Mario's Cave and Turtle Boat Trips

Reviewed By PatriciaOv - Amsterdam

We read some great reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to book with Mario. It was wonderful! He knows lots of stuff, is passionate about the sea and its creatures and takes you to all the best spots around Zakynthos. At Porto Roma we met Mario. He took us to quiet spots away from the busy areas, we spent some time on turtle beach and around the beautiful blue caves. We saw some turtles which was really amazing. We could swim at all the spots which was really nice on a hot day. He has snorkeling gear to borrow. By diving he brought up some starfish, sea slugs etc for us to see.
A great boat trip, we loved it!
Thanks Mario and greetings from Amsterdam!

Thomas Elena Beach Bar

Looks like home we call our secret garden very relaxing and welcoming atmosphare

Reviewed By WingtipCork - West Kilbride, United Kingdom

What a wonderful couple and our favourite place to be. Fab views, drinks, in heavenly surroundings! Nibbles provided with the drinks too
Free sun-beds without pressure to buy lots of drinks. Didn’t try toasties but had ice creams.
Walk out onto the beautiful decking and down to the beach where you can walk out far and actually get shallower as you go after the first small dip.
Really can’t do this place justice in words you just have to go there, and be like us and never want to leave.
Good place for a wedding if anyone is looking for a venue!

Nero Sport Diving Center

Reviewed By Ajc_venice - Venice, Italy

5 dives at Nero, i've found a very professional team of divemasters and guides. The rented gear is in near new condition, everything is pretty well organized. Each customer has its own personal file where they store dives and gear.
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere at the diving center,with a lovely bar for the customers.
The boat is traditional greek fisherman vessel converted to an efficient diver support.
4 out of 5 stars as the spots i explored were not as good as i expected. Nice scenery, not as many fish as i hoped for. found better spots in other part of the southern mediterranean.
maybe i was just unlucky, and definitely not Nero's people fault.
definitely would go there again. super safe and super staff.

Agios Dionisios Church

Reviewed By holidaymanWashington - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

This relatively modern church with it's separate bell tower is positioned opposite to the entrance to the port. The exterior is stylish but relatively plain and belies what lies within. The interior is truly magnificent; having painted walls and ceiling, akin to the Cistine Chapel. The scenes depict various stages of Christ's life and that of the apostles.
Simple but colourful stained glass windows, spread their light across the floor and huge chandeliers hang from the ceiling. It is unfortunate that the church wasn't lit up when we visited, as it would have shown the interior in it's full magnificence. Natural light only, keeps the interior on the dark side. The remainder of the church is ornately decorated and there are some plush seats at the rear, to spend a few moments of quiet reflection.
At the bottom right hand side, up a couple of steps, lies the even more ornate silver tomb of St. Denis, the island's patron Saint. Above is a fine silver chandelier. His entombed body is taken in procession around the town on his Saint's day, August 24th. Ladies must cover their shoulders and scarves are available for this. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the church. Candles are available at the rear, for a donation, should you wish to light one. There is also a gift shop to one side of the main entrance, selling mostly iconography.

We visited this an the lagonas fun train (highly recommended). We were given a very detailed and interesting explanation of the whole process by a very knowledgeable guide.
This was followed by sampling the olive oils and olives.
Nearly everyone on the trip left with a purchase, this speaks for itself.
Excellent experience.

Bliss swimming pool and bar

Reviewed By Kezzer2013 - Rotherham, England, United Kingdom

Called in here a couple of nights, lovely atmosphere, great music and lovely pool. Bar staff are very friendly and a pool table to entertain the kids. Comfortable Seating area in an evening, very chilled and relaxed.We went in as a large group and staff were very willing to accommodate us and moved tables and chairs to enable us to sit together.
The bar and pool area is open to the public and can be used by anyone both during the day and in the evening.
We didn't use the pool during the day but it looked lovely and was all lit up at night. Definitely worth a visit.
