We travelled as a party of 3 couples at the end of September, was a bit concerned after reading some of the reviews because of wasps/food/location but we had a wonderful holiday. We booked with Olympic Hols and the transfer was great,they had a mini bus waiting,we were at hotel for lunchtime. The only problem was when we arrived even though we had specified we didnt want bungalows because of the walking difficulties of members of our party that is what reception told us we had! we refused after seeing where they were and they gave us 3 rooms in hotel,which if they had why didnt they just give us in the first place. Once rooms were sorted we had a wonderful week. The rooms were clean and a good size with everything you could need, the view of the sea and beach and sunset was wonderful. The food was varied and good, could have been bit hotter but when you help yourself it cant always be kept red hot. The drinks were good, not strong but thats not a bad thing when you are having a few!! There was a good range of cocktails and you never had to wait long to be served. The entertainment was low key, but the music quiz and the greek night were really good, and we managed to entertain ourselves.
The pool area was fine, we always got a sunbed and yes there are a lot of wasps and i am scared of them but they were that high on sugar they were very calm, you can just waft them away no problem, by the end of the week we could just accept them, didnt hear of anyone getting stung. As for mossies, i usually have a really bad reaction to them so went well prepared, but only got two bites. I did see few people with a lot of bites but just take repellant with you and its fine. The pool was cold but that was great in the afternoon as it was so hot it was nice to cool down!. The sea was warm and clear, fantastic.
The steps from hotel to the beach we thought were ok, and believe me it was a lot easier going to the village down the steps and along the boardwalk on the the beach than going from the reception along the road,now that is a hard trek!!!! Its was a pleasant walk along the beach and there are a few shops and bars in the village. We got a mini bus from the hotel to Corfu Town and it was well worth the visit.
All in all we had a wonderful time,clean hotel, friendly staff, good food and drink in a stunning location and no children, if you just want to relax this would be the hotel for you, if you like action and plenty of places to walk to then maybe not.
