I posted on both the Greece and Zante forums a few weeks ago. We're hoping to book a late deal to Zante for this Summer. I looked at Kalamaki a few years ago, and very nearly booked to go there. The thing that put me off was that I was worried the resort was too quiet for us.
We're a young couple, and I am struggling to find a resort with the right balance. I don't want somewhere loud, full of night clubs, stalls selling glowsticks, that sort of thing, but at the same time, we do like a large choice of places to eat, like a cocktail or five, and this is why I am a bit worried about Kalamaki.
At the minute I am stuck between Tsilivi and Kalamaki. We're on a tight budget and accomodation does seem to be better value in Kalamaki but I am worried we will be bored. During the day we're happy to lounge around on a nice beach or by the pool, but we do like to do a few trips too, have a wander round shops/markets. On a night as I say we're pretty chilled out, but I don't want to be returning to the hotel at 10pm every night bored.
Does Kalamaki sound like it would be too quiet for us? I know Laganas is nearby, but we are on a budget so can't afford to be spending a fortune on taxi fares.
Another thing that concerns me is prices in resort. I have never visited any of the Greek Islands as quite a few people have told me they find them expensive. What are prices like for meals and drinks? We are hoping to stay self catering so a rough idea of supermarket prices would be fab too.
