How to Get There
Very well located like an island of the best available service
Surrounded on three sides by the Ionian Sea
Perfect restaurant serving Greece as well as International delicacies
Out of town but timely shutto availability
A beautiful hotel nested along a superb slice of coastline. The resort itself is immaculate and there is not a thing out of place from the minute you arrive until the minute you leave. That includes your room, communal and dining areas as well as the beaches and pools. There are ample sun beds and even though we were there in the peak of the summer holidays - it never felt busy and if you were unable to secure beds together, the staff would do everything they could do please their guests. The buffet was great but just slightly repetitive and also very western - but I guess that’s to suit their guests. I would’ve liked more Greek food! I would definitely visit again!
The hotel was lovely and the rooms were spacious, clean and homely. The pools with the copious variety were fantastic and the sea was the best part of the holiday as it was warm, clean and fun to swim in. Only downfall was that you have to travel quite far around the headland on the boat taxi service to get to play football or tennis. this took a little while but the boat ride was quite enjoyable.
Serene amazing landscape, stylish elegant rooms, extremely elegant lobby, perfect buffets, toilletries of great quality in adundance,very helpful and polite personel ,only 10 min from old city's center.
Overall a perfect choise for vacation to remember
Let me start by saying we would go back to this hotel as it is in one of the most beautiful locations in Corfu. However, there are issues. To make it easy for readers I have listed the good and not so good parts.
The location is stunning
The bedrooms are bright and stylish and although modern are not stark
All areas are spotlessly clean
Very comfortable sun beds and plenty of them
Lots of pool towels
A variety of sunbathing places
Lovely reception area
Not so good
The biggest disappointment was the food. Not that it was inedible, but it was repetitive and lukewarm at both breakfast and dinner and we had to queue to go into the dinning room for dinner. Just not 5 star, probably 3.5 - 4 stars.
Not very comfortable beds/pillows. Some rooms have restricted views so try for a higher floor
Cancelled advertised entertainment twice in seven days and the replacements were second rate
Some staff were not very welcoming
Overall we felt that the hotel was operating on a reduced budget, despite us booking a full price holiday, that said the good parts would encourage us to return on a bed and breakfast basis with a hire car.
