“Thank you Thomas bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Firstly I have to correct the last review at no time during our stay did nico spy on us or any other guests bringing drinks to drink from outside........we stayed 19th/26th October.
All the staff were friendly and had good and friendly banter with everyone,but especially nico and baby nico were really attentive to everyones needs.
My wife on some evenings didn't fancy anything on the menu but was allowed to choose from the bar menu and was cooked with no bother at all.
Really friendly atmosphere met some lovely people.
And at breakfast sky news was played on the tv which everyone there thought it was good.
Rooms were clean but again as with anywhere in Greece you need more bath mats as the floor gets wet.
And yes there is an older clientele at this hotel but some nights we were up drinking to about 1 and they stayed up later than us!!!
It is a quite resort but the wife and I have hectic working life's and enjoyed the peace and quite.
Beach is lovely really nice.
It was nice to go somewhere where your not hassled into buying this and that and being annoyed like you get in some country's.
This is the fourth time we have been to Corfu but the first to Thomas bay.....would we go back YES.
Only negative is long transfer ours was 1.30 mins and pesky wasps but it was funny watching people doing the wasp dance myself included.

Room Tip: Pool view is best

Just arrived back october 2012 with partner. The resort is for older people who want to relax and get abit of sun. Very nice and clean hotel sheets were changed every two days. the last review said it all in a handfull. The dissapointment about the hotel was there were signs up do not used the towels in the bathroom for the floors but after having a shower the floors are wet and dangerous so we have no choice but to use them. Had to keep begging for soap no shower gel fridge kettle ect in room Not much english talking tv channels for you to watch. What can I say about breakfast We paid for half board through thomsons (shame on you thomsons) and got two slice of toast, cheap rubbery cornflakes bowl of fruit and a cup of tea were they used their hands and gave you one tea bag if we wanted a full breakfast we had to pay another £2.50 more could not belive it! it was the same thing every morning dinner was quite fulling but the same desert every evening. The food all tasted cheap and low budget like they were bugeting. I came back thinner than anything and it suppose to be a break away. The drinks ect was expensisive we drank out staff always walk around and watch you to see if you are bringing any food/drink from outside especially nico. Staff was nice enough and gave false smiles like they had too. Be careful what you do in your room or carry the cleaners report everything to the managers and reception we got one towel cleaner reported it and they wanted us to pay for the towel (erm they suppose to be dirty!!!) Sorry I went there it was boring especially for the poor old dears. It was a very quiet resort the beaches were lovely no good shops around so we caught the bus to sidari (30 min) and corfu town centre (one and half min) which had good shops bus stops outside the hotel fares are cheap around three euros. Overall I went to greece it took two and a half hours to get to hotel from the airport we were exhausted but one thing i must give them they gave us dinner when we arrived late around eleven at night thanks but you wont be seeing us there again.

Room Tip: pool and front veiw is good. Its not cheap there you can see that the greeks are stuggling the place...

Returned three days ago after a lovely relaxing week.
From meeting Heather on reception to leaving to come home we found all the staff very helpful and friendly.The rooms and public areas were always spotlessly clean.
The standard breakfast is simple but enough to give a start to the day. Snacks are available all day and the evening meals tend to follow a Greek trend but are very large and tasty.The kitchen would prepare something different if the menu was not to your liking.
There was always sun beds available at any time of the day - maybe in high season there may be more demand, but the hotel was almost full during our stay.
The area is brilliant for walks and getting lost discovering new places.The beach is very good with a place to go "skinny dipping" if you have a mind to walk to the far right end.
There was some form of entertainment every evening albeit Quizz or Karaoke. Best of all it is a Child free hotel and thats priceless.

Arrived after weeks cruise, Heather on reception was most helpful and gave immediate help re complaints regarding luggage from the cruise. The hotel is lovely and clean, staff throughout are most helpful and with a smile. The staff also are very efficient both in the bar and dining room. Overall the food is good, with a decent choice. Breakfast is standard continental but for 2.5 euros you can get a full english if you want. they also had a deal as the hotel was half board, there was an offer of 55 euros for any five days in the week to have lunch consisting of most items on the menu plus a glass of wine and a beer. The swimming pool is very clean although the sunbeds seem to be right on top, space was a bit limited. The beach was a 5 min walk and is great, the sea was so warm for september. There are obviously a lot of people there who go back many times. You will always get a warm reception and we had a great time
We had a room overlooking the hotel & there was a bar directly opposite with music, if you go to bed early (but why would you) expect a bit of noise, but it closes down at midnight. A very enjoyable and relaxing week, hotel entertainment was ok

Room Tip: Rooms over the entrance get the noise from the bars across the road so if you want quiet ask for roo...

Thomas bay hotel review - go b&b not half board

Location very good, centre of town. Can bs a little noisy if your are in a room in the front of the hotel. 4/5

Rooms are excellent, daily clean and twice weekly linen change. The house keeping staff even tidy my shoes into row!! Only downside no fridge, so keeping things cold is diff. Very clean clearly staff take a lot pf pride in the hotel. 5/5

Staff very friendly and genuine, they seem to warm up to you during your stay. Great personalities all staff lovely!!4/5

Food is very basic. Thomson must be paying the Thomas bay hotel very little as the food is dire and is different from food served to paying customers  Did not enjoy the meals very much at all. Veg tends to be tinned, nice potatoes, rice overcooked or hard and the main dish. I suffer from allergy to white bread and had to buy my own bread for breakfast! The food really let's the whole hotel down.1/5
Despite the staffs attitude and lovely nature, the food is generally crap and the dinning experience is some what interrupted in the form of a flat screen tv in centre focal point of the dinning room, normally playing the news in the morning and skysports news at night - not all English love football!!! 

One morning we found in our (tinned) fresh fruit salad foil and another evening my wife choked on cling film in her Greek salad. 

my advise would be to go for the chicken shish kabab and greek salad and avoid eating there any other nights!! Had water melon one had ants in and was very warm. Nice touch a side order of ant!!!

I would love to invite a food critic to eat as a guest at Thomas bay hotel!!!!!

Food will make you choke and make u want to be sick!!!

Just stayed at this hotel and absolutely loved it. Its clean, pleasant and right in the middle of the village. The staff are a good laugh and very polite, Aris, Stefanos, Nikos and Nikos were great, we even went out drinking with them after hours and found our Greek dialect hilarious... Cant recomend this hotel and the perfect village of Ag. Stefanos enough, its a perfect Greek experience for those who havent been to this amazing country

Room Tip: We had a balcony overlooking the main street which is pretty quiet at night

We stayed at the Thomas Bay on the recommendation of a family member who has stayed several times and we weren't disappointed. It may only be a 3 star hotel with clean and basic rooms but it is definately above average with helpful, friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay (Heather and Irene on main reception are particularly welcoming). The food was fine, nothing was too much of a problem catering for a vegetarian (me!) and the restaurant staff were very cheerful. The whole place had a relaxed feel about it and whilst the resort itself is small and quiet, it was exactly what we needed before winter begins (not sure it really ended mind you). We are seriously considering visiting again next year with more family members. Definately a little gem!
