Excellent, thanks Carole.... looking forward to trying the bars and appreciate the shortcut!!! Yammas!!!!
Returned from Tsilivi 12th August used Libra appartments several times. We had a great holiday and appartments were what you expect in Greece clean but basic but at the end of the day you only sleep in them. We did discover that if you want clean towels you have to leave dirty ones on the floor not dry and folded up like we did! Pool was nice and not a rush on sunbeds could do with some mats to lie on. the family are lovely Thassos the son of one of the sisters is going to be an olympic swimmer or be in charge of 18-30 events when old enough!! The hill is not too bad if you cut through the bar we managed it and as our kids say we are old!!! Try the Drunk Moon Bar and then the hill is no problem!!!
me and my husband had a great time it was very simple something were not use to here in england but we went for the sun and a good time and tsillvi is a great place good for kids to. nice food english mexicon indian chinese and greek, beach 10min walk and the shops restaurants and pubs 10min walk to have a good night, they do serve lovely english breakfast and try there best to meet our needs and if you think it is not good enough then pay more and go somewhere better but the only thing you do in your apartment is sleep shower and dress to go out so why complain enjoy when l came home and told my kids all about my holiday my sons Krishan , Amar, Rahul and daughter Lakiesha cant wait to go so l am booking another holiday there now that l now were to take my kidsand all the layout of the resort.
We've just had a lovely holiday in Callinika 3 in Planos,Tsilivi. The rooms are Greek-therefore basic but clean & spacious enough. Our balcony(room 8) had a sea view-amazing to wake up to. Had some fantastic meals-best in the Fat Olive's restaurant only 2 mins down the road into town(on the corner by the Jupiter Hotel & the Jewellery shop)-delicious food, fresh veg, extensive menu, & excellent service. Also the Menih restaurant on one of the roads down to the beach-food delicious & varied, service excellent. Went on trips with Dionisos tours as advised in previous comments on this site-worth every cent! Went to Olympia for the day-absolutely awesome-the history just seeps through, advise going back into the sight after lunch rather than shopping in the town though. Also did the half day shipwreck beach boat trip-great guide Chris,very amusing! Lovely swims off the boat. (Wouldn't bother with the shopping trip to Zante town though-enough time to shop & have a meal!) Worth walking along the beach to find great bars.
Just arrived home from staying at the callinica 3 appartments. It was a lovely holiday. It is Greece, therefore expect basic accomodation. This was our third time to a Greek island, and the accomodation was the best we've stayed in! There is no air conditioning, which we could have done with, as at this time of year the temperatures were reaching the 40's during the day! We did hire a fan for 20 Euros for two weeks, that did help! The apartments were clean, nice balcony overlooking the sea. The pool was lovely, with a great little bar for drinks and snacks. The family running the place were very friendly, and would sort any problems out. The hill isn't as bad as some people have made it out to be. I suppose it depends on how fit you are, but we were fine. Loads to see and do around Tsilivi, and I recommend Dionysos Tours for any trips you want to do. We went Scuba diving down at St. Nicholas Beach which was fab, went on a Turtle trek, and went to Shipwreck beach before it got too busy. The Beach is fantastic if you don't want to stay by the pool all day. But Callinica 3 is great if you want a relaxing holiday, a little exercise to walk off all the gorgeous Greek food you eat, and a nice friendly atmosphere. Also check out Utopia bar on the main street in Tsilivi, and the Miami Snack bar on the beach - they're fab!
just got back from callinika 111,had a great time.rooms basic but clean,lovely sea view and frendly staff. pool area was nice also.can't believe some of the bad reviews,don't let them put you off!!! you hardly notice the planes.if you are used to greece then you know things like the showers are very basic.as for cooking facilities well it is really cheap toeat out and the food by the poolbar is very nice.loads of nice tavernas especially the dionyss(not the one on the main road,although that was really nice)one down side street opposite the med hotel.drinks are cheaper here than anywere else and the food is lovely! also two brothers is a good bar for a laugh!!! beach is lovely definatly going back next year...loved it. hello annie and georgia and ian,moira and jackx
It's Greek - therefore it's basic! The cleaner was in everyday and did a good job, the shower on the third floor is non-existent (just a trickle most days) but it's all part of the holiday! This was the only Greek apartment I have seen that has a double bed in it!!
Hi, me and my partner Mick got back from Tisilivi Sunday 25th Sept. We had a brilliant time. Accomodation was basic but for what you use it for it was ideal. Planes was something to get used to but after a few days they just become the norm. We went on the tour trip of the island by coach we did not enjoy this so much as you are forever on and off the coach every 10 mins. Scuba diving is a MUST. We ended up doing it twice as it was so good, Mike and the team were great. Aquapark was good too. Good place to go on the beach is the abra cat abra bar, get your breakfast there and just on the other side is a private part of the beach brilliant snorkling place. Evening meal for great steak is The Great Dane which is opposite the paradise bar. Again Paradise bar is an eye opener but really great atmosphere. Woukld definatley go again and would stop at Callinga 3/4 apts as they were in ideal spot. I think everyone who has been there knows what 'The killer Hill' is, kept you fit during your stay and by the end of your stay you can climb it 10 times faster than the 1st day you arrived......Hi Mario, Linda, Gladys, Thelma, Ken and Paul.x
One other thing, we did enjoy it very much once we changed to The Mediteranee hotel,and had no intention of sitting indoors complaining all day that is why we got out !!!!!!
It may have been okay for you but obviously you were not in the same apartment that we were given, I was not complaining about the lack of cooking facilities just the lack of a simple kettle, also if you don't mind having to move everything out of the bathroom before you shower then that's okay.To start with we originally booked into the Calliniga 2 which was down the slope but we were mysteriously changed to Calliniga 3 (also found out we had paid a lot more for our holiday than the others that were staying there) on arrival after being told that only Danish people go into Calliniga 2 although all the signs outside Calliniga 2 advertising entertainment etc were in English!!!!,so obviously someone overbooked as when we got to the airport to go out to Zante our flight numbers had changed aswell, we should have been flying with Scandic airways and ended up with excel airways (no complaints about that at all). I did not book with Libra holidays and never would after having a bad experience with them before. I know the planes do not fly in and out during the night but I don't call 4.58 am exactly daytime. We tried to talk to the rep but she was just not interested so gave up and booked somewhere else. After speaking to several other reps, restaurant owners etc they also told us that Calliniga 3 and 4 get a lot of complaints, so it seems that we are not alone. Obviously it is what you are used too but we are not which is why we moved.
Hi, Me and my partner have just arrived back today after staying in the Callinica 3 appartmants. I have just read some reacent comments left by other people on this website and I have to say they are a bit over the top with the complaints! Yes the complex is on a slope, but to be fair, it dose state access situation in the brochure, however, the views from the 1st and 2nd floor are very good with the beach only 10mins walk away. The rooms are vary basic with a walk in style shower (you dont really need the curtain!), the food making facilities are basic also but we went out for food the whole holiday so I could'nt have give a stuff what was in the cupboards! We found that the nights were cool anyway and there would have been no need for air-con at this time of year. The planes are low but there are no night flights into or out of Zante due to the disruption in causes to the turtels when laying the eggs!. By the way, you will find that the whole of tsilivi is on the flight path of planes and to be honest it did'nt bother us at all. If you take the time to speak to the owners you will find that they are very helpful and nice people. You are situated close to loads of eating places and bars, you could be there 2 months and still not go into all of them. On the whole, if you dont mind living simple and you enjoy your holiday instead of sitting in doors all day picking fault with the accomodation you will enjoy yourself as much as we did. P.S. Take the time to speak to your rep because there is loads of trips and days out that you can book and the rep has loads of info on these.
What a dump.Arrived back from tsillivi on Sunday, we were supposed to stay at Calliniga 2 but somehow it got changed to Caliniga 3.Stayed 1 night and booked ourselves into another hotel as we couldn't stay there any longer, all the rep was interested in was sitting at the bar drinking and smoking, the place was directly in the flight path to the airport and the planes were extremely low and they start coming in at 4.58 am, it's like sleeping on the runway. There is no air conditioning, the fridge was manky with no shelves, their is no kettle and nothing to boil water in, no shower curtain but there is rings where it should have been.It is on an extremely steep slope and then we had 3 flights of stairs to climb, were told we would be moved to a ground floor aprtment but that never happened.if you are booked in here change your booking before it is too late DON'T GO, IT IS AWFUL.
can any one tell me what facilites you get in the callinica 3 appartments as im going on the 18 sept thank you x
Does anyone know what the weather will be like in September, we will be arriving on the 18th, will it still be really hot.
