A really wonderful holiday But..... I booked four double rooms for the family to celebrate me and my wife's 31st wedding anniversary as we spent our honeymoon in Corfu.
We booked nine months in advance and six months before the holiday I requested an upgrade to a double room with a sea view balcony for me and my wife, they noted it and said they would upgrade our room when we arrived, I phoned twice more before the holiday just to remind them.
When we arrived we were given our four double rooms but they informed us that they were full and could not upgrade our room as requested, to our horror our room was a single room with a double bed squeezed in and one tiny wardrobe.
After going back to the reception twice and having a huge argument and threatening to sleep in reception they offered us all another hotel which we refused, in the end they miraculously found us a double room, I would advise anyone to get a sea view room as the back rooms are very dark.
Now the rest of the holiday lived up to the Trip advisor reviews, we had a fantastic holiday, the restaurant was superb and the staff were wonderful, Spiros from Pelekas and Anna our waiters were fantastic and could not be more helpful.
Now the Animation team made our holiday, Giampi, Allice, Nick and Andrea were wonderful, the resort owes a lot to them, they worked wonders with an obvious limited budget, well done guys, we made four good friends and hope to stay in touch.
Access to anywhere other than the resort can be difficult, a huge hill like you have never seen lays between you and the main route to Pelekas or Corfu town but don't get stressed they get you there in the end.
Happy hour at the pool bar between 17.30 and 19.30 where you pay half price for cocktails which are not included in the all inclusive always results in long queues as for some reason they reduce the bar staff from three to one after 17.30, this however does not apply to the Russians who don't queue for nothing they just push into the front and don't give a hoot for anyone.
But overall a fantastic place to stay.
