Reviewed 13 July 2014

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!

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks from 16 June to 30 June 2014 and we both agree that we are definitely coming back to stay here at the Filoxenia . Check in was swift and we were given a welcome drink straightaway. Our room was 112 a ground floor one round by the other pool , we liked it there it was a nice cool room with two queen size beds . The room was cleaned everyday by the lovely cleaners we couldn't fault it . ALL the staff work very hard and always have time to chat or a friendly smile , nothing was too much for any of them . The food was varied and we both enjoyed what was on offer, we feel it was very good quality and well prepared . We didn't feel that the drinks were watered down at all as can usually be the case in other all inclusive hotels . There is a remark on here about a boy getting his earrings stolen by a magician/ fire show act that came to perform one night , we were there then and the mother did genuinely believe this was so , but actually a few days later the boys earrings were found on different days one in the pool and one squashed into floor by the toilets so all was sorted . My only complaint would be the price of the safe , we paid €35 for two weeks , I think that's quite a lot considering it doesn't really cost anything to use , you could also pay for extra time with the air conditioning , but as our room was quite cool we didn't bother with that . It's the first hotel in tsilivi so there is a little 15 min walk into the main part , the hotel puts on a bus in the day tho so it's worth using that . We used to walk into the main part at night and get a taxi back for €5 or horse and cart for €10 , we also had a taxi into zante town a few times for around €10 each way , and you are dropped of into the center where as the local bus drops you out the way a bit . Overall this hotel is exceptional ! One of the best I've stayed in so if you are looking to stay here just book it ! You won't be disappointed x

Hello debjane19!

Thank you so much for taking the time to add your review on Filoxenia hotel and for choosing to spend your summer holidays with us. It is a big pleasure for us to have guests like you in our home with such positive energy.

First of all, on behalf of all the staff and family I would like to say a big thank you for your kind comments on our hotel and staff and for giving us a credit on the way we took care of you. Your rewarding feedback means a lot to us and we appreciate it so much..

We would also like to thank you for giving us your information about the boy’s lost ear rings as until now we were not aware that finally the ear rings were found and we were not updated from the earrings’ owners.

With regards to the safe boxes we would just like to inform you that this facility comes with a fixed rent price throughout the years as it is not included in the rooms price. We are very sorry that you found the price expensive but we can assure you that comparing to other all inclusive hotels in the area, our rate is considered to be very reasonable.

Well, that was just a small note on behalf from all the staff and the family to show our appreciation and to tell you that it will be a big pleasure for us if we had the chance to see you back again in our home in the near future.

Please know that our people will be right here on the spot to welcome you back with a smile from the heart. Until then, take care back home and have a lovely winter. Sending love from all..xx

We have just returned home from having a weeks holiday at the FIloxenia hotel. We had an amazing holiday thanks to all the lovely staff. All the staff are attentitive to their guests needs and try their absolute hardest to meet these. We were overwhelmed by everyone's kindness.
The hotel is clean and well presented. Our room was amazing, so comfortable. We found the beds to be very comfortable and had exceptional good nights sleep.
The food was amazing and we never got bored of this.
Thank you FIloxenia for an amazing holiday, hopefully we will return again soon.

Just spent 11 nights at this hotel and had a fantastic stay. This is one of the best hotels we have been to. The rooms are huge and kept spotlessly clean by the maids who came in everyday, and everywhere else round the hotel was kept very clean. The food in the restaurant was very good with something for everyone. All the staff from the maids through to the entertainment team were excellent, very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. A special mention also to the reception staff who were always helpful and dealt with any problems or queries we had with a special mention to Agatha who always had a warm and welcoming smile.

Where do I start? Lets start off with the staff. They are wonderful, they cannot do enough for you. The hotel is so clean. The animation team, Oscar and Biannca are great. The bar staff, unbelievable! The room I had, 214, was very large, 2 queen size beds. A little on the hard side but I am splitting hairs there.
The location I thought was fantastic also. A 10 min walk takes you to the start of the town of Tsilivi and the beach. I never got bored of the walk but the hotel lays on a daily shuttle service by mini bus to the beach.
The food was excellent. As a vegetarian myself, I often dread All Inclusive as its usually salad and nothing else. Here there were multiple vegetarian dishes and they were all fantastic. If you want burgers and chips at every meal you may be a tad disappointed.
I will be returning in August 2015 for another 10 night stay and I cannot wait.
