If you're looking for a peaceful hotel, you're in the right place! The Delfinia Hotel is one of the quietest hotels we visited in Corfu. It is located just by Moraitikia beach, and the village is five minutes away by foot.
The Delfinia Hotel is at the entrance to the village of Moraitikia, located 12 mi from the town of Corfu, and the same distance from the airport, as they are just next to each other. You should allow for a good half hour to make the trip in one direction or the other. However, if you wish to go to the town centre, watch out for peak times, which are often subject to traffic jams.
The hotel offers no shuttle service to the centre of Corfu, however, there is a bus stop 200m from the hotel. You will also find a supermarket at 100m, and a pharmacy at 200m from the hotel.
Water-sports enthusiasts will be able to practice them on the hotel beach. However, they are insured by an external company, and are therefore payable.
Note that the children's club is open from 12:00pm to 1:00pm and from 4:00pm to 5:00pm Toddlers will also be able to enjoy themselves at the mini-disco that is held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
For your information, the hotel is open between the months of April and October.
The Delfinia Hotel is surrounded by a pretty, well-maintained garden, filled with flowers. However, once inside, the small reception is very sombre. The lounge area is located just opposite, and looks like that of a private house. The old and incomplete furniture produces an overall gloomy effect. However, the skylights provide the room with a natural source of light. Outside, a pretty garden leads to the hotel swimming pool and a small round pool for children. There are a few deckchairs around it, with sunshades. However, most of the guests lounge in the palm grove. The hotel's beach is a little further away. It has a Beach Bar facing the sea, with an inside and outside terrace. This is where the evening's entertainment takes place.
Three buildings hold the hotel's 185 rooms. In the main building, it is possible to take a lift to get to them. However, its small size is not very reassuring; those who are claustrophobic keep away! The standard room is quite simple, with little decoration to give it character. It is spacious, and has a small sitting area opposite the bed. The balcony means that you can sit outside and enjoy the view. As regards equipment, there is a television, air conditioning, a payable safe, an empty mini-bar, a hairdryer, a direct international line, and room service until midnight. The bathroom is quite dark, and the neon lighting above the mirror is not very flattering for the complexion!
The hotel has two restaurants: the Tavern, by the sea, where you can have your lunch at midday, and the main restaurant. This is in a separate building. You can get to it in a glass lift. It is open from 6:45 am to 10:00 am and from 6:15 pm to 9:30 pm, and functions as a buffet. It is nicely decorated in a Mediterranean style, however, the dining room is not very big, and the tables are quite close to each other. The restaurant organises a Greek evening and live music once a week.
As with all the beaches of Corfu, the Delfinia beach is no exception to the rule: it is a public place. Therefore be aware that if you wish to sit in a deckchair here, you will be obliged to pay for your space. The beach, which consists mainly of pebbles, is not very wide, but sufficiently long to give people enough space. To go for a swim is completely safe in principle, as there are hardly any waves. It remains to be seen whether the situation is the same when there is wind.
