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.

My husband, two children (age 4 and 3) and I, just got back from Govino Bay, Gauvia Corfu. We stayed at room 302 and this was a 1 bedroom apartment with a kitchenette with a living area and a bathroom. Though the bedroom was a bit on the small side all four of us had managed to sleep here. My 3 year old had his own crib which was really handy. I wasn’t keen on the bathroom and if definitely needs some revamping because it was tired and stained. Due to corona, you have to book cleaning services a day before which I wasn’t aware about but managed to get cleaners come about 4 times during our 10 day stay here. We had towels provided but I often founds these with stains. The very clean and decent pool and snack bar from the apartment is about 2 mins walk and the beach front about 5 mins and it’s not sandy as you’d imagine. It’s literally like a reservoir attached to the hotel. We walked through bushes and along the beach strip to come in front of Coryca Hotel which was absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. I wouldn’t recommend the breakfast at the restaurant because vegetarian option was really really poor but the coffee was good. It’s not much of a selection and not worth the price if I’m honest. The lovely Liz and Doni however are amazing helpful people. I would recommend this place as a quiet peaceful get-away. It is definitely suitable for kids but I highly recommend hiring your own car to get about and take own booster seats to limit costs with rental car companies. We’d paid a lot for taxi’s to get about because we didn’t know what to expect and it was last minute changes to our holiday destination. It’s 15 mins taxi ride to old town Corfu and 20 mins to Aqualand. Gauvia beach is 10-15 minutes walk from the resort and it’s definitely where all the life is. You must try the Prawn Saganaki from Brunos Bay Natalie restaurant - absolutely divine! The mini market at the resort wasn’t open for the whole time that we there but there are shops near Gauvia beach to get your essentials. Corfu is a beautiful island with lovely people and we were treated so well by everyone! If eating fish is your thing my goodness... Corfu would be your heaven!

We went away as a family of 5 during Covid-19 returning on 21/08/20, hotel was excellent when it came to cleanliness 1 person into reception at a time with mask, we needed to book the cleaners 2 days in advance and sunbeds were separated by 2m and sprayed down prior to use by the lifeguard.
Accommodation was good/basic and clean, air conditioning was ok but needed to be on all the time to have a cool temperature and only cool in the main room.
Pool was also clean and tidy, staff were friendly and pool snack bar food was good, but a little on the pricey side.
Hotel is very close to local bars and restaurants with a wide variety of Greek food to choose from.
The bay at the hotel although very beautiful is not ideal for swimming in, as it is not clear water and has swans, geese and ducks also present.
Would recommend hiring a car from reception (54 euros) and travelling 40 minutes to the north of the island (Sidari) and then working your way round the west coast where you will truly see the beauty of Corfu.

Stayed in a 2 bed apartment end of September. Apartment was fantastic, great size and very clean. We had a view of the estuary which was great. My only criticism was lack of iron and toaster in the kitchen but wasn't really a problem. Cleaning staff were great and came every day, though we sometimes sent them away as we didn't need them. Pool was really nice with plenty of sunbeds around it but we tended to sit in the gardens under the trees. Also swam in the estuary once I bought swimming shoes which was great. Pool bar serves all kinds of drinks and sandwiches ets, staff there were lovely. No complaints really.
I would go back in a heartbeat.

The accommodation is not far from the city of Corfu. It can be reached by car in a few minutes, but it can also be easily and quickly approached by a frequent bus route (number 7). It is located between the main road and the sea. There is always a lot of traffic on the main road, but the noise is not heard in the apartments. The sea is unusable in the resort area, practically unsuitable for beachcombing. The water is very shallow and murky, rather expect a swamp if you stray here. Therefore, it is full of waterfowl and mosquitoes. A mosquito repellent is a must-have item among your travel belongings. After dark, you cannot stay outside the building, on the terrace.
The buildings are in good condition and attractive from the outside. The garden is cared for. The pool cannot be said to be large, especially considering the size of the resort and the lack of a direct sea beach. Next to the pool, we found quite a few sunbeds torn off, which were not taken out of use.
The furnishings of the apartments are minimalistic and simple. You can see that they have already served quite a few seasons. Some furnishings are in need of repair. There is air conditioning only in the living room, so the bedroom can only be cooled with this with the door open. You can't even open the window at night because of the mosquitoes. It was not possible to control the climate, because he did not even have his own remote control in the apartment.
There are two establishments in the resort area designed to serve the guests' dining needs. We didn't notice too much traffic, although their cuisine is not bad and their prices are below the Corfu average. There is no grocery store in the resort area, but several large stores can be reached within a few minutes' walk or drive.
All in all, if someone doesn't want to spend their vacation locally, but wants to use the resort as a starting point for day trips and more distant beaches, I can recommend it. In terms of price/value ratio, it provides what we pay for it. But this complex will not be able to meet high expectations and demands.

Food: very bad. Buffet food was the only available option in front bar. Very little choice, slightly warm chips, breaded meat, I still don't know if it was chicken or pork ? Slightly warm spaghetti bolonesse, very bad . The tuna salad was the only nice thing available. This was every night !!
Accomodation: very dated but clean . Cleaning staff fantastic and came every day with fresh towels etc. Beds are single beds pushed together.
Our accommodation was one bedroom downstairs with 2 single beds pushed together, bathroom downstairs with a bath, shower hose in bath, toilet , bathroom smelt of drains eventhough window was constantly open. Living room with small kitchen area, 1 dated microwave and 2 electric plates. Ants were a problem eventhough we made sure to clean up and pur away all food. A TV with Greek channels only. Two couches which were supposed to be able to be slept on (sofa beds, but don't pull out) and were hard as nails. A loft area with two single beds pushed together.
The only Air conditioning unit in the entire apartment was halfway down the stairs of loft bedroom and living room which meant loft upstairs was freezing and downstairs bedroom roasting.
We tried leaving downstairs bedroom door, windows open and door to living room open to try and cool down at night but although we were slightly cooler we were bitten alive by mosquitoes even with plug in repellent.
The resort is situated beside a dual carriageway which is very busy and noisy all night which makes it extremely difficult to sleep.
Also be advised there is no shop on site but there is a small garage shop across the road which would cover very basic needs Nearest small supermarket type shop 20 mins walk to right of entrance.
The "beach as advertised" is a small estuary, pretty but stoney and not really suited for swimming.
The plus side is the pool and pool bar is lovely also the staff in reception are very friendly and helpful.

The nearby village of Govina to left of resort, 15 mins walk is great for restaurants , shopping and bars. Recommend the BBQ
Art restaurant l great food prices and lovely staff.

Bus (Nr.7) which will take you to Corfu town is across the road from the resort and comes every 20 mns.
This was my first time in Greece and I definitely will return but sadly it will not be be to stay in the Govina Bay Resort.

We have stayed here a few times and the quality of accommodation has gone realy poor. When we arrived we were so shocked by the poor quality of rooms and complained the next day and the receptionist was very abrupt looking up how many times we said we stayed.
We were offered to move same type of poor quality rooms which was senseless she also said thats what we have to expect in there accommodation which is not not right thing to say as we know they have better accommodation as stayed before .
The food and staff at restaurant by the side of resort was exceptional and very friendly.
I will not be going back after coming here many years and quality very poor and receptionist very rude.
Don't waist ur money rooms look like the 80s and very minimal

We booked this for 1 week as a last minute decision. The reception was very friendly and they even tried to check us in 4 hrs earlier.
Once we started to walk around the resort, we realised that we made a big mistake but this all depends on what you want in a holiday resort and your budget. Sadly, this was not for us.

This resort looked very dated, in desperate need of some paint, pool was empty, grass was overgrown. The surroundings area was very dirty, rubbish bins were overflowing, the side roads were disgusting and really not suited to take a walk to a local restaurant, if you could find one. I understand that we arrived out of season but there are those families that prefer the quiet and on this occasion this did not tick any boxes for us.

We cancelled our check in that very same day and went to a Hotel instead which completely satisfied our every need and purpose.

Folks, don't be fooled by the photos.

Terrible location, right on a busy dual carriageway. The 2 bed apartment is small and in need of updating. The bathroom , or rather, shower room smelt awful due to drains. Each time you shower the floor becomes soaked so a slip hazard. Bar staff are ignorant and rude, totally ignored us on our first day so we left as we didn’t get served. The main road to walk to Gouvia town is treacherous and really run down.
All in all not a nice place very ☹️

We stayed half board. The meals were good value and the restaurant staff were very nice.
The pool area was lovely and well kept, and the staff very nice too. Expensive though.
The beach is not good, looks more like the side of a lake and the water was not inviting enough to swim in.
The accommodation is basic and a bit tatty but clean. You get what you pay for.
The only thing I would complain about is the trips that the reception staff are selling.
We went on the paxos/anti paxos trip, which was very good. My mum who is 75 and has mobility issues wanted to go on the Albania trip and asked if there would be much walking as she can only manage to walk a bit. She was reassured that there wasn’t much walking and that she would be fine.
She wasn’t fine. There was loads of walking and uphill too with a fast paced guide. My mum nearly collapsed. When she got back she was in a real state and burst into tears. She went to complain to reception and they told her that they didn’t realise as they had never been. Now if you are promoting an excursion and receiving commission for selling that excursion, they should know what it entails. This was my only issue with the holiday.

Do the 1 bedroom apartments or studios have a balcony to sit out on a night
Answer from Halawa

They have a patio type place outside the main door with table and chairs. Depending on which apartment you are in- it's a bit dark and dingy.. and bugs.
