Have people stayed at 5 star before? Because this place just isn't 5 star!!
On arrival we were told we told we had been upgraded to a sea view as we had book the garden view. Great we thought until we got into room 101. As soon as we entered we realised this was a bad room.
It had a partial sea view with the restaurant next door. People eating could actually see into our room and it was noisy. We asked to be moved straight away back to the room we had booked, but they said sorry the hotel was full. How can this be??? Our room was booked. Obviously someone else didn't want the room and we got the bum deal!! took 4 days to get moved!
Also the layout of the hotel is rubbish. If your staying on the left side of the hotel, you have to go up to the third floor cross through the foyer then back down the ground floor on the other side of hotel, then go out through what can only be described as a fire exit. This becomes very monotonous quickly! Not to mention, not very 5 star!
I like wine, my girlfriend doesn't. That means no wine for me in the al cart restaurant, as they only serve bottles and will not serve by the glass. How ridiculous!
We were B&B thank god. Its so expensive to go all inclusive 140 Euros a day for us both!. If you did go all inclusive here is a description of what awaits. Long times waiting at the pool bar to be served! Only until 18:00 when you have to go up to the foyer bar to carry on drinking for free. Oh but the entertainment is still down at the pool bar so no free drinking while watching the entertainment. Only one admission into the al la cart restaurant. Nothing to worry about as its the same menu as the pool bar and most of the food is frozen anyway.
There is just so much to list about this hotel, its endless. Here are our other main gripes!
1.Pools are salt water! This is not the case in other hotels in Corfu. Why here??
2.Smelly drains around pools means people are fighting to get back beds on other side!
3.tiny paper cups have to be used around pool. so don't expect to drink at the sunbeds.
4.All pools are shallow so no quick entering the freezing pool.
5.No fresh orange at breakfast, its cordial.
6.Wasps are everywhere (not sure if this is similar elsewhere though)
7.Cats are kept on the premises (something to think about if you don't like cats)
8.Pool towels are changed from room by day. When your at the pool. So what do you have at the pool??
9.steep walk down to pool and beach ( not a problem for us. if you have problems look elsewhere)
We wont be booking hare again.
