“Excellent Again”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

Stayed in the Self Catering appts this time after previously staying in the hotel but not eating breakfast !! ......... Once again the facilities and staff could not be faulted.
Yes is has a bar that is open until late but they turn the music down and close some of the outside doors to be bar at a sensible time. our room was in the block next to the bar area, we had double glazin and on the rare occasion we went to bed before the bar closed then once the doors were closed you could hear a thing .......
Staff go out of their way to be helpful and i would highly reccomend a stay here.

The Princess is a brilliant hotel the owners and all their staff are fantastic they all were very welcoming and very helpful! Freddie is fab a credit to the hotel, Sonya was lovely aswell always friendly and happy to help! Dimi and Babis the owners were also very friendly it was a lovely atmosphere to be around all the staff seemed very happy and it reflected back on to the guests!

The room was small and basic but lets face it you only need the room to sleep in and get ready for a night out! The bar did play loud music on a night, and I can understand some people not enjoying that but I didn't mind, they played good music!!!

The hotel was kept very clean and tidy from the rooms, reception, pool area, restaurant could not fault the hotel on its cleanliness!!! The breakfast was basic but I thought it had a better selection of things to eat rather than just limiting you to toast like some hotels i have stayed at before! But if you want a proper breakfast you dant have to look far, some great choices and not bad prices, Tizzy's was the best and it's British!!

For an evening meal you have many choices they all try and get you in to their restaurant don't be to hasty to go to the first one you see walk about a bit, some nice bars to have a few drinks before your meal!! I can highly recommend Nostos, Majestic, The Olive Tree and Giorgio's!

In all a lovely hotel all the staff were brilliant, would definitely stay again, highly recommend you try it!!!

This hotel is in a great location within the resort of Tsilivi soon as you step out there are bars and restaurants. The beach is a little walk from the hotel but the walk seems short as there are plently of shops on route. We stayed for a week and there was plently to do in the resort, we ate out most nights at The Olive Tree, Perio's, Athena,... there is also a crazy golf course which is fun. We didnt do any trips but there seem to be plenty available.
We stayed B & B and the princess. Our room was round by the pool it was quite small but clean, we didnt spend much time in the room. We did hire a fridge which was 5euro per day.
We ate lunch at the hotel most days and the food was good. The bar area is lovely and the bar staff Freddie, Becky, Nathan and a greek lady (cant remember her name) were great. They come round the pool taking food/drink orders but they dont pester you they are just friendly!
I would definitely recommend going to Tsilivi and staying at the Princess we are going to go back next year .

Really great hotel! Ignore all the negative comments below... where people have said that if you dont eat/drink and spend money at the hotel, then you get ignored....?! This is not the case! Of course they like you to have a beer or 2 with them at the hotel bar before leaving for an evening.... just becuase they are so friendly and enjoy having a drink with you! We used to go for a drink at the hotel bar, then head out into the resort for a meal and more drinks!
The staff here were great.. especially the 2 bar guys... Freddie and Nathan!! :) Both were really lovely guys and nothing was too much trouble.

We were based in the studios (booked through Cosmos) adjacent to the hotel building, and these were lovely. Really nice, clean, spacious, and you can tell they are a slightly better star rating. Kitchen facilities (not that we used them) were great, and the were quite new and modern inside.
Nice pool area, always plenty of room, and the pool bar serving resonably prices drinks and snanks all throughout the say until late.

Hotel offers safety deposit boxes in reception that you can hire for a resonable price.

The hotel is in the centre of the resort, just next to the bakery. So its about a 10 minute walk down to the beach, but only a couple of steps from a range of shope, bars and tavernas.

If you havnt been to Tsilivi before, feel free to contact me, and i can recommend all the best restaurants and bars to go to during your holiday. I have been there 4 times now, and love it! I will say, Joker Cocktail Bar just along from this hotel - is great!! If you want a little more of a lively night out... go here! Its excellent! The staff there are so friendly and so much fun! :)

This was our second visit to Tsilivi but our first at the Princess Hotel and from the time we arrived until we left we were treated so well by all the staff and owners of the Princess Hotel.

Our room was on the second floor and was quite basic but was cleaned regularily and had everything we needed. We paid for the use of a fridge and aircon but we always have had to pay for these in other hotels. The breakfast we got on the Bed and Breakfast basis was the best we have ever had in any Hotel in Greece. I usually had fruit salad with Greek yogurt, toast and egg and cofee.
We had our lunch at the snack bar on a few occasions and found the food really nice. We did use the pool bar most nights for a nightcap before turning in for the night and we met so many nice people to chat to and have a drink with, We also went to two Greek nights at the hotel and on both occasions we had a really great time.
The hotel is in a good position for so many good resturant we liked Perios The Olive Trea, The Athennia, Sweet Revenge any many others. Never had a bad meal at any of the resturants we ate at.
Also loved having a milkshake during the day or a wee drink at Herby's garden at Bowl them Over.

The best thing about our holiday was all the great people we met and the friendly owners Babis and Demi and their amazing staff Freddy and his wife Natalie who could not do enough for us, Jenny and Romeo who served us drinks round the pool Sonya and Emma in reception and Greg Sonya's husand who danced for us at the Greek night..
We are missing them all and think of them all as friends who we hope to see again next year.
The worst thing was having to leave to come home.

good hotel if your preperred to spend all your time at hotel spending all your money, then staff friendly and polite,but beware if you want to go outside and eat and drink! you wll be ignored and totally blanked.Very noisey into early morning at the pool bar so had very little sleep,The only positive thing i can say its very clean.Football and sport on large screens every day, shut your eyes and you could be in a local pub in britain.Outside the hotel was very nice, lots of nice places to eat and drink, very friendly and 5mins from the beach where me at my partner spent most of our time which was very nice.Go to this hotel if you are going to spend all day at the pool and all evening at the hotel bar otherwise AVOID!!!!!
