This 2 star complex what just what we expected. Basic but reasonably comfortable. Leslie was very welcoming and always had a cheery wave if she saw us about. You do need a bit of a sense of humour to stay here and if you are a person that finds fault easily this is probably not the place for you. The furniture in our room was functional but rather old. The kitchen had everything we needed. The apartment could have been better maintained. I just laughed when the shower head fell out of the wall whilst I was showering. The bathroom door creaked loudly until I put baby oil on the hinges which kept it quiet for a few days. The cleaner did a minimal job. I don't thing she cleaned the bathroom sink once. We would have cleaned around ourselves but there wasn't a broom, mop and bucket or any other cleaning materials.
Vicky Apartments has a lovely setting by the sea. We were in the old block. It looks like all rooms have sea views. And the view is lovely, over towards nearby islands and the Albanian mountains. The complex is in a quiet area just a few minutes walk from the town centre. Far enough away from the main road so as not to hear the youngsters on their mopeds and cars racing around. Although we didn't use the pool it looked very clean and garden area around the pool was pleasant.
We didn't use the pool bar apart from an arrival 'we're on holiday' drink. We would have used it more if we were made to feel welcome but the barman (I think the owner) is rather quiet and unsmiling, unlike most of the other Greek people in the bars and restaurants. As it was early in the season there weren't many customers so he shut quite early.
San Stefanos is a lovely smallish resort. Plenty of restaurants and bars, shops and supermarkets. Didn't have a bad meal all week. We enjoy walking and can recommend making the effort to walk up the hill to the lovely bar at the top. Wonderful views, good food and drink. They have the local Greek beer on draught. Delicious. You have to try the local beer, brewed a short walk from San Stefanos. It's great.
We had made a mistake booking Vicky Apartments, thinking it was on the outskirts of Corfu town (fault of the map on the website). However, we are glad of the mistake and would return to San Stefanos again in the future and probably to Vicky Apartments.
