Travel Blogs from Corfu
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 ...
... was going well until we hit some waves and she started to over-correct and reefed the boat to port - we all screamed at her and Corey jumped in to take over ha Because we'd been in trouble already, the rest of our sailing adventure involved us sucking ass as much as we could. When George said "Sails", we were the first to 'copy' on the radio and scored ourselves rope burn to get those sails up first!! ha We were like ...
... cream and took advantage of the free Wifi. Because we were there for so long giving them business, they brought us out plates of fresh watermelon to keep us fresh - loving the hospitality. I don't do hats very well, but couldn't resist getting a wide-brimmed for only €4!! Ben picked up a second hat (wider brim) for €2.50. Everything is so ...
... 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 ...
The only reason i came to Corfu as opposed to elsewhere in the Med is because my immediate family had already booked a half term break there and we all thought it would be nice if i was there too. Remarkably and surprisingly it was! We stayed at an all-inclusive resort in apartment style accommodation by the beach. The hardest thing i had dealing with was having to eat ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Louis Kerkyra Golf Corfu
Das Hotel ist sehr sauber und liegt in wunderbarer Lage. Die Zimmer haben eine gute Größe und werden von den Zimmermädchen gut gepflegt. Wenn Sie nicht am Pool liegen wollen, es gibt noch mehr Bereiche mit ausreichend Sonnenliegen. Das Essen war reichhaltig und auf dem gleichen Niveau wie bei den anderen All-Inclusive 4-Sterne-Resort, in den wir schon waren. Das Unterhaltungsprogramm war enttäuschend. Vor allem hat mich gestört, dass abends nur eine Bar aufhatte. Und die war nicht nur überfüllt, sondern wenn man da saß, musste man auch erst die Minidisko und dann das laienhafte Unterhaltungsprogramm und die herumspringenden Kinder über sich ergehen lassen. Man konnte nirgends hingehen und nach dem Essen in Ruhe etwas trinken und für einen Nichtraucher fand ich es auch sehr unangenehm, in einem verrauchten Raum zu sitzen. An der Bar waren nur zwei gestresste Barkeeper und man musste oft Schlange stehen, um etwas zu bekommen. Ich kann dieses Hotel aber Familien mit Kindern empfehlen, da die Minigolfanlage für Kinder einen guten Eindruck machte. Wenn Sie aber ein Pärchen sind, dass ein wenig Ruhe im Urlaub sucht, dann ist dieses Hotel nichts für sie.
The hotel was very clean and in a beautiful setting. The rooms are of a good size and well kept by the chambermaids. If you dont want to lie round the pool there are extensive grounds with plenty of sunbeds. Food was plentiful and to the same standard as other 4 star all inclusive resorts we have stayed at. Entertainment was very poor. My main gripe was that there was only one bar in the evening. Not only was it crowded but It meant that you had to sit through the mini disco followed by the amatuer entertainment and rampaging children running around the room until midnight. There was nowhere you could go and have a quiet drink after dinner and as a non smoker I found it unpleasent and uncomfortable to sit in a smokey room. The bar had only two overworked barmen serving and you often had to queue for quite a while. Overall I would recommend this hotel for families as the mini club facility for children looked very good. However if you are a couple looking for a quiet relaxing holiday this is not the hotel for you.
From the start we were greeted by George the Reception Manager and he was so helpful,polite and caring and c/service was just the best.
We visited this hotel at the end of October 2005, being half-term the hotel was very noisy with children, but I cannot assume it is like this all the time.
Quite disappointing. No golden sandy beaches, rather lots of pebbles and black mud and seaweeds. The water was dirty.
Rooms quite dusty and kept getting dustier everyday.
The food is definitely 2 star quality.
Employees were not particularly nice, just doing a job and can't wait to finish.
Entertainment for children was very good, which made it a little more bearble.
What was bothersome for many, not just I, was the grass mower coming as early as 6:30pm with his little vehicle working between bathers and sending all sorts of fumes from his little machine. Sort of hinting that we should pack up and go.
Was not totally a waste but would not reccommend and would not go there again.
We stayed at the kerkyra golf last may 2005, its the second time we have stayed there and would definetly go back again. The food was excellent staff very nice, great with my son who wasn't quite two at the time, rooms were clean,large and the view from the balcony was amazing. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the evening entertainment, pretty poor but the football was on when we were there so it wasn't to bad, they have got a masive screen in the conference room. Great for kids, own pool and play area, slide and swings with supervision through the day plenty of things to do for all the family during the day, i.e beach vollyball, tenis, table tennis, seven-aside football, darts, bowls all free of charge. To sum this hotel up in one word "Excellent."
The hotel and it's facilities were really good.However,as we went at the beginning of the season (09/05/05-23/05/05) not everything was available or complete.The beach bar didn't open until the second week nor was the outside stage area.The mini club had it's finishing touches in the second week eg the safety rules,life saving ring and umbrella's with the sun loungers.You can't help but think that when you pay alot of money to stay at a 4* hotel you expect all these little details to be complete before you arrive.When we arrived, the hotel had been open since April, so why these things hadn't been done then i don't know.The entertainment was very poor and almost non existant.For the kids there's a 30min disco everynight which is the same songs every time.Ernea who ran the kids club worked really hard and was a joy to know.Our daughter really enjoyed playing with her and she really made the holiday for us. But as for the animation team programme of volleyball, aqua fit etc we didn't see any of that. So for us there wasn't enough to keep you entertained for 2 weeks,especially in the evenings.Due to the hotels location, there is nowhere for you to wander to in the evenings. You have to get a taxi or catch the bus into Corfu Town or a nearby resort.We did catch the buses quite alot and they are less than 1 euro to Dassia,Gouvia and Corfu Town.There is also a green bus stop outside the hotel which takes you to other resorts further away like Palaokastritsa,Kassiopi and Sidari. It's alot cheaper catching these than doing a trip through your rep.
We stayed here for a week in July 2004 on an AI basis.
We stayed AI for a fortnight at the Kerkyra Golf in May/June 2004 with our 2 daughters 9 & 15
The rooms were very clean and tidy (rooms were cleaned daily) all areas of the hotel was exceptionally clean and most of the staff were very friendly, especially bar staff.
entertainment was geared around the kids but we all had great fun as the animation team were fantastic, especially Valerio,Michelle & Ramon.
Food was top class, good variety and very well cooked ( i normally put salt & pepper on everything but food so tasty didn't have to)
lovely well kept gardens and pool.
All in all i would definately recommend this hotel
and would certainly go back.
Stayed here in May 2004. Although the weather let us down it was still a good experience. food was abundant and well presented and of a good quality. service was very good and the hotel complex clean and tidy. entertainment was provided each evening with the team rehearsing after each show into the small hours to provide ongoing shows. Pictures available of the hotel available on the web give a reliable portrait of the hotel. the beach is very narrow and you should not expect rich golden sand. However it was clean and free of litter. a taxi to corfu town is about E8.00 each way with bus fares about 60 cents. the bus stops right outside the hotel entrance next to the ten pin bowling alley.The hotel provides a reasonable entertainments program for all ages.Rooms were very pleasent and made up on a daily basis. Not the cheapest of hotels but represented good value for money. This hotel was introduced to us by my sister in law who has had serveral holidays here. All in all, the quality of service and food was above average and while we would consider a return visit with confidence, our views on the hotel are based on our visit at that time and should not be taken as a guaranteed review of the hotel (covering myself). We enjoyed our stay and would expect anyone going there to feel the same.
