This review is long and should be read in its entirety to get the full picture.
This is a great hotel; we had a wonderful time with the service from the staff being Excellent. It is an All Inclusive Hotel and we found the food and drinks very good.
On the down side something should have been done about the Shower and Bathroom facilities.
The shower head is on the side wall and the towel rail is on the end wall close to the taps. The poor design of the bath does not help. As a consequence getting a shower means that water is channelled on to the floor causing most of the floor to be wet, even though there is a floor drain. Apparently everyone comments on this aspect.
The sun beds are another matter. We found that some people reserved up to 4 sun beds near the beach and around the pool, sometimes not using two or more of the reserved beds all day. This was attributed to both English and East European holidaymakers.
We enjoyed having the themed meals in the beach restaurant which you had to book at no extra cost. However, on the day of the Mediterranean Meal. We all sat having our drinks waiting for the doors to open, usually all waiting an extra minute or so before entering the food area to select collect our food.
However on this day as soon as the doors opened a constant stream of people came up the path from the beach and proceeded to demolish the food like a hoard of locusts, coming out with the cakes and sweets first, then the chips and then the main courses having plates piled high.
We found out during the course of this disastrous meal that the owner of the hotel had Bussed these East Europeans from one of his other 8 hotels (he also owns the Waterpark).
During our time in Tsilivi, we found that All Inclusive hotels are harming the economy of this area. Most of the East Europeans (in the majority in this hotel) do not leave the all-inclusive hotels so do not contribute to the local economy, let’s face it if you are being fed and watered for the cost of the holiday why would you need to spend money outside.
Thanks for reading.
