We have recently retuned from Century Resort, Acharavi having spent 10 days there Sept 11th to 21st 2013 and booked the week before via lastminute.com, but only after we checked Trip Advisor reports! We arrived in middle of night due to flight delay, but reception were expecting us and we were given complimentary water bottles from fridge before going to our apartment. We were in 308 which had a lovely view of sea and gardens and was up a gentle incline and some short flights of steps to access which did not cause us any exertion but we are quite fit. We did not see any great climbs / hills to any apartments and the surrounding, lush gardens are well maintained. Breakfast was really plentiful and varied - hot and cold options available - fresh bread choices were really delicious, mini croissants some mornings too - eggs / sausage / bacon and many other continental choices available. Toaster was absolutely grand by the way!! Open verandah area very pleasant to sit out and eat in, although a bit wasp city but unlike their British counterparts they don't dive bomb you relentlessly - one flick and they go. Very cute mother and kitten present every morning playing on verandah!!! Pool area very satisfactory though not much breeze and tended to be quiet -pool bar serves great lattes and snacks are fine. All the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times - maid service terrific ( thank you Lina x) with clean sheets / towels almost every day if wished. Apartment was spotlessly clean and very spacious - there were just the two of us and would have slept 5 - some plug sockets were a bit loose at wall ( need attention, as would not be suitable for small children wandering) but worked with adapters ok - fridge fantastic, really cold and great freezer section! We couldn't fault anything and would definitely recommend - its so, so quiet at night, so plenty of rest and relaxation to be had. Mosquitos are an issue so make sure you are prepared with repellant and various soothing potions / creams - they still get you no matter what you use!!! Acharavi is a quiet resort which we found ideal - couples and families well suited. We ate several times at The Pumphouse - great food, excellent value for money. Always busy so you need to get there 7-8pm. Our absolute favourite was SKONDROS Restaurant, right at water's edge at the beach. If you cross the road at The PumpHouse and take the road directly to the left of Budget / Euro Car Hire and follow road all the way down it brings you right to Skondros. The family are delightful and also rent out sunbeds and parasol on the white pebble stretch in front of the restaurant. We spent every day there - sea and views gorgeous and sunbeds so well spaced you felt like you were on a little private bit of beach. (5 euros two sunbeds and brolly) we had morning coffees, lunch every day there and we would go down in evenings too at times - sunsets amazing. Family delightful and food excellent and such good value. We hired a car from Budget - would NOT recommend them, very expensive and car literally stank of stale sweat - the marks of which were ingrained in all the seats, had to spray car in morning before use. We also returned the car with same petrol as we had collected and they tried to charge us more but husband stood his ground - definitely would avoid. Kassiopi is so pretty, also went to Paleokastritsa .......found the view from up above it more enticing than the place itself which we thought overrated. On the cliffs above we stopped at Golden Fox complex - well worth a visit. They have a cliff top pool / bar with amazing views and if you buy a drink they let you spend the day at pool for free!!! We stayed there all afternoon and it really was fab - expensive coffees but worth it! Corfu town also well worth visiting - in summary, we had a terrific holiday. Acharavi was just great, the island is beautiful and we will return someday! Thank you Century Resort and Skondros for making it so special a visit!
