“Fantstic value for money”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We went the first two weeks in October a cheap holiday at just over £500 each. The resort is not as big as you first imagine as when you find your way round everything is quite close. Food was really good and anyone that says different must be a real fussy eater. Deff go and have an al-carte meal well worth the money. Room spacious and very clean. Staff were really friendly and helpful and of course we met Dawn what a wonderful person, true what everyone has said about her. Just out the back of the hotel to the left you will find shops, bars and restaurants all worth a visit. We did the island tour, this was a good but long day out, eve trip to Corfu town a lovely eve did not take the boat trip that was on offer so spent a nice leisurely eve. Went on a day trip to Albanian again we did not take the coach trip and spent a lovely day in the port. A great hotel and well worth the money paid a deff good 3 star hotel. Recommended.

Room Tip: We were in block 10. Had sea side view and mountain view. Not a busy block on the edge of the resort...

We have just returned on 14th October 2013 from a fortnight at this hotel. It was truely a fabulous experience. The apartment, food pool area and staff were all first class. This holiday was third star price for probably five star stay. We were lucky enough to be in the new apartments that were not due to be open until next year, and they had the wow factor. Dawn was so helpful and willing to give any advise and help that we needed, in fact the only let down was the manager so walked around with his head down all the time.

Room Tip: no need to take pool towels as you get then provided and you can change them every 3 or 4 days for n...

Have recently returned from 7 day holiday. Enjoyed a very relaxing time in a very good quality room in new block. End of season feel about the local town but that was perhaps to be expected as hotel was in throes of winding down for winter.
I had read reviews before travelling and must agree food was very "samey" every night but we always found something to eat. Adequate but not memorable and have enjoyed better fare in other AI package hotels.
Locally had a lovely meal in Oceano restaurant and a warm welcome from Spiros in Europa bar, both just outside of hotel complex.
Most disappointing perhaps was the general lack of friendliness of hotel staff. (there were one or two exceptions!). Very difficult to engage in any pleasantries. I would think a hotel best suited to families with children as there seemed to be good facilities for kids, most of whom seemed to be having a great time.

Room Tip: A room in the new blocks would worth paying extra.

Speedy check in, Porters took our bags to the rooms whilst we caught the last few minutes of lunch. Food was brilliant usually with all inclusive it's a bit hit and miss but myself and my partner found something to eat everyday and the grilled chicken on Mexican night was AMAZING!. Other guests push in and aim straight for you but you get that in most all inclusives people have no manners.We did hear a few wenglish people complaining about the food saying ooh this beef is hardly topside... you've not payed topside prices so you get what you pay for in my opinion! Room was large and clean we had a ground floor room which was quite noisy as we were right by the entrance I don't think that's the hotel's fault once again it's the guests they just don't have respect for others didn't feel relaxed as there was constant noise.Towels were changed everyday sheets were changed several times during the stay. We aren't really drinkers but there is a large selection of drinks available and you can go and get your own at meal times which is good. Ice cream available all day they have a cake and coffee snack between lunch and dinner. I wouldn't like to be here during peak season as I feel it would be just too busy, lot's of entertainment for the kids. Recommend renting a quad bike from George's quads we had an amazing day out exploring Agios Georgios on them.Lot's of bars within a few minutes walk if you get Cabin fever. I must say the staff seem quite miserable there were a few who would give you a smile in the restaurant but in general they were grumpy. There is a bus at 10.20 every morning that will take you into Corfu town its 2.90 each way it's worth a nosey around for the day. We would go again it's a good base for exploring Corfu and a cheap holiday but if you're expecting the Ritz I suggest you pay Ritz prices.

Me and my friend booked a last minute holiday to this resort in corfu. It was our first time in Greece and it cost £320 each. We arrived in the afternoon, we had to wait a few minutes to check in and then we were given our room keys and we were advised that the porters would bring our cases to our room. So far so good !!!!

The room was basic clean and spacious, the only time we spent in the room was to sleep so it was absolutely fine.

The food I have to say is the best I have ever eaten in an all inclusive resort !! There was so much choice from hot to cold salads and it was different ever day!! The food wasn't the warmest but there is microwaves if needed.

There is a wide choice of alcoholic and soft drinks which you can get from different bars throughout the day and night.

The amenities are fantastic there are 3 large pools one with slides for the kids which they seem to love !. The beach is beautiful and is a few minutes walk from the apartments. We also payed to have a massage in the spa and a fish pedicure which was brilliant.

We visited corfu town which was 2.90 euros one way on the bus, the bus picks up from outside the hotel. It takes about 45 mins to get there but is well worth a trip such a beautiful town !!.

One thing I would say was that because it was coming to the end of the season there was a few things closed such as the seaside restaurant
And the entertainment was very sparse however you have to appreciate that is was the end of season. I would definitely recommend this resort to family's and couples who want a relaxing break!!!!!! We had a fantastic time :)

This hotel was perfect in every aspect. We had a lovely room very spacious with a nice balcony which was located in the middle of the resort in block D, perfectly placed in between all 3 pools and close enough to reception and the beach, just across from the main restaurant. The staff were all lovely and helpful to everything you asked or requested. The food was very good with a good selection and different fresh cooked food everyday and the head chef was amazing! he makes brilliant kebabs and hamburgers which were to die for! overall being mine and my girlfriends first holiday together it was the perfect place to go and we would recommend this hotel to anybody! It really has something for everyone, and being a travel agent myself it is definitely somewhere i will be recommending to future customers of ours, the excursion to Paxos and Anti Paxos is well worth a go, very good value for money and a good enjoyable day out too. Overall an amazing time and definitely somewhere i will be re-visiting in the coming years!

I have just returned from a lovely holiday at the resort. The rooms were basic, but clean and comfortable]. The hotel was lovely with most of the staff very friendly. The pools were clean and welcoming. The beach was just 55 mins walk from our room. Also lots of very friendly and cute cats, who got a lot of attention from everyone.
The weather was in the 20;s, but we did have a couple of thunder storms over night, If you want a sun, sea relaxing holiday, this is ideal for you. There are a few shops just alittle walk from the hotel and taverns as well.

I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask either a room with a pool or beach view, as beautiful scenery
