Arrived back from Zante last night (reluctantly). Had a fantastic 2 weeks and stayed at Tom and John Centre. The people were very friendly and Helpful. The studio apartment we stayed in was very clean and had a great sea view. Although we were given a roadside studio, John was very helpful in exchanging for a sea view studio as soon as he couild. The kitchen could do with an upgrade but overall I could not fault it. In an excellent location just 50 yards to a great sandy beach. Pleanty of sunbeds 2 for 5 or 6 euros per day. Although we did not use the pool the staff there were very friendly.
Stopped at Tom and Johns 23 July 2006 for 2 weeks. Room was not very clean, especially the kitchen area. Wouldn't have attempted to cook anything! My little boy wet the bed (not a problem I thought as I'd taken plenty of bed mats - u mums will know what I mean) all I needed was another bottom sheet. Staff were totally unhelpful and told me the maid was not working that day and I had to wait until the following day. (All they had to do was go to the cupboard and get one). Rang Manos rep who did sort it straight away. We had spent money in the supermarket and bar and on air con, safety deposit etc. Felt they were happy to take your money but very ignorant.
my family & i stayed here from 20th july for two weeks.location wise it's goodroom was just ok.we ran out of water for 20hrs & both my wife & i informed the owners who did'nt seem to care.we were told to run the hot tap for 10 mins & hot water would come through.i put all taps & the shower on for 45 mins & still nothing! also when we had our sheets changed we were missing a sheet but as we'd been out all day we came back to shower & change & did'nt notice till 2 in the morning & could'nt really do owt about it.we found the owners ignorant & they seemed to have an attitude which said we've got your money and don't really care now.we won't be coming back to tom & johns & we are not recommending it to friends & family.apart from that tsilivi is lovely.
i know it was a while ago that someone asked for the email addy but thought i'd put it up in case anyone else wants it.... email@example.com
had an excellent 2 weeks stayin here, the appartment was small but clean, and all the staff were lovely, i would highly recommmend stayin here, i have tried to re-book already for sept but they are full. every day we spent by the pool and every evening we ended up havin 1or 4 of gianni's cocktails "v****a" which r mmmmmmm very nice. thanks for the presents giannis your a very sweet guy.. but i will definately get u in that pool 1 day, once to often u chucked me in lol...
we stayed at tom and john's for a week...the people were friendly. sounds like it's hit and miss whether you're lucky enough to get your room cleaned. Our bins were changed everyday but some of the people we met there were unlucky and didn't get theirs changed all week! it's a minute walk from the beach and right next to the shop. it's off the main street in tsilivi so it's not too busy and the bars and restaurants are a short walk away. the pool is great...clean and quiet, plenty of space to lounge. the pool bar is great...hey to giannis...don't work to hard giannis...very friendly guy
Just returned home from 2 weeks staying at Tom and Johns and although the apartments are very nice after our first week the cleaner or somebody who was with her stole my friends mobile phone from our room! it was reported to manos reps who were quite helpful but charge 50euros for an interpreter to contact police. We tried to speak to John about it but he was not interested at all and implied that we had other people in our room which we didnt. basically our holiday was spoilt as we had to leave our room every day knowing that they had dishonest staff working there and the owners dont really care about their customers, we didnt even get any sort of apology from them. My friend has stayed at the Voula round the corner for 14 years and never had anything stolen before now. very disappointing. I would not recommend staying here.
if your lookin for a holiday come here its fab theres a pool table u will love it
does anybody know tom and johns e-mail address??
The two bedroom apartment we were allocated was filthy, damp and moldy and had already been refused by a family earlier the day we arrived. I cannot begin to describe how filthy it was - there were only three filthy cups and plates and the fridge had black mold growing all over it. Manos reps were so unhelpful that we ended up paying for our own accommodation on top of what we had already paid for the holiday! Passed the apartment every day on the way to the beach - they had maids in there trying to air it out by leaving the mattresses etc out in the sun!!. Have been to Tsilivi six years running and absolutely adore the place and this was the only bad experience we had ever had. We will never travel with Manos again the rep's were absolutely useless and the area manager was a complete and utter liar!!!.
In answer to mo's question, Tom and Johns can be booked with Manos.
would like to know which tour company to look for to book holiday at tom and johns
Second time at Tom and Johns, nice and clean, great location, reccomend it to anybody.
Excellent location, clean but basic apartment, quiet at night. The pool was well maintained. The only problem we had was that we only had air conditioning in one of the two bedrooms! However we found that hiring 2 fans was a lot cheaper and we didn't really need the air conditioning anyway - and at a cost of 11 Euros a day it would have been very expensive anyway.
tom + johns was ok apts but could av been better, the location was excellent,the cleaner in tom + john's i think should have visited atleast every 3 days but she only came once a week!
We have just returned from our fourth visit to Tsilivi, but only the first time we had stayed at Tom and Johns. We found everyone friendly. Yanni, at the Pool Bar, was always cheerful as well as Tom and his family. We finished off most nights at the Pool Bar having a drink and talking to Tom. We will certainly be going back next year and look forward to seeing those we made friends with at Tom and Johns, as well as the Sweet Revenge Diner and Camelot Restaurant.
Tom and Johns pool and bar were possibly the best in tsilivi i think. We went to st dennis up the road and it was horrible u could smell the chlorine from up the road. the pool is very big and sometimes very popular but dont let that put u off. the bar is nice and serves delish food. the milkshakes r very good i had five there just so chocolatey. there is loads more good stuff about it but theres so much i cant be bothered to sit here all night typing it.hope to see u at tom and johns peeps.
whoops sorry it was much better than average
hi i went to tom and johns in august last year and i was wondering if any1 was goin on the 18th of august and c*mmin back on the 1st of september thx peeps
hi i stayed in tom and johns in june 2004. i found it great, they were very friendly and very clean. there were many shops around the area and the beach is all but a little stroll. i found the best place to eat out was Popeye's restaurant, the service was excellent and we became members although i have lost the e-mail address so if anybody knows it would you please send it me ! while we were in tsilivi were hired bikes and travelled all round zante in 3 days. the turtles were very entertaining and we also visited the blue caves. i hope to visit again soon. we made many friends at tsilivi and we found the bar just up the road from tom and john's had very good prices! thanks for a great holiday tsilivi!
How to book at Tom and Johns
We got back from a few days ago had glorious weather right up to the last day when we had the most torrential rain and thunderstorms, didn't stop us going out and having a great last night though!! Tom and Johns is clean and in a great location, near the beach, close enough to resort centre but far enough out to escape the noise. Pool bar is very expensive..a soft drink cost €1.50, same can at supermarket costs 60 cents. And it wasn't open in the evenings, so we had to look elsewhere, Moby Dicks is just a few yards aways and drinks and food there was cheap and very good also excellent service.
Staff at Tom and Johns pool bar a bit miserable we found, kept on telling us to keep the children quiet!!! How the hell can you do that when they are excited and having fun, we are on holiday!!!!! Nice guy in the supermarket, very pleasent. A bit expensive there but very handy when you run out of milk in the morning!! Don't know if I'll go back cos I found Tsilivi to be to "touristy" for my taste,
but everyone else enjoyed it, it was clean and you can find everything you need, good food at most places we ate too.
we only had a drink there, but found it ok.
Don't be put off by any comments you've read next season there should be a hunky looking guy working there.
people i've spoken to have said it was good.
don't forget all greek rooms are basic
anyone going to thease studios & appartments are on to a winner!safety deposit boxes are available,located in the shop.the pool is brilliant,luckily the beach is so close i was able to drag the girls out of the pool for a stroll down.we loved it so much i've already booked for next year,you dont get a higher reccomendation than that!!
Someone must have deleted or previous comments. We arrived back on 26th August. Tom and John's was located in the quieter area of Tsilivi which we were grateful for, as we like the more traditional Greek experience and the resort is more like a miniature 'Blackpool in the sun', for our liking, but we enjoyned the sun, so all was not lost. Tom and John's apartments were clean and as expected (we've been to Greece many times, and though we love the country, we know what to expect in terms of plumbing and electricity). There was a damp smell under our sink unit, but didn't spoil our holiday. The beds were changed once a week, which was ok, as we liked the lie in - didn't have to get up so the cleaners could get in. We did find though, that we were over-charged (more than once) at Tom and John's shop, which was expensive, (expect to pay about 1.72E for tin of tuna, 2E packet biscuits etc. Charges at Tom and John's pool were extortionate too - you can get can of cola or orange for 59C and can of lager/beer for same at local shops. We paid 10E 60C for 2 beers and 2 soft drinks at the pool!!!!! You're being ripped off, so even though it says not drink your own drinks around the pools side, we did - we expected to pay extra but not be taken for a ride. Their souvenir shop also over-charged us (even after working it out on the till, it still was not right) - they really try it on with the tourists - watch your money!!!
