The Olympic brochure is relatively accurate. It is a basic block of approx 19 apps. with the majority overlooking the pool area, with 4 rooms to the rear ( of which we had number 7). Upon arrival the room and contents were clean but as usual the contents were of age and crockery etc. did not match.
The pool area contains a reasonable size pool, (shallow end from 0.5m - 1.0m deep, main area then goes to 2.8m deep), painted blue with the usual plastic covering of the overflow/ filtering channel and then tiled (some a little loose). Adequate sunbeds available despite the usual morons leaving towels all day.
The bar area was clean & tidy for snacks & bottled drinks.
To those who are use to Greece basic, these were ok. Have had better and worse.
The apartments are very close to the Stars, on the road into the resort. Both properties have a short access road and, as per Olympic, 6mins walk to the nearest shop and a further 10/15 mins(past other bars shops etc.) to the beach road. The beach road then is approx 0.5miles in either direction. There are plenty of shops, restaurants & bars. Turn left at the beach road is more quieter, with smaller beach. Turn right to a busier area ending at Issos Beach.
This is possibly the best resort in Corfu for adults wishing for a lazy holiday, with good restaurants etc. and the excellent Issos beach. prices are similar to UK - Mythos beer (lge) @ 2.5 euro (£2.30), main meals start at 6.50 euro. Quality of food was very good. We favoured The Balcony but all were good. For a drink ( and the football) The Easy- Busy (opposite beach road cash machine).
Day Trips - the bus to Corfu Town, Boat trip (28 euro) to Paxos or to mainland. Note there is a bus service from Corfu Town to Kavos that stops at the top of the resort access road. This is a 25 min (1 km plus) walk from the George Apps.
The local village (Argirades) is approx 4 km either via the beach road( note steep walk) or main road.
On the whole some minor issues but what excellent value for money.
