Hotel Costas Golden Beach
19 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
The whole package!!!
"Stayed for two weeks at the beginning of August......safe to say this is honestly the best hotel we have ever stayed in, rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with TVs, pool is wonderful (there is also a jacuzzi! This was not mentioned in the catalogue! And whilst on the subject, not only is the photo of this hotel in the Thomson catalogues not up to date, but the description does not even begin to do it justice-you have to see it to believe it!), food is great. Even the views from the hotel are perfect! The resort itself is quiet (which is not a bad thing) but there is still plenty to do. Hotel entertainment in the evenings is more than adequate whatever your age and taste, or Sidari is a short drive away if you want something later and louder (not the nicest town but if you want nightlife this is the place to go!)! Finally, (and this is definitely worth a mention, again you'd have to see it to understand!) the family who run this hotel are exceptional. They are so friendly and welcoming and just this extra detail makes your holiday just that little bit more special. 11/10 for everything! Most of the guests who stay in this hotel have been before and you can really see why."

Great food and friendly staff.
"We arrived at this hotel second week of August with our two teenage children for a one week stay. If you want a holiday with quite days, excellent food and some lively evenings - this is the hotel for you. Our ground floor rooms overlooked the gardens, pool, and beach and were ideal for my family who enjoyed the holiday very much. This is a hotel with a personal touch. Dimitri and his family work well to make you feel very welcome. If we ever go back to Costas, it would be for two weeks . not one."

Wonderful ! Everything they say is true !!!
"Looked this hotel up on Trip Advisor before booking and could not believe the fantastic reviews, had to go and see for ourselves. Yes , it's true, it's wonderful - the room, the staff, the pool, the jacuzzi, the beach, the location etc. etc. Dimitri and his whole family are most excellent hosts and really do care about the hotel and their guests, you are one of his family !! It's the little details like the whole family coming to greet you off the coach, (no carrying your own luggage here!!) freshly prepared meal on arrival, even at 11.30pm, mosquito doors on all room so you can sleep with the veranda doors open listening to the lapping of the sea ( yes I'm still there!), cold water fountain so no buying bottled water, food you can really eat and enjoy, Dimitri warning guests if he thinks it's too hot and they should seek shade or get in the pool, spotless accomodation throughout and finally the family waving you off on departure.
There is a new aircon system installed.
A wonderful quiet place to relax and chill where nothing is any trouble for the staff. Go there !!!"

What a brilliant hotel
"My girlfriend and I have just returned from costas golden beach hotel. We looked up the hotel on trip advisor prior to booking. This is one of the best holidays we have had and it was a pleasure staying at the hotel. The family who run this hotel are so polite and friendly that it would be hard to find anywhere better. Right from the moment you arrive your welcomed and made to feel at home. Most of the rooms have a sea view. You can wake up to the sound of the sea lapping the beach as its only a small road width from the beach. The rooms are cleaned everyday and have air con, tv and mosquito nets on the doors so you can leave your doors open on a night with no fear of any mosquito's getting in. Your also able to have drinking water on a tap near the bar area which means you dont have to buy lots of bottle water. There is a jacuzzi next to the pool which is a nice touch to chill even further. There is a tennis court, which doubles as a 5 a side pitch if enough guests wish to play the hotel team. The food is excellent and plenty of choice to suit most tastes."

What a wonderful family run hotel
"We have just returned from a week at the Costas Golden Beach Hotel. This hotel is one of the best we have ever been to. It was our first time in Corfu and we had looked up reviews of this hotel prior to our booking. What can we say. We have never been made more welcome. They couldn't do enough for us. All but 6 rooms have a sea view. All rooms have air conditioning which can be used for as little as 2 Euro per day. The hotel has beautiful looked after gardens. They offer buffet breakfast and dinner which is to all tastes. Every night is a different night of entertainment, for example bingo, greek dancing, etc. We would definately recommend this hotel. It's a 3 star hotel with a 5 star feel.

our favorite hotel
"My Wife & i have had some wonderful holidays at costa,s golden beach hotel, this family run hotel is central to the beautiful bay,which is only a few metres across a quiet road.we have been back to this lovely hotel seven times over the last twelve years, the last visit was four years ago. We said this would be the last time,but the lovely greek family headed by Dimitris and his lovely wife Dina have made so many improvements since our last visit that we are definitely going back next year. The food is varied and delicious (buffet style) , the hotel is spotless and with a new swimming & jakuzi has made this hotel paradise. we cannot fault this hotel on anything. This years holiday has been our best ever holiday.We felt at home from the moment we arrived and the greeting we received on arrival was so friendly it was like we were part of the family.

"An absolutely wonderful hotel. We arrived at 4 am in the morning and we were met off the bus and shown to our room. Dimitri was so welcoming we felt at home straight away. The pool is gorgeous and the new addition of the jacuzzi is superb. You can sit in the warm jacuzzi looking out to sea. The view from the rooms is amazing and the best we have ever seen. Food is good with an excellent choice for even the pickiest eaters.
The evening entertainment always consisted of a disco by Dimitri or Spiros playing some brilliant songs. We'll never forget Neil Diamond and "Forever in blue jeans - yeah".
There's a pool table which only costs 1 euro and the weekly pool competition is definitely worth a try. There is also a tennis court / five-a-side football pitch which looks to be brand new. You can play a game with the Greeks!
We were there during the group stages of the World Cup and the big screens (1 in the restaurant and 1 in reception) came in very useful. Plus all the hotel staff supported England, hanging out flags for each England game.
The rooms now have air conditioning which is controlled by reception. Plus the water tap for drinking water is so handy. You don't need to buy bottled water.
All in all a fantastic place to go. All the guests are so friendly particularly those who have been going year after year. We are definitely going back.
Book it now!!"

We Will Be Back
"This without doubt the best hotel we have been to for a holiday. The management and staff are superb. The rooms are kept immacuatly clean. The food is brilliant. We could not find fault with anything. I only booked this holiday after reading comments left by others and we were not dissapointed.

Costas Golden Beach is perfect
"You could not ask for more. A friendly family. Excellent food. The beach is just across a quiet road. No air conditioning, but you can hire a fan. They have mosquito netting on the doors so you can sleep with the doors open on to the verandah. Nice pool. Beautifully kept gardens by Dina (mother). Disco by Spiros and Dimitri (son and dad), sport on large screens by Spiros who loves it (but it does not intrude if you are not interested). Reception by Anastasia (daughter) and Dina and Dimitri. The remainder of the staff are all lovely too. Your bags will be taken to your room and you will be met off the bus - they come to you, and not you to them. Marvellous.
There is some night life in this quiet resort if you go looking for it, but there is always some sort of entertainment in the hotel as well.
FREE hot and ice cold water - what a bonus. And a washing line too. We must just persuade Dimitri to buy a guest washing machine and we could stay there for ever!
Go on, book it now!

best holiday ever
"We had a very relaxing time, food excellent, , room spotless. No TV in room made you relax and enjoy the peace (there are big screens in hotel for those sport addicts). Pool just right, enough sunbeds and parasols. Not many shops locally, visited Albania glad we did it, also Island Tour very informative. Can't wait to go back another year."

Another fabulous Holiday at Costas Golden Beach
"Absolutely perfect. Great family run hotel with the same staff (who have been there for years), which speaks volumes! Wonderful quiet beach front location, spectacular views of the surrounding hills, great walks (short through to long) available if you that is something you enjoy.
Our 2nd holiday here, and the recent bathroom upgrades have definately moved "CGB" up a level.
Agios Georgios is a very quiet resort so if you want a hectic night life with disco's etc its not going to be for you, and you are not for Agios Gergios!. There are a few tavernas with good menus within easy walking distance of the hotel, and the food in the hotel is very good too.
Its got everything we want and we will be back! "
