Honestly, the one star rating goes only for the few helpful staff. The hotel was absolutely atrocious. My family and I are all vegetarians, and having booked for half board, it was a bad decision as we had to eat out on most days. Breakfast was the same each morning- boiled eggs, cheese, ham, bread, orange juice. For dinner, you had no choice. Just turned up and had to wait to see what they decided to make for you. When we informed them we are vegetarians they began to make something different for us, however, it was usually just salad, omelettes and watermelon for dessert. The pool was, to say the least, disgusting. Did not swim once at the hotel, but went elsewhere to other pools (Malibu beach). The rooms were so basic, and towels were changed every 3 days. No safe to place any valuables.
I would say the only thing which made up for all of this was the trips we went on- Gaios island, Paxos, Anti-paxos, horse riding, and the tour by bus around the whole island.
Corfu Chandris hotel which is opposite Oscar hotel seemed way,way,wayyy more pleasant. Consider that.
