This wonderful hotel set in beautiful gardens is a must for anyone who wants to stay on Corfu. We arrived following a cruise and were made to feel welcome from the outset. Reception staff were on hand to ensure registration was seamless, and showed us to our room. The rooms in the main block (can't speak for the garden villas) look recently refurbished and had a lovely view over the bay. There are lots of steps to get to and from the beach and pool/pool bar areas. (Note: Thomson brochure says "some steps". Understatement of the year springs to mind). It didn't spoil our stay but just be aware. If considering staying here take the option of the Premium Plus Package as the drinks are extremely expensive. We have travelled all over the world and these must be the highest prices we have come across. I suspect the austerity measures might have something to do with it. Having said that the drinks quality are very good. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and always willing to help, and their service was excellent.
