It was ok! Not that clean but the people made up for that lovely peolpe all over the town, holiday reps were so helpful! If you do attend the balcony is the best restaurant to eat in and just below is a bar called los amigos lovely and very helpful and friendly!!
Just returned last night from Corfu and would say that St georges and Corfu town are a dump a mish mash of half finished buildings and litter everywhere.St Georges was shoking like your worst UK council sheme on a good day.
The Plazza was nice and very clean but the facilities in the appartments was average,ie poor shower cold then scalding,no laundry,two ring hob, no drainer on the sink,fit for breakfasts only.
The Blackpool style entertainment late at night was wearing,one night off would have been nice
The best restaraunt is the Panoramma near the middle,a bit dearer but excellent service and good food, the Paladium do a nice lemon sole with potatoes,
The beach is lovely and the people in the Plazza do try hard,hire a car on site its cheaper but get all the insurance you can and take sick bags for the kids as the roads are like the italian job
Aqualand scuba diving and a car tour of the north of the Island were all enjoyed by my lot(wife and two boys 10 and 7)
Overall 6 /10 due to St Georges and Corfu town
Had a superb time in Corfu, would highly recommend St George. The plaza apartments were clean, as the poor cleaners whom no doubt were paid peanuts would cart a huge shopping trolley round in the sweltering heat all day cleaning the lot!
AVOID THE IRON DRAGON, CHINESE RESTAURANT! Had a hideous meal there, very pricey, and the staff had obviously had a bit too much to drink, as they were all very ill mannered. You cant judge a book by it's cover, it looks lovely from the outside, but i certainly wont be taking my kids there again (they already picked up the f*** wrd), that was enough for one night!!!
If you do decide to hire a car, and you would like to see a bit of culture, avoid Kavos and venture up the hills to the small village of Chlomos, beautiful views..be sure to take your camera!!
I stayed at the Corfu Plazza Apartments, it is very family orientated. We felt this made us feel safer when walking about on our own at night. Its only about 5mins walk to the beach. The apartments were cleaned daily so very clean.
I must agree with others that the prices on drinks and ice creams are expensive at the pool bar. Some ice creams were 3 euros which is about £2.10. It is cheaper to drink in the bars and tavernas along the seafront. And ice creams etc are cheaper in the supermarkets of which there are plenty!
Comments on St George resort: - English products seemed to be more expensive so try to buy tea bags, coffee etc before you go.
Ciggerettes in corfu are amazingly cheap!!!!! A pack of 20 of Regal is equivalant to £1.80. You can buy 200 for equivalent to £18.00. There are also some cigs called Leader which you can get for £7.00 for 200.
Comments on Restaurants and Tavernas:-
There is a chinese restaurant along the seafront, looks lovely but be ware!! we went there on our last nite as a treat, the service was disgusting! And the food was so salty that we couldnt eat it. To be fair we did go at about 12pm but still it is one of the most expensive places to eat. We did complain but instead of recieving an apology we recieved the bill! My favourite place to have a relaxing drink was La Bistrot, the staff were lovely, very friendly. The drinks are cheap as well. and its a lovely spot to sit and watch the sea.
My partner and I have stayed at the Palm Beach Hotel and it was absolutely excellent cant rave about it enough, but i know want to take the kids and want info on staying in or close to this site in a room/rooms for all 5 of us.
had a brill time apartment was recently refurbished but the only down point was the price of drinks and snacks at the bar total rip off. we bought our own from the shop instead.
