We stayed at these apartments for 7 nights 23-30 August 2012 and from the moment we pulled up in the car we knew we had made the right choice. The apartments and grounds look beautiful and everything looks well maintained and clean. We had hired a car and were pleased to find a large car park area to the rear of the buildings that was free to use. After an easy check-in with Mary and her husband we were helped to our 1 bedroom apartment - Room 3.
Once again the level of cleanliness in our apartment was very high and it featured 2 balconies one of which had a sea view. The apartment had the usual self-catering facilities but also included free air-con and free Wi-Fi. The free Wi-Fi throughout the complex was really enjoyed by our 16 & 19 yr old teenagers who constantly used it on their Blackberrys and IPhones to report all their experiences on the usual social networks.
The complex included a swimming pool and a small baby pool with a bar an eating area. We enjoyed the fact that the pool and sun loungers were never over-crowded and we were always able to get 4 loungers together no matter the time of day. The whole atmosphere is very family orientated with a good mix of nationalities that only adds to the holiday experience.
Every day we had breakfast and we were normally served by Mary’s daughter Elena who was always friendly and very helpful. We had a large selection of choice for the included breakfast that was prepared to a high standard. The variety offered meant breakfast never became stale and it even satisfied my 16 yr old and myself who have been known to be very picky about the food we eat.
The apartments are a 5 minute walk to the main strip in Argassi and the first beach. Although we would recommend checking out some of the more spectacular beaches that Zakynthos has to offer. The hired car really paid for itself as it allowed us to travel throughout the island and find many hidden gems that we would not have visited otherwise.
On a final note I have to mention the exceptional hospitality of the family and the cleaning staff who always had a smile on their face and a kind word to say. It truly made our stay memorable as they all came across as very genuine people. I have to personally give a BIG THANK YOU to Elena who went above and beyond on our final day to make sure I was able to fly home. I left my passport at the hotel and was not aware until checking in at the airport. I was told by the airport staff that I had 15 minutes to get my passport otherwise I could not fly today. I frantic call to the Edelweiss to ask if they would put my passport in a taxi and without any hesitation Mary said they would bring it. You cannot imagine my relief when 10 minutes later Elena appeared like an Angel or Greek Goddess with my passport. A truly exceptional service, especially as Elena refused any payment and was just happy to help me out of a jam.
The whole family enjoyed our stay at the Edelweiss and I would not hesitate to recommend their apartments to my most discerning friends. If you choose the Edelweiss you will not be disappointed until the day you leave.
