THANK YOU FOR 50 YEARS

THANK YOU FOR 50 YEARS

This year, Delfinia Hotels have been celebrating their 50th year. As much as it is about the hotels’ great location, beautiful gardens and atmosphere of comfort and ease, it is the hotel’s staff that have consistently brought life and heart into it.

Some of our members of staff have been with us since they were young adults and others for a good two decades or so. Mr. Kostas Lambiratis as well as being the most capable and heartwarming Front Office Manager, is also the oldest serving member of staff.

Among the 65 people working at Delfinia hotels we have a father and his two daughters, a mother and son, two pairs of sisters and a couple that have met and had a child together while working here. We feel this is what truly makes us a successful family orientated hotel.

“There’s love in what we do!” says Maria at Reception. “This is my home. I grew up here, in this beautiful environment, with these people. It is like a world onto its own.”

The largest department is Cleaning & Maid Service which is comprised of fifteen wonderful women, lead by the beautiful Ms. Helen Niziri . During our recent end of 50th year staff celebration lunch, each department led a dance: the cooks, the bar tenders, the maître and his team, the accountants, the gardeners, maintenance and of course reception.

Daniela our wonderful Activities Coordinator here at Delfinia Hotels, whose nature and village walks, particularly in early summer and autumn are very popular, was already off on another adventure.

Mr. Nikos Kritzalakis, the current Hotel Manager calculated that 7,500 guests visited Delfinia Hotels in 2017 and that 250,000 guests would have enjoyed the hospitality of Delfinia Hotels in these past fifty years. That’s a staggering number considering that the population of Corfu is around 120,000.

Words fall short in cases like this, to express the gratitude and respect that is due.

ΕΥΧΑΡΙΣΤΟΥΜΕ – THANK YOU

Here’s to another 50 years with all of you!
