Where to stay / Thomas Bay

Hi can someone advise if the frogs are at the side of the hotel all season? We normally go in June and they can be quite noisy. Not going until September this year.

We’ve never stayed there, but are considering it for next year. It’s slightly further up the hill from the Sunset, and on the other side of the road. Looks lovely, and will be sheltered from the wind, too.

Where to stay / Hotel Olga
« Last post by pottonroy on May 20, 2018, 02:06:09 PM »
Hi everyone, have booked recently for our two weeks in San Stef but left it late this year as I've recently had a hip replacement and didn't want to book until I knew it had gone ok. This meant we couldn't get our usual package to Little Prince so have booked accommodation and flights separately. We are due to stay in Hotel Olga but I don't recall seeing this so wondered if anyone can give me any info about it. I get the impression that it is somewhere near the now closed Sunset tavern and fairly near the beach am I right? If anyone has stayed there I'd like to hear their opinions of it. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Just back from a week in AS.  Apart from a rainy Tuesday this week, very pleasant weather.  We have been in May before but this time things didn’t appear to wind up until this coming weekend.  There are still a few places to open, such as Beer O’clock, which looks like there may be life around 19th.  Surprised that Thomas Bay still looks closed. Nothing much changes.  With things not really getting going until mid-May it does reduce the pay days.  June, however, is giving most of the locals optimism with good occupancy.
 
Some Tavernas are not putting out Olive oil on the tables following some stupid government edict but it appears that the ruling is not clear and many are ignoring.  Those that are following the rule charge 50 cents for a small bottle!  Salt, Pepper and Mayo next?

The Pontoons are taking up quite a bit of the car park at present but should be moved in a few days and the stream still needs straightening out to its summer flow.  There is not much water coming down the stream and I fear for the terrapins because I didn’t see any about.

A bit concerned that the rubbish is already building up driving to Corfu town.  The village looks fine but there are a few piles building up near Avliotes.
We look forward to early July when the AS machine will be rolling.

Hey Gavlos! 
Have you planned your trips yet?  We've done a few really good ones!
The Grand Island Tour is fantastic- did it a few years ago but I'm booking it for my mum and dad's birthdays this year as I know they will love it too.
Theo's Boat Trip is awesome for the kids - it's like a family friendly party boat, takes you over to the Greek mainland for an amazing BBQ on the beach with watersports etc. You then get to jump off the boat at a lagoon.  The boat journey is about 1.5 hours there and same back but it's a party atmosphere!!  Theo and Harris (his son) are what makes this trip so special but you have to book it through Thomsons. You can book direct but it ends up costing more for your own transfers.
Paxos and Anti Paxos were fab.
Corfu town by boat in the evening was great.
Hire your own boat from Noula and go round to Paleokastritsa or some of the smaller beaches.
Water Park is good - I didn't but then men and kids in our party did and loved it.
