The Bay is a beachfront, family-friendly hotel in Vasilikos, a quiet beach resort on the south eastern coast of the Greek island of Zante. The sandy Vasilikos Beach is steps away from the hotel, while the town centre of Vasilikos, with plenty of local shops, bars and restaurants, is a short walk away. The hotel has views across the Ionian Sea. The Bay is Mediterranean in style, with whitewashed walls. Its buildings are set within tree-lined gardens, and there's a central outdoor swimming pool and separate pool for children. You can sit and relax on the sun terrace with a drink from the pool bar. There are two restaurants, including one with an ala carte menu. The hotel organises fitness classes for adults, and you can also hire tennis equipment. During your stay, you can relax in the spa, where there's a sauna and a Turkish bath. You can also book in for a massage or beauty treatment. For an active holiday, you can use the onsite gym or volleyball net on the beach. If you want to go exploring instead, you can head inland and discover ancient olive groves and local Greek villages surrounded by countryside.
The Bay is 200m from Vasilikos Beach, 1km from Vasilikos town and 12km from Zante Town, the capital of the island. In the main centre, you can wander around the port with its restaurants and cafes, or browse the shops and pick up a souvenir. For history and culture, you can visit the Byzantine Museum and Solomos Museum. There's also a tourist train that takes you around the area starting from Solomos Square. In Zante Town, you can also visit Bohali, an ancient stone castle on a hillside. If you climb to the top, you can see panoramic views of the town and ocean.
The hotel has a buffet restaurant offering breakfast and dinner. There's also an ala carte restaurant serving breakfast and lunch each day, with a kids' menu available. You can order soft and alcoholic drinks from the pool bar throughout the day, until late in the evening.
Hotel staff put on entertainment for children six times a week, and family entertainment twice a week. There's also a mini disco.

Comfortable room, everything you need is there. Spacious balcony with wonderful view. Lift in the main building. Nice shower, lots of hot water, everything is impeccably clean.
Location of the hotel is very convenient and beautiful, just by the beach with long walks. The hotel grounds are vast compared to other hotels. Even when the hotel is full, which is practically all the time, you do not feel crowded anywhere on the grounds.
My husband and I have been coming to the Bay for ten years twice a year and every time we are enjoying ourselves tremendously and are sad to leave. Looking forward to the next year and meet again all the wonderful staff and to enjoy tasty food produced by the restaurants. Highly recommend this place for couples looking for peaceful and relaxing time.
Staff were always helpful and friendly with a special mention for the superb service from Lina and Marina in the Spa.
We changed rooms to suit my 94 yr old mother better (a sea view being much more important to her than the management's thoughtful allocated room next to the lift) and that was done extremely smoothly.
A really relaxing holiday.
I brought my mum to Zakynthos for the weekend (18th - 21st Oct). I saw this hotel in bookings.com and fell in love with it. It was so worth it.
Lovely small beach attached to the hotel, you also have banana beach and St Nicholas beach within walking distance - both are pristine!
Lovely breakfast and dinner buffet options (it was half board).
Lovely and friendly staff members, so wonderful and welcoming.
The Spa was fantastic - my mum had a stress relieving massage and the girls and guys at the spa were outstanding. Special shoutout to Lina! Thank you so much for the amazing experience.
The area is wonderful, scenic, authentic. You can take a taxi to any of the more busier towns (Zakynthos town is about 20 mins, Argassi is similar).
I highly recommend!!!
