Maybe British people like the ambience and the food, but not Austrian people.
We meet in Cavo Bianco other Austrian families, which also hate the holiday.
Our travel office didn't tell us that the beach at cavo bianco is damn terrible.
Maybe other people like this holiday but we do not...
I am sorry but thats the truth, for younger people without families I wouldn't advise cavo bianco!!!

The dining room was air conditioned, clean and well staffed. The food was good and plenty to offer for both adults and children.
The pool was superb, with three differing depth pools for all strengths of swimmers.There was no fighting over sunbeds and free access to umbrellas.
The staff were superb and although entertainment was repetitive over two weeks, there was plenty to encourage everyones involvement. The bars throughout the day were well staffed and very rarely did you have to wait.
A superb hotel for families only, we did visit Kavos by taxi but it was disgusting and a louts resort - dont let this put you off this hotel.
I would visit again.

It would not take much to make this a great place to stay. The rooms were quite spacious but the bathroom was tiny and in desperate need of decoration. The shower wasn't up to much and the same can be said about the toilet!! Although the maids came to clean our apartment six times during our week's stay our bathroom towels were only changed once during that time as were our bed sheets! Not impressed with that.
If you stay all inclusive you are not provided with towels for your sunbeds so remember to take your own!
I would rate this hotel more 3 star than 4.

I know it was the end of the season but there wasn't a great deal to do around the area so booked on a few excursions. I can definitely recommend the Greek Night, Simply Corfu, Megaday and Corfu by night, well worth the money but beware of the Myths and Legends Tour. A lot of money 69 euros per person but no Greek Mythology in sight.

Apartments were very clean and cosy, although the kitchen was no use as it was very basic. The kids had proper beds not pull out sofa beds that we normally get abroad.
Pool was well maintained and easy to tell where the deep end was. kids club was excellent (Jodie Podie and Dizzy Debs were 1st class).
Some of the guests were a bit rough and ready but you don't need to have anything to do with them.
A great holiday had by all!!! Will return next year

As for the actual site, wow! The pool was giant and not just a boring square, it was a sort of racing "track", shallow at one end, and extremely deep at the other. The pool bar offered a wide range of lunchs/snacks, and the all-inclusive drinks wristbands really were a great deal. (I am sure that soon Thomson will realise they are losing money from it [because it makes you drink more!] and will stop it) So make sure you take advantage of the wristbands for however long you are going. Remember- Childrens wristbands are cheaper! Every Monday the site hold a BBQ, worth every penny. You get two plates, one for salad, one for meat and hot food. Go up as much as you like :D. The restaurant on site is also extremely good. It offers a wide range of choice and is probably the best joint best place we ate on holiday (Sokratis is the other great place! 5 minute walk via the road, 1-2 minute walk via the beach). The site restaurant is slightly more expensive than the restaurants in St. Peters (fully expected) but the all-inclusive drinks can be used here (as well as the pool bar and the evening bar) and so the price balances out.
The Kids Club was for under 12's, and so not used but us, but all the children seemed to fully enjoy themselves at it. We also did not use the tennis courts or play areas, but all looked to be of a high standard. I suggest that playing tennis should be done in the evening, or early morning (despite this being the most popular time) because it is too hot all of the other times. The Animation Team (the entertainment team) were extremely helpful, funny, fun and held activities in during the day, and did shows and entertainment at night. Some of the day time activities included: Beach Football/Volleyball, Water Volleyball, Killer Pool, Quizes, Kids Cabaret Rehersals and Beach Bowles. In the evening they put on various Cabaret Shows including a modern one, a musical one, and "oldie" one and a Las Vagas one. They also did Kids Fun Hour, Kids Cabaret, You Bet!, Backwards Bingo, Free Greek Night, Lucky 13(simple game and someone won 950 euros when we were staying there!), Disco Party Song Thing, Family Fortunes, The Generation Game and Quizes, plus many more things. (Thanks to Alan, Gina, Leanne, Darren, Lucy and Jane for all of this!)
The reception area is always open (and I do mean 24/7!), it has 3 computers (I suggest using the 2 where you have to put coins in, don't use the one of the far right, just don't!), all with internet access, games machines, Toilets, plenty of tables and chairs and a Pool Table.
The supermarket has all of you need, which is water, milk, coffee and tea, cereals, snacks and main meal things and sweets. It also has a rather large selection of gifts available, including pictures, shot glasses, jewlery, ornemants and greek sweets. The staff are friendly in the supermarket, which you can also buy inflatables and balls from for the pool. (Make sure you check the boxes next to the stage first! People who leave leave behind there: left over suncream, books, magazines, inflatables/balls, games and other various things).
Cavo Bianco is only 3 stars, but my golly gosh it was fantastic!
