“Lovely hotel and lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Really great hotel. Room spacious and well appointed with a good sized balcony. Really nicely decorated and very clean. Fantastic pool area with lots of loungers and seats. Other communal areas inside the hotel were great too. Everything seemed of really good quality. Buffet breakfast offered a lot of choice (hot and cold) although things did run out. However, the friendly staff were always happy to replenish when asked.
All the other staff were lovely too. It was my partner's birthday during our stay and although we hadn't mentioned this they had obvioulsy picked it up from his registration card. They left a gargeous cake in the fridge for us. A really lovely gesture.
The walk from the hotel into town is only about 5 minutes along a reasonably busy road but it is lit at night so it's really not a major issue. Gouvia itself is quite small but enough there in terms of restaurants and bars. The 9 Muses restaurant was fantastic. Amazing food. Don't bother with the Vergina unless you like bad service and mediocre food. Should have known to walk away when we were greeted with a "nice to see you, to see you nice" and a "lovely jubbly" from the Greek waiter as we walked in!!
If you are in Corfu town in the evening go to the open air bar on the top floor of the Cavaleiri Hotel. Fastastic views over the fort and the sea as well as the mountains to the north of the island. A real find.

What a fantastic hotel, the hotel is elegant and the staff wonderful. The hotel is spotless and has an air of class and relaxation and yet the children are made wonderful welcome. The pool is beautiful and water gushes from Greek urns and gives feel of decadence!
I have hade a wonderful stay and also our daughter and grand children stayed. This hotel is fantastic, if you are coming to corfu this is a must!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

We have just returned from a week's stay at this delightful hotel. It has been recently refurbished, we booked B&B terms ( but you can book half board) and stayed in one of the junior suites at the rear of the hotel on a special tripadvisor deal. Our room also had a view of the pool and Mount Pantokrator, well sort of, on a clear day. The room and the fittings were definitely up to the luxury standard this hotel is aspiring too, air conditioned, which was temperature controlled, maid service every day, fresh towels every second day. Beautifully cleaned rooms and bathrooms.
We are not great fans of self service breakfast and it was a bit quirky, but the greek omelettes are made fresh and are highly recommended, you must request them though. Coffee out of a machine and watered down orange juice a definite minus point though.
Staff were really smiley and helpful, Caramella at reception was great, a fountain of knowledge with pretty decent English too.
Let's not forget the lovely gardens with a great pool and infinity jacuzzi, be careful when stepping up into the jacuzzi area, it really could do with an extra step in and out as well as a hand rail. The Debono family have something special here, lets hope it can maintain the very high standards it has set itself

Room Tip: The walk from the hotel to Gouvia town for meals etc takes about 10-15 mins it is not well lit, so a...

My partner and I have just completed our one-week stay at the Art Hotel Debono.
Our double room was spacious, clean and had a lovely balcony view overlooking the gorgeous pool. The pool itself was one of the hotel's greatest attributes; it was large, clean and well-kept, surrounded by lots of comfy sunbeds.
We paid for breakfasts and dinners in advance and the food was of high quality. Served as a buffet, there was a wide variety of foods to choose from and staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The only minor downside of this hotel was the location. While there are a number of lovely beaches within walking distance of the hotel, Corfu Centre was five miles away. Nevertheless, there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants in close proximity to the hotel.
Overall our stay was very enjoyable and we would happily stay here again.

Arrived very late at night.Welcome was very good as we were very tired and needed some sleep.First impressions were a lovely modern hotel with lots of character set in its own lush ground's. Rooms very modern,clean and comfortable however the mattress was a little to firm for our tastes,but never mind.
The staff and management very helpful and friendly. Arranged car hire and taxis for us and gave us lots of local info.
We are very happy to recommended this hotel to fellow travelers

Stayed for a week the hotel is realy nice it's modern it's very clean and the staff couldn't be nicer BUT the wifi is terrible which isn't very handy and to get from the hotel to the beach/bars/restraunts you have to walk up a very busy road that has no path so cars are like a foot away from you and they dnt slow down and at night after a few wines u have to be VERY careful apart from that ace!

We were staying at the Kontokali Spa hotel, which is supposedly a 5 star hotel. However, we were so disappointed with their rooms, that we checked out and got a room at Debono instead. I'm so glad we moved as it made our Corfu experience so much more enjoyable.
The Debono hotel has been recently refurbished and the room we stayed in was lovely, with a modern fully functioning bathroom. It is not a massive hotel, with lots of facilities, but the pool area was really nice, the hotel was clean and the gardens well maintained.
We did not dine in the hotel, but the dining area was clean, modern and free from cats! The breakfast was good, with a variety of hot and cold dishes on offer. And the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Carmela for helping us find a room at such short notice.
