excellent hotel really good for 3* I'm used to staying 4* but this was no different really. clean rooms/pool etc and friendly staff. all inclusive options are great with good range of drinks and snacks round the clock. Food was also very good with something for all tastes and lots of it! 2 minute walk to a golden sandy beach and clear waters and 5 mins from resort strip - Kalmaki is quiet quiet but by no means deserted. also thre si a bus every hour or so to Zakinthos town where there is mroe shopping to be had.

n.b. kalamaki is a national marine park and there volunteers to help protect the turtle's nesting grounds you need to walk close to the sea and the beach is closed at night - also if you want to see the turtles you'll need to take a glass bottom boat they're not just swimming about in the bay.

Room Tip: we had a corner room which was a bit small, fine for us as we only really showered and slept in it h...

We are just coming to the end of a two week holiday at the golden sun. We have had a very enjoyable time and met some great people (sue and john). The standards in this hotel are extremely high it is always spotlessly clean the food is good. The strength of this hotel is its staff who are genuie friendly and will do whatever it takes to make you happy. Special mention for george and tassos in the bar who are two great characters who always have time for you and go out of their way to make you happy

Me and my husband stayed here at the end of May and what a welcoming and friendly hotel. The bar staff were great and even did a chip buttie !! Our room was very clean and modern and its the first time we have had a double bed in Greece and a tv .

Room Tip: e-mail before you go and ask for a double bed you will not be disappointed.

Just back from a weeks all inclusive with Cosmos (Not the best tour operator jet 2 much better)
Its a good well managed hotel with a high standard of customer care and is spotlessly clean. The staff are both polite and friendly The pool and main bar are well staffed The resteraunt is a little crowded and the food is good The cooking station is a nice feature. and serves some individual dishes. The rooms are of a good size and furnished to a very good standard. The gardens are tidy and well stocked. What lets it down is the entertainment. The 2 resident entertainers are terrible they cannt sing and one, the serbian has less personality than a dead fish in truth they make Jedward look good. That said the hotel is good value for money and a safe bet for a holiday but avoid Cosmos there customer service is poor Although its near the airport the activity was not a problem and there are no night flights--Take a boat trip to Kerri Caves and Turtle Island spectacular

Room Tip: Pool rooms are nice

I have to say this is the nicest hotel I've been too, my room was small but I only slept in there and the four poster single bed was a firm mattress but comfy. Had an extra blanket if needed, yes I felt out the way, but it was close to get to the pool. There was clean towels every other day which I thought was great as I don't change my towels at home everyday.

The people that work here are extremely lovely, always welcoming.

George you are officially my favourite barman (Marie) every time I turned away my glass would be filled, very easy to talk to and always started my night off well before I hopped into a taxi and onto laganna, which if you like a dance is the place to go.

I'm going to do my best to come back this year,
