“Lovely and quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We enjoyed a lovely peaceful break at this hotel for a week commencing 27 September 2012, the room was more than adequate with a stunning sea view. The receptionist Eleni who speaks perfect English was extremely helpful and pleasant and we also found the rest of the staff in the dining room and bar to be very personable.
The all inclusive fare was very good with plenty of choice and the wine on tap was drinkable. The bar closed a little early and entertainment was extremely limited not adult themed but this wasn't too much of a problem as we quickly became chilled out and went with the flow.
Never had a problem with sunbeds and we tended to use the new decking area near to the pool bar which was nice and relaxing with ice cream and snacks at hand.
No decent beach but plenty of people were swimming and snorkelling from the platform/rocks.
Tsilivi is walkable, we only went once and took a taxi one night for a change of scenery there are a few bars etc but it was quietish when we went.
The big plus for us was the weather, don't recall seeing a cloud throughout the week yet it was cool on a couple of the evenings.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view on the upper floor.

"Dear guest,

The pool has a shallow as well as a deep end, the former being around 1,50m and the latter being above 2m.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for your first visit to the Louis Plagos Beach in June.

We were part of a party of forty attending our daughters wedding and we were there for seven days - we found the rooms to be very clean and catered for all our needs - the staff at the hotel were all helpful and friendly - we were all inclusive and found the meals to be exceptional with plenty of choice - there was always a supply of food available in the way of main meals and snacks - the bars and bar staff we found also to be very good - the only thing we felt that let the hotel down was a lack of entertainment and feel this could be improved on - the day of the wedding went very smoothly and we all had an excellent day - would definitely return.

Room Tip: sea view are excellent but out of school holidays, be aware lots of steps but worth the walk.

Just returned from the Plagos Beech 09/10/12 the hotel and staff are great .The room we stayed in was a seaview room which was great but a little tired but was told they were being re-furbished at the end of the season so next year they should be spot on.The rooms were cleaned daily and towels and bed sheets every other day.The food was excellent lots of different choices although you did get your whingers saying it wasnt hot enough but we never had that problem.There is no beech as such but there is a jetty which you can swim off which is great ,but could do with being a little bit longer so when you get in the sea your past the rocks, i didnt have a problem but some of the senior citizens did.The last 4 days of the holiday was the best as there was only 20 guests left in the hotel and no ignorant POLISH .

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are the best ,but ask for the middle or top floor rooms .

What can I say about the Louis Plagos Beach that has not already been said,on arrival we were by the lovely receptionist Eleni who booked us in and gave us some information about the hotel and then arranged for our luggage to be taken to our room.The room was just perfect with a lovely sea view which we had requested when we book a few days before we travelled,as we had arrived as lunch was still being served we went to the restaurant for some lunch and was greeted by Takis the restaurant manager who took us to our table we then went to view what was on offer it was amazing the ammount of food and different dishes on offer,and this was to be the case breakfast,lunch and dinner the 11 days we were there.All of the staff were very friendly and helpfull at all times. Takis who I have already mentioned told is was also a farmer with olive groves which he starts harvesting when the hotel shuts down for the winter,then there was Alexander the barman lovely guy an asset to any hotel .Most of the entertainmet was organized by the animation whom were Romainian Leana & Sammie they worked there sock of to get people invoved in different acctivities without being to intrusive,for anyone with young children they were godsend as they looked after and kept the kids entertained the kids loved them.All told the holiday was lovely if anything the hotel could do with some proffesional entertainment as the nearest town was about three killometers away.As is mentioned the hotel does not have its own beach but Amboula Beach is just 50 yards to the right,but if you turn right on the main road as you leave the hotel and take the next right at the crossroads in Trsgaki and follow this road it will take to an amazing beach,the walk takes about 45 minutes.And yes would certainly come to this hotel again.Down marking for sleep quality was decause of tempreture 20 degees at night.

Just returned from 11 nights at the Louis Plagos Beach Hotel.
On arrival, we had to wait one & half hours for our room, which was disappointing as it was about one in the afternoon & this holiday had been booked for our Anniversary.
Although the bedroom was smaller than expected, it was adequate & very clean. The air conditioning was turned off for this time of year, despite the brochure not saying this. This was quickly resolved & we were given a fan. The only other negative was the mattress was exceptionally hard, despite us liking a firm one.
I must say that we have stayed in some lovely five star accommodation, in the Caribbean, but this is the best holiday we have ever had. Nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks go to the following people who are a credit to your Company. Eleni in reception. A first class asset. We mentioned that a couple on the bus, on the way to Zante, had recommended a lovely restaurant to go to for our Anniversary. We knew the location, but not the name. We also knew which hotel recommended the restaurant to the couple we met. She managed to find out the details for us & even gave instructions to the taxi driver to ask the restaurant to make this a very special evening for us & to give us the best table. The hotel even gave us a bottle of champagne. We had the best anniversary ever.
I would add at this stage, that the food at this hotel is excellent, with a wonderful choice. Lots of fresh vegetables, show cooking nightly & even cheese & biscuits. Even a microwave was provided, which as I like my food piping was an added bonus.
The second outstanding member of staff is Takis. Nothing was too much trouble for him. For example, one day, we asked do you have any pink grapefruit this morning & minutes later it was prepared & delivered. He was so polite & friendly with good English. He also gave us valuable advice.
The weather averaged 31 degrees during our visit, which was fantastic.
We both loved this holiday & didn't want I come home.
Hopefully, next year, we will be back again.

Room Tip: We had room number 728, with a lovely sea view
