Myself and Andrea stayed at The Apollon Hotel,Paleokastritsa in June,2014.Where do I start?I never give praise for lip service's sake but Karen and Spiros have a priceless,fantastic team here.The staff are better than any 5 star hotel staff.They work tirelessly to please us customers and we both soon regarded them as friends.I (Mandy) am a fussy eater and don't eat red meat and the staff often willing did me a chicken kebab upon my request,they would also give me different flavour icecream when I asked for sweet.Big thankyou especially to Yiannis and his fantastic cook and wife Athini.Also many big thankyous to Dora and Joanna,Nikos,George and lovely lady Christina.
Both the annexe and main hotel both have seaviews,basic yes but the excellent service and food are 5 star here also the rooms and bedding are all kept nicely clean,definately the best place to stay,go half board as the Apollon does the best food in Paleo.Also try the Apollon bakery here...the mozzarella paninis MARVELLOUS.
I cannot praise this hotel enough,do not be put off by people moaning about the wasps as this is no fault of the hotel,it's nature,there's many wasps in many places.
Also the Apollon has no swimming pool,don't let this bother you as it is situated metres from a number of bays at Paleo and also many nearby hotels let you use their pool if you buy a drink or two.Also well worth walking past the annexe and hiring a boat from the lovely Marina and her son Spiros,about 50 euros for the day for a motorboat,fantastic!!The Paleo water is very cold but beautiful,crystal clear water full of gorgeous coloured fishes and you can see the rocks clearly on the bottom even when the water is deep.
Thankyou to all at the Apollon,we are both missing your fantastic food and lovely hospitality,well done all of you.xxxx

Room Tip: Anti mosquito medicine take with you as I found out the hardway,also only one repellent works,buy it at home it's called Jeet.The annexe is more private and quiet than the main hotel and has fantastic sea views as does the main hotel,however please note that the annexe has a fair number of steps..Get the green coach bus to Corfu Town,dirt cheap fare and if you're after Greek 14 carat gold it's much cheaper than at Paleo,there's a good jewellers on the actual Liston in Corfu Town,then enjoy a lovely drink there,it's like a miniature Paris.Plenty of shops ,cafes,etc.

Very well run little hotel with amazing views over the bay from the balconies. Second floor is the most desirable as the balconies are huge. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Spotlessly clean and all round great service. Good value for money too.

Room Tip: Choose the second floor if poss

Beautiful location, clean and spacious rooms, wonderful food cooked by Yiannis wife BRAVO! lovely people what more could you want? I'd previously visited Paleokastritsa some 17 years previously and when hubby and I wanted to get our yearly Greek "fix" we decided to have a week's R&R there. We read the reviews on this hotel and they weren't wrong so off we went. We had a great boat trip round the caves, a brisk walk to the monastery, a trip into Corfu town for a change and the rest of the time was comatose on the beach soaking up the sun and swimming in the safe, clear sea which was like a lake. My only criticism was that whilst we had a nice quiet time on the beach around 11 every day and each hour after that, bus load of people from other areas came and squeezed themselves between the people hiring their umbrellas and beds at an exorbitant price (€10 per day) which made the day time really busy and people watching interesting but the evenings were tame in comparison. For 1 week it didn't bother me but for 2 I would have to hire a car and go off somewhere else.

Room Tip: First floor very hot, the second has large but communal balcony so careful when you've just come out of the shower! Take your mosquito deterrents.

Loved every moment at the hotel. We had a top floor room with private balcony (room 206) which we loved. The view was stunning. The staff make the hotel the special place that it is. Everyone is lovely and the bakery is amazing! I am a faddy eater and the restaurant staff made sure I was well fed and put up with all my whims! The food was delicious and the portions generous - also its the first place I have eaten in the med where the hot food is hot instead of luke warm! The view from our room was stunning, went to sleep listening to the sound of the sea. Can not recommend it highly enough. Loved the library of stuff you can borrow too! Thank you Apollon for making our holiday perfect!

Room Tip: If you want a private balcony and the best views, ask for the top floor in the main building.

My husband and I spent a relaxing 10 day break at the Apollon on our first trip to Paleokastritsa.
Location-wise the setting is excellent, directly opposite the stunning Aghios Spriridon beach which is not only the ONLY sandy beach in Paleo, but it also has the most beautiful, buoyant emerald water we have ever swam in within Europe. There are several caves in and around the beach itself although the beach does become very busy from around 10am onwards due to incoming day trippers. And this is why the location is so superb because if you are lucky enough to grab a room on the second floor you will ave access to the large shared terrace from which you not only have a superb view but also the room to lie in the sunshine relatively undisturbed. However if you are not a sun worshiper like myself I'd recommend a room on the top floor which has lovely private balconies with the best view. to enjoy any time of day of night.
The annexe building just around the corner also has superb sea views-not only of the water on Aghios Spridion, but also the two smaller beaches nearby so technically you have 3 sea views! The annexe is also much quieter as it set back a little from the main road.
Rooms in the main building are basic but scrupulously clean. The maids came in every day during or break and the entire floor was mopped and swept and a new bathmat provided. The bathroom floor does get very wet due to the traditional shower arrangements (no curtain) so do be very vigilant.
The only quibble I have about the room is that the fridge was not clean on our arrival. Thankfully I bring disinfectant wipes with me on each holiday so I could give it a little wipe down before placing our drinks in there.

As the hotel is right at the farthest end of the resort, it is lovely and peaceful throughout the evenings when the tourists and day trippers have left the beach and the only sound is the waves crashing in to lull you to sleep. Utter bliss. As there is no resort centre as such-more a smattering of shops, bars and restaurants over a 4km stretch of road the best way to head in the evenings is left, out of the hotel and up the road. There is a supermarket called Kathy about 2 mins walk uphill which is overpriced, however all the supermarkets in Paleo are and we found that there wasn't much difference in price between them so head here for the convenience if nothing else. I have written reviews on several restaurants, bars and snack bars spots throughout the resort separately so please feel free to take a look.

I'd recommend a trip up the hill to the monastery. The walk up takes about 10-15 minutes and you get a great view of the hotel and bay half way up. Its free, however you can make a donation to the monks on entry/exit. Please remember to cover shoulders and ankles, otherwise you will be asked to cover them in a loaned sarong on entry. There's some beautiful views of the rocky coastline from the outposts too.

The hotel offers a Half Board option, which we booked in advance for the bargainous price of approx £7pp via a hotel consolidator. However it is available in resort both as a guest at a reduced rate (10 euros I believe) or 12 euros to the general public. Three courses of offered with a choice of 3 options on each (vegetarian and traditional option on each). Portions are much smaller than the standard size portions on the menu, however it's all home made, fresh and it does fill a hole and the standard is very good. The menu appears to be on a 7 day rotation too. Initially we enjoyed the food, however we soon became a little bored so instead swapped our evening meal for lunch and went out for a light bite in the evening followed by a walk and a few drinks instead on alternate evenings.
Breakfast was very good compared to some of our previous experiences in Greece! There's abundant white and wholemeal toast, canned fruit, eggs, cold meats and cheese, salad, yogurt, porridge, cake, juice, tea/coffee and condiments on offer plus the occasional rice pudding and absolutely everything apart from the bread is home made.

The resort is hilly, so not suitable for less mobile or those with children who tire easily.

Our request for a room with access to the private terrace was granted and the 'two Karens' were very friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. We shall certainly return again in the future.

Room Tip: Best views from the top floor.
