Kalimera Stayed at this hotel for 11 nights from 16 July to 27 July. Would definitely recommend this hotel as could not fault it at all other than daft little things which are out the hotel's control. We stayed in the annexe block, room 219 which was the first room from the stairs from the pool so you did hear people going past your door. The doors are light and wooden and would often hear people slamming their doors and what sounded like moving their furniture upstairs. The rooms were clean and bright and airy. Had two large double beds and a spare single bed. Cleanliness was excellent. Cleaner was in every day. Had clean bedding what seemed like most days and could have had fresh towels every day, although we like to do our bit for environment so would have ours refreshed every other day. We paid extra to have the aircon and safe. The aircon was a saviour and some mornings had to turn it off as was too cold! We had the cockerel out the back of our property. Yes it did wake us up on occasion but we found the funny side of it! The pool yet on the small side was lovely and absolutely bliss to get into in the degree heat. Did think half way through our holiday it was getting busier and people were starting to get a bit "silly" with their towels on beds. Even saw one man putting his towels down at 1.30am one morning as we were heading to bed!! There are not enough umbrellas and we had this right family next to us a couple of times, the missus was a right miserable cow. They had to have two umbrellas no matter what! Selfish!!! The bar staff and restaurant staff were lovely, all friendly and helpful. The drinks were okay. I love wine but the white wine was more like sherry and I just couldn't drink it. Could have drank the gin and tonic all day/night and would never have got drunk though lol. The restaurant and food was lovely. It's not the biggest restaurant so as with other larger all inclusive establishments doesn't have a massive range although it did try to accommodate all tastes. Always plenty fresh salad, meat dishes, pasta dishes, vegetables and whatever was on special being cooked by the chef. Couldn't fault the food. Predominantly Greek food which is how it should be and was fantastic. My stepson is the pickiest person though and he just tended to eat the pasta and bits off the kids table. The only bug bear I would have was the heat in the restaurant. At times it was too hot and very uncomfortable. There was an airconditioning machine but this was only turned on several times throughout our stay. The entertainment staff, Adam, Selim and Dita were great and we looked forward to our daily "What's in the Box" challenge. Who would have thought such a simple thing could produce so much enjoyment! The entertainment staff did their best with getting people involved. We did stay a couple of evenings for the entertainment but most nights headed into town or down to Kalamaki. Didn't have any real cause to use reception so cannot really comment on reception. They were great when we checked in and one day we asked if they could book us a taxi to get to Kalamaki which they were happy to do so. The position of the hotel (as it states in brochures/online) is 10/15 minute walk from resort. This is to the outskirts of the resort and it was a 10 minute walk just to reach the nearest supermarket. A good 30 minute walk if you wanted to reach the top end of Tsilivi and near the beach. All in all we had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend the Filoxenia to others. First time for myself in Tsilivi having visited Zante numerous times. My heart still lies in Kalamaki and that's where we'll be heading next. Roll on 2016! Yamas!

Highly recommend this hotel, although we were a little worried that it was a little further from town than we would like, it was only 15-20 minutes walk, the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you. The food was excellent and not duplicated in the week we were there. There were ample opportunities to have snacks, afternoon tea and cakes and any other local drinks you liked in the all inclusive deal. A shame that the cocktails were chargeable but the charge was only small if you wanted one anyway. The entertainment or animation staff during the day and evening were all great and not too pushy if you didn't want to join in although we did when we were around. The rooms were great, all having a quirky picture on the wall, ours had a pair of ladies legs dangling over a large branch above the white sand with the blue sea in the backround, sounds weird I know but was quite pleasant really. We also had a kitchenette with fridge and microwave, didn't need the microwave but the fridge was handy. There was a charge of 20 euros to have 24hour air conditioning which you do need to purchase as it was 35-40 plus degrees most of the week. There was a TV in the room although the only English channel was the BBC News 24 channel. It didn't bother us as we don't go on holiday to watch the TV. The free WIFI could be better as it was very patchy around the complex and not accessible from our room. Overall a fantastic week had by us all, thank you to the staff and the people of Tsilivi who with all the recent troubles that have been reported do not appear to have let it affect them in anyway at all and treated us really really well.

We have stayed at Filoxenia hotel with my wife and my son Dejan for 10 days July 2015. What a nice surprise since the beginning. Our room was 203 with puppies’ picture. We love animals and especially dogs. The room was big, comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The position of the hotel was very convenient. The food was delicious and very similar to the Albanian one. Both pools were excellent and clean, but we preferred more the relax pool near the bar. We want to thank all the staff of the hotel, which was hardworking and very helpful and especially the Albanian staff starting from Dennis, Diana at the reception desk, Aleks, Sofia, Ana, Andrea, Fatos, Alentin, Gramos . They were all so hardworking, helpful and with a kindly smile with everybody. We are so proud for you guys. The animation team was also good. They were trying hard to entertain people and involve them in various activities organized without disturbing them. My son Dejan enjoyed very much all the activities and was actively involved in these activities. We also were involved in some of them. The entertainment in the evenings was good. We enjoyed especially the rock night and the Greek night. We thank Adam, Dita and particularly Selim for their efforts. We felt like at home and spent an unforgettable time at this hotel. We highly recommend this hotel to everybody and we would definitely come back there in the future.

Little things matter

We booked the filoxenia based on trip advisor reviews. As previous reviews have stated, all members of staff are friendly and helpful. The food is of very high quality and there is plenty of choice. The drinks on offer are also fine. Our room was spacious and clean but we had 303 with a walled balcony and a view over the restaurant roof. If you wAnt to relax on the balcony at the end of the day this is not the one for you. Poolside was clean with plenty of sunbeds but there were not enough parasols, and those available were at the end of their working life. The pool area is a sun trap and unless you got up early to secure the beds with parasols the only other shelter was around the bar area. A plea to Diana hotels is to buy more parasols. Other small gripe was that the dining room air con was broken and the room was unbearably hot to the extent eating was rushed which was a real shame given how good the food was. A free minibus is available to and from the beach and a taxi to Zakinthos town is 11 euro each way, worth an evening visit. Don't let the negatives here put you off. The hotel offered excellent value and I would recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday.
