This place is right on the beach, and it’s just a 5-minute walk from Gouvia’s bars and shops.
The Louis Corcyra Beach has an Asian restaurant and an international buffet place that was completely renovated in 2011. On the pools front, there’s a big lagoon number with a handy snack bar.
The hotel is nestled on a hillside among gardens. It’s just a flight of steps from a pebble beach, dotted with sunloungers and palapas. And Gouvia’s lively centre is just a five-minute walk.

Perfect Family Break
My wife & I travelled to the Louis Corcyra Beach Hotel for a week in June, with our daughter, who turned 2 just days after our return. It was the first time we had taken our daughter abroad, and we were glad that we decided to just go for the week, and will continue to do that until she is a bit older. The hotel itself is lovely, nicely decorated and our room (673) in the main hotel was ideal, with a double bed, a single bed and a travel cot in it, with ample space for my daughters pram too - the pram is highly recommended if you are taking little ones, the resort is a bit hilly, we were so glad we had taken ours. Our balcony was a good size too, with a partial view of the Lagoon Pool, we spent most of our time at the Lagoon Pool, but both pools are lovely. We also partially looked onto the car park from our balcony, but that was no issue for us, we didn't spend too much time on the balcony anyway. The food exceeded my expectations. Don't get me wrong, it was far from Michelin star, but if you book all inclusive you should know what you are getting. Decent food that is designed to suit hundreds of guests, not any easy task. I particularly enjoyed Greek night, possibly because I didn't expect to beforehand as my 2 worst foods are Aubergine & Courgette, but there was plenty to choose from as always. There are always 2 well stocked salad bars, too, which were pretty consistent in there content but varied slightly on themes - Caprese Salad on Italian night, for example. Breakfast was good, with pretty much every combo of eggs you could want, fried, boiled, scrambled and omelette, with French toast, bacon, sausage, etc. or cereals & porridge and loads of fresh fruit if you fancy a healthier/lighter option. Shortly after breakfast there is a light breakfast option at the pools, consisting mainly of pastries. Then, lunch starts, with a full lunch option in the main restaurant, or a mini version with Pizza at the Gouvino Pool, which was the better option for us. This Pool is beside the man made beach, so we went to the beach in the morning most days, had lunch at Gouvino Pool and walked back up to the Lagoon Pool. After lunch, the Lagoon Pool then offers snacks, there are always chips, baguettes and fruit, and then either burgers, hotdogs or similar, with the odd dessert thrown in some days. You then have evening meal as described earlier, themes from memory are Mediterranean, Italian, Greek, Middle East, Indian and you have the choice of the Asian Restaurant too, which we used once and enjoyed. The alcohol is local, of course, but I drink Gin & Tonic, my wife Peach Schnapps & Lemonade, and both were lovely and not a hangover in sight - of course, that's because we were both very sensible having the toddler with us, isn't it? ;) You have self service access to the beer, wine and soft drinks pretty much all day, with very friendly bar staff serving up the long drinks. There is also the option to pay for some branded drinks if you want to, I had a couple of nice brandies as I fancied one to cap the night off and the local stuff isn't for me. The entertainment in the hotel was good, my daughter loved most of it which is my main priority. They run a mini disco every evening from 8:30 - 9:30, then the main entertainment starts. The Brazilian show was excellent, the circus show was entertaining and the 3 singers who call themselves Il Divo were good too. The small town of Gouvia is a very short walk from the hotel, but didn't feel the need to travel outside of the hotel grounds. Perhaps we would if we had stayed longer, but there a few bars and places to eat there, as well as some shops and a pharmacy, that sells UK brands. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable break and I would recommend this hotel for people after a similar type of holiday.More

Brilliant weeks holiday after cruise
The location was lovely, right on the beach. The service was brilliant, the rooms excellent (we stayed in a bungalow) and reception couldn't be more helpful. Entertainment was varied. We found only downside was hotel on a hill and food not always to our taste. We had a lovely holiday and would go back.More

Fantastic hotel and holiday
We returned from Corfu last week following a most enjoyable holiday at the Louis Corcyra Beach Hotel. The hotel location is stunning, set in large, beautiful, well maintained gardens with amazing views. We had a sea view room and it was well worth the supplement. The family room in which we stayed was spacious and very clean, and the balcony was huge! The staff at the hotel were first class - exceptionally polite and helpful. They all worked incredibly hard and very long hours, and nothing was too much trouble. The Thomson reps based at the hotel were also great. The food was excellent. There was always a good choice and each night had a different theme. The pools were wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the lagoon pool near to reception. Obtaining a sun bed was never a problem whatever time we arrived at one of the pools. There is such a large choice of beds - round the pools, on the private beach, in the gardens - that there was never a scramble for beds in the mornings. What a pleasant change! Gouvia village is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There is a good selection of shops and tavernas in the village. Catching a service bus into Corfu Town in very easy and tickets can be purchased from the hotel shop for â¬1.50. We would highly recommend this hotel!!!!More

Lovely hotel, ideal location, wonderful views, but not a great 'all inclusive' proposition
First of all the great stuff: This is a fantastic hotel in terms of facilities and cleanliness. The hotel couldn't be better located, with stunning views across the bay, with the marina on one side, mountains on the other, and Albania's coast way off on the horizon. The staff are generally very helpful and provide great service, although some are quite surly, but the cheery ones more than make up for the others! We went as a family party, with two top floor sea view rooms - definitely worth paying extra for these. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. It's E3.50 per day to hire a safe deposit box, but we just got one between us. Beach/Pool towels can be hired from reception. It's a E10 deposit per towel, you can change them every 3 days and get a full refund on return of the towel and receipt at the end of the stay. If we'd known that before we would have just hired all our towels and saved suitcase space and weight. The facilities are excellent. There are 2 pools; one shallow lagoon pool and one deep pool. Both are great fun and very clean; just take care with little ones in the big pool. Our granddaughter is 6yo but her feet couldn't touch the floor in this pool. The grounds are meticulously maintained, and gardeners attend to the them every day. The toilets around the grounds are also very clean and well maintained. At the end of the grounds is the man-made beach. It's not great for kids, as the thin layer of sand is very much like gravelly builders' sand. There are steps down into the sea; I'd say it's about 2-3 feet where you enter the water. There's a little jetty off the beach, to service water sports and boat trips. The water at this beach is a little bit scummy, possibly due to fuel from the boats? Certainly, this was the only place I saw on Corfu that had less than clear waters. Thankfully the pools provide excellent compensation! So what's not to like?? My main gripe is with the 'all inclusive' package. Mealtimes provide a multitude of options, but like most such establishments trying to cater for large numbers, and multiple nationalities, they don't do any one thing exceedingly well. It's all mostly 'ok', although on one night there was nothing I fancied in all of the cooked meals so ended up having a large Greek salad (correction: this is one thing they do very well). I find 'all inclusive' to be a bit of a gamble, especially if there is an abundance of great local restaurants nearby. Fortunately, for us on this occasion, Gouvia is very disappointing as a resort, with a smallish number of bars and pretty unexciting restaurants. In my opinion, the Hotel does the bare minimum towards an All-inclusive service. As you'll read elsewhere, there's the suspicion that the alcoholic drinks are watered down or, if not, then they are brewed to be weak. As you might expect, the spirits are all 'no mark' brands, and the beer is branded 'Zorba's', a unique brand seemingly exclusive to the Hotel! It's pretty tasteless weak stuff. On the first night I had about 8 rum and cokes, an equivalent of which from branded products would have left me unconscious for 12 hours. Ice cream is available on self-service, but consists of a few ice-cream freezers with no-brand big tubs, which was quite difficult for our 6 year old to serve herself from. Snacks available outside mealtimes is pretty minimal and poor fare. Because of the facilities and the location, the good stuff more than outweighs the not-so-good. We did feel a bit cheated by the poor quality of the All Inclusive package though, and certainly felt that Gouvia didn't have a great deal to recommend it outside of the Hotel. Because of these factors I don't think we'd go back and would advise people to consider what's important to them if considering whether to book.More
The Corcyra Beach Hotel is situated in a beautiful bay and is very close to Gouvia village and Marina. We rated this as one of the best holidays we have had and will definitely go back. HOTEL The hotel itself is kept very clean and tidy. The grounds outside I felt let the hotel down a bit. The pathways are very uneven and not particularly pushchair or wheelchair friendly. The main one down to the lower part of the hotel consists of a series of steps. The grounds could do with more colourful plants. I have been to a similar hotel to this in Crete and the pathways were all sloping and the grounds very pretty. The hotel has a shop which is surprisingly well stocked and not to expensive, it also stays open late. I did like the fact that a hotel representative regularly walked around asking guests if they had any suggestions or problems. A minor moan of mine was acted upon very quickly, very impressed. There is WiFi available but it has to be paid for. POOLS The upper pool is a lovely lagoon type pool which is very large but not particularly deep. There is a large gently sloping area which is very safe for children. It also has a separate childrenâs pool. There is a lifeguard here who is on duty all day. Sun beds were plentiful and there were just about enough parasols. The lower pool is a conventional shaped pool and also has a childrenâs pool. There are 2 small beaches one of which is for adults. You can also do water sports from here. FOOD & DRINK There was an excellent selection and of very good quality, I didnât waste any food during my stay. The snacks at the lagoon pool were a bit limited but better at the lower pool. The beer and wines were all self service and very good (spirits not branded). My wife drank Blue Lagoon cocktails and said they were the best she has tasted for a long time. The sparkling wine is also included in the all inclusive and this was also very good. There is an Asian Cuisine restaurant which seems to be open at least 3 times a week. The waiting staff in the restaurants were very efficient but at times could do with being a bit more friendly. The same could also be said about some of the bar staff. There was a queue at the restaurant every evening at about 8 Oâclock, this was mainly caused by people wanting to eat out on the terrace. If you want to eat inside or eat earlier this shouldnât be a problem. ROOM The room contains the following, Air Con(worked well), fridge, hairdryer, TV and a safe(â¬3.50 a day). There is a shower and a bath, pool towels are available to hire for a â¬10 deposit. The room has plenty of storage space. ENTERTAINMENT The entertainment was of a good variety and should appeal to most guests. Day time activities are all based around the lower swimming pool which is a shame. I did make a suggestion to a hotel representative that some of the activities should be moved to the upper pool. OUT AND ABOUT Gouvia itself is bigger than I expected with plenty of places to eat out or just have a drink. I would recommend the following places if you just want a drink. The Tudor Inn a very welcoming place and the Melodies Bar where they have good entertainment on some nights. Gouvia Marina is worth walking to, I was very surprised to see a cricket pitch there. Cricket is apparently the most popular game on Corfu. We went on the Thomson all day island tour which we were a bit disappointed with. Didnât visit anywhere very pretty or interesting. The guide however was very knowledgeable. If you do go on this tour be aware of the following, women need to cover their knees and shoulders when visiting the monastery(will be provided for you if you donât). There is a â¬5 charge to get into Achillean Palace. And food is not included in the price.More
