The main hotel is nice, the pool area is clean, the staff are very friendly and the food very good and reasonably priced. There is a small pebble beach just across the road.
There's a really nice family atmosphere, Greek night and BBQ is a great ice breaker.
Our apartment in the older 'annexe' was disappointing though; we expected basic, but this room was badly in need of refurbishment, there is no A/C and as we were on the ground floor, were unable to leave a window open at night because of unwanted 'guests'. Cleaning/laundry was somewhat haphazard. Didn't spoil the holiday, but we had quite a few uncomfortable nights.
The 15 minute walk to Benitses became a bind after the 1st week and is quite dangerous at night, you're better off getting a car. Some parts of the resort are somewhat run-down, but the main square is nice.
Michael's Taverna is only 5 minutes walk away, the food is fantatsic traditional Greek fare, and you can sit out overlooking the sea - very romantic.
Recommended eatery in Benitses - Pizza 'Flogas' - bruchetta with gouda and Corfian beer. Also follow the sign for the 'Old Village' for gyros pita from the kebab shop and a great chinese. 'Big Bite on the beach' for a substantial English breakfast
For a little more variety and cheaper prices, try the green bus to Moraitica/Messongi - the Rose Garden is a great restaurant in a lovely setting. For something a little less formal, try 'Edesma' - XXL gyros pita for €3.90 and large beer €1.70.
