“ABYSMAL!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Nice, friendly and helpful staff and management - but that's the only good thing.
Everything else is of such a poor standard that we moved out after 1 night.
I'm amazed that some people give this hotel a reasonable rating - they must have very low standards!
I feel sorry for the Manager (a really nice man) who has to take such comments on the chin, but the truth must be told.
THINK TWICE before booking this hotel and only do so if you're prepared to accept sub standard accommodation.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are less noisy

We arrived at 00:30 Corfu time on the 7th of September 2013 and were immediately told we were being moved to another apartment as the hotel was fully booked even though we booked our holiday back in June. Firstly the food and service in the hotel was abysmal, you had absolutely no idea what they were serving you! It was practically thrown at you before you could even sit down on the chair and make yourself comfy. It could have been anything and I don't think they knew what a vegetarian was. We waited fifteen minutes between our meals, my luke warm pork chop was eaten at snails pace whilst we waited for them to muster up an omelette. As for the desert let's just say they may has well given me a bowl of water the sponge was so drenched, DISGUSTING! The breakfast was just about adequate and thankfully the Aronda apartments we were moved to were nice with a lovely clean pool.

The pool at the Hotel Oscar looked more like an aquarium, pure green algae at the bottom! No-one would dare swim in there for risk of e-coli. When we asked for help at reception toothless Spyros was nowhere to be seen as was no-one else (ghost town) We were told he'd be thirteen minutes. All the apartment keys were lying on the top anyone could have walked in robbed the place!

Corfu itself was totally amazing though bad has so much to offer. It made up for all of the above with easy trips to Corfu Old Town and a fantastic boat trip to Paxos and Anti-Paxos which was out of this world.

I don't know what they eat in Russia to go all inclusive at Hotel Shambles but it must be pretty rubbish!!

Room Tip: Go elsewhere or hope you get transferred to Aronda apartments

Arrived at this hotel early hours of Wednesday 11th September with brother and sister to be told no rooms available unless we moved down the road to another hotel or shared a family room .We agreed to look at family room, just a room with four beds no storage space for clothes ,a wardrobe with just 3 hangers. Bath was dirty as was toilet. Agreed to take the room for one night as we were all tired and not really up to moving Regretted this as room was right over the bar where music went on until 2 or 3 in the morning..Food was poor no variety at breakfast, just bread, cold boiled eggs, cheese and a type of spam, some days got yoghurt and tinned peaches. Evening meal on half board was very basic no choice at all, had pork in various ways for five meals, chicken legs for three and I'm not sure what the meat the other two days was . Swimming pool was dirty and uncared for ,spent most time at nearby Range Pool .Finally got one other room for my brother on Saturday . The only saving grace for this hotel were the restaurant ,bar staff and receptionist who were really lovely people ,

Arrived at Hotel Oscar 9th September 2013. Told hotel was overbooked and was moved to the Hotel Palma Beach which was opened up just for 12 of us. No air conditioning and had to walk to Oscar for our food. Moved to Oscar after 5 days.
Rooms basic, swimming pool unusable. Pool filthy and covered in debris. All people were using the pool next door at the Rose.
I booked this hotel after reading good reviews on this site. What these people are eating at home I don't know!! The food was absolutely atrocious. Breakfast was dried up bread with cheese and boiled egg. No toast.
Evening meal was worse. We were given one chicken leg with hardly any meat on 3 days out of 5. Other days was a slab of cold pork in oil. Dessert was melon nearly every night. Maybe one scoop of ice cream on the occasional night.
There is not much to do in Dassia itself. Bars and Beach. Not too bad for couples.
The area does not take debit cards at all.
At the end of 10 days couldn't wait to come home. Hadn't eaten much as food so awful.
This was the worst hotel I had ever stayed in. I complained about the food but nothing was done. You didn't have a choice of meals at dinner.
DON'T BOOK THIS HOTEL !!!!!!!

I stayed here on the b&b board as I knew I would want to eat in various places.
The hosts and staff are fantastic and couldn't be more accomodating if they tried.
The room was turned down everyday without fail and it's a hotel where I felt safe my belongings would remain untouched (by the end of my stay, I didn't even lock anything away).
Safes are available if required, and the aircon is included (a lot of places will add a surcharge for this).
Added bonus (as was a B&B deal and primarily self catered on this experience) they provide a fridge in the room… perfect for you own drinks etc for the mid night drinks :)
Ideally located in the heart of Dassia a short walk to the beach and everything else you could want.
If your realistic with expectations this is right up your street. But please be realistic, you will not get England 5* here, this is Corfu and from previous stays in this country I can assure you it is worth every penny.

Enjoyed a good holiday break, very relaxing.

Our break was booked very last minute and the choice of Dassia and this hotel was based on proximity to airport and beach as well as cost (this was a bonus and unexpected break and we wanted minimal onward travel from the airport and in resort as well as working to a budget).

Dassia has clearly contracted due to the Greek financial situation (as has pretty much everywhere), yet had enough happening for our needs and I hope will be poised to benefit from an upturn as the situation improves.

The hotel was pretty much as described by others on TripAdvisor and presented good value for money - especially when compared (based on other Advisor comments) with the bigger resort hotels such as Chandris, just across the road. The hotel manager was warm and welcoming and we thank him for this and our one disappointment stemmed from the hotel pool and gardens. We chose not to use the pool as it didn't appear as clean as it should be and instead paid to use a pool down on the beach adjacent to and slightly to the north of hotel Chandris.

Where Opportunity Knocks is the pool and gardens could be fantastic and the rooms could also benefit from some updating. I would happily pay treble the current room rates when this is complete. Having spent time in the gardens, another opportunity would be to use some of the fresh fruit growing there (when available) at Breakfast to replace the tinned fruit offering - probably a cheaper option for the hotel.

When all said and done, we enjoyed a very relaxing, good value break and would recommend to others on that basis.

Thank you

This review is about the attached restaurant Kirki as I didnt stay in the Hotel Oscar. The restaurant I felt was the best in Dassia. The cost was a little more but the food easily justified an extra few euros. We ended up eating there every evening as the standard of food and the service was guaranteed. There were 2 staff that I felt did their job exceptionaly well. The lady was called Georgia and the chap whose name I cannot remember but he was married to a danish woman made that restaurant. They were great representatives of this business and made guests feel so welcome. An absolute assett to the restaurant and it would be a loss to the restaurant if they weren't there. . Every meal that we had was really enjoyable.
