We were surprised to find the bathroom unclean upon our arrival.. there were hairs along the bath, obviously the bathroom floor had not been swept or mopped prior to our arrival. We called for housekeeping and they rectified immediately. However, on later going to use the bin in the bathroom at the side of the toilet we found that had not been emptied!!!! We reported these things to our rep.
We felt the foyer of the hotel was very nice, and what one would expect of a four star hotel. The restaurant was good and the food was good. However, the corridors to the bedrooms certainly needed attention and were gloomy and very shabby. The bedroom was only just alright but the bathroom was tired and needed renewing. The non slip bathmat was pretty awful and looked as if it had been there for several years.
We would certainly NOT go back to that hotel and makes us wary now of booking a four star Thomson hotel in the future.More
First impressions were that it was a lovely hotel. Got to our room and as booked it was sea view. Nothing out of the ordinary, your normal hotel room. No tea or coffee making facilities, which is a first for me. There was the safe which was free of charge, which was good. A fridge which held the mini bar, which consisted of water, and soft drinks. Didn't use this as very pricey and you could get from right across the road from hotel. Also the fridge did not look very clean. Nice bathroom with walk in shower, on my booking though it stated a bath! Television was as I have experienced everywhere, satellite channels consisted of CNN and another news channel. We were on the third floor, so nice view. Our patio door handle was broken, no handle at all on the outside and inside one was hanging on by one loose screw. Good job we were on third floor. Food- lots of variety for breakfast. All cereals, fruits, continental etc. cooked breakfast items. Tea, coffee, and juice. We were on half board so all this was included. Evening meals- salad bar was lovely, so much choice. Hot meals- not up to much really, got a bit samey! Ate out for 3 nights. Any drinks ordered with your evening meal has to be paid for, even water. Very expensive as well. €4.50 for glass of house red! Pool areas were lovely, clean and well kept. All staff were great as well. Not an awful lot to do around the area though. You would have to get a bus to get anywhere worth visiting.More

My wife and I have just returned from the Corfu Chandris Hotel and have only been home two hours
Due to the fantastic time we both had I felt I must write this review straight away
The hotel was bright airy and spotlessly clean and the rooms cleaned every day by the most lovely ladies
Food in the hotel was very good and a good choice although my wife is a vegetarian she still found plenty to eat.
We found the staff to be very helpful and polite and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable
I would like to give a very special thank you to Constantina for being so kind to supply me with a CD of a special Greek tune that I so like she is a credit to the hotel and I hope she never leaves there
Yannis was very pleasant and made sure that the meal times where spot on for the holiday makers and in attendance at all times
The only minor problems was something that nobody could do anything about and that was the amount of wasps and midges that where about I say to anybody going there do not forget to take your skin so soft cream
It was also very nice for the manager Manelia to give a little speech at the fare well gathering and a thank you to all for being there a very nice touch
Steph our Thomson representative was a lovely girl and was on hand to solve any problems that we may have had she is a credit to Thomson
The beach is not one of the best due to the small shingle area before you manage to get in the water but once in the sea bed is very soft sand and the water very shallow which makes it great for small children
Although there is not to much to do around Dasia in the evenings it is still a busy little place with several eating and drinking places around and every body so friendly
Anybody looking for a stay in Dasia then you certainly will not go wrong by staying in the Corfu Chandris Hotel
A big thank you to allMore

Dining in short trousers
We had a wonderful week at the Corfu Chandris. Everyone we met was really welcoming, staff and locals alike.
Our room was on the first floor with a lovely sea view, and if you're an early bird, an amazing sunrise. The room was a good size and very comfortable and the bathroom was immaculate with a good shower. One thing I would say is that as I have long hair, the wall mounted hair drier wasn't powerful enough to dry it completely so it would've been easier if I'd taken my own (not a complaint, just a tip for others and wasn't a big problem as my hair dried naturally once I was outdoors).
I struggled slightly with choice for the evening meals as I'm vegetarian, although the food itself was very good and the sweets were delightful. My partner was a bit miffed that he bought long trousers solely for meal times (the website encourages formal dress) however, the dress code wasn't upheld and most men wore shorts, so he needn't have bothered really. It turned out ok as he was happier in shorts as we enjoyed gorgeous weather and everyone was smartly dressed anyway.
Dassia itself has a handful of pleasant bars, albeit quieter than expected, but Corfu town and Paleokastritsa are only a 20 minute bus journey away, with buses stopping right outside the hotel. There's a British walk-in health centre directly opposite and a pharmacy 2 minutes away too.
We're not ones for siting by the pool so spent most of our daytimes outside Dassia itself (everything from sight-seeing, shopping, scenic walks, going on a glass-bottomed boat ride to a traditional Greek festival!) but enjoyed our evenings in the bars close to the hotel; ending every night propping the bar up at 'Great Shakes' which is a stone's throw from the hotel steps.
Our niggles were only minor ones and we'd definitely recommend the Corfu Chandris and Thompson for a late season break. More
