Zante Star
Ranked #1 of 51 Hotels in Tsilivi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2013

The hotel is clean and well looked after, the staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel dog is adorable and cuddly however I found that the beds were somewhat uncomfortable and actually caused my neck to strain which meant spending most of the next day with an ice pack pressed to my neck, entertainment is fun and family friendly however the noise levels were over the top for anyone trying to sleep and seeing as the Greek night and games night go well into the early hours of the next day we found it to be a bit annoying. Reception offers free WiFi whoever this was temperamental at best for me and many other guests trying to connect. Within the rooms the kitchen area is useful for cooking in, all utensils were provided except for washing up liquid and sponge but this can be purchased from the supermarket (which is a 5 minute walk down the road) for 2 euros. Automatic bug repellents are provided in the rooms which is helpful however there is only one per room and you may require an additional, fans were available at a reasonable price from reception and worked well to ventilate the room. There is a fly screen on the balcony door which allows the doors to be left open for air however we found noise to be an issue with a confused rooster insisting on waking us up before sunrise. Over all I thought that our stay was lovely, while there are some minor imperfections the zante star is a great hotel and I would recommend it to others.

We decided to book a last minute to Zante and selected Zante Star as it was one of the recommended hotels and had positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I was a little apprehensive about the number of ‘glowing’ reports, but can confirm they are correct! We haven’t been to Greece for a number of years and were expecting basic accommodation but were really impressed by the quality of the hotel and accommodation. As stated by a number of reviewers the rooms and public areas are absolutely spotless and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful.
Our room was not in the main building but ‘underneath’ the swimming pool area and facing the road - it consisted of a separate bedroom (with a double bed), kitchenette area with a sofa bed and a bathroom with a full size bath (shower over bath). We had no neighbours and for us, the great feature was the balcony running the full length of the apartment – probably around 50 foot long, which meant we could sit and enjoy the balcony of an evening.
There were plenty of sun loungers available as well as an umbrella over every two sunbeds.
We ate in the hotel several lunchtimes are were impressed with the food – the souvlaki in particular, which was better than we had eaten in a restaurant one evening,. The food was well presented and excellent value. The portions sizes are huge!
The hotel is slightly outside of the main resort – about a 10-15 minute leisurely walk which we enjoyed. There is a small supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away.
As highlighted in several reviews, there is a charge for air conditioning (50 euro for one week plus a 10 euro refundable deposit) and for the use of the safe (12 euro per week) and whilst these are extra costs that can be frustrating, the website did make it clear there was an additional charge and seems to be the usual practice in Greece.
If returning to Tsvilli we would absolutely look to return to Zante Star – we simply could not fault it 

We visited the Zante Star in June, yes we are repeat customers, and the reason for that is...there is not another hotel like it, friendly, clean, beautiful lounge, beautiful pool, beautiful rooms, perfect location...yes a short 10 minute stroll, but away from hustle of town. Our first visit in 2005, our rep said "the best hotel...if not in the whole of Zante, certainly in Tsilivi" and how right he was!!!!! More recently we tried to book late and could not get in Star, when we arrived at this other hotel, I said to this new rep "we normally stay at the Star" and she said "thats my favorite, all our favorites" Well, perhaps enough said, I want to be able to get in next year, thanis to Erini, Helen, Toula, Irina, Vicci, all staff and lovely Anna XxX

This is our 4th year at the best hotel IN THE WORLD! I kid you not. This year we took our parents with us who were equally blown away by the standard of the Zante Star as we always are. In fact they too said it was the best holiday they'd ever had. The rooms are spotless and amazingly well equipped with beautiful views from your balcony. A gorgeous pool with more than enough sun loungers, a fabulous bar serving great food (the Zante Star Special Pizza being one of our favourites), drinks and ice creams galore. Free wifi, great entertainment, wonderful staff - I could go on but the list is endless. A SHORT walk into town that takes 10 to 15 minutes and you have a great selection of tavernas and bars. And it's a SHORT easy walk back to the hotel. Or you can use one of the many taxis or horse carriage rides if you prefer. The transfer from the airport has been €25 ever since we first went to Tsilivi 7 years ago and it is still only €25 euros. Whereas our taxi in the uk to the airport goes up every year. I think I prefer the Greek way with no inflation. We cannot wait to return to the Zante Star next year, and the year after, and every single year for as long as we can. It is home from home and Irini, Helena, Toula, Irina and all the staff at this hotel make you feel so welcome, you simply cannot make it any better. It is perfect as it is. Well done girls for running and outstanding hotel that is deservedly number 1 in the whole resort. If you are considering a stay at the Zante Star, please don't think twice - book it now and I promise you will not be disappointed. Thanks for reading my review and I hope you find it informative and helpful. Kerina and Andy
