Because of its proximity and history with continental Europe, the island of Corfu was actually one of the first Greek islands to experience mass tourism.
For this reason, Corfu has numerous accommodation options, many restaurants and bars and a more cosmopolitan atmosphere than the neighboring islands.
When I thought about organizing my trip, I decided to opt for a resort that lived up to the expectations of this wonderful island: after reading many reviews on hotels and resorts in Corfu, the choice was to try, for once , an all-inclusive open last May: the choice fell on ‘ Ikos Dassia Resort .
I admit, the choice was a little risky: it is known that the new structures are beautiful but that you can incur the usual difficulties of a resort without running-in.
The expectations were however very high and, believe me, I could not have made a better choice: it is no coincidence that Ikos Resorts have dominated the scene of the last year in the panorama of luxury all-inclusive resorts winning the “2018 Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice awards “ .
The Ikos Dassia is about a 30-minute drive from Corfu Airport (CFU) on the east coast of the island, in a beautiful bay, where you can admire breathtaking sunrises and incredible views of the mainland. It is also strategically located for visiting the island.
As soon as we set foot outside the airport of Corfu we were greeted by the representative of Ikos Dassia, who very kindly took us to the car to take us to the Resort where we are given some refreshing towels and we are invited to sit on the terrace.
Waiting for the room (our choice fell on a Panorama Junior Suite ) we are given all the information regarding the stay: activities, restaurants, theme nights. So we are invited to have breakfast.
Since the wait for the room is prolonged, we decide to make a first round to discover the Resort just to confirm our first impression: the rooms are beautifully furnished with class and elegance , nothing is left to chance. In particular, the Hall is bright and composed of several lounges where guests can read, relax and have a drink.
