Crete or Corfu? Best resorts?

Hi, I'm looking to take my boyfriend away on holiday for his birthday and am looking at the Greek Islands and can't decide between Crete or Corfu? I'm looking for a cheap-ish all inclusive holiday and to be by the beach but also not too far away from any nightlife as we often like to go out to clubs/bars. We are both 20 years old. I was wondering what are the best resorts as well because I've obviously heard of Malia and Kavos however I'd like to stay somewhere near these places (a bus ride away) so we have the option of going there but are not surrounded by the loud nightlife all the time. Thanks!

Hi there

I dont know about AI hotels, but you could start by looking at Stalis in Crete, the next resort along to Malia - Stalis still has lots of pubs, themed type bars and restaurants, and a long sandy beach too and is nearly walking distance to Malia is you fancy a bit more of a crazy night :-)

Hi Liz... you could try Sidari on Corfu - You could stay on the outskirts of Sidari, where it is then only a 10 - 15 minute stroll to the main strip is. Sidari is as quiet or lively as you want. Sandy beaches, water sports, plenty of lovely tavernas (if you want that too).

Zafiris Hotel in Sidari is all inclusive (through First Choice) Lovely views, especially at sunset overlooking the Canal D'Amour and the sea.

Whatever you choose, hope you have a lovely time

All inclusive hotels you can also find in Chersonissos. It is actually quiter and you can be in malia in 5 mins.

In Chersonissos there is also nightlife, not like malia and more beautifull beaches. Try Also Anisaras. it is more expensive but nicer hotels, beaches and it is a lot quiter than chersonissos.
