Me and my boyfriend visited this hotel in July 2012 and it was one of the best hotels we have been to.
When arriving to the hotel and the coach dropping us at the bottom of the dirt track to be greeted by a Greek entertainment worker I was a little apprehensive and nervous, however I can at least say that I had nothing to worry about.
The rooms are apartments and yes could do with some modernisation but if you are on holiday you do not want to spend all your time in the room. The rooms were spacious and clean. They are set in small blocks and ours was towards the end of the hotel complex towards the road, but was very close to the shops and was very quiet.
The pool area was clean and tidy and plenty of sunloungers around. The restaurant was again clean and tidy and the food was amazing! I am normally a fussy eater when on holiday but I can happily say that I had no problems wasting here and there was a range of food every night to cater to all tastes. They also do snacks at the poolside bar all day long.
All the staff were very helpful and attentive and if you have any questions the you can happily ask any of the staff and they are only too happy to help.
The location is great whilst within easy reach Sidari, a short walk over the main bridge (with the turtles) or along the main beach, this is very touristy but is great for a range of shops. However, just a stones throw away from the hotel is a handful of shops and restaurants. There is also an office that promotes Excursions on this road just outside of the hotel this is good for all the excursions that Corfu has to offer and I booked several trips through this and was very happy with the service provided. I found that whilst First Choice do the excursions they are very very long day excursions and in July is was too hot to be out all day in it.
I would recommend this hotel for couples or for families that they do provide great entertainment. You will not be disappointed if you come here.
