Tsiolis Studios are, in our opinion, the perfect place to stay in Tsilivi. Frances and Dennis are very welcoming and cannot do enough to ensure that you have everything you need for your stay. The furnishings and equipment are of a very high standard - better than you would find in the average Greek studio and Mimosa, Frances' maid, maintains a very high standard of cleanliness. If you need help and guidance in getting around the island, viewing the sites, exchanging currency, then Frances is the person to help you. We have visited Tsilivi for the past nine years and have had many happy holidays but the ones we have taken in the past few years at Tsiolis have been the best ever. We can heartily recommend them.
Have never stayed at the Subrise but we use the pool every time we are in Tsilivi. It is undoubtedly the best pool in the village and we have got to know the owners over the years - in fact we watched the pool and hotel being built. Sotiria and the family are very welcoming, to non-residents as well as residents, and they take particularly good care of us and help my disabled husband to enjoy his holiday. The food at the pool bar is excellent and very good value.
I'm sorry one person didn't like Mikalis. We haven't been bribed but we know after visiting Tsilivi for 9 years and eating at many of the restaurants in the village that Mikalis is simply the best. You'll get a warm welcome and good food at an excellent price. You can stay just long enough to eat your meal or relax over a glass of wine and spend the evening there. All tastes are catered for on the menu and you can stick to good english dishes or be adventurous and try Jan's excellent greek cuisine. Children are particularly welcomed. If, for any reason, you want to eat at your apartment, Jan & Mike are happy to provide a carry-out service. We would recommend that you go at least once, you'll never be a stranger after that first visit.
