We stayed here in mid august with our two boys aged 9 and 12. The location of the hotel is beautiful, right on the beach with the Albanian mountains as a stunning backdrop. The hotel was full, but we found we had the quiet pool to ourselves more than once. The restaurant staff were lovely especially our waitress Alexandria, who always made time to speak to us. Eating on the beautiful terrace every night was stunning and the food was very good. I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. We saw in the sea before breakfast and before bed, the location is excellent. We also had access to the sister hotel next door and its pool which made a nice difference, although i think our hotel was better. I guess my only negative was that our room seemed a little small for 4 of us - not that we spent any time in it. We hired a car and drove around the island and there are lots of beautiful villages beaches. Go and visit Corfu you wont be dissappointed!More
Arrived prepared to be disappointed as we don't do package holidays-big mistake. Flight was longer than we hoped but comfortable. Medium ride to hotel from airport. Had 15 minutes to get to dining room before it closed. Thompsons in Brighton had assured us there is a specially laid on late buffet for late flights. NO THERE IS NOT but dining room staff v welcoming.
Room v average but good views. Aircon not working but slept well.
Battled for 3 days without AC. Thompson rep helpful in a way by reporting it but advised on not changing rooms as would have same problem. We had spoken to staff about the issue / they were so helpful. Spyrios the technician tried his best. Finally gave in and moved to an upgrade. Far more comfortable room with stunning views and modern bathroom plus tea/coffee making facilities. Brill! We also received a bottle of wine and a plate of Baklava.
Food on the whole good not really outstanding but always well cooked and fresh. Would have like some authentic traditional cooking, think one is called Stifada lamb dish.
What works for the hotel is their staff. Cannot fault their service ethos. Warm and friendly. The guest relations woman was so good in dealing with the aircon problem. She is mentioned in an earlier review. So caring.
Yannis the Head in the dining room was professional yet down to earth. It's a real skill removing a dirty plate with an action more suited to 'strictly come dancing'. And always so cheerful.
Compliments to the staff for their continued professionalism / it cannot be easy knowing the hotel would be closed in the next few days,
We r thinking of going back nxt year and now will have to take the upgraded room after experiencing the comfort. An ordinary room will just not be adequate.
Yes the hotel is tired but it is not run down. And for us the attitude of the staff was far more important than a more up to date hair drier. If a modern hairdryer is that important just pay the extra for an upgrade and you will have one!
Usually reviewers who complain place too much emphasis on the material goods than the 'people factor'. Plus if you are not prepared to fork out for a luxury holiday don't expect everything to be 5 star! Read in previous reviews about the highly priced drinks / well don't drink so much.
We are seasoned travellers and rate this holiday as one of the best/so many positives. We will be going back.More
End of season 7 day break
My wife & myself decided to return to Corfu after several years.We stayed at the Dassia Chandris last time,this time we ended up at the Corfu Chandris.My what a surprise !!
It rained when we arrived,but that's life ! Straight away we were made welcome at reception and the Porter took our luggage to our 4th floor.As it was evening we went for our half board evening meal,excellent food by the way.Don't know how anybody could fault the food. Breakfast was lots of variety again.
The slight negatives were drink prices,but once we realised the happy hour was the answer,buy at half price!!Also water could have been offered free with evening meal.
Free safe facilities in room,big plus!!WiFi needs to be more flexible with time allowed.
Have noted comments from other visitors about pool bar being closed,but it was last week in October !! Do strongly agree that deckchair should be free for paying hotel guests.But like I said,just slight negatives.Staff were professional throughout our stay.
Guest relations manager Ariadne Fytopoulou took time to listen to suggestions,especially concerning having to give room number (440)every time we went to eat.She was kind enough to offer us a complimentary latte each.
In a nutshell,yes we will be coming back with friends & look forward for sunshine next time.Well done,it's tough to run a big business like yours âºMore

Dassia Chandris Hotel Corfu
A very friendly hotel which shares facilities with the sister hotel next door, allowing for a varied holiday using both venues. The staff are really friendly and helpful, leading to a very relaxing two week break.More
shortly after arrival it was apparent that the pictures in the internet have been done by a very good photographer. The entire hotel is very old, not very well looked after and quiet dirty. The staff made no secret out of there working ethics not beeing very helpful and we often had the impression to disturb them by just beeing there.More
