Either you are an optimist, or you are not... The Popi Star enjoys a location that could be described as... interesting. If you look on the bright side, the location is ideal: it is between the shops and the road into town, but on the other hand, this means that there is no beach by the hotel, and the nearby main road will be a source of background noise... However, the establishment is nice and friendly. Although it has few facilities, the Popi Star is a good base from which to explore the island.

    • To know

    • The Popi Star is located right at the heart of the small seaside resort of Gouvia. The town of Corfu city and the airport are next to each other about 4 mi away. The journey takes about quarter of an hour in either direction. However, if you want to visit the town centre, avoid rush hour, or you could well find yourself stuck in a traffic jam.

    • The 112 rooms of the establishment are best described as simple and comfortable. The room is spacious and the decoration is quite subdued. For example, there is just a single painting, hanging above the bed. There is nothing remarkable about the pale-coloured wooden furniture. Outside, there is a small balcony with a table and plastic chairs, from which you can look over the rather unconvincing garden.. However, privacy is a scarce commodity here. Do not expect too much in terms of amenities: there is a television set, air conditioning and a telephone. Ask at reception if you require a safe. The bathroom is a similar story: a spacious room provided only with a soap dispenser.
    • Because of its location between a little shopping street in Gouvia and the main road to Corfu, the Popi Star has two entrances. The second is more colourful than the first, which is rather dark and not very attractive. Notwithstanding the small number of rooms, the hotel has two swimming pools, not far from each other, of 970 sq ft and 1,550 sq ft. There are white plastic deckchairs around the pools, and a few sunshades. However, the lawn between the two looks rather tired, and seems to have really suffered in the heat...
    • The Popi Star has two restaurants, one in each of the hotel's building. At lunchtime, though, you are expected to fend for yourself, as the room is closed in the afternoon. Breakfast is a buffet, and a menu is provided for dinner. The style of food is international, but a Greek evening is organised there each week.
    • The hotel is not next to Gouvia's pebbly beach. But you only need to walk around 656 ft to get there. On the contrary, it is right next to the shops, restaurants and bars of the town.
      The hotel does not offer a shuttle service to Corfu, but there is a bus stop 1,640 ft away.
      For your information, the hotel is open from April to October.

      The Park Hotel Corfu is easy to find. Its entrance is on the main road linking Gouvia to Corfu. The guests who we met were very pleased with their stay. It's only normal, the hotel is very well taken care of and is filled with welcoming and smiling staff! Surrounded by 20,000 m² of garden, it has no access to the beach but it does have a wonderfully relaxing area around the swimming pool.

      Thanks to its magnificent and immense lawn, the Iberostar Kerkyra Golf gives the impression of infinite space. A quality which is rare for most of the hotels in Corfu. Here, you will not be piled up on top of other holiday-makers, and if you wish to be more isolated, there is no lack of space! Moreover, the culture shock is unlikely to be overwhelming as 90% of the guests are European.

      The Dassia Chandris forms part of the Chandris Hotels & Resorts hotel chain. Its neighbour, the Corfu Chandris, forms the second piece of the jigsaw. Whether you are staying at one or the other, you will benefit from the same common infrastructures and the same facilities. The only things that differentiate the two hotels are the rooms and the two receptions.

However, you won't be able to walk to Corfu city unless you enjoy a good hike. The clientele is essentially European. The hotel is comfortable and very well maintained.

      The Mareblue Aeolos Beach looks more like a small village than an actual hotel. Within the estate, you will have to use the shuttle to go from one place to the other, unless you enjoy a hike on the steep pathways linking the various parts of the hotel. That said, with a capacity of 1,000 guests, you need some space! If you love a good landscape, note that the high-perched location of the hotel gives it a beautiful view of the sea.

      It is impossible to not find the Iberostar Regency Beach, considering that it is on the coastal road. Thanks to its elevated position, it benefits from a beautiful view of the sea, but the rooms on that side are also positioned above the road. The rooms are comfortable her, but the beach is too small to be able to take all of the hotel guests.
