“Would return tomorrow if we could”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2010

Just back from Tsaki Sea View Complex II and absolutely loved it. Paul behind the bar is a very pleasant chap even though he doesn't like making chocolate milkshakes!!Agree that maid service not good, toilet bin only emptied when requested on day 5, same with towels. Bathroom floor does get slippery as shower curtain not long enough to stop water going onto floor - that is the downside so will take a magic mop up sponge next time.

The view from our balcony was amazing, 180 degree view of sea and mountains, the beds are very comfortable and the pool out of this world. The gardens surrounding complex are lovely, we had fresh lemon for our drinks picked straight from the tree!

The walk down the hill to main road is steep but no problem even for a senior citizen like me. You have to watch it on the main road because traffic is fast and there is no path, just keep in single file facing traffic. The buses go to Benitses from bottom of the hill on the opposite side of the road and are very cheap 1.30 euros single compared to 8 euros for a taxi. Taxi is handy if you go into Benitses to do a lot of shopping as you get a ride up the hill with your heavy bags that way.

If you want to shop in a friendly place just turn right at the bottom of the hill and go to the little supermarket a short way past the taverna. Peter is lovely, and gave my daughter and I a drink of orange because we were hot.

The sunrises were wonderful. Even though we were up early we sat on the balcony until after midnight just watching little boats go out fishing or cruise liners in the distance because it was so relaxing. Had a couple of drinks down in the bar chatting to other guests and everyone was friendly. It is just the place to be if you want a holiday that helps you to unwind rather than lots of entertainment. Loved it and hope to return again soon to take my husband and show him how wonderful it was. It was exceptionally hot while we there - upper 30's to mid 40's - as an old codger I think better in fahrenheit and in the midday sun it was 127F and that's where that superb pool came in.

You know why I loved this place? It was very good value for money! I think I paid something like £220pp when I took my then boyfriend (now husband) there in 2007 in PEAK summer time, it was a pretty basic room but a room was all we needed. We were there 1 week, granted our room was not cleaned and our towels were not changed but seriously..who cares?! We only wanted a place we could rest our heads because we were out from dawn til way into the night. It was a quiet location - albeit a trek if you're on foot but car/ped/quad rental is so cheap there really is no need! It is very quiet which was lovely.

Basically, if you're expecting the Ritz, I wouldn't book here, pay a little extra and go somewhere else. But if you only need a cheap, no frills base to keep your stuff and to rest your head at night, this is the one for you. The staff here couldn't be more helpful.

Oh..and we were very popular with the mosquito's but it still didn't dampen our great holiday.

just returned from a weeks stay at Tsaki Sea View Complex and I have to say, was slightly disappointed after reading the reviews beforehand. The studio apartment we stayed in was average Greek basic and was clean BUT if you miss the maids, as we did one morning you've had it because they dont return! it meant that we only had our room cleaned once during the week. Also you will need to take your own large towel for the shower because only 1 small hand towel each was supplied, when we asked for a larger towel we were told they only supply the one size. Been having Self Catering holidays in Greece now for over 10 years and never had to buy our own toilet rolls, but you do at the Tsaki (just a small gripe). What can I say about the location apart from the fact that it really is a 20 mins plus trek into town along the main road-thats after the 5 mins walk to the road down the steepest country lane you can possibly imaging-kept us fit going back up from the bus stop. Taxis cost 8 euros which saves the climb back, but not your holiday money. Our pick up for the airport was at 3a.m. and had to be out of the room by 12 midday, but had to pay 20 euros to keep the room until 8pm - what a wait it was too! We actually paid for a 7 night holiday, but got a 6 night stay 'cos the first night on the flight is counted as your 1st night - thanks Olympic, what a con.

Last but not least Tsaki would be a relaxing place to stay if you're lucky enough to have other guests that want to relax too rather than people who should have chosen the more lively resorts of Kavos, Malia or Benidorm where they can shout and holler and make as much noise as they like, and not consider anyone elses holiday-but hey you cant choose your fellow guests unfortunately.
