How to Get There
Our sons (20 and 11 years old) had two scuba diving sessions at Amphitrite Diving station directly at the Hotel. We met very friendly and experienced staff with professional equipment. After a careful introduction to the safety aspects they dove right into the blue sea and had an extraordinary experience of the underwater world of Korfu. They explored the beach and dove in the bay of the Hotel. Afterwards they dove around the outer part of the island and saw a very vivid and stunning environment. The staff took very good care of them, they (and we too!) felt save at every single moment. They showed everything and each diver had his companion, each of them talking fluent english. Our sons enjoyed the experience very much and we highly recommend this experience to everyone who would like to see a wonderful underwater world with great companions. Thank you so much!
We visited Corfu and stayed for the Easter break. Unique location the best spot in Corfu with amazing views and sandy beaches. The staff is truly very polite, the rooms very clean and comfortable and the food served at the restaurants is very well prepared. A must stay with reasonable prices. Aristos restaurant is distinguished and serves amazing food.
We stayed at the hotel for one week. The whole week was very nice staying at the hotel. All of us enjoyed this hotel.
The best thing about the hotel was clearly service and staff. Every staff was smiling and saying hello or maybe shaking hand even. Everyone wanted to help and talk. Italian restaurant service was expecially good and fast. The food there was very tasty indeed! So all i can say, service was superb!
Our room was clean and pretty cool! Every room in this hotel has a good view. Our view was very beautiful and the early sunshine shined to our room. Sun was shining to rooms that were on the other side almost all day, so i think the balconies were pretty hot. The rooms had a "Do not disturb" light (see the picture), which i found useful, but the clean staff didn't watch that light so i recommend to use the old style thing. So the rooms were good and always clean. Only problem at our room was the water came really slow from the sink and i don't know why.
Morning breakfast was very versatile and fresh. Every food were really tasty and fresh. At the busy time the staff directed people to tables to prevent any empty places (like 3 people goes to 4 chair table) so i found that to be very smart.
Elevatros were pretty slow and old. One elevator was stuck, so then only two elevators were working. There was not any a/c in the elevators so on the hot days the elevators were pretty hot. At one elevator the button that should close the doors at the elevator were not working. So the elevators were minus for me.
So all here combined
+Rooms clean and beautiful
+Many good restaurants at the hotel
+Live shows at evenings
+Pools were very clean.
+Very beautiful hotel.
-slow and old elevators
-20 minute drive to Corfu Town
-parking place little far away from the hotel.
Just got home from a week in the hotel, here is my honest opinion, everywhere in the hotel is spotless, kept clean throughout the day, there is three very small beaches, plenty of sunbeds and you can always get one, the food was great with great selection, there are a number of restaurants to go and enjoy a nice quiet meal, the staff are great and nothing is to much for them, the only disappointed thing with this hotel is the price of food and drinks, at lunch your looking at about €45 for a small pizza , salad and a beer, so if you go to this hotel take plenty of euros with you you will need !!
Fab interiors, decor on arrival is gorgeous with massive picture windows with floor to ceiling glass framing views to die for!
We had a Deluxe Family Suite, 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms. Floor 5 sea views. Sliding doors between, 2 balconies and TV in each area.
Buffet restaurant was very good, every night an excellent choice of food.
My only niggle would be the breakfast buffet in particular could be kept warmer although I know with people opening the lids constantly it’s probably not easy.
We were going to dine in the fine dining restaurant but the buffet was so good we didn’t bother as we go out for nice meals quite often anyway.
The drinks are pricey 10.50 Euro of a G&T. But the bottles of tonic were large so to be fair it lasted me twice the time that a UK size would last me. The wine list was available from around 17 Euro upwards which wasn’t too bad.
The staff were lovely, the entertainment was classy not bawdy. Singers and musicians in the downstairs seating area.
The area was beautiful, apparently the premier part of Corfu. Taxis to Corfu town and Aqualand were 25 Euro each way. But the hotel does run a shuttle service.
Pool area was great also the private beaches. You could quite easily get a sun lounger at 10.30 in the morning not like some hotel where they are nabbed by 7 in the morning so that was pleasant. All in all a lovely stay, we hope to return one day and will recommend to our friends.
Note to Management: please put some hooks in the ladies toilets on the ground floor as we don’t like to have to put our designer handbags on the floor!
