I have decided I am too old for overnight ferry trips (Brindisi in Italy to Igoumenitsa in Greece) that spit you out at 4.30 am. That was after a night sleeping across 3 very hard seats ("reserved seats") in the half-lit cinema of the ferry, with a baby crying and doors banging all night. Only 2 functioning toilets for the entire deck. But we did get some sleep, we survived and lived to tell the ...
... down into the actual town and got amazing giros, pita and taziki sauce. Greece is known for their forfeit products but it was still funny to see Dr. Dre Beats for 20€ (about 27$). After the trip into town it was a very relaxing day, until our departure for Athens. We left at 8pm and arrived in Athens at ...
In the morning we had planned on doing the booze cruise, but it was cancelled. We decided on doing the kayak safari. The weather got very cold very fast. But right before we were going to leave the sun came out and the wind calmed down and it was a gorgeous day. We went to a deserted island, sat there and had lunch and played a very interesting game. I had wanted to go cliff diving but the water was apparently to choppy and wavy, which was why the booze cruise ...
After a very long day of traveling from a four hour bus ride, to a 14 hour cruise ship ride, to a 2 hour ferry ride and finally a 20 minute bus ride to the Pink Palace, we got to Corfu! After a very unorganized check in, we headed straight to the beach! We got some drinks and sat on the beach for a few hours. That night we got dinner that was included, and the restaurant slowly turned into a ...
Another part of Greece. It is all so beautiful. At night there is an acrobatic show, the men doing the acrobats are soooooooo strong, they're like 5 times stronger than an Olympian. They were incredible, lifting each other and doing amazing things, I couldn't keep my eyes off them. We had to share our dinner table with another family each night. We were sitting next to a Welsh family, their last names were Diamond. They were so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Belvedere Hotel Agios Ioannis
We have just returned from a week at the Belevdere hotel and to say we were disappointed was an understatement, we arrived in the early hours and the reception looked stunning, the night porter was extremely pleasant and helpful, however that is where the compliments end. The next morning we go to breakfast to find tinned fruit, cheese and ham decorated with wasps ( I appreciated it is difficult to keep insects out of the dining room when the doors are open, but most of us eat with our eyes and if the food was presented better in proper hot and cold units and not just placed on tables - it would help) luchtime food was probably the best meal, however you need to be there when the food is first put out as it was left for long periods of time.
I would just like to agree with the 2004 review 'Dont go there' and the last two reviews regrading this hotel. First impressions of this hotel looked good at 4 in the morning on arrival, however how disappointed were myself and my family.
Mr Rossco - you obviously do not have children if you enjoyed this hotel. I have just returned from a week at this dump with my husband and two young children. When we booked this (two weeks before travelling), the hotel website promised great things for kids like card room, satelitte TV and ice creams and juice. There was also a baby sitting facility offered. Reality hits at the airport getting on the transfer coach when a crowd outside the airport start shouting at us about how bad the hotel was and how they felt sorry for us. I thought they were having a laugh. On arrival, we were told we could not have air conditioning unless we paid 4Euros per day (this was not specified on web site). We eventually got a key to an air conditioned room to find it wasn't even cleaned and even had the previous occupiers belongings in it. Finally obtained a clean room and have to say that although it was clean, the patio doors were insecure and we only got 1 bath and 1 hand towel for the entire family. These were changed once in the 7 days we were there, in that heat these should have been changed every day. Day 1breakfast: only recognisable thing was boiled eggs in a tray - even these were grey on the inside so not sure how long they had been lying. Pool side snacks were a joke, curled up cheese and something resembling dried up SPAM, along with dried stale crusty bread. Having paid for an all-inclusive i did not expect to have to pay for bottles of water either. (The hotel water was off for 2 days out of the 7 we were there) All our drinks were served in plastic vending machine cups as we were not allowed to have glassware. Only guests who were self catering and paying euros over the counter got a glass. My children did not even get an ice cream at this hotel and they ate nothing either. I would not have fed this "food" to a stray dog. By no means are we fussy eaters and again have no problem with trying new things either however no way could children have eaten at this hotel. Red/White wine, lager and Ouzo were the only alcoholic drinks available in the all-inclusive option, so again we had go elsewhere to find spirits for the adults and ice cream for the kids. The Marabou bar is not open, the Beach bar is not open, the "Watersports" are around 2km further along the beach. There was no entertainment offered at all. The rep for this hotel was as useful as a chocolate teapot, she must have run out of complaint forms as there were so many folk complaining. She would walk away from us if there were more than 4 people trying to talk to her. We were constantly fobbed off and told to put our complaints in writing. So here we are folks, if you have children, dont come here. I feel sorry for the bar/restuarant staff in this hotel as the management havent got a clue how to run an all-inclusive hotel. We were also chased by the staff to try and cut our bands off. We would gladly have given them over without having scissors stuck in our faces. By the way, the web site has now been amended since our stay (more than 20 families complaining). Do you think they have actually taken note and that we were right after all? You would be better off not trying to find out and go somewhere decent instead.
How anyone can say that this hotel is anything but bloody awful should be sectioned.
Food and snacks
the hotel was very nice and clean so were the staff but the food was awful we had to go out all the time to eat and there were no free ice lollys or anything like that
My partner and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel. I feel that this hotel was mis sold to people who were on holiday at the hotel at the same time as us as all they ever did was moan- I feel sorry for Chris who is the manager and all his staff for putting up with their constant moaning! My advice to them is to read exactly what you have been sold- it states rotating menu and that is exactly what it is- they expected burgers and chips everyday, its a different culture yet they expected mc donanlds food everyday! If they wanted this then they should've stayed at home!y Anyway, thats my little moan about them over! The hotel is situated about a 30 minutes walk from benites and about a 50 minute walk from mesongi, the views are breathtaking and the walks are very nice but the only down fall is the fact that there are hardly any paths and the driving in corfu is slightly mad!
A great hotel
i have just come back from two weeks all inclusive at this hotel. as the managers response to the previous review states it is now under new management. the food was great and the all inclusive really was all inclusive. you get so much food and drink. staff were pleasant. rooms clean. beach a little small but not too bad
