Stayed for a week at the Aquis Agios Gordios Beach Hotel at the end of May and would agree with other comments here on Trip Advisor. Great location (if you don’t mind steps), clean, modern, fantastic food and really hard working staff. Actually I have to say, this more than anything, makes it a great hotel.
We booked a suite, which was very new and spacious. It had panoramic views over Agios Gordios and the beach/sea area. The suites are further up the hill from the main hotel and are therefore probably quieter but also require a bit more energy to get to. You can of course take the hotel golf buggy up the hills if you ask.
Outside of the hotel there is the very small but pleasant village of Agios Gordios. It has one main street with lots of restaurants which seemed to be mostly Greek (sorry, no English pub food here).
The beach of Agios Gordios stretches from the hotel for a kilometre along past the village. It’s busiest with sunbeds/umbrellas around the Aquis Agios Gordios Beach Hotel but then pretty much nothing at the other end of the beach. The waters are very clear along the beach. Yes there is some seaweed but it is the sea.
There is at least one car hire place in Agios Gordios. Which I believe, does scooters as well as cars. The main hospital is in Corfu Town though. We hired a car for a week from Corfu Airport, so no idea of costs but we did see the ambulance at least once in the village.
If you do hire a car I would not recommend a trip to Lake Korission as it’s a bit dry at the moment. Most of the southern part of Corfu isn’t that inspiring and therefore probably not worth the trip. Corfu Town is definitely worth a visit if you like history/architecture/Greek culture.
Just one practical point, driving in Corfu is relatively easy, signage is in Greek most of the time and mostly non-existent off the main roads of Corfu. A satnav is a good idea if you have to be somewhere at a specific time but getting lost has its pleasures as well if you don’t.
All in all, an excellent hotel and a very beautiful island with great people.
