These apartments have huge potential due to the location and the excellent staff. Unfortunately, due to penny pinching by the owners and their reluctance to deal with loutish behaviour of some of the clientele, it will never reach its full potential. We booked two weeks self-catering here due to the very reasonable price, despite some bad reviews, which you will always get and we have found groundless when booking other holidays. However, our experiences echo that of previous negative reviewers. Our first bad experience came almost immediately we entered the apartment. I placed our toiletries on the windowsill in the shower room which my partner decided was the wrong place for them. When she came to move them, the unrestrained window, which drops downward, opened, narrowly missing her head/face. If the window had hit her it would have caused serious injury. I immediately went down and reported this to the management and was told that they would fix this at the earliest opportunity. My conversation was overheard by another customer, who informed me that the previous occupants had also complained of this. It was repaired four days later.
The object of specifying self-catering is that you can cater for yourself if you wish, thereby saving on the not inconsiderable cost of eating out all the time. The management, either through design or simply through the aforementioned penny pinching, make this option very difficult due to the lack of equipment. We attempted to boil some eggs on the ancient two ringed portable electric cooker which we found under the sink. Whilst we were waiting for the eggs we retired to the lovely balcony to enjoy a glass of wine. We heard a loud bang, which my partner assumed was one of the eggs exploding. I went to investigate and found that the eggs were OK but that the cooker and lights in the apartment were not working. Upon checking the fuse box, I found that one of the circuit breakers had tripped and switched it back to no effect. I asked next door if their electric was also off and they confirmed this. Another trip to the management! The guy went to the main switch board on the landing, flicked a switch and normal service was resumed. A couple of days later I attempted to cook some spaghetti, but when I plugged in the cooker a shower of sparks came out of the plug and once again the entire floor was without power. Yet another trip to the management! The rings were replaced and we continued our cooking.
All this does sound depressing but in reality it wasn’t so bad. The plus points are that the apartments are situated in a perfect place, right In the middle of the town. The pool area is wonderful, spotlessly clean and regularly cleaned by the staff. The rooms, like the pool are spotless, cleaned every day, with sheets and towels replaced every two to three days. The pool bar is very reasonably priced, both for the food and the drinks. The staff are wonderful and are eager to please everybody and although the rooms are basic and could do with some TLC, for the price we paid we got what we paid for. My advice is to go out and explore the lovely town of Tsilivi and if possible, hire a care and discover the beautiful island of Zakynthos.
