My boyfriend and two of our friends went to the Blue Diamond studios in Corfu in August 2009 and we had a brilliant time, we went for 2 weeks but ended up being there 17 days due to early/late flights and transfers that made our holiday under £300 each.
We booked with co op travel and flew from manchester aiport.
Blue diamond studios are pretty basic, which is all we needed, it had a microwave/hob which we used once and a sink with basic utensils. The room is typically greek with single beds and a sliding patio door, we were on the bottom floor but i think if we could have we would have tried to get to the top floor where the views would have been amazing.
We payed for air con for the first week and werent asked to pay again, it was pretty dear (i cant remember how much - around 80euro for the week) but it was so worth it as i couldnt sleep in the 25+ degrees at night.
The pool is lovely but the typical english holiday makers do as our stereotype suggests and get up early to hog the sun loungers! But it wasnt too busy, with around 15 studios there were never more than 40 people around the pool.
The trips to paxos and anti paxos are crucial if you want to explore, its a brilliant day out, kids welcome, pretty early start but you have a full day away on the boat with a really friendly crew and you jump off the boat into the clearest sea - amazing.
The bars/clubs and restaurants in agios are perfect if you want a little excitement and culture but is the complete opposite of kavos (we drove through kavos and saw disgusting english people hungover spread over kavos like a rash - a real embarrassment).
Sidari is a good place to visit for the day with amazing cliffs where the young ones jump off into the sea.
The beaches are fantastic, quad bikes from georges are a must if you want to travel around the bottom of the island. We rented a car for the north and Corfu town and visited Aqua land which was also brilliant (tickets can be bought from blue diamond rep at a cheaper rate).
Definitley recommended to those who want a quiet get a way in the sun with little hassle but a little excitment, do as much or as little as you want. 2 weeks it more than enough time to see everything.
