Fantastic location seconds from beach and not far from centre water park across road and up a street 10 euro entry and you get a free meal. Hotel is on a little street but full of Germans staff in hotel were horrible! You can't eat or drink around the pool unless you buy from bar! The staff come and take any drinks you buy off site off you if you consume around pool. If I where to go back id pick different accommodation due to the staff but everything else was great!!!!

I stayed at the Planos Apartments, for two weeks, in August 2011, with my two young children (aged 4 and 5) and my mum (60). The whole place had recently been refurbished to a comfortable standard.

We had booked a ground floor room with two bedrooms, each with two single beds. Air conditioning was available for 5 Euros per day, and, although we were out all day almost every day, we did find it really important in order to get to sleep at night time. A safe was also available at an additional cost.

The whole place was very clean, and the maid came in every day during the fortnight - even on the special feast day, when we had expected that no-one would come. Sheets and towels were changed daily, and she was really friendly and kind.

The bathroom and kitchen were clean and to a fine standard. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - they really made even a day around the pool into a lovely time. There is no restaurant, but the outdoor bar offers snacks such as burgers, sandwiched, cooked breakfasts, omelets for around 5 euros.

Inside, there are pool tables, Sky TV, internet and plenty of seating in the indoor bar area.

On our departure day, we had a very late flight, and the staff kept our bags behind the desk, and even offered to provide us with towels to borrow so we could spend the day at the pool, but still pack our own things in advance.

We ate out every day, and found the restaurants and bars very reasonable, particularly if you eat the Greek specials, rather than the 'tourist' food (burgers, pizzas, etc). Everyone we encountered was lovely, and there was more than enough to keep us all occupied - even the children! All of the restaurants have outdoor children's play areas to keep them entertained while you relax, and they all seem to have really lovely atmospheres. There is some great live music around Tsilivi, too, not to mention some amazing cocktails!

My children ask at least once a week when we are going back, even though we've had other holidays in between! We would definitely go back here, and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a 3* 'good deal' holiday. Not the lap of luxury, but a comfortable place and great people :)

We stayed here at the end of the summer and enjoyed a memorable trip which we will always remember with great fondness. Our accommodation was perfect for our first trip to Tsilivi and the Planos Aparthotel is a decent complex in a brilliant location.

The apartments are a short walk to almost everything you will need during your trip and are only a stones throw from some great tavernas and restaurants which stay open till late. Despite the close proximity to everything we found the apartment complex to be quiet and peaceful during the day and when we returned at night.

All of the entertainment, pool games, music and general goings on seems to be found in the Planos Bay Hotel which is part of the same group and is on the other side of the road. This meant that the pool and bar at the apartments were generally quite chilled out with music playing in the afternoon. The poolside bar opens early in the day and serves food during the day with drinks available at most times. I can recommend an ice cold Mythos or Amstel whilst you sit in the afternoon sun.

The apartment itself was cleaned on a daily basis by a lovely Greek lady who we will always remember... The bathroom had new fittings and was spotless. The kitchen facilities were good and the cupboards were well stocked with everything you need if you want to stay in and cook, although there seems little need to do this. Separate bedroom opened out onto our balcony with a great view of the apartment complex below us and the surrounding area.

The bedroom itself contained a decent tv with loads of seemingly random channels. You will need to ask at reception for a remote, think we paid a small deposit. Ask at reception for a key to the safety deposit box and the remote for the air con as well... I forget the charge, but it wasn't too costly and is essential for a good nights sleep.

In terms of Tsilivi itself there is so much to write about but I will recommend a few things which really stood out.

Make sure you take a boat trip with Captain Spiros on Levante. Lots of reviews and information about his excursions on here and on the Zante websites. This will be a highlight of your trip if you do this.

Hire a car from Peter at Magaris Car Hire which is located across the road from the Planos Apart Hotel. An ex pat who runs a few businesses in Tsilivi, he is a great bloke and will give you tips on where to visit. We had a great time exploring the island in our Jeep.

Could make an endless list of tavernas and restaurants but here are two which are located on the same road as the apartments. Friends Bar is unreal, you will be welcomed like long lost family members and they will not let you leave! Also try 'Local Snack' a great place to eat, with fantastic Gyros and Souvlakis. No one seems to mention this place but we loved it. It was so cheap and possibly some of the best food we had in Tsilivi.

Room Tip: Depends what you're after but we emailed the hotel and requested a top floor apartment with a pool view.

Room was a decent size & cleaned everyday, but the hotel complex was just looking rather dated. Very noisy & the rooms are along a landing which looks more like a prison landing & when kids run along it echoe's all the way through.

When we arrived we wern't greeted very warmly at check-in, there was 1 oriental looking woman on the desk a couple of times and she was the only one who smiled & made you feel welcome.

Pool area leaves a lot to be desired - bed/towel wars in the mornings, there woudn't be a problem get a sunbed if they were all in decent condition, quite a few of them are cracked & smashed. The bar area is pathetic. Me & my husband stayed at the beginning of September thinking there wouldn't be any kids, we were surprised there was as many as there were, kids running round the pool, i think i was more concerned for them slipping and hurting themselves than their parents were, they were to busy drinking!!

On the second day we decided to go down to the beach which was much better, lay on the sunbeds in Freddie's bar - nice & friendly, so from there on we went there every day - so much better than staying round the pool.

The resort Tsilivi is nice plenty of bars & restaurants, out fave taverna was Menir's - turn left down by the Corner bar it's at the bottom of the road, the owner plays the Bazouki - great atmosphere.

Would go back to the resort but certainly not the hotel!!

Just come back from a fantastic holiday at the Planos apartments. The apartments are small but clean, and the staff are very friendly and you can have a good laugh with them if you make an effort to speak to them, we got plenty of free shots of sambuca during our stay!!

You can use the facilities of the Planos bay across the road which is good for a change and there is some entertainment provided over there, however we found the Planos apts to be much cleaner,less noisy and also cheaper ( food and drinks at the planos bay are approx 50cents more which adds up).

As for the rooms, yes they are small and basic as the majority of hotels are in Greece. If people are expecting luxury in Greece then stay in a 5 star hotel- simple! The apts are a 5min walk to the beach and within 5mins to the nearest restaurants/bars. It takes about 20mins to walk from one side of Tsilivi (Planos) to the other- with plenty of bars and restaurants along the way. Can recommend the Ark bar as a young couple as the most lively place to go, and a few restaurants we ate at were Zues, Il gusto and Popeyes, all nice, though generally all the restaurants looked nice to eat at.

Tsilivi itself is gorgeous and would recommend for families and couples wanting plenty going on without it being in your face like laganas.
