We travelled to the Little Prince Apartments in July after booking a last minute bargain. It was very reasonably priced and we didn't know too much what to expect, just thought as 3*+ it would be good, and it was!
The apartments are really spacious and much more modern than things we have seen before as only recently built. There is a nice bathroom, good kitchen area with all the things you will need, grill, utensils, tea towels, cutlery, pans etc, an indoor dining area, dressing area and a huge lovely balcony with views out to sea. Some apartments overlook the pool but the front apartments are really great, I think ours was 108 and had a massive balcony. Everything was kept really clean and we were happy and comfortable there. There was also a little library area which we used a few times. Pool was nice, not huge but big enough as the apartments don't have a huge occupancy either. There was also a nice bar area that opened as well.
The Apartments are really well located in the main part of the small resort San Stefanos, the beach is about a 3 minute walk down the road and is absolutely lovely. Huge stretches of sand and beautiful, crystal clear water. There are some nice walks and we walked to Arillas over the headland which had stunning views and a gorgeous beach. Would recommend.
The people in San Stefanos are lovely and welcoming and I think this is why people keep going back. We are a young couple and thought that most entertainment in the bars etc was aimed towards more middle aged people, i.e. 60's music, but this is not a bad thing and is makes it a really nice resort for couples or families. The Athens Bar was a great place to visit for cocktails or live music.
The restaurants are lovely, we did not have a bad meal and our favourites were The Little Prince, The Two Stars and The Zorbas. We had delicious food and excellent service and everything was still so reasonably priced. You can get a three course meal set menu for 8 euros and all the restaurants do different set meals each night or for 6 euros a set meal with a drink.
We also did some diving out in Corfu, which I would highly recommend. We contacted Bev and Ray, really friendly people, at their dive shop in San Stefanos and they organised it with Rays company Dive Easy in Acharavi. We had a great day, with safe and helpful guides and the dives were shallow (12m) but lovely reefs off the coast of Albania, with good marine life.
San Stefanos is a beautiful, small and friendly resort with a great beach and you would not be disappointed to go there. The Little Prince is a great base for staying there and the owners were also lovely and helpful. In the beginning of July we did not purchase the air con and didn't really need it as slept with balcony slightly open and didn't find the mosquitos bad either but had plug ins and used lots of spray!! For lovely, clean and spacious apartments with everything you need, great clean pool and bar area and great restaurant then stay at the Little Prince.
