We have been to this hotel many times and have always meant to add a review but never got round to it when we get back home, so we are writing this review sitting on our balcony overlooking the bay and Corfu town.
We are lucky to travel extensively and have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world but for us the Kontokali Bay Hotel has a unique atmosphere, the staff are very professional but also extremely friendly unlike many faceless corporate hotels, many times in our stay we have met the managers of the hotel who regularly wander round engaging in conversations with guests making sure that they are satisfied.
The food in all the restaurants is of a very high standard but for a special meal you must try the Asterias where exquisite food is prepared with passion by chef Spioros Soupionis and served in a romantic candlelit setting overlooking Corfu town, booking is advisable as the restaurant is used by many locals. There is an extensive choice of menu in the buffet restaurant for both breakfast and dinner, lunch at the beach is also buffet style but with additional choice from the barbeque of fresh fish meat and seafood.
Downside for some people may be the location as it is a little bit isolated but we are not looking for busy nightlife, Gouvia and Corfu are both just a short bus or taxi ride away.
Cannot comment on facilities for children but there are families that return each year.
Our only downside is that we fly home in a little over two weeks.
