My boyfriend and I had a great time at this hotel! We loved the food, the activities, the drinks, the entertainment and everything in between. Our highlights were the Zorbas night, the beach band party, the darts and ping pong and the waffle and crepe stand on the beach! As per all the other reviews, the hotel is on a hill, but this wasn't a problem for us. We would, however, say the only negative was the bed. It was quite uncomfortable and hard. I have a back problem so I asked for some extra pillows for the room, but had to ask twice. Once we had these it was a little better, but it was the only down point of our whole experience. We would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone planning a visit to Corfu!

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel from a recommendation from a family member. We arrived in the middle of the night and had a lift up to our room. The resort is on a hill - not a problem
for us, but potentially for other travellers. You can call for a shuttle at all times though! The breakfast/lunch/dinner buffet hall had a great selection for all meals. Some of the food was a little cold by the time you got round to eating as the air con was quite high in the hall and the food was only on boiling water (as far as we could tell), it all tasted good though! We enjoyed our free Al A Carte meal and all bars around the resort. We especially loved the waffle and crepe stand on the beach at 3.30 every day! The Italian restaurant on the beach was also a highlight with pasta made to serve and pizzas. All of the reps were enthusiastic and wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time. At no point were they intrusive of the experience if you wanted to just sit and relax and not participate. We really enjoyed a relaxing break where you could do nothing or have a busy holiday with lots of activity. The evening entertainment was great to watch and listen to either in the crowd or on the balcony of the main building. We would 100% recommend the evening activities such as the Zorba s night on a friday and the beach party on the Thursday night whilst we were there!
Cons: I think the only thing we had a problem with was the bed. I have a back problem and had to ask (twice) for extra pillows. All sorted but not ideal.
Pros: Everyone was friendly, lots of activity going on, food selection good and beautiful setting.
Location: We travelled to Corfu Town which was a great day out. Lots of water sports centres along the coast, just a bus ride away. We tried Jet Skiing!
Très bon séjour, personnel très sympathique
We really enjoyed our two weeks at Aelos Beach. It was our 4th year in a row doing All Inclusive and the hotel compared most favourably. The food quality and choice was excellent (with plenty of themed nights; the a la carte meal portions were just right as well) and the staff were super friendly and most helpful. The only bugbears as such were more of the idiosyncratic type and are as follows (and in no way detracted from the experience): - The swimming pool, although lovely, is not large enough for the number of guests who wish to use it and/or the sunbeds instead of the dedicated stretch of beach (also great). I am presuming there are no plans to install another? The area around the children’s playground (which looked a bit tired) might be a possibility? We were there in late August and I would imagine the situation with the sunbeds would be far worse earlier in the season. I also have to state that I witnessed the ultimate means of reserving a sun bed: the use of a toilet roll (I kid you not). - Having to pay for the safe - Having to pay for bottled water - The animation team were incredibly helpful as well as being friendly and dynamic (I will single out Gael for praise here) but, due to many of them being French, they"appeared" to favour the French guests, although I accept that their English may have not been strong across the board. I speak French but found it a bit difficult sometimes to break the ice - Ah yes, the mosquitos. I am assuming this is an inherent feature of such a green island (compared to, say, Crete) but I did notice a lot around the children’s pool which does not seem to be pumped? For days out, be prepared for the theoretical bus service (nothing to do with the hotel, of course). Having gone away in part to recover from commuting on the London Underground I was not prepared for the scrum getting on the return bus journey from Corfu (Kerkyra) Town! On a more personal note, I hung an old favourite T shirt of mine (20+ years) on a beach umbrella. Went back having forgotten it but by the time I had returned to the beach, it had gone and of course noone had handed it in anywhere. Human nature I guess, and of course, my fault, noone else's!
Booked a week here mid Sept for our first holiday without the kids for 25 years. And it came very close to being perfect. Out of high season it seems to be very popular with couples. The large pool was beautiful and never busy. But it was cold. Unusual as it does get all the sun all day. We easily got sunbeds, but would probably have struggled in peak season. The pool bar has all the drinks of the main bar and snacks till 5pm. But, be very careful of the flights of steps up to it. We saw one young man slip coming down and he did some serious damage to himself!! Infact, we did see a few people slip on the many steps around the hotel. No handrails being the culprit. And there are lots and lots of steps. All steep, all stone! And hills. Lots and lots of hills! Do not even attempt to visit this resort if you are nothing less than fit. Our room was in the main building and had the most stunning view. The aircon and fan a welcome retreat away from the heat. Although we did find the room very dark during the evening. Great mood lighting, not putting on make-up lighting. Maids kept out room spotless and fresh towels everyday. The food.....STUNNING! It might not be the biggest all inclusive we have been to, but it was the best!! Food hot, greek flair running though the meals. Bright and airy dining room. Which did get busy, but never crowded. Some reviews hint at it being like a canteen etc. Well, it is all inclusive and it does cater for the masses. So what do they really expect!!! It does cater for the masses, but it does it well and it is to be commended. The Taverna on the beach is great for lunch also the Greek night. Be prepared for plenty of audience participation. You WILL be made to join in!! But its all really good fun and after a few glasses of wine, you will not care that you are being made to Zorba dance your way across the floor (the men) or belly dance like you're in a black and white movie (the women) The A' la carte dinner is also at the taverna, Included once during your stay. It is a very nice evening and a chance to dress up abit and be romantic. The food it very good, but portions are on the small side. Never the less, not to be missed. The cocktails are good, I had a few cocktail 'heads' the day after the night before. The wine not so much. The beer ok. Shop on the main road and 2 little shops in the hotel lobby. One sells gorgeous kaftans and jewellery. And really reasonable too. The local bus into Corfu......SARDINE TIN! Springs to mind. But an experience not to be missed. A walk up the the Archellion Palace is nice. But it is up some pretty brutal hills and over 70 steps. Our rep said breezily 'Oh, its a gentle stroll of about 20 mins' Reality was 2 hrs of sheer torture, in the heat. Only stopping to throw up my breakfast in a bush due to the stress of the exercise on my poor all-inclusived out bod! Speedboat hire on the beach reasonable. 40euros for an hour. 20 euros on fuel. Gave my speed mad husband chance to zip about the coast of Corfu like a lunatic, while I clung on and hoped no sharks were in the vacinity incase of a sudden capsize. The staff were polite and super efficient. Reviewers have remarked that they were unfriendly. We certainly did'nt find that. They might not be grinning like cheshire cats,, but they are buzzing about all the time and working their socks off looking after guests. The hotel has a couple of stray dogs and several stray cats that seem to have decided to move in. And these were happy wandering around the resort and stopping for strokes and illicit treats from the guests. Both the dogs and moggies were super friendly. Infact, the only real downside to the hotel, were the beds. They are just concrete slabs with sheets on!! And we took a mattress topper with us! Resulting in very little sleep over the week. Which did put abit of a dampner on our time there. We would go back there in a second if the beds were changed. That is really the only negative we can say about this little corner of Corfu paradise.
I have written many reviews, and I always give a genuine review. As per other reviews, and included in the hotel details, there are steep ramps, and steps from each section of the hotel. If we start at the beach, it is a brilliant setting. It has two jetties, with sunbeds upon, and sunbeds along the sandy beach. The views from the jetty if you have the first beds, is unbelievable. The beach rest is used at lunchtimes, and you have freshly cooked pizzas, salads, all help yourself, and there is a chef who cooks fresh pasta meals(a choice of 12 meals. wonderful !!!!! The beach bar is perfect, with Violetta and Irini giving great service all day. At night-time, this rest, changes to the Ala carte rest. You are allowed one meal free at this rest. where you have a beautiful view alongside the beach, great food, and drink. Again the staff are exceptional!!9 Vangelis looked after us a treat!! You then climb up the steps to the next level. We were in a seaview bungalow room.It was a lovely room with great seaviws from the balcony. They could do with better lighting in the room. On this level, there is the main reception(again excellent staff)and the main bar area. The drinks were perfect. It has an incredible balcony overlooking the sea and mainland Greece. Down the stairs you come to the main rest. It is large, I would not say over noisy, for an all inclusive rest.the food was excellent, plenty of choice, and the drinks you help yourself to wine/beer/soft drinks etc,. outside of the rest, there is another open bar area, where they have the main entertainment. it is based around a swimming pool. The entertainment team were always going out of their way to make sure you had a good time. Alex and his sister were extremely friendly and efficient!! The entertainment was brilliant. Some of the best shows, and groups we have seen in hotels.The two greek nights were great, and they got you dancing, even the men had to carry tables in their mouths whilst the top of the table was alight !!! There was one of the best nights we have ever had at a hotel, it was the BEACH PARTY. It was actually on the beach. The group were fantastic, they never stopped for two & half hours, where everyone was dancing and singing. The entertainment team really pulled the stops out that night. The free bar was flowing, what a night!! You can also go up to another level to the infinity pool/bar. Each time you climb up to the levels, yes it kills you, but you have great views when you get there. This bar/pool is NO different. BUT!! we climbed from the beach to the infinity pool bar for a late drink, which is no mean feat, especially for two pensioners, to be told that after 7pm, you have to buy your drinks at that bar. Unfortunately we had NO money, so down the steps again to the other bar for a drink, it was a trick to hide the lilo at this bar!! So overall, yes it is very steep when you walk from one level to the other, but the views are worth it. The staff are excellent from the beach to the rest. reception, and entertainment team. Mr ANDREOS the Manager keeps a tight ship, with his staff. Well Done!
-Average food +Nice pool and beach. Short distance from airport
Sep. 2018 (12) Männerurlaub 53-77 Jahre. Zu uns überall extrem freundliches Personal. Wir sind aber auch keine"Ballermann" Truppe . Riesiges Essen/Frühstückauswahl am Büffet. Es findet jeder bestimmt etwas für seinen Geschmack. Für mich als Italiener hätte die Pasta etwas mehr "al Dente" sein können. ist aber bei diesen Mengen schwierig . Am Sonntag beim Frühstück " Stau" vor dem Speisesaal Eingang. Toller, großer Pool. Strand zweckmäßig, steinig. Mein Zimmer: 3-4 Sterne aber sauber. Von den oberen Zimmern am Pool Traumblick zum Meer und Sonnenaufgang. Hotelanlage gepflegt. Klimaanlage geht beim verlassen (Karte raus) des Zimmers aus. Man sollte sich eine zweite Zimmerkarte besorgen. Tolle Hotelterrasse. Zum Abend, bis auf ganz wenige Ausnahmen, passende, gepflegte Kleidung von den Gästen, viele Damen sogar sehr "sommerlich" gekleidet. Im Speisesaal ist es etwas (zu) laut abends. Wege zu den einzelnen Wohneineinheiten sind steil und viele Treppen vorhanden. Für Leute die nicht ganz gut zu Fuß sind, kann es beschwerlich werden. Wer Katzen mag, wird morgens auf dem Weg zum Frühstück freundlich begrüßt.
Très bien hors mis les boissons
Top. Superbe vue, piscine immense, belle plage. Par contre il faut être sportif car ça grimpe sec entre la plage et sa chambre.
On mange plutôt bien.
-La Comida ...... +Las instalaciones y la ubicación El personal ...especialmente Victoria Super amables
We travelled as a family of 4, in mid September for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Having travelled with Jet2 for the first time, we would definitely recommend them as a travel agent as they were very efficient and helpful and we encountered no problems, plus there was more leg room on the flight than we can ever remember having. The highlight of our holiday was definitely the setting! We stayed in the main building which provided beautiful views of the sea, especially when we woke early and managed to catch the sunrise from our balcony. The rooms are good - very clean (the maid visited everyday, except Sunday when instead, they just replaced the towels) and the room was always quiet. The TV, although not used a lot, had a few English channels including the news, a kids and a cinema channel. The air con and fan worked well and were definitely appreciated after a long day in the sun. The room also came with metal shutters on the balcony and these kept the light out for the mornings that we wanted a lie in- a kettle was also provided, with tea bags in the room and refills in the lobby. The only suggestion would be that the lighting is improved as the room was quite dark and would therefore benefit from extra lighting or a main light being fitted. We chose to spend our days on the beach, and despite there being a few criticisms about this, we loved it! We had no trouble finding a sunbed, although we are aware it wasn't peak season, and were even able to grab a sunbed on the decking area on a few days. This was positioned out over the sea and provided sun for the entire day. The sea itself was amazing, very clear which provided great opportunities for snorkeling. When down on the beach, we ate lunch at the Italian bar which we enjoyed. We were always able to get a seat straight away and never waited long for our food. All of the food is made fresh- a choice of about 10 pasta dishes which were made to order or a choice of pizzas and salad. Next to the beach is a small supermarket, which was reasonably cheap so a good place to buy inflatables or bottles of water ( only 1 bottle of water was provided on arrival, anymore had to be paid for). Although there was a buffet restaurant and other facilities, we cannot really comment on them as we chose to eat out in the evening. Despite tourist spots such as Benitses being within walking distance, we wouldn't recommend doing this as there aren't many pavements which made it quite dangerous to get to. Instead we got a taxi which was ordered by the reception and were easy to find when we wanted to return. It was 10 euros to Benitses when we travelled. If you fancy a change from the All Inclusive we would definitely recommend visiting Restaurant Oraies Benitses, as it has a large menu of both Greek and English dishes and the hosts are very welcoming. The food was beautiful both times we visited! We also ventured out to the left of the hotel and found a causeway across the sea which was a great viewing spot for the planes, as it was only 500m away from the runway, maximum, so was very impressive! As well as this, we travelled to Corfu town by bus which stops just outside of the hotel and tickets can be bought in the hotel or once you are on ( they are slightly more expensive this way). This hotel is on an incline, and therefore would not be suitable if you have mobility issues. However, we had no issues with this and the views would no doubt be compromised if this was changed. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would say it is a good 4 star hotel.
-Πιστεύω ότι θα έπρεπε να έχετε δώσει λίγο περισσότερο βάρος στην παραλία.. +Το πρωινό είναι τέλειο όσο για το προσωπικό συγχαρητήρια σε όλους..
מלון עממי הכל כלול. בפיזור רב על פני שטח גדול לכן אם נמצאים המשפחה והחדר בפסיקה קצת מסורבל הרבה עליות ומורדות לא נגיש כלל . חוף ים נהדר. צוות מעולה מבחר מזון כך שכל אחד מוצא מה לאכול . למעט שומרי כשרות. תחנת אוטובוס צמודה למלון כך שמי שרוצה נסיעה של 30 דקות לעיר העתיקה זמין כל שעה שעה 7 בבוקר עד 11 בלילה.
Spent 3 days here for a birthday celebration with family, great location , room was lovely with wonderful views of the sea , the highlight was having a meal all 10 of us on the jetty although quite pricey it was well worth it , the food was excellent , the chef came and met us before he started our 7 courses , and we were made to feel like royalty from our waiter yiannis and his team , the setting looking out onto the Ionian Sea was perfect would recommend to friends
Είναι όλα καταπληκτικά ,ένας επίγειος παράδεισος!
Το προσωπικό είναι ευγενεστατο και πάντα με το χαμόγελο.
Όσο για το φαγητό, βρίσκεις ότι τραβάει η ψυχή σου.
Σίγουρα θα ξαναπηγαινα.
This is a very nice hotel,but there are a few issues, we stayed in bungalow set on the hillside the views from our terrace were amazing.The bungalow was spotless but in need of a bit of TLC the room comprised of a bathroom with a bath with shower over,there is also a wet room shower in there as well,towels changed daily and the usual shower gels etc. There is a fridge in the room and you are given a large bottle of water to start off if you need extra you have to buy this from the supermarket.There is also a safe which you have to pay for. Facilities include a very large infinity pool as well as a children's pool there are several eating places and bars around the resort all of which were excellent. I would add that the staff from reception the bars and the restaurants to the cleaners, were amazing they were very helpful friendly and couldn't do enough for you !!! The management should be really proud of their team. There are a couple of things people should be aware of the resort is set on a hillside and facilities are set all over, so it can be quite a hike from different parts of the hotel we are active walkers and even we struggled on occasions especially in the heat.I have to admit that I really didn't like the beach it is quite small they can only fit 2 rows of chairs on it and its very rocky so as usual if your not down early for a lounger there is not much room to sit on sand.That said I would still recommend this hotel as worth a visit,
The private beach was relaxing. Plenty of food options. We were able to enjoy an excursion to Albania which was also nice.
We have just returned from a lovely week 7th to 14th September, in Corfu staying at the Aeolos Beach Hotel, I don't do star rating as I can only tell you how our stay was. We arrived and checked in at just about 11.00 local time the receptionist were very helpful and said our room (39) was ready and arranged t get our luggage taken down. The room was lovely with a stunning view out over the sea. We took a stroll down to the beach bar were we had a nice snack of fresh salad and pizza, in honesty this became a regular thing as this beach bar/restaurant was really nice over looking the beach/sea with good food and drinks available, I will add here we stayed all inculsive. The main restaurant had a good selection of food with plenty of choice, I have read that people had issues with food being luke warm, again I can only say we did not have this issue when we stayed. Drinks in the main bar or pool bar were again very good with plenty of choice, we mainly drank cocktails but I did have a Corona for a change which cost 4.5 Euro not not bad as far as I was concerned. We found all the staff freindly and helpful nothing was to much trouble. the best recommendation I can give is to say that we are looking to return to this hotel next year. However as with all holiday there was a slight down side but not with in the hotel, it was when travelling to the hotel and out and about. There were huge piles of rubbish everywhere, a sign of the Greek economy no doubt, but it does detract from a pretty Island
