A little off the beaten track in Kalamaki on Zante (also known as Zakynthos), the Daniel Hotel is wonderful value for a friendly little family-run complex that punches well above weight for both facilities and location.
Zante has really come up in the travel world in the last few years. It’s no surprise when you see what the island has to offer – superb beaches, wonderful interior landscapes in the classic Greek island tradition, and a super laid-back lifestyle. While some of Zante’s resorts have become party towns – Kalamaki’s neighbour Laganas, for example – this little slice of sea-side heaven makes the most of its enormous sandy beach with low-key, low-rise development that is family friendly and a favourite with eco-tourists who love the visiting rare loggerhead turtles.
You’ll enjoy great value at the Daniel Hotel, but priceless attributes like a warm welcome, and a fantastic out-of-town tranquillity are also part of the package. Built in traditional style around a nice little pool complex, the Daniel Hotel’s rooms are clean and in a classic Greek style, with cool tiles and simple furniture. All of the rooms are twins, and each have a balcony or terrace as well as air-conditioning, which helps keep the temperatures in check. En-suite bathrooms, TVs, fridges, and safes are further extras to be found. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the complex.
Kalamaki’s quiet charm is great for explorers or families. Kids and parents will love the safe swimming, and watching the nesting turtles is a magical experience. If you’d like to kick up a bit more of a holiday fuss, you’ll find clubs and bars along the coast in Laganas. For those with a cultural, historical, or retail bent, Zante Town is the place to go.
Kalamaki is the perfect introduction to Greek island holiday making – it’s got all the ingredients – and the Daniel Hotel takes the budget stress out of these wonderful trips without compromising on quality. Book you stay now, with Loveholidays!
