Returned yesterday from 2 weeks at Zante Star. Booked late with Teletext operator and didnt expect too much at the price paid. Read the reviews just before setting off and were surprised at the positive comments. With only 35 studios personal service is the key. Tula and her two daughters run the property and nothing repeat nothing is too much trouble. After mentioning to Irene (one of the daughters ) my bed was uncomfortable after the first night , within 2 hours they changed the mattress and all was well. The studios are small especially with two twin boys of 7, with 2 occupants they would be fine. The couch which splits into 2 beds is a quality piece of furniture not the normal travelodge cheapy type, but this means you cannot easily revert during daytime to packing the unit back into one couch and seriously reduces the overall floor space available in the living area. Self catering is typical Greek style with just 2 electric hotplates and no Microwave so cooking a meal is very restrictive, we eat out every night and spent a lot of money compared with say Spain or Portugal in similar properties. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the beach and 12/14 minutes walk from the main shops which are very expensive in Tsilivi, not excessive of course but factor in temperatures exceeding 30c until 8.00 pm typically and at 67 I found it tough going some days and welcomed the rented car in our 2nd week. These are the negatives if you call them negatives, however the upside is a quite superbly run boutique property, owners onsite all day every day, staff who only want to please and help you get the very best from your trip from the housekeeping team who clean everyday and provide any amount of fresh towels/linen daily. The whole complex is spotless, the pool superb, food available all day at sensible prices, its quite lovely. Would return again in a heartbeat , the only problem being this property attracts a return clientele approaching 65% plus and getting the weeks you want requires very early booking.
