Reasons for trip


The Atlantic Nissaki Beach Hotel in Corfu is an excellent hotel.

Activities include Volleyball, Table Tennis, Aqua Fitness, Pilates, French Boules, Quizzes, Yoga for Beginners, Cocktail Classes, Wine Tasting, Hand Massage and even a Casino Night with free chips.

The Hotel Staff were brilliant, however the TUI personnel were somewhat complacent in my humble opinion and lacked the focus that matched that of the Hotel staff.

I remember the time when holiday reps were fit, slim and enthusiastic. TUI staff in this establishment were somewhat lacking in the basics.

We attended the usual welcome meeting to listen to the usual lecture about the best places to go on their expensive outings. I was tempted by the thought of a beach barbie in the company of bikini clad young nubiles but the wife disagreed.

A stiff organised walk to the Durrel’s House (currently on TV) was also suggested, but somebody said it was very steep, so we gave that a miss!

We had every intention to spend a day in Corfu Town by catching the Hotel’s Courtesy Coach, but the pull of a free bar in the Hotel won the day I’m afraid!

We did make one trip however, and that was to a friendly Taverna a few yards along the pebbly beach to dine in the style of Shirley Valentine. The sea was lazily lapping onto the front of the Taverna in a regular rhythm and young people were larking about in the sea as we waited with expectation for the simple menu and wine list to arrive.

The wine was quite intoxicating, but despite that we managed to stagger back together along the beach to the Hotel for two bedtime cocktails which were described as Rusty Nails!! (Recommended).

Everything about this Hotel was really, really good. It’s situation, it’s ambience, the sea view room with it’s glass fronted balcony, the food, the service. I could not find fault. The free Wi-Fi is brilliant and despite the steepness of the sight, one or two less mobile guests were witnessed speeding up and down the cleverly designed ramps

It’s a crying shame that the the flight to and from Corfu is anything but satisfactory due to the extra and extortionate charges made by Thomsons ( should you wish to accept them) either for sitting together on the plane or extra leg room or even refreshments that used to be included in the fare.

Corfu Airport sadly is a bit third world, but having said that Corfu Island has come on a great deal since our last visit in the 80’s.

It was a relief to find that the Hotel sewerage system was now able to cope with toilet paper and the tap water was better than that of London. As in London however we decided to stay on the side of caution and stick to the bottled variety which was provided free under the all inclusive deal.

I love Greece and the Greek people. I’m sure that as more people appreciate the quality of their hospitality, then their economy will slowly recover.
