We stayed at the Filoxenia for 2 weeks from 26th June 2014 in room 203, fondly nicknamed 'the dog room'! On arrival the receptionist was friendly and informative and we had a nice welcome drink provided. The room was quirky but huge and absolutely spotless. We didn't like our wet room bathroom because it made the floor quite dangerous for our toddler but the housekeeper had no problem with giving us extra bathmats to cover the floor. Clean linen each day. The food blew us away. Top quality, fresh and great selections, but if you only like british food you will struggle. The staff had no problems catering for our son however who was presented with chicken nuggets or fish fingers each night! The pool bar was great, huge spirit measures ensured we really did feel the effects of all inclusive! The pools are spotless and the baby pool was perfect for our 3 year old to splash around in with his friends! The staff are what make this hotel excellent. They are friendly, interested in their guests and bloody hardworking! The entertainment (animation) team did their best and we really enjoyed ourselves both in the day time and at night. Please dont expect big shows; it is in house and you must be prepared to take part. Karaoke, quizzes, and more. The kids loved the mini disco. The hotel is about 15 mins from the airport and a short walk into Tsilivi. If you have younger children I'd advise taking a buggy though as the walk seems longer when the ttemperature is over 30 degrees! We got taxis a few times at only 5 euros a pop. The hotel mini bus will also drop you to the beach or to town at regular intervals. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at this hotel and it had a really lovely family feel. A quick note about the air conditioning; it's worth paying the extra and works ccontinuously if you leave the left hand patio door closed! We will definitely be back to explore a bit more of zante. Thank you Filoxenia team!
