Golden Sun Resort & Spa

Golden Sun Resort & Spa is a luxury adults-only complex in Kalamaki, on the southern coast of the Greek island of Zante. The beach is just 150m away, where you'll find long stretches of sand, with views of mountainous scenery along the coastline. It is surrounded by the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, boasting acres of evergreen trees and nests of loggerhead sea turtles.

All rooms provide the ultimate luxury being a large 34m2, with a sea view. If you like to swim choose the private pool option, if you prefer to relax go for the Jacuzzi. There’s also all the facilities you would expect at a 4 star hotel such as WiFi, a TV, a safe, a minibar and a hairdryer.

Guests choosing the private pool option, will still have access to the Jacuzzi in the spa, which also boasts a heated pool and a Hammam. For a more personal touch you can book a relaxing treatment from the menu.

The a la carte restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet romantic evening meal while devouring the chef’s specialities. It is also open for breakfast and lunch. Afterwards, maybe visit the cocktail bar, where you can have a peaceful drink or play a competitive game of billiards or darts. The poolside bar offers refreshments such as coffee, orange juice, ouzo and light bites from morning until late, maybe just what you need after a swim.

The island of Zante has a rich cultural history, with plenty of attractions to explore such as museums, ancient ruins, monasteries and the picture-postcard Blue Caves. For those partial to a drink made from fermented grapes, there’s opportunities to visit local wineries and taste the produce, as well as a museum exhibiting the history of the winemaking produce. If you prefer to be active horse riding and go karting are available options. If you’re a spontaneous traveller and don’t want to make plans in advance, the hotel staff will be happy to assist with booking excursions after you arrive in Greece. You won’t face a long transfer after your flight, as Zakynthos Airport is just five minutes drive away.

Avoid at all costs - honeymoon ruined!

Jan 2022 | hannaho163

I am disgusted with this hotel and Jet 2 Holidays. I have been visiting Kalamaki since 1997 and to have our honeymoon ruined by this hotel is a huge disappointment. I have never stayed in a hotel in Kalamaki with such abysmal customer service. Greece is known for excellent hospitality and Greek people known for their warm personalities and thus this is a huge let down. The hotel itself is nice, we had a swim up room which was nice. The hotel is located adequately, quite far out from the resort centre but we knew this upon booking as we know Kalamaki very well so this was nothing unexpected. The rooms are small but again we knew this before booking. The breakfast is very poor and there is a lot of waste with it, they do not allow you to specify which cereal you would like, for example, so instead bring you four different varieties, who in their right mind is going to eat four types of cereal in one sitting? Surely it wold be far less wasteful for them to ask which one you would like. The manager tends to appear at breakfast and bark orders at the staff, he always seems very angry which makes the breakfast atmosphere very tense. On night two of our 2 week stay, we arrived back to our room at 1am to find a mouse scurrying along the curtains, we immediately called Reception (which is located in the sister hotel) and the receptionist arrived within ten minutes. By this time we were frantic because the mouse had vanished somewhere in our room. The receptionist proceeded to kill the mouse with a brush (laughing whilst doing so) in our room and smear blood up the walls and all over the floor of the room and refuse to clean it up.The next morning we complained at the reception and they could not even be bothered to apologise. I have been visiting Kalamaki multiple times a year since 1997, having stayed in some very basic accommodation, and I have never ever encountered a mouse in any other hotel in Kalamaki and at the very least I would expect an apology from the hotel. They offered us a free lunch at the hotel which was amongst the worst food I have every tasted, cheap plastic ham which I would not even feed to my dog. Do not even waste your money on food at this hotel, this is the worst meal I have ever had in kalamaki, free or otherwise. The hotel cleaned the room for us, which was not a better standard than how it was cleaned any other day and the blood remained on the walls and floor. They insist it was cleaned to a higher standard. It was not. We asked for a room swap at the hotel but they refused despite telling us that they had availability to do so. We complained to the Jet2 Rep (I believe they call them "Customer Helpers" to give them their official title but this one, Steve, was more of a 'Customer Hindrance"). He did not want to know in the slightest, not at all. He was too interested in telling us that his day off was the next day. His response was "well I live in Zante Town and we have rats there too", to which my response was "I'm not surprised", anyone that has visited Zante Town will know what I mean when I say this. We had to beg him to look for an alternative hotel for us, stating in no uncertain terms that we did not want o leave Kalamaki, so he comes back with a hotel he had found in Tsilivi, I doubt he had even looked in Kalamaki. His attitude was downright disgraceful and Jet2 holidays ought to be ashamed of this employee because having worked at TUI myself a few years ago in Zante I am certain that the way he acted and spoke to us would simply not be acceptable on any level. He also informed us "there are numerous mouse traps all around this hotel but they hide them because we know of people knew abut this they would not come here", admitting that Jet2 know this is a problem and do not care, they simply care about making money. The attitude of the Jet2 Rep and the attitude of the hotel completely ruined our honeymoon, to brush off something that has caused us emotional distress is diabolical. I work in healthcare so have seen numerous distressing things at work but to come on a honeymoon and be forced to stay in a room with blood all over it and watch someone murder an animal whilst laughing is pretty shocking hen you have pent the best part of £5000 on a holiday. To this day we can still see the blood smeared all over our 'luxury' hotel room on our honeymoon. We saved hard and worked hard for tis holiday, working key worker roles through a global pandemic to have it ruined by poor customer service. Customer Service is everything in an industry like this and thus they have completely ruined our experience. Rest assured that if you are going to Kalamaki for the first time the rest of the hotels in the resort employ caring and hospitable staff. I would n to recommend this hotel to my worst enemy and I would never, ever step foot in this hotel again.

Great experience! Highly recommended

We stayed in a suite with a private pool. Staff and owners were friendly in a discrete way. Room was spacious,bed very comfortable and everything was clean (cleaning staff was passing by every morning). Hotel surroundings (fountain,garden etc.) were also very well preserved and clean. A la carte breakfast with variety of tasy choices. Hotel restaurant is highly recommended (many tasty choices in reasonable price). We enjoyed our time there and would definitely visit the resort again!

Fantastic place with amazing breakfast service

Jul 2021 | Helene G

We stayed for 1 week in a private pool suite, fantastic resort with great location, very close to the beach and an easy 1,2 km walk to Kalamaki town. The luxury of a private pool is amazing, try it! Many great restaurants in town, car hire close by and we really enjoyed watching the airplanes land and take off. Note that they are not allowed to fly at night… The breakfast was fantastic and massive portions - but the service was AMAZING, thank you so much Vasilki and Afrodite for this wonderful experience every morning, always big smiles, remembering preferences, working smoothly and fast. You are both so professional, Golden Sun Resort must be VERY proud to have you working with them!!
