the food is really tasty - try an Iced Chocolate in the late afternoons. Food there is lovely, they have both a buffet for breakfast and dinner, as well as a menu which you can order on until late.

Hotel bar was great, we had Ionian Ian's Kareoke on the last night which was great fun; the bar staff are friendly and the drinks pretty cheap. Sofas and chairs are comfy, and managed to watch the Champions League final in there whilst enjoying a beer or two.

The only downside of the hotel is the fact it is in Kalamaki - what a dump! Feral dogs running round, hardly any pavements, no decent lighting, and a lack of facilities. There are some good restaurants on there however. Had the hotel been anywhere else, I would go back year after year.

Room Tip: Ask for block C or D - closest to the beach, and furthest from the noisy hotel next door.

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Amaryllis (May 2014) which we thoroughly enjoyed. The apartments are spacious and spotlessly clean. The gardens are well kept and you can always get a sun bed around the pool at any time of the day. Food is available and very tasty! All the staff are very friendly and efficient. Can't wait to return.

Just wanted to say that although on our last trip to zante we didn't get to stay at this hotel, holiday booked by some one else, we popped into see the owners Stados and Maria on our last night, Instantly recognised and a very friendly greek welcome, love this hotel, youd be mad to miss the opportunity not to stay here, The hotel caters for everyone and once you have been you will return. One big happy family run hotel, see you soon
