57 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Absolutley amazing place to stay
"The rooms are clean, cleaned daily by lovely Angelica. The meals are superb, cooked by master chefs Takis and 'little' George. The bar is a fantastic and fun place to drink, thanks to master barman 'big' George. Not sure about Tonyt's review. Must have stayed at another Daphne Apartments. The 'friends from England' he refers to were actually returning guests who have become friends with the family who run the apartments. It doesn't take spending all your holiday money at the bar to get that kind of rapport with the staff at Takis Place, all it takes is interaction with them, as they are devoted to make sure you have a great holiday. Don't let one negative review sway your decision. There is a reason why Takis Place is a sought after location, year on year. The staff there even introduced me to my future wife whilst on holiday there. I guarantee you will also be putting positive comments on this sight, should you decide to book. Russell"

"WE stayed in room 4 on the ground floor, the view was the worst view of an allotment we have ever scene and ferrule cats. Our return flight was 6am on the Monday Morning so we had to get out of our rooms at 12pm on the day for which the cleaner was standing at our door from 10:30 am for us to vacate we asked Takis if we could keep the room on for which we were told to ask on the day of departure and guess what he could not help us,it was a good job we made friends with the people in the next room.It is the first time in all our travels in Greece that we could not keep our room on, I have been to Tsilivi 3 times .I found the bar staff was very rude and the young lad was more bothered trying to chat up the scandanavian reps which stayed in a appartments further down the road. The room was very dusty,the staff was very unfriendly. If you spent all your money at the bar and restaraunt all the time you would be well liked, Takis and his family had a BBQ for his favourites and his family so we were left out. The best places we ate at was valentino's castle I was always full, Popeyes, The family restaraunt etc. So if you travel here and for your return is in the middle of the night avoid this place !!"

Daphne Apartments- the best holiday ever!!!!!!
"Me and my partner Duncan stayed at the Daphne apartments (Takis Place) in Aug 2011 and we have one word for them- amazing!!!! It was one of the best places we have ever stayed at! Takis, the owner, his son George and barman George(Yorgos) made us feel so welcome. They did everything they could to make sure our stay was great, they are all really friendly! Takis makes the best Greek salad ever, George the barman makes great cocktails and Takis son George is good at practical jokes!!!! The apartments were so clean, they were cleaned daily, and you get clean towels and bedding every three days! The apartments are very spacious, they have their own kitchen area, separate bathroom and own balcony! The bathroom even has its own hairdryer! The pool was really clean, and there were enough sun loungers and umbrella's for everybody who stays!!! The bar at the apartments offers lots of choice and they also do breakfast and snacks throughout the day which are great value for money. The apartments are only a 10 min walk from the beach, a 3 min walk from supermarket and a really nice traditional Greek restaurant called the Castle!!!! I would recommend these apartments to everybody, we have told all of our friends and family about it,we haven't got one bad word to say about Daphne apartments!!!! Thank you so much for making our stay perfect, we liked it so much three weeks after returning we went to the travel agents and we have booked to go back next year!!!"

cannot wait for next year
"This is our 2nd time in tsilivi and our 1st time at takis place. I cannot explain how much we loved our time here. it was going to be a holiday to remember for me and my partner as we were set to be married whilst there. 30 of our close friends and family joined us in tsilivi, all of whom came to visit george, george and tazis. we arrived a week before our guest but before we knew it we had made friends with the owners and other guest at the apartments. everyone was soooo friendly, soon after our welcome drink (which had to be alcoholic ordered by big george) everyone knew we were getting married the following week. although tazis place is only small i was very surprised that i NEVER had to get up early to save a sunbed. george and tazis were always pleased to stay up with you and have a late drink nothing and i mean nothing was every too much for these guys. i have now visited quite a few of the hotels in tsilivi and can say with confidents that TAZIS PLACE is the most friendly and happiest place in tsilivi. the wedding day came and george, george and tazis were all very excited. they arranged a horse and carriage to collect me and my dad (so lovely). as i walked down the stairs in my wedding dress all the family and guest where waiting for me, clapping and cameras at the ready. the apartments are very basic, roomy and clean set just out of the hustle and bustle of the main street. PERFECT. the resterant next to tazis place is fantastic its called valentina's castle proper greek food. the beach is only 5minutes walk one of the nicest beaches i have been on, loads of watersports and well worth the walk to the harbor. we took the kids to the tsilivi waterpark (the small one behind planos hotel) it was great and george's brother works there as a lifeguard. myself and my husband cannot wait to return next year for our anniversary, i have been to the travel agents already. TAZIS PLACE is the only place for us see you next year! "

best holiday ever
"From the moment we stepped off the coach we knew that for our first holiday in greece we had found a "special place". We were greeted at the bar area by "Big George"(yorgos)and "Little" George and the owner Takis who immediately placed complimentary drinks on the bar and started to tell us a lot about tsilivi and where to go. With the Takis family and George, the emphasis is definately to have a fun time and they will go out of their way to make sure that this is exactly what you have, as their antics around the bar and pool made endless amusement for us and other holidaymakers. The apartments are large and spacious and are kept very clean and there are fresh sheets and towels 3 times a week and the beds are made every day. there is a large swimming pool and a bar area where they serve breakfast and snacks which are really good value for money as the portions are large and delicious !! The apartments are situated at one end of the town which is pretty quiet, but a 2 minute walk and you are in the hustle and bustle of the town which has every type of restaurant and bar that you could want. A few of our favourite restaurants are Pieros,Trenta Nova, Benikos, and Valentinas Castle all of which serve great food at reasonable prices. The apartments are ten minutes walk from the beach where there are all kinds of watersports available. The beach is excellent with bars and plenty of sunbeds for hire and is great for young children as the sea is very walm and shallow even when you walk out a few yards. We could not have found a better place to go as an introduction to holidaying in Greece. We cannot recommend Takis place highly enough as we felt like "one of the family" but you cannot fail to make friends here as this is the kind of atmosphere it has. Thank You the Takis Family and George for your hospitality and we look forward to seeing you in 2012. "

"First time in Zante and Daphne appartments. The family who run these appartments are the best. They are friendly, generouse & lots of fun. From the minute we arrived, my daughter and I were made to feel welcome. We were hot and tired after our journey, we stepped off the bus into the bar, and were asked what we would like to drink by Big Geroge (the best bar man), when I said I would like a diet coke, he asked again "what would you like to drink" - "a glass of wine" I said - thats more like it he replied - what a wonderful welcome! The appartments were very clean, the pool area always had pleanty of sun beds and the laughter was apleanty. I cannot compliment George enough for his hospitality and generosity of his time, and I hope they pay him well, becausde he gave 100% & went that extra mile to make sure we had a great holiday. I would definately return one day to Daphne Jan Bailey"

Simply the Best
"Been back nearly a week, so miss it, we've changed our holiday next year to go back to the daphne for a 5th time. The staff are realy lovely, apartments are basic but well looked after, even if there are'nt enough coat hangers. Why would we want to go any where else when seeing people from previous years and getting to know new people. ITS SIMPLY THE BEST. Rob & Lesley, Rob & Jennie"
