we are just about to leave costa blu today, the hotel is very well kept but lacking in character, there only appears to be a limited staff, the greeks are obviously going through a sticky patch money wise.
To be fair the four staff that we did meet were all helful, but the general manager was in limited supply, which for a supposedly five star complexe was not good. I only saw him once during the week and that was at breakfast when he gort himself an orange juice, he didnt speak.
if you decide to come here come on a board only basis as the food is awful. we along with most other guests ate out the whole holiday. the food was not only cold most of the time but there was no choice and for a buffett style catering that was not good. On a positive note Benitses is only a ten minute walk and there are loads of places to eat at resoanalbe prices.
The little beach infront of the hotel is very nice(pebbles) and water of the ionian sea very warm.
The hotel has a hatch by the pol where they serve drinks and food, and that the only place you can go for a drink as the bar in the hotel was never open due ot lack of staff.
Woud I go back, yes but only for the accomodation defintely not the food.
