Excellent - 2 star under rated!
"Couldnt fault this place at all. Staff were so friendly and helpful, on arrival they met us off the coach, took all are bags to the room ( bearing in mind i don't travel light) and also swapped us to a ground floor apartment once they noticed we had a pram. Any queries we did have were answered straight away. Cleaner came in every day to change bedding and towels. Bar and resturant staff were so friendly, even giving my kids free drinks. The pool area was lovely, the place was kept immactulate. My room was very close to the bar but still on a night you couldnt really hear the music even though the bar stayed open til the very early hours. i think it was drown out by the air con - which i did pay extra for but was a god send. Would definately go back. Very spacious apartments, big bathroom. I have stayed in other hotels in Tsilivi these been 3 & 4 star and this was much nicer. Fantastic holiday "

Worst accomodation we ever had (September 2011)
"When we decided to go to Greece, we asked at our Tomson travelling agency for a quiet place next to a sandy beach. We ended up at Planet Resort (apartment/selfcatering) in Tsilivi/Zante. This was the loudest (disco every night till 2.30am) and dirtiest place we have ever stayed in and we certainly have seen a few holiday apartments on the continent. The bed sheets had holes in them, the floor was not cleaned properly, if at all, the drains smelled horrible, ants about, there was hardly anything in the kitchen. So we had to pay for A/C to be able to sleep at night. The pool was overcrowded, there was sunscreen floating on the surface. Beside that very disappointing experience the island is breathtaking, the sea was very clear and warm, the food to die for and the greek people very friendly and helpful. We soon found another pool to go to and sunbathe at Tom and John with the friendly Janis and Eva. "

Best Holiday Ever!
"Just returned from 11 night stay at the Planet Studios & appts. What a fantastic place for the family,our 2 girls (15 & 12) cried when we had to say goodbye wish we had booked for 2 weeks. Cannot wait for a return visit in 2012. No need to rush down to put towels on the sun beds(although people still did) as it didn't matter what time of day you got to the pool there was always plenty of sun beds. Music from the bar wasn't a problem as previous reviews have pointed out, once the doors are closed you cannot hear a thing. The staff are so friendly and welcoming,they would do anything for you. Our 1 bed appt. was large and clean, fresh towels & sheets every other day. Wish we were still in Zante at The Planet. xx"

"Just got back from an 11 night stay at Planet and it was fantastic. We are a family with 2 children aged 11 & 9 and they had just as much fun as us, the pool is big enough for everyone but can get abit deep without warning. The staff are all fantastic and can't do enough for you the bar is open til 3am and is very lively but if your a holiday maker that goes to bed early then once the balcony doors are shut you won't hear a thing. The bar doors get shut at midnight so not sure why other reviews moan about the music, my idea of a holiday isn't to be in bed before midnight so if you are one of those people then this maybe isn't the place for you!! We met loads of people that had stayed on the island before but at different resorts and said Planet is by far the best they have people return year after year. The only down fall about Greece is there is a fee payable for Air Con that we wasn't aware of until we arrived so make sure you budget yourself a maximum of 75 Euros (2 week stay). The bar serves food between 8am - 2am and is fairly cheap but supermarkets are abit pricey, we found one at the back of the apartments heading towards the beach that was cheap enough but that was 5 days into our holiday. The local resturants are fantastic and heres a few I would return to Calypso, Romios, Athena and Family (but their service was a little poor). I would return to Planet and would recommend to anyone who wanted a lively holiday."

Best holiday ever!
"We are a family of 4 with two teenage girls that went to Planet and got back on the 8th of August 2011 and we absolutley loved it! It was our first time to Greece and it didn't fail to impress!Â The staff at Planet were friendly, polite and made you feel like part of the family. They would do anything for you and nothing was too much hassle! My daughter lost her iphone whilst she was at Planet and although it was not their fault, the staff did everything they could to help us. They contacted the police (in order to get a statement for insurance purposes) and organised a taxi to take us into Zante town (this was a challenge in itself as there was a taxi strike on so it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack!). The rooms were very large, spacious, clean and comfortable. The maids visited everyday and gave us fresh towels every other day and changed the beds twice during our week stay. When we read reviews on Planet, we were concerned about the reports of noise. There is no need to worry! Although the bar was open til 4/5am (we only know this as the staff told us) when the shutters and doors are shut, you can barely hear a thing!Â We had air conditioning and the safe and for the week it cost â¬55 for them both. Tsilivi itself is beautiful. So peaceful yet never boring! The beach is fab - the water is very warm and you can go Â out for miles and still be in shallow water!Â We were worried about the cost in Greece due to it's financial issues, however, a 2 course meal (inc. a round if drinks) for 4 cost around â¬40! I would recommend 'Benikos' situated down a the side road next to the corner supermarket (opposite Popeyes), Nemesis Taverna and Athena - all serve gorgeous food! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are now changing our holiday to Egypt next year so we can go back! We will of course be revisiting Planet! Â We would like to thank Sharon, Ricky, Nick, Andreas, Shelley, Babbis and the rest for an amazing holiday and making it extra special! See you all soon! Dean, Jo, Danni & Carys xxx"

"we have just got back from a fantastic holiday at Planet apartments, we loved every minute, our 2 children aged 13 and 16 also loved it, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the bar was great and had a good vibe at night, we had no problem with any noise from music as when u shut your doors you can't hear any music. The pool area is great for chilling in the day, the beach is only a short walk away. There are sooo many great restaurants around to choose from, the rooms are spacious and clean, we will be going back."
