Ariadne Hotel Apartments
Ranked #21 of 51 Hotels in Tsilivi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 7, 2014

My boyfriend and I first stayed at the Ariadne in June 2010 for two weeks. Those two weeks were fantastic and we were so pleased with our holiday that I reviewed it on here soon after our return - I had to recommend to others!
We have returned to the Ariadne every year since to enjoy two weeks on this beautiful island. The Ariadne Hotel is always kept clean, the rooms are spacious and all have a superb sea view. As I said in my previous review, the kitchenette has everything you need - fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, enough utensils, plates, glasses and cutlery for the number of people staying in the room, and the bathroom is kept clean - what more do you need? Towels and bed sheets are changed every few days and the rooms cleaned daily. The pool area is immaculate and is Kostas' pride and joy. There are always plenty of sunbeds and a refreshing pool to take a dip in to cool off.
The pool bar is spacious, with plenty of entertainment (pool, TV, music, books, food & drink, WiFi) and Pamela is always there to welcome you. BBQ night and Rock night are brilliant and great to get to know other people staying at the hotel. The family provide some great entertainment and always ensure that everyone is having a good time. Pamela and Giannis' daughter Elena is such a delight and much like her parents and grandparents (Kostas and Helen) - always welcomes you with a smile!
The location of the hotel is ideal if you like to be away from the main strip - but close enough that you are just a few minutes walk from the nearest bars, shops and restaurants when you need them. The beach is just a 10 minute walk.
Last year we returned with some of our family - after hearing about what a wonderful place it is from us three years in a row, they joined us out there and loved it too!
There's so much to do on the island also - such as visiting the shipwreck, turtle island, the blue caves, keri caves, gerekas beach, waterparks (Tsilivi opened its own waterpark in 2011, and there is another on the island) plus there are lots of other pretty villages and beaches - you won't be disappointed.
Just take a look through all the other wonderful reviews and you can be assured that this is a fantastic place to go.
We have just booked another two weeks holiday here in June 2014 and can't wait to go back.
A huge thank you to all the family for your hospitality - see you all again soon!

Ariadne's Apartments in Tsilivi is a very welcoming place to stay, and we would really like to go back soon. It is very clean,the staff are lovely and the food in the pool bar is good.Especially if you like your "British fry up" even down to Heinz baked beans!.The views superb! though you do need to walk up a hill to get there, it's worth it.

Booked here on the recommendation of a friend (big thanks for that) the hotel is set back away from the town and is perfectly secluded whilst still only a 2 minute walk to the best supermarkets and restaurants.
Yes its on a hill but its a small price to pay for the fantastic views of Tsilivi town and sea front and to be quite honest after all the Gyro's and ice creams you need something more than a lounge round the pool to burn it off!
The owners themselves are super hard working, friendly and very approachable which adds a very homely/personal feel to your stay, unlike most hotels where the staff are courteous because they are paid to be so.
everywhere is immaculately clean and the food was better than some of the more expensive restaurants we went to
They have a Greek style barbecue for all the guests midweek which also served as a great ice breaker and there's a live band Friday nights for those who like a bit of singing and dancing :-)
the hotel was fully booked throughout our stay but there was always plenty of sun loungers available. fantastic stay and we'll definitely be back again couldn't recommend it high enough

Room Tip: book early as they operate a strict first come first served policy. we booked over a year in advance...

This place is excellent, friendly staff, nice pool, chilled out atmosphere, not far from the town centre or the beach! Stayed here for two weeks and loved it. The Greek night is a good laugh and rock night is a good one for the oldies. Would highly recommend!

After being very specific on what we were after when booking our holiday, we were recommended the Ariadne Hotel. We read the reviews and seeing how positive they were, things were looking positive.

What a lovely place, just what we wanted.

The family were very welcoming, they were always around by the pool bar at all times of the day. They helped us with all our enquirers and recommended good places to see and eat, they were even more helpful then our thomson rep!

The hotel was very clean, the pool and rooms. Towels and bedding was changed every other day which was fantastic, The rooms cleaned everyday...(be careful though the maids steal your carrier bags so hide them).

Pool area was great, always a sunbed free, whatever time of day! Made you feel very welcome!! Lots of inflatables available so good fun.Ella (the owners daughter) is always around saying hi and playing with all the kids! Food was also good value for money throughout the day :)

BBQ and Rock and roll nights were great fun!!! It was nice to get involved with the hotel, meet other people and have a taste of the greek life. Very good value for money the bbq and a lovely to all get up dancing together.

The hotel offers air con and safety deposit boxes at good prices. Even though we got a safety deposit box just in case, the area felt safe and we left our balcony doors open all the time. The rooms were always cool as the sun never faced them so didn't need air con.

The Hill- Yes there is a bit of a hill to the hotel from the town, but it meant the hotel was away from all the noise at night and you could burn off your dinner. It was a bit hard in the heat but I am not the fittest and at night, it was fine!!

The town Tsilivi itself was lovely!! Great for food (lots of choice) and for drinks. It isn't the most party town but we were not looking for that and still there was night clubs available. The deals are good, food and drink was good prices.

All in all, a great holiday for families, couples or friends for a quiet get away!!

ps- lovely views from the hotel! The up side of the hill!!

The hotel is extremely clean . The pool and surrounding pool area are kept spotless along with pool toilets and bar area .
BBQ night and the rock night are a must both the food and the entertainment are exceptional .
The family who run the hotel go out of their way to make you feel at home .
During our stay we enjoyed breakfast and lunches at the hotels pool bar , there is a great selection of fresh food which is always cooked fresh to order .
We really enjoyed our stay and was sad to have to leave a week was not enough we hope to return next year for a two week stay .

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Ariadne Hotel and I cannot fault it. The hotel is spotless and the room we had was huge with a large balcony. Rooms were cleaned everyday. The pool was great with more than enough sun beds. BBQ night was great-great food and Greek dancing! The hill is ther but what can you do, without it there wouldn't be the great view or the gentle breeze that keeps you cool.

Room Tip: Book the 1 bedroom apartment. Comfortably sleep 4, comes with microwave, toaster and fridge freezer.
