Delighted with our stay at the Apollon for 10 days in early June '15. Hotel is right by the sea, literally across the road. Excellent hotel in Paleo, a lovely, picturesque area. Rooms are extremely clean, spacious and those in the main building have a wonderful view over the bay. The management are English speaking and have ensured that all the little extras have been thought of, so rooms have good facilities. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and soon got to know their guests. The best views are from rooms in the main building on floors 2 or 3 (book more than 3 months in advance). The 2nd floor has a wonderful, large communal terrace with your own space outside your room; the 3rd floor have individual balconies. The first floor balconies are tiny with some restricted viewing. The Annex is 60m up the side road and those room have a good view toward another beach. We enjoyed half-board, breakfast plentiful and a good range; very tasty 3 course evening meal which varied according to day of week with 3 choices per course (it could be bought as an extra for 13 euros). Very good value. Fabulous bakery 'next door' served sandwiched, cakes, etc. until 4pm. Within 100m of the Apollon are 6 other restaurants, so lots of choice if you want it. A pleasant 5 min walk takes you round to the harbour in the next bay from where there's a choice of boat trips (and more tavernas); go on the 'Yellow Submarine', it's well worth it. 15 min walk the other way (up the hill) is a monastery, well worth the visit, and includes a café. The 2 beaches had large patches of sand and the water's edge is course sand/shingle, they shelve quite quickly but seemed to be enjoyed by everyone! For places further afield the local bus (very reliable on time) starts from beside the Apollon, 2.30euros single to/fro Corfu Town; about 7 buses per day, 40 mins approx. We hired a car for a few days via the hotel (good quality & very good value) and we enjoyed the other parts of Corfu but felt that Paleo was the most pictureque! The Greek people were all very relaxed, we had no sense of concern about the economy, etc, Although we don't usually do trips we went to Albania for the day, amazing and so interesting/informative. The country has moved on so much in 25 yrs, what a change for the better.

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
