Not long back from a great holiday in Corfu. It was the first time either myself or my partner had been to Greece and we were very impressed. We were greated with a glass of sparkling wine when we arrived around 1.30pm while we waited for our room to be read, We had requested a seaview room, which all the rooms seems to be anyway. The room was large, clean, bright and had lovely views over the pool and bay. The food was amazing, far better than we thought it would be, a great choice every single night, and they dont hold back on breakfast either! A great choice of food ranging from traditional greek food to italian, british, spanish and several other treats. We had no complaints at all about the food or a 2.60 for a bottle of water but all the other drinks seemed extremely over priced, it was around 8.40 for a vodka and another 2.50 for a mixer, this put us off spending our evenings enjoying the hotel entertainment which ranged from greek dancers to magicians etc, we opted for Woodpeckers across the road. The location of the hotel was fantastic with an excellent choice of shops all within a few hundred yards, not a huge choice like you would get in Spain or Turkey, but who needs 100 shops selling the same tack? The bus into corfu town is excellent at 1.50 although very crowded and uncofortable especially for kids, older folk or people with wheelchairs or prams. We were offered a list of daytrips from the hotel but we got a trip to albania for 20euros cheaper using NSK travel just across from the Dassia Chandriss, although Thompsons say they will refund the difference which is good. The pool areas are fantastic although be early as the sun loungers are all taken by 8am at the latest, this is against hotel policy and it would be nice to see the staff take the towels away and put them into a lost property as it is very frustrating when the loungers have towels on them and no-one appears until the afternoon. The beech was lovely with no such shortage of loungers. Overall we were very impressed and are already looking to return for 2 weeks taking in a cruise one of the weeks aswell. A special mention must go to Jenni our holiday rep who was always around and extremely helpful.

Thank you for your extensive Trip Advisor review from Chandris Corfu hotel. I am very pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. Glad that you enjoyed our welcome treat while you waited for your room to be ready. I see you find in our buffets a lot of variety & great choice of food ranging from traditional Greek food to Italian, British, Spanish and several other treats. Concerning the drink prices I am sorry you missed the launch of our summer promotion campaign which started some days ago including two happy hours at the main bars and special prices at the beach bars (the lagoon bar and the Dassia beach bar). We strive to provide our guests with the ultimate Corfu Chandris hotels experience and certainly hope to welcome you back in the near future perhaps next summer.
