We have just got home from a 2 week stay in the Iakinthos Resort hotel in Tsilivi = 23/9/11
One of the best holidays we have had, and we have had a few!
The Hotel was excellent, perfect location right on the beach and only a few minutes walk to the centre of Tsilivi, the owners Maria and Costadinos gave us a very warm welcome and even came to pick us up from the airport (and took us back at the end of our holiday), nothing was too much trouble and they looked after us well, especially Jenny who was always running around after us. Breakfast was soooo good! - the best we have ever had in a Bed and Breakfast and served at such a civilised time 9.30 - 11.30 so you can lie in if you want, served up with peaceful classical music, to start the day as you mean to go on!
Our room was really nice, a lovely balcony with a sea view, you could listen to the waves while you were in bed - perfect!
Must do's on your holiday in Tsilivi -
Best restaurants - The Appolon where the food and service is excellent its just by the Paradise Bar and the Tsilivino just past "That Bar" going towards the beach on the next left, you have to go to this one for the wonderful food but more than that the service in the style of Manuel from Fawlty Towers! it is a family run business, Mamma and Pappa cooking and the 2 sons waiting on, it was pure entertainment to sit there and look at what was going on around us, and then you were served food that was to die for, most if it from their farm - wonderful every time we went.
We also went on a boat trip, I have been trying to get my husband on a boat trip for 20 years, he has always declined and states 18 years in the Navy what would I want to go on a boat trip for! I booked it while he was watching the Rugby - Wales and Samoa and fortunatly his team won, so he was in a good mood when I told him, we went on the Levante speed boat trip, with Captain Spiros - it was really good, we saw the shipwreck and the incredible blue caves, the boat was small enough so we could all see what was going on around us and we had stops for swimming and lunch, i can thoroughly recommend this one!
All in all a perfect holiday and we will definatly be going back - cant wait!!
Thank you Maria and Costadinos for a wonderful holiday.
Cheryl & David - Happy Days!
