My husband and I honeymooned here in May 2012 and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to review it, but we had an absolutely 100% relaxing, lovely time. The weather was warm enough to sunbathe, get a nice tan, and enjoy the pool (which was very cold, but enjoyable) and we had plenty of chair options (though I admit we moved towels a few times because saving a chair while you're eating breakfast is just lame). The entertainment for the week was Encore, a lovely couple who sang and played guitar, and it was just the right amount of ambience for the stay. Drinks were fantastic, and the food - absolutely AMAZING. Best food I've ever had, I think. The choices was incredible and changed a bit every day, though some of my favourites were there each time! Breakfast had some of the best fresh fruit I've ever had, and everything was so tasty. The staff couldn't do enough for you and everyone was so friendly and smiley. Only had trouble with one staff member at the desk who gave us incorrect information and didn't see to have the time of day for us (wish I could remember her name now) but everyone else was fantastic and we just learned to avoid her after a few days. The beaches are shingle but a lovely place to walk around, and the views are just spectacular. We enjoyed walking up and down the stairs - great exercise and stunning views so we often walked rather than took the funicular, though that ran smoothly while we were there. Only complaint about the room - which had another amazing view from the balcony - were the silverfish (bugs). Could do with a bit of work on the pesticide front to keep those pests away because in such a nice room, it's a shame to be chasing down nasty bugs before going to bed, but the room had everything we needed and the bathroom was huge. Gorgeous setting, nicely sprawled out. We played tennis which was nice, but tried to book some spa treatments and since the spa had recently had a fire, it was shut and therefore treatments were taking place in a room - and were impossible to book. There was one slot left when we arrived so I booked it. That day we took a day boat trip out (with Theo - he's amazing... definitely book one of his trips! We went to the mainland...food was great, fun music, and day was stunning) and the bus ride back to the resort (not the resort's fault) ran really late, driving incredibly slowly and getting stuck on hairpin turns dropping others off at their resorts first. So by the time I got back for my spa treatment, it was about 10 minutes late and they'd cancelled me and couldn't fit me in elsewhere. That was annoying, but I didn't let it ruin the stay.
Overall, would definitely return if we're ever back to Corfu. The Thompson rep wasn't very helpful, but the resort itself was lovely. Definitely recommend!
