Wonderful hotel in beautiful surroundings. Lovely swimming pools and very well maintained. The Restaurant is exceptionally well run with friendly efficient staff and varied menus. We stayed in the main hotel as there are bungalows in the grounds. Quite a few steps as the hotel is built on a hillside.Will certainly return.
The best place to stay in Corfu
We visited in October of last year. We were delighted with the hotel from the minute we arrived. We were met by a member of staff who took us to a seated area in the lounge and talked us through everything to do with the hotel. She then took us to our room, the cases had already been delivered and we were left to settle in. Like others who have mentioned the view being blocked by the trees, we were in one of these rooms but as the weather was so hot, we turned this into a positive and we decided we were grateful for the shade. The birds, although very noisy, were also entertaining and its not every day we see a site like that. Venturing down to wander and explore we thought we were in heaven. The gardens, walkways, sitting areas and beaches were immaculate. There was more than enough seating even though we were told that the hotel was full. I agree that the food could have been a touch warmer but there was so much choice there was always something different to try every time we ate there. The staff were brilliant without being overbearing and the dining room was beautiful. As for the wasps, do some of the guests expect staff to stand around them with a can wasp killer? At that time of year there is nothing anyone can do about the wasps and people should not criticise the hotel for something that is out of their hands. The other restaurants on the site were fantastic and we were fully aware, before we went, that some of the restaurants were sited at the other two hotels. This is because we do our homework BEFORE booking so we know what to expect. I should also mention the reception staff for their patience and humour. The other person that deserves a mention is the shuttle bus driver who was always friendly and professional. To sum up, I really don’t know how this place could be improved and we will definitely go back - something we have never done before and we travel a lot. Thank you to everyone at the hotel.
We've stayed at a number of 5 star hotels and we agreed that this is probably the best one we have been to. Staff were so happy to help. We did go at a time of year where it was not the school holidays, so it was not overcrowded or busy, and we got very lucky with the weather. We were half board, and it was possible to switch dinner for lunch as we had booked several dinners out. The quality of food at the lunches was superb - three courses are included for the lunch from a set menu. We actually only had the buffet dinner once, and think it was not as good quality as the lunch food. The beaches were lovely - could be quite busy but there were always staff on hand to help find a lounger -- and then get you a drink! Swimming out to sea with the clear blue waters was idyllic. The free shuttle bus into town was great - and ideal for some of our dinner reservations. This hotel is ideal if you want a week of rest and relaxation in a luxury environment. We did get a deal online, and it was remarkable value. We are looking to return next year - and we have never been to the same hotel twice before!
all I can say is fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We stayed after a cruise and were lucky enough to be upgraded to a sea view mini vila with are own private decking across the sea. We love this place and if any says diffrent i would say you didnt stay here. The food was again amazing every day. I have just rebooked for 10 days in September and i cant wait.
Amazing location / beautiful food / perfect relaxing holiday
After booking this hotel literally the night before we trvelled, what a beautiful surpise. Roughly 20 minutes in a taxi to the hotel from corfu airport. (the transport which was booke through the hotelk website directly). We arrived lunch time ish where we were greeted with cool towels, water and fruit juices. We didnt have to queue to check in. We were seated while it was all done for us. We got friendly with all the staff especially down by the beach bar. They were so friendly, genuinly interested in talking to us. It almost feels like you are on your own little island in the middle of nowhere its such a chilled out location. My husband and I went alone without our daughter. It was a good job to be honest as there was just a little kids club during the day for children but absolutely zero entertainment at night. Its not something we have experienced before so we planned our evening meals late so that when we had finished it was time for a drink in the bar then early nights (ish) to bed. It was the last week before the hotel closed for the season so it was very very quiet. There was no fighting over sunbeds which is such nice change (not sure if that is the time of year or whether its normal). There were towels placed on all the beds so you could sit/lay out straight away. We literally went for breakfast, straight to one of the little beache and laid out for the day. There was options each day to use the italian or pool bar/restaurant with a discount of 20euros p/person discount. That way you can enjoy an a la carte lunch at a lower cost. We went on a half board basis and the bull was quite high as drinks aren't cheap. In fact it was roughly 10 euros for a short or about 5/6 for wine and beer. There is a little shop near the buffet to buy snacks, water , sun creams, basically anything you could need. My only issue i had was the wasps....... im not exadurating when i say its ridiculous. To the point where you cant eat your meals outside, or even have your drinks. We asked several time what was being done about them but they said they have tried all sorts and nothing worked. But....... we didn't see any traps or anything to attract them out of the way of the restaurants or food areas. We had to put our puzzle books over our glasses or the wallet that the bills came in to stop the attraction of them. I would definitely come back here, the service is perfect, the food is outstanding. Perfect relaxing resort but just not ideal for young children i don't think. By the looks of the grecotel website there are other hotels with family facilities. Thank you all for a wonderful week, i highly recommend your hotel.
