There is always something going on in the two bars.. films, footie, pool table etc.  loads of book swapping places, some have games..darts in the Rainbow (ask Eggy) or you can have a nice drink/meal in any sea front bar/taverna and enjoy it all anyway.  It is a very quiet resort, there isnt much entertainment when it rains so you might want to take your own cards/games/dvd player in case. 
If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

A brolly is a good idea... I didnt think I needed it and left it behind... I took a kagool but Mike said no... we wont need it, didnt even take a jumper....  He ended up with a cold, coughing like mad, had too wear two tee shirts and another short sleeve shirt on top.. should have listened to me I think.  Cant believe its 30 degrees today though.  when the sun comes out it is still hot though.

Stuck in your studio can be difficult, so take a Walkman if you're into music or a DVD player with your favourite progs, or a laptop like we had and use it to play anything you like including downloaded progs from BBC iPlayer. Have your favourite tipple on hand, and make babies. It isn't the water..........

But in truth there is always someone, something you can do, some activity that will get you past the very "English" weather which is quite rare. It is not the same and never will be. Rhodes offers 360 days of sunshine but Arillas offers life, friendship and joy. Go and get it!

As someone who doesn't like sitting in a bar all day I prefer to take games, books, crossword puzzles, sudoku etc with me for rainy days.
Personally I don't agree that rain in Corfu is better then rain in the UK as I can find much more to do at home than on holiday. Also with a bored eight year in tow rainy days on holiday can be quite tedious. After all, one of my main reasons for going to Corfu is to get a bit of sunshine.

Jen and my perspective comes from the kids being 27. I really understand the young offspring being bored. But somehow, Jen and me find a lot of people and things to do when it does rain. Could be in Rhodes where it is sunny 360/365 days, but we would not be "family." Arillas gives us so much more
