... and enjoying the afternoon. They were doing a lifeboat drill on board and we could see the process from our table. We went back to the ship about 3. I tried for any free wifi but none available. We skipped the fancy dinner, went to the buffet instead and then to the 8pm show. Tonight it was acrobats and magicians. Tomorrow is a sea day followed by Venice. Hopefully, Karen's knee will feel better by ...
... Greece. As this is a popular traffic route we started to see a lot more shipping including some Navy Warships which said they were ‘Supporting Nato activities’... with Syria not so far away it was, at least for me, a reminder that the world is carrying on outside the confines of our guard rails. I took comfort in a mozzarella and tomato toasted sandwich and sat on watch again in the afternoon, thinking about stuff and watching the tiny bright blue ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Zante Maris Hotel Tsilivi
We took the gamble and went '4star allocated on arrival' as we could not decide which 4star to go for on the island.
We stayed at the Zante Maris for 2 weeks half board returning on July 16th. The hotel is in a great position right on the sea but just round he corner from the town of Tsilivi. The hotel is a high standard, spotlessly clean, where else do you get a change of sheets and towels every day. Tea/coffeee facilities in the room updated every day. Beach towels available so no need to carry your own.
We enjoyed meeting the staff, other guests and the evening entertainment. As the hotel is well placed you can visit all the activities available in the town, trmendous choice of good quality restaurants if you are bed and breakfast.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quality break in lovely surroundings
Diane & Dave - Excellent Hotel & Location
Spent one week here with my boyfriend but wish it was two. The hotel was amazing, right on the golden sandy beach. The best hotel in Tsilivi. We had slippers and dressing gowns plus a bottle of water in our mini bar when we arrived which was a real touch. The rooms were cleaned every day and clean towels provided. The staff are very friendly, especially the bar men - Sambuca!! We would definitely recommend it and return again. This is a 5 Star hotel in our eyes xx
Great zante maris hotel
what a hotel three years old and looks like it was just built. staff very good and the place was spotless and the rooms done every day.air con is a must as it was 47 in the shade but the rooms nice and cool. good sing song and the food was good.i would go back in the morning if i could .try it yourself and see what i mean .best hotel on the island.long may it last.cant wait till next year.
We returned from a 1 week stay at the Zante Maris in the middle of May. The hotel was beautiful and cannot fault the staff. The only slight negative was that our room was positioned directly above the kitchens, so we heard clattering pots up to about 11pm each night and from about 7am each morning. We ate our evening meal in the hotel twice and were found this to be good value for money, however the same could be said of the various bars and restaurants within Tsilivi which we also tried.
Excellent 1st class
We have just returned from the Zante Maris Hotel and would recommend the hotel to anyone. The service was 1st class as was the hotel itself. The staff were chatty and polite at all times and nothing was to much trouble for them. The rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean and comfortable. We went bed and breakfast and the food was remarkable, such a huge selection at breakfast and so much to choose from. I would certainly visit again. Even the transfer to and from hotel perfect. If you want a holiday where you want to be spoiled then chost the ZANTE MARIS HOTEL.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for Greek Easter. The hotel doesn't normally begin operating until May/June, but was fully booked with Greek tour comapnies for the four-day Greek Easter break. I think we would have enjoyed our stay at the Zante Maris a lot more during the summer months.
Really nice relaxing hotel
The hotel is right beside a lovely beach. The staff and hotel were very good. The rooms we had been allocated were on the ground floor even though we requested a top floor. The reception staff moved us immediatly. The food was good but abit repetative but perfectly adequate. The hotel had a real friendly feel and very clean and relaxed.
Great for the oldies
We spent two weeks at the Zante Maris in September and whilst we enjoyed it and found the hotel pretty good, it must be said that the guests were mainly in the "older" age bracket. The rooms were pretty good but like lots of holiday hotels, the shower floods the bathroom floor. There's nothing much to do in Tsilivi so don't go expecting an exciting holiday, just chill and you'll enjoy. The airport is an utter disgrace and you should be prepared for long delays on your return home. Because of the airport, we won't be back
Zante Maris A Great Hotel
We have just returned from 2 weeks staying at the Zante Maris Hotel in Tsilivi (2nd Oct 05) If you want a hotel right on the beach, with above average sized very clean rooms, towelling dressing gowns/slippers, great staff, wide choice of food(we were half board) and a nice village to stroll along in the evenings then this is for you. Hotel has evening shows etc but we preferred to go out each evening. Only drawback was the lack of bars in the village but Level became our favorite. Popeye's and sweet revenge were good for lunches. All in all we had a very chilled holiday but be aware the airport on the return will be so full of people you wont be able to move and the snack bar will charge 4.50 (sterling) for a cup of tea and a water so take your own drinks.
