Sounds like a good switch to me. You got your first choice back again too.

 If you staying at Golden Nests, you have the choice if several pools that you may use other than the one in your package. The only thing the other locations ask is that you buy your food and drinks whilst using their pool. Try visiting the Splash Pool near the bus stop, great location and great food.

!!!update!!! I have cancelled the room in Benitses and booked the Golden Nests in Agios Gordios, managed to book for 2 adults and 10 year old £514 total! Hope I've done the right thing, this one has a pool we can use next door, the main thing was the sea view!

Well a good choice, it is very nice now that Kavos take most of the teenagers? It is also not far from Messonghi/Moraitika I'm sure you will have a great time!! Yamas :)

First of all I would like to thank everyone for all your help and suggestions. I have finally booked somewhere. I really wanted a quick transfer time in the end so this is what ruled the decision. Unfortunately most of the places you recommended are fully booked. Agios Gordios looks amazing, but could not find anything within my budget and a lot are booked. So I have had to book Benitses and no one has even mentions this ! ha ha. I am just so happy to be back in Greece that if I have my Greek salad, kalamari, tzatziki and of course Gyros, that is me sorted. Once again thank you and Kala nikta

I am another one throwing in Agios Gordios. It offers all that you have mentioned.

Colin. When are you visiting in August?

I've been put on a package transfer that took over four hours as it went up and round the east coast. Always get a direct transfer.

I would also suggest Sidari with a pre-teen in tow, though it's a longish transfer, and I can't say I've been everywhere. At least be sure you go straight there instead of a long and winding drop-off. Nice long beaches, low fairly safe but interesting cliffs to explore, nice bars and grills and a small amusement place in town, more traditional restaurants further out. The Orchard, out to the west, and El Greco, on the east beach road stand out. I've heard good things about Paradise, and can certainly recommend the Moussaka if not the rooms! For small, quiet family surroundings, I can recommend Monika and Jasmine (via Booking. com) Apartments off the same eastern beach road.

(Though my personal preference is Paleokastritsa, but its awfully quiet after dark of late).

With 10 year old definitely Sidari. My children are teenagers now but this is where they were always happiest and more for them to do.

Been to a fair few places on Corfu since 1991 we are off again this year staying at Paradise apartments. Lovely.

Love Life, Love Corfu!

The trouble is there are just to many beautiful resorts in Corfu, I think people "gravitate" to the one that they visited first time? It happened to me Messonghi/Petriti, but which ever one you chose I just know you will have a great time and when back home great memories!!

Hi Steph, that's great information, thank you. Searching now for accommodation, I've narrowed the search to this area and agios gordios, not having long transfers for either of the two resorts is a bonus.

Hi

I have been going to Messonghi for 15years and love it, the prices in the bars/tavernas are excellent, my husband and I get a two course meal with wine for approx €20/25 euros, the beaches are lovely and the people superb and so welcoming. We stay at the Kerkyra Island apartments, we book through Olympic and the rooms are really clean, spacious and excellent for self catering, they also have a lovely clean swimming pool.
Hope you enjoy whatever you decide to book.

 I will be staying there in August, it will be my 6th visit there. They have a weekly BBQ and also a Pizza evening. The food is good and reasonably priced. It is a 5 minute gentle stroll down to the beach. The main street to the beach is lined with first class taverna's. If you like Mexican food as an alternative, there is a location for you. Lots of locations in the resort hold themed evenings, local musicians, Greek Dancing, Cocktail Bar and of course the famous "Robins Nest" for a late night drink & music. Hope that you get a good price from the Tonas family and they are able to fit you in. For a virtual trip round the resort check out   http://www.agiosgordios.corfu360.net/

 Yammas, Colin.
