The Blue Diamond Apartments are located directly on the sea front, and are a well maintained complex situated on 300m from the centre of the resort. However, it maintains that quiet ambience for that relaxing holiday. All rooms are decorated in the Greek fashion, and have Air Conditioning, and Safe Deposit Boxes. Deposits maybe required for these services. Accommodation is for two, but can occupy a small single bed for a child upto 12 years.

According to other users, this complex is a very friendly family atomosphere, where you are met on arrival. The complex is very clean, and services are second to none, and the accommodation offers all normal amenities. However, this complex is apparently a considerable distance from the beach and the resort centres.

I hope this information is in some way helpful to you to make your decision. If your require anymore information please do get back to me and I will help further.

Yeiamas, Chris

Hi there, I really appreciate your post, thanks very much, could not find the George apartments anywhere.

Am really surpised to find that the Star studios have gone up 50pp since last night !!

Is this usual ??

Anyway thanks to your review of the George apartments we have discarded it as would rather be on a bit of a bigger site so as to meet other people and have a bit more of an atmosphere.

Do you know whether most of your users book through Libra and Olympic as these seem to be the most financially competitive ??

Once again many thanks for taking the time to reply and searching out the George apartments for me.

Dawn, I do not quite understand your question. The George Studios I have posted are those situated in St. Georges South. They have recently been refurbished, so may appear different to what you might have seen.

Tractor Girl, my pleasure. People book through a variety of different agencies. Some on package deals through such companies as Libra and Olympic, some through Thomson and Thomas Cook. Some prefer to a DIY holiday where they find the accommodation, and book it, and then take a flight only. Can work out cheaper sometimes. There are some Corfu companies, who will book everything for you. The choices are numerous, and it is an individual decision.

Prices do vary according to season. May will definately be slightly cheaper than June, and they normally change on the first Monday of the month. You can have a holiday in May or October for a couple of hundred pounds or just over, rising to more than double that in the summer months.

If there is anything else I can help you with do let me know.


Yeiamas, Chris

Hi Dawn.

Because of the fact that the apartments are located on the beach, and the fact that they are apartments rather than studios or hotels, is the reason why they do not advertise a swimming pool. I can find not reference to a swimming pool at all. Reviews are about in small numbers, and come with recommendations. Again I must reiterate, the accommodation and holiday you choose can not be defined by others thoughts, it is really what you make it. I have said before, I stayed in a hotel in Gouvia that had really bad reviews which we found after booking and paying. Without a doubt, this was one of our best holidays, and places to stay. So reviews to me mean nothing.

Yeiamas, Chris
