We stayed in September 2010, (not 2011) but i can't back date it further...

The hotel was of a high standard and was for sure one of the best in the Kalamaki area. The staff was very helpful throughout, from the reception and pool guy, to the cleaners and cooks. Everyone always kindly greated us as we walked through the hotel areas. The location of the hotel was great , once out of the hotel, it was a small walk to the right that would take you to the beach, and on the way there were many stalls and resturants to shorten the journey down.

Food was very good in the hotel. We chose half board and weren't dissapointed with the choice of food that was always satisfactory, even for my partner, who is the fussiest eater i have ever met!

One bad tiny point....i always seemed to have dusty feet in the room...so it might be the cleanliness thats lacking a tiny bit...but this was year and a half ago...so im sure the dust has soon but dissapeared!!

All in all, great Value for the Price. Enjoy

My Husband and I have been to Zante 3 times now & this is BY FAR the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
Our third visit to Zante was August 2011 (this time at the Meandros). I booked direct with the hotel and this was a very important holiday to us as we were getting married on Agios Sostis on 12 August (that's a little island off Laganas).We stayed at the Meandros from 7 Aug - 14 Aug. I would highly recommend booking direct as Katerina at the head office is so on the ball! We had tried to book a number of hotels prior to this (only because we hadnt found it) and in many cases didnt even get a reply but I am so glad we didnt! Katerina was absolutely fantasic and understood how important the holiday was for us. Every little silly question I had Katerina came straight back to me by email it really gave me peace of mind. (There are also other perks for booking direct.)
We spoke a lot to Daniella on reception who became our friend and we still email each other to this day. She came to see me when I was having my hair done for the wedding to wish me good luck! She has an absolute wealth of knowledge for Zante island and is a real credit to the Meandros. We have a 2 year old and 5 year old and the staff were so accommodating.
We stayed half board and couldnt fault the breakfast nor the evening meal. There was so much choice and to be fair, we are quite fussy people! I remember Mario in the restaurant but cant quite remember the other guy's name. Both were brilliant, especially with the children.
Our room was a 2 bedroom apartment. Through the front door a spacious toilet with bath & shower was on the left and straight in front was the second bedroom - really big with 2 beds and a dressing table and a balcony! To the right was our room with 2 beds, table & chairs, TV, and kitchenette unit with fridge, sink etc and another balcony! It was all really clean and new.
My parents stayed in a superior double and that it was! Lovely decor, really spacious etc. My in-laws stayed in a twin room & that was equally as spacious. Just look at the hotel's website for all the photos.
Air Conditioning in August was no extra cost and nor was the safety deposit box (this could have been as we booked direct - as I said "perks")
And lastly, I cannot forget to mention Ernie behind the bar - he really is in a job that suits him. On my hen night he made us feel very welcome at the bar! ( BTW although it looks good, I would give the Cave Bar a miss unless you are after a romantic night. We went up with the children and the best thing about it was the jeep ride up there and back again lol!).
On the day of our wedding we came back greeted with Champagne, bowl of fruit and flowers. I cannot fault this hotel and will definately be returning! You will not regret booking with this hotel.

Oooh, just remember if the bar staff tell you to clap when you get in the jacuzzi to make it work its only to let them know to turn it on lol!!!

I'm sorry we havent got any photos but the week was so hectic with wedding preparations - I will get lots next time we stay.

See all you guys at the Meandros soon! Have a good winter.

Hello Gail!

I don't know where to start from. After reading your review i had something like an emotion explode and no words could come out of my mouth. All i can say is that you made not only my day, but of course everyone's day. I just called everyone from Meandros to share your kind words with them and the first thing i heard coming our of their mouth was WoW. Thank you so much for sharing your feelings, memories and gratitude with us. You know, what we do, one could say that it is our job, but we believe that it goes beyond that. Creating relationships, caring, making friends and sharing a smile is not written in any typical job description. This is what we believe is the most important thing. I would personally like to thank you for quoting me in your review ( i feel a little more famous now lol!) What i do is listening and helping our guests anyway i can. I have been on holidays myself several times and i wish i could have a person who would be there to listen to my questions. I guess that you wanted to mention Oltzi at the restaurant. Wonderful smiley boy :) As for Daniela, i just gave her a call on her cell to tell her about you. She was very glad to hear that you contacted us again and she will be in touch with you soon. She is on her olive picking duties at the moment ( great pure oil by the way!)
Well, once i start talking its difficult for me to stop lol. That was just a note to say thank you and to express everyone's appreciation. We all wish you have a great, warm, loving winter surrounded with people you love. Until we meet again remember us and smile :-)) Next time you come along i owe you a night cup at Ernie's bar :) xxxxx

Stayed from 11th to 18th Oct - Warm welcome with drink on arrival. Staff exceptional - warm - friendly - helpful coundn't ask for more. Our room 401 was enormous and cleaned daily including towels changed every day. - Lovely location 5mins from beech and bars etc. Would have liked to have visited a bit earlier in the season as it was a bit quiet at night in the bars but we expected this. The restaurant food was very nice with a fair selection to suit almost everyone. All in all a very nice hotel which I would recommend to anyone - Thank you staff and management of the Meandros for a lovely holiday

Room Tip: We overlooked the pool where the bar was and might be a bit noisy in high season if you are a an ear...

Just finishing our stay at the Meandros - it closes for the season tomorrow, so there are only 12 guests left. Could feel like a ghost town, but the place remains comfortable and welcoming.
We booked a double room, but have been given a 2 bedroomed appartment with kitchen, bathroom and huge balcony - what a bonus. Lots of room to spread out in. The pool is colder than the sea at this time of year, but it is a decent size, sheltered and has plenty of sunbeds.
Food is good. Mainly Greek dishes for dinner. Mixture of continental and English for breakfast. Chef fried fresh eggs for breakfast this morning as we were first for breakfast at 9.15 and they'd been standing for an hour - we wouldn't have known and he could have just left everything as it was. All staff pleasant and helpful.
Kalamaki OK as a resort - lots of empty businesses. Far, far better than Laganas down the road - didn't know Greece had such awful resorts!

Hello winnie44!

Thank you so much for spending some of your valuable time to write your review on Meandros hotel and for adding your kind comments about our staff. Its nice to hear that you found your accommodation comfortable and it makes us really glad that our chef met your taste expectations. We hope that your found Greek food tasteful as most of our guests do. We know that it is no similar to English kitchen but we think that it does worth a try :-). Indeed Kalamaki is a very nice resort having plenty of options. The beach is one of the most well known ones for turtle spotting mostly during the high season as the weather is warmer. I would say an ideal place for families, couples and older people. As far as Laganas is concerned, its a resort for people mostly young at heart i would say. Very cosmopolitan with plenty of night life and lots of activities to do. There is always a place for everyone in Zakynthos and when all these options are on the table its a matter of choice. We hope that we will have the chance to have you again in our island. Zakynthos is a beautiful place, having many gems of mother nature to explore. All it takes its a trip with a boat and a car drive for a day in the mountains. I am sure you will love it if you decide to return. On behalf of all the staff and family, i wish you have a great winter back home. Thank you for going through our response. Have a nice day xxx

Good positioned small hotel 5-6 minutes walk to sea. Rooms: clean, roomy, but to be honest not finished to high standards. Small let down of very hard mattresses and having to pay to use the safe . Food: tasty if sometimes a bit repetitive. Staff: Excellent and always friendly {special thanks to Mario and extra special thanks{spaseeba} to Ernie the barman} . I would class this as a 3 star hotel and I would certainly recommend it. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: room 305 has nice sea view

Hello ivorbinthere!

Thank you very much for taking the time to add your review on Meandros hotel and for mentioning your positive comments on our wonderful staff. After reading your review i saw that you had some mixed feeling about our hotel. I hope that these did not influence your overall holiday experience and you took back home a positive feeling about us. With regards to the bed mattresses we apologize if you did not have the sleep you expected. We always do our best to choose good quality orthopedic mattresses offering a good sleep. They are a bit hard but they are safe for back problems.
As for the safe deposit boxes that come with an extra charge, the reason it happens is because of the nature of our agreement with some of our affiliated Tour Operators. Price competition does not allow tour operators to include extra services in the accommodation rate such as air conditioning or safe boxes.

For that reason this is charged extra, as they are unable to include it in the package rate. Unfortunately it does not come out of our initiative. This is always mentioned in our hotel description in travel brochures and web sites and always available to see before anyone chooses to book in our hotel.

We believe that it would be more convenient if all services were included in your package rate and this is our primary aim as a hotel group when it comes to distribute our accommodation.
Unfortunately, tour operators choose not to include them in the rate and as a result this appears as an extra charge to pay.

It is actually a price competition among tour companies. There are some cases that you will find our accommodation a little more expensive and this is because some other tour operators choose to include all in a package rate. So, it is all a matter of pricing strategy that we are not able to change.
What we choose to do in our web site for example is to include all services in the package rate, plus extra benefits for our guests, including transfer from and to the airport. We believe that a nice package can cover every need of our guests.
As you are an experiences traveler having seen many accommodation during your trips, your suggestions and advice is very valuable for us and is always taken seriously into consideration. Therefore, it will be our pleasure to hear any of your ideas that you think can gives us the chance to improve ourselves. You are more than welcome to share your ideas with us and our door is always open to you whenever you feel ready to share your thoughts.
Thank you very much again for taking the time to go through our response. We all wish you have a great winter back home. Love from all the family and staff at Meandros. xxx
