Sandra's is a fairly small bar at the T Junction in Tsilivi. The service is second to none, the staff the friendliest in the world (probably). This is a great place to go for breakfast, the food is excellent, and there is a superb range to choose from, for such a small place. The prices are fantastic too! There are televisions set up showing major sporting events, the chairs are very comfortable, and one could just sit there, watching the football, enjoying Sandra's and Costas' company, all day - and certainly all evening. Costas even puts himself out to entertain children - always complimentary lollipops, and a toot on a hooter too. Quite simply - the best!
A beautiful hotel run by a lovely family, with great friendly staff. We have just come back from yet another stay at The Park Hotel, and cannot imagine staying anywhere else In Zakynthos/Zante. The hotel is out of the centre, so it's easy to get a good night's sleep, but simple enough to walk in to experience Tsilivi itself. If it's too hot to walk the fifteen minutes to the beach, the owner even takes guests down in his car, mid-morning - free of charge! The food is varied, catering for all of the nationalities that come to stay - mainly English, but with plenty of Greeks coming across from Athens, and some Finnish too. If you learn a few Greek phrases and are pleasant to the staff, you are rewarded with warm hospitality from people who really care that you have a relaxing holiday. Things do go wrong, from time to time anywhere, but you know that at The Park if there is a problem, it will be sorted out. Sure, one can complain about sharing a dining table with another family, but so what, you get to know some of your fellow holiday-makers a bit better, and if you really don't want to share, just go earlier of later than they do! The rooms are of a terrifically high standard for Greece, the food very good and varied - Greek food, always available, plenty of salads, and always something for everyone. My wife has a very restricted diet due to some serious health issues, but she thrives at The Park. The rooms and public areas are always immaculate, the gardens tended to daily. In short, if you can't relax and have a nice holiday at The Park, you probably can't have one anywhere. Go there, get to know the people, and be rewarded with a wonderful experience.
