My husband and I chose this hotel for one week half term break and stayed half board. We knew it was end of season but did expect the hotel to be as advertised. Unfortunately it was not. I am aware one recent review said the pool was open. It was not! We and several other holiday makers checked with the manager who told us it had not been cleaned and not to use it. We had also looked at it and it was certainly in a poor state. Unlike any other pool I have ever seen in a hotel. He advised another guest to use the pool of the hotel opposite but as that hotel was closed for the season, we could not do this.
The hotel also boasts what looks to be a nice bar area, but alas that was also closed the entire week despite many of us asking it to be opened up so we could relax in it in the evenings. Especially as many other bars and restaurants in Dassia were closed so not much to do in the evenings.
The rooms were basic, which is fair enough as it is only 2 star. Ours was also cleaned every day. But the towels were so threadbare they resembled nets rather than towels. The shower floor had a nasty crack in it and the shower curtain did not reach the floor so the bathroom flooded every time we had a shower.
Breakfast was again basic but adequate and we really enjoyed the evening meal, but then we like Greek food. There was not really any choice although the waiter did try hard to give an alternative if someone really didn't like their meal. In fact the waiter, cook and cleaner did appear to work their socks off.
For me most frustrating thing is that I
know I could have got a cheaper, higher rated hotel on Corfu town, but specifically chose this one for its pool area and bar. Alas, neither of these
were provided and the manager simply shrugged his shoulders when guests made comments saying it was end of season. In my opinion a hotel should either be closed or open. Or at least make it very clear if any facilities are not going to be open during your stay. We were not foretold otherwise we would have looked elsewhere. For that reason it was the worst hotel we have stayed at in any of the Greek islands. Despite not paying that much, I know for a fact we could have got a better hotel for the money we paid. If I were
you I would consider looking elsewhere, especially if going at the end of the season!
