last minute deal - great choice
kalamaki is a lovely area of zante with lots of bars and restaurants - its a little quieter tham laganas but that is not too far away if you want nightlife.
The macedonia hotel was modern, clean and spacious. It had alovely clean pool with lots of su beds, childrens play area and a bar close to the pool where you could get food, ice cream , drinks and even watch tv if you wished (mostly football).
It is very near the airport so you do get very low flying planes which create a lot of noise but after a day or so you get used to this and it is quite interesting watching the planes land and take off whilst you are sun bathing. The planes don't land or fly after 10pm in the evening and only start again around 6.30am so you do get a decent sleep and as I said before after a short while you are so used to it it doesnt even wake you! One tip - a taxi to and from the airport is far cheaper than a resort transfer and quicker as its only 3km away.
The hotel has the cleanest and most modern pool toilets i have ever experienced and they clean your rooms and leave fresh towels every 2 days - they seem to pride themeselves in the cleanliness and we had no complaints about the staff. On the 2nd night my parteer lost his wallet and they found it and everything was intact so this was pleasing to find honest staff at the hotel. Plenty to see/do around zante - hire a scooter, car or quad to get out and about and you will experience a far better holiday. For a holiday we only booked 2 days before going we had a fantastic time!!

family run apartments
the rooms are very basic, kitchen dosn't even have a bread board. take your i pod speakers no t v or no forms of music. the hotel is clean and will presented and only a short walk from the strip were all the resturants are. the pool area is clean and in good repair. the beach is a fair walk so you may need a coffee break on the way

Not a place to relax!
The area of Kalamaki is very touristy, not at all Greek, catering too much for the Brits! Air craft noise is very bad as only 3 kilometers from airpot! This hotel is nicely set out but the owners are very rude and miserable people! The pool bar they run is not caterd for the clients who are staying at their accomodation, the noise from this pool bar can be heard in your rooms as they play loud music and have the foot ball on at the same time blasting out! They cater for anyone who comes to the pool and are basicaly larger louts! I have lived, worked and holidayed in Greece for over 20 yrs and I have never experienced anything as bad as this hotel for noise!
