“Excellent Easter vacations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Been there for first time for four days/three nights during the Orthodox Easter holidays (3rd -6th of May 2013).

Pros: very good room, excellent service and staff (didn't had time to view/use the hotel facilities, e.g. the spa or the swimming pool). Very nice Easter lunch (Sunday noon) with local dance and music band
Cons: difficult wi-fi reception in the room

Overall: will go again in the future

Great place to get away and relax! Fantastic views of the sea. We stayed in a villa which had breathtaking views. We visited during Greek Easter and had holiday favors placed in the room (candles, tsourki, clay pot, red eggs). Friendly service from every aspect. Breakfast buffet was quite extensive and good quality. We ate at the Aristos restaurant which was amazing! The food was exquisite and the view again breathtaking the service impeccable. The sea was cold and we did not swim, but the beach was beautiful! A fantastic large pool is also available.

This hotel is claimed to be the most luxurious hotel in Corfu island, and during the high season lots of rich Russians will stay here. The hotel definitely has unrivalled sea view with a private beach and also great swimming pool that my 4-year-old loved. The buffet breakfast (usually included in the room rate) has great selection of food, and all servers were courteous and helpful. If you stay in one of the bungalows (some friends stayed there) not in the main building, there might be bugs/mosquitoes in summer time. The main problem with this hotel is it's far away from the city center. Although the hotel provides free shuttle to the city center, the shuttle service is infrequent. We took taxi a few times but the taxi was expensive and the taxi driver weren't always honest (charged different prices for different people). If you walk around the hotel in the nearby area (15 minutes walk), there are some restaurants and small convenience stores. Food is OK in those restaurants and price is much more reasonable. Almost all restaurants we tried in Corfu had very slow service. The hotel room has decent size with a balcony, though the furnishings were a bit old. Overall we enjoyed our stay with this hotel.

I had stayed at Grecotel Imperial Corfu - Kommeno Bay at the end of October 2012. The paradise beach is wonderful and if you like swimming in the sea it’s perfect. Although it was end of October, sea is warm and very calm and it helped that we had perfect weather. The hotel also has a lovely pool area for those that prefer to lounge by the pool. The hotel is positioned on a very quiet part of the island but that makes the hotel far from the city.
The food was excellent and the choice amazing, you will find excellent Mediterranean food and fish at the open buffet restaurant. If you want to eat outside, than you will not able to find because there is no restaurants /tavernas within walking distance. Also there is no supermarket close to the hotel. All this meant that one was locked in to the hotel and its expensive drinks, A La Carte restaurants etc. If you go to a 5 star hotel you expect 5 star prices although the local wines are reasonable.
You definitely need to rent a smallest possible car so that you will also travel around the island to see the beautiful beaches at the western part of the island.
The location of the hotel is like a paradise, but the rooms need renovation and TV is a very old model. There is also no tea facility at the rooms.

Have just returned after spending a week at this hotel and the setting is without doubt the best on Corfu. The private beach setting is wonderful and if you like swimming in the sea its perfect - it was warm and very calm and it helped that we had perfect weather. The hotel also has a lovely pool area for those that prefer to lounge by the pool The food was excellent and the choice amazing - we would definitely go back. It has a charming elegance and our room was fine but gree that the TVs could do with updating but you don't go on holiday to watch TV! The hotel is tucked away on a very quiet part of the island but that is part of its charm. Not a hotel for party animals and those that like to spend their days drinking as the drinks are quite expensive but if you go to a 5 star hotel you expect 5 star prices although we found the local wine to be reasonable. All in all though this is a fab hotel and well worthy of a return visit.

We stayed at Grecotel imperial at the end of September 2012. The hotel has nice location, sand beach, well maintained territory, but the rooms clearly need renovation: TV is old (not flat, no HBO or FOX channels) furniture is tired, but the hotel left very good impression overall - this is the best hotel on Corfu, I've seen them all during our trips around the island. You definetely need to rent a car (take the smallest possible) and travel around the island to see the beautiful beaches at the western part of the island. Also rent a boat at Paleokastrica beach - nice views of the lagoons and rocks are guaranteed, you will also get a lot of fun. There are plenty of taverns around the island, so try them instead of eating expensive food at the hotel. Apovrado, Panorama and Pelagos are 15 minutes walk up to the hill. Average dinner is 45EUR for 2 persons (with local wine)

This is a 5 star Hotel situated on headland at Kommeno Bay. A lovely spot, The location is however a little out of the way. No restaurents /tavernas within walking distance, or should I say none that I discovered. Also no access to any supermarkets close to hand.
All this meant that one was locked in to the hotel and its expensive drinks ,A La Carte restaurents etc.
Whilst the Hotel is impressive and comfortable in many ways it really is let down when it comes to the actual accommodation. The Room furniture was really quite obsolete and not what one would expect in a 5 star hotel.
Tea making facilities were available ,but only on request, then you had to provide your tea/milk etc.!! Not 5 star service
I found the staff helpul and cooperative until it came to checking out. I asked to retain the room until 5pm on the say of departure, having been advised by Thomson's rep that no charge would be levied. As it happened I received an account for 50Euros. This I challenged but was advised that it was the normal rate. Only later did I discover that if the Hotel can retain the room for you it is free up until 3 pm. So I paid 50 Euros for 2 hours
Despite this it was a good place to stay , but I have been in far better 5 star hotels./
