Travel Blogs from Moraitika
We toured the streets of Corfu Town and then wandered for a few hours more, finally settling in for a lunch of Gyros, ice-cold Mythos and good conversation.
After lunch we walked through the Open Air Market we we saw fresh produce and merchandise for sale by local merchants. The seafood and meat market wasn't open but the lingering scent told us that we just missed it. ...
... to make a comeback, and with Dad on his tail, called for bad light and the game to be stopped.
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 ...
Day 3 in Corfu and its great just to be able to sleep in. This morning I go up for breakfast at 9 with every intention of going back to bed directly after. So much for that. Of the 6 people (of 51) that actually made it to breakfast, I was surprised I was one of them. Talking to Shannon at breaky, I decided instead of going back to bed, I would join her on the bus into town and get some more flu drugs and some fruit.
We missed the bus and instead of waiting an ...
... have a couple with the new groups.
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Messonghi Beach Resort Moraitika
Great 2 weeks but a bad hotel
I just returned from Greece today the 28th of June.
The travel agent assured me of a high standard hotel.
The food was like that of the old school canteen, the rooms were dirty, no tv, air con, or fridge.
I did enjoy the pool but the beach was a let down.
The entertainment was likened to a 2 week eurovision sog contest hell. 3 tv rooms but none of them sky, NOT WHAT THE BROCHURE SAYS
If you are booked here, go to the travel agent and change NOW
Worst week of our lives
Have just returned from this hotel and wonder if we stayed at the same place as others who have reviewed it. The hotel rooms (we had 2) were dirty, I had to go out and buy bleach and disinfectant, the toilet was so unhealthy looking, our room had a rather large beetle population, not very pleasant. The food was of a very poor standard, meal times were awful, everyone pushing and shoving, having to fight for a table, crockery was always running out. We have never experienced anything like it. The water sports never seemed to have anyone in charge, the beach seemed dirty. I can sum the whole place up in one word - dreadful
Loved messonghi beach corfu
stayed for a week in july 2003had a great time lots to do especially for kids as we have a 6 year old.food wasnt great but the complex and pools made up for that.moritkia village was great for gift shopping and tavernas for beer for adults with large icecreams for kids.messonghi village approx 500 metres on right hand side KIDS WORLD a definate must if you have kids 3 euros for kids gets them unlimited fun and a drink while mum and dads relak and have a drink .

Ideal for Families
I visited this resort in August 2002 with my family. This in my opinion is ideal for families, lots to do activities arranged on site and a kids club which is well organised.The complex itself is very clean and the internet cafe on site is useful should you need it. The food is very good a buffet style arrangement with a varied choice of food, my daughter who was 11 at the time loved it. The room we had was very clean, well decorated and quite spacious. The beach is ideal and a short walk along it brings you to a number of bars that have greek dancing and entertainment on an evening, also you can walk to the beach and get a boat trip very easily. The evening entertainment is quite varied. we enjoyed this place so much that I have booked another holiday for July 2004
I have been going to the hotel since 1992, first with friends, then with my partner and now with my family. Each visit (now 7) the hotel and facilities have improved. Our last visit was August 2003. Messonghi and Moraitika provide an ideal location for a holiday. Lots of lovely restaurants, The Roase Garden being excellent, plenty of small friendly bars with music and one or two discos. The beach on this side of the island is sand and shale with a shallow slope inot the sea which is calm making it ideal for children. Cleanliness at the hotel is very good, rooms basic but adequate for your needs, pools and facilites extensive. Many bars, cafes etc.. on site. Children's entertainment very good, water sports etc etc. The locals are friendly and ever willing to help. A+++++
The resort is huge and located at the border of the city of Moraitika.
was there july 2003 ,the beach hotel catered more for the germans and other europeans rather than british holiday makers, the food was nice but was the same 8 main meals buffet style every night , same at breakfast time , the adult entertainment was rubbish, the drink was about average price wise ,best going into town a 10 minute walk , visit the rose garden for an excellent meal, we where agroup of 5 adults , looking for a relaxing holiday and we really liked the place ,and would recommend it , we have some photos, the beach is nice although a lot of shingle and seaweed in places, dont go in july as the temp soared to 100 in the shade ,unbearable in the noon , the grounds are lovely ,feel free to email me for any info related, that you may wish if you are going there.
I stayed in Messonghi Beach Hotel in July 2001 and in July 2002. I will go to this hotel also in July 2003. Because it is really really good for holidays. The weather is always warm. The food is perfect (mostly continental). Staff is very helpful and friendly. There is some fun for all day - aerobics, greek lessons, dance lessons, many sports (voleyball, football, table tenis, tenis...). In the evenings there is also a special programme (greek night, beach party, bingo, disco...). There are some good bars in the hotel. There is also very good fish restaurant. Children can go to the playground, there are kids discos, sunday party with Mickey Mouse and many others.Messonghi Beach is really good choice for you.Jana Simkova from Pribram, Czech Republic
I took my family to Messonghi Beach Hotel in August 2000 for a 2 week holiday. On first impressions the complex is vast and very welcoming. The people are on the hole very friendly and keen to help. I was rather disappointed at the first room we were offered as there were no bunk beds for my two daughters both under 10 years of age, and no dounle be, jsut 4 single beds. I did complain immediately and I was moved to a family room with double bed and bunk beds. The rooms are basis, but clean. The toilet system in Corfu is antiquated and takes a while to get used to. Once we had settled into our room we explored the complex, which is beatiful. Set in green gardens and flowers. There are numerous pools, but we headed straight for the beech. Just one word, TERRIFIC. No current, not deep ideal for children. Great for snorkling and playing with a bucket and spade. My daughter even caught a sea horse in her bucket. The water is very warm and the weather hot. Evenings are varied with the entertainment team working hard. The food is also varied and plentiful. Breakfast are continental but there are some good english cafes close by with great bacon and eggs. All in all this destination is fine for families looking for rest and relaxation. There are a number of clubs a short walk away. I have booked to return this August and I am really looking forward to it.
