Daisy Studios in Tsilivi are a perfect place to stay if you are looking for a decent place to stay without spending too much money.
We paid just over £600 for a week self catering and booked with Cosmos 4 days before we left. We were looking for a restful sunny week away and thats exactly what we got.
The studios are clean (the bathroom could be cleaner but bearable). The beds (2 singles) are a bit hard but after a few drinks at night it is less of an issue! The kitchen area is small and cutlery and crockery is limited although that wasnt an issue for us as we wernt looking to do any cooking. The bathroom is adequate the only issue being the shower - as other reviews mention there is no shower curtain and nothing to hold up the shower head, again its no major problem just that the bathroom floor gets quite wet and slippy!
The cleaners are a bit stingy on the loo roll - it wasnt replaced when they came to empty the bathroom bin! Again easily resolved though - just had to ask for it!
We paid extra for air conditioning (50 euros) a lot of money but worth every penny considering the heat!
There is a small balcony for the apartment with a table and 2 chairs, great for a beer in the evening before heading into the town.
The pool is lovely, very clean and lots of sunbeds. The pool is very deep though, not problem for us although I imagine not great if you have children. There is a small childrens pool though. There is a small pool bar - great for drinks, we ate there once and the food wasnt that great.
The location of the apartment is quite good, a 5 min walk to the beach and about a 15-20 min walk into the town. There is a supermarket just next door.
The beach area near to the apartments is more pebbly than further towards the centre of Tsilivi - bit painful underfoot when trying to get into the sea - so we preferred to stay nearer the centre.
The beach is lovely - very clean, the sea is fantastic and there are numerous beach bars.
The centre of Tsilivi is muh bigger than I had expected. There are three main roads full of bars and restaurants something for everyone I would say. They are quite lively but not in a rowdy way - just enough for us. We would recommend The Olive Tree and Athena restaurants although all of the restaurants we ate at were really good. We also found meals not to be overly expensive - probably spent between 35-45euros for a meal for 2 including drinks and starters/desserts.
One other tip is that we paid £20 each for transfers with Cosmos although a taxi would probably only cost 15euros each way and there were plenty taxis outside the airport when we arrived.
If you are looking to go to stay at the Daisy Studios as long as you dont expect to be staying in luxury you wont be disappointed.
