Use our guide to discover which resort on popular Zante will meet your holiday requirements...
Pick your accommodation carefully on this island, as Zante hotels can be found in loud and lively party towns and hushed, stylish resorts. If it's night-time tunes you're after, Laganas is the place to be. Tsilivi has plenty of bars and clubs, though nightlife is a little more restrained than in Laganas, while in resorts such as Kalamaki, Alykanas and Vassilikos, the pace of life is much, much slower and evenings much quieter.
Most of the hotels in Zante are white-washed and low-rise, and many centre on a pool or two, with the very best offering direct beach access. There are some five-star hotels and luxury hotels, often replete with wonderful spas, and these are mostly located in Tsivili and Kalamaki. Budget hotels, self-catering apartments and apart-hotels can be booked at many locations around the island.
Even if you check into an all-inclusive hotel, or your stay is on a full-board basis, you should taste the wonderful dishes served up by local independent restaurants around the villages, towns and resorts of Zante. Greek cuisine is fresh and zesty and freshly-caught seafood is in abundance.
