... and dry moats surrounding the Old Fortress are renowned for repelling countless Turkish invasions.

We also toured the British-built Church of St. George located within the fortress walls with stunning views of the sea.

After leaving the Old Fortress, we re-enter the Esplanade where we saw the famous cricket pitch, a favorite leftover exercise from the British occupation, located on ...

After working the breakfast shift and cooking up a host of specialty dishes, We went out to eat at lunchtime and then returned to 'The View' to continue the game. After more changes to the rules, I did well to achieve a respectable 3rd position in my debut game (out of 3). After several more games and some takeaway pizza, Steve claimed another victory, albeit ...

... have been toga wizards, I’ve no idea how they managed to make them look like proper dresses. Drinks, dancing and games pursued. In the early hours of the morning hilarity broke out in our room with Kiel coming back plastered and doing funny things. There is a video of the lot, but im no going to describe it in a public forum where I know my grandparents are reading. Haha. Great night anyway!

Tomorrow is out last half day in Corfu, hopefully not too hung ...

On the way back, the bus got rowdy. There are a few trigger songs that set of this lot. One of those songs came on and it was like feeding time at the zoo. We had people losing their shirts, swinging off the roof, doing he worm down the aisle, it was a party on the bus for sure. Arrival at the pool bar as disappointing, as all but maybe 10 of the other 100 people had gone to bed. Oh well you work with what you're give, and ...

... taught us some of the steps. Greek dancing is traditionally done in big circles. It was lots of fun and the food was really good too. Haven't been able to update much as the wifi has been pretty poor. I'm on a ferry to Venice right now and have had to buy some wifi. Didn't get on the ferry until 3am this morning as it was delayed so got lots of sleep ...

    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.

    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.
