Apollon Hotel Reviews - Travelers Advice on Hotel Apollon in Corfu, Paleokastritsa
Certainly in one of the best locations of Paleokastritsa, the Apollon hotel is only a few metres from the two main bays of
the village. The direct seaviews from the rooms are spectacular. The hotel is renowned for its excellent service and good value for money on food and drinks. Some evening entertainment is organised. The Apollon is in a central location, so it gets busy during the day, especially in July & August. Due to the hilly nature of Paleokastritsa village, Apollon hotel is not suitable for the less mobile

Re: Marvellous accommodation overlooking the beautiful Paleokastritsa bay
by GregOdysseus on August 2008 | Overal Rating of Apollon hotel: 10/10
Staying in the same place for two weeks was something of a novelty since our children left home. So it was fortunate that the hotel Apollon was so comfortable and well-positioned. Our room on the second floor in the main building could not have been better, enhanced as it was by a large balcony overlooking the bay beneath and big enough on which to lie comfortably on sun-loungers. On some days, we were happy just to sunbathe outside our room and occasionally nip down to swim in the sea. As others have made clear, and as you might expect, the main beach of Paleokastritsa can get crowded in August. Nevertheless, on several days we hired sunbeds and had fantastic days; the bay is really enjoyable to swim in.
And for those who prefer pedalos, canoes and/or motor boats, there were lots of alternatives. The Apollon hotel was the most popular venue in Paleokastritsa, but was never too busy or noisy; our room directly above the main bar was very peaceful - even on karaoke nights! Spiro and Karen run an admitable business with great pride in what must be Corfu's finest resort (especially after the day-trippers have left). We hired a car for the full fortnight. Which was definitely worth it, letting us make enjoyable trips to less-accessible villages such as Lakones and Ermones. Corfu Town is, of course, a must-visit - although the short bus journey is a better bet if you don't like driving abroad in traffic. More than 30 years since my wife and I made separate visits (as students), Paleokastritsa remains remarkably unspoiled. And the Apollon Hotel is the perfect play to stay when you visit.

Clean and comftorable accomodation, good for Greek standards. Fantastic position overlooking Paleokastritsa beach where the water is crystal clear.  We were half board and the breakfast was what you'd expect.  Evening meals were acceptable but rather plain so we mainly ate at Astacos next door where the owner cooked some fantastic Greek dishes.  Apollon hotel provided entertainment on various nights which seemed to go down well although we did not partake.  It did not disturb you however. Air conditioning is a must for a good nights sleep and to keep the mosquitos out.  We were not bitten at all but people without air con suffered!
There are quite a few small beaches to choose from.  The one opposite hotel Apollon did get quite busy but had a good atmosphere and did not feel crowded.  Sun loungers were on the dear side at ten euros for two beds and an umbrella.  I have never seen so many people in the sea which was beautifully clear.  Beach shoes are a must as it is quite rocky.  Snorkelling was quite good. Paleokastritsa gets a lot of day trippers but this time of year did not feel crowded.  Coaches come and go but most go on boat trips out to the cave or up to the Monastry.  Evenings in the resort were quiet and relaxed. An excellent holiday and higly recomended

Stayed at Apollom hotel end July 08, due to delay in flight arrived early hours of the morning but staff still there to take us to the
room. Stayed in the Annex not what we was expecting but after talking to the owners they changed our room and from then on the holiday got better and better. Very clean, friendly and the food was supurb. The boat trips are a must to see the island and coves. Dont do any of the wonderful walks around mid-day (gets too hot). Local supermarket sells everything you need. All in all fantastic holiday, enjoyed it so much going back on 21st October to the same place with our son.

Re: Review of 'APOLLON' Summer holiday !

Stayed in Apollon Hotel ,Paleo, Corfu in July 2006 for 2 weeks. Its situated 75m,50m and 15m from 3 separate beaches so if its a beach holiday your after then this is the place to be. Hotel Apollom is extremely laid back and all staff are very friendly.
Directly opposite hotel is the main beach where you can hire your own boat or pedalo/canoe or take a fantastic boat trip around caves,sites or just laze on the beach. There is a monastry on top of a hill nearby with superb views. For the more energetic, the climb to Bella-Vista, situated directly above the hotel,on a mountain has breathtaking views over all the bays in Paleokastritsa Corfu. A traditional mountain village called Lakones, where old men and ladies sit in the shade is worth a visit .A superb holiday.
