Relaxation is the buzzword here – and that’s down to 2 pools and a beach just outside the door.
Landscaped gardens surround this place, and the shingle beach is just outside. Plus, there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.
There’s a pair of pools – one is warmed up in the cooler months. The buffet restaurant mixes international favourites with Greek specialities, plus there’s a seaside Italian à la carte.

Quiet spring escape
This was a last minute deal in May .this was the first week of opening so we got a good deal.For the amount of money we paid which included half board we were not expecting very much.Indeed as we approached the hotel we thought our worst fears were being realised.In fact we thought we going into a prison as the look of the hotel from roadside view was not good.however as we walked into the spacious lobby we felt more relaxed and got a pleasant welcome from reception.but what would the rooms be like. The corridors seemed to have that prison look again and our worries returned.when we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised.the rooms were quite large with pleasant decor then out on to the balcony to a fabulous view across the sea to the mountains.the bathroom was of good dimensions.the food in the evening was very good with cheerful greek waiters to serve you.the breakfast was fairly basic but enough to suit most tastes.A nice walk through pool area brings you to the beach where if you turn left you can follow the beach down a small promenade with sea nearly lapping at your feet.a nice little cafe a couple of hundred yards down.there were a few more bars on the way but did not open until the following week.all in all I can't think of a better value holiday that we have had recently although it was early in season and prices will go up and it will get busier and noisier.But for us a perfect spring break.hopefully will return same time next year ps there is a travel company just up the road(turn right out of main entrance.they do a great tour of the island at a much cheaper price than thomsonMore

Corfu chandris- family hotel
I stayed in this hotel two times, both in June. Advantages: 1. Beautiful views, if you choose a room overlooking the beach (strongly reccomended, worth additional money, since otherwise you could end up in the room facing busy road) 2. Very well organized beach area- a big pool, kids pool, and a beautiful beach with both pebbles and grass, plus natural shade (plenty of trees). Sunbeds available all day, but additionaly charged. 3. Great food, wide choice of meat, fish, vegetable dishes. On the downside- in fool season, restaurant gets too crowded at peak times. 4. Professional staff, pleasant and forthcoming 5. Close enough to Corfu town- 20-25 min on a local bus, or 7 min by taxi. Buses run every 30 min, do have a.c. And are cheap, tickets available at supermarkets. Taxi drivers rude, drive while talking on the cell, overcharge. However you choose to go, make sure you get to Old town Corfu- worth a visit! 6. If you stay in Dassia for the evening, there is a walking path next to the beach, with a few bars, restaurants and coffeeshops. Calm and friendly. 7. Park for kids- decent, with natural shade in the afternoon. (Potential) Disadvantages 1. busy road with NO pedestrian crossing in front of this four star hotel! Crossing the street is an adventure. To be fair, you do not need to do that if you're boooking half-board or all inclusive in this hotel, since accross the street all you have is a few not so great restaurants and a few suvenier shops with over priced goods. 2. Family oriented. MANY small kids around. Lots of elderly people from the U.K., too 3. After mid June to mid August, it gets too hot during the day. All in all, a great hotel. If you're willing to spend just a little bit more, go to Dassia Chandris, right next to this one- four star but feels like five star hotel! If interested, please read more details about it in my separate review.More
Very nice stay
Overall the Hotel was very nice. Food a bit samey but good quality and plentiful. Our room on the 4th floor overlooked the sea and pools, and we had beautiful sunrises in the mornings and also when visible the moon rise in the evening.The staff were very helpful and took your plates away promptly.The evenings entertainment was poor , it may have been because we went 2 weeks before it closed,so the evenings were spent wandering up and down the bars and restaurants along the road , or just buying a bottle of wine and crisps and sitting back on our balcony .The bed was not very comfortable, The "old style " tv had only BBC World News or CNN all other channels were it seemed their Greek or German ones, it would have been nice to have had some satellite channels so at least you could watch a film to while away an evening. Fortunately the week we went (10th to 17th October) was lovely weather mid 70's as the previous weekend had rain and thunder storms, so we didn't stay in the room much. We had a very chilled out time there which is what we wanted as peak season would have had too many children running around . I'd rate this Hotel as a 3.5 star not a 4 as sold . It needs an upgrade on paintwork in the corridors and is looking a bit tired generally. Not very disabled friendly as we watched a few elderly people with walking frames climb up and down the stairs leading to the pools and beach with not a ramp in sight. All said and done we had a very nice stay but wouldn't go back to the Hotel .More
A great two week break at a great hotel
What a great holiday We spent two weeks at the Corfu Chandris with friends and we all said this was one hotel to which we would return. Stylish and classy, all rooms have a sea view and the sunset rising over Albania and the bay is to die for. Check in was 14.00 and we were a little early. But straight into the lounge for a glass (or two) of champagne! Check in was a breeze and the cases were promptly whisked off to the room. The rep was terrific! Our room had twin beds with a king sized coverlet. My only niggle was that there was only one accessible power point and that was taken by the table lamp so was a bit of a grumble if you had a hair dryer or needed to charge your phone etc. Next time I will take a two or three way adapter. There was no kettle for an early morning cuppa but a request at reception resulted in one appearing promptly, for free. The safe is free of charge and there was a small refrigerator ( badly in need of a defrost) but taht was soon fixed. The hotel has a policy of âno hanging washing over the balconyâ but there is a telescopic pull out airer/dryer that is definitely fit for purpose. The bathroom had an overhead shower with a hand held fitment but beware, the floor tiles in the shower cubicle could be slippery when wet. There seemed to be a never ending supply of hot water. An adequate hairdryer was provided and there was a shaver socket. Tip: use the hairdryer to demist the mirror after taking your shower! Plenty of towels, changed when you decided and the maid service was excellent. You are advised that water from the taps is of âdubiousâ quality but there is a drinking water point outside the lifts on every landing. Wifi was not free: â¬8.00 for 240 minutes. Logging off is automatic after 15 minutes if you should forget. Dining: Dining room staff were wonderful, particularly Alexandra and Maria, but were so efficient that plates and cutlery were collected almost before you were finished, Food from the buffet: âSameyâ I suppose but there was plenty of variety at every meal so we had no complaint. House wine at â¬18.50 was pretty expensive. Bar: Drinks were very expensive but there was a happy hour between 17.00 and 18.00 when alcoholic drinks only were 50% cheaper. There was evening entertainment and the bouzouki player was outstanding. Some of the turns made me think âDonât give up your day jobâ though, or perhaps I am being too harsh. Exit the hotel at the front, cross the road and you are on the strip where there are a selection of souvenir shops, supermarkets, the British health Centre, car hire offices and bars. Face the hotel and a couple of hundred metres on your left is Alexâs Bar, a family run taverna. The lady of the house is Welsh and can be heard in full voice singing the Welsh National Anthem if Wales are playing on the sports channel. Free wifi too. A couple of hundred metres on you right is Ericâs Place, a taverna with food and entertainment. Drinks are much cheaper at these two establishments Bus stops are on both sides of the road and an all- day saver was â¬1.50 from the ticket machine. Swimming: Two pools, the upper for serious swimmers and lower, more of a fun pool. Caution though: the depth markers in the upper pool are in metres! Towels are free on production of a coupon from reception and there are life guards on duty Walk down the gardens and you are on the beach ( pebbles) and there are several tavernas two or three hundred metres to the left. There is also a swim up bar in the fun pool where you can get hot and cold snacks. We were for two weeks from the 10th to 24th October and by the second week everything was closing so seeking out bars and tavernas when we were out and about was a bit of a problem but a great way of exploring. The plus side was that there were only 60 guests in occupancy All in all, a very enjoyable holiday.More
