Went to Corfu today which is the start of the Greek Islands.
It was beautiful. Corfu is the number 1 destination for the rich and famous.
Had a tour of Corfu town and of course did some shopping. Than it was time for
Masterchef as it was off to a restaurant for our ...
... SUPER-behaved since then! We had our first back anchor mooring, and I was on the wheel. I think I did well, but some people say I hit the beach a little too hard! *shrug* We stopped at a secluded beach and all got in the water with our floating toys. They offered jetskis, wake boarding, tubes and parasailing. It was FANTASTIC!! We then got back onto the boats and headed out for Corfu. Maria took the wheel for some photo ...
We have arrived! The overnight ferry was good - it was FREEZING!! They had a shop, video games, casino and some fantastic lounges. We played a lot of ******** and got told off a lot for having our feet on the seats! The rooms were bunks fitting 4 - Ben and I slept on the top bunks. I was so scared I was going to roll off! ha We took the bus down to the ...
Today's port is Kerkira in Corfu which is the second largest of the Greek islands in the Ionian Sea. The ship docked about 2.5 kilometres from the old town so we hopped into a taxi as it was a bit hot to walk the distance. It is a beautiful town with narrow streets and alleyways and lots of shops - especially clothes shops - which gave The Management plenty of places to visit. Of course, she found some clothes to buy while AJG sat outside and people-watched ...
Today we sailed around more, stopped off at a lunch stop for a swim and then docked our boats in the afternoon and had to clean out the boats inside and out then we all hopped on the Internet cafe to log in with everyone back home and had a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mareblue Beach Resort Agios Spyridonas
Abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno fantastico al Blue Bay nel luglio del 2007. Non c'è molto da fare fuori dal complesso, ma in ogni caso siamo andati fuori solo due volte. La cucina è ottima, con un'ampia scelta (se non mettete su peso prima della fine della settimana, c'è qualcosa che non va!! ). L'intrattenimento è eccellente. C'è anche un personale che organizza attività sportive come polo acquatico, aerobica acquatica, stiramenti, freccette, pesca a cucchiaio, ecc. Potete partecipare in qualunque attività a qualunque ora del giorno!
Nos lo pasamos fenomenal en el Blue Bay en julio del 2007. No hay mucho que hacer fuera del complejo, pero de todos modos sólo salimos del hotel dos veces. La comida es maravillosa. Hay mucho para elegir (¡si al final de las vacaciones no has cogido unos kilos es que te pasa algo raro!) y la animación es fenomenal. Hay personal que organiza actividades como water polo, aeróbic en el agua, estiramiento, dardos, pesca etc, etc. ¡Puedes hacer actividades a cualquier hora del día!
We had a fantastic time at Blue Bay in July 07. There isnt much to do outside of the complex but we only left the hotel twice anyway. The food is great. Lots to choose from (if you dont put weight on my the end of the week then there is something seriously wrong!!) and the entertainment is great. There are staff there doing water polo, water aerobics, stretches, darts, spoon fishing etc etc. You can do an activity just about any time of the day!
The night entertainment is a bit sketchy. It depends on your taste really.
The bar is good. If you like your bacardi breezer style drinks then drink the kumquor (?sp), beer is free as is vodka so there is a decent range of alcoholic beverages.
All in all a very good week!
We booked a late deal to Blue Bay and had a great time. Some of the other reviews had mentioned that there were lots of mosquitos and wasps - they must have been on holiday when we arrived because it wasn't any worse than anywhere else! The food was of a good standard in the main restaurant and the lunches at poolside were good too. Snacks however were limited to frozen mini pizzas and hot dogs, although if you were lucky some days you could grab a souvlaki. Unfortunately the old German custom of sunbed grabbing in alive and kicking here so unless you are prepared to be up at the crack of dawn you can always do what i did and just move towels from unoccupied beds!! Plenty of Scots, Germans,Dutch, Scandinavians and not a lot of " Southerners" so all in all great unless you like to hear Oi Oi every two minutes. Entertainment team were quite good although the first choice reps omitted to tell us about the 2 hour queue outside the airport on the way home which seems to be the norm. The views from this hotel are among the best i've seen and the accomodation itself is very good. Be aware that some of the tavernas at the local beach will try to rip you off by giving you "free bread, butter, olives etc" and then charging you for it! when i challenged the owner he replied " you eat, yes" Comedy genius!! You live you learn. Do try the free bus to Kassiopi, its a beautiful place and book excursions hear as it is at least a 1/3 rd cheaper than the travel agency!
Flew out early morning to Corfu and was very excited at the prospect of staying at Blue Bay Escape as we had some friends stay there previously, and boy we were not dissapointed. Checking in, we were told to tell the porters our room number and they would deliver our luggage to the room while we had a walk round the beautifully landscaped gardens. After a wander round we went back to the apartment to unpack and get ready for dinner in the main area near reception. We were welcomed by the Maitre'D who showed us to our table and we were approached immediately by the waiting staff to take our drinks orders. Buffet service is the order of the day and the food is absolutely out of this world. Great entertainment throughout the day by the entertainment team. Chicco, the team leader, we know from a previous holiday in Tunisia, and his team are absolutely fantastic. The reps: James, Jason, Blair & Ashley are fabtastic, nothing was ever too much trouble, but I must make a special mention to the kids reps who looked after our three: Tastic Tracy, Loopy Liverpool Laura, Hyper Heidi & Awesome Ashley - girls you were all fantastic and we miss you loads!!
Una vacanza veramente eccellente, prenotata all'ultimo minuto come un'alternativa al campeggio sotto la pioggia in Gran Bretagna!
Fueron unas vacaciones realmente geniales, encontramos una oferta de última hora y las reservamos, ¡en vez de quedarnos de camping en Gran Bretaña bajo la lluvia!
A truly great holiday, booked as a last minute deal as an alternative to camping in the rain in the UK!!
me and my boyfriend have just returned home (on the 6th july) after reading reviews before we went we were worried about mozzies and wasps. however, we both loved it there it was lovely and peaceful and there were a total of 2 wasps (that didnt bother anyone) and as for the mozzies i didnt get bitten at all but my boyfriend did - 4 times. aslong as you use the moz spray (or in the shop next to the hotel you can buy a roll on (that was highly recommended by other guests).
me and my boyfriend booked our holiday to Blue Bay as a last minute deal with first choice, we only went for a week and we went all inclusive which we never normally do in Europe... but it was only £230 each so we couldnt argue with the price! We werent expecting much - i hadnt been able to find any decent reviews on the place and there werent any reviews at all opn trip advisor! But like i said it was cheap - it was going to be hot and it was on the beach - thats all we wanted.
