“Ten Out of Ten, value for money”
Reviewed 20 May 2011

My husband and I have just got back from an 11 nights stay at Aquis sand beach; we found this all inclusive resort clean, great value for money and friendly, every member of the staff were very good at their job, and nothing seemed to much trouble for them, I have never written a review before although I always read them, but I am quite shocked that some people expect 5 star treatment for what is a 3-4 star holiday (please remember what you paid and thank god for the Aquis) .
Clean rooms check, plenty of nice food check, well staffed check, 3 bars check, on the beach check, 3 pools check, plenty of sun beds check, rooms cleaned every day check, I could go on but I don’t want to bore you because I’ve got a life and its too short to moan.
Some people should stay at home or pay through the nose to be waited on hand and foot. From room 1103 a very happy suntanned 54 year old who enjoyed a great holiday and hopefully will return to this hotel again.

Like others, I had been worried beforehand by the negative reviews. However, our first impressions (at midnight) were good and they continued that way throughout our week's stay. The staff were at all times helpful and friendly - usually saying hello when they saw you in the grounds. The waiting staff in the restaurant worked very hard and were always on hand to clear tables, get drinks etc. The resort isn't yet full I wouldguess, but the speed with which they cleared tables should mean that even when full a table can be found. We ate every meal on the outside terrace which was very nice. There was a wide range of food at each meal, all of it good - although some food was a bit lukewarm. The room was spotless and cleaned each day. A fridge was provided. Both pools were open, uncrowded and clean. Drinks were readily available from the poolside bars. There was soem evening entertainment, and clubs for children. I am glad we did decide to come here despite the poor reviews and recommend it to others.

My friend and i have just been to this hotel and what an experience. The staff were fantastic and helpful in every way and made our stay a very pleasurable experience,particulary Maria at the reception desk. She was amazing. The room had a sea view and the quality of the room cleaning was supberb. The quality of sleep with the waves of the sea at night was devine. I Thought the food was excellent and there was no sighn of any waiter trying to take your plates away before you had finished. All inclusive is recommended as we didnt spend a penny more and for value for money we would definetly go there again for a relaxing beach front holiday. Entertainment was scarse but i think as you get to the end of May there would be better shows and live entertainment as the season progresses. A Gorgeous little village is only 5 minutes walk away with lovely little cocktail bars overlooking the ocean and good food also. I couldnt fault this hotel and will recommend it to anyone. Thanks Maria for a great holiday.xx

Just had another wonderful week (May 2011) at Aquis Sandy Beach Resort in Corfu. We enjoyed ourselves so much last year that we decided to go back again this year, and were not disappointed - so much so that we plan to go back in 2012. This is a good value for money holiday. The accommodation was absolutely spotless and spacious. The choice of food was excellent, good quality and so extensive that we couldn’t get to try everything. The pools were clean and warm enough to enjoy a pleasant swim – the children were hardly out of the water, and with the sea so close, it was great to go to the beach too. Two things made the holiday particularly good for us – the friendly staff who could not do enough for you and the fact that the resort is so safe for children. Good Kid’s Club. The only thing that could make it better is more evening entertainment. It was early in the season, though, and the entertainment was just really starting as we left. Missed a pool party the night we left. Can’t wait for next year!

Despite us been in the resort on it's first week of opening for the season, we had a really relaxing and enjoyable time. Everybody went out of their way to fix any small problems.
The second pool was late in opening but when it did it was immaculate. We enjoyed the choice of food and the quality was quite acceptable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely consider returning.

My partner, 7 month old daughter and I stayed at the Aquis Sandy Beach from 6th May to 13th May. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish. The room was cleaned every day, with fresh towels and toilet paper. The staff, from the porters to the restaurant staff, and particularly the bar staff, are very polite and friendly. The receptionists are very helpful, and must be fluent in nearly every language. I could not fault the food at all. If you wanted to, you could eat and drink all week long to your hearts content. We found most of the meat dishes very tasty, and were never stuck for things to eat. I tipped the bar staff every so often, and they were very appreciative indeed. The resort felt a little remote, but this may be because St George was only just starting to open up for the season. The pools were a bit cold, but aren't they usually, and it was only very early in the season. Take Euros and Sterling with you, as you can only get currency at reception if you exchange cash.........you cannot use you bank card, as I tried to. I would give the whole experience an 8.5-9 out of ten. Very enjoyable........to all those at Aquis Sandy Beach..........well done! 8-)
Kalimera!
