The Odysseus has most of the things you'd expect in a hotel at this price [we went in autumn on a good-value last-minute deal] and is friendly and well-situated.
What makes it stand out are the outstanding views, from the pools and public areas and - worth paying extra for - the sea-view rooms.
We were on a B&B deal so cannot comment on the evening meals, though the breakfasts were pleasant enough, with fine Greek yogurt and wonderful local honey. Lunch by the very pleasant pool was excellent value and served by lovely staff. A ten minute walk brings you to a range of tavernas of varying price and quality - something for all tastes.
Buses stop by the hotel to take you to Corfu Town - well worth a visit - and to other parts of this beautiful island. If you're fit, there are good walks in the area, some of them on the steep side as this is the mountainous part of the isalnd.
Unluckily, we had several days of wind and rain during our stay, which meant no boats trips around the various interlinked bays of Paleokastritsa. A pity, as when the sun's out the blue bays are a delight.
The friendliness of the staff in the hotel was matched by that of the local people we met in tavernas, bars and shops, though it's fair to say we were there off-season.
I would happily stay at the Odysseus again, at the right price, in this beautiful part of Corfu.
