Slotted between forested mountains and one of the best beaches in Corfu, the lti Louis Grand Hotel’s big pull is its peaceful setting.
Pretty panoramas are a dime a dozen here – everything from the pool to the restaurant terraces overlook the sandy beach. Most of the rooms are treated to sea views, too.
TripAdvisor awarded the lti Louis Grand Hotel a Certificate of Excellence in 2013. It was completely renovated for 2012, adding a new Asian restaurant and luxurious swim-up rooms.

one of the best hotels i have stayed at
The Louis Grand Hotel in Corfu is one of the best all inclusive hotels I have stayed at,we travelled with First Choice part of TUI ,Its a bit secluded but is a perfect place for a restful Holiday all of the staff are so pleasant and will do any thing to help you out,The rooms (Mine was looking at the hills out the back) are well furnished with TV coffee and tea making plus a fridge We got a bottle of fresh water everyday and the linen and towels were changed everyday.The food was excellent and a very good choice though out the day. I also have to remember the superb beach with its loungers and Sunshades . All in all a perfect place for for a relaxing holidayMore
Arrived back in UK on 12th May after a week at this hotel. To start with this is not a posh glittery hotel but one with a relaxing and comfortable feel to it. The hotel is situated on the side of a steep hill with mountains as a backdrop. The beach is a couple of steps from the pool and is clean with fine deep sand. The sunloungers are free for AI guests. Check in was about the quickest that I have experienced, no hassle at all. The room we had was a side sea view, we did "e" mail trying to get a full sea view but they were all taken. The room itself was not very large but was fine for two people. The cleanliness was spot on, the furniture and decoration excellent there was a reasonable sized balcony to sit on. The bathroom was fine but lacked finishing touches such as complimentary toiletries, the water pressure could be a bit erratic as well. The view unfortunately was not that good, yes we could see the sea and also the car park and the air conditioning plant, but you do not spend all your time in your room. Tea and coffee making facilities were supplied along with bottled water and a nice touch was a free bottle of wine waiting on arrival. The beds for us were fine, firm but not hard. I slept really well. Food and drink, Personally we thought the food was of a better quality than most of the other holiday hotels that we have stayed in. Breakfast was a mixture of continental, fry up, fruit and traditional Greek. Coffee or tea was offered at the table. Lunch could be taken at the main restaurant or in Sailors bar. We only ate in Sailors once and it seemed like a bit of a scrum so we opted to eat indoors, The evening meals were themed ie. Gourmet, Greek, Cypriot amongst others and were quite good. Spare a thought though for the waiting staff who worked extremely hard to keep the tables clear and serve the drinks, all with a smile. The beer was a local one and was not all that bad, a good range of cocktails was served alongside local spirits. In the evenings in the main bar you even had waiter service. The staff in the pool bar were great. Entertainment was not spectacular, Some usual singers who do the rounds and Karaoke (why do people think they can sing after a few drinks?) so we did not see any. The pool was a bit cold but once in OK. The animation team were around trying to get guests to join in but were not in your face about it. The very hard working staff were always polite and smiling. We were greeted by a Kalimera wherever we went. Senior management were always around as well. Check out a swift as check in, seamless. Do not listen to all the moaners about this hotel. It is good and I would come back here any time.More
I found it a bit boring and basic!
Me and my husband visited the Louis Grand the first week of May. It's our first holiday since our honeymoon last October. We arrived around 10pm as we had a late flight. The restaurant was already closed so they sent up some 'cold plates' for us. My husband is quite picky so we weren't optimistic. When it arrived it was some sort of egg salad, a small piece of ham, a bread bun with no butter and something that looked like sushi! And some fruit. We went to bed pretty hungry. I personally didn't enjoy breakfast. I found it very poor. Scrambled eggs didn't taste right at all to me. Bacon was strange and very fatty. The sausages are literally just hot dogs. The quality of the bread for the toast isn't great either. The best thing about this place is the beach. It's a lovely peaceful place to chill and paddle in the warm sea. The hotel is very remote. There's nothing around at all. We're used to going on more adventurous holidays like Florida and California. I knew it wasn't in a party town but I thought there might have been some shops or bars. You can go on the free bus into Corfu which is a very uncomfortable drive. The bus is so hot and sweaty with bumpy roads and takes around 30 minutes each way. The last bus you can come back on from Corfu town is 2:15. So you can't even spend the evening there without needing a taxi which someone told me can be up to â¬35 depending who you go with. Our room was very nice. We paid extra for a sea view room which is well worth the money. You receive a free bottle of water in the room daily as the tap water isn't drinkable. It's really nice on an evening when everyone has retired to bed to sit out on the balcony watching the waves. The bathroom is very dated, brownish coloured tiles with bright orange painted walls. Makes it very dark when in the shower and bath. The bath is possibly the narrowest one I've ever seen. Was very uncomfortable so I preferred the shower. The weather was great all week. Most people just laid on the sun beds for 7 days but we find that incredibly boring after a while. We did enjoy the pool, which was empty most of the time! I bought a big inflatable from the small shop located at the front of the hotel. My husband bought a small body board to float on too. We're glad we got them as we even took them into the sea when the waves were calmer. The nudist area on the beach which is located extremely close to the hotel is filthy! Orange peels, old drinks containers left abandoned on the sand! Most of the people in the hotel are more mature couples. I'd say around 65+ only a few couples and families. The entertainment was pretty much the same thing every single day. The kids disco is the most repetitive thing I've witnessed. The same songs. Every day. It became very irritating. Because there's nothing around for miles, you're almost forced into listening to it. It was handy having the Thomson reps on site for any questions you have. We only needed to speak to them about our pick up time but there's plenty of excursions to book through them. For me, the biggest problem was the wifi. It's not reliable in the slightest. I struggled so much to Skype my parents back home which I hated. I always like to check in and see my family but just couldn't. As soon as it got to Friday and more people arrived, the wifi got even worse. I could barely send an iMessage! Don't even try to put Netflix on! It would be buffering all night! We noticed the paperwork given to us at check in with all the times for the bars and restaurants was actually filled with wrong dates and times. It says the Asian restaurant is open on different days than it actually is. It says the main restaurant opens at 12:30 for lunch so we got ready to go down for then, to discover the times on the door says it opens at 12:45. On this particular day the door didn't open until 12:55. So we and about 30 other people were just stood around for nearly 30 minutes waiting for lunch to start! That same day we had ate 3 courses, had every single plate still in front of us as we left. Not enough staff to clear tables and take drinks orders. You're often sat waiting a long time before you can ask for another drink. The 'snack' times (late breakfast and late night) are pathetic. A loaf of bread with no butter and a plate of cheese. Sometimes some crackers if you're lucky. The desserts don't have any labels so you just have to guess what it is. Sometimes a chocolate cake is tiramisu, some days it's a chocolate orange cheesecake. But you don't know until you bite into it! The food overall isn't any special. I've stayed in 3* hotels that have the same style and quality of food. It's just basic buffet style. The drinks machine in the main restaurant always seems to serve flat Coke. Every single time I got a Coke from there, it was just water and syrup! Personally, I found a lot of the food to be very bland. Not enough seasoning or spices. I got something that looked like a Thai red curry, (a lot of the time they forget to label the food) it genuinely tasted of nothing! All of the rice dishes are bland and boring. Even though they all look nice and full of veg or seafood, they're all boring. The beach bar staff are usually really friendly. But there's a young man who was very rude. My husband ordered me a Malibu and Coke. When I tasted it I thought it was possibly vodka, was just a strong alcohol taste. Definitely not the coconut drink I'd been enjoying all week. So he took it back to the bar where the young member of staff started arguing saying he'd make me another but this one was definitely Malibu and Coke and was very cocky about it. Then a different staff member came over and told him that Bacardi and Malibu were different things and he did actually make the wrong drink. Only then did he apologise. The staff aren't very consistent. We would order cocktails and have to wait at the bar for them to make them. Others would order the same thing and they'd be told to find a seat and they'd bring their drinks to them. Not once where we offered table service in the bar. The outdoor restaurant near the bar is completely shaded and there's only a few tables in the sun. On our last day I was sat shivering after my lunch and wanted to eat a couple of pieces of baklava in the sun. I walked a few feet out of the restaurant to the wall opposite which is right in the sun. A member of staff came running over to me saying the hotel is FULL of signs saying you can't take plates out of the restaurant, I was honestly a matter of feet away from it. He demanded I sit back in there to eat. So I just put the plate down in there and left.. wasn't really in the mood anymore. These signs are little A4 pieces of paper dotted around with about 4 different languages on, if you don't go right up to one, you'd never know what it was about! The writing is tiny! Not very clear at all! Overall the hotel is in a lovely area, the location is gorgeous but for me, that's all it had going for it.. I found the actual hotel (food, drinks, staff and entertainment) very basic. We found ourselves bored most nights. We just played card games by the bar. There's no bars or restaurants around for a change of scenery. I'd recommend this hotel to people who don't mind just laying in the sun all day who literally just want to chill. But for us as a young couple who wanted to experience Greece, it just wasn't right and I would not return. More
Short break 3 nights after a week cruise around Greece, Cyprus and Turkey
The hotel is a 4* and it is beautiful. The food was great, staff amazing and the swimming pools were large and really clean. The patios in the bedrooms on ground floor allow you to walk straight out to the pool which was amazing. Gym was slightly outdated but all machinery worked and the gym had good air conditioning. Lovely way to finish off our cruise in a quiet relaxing resort. Worth every penny. Thank youMore
Breath taking views and relaxing location
Arrived here a week ago and sad to be leaving. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday away from it all this is definitely the place to come and recharge. Food excellent, great selection. Staff very friendly and can't do enough for you. All facilities kept clean. Recommend getting room with a sea view. And definitely try out a massage... You won't be disappointed. sunsets stunning and sandy beach, would definitely come again.More
