We have recently returned from our holiday to the Coral - and loved every minute!
This is a family run hotel and all the staff are fantastic - cleaners, reception, bar, restaurant.
The Coral has an enviable position right on the seafront. It is only a five minute walk to the resort of Roda where there is a sandy beach which shelves very gently into the sea.
The hotel is extremely clean and modern. We stayed in the garden wing on the ground floor. Our room was spacious and clean, plenty of storage, beds firm but comfortable, and the bathroom was well equipped with a walk in corner shower, vanity unit and loo. Bath and hand towel were provided and changed during the week.
Our room had a terrace which opened onto a very nice lawn with shrubs and trees.
The pool area is exceptionally clean and well equipped with plenty of sun loungers, chairs and a hammock. The pool bar serves drinks, meals and lovely ice cream. There is also a basket where you can leave your half-used suncreams. In Reception there is a bookcase where you can borrow paperbooks too.
The food for breakfast was fine. (Sometimes Greek breakfasts are quite basic.) There was always a choice of three cereals, three jams, a hot choice, wonderful Greek yoghurt, fruit, cooked meats and cheese, toast, brioche and wonderful chocolate spread. The coffee was very good, although the fruit juice was a bit watery.
The food in the hotel restaurant is excellent, and the Greek Night and BBQ Evening should not be missed.
The hotel offers room safes, fridges and air con - all at reasonable rates. Hair dryers are available from Reception - free of charge.
Roda is on the level and would be ideal for people with mobility problems.
We ate out in the village and our recommendation would be the Newport (on the seafront - with wonderful sunsets - the Seafood Saganaki is fabulous!) A meal there with starter, main course, beer/wine would be about 15 euros per person.
We went on two excursions:
One to Corfu town by boat in the day, which was most enjoyable (booked at the agents next to the Hotel)
A day to Kassiopi - an absolutely wonderful resort, with a lovely harbour, but could be rather hilly. (booked at Reception)
There is a good supermarket about 5 minutes walk from the Hotel - turn right out of the hotel - although there is also a supermarket virtually next to the Hotel too.
Corfu Airport is quite basic once you are through to Departures - so if you have the time and wish to eat there is a seated cafeteria prior to going through to Departures.
You will realise from the above that we had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the Coral Hotel and do hope that we will return.
