“Most boring holiday ever.”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

I came to this hotel last June with my boyfriend. The journey up to the hotel was shocking, it put us off as soon as we left the airport; it was long windy roads of scruffy shack type houses, with no one or nowhere to go to be seen anywhere. We were the first off the transfer as its only a 10 minute drive from the airport. The outside of the hotel itself was nice, the reception area is welcoming. We arrived at around 1.30pm and we were checked in immediatley, given our all inclusive bands and headed to the restaurant for quick lunch before it finished. Now, the food...shocking. Every meal we didnt know what any of it was (neither did the staff either i think). Alot of pasta dishes, meat in sauces and soggy potatoes in milk apparently. One night of chips. What seemed to be residents of Corfu appeared one night as well and rammed the place full making it really uncomfortable and a mission to actually get food. In the food room your only allowed to drink wine or beer...no soft drinks. The breakfast food such as cereals, spreads and bread were left out all dat just covered with a sheet. Breakfast had mini hotdog sausages, fatty rashers of bacon, cheese and ham slices and an egg if your lucky. The only pudding was watermelon for every meal. The room was nice, bathroom was tiny with a shower that made the bathroom into a wet room and a curtain that wraps itself round you. In the 7 days we stayed here there wasnt a single form of entertainment. The hotel was dead and the surrounding areas....basically nothing. There is a restaurant around the corner but a bit pricey. We went into Corfu town pretty much everyday just to eat something better and something to do (there is a mcdonalds there). The bus was around 1 euro 10 and took around 15 minutes into the centre. There was a pebble beach 5 mins down the road...about 0.5 mile long...rubbish nothing there, no bar, loungers, nothing. The approach up to it also smelt of sewers. The best part of the holiday was the pool area. Lovely and spacious and clean. The snacks with all inclusive....miniature cheese puff pastry things and ice cream...that is it. No problems with drinks. Plenty of selection and half price cocktails for all inclusive members, 3 euros each. The hotel is next to the runway so can be noisy. Would never want to go back. So boring, dead and inedible food.

I just returned from a short bussiness trip to Corfu.The twin bed room was very clean and quiet.
Above average breakfast.Overall I was very happy with my stay at this hotel.It's 10 minutes drive from the airport or Corfu town.

Rooms are full of humidity and the bathroom is too small for a 3 stars hotel.There was no shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom. The fridge didn't work but the worst of all is the food (waste of money).

This hotel is in a good location, just a short walk up to fabulous views and found a good little restaurant with very helpful staff. A very regular bus service to Corfu Town for 1.30 euros. Taxi from airport costs 15 euros. The hotel was great value for what we paid and staff were very helpful and friendly. After reading the reviews I was quite worried about staying here but it was only for 3 nights until we joined a cruise ship in Corfu town so it wasn't a big deal. There was a small fridge in the room which was handy for bottles of water. Our room overlooked the swimming pool and was very quiet. One complaint - the shower curtain was totally useless and water flooded the entire bathroom and everything in it. I mentioned it to reception and was told they are going to rectify this. Whilst in Corfu I had a fall and cut my leg which unfortunately bled onto the sheets and they were changed the next day without a mention. This hotel is not the Ritz but then neither are the prices and overall I enjoyed my stay here.

Our second visit to this hotel & I have to say it was just as good as the first.
The staff were friendly from the owner to the cleaners, just treat them with respect & they will reciprocate.
Stayed all inc for the price of b&b at home so we don't expect 5* food but you do get choices at every meal & its all perfectly edible.
Its true the hotel is next to the airport runway & the planes are loud, but if that is a surprise to you then you really need to discover the internet & do a little research before you book.
This is a quiet resort where you can escape the hustle & bustle & just relax by the pool or on the beach & unwind.
Many thanks to all the staff, Janis, alexander,kostas,vicky & all for a fab holiday & we will certainly be back

Staff were rude, rooms small, shower curtain wraps itself around you like a wet-suit. The internet connection does not work in the room - you must be on the ground floor, in reception and even then, the connection is very intermittent. The breakfast fare was average at best. This is a worn-out hotel that needs a serious upgrade in services and a change of staff attitudes from the top down.

Room Tip: Better to stay at the Corfu Holiday Palace Hotel up the road - amazing facilities and the food far s...

Stayed here in june 2013,and it was rubbish.there was 5 of us, all adults,and there is just nothing to do of an evening,way way too quiet,and no entertainment at all.The food was disgusting,pasta all day everyday,just in different formats.I found myself hungry most of the time.my wife and i had to share a bedroom with our teenage son,and the rooms are tiny.You are only allowed one drink at a time,and have to take your glass or plastic cup back,before they will give you another drink.There was only one thing what was good about this place,and that was the two receptionists,they were really nice,i found the barstaff,arrogant and rude,as a lot of other people did.to sum up,i would say to anyone who is thinking of going there (just don`t).and anyone who has booked,get a refund.Honestly it IS that bad.

Room Tip: just don`t go
