Overall this is not a bad choice. Although there is much that could be better I would not be worried about booking it, there are no hidden disasters.
I booked this last minute and did not have the chance to be too picky as my main problem with the hotel is the tiny family rooms. The 'family' room has 2 single beds and 2 bunk beds, all nose to tail. Very crammed if all 4 of you are trying to stand up at the same time. But hey you dont spend much time in the room so I forgive it. The balconies at the sides of the hotel 'Mountain view' actually do have a sea view but are so tiny that I would have paid for the sea view larger balconies if I had have known. With young kids slipping our on the balcony in the evening is a great option after bed time, there was just enough room for the 2 of us and our lilo!
Food! Ok, so repetitive, yes, but most all inclusives are, the problem here was lack of choice. They kept everything very greek which I love but it did mean that my son ate chips, salad and spagetti for a week. I could not have done with all inclusive for 2 weeks but in the main it was tasty. Lovely deserts, oops. The drinks are poor. I would certainly recommend that if staying here just go B+B. The breakfast is plentiful and its nice to travel around to little tavernas for reasonable meals. the snacks were basically toasties and biscuits. POOR!! Even a day time salad bar would have been lovely.
Reception were not very helpful. It took me until the last day to find out that YES there IS a toilet near the pool. It is well hidden by kids club and nobody seems to accept its existance, perhaps the staff prefer the tourists not to use it so they can as 3 separate staff members working around the pool denied any toilet except in the main foyer!!
The location on the beach is FAB. A beautiful bay. just 5 steps from the pool so you dont have to chose to spend the day by the pool or on the beach, you can do both. The ski club was great and offerred discounts for multi buys. The sea was glorious. The bus in to Corfu Town runs very regularly but is obviously very crammed and HOT. Take Fluids!
BEST BARGAIN RESTAURANT: at the base of the large church at the back of the old fort there is a run down area by the harbourl This used to be the old port and looks to be under renervation. Beneath the steps right on the sea front is an old taverna I have been visiting for years. Its called the Yali Taverna and its simple real Greek food at a reasonable price.
