We stayed at Ostria 20-27th August in apartment 4, a ground floor, one bedroom apartment which was clean and had all the requirements for a comfortable stay. We particularly liked having our own private terrace and the air con was cold! The complex is well-kept, quiet and has a large, clean pool that is the best in the area. There are ample sun beds and the bar snacks for lunch are tasty and reasonably priced.
Sadly, there are two reasons why we wouldn't give this an excellent rating: the first was that the hidden extra of having to pay for the air con on arrival put a 50 euro hole in our budget. I have since taken this up with Cosmos as it is not clearly listed on their web site as payable locally. The second (and main reason) is that we found the owner, Leo, miserable. Not once during our stay did he ask if everything was ok, if we were enjoying out stay and he did not crack a smile. Special mention to Spas the bar man who more than made up for this, but as the owner, we felt Leo could have made us more welcome, Several other guests at the time found him equally miserable.
If we had liked Sidari then this wouldn't have put us off staying at Ostria again though, but we found 'the strip' too young and noisy for us, and the beach is full of fag ends. If you're young and/or have children then this is a great place to visit.
Close to Ostria the Kouros bar is a friendly place to enjoy drinks and we had our best meal of the holiday in a little restaurant just up the road from there (behind Salt and Peppers) which I think was called Bavias?? There's a sign post for it where the road forks - head towards the green supermarket. The Greek Taverna did a tasty and generous meat mezze and we really enjoyed the greek night (Sunday) at Oasis - 15 euros for set menu - not the best food but still a good evening of music and dancing.
Also, pop in to Princess travel and book yourself a trip. We did the Corfu Town evening boat trip (coach to kassiopi to catch the boat) - well worth it.
