Just returned home after a fantastic week at Penelope Hotel, I really can't fault this hotel and staff. The whole atmosphere was so relaxing and enjoyable from the moment we were collected from the airport to our return. I'd personally like to thank them all for looking after us during our week's stay, they couldn't have fine more in making it such a fabulous holiday that'll we'll never forget.....definitely returning next year

My family and I stayed at Penelope for a week, and we had a nice time, but there were a few things that could be improved. The GOOD: - The rooms are spacious; - The beds are comfortable; - There is a free pickup from the airport if the stay is longer than 7 days; - During the day, if you want to stay at the hotel, you can order a small lunch (pizza, greek salad, toast, omelette) and it's quite good; - Very close to the sea, to one shop and to several restaurants; - The area is delightful, quiet and peaceful. - The swimming pool was never too busy; - You can rent a car and go on many activities/trips from there; - The air conditioning worked well. - There are free-to-use inflatables in the swimming pool. The BAD: - DON'T pay for HALF BOARD! Their restaurant is 20 minutes away, which is not a pleasant walk in the summer heat! There are plenty of better restaurants very close to the hotel (Kalami was the best, but they were all quite good). - The shower in the room leaked outside the cubicle; - The air conditioning leaked water on our balcony; - No-one every cleaned under the beds; - The swimming pool wasn't very clean one day. My skin got irritated and a guest got an earache; - There is a pool bar, but there is never anyone in it, so the guests were just serving themselves and writing what they had on a piece of paper. We made our own cocktails, but we still ended up paying them full price; - We paid full price for them driving us back to the airport, even though the hotel driver was going there anyway to pick up a guest that was arriving at the same time.

So, after a family tradegy, I needed to get away, by myself, to relax and recharge my mind, body and spirit. I wanted quiet, pre-season and a family run place. Kostas is above and beyond any host I've ever met, like his brother Sophocles. Together, with their siblings and parents, they run a small, laid back, intimate hotel, where NOTHING is too much; the best restaurant 800mtrs down the road and the easiest car hire going. Mamas cooking at Boukari Beach Restaurant, from the Octopus to Sea Bass, Sardines to huge grilled Prawns (Langoustine), is fabulous. When I 1st arrived Corfu was just starting to open up and very little was open. Kostas looked after me, made me feel like family and constantly made sure I was OK. There are so many beautiful places to visit in the south of Corfu and all over Corfu of course, and it was such a privilege to see so much of the Island, with so few tourists. As I left, Corfu was filling up and after 2 years of no travelling, this was THE best way to introduce myself back to freedom!!! Next time, I'll bring all the family with me to the beautiful Penelope Hotel and the beautiful Kostas and his family. Blessed Love and Peace. ❤💛💚

The owner Kostos is very hospitable and can see to all your requirements. Advise you to book directly and hire a car when required as the airport car hire is very expensive. Book the car hire with Kostos ahead of time. Recommend eating at the family seafood restaurant that is 800metres up the coast. We had delicious fresh seafood there every night. Room is basic. Area is lovely. Breakfast is not impressive.

This property is exceedingly isolated, which can be both a strength as well as a weakness. For instance, exchange money at the airport, because once you get to the hotel, there is nowhere to get euros. There is truly nothing save for two markets, and 1/2 dozen fish restaurants right on the water. You can go stir-crazy without a rental car, as you are in the middle of nowhere. But maybe that’s why you come: to escape the madness of everyday life. WiFi connection can be spotty, so be prepared. It doesn’t stay down for long, but the signal is not strong. As for the markets: Peris Market is directly across the street; Market Boukari is 20m down the street, and their water is 1/2 the price of Peris. You don’t want to drink / brush teeth with the tap water. The breakfast is buffet style, with a very wide variety, and they put different items out on different days. It’s a good breakfast. I highly recommend not leaving your patio door open at night. While the sounds are great, the mosquitoes at night are voluminous. So close the patio door and use the a/c. A couple of matters about the bathroom. TP and hand soap are provided; nothing else is. So be sure to bring shower gel and shampoo. My only complaints regard the shower. The stall is incredibly small, so it’s very difficult to maneuver, and I am thin. For a fuller formed person, it will be a concern. My shower box had only a cloth curtain, so the floor gets rather soaked. Lastly, the hot water only lasts several minutes, so you must shower very quickly. The hotel is only a 50-75m walk down the hill to the beach, which is very rocky, both on the shore and in the water. So bring rubber shoes. There are about 8 lounge chairs with umbrellas at no charge. Overall, I highly recommend this as a place to totally unwind. Owner Kostas can arrange any needs. His constant phrase: “ don’t worry; no problem!” You will be cared for here.

Absolute pleasure to stay at this hotel. Costos and family cannot do enough for their guests. We stayed for 10 days and it was perfect. The family restaurant was a little too far for me to walk (I'm disabled) so Costos took us and someone brought us back each time. We booked direct so a transfer from airport to hotel is complementary. Car hire is available at the hotel but we just wanted to relax and walked to local restaurants. I came home yesterday and would be happy to get on a plane and go back today. Withdrawal symptoms already!

Stayed for one week but wish it was longer. Hotel is amazing. Small and quiet. Kostas and his family are friendly and helpful. Boukari is a quiet resort with a few restaurants. No noisy bars. Beach is narrow and pebbles but crystal clear calm sea. Perfect for a relaxing peaceful break. Many thanks to Kostas and family. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

We booked with the hotel for 3 nights and when we arrived we were shown the room type we had booked and were then offered alternative accommodation in a nearby villa with a huge veranda with stunning views. The room was very nice but of course we were won over by the views from the veranda where we sat and enjoyed drinks as the sun set.. The owner of both the hotel and the villa/apartments was Kostas who is a natural host helping out guests with all manner of queries and keen to do whatever he can to help. Breakfasts at the hotel were buffet style with a good choice of typical English offerings eg toast, cereal, eggs and a tasty selection of homemade goodies including orange cake and a choice of fresh fruit and juices, tea coffee etc. The pool area is lovely and spotlessly clean with comfortable loungers. It is also surprisingly quiet and chilled with an outside bat to enjoy a tipple or two. Each evening we chose to eat at the taverna owned by the brother of Kostas which overlooks the sea and provided us with a delicious 3 course meal. Thank you Kostas for being such a good host and for such an enjoyable stay.

We have just returned from our second trip to Hotel Penelope and are already planning our third! Kostas is a wonderful and helpful host. Not only can he not do enough for you when you are there, he remembers you year on year. Our first stay, we were in the hotel itself, with a sea and pool view. Our second stay we are upgraded (in our opinion) to a beach side apartment, next to the lovely Boukari Beach Taverna, run by Kostas' brother Sophocles. Both rooms were immaculate, with a slightly nicer bathroom in the apartment. It is about a 10 min walk between hotel and taverna, so probably not the best if you are elderly, have mobility issues or have young children but for us it was perfect (and a much needed stroll due to all the good Greek food!!). As we have opted for the halfboard option each time, it made no difference to us whether we walked up to the hotel for breakfast or down to the beach for dinner. There are not many reviews that mention the half board specifically, so we will. In two words -do it!! For dinner each day you get included a salad (Greek or cucumber, tomatoes onions olives), a meze dip (tzatziki, aubergine salad etc), bread, a main and dessert. Sophocles (Taverna brother) is wonderfully accommodating, we were offered the option to choose our main and dessert from a number of options on a few nights. We also always purchased 'extras' -drinks, additional meze, sides etc. The additional food is not necessary, the portions are good, but when on holiday... The hotel benefits hugely from the lovely pool area, that was added last year. Here you can lounge, swim or have a drink groom the poolside bar. Breakfast is also served poolside each morning. Both trips we spent the majority of our time at the beach, alongside the taverna. You can watch the occasional boat, listen to the sea, read your books and swim in the crystal clear water. Also, the proximity to the taverna means you are only ever a friendly chat away from your next beverage or snack (these were just added to our dinner 'extras' each night, so we didn't need to carry change if swimming). Both the hotel and taverna have a little 'supermarket' (mini market/ corner shop type affair) next to them, so you can easily buy an ice-cream or your bottled water (you cannot drink the tap water in Greece). Our only piece of advice would be to bring some insect repellent as we were both nibbled one night. You can also buy plug-in insect deterrents from the shops, which worked well for us. We understand the hotel is a good base for exploring Corfu and beyond plenty of guests are doing this when we stayed and Kostas will organise taxis (fyi out is €45 from airport to hotel if you are not staying long enough to take advantage of the free transfers offered). However, we preferred to stay local and just enjoy the beach. If you're looking for a relaxing break where you can really unwind, enjoy the sea (and its food!) then we cannot think of a better place than here.
