“brilliant holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

just stayed at tom and johns in july 2012 and had a fantastic time the appartments were basic and clean,the bathroom was quite spacious with a shower in,didnt have a shower curtain so floor got quite wet but a mop and bucket was left for you if needed,the beds were quite hard but soon got used to that,air conditioning was ten euros a day which is about average price.we stayed in a two bedroom apartment and was told we might need to pay for air conditioning in both rooms but we found out if we left both bedroom doors open the air conditioning circulated through the two rooms.safe boxes are available for ten euros for a week but these are in the shop so you can only access these when the shop is open [between 9 and 7].you need to try levante day trips if wanting a day out with captain spiros these are deffinatly the best in tsilivi.would deffinatly recommend tom and johns to anybody.

We we're the first guests of the season in May 2012- we had a clean appartment with a balcony. The maid attended most days and provided clean towels. The appartment was very basic little studio kitchen with kettle and sandwich toaster and fridge and two single beds rather than a double, with a little balcony. The fridge was very very noisy at night as it made a loud rattling noise every few minuets. However we still really enjoyed our stay at Tom and Johns. Ava who worked in the bar/pool area across the road was very friendly and made sure you had everything you needed, including lovely cocktails! The appartments are a short walk from the beach and the many bars and restaurants in Tsilvi- we quite often went to the beach in the morning and wandered back for the afternoon sun by the pool. They also do bar snacks, we ate there once, and shared a burger and a chicken salad which was fine for a quick and easy lunch.

We have just returned from a 10 night stay and overall had a lovely time.

The apartments are very basic but spotless, with clean sheets and towels twice a week. They are so close to the beach, perfect when travelling with kids. The area is nice and quiet despite being so close to all the bars and restaurants. We went bed and breakfast and the couple running the pool bar opposite do all they can to make your stay as pleasant as they can offering literally anything you want for breakfast. We didn't go every day as sometimes wanted an early start and they were really concerned that their breakfasts weren't 'up to scratch'.. it was so important to them that we enjoyed our food - and we did.

When we initially arrived, we didn't have a cot despite requesting it on the booking form, the owner said he didn't know we wanted one, (even though it was right there in front of him on the form) he did find us one though and told me to take the sheets of one of the beds to use with it. There was no mattress on the cot so I had to use a folded blanket for cushioning - not ideal but, it was better than nothing.

A few other niggles about the accommodation .. there is no bath, only a shower over a tray with no shower curtain.. it would have helped if the shower head worked properly but it leaked and spurted in every direction...with four people sharing, there was a lot of water paddling about each evening, my 2 year old slipped on the floor on several occasions despite trying to mop up continuously, it was quite frustrating and caused extra work each evening mopping the floors. The showers were also cold on several occasions - if you hadn't showered by 5pm - forget the hot water! We had a two bedroomed apartment but there is no 'living' area. If you didn't want to sit on a bed, it had to be out on the balcony. Only one bedroom had a door, the one adjoining the kitchen / bathroom was open plan which wasn't ideal with a young teen. The beds were also incredibly hard.

Tsilivi was lovely but a lot quieter than expected.. lots of bars, shops and restaurants but very empty. We would go again but wouldn't stay at Tom and John's. Would definitely return to the pool bar though for breakfast - the couple there really were lovely.

My wife and I just returned from a weeks stay. What a lovely relaxing holiday. We got a taxi to the apartments, saves going round different hotels. Our room was above the shop, but don't let that put you off. We went into the shop and was greeted by John, checked in and went to our room. Dropped off the cases and went across the road to the bar and pool (all part of the centre) there we met Yanos and Ava. Two of the most fantastic people you could ever meet. Yanos would cook the breakfast in the mornings, if he had to pop out then Ava would step in. If your not staying here and walk past there on your way to the beach pop in for breakfast, they really go out of their way to make your day pleasent, they are a real asset to Tom and John's centre. Everybody no matter where you eat are genuinely very friendly and glad to see you. We tried a different restaurant and bars every night and the food and drink was great (never had a bad meal) The beach is a one minute walk from the centre, both this and the sea is clean. The main high street where we would eat at night is a five minute walk away.

The apartment is clean and tidy although a beds was very hard, kettle, two ring electric hob and sandwich toaster are supplied but we only used the kettle. When you speak to other holiday makers 75 % of them have stayed in the area before and 40% go twice a year.
We will be going back next year and I only hope Yanos and Ava are still running the snack and drinks bar by the pool. Thank you John, Yanos and Ava and every one else we met on our weeks holiday. Hope to see you soon . Glenn and Gaynor .

Room Tip: Don't worry there all nice and it's very quiet at night

My girlfriend and i have just returned from a wonderful relaxing 2 week holiday staying at the tom and john centre.
The apartment was very clean. The whole complex has had a repaint and is kept very clean. We had a wonderful sea view. The area is nice and quiet but not too far away from the main areas of tsilivi. The walk to the beach really is less than 2 mins. John (one of the owners) is a very pleasant and a very approachable man.
I will definitely be returning here again and would highly recommend it, especially for middle aged couples who like to relax.

I arrived at the accomodation at 6am following a night flight with two small children. I had booked the accomodation the day before we arrived and sent an email to the centre explaining that we had a late flight and wondered if we could check-in prior to the usual 2pm check-in time. Upon arrival we were greeted by Tom who had arranged our accomodation to be avaliable at 8am (he also placed us in a the room next to the family we had flown out to join). We found the whole experience delightful.

The accomodation was very clean (but basic). Everything we needed was there.

The accomodation is in a truely great location, two minutes from the beach (which has a blue flag award), two minutes from bars, shops and resturants and seconds from the pool (which also has a small childrens pool, park and served decent poolside food). The pool staff also arranged a taxi to take us to the airport for our return flight.

We would certainly recommend and would stay here again ourselves.
