The Crystal Beach hotel was nothing but perfect. Me and my girlfriend went there for a whole week and it honestly was a fantastic experience! The hotel room was beautiful with an amazing view and a nice balcony. Every morning there was a different breakfast selection and it was delicious every single time. The hotel has such a nice swimming pool with very comfortable sun-beds and it was never too busy. Besides the pool, the hotel lies directly in front of the Kalamaki beach, which is one of the nicest sand beaches Zakynthos has to offer. Non hotel guests have to pay for the beach sun-beds, but the hotel has a small strip of grass with their own sun beds and parasols right near the beach, for free! The hotel also offers amazing lunch options during the day and there is a bar where you can get your favorite drinks (all day long!). Furthermore, the hotel has a fantastic restaurant with different specials each day and an amazing view over the see and a beautiful garden. The restaurant was very busy, because people from all over the island came there to eat (I think that says enough about the restaurant). The staff were very kind and helpful, always with a smile on their faces. Overall just a wonderful experience, we will definitely come back!

7 days of relaxation with my wife in a beautiful location. From 6 September 2020 to 13 September 2020. Excellent hotel staff even in times of SARS - Cov2. Our age: 66 and 65. Traveled enough around the world. The hotel is perhaps the only one that directly overlooks the immense beach that runs from Kalamaki to Laganas. It was probably built before the whole area became a protected marine reserve (Caretta turtles). Then direct access to the sea, beach equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas (be careful not to walk over the brood of turtle eggs duly fenced and protected). Splendid sea: practically a borderless salt water pool with no (or almost) wave movement in the period indicated above. Real water temperature (the best of the Greek islands visited so far). Very transparent and gently sloping sandy bottom. No motor boats allowed in the sea (protected marine park). To return to the hotel: perfect cleanliness, excellent food, abundant continental breakfast (in times of SARS - CoV2 it takes a little more time and patience to be served in order to respect, rightly, all the protection measures to protect the staff and also for our protection). We had chosen bed and breakfast. But we also used the excellent restaurant for dinner. The evening dedicated to the grill is recommended. Great outdoor hotel bar next to the relaxing pool. Nice people at the reception: efficient, courteous and they didn't even charge me a surcharge for the "late check out". But don't tell the owner of the hotel. Here I stop. What can I say ... recommended to everyone. I would go back immediately. The only drawback not attributable to the hotel: not even the shadow of loggerhead turtles. They appear to be on the opposite island of Kalonisi. Yeah, but the eggs come and lay them on the hotel beach. I haven't seen a single one. That they come on purpose when I'm sleeping to spite me?
Excellent 2* Hotel

Fantastic location, beautiful beach, close enough, and far away enough from Laganas, excellent restaurants nearby (Vinaz Resto Bar) and helpful staff. I would recommend that the hotel restaurant perhaps invest in fresh orange juice and better coffee for their breakfast servings in the morning. I also recommend that the hotel make it clear to guests that the Crystal Studios are not part of the hotel. Unfortunately our friends booked the studios thinking it was by the hotel, however they were disappointed to find that it was quite far away and that they were not able to use the pool facilities at the hotel perhaps due to COVID. It was all in the fine print, but not clear enough and it ruined the trip for our friends.

Well, let’s start with the location. Situated at one of the most special beaches on the island. You have to walk a bit, but it’s definitely worth it...! Not far from the airport, Laganas and Kalamaki as well as Zanthe town, I consider it as one of the best hotels I have seen on the island after one week. Especially with the nice and old palm trees at the pool and the nice beach house, it’s really worth staying. Go on their private website to find better deals than booking, etc. We had a so called suite on the top floor. Nice, but not really big and the bathroom is actually really small. Aircon works well and is really necessary in August. Actually I don’t understand why there is no aircon in the lobby. Sometimes it’s so hot there, also in the evenings without wind, that you can barely stand there and wait for a cab. I think it would give the hotel much more style, if they invest in that. Nevertheless the staff is amazing. The cleaning ladies do an amazing and hard job and Elias, the house keeper is always there and super supportive! The two ladies at the reception are just gorgeous, the two main waiters at the beachbar and restaurant are always friendly. We personally did not like the breakfast so much (spoiled with fresh orange juice and good coffees), so we went to the beachbar every day. They have very nice drinks, juices and cocktails. The burgers and the Zaziki are one of the best on the whole Island. As a hotel guest, I would expect a discount in the beachbar, rather than paying the same as all others from the beach. We are spending a lot there every day and support the hotel in these difficult times. Being located just next to the beach and the turtle protecting zone, I would not sell any plastic (straws, cups, etc.). I know it’s tricky with covid, but there are organic alternatives!!! All for now. :-)

Staff Is fabulous and we were so sad to leave.....i would recommend this hotel!!! The island Is Amazing but this Is definitely the best Place to stay. Laura&Luca
