We have travelled to Tsilivi many times and wished we had stayed here before.
We took a Taxi from the Airport which only cost 20 euros, well worth it, took only 15/20 minutes to get to the Hotel, so no stopping at every Hotel as you would on Coach Transfers.
On arrival we had a lovely welcome from Sophie the Receptionist and also Eleni.
The first room we were given was nice but small and therefore was grateful Sophie was able to give us a larger room the next day in the new part of the Hotel on the top floor. The room was perfect, with stunning sea views, which were great any time of day. The cleaniness of the room was excellant, I spilt a little sun cream on the floor, cleaned this up with tissue, the tissue was still white not one spot of dirt was found.
We ate dinner a couple of times in the evening at the Hotel and the food we had was really nice. The House Wine was not so good, recommend buying a bottle. The Sun Sets are breath taking.
Breakfast was OK, the same every morning choice of fruit, greek yoghurt honey, jams etc, cereal, cheese, meat, tomatoes, olives feta cheese, bread, bread rolls, pastries and cakes, pizza, boiled egg, bacon and I think omelette/scrambled egg, didn't look very tempting so didn;t fancy that. Found the area too small you were restricted reaching the food. Health & Safety would have a field day with the electric kettle which was on the top tier of the tables, you had to reach over the food to get to the kettle and you had to be tall. The best part of breakfast was sitting outside in the shade eating your breakfast looking out at the sea views.
Getting to the Beach down the steps is an experience, not just that there are no further steps as you get down to the beach and have to struggle the last bit, but also because in the Garden of the property that joins the steps and beach are 3 Alsatians loose in the grounds, they suddenly appear as you are walking down the steps or along side the property and start barking at you, without fail they always made me jump. We found ourselves creeping quietely down the steps hoping we wouldn't be spotted.
In the evenings we walked into Tsilivi but always got a taxi or horse and cart back. The Hill to the Hotel was a killer!!
We had a lovely time here and would certainly go back again all the Staff were lovely.
