Saturday 7 June 2014 – We woke up in time to see Corfu port approaching. Of course it was our ship that was approaching the port and not the other way around.

Before our tour of Corfu would commence, breakfast beckoned. However, neither of us felt particularly hungry. It was possibly the wine we had last night – not a lot; just a bottle of white shared between the two of us. But neither of us are big when it comes to wine, so our imbibing ...

Hi all, promise pictures tomorrow. The ship doesn't have a good enough network to allow me to do that.
Good night,

... close to land and reached by going across a walk way. Back in town we caught some of the local folk in the traditional costumes of Corfu.

They looked wonderful.
Here, today is a public holiday to celebrate unification of the Islands in this area. We caught a snippet of a band playing and marching through the old town.The wifi connections in the restaurant and at the port entry were woeful so nothing has been posted today. Then ...

... and drinks continued. The restaurant had been owned by his family for 72 years. The owner was one of the best tourist guides that I had encountered. We slowly made our way back to the ship with the assistance of a local bus conductor. Relaxed by the pool, then dinner with our friends. Travel Tip 19 - Check with the local information centre on the dock before purchasing transfers. Local bus ticket only one and ...

... World Cup is upon us. I was beginning to get worried I may not find anywhere great as most cafés/bars don't show the games and you can only really see them in betting shops ( like sitting in a canteen, and no draft beer). that was when I game across bar Juventus. cheap draft beer, great atmosphere when games are on, and a projector outside which shows the game. there's also a good passageway down the side of the bar to sneak out ...

    Ermones Beach Hotel - No Quite What We Were Expecting!

    from

    Having recently returned from a weeks AI holiday at the Ermones Beach Hotel it would be an understatement to say my husband and I are disappointed. We have travelled to various parts of the world staying in anthing from 2*-5* accomodation so we know roughly what to expect and this hotel could by no stretch of the imagination be classed as 4*. The rooms were of adequate size but very basic and damp and in need of a total refurb. The first room we were allocated smelt very strongly of septic sewage which we refused to stay in. The second room allocated (which was directly next door) smelt a little sweeter - but only just. On the first full day of our holiday we found out why the rooms smelt when our bathroom and hall/wardrobe area became flooded due to the inadequate and antiquated plumbing system. The food was boring and very poorly cooked and presented with many of the dishes being aimed at the German clientelle (which made up approx 75% of the guests staying). The soup was obviously out of a packet and the majority of the vegtables out of tins. The beer and wine were both weak and tasteless and to our surprise we found that despite having paid for an AI holiday we were expected to pay for bottled water and mixers ie if you wanted a G&T you had to pay for the tonic- something we had never come across before on an AI holiday. The entertainment was supplied by the staff employed to look after the children during the day - and it showed! As for the rest of the hotel staff - we found only one receptionist who generally greeted us with a smile everyone else employeed we found to be very unhelpful and at times abrupt. Whilst from a distance the beech looked lovely when you actually got down to it there was very little in the way of sand and you had to battle your way through yards of seaweed before you could get to swim! All in all the only good thing about this holiday was the view from our balcony which we have to be honest and say was beautiful.

    Wonderful holiday

    from

    We went to Ermones Beach hotel in March 2005. We booked as a last minute holiday. Getting it cheaper than the brochure price. On first arrival at the hotel. The views were fabulous seeing all the way across the sea. The fact that it was on a hill side put us off abit due to us having two children one of 15 and one of 10. But there were railings. and our minds were rest assured. The food in the hotel was definatley 5 star. Having a range of meals every night. From Spanish Dishes to English. With friendly and polite staff there to help. The entertainment was excellent. Never having to leave the hotel at night was a bonus. And the children were amused all through the holiday. The two kids clubs are not to miss. And entertained all of the children staying at the hotel. Anyone planning to book this holiday i would definetley reccomend it. And i would visit again without fail.

    Fantastic Holiday

    from

    My family and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of last July (husband-47-myself 39, twins aged 4 and toddler 16 months).We had a fantastic holiday.The rooms were very 'Butlins chalet' (I knew this before we went);but they were cleaned daily and no shortage of clean towels daily too.It had an air-conditioning unit which was a must as it was very hot. All the staff were very friendly especially the receptionist who acknowledged us every time we passed the desk. NO LIFT between reception and first floor, so we had to carry the buggy up the stairs (not a problem really for us but would be for older people and people with mobility problems-the hotel is totally unsuitable really if that applies).The stairs were to the pool and restaurant so could not be avoided. The pool was excellent with a large childrens area contained within and plenty of sunbeds around. The animations team were first class (especially Marco-what a star) and I trusted my children with them in the Kids Club, the likes of which I have never known. Children aged from 4 could go 10.15-12.30, then after lunch 2.15-4.30. They would take them to children's table for their tea at 5pm returning them at 6.30, and then take them again 7-8.30pm allowing us to dine in peace! There was also a show nightly at 10pm performed by the animations team.The FOOD was some of the best I have ever eaten. The choice and quality was superb.There is a grill, a bufffet area and also show cooking some nights, desserts to die for and ice cream. I never ventured to the gymnasium so cannot comment and we did not eat at the beach but did enjoy a beer there. The cable car took some mastering, sometimes you could be in there for a while trying to get to the right floor! I would recommend the hotel, just bear in mind the room style and lack of lift.I never left the hotel for the week we were there so cannot comment on the immediate vicinity (reason being we hired a car and spent the next week in a villa in Kassiopi, the opposite side of Corfu).

    EXCELLENT HOLIDAY

    from

    Right we booked the holiday one week before, and didnt know what to expect. We arrived by taxi which took about 25 mins (great),we were welcomed by a the receptionist and shown to our room. The rooms are a bit on the small side but very comfortable and clean, with it being on the side of hill the views from the rooms are wonderful.

    from

    We were very disappointed many of the features were not on offer (end of season) no cocktail bar (end of season) no pedelos (end of season)no diving (end of season). The rooms were sparse not a problem but they were damp which was. A balcony collapsed when my children were on it the staff were not concerned about the welfare of my children just the damage to the balcony. We looked around at the complex and found that most of the balconies were crumbling. The staff started to dismantle the place whilst we were still sitting there. Will i recommend it? Will we ever go there again? NO they have had their season. One saving grace is the view.

    Not 4* status

    from

    This hotel was pleasant, but definitely geared towards German speaking guests. Whilst some of the staff understood English, sometimes it was difficult to be understood - most tour guides and information notices were in German. When we arrived at 03.30 the desk staff barked at us to leave our cases outside the hotel without explaining that they bring them to the room for you. We had to find our way to the room in the dark with very little guidance from the night staff. Consequently we could not go to bed until they had been brought, which was about an hour later.

    Brilliant holiday

    from

    We had a brilliant holiday. We went on 6th Sept.2004 for 2 weeks. The food was lovely,plenty of choice,beautifully presented and piping hot. We enjoyed the shows each evening,which were,contrary to what we had heard,mostly in English. The rooms were spacious and kept very clean. Yes,they could do with updating but this is only a minor niggle. This was definitely a value for money holiday. If you want a relaxing holiday with good food,comfortable accomodation and spectacular views then this is the place for you.
