Hotel Corfu Chandris  

Loading

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.

Ok

Visited the Chandris August 2014 for a week with two teenage kids. Hotels in a good position, very nice beach and pool big for Greece. Sunbeds were very close together and had to wait till 10am till the pool opened. Went half board, breakfast was good with loads of choice but only had dinner one night. Food wasnt very good and drinks are very expensive. Snack bar at the pool was also dear with milkshakes costing €6 and only snack they did were toasties. Hotel itself is probably more a 3 star and the cleaners didnt do a very good job. Bus stop is right outside which is good, easy accesto Corfu Town and Ipsos. Overall had a nice week but couldnt have stayed longer.More

Very nice hotel in so visited town of Dassia

This second half of august month, I spent with my wife as a vacation in Dassia, a town on the eastern seaside of Corfu Island in Greece. Dassia is a little town between the Corfu city or as it is otherwise called, the Kerkyra,on the south and the also little sea resort, the Ipsos ,on the north. We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful hotel with wide range of services and facilities. The very nicely designed hotel alongs on certain reach the road, that goes through the Dassia, in some curved way. The central part of hotel and its two, we may say, wings, make an ellegant entity that looks toward the Dassia bay and to the mentioned road. You'll have here 24- hour room service, and above all, the very friendly staff, always ready to assist You and to make some interesting activities during the each day of Your vacation. There is a very well conceived Spa and Fitness center within the hotel and a four swimming pools outside, toward the beach. The beach is with the sunbeds and parasols. The dressing rooms along the facade of the hotel, to the seaside. There are also and it is very relaxing for the eyes and the rest on it, wide lawn area with very well maintained grasses under the palma trees. The beach is of tiny stones and pebbles and the bottom as you gradually enter in the sea is sandy. The first 150 feet is shallow, You can deliberately stand. The sea water is very clean, You can even spot the fishes in it. The sea activities comprise water ski, parashuting ( paragliding),scuba diving . There are two restaurants with terrace, italian trattoria by the beach,grill house. For the motorised tourists, there is a free parking space in front of the hotel.The private sandy beach is supervised. The billiards, the table tennis, voley ball, golf putting are present as well. The food is great and offers You variety of the domestic cuisine. Strongly recommend for the repose.More

Great Hotel - Great Location

We stayed at the Corfu Chandris Hotel from the 6th to the 13th of August 2014 and had a really great holiday. Our room was really nice, clean and comfortable. The facilities at Corfu Chandris are excellent - the dinning area was very nice and clean and the food is great - I have to admit I put some weight on during the week! The pools and bars are great and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. Here is some advice for fellow travellers staying here - included with our room was a card which you can use to hire a fresh beach towel daily which was very hand - so there's no need to pack one! The hotel is situated next to the beach and has great sea views, in the grounds is a walled open air cinema which is pretty and has a film on most evenings. At the front of the hotel on the opposite side of the road is a bus stop, the No. 7 bus stops here every half hour and is a good way of getting to and from San Rocco Square in Corfu town (it costs €1.5 each way). The hotel has something going on most evenings, like a barbecue party or dance evening - so their is plenty to do. We had the best holiday ever and would definitely stay at Corfu Chandris again (hopefully next year!).More

Very good, especially with kids. Drinks though: £££££

We have just spent 10 days at the Corfu Chandris. We took our two young boys (1 and 4). We were half board, which was very good news: Dassia is not all that great for going out, we thought. The pools were nice and the breakfast and dinner (buffet arrangement) were very good, on the whole. The only real down-side was the price of the drinks around the pool area: c. £3 for a small (150ml) Coke, whereas they were less than half this over the road. This was coupled with a strict policy re. taking your own drinks to the pool. Silly really. If they were sensibly priced, we would have bought dozens and dozens. Nice however, and recommended for an "all inclusive" style holiday, with kids.More

Could have been so much better

I was really looking forward to staying here and might have got my hopes up a little to much. After disappointing stays in previous hotels because of noisy upstairs neighbours, I decided to try my luck at requesting a top floor room prior to our arrival. So when we arrived late at night and were greeted with a top floor room and a sandwich because we missed dinner everything started off so well..... Until we opened the room door. The room itself is very basic, I had to remember that it was not a premier inn and that it just looked like one. The room came complete with an overpriced warm mini bar (€2.50 for a can of pop) no spare plug sockets to charge or use appliances and no main light so when we unplugged the side lamps to use the sockets, the room would be in darkness at night. The bed was like a brick but bearable and came with an unexplainable gap at the back that could not be bridged. The walls are thin and we heard the couple next door arguing every night.... This would have been entertaining but I don't speak Russian. They left a couple of days after we arrived and after that we never heard anything from the new neighbours, however, We still had to wear earplugs every night because if it wasn't the extremely loud hotel balcony entertainment keeping us up it was the barking dog across the street. The bathroom.... Toilet, basin and shower, clean with 1 problem. The shower screen has no seal around it and no matter how hard you try not to get water through the gap.... The bathroom was flooded every time we showered. Maid service.... Excellent, the maid cleaned and changed towels and linen daily. Very friendly lady. Food Breakfast is your normal selection of cereal, breads and fried food but if thats not what you like for breakfast you could always have salad!!!! Tea coffee and juices were also on offer. Dinner was always a surprise and something different, we enjoyed it most nights although some nights we felt that some of the food was reheated leftovers from lunch. It could get a little manic in the food hall and could be quite noisy too. You have to buy drinks, even water and again these are quite expensive, €2.40 for a litre bottle of water, the shop across the street sells the same bottle for 50c. You are escorted to a table when you arrive for dinner and the ladies who do this always do it with a smile on their faces and are very friendly. They advise that when you go up for food simply cross your cutlery so others know that the table is taken and in use.... This was a great idea but one morning we came back to the table to find our drinks had been cleared... Luckily drinks are free with breakfast and one evening we were shown to a 'free' table, went up for starters, ate them and as I was about to start my main a waiter put a bottle of wine on the table, when I told him we never ordered it he looked at me blankly and then another couple arrived at the table with a plate of food, they obviously hadn't observed the crossed cutlery rule. However as we had already started eating, they were made to move elsewhere. The pools.... These do get very busy and there is a lack of sunbeds but we never had a problem if we wanted to lie around the pool. We stayed at the beach most times as the breeze is quite cooling and its a more pleasant kind of noise at the beach. Yes you have to hire a sunbed but for €2 I preferred this to the pools. We never sampled the swim up bar because the drinks were expensive, €9.20 for a cocktail. In all this hotel could be amazing but personally for me it wasn't and for the price we paid I am gutted it wasn't the 4* I imagined it would have been. With a few little changes though, it could be. Free water with evening meal, children to be accompanied by an adult in the food hall, offer free wifi in reception at least. I heard it was €4 for an hour.... Its free everywhere else you go in Dassia, get rid of the mini bar in the rooms and install a mini fridge, seal the showers and maybe make the smaller pool adult only. Sunbeds are in close proximity to the pool and when the kids dive in you get splashed. Diving wasn't aloud accordingly to the sign but the lifeguard was to engrossed in his mobile phone to notice..... Would I stay here again.... No. Would I go back to Dassia..... Yes More
