“Great family holiday”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Myself and my partner travelled with our 2 year old son , just arrived home from a lovely holiday at the Planos Apart Hotel 28/5/12- we booked as a last minute deal and paid £470 for the three of us so to be honest just wanted a cheap week in the sun. There was a couple of issues at first when we arrived we were given a room which backs onto the already mentioned on many reviews the chicken pen , dog's , pup's, yes they were noisy and annoying spoke to reception and we were given another room straight away without any hassle.
The staff were honestly friendly and helpfull , maids worked really hard the rooms were cleaned everyday and fresh bedding , towels etc.The rooms are basic and clean what you would expect from a 3 star they were big enough for the 3 of us. The room was fairly cool as the balcony didnt get a lot of sun which suited us fine we didnt need the air con.
There is a choice of bar snacks burgers etc , we had a couple of snacks but generally went out all the time because there are so many nice places to eat.The pool was nice and clean it was pretty cold but you need to cool down,plenty of loungers no people putting towles out at stupid o clock lol .You can use the Admiral Hotel and the Planos Hotel both next to this one they do all the evening entertainment we didnt go as there is so much to do in Tsvilli.There is no entertainment in this hotel in the evening so its quiet at night. This place is ideal for families with young kids ,my son loved it here.
Out and about ..
Beach is five mins away , you need to walk up the beach a little though to get the nicer bit , clean, sea is lovely shallow and calm. The supermarket is a few mins away and shops, bars and restaraunts are all within a short walk with some great places to eat , Popeye's doesnt look much but the food is great , Giorgio's is a gorgous Italian with reasonable price's. All in all we had a great holiday the resort itself is really nice , the local's are friendly and not too pushy ,I would definetly go back , great value for the money.

Bit long winded but I couldnt find that many reviews when I was looking

Room Tip: The rooms behind reception fcing the pool will probably be the quietest.

This hotel is a good base for seeing the sights of tsilivi, there are several good resterants and if your looking for a good night out, THE RED LION is well worth a visit as it's under new managment.
Theana & nikos will make you feel at home, all the staff are very friendly and welcomeing to all.
There is a play area for the kids and a resturant but it was not open when I was there. call in and say hellow you won't be dissapointed.

Have just returned from the Planos Aparthotel (20th May 2012) On arrival staff very helpful and cheerful was given apart opp reception area this was NOT GOOD because there was a piece of land at the back and down the side of our apart which we did not notice first night. The apart was very clean adequate size with four single beds there was only the two of us!! Bathroom great and looked very fresh and new. Well equip kitchen, wardrobe next to sink opp bathroom not very big for 4 people tho. Unfortunately that was the good stuff because after the first night we had dogs barking 24/7 (10 in all 4 adults and 6, yes 6 puppies!!), cats, ducks, turkeys and to top it all a cockrill at 5.30am not good after a night out, we were absolutely exhausted after two days, a complaint to the rep(Colin a scottish guy) at the meeting after the first night waste of time, we did lodge a comp at reception too, so did lots of others!
The pool is good and snack bar very reasonable just basic, burgers sands etc, no entertainment but you can go to the sister hotel opp. Maid service great clean sheets once and plenty of towels and loo rolls, very handy for beach,(beach wasnt brill but you can walk further along and find better beaches and use loungers where they have raked the sand each morning of pebbles and any rubbish, but be aware they do charge even if you are drinking) shops, bars and restaurants all close by some great bars (Two Brothers and Arc) lovely Greek restaurants with lovely people so eagar to please (We love Greek food).

Room Tip: Just make sure you dont get in the block opposite the reception area we where on the end of the bloc...

First time in Greece for a few years and the accommodation is much improved. Our room was great (527), had a good bathroom and plenty of space for 2 adults and 1 child. A maid came in every day to clean up and the only issue was that the TV reception was poor. That would never normally bother us except the Champions League final was on! The pool was good and our 4 year old loved it. There were plenty of sunbeds although I would guess in high season you'd need to get your towell on early - multi nationalities on site, say no more! We had minimal dealings with the staff but those we did speak to were helpful. The location is good too, on a quiet side street, near the beach and a supermarket, taverna (recommend Stamnes just round the corner). You could also use the facilities of five other sister hotels if you wanted although we did not. All in all very happy.

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 :)
