What can I say? We have had the best weeks holiday of our lives.
A little out of the way, but the hotel itself is fantastic. Beautifully renovated, modern, extremely clean. Rooms are spacious and spotless. Cleaner comes in daily, however we only had one change of bed the whole week, meaning a bed full of sand after daily beach visits!!
Staff are friendly, work extremely hard and long hours, they will do anything for you. Reception staff especially helpful, calling taxis, booking trips and giving info.
My advice (after a bad experience) is not to book the my tours boat trip from reception, the boat is tiny and you can't even sit on the top deck as it only allows 15 people which gets full instantly. We spent four hours trapped inside this boat and due to bad weather didn't even get to see the shipwreck! (Not their fault) plenty of places to book trips at the different resorts.
Tsivili beach, after reading mixed reviews before our stay, is beautiful. Sandy not gravel and crystal clear sea. Free transport daily from the hotel to here and town has been very handy.
The food is excellent, salads each night alongside four or five main hot dishes to choose from. Traditional Greek dishes, aswell as a mixture of something else (Chinese or Italian etc) but always one or two traditional well cooked Greek dishes.
The view is out of this world, calming and relaxing. If you stay here, walk or get a taxi to the top of bochali (15min walk) to the top of the hill with the lit up church. Lovely tavernas and a breath taking view.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back one day
