These are excellent apartments. There are18 in a single block all of which overlook the pool and snack bar. The owners are really helpful and keep the place spottless.Most of the rooms in this block are twin rooms. Ther is a new small block of 4 family rooms which offer prvacy from/for children. We seldom go to the same place twice but made an exception last year. It is about a 5 to 10 minute stroll into town which has some wonderful eateries. There is a weekly quiz and barbecue night. The prize for the winners is a free day's car hire....not bad for a free quiz. The beach is a similar walkig distance as the town. You will find it hard to beat this place. However IT IS NOT A PLACE FOR 18-30 STYLE HOLIDAYS. The only word of warning is don't use the cash machine next to the supermarket with the escallator. We used it and it took the money from our bank but didn't pay it out. It took 2 weeks to get it back by which time we were back home. Give my regards to Yannis. Last time he had me doing the quiz questions for him.

Hi There,

Pretty sure that all of the rooms have balconies from what I can remember. Also pretty sure that all of the apartments do have a seprate area (this was the case in the apartment that I stayed). It was like a living area with a couple of single beds and then a separate bedroom (with a door which can be closed). Really nice little complex and not too far from the resort. Hope this helps

We are thinking of visiting the Manousis Studios this year, however, our daughter is wanting to take a friend.  Is there any privacy in the rooms?  Are the twin and double beds in separate rooms, or, is there a screen of any kind?  The literature does not specifically state and the tour operative has been uable to give an answer.

Does anyone know if all the double bedded studios have a private balcony.  I have booked to go in June and cant wait as the reviews look excellent. I have booked a double bedded room but it doesnt say anything about a balcony.  Just want to make sure

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in the Manousis and it was wonderful.  Sakkis & Yiannis can not do enough for you from the minute you arrive to the minute you get on the bus home.  This is the 2nd time we have been to Tsilivi, 4th time we have been to Greece and this is the best place we have stayed. The Cleanliness is excellent and the pool and other facilities on site are brilliant.  The food is lovely and there's always a cold Mythos to hand.  We would definately go back to these apartments.  Yammas to Sakkis, Yianni & of course Valentino ...

From Margaret, Eileen, Jean & Anne (Manchester & Bolton - 3 September 2006)
To all those great people we met, especially little Harrison (22 months) and his superb nan and grandad (plus Martin of course), thank you for your company.
Our party of 4 ladies (of a certain age) have just recently returned from the Manousis Studios after a weeks stay.  The standard is excellent and the owners so very, very helpful.  Food (usually not served after 6pm) is of high quality at very reasonable prices.  Cleaning is great and the whole place is spotless.
Unfortunately, one of the group went poorly with a stomach upset (chinese meal suspected) for 4 days and another suffered torn ligaments to the foot (watch those pavements, they're horrendous!) on the 5th day.  However, although we were more or less confined to barracks, Saki, Yannis and Valentinos were the perfect hosts and catered to our every whim.  They could not have done enough to help us, they went over and beyond the usual care and attention. 
Our Olympic Rep. (Victoria) and (Emma at the airport) did us proud by providing wheelchair access and getting us through the airport with very little waiting time or hassle.  Thank you to the girls.
We would thoroughly recommend these apartments as they're more spacious than usual and all have a lovely view over the pool.  Can be a little noisy in the early hours, but this is due to those enjoying their night caps whilst sat alongside the pool - it would be better if they sat inside the bar area.

We have recently just returned from 2 weeks staying at the Manousis Apartments.  Before we went we could only find small bits of information on these apartments including even where they were.  We arrived at 7 in the morning feeling very tired and apprehensive but we had absolutely nothing to be worried about.  Before we went I stumbled upon the website for the apartments,, and I can report that the pictures on the website are extremely accurate.

There are two types of rooms in the apartments and, due to paying for an extra night due to the time of our return flight, we experienced them both.  With the exception of one night, we stayed in one of the rooms next to the pool.  This was a twin room with wardrobes, dressing table, side tables, kitchen and shower.  It was perfect for what we wanted.  The room we had for the final night, which cost us 25 euros, was in the new block and had a double and 2 singles and it looked like we were the first people in it as all the cutlery still had labels!

The pool was normally very cold, but was perfect for cooling down from the heat, with enough sunbeds around it for everyone that wanted one.  The bar was a nice size and normally manned by either Yianni or Sakis and came to life during the BBQ night.  For 8.5 euros, Yianni and Sakis provided a meze meal, with greek salad, and wine and followed this up with a music quiz, where the winners received a hire car for a day, and then some greek dancing from what I believe were members of Sakis family.  This included the drunken greek dancing in a ring of fire, with the floor of the bar being set alight!

For info, safety boxes are available for 7 euros and 13 euros for 1 and 2 weeks respectively.  You can also hire a kettle or a fan, note that the rooms by the pool are not air conditioned, although the rooms remained cool (during the first 2 weeks of June) without it, but the rooms in the 2 storey block do have air conditioning.

As already stated, the apartments were less than 10 minutes from the beach and the main high street.  If you are interested as to where they are take a look at  The Manausis is near the Daisy and Angelika stuido's marked on the map, kind of opposite the road that goes to the beach (This is the road you will use to get to the beach).

We personally believe that Tsilivi is the best resort on Zakynthos.  There are plenty of restaurants, bars to try and we ate out at different places pretty much every night.  Our favourites included the Olive Garden, the Family Restaurant and Calypso (the only places we went to twice).

We had a fantastic holiday in Tsilivi at these apartments.  The guys are great and the food is good....  We have stayed in Argassi and Kalamaki, and I must say Manousis in Tsilivi was by far the best...   The pools (adult and toddlers) are clean and the area and apartments are spotless......

 It's a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to the town of Tsilivi....  We had a great meal at Benikos, Ariadne and the Athena tavernas... 
I am going back in May with my best friend and then again in September....

Does anyone have the fax details or an e-mail address for the Manousis Appartments? We stayed there last year and it was great, and we wanted to e-mail the owners to say we were coming back! Many thanks.

We got back from Tsilivi on 30th June after spending 2 weeks there. We haven't been to Greece before but we are now planning our next trip ! When me and my partner booked this holiday we couldn't find any info on them either, but we were very pleasantly surprised. This accommodation only opened in May 2004 and wasn't even put in the brochure till the back end of the year. Sakis and Yianis are great and always make you feel welcome. The pool and snack bar area is spotless, the rooms very spacious and the location couldn't have been better for me and my partner. They are about 5 mins from the beach and 5 mins from the main nightlife via a shortcut down a dirt track. I have got to recommend Magdalenas Bar, the breakfasts here are the best we had only about 5 Euros each with orange juice and tea or coffee. Sakis who works here does the best cocktails ever !!! If anybody needs any more info, i would be happy to try and help. See you next year guys, Yammas !!!!

hi just got back from a week in the glorius Tsilivi and have decided that we are greece converts!!
when we booked our apartments none seemed to have heard of them so i thought id write a review.
to saythe apartments were only a 2 or 3 * they were very nice. spotlessly clean with a great atmosphere. location wise they weerre ok with just a 10 min walk to the main area, although there is a shortcut that halves the journey. the pool area and bar are fab and i really recommend the themed nights that they put on, they are great!!  romms are spacious and clean with the only down side being a small bathroom, but you can live with it. the surroundings are lovely and the two guys that run the place Sakis and Yianni are fab, really friendly and very funny! whatever you do make sure yoiu start off your evening with a cocktail from th bar - they are good. oh one last thing the brochure and the olympic people (tour operators) told us there wasnt a safe - there is 7.5 Euros a week. hope this has been a help to somebody.


could anyone tell me were about these apartmaents are. i know tsilivi well but i have never heard if these, so any other names of hotels or bars it is near. thanks.

Donna A

Hi Hannah,

Thanks for the write up you gave on the Manousis Studios, I have been looking everywhere trying to find comments about this accommodation but have had no luck until now ! I've never been to Greece before and when I saw what a good deal this was I just booked it !
Can you tell me what the local prices are like for food, drink and excursions etc now the Euro is being used?
Any help and advice would be much appreciated.

Hannah B           

This little complex is ideal for families. The apartments are a short walk to the beach and the pool is great. the people that run the place are very friendly. BBQ that is held once a week is good to. We are going back again this year and this will be the 5th time!
