We stayed at the Christina Apartments for a week in July. This was our first time here.
We were very disappointed by our room. It was basic to say the least. Our kitchen equipment consisted of 2 plates, 2 mugs - 1 chipped, 2 knives - only good for buttering bread, 1 spoon. All the crockery was very old. The fridge was iced up and had a funny smell.
The room was spacious but the furniture was very very basic and could do with replacing - we had no handles on one drawer. We had a good view from the balcony and it was large enough to sit out on.
however we thought the bathroom was horrendous. Terrible shower - i felt it was very unhygenic as the shower curtain rested on top of the toilet. The tile floor was trecherously slippy.
We only got clean towels once when we were there and these were hand towels - and we had to ask for them. Also you have to supply your own toilet roll - we have been on many holidays and this is the first time we have had to do this.
Some days our room wasnt cleaned and we never had a change of sheets.
On a plus point though the pool area was fantastic and we couldnt have asked for better - Large, clean pool, plenty of sun loungers.
The pool bar was ok - lots of flies which put me off eating anything and the tables never looked clean.
The location of these apartments is very good, just on the edge of the town - 5 minute walk away from all the fab restaurants and bars and about 10 minutes from the beach. and the little hill is not steep at all. I managed it in 4 inch heels!
We will definatley return to Zante and Tsilivi - we fell in love with the place but next time WONT be staying at the Christina Apartments.
Plus points for Tzilivi
Definately do the Turtle Trek and Shipwreck tour - Make sure Chris is your guide - hes fabulous.
Level Bar and Two Brothers are fantastic
We never had a bad dining experience and we ate in loads of different places.
Enjoy your holiday xxx
