We live on Corfu during the summer months, but still like to enjoy romantic weekends away. The Defino Blu Hotel, has just secured a very special place in our hearts.
The booking and pre-trip admin was organised admirably via email by Yvette, who greeted us by name when we arrived in reception. A few formalities later and we were sipping a very welcome drink by the pool, whilst our bags were taken to the room.
Everything about this hotel shouts “caring family business”, whether you are a single traveller, a family (with children of any age) or a couple, this hotel could not look after you better.
Breakfast is a relaxed buffet, with more than enough food for any appetite and taste. The pool area is clean, with sun beds and squashy cushions a plenty, whilst Christian at the pool bar is on hand to provide you with drinks throughout the day (up until midnight if you have the stamina!).
The beach at Agios Stefanos is sandy and clean, with the bit in front of the hotel, swept daily by conscientious staff. Mango, the beach bar, is a lovely place to enjoy a snack (or more substantial) lunch.
Dinner at the hotel is slightly more formal, with precision waiting and excellent food (half board gives 5 courses). The wine list is good, with lots of realistically priced choices.
The hotel faces due west....... which means that dinner comes with the very best natural floor show..... the sunsets are just spectacular!
Our very reluctant check out was smooth and uneventful. Costas, the charming owner ensured a personal fond farewell.
