We stayed here for a week from the 11th to the 18th October and we had an absolutely great holiday. We arrived by taxi and were personally greeted by Yolanda in Guest Relations. She gave us a tour of the hotel and throughout the week she made contact with us to ensure that everything was ok. I can honestly say that she was brilliant and was a credit to the hotel.
We had a Junior Suite and the views were outstanding. A sea view on a high floor is a must if you want to make the most of the hotel.
We were also upgraded to the 'Famous Grade' which is one up from the 'Premium Plus' as it was our Anniversary. This was a nice touch and meant we got some extra goodies in our room such as flowers, wine and fruit and also discounts in the Spa and an extra night in the A La Carte restaurant.
This was the first time we have been All Inclusive (or Premium Plus as the Hotel call it) but I can honestly say it was well worth it here. The drinks and food are quite expensive so the Premium Plus option is a 'no brainer'. The hotel is in an isolated location so you will probably spend most of your time in or around the hotel. There are no 'wrist bands' but a Hotel credit style card which you flash at appropriate times. We would have spent twice as much if we hadn't gone for the Premium Plus option.
The hotel itself is probably a 4 star but coupled with the fantastic views and the fabulous friendly staff, (yes, all of them were them were extremely polite, friendly and efficient) we had a near five star experience. In particular, 'Panos' in the restaurant was brilliant and was a nice welcoming face at meal times.
The pool was clean and refreshing. The pool bar was very good with nice friendly staff.
The small private beach was a nice experience. We popped down there on 2 afternoons for a swim in a perfectly calm and warm sea. We even water skied on one afternoon which was brilliant as we each skied 2 miles in the direction of Albania and then back again. Exhausting but fabulous scenery and well worth the 35 Euro cost.
Popped into Corfu town one day which was a nice experience. 10 Euro using the hotel shuttle. You can do it cheaper if you walk for 20mins to the local bus stop but why would you want to do that??
Overall a great holiday and good value.
