We booked a break here with half board.
The room we had was quiet on the first floor. It was comfortable, with a kitchen and fridge in a wardrobe, useful for boiling water to drink! The room was very large and roomy. We asked for a bathmat, and were provided with one. The bathroom tiles were very shiny and potentially slippery.
The wi fi internet connection in the room was free, and worked extremely well. The satellite TV only had CNN in English, but we found the wi fi made up for this.
The outdoor pool was lovely, and the prices of ice cream and drinks very reasonable. Plenty of shade under the trees, but no enough sun umbrellas. Weather was great and we could relax by the pool.
We did a coach trip around Corfu which was excellent.
The evening meals were delicious, but a fixed menu was served on half board. Fortunately we liked everything that was served. The waitress and manager of the bar restaurant were charming and gave a personal service. A choice of meals would be appreciated.
Breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choice.
The manager and receptionist were extremely friendly and helpful at all times.
The beach reached by a short walk down the hill, and a busy main road, is one of the best we have seen abroad. With a duck pond, and access to an ancient Venetian Boatyard.
When we left we were waived goodbye by the Manager and Owner. This is a testament to the dedication of this hotel to look after all of it's visitors, like one of the "family".
We experienced mosquito bites, but understand that this is the norm at this time of the year all over Corfu.
