“fabulous location, accommodation and helpful staff”
Reviewed September 9, 2011

I picked this hotel because of the trip advisor comments, we arrived to be greeted by the manager Nikos, at the end of the drive to the hotel. he then showed us to our apartment, at first I was slightly concerned as it was a ground floor one and I had read that the sea views were better from higher up, however we were very pleased with the standard of accommodation, the location and we still had a sea view. the staff here are excellent, if you need anything they go all out to help. the greek night was entertaining and the rock band night was brilliant.. Nikos played the electric guitar magnificently.

places to eat.. we loved the kanalis own aquarius restaurant... lovely sea views, friendly service and the food was excellent and as reasonable if not slightly cheaper than elsewhere. however we like to try different places and the best are listed below

SUNSET..this bar/restauarant offers excellent value as well as free sunbeds for their customers. the breakfast here was beautiful and I didnt need anything else until the evening. the bar adjoining this restaurant does competitive priced cocktails.

THE ORCHARD..omg we wish we had turned right at end of hotel sooner... this was by far the best meal we had, the owner was telling us an english couple had held their wedding reception there that day. it really is a lovely setting and the butter beans and mousaka are to die for! big portions too. so good we went back the following day!

CARGO bar .. we decided to try this bar after a english man who was eating there kept telling us how good it was and offered me a chip.. it was rhianna tribute night too, the food here was lovely, peppercorn steak was beautiful and my daughter had a few veggie choices to choose from too. the cocktails here were lovely and the singer was excellent. a very enjoyable night.

MEXICAN bar.. if you fancy a change from greek or english try this.. we liked it

PLACES TO VISIT
we went to corfu town, kassioppi and albania
loved corfu town, we want to do the by night tour, visit albania again and try the mountain tour and the beautiful views tour, so it looks like we will have to revisit corfu and kanali would be where I would want to stay.

Room Tip: ground floor had nice sea view but imagine its better higher up, but for ease and convenience we wer...

Fab, Fab, Fab. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. The staff, Nikos, George, Spiros and not forgetting lovely Perry and Kerry - were all just wonderful, nothing too much trouble, from remembering everyone's names drinks & food what everyone liked or didn't. As has been commented before, the food at the Acqarius just excellent, we only ate elsewhere on 4 occasions in 2 weeks. We had a studio (3 of us) and the rest of the family had an appartment. Plenty of room for 3 in the studio, kitchen adequate in both studio and appartment, our next door neighbours even cooked roast chicken. Rooms were cleaned every day and towels changed 2 x weekly. We didn't feel the need to hire a car as the cost of trips were reasonable (we went to Niko's brother near to supermarket down the road). One of the best was the "beach BBQ", corfu town worth a visit but try and arrange it for the evening - far too hot during the day. Try the yellow boat company on the main beach for watersports, we hired a boat for a few hours - the small coves along the coast so worth viewing and stopping for a swim. The only place we have ever returned to is Barbados - so I really think that says it all - can't wait for 19th to get back and then plan for next year.

Room Tip: what ever room you are allocated you won't be disappointed.

This was an ok holiday - nothing special. The apartments were very basic and in need of upgrading. The pool area was always packed with people putting towels on sunbeds early in the morning and not using them until midday. The restaurant was average with many English dishes, we ate there a couple of times but found a lovely Italian Restaurant which we loved. The whole area was too commercialised for us . We did have a sea view but right in front of us was the next door hotel pool with blaring music.. It was good to have a holiday but was pleased to get home. The coach transfer was 2 hours plus. We found the area expensive and tacky.

What a beautiful location. You can see the Albanian mountains and you have a perfect view of the rock and the sea. Am so glad we had a room on the first floor to be able to get such a lovely view. A family of four with children aged 3 and 12, this was such a relaxing holiday, with the beach on a few steps away. We hired a pedalo and slide - 18 euros for two hours. Bargain! Some great restaurants within a few minutes walk as well as the superb Aquarius Taverna on site and many supermarkets on a few hundred yards away. Staff and fellow holiday makers really made this a special holiday and the facilities and rooms were spotlessly clean. We ventured down to the strip only once and decided we were definitely in the better area of the Canal d'amour. It is so pretty. Would love to go back again. Our little boy loved the Greek dancing! A holiday to remember.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room to get a better view.

Lets start with the bad points , THERE ISN'T ANY , it's all good/excellent.The friendliness of the staff, Kelly, Perry, Nikos, Spiros (the BBQ King) and who could forget George? In essence, this is a fantastic holiday if you embrace all that is on offer. The accommodation is beautifully kept, with an onsite gardner tending the beautiful flower beds daily. The food in the Aquarius is wonderful, and the staff have ever smiling faces from early morning until the last oozo has been served. Spiros cooks fantastic barbecue food, and all with a smile. If you have any room left, you can always visit Jeni's for a delicious cheesecake or apple pie! You could not wish for a better place to stay.

We were moved to the Kanali by First Choice - we had originally booked the Angelina Appts - and were we glad! The apartments were clean, roomy and had everything we could need including a sea view. All the 2 bedroom apartments have a sea view. The pool is good and, when we were there, a nice friendly atmosphere around it. Nikos and his staff were all very friendly and helpful as are Spiros, George and their family who run the Aquarius restaurant alongside the pool. It is excellent, some of the best food we ate was there and the 70s rock night on Tuesdays and Greek night on Wednesdays are really good - you have to book though, these nights are very popular. The Canal d'Amour area is sadly run down there are lots of closed businesses and a lot of the bars and restaurants that are open were not busy - even the English bars were only busy when the football was on. But don't let that put you off, there are a number of good tavernas including Konaki, The Face restaurant and The Orchard selling very good greek food and if you want a livelier evening its only a 10 minute walk to Sidari centre. We don't normally go back to a place - there are too many places in the world still to visit - but if we did we would go back to the Kanali and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first or second floor for a better view
