Best veiw in Kassiopi
"We stayed at Lofos in mid May,we have been to Kassiopi twice before and have always had a fabulous time,this time was no different except for our accommodation,the LOFOS is just gorgeous.They have the best veiw in Kassiopi,the rooms are really spacious and spotlessly clean.the pool area and snack bar are just so well positioned it would be quite easy to sit there all day and admire the stunning veiw.The village it,s self has hardly changed over the years(first time1988)everyone is so friendly and though some of the bars and restaurants have changed hands,the lovely village atmosphere is still there.plenty of places to eat and drink,our favourite was Kostas bar,where they have greek dancing every night thanks to Adonis, Nik,Kostas ,and anyone else who feels like doing their party piece,thoroughly entertaining ."

"These are spacious clean and comfortable apartments. The staff are welcoming & helpful. Large pool & terrace for sunbathing. The views from here are stunning & you can see the coast of Albania. Lofos is in a quiet part of Kassiopi set on a hill side so peace & quiet is a daily pleasure. There is a pool bar serving drinks & snacks & nothing is too much trouble. The bar closes at 7pm so no loud music into the night. Down the hill a max 5 minute walk are bars, tavernas and shops & a pretty harbour. Please try Don's bar not only good home cooked food made by his wife but daily discouted cocktails & sky tv. We loved Lofos apartments so much that we have booked to go back October. Regarding the hill - if you want the location just dig in and take a deep breath the view each morning is stunning"

kassopis best appartments
"all the reviews we read, lead us to these wonderful appartments, the grounds,the pool and the views are brilliant, the management and staff are lovely people,who will do anything to make your holiday just right. the steep hill that gets most mentions is steep,much worse coming back to the appartments than leaving, as it has a gradual climb from the main street, getting steeper the nearer you get. it can be quite exhausting climbing after a day or night out, but once on top at the main pool and appartment area it is well worth it for all the surrounding views. the appartments are very basic, but who goes away to cook any way. the fridge is free and is always on, the only extra cost is the air conditioning, which is well worth it if it is as hot as when we stayed. as the thermomitre went of the scale in the sun., so 5 euros a day 35 euros a week or bargain at 60 euros for a fortnight. the bar is open from 8-8.30 in the morning serving breakfast from cereal, toast and full english breakfast, onto lunches etc including all your drinks till 7.oclock in the evening. having walked around the resort and sampling most bars and restaurants, this is the best place to stay in kassiopi. close to all you need. definatly worth another visit.

Lovely place, Lovely people
"We went for two weeks in late June early July this was our fifth visit to Kassiopi but our first to the Lofus. Have to say they are the nicest we have had fabulous location and very nice staff. The "Hill" is steep but only for the last 50 yards or so I have a heart condition but never had a problem.A couple of down points 1 , the bar closes at 7 oclock which is a pity. 2, the walls are a little thin on some of the apartments,but as it was a grown up crowd when we were there it wasnt a problem. Dont know if this is allowed but if you want lots of info on Corfu and Kassiopi google Agni greece"

"Myself and family have just returned from Kassiopi after a two week stay at the Lofos Apartments and have had a wonderful time from the minute we boarded the plane ( we travelled from East Midlands with BMI)the staff onboard were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival at our apartments, which was in the middle of the night we first encountered the very steep drive and thought what on earth have we come too but on waking the following morning we soon discovered that these well maintained apartments were in a good position for reaching the village and you soon got used to the steep drive! The apartments, pool area and all surrounding areas are very clean and cared for by the lovely owners and their staff and again nothing was too much for them. They were so friendly and we were surprised by how many repeat customers checked in during our stay and as time went by we understood why. Kassiopi itself is a wonderful traditional village with lots of bars and restaurants to choose from - perfect for a family holiday. We ate the most wonderful meals - Greek, Chinese, Mexican and Italian. I can recommend Olympic holidays, the Lofos Apartments and Kassiopi to anyone, this has been one of the nicest holidays we have been on from start to finish. My advice would be if you're thinking of going to Lofos don't hesitate and go, we certainly will be heading back! "

"Our second trip to Corfu & first to Kassiopi. Saw Kassiopi on boat trip some years before & decided we would go for a full stay some time - really pleased we did. Tried to book in Solaris, but full, so went to Lofus - based on mostly good web reviews - turned out to be a great decision. We were told we had inland view, but arrived to find we had probably the best views in the whole block - spacious corner balcony with views out over pool to both the harbour & the other bay - incredible. Apartment (studio) was excellent. Cleaned six times per week. Had everything we needed. Definitely needed the air conditioning, which we found out (a bit late) was available - essential for decent sleep & well worth the reasonable 5 Euro's per day. Only drawback to apartment was cooker which was very limited - though OK for simplest of meals. Pool was first class - poolside bar good - closed early evening, but short walk down hill was Don's - good value & good service (Happy Hour 1 till 7...!) Thoroughly recommend the Lofus - ignore reviews that go on about walk up steep hill - it's only a few yards & the views are well worth the effort (gets rid of a few of the calories heaped on....). Owners & staff were friendly & welcoming - genuinely so. Town centre only a very short & interesting walk away. Afraid we can't understand why everyone raves about Janis's (restaurant) - we preferred the simpler & considerably better value places overlooking the harbour. We hired jeep for three days & saw most of the island - would recommend this to anyone, as it's like having a second holiday on top of the first. Don't worry about the traffic you see on transfer - once you get out & about you find it's much quieter, especially off the major roads. The place is beautiful - also, you can tour the resorts from pool to pool - there are so many places where, if you have a drink at the bar you're welcome to use the pool for a cooling splash - great. Saw all the major places & many are lovely - however, Kassiopi was without doubt our all-round favourite - also, we didn't see any other apartments that we would rather have stayed in than the Lofus. We would go back without hesitation - that said, we've already checked next year's prices & found that the same holiday next year would cost us 50% more than we paid - good grief - fuel costs or not, I really can't see how that sort of escalation is justified. We are looking at booking accommodation & flights separate & direct - with car collected at airport. Anyway, that was the best holiday we can remember for a long, long time (hence all this diatribe......) - Cheers! "

"Hotel Lofos has fantastic views which would be hard to be beaten. These can be viewed from the pool / bar area. Our studio room had inland views. The rooms were cleaned 5/6 times each week, although towels and bedding were not changed this often. The air conditioning in our room did not work well at all and we were charged 35Euro for a week - Cooking facilities are very poor with just two rings - impossible to eat in & cook anything. Be prepared to eat out every day. The hotel offers no facilities other than the pool. Nothing is available for children, there is no games room and no quiz night or anything going on. The bar closed around the pool at 7pm each evening so they are losing out on business here! Be aware if you choose to pay for a safety security box - the room it is in is locked at 8pm each evening. We were caught short with this and were left without money one evening as was another couple we met. We stayed for two weeks and ate extremely well - eating somewhere different each evening but our favourite place was Noufoura which faces the harbour. Recommend the Stiffado!!We met so many lovely people from Ireland/Scotland who had stayed at this hotel 3/4 times previously - so this says what a lovely resort Kassiopi is. - Although many also said they would be unlikely to return next year due to price increases. Costs are pretty much the same as for us in England - but rising fuel costs etc have impacted the cost of everything. We found the holiday very relaxing and really enjoyed our stay. Trips we booked through Cosmic travel - coaches didn't turn up. I'd use other company's if we return again! Jo & Andy."

"A lovely setting with great views from the pool area. Make sure if you book that you do not get rooms 101 or 102. They are dark and dungeon like with no views (except the neighbours washing and huge barking dogs). We asked to change, but the place was full and were told if you book late, you get the worst rooms. I would be ashamed to show people to these rooms. Very basic and stark, even by Greek standards. I blame Olympic for not informing us that we may get the worst rooms."

"Kassiopi has everything to make a Greek Island holiday perfect. A beautiful harbour, breathtaking scenery excellent tavernas, especially Porto. a fun evening at Jasmins and greek dancing. The Lofos hotel apartments is the icing on the cake. Clean modern and a warm welome from Pipitsa and Spiros. also their staff.The main walk to the village is quite gentle for the greek islands however the last bit up the driveway of Lofos is a killer. But what a veiw. Well worth the effort. This was the best holiday ever, can hardly wait to go back."

"Lofos is a great place to stay and we had a wonderful time in Kassiopi. We had to mark it down for two reasons: 1) The walls between apartments are too thin and you could hear everything that next door were saying and the scraping of chairs and beds above was unbearable at times. We were constantly being woken up by our neighbours at 07:00am due to their screaming kid. Not their fault but it was annoying at times. Iâm sure they could also hear what we were saying too. 2) The cooker was rubbish - if youâre intending to cook all the time yourself then this is probably not the place for you! We tried for 1 hour to cook 2 omelettes. After that we ate out all the time - which is fine in Kassiopi as there are numerous places to eat and drink. We made some great friends at Lofo's as mostly all the people who stay there are British. We had some of our friends from home staying in Roda Beach Village and we went there for the day - all I can say is go to Lofos and stay in Kassiopi as the 5 star hotel was not a patch on where we were staying. Our friends also came to Lofos/Kassiopi for the day and they were gutted that they paid so much for their holiday compared to us. Eating out is ideal in Kassiopi - Janis is the best. We anticipated Corfu to be a lot cheaper than the UK but found prices to be on par with London at times! We will be returning! "

"The views down to the harbour are wonderful so try and get a room overlooking the pool on the first/second floor. The owners cant do enough for you and the studios are immaculate. The hotel is on a very step hill however be warned."
