Online booking with Olympic Holidays went without a hitch and we opted for 6am flight from Birmingham. Flew with Monarch Airlines. Okay, but not great. Good to have the Olympic desk in Corfu airport as we had to find our booked transfer coach. Easy transfer to Akrotiri Hotel in Paleokastritsa with nice scenery on the way.
Hotel was perfect. Unpretentious, relaxing and friendly. Good and clean facilities. Fantastic view from balcony. Food ranged from excellent to fair. Four courses for dinner with four choices of main course. (A few too many salads). Resort still quite quiet for early June, but plenty to see and do. Must go on boat trip to see other local beaches. Villages above hotel worth a trip if only for the fabulous view. (Don't do the donkey trail walk unless you're very fit and it's not too hot).
Nice bar and restaurant on beach, but prices in hotel very reasonable plus you have a lovely view.
Overall a great holiday.
