The reviews here are all fairly accurate. We stayed for a fortnight, booking through Thomsons, and despite emailing them prior to travelling, we were allocated a bungalow. We got used to the steep hill and had a bigger apartment with amazing views. However some don't have great views and would definitely not be worth the extra walk. Rooms spotless, bathroom small but adequate. AC very good. Pool towels provided. Pool a good size but surrounding area very cramped with no space between beds. Steps to the beach really not that bad. We thought the food was excellent, including the choice and standard. We ate outside every night, the wasps are easily shooed away as long as you don't sit at the edges. Have stayed in AI before and found this lacked the all day provision of food. There were only snacks at the poolside for a couple of hours late afternoon, and the bar here only opened at 10am, closing at 11pm. The drinks may be weaker but not an issue really! The white wine was always warm, but we asked for ice. Queues at the bar not a problem. Staff all friendly with good service.
We went into Corfu town one night and ended up stranded due to a taxi strike. Staff in the town knew about this but apparently not the locals where we stayed, including the rep. We called the Thomsons help line who basically told us we were on our own. We later found out that other guests from the hotel with another company were picked up by the hotel staff! We are waiting to see if Thomsons will refund the 100 Eu it cost for a hotel.
The evening entertainment was awful. There was a wide range of age groups, all couples. The majority are Brits and it is very easy to meet people if you want to. It is a short walk along the beach into the village.
We went on 2 excursions which were very good. However, it takes 1 1/2 hours to get to town when the local bus takes half an hour! First to be picked up and last to be dropped off, the other hotels are off the beaten track and it really wasn't good to spend 3 hours on the coach for a 5hr trip! Corfu is beautiful, with the town well worth a visit.
