Levante Speedboat Trip - (Zante Excursions)

Jane H           

FANTASTIC !!!!!

 
In relation to Caroline's question, we took our 2 year old (just) on the trip & had no probs at all, in fact she even had a nap!!  All kids under 12 get a life jacket & they also had a go at captaining the speed boat, so I'd say go for it.
 
Ian the salesman is a nice chap & Captain Spiros is a real darling.  We went on the afternoon trip to the south of the island & thoroughly enjoyed it.  We wished we'd had chance to do the north trip too, but we didn't do the trip until the end of our hols.  Still, it gives us an excuse to go back eh??  We saw 2 turtles & the places that we visited where fantastic.
 
Well worth the money & much, much better than the trips on the bigger boats, you get a good view, go into caves & have great fun.

Planos Bay Aparthotel - (Accommodation in Tsilivi)

Great location, not far from beach or from main part of town. although there are bars, restaurants & supermarkets on your doorstep.  Made to feel welcome on arrival, apartments where clean, basic, but adequate for a holiday.  Pool area kept clean & tidy.  Pool temperature was very refreshing when the heat got a little too much.  Plenty of sunbeds &  mattresses where available for hire at 1 euro per day if you want a little more comfort.  Music around pool area was not a problem, in fact there was a wide variety of music played to suit all tastes & ages.  Reception area had a pool table, comffy sofas & was air conditioned. they also had a stock of books to borrow during your stay.  Pool bar was run by chris, angela & daughter they made everyone feel wecome & the service was 1st class.  The menu was varied & well priced.  Alex orgained the entertainment & all the kids loved her.  she was a lovely girl who always had a smile & took the time to say hello.

 
All in all a most enjoyable holiday, we shall definately return.

Stamnes Taverna - (Restaurants in Tsilivi)

 Ate here 3 times & each time the food & service was excellent.  Starters where pretty filling so we decided against them on our 2nd & 3rd visit. Kids meals where just the right size, not too hot & delicious. Drinks where reasonably priced too. Made to feel very welcome. Would definately advise you to try it!!

McDonalds - (Restaurants in Tsilivi)

  with 3 young kids & 3 teenagers in tow, we had to go to Mcdonalds.  No different to any other Mcdonalds other than they sold alcohol, greek salads & had cartons of pop rather than fruit shoots.  Kids wolfed it down.

Princess Hotel - (Accommodation in Tsilivi)

click to enlargefantastic hotel/apartments, there is not 1 bad thing to be said. From the very beginning of our week when Freddy sprinted up the driveway to greet us and help with our bags, we felt so relaxed and welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for any member of staff there. If you have been before you will notice on your next visit that they have done a bit of building work over the winter, the bar area has been changed around, the pool has had its depth altered so it is more kid friendly, new loungers around the pool, lovely cream/white rattan with co ordinating sofas in the pool bar area. We ate breakfast/lunch here most days and it was always tasty, well cooked and well priced. We always returned after our evening meal for a drink and the service was 1st class. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apt which had more than enough room for us and our 2 girls, the bedroom was bigger than ours at home. Nicely furnished and kept clean. Maids came in everyday and towels where changed 2 maybe 3 times during our weeks stay. We shall certainly return, everyone we spoke to had been here at least once before, they seem to get a lot of repeat business which is not surprising considering the service the give. Fantastic postion next to warm & fresh bakery (smell is divine) and all bars, restaurants, shops etc are on the doorstep. Freddy, Tony, Vanessa ( i think, sorry if I have got mixed up with her name ) are a real credit to this place. I could go on & on but I think you can guess that this is a great place for your holidays!!

we stayed here in May of this year and i think ours was classed as complex 3, with 1 being the hotel, 2 being the atudios/apts on right of pool, behind bakery and 3 being the newer block. We had the 2 bedroom apt at the top and it was excellent all round, size, facilities, cleanliness etc. My parents are there at the moment in a studio and i think they are in complex 3 too. they are having a great time just as we told them they would !! I can't imagine that you would be disapointed with this complex, just the right size, friendly, welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, situated in a great spot too. I have heard of people complaining about the noise from the road but i can't say that we heard anything (we live in a really quiet cul de sac so if if where noisy at night with passing traffic i'm sure we would have noticed) they are situated at the top end of Tsilivi, not Planos end. Next to warm & fresh bakery, just up from where they do the football penalties, by Marios. Just on the bend of the road. opposite Family reastaurant ( i think it was called that, yes i'm quite sure it was................I REALLY WISH WE WHERE THERE NOW!!!!

Hi Alan,

a
yes they aren't far from popyes, 5 min walk or so. My parents loved it there too, they found their studio big enough for the 2 of them and they thought everyone was really friendly too. Have a great time!!
