Corfu

Located on the southeast coast of Corfu in the popular resort town of Agios Ioannis, this modern resort hotel offers the ideal setting for a family holiday of fun in the sun. Here, guests can enjoy a wide variety of sports and leisure activities from tennis and volleyball to archery and billiards, or simply spend lazy afternoons lounging by the inviting outdoor pool. Children will delight in the children's swimming pool with waterslides as well as the colourful playground. The hotel provides spacious and bright standard or family rooms, as well as a variety of helpful services including a mini-market, car hire and Wi-Fi in the main building. Guests can wake up to a delightful buffet breakfast in the main restaurant and enjoy drinks and snacks throughout the day at the pool and beach bars. The restaurant also puts on fun theme nights offering Italian, Greek, and Oriental cuisines, and provides a special buffet for children.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Fantastic freindly hotel and staff that care.

Review by JOHN161300 Bury St. Edmunds, United Kingdom

We booked a fortnight all inclusive holiday at the Primasol for sept/oct last year and from the moment we arrived and received a lovely warm welcome we were allocated our room which although we had booked a mountain view we were given a sea view room with the most amazing view,our first night was spent finding our way around the hotel but not before we sampled the resturaunt quisine which we found very plentiful and varied.The next day saw us heading down to the hotel beach where we found everything we wanted from the plentiful sunbeds to the bar and the beach snack area and where we met the lovely lady who prepared the snacks im sorry but i cant remember her name but she always gave us a smile,after a long day at the beach which is as mentioned a pebble beach but having read reports we had brought beach shoes the area is fantastic for those who like to snorkel we headed back to our lovely room to prepare for Dinner we used the main bar for our pre dinner drinks and we met Johanni the barman whilst we were enjoying our drinks we met the General manager Mr George who came and introduced himself to us which we thought was a lovely gesture then it was into the restuarant where we were treated to more gastronomical delights something for everyone which we found to be same throughout our 14 night stay.We also met Dagmar who is a mine of information and very helpful as were the reception staff,later that evening we met the duty manager George who has a very dry sense of humour which added all the more to our stay the animation team tried to involve everyone in the things in the evening most of which were hilarious,for us the best of the entertainment came from the Bazouki night what very talented musicians and the Greek Dancers i dont know where they get their energy from and then there were the three tenors from south africa who left us all wanting more we thought that this year we might go somewhere else but we have said that this hotel has everything we need and more and so we have booked again for the 21st of september for 14 nights and we are looking forward to meeting all the staff again because the staff really make you feel your more like family because they care we even got a Kalimera from the housekeeping staff every morning so all we can say is we are looking forward to meeting our friends again this year.

Avoid if you don't enjoy wasps constantly around you...

Review by sarahhG70RX

We came to this hotel as a family with a three year old child and personally I wouldn't return again... there were however a few good points:

Staff - the staff, especially the restaurant and housekeeping staff are fantastic; really friendly, attentive and so hard working. They are a credit to the hotel.

Food - the food was lovely, always a variety of well cooked dishes...

There is also a separate buffet for the children (spaghetti bolognase, chicken nuggets , chips etc).

Apart from that, I have to say our experience was negative, due to the following:

Entertainment - we didn't get to experience any day time entertainment as this is all held on the 6th floor (will come on to this later) but we were highly disappointed with the evening entertainment. The mini disco consists of the exact same songs repeated for half an hour each night, some children were not made to feel involved and it only lasts half an hour (it doesn't eve n start until 8/8.30) then there is absolutely no entertainment until around 10pm.

Wasps - this hotel is absolutely swarmed with wasps, you have no chance of being able to eat outside and if you head up to the pool, you will again be completely swarmed. The beach is infested with them too but not as bad. The hotel seem to reply to comments about this with (it's nature due to the island's lush vegetation etc..) but I saw no effort by the hotel to address this. This has put me off visiting Corfu ever again as it is so bad. We were all stung during our holiday and I even started to dread going outside because of it.

Beach - although the sea is beautiful and perfect for swimming in, the beach is awful. This isn't a shingle beach as described but a rocky, pebble beach. The sunbeds are really old and falling apart and you need to buy swim shoes to be able to paddle in the sea because of the stones.

Air conditioning - the air con in the rooms has had it's time - really noisy and ineffective, it is still boiling at night.

Lifts - there are only two tiny lifts for the whole hotel (over 200 rooms), it is a nightmare trying to get one during peak hours and an even further walk up to the swimming pools. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people with young children or those in wheelchairs.

Generally I felt that the hotel needs investment in updating things such as new AC systems and additional lifts. Regardless of that however, I wouldn't visit again because of the wasps and lack of decent evening entertainment for children - it ruined the holiday for us.

Lovely Holiday

Review by becca95x Leeds, United Kingdom

All in all was a lovely holiday, the food was tasty and the pool was really nice, it was just out of season when we went so we had a lie in every morning and didn't have to reserve sunbeds which i was happy about. The hotel was pretty quiet which we preferred, the rooms were spotless, pretty basic but nothing to complain about. My Only real issues were; 1) The Hotel is on a main road (granted we knew that before going) but there is literally nowhere to walk to & no footpaths either, if you wanted to go anywhere it had to be on the bus...

  1. There was LOADS of wasps, again i generally found that if you ignored them and sprayed yourself with insect repellent you were fine most of the time, but there were the odd ones that didn't leave you alone. 3) The night time entertainment was rubbish, i was gutted to be fair as there was no bars around so you were pretty much stuck to the hotel on a night!

One of the MAJOR highlights of the holiday though i have to say is Nico's Taverna which is a little walk on the opposite side of the street, it was amazing! the couple that own it are fab, we went twice during our week stay and they couldnt be any more accommodating. Food was amazing ( i recommend the Grilled feta starter), the courtyard where it is set is lovely & if i could, id go again and again and again!

All in all it was a lovely holiday, weather was lovely, hotel was good & we did enjoy out time :)

Excellent Service

Review by ritabrown12

We had the most fantastic time during our stay. We were a strong group of 12 celebrating our friend's 30th birthday. We made use of all the facilities the hotel had to offer and they came in handy like during our games night, we used the 6th floor open roof terrace and also the 1st floor lounge...

Aqua aerobics in the 6th floor swimming pool as morning fitness was great. Highly recommend this hotel. The customer service was impeccable, really impressed. And it was such a joy to wake up to see the view of the sea and islands from afar
