Can't believe the review below "Noisey, Noisey, Noisey". What a load of utter rubbish.

We have been to the Zante Star for the last two weeks and it is our fourth visit in four years. We wouldn't come back if it wasn't the best - and it is!

Our daughter and son-in-law recommended the Zante Star to us after they had been a few times and everyone they, and we, have sent here want to come back.

It is a family run hotel, run by a family who go out of their way to ensure that all of their guess enjoy their stay.

They make you welcome and your stay thoughly enjoyable whatever your tastes. They provide a wide selection of food, music and entertainment, all of which is excellent, and provided without detriment to those who choose not to participate.

I would fully recommend a stay at the Zante Star and guarantee that you will enjoy it, and want to come back.

As the "Duttons" said, maybe SCOVEL, and people like them, deciding not to come back will be the best for everyone, and protect this slice of heaven for those who appreciate it.

See you next year if you visit in June.

Just had to put this review on here after reading the very negative comment made about the Zante Star!!! we will be returning for our 3rd visit on 27th June 2010 ,I will also be returning on the 26th Sept 2010 with my mum, that should say it all!!! this is the most quietest hotel I have stayed in, was made to feel welcome the minute we stepped into the star 3 years ago, the staff are so friendly and helpful and bend of backwards to make your stay enjoyable and would sort out any problems(if you had any) straight away, the rooms are spotless, the food is great, and noise?? what noise I am a very light sleeper and was never kept awake by noise, the hotel is in a great location with beautiful views, we have made many firends at the star over the years and everyone we speak to have returned many times, can only say that the couple who wrote the bad reviews stayed some where else, Irini heard you are doing a great job your dad would be very very proud of!! keep up the good work and see you soon.

I cannot believe the negative review for this hotel - it is a load of rubbish - so much so, it makes me think they must have stayed somewhere else!
We returned yesterday from two weeks at the Zante Star and it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We will definitely be returning next year. I would like to reassure people that this hotel is not a noisy hotel at all - far from it - it is the quietest hotel i've ever stayed in. There is music played in the hotel bar, but it certainly isn't loud and the double glazed doors are closed at night so as not to disturb those who have gone to bed. Our room was overlooking the bar area, and we heard no noise, even in the day, when the bar doors were open! A big thank you to Irini, Helena, Zoe, Tula and Irina (and Mikki) for the best holiday ever - we can't wait to return - Kerina & Andy (06/06/10 to 20/06/10)

I feel compelled to add a review after reading the derogatory review below, a review which is totally without foundation and blatantly untrue!

We have two children, my daughter is 14 and my son is 12. We have been visiting the Zante Star for the past 6 years and have become 'hooked' like so many others with the magic of the Zante Star. Every year we meet more and more people who come back time and again because lets face it, when you have found the best, why go anywhere else?

The below review commented 'The rooms were spotless, maid cleaned every day, beds and towels changed twice a week, food was fine' - it sounds terrible!!!!!!!!!!

The Zante Star Staff can not do enough for you, whatever age you may be to make sure your stay is enjoyable and that you take away with you a real feeling of Greece and Greek culture. Take the Greek night - a 'must do' evening with fantastic entertainment where you can dance Greek style and enjoy watching (disabled or not) Professional Greek Dancers show you things you did not know possible! Obviously the odd couple mentioned did not attend the evening and prefered an early night - their loss, and there was me thinking you went away to sample different cultures and ways of life and to enjoy yourself, life is stressful enough at home and work!

As for music blaring out? The Zante Star make the effort to play some relaxing background music during the day in the bar which was so loud I often snoozed by the pool during the day!!!!!! To hear it properly I would have had to enter the bar!!! And I can honestly say that in the 6 years of visiting we have NEVER heard the music once we have returned to our room. But for those who WANT to pick fault, they will find fault.

The baby noises??? I feel the gentleman writing the below review is trying hard to think of things to complain about and I suspect that this is not the first time he has complained!! There is obviously more to the story than meets the eye as mentioned in the review immediately below this one!!!!! What exactly WAS he doing??? Sour Grapes maybe??

If you DO want a relaxing holiday, to sample Greece and see the beautiful island of Zante, you will not find a better place to stay than the Zante Star in Tsilivi. However I must warn you, do not be surprised if you make many more trips to the Zante Star!!!!

The rooms were spotless, maid cleaned every day, beds and towels changed twice a week, food was fine, eat once, but this was the worst holiday I have ever had. The brochure said "a chance for a relaxing holiday", no choice was what we got, we had a few problems the second night, which was not the hotels fault. But the problems started before that. The first night we heard a baby crying during the day and night, every two hours for feeds, it was two days before I knew that his mother was one of the owners . We were allocated the first room next to reception, No 111, the mother, baby and toddler slept in the room behind reception which backed on to our room, we had eleven days of this nonstop crying, and screaming from the toddler when she was taken out of reception. it was only when I saw the rep two days before departure and told her about the crying, that the children were taken downstairs at night but was brought back during the day, I am disable and was not able to go out every day, so could not escape the constant crying.
The night life was more like a 18 to 30s holiday, music blarring out from 8.50am until 2am most nites, never before1.30am. Greek nights are worse, owners family and friend came and the music level was even WORSE. If I'd known that I could have got a flight home, {only saw travel agents 2 days before departure date}, I would happily have come back to the rain!!!!!!! WAS VERY HAPPY TO CHECK OUT, I FEEL AS THOUGH I'VE PAID TO BE TIRED AND UNREFRESHED.
