“Mavrikos, the very friendly family hotel”
Reviewed 22 September 2009

Again we spend two fantastic weeks in the Mavrikos hotel. Marianna, John and all the staff make you feel very welcome. LIke they are really happy to see you!
Rooms are clean, fresh towels every day and any kind of problem will be solved immediately.
We would like to say a word about the cats, we know that some guests do not appreciate the cats being around, but even if you don't like them, they only show up occasionally. Marianna should be an example for most of us, she cares about animals, feels responsable and feeds them, because nobody else will!! We respect her for that.
Looking forward to go back next year !

we have been holidaying at the Mavrikos twice a year for the past 20 years since the hotel first opened. I think that says it all. We have seen lots of changes at the hotel and in the village, not always for the best. We have made many lasting friendships with people returning as we do.The bar staff,Jean, Keith, Gabi and Eva are all great fun, if you're prepared to join in and have a laugh,and they,re willing to do anything to help in any way they can. The owners, Johnand Marianna and their daughters Roi and Lenya are always available and we know they have helped many tourists out of trouble but they do not receive the respect and thanks they deserve.The cleaners are all trustworthy and work hard and are under pressure to cleanthe hotel from top to bottom every day, rarely receiving any thanks. We would like to thank John,Marianna and their staff once again for another great holiday and this Geordie boy will be back. (with his wife)

Never been there before - so I'm not in any 'click' - and think maybe those who imagined that there was a 'click' may just be anti social and unable to get along with fellow holiday makers. And how anyone can say that Jean is grumpy - you're having a laugh! My two teenage boys loved her - said she made the holiday!
And our rooms were clean and tidy - can't believe that some of the reviews I have read are about the same place!

we were totally impressed with the hotel and the service we received, couldnt have been better. special thanks to keith and gabi behind the bar, who we shared many a laugh with. and also our lancashire lass jean who we had many a giggle with. many thanks to keith for our trip around the island and our transfer to the airport.nothing was too much trouble for these three stars. we are definately coming back next year and look forward to seeing you all again we had a terrific holiday and would definately reccommend this hotel to anyone who wants a spotlessly clean and super friendly hotel. see you all next year. jackie and pete , manchester

Went for 2 weeks didn't see a cloud,weather mid 40's..
Service at reception was ok not great, room was a bit small but quite clean ,it was cleaned every day sheets changed once a week. The hotel pool bar staff were the best and the pool was great.
Location was good, situated just off the end of the main strip and about 10 mins walk from the beach and 2 mins walk away.from the super market .
Lots do do in Tsilivi, water sports on the beach, crazy golf lots of boat trips to go on" make sure you see the ship wreck and go turtle spoting" , also not far from the main water park.
