... We had
tzatsiki, corfu olives, feta in olive oil, taramasalata, moussaka and finished
off with traditional greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts. When I get home I
will be testing out my new Greek cooking skill.
We have a day on board the ship tomorrow as we are now cruising towards Turkey.
We had our final few hours around the pool before heading back to our bungalow for the dreaded packing, mind you after all the travelling we do it really isn't that bad a task and as I pack away I'm already thinking of the next time the suitcases will come out !
We sat on the verandah with a drink watching the various activities on the water as usual, over the week we have noted the various cruise ships through the binoculars as they pull into or out of Corfu Cruise Terminal. We ...
We had to vacate our cabin by 9 am, we weren't leaving the ship until 13.45 but we had received a complimentary cabin until 13.30 RESULT !
It meant we could have a leisurely morning without having to lug our hand baggage about, the decks were quite crowded so we took to the peace and quiet of the cabin, David dozing and me reading.
Enjoyed a light lunch before we had ...
... was assumed we would be able to dock. After which she jumps away from the wheel and orders me to do it! lol I obeyed though, and was feeling pretty confident - then George is standing in a narrow gap between two other boats (NOT part of our fleet) and tells me to 'bring it in'...!!?? Sure thing George! ha Long story short - ACED it! Scared George at the end when he had to scream "PUT IT IN REVERSE!" A second time, but I had it! ...
... up the sun. We had a hankering for a Greek seafood lunch but, as the owners of the restaurants lining the main square had been trained in highway robbery by Ned Kelly, we found a lovely little taverna in the back streets where we had a great seafood lunch. After lunch, we headed back to the ship and spent the afternoon floating around the pool, as the temperature was in the low to mid-30's. We enjoyed Happy Hour at the Crow's Nest bar and Shirley got into the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Calimera Ermones Beach
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
My wife and our 2 children aged 14 and 10 travelled to corfu on 03 sept 2004 with our friends and their two children.
