Overall myself and my partner gave the hotel a 6. If like us, you only wanted a shower,toilet and bed it was ideal (perhaps a little far away from the town center) I however would not recommened this hotel to people with young children. The hotel overall was quite run down espeally in our rooom where chunks of plaster were missing from the wall,The beds were ok, but beware as my partner has a nasty gash on his leg from them! The shower was a bit hit and miss with the hot water and the hot water tap even came off at one point! The swimming pool was a bit manky (all green and furry ) but was cleaned often, the pool bar was nice. Breakfast and tea were ok but nothing special. It rained on our stay their too and the dining room roof leaked as did our front door!
Overall we would not go back to the hotel and wouldn't recommend it to anyone going there in peak season or with a young family.
first and last time at this hotel???on arrival was told were to find our room,got there,filthy,went to complain,no joy there,complained to rep,went for evening meal,no variety,ate out rest off week,breakfast no better,had toast mainly,pool was dirty so went to another hotel and beach,just one thing after another,been to greece 5 yrs running now and never had anything like this,made a fomal complaint and have since put in writting to tour operator,only good thing was some of the staff were great,Demitri and a young man(waiter)at breakfast,also with us being out away from the hotel every day,we ate at some really nice restuarants and saw more of the island thanks to Steve at Theo,s rentals,top bloke
This is my second visit to this hotel from 3 October till 17 October, I agree with John Pickstone that it has seriously gone downhill. I go on holiday for a stress free time which I didn't have.We didn't have hot water the first few days of our holiday and when complaining to hotel management and Thomson Rep they didn't take us serious.
.We have just returned from Tsilivi.
This was our fifth and LAST time at the Strofades. The standards have slipped from our first stay there. The pool was filthy and was not cleaned to an acceptable standard until our last day there, we were told that the weather had been bad over the last week so it was not been possible to keep it clean, other Pools in the area were clean though. The Lift was not working in the block we stayed in and it would seem, had not been for some weeks. The first week, the room we were in had NO water coming out of the hot water system, we were told after a few days that the pipe work was made up with salts and could not be cleaned out until the Hotel was closed at the end of October. We were moved to another room after a week, we had water but it was cold. After many comlaints by me and other guests work was done to try to resolve the problem but this was not a complete success, we only had HOT water for 3 out of 14 days. During a power cut while having a disscusion with one of the receptionists (the one with an American accent), I was told that water and electricity were luxuries and we should not take them for granted (not sure if it was a joke but if it was, I did not find it funny at the time and do not now).My impression is that this Hotel is going downhill fast and needs a lot of money spending on it if it is to survive (which I doubt). In spite of being there before, the last time in June this year, we will NEVER stay at this Hotel again.
Just returned from staying two weeks at this hotel.
Lovely hotel, friendly staff. This was one of the best hotels I have stayed in that was 3 star. Really clean and well situated. We did not have any problems with noise at night and even when taking a siesta during the day providing the patio window was shut you could not hear a sound from the pool which we were right on top of. Would not hesitate in staying here again.
Good hotel. Clean.Right on the beach.Friendly and helpful staff. The beds were hard though. About a 10min walk to the centre of Tsilivi. Plenty of Bars and restraunts.We did find the hotel noisey at night with dogs barking all night.
Stayed here back in October and loved it. Excellent staff, lovely clean rooms (had daily maid service) beds were very hard though, food was good....can't fault the place, would definately go back there.
Highly recomend the Olive garden for food and great service too.

Excellent hotel and staff. It was a wonderful place about 100m from the beach and as much you could eat breakfasts. Enjoyed the Greek night's on Wednesdays with alot of dancing, eating and drinking. The barbecue was excellent value. The hotel is also about 1/2km to the main Tsivili centre with bars, restaurants and shops.
This was the best hotel we have stayed in in greece. The location was great, rooms are large and almost all have a pool and sea view. Rooms are cleaned every day and are quite well kept. Plenty of sunbeds ,although you need to be there early to get one !. Sunbeds are available on the beach for 6 euro for 2 beds and umbrella for the day, great value!. The town is only a 7-10 minute walk away. Good choice at breakfast although mostly continental but english available to. Staff are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble. we will returning next year.
Just returned from a fortnight at Strofades Beach Hotel and it was fantastic. First sight of it from the coach was not pretty but it is deceiving. The hotel was lovely with excellent staff and the rooms were cleaned eveyday along with regular fresh bedding and clean towels. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Alexis the rep was on hand at anytime if you needed her, although you would hear her before you could see her. Location was excellent, right on the beach and the town just a five to ten minute walk away over frog bridge. If you like wildlife then the sound of these frogs were amazing but they were quiet towards the end of our second week so don't be put off if you don't like them. Besides you never saw any in the Hotel. Breakfast was plentiful although the bacon and beans were a liottle cold and the room layout does need to be reviewed due to congestion at times. The snack bar was brilliant with staff more than willing to omit or add something to your choice if required. Vsit the Balcony Bar nearby for the best sunset photos around about quarter to nine.
Have just returned from a week at the Strofades Beach Hotel and it was the best holiday we have ever had.
Stayed at the Strofades for 2 weeks in June. Lovely hotel in a superb location. It's out of the main town so it's nice and quiet at night (apart from the frogs in the stream but you soon get used to them) but only a 10 mintue stroll to some of the best restaurants and bars (highly recommend Sweet Revenge) and you can almost roll out of bed straight onto the beach. The pool area is lovely, although being so close to the beach we didn't make much use of it.The buffet style breakfast has something for everyone and there is still plenty left if, like us, you stroll in at 5 to 10!!
Just returned from a weeks holiday in this fabulous hotel.
Would love to revisit this hotel on another trip to Zante.
Hi me and my partner are planning a wedding holiday in august 2006 with my 2 children and my partners dad. we have never been to greece before but my partners friend recommended tsilivi he said it was fantastic and great for kids and families. we looked through the brochure and found the strofades it looked really nice especially with the beach so near. Has anyone got married there and can they tell me what it was like and was it worth it (i,e) what are the wedding planners like are they good and do they get it right.
well i just got back from zante and it was FAB......its changed alot since i went 7yrs ago but still fab...Stayed at the Strofades Beach Hotel Tsilivi. and what a hotel that is....very very clean very friendly staff good brekki, nice pool, good little pool room and brill location.Only thing i found wrong with it was that there was no entertainment apart from the Greek Night on Sunday, which i thought was really good. The hotel was well located....the beach was right on our doorstep and the resort centre was a little walk away nothing to moan about at all. The staff in the hotel where great, joanna the receptionist just could do enough for us and all the bar staff and cleaners always made you welcome....one thing i will say is that there are Germans in the hotel. but they are not a problem at all...there was none of the usual getting up to find every sunbed was taken up by their towells...nothing like that. And you never seen them after about 9pm....they sort of had their evening meal in the hotel and well must have gone to bed.
We stayed from the 5th Aug 2005 to the 19th, overall we had a good time but we have stayed in better for the money.
We stayed in the Strofades Hotel for a week at the beginning of July. We thought that it was one of the best hotels that we have ever stayed in. Your room is cleaned every day and the whole hotel has extreme hygenic and tidy standards. The food (which is buffet style) is absolutely lovely and is probaby better than if you went to restaurants for a traditional Greek meal. The staff are all courteous and helpful at all times, nothing is ever too much trouble for them and there is a general 'family feel' within their team. The pool bar that serves food all day is of a good quality and the pool is quite big, clean and warm. The hotel provides 'Greek evenings' which are more of a family occasion but appeal to all ages. The hotel would not appeal to people wanting a noisy environment as it is a quiet but enjoyable place to stay with beautiful sea views As you are right on the beach you can choose to stay by the pool or visit the sea with no effort at all. We have never been to Greece before but will be returning next year and will definitely be going back to the Strofades. In fact, we went visiting other hotels and felt that none compared with this hotel's excellence.
HELLO ALL........well im a travel agent and have taken it upon myself to try out the strofades beach hotel. nobody i work with knows anything about the hotel....ive been to tsilivi before and loved it. what im after is some advise from people who have stayed there as to where in tsilivi it actually is if anyones got a map which shows other hotels/bars with the hotel on id be grateful if you could let me know as im not really sure where abouts it is. Also what are the room facilities like??? come on girls are the hairdryers any good or sud i take my own? what sort of things do the stock in the mini bars and the cost? is there much room in the rooms?? and most of all if anyone has stayed b+b what do you get for breckie? Im really looking forward to going although i have heard bad points about it for every bad point ive heard ive heard 2 good ones. I have actually emailed the hotel and they where very kind in getting back to me so thats a good start, staff seem friendly before i have even got there. 8 weeks now and my and my boyfriend will be in a bar some where and i cant wait. but it would greatly put my mind at rest if someone could help with the questions i have asked....cheers....
We've just got back from staying at the Strofades. What can i say.......It was excellent. The location is right on the beach and a 5 min walk to the centre of Tsilivi. We loved it. The staff there are excellent, the rooms are spotlessly clean and modernly furnished. We had a pool and beach view which was gorgeous and to see the sun set was something else. We made good friends with the bar tender Keriaycos, he's a real laugh and will point you in the right direction of where to go and what to do. The best restraunt we ate at was a place called Romeo's. We recommend that 100%. Try the frappe's too, they're fab. All in all Tsilivi and the strofades are a fantastic place to stay. We will definately be going back.
