Out of their way to be rude
Avaliou em 15 de Agosto de 2021
The proprietors of this hotel seem to have missed their vocation-they aspire to be prison wardens but they are trapped in the hospitality industry.
Never in 50 years of global travel have I been treated with such authoritarian rudeness.
We were chased off the dinner terrace before we had a chance to finish our expensive wine with our dinner and sought refuge in our room where we were chatting quietly with the door open to allow fresh air through the room when another officious staff member insisted we close our door.
We were at least 3 metres from the corridor listening in disbelief when she told us that “she HAD THE AUTHORITY to throw us out onto the street”. 11pm!
Needless to say on the following day we took the earliest opportunity to hit the road and find better hospitality elsewhere.

Small hotel that improves each year. The staff are friendly and the food is very good. Has it's own beach with 14 sunbeds and a beach bar run by friendly Flotini. The views are superb and one morning we saw 4 dolphins swimming just 200 yards out.
Does what it satys on the tin

The Hotel: Clean, tidy, utilitarian, did what it said on the tin. It was the end of the season and some repairs were necessary but nothing that caused and issue. There was an electric socket hanging off the wall in our room which I didn’t use! The main issue was for the first five days of a ten day stay we had no hot water. The hotel manager refused to believe us saying we were just trying to shower at the wrong time of day and other excuses. Finally we managed to get a chamber maid to check and then they had to fix it. The weather was hot but not hot enough for freezing showers. I was very upset and angry at their complete lack of customer care.
The Staff: Bar service was average, the team were a little abrupt. Obviously from the above the only member of staff who was helpful was the lovely chamber maid. Generally they all seemed like they just wanted to go home.
The Beach Bar: Fabulous and so was the lovely lady who ran it. Sadly I cannot remember her name but she’ll know who she is if I say terrified of lizards.
The Beach: Small and gravelly. Most people opted for those neoprene swimming shoes as the sea bead is stony until you get a bit further out. The snorkelling is good with lots of fish. One of the cleanest beaches I’ve seen and no rubbish in the sea either. It gets the sun all day but in September it goes over the hill about 4pm. However you can if you wish see sun rise from the beach, quite spectacular.
10 days in September the sun

We arrived at nearly midnight to a warm greeting from the owner Evi who booked us in and sorted the air conditioning for us. For the next 10 days we enjoyed the pool and the superb small private beach and what was a "fly and flop" break for us. The food was tasty, varied and at a reasonable price as were the range of drinks (we sampled all the beers, winds and cocktails). The service was brilliant either from Evi, Fotini who ran the beach bar or the gents at the main bar (Kosmos and Alexis). We booked a couple of trips through the hotel - the jeep safari was great as was the boat trip. One trip was cancelled by the provider but Evi sorted out the refund for us. The location was also great as the bus into Corfu Town was very good and cheap from the bus stop down the road.
In short amazing. We can't wait to go back next year.

I never been a fan of big resorts, of all-inclusive, of mass tourism. So, I look of certain websites to find a hotel that got good reviews, are small and tidy, and a good location - away from loud bars and crazy people. And of course, I went to the hotel's website to book - It was a bit cheaper and at the end, the hotel doesn't have to pay any fee for bookings.
Aurora Beach Hotel was one of my choices for a long time. But somehow, I ended up on the wrong islands the last few times. But this year I finally got to book and go to this hotel.
Evie and her brother, as well as the whole staff at the hotel doing an amazing job. They are always there if you need them, but also not bothering you with too much care. I mean, asking 15 times a day how you are and if everything is in order, or loud greetings (I had those places in the past). No, you have your chance to relax, to enjoy this beautiful place on your terms.
I rented the apartment for 9 nights. First, I was a bit sceptical to be honest. On google maps the location of the apartment looked a bit far and the street view was not so pretty as well. But okay, the images from google street view are of the year 2011 (2014?), just old.
The good thing to rent the apartment is, even we had half-board booked, we are still able to brew some coffee or cook our own lunch. the facilities are there, everything is clean and cosy.
The walk to the main building doesn't even take a minute. So, no problem at all.
Breakfast and Dinner are in Buffet style with lots of original Greek cuisine. It was simply fresh and delicious.
In the afternoon you can enjoy the view from the beach bar where Fotini serves you with drinks and snacks.
The pebble beach itself is a small strip with sun loungers and Umbrellas - free of charge of course. The water is clear and swimming or diving is impressive. Don't forget to pack some beach shoes.
All in all, Aurora Beach Hotel Corfu is my Tip for a wonderful time on that Island.
