During the month of July 2012, I spent a week staying at Loulass Aparthotel in Corfu. This was my first visit to Corfu, so we weren't too sure what to expect. Certianly the area is a little semi-rural - you can reach the beach and nearby town within a fifteen to twenty minute walk however the roads are quite dangerous, especially at night with bad lighting and cliff drops to one side - not recommended for the faint hearted, or older travellers!
The impact of the recession is very noticeable - some beautiful restaurants there, one just across the road, another at the bottom of the hill - but all very dead much of the time. Food is stunning however, and prices reflect the recession so it's incredibly affordable but as a conscientious traveller, I certainly felt guitly paying such low prices for so much food!
Loulass itself is lovely - perfect for a family holiday as there is a pool, onsite-entertainment, kids club etc. Many families may find they do not need to leave the resort at all during the holiday itself. For us (two in mid-twenties) we found it a little too family-orientated at the resort, and too quiet regards nightlife in the nearby towns however this is not the fault of the resort itself.
Costas, who runs it, is very personable and personally greets each guest on arrival, as well as getting on the tour bus at the end of the holiday to shake hands with each guest and thank them for staying there.
One negative point was that you must pay extra to have air conditioning in the rooms, which, in dead heat like we had in Corfu this year, I thought was a little extravagant, and should have been included in the price of the room for the holiday! That aside, no complaints. Bar and restaurant downstairs also. Rooms are cleaned every 2-3 days. Each room has balcony. No TV's in rooms.
For me, I would not return as I seek a different kind of holiday but would recommend to people certainly.
