I never write reviews but have got to a out Restia Suites in Corfu. I also never usually go to the same place twice but have now changed my mind and definately will come back here again. Where do I start? A superb private suite with garden, private pool, modern furnishings, steam room, fantastic service, situated on the beach, excellent food, a private hannaman in the garden, maid service twice a day and the garden done once a week as well. Spoilt!! This is a fantastic 7 day holiday for adults only. The only thing that I would change next time is to hire a car to see the island as the site is quite remote and that is what makes it fab. Also although the food is excellent (and I am really fussy) you will have tried everything in 7 days. However I always believe that a restricted menu is better in order that the food is great and it is! There are a couple of themed nights (mezze and Greek nights but there is an extra charge for those). There is a barbecue night which is included on a Thursday which is included. The breakfasts have an amazing.choice of food and a special menu for egg dishes! The staff are all very polite all round the hotel and the little touches go miles (eg the manager greeting you off your bus with his dog and offering you champagne etc)! The sun loungers all have tasteful padded cushions, the bedding is changed daily, there are spa treatments, a gym, a reception library with Internet and a library, a shop selling limited vital supplies (there is a small supermarket about 10 minutes walk away) and you can ask for a wifi router when you arrive but they are subject to availability. Even if you don't want the private pool there was always space round the main pool. I wondered what the evenings would be like with no entertainment but having dinner at 8pm by 9 to 9.15 we were completely relaxing by the bar on sofas by candlelight overlooking the main beautifully lit pool and often didn't realise where the time went! There are only 30 suites which is great and the bar is at the other end of the site (1 minute from our room).
Some people booked taxis from the airport for 60 euros(one way) which I still do not understand? Our air conditioned bus took an hour and we saw the island? Mad!!
So hopefully I have done Restia Suites justice in my first ever review but am scared to say any more in case everyone wants to go there!! What a relaxing 7 days! Don't want to go home now which is unusual for me after 7 days but needs must and we will be seeing this place again!
Definately happy to answer the questions. Oh and by the way to the negative responder who didn't have nuts and crisps with their drinks... buy some if that is all you had to worry about!! Mad!! Don't listen just look at the over 199 excellent reviews which we did and which convinced us to go thank goodness. Enjoy!!
