A few good points and a few not so good points. Firstly, the good points. The food is wide and varied and overall there is an excellent variety of choices on a day to day basis. The apartments were clean and tidy with catering facilities, ie fridge, microwave, etc. and local TV (You can pay €7 a day to upgrade to a full Sky Package for your room), if you wish. Fully controllable air conditioning too and the beds changed daily with fresh towels too, so no real problems with the accommodation. The pool and bar areas are good too and the all inclusive package runs until 11pm with local drinks and snacks all day. So, all in all, quite good eh? Now a couple of not so good points The location, although on the beach, is a little isolated. St. Peters has a few deserted pubs etc, mainly due to the all inclusive nature of Cavo Bianco. Kavos is around 25mins walk or three mins in a taxi (costing only around €6 one way) but unless you are the teenage party going type, Kavos is just boom boom city with alcohol a la Faliraki, Aya Napa etc. If you're over 30, you're really going to feel very old in Kavos I'm afraid. And, that's about it for location. The local bus service is practically non existent and takes around one and a half hours to do the 30 mile journey to Corfu Town. In Cavo Bianco Village itself, the entertainment is almost exclusively aimed at children. For families with young kids, it'll be great, as the entertainment team really do work hard at amusing the kids. If, like us, you are in a group of four adults, it's a bit like Butlins from the 80s. Except for one night when they did have Greek Dancers and another night when they put on a Memories show which was really good. Apart from that, it doesn't have much in the way of adult stuff. We were there for a seven day holiday and it was about three days too long because it got a bit boring. So, if you're looking for that holiday with a nice town to wander round at night, with some nice market stalls, and some reasonable entertainment within your resort, give this a miss. If you're easily pleased and only want to lie at a pool or on the beach or get drunk on unheard brands of Vodka and Gin, then this could be for you. Needless to say, we won't be returning to the South of Corfu - We'll stick to Sidari in the North or somewhere near the Capital, Corfu Town.

You arrive at Corfu airport, normally during the early hours, and you start by trying to locate your transfer rep amidst the myraid of other reps. Once found you take a taxi or bus ride for the next hour and a half to the complex. Buses are not allowed into the complex so you get dropped off, luggage and all, on the road outside. You are met by a security officer who takes away your passports (they get put in a safe) then escorts you to your holiday abode. The food was varied to suite all needs but sharing it with the flies was a little off putting!! The restaurant staff were a little too efficent at clearing up as they hovered beside you waiting to pounce on your empty plates. The pool bar provided plenty of drinks to quench the thirst as long as you were prepared to run the wasps gauntlet!! The pool, beach and sea were ideal for that chill out experience. The entertainment team worked extremely hard to keep the younger ones occupied and provided an equal effort for the evening adult entertainment. Well done to them all. The rotation of new arrivals helped to continually stimulate the evening entertainment. I concur with other comments that the all inclusive element of this complex has a detrimental effect on other St Peters catering businesses and isn't as good as it seems. Watered down cocktails had a sobering effect on those intent on over indulgance which many may view as a good thing. Walking to Kavos (Blackpool on a bad day) is quite dangerous to say the least - keep a careful eye on your children. There appears to be no rules for driving on their extremely narrow roads. Take a taxi - this is the safer and sensible option. The local people all very friendly and helpful. You get what you pay for and as such the holiday is good value for money.

Just got back from Kavos and had an amazing time with two of my friends. Cavo Bianco was great although I felt that the all inclusive package is not what is made out to be. The package stops at 11 which is the time we would normally be going out. There are also a limited amount of drinks on the deal. Snacks stop at half 5 and they do stop, we went at 5.35 and could not get anything, also the snacks are ice cream and sandwiches, not a wide choice either. Breakfast was the best meal as dinner and lunch consisted of spaghetti bolognaise every day! I highly recommend Tex Mex to everyone... it's delicious! The rooms were okay, as said before though the air con does not reach upstairs. The pool is great and right on the beach, possibly the most shallow beach ever! The nightlife is crazy and just what I was hoping for, taxi's are only €6 into Kavos, the walk is about 20 minutes and I wouldn't recommend to walk it at night! Reception would ring a taxi for us which was very helpful. All in all the hotel was good but i'd just like to warn people about the all inclusive package before they go, rather than asking for drinks that you can't get!

This was my 2nd visit back to these apartments in St. Peters, Lefkimi (just above Kavos), and my husbands and childrens 1st! We had a great week. The weather was great, topping 33 deg, for May thats pretty good going! The apartments are well set out, we had 2 bathrooms (though one big one would have been better) and 2 bedrooms, a kitchen area and a dining area. The pool is large and great for the children, (though cold!!) the beach is fantastic, lovley and sandy and clean, and best of all, right next to the pool!!! . The waters here are calm and knee deep for about 50m out too! The on site restaurant in nice, convenient and not too expensive. There are some loverly tavernas just outside the complex too. Koko fresh was delicious (dont be put off by the name!) And I can highly recommend Pefkos in Kavos too! Gorge chicken Kokkinisto! The entertainment team did a great and exhausting job of keeping eveyone happy, the kids thought they were great, they always had a trail of about 10 children following behind them wherever they went! If you are a family, looking for a nice safe and enjoyabel base in a quiet location, but not too isolate (6 euros in a taxi to Kavos) then this has got to be the place for you! Overall a fab holiday, see you next year guys. Tour Operator: Thomson
