Chav Heaven!

Cheap and cheerful, modern and clean, basic and small. Suitable for 2 people only, they have the same rooms throughout which are one bedroom self catering apartments. This comprises of 1 bathroom with either a corner shower or bath with shower over, wardrobes in the entrance/corridor area, a bedroom with twin (hard as a park bench) beds and a kitchenette... this is where the problem lies as if there are more than 2 of you there are beds in the kitchen! Air con is available at an extra charge, was 5 euro per day, but its only in the bedroom, so if someone has to sleep in the kitchen they don’t benefit. There’s also no natural light in any of the rooms other than the bedroom, which is very depressing. Our room overlooked the pool so no lie-in, kids are out from silly o’clock shouting and screaming in the pool. It’s chav heaven in this hotel/apartment as towels are out from 3am!!! Not enough sunbeds, I counted 40 at most and even saw one man stashing the things on his balcony and bringing them down in the morning just to guarantee a bed! The pool is far too small for the amount of residents. Good news is that you can use the facilities of neighbouring hotels, Admiral (full of Russian’s, Dutch and German’s) or Planos Bay which is a First Choice Hotel and has more UK residents staying.

The location is fantastic, 5 mins from the beach and plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops right on the doorstep. Also an ATM cash machine no more than a 2 min stroll from the hotel door.

This hotel/apartment is what it is, cheap! Therefore it attracts those who are less well off... need I say more? Want a classy holiday then book elsewhere, want a cheap and cheerful deal and here will do 2 of you fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view away from the farm!

Just got back after a week at this resort with my girlfriend ... Firstly as mentioned by other reviewers this is standard Greek Self Catering accomodation. The rooms are basic but very clean. they are well looked after (maid service daily) Aircon works great but you pay for it. and all the facilities and Staff are good. It is a well run basic spot and you get what you pay for.
Location wise it's also very good,a 5 minute walk from the beach (if that) and about a 10 minute walk into the main drag of Tsilivi.
If you are eating out I'd recommend a small resturant called Mythos down by the beach the food there is fantastic and the head waiter Jannis is a fantastic character and was by far the best food and value we had whilst there...

My Only gripe would be that Planos although very family orientated around the pool the resort appears too have many people visiting from 1980's Yorkshire (not that theres anything wrong with either !!) ...... Towels are on sunbed's before 8am most morning yet most of the beds are free of the ghost towel owners till mid day or later... I always thought that was a german problem.. how wrong I was....

All in all a good place at a good price and the staff are very helpful... But if you want a couples break...without hyper active kid's going nulcear while the parent's shout after them all day..you might want somewhere a little more upmarket....still for the money its great value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool and not on the first floor...unless Carpark view's are you're...

3 of us have just spent 2 weeks here and it has been cramped. The only place to put our cases was on the 4th bed. Had to live out of cases as only a wardrobe to put clothing. No shelves, cupboards etc. Air con (which we needed) was €5 per day and only in the main bedroom. The shower flooded the bathroom every time. However it is really clean and maid service every day. Towels and linen changed regularly. Pool area clean although snack bar service slow with mundane food. Beware of cleaners hosing down pool area in mornings as they are not bothered if they wet you or your towel. Free wi-fi in reception area. We had a car for 4 days and it was only €100 with fully comp no excess insurance from Margaris rent a car. They are the first car hire place as you turn left..they had books outside which you can swap...def recommend them.

Booked a 2nd weeks holiday while already in tsilivi and couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough they helped us book in at short notice and it was fantastic value for money, only slight problem was the beds, which weren't very comfortable but not a big deal, the location is great to explore tsilivi and you have access to the planos bay across the street which had great facilities for kids, would go back for sure mainly because the value for money.

Just spent a week there recently with my daughter and we were both pleasantly surprised by the room standard and the facilities around the pool. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely consider this again. The beach is literally 2 mins walk with bars and restaurants similar.
