Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here for a week after doing a Tui cruise. So nice to be somewhere quiet with a lovely pool and super comfy sunbeds that you will guarantee to get any time of day. The hotel was at full capacity but it never felt crowded and the restaurant was always spacious with plenty of tables. We had a family suite in a bungalow. So much room and the beds were really comfy. Huge balcony which we could see the sea from. It was my husband's 50th birthday while we were there. The hotel helped me surprise him by decorating one of the secluded double sunbeds with a banner, balloons and a bottle of prosecco in a bucket of ice. He was totally blown away to find this and it made his day really special. They even brought out a birthday cake at breakfast. We can't thank them enough. The food was really good, so much choice and it was always fresh and very tasty. My kids loved the food too (ages 13 and 15). You are only a 10 minute walk from the beach which was great but bring water shoes as it is quite stony.

We found this hotel more than surpassed our expectations during this difficult time with Covid. It was very reassuring to see that they regularly sanitised tables and chairs in the restaurant between guests as well as the pool areas. There were also plenty of wall mounted sanitisers around the hotel. Checking in via the App was quick and easy on our arrival. We were booked into a junior suite in the grounds of the hotel which was a bonus. We were right at the top of the slope with fantastic views of the bay and garden. The room was very modern, had a superking bed which was so comfortable, separate shower room with nice white fluffy towels with plenty of shower gel/shampoo/moisteriser/shower cap/cotton wool buds supplied. Kettle with tea and coffee making facilities replenished daily, but after the first day you do need to buy your own water. We had a very large balcony with 2 wicker sun beds along with a table and chairs. You are just a 10-15 walk away from Gouvia town with plenty of bars and restaurants, turn left out of the hotel until you reach the main traffic lights, cross over the main dual carriageway to reach the town centre and the bus stop to wherever you want to go to in Corfu. The pool area is very peaceful with plenty of sun beds. There are a couple of floating bean bags for guests to use in the pool to lie on which is an added bonus, so relaxing to lie on. The pool bar serves a good choice of cocktails and very reasonably priced food. A special mention to Zoe here who is always very happy and friendly serving us our food. We were half board and we were very impressed by the food on offer which was just delicious and well cooked with plenty of variety. The waiters do have to serve you the main food from the buffet which again is very reassuring during Covid and the service from all the waiters was impressive as it must be really difficult for them to keep up with all the guests requests for food, but they were always very pleasant and efficient and we were never left waiting long before they came to serve you. You can help yourself to the starters which are already helpfully plated up for you to take away. The bread is already sliced and slipped into brown paper to take. It is a lovely dining room and seating outside on the patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this brilliant hotel and would highly recommend it. Everything was just perfect with no negatives at all. We can't wait to come back. Thank you to all the staff for our wonderful time at your wonderful hotel. it really does make a difference.

We Stayed here 30th Aug to 8th September.
As soon as we walked in the the hotel a lovely smelling aroma was present and it was like that for the whole visit.
My wife described the hotel as a “boutique” hotel as it was marble floors, and limed Oak doors and woodwork, beautiful
We arrived at 12 at night and the receptionist that checked us in immediately gave us a good take away bag that they had ready containing some ham & cheese baguettes, fruit and water, a thoughtful little touch.

We stayed in a Junior Suite (I hadn’t realised I had booked this) which was lovely and spacious with a Queen size bed. The room had an extra area with a couple of settee s and a balcony, a lovely bathroom with shower. 2 double wardrobes and a dressing table. There was Free WiFi for the whole stay ( TIP -you have to put your password in each day so you are not using your data).
Lovely swimming pool, outside tennis court, table tennis, ( they are building a gym in the next year or so).

Due to Covid , you had to be served with your food by one if the dining staff at breakfast and dinner which wasn’t ideal BUT the staff were so patient and accommodating.( there were a few rather impatient people but the staff dealt with them really well) .The other positive about this was that we definitely didn’t eat as much as you always “pick” & “try” more when on holiday and are serving yourself (probably saved another 4lb of extra weight around the waist!)

The hotel is conveniently positioned for walking in to Gouvia town/beach (10 mins) and also the same time to get to the main road where you can catch the really good Blue /Green buses ( very cheap 1.6 euros pp each way) to Corfu Town (15 mins),Ipsos (15mins) Paleokastritsa (25mins) , Sidari (50mins), or other places to stay.

Recommendations to do list;
Spyros boat trip to Kassiopi or BBQ to San Stefanos (from Gouvia beach) 30 euros pp
Hire a small 25/30hp boat for the day about 100 euros for 8 hours with petrol ( will take 6 people so can be economical)from Billies boats in Gouvia or we got the Green bus to the 1st stop in Nissaki and hired a boat from Danny inNissaki Boat Hire and travelled up to Kassiopi and all the lovely little beaches along the way).

Take the Green bus to Paleokastritsa ( beautiful beach ) , take a Kayak out for 8 euros for an hour, or same bus and get off at La Grotta Beach Bar, walk to Akrotiri Beach ( 400 yards downhill if you are able to walk).
Same bus , get off at “camping” and go to Acapulco Bar with amazing views lovely bar and a swimming pool ( free!)

We had a wonderful stay overall.

We have just returned from a wonderful 11 night stay at Art Hotel Debono celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Our accommodation was Room 319, a Bungalow with a Terrace at the back of the main hotel up a slight incline. All the staff very helpful particularly Zoe, Konstantinos,Chissanthi & Konstantina who provided a very personal & friendly service and helped us learn some Greek!.The fact that due to COVID restrictions the staff had to serve us most elements of the meals actually enabled us to develop a great relationship with staff members. This hotel went well beyond the requirements for COVID and our towels and sheets were changed on a regular basis. We loved the pool area even though we are not sun worshippers, there was plenty of shade and no problem finding sun beds. The food throughout our stay was exceptional and very tasty, it never once tasted the same as we have found with many other hotels where we have stayed on half board. We think Gouvia is an ideal base for exploring the island and we hired a car at the airport from Value Plus who very kindly upgraded our car from a Peugeot 107 to 208 at no extra charge. There were many highlights to our holiday, here are just a few, The Durrells TV house which is about about a 30 min walk from the hotel along the coastal road ( Make sure you take some water shoes) Vido Island a short boat trip across from Corfu Town Magdelana Cruise with Captain Spiro from Gouvia to Kassiopi, Mouse Island close to airport runway and Panorama at Notos in the South. Thank you Julia Debono and all your staff for helping make our holiday a truly memorable one.
We highly recommend this hotel

Firstly I have to say the staff here at the hotel are polite, courteous and above all professional in essence they made our stay an absolute pleasure. The hotel is very clean especially during the current Covid crisis with constant cleaning & precautions being carried out. The room we had 314 which is external to the main building slightly up a hill and was simply stunning with a lovely view across the valley through the olive trees. The bed was really comfortable and quite big with some of the best nights sleep I've had in ages. The shower was 2 fold a small one to wash down and a large one for normal showers. There are 2 sinks, 1 big one next to the main shower and 1 small one in the toilet room. The rooms are cleaned each and every day to a high quality. The pool area is nice and serene with plenty of beds & shade (though there was the usual people putting towels down and not appearing till later sadly) the pool itself is very cool with 2 sets of steps at one end for entry and the deepest end you can still stand up in unless you are under 5 feet or so. There is a snack bar selling delicious food and drinks, alcoholic and non alcoholic. In al the pool is a lovely place to spend the day.
We were half-board so breakfast & evening meal which was fine with us. Once again the staff serving in the dining room were exceptional always smiling and always polite. Breakfast is simply gorgeous with so many choices whether they be hot stuff omelettes, fried eggs, toast, bacon etc or cold from Greek yogurt (my wife's favourite) fruit, croissant etc and bread be it sliced or rolls (brown & white). Evening meals were something to look forward to (menu for evening meals on the board in hotel lobby opposite reception) with so many selections of dishes local or otherwise (vegetarian/vegan included) and we enjoyed every meal from the soups to salads to main courses to desserts including fruit and/or ice cream. You could sit inside or outside your choice and again the whole of the dining room was cleaned and sanitised.
So in all an extremely satisfying and relaxing holiday in very pleasant surroundings being looked after by brilliant staff. With that may I say to management please thank all the staff for their professionalism, politeness and hard work, it has been a pleasure staying at the Art Hotel Debono

This is my fourth stay at debono, and I was so glad it didn’t get cancelled because coming here is always the highlight of my year. Although I was feeling slightly anxious, I felt so safe and it was almost as if it was a normal holiday. The amazing and nurturing staff happily welcomed us, as they always do. The staff wear face coverings/visors and there are hand sanitising stations dotted around the hotel. I wasn’t sure how it would feel to be served at the buffet by staff but it was absolutely fine and executed very well. There are social distancing markings on the floor and the sun loungers are distanced too. All staff members, including the lovely owners have really done incredibly during this stressful time.
We decided to stay in the junior suite bungalow this year as we have always been in the standard rooms (which are also lovely and extremely worth staying in) and it was absolutely beautiful. Every part of it was nice - so spacious with tasteful decor, comfortable beds and an incredible view of the olive groves and the sea. If you have any sort of problem with your room or in general, the hotel staff will always go out of their way to help you. The interior and exterior of this hotel is all beautiful with small touches that add something a little extra, it is a mixture of modern and traditional which is perfect. It feels like a home away from home when I come here, so thank you to all the staff who make it so special and I can’t wait to come again in the future.

Dear guest, We would like to thank you for your preference to our accommodation. It is always a pleasure when you and your mother stay with us. Our number one priority is to offer our guests safe holidays and we tried hard as you mentioned to managed to, as this summer was very different and strange. Our hotel is respecting all regulations and hygiene protocols imposed by greek government and the Ministry of Tourism for the safety of all guests and staff. We are so glad you liked our bungalows. They are indeed so spacious, modern with all amenities and wonderful views. Thank you for your comments about our building. Our establishment is a traditional building of Corfu island with traditional colours and painting. The interior has been renovated by the owner of the hotel who is an architect and is the person who also designed our brand-new bungalows. It is quite modern with few old style pieces of furniture, which is a very interesting combination. In addition, he used wood, marble and other natural materials which confer functionality, style and uniqueness to varied indoor environments, such as the rooms and bathrooms, the restaurant, the reception and lounge area. As you know, Art Hotel Debono is a family run boutique hotel and the owners wanted to maintain the tradition of Debono family and also the tradition of Corfu island thus there are elements which are obvious in many parts of the hotel. We are so happy that you feel like at home while staying with us and looking forward to meeting you and your mother again next year. Kind regards Julia Debono

Hi where to start it's hard to find much wrong here especially during covid restrictions still in place .

We stayed for a week early September room 319 which is one of the 4 suites right at the top of the hill ,319 is ground floor on the left of the pictures.Large living area with 2 sofa beds TV fridge ,kettle tea and coffee ,we had a bowl of fruit and snacks with 2 bottles of fizz on arrival as this was a very delayed 50th for my partner.

The grounds are well maintained and set out that you never feel crowded ,pool area is good always available sunloungers but the 2 X Cabanas always full .The pool lunch menu was a mixture of salads and sandwiches and a few larger meals ,had the club Sandwich good value around €7.

We used this hotel as a base on half board we would be out exploring Corfu during the day so didn't spend too much time there other than mornings and evenings .

You do need a car the hotel is set back on a side street but if you want to visit even the Harbour or local beach it's a tricky walk crossing the main 3 lane highway

Carparking is free and ample never had a problem finding a spot for our jeep..

Food ,once used to the wearing disposable gloves when getting food was good lots of choices and different evening menu every night was always hot and hard to fault ,mixture of Greek and European menus something for everyone including chips.Drinks hotel value large beer €4 Gin&tonic €6.

One thing you won't be alone during mealtimes for us was a highlight of each meal being joined by up to 6 of the hotel
Kittens.

Peaceful ,well run just what we needed for a week break ,well done to all the hotel staff during these difficult times.

One thing to note for morning arrivals like ours we got to the hotel around 1pm but the room wasn't ready until 3pm no issue our luggage was taken to the room and we could use the pool bar had lunch .

Well what can i say? Brilliant is all I can come up with. I am coeliac which means thaty if i have gluten i can become really ill very quickly, therefore I have to be catered for very carefully. I'm very glad to say that from the moment I informed Julia by email the Debono was well up to the task in hand and consequently I had a wonderful holiday because of the care and attention to my dietary requirements by chef and serving staff. They went above and beyond making special dishes just for me and ensuring that I only recived safe food.

As it was our aniversary I let Tui know and when we arrived the Debono had left us a lovely welcome gift with card, fruit and chocolate selection with prosecco to enjoy on the balcony of our lovely room.

Everything was lovely and clean everyday and the staff were so friendly even when under pressure due to the necessary covid-19 re-organisation where they had to serve each individual at the buffet.

The pool area was never crowded and we had several days just relaxing there. Reception staff were a mine of information and even organised our car hire direct to the hotel.

We usually cruise and have got used to first rate service onboard ship. The Debono easily equalled this expectation and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

This year (2020) many hotels – among them a few more upscale ones – on the Corfu island haven’t opened for the tourists. It was therefore not that simple to find a decent accommodation. We had to look for other alternatives, also taking into account specific COVID-related situation. We opted therefore for a bungalow in the Art Hotel Debono. One of the best decisions ever made. The buildings are new (some of them built last year, some even this year). They are modern and quite spacious. Located a few steps from the main building, they provide peace and quiet as well as – so important these days – distance from others. At the check-in we were also offered to have a look at the rooms in the main building. They were also very nice and well maintained.

I am not a big fun of spending time by the pool, but in case of Debono it was a real pleasure. Maybe due to lower number of tourists, but we never had a problem with finding a place on the pool chairs. The water is very clean (the annoying thing is that cleaning was taking place around 10-11 in the morning, when many people already wanted to swim) and quite warm. Real pleasure.

The food at the breakfast was tasty. The procedures imposed by the government were annoying, but the staff was doing their best to prove smooth service.

Downside? The hotel – whilst itself very nice – is located in not so beautiful area. Advisable to have your own car, although you can always find ways to go around with taxis and public transport.

Dear guest, We would like to thank you for staying with us and also for your time to reviea our accommodation. We are so happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us and that our services were appreciated. Our new bungalows are indeed wonderful, spacious, very well decorated, they offer all amenities and lovely views. We are glad you enjoyed our pool area. It is a very relaxing place where one can order and enjoy snacks, drinks and coktails offered by the pool bar. We are all trying to offer our guests safe and relaxing holidays respecting all regulations and sanitary protocols imposed by the Greek government. The location is very convenient as it offers easily access to all attractions of the island. It is within walking distance from Gouvia town and just 8 klm from Corfu old town. There are buses that are running every 20-30 minutes to all directions. The bus stop is just 5 minutes walk from our hotel. In Gouvia town there are restaurants, bars, shops, a supermarket, the marina and a pittoresque beach. We would like to thank you also for your comment about our cooking. We offer different dishes every day in order to satisfy our guests' different tastes and different dietary habits. All in all, our common aim as a team is to make our guests experience greek gastronomy, greek hospitality and wonderful holidays. We hope to see you again in the future. Best regards Julia Debono

Had been there 6 years ago and still the best place in Corfu for so many reasons. Love the rooms and now the new bungalow suites in a beautiful location between the olive and fruit trees, so relaxing and so much privacy and well equiped. The amazing staff does everything they can to make you feel at home, love the family run atmosphere, the kindness, hospitality and thoughtful attentions like buying umbrellas on a rainy day where else you see that happening ? Thanks to the staff we have been at places that are not mentioned on the map. Other advantage the hotel is perfectly situated to explore the island, and there is a lot to see. The pool and poolbar are a nice place to relax and have a drink or lunch or just sit under the trees reading a book. The food is amazing and a combination of traditional mixed with international food with a lot of fresh and traditional products. The staff in the restaurant did an amazing job seen the covid rules and issues. Salads and some starters in small portions that you could take yourself and for all the rest the staff accompany you at the buffet. Seen some comments that it was not organised well but believe that is incorrect, if the staff was already dealing with somebody you could sit down and wait a second iso making a queue, it is vacation so you should have time to do that. Seen also comments about the facemask and handgels and must say I don²t understand that as there are enough gels and wearing a mask is not the responsibility of the hotel but an individual choice (ALL staff was wearing a mask) and to be honest seen several people wear it and then put the mask open on the tabel is that hygenic and safe or come to the pool with a mask and sit on the sunbed cussions without using a towel ?
Anyway we felt safe and happy to be away from it all for a while and we can only thank ART Debono for that. For us the number 1 in Corfu and the only place we stay when taking vacation in Corfu. Thank you all at Debono for the incredible vacation; the beautiful suite and your hard work each one of you. Have a lovely and safe year end and hope for better times next year. Take care of our little kitten friend and until next tme

Can you confirm if there is a beach within walking distance of the hotel
Answer from Julia D

Dear visitors, Regarding your question, Γοθωια beach is 500 meters away from us and is pebbled. At a slightly greater distance, using the bus that has very frequent routes, there is Dassia, much larger beach and a bit sandy . If you really intend to rent a car, our location is ideal with a very good road and easy access to explore the island . Kind regards Art Hotel Debono Team
