all inclusive is not a good choice in Corfu since there are a lot of other places to visit and the distances are not far. we had our own car and it was easy to find places -the people are friendly and you can freely ask about directions. the hotel was OK, not very clean though and there was a bad smell around, especially at the pool area. the pool wasn't big enough. there was hardly any sea food even though we were at the sea-once they served fish which wasn't enough for everyone and only who got there first could get a bite. if we went back to Corfu, we would try another hotel.

i was there in august 2011

Dear vjollca79,

We would like to thank you for your review. Certainly we always appreciate all well - mannered comments as you provide us the chance to evaluate our services and of course proceed to all necessary changes as an important evaluation indicator.

Despite the fact that our resorts offer quality all inclusive programs, we always encourage our guests to explore the resort surroundings as all locations are strategically selected for their natural beauty and of course the local mentality and authenticity.

Regarding your comments over our dining variety and selection, rest assured that all of your comments have been already addressed to our F&B director and have been thoroughly reviewed with the purpose of setting an even more advanced menu for season 2013. We certainly understand that food variety is a quite subjective matter and we seriously take into account not only the local tradition, but all regional preferences.

Definitely, we always recommend to our guests to advise us prior their booking as we can provide them our suggestions according to their needs and preferences. We always publish all required information regarding our resorts, just for our guests to be fully informed over our services and facilities and avoid any miscommunications. Clearly the specific hotel location and morphology does not allow us to intervene with specific renovation plans in order to extend our facilities.

Despite your final saying, I really hope that we will be able to welcome you in one of our resorts and of course to earn your trust and reach your level of expectations.

All Inclusive is not usually our choice but the cost of this entire package was less than 2 flights to Cyprus (our preferred holiday destination). Considering the state of Greece and its people at the moment, the staff of this hotel are doing an excellent job. Some of them told us they would be out of work once the season ends. It amazed us how they managed to stay calm amid all the ill-mannered people (and there were a lot!) who were staying there.
The hire car sat in the hotel car park all week as the roads were a mess; there was no need to go anywhere as the beach and the weather were perfect. As far as "standard" rooms go ours was excellent; large, airy, large bathroom, big roof terrace complete with clothes hanger so there was no need to throw wet swimsuits and towels over the balcony. It was typical of a hotel built in the sixties, today's modern hotel rooms are much smaller.
The food was what we expected for an all-inclusive package. Lots of choice, excellent salads but the meat element was rubbish. However, for people who do not normally eat 3 meals a day we managed to gain rather a lot of weight! I have to say it was nice to get home to decent bottle of wine.
So, after our vey hectic summer it was the perfect place to unwind and personally I found the beach one of the best I have visied anywhere in Europe.

Room Tip: Must have a sea view

Full congratulations to all the staff at the Aquis Pelekas Beach Hotel in Corfu you truly made our Holiday sensational.

On booking in we were told that our room is not yet vacated and for now would we mind using a temporary room for 1 night in repayment they gave us a complimentary meal in the Al-a-Cart restaurant (which is normally chargeable) who really looked after us. The first room was basic but hey it was just one night only so hey ho.

The following day after lunch we were taken to our new room (wow is the only word I could describe it) very clean and the view was amazing, our balcony looked out onto miles of beach and sea, incredible, we watched the sun set which on its own was picturesque.

Reading some of the negative comments on here we were a little concerned and feared the worse but we didnt need to, it was an awesome holiday.

There was a slight smell in some area of the hotel but it had disappeared by the following day, the hotel room was very spacious, clean and had daily housekeeping.

The food was simular through out the week, but always had a fantastic variety of salads, fruit, local cuisine, as well as the pork, beef and chicken, vegetables and of course the usual chips. The deserts consisted of cheesecakes, mouse style deserts and for course the fruit selection was limited, nectarines, organges, apples, kiwi and bananas.

Local wines and beers were on tap, the only downer is the half pint glasses for the beer, as soon as I touched down back in England I was screaming for a pint of lager, it could be something the hotel could improve. They have a plastic glass policy poolside which is totally understandable but again it was half pints, I am not a big drinker so wasnt too much of a problem but was frustrating getting up all the time for another half a pint on a night when you could have just relaxed with a pint. We travelled to Menorca last year and they served large beers there in big glasses it was awesome 2 of those sorted me out on a night just fine :)

Hotel staff were exceptionally friendly everyone, from reception to restaurant they could not do enough for you, a tremendous asset to the hotel and aquis resorts.

The hotel is situated right on the beach front, there is a bar hexagon shaped to the left as you look out of your sea view balcony, this we found to be extremely expensive, 3 halves of coke and a small bottle of Heineken cost us £13.40 euros, quite pricey!! and the staff were not falling over themselves to assist you.

The resort was very much shutting down when arrived, the village of Pelekas is a short walk up the mountain (rather challenging walk) but your rewarded with the best views you could imagine. The village was pretty much closed for the season I was hoping to find a Taverna that could give me a large glass of beer (I cant believe i climbed a mountain and still came back empty handed) :)

Flys, Wasps and the weather was a little disappointing but this is not the hotels fault, oh and the mozzies wow they are tenacious, even the air con didnt kill them and their bites itch for england.

Would we go back, yes but in a more busier period as there would be more to do.

Well done again to everyone at the hotel.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must !

To start with we had difficulty finding the Hotel. With a hire car from the Airport I had obtained Google map directions to the hotel but with the roads and signposting on Corfu being what they are we spent some time finding the right road down. However half way down the road was closed and obviously had been for some years - bad directions from Google. We eventually got there by following the road uphill to Pelekas and then turning off left by the big pink house on the hairpin bend. Then you have to turn left at the small T junction.
Finally arrived in the perfect idyllic location. Very large room with sitting area and sea view, long way up from the restaurant and beach but it kept us fit, there is a cliff rail car to get you up and down if you want but it still leaves some steps and slopes to negotiate.
Lovely shallow sandy beach with crystal clear water and plenty of sun beds, although you have to pay 5eu a day for these, plus decent beach showers. Some pedalos and canoes for hire and ringos if you like that sort of thing.
Restaurant and food superb and the service and staff were all spot on. Wasps in abundance but basically not a real problem if you don't have any hang-ups about them.
Thoroughly recommend, especially good for families with young children. Hope to go back again if the deal is right!

Room Tip: Must be a room with sea view otherwise your terrace is just a sunless pit.

Idyllic location, but little difficult to find if you do your own transfer, but you can never get lost its an island, you need a car or you are stuck on site unless you take little bus up hill. Perfect if all you want to do is chill. Lovely Island, Staff that are very helpful, food in abundance which has huge choice, but gets a little wearing after a week. Too much. Bad points, gym was very poor, bit of an odour if the wind was blowing the wrong way, but hey its Greek drains. Wasps were rife but more interested in the daylight hours in your food. Otherwise for children and families perfect, perfect beach and sea. Would be back in a heartbeat.
