Messonghi Beach Resort, Corfu, Greece

Messonghi Beach Resort Hotel Corfu Greece Exploring

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I finally have internet wahoo! It's been such a pain not having any, and I know it's such a silly thing but it's crazy how dependent we all are on technology etc. I wanted to share with you all some photos from my recent holiday to Corfu. I went with mum and we had a lovely time and it was so nice to sit and relax and do nothing for a week :)

We booked a veryyy last minute holiday through Travel Republic. We booked it Saturday evening and left Monday morning haha! I was actually really impressed with the flight, we flew with Small Planet Airways and I was surprised that we got food on it. On the way there it was a morning flight so we got Breakfast which included eggs, sausages, hash browns and beans, there was also some fruit, crackers and dairylea cheese and a little orange juice! So much! They brought round little breads and they also offered drinks, the selection wasn't huge but they had champagne which I thought was so weird! As well as like water, orange juice, tea and coffee. After breakfast they brought round a hot towel and then closer to arrivals they brought round hard boiled sweets. I was very pleasantly surprised. On the way back it was more dinner, so there was chicken with vegetables and a sticky toffee pudding and instead of champagne they offered wine :)

We stayed at Messonghi Beach Resort and the hotel was actually quite nice, it was a 3 star hotel but it had everything that we needed and it was clean which I think is really important. The decor was a bit basic but we didn't mind as it's not a priority really and we thought it was good value for your money. The resort was also huge! We weren't expecting it to be so big! There were a few swimming pools and it was right on the beach. We also opted for all inclusive so we ate loads and our drinks were included :) There was also entertainment in the evenings which were good most nights. The only things that I'd say could be better was that you have to pay to use their WiFi and you have to pay to use the sunloungers on the beach whereas the ones at the pool are free so we just laid there and then walked over for a dip in the sea :)

One day we decided to get the bus to Corfu town. We got a green bus from outside our hotel and the journey was around 45 minutes, then we explored town and hopped on the bus back :) We visited the fortress and walked through the marketplaces and basically explored the whole town which was quite cool :) Annoyingly as we got to the fortress below it started raining :') Then when we finally climbed to the top it stopped XD It was still pretty cool though :)

As we went at the end of September the weather was still pleasant but a bit on the cooler side. It was around 27C I think but it did rain for a few days, typical! Haha! There were huge thunderstorms which were cool but scary. But we managed to get some sunbathing in anyway. Apparantly Corfu is a very green island as it rains a lot :') Have you ever been before? :)

  27. Hopefully you Internet will work now well ... my husband and I have been to Corfu in 2012 and I learnt this island to know as very lovely. But looks like you took much better pictures than we :) Thanks for sharing as thanks to you now I remembered again on this holiday.
