My 10 year old daughter and i have just got back after a lovely week at Zante Star. The standard of accommodation is good and everywhere is spotlessly clean. The staff are wonderful and will go out of their way to help. The pool area is perfect for families and my daughter made so many friends that she cried when we left.The Greek night was great and a really good way to get to know people. Games night was also great fun and I won 60 euros playing Bingo! The town is a bit of a stroll away but has some lovely restaurants. Enjoyed a horse and carriage ride back to hotel one evening. All in all something for everyone. A most relaxing week.

Room Tip: Rooms with an inland view are quieter. We were on the ground floor with a good sized terrace and vie...

Just returned from our 5th year at the Zante Star and will be returning again next year. The minute we arrive at the hotel we are made to feel welcome, its almost like going home. Erini, Helen, Anna & Tula are fabulous and go out of their way to ensure you have a perfect stay. Everywhere is spotless thanks to the wonderful maids and nothing is ever too much trouble. The food served at the hotel is always well received by all of us and plates are always emptied. Happy hour every night, need i say more!! Would recommend this hotel to all ages. Very friendly atmosphere. FANTASTIC!!!!!

We chose this hotel from the reviews and we were not disappointed. My partner and I took two 16 year old girls and a 12 year old boy. We ALL loved staying here. I think my favourite thing was being able to eat breakfast on the balcony. We had a fantastic inland view and I loved the sound of the hens (certainly not too loud). I never heard dogs barking. We paid for the air-conditioning (approx £60 for 2 rooms) and were very grateful that we had done so, it was a blessing on the hot nights. We stayed in rooms 127 and 125 and never experienced any problems with the air-conditioning.

The food at the hotel was good and enough variation for the 5 of us. Due to the un-expected, hotter than normal temperatures, we decided to stay at the hotel for evening meal on a couple of occasions rather than walk into the village. On a couple of occasions we decided to take a horse and cart from the village back to the hotel at a reasonable price. The kids loved it :) The Greek night was great fun too.

We found the walk to the beach ok and enjoyed coming back to the hotel in the late afternoon to spend time in the pool.

Overall, we all had an excellent time at this hotel.

ps sorry most of my pictures have people on them...I tried to find some without but couldn't :)

Room Tip: You'll not be disappointed with top floor inland view

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at Zante star. As a young couple we were a bit concerned upon arrival about the amount of families that were on our transfer and at staying at the hotel, however after visiting Laganas we quickly realised that we'd chosen the right area and hotel. Although the rooms seemed fairly basic the staff and hotel made up for this. The cleanliness of the hotel could not be faulted, the staff were so friendly and the food available was good, alot better than we had expected. Tsilivi is a lovely town, smaller than we thought but as the island is so small it was easy to get taxis to other areas of Zante and the staff at the Zante Star were happy to book taxis etc. The hotel is a 15minute walk from the beach, shops and resturants so it's perfect location, ideal for families with younger or older children or for couples that are looking for a relaxing holiday.

The hotel deserves good reviews and the negatives comments both. Remember guests have different outlook on holidays and also compare with previous hotels. The staff are the stars of this hotel. They run a very tight ship and it reflects on the athmosphere of the hotel. It is very clean in all areas. I do admit being a bit disappointed when first shown into the room as you enter into the kitchen/lounge area as to how very dark it was and sad that it had no natural light at all hence needing lights on at all time during the day this was also the case in the bathroom. This was balanced out by the light airy bedroom as we has asked for a high flloor which overlooked the back of the hoteland was pleasant. We were also in room 129 as the previous review and did mention the faulty aircon box from room127 on the guest suggestion form as it was noisy.
To be honest if traveling with children bear in mind the dark lounge area which was untouched by any air conditioning and very hot although is very clean.
Unfortunaley the greek night was cancelled due to lack of guests paying which was a huge disapointment.
The hotel is a good 10 min walk into town but we prefered this than being on top of a bar. The beach also 10 min stroll and very pleasant. Nice restraunts all gasping for your custom. Balcony beautiful setting up on the clifftop.
There seems to be some repeat guests who take offence to people posting negative reviews. I agree with a couple of these reviews but appreciate how hard the staff work to maintain standards. The problem is not all guests are lucky enough to obtain those rooms with the views to die for. Our view was lovely but not so for the ground floor. All in all a good hotel for couples not wanting to use the kitchen or loung area.

Am with you there Turnip... We would go here on every holiday if the world wasn't quite so large. We have hired cars and quads while staying here to visit other places on the island, not to go on the 10 minute walk into town or the 20 minute walk further up the hill. Heading back to the hotel after these visits we always feel like we are going home. The balconies are separated by wrought iron fence type things and as the guests in the hotel were nice too,and we are sociable people, it was nice to be able to have a chat at the beginning and end of the day if that's what we fancied doing. I am not convinced that a full divider would stop the smell of "woodbines" either. Fab hotel, with fab staff that seems to rub off onto the guests. You couldn't cook a 3 course meal in the room but to be fair who wants to when there are excellent eateries within 10 mins of the hotel?!

Been going to the Zante star for 10 years now and it's THE best hotel on the island, could not think of anywhere better to stay! Friendly staff, wonderful food, clean and just the best place EVER! Any bad reviews are just a waste of time to read and absolute rubbish, the hotel is suited for all people and never had a bad experience not once.
