Just come back from a 10 night stay. We had a room on the east side of the hotel and unlike the previous reviewer enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the sunrise over the mountains and the bay beyond. Also unlike the previous reviewer we thought the gardens beautiful tended by an actve and busy groundstaff. Food is ok - big and varied breakfast menu and we always enjoyed the evening buffet. The pudding chef is clearly very talented. An upgrade to Aristos a la carte restaurant is a welcome treat.
The sea swimming was wonderful - big bay for lengthy swims and a number of varieties of fish for the snorkeller. What this hotel has in spades is the location, location, location - sea views all around yet still close to Corfu town. The photographs here do not lie.
Cannot understand other reviewers gripes about the staff who were all very pleasant and helpful at the end of a long season and the state of the rooms - if you are going away for a sunshine holiday a bedroom is really only a place where you wash and sleep etc - it was fine. Also the gripes about the Russians - they were all polite and well behaved - if you cannot cope with non-UK folk then perhaps you should not go abroad.
There are some negatives. The gym is small - should be bigger and better equipped - and the price of drinks is I am sorry to say extortionate - 7.50 euros for a goblet of fresh orange juice in the bars, 5.90 euros for a beer as examples - so many guests leave the hotel in the evening for the nearby tavernas. The hotel management really need to look at this - if they reduced their prices they would sell more drinks and overall make more money.
