Hotel Giore Di Mare
Small and well-presented option, right in the heart of the action on the main strip yet backing onto farmland. Minimal bar and snack facilities are on offer but many other choices are available on the street right outside. Half of the rooms have kitchenettes. The pool is well shielded from the noise of the main road. It is used exclusively by the youth programme of a major UK tour operator who will enjoy this hard-to-beat convenience for the nightlife and the beach. The pharmacy on the ground floor at the street could prove handy for these young guests for a variety of reasons! The name sounds more exotic than it actually is! It is in a handy location to take a boat trip from the beach to visit the turtles in the Marine Park. For those interested in shopping and an authentic Greek flavour, Zakynthos Town is the best bet.
Pair of 2-storey buildings, one street side above shops and the other to the rear behind the pool. One is light blue with louvre shutters and balustrade balconies, the other has brick facade sections with metal-fronted balconies Entrance is to the side along a little driveway. All rooms have one or two balconies.
