We spent 2 weeks in September/October 2016 in this hotel and it was absolutely amazing stay. This hotel run by family so you will see owners every day, Gerry, Victoria and the rest of the family always there to help you. The food was great every day, the bar is cheap and they always have ice cold drinks. Every morning after breakfast we was crossing the road and shill at the beach all day. You have to pay 2 euro for each sunbed but you will get a drink with it beer or water. We had a room on the top with sea view and it was fantastic. Nice sunrise every morning. Room was huge. Bathroom was basic but we always had hot water and not issue at all. It is Corfu, Greece so to settle your expectation it is not like one of those resorts in Cancun. We loved this hotel and will be most definitely back in 2018. This hotel located few minutes walking distance from all Tavernas and shops, there is ATM around 3 min walk from hotel. We rented a car for 3 days and drove around all island. You can park car cross the road from hotel. Renting place didn't need your credit card which is handy. Make sure first thing you do you got to the petrol station as they give you cars without petrol in it! See you next year! Julie

I stayed here with Solo holidays. The general atmosphere in the hotel is polite and efficient. However, the first room I was given was poor. Dark and dismal.....not enough plug sockets that worked!! However, when I tried to contact reception by telephone wasn't working either.... Nevertheless, eventually I was moved to a different room. Thanks to the hotel manager but was done in Greek time!!😂😂. I would stay here again. The breakfasts were good but evening meals lacked a decent pudding option l, for those of you are not northern, deserts were severely lacking!

I stayed at this Hotel in August 2017. and all I can say is that the customer service is outstanding, rooms are daily cleaned, every other day bed sheets and towels are changed although it can be daily changed too. Food was great, lots of different food so everyone can be pleased... fish, meet, pastas, lots of salads, fruits, sweet table etc. Hotel have two elevators and one was always working but the other one didn't work for a couple of days. Wi-fi signal was great in the room, so it's not necessary to be in the lobby to use the internet. Staff of the hotel is really great and I would definitely visit this Hotel again and recommend it to friend and family.

Lovely family run hotel, We went on the 21st - 28th September and found the staff very friendly and always willing to help, rooms, food and entertainment very good, rooms cleaned everyday, definitely one of our best holidays. Made even more so by the friendliness of George, Jerry and Billy who were always there to make time for the holiday makers. We will be booking shortly for next year with family and friends.

We stayed in Potomaki Beach Hotel from11.09.2017 to 21.09.2017. The first impression of this hotel was very good. We asked for double room but we got room with three beds. We wanted to change the room but then cleaners put two beds together and it was ok as now we had a huge bed. The lovers of the firm mattress will be excited to sleep in this beds, so did I. The furniture in the room was old and the interior was dark but it just depends on personal taste. The view of the window was nice - every morning we looked at the beautiful mountain. In general room was ok. We noticed that cleaners come every day to clean the room and to put new bed linen and towels. But the last day before our flight cleaners didn't came to clean ower room, so we decided that they just don't want to waste their time for people, who tomorrow leave. It wasn't nice. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel. We was a little bit dissapointed of the food choice. We hoped that there will be more seafood and fresh vegetables and fruits. In our opinion food choice was quite poor. But we weren't hungry. The hotel has a very good location. The beach is near the hotel (you just need to cross the road). Bus stop is near the hotel on the other side of the road. One of the biggest advantage of this hotel is a free air-conditioner and WIFI in the room. In conclusion, we can say that it is a good place to stay in.

When we book the room we thoigjt that we will go in a very nice hotel with very comfortable room..and what we get was a room with no view and a very tough matres that make our nights no so relaxing..breakfast was ok .the only possitive was that was clean

Just back form a 10 night holiday at Potamaki hotel .. on arrival the hotel & resort was better than our expectation & we were greeted by friendly staff .. My room was spotless a lovely double bed, on booking it stated mountain views but we had mountain & sea views which was a bonus .. the rooms are cleaned every day, fresh sheets, towels - air con spot on, mini fridge, flat screen tv .... Entertainment 5 nights a week, the circus & Greek nights were brilliant ! .. We booked a boat trip to Paxos & anti Paxos through Corfu Cruises just up the road 25 euros is a must ! .... The beautiful beach opposite the hotel, see Billy for a sunbed, umbrella & drink 3 euro for the day .. Thankyou Jerry & Billy for a memorable holiday we are coming back next year !

Dobar stariji hotel, odlicno odrzavan. Odlicna higijena. Peskire i posteljinu menjaju svaki dan. Ribaju kupatilo svaki dan, Ljubazni i uvek nasmejani. Imali smo dorucak i veceru. Odlicna hrana i raznovrsna. Uvek imaju veci izbor mesa, salate i prilozi. Plaza i more su cisti i vrlo su blizu. Nasa soba je gledala na stranu bazena, tako da nismo imali problema sa bukom - muzikom. Svako vece se ispred hotela, a u okviru hotela odrzavaju nastupi. Tako da nam to nije smetalo jer smo bili okrenuti na stranu koja gleda u bazen. Hotel je za svaku preporuku! Good old hotel, greatly maintained. Excellent hygiene. The towels and linens change every day. They clean bathroom every day. Very kind people and always smiling. We had breakfast and dinner. Excellent food and diverse. They always have a greater choice of meat and salads.. The beach and the sea are clean and very close. Our room was looking at the side of the pool, so we had no noise problems - music. Every evening in front of the hotel, there was performances. So it did not bother us because we were at the side that was looking at the pool. The hotel is for every recommendation!

We had 4 beds AND a baby cot and the room was still large enough. Beds were extremely comfortable. Enormous balcony looking at the sea, from where we could enjoy the evening program on the ground open floor. The shower in the rooms and the lifts were very narrow. Staff was kind but vigilant not to take away any food from the restaurant (incl.picking out of one's purse, if they dared). An extremely busy road right in front of the hotel - impossible to leave kids cross it alone to get to the beach across the street. The beach itself is rocky and dusty. Thus we'd rather go to other beaches by car.

I booked my holiday through Solitair, a solo traveller specialist company. Solitair, on two occasions confirmed to me that seven people had booked this particular holiday. There were only three of us and I can not imagine that four people pulled out and lost their money. Solitair advertise that this hotel has a “pristine” swimming pool. I disagree, the swimming pool area needs a lot of attention to be pristine! They do also not explain that in front of the hotel is a busy main road with a blind bend. You need to cross this road to access the beach, so if you have any mobility issues, this could be a problem. They also advertise that the accommodation is “tastefully decorated with a relaxing sea themed decor”. My room was very basic, no “sea theme”, hard bed, rubbish shower and plug sockets in inconvenient locations in the room. The hotel is very clean and the cleaners did a good job every day. The hotel and resort of Benitses predominately caters for Russian and East European visitors. British visitors are few.... There is a bus stop opposite the hotel so it is easily to take buses to Corfu Town and other places. Reading the reviews, they say the staff at the hotel are friendly. The reception staff are unfriendly and unhelpful! The food in the hotel is disappointing. There is no Greek food as such. Obviously the hotel is catering for the Russian/Eastern European visitors who unfortunately have a tendency to pile their food high on their plates with no thought for others. Desserts were extremely disappointing. My main criticism is with Solitair and their lack of honesty. Thank god, we had a lovely rep, Karen!
