Our second visit to the Daisy and enjoyed our two week stay. The place is basic and you get what you pay for. Greece is basic so if you want luxury you need to pay for it and go else where ! The family who run the Daisy are always around and the staff are very helpful if you ask. This years visit was not as good as last time, a few grumbles - the cleanliness was not as good as two years ago. The room was very dated (we were right at the back which i didnt mind) and as for self catering well their was no surface you could call a kitchen only two hob rings and the sink. Under the sink was the only cupboard you got ! It smelt very musty and luckerly i had brought my odd utensils and stuff so i didnt have to use them. (they did provide essential stuff albeit oddments !) The towels came on odd days and you got a random variety ! If you asked the staff for more they were usually obliging. I would always keep valuble items out of sight though we did leave ipods and odd bits in draws and had no trouble. The good bits are the bar, the great pool, (it is deep !) the perfect location (near beach, just out of the towns hustle and bustle and the handy supermarket next door. Oh and it is easy pick up point for trips !) We find the Daisy easy and relaxing, we will return in the future give it a try.
returned today from a lovely 2weeks in tsilivi...........daisy was a nice place to stay the rooms are basic but it doesnt really matter as your only there to sleep in it couldnt fault anything or anyone in the hotel apart from the maids......if your booking to go or have booked to go make sure u lock everything away i had a few things taken luckily i found where theyd hidden some of them and got them back so just word of warning. Apart from that we had a fantastic holiday and will definatly return.
Hi I'm going to the Daisy Studios on the 1st of September I was wondering if anyone can tell me what facilities are in the room, basically so I know what to take with me eg. Hairdryer, travel kettle etc... Appreciate any help Thanks Corrine
Was at the Daisy studios for a week from the 31st July. As with most studios in Greece they were basic. Not all of the rooms have aircon but there are fans available (15 Euros per week). The catering facilities in the room are limited and I would recommend you take a travel kettle however, the prices in the restaurants and tavernas are so reasonable why would you want to cook food in the studio. The pool area is very clean, as are all of the communal areas. If you have a late flight there are showering facilities and plenty of sofas to lounge on. The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. The bar does reasoinably priced food and good breakfasts. the stidios are two minutes from the beach which is very clean. If you are going to do shipwreck cove do not book with the holiday companies as you will be herded like cattle and when you get there there are hundreds on the beach. Book through Levante boat trips with Captain Spiros who will get you there before anyone else arrives (note that some times the boats cannot land due to the swell of the sea) on the way back he takes you in to the caves and gives you an oportunity to swim from the boat. Tsilivi is a very family friendly resort with enough tavernas and restaurants to eat somewhere different every night
Just returned from tsilivi today. The daisy studios are basic, but very clean, the maids came in daily and our room was spotless. the pool area is lovely and pool very clean, shame not a few more sunbeds as lots of large parties staying at one time so you have to be down sharp to get one. Only a few rooms have air conditioning and i think you can only book these direct through the owners. Temperatures have been hitting 40 so you definately need to hire a fan, it helps a little bit. Big thanks to yanni the barman and also the lad who worked there during the day, his nick name is manuel, he never stops. Would definately stay here again but would try to get a room with the air conditioning.
We stayed at the Daisy for our first time in Zante last week and loved it the second we walked in. All of the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful even if some of their English is basic - you can still understand enoughLoved our room which overlooked the pool - we didn't have air con but slept with the doors open with absolutely no problems of bugs, flies or mozzies so didn't need air con. Did not see a single broken tile, dirty patch, etc over the whole hotel, intside and out - is really clean & well looked after.
Hi everyone, I spent a week here at Whitsun with my daughter...

we are going to the daisy studios aug 28th 2011, can anyone tell me if the air con is in all the rooms or just a select few? we have been before but that was 7years ago
Had alovely holiday staying at daisy studios in June 2011, we had a studio at the back over looking the olive groves. The room was very clean and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Good value for money. We liked being the short walk from Tsilivi centre as we prefer the quiet. The only negative I can think of was we didn't need air-conditionong in June but in July and August you would and it was quite expensive-60 euros for the week.
We were booked to return to Daisy in May 2009 but due to collapse of XL have had to change our plans. The Daisy is now with Cosmos but unfortunately do not fly from Newcastle. We are still coming to Tsilivi but staying in the Ariadne. We will of course come and say hello.
just like to say a big thank you to helen our rep even after she lost her job with xl going to the wall giving us all info on getting home
once again we had a great time at the daisy
thanks to all the staff and especially nistery and yannis
Hi all, has anyone got any photos of the rooms at the daisy?
We (thats 9 of us) are heading out again on 20 July for 2 weeks. Have not been since 2005 so looking forward to seeing if any changes have been made.
Was at Daisy in 2006 with 3 other couples, had a great time. Off again 13 July 2008 for another 2 weeks, fantastic place!! Accomodation is clean and comfortable, staff very friendly. Swimming pool was first class. Everything you need is just a short walk away. Highly recommend Moby Dicks Restaurant followed by a walk along the sands to the Beach Bar! And of course the weather is amazing!
guys. tsilivi is great. me and my fiance helen got engaged their the day we touched down. was a suprise for her. weather is great. apartments are good. weather is delicious. thunderstorms, if they happen, are awesome to watch. for kjids you have loads to do. pedalo's, mini golf, fishing and swimming. better that anything the uk could provide. daisy studio's will hold many memories. glad to hear bilkl is working theis. crazy albanian!! marl was their when we went. Tula is lovely if you have any problems. enjoy as were going again this year!
had a fab time just booked for next year but not this hotel . Bar staff are great . would recommend to all
No a/c in any of the rooms I've ever had over the years but I think they rent fans and kettles at reception.
Message especially for Kelly... From your comment below it's obvious you had a bad one in Spain. I've never heard of anyone having to leave Zakynthos in similar circumstances. Daisy is in a wonderful location just 200 meters from the beach (in my opinion the best end). There's a little supermarket next door so you don't even have to walk into the village proper if you don't feel like it. I've seen gangs of roving teenagers in Spain, but nothing like it in Greece. Tsilivi truly is geared up for all ages as you'll see on your first day. Without boring eveyone else on the board, if you want to hear where my wife find comfortable and relaxing etc, drop me an email at steve.vincent40@ntlworld .com and I'll give you as much information as you want. If not, we'll see you there next month. Whatever else you do, stop worrying about it, you're going to have a great time, honest.
