So good, we're going again!
(Holiday taken September 2014) What better compliment to pay this wonderful hotel, than revisiting - we have just booked another week there for 2015!
The location is so relaxing, many of the 'negative' reviews I've read cite the 'isolation' of the hotel as an inconvenience, but for us that's what makes it perfect, it's a real oasis of calm. The views across the beach (which is just steps away) and sea are wonderful, whether that's from the restaurant balcony or the outside bar areas.
We booked a swim-up room, which caught the sun for most of the day. We spent most of time here as we had our own private loungers and access to a very quiet pool. This was a real bonus. The swim-up rooms also come with DVD players, so we took a few to watch of an evening.
We booked a taxi transfer to/from the airport, which is recommended as the hotel is on the opposite coast to the airport, so you get there much quicker.
The staff are just fabulous and friendly, it's lovely to be greeted by the manager and senior staff at dinner in the evening. Reception staff were very helpful, making it easy to book the coach into Corfu Town, book treatments, book a meal in the Asian restaurant, change beach towels (though it would be nice to do this on a daily basis rather than just once a week).
The food is delicious, we looked forward to the selections every day! Breakfasts have a great selection, lunch is great down by the beach, and back to the restaurant in the evening for a buffet style meal. The bread & butter pudding was a highlight - I hope that makes a reappearance for our next visit!
We really cannot wait to return and experience this lovely place all over again!More

Second time of staying here (September 2014). From the moment you arrive you are taken care of, nothing is to much trouble. Rooms excellent, food yummy.
The one thing that put this hotel above others is that you alway see the management making sure everything is in order.
Nothing but excellent service througthout our stay.
Gift shop has a god range of gifts, the couple that run the shop our friendly and helpful and also was happy to barter.

end of season
The hotel was very clean and tidy, lovely room with swim up pool, made a whole lot of difference. Tidy beach and plenty to see while snorkeling... Ideally wanted to scuba dive , with it being end of season there was little available and most local bars had closed and little excursions on. Really nice village up the hill, wish we'd found it sooner, also caughty the bus to the main town, fairly simple and plenty to see. A good couple of restaurant s in the hotel although after a week its a little too much of the same thing.More

The best hotel on the island
This hotel is one of the best hotels l have ever stayed in. The food is excellent the staff are warm and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. Whenever we go back we always request the same room, as we like the peace and quiet. When we first went there we had a problem with our air conditioning, by the time l had walked back to our room from reception (about 2 mins) there was already someone there fixing it. One morning l went down to breakfast and l didn't want anything on offer, so the chef cooked something special for me. The staff are always smiling and cracking jokes. Overall some of my fondest memories on the island of corfu, are at this hotel.More
