Very nice hotel, clean, all rooms sea view, food very clean & fresh lots of choice. Surrounding bars & shops within short walking distance. Buses excellent frequent & easy to get around to different areas. Visit to main Corfu town recommended. More
We stayed at this hotel for 10 nights in September 2015. Overall we had a really nice stay and would recommend it. As usual there are pros and cons which I will highlight below:
Rooms â are quite basic (I wouldnât call these 4 star rooms). The TV only has 1 English non-news channel and the âdouble bedâ is 2 twins pushed together. However, we had a lovely pool and sea view from the balcony, and the room was kept spotless by the cleaners. It had everything we needed for the stay so no actual complaints. The minibar was basic, and be warned â the 4 bottles of mineral water in the fridge are not free. It would have been nice to have free water, but there are drinking fountains available throughout the hotel to fill up your bottles. The air con generally worked fine, but there were nights we woke up boiling because the temperature had changed. Again, we were pretty relaxed about this. Lastly, the fridge wasnât very cold. But all in all, we were comfortable which is all we wanted.
Facilities â we didnât actually do much at the hotel. We didnât see any of the entertainment or use many of the facilities but there seemed to be a lot on so I would say this place would be good for families. There was a good-sized gym which quite a few people used. There were 2 pools - the first being quieter, more for adults Iâd say and the 2nd closer to the beach which was busier and had a pool bar. Then there was the beach. Please note this is a VERY pebbly beach. It can be quite painful with bare feet so just be aware. Also, although it's a private beach, you need to pay for sunbeds which feels a bit unnecessary seeing as it was a private beach. Also they donât charge for sunbeds by the pool soâ¦ again, not sure why we had to pay. The beach is very lovely though and there are water sports available very close by. Lastly, we only got free wifi for 1 hour per day in the room - which didn't work very well either so not the best service at the hotel.
Food â we were half board. We had breakfast at the hotel pretty much every day, and had dinner in the evening a few times. Itâs standard buffet food. While there was a good selection to please most people, I wouldnât say it was the best quality â maybe just not to our taste. We spent most evenings dining out in a nearby tavern or in Corfu Town. If you go all inclusive, it all does work out well but you will get bored of the food. The service in the restaurant was excellent, specifically the breakfast staff. They work very hard!!
Location â youâre about a 20 minute bus ride into Corfu Town. The bus stop is right outside and the hotel shop sells tickets. Itâs a very cheap and easy way of getting out of the area. The local area has all the usual bars and tavernas, all very nice and not too expensive if you want a change from the hotel food. All in all a very nicely situated hotel.
I would definitely recommend staying at the Chandris for a nice hotel in Corfu, however after 10 days there I probably wouldnât visit the same hotel again if visiting Corfu again in the future.More
Hotel has never disappointed.
My husband and I have been to the Corfu Chandris several times and we have booked to go again in May. We celebrate a BIG anniversary whilst there and we chose this hotel and this beautiful island because of the happy memories we have enjoyed over the years. The Greek people are so friendly and the island in May is stunningly beautiful when you get out and about down little country lanes and explore the villages. Be daring and hire a car, it will make your holiday.
The staff have always been courteous and friendly, the food plentiful and varied, and the rooms large with good sized balconies.
The hotel is located in a superb spot with easy access to all good routes around the island as well as having a good bus service just across the road. One important thing to note is that all rooms look out over the beautiful tended gardens that surround the large impressive pool and the sea beyond.
GO AND ENJOY!More

One of the ugliest hotels we have ever been.
Staff does not care what is going on with the guest. They are interested only in your money. Ugly food, specially in thr si caled by them Taverna, which is not more than a junk. Room like hall in the wall.
But the "best" is the neglegance of the guest. They will not offer you even a plaster if you are bleeding of a wound!!!
Do not even try to go there!!!!!
Beautiful hotel set in lovely grounds, very friendly and welcoming staff, food great and very varied. Would highly recommend! Lots of entertainment, daily and nightly, also the Spa at the Dassia is well worth a visit, top class.More
