I read a lot of reviews about this hotel before I went last week on a 7 day all-inclusive holiday with 2 friends (all aged early 20s)
What we didnt realise was the resort of Tsilivi was closing down for the season, and this was the last week the hotel was open before winter.
I was pleasantly surprised by the room, which was basic but fairly modern. It was cleaned daily and we had fresh sheets and towels a number of times in the week.
The food was pretty average, with much the same thing every day. Still edible though, and fresh salad and fruit every day. A massive downer was the amount of cats and dogs allowed to roam through the hotel, especially when trying to eat. Some may like that, I did not.
The entertainment was apalling though. Not a big deal for me who was quite happy sitting in the bar reading a book or playing cards, but seeing as it was half term there were a lot of families there with kids aged 2-15 with nothing to do.
The pool was nice, and plenty of sunloungers to go round.
Beware of the rain though, the hotel leaks like a seive, with towels being placed throughout the hotel to mop it up. I know of some guests whose bedrooms even flooded.
The staff were a mixed bunch. The receptionist (Sophia?) and Mickey the geordie barman made the hotel, and were always keen to help. The rest were miserable and rude, and it seemed like an inconvenience to be staying there.
Overall, for the very cheap price I paid it was good value and a good relaxing getaway, but the hotel needs a complete rebuild and a change of staff to live up to being a proper family holiday hotel.
