I have just got back from this resort and it has me with mix comments, if you're thinking of going here or have already booked please read this as it may help. I have broke it down into sections to help Apartment - for us (wife, daughter) the apartment was good. It was VERY clean and you could see the maids kept on top of everything. If your room has bunk beds please check the top rail and ladder before letting your children use them as they do come loose. The only negative I have was the amount of Ants we had in the bathroom. Food - The food they cooked was nice but VERY repetitive, if you don't mind eating the same food everyday then all is good. The resort has 2 restaurants, the main one and one you have to book called the wave'. I would recommend booking the wave restaurant every night for around 7 to get a good table. It's a buffet which is part of your all inclusive but it's a calmer atmosphere with a lovely view. You have to book it the day before as it gets fully booked quick. Drinks - Crap, my daughter doesn't have vizzy drinks so all she had the choice of was apple juice, orange cordial or water. We had to buy drinks for her at the mini market, this didn't bother us as much but If you're on a budget take note. As for Adults the all inclusive is poor, make sure you read what's included before you go as it's VERY limited. Entertaining - it was ok, if you have young kids they will enjoy the kids disco which is every night before the main entertainment. Make sure you get to the sky bar before 8 or you will be struggling to get a table. The show finishes at 11 so I would recommend taking an iPad with movies on it for you and your little ones. Wave Pool - the wave pool was great, the times we weren't in the water park we spent here. For little kids you might want to get them some waters shoes as it's a little abrasive as you go in. Water park - this was awesome, all the slides were open and manned by life guards. I would of liked more of the food stalls to have been open so we could get away from the repetitive all inclusive food but apart from that the park, the staff and food IN the park gets 5 stars from me. The resort offer free coach into Corfu town which I highly recommend, we eat out and the price was reasonable but look around as some restaurants were expensive. Expect to be approached by every restaurant waiter when walking through town. The resort mini market was good and cheap so get some bits here instead of Corfu town. I hated the fact the resort sold laser lights to kids so we spent a week with around 50 kids shining lasers in people's faces, it got to a point I told a kid I would knock his F'ing head off if he didn't take his laser light out of my face (it worked). Overall - don't expect 5 stars if you have already booked, if you haven't don't book this resort. Look around and travel to the water park instead. Enjoy!

€25 to get in and well worth it. There w ere lots of slides, lazy river and a large wave pool. Plenty of kids areas and kids slides too (over 4's only). You can get a 2 day pass for €30 which we did. Since it was the start of season it was really quite and we didn't queue for anything...my he down side was the water was freezing! In a couple of months it will be perfect though I suspect you will queue to get in! It's worth a day out there though.

Our family and 3 friends came to stay in this so called hotel from the 15th to the 22nd of May through first choice and what a silly decision, first off the top apartment where we were staying the sofa beds slats had fell out and when pointed out to the maids/ cleaners they just wrapped a thermal blanket up and stuffed it under the mattress which my two young girls had to sleep, then in same apartment the stair bannister was coming apart from where the two 9 yr olds were sleeping upstairs and also there was drawers hanging off their hinges, so now I will share my story about the down stairs apartment, first off if you don't like open planned showers this one isn't for you as their is one straight in front of the front door with no curtain! Also their is a pile of wood made out to be a bed with all screws and parts falling apart when led on, there is also some sort of drainage stench that smells like a dead rodent living inside there oh I also forgot to mention in both top and bottom apartments there was only a partitioned wall that separates the bedrooms so it's no good for privacy, and for the food and evening entertainment well you can tell what I will be saying about that, rubbish , rubbish and more rubbish, me and my family got pestered all the time by what seemed to be the manager to keep off the tables with more than 4 chairs as he said he needed them for other guests at dinner time although we had 9 people in our group! The only good thing about it was leaving to go to the nearest beach or town just to forget about it. Please think twice about waisting your time and money, there is other stuff I have not mentioned as it will take all day to write down, the other reviews on here is very spot on about the food and water park , I realy don't no why there is any good reviews at all or why you would want to write one.

Travelled here on the 8th of may for a week with hubby and three kids also our friends and their three kids , first few days only 4 slides were open we had been told it would be half open , our children and many others sliced their feet at the wave pool really dangerous surface had to purchase aqua shoes , the food was the worst I have ever experienced on an all inclusive holiday it was stone cold the same stuff nearly every day fatty pork or German sausage the kids so called station was a disgrace mini hot dogs swimming in grease or cold pizza that was rock hard we had to have days out to eat properly which isn't easy at this hotel as it is very secluded you need to take a taxi to town at £20 euros or the bus in the morning , now on to the entertainment if you can call it that , it consisted of 30 minutes kids songs played on a CD player then an hours karaoke or bingo this is not acceptable I've seen better entertainment at a caravan park , we told the onsite rep about bad food and lack of entertainment to which she shrugged her shoulders and said yeah I've heard that for a while now , even the poolside snacks were a disgrace stale bread with cheese and ham filling if you don't like cheese or ham tough , now onto the apartment we had a one bedroom don't get me wrong the adults room upstairs was adequate but the camp bed that was rusty and falling apart that my 14 year old daughter had to sleep on was unacceptable as was the so called sofa bed that my boys had to sleep on they would have found more comfort on the floor , if our friends hadn't been there we would have been climbing walls with boredom in the evenings this hotel is not up to the standard we have been used to with first choice holidays and I don't expect to pay a lot of money for an all inclusive package to then have to spend 800 euros on meals out and travel to and from hotel will make me think twice about booking with first choice again I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone
