Is Tsilivi right for us?

I'm hoping we can get some advice on the general vibe and feel of Tsilivi, especially at night time. My husband and I are considering booking the Contessina Suites for the end of June, we love the idea of going out at night for dinner and finding a quiet bar for drinks. We're not keen on resorts with clubs, loud bars and British pubs. I don't want to sound antisocial, I just want to make sure Tsilivi has that chilled relaxed scene I'm hoping for! TIA.

May be you'd be better off looking at Alykes or Alykanas much more of a traditional Greek resort in my opinion.

I agree with barnstyke, Although NOT a 18/30 resort it is a bit lively & a little commercialised but with something for every one. We love it " 57/65 yr young.& going back end of may. Just don't think Tsilivi is quite what your looking for by the sound of it.

i have to disagree , been going to Tsilivi since 2001 on and off i am in my late 50's and love Tsilivi, Planos is lmore lively , but Tsilivi town is more relaxed with a mixture of lovely resturants and bars to suit all , we love it there and stayed in Planos and tsilvi town area , preffering tsilivi town lovely resturants near beach and some nice quiet bars if you want them and some with music if you want that too .

I agree with pinky! Been to tsilivi six times now and going again in August for 2 weeks. We are both in our late forties and enjoy both quaint and lively bars. It's not a 18 - 30 resort and does not have 1 nightclub! My advice would be to book for tsivili as it has everything you'll want and then use local transport or hire a car and go and visit alkyes etc. Good luck choosing

Although there are plenty of livelier bars there are also enough quieter spots off of the main road where there are bars and tavernas that have a much more chilled atmosphere,as said above there's something to suit all tastes in Tsilivi.

Hi Holly B

we too like to go out and enjoy an evening meal and then on to a bar for a quiet drink and Tsilivi fits the bill.We have been to Alykanas and enjoyed it but feel Tsilivi gives us a bit more choice .We are regular visitors to Tsilivi and will be back again in June.

If you decide on this resort we are sure you will not be disappointed.

Tsilivi is much more commercialised than Alykes and Alykanas and that's a fact. With Alykes and Alykanas being so close together it's like one big resort. Just a 10 to 15 minute flat stroll from centre to centre.
