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.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room on the top floor.

We stayed at the Delfino Blu for one week in June 2011 and would definitely go back! our only gripe was the that hotel didn't have a gym but we knew that when booking some months back. HOWEVER when at the hotel we found out that they were opening a gym which should be available for residents to use in the coming weeks, sadly just not when we were there.
ARRIVAL: we were greeted by Yvette who was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Once shown to our room we were greeted by a waiter with a tray of delights to include bucks fizz and a platter of fresh fruit, ice cream and cream - a lovely touch!
OUR ROOM: we stayed in a Superior room with views to the bay. Only downside our balcony looked out directly on to the roof a roof of the building next to the hotel. However, the view to the side of the balcony were amazing particularly during the most gorgeous sunset we have ever seen. Our room was very spacious, extremely clean and well maintained with excellent facilites (dvd player, plasma tv, cd mini system). Kitchen was adequate for our needs as we ate at the hotel's beach bar for lunch and terrace restaurant in the evening. We must mention the bed cause this was very very comfy and the linen, towels etc. changed on a daily basis. Turn down service in the evening was a lovely touch.
LOCATION: although we are both normally beach lovers we took up residence at the hotels beautiful poolside throughtout our week. We found this to be the perfect place to relax with a beer/cocktail whilst reading a good book. The hotel is right on the beach on the hillside which was nice for a welcoming stroll with a brief pitstop at the hotel's beach bar which offers fab cocktails and serves delicious food. The hotel is central to the town which offered a variety of pubs some of which had great entertainment.
FOOD: we were half board and were so glad because the food served at the hotel was amazing with a wide variety of local and european dishes being served on a daily basis. Our dining experience in the evening was second to none and the waiting staff were first class.
STAFF: in our opinion all the staff at the Delfino Blu provided a top rate service which would easily match that of any 5 star hotel. Nothing was too much trouble and every effort was made to accomodate any requests.
All in our holiday was great and we would recommend staying at the Delfino Blu to any one looking for a relaxing getaway away from it all. We would definitely consider returning next year to the Delfino Blu at which time the hotel's spa and gym should be open.

We chose to return to Delfino Blu again this year for our big summer vacation. We are so in love with this hotel and its staff- our vacation was so serene and relaxing, even with a 3 year old in tow! The hotel itself is in a wonderful spot right on the beach with a beautiful pool, terraces and great views. The sea is warm and quite shallow at this beach- perfectly safe for small children. The staff is impeccably trained and yet so friendly and approachable. They make sure that your every need is taken care of promptly and professionally. The food is very good with authentic Greek dishes as well as classic cuisine, there is an excellent wine list and a flexible menu for the little ones. We would generally never choose a half board option at a hotel, but the food is so good here that we don't hesitate. We travel widely in Europe and have never seen this kind of attention to detail and personal service. The owner, Costas has created a very unique and special environment, his staff are incredibly loyal and obviously happy to be working for him. Costas continues to make improvements to his hotel in the off season and there will be even more amenities offered in the future! Thank you to everyone at the Delfino Blu for such an enjoyable stay- we have already booked for 2012.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms with ocean view have really nice views of the beach and bay.
