For a family with children looking for a quiet beach holiday this resort ticked all our boxes. The complex itself is perfectly located a short walk from the beach with excellent rooms and facilities. Well kept, safe and clean with picturesque gardens and a large swimming pool.
The Thomson reps (and there are a lot of them here) are fantastic with activities and entertainment on tap all day & evening. The kids were never bored and loved all the entertainment. If the little darlings drive you nuts, clubs and drop in clubs are also on hand to keep the kids busy while you chill by the pool.
The staff at the hotel are so hospitable and they all helped to make our holiday a perfect one. The reception is well run and in particular the pool bar staff are so warm and friendly, they make you feel like old friends come to visit again.
No hi-rise on this seafront! Set against a backdrop of wonderful scenery including mountains and olive groves. The sandy beach is such a beautiful place to relax with shallow, warm, crystal clear water and not too crowded at all. It has an abundance of water sport activities (if you want to get more physical) or you can bask in the glorious sunshine that seems to be a permanent feature of this island, this beach is perfect.
Nikos sea sports directly in front of the palm beach offers all kinds of fun activities and in my experience of water Nikos (the proprietor) takes very seriously the safety of his clients. I have 2 children and for the last 5 years I have been happy to involve them in a lot of the activities. This is so often a concern with youngsters but I am more than satisfied that his experience makes him entirely competent.
The village of St George has no shortage of bars & restaurants offering both English and Greek cuisine and again is so suited to families with it's low key friendly atmosphere. There is also an excellent buffet restaurant on site if you don't fancy the 5 minute walk to town. On the seafront verandas of the restaurants you can enjoy an evening meal whilst watching one of the most glorious sunsets I have ever seen.
We will be back again as we have done before. When something isn't broken, there is no point in fixing it. I know we can enjoy holiday after holiday in this charming corner of Corfu.
Negatives: Don't drink the water, the mineral content is a little high for some (usual for Greece). It's OK to brush your teeth in and Ice, soft drinks & food prep is made with mineral water so salads are OK. Mosquitoes can sometimes be a pest but repellent seems to deal with that.
