Recent guest reviews
We booked to go to their 4* sister hotel in Dassia and were upset to be told after booking that it was closed on our dates, we were then overjoyed to be given the 5* Imperial, we had a superb villa that easily slept 4 with its own smooth lawn that was on the edge of the beach, just a 2 minute stroll to the hotel for dining, the villa had 1 large bedroom, 1 large dining room, large Jacuzzi seaview bath, plus 3 showers and wc's. A fridge, plenty of quality indoor and outdoor furniture, 2 large flat screen TV's, beach towels on offer from lifeguards who regularly patrolled the large outdoor pool and the 2 private beaches. Food is fantastic and caters for all tastes vegan-meat etc. The service is excellent especially Maria who organised our Durrell's trips and couldn't do enough to help us. There is a complex of villas at side of hotel some facing the sea and some facing the gardens, I particularly booked a sea view beachside villa and if you want this you must stipulate it. The hotel reception rooms are luxurious, all the hotels rooms have all round sea views. There is a magnificent cordon bleu restaurant and we were given a free voucher for a meal there, food was heavenly. Our son had a private tennis lesson, all types of activities are available, some are free like the poolside pilates. There is a dedicated large tv/games room for younger children. Evening entertainment is subtly enjoyable. At breakfast one morning there was a musician playing a bass sax and it was just delightful to eat on the terrace overlooking the Ionian sea listening to melodic music. The hotel is a very safe place as it is entered through large iron gates and 2 security men check vehicles in and out 24/7. There is also a security guard in the hotel lobby. Staff have little buggies that they drive around the area to clean the villas, and upon arrival we were treated to a ride in one to our villa which was fun. We were given gifts by the hotel on our arrival and departure. We are definitely going back. The only thing I wasn't keen on is that the hotel is a bit isolated and you cannot just walk out to see local villages or shops, however the hotel runs a bus twice a day or you can get a taxi into corfu town which is E25 each way. I didn't know what to do in the area and was embarrassed as I kept having to ask staff what attractions are nearby as there are no leaflets or information in the reception regarding water parks or places of historic interest. The photographer was not a nice person, she kept HARASSING guests to have pictures taken, people were fed up with her, I agreed to have some pictures taken with our 10 year old son and she was very long winded, we wanted our dinner not be pestered by this money hungry person. I tried to tell her the sort of pictures I wanted and she ignored me saying she knows what she wants! She was also tugging and pulling us and speaking quite rudely. I had to ask her to stop touching us! I then saw at the photo booth the dreadful unflattering photo's that this talentless person had taken and they were so horrible I decided not to buy anything. This person then pursued my 10 YEAR OLD SON at breakfast the next day, she then chased me through the hotel and down the steps to my villa demanding to take more pictures! I was very very angry. I told her to her face to leave us alone and that her pictures are terrible. I hope the manager of the hotel reads this and does not employ her again, such a rude aggressive person. My son and I were upset by this football hooligan photographer and also upset that her pictures were rubbish!
Some three years since our last visit, we must say the standards and enjoyment factor have not diminished. Our bungalow accommodation was of quality and well maintained by attentive staff. Our recommendations are based on a quiet, warm holiday with good facilities and numerous small beaches in secluded coves. A shuttle bus service to Corfu town runs twice a day to where you can enjoy narrow winding streets with shops to suit all tastes. There is a health spa with indoor pool, a couple of small shops and a fine main outdoor pool. There are beach/pool bars for drinks and snacks. Guests are welcomed with a cool drink in the beautiful entrance areas before being delivered to your designated bungalow by golf buggy, to be greeted with fruit and wine. As declared in our first review, the extensive gardens are well maintained but do involve many steps and climbing paths. The large well furnished self service dining room serves a diverse range of good food which can on occasion be cool on return to your table. Again however, the attentive, cheerful staff are always on hand with smiles.
Been to the Grecotel yet again, can't get enough of this hotel, if I could afford it would live there for the summer, this occasion had dinner on their yacht which my wife had secretly organised with the children, it was fantastic, staff excellent as always, thank you to you all, especially Mr Savidis and Maria, look forward to seeing you next year.
Corfu is like a second home to me! I have been to this beautiful island 3 times now and every time, I realise more and more how stunning it is. This was my second stay at the Imperial and it really is my forever second home. I stepped off the plane and couldn't wait to arrive at the main entrance. The welcome is fantastic, from the time you step through the door til the time you step out and back to the airport. Being greeted with drinks, towels and fruits sets the tone for the rest of your holiday. All the rooms in the main building are furnished the same and to a high standard. A bottle of wine and plate of fruit left for you when you first arrive. A bottle of water left in the room every day. My room, on the 2nd floor, was facing the Albanian coast overlooking the Ionian sea with fishing boats going past morning, afternoon and evening. The balcony had the sun in the mornings. Everywhere very clean and the housekeeping staff were so lovely. My main praise though has to go to Alekos in the restaurant. On my 1st visit back in May 2015, he noticed I was on my own and really looked after me at every meal. As soon as he saw me he would find a table for me on the balcony. When I arrived at the Imperial last week, I walked down to the restaurant, he recognised me straight away, greeting me so warmly. Again, he looked after me during my week's stay. Thank you! ALL the staff at this great hotel are worthy of praise and it is them who make your holiday and the relaxation that goes with it so special. The resort itself is set in idyllic Kommeno Bay overlooking sea on every side with beaches to enjoy or a very large swimming pool to lounge beside. You could either stay in resort topping up the tan or go into Corfu town any morning or afternoon on the free shuttle bus. There is also a trip, organised by the hotel, to Danillia, the village where the Durrells tv series was filmed. Worth the 10 euros cost! The food in the main restaurant is international and lots of choices, always being topped up by the staff. There is something for everyone. All in all, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. I will see you all, my friends, next year. I hope you all enjoy your well earned rest now. Thank you.
This is our third year back at the Grecotel Imperial and was the best year so far - the location never fails to disappoint, the hotel rooms are lovely with spectacular views, there is some evening entertainment if you want it and various classes during the daytime. I think the secret of this hotel though is the staff - the team stays largely the same from year to year, it is like returning to family that you haven't seen for a while and not only do they recognise and welcome you warmly but they remember what you like and dislike. Our special thanks and appreciation go to Vania, Pedros and Alekos, always smiling, friendly and kind, but I must say that all the staff are attentive and responsive, the chef and his team produce magnificent meals, the serving staff are always cheerful and the ladies who cleaned our rooms couldn't do enough to ensure we had everything we wanted. Nothing is too much trouble, everyone is approachable and the whole team ensured that we had the most magnificent, relaxing stay, AGAIN! There are delightful small touches that mean a lot when you arrive such as fruit and wine in the room, water each day, good quality toiletries, refreshments upon arrival, fruit brought round at the beach during the day time. This is one of those place that you would like to keep to yourself it is so remarkably good. It is hard not to repeat all the wonderful things that other people have said - they are all true! It is harder to explain what a uniquely welcoming, caring and friendly atmosphere there is.
My partner and I have just returned from a short four day break at the Imperial and what an amazing experience it has been. We have been treated like royalty in this well deserving five star hotel. From the minute we stepped into the transfer the hotel arranged for us from the airport, to stepping through the door for the very first time, we were treated like special guests. Our room was beautiful and the view out onto the sea and mountains was spectacular. Every meal we had was amazing with an enormous choice. The ‘steak and Sushi’ night at the a la carte restaurant was particularly memorable. The staff at the Imperial worked tirelessly to ensure our stay was one of the most memorable holidays I’ve had, in the throws of luxury. I’ve never experienced such attentive staff. Oh and finally I would highly recommend a massage in the spa. Imperial - you’re a little hidden gem!
We really enjoyed to stay in the imperial hotel due to its beautiful location with the garden...the little beaches and the perfect food and the very friendly & kind service of all of the staff from the hotel. We like to especially thank Alekos as he made the dinner& breakfast a joy for us with his kind service and positive attitude. Thanks so much!
This is the best Hotel we have ever stayed at. The welcome was certainly the best ever by far. Our bags were whisked away, cold drinks and flannels given all while in comfy chairs and the wonderful receptionist/customer relations Delia, checked us in and described the hotel facilities. The room on floor 5 was spectacular with views to match. All the hotel is spotless clean and high class luxury. The outside areas are the same clean, tidy and very well maintained. The location on a peninsula is unique with the sea on both sides, and lots of areas to sit or lounge or walk round, we kept discovering more little areas as the week went on, three beautiful private beaches. The attention to detail and comfort is second to none here. The food was stunning, varied, fresh, beautifully presented. The salads had to be seen to be believed. Special service from the show kitchen. This all meant we had a fantastic time, greatly enjoyed our stay and will certainly return, especially at this time of year, middle of October, it was a week of blue skies and 25c to 28c, perfect. Service at the outside dinner restaurant areas to get drinks tables cleared for other guests etc could be very slow/understaffed, some waiters seemed disinterested. Entertainment hit and miss, very similar each night, but fun. Drinks are very expensive. Tips: Hire a car before you go from Corfu Top Cars, excellent personal service, all in price, less than half of Hertz price within the hotel. Hire a boat from bay 20 mins walk down road, very good service and prices, boats suitable to go across to Corfu town, explore the coastline etc. Floor 5 rooms are very quiet and have spectacular views. Room service lunch served to your balcony is quite superb.
the hotel is amazing and the staff are extremely polite. But, and there is a But. The hotel is extremely expensive for food and drinks. Its €6.90 for a beer and €15.50 for a sandwich. Also if you want to visit Corfu town its €25 each way in an taxi I cannot fault the resort in any other way, I would highly recommend a visit but bring lots of money with you
We were upgraded from a sea view room to a seafront villa on arrival so that was a fabulous surprise - it was beautiful and spacious. We awoke every day to a view of the sea looking over to Albania and watching the dolphins swim by. The villa had two separate bedrooms, a lounge and two bathrooms, a plunge pool and a decking area. You could sunbathe on your own deck or right by the sea side. We also received complementary drinks on arrival and 2 bottles of wine, a replenished fruitbowl and water. The staff were polite and efficient, very helpful and the villa was spotlessly clean with all toiletries and towels replenished. Breakfast is as you would expect in a large hotel - amazing amounts of choice, slightly chaotic & very leisurely. As the hotel is on the peninsular there are only a couple of local tavernas you can get to by walking through the sister hotel the Eva Palace and going up to their reception and out to the right - its well worth it as they were cheap compared to the hotel restaurants and we had good local food. We tried the hotel restaurants and the steak and sushi was good - we would have gone again had we more time. We used the hotels free bus to Corfu town quite a few times, spending a whole day there and eating out one day, or just a couple of hours - you can book either with the. We also went on the Durrells village trip 10 euros each, as great fans of the series and the books it was good to see it but its really a coach there and back and a wander around. We would definitely stay in this hotel again. The taxi from the airport cost us 25 euros arriving and 30 euros back !
