Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I are not fans of large hotel complexes and nice, smaller hotels are getting harder to find. We were meeting up with my daughter and family in Greece and it was she who found the delightful Zoe Seaside Resort in Gialova. We had a nice room on the first floor which had a spacious balcony looking out over the bay. The staff were very helpful and welcoming on our arrival after a long drive down from Athens. The bedroom has the usual fridge, tea, coffee, hair dryer etc with plenty of hanging space. Very clean and pleasant bathroom with a good shower. Breakfast is buffet style, but the real bonus is then walking out with your tray to sit at the tables under the trees and looking out over the bay. Just a few more steps then takes you out onto the beach where they have plenty of sunbeds and they provide service of drinks etc . You can eat both lunch or dinner at the hotel, but also turn right out of the hotel, walk 20 yards and you have the small seafront with a good selection of restaurants, bars and grills. They have a very nice swimming pool but the sea was so nice for swimming, with a gently shelving sand base that was very safe for the young grandchildren to join us in the water. We also hired a paddle board for the day at 30 Euros, delivered right to the hotel. Mountain bikes were 122 Euros a day to hire from the same business. Can't really fault the place and we shall definitely go back next year.

Lovely small hotel. - Friendly staff, especially the breakfast ladies - Lovely area with lots of small restaurants and hikes within walking distance - Quiet at night - Enough free parking - The superior sea view rooms have a fresh welcoming vibe and are spacious - Good bed and balcony with comfortable chairs - The view to the sea is a bit limited but you can see it. - The bathroom is spacious but the water from the shower gets into the rest of the bathroom... but nothing you can't fix with a extra towel on the floor - The beautiful beach is right in front of the hotel and there are free (simple) sunbeds - Breakfast is fine. I liked the different kind of veggies (like beets and avocado) but was disappointed in the fruit selection (just apple, grapes and sometimes bananas). And they only have buffet eggs not to order. I would recommend the hotel for a stay of a few nights

We stayed at Zoe Seaside Resort for 14 days and had a rental car for 10 days. The rooms are spacious and very clean, we received fresh towels every day. We had a view of the sea, albeit a little distant, on the large balcony. The whole complex is very well maintained and the hotel also grows its own vegetables and fruit which you get for breakfast or dinner. We only had breakfast included and were very pleased with the large selection of fresh fruit, cheese and eggs or strudels. Fresh orange juice and other juices rounded out the great selection. We are also delighted with the big dog that roams around Gialova in the evenings. He is tolerated by everyone and is a very friendly, albeit huge, dog. We will gladly come again!

Our studio was a very large studio overlooking the garden, swimming pool & sea in the distance. The room was somewhat dark. The kitchen utensils were very basic if you were considering cooking here. It would have been good to have a toaster. The beds are not sprung and although I found reasonably comfortable my partner complained about the lack of give in the mattress. The bathroom was exceedingly small - the bath very small (I didn’t even try it because I knew it would be uncomfortable). There is hardly any space to stand up when out of the shower. It’s hard to understand why the bathrooms were designed to be so small when the rooms are so large. The furniture is of the large Greek traditional style. There are beautiful gardens surrounding the resort where they grow vegetables & fruit of all kinds. There are a number of ponds with frogs which make a lot of froggie chirping noises. Tge swimming pool is beautiful and a good size but deep even at the shallow end. It would be nice if there were a paddling pool and small pool for children. This is not a pool suitable for children unless they’re good swimmers. The sea view rooms at the front of the main hotel look overlook the trees in front on the lower floors and all balconies look over the street infront and below so not private at all. The breakfasts are adequate and nice but not exceptional and it gets busy around 9.30 when most people turn up. There is only one toaster in use. The staff are friendly and the resort is very clean. Sun beds are provided with staff who bring drinks when requested. The sea is very flat with no waves and the beach is fairly stony. The restaurant is very nice and mainly in the shade under the trees. The menu is small and probably one of the more expensive ones in the area. This is not an authentic Greek village but man made promenade with mainly restaurants and one food general shop. Is is mainly international tourists and most of the Greek people are the staff. The resort is expensive but this is probably due to its location near the beach and the fact it has a swimming pool. Found it to be an expensive place to stay but enjoyable still.

spent 16 nights here and could have stayed longer. We were in apartment with accessible needs. Large and well appointed. Staff great and friendly. FROGS abound so would advise having an apartment facing seaward which gives some protection from noise. Rooms 105-108 or 205-208. Breakfast buffet more than adequate for anyone's needs. Great pool and seafront with beach umbrellas and sunbeds BUT the hotel allow non-residents to use at a nominal rate of 2.5 euros per person whoch led to noisy and sometimes unruly people on to the beach which interefered with it's calm situation. Area will be outpriced soon due to new "resorts" being built so go earlier rather than later to experience this lovley place.

First time to Zoe's Resort but it definitely won't be our last. One of the best beaches we've been to during our time in Greece. The pool is fabulous and meant to be adults only (although a few parents thought otherwise) and the rooms are large and comfortable. Wonderful setting and walking distance to several good restaurants in the quaint town of Gialova. Navarino Bay construction is annoying but not earth shattering. Highly recommend.

We’ve stayed at Zoe a number of years and had a lovely time, however in the years we’ve been away the quality and service has become well above 5star. Our family suite was perfect with enough space for two adults and two children, offering enough privacy, storage and space. Lovely to have a sea view balcony and the rooms were extremely clean and kept that way even if we did keep bringing sand back from the beach! Bathroom is perfect for the circumstances and sink big enough to use as a baby bath. The breakfast was stunning with a great variety of both Greek and continental delicacies. Lunch and dinner food are also fantastic and it’s great to be able to have a drink while sat by the beach. Amenities at Zoe are great with towels refreshed daily, beach towels provided and everything a young family may need. The biggest praise however must be for the staff, we have felt so welcome and looked after. Our children have been doted on by all the staff (in the lovey Greek fashion), it’s lovely to come somewhere so friendly, you could almost be staying at a family members.

Being given a front ground floor room we were a little apprehensive about road noise, and nearby tavernas - need not have worried. Fortunately there was a Covid restriction on music and vehicle movements at night. Our room was well appointed and very good bathroom with wet room shower and toiletries. Small balcony was appreciated as we could view the sea and some of the comings and goings over a drink in the evening. While having breakfast under the trees and by the sea was very nice there were some short comings with the food supply. Bread did seem a little stale at times, trying to have a fresh orange juice was a problem (did not seem to understand) and the mixed fruit salad was not very varied. Covid necessities were well maintained. Beach chairs are free, appreciated as the next beach (while enjoyable) was a 30 minute walk away along the lagoon. Reception did help us with taxi use to Pylos as the buses were not running. Did have evening meal here, nice setting but limited menu and dearer than the competition. Would return for a week as a restful chilled out place with several eating options close by..

The hotel is at a perfect location. Friendly staff throughout the visit. Lunch at the restaurant was good, breakfast very basic. We had the family suite which is at the parking lot. Not a nice view / location. Also the room was very basic, does not feel comfortable. The bed was very low and the matress does not give any support.

I loved this hotel so much I extended my stay! Great design, wonderful location and a super friendly team. Shout out to Takis and to the lovely ladies at the reception who recommended a great sunset spot and called me in time when I forgot my phone charger. Eating breakfast on the waterfront under the trees is a dream. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough!
