Tzivras Apartments - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Joe A          3/10

I stayed at Tzivras Apts between 12/05/13 26/05/13.

I was informed when I booked this holiday, that Lassi was a lively place to visit with plenty to see & do.

Unfortunately, the resort was very quiet due to the season had not yet started.

Why I was sold a holiday when the resort was partially closed, I don t know.

The Rep informed all that attended her arrivals meeting, of the sights of interest, excursions & means of transport.

When I inquired about the local bus service, the Rep explained how reliable & cheap this service was. I was then told by an employee of the hotel that there was no bus service for the season.

I took a 2hrs scenic walk to the Castle of St George, only to discover that it was closed for renovation. Apparently, it had been closed for ages.

Various other places of interest covered by the Rep were also closed/ not available.

Perhaps the Rep s briefing notes should be updated on a more regular basis.

Good points.

1.  Location of Apt - Within 10/15 mins walking distance to the beaches, taverna s, bars, restaurants, gift shops, supermarkets x 5 & the one & only jewellery shop.

2.  Room Safe Free of charge. (Bonus)

3.  Apt Basic, clean & sufficient facilities for self-catering.

4.  The owner was very helpful.

 

Bad points.

1.  A/C 5 Euro per day. (The use of locally bought fans is not permitted).

2.  Apt facilities NONE!      

    No Security

    No Reception

    No Bar/caf

    No TV

    No Telephone

    No Olympic notice board

    Room/maid service 3 x s in 2 wks 

    NO BATTERY in the smoke detector!!!????   

Overall I had a relaxing time, but was too quiet for my liking.

Da Veronica - (Restaurants in Lassi)

Joe A          2/10

During my recent stay in Lassi, I visited this venue.

The 1st evening was quite full & the atmosphere was better than most other bars.
Although, the barmaid/owner was very efficient, I was dissappointed when I asked for a large draught Mythos, only to be served with a warm drink of something, & it definately wasn't Mythos.
For the remainder of my stay in this resort, this venue was dull,empty & still serving some warm gnats wee from the Mythos draught pump!
I can stay at home & be sold muck like that.

Afer hearing so many good reports about this venue, I thought I would sample their menu, but when I visited it last week, it was closed/shut.

Very disappointing.

St Georges Castle - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Joe A          1/10

20/05/13 @ 14.00.

Due to there being no bus service on the island, I decided to walk from my Apt to this venue. After 2hrs & 8 miles later, I was confronted with the front gate to the castle & it was locked. Apparently, closed for the season due to renovation.
The walk was worth it purely for the panoramic view of the island.
