Greece, Hotels & Spas


Corfu, oh beautiful Corfu…

One of the most beautiful islands we have ever been. So pure, so green, so blue… the mountains and sunsets, the swallows everywhere you can see. Nature screams “Love” on this island in every little corner. 

We traveled to Corfu to check out the best hotels on the island which are family friendly, because this time little 4 year old Maëlle was on board. All parents know that during holidays, the balance between kids animation and time for yourself is even more important in order to recharge the batteries. 

We were looking for something relaxing but still with some facilities/activities for kids and nothing with loud music and animation sessions in the pool (you probably know what I’m talking about)… We simply wanted something where adults and kids both can enjoy the stay to the maximum.

After our research we have found the perfect spot – The MarBella Corfu Hotel

(We have a little surprise on the bottom of the page for all travelers)

Upon arrival we got a fresh drink with roses, that was just right after coming from 35 degrees outside –  and it was quickly obvious, that we checked-in the right spot. Touched by the Ionian Sea, the recently renovated MarBella luxury hotel in Corfu, is a beach resort for memorable island holidays. You can just feel the island’s warmth amidst the lush landscaped gardens, you can enjoy a great range of high end facilities, benefit from exclusive services and discover the pleasures of island luxury in one of the finest Greek islands.

The hotel is beautifully situated amidst the olive grove and Agios Ioannis Peristeron beach offering a breadth of fun and amusing activities to enjoy. The exclusive vacation packages, the fine accommodation choices, the breath-taking sea view, the various dining options, the relaxing spa therapies and treatments along with the fun sports activities and water sports adventures ensure an unforgettable holiday experience for all guests at this luxury accommodation in Corfu.

Travellers visiting the island of Corfu with their family can benefit from a wide variety of complimentary essentials as well as the age-specific children amenities and services provided including children menus, modern comforts, a great range of entertaining and enjoyable activities, happenings, sports and events particularly planned for the younger guests.

The most fun thing was the kids pool area with a big water slide, where kids and adults could go together.

When the parents need a break, there is a great pool bar / restaurant, that takes care of all of your wishes, mine was called Apéro Spritz most of the time.

The 5 star MarBella beach resort is the ultimate venue for relaxing holidays, family vacations and romantic escapes.


What room did we take ?

We stayed in the “Family Room Sea View”

Over an area of  about 35 square meters the spacious Family Rooms with Sea View invite families to relax in a modern holiday retreat overlooking the sea. The bedroom and sitting area with the double sofa bed separated by sliding doors give families the privacy they deserve while the furnished balcony or terrace allow for moments of relaxation in view of the horizon.

Recently renovated the family rooms also feature one bathroom with a bathtub or shower and offer a series of high quality amenities for both parents and children to enjoy including Wi-Fi Internet connection, satellite TV, radio-channel, direct dial phone, mini-bar on request, hairdryer, organic Apivita amenities, air conditioning, private safety box, coffee and tea making facilities.

There are many more family rooms to check out on the website of the hotel, you can also book a suite with a private pool, made totally safe for kids.

In the evening we went out for dinner and the hotel offered a multi-language babysitter staff to stay with our kid. They would speak English, French, Spanish and Greek of course. The hotel made it so easy, it was just perfect 🙂

After a great breakfast and some 100 more water splashes we were a bit sad to leave, also because we knew how much little Maëlle enjoyed the stay and the fun kids pool… I hope to be back soon, with my new team member on board, of course!

MANY THANKS to the wonderful staff of the hotel, we are grateful for our stay and cannot wait to be back.
