Benitses was a little too lively for some of us a few years ago, but it now seems to offer a more family atmosphere with a good variety of restaurants and tavernas. If you're looking for something a bit quieter without having to go all the way across the island, one day you could head south a bit to Mesoghi, as far south of the big hotel as you can get. You can have dinner right on the seashore, so relaxing at sunset (my favourite places are Memories and Bacchus). Go a bit further south to Boukari for an even less touristy experience.
Of course I enthusiastically endorse the idea of a trip into Corfu town, day or evening. It's easy from Benitses. If you like the Achillion you might also enjoy touring the Palace in town, as well as the Old Fortress which both have spectacular views out over the water.
I hope you both have a wonderful time in Corfu and return sooner next time.
Excellent advise, thanks so much.
Have also looked into Kavos, even though we are real party poopers would love to see if its as wild as Playa De Las Americas in Tenerife....
We probably won't go back to Corfu as he doesn't like to do a destination more than once, which is why I really want to make the best of this trip.
