We stayed at the Zante Maris in the last two weeks of August. This hotel was definitely not 4 star...even for greek standards. The positive was that the hotel was situated right on the beach. The beach could have been lovely but was covered in litter (especially cigarette butts) which of course my 14 month old loved to pick up and shove in his mouth. It was also crammed with sunbeds which left very little room for children to play. The towels on sunbed situation was ridiculous, I could not believe that you had to resort to getting up at 6am to reserve your sunbed!!! and even then a good few were already taken!. The hotel room was basic but very clean, the bathroom was in very poor condition and was absolutely tiny. The bath was all stained which made it look dirty even after it had been cleaned, for some bizarre reason there was a phone right next to the shower which had fallen off leaving a wire exposed....not the safest place!. The evening entertainment was pretty awful (bingo / pop quizes / elvis impersonater). The food was the WORST food I have EVER had. We unfortuantely booked half board, ate there on the first evening at that was it ......it 's what you imagine prison slop to be like. Some of the staff were really friendly....but there only seemed to be 3 waiters who were not very friendly and hardly said a word to you. Even so we did have a very enjoyable holiday. Tsilivi as a resort was not really our 'cup of tea' with every bar having large screens with football / only fools and horses or some other old english programmes playing. It is definitely not a traditional greek place to visit, there was no character at all.
