What a great place, i read all the comments before going and the place really lived up to them So sad to be back but have already booked to go back next year with Thomas Cook again.

The apartments have had a bit of a make over, still a little basic but spotless and kept that way all the time we were there. I never did get the resident dogs name, what a cutey. the kitten miowing pitifully under our balcony drove hubby mad one night lol shhh don't tell him i threw milky bread out for it the next day lol
It was what i wanted , quiet, lots of tavernas nearby and a lovely beach with beautiful sunsets.
Oh and the barman loved it when i ordered sex on the beach , you can imagine the comments  lol

Can anyone tell me which tour operator has Kapetanios for 2009? I've looked in loads of brochures and on the web and can't find them anywhere! We went in 2005 and wanted to make a return visit. Do they have their own website?

Just arrived back from kapetanios apartments, I'm so sad to be home!! I loved every minute of my holiday. I arrived on the friday afternoon and was greeted by Nikos with a wonderful smile, I went on holiday on my own, but I was never on my own Nikos an Spyros made sure I was well looked after and had a gret time day and night. My glass was never empty and there was always a friendly face to talk to. So if your going on holiday choose kapetanios, you will be so glad you did. The rooms are great and clean the pool and bar are excellent. and Nikos and Spyros will look after you from the day you arrive untill you go home. I will be back there next year. Can't wait!!!

back a week now and still depressed. This was our second visit to the good ship kapetanios.We had a fantabulous time. The apts are basic but very clean. There is plenty of places in san stefanos to eat ,drink or have a great night out.The kapetanios is a great place to meet new people .Nicos and Spiros work there and make the holiday for us .They are absolutely brilliant making you feel very welcome in every way. We spent alot of our holiday in their company and they never see you with an empty glass.The rep Amandine (aberdeen)also helped to make it the perfect holiday along with (the rep we never had) Mandi.We are going back next year and cant wait .Look out Nicos and Spiros, mera bira paracalor !!!!!!!. Come on !!!!! Get yourself over there you wont regret it

just got back from 2 weeks at kapetanios yesterday and missing it already!!!  we were in a party of 8(4 adults and 4 kids) and all of us feel the same-we had the most fantastic hol!! apartments are basic but great location and family that runs them are very nice-best by far are the two barmen-nickos and spiros who go out of their way to make you feel more than welcome. they give the place a great atmosphere both day and night ! spiros talent for cocktails and shots is amazing .
we've all agreed we'll prob be back next year without a doubt

 Just got back yesterday from our stay at the Kapetanios Appartments.
It was allocacated on arrival but I must say it was one of the best holidays I have had. Nicos and Spiros who run the bar ect are fantastic in their own different ways and I will be looking forward to seeing them again as I will most definately be going back.The room was lovely and very clean. The pool was great and also very clean.
The only downside is that I am covered in mossie bites everwhere.
Going down into the town the reataraunts are good and not expensive the entertainment in the town is good especially the magician at the Condor!
Cant wait to go again it was a lovely relaxing holiday I really couldn't think of going anywhere else now.

I stayed at the kapetanios apartments in sept 2005 the staff were friendly but accomodation was well below standard. We arrived at 6am to realise that the room didnt have a cot for our two year old son we then waited until 11pm before a shody and dirty looking travel cot arrived.  The area is extremely hilly with a good 15 to 20 min walk round to thebeach or whatseemed to be a bout 400 steps(slightly exagurated) so it was a nightmare with a pushchair. The local restaurants and bars were great especially the greek nights that they held there. The appartments were very disappointing. the best day we had was on aptain Theos boat well worth every pound.
I have to say I wont be going back to corfu and the way I feel I wont be going to any of the greek islands if theyre anything to go by corfu.

Hello There, Fresh off the flight this morning and wanted all to see what i thought about Kap. We stayed there for 2 weeks first thing first me and my Gf threw our bags in unpacked and set off to have a look at what the resort had to offer,we went to the welcome meeting with Amandine (Frenchie) the rep, we thought the meeting was very helpful and gave us a little more insite to what we could do and where we could go. Within mins of getting back to the side of the pool from our walk a very cheary dark blonde haired man made his way and introduced himself as Nikos, he came across very pleaseant and only too pleased to help with any requests. having been up all night traveling we opted to rest by the side of the pool where we had a drink and took in the start of what was to be a beautiful holiday. :) that evening  as nikos's shift ended Spiros arrived a little quieter than nikos but all the same a wonderful attitude and very polite and cortious towards us, we found that as the holiday went on getting to know spiros and nikos that little better making the quiet moments into some thin a little more pleasant. The food in the Kap is really  nice chicken soup is nice and the stuffed cicken or chicken with mushrooms and fried onions was one of my very favorites, try the cocktails as they are really good too especially as they dont hav measures over there..  Any hooo i have got th picture over now, I'm sure you are able to make up your own mind.

we are just back from the kapetanios apts, and we have had the best of holidays!!!

we arrived on 4th may, 07, my husband ben, my daughter kelly and myself, and we felt so welcome straight away. Nicos and Spiros the two barmen are the best guys we have ever met, nothing was too much trouble, whatever you wanted they did there best for you. Spiros the barmen in the evening makes the best cocktails. The surrounding area is so lovely, the bay and the beach all great. We found a great little restaurant Little prince, in the town near by the san stefanos travel shop. fantastic food and great prices.  great holiday.

My family always stay in these apartments.The family that owns them are very,very good people.The rooms are lovely and the surrounding area is beautifull on an evening.The pool is very clean and no you dont have to pay for sunbeds anywhere in san steph apart from the beach.This is a lovely place to bring your family,we have had many happy times here.The atmosphere is very relaxed.I have stayed here in may and in october before and the weather has always been better then i expected(very good tanning).The bar staff are lovely but Nickos is definatly the best.You will love it.Everyone i have met always wants to go back.

We have just returned from two weeks at Kapetanios. It was really relaxing, very friendly, always very clean and a beautiful location. Nicos and Spryos did everything they could to make our family feel welcome. Never too crowded and plenty of space around the pool and down at the beach.
Zorba's was excellent and so was Willie's Washouse.
Recommend Nova cars - no problems, but do go prepared for the mozzies!!!

Ruth D           

Fantastic resort - highly recommended for all ages. The road to the apartments is not as bad as we thought and only takes ten minutes from town.  Spiros is the friendly barman and will always stop for chat!  Pool is always clean and the cleaner is in every day.

Stefanos is a resort which needs to be visited, with plenty going on around the north of Corfu if you want to go and explore the island more.  Definitely visit Zorbas, by far the best restaurant in town.  The prices are good and the food second to none in the area. 
Should you wish to venture to Sidari, it's only 20 minutes.  Good luck with the hair-raising bends over there too.

Just got back from Ag. Stefanos friday 16th June 2006 and just wanted to say"What a holiday!!!" My daughter and I both had lumps in our throats the size of Corfu when we left!! Nikos and Spiros where the most gracious of hosts and made you fee like you lived there permenantly rather than temporarily. The other guests where friendly, the food was good and the pool was clean! What more could anyone ask? Keep up the good work and i'll see you guys next year!

I have just been to kapetanios apartments for 2 weeks and didnt want to leave. As soon as i was on the coach to go home i cried my eyes out!!! lol I will miss the friendlyness of everyone including theo, nikos and dimitri (all winners). The bar was brilliant, so were our homes for the two weeks. If you're going anywhere this summer make sure its here,coz you'll love every minute.

We had 2 weeks at the Kapetanios and had a fantastic time. The apartments and pool are very clean, and the pool bar serves food all day right through from English breakfast to snacks and proper taverna food in the afternoon and evening. (Try their kleftiko, it is excellent!) As with any holiday though, it is the people who make the real difference and the guys at Kapetanios are brilliant - Dimitris and Nikos behind the bar are really good fun, friendly and a laugh. We came away feeling that we had made two excellent new friends. The maid and other staff were also friendly and welcoming.

San Stef is a nice resort, laid back but with plenty of choice for supermarkets and restaurants. Top tips from us for eating include the Olive Press (well worth the walk), and the Tex Mex if you fancy non-Greek food. The Barras is OK and by far the cheapest taverna we found. The paper shop does cash back (at 6% mind) if you get strapped for cash, as there are no cash machines in the resort, or you can get the bus for 90 cents into Sidari where there are several. They can cash travellers cheques at the Kapetanios which is really convenient.
Car hire is cheap - we used Nova Car, they were half the price of Avis!

I see there have been a few queries regarding late check out. We had night flights too and had to be out of our room at 12 noon when we were not getting picked up until the next morning at 2.15AM! You can ask the rep for an extension until 7pm for EUR20 if the room is available. We did not have this option but the guys at Kapetanios will find you a spare room where you can take a shower and change in the evening, so it's not too bad.

Things to watch are the mozzies - out in force this year - and the hill up to the Kapetanios which you get used to after a while.

i too have a early flight at 05.55am, does that mean i will be with no hotel room from twelve the previous day, is there a late leave room avaliable?

Janet R

We have just come back from staying at the Kapetanios ..........its our second time .....we used the facilities of the Kapetanios but actually stayed in the Stathis apartments which overlooks the pool. The two greek barmen Nik and Dimitri were so welcoming, funny, great to be with and they know how to look after you. Children are always welcome. The pool table is a bit dodgy with a bit of a roll on it. The surrounding facilities are all down hill...... its ok going down but take your time coming back up. Its all worth it as the view is spectacular.................and with the weather is just the best this is a great spot to have a quiet relaxing time but if you want to let your hair down there is plenty of bars tavernas..two stars is pretty cheap.....the Condor has disco, movies during the day, sky tv and food is excellent......but we all enjoyed the food where ever we were. For Greek dancing at its best the Prince offered a waiter who can lift two flaming tables with his teeth!!.........Sidari is a 12 euro ride away for those who are more into partying all night........its busy and has masses of shops and a MacDonalds......and most importantly has the chemist......watch out for those mosquitos and has three or four bank machines.

We are booking to return next year so that tells you what we think

I have booked to go to the Kapetanios Apartments and fond I have to check out at 12 noon when my flight is not till 6.00 am the following morning. I have tried to contact the apartments to ask for a late check out but cannot seem to contact anyone. The tour operator was no help. Has anyone stayed there and be able to stay later in their apartment.
