Having opened in May 2016, just in time for Greece’s splendid summer, Zante Maris Suites is the latest offering from Xenos – the largest hotel group on the Greek island of Zakynthos (or Zante). With just 13 well-designed suites, this stylish resort offers an exquisite boutique experience, with every luxury room amenity imaginable and a highly personalised service.
Guests of Zante Maris Suites are afforded easy access to the amenities of the nearby sister property Zante Maris Hotel, along with the many restaurants and shops in Tsilivi, which is just 200 metres away. The property’s gorgeous hilltop location, in an olive grove, affords it lovely views of the Ionian Sea, and each suite is a mesmerising and modern haven of tranquillity.
How to Get There
This hotel is very new. It is contemporary and sleek. The thing that makes it so comfortable is the friendliness of all the staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are open plan and very comfortable.( Ground floor rooms have their own pool!)
Breakfast is plentiful, fresh and delicious.
The lunch menu is light and tasty.
The dinner buffet is again plentiful, varied , fresh and delicious, with a wonderful dessert selection.
The main swimming pool is clean and has sun beds and double mattresses for Chillaxing and sun bathing, But was never crowded. All in all our week was very relaxed and delightful.
My husband and I had such a lovely stay at the Zante Maris Suites. The staff were so friendly, especially the barman Dimitri and other members of staff who we though were great were Evdlokia, Maria, Andreas and Gallina in the restaurant. Thank you all for making our stay so wonderful. The room we had had its own pool - fantastic! We will be coming back. We hired a jeep for a couple of days and took a boat trip which was arranged by the reception staff.
Our experience overall at this hotel was disappointing and we will not go back. We felt that it fell far short of the five star luxury we were promised.
Let's start off with the good points first. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The quality of food and drinks was excellent.
The hotel is up a very steep hill from the village and that was a difficult climb in the hot weather. The hotel itself is built on the hill also. If you had any mobility problems, you would struggle.
The suite was a single room with no separate bathroom. The shower was partitioned off the room by a semi transparent screen and the water flooded out into the room. The toilet was in a small concrete cubicle off the bedroom and there was a smell of sewage coming up the drain which frequently permeated the bedroom. We had to complain several times about this. The ventilation fan in the toilet and shower didn't work. The wash hand basins were in the room which wasn't to our taste as we would have preferred a separate bathroom. If you weren't travelling as a couple, you would have had no privacy.
The bath towels were small and tired looking and only supplied once per day (one each) They were replaced if requested but there was no evening housekeeping service so we had to continually ask for fresh towels The housekeeping service was carried out by a single person most days and was not particularly thorough with glasses and cups being left unwashed most of the time.
Maintenance was patchy at best.
