Flanked by acres of greenery and right on the seafront, the TUI Family Life Kerkyra Golf showcases the best of Corfu’s scenery.
The TUI Family Life Kerkyra Golf is in a great spot for families. This hotel was formerly known as the Louis Family Resort. It’s set in spacious gardens, which means you’ve got room to stretch out. On top of that, you’re only ever steps from a small shingle beach.
Outside there are two pools. In terms of where to eat and drink, you’ve got a buffet place, a Greek Taverna and an Asian restaurant.

Well run family hotel
We stayed in August, and though the hotel was at capacity, it never seemed over crowded. This was thanks to a major plus for the hotel - it's expansive grounds. There is plenty of space for everyone and we could always find a sunbed available. The pools are great. Food was pretty good - not the best AI I've had, but it was well prepared and tasty with a decent variety. The included ice-cream is very poor - easily the worst I have seen at an AI resort. The drinks were a bit of a let down too. The dispensers were often out of action, beer was flat. There could be long waits to be served. Cocktails were good though. The entertainment is mostly poor, and the area around the stage isn't nice for an evening drink with cheap plastic tables and plastic cups for drinks. The main bar is nicer, but getting a table can be difficult. We knew before we booked that the hotel is isolated - apart from a couple of shops, there really is nothing of interest outside the hotel gates - just a busy dual carriageway.More
Just what the doctor ordered..
Booked this last minute, what a gem.. My wife emailed the hotel and requested a sunny balcony and we were not disappointed. We had room 207, perfect for us, nice large balcony with views of the Cruise ships over in the harbour. The sun was on the balcony all day, lovely to watch the sunrise and sunset. On arrival, the receptionists greeted us with a smile and were quick and efficient at booking us in, a drink was waiting for us as well.. The room was bright and airy and kept spotlessly clean. 2 large single beds pushed together with another smaller single bed in the room, the beds were very comfortable. There is a safe in the room that cost 3.5 Euro per day, i always think in AI the safes should be free, but thats just me. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the room along with a small fridge, we used to ask for a glass of milk to take to our room for our early morning cuppa. You get a bottle of water left in your room daily. The bathroom was the standard hotel room, a shower over a full size bath, hairdryer and soap/shower gel dispensers. The wardrobe hanging space was good and plenty of drawer space. The food in the restaurant was good quality (try the beef stifado, amazing..) My wife is a very picky eater but i can honestly say she enjoyed every meal..there was even a hot pudding every night, jam roly poly and custard was a welcome surprise,, there is an Adults only section of the restaurant where we ate, as we were child free for the week, (our Grandkids were not impressed that we went without them..) there is also a lovely outside eating area. We were looked after superbly by Antonia and Stelios, always making sure our drinks were topped up and we had everything we needed, they really were a credit to the hotel. The food in the snack bar was also very good if you didn't want to use the main restaurant at lunchtime, a selection of salads, breads, chips, pizza etc and my wife's favourite Calzone. Here, as in the main restaurant theres self serve drinks, all 3 wines, beer, water soft drinks and tea/coffee. There is an Adult only raised are between the 2 pools, i family pool and 1 quiet pool. Although the quiet pool is a good idea, with no inflatables allowed etc, this isn't enforced and a few didn't seem to be able to read the signs and quite a few peoples relaxing reads were disrupted, i dont understand why they didn't go in the family pool? i think the lifeguards should have enforced this rule more rigorously. There was plenty of sunbeds available but i dont know what it would be like in high season. The hotel did remove towels that were left on sunbeds before 8am which i thought was a good thing as there were plenty to go round and there really wasn't any need for it (please note it wasn't the Germans who were doing this, yes, all English..) The entertainment was good throughout the day with all sorts going on, very friendly and not pushy if you declined, they always stopped to have a chat. The evening entertainment was centred around the Amphitheatre, with the entertainment team putting on shows, they tried hard and it was entertaining. There was also opera singers in the main bar one evening, these were excellent, other nights were quizzes etc. The quality of the drinks were surprisingly good for AI and they have the answer to Tom Cruise in Nicos in the main bar, my wife says the cocktails (all freshly made to order) were the best she has ever had, try the cosmopolitan its a work of art.. We sampled both A la carte restaurants, we enjoyed the Greek but the Japanese was outstanding. My wife has a fish allergy and the chef Theo, made her a special dish, superb service. We were well placed for the short journey into Corfu town, the bus stop is at the end of the drive, also the airport is only a 15-20min journey away. This was our first time at a family life hotel and im sure it wont be our last. We normally take our Grankids to First choice holiday villages, but will certainly consider family life in the future. All in all, a great last minute, week away in the sun, well done Family Life Kerkyra Golf..More

Wonderful family holiday
We stayed here toward the end of September just about the time that the stormy front was upon Corfu! The weather for us was great actually, having a little one that is really fair means we don't really want wall to wall sunshine. The storms were brief and the Thompson staff done a grand job of entertaining during the wet spells. Anyway, on with the actual hotel review! Very short transfer from the airport, first impressions of the hotel were great, Thompson reps on hand seeing if anyone needed a hand. Refreshments in reception and check in was quick and friendly. We requested a safe and were told to settle at the end of the holiday. We had a room on the top floor about 4 rooms in from the lift area. Our room overlooked the countryside and whilst the sea view was spectacular, you lost the sun through the day. We had the afternoon sun into the evening which was lovely. Yes you could hear people coming past in the corridor but you'd hear them carpet or no carpet! We had opted for a family partition room. Room had plenty wardrobe space, bathroom had bath with shower over it. Fridge was a decent size and bottled water left daily. Kettle and tea/coffee left too, just enough for one a day. Room had a king size bed and through the partition there were two single beds. The pillows were lovely, not the hard continental type! Plenty of drawers to put things away. I think the partition is a good idea but made the room feel smaller that it was. The rooms were kept spotless and we had fresh linen at least twice through the week and towels each day. The food in the buffet was lovely, always a good variety and well organised. There is a small outside eating area but we preferred to stay indoors away from the mossies! You can help yourself to drinks and they had carafes for your wine which was a nice touch. High chairs were cleaned thoroughly and readily available. We ate in the Asian restaurant which was lovely. The poolside restaurant offered plenty of choice during the day if you didn't want to head into the buffet. Self service drinks at the pool bar. Yes there were wasps but they really aren't interested in stinging you, they just want the pop! They did have some smoke deterrent things and these helped but they could have used them more often. Pools are nice and warm and well maintained. There is a lovely play area and an indoor soft play. Grounds are spacious and you don't feel like you are on top of each other. I think the hotel was about half full. The hotel staff and the Thompson staff are a credit to this hotel. Always available and on hand but not in your face. Had a slight altercation with one sultry maid but I can't mark the hotel down for that one incident. I've given the hotel a 5 because they genuinely deserve it. Short transfer back to the airport...I had left my jacket in the wardrobe and another rep brought it to the airport, much appreciated! I'd advise bringing something to eat with you to the airport if you have little ones as the airport is chaos and always has been! Please feel free to ask any questions, happy holidays. More
Extended Family holiday
Annual family holiday with extended family including grandparent, teen and a 6 year old. looked for a family friendly hotel which was affordable in the school holidays but stilled offered a nice all inclusive option. As I'm late writing this review I'll just bullet point details as I remember them but overall it was a great holiday and I'd go back. Pro's Great pools - sat at both but the larger one gets very busy and yes you have to get up to get your towels out but there's lots of grassy areas if you don't need to be right by the children's pool. Daytime water based activities good including daily water aerobics at 11am. Food good choices all round, can be busy especially if you want an outside table. rooms ok - we had a variety between us - paying for the sea view is definitely worth it as the 'mountain view ' wasn't great. Drinks in all inclusive were great especially the white wine and cocktails were best we've had on an all inc. Staff - wonderful. We had an illness in the party while we were there which resulted in an ambulance and hospital visit - the staff were great at the time and lovely follow up - couldn't have asked for more. Didn't see the Thomson rep once. Cons The year we went the evening entertainment wasn't very good - aimed at smaller children (my 6 year old loved the early bit) but then the later entertainment for the adults wasn't great. this will probably depend on the skills of the reps each year. WiFi (according to the Teens) was 'rubbish' only really worked in reception area - where you'd find everyone over 13 trying to get online! Overall very nice family holiday.More

Lovely family holiday
Stayed at the Kerkyra Golf in June 2016. The reason I didn't give the holiday 5 stars is due to a few minor niggles, but overall the holiday was great. Positives: Room - very clean, stunning views over the pool & bay, cleaned daily, spacious, partition rooms great for putting little ones down to sleep Food/eating - like all AI holidays, it can be a bit repetitive, but the food there was hot, tasty and plentiful. 3 year old daughter loved the ice-cream Drinks - appreciated having glass in evening when not at the pool bar Pools - maybe a touch cold as not heated in the summer, but great fun and little one appreciated the graded entrance into the pool Staff - friendly and helpful Reps - probably the best bit for kids - they were on site all day/night and nothing was too much trouble. Top class. Sleep - great as the bed was comfy and no issues with noise Niggles Beach - not the hotel fault - but whilst the location was stunning, the beach, which Thomson said there was one - isn't a beach - its gravel and not very nice - therefore don't go expecting a beach holiday. Location - whilst the outside view is stunning there is little else around and involves a taxi to get outside - so again, prepare for this Poolside bar - there was glass on 2 of the 7 mornings we went to the pool, which was a hangup from drinkers the previous evening. It was cleaned in the morning, but by then there were kids in the pool - it says no glass, but obviously was ignored and should be cleaned up in the evening Pool/sunbeds - biggest gripe - although there are signs up, you had to be up at 7am to get a sunbed, as after 9am, all had gone. This should be policed. Summary Overall a lovely hotel and fun holiday. Not for older kids/teenagers and not a place if you want to relax (even the quiet pool) - but what do you expect with a Family Life.More
