Returned with great sadness from a beautiful 4 night stay at the wonderful Aquis Pelekas beach hotel.
My friend and I both found the hotel, surroundings and staff to be of an excellent standard, and we loved every second of our mini holiday in the Corfu Sun.
There was so many good things about this holiday that will remain as fond memories for us, and virtually no negatives to be found, so I will go on to say what I liked about it.
Location....Pelekas beach is only 17 km from the airport so an ideal place to stay if your not on the Island for many days. The beach is large and sandy with sunbeds and parasols, about 5 t
Tavernas line the edge and there are rocky areas. Its good clean beach with a lifeguard presence and remained quite shallow very far into the sea.
The beach and hotel are set into a beautiful green hillside that is unspoilt in its absence of other hotels bars or clubs. Its 'Shirley Valentine' Greek!!!!
The hotel was immaculate in every way, the staff so kind and friendly. There are many facilities and activities provided by the hotels hard working entertainment staff, but there was no pressure to join in if you didn't want to. We loved the pool area with is decked area and stylish sunbeds on which to work on the tan. Hotel provides towels for a small deposit, very useful if travelling light, that can be replaced for clean ones every two days.
The food in the all inclusive restaurant was for us, amazing, we ate like Kings every day and scraped our plates clean it was that good. The variety was good lots of fresh grilled meat, fish and veg,delicious salads all fresh plentiful, healthy and wholesome. The sweet trolley was our undoing as we couldn't resist the choice. I had the most delicious chocolate mouse that I now need to recreate at home.
The staff at the Hotel did make the holiday for us especially the beautiful curly haired receptionist who really looked after us, and her colleague, an older gentleman so jovial and friendly who was there to greet us at the unholy hour of 4 in the morning on Sunday. Ouch!!! We loved them and we already miss you.
We would like to make a special mention to Anna, the lovely tall Ukraine waitress (wears her fair hair in a plait) who always had a smile on her face even when scraping remains off dirty plates. She had such a sweet disposition and kind nature, we love you too and wish all the best in life.
The rating of 75% simply does not do this Hotel justice, you would have to be very fussy to find fault with this place. We loved it all.
