“Messonghi Beach Hotel Corfu - Nice, quality/price – fair”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

To arrive in Corfu with private car, will have to go through Greece's highways, one of which is A2, Thessaloniki - Igoumenitsa, which is beautifully built, with viaducts and tunnels, with beautiful scenery in the mountainous area that crosses. You must pay the following fees for highway: 2.40 E - approx. 14 km from Thessaloniki and one 2 E in 3 points to Igoumenitsa = 8.40 E (x 2, if you have to go back). Speed limits throughout its range to 130 km/h in some areas up to 60 km/h, 80km/h in tunnels. Highway is equipped with various sensors to detect movement of exceeding the speed limit, at entrances/exits of the tunnels, and inside tunnels (installed cameras and sensors installed in the road), you will find installed from place to place and the classic "boxes" with radar devices and sensors istalatate fixed point and sensors serving these boxes installed in the roadway;
The ferries from Igoumenitsa to Corfu Town (Kerkyra Town), Lefkimmi and Paxos ; you can view prices for travel on http://www.corfu-kerkyra.eu/html/english/timetable.htm
You have to pay for children : 4 E / child (5-14 years), and those under 5 years is not paid.
After I reached Lefkimmi, I had to go approx. 20 km to the Messonghi Beach Hotel. Landscape island is very rustic, disorder in which the people live for many years makes itself felt on this island, and there you will find unkempt houses, all with stunning contrast to the human eye-anywhere look, almost perfect combination between mountain and sea "smell salty" sea dominate the whole island, huge palm trees, cacti beautiful raised that spring from place to place, olive with their bizarre shapes, blue water bays, sometimes turcuoaz, cliffs surrounding the bays are all spectacular views are all things that nature has placed on this piece of land. But above all beauties are in total contrast to the locals who seem indifferent to the beauty that God gave them an inheritance, they do not care homes, gardens and roads.
Complex belonging to the Ioanian Hotels Group is huge, approx. 17 hectares which includes almost two hotels, Club Marmara Hotel and Messonghi Beach Hotel, both belonging to the same hotel group, noted above. The hotel complex comprises several buildings, all bearing different names (Main (main body of the hotel), Riverside (where I stayed and I), Twins (composed of two buildings - located very close to the beach), Poseidon). Tourists stay in the complex can benefit from the services of both hotels and here I refer to: swimming pools, bars, restaurants and entertainment programs for day/evening. If you need, you can request a deposit box at reception (deposit boxes located opposite the reception), you will be entitled to use it that free.
If you arrive early at the hotel, to the time set in the voucher,is not a problem. At the hotel will put plastic bracelets on hand so you can get everything you can offer the hotel. You can request to store luggage until 14.00, when you receive your hotel room, in a special room at the reception. My family throughout the holidays, all inclusive services received. Next i try to be as detailed as the hotel and can easily provide critical about certain aspects found:

1. Restaurants:
• Main restaurants: There are 2 restaurants functional, one for each hotel in the conditions for serving the meal was very good. Careful with the greek's treated the tourists stay here is manifested by the good services that we receive (tablecloths were changed immediately after tourists ended, cutlery clean, neatly arranged tables). Upon completion of such food restaurant employees took the plate from the table, asking politely if you allow this, these people are always cheerful and communicative with tourists. At the 2 restaurants serving open buffet style is made for all three periods of the day when you could eat:
• Breakfast (between 07.00 - 09.30): You could find plenty of two types of sausage, tomatoes, cucumbers, 2 types of yogurt (with or without spices), their famous feta cheese, croissants (plain and with various fillings), butter and margarine, different types of jams, raisins, dates , orange slices, a variety of types of breakfast cereals, different preparations fried pastries (savory/sweet) and "british style" (beans, fried sausages, baked ham, scrambled eggs with mushrooms). In the dining room there is a toaster that you could cook one slice of bread. Could also serve coffee (nescafe coffee and natural coffee), milk (hot and cold), juice (of course "chemicals" to brew: orange (similar to the natural), apple and grapefruit) and water (cold) a dispenser placed in a corner. Optimal time in which you found the windows crowded with food was until 08.30 am;
• Lunch (between 12.30 - 14.30): Lunch was on some days, a traditional Greek feast, various preparations of seafood: clams cooked in red sauce with vegetables and squid with vegetables in white sauce - very tasty. You could find french fries (with kecup or mustard - especially the British prefer), different types of steaks (chicken, mutton, fish fillets (fried or cooked in the oven), sometimes fried anchovies, pork, different types of vegetable stews; cold dishes, sometimes you could find pizza, 2-3 types of pasta cooked italian style (spaghetti with red sauce, favored especially by children) - in the same category, you could find carbonarra farfale or rigatoni with sauce, pickles (cucumber, carrot, cauliflower - chopped - very tasty), different types of salads (lettuce, carrot, celery, cucumber) with 2-3 types of sauce dressing.
Drink: white wine - taste very good, red wine - taste very good (products served very cold - the carafe), beer, juice: same dispenser with "chemicals" - specified above or Pepsi / Fanta / Seven Up - served All the dispenser, soda and plain water (cold).
Sweets: i can say without exaggeration, that the greek style was just ok, you could find: watermelon and melon, peach, banana, apricot and cakes sometimes specific greek (very sweet, approx. 3-4 types) jelly with fruit and not least - ice cream (about 2-3 types) which is always at the discretion of tourists;
• Dinner (between 19.00 - 21.30): At dinner can serve a wide range of foods: foods cold, a lot of types of vegetable stews, salads, various meats (roasted, baked), I would like to specify that one evening we had meat pigeon sauce - very tasty. Greek dinner available to tourists and 1-2 types of soups. Sweets, and lunch were varied (the often changing types of cakes for lunch, dinner), fruit and ice cream. Types of drinks served at dinner were served at the lunch;

2. Pizza restaurant on the beach: This restaurant is not included in the "All inclusive" by the hotel complex, if you wanted to serve something, you had to pay. Here you could eat a large number of types of pizza - tasty and nicely fried. Longer could serve different types of drinks, cocktails (with or without alcohol), - all these preparations to additional payment. In the hotel complex there is a restaurant, one of the bars near the beach, now dismantled, located a few tables and chairs arranged in the shade for those who wanted to drink taken at the beach bar, restaurant abut that. I want to say that during staying at Messonghi Beach Hotel, the greeks have offered quality service at the restaurant. Regardless of the crowd of tourists and when you went to serve the meal, I can say that they always found food.

3. Buffet - "Morning Tea & Snacks": Between 10.30 and 12.00 at the main bar of the hotel complex served sandwiches and cakes without cream diferitre, they were all inclusive program;

4. Buffet - "Afternoon Tea & Snacks": Between 10.30 and 12.00 at the main bar of the hotel complex served coffee, tea and cakes without cream, all were in the program All inclusive;

5. Bars: the hotel complex there are 6 bars, as follows:
B1. The main bar of the main body of the hotel complex (opened between: 10.00 - 01.00): It has two types of service:
• All inclusive (Opening hours: 10.00 - 23.00): This program could serve unlimited amount of beer, wine (white and red - the carafe), brandy, ouzo (Greek traditional drink), soda, different combinations of beverages specified above (the topic of mint, Curacao and strawberries), water and juices from the dispenser (Pepsi / Fanta / Seven Up), orange juice, tea (4-5 types), and ice cream (5-6 types randomly - as long as the bar was open). The only problem was that your beer was served in plastic cups of 200 ml (containers too small, in my opinion ... could be the standard 400 ml, which are found everywhere in Europe);
• In addition to program all inclusive (Opening hours: 10.00 - 01.00): It would serve different types of alcoholic beverages, canned beer, liqueurs (all drinks served here are paid by tourists, who were benefiting from Ultra all inclusive - could serve without additional pay);
B2. Pool bar from the north - Hotel complex located in western (10.00 - 18.00): Drinks and products here could serve as the "All inclusive" described above;
B3. Bar near the hotel reception (open between the hours: 18.00 - 01.00): This program was not included in All inclusive, all served here had to pay, except those who had Ultra all inclusive;
B4. Beach Bar, located in the north of the hotel complex (opened between: 10.00 - 18.00): Drinks and products here could serve as the "All inclusive" than orange juice and ice cream, not served here;
B5. The bar on the beach, located in the middle of the beach owned by the hotel complex:
•Opening hours: 08.30 - 20.00 - There are different types of beverages outside the hours of all-inclusive program had to pay. Here you could also serve other drinks (martinis, whiskey, etc.) whenever you wanted - but you had to pay for them;
•Opening hours: 10.00 - 17.30 - All inclusive program - Drinks and products here could serve as the "All inclusive" than orange juice and ice cream is not served here;
B6. Bar located on the top floor terrace of the hotel's main building (opening hours: 18.00 - 23.00): This bar was was not all inclusive program and only those who benefited from Ultra all inclusive drinks were served without pay;
On the ground floor wing there a Riverside bar, now disused, called Morning Bar - assume that the moments of glory of this resort, there can be served hot drinks and cakes;

6. Chamber of Hotels: building where we stayed is called "Riverside", located east of the hotel complex on the ground floor facing the sea, I received a small terrace overlooking the pool in front wing, absolutely gorgeous. In warm moments of the day,children could enjoy the pool, then they could sit in the shade on the mini tearasa room or even in the room. The room had approx. 25 square meters have marble on the floor, 2 beds cemented (90/180 cm) and two bunk beds (90/180 cm), where the children slept. Furniture was a little old, but was well maintained, bed linens changed from 2 to 3 days, towels (large and small) every day. The linens and towels were impeccably white, clean room and bath maintenance is done every day, for example, that morning, in my haste to get a meal or the beach, i can not arrange my bed at 14.00 when i came in the room, i found everything arranged perfectly. In the room, contrary to most tourist offer accommodations in greece, had air conditioning, not to pay extra for this service. The only problem was mosquitoes (i recommend you appliance equipped with anti mosquito). Bath (about 3.5 meters square), not very modern, but very clean, hair dryer in our room did not work, but this is not affected us. The rest of the building, as in that of other buildings within the hotel complex, there were large balconies, the balconies were chairs and tables for relaxing tourists;
7. Beach: Quite large (approx. 25 m wide / 350 m), sand and round stones from the river, into the water was very smooth, sometimes sandy bottom, rocks elsewhere (rather uncomfortable) , water, deep blue, was very clear and above all I can say it was hot:
• Deck chairs on the beach: Those who were free, were those who benefited from Ultra all inclusive, the other tourists were paying 3 E/ day/deckchair + parasol included. Did not want to sit on a deckchair, there was no problem, you could sit on a beach towel, directly on the sand, no one had anything against (many tourists, proceeded in this way);
• Entertainment at sea: Parasailing, banana, kayaking, diving and others - had to pay;
• Boat trips: The organized day trips by sea - had to pay (20 E/adult, 5 E/child - out of the hotel dock at 09.00, walk through the surroundings of the island (they visited some caves and coves only accessible the sea), water and cold food - included in price), returning at 17.00;
• Sports on the beach: 2 sites developed for beach volleyball (at the ends of the beach) - free;
• Deficiencies found: Surface clean beaches, cigarette butts in the sand, a few showers did not work. One of the hotel employees who knew only Greek, and which served to the beach bar, located in the north of the hotel complex, was a constant daring, the employee sometimes affect mood tourists asking the services;
8. Spa Center: This center receive a lot of specific services for a fee; Therapy fish - two tanks were small fry that makes you feel better (do not worry, i looked myself in the tanks, not piranha from Amazon) - this service is paid;
9. Miniclub:
• Entertainment team: I suppose that was well prepared, i have not participated in programs carried out there, but after happiness on the faces of french children present in large numbers there (all the programs there were taken only in french) means that the animators were very well prepared. If you had a very good financial situation, could require the services of a hostess to take care of your child only (it went to the beach, pool);
• Deficiencies found: The differences were made between children miniclub come through certain travel agencies, in the sense that animators are occupied by children who come through agencies may pay them their commission. Other children whose parents have not made reservations through the travel agency "approved" the miniclub animators were not accepted by them, totally unprofessional (with children who were guilty?...they had no reservation at this hotel?);

10. Pools: The resort hotel has five pools:
• The large swimming pool (depth gradually: from 1.30m to 1.90m) + small pool for children (depth: 0.5m) located in the eastern part of the hotel complex, in front of Riverside;
• The large swimming pool (depth gradually: from 1.60m to 2.20m) and slides which were water + small pool for children (depth: 0.5m), located in the middle of the hotel complex, it was salt water;
• Small pool for children (depth: 0.5m), located in the north of the hotel complex, near Miniclub with type octopus water slide, two mushrooms with water and dolphins (artesian) water jet;
• The large swimming pool - was round (depth: 1.60m), located in the western part of the hotel complex;
• The large swimming pool (depth gradually: from 1.60m to 2.20m) + children's pool (depth: 0.5m), located in the western part of the hotel complex, near the amphitheater;
All the pools have showers, which can be used by tourists and bars close, to serve various drinks, after the effort to swim. Around the pool are loungers, small tables and umbrellas for the sun, tourists can enjoy them for free;
• There are 2 water slides - one tube and one speed, large pool located in the center of the hotel complex. These water slides you do not have access only if you pay 5 E/day/person. (the hotel reception you will receive a plastic bracelet, a certain color). Was disturbing to learn that only those who came through an agency, benefiting from preferential tariff - 10 E/period/person (hotel managers disrespect to the rest of the tourists is obvious);
• Gymnastics in water - is held at certain times, the large pool in the center of the hotel complex, with professional coaching;
• Pool games - Polo in the large pool with water slides and mini polo pool for children in Western hotel complex;
• Park playground: Some swings, 2 slides and much else - their maintenance was not ok, they are outdated, the place was not protected from the sun. At noon, the sun was very intense, children could not play there - this is a managerial failure;

11. Evening entertainment:
• Evening with mini train rides: You were at 19.00. Mini train gave a few laps of the hotel complex;
• Shows in the amphitheater: A very poor animation team ready. Every evening the sounds of music was old, little unappreciated by the public who managed to gather in the amphitheater. In one evening was a show with traditional greek dances, dancers neatly dressed, perfect choreography was something special;
• Shows for children: After dinner, the scene of the main bar, a member of the hotel animation team was dressed in rooster and one was dressed in lion entertain children through dance. Unfortunately, the dynamics were not changing repertoire from day to day was like a play rather badly played, but perfectly repeated, importantly, the children enjoyed, they still do not see things with a critical eye as an adult;
• Shows for adults: Pretty weak as choreography, disorderly at times, felt that the animation team shooting time every night, like a football match. Poorly trained, even vulgar at times in their events stage, they tried to entertain an audience every night;
• Place of amusement for children: It is near the main body of the hotel complex and offers tourists a fee, billiards, slot machines for children, electronic games, electric cars for children walking in the alleys of the complex (at 19.00);
It is worth mentioning that all the hotel animation team consists only of young french people, all actions of this team were held only in French, rarely can hear English, or German;
12. Hotel Facilities:
• Internet: Internet access points throughout the hotel complex (cost: 2E/40min; 4E/2h), and a place (internet corner) large bar near the main body of the hotel complex, where a fee, you can access the Internet from a desktop (details at the reception);
• Conference room: It is downstairs in the main building;
• Shops in the hotel complex: One of souvenirs, beach clothes and accessories, is the main ground floor of the hotel conference room near other in the main building, and some (with diving equipment and toys for children) were near the pool with water slides. Prices at these stores are large, unprofitable for many of us (near the hotel complex, the same products you can buy at approx. half price);
• Sports in the complex: 3 tennis courts, a basketball court and a football. Deficiency found: None of playgrounds have no lighting at night, if you want to play on, do you risk sunburn ... intense heat will broke up he began serving the first set of tennis. I don’t have information if you have to pay to play on them;

13. Nationality of tourists in the hotel complex: 60% - France/Belgium; 10% - Poland/Czech Republic/Slovakia/Macedonia/Serbia/Slovenia, 10% - Germany,; 5% - United Kingdom; 5% - Romania; 5% - Russia; 5% - other countries;

14. The hotel surroundings: There are at least four medium-size shopping centers where you can buy souvenirs, Greek specific drinks, clothes, utensils and more diving. These are static rather than lower prices in stores inside the hotel complex;

15. Visits the island of Corfu: SIDARI - beaches, beautiful landscapes, Canal D'Amour - provides a memorable image is spectacular water erosion can do while high on rock formations; KAVOS - Beautiful landscapes, beach ok, small restaurants the smell emanating from the street grid, many english, more crowded, more ATVs; AGIOS GEORGIOS - Many nudist place in the sun on the rocks, many english ... sandy beaches in this area are rare; ACHILION PALACE - Located on a mountain peak overlooking the continent is worth to visit if you're a big fan of anonymous art. Does not deserve to give 7 E/pers. and you lose time visiting the palace; CORFU TOWN - a nice and relatively clean city. You can visit the two forts (beautiful on the outside, but empty inside) and "Old City" - absolutely gorgeous, small shops selling souvenirs and other traditional products, small cafes and restaurants with prices ok, that gives you a small part of greek cuisine. Worth sacrificing your 2-3 hours during your vacation and you walk through this place;

16. Conclusions:
Messonghi Beach Hotel Corfu hotel situated between mountains, coastline, has much to offer tourists who stay here, we must recognize that in Greece is one of the few hotels that offers services in the style offered in most resorts in Turkey. Most employees of this hotel are hospitable with the tourists, but the cleanliness of the compex’s alley with complex behavior is not it nice that employees have. In many places grass is unkempt, the children's pool in place of the now grass land empty (sometimes mud), this indicates that no one from the last rain soaked lawn, flowers, so many in Greece, there are very few in the gardens of the hotel complex, unkempt trees, palm trees, some nearly dry, some untidy in some places the alleys of the hotel gardens are without curbs and cracked concrete, the beach is very poorly maintained. The odd bars that serve only under all inclusive from 10.00 upsets tourists, they are quick to close at 17.30 - 18.00, you stay as a tourist under a single all inclusive bar (main bar). There is no coffee dispenser to serve tourists before 10.00, installed at the main bar or anywhere in the hotel complex. Loungers at the pools were too few, they failed to meet the needs of many tourists who want to relax in the sun. Rather than add to the loungers at the pool, the staff, the hotel has purchased chairs for the beach, while the old ones were not fully employed (daily average occupancy rate is approx. 60%).
Almost all of the above would be disturbing for a tourist who has purchased a stay at this hotel, and wants the atmosphere created by the hotel staff, and to create relaxation.
The price paid by us for this holiday is correct, the price/quality of services is very good for a 3-star resort, my honest opinion is that this complex offers 4-star hotel, in addition to small flaws found there, quiet atmosphere of the hotel, sandy beach, pools that were extremely clean, high quality of most preparations of restaurant, employees always smile, make you relax happy to leave this resort, which still provides much more than you get in most hotels in Corfu island, perhaps in Greece. My family recommend this resort. The period that we stayed: 01 ÷ 10/07/2012.

Room Tip: I prefer building Riverside - is withdrawn, it is quiet. Twins building is close to the beach, large...

Reviewed 10 July 2012

If location was the be-all and end-all for a hotel review I would recommend this one without a moment’s hesitation. However, this hotel pretends to give the residents an all-inclusive option but does not. I counted a main bar, piano bar, beach bar and pool bar – the only two ever open were the main and beach bar. I have never stayed in a hotel that does not have a pool bar open until at least 6 o’clock in the evening.

All thought the literature states the hotel bars are all-inclusive until 23.00pm the beach bar starts charging from 6.00pm. So if you are looking for a quite area to get away from the repetitive kids club at the main bar each evening you either have to go out of the hotel or pay at the beach bar.
The drinks are served in SMALL plastic cups in a perverse way I believe the hotel thinks will stop people drinking so much – in a way it works because you get so fed up with the queues at the one “free” bar you end up heading into town to buy your drinks.

The bar staff all need a lesson in BASIC customer service – in fact the whole of the hotel staff need a lesson in customer service as they appear to thrive on giving the worst possible service they can. There must be a monthly staff prize for the best idea to P*ss off residents – the winner by far is the idiot that thought using SMALL plastic cups to serve, beer, coffee, tea, juice – in fact any beverage will guarantee that people will not return to this joke of a hotel.

Whatever you do - do not get a mixer in your drink as you will not taste your vodka, rum etc, the spirits are so watered down that you would need to drink several bottles to get tipsy!!
The entertainment left a lot to be desired and was in some cases totally inappropriate for the children watching due to the many sexual connotations used throughout.

The food is bad; we only ate in the restaurant on two occasions (these were early on in our stay) as each time we went to check what was on offer it was like a cattle market ( this is not a place for queuing as English people are few and far between) with little or nothing that appealed. – The only food we had when we did eat was chip butties – but try getting some butter to go on the bread.

All in all I would have to say that the only people that would return to this hotel after their first experience of it would be the insane. The hotel should stop pretending to be an all-inclusive and return to a room only offer. Sack 60% of its staff from barmen to chefs (so called) and send the remaining 20% on customer service training, then and only then would consider returning to this place, but not before and that would be because of its location. Oh, the maids were the 20% of staff that do know how to treat their customers.

To finish on a positive note – the best service and food by far in the hotel complex is the pizza restaurant, the food is good and the service what you would expect. Pity this has nothing to do with the hotel apart from being within the grounds.

Room Tip: Stay Away and You Will Get A Good Room

We have just spent 10 days at the messonghi beach hotel. The resort itself was fine for the money we paid but were surprised to find that all the all inclusive drinks were served in plastic cups, this even included tea, coffee and beer. We just could not understand why they would serve beer in plastic cups. We were also among the very few british people in the hotel, the majority appeared to be eastern european, who all seemed to let their children run riot in the restaurants at meal times. Also the restaurant whilst the food was good and varied, was much too crowded, you sometimes had to queue down the stairs from the restaurant. Even though we booked a superior room we were initially allocated a standard room, with no air con, fridge or t.v.However they rectified this after a day but would not have done if we had not complained. All in all however this holiday is not bad value for the money you pay.

Room Tip: make sure you book a superior room and that you are allocated one on arrival.

Exquisite views of greece mainland mountains.

Great buffet with loads of choices. Fish was lovely.

My husband and I returned from a 2 week stay at the Messonghi Beach Hotel in Corfu on 2nd June 2012 and had an amazing time. We did not originally book this hotel but due to our hotel not opening in 2012 we were contacted 1 week before travelling by our travel company and advised of the change. We read the reviews and were happy with the change.
Check in:
Upon arrival we were checked in and all the staff at reception were very helpful, polite and well trained.
Our Room:
We were in room 318 in the main building above reception. The room was extremely basic and we asked at reception why there was no fridge, air con or TV and were advised that even though we had paid for a sea view room it was a standard room and it would be €15 extra per night for a superior sea view room. We decided not to bother moving - but if you haven't booked yet it maybe something to consider. Also, our room was directly above the entertainment area in the evening - so if your early to bed it may worth paying extra to stay in the superior room. However, the show's always ended at 11pm so didn't bother us at all. The bathroom was clean - but extremely small. Water pressure was fine but the shower was tiny. The main problem was the beds- We had a double bed but it was the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The rooms were cleaned and fresh towels given everyday.
The staff:
Couldn't praise the hotel, restaurant and entertainment staff more. All the staff spoke English and had a smile on their face. Everyone was very friendly and the entertainment staff very good - There was loads of activities to do though out the day but they did not pester you at all.
Facilities:
4 pools,Water slides (extra €3 per day or €10 for the week) Playground for the kids, mini club, volleyball, tennis courts, games room with 8 pool tables and video games. The beach was lovely if you wanted a bit of peace and the sea was crystal clear. Sunbeds on the beach are €3 per day. There is also an excellent Italian restaurant on site that is brilliant value for money.
Restaurant:
The food in the hotel was brilliant - There was always loads of choice at all meal times and of a very good quality. There was always traditional Greek cuisine at lunchtime and dinner time and a very good selection of salad, pasta, fish, meat dishes and bread.All the food was fresh and really tasty. The white wine is also very good. Drinks on the all inclusive were Vodka, Ouzo, brandy, white & red wine, beer, pepsi, sprite, fanta orange and lemon, water, orange juice, tea and coffee. There was also snacks in the main bar between 10.30 - 12 and 3 - 5. If you are going on a trip you can also order a pack lunch at reception before 2 the day before which was a lovely touch.
The area:
If you leave the hotel and walk along the beach towards Moratika (left) There are loads of beach bars and restaurants to choose from. We stopped and had a beer or two in a couple - watching the world go by - lovely. If you leave the hotel from the beach and walk right into Messonghi you will come to the river - There is a man in a boat that will take you over the river for €1 (kids free). On the other side there are yet more Restaurants and a few bars - Just perfect! If you leave the hotel though the main entrance there are many super markets, shops, bars and restaurants. We can highly recommend the Bella Vista Restaurant - Set up in the olive groves with panoramic views of the area. Very romantic, this family run Taverna offers 1 of the best views of Moraitika / Messonghi and Main land Greece. The service is second to none and the food is excellent. Great Value for money. Also try Zaks family Taverna. Set on the main road of Messonghi, the restaurant is a beautiful setting with Flowers and grape vines covering the taverna inside and out. The food was amazing and again romantic and brilliant service.
Overview:
We had a fantastic holiday at the Messonghi Beach. There is a lovely mix of nationalities staying at the hotel and I can not fault the staff, management, facilities or food. Go and enjoy a slice of heaven in Corfu. Thanks to everyone at the Messonghi Beach hotel.
Tips:
Take a trip to Corfu town. The bus comes into the hotel everyday at 10am but you can also catch it from the top of the road (Green bus line) Takes about 45min's and costs €2.20 each way. Great day out with plenty to see, do and buy!
Watersports and the Hotel - Great value for money and brilliant fun!

I was tagged like a duck,with a badge on arrival. "look I'm the cheap customer, give me your bad wine, nescafe etc".Two beds pushed together, 8inch wooden gap.silicone repairs all over, very dated.
The cantine food is despicable, bland, tastless.
10 tables on the terrace for 1600 guests????
You've got to get up early not to miss breakfast!
But the cleaners will see to that around 7am.
Grumpy rude waiters, and this is only the start of the season.
Noise around the pools ALL day long trying to make you dance when you want a rest and read a book,you can't escape even on the beach.
To have a reasonably nice time, rent a quad or scooter (10€/day)and make it fast to the west coastal sandy beaches, try the greec salads or a boat trip with Mike to the blue lagoon (only when sunny though).

Room Tip: pay extra for a luxury double !!!!!

Me and my partner are both in our 30s! We were not booked to go there but our other hotel had closed down. We were very sceptical after reading reviews on here!! On arriving we were checked in really quick and given a room in main hotel. The room had a spectacular sea view and was basic but nice and very lean. Shower pressure was fantastic although floor did get soaked! Maids came every day and changed linen a nd towels as we needed them! Food was your average all inclusive buffet style. There was masses of choice so i will defy anyone who says couldnt find something to eat! We also bought pre payment cards for onsite italians which were fantastic value and the pizza was to die for! You gotta say hi to antonio and george!! We spent most days on beach which you have to pay 3 euro for loungers but that was personal choice as there are plenty of pools with free loungers! The slides which are extra 3 euro a day charge are also well worth it if like me you big kid! The staff througout the whole resort were outstanding. Helpful and friendly to a fault. All spoke some english and many other languages. This resort is not just aimed at the british and there was a very varied clientele. Entertainment everynight, was sometimes a little bit the same the team did well in many languages and also got people involved in lots through the day too. All in all we found messonghi beach a fab holiday and great value for money. We would degfinately return. So keep an open mind and treat people the way you wanna be treat and will not have a problem here at all :-)

Room Tip: quieter bigger rooms in smaller building although main hotel more than adequate on sea view side!!
