Beautiful place and hotel great. The English/Greek team were very helpful. We had room 202 on floor 3, worth the 54 steps climb up. Fantastic view from private balcony. Rooms cleaned very well every day and sheets and towels changed very regularly. Beds good but we requested mattress toppers which made them more comfortable. Resort busy in day but quieter at night so peaceful sleeps with virtually no traffic passing. Would suggest car hire to see more of island. Only minor dislike was smoking in the restaurant which wasn't just under outside canopy but allowed first row inside restaurant, not pleasant esp at breakfast which offered a very good continental choice. We only ate here twice in evening because of this, didn't seem a problem in other tavernas. Otherwise could not fault and a lovely relaxed time.

I had heard about the hotel previously so was looking forward to returning to Paleo. I wasn't disappointed, staff and location lovely. The only down side was very dark bathroom and very small balcony. Had to juggle the furniture to get out there. Wonderful location to get to the harbour, the monastery and boat trips. The Corfu town bus stop was just outside, and the buses were on time. Would love to go back in September

Good for the views and the beach

I booked this hotel through Monarch due to it's proximity to the beaches and the view of the bay. We did not receive the second or third floor rooms as requested despite booking and requesting them a year in advance. When i emailed the hotel a week prior to our arrival, the hotel claimed they would not know what rooms would be available until the day of our arrival which i found strange, and there was a wedding party there during our stay which had made a block booking runing our chances of the higher floor rooms. Our experince in reality was that rooms were available as a customer apeared out of the blue on our check in and was allocated a room. As for the wedding party they must have been by and large invisible and we saw very few people on the second floor terrace. Our first floor room was nice and all rooms are of the same standard,other than the second floor rooms have access to a wonderful shared terrace with loungers and parasols., the reason we requested them(Rooms on our first floor have only a tiny balcony). It appears that from my experience ,to get one of the second/third floor rooms you would be advised to book direct with the hotel. If the hotel want to charge more for these rooms why dont they advertise them as superior and let customers book them than what appears to be what they are actually doing is holding them back to charge a higher rate to the walk up customer. The room was nice as i said with a softer mattress than most but my bed had been previously broken and repaired with the wood frame braced with metal ,consequently it squeaked and was rather noisy. The public facade of the hotel was smart, you enter from street level straight into a bar/dining area . There is also a bakery attached which sold nice pastries and sandwiches which you could eat at the hotels tables with a drink from the hotel bar. We booked b&b and cannot comment on the food other than breakfast which was the usual continental fayre but well organised and presented. The hotel also seemed a bit nit picky with rules about guests not using kettles in their rooms , do not eat in the room, in other words,all the usual things encouraging you to spend your money at the hotel. The real problem of this hotel is that at night there are no bars other than the hotel bar open. The beach area of Paleo receives coach loads of visitors everyday and the restaurants/tavernas are booming, at night its a different story the area is practically dead. It was a credit to the apollon that on two of our 4 night stay the hotel had quality entertainment on. Thats the problem with the resort of Paleo as a whole that it is a very hilly resort with lots of bars and tavernas situated on the slopes and hills and my advice is to rent a car or endure some very tiring walks in the heat . If securing a good spot on the beach is a priority for you go for this hotel its by far the best option, but as i said earlier get a car and drive up the hill and see the bars and restaurants that are up to 2km away from the hotel. Talking of bars the hotel's management own/run the grotta bar which is highly rated, but over an hours uphill walk from the hotel. That been the case, why not put a shuttle service on then for the guests than tell them about the bus you can catch outside the hotel which stops running in the evening when we would like to have gone?! The hotel is smart and clean and staff were friendly but in my opinion there are far better places to stay logistically unless those beaches are the priority. If the management were hoping for a better review from me they should not assume that customers have fallen off a log with lame excuses over room allocation
