We stayed at the Akrotiri for four nights. We wanted a few days to relax on the beach in the middle of a rather hectic 3-week European vacation. It turned out to be a very good choice. As soon as we walked into the room and saw the beautiful ocean view from the balcony, we knew we were at the right place. We had a "superior" room on the fourth floor. Note that the first, second, and third floor rooms are actually lower than the main reception level. The room appeared to have been refurbished and looked very clean and modern. Water pressure in the shower was low, but this seems to be the norm in Greece. We went snorkeling from the private "beach"--note this is not a beach but a rocky outcrop with a ladder into the deep water--you need to have some agility to get in and out of the water. There were interesting underwater rock formations and some limited underwater fauna. Watch your step, the stairs to the private beach have no railing and a steep drop--definitely not recommended for unsupervised children or inebriated persons! We spent more time on the public beach, which is okay but rocky rather than sandy. It is not the best beach in Paleokastritsa. the infinity pool is nice, and it seems a lot of guests spend most of their time there.
The hotel staff was helpful. The one weakness of this hotel is the food service. The breakfast is okay but not great. I agree with previous reviewers who have compared it to a school cafeteria line. It is not set up as a proper buffet. We did not attempt to eat dinner there, as there are many good dining options (Nausika, Nereids, and others) in town, a short walk down the road. If they could overhaul and improve their food service, it would make a big difference.
In summary, the Akrotiri is a nice, relaxing place to stay, with some of the most stunning views in Corfu. However, if you are traveling on a tight budget, you could stay in one of the cheaper places in Paleokastritsa and still have access to some very nice beaches and dining options.
