Paradise Bar - (Bars in Tsilivi)

Forget the rest - goto the - BEST BAR IN GREECE - PARADISE
 
                                                           
 
What a bar,  we found Paradise Cocktail Bar on our first night in Tsilivi, it looked the most lively of all the bars so we thought we would just drop in for a quick drink then go and get some sleep as we had already been up for 36 hours - 3 hours later (2.30am) we eventually left and staggered back to the hotel.
 
We spent every night of our holiday in the Paradise and everybody we introduced to the bar - loved it.
 
Thanks guys - Yiannis, Tony, Stavros & Shrek the perfect hosts, full of energy and such a good laugh.
 
Thanks for all the free shots and the perfect cocktails - Yiannis special & Tony special are a must to try as is the house drink - KISS THE BULL.
 
Guys you made our holiday the best yet and we promise we will be back very soon, thanks very much.
 
Everybody who visits Tsilivi must goto the Paradise Bar and experience the atmosphere -        as Yiannis would say " you can never leave "

Lifetime Beach Bar - (Bars in Tsilivi)

Andy & Lou           

What a great lunch time snack / drinks bar - on the beach - perfect.

We had both food & drinks there on several occasions, very good menu selection - quality was spot on and the price was very good.

Try the fresh juices ( watermelon & mixed )

If you like omelettes, you must try the fete cheese omelettes,add your fillings.

Very clean, and very friendly.  Must say hello to Laura who looked after us everytime we were there,  cheers.
 
We would highly recommend Lifetime Snack bar to everyone visiting Tsilivi beach.

Just back from a week at the Zante Maris - very nice hotel.

We had a fantastic room, with full sea view - we paid extra but worth every penny.
 
The hotel is very,very clean and the staff are excellent - very obliging.
 
Perfect beach setting - and well situated for the shops and bars - only about 5- 10 min walk.
 
I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Tsilivi - yes it's not the cheapest - but good value for money, and a good hotel goes a long way to making it a good holiday.
 
My only pointer is the evening meals - I would have liked more greek dishes, but you can always eat out & its so cheap, between 10 / 12 for a meal for 2 with drinks.

Levante Speedboat Trip - (Zante Excursions)

CAPTAIN SPYROS - ZANTE LEVANTE

click to enlarge
  We had already found out about Spyros's boat trips before getting to Tsilivi on the internet.  So the first thing we did when we arrived was to go and book the shipwreck/blue caves trip.  We went on the Thursday and had the most fantastic morning out, it is definitely a trip with a difference.  Spyros is so friendly and got to know us all, taking us straight into the caves (just like the big boats do) NOT !!!.  We took the mick out of them by circling their boat and waving.  Nice one Spyros.

CAPTAIN SPYROS - ZANTE LEVANTE
 
Sorry didn't get to finish
 
Another good thing about this trip is he sails at 8.30am and you return to Tsilivi Harbour by 1.00pm, so you have still got the rest of the afternoon to spend on the beach - you also get a really good tan on the boat.
 
Having had such a great time we immediately booked his other trip, Turtle Island and Keri Caves.  We sat at the rear of the boat as Spyros had told us we would get wet, and we did!!! (Cheers Spyros)  This was the longer trip and Spyros had all the time in the world to wait for the turtles to appear and to let us take photos.  He is the nicest person you could wish to meet, it is worth every penny and great to see someone who lives for their job and loves what he does - just like us Brits!!!!  (If only )
 
Spyros's trips made our holiday, he is genuine, thoughtful and sincere and doesn't just want your money like  other excursions.  The only downside is they have to end , but leave you with great memories .  Can`t wait to get back to Tsilivi and see Spyros .
 
You can book these tours direct with Spyros at around 1.00pm at Tsilivi Harbour when he returns from the morning trips, or with Ian who walks along the beach wearing the cream Levante T Shirt - as a last resort you can also book with Flocas Travel Agency/Car Rentals  near to Tom & Johns Supermarket (not far from Caspers Grill) see the free Tsilivi sky map booklet.
 
So forget the big boats and actually feel the sea with Spyros, the No1Captain!

Well we're back in sunny England after having a fantastic 2 weeks in Tsilivi.  It was great to see you again and the trip was even better than last time if at all possible,  love the new boat!!!   Everyone who loves boat trips should go on the Levante speedboat trip with Spiros, he's an amazing guy who has a fantastic job and makes your holiday very special and is worth every penny.  If you're off to Tsilivi then make sure you book yourself on this trip, either book at his stand between Mambos Bar and Tom & Johns ( he is there most evenings) or along Tsilivi beach. He is far better than the big boats, although a liitle bit more but you get to see everything.

Spiros we are back in September ( 8 weeks and counting), can't wait, missing the sun and the great way of life!!!
 
Thanks again for a gr8 trip and see you soon.
