My husband and I have just returned from a week at the 3 Brothers, half board, what a relaxing week- first time in Corfu. Had a morning flight so arrived at the hotel by 3pm (approx 1 hr transfer). 3 brothers is located in the middle of the main shopping/bars etc street - there is only one! On arrival we were greeted by Melanie (who has worked there for years) our cases carried up to our first floor room. I had requested a sea view on the 1st floor, the room was small but perfectly equipped, I think it had just been redecorated. Only thing we didnt have a balcony - only 3 rooms out of the 36 do not have a balcony - as we had booked it last minute we couldnt really complain, but would recommend that you ask for a balcony and sea view and maybe ring the hotel a week or so before to check. Lovely little touches throughout the upstairs of the hotel like comfy leather suites, vases of flowers - hubby prpbably didnt notice these! The safety deposit boxes are in the foyer and you have to pay a small deposit for one, but would recommend just for peace of mind. The dining area is mainly outside, but under a semi covered canopy, you can choose where you want to sit each time - nobody hassles you. We had half board, thankfully, as the days of cheap Greece no longer exists. The food was great, plenty of choice and different each day. The wine was not too badly priced, on a par with British hotel prices. The swimming pool was amazing, fairly good size with a jacuzzi at one end, fortunately we had a week before the school hols, so there were no screaming kids playing ball in the pool. Most of the guests, it seemed, had been to this hotel at least once before and I would certainly go back, everyone was so friendly and soon made lots of friends. The staff, I would say, is its main selling point, they were fantastic, the same 4 waiters every day of every week serve you ( I found out that they work a 6 month block !) and most surprising of all is that one of the brothers is there constantly ( I think his name is Lecki ( apologies for the terrible spelling), he takes the time to read through the menu and explain each dish and then takes your order. I was ill - too much sun - at the beginning of my stay and he made me some rice soup one lunch hour, which seemed to to work. The entertainment each night was good - I even won twice on bingo!
The resort is small with the main shops being on one stretch, but you can get everything you want from this one street, day and night, the hotel is set on the beach, but to be truthful, apart from a morning walk after breakfast, we didnt go into the sea, no need with such a great pool. Anyway I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone of all ages, its wonderful and by far the best I ve stayed in on the 3 islands Ive been too.
