Firstly I'd like to start with this;
Joy, Micky, Costa, George, Shaun...
5 of many Morfeas staff members who will make you feel like family, and that is the reason I've learnt their names over the course of my holiday, because they are like family by the end of the holiday.
Joy is your mother hen type who was particularly helpful when the sun turned my skin into red blisters!
Micky is your 'salt of the earth' type bloke who if given the time, will pass down abit of knowledge and wisdom of the area that you may find useful on your stay.
Costa does abit of everything in the hotel, and can often been seen chatting to guests and cheering the place up.
George is your night shift reception member on staff and barman, he is the person you'll spend most of your time with if you like partying, he'll be there when you walk in at 5-6-7 in the morning with a cold drink for you and a smile on his face.
Shaun is your rep...as a guy from Newcastle I should hate this lad (as he is from Sunderland), but he's a very honest guy...advising on which events are worth while and which are more trouble then they are worth. He is very impartial which his advice and we didn't manage to beat his prices on events while we were their.
There was a immature group of people while we stayed there who did leave a bad rating for this hotel, so I will use their categories in my own review and be as honest as possible in it. Please take away from it what you will;
Rooms: The rooms themselves are very clean, and they get serviced by the maids daily except on Sunday's I believe, which is something of a rarity in Corfu as the economic state of the place at the moment isn't great and many of the hotels can't afford to pay maids for their service 6 out of 7 days. A fridge with freezer compartment comes free with your room as does a kettle. Air con is available at a 40 euro charge for a week, personally I stayed up till 7 in the morning each night, caught 2-3 hours sleep then hit the pool so didn't find it too necessary, however some of the members of my group spent a little more time in the room and stated they would get it next time they came. It's import to state that if you have never been to Corfu or Greece, you will be hard pushed to find anywhere with a bath tub, the shower however is good enough to meet your needs on a drinking holiday.
Security: You have a safe deposit box in your room which will cost you 10 euros for the week, I always get this on holiday and would never say it is never needed, the hotel staff I trust in most hotels but you can never be sure of other guests. I can confidently say I don't think I'd of had a problem at the Morfea's, but why take the chance over 10 Euros.
Hygiene: Some of this was covered in the first topic in regards to maids and the showers.
Other notable things are you will be informed that you need to throw and used tissue into your hygiene bin and not in your toilets. It is important to remember that all of Greece and Corfu will ask you to do this as the country in general doesn't have great sewage systems, these systems can also smell at times but again, is no fault of the hotel and is a improvement needed in the country. I have travelled to Greece before and was aware of this, which wasn't enough to put me off as I have been to Greece many times since.
Staff: Again mentioned before, they are very much like family while on holiday. They will go above and beyond for you whether it be to introduce you to new people if your group is shy, give you directions, tips, first aid, a free shot of Ouzo here and there. Very nice people.
And that's it I guess.
I'm a firm believer that the people you are with make a holiday, I met some wonderful people while I was there and brought my best mates with me, but it really helped picking the right hotel.
Thank you for the great time guys, and an emotional send off.
See your shortly hopefully!
I'd request a room in the direction facing the pool. And also room A-18, partied hard in that pl...
