A sandy beach and wildlife area are just 2 of the reasons this secluded hotel is so highly rated.
Little pastel-coloured buildings spill across manicured lawns here. Two minutes’ walk gets you to the beach. Ten minutes and you’re at Lake Antinioti, a great place to spot wildlife.
The hotel is nice and tucked away but there’s plenty going on in the way of activities and entertainment. There’s also a big pool with first-rate sea views – the restaurant here is great for taking in the sunset.

The good parts. The views were stunning and the grounds lovely too, well looked after. The cleaning staff worked solidly and everywhere was spotless. Two pools, both had plenty of space and sunbeds to go round. Non stop supply of drinks, tea/coffee, soft drinks or local red and White wines or beer. Nice walks around the coastline but thats about all there is to do in the local area, it's that remote. The parts to be improved on. Our room was very basic, I think some have been refurbished but ours was pretty poor quality, cold and the bathroom had definitely seen better days. The food, whilst plentiful, was very repetitive, lacking in flavour and almost no Greek food at all. And for some reason, carrots from the previous evening were always brought out for the breakfast buffet, very odd. The entertainment was lacking any imagination and the animation guy looked bored silly most of the time. The rep, Jason, was very vocal about how good he was (quoted himself as being in the running for top ten holiday rep in Europe) and yet he didn't seem to move from the front desk or interact with holidaymakers at all so not sure what criteria he was being judged on. He had an annoying and potentially offensive habit of describing everyone as 'wife swappers' which, given its a family holiday location was lacking in taste or manners. However, we were lucky enough to meet some lovely people and this, combined with the stunning views and relatively cheap cost that we paid means that all in all I can't complain too much.More

I have recently stayed here with my partner and we are both in our early(ish) twenties. The hotel was excellent value for money and we were very impressed. To start with the food was very good, there was a very wide selection of hot food, cold food, salads, breads, fruit and lots of nice desserts. I didn't see anything like chicken nuggets at all.. The food was good quality, we had beautiful lamb, pizza made from scratch, beef Wellington, roast potatoes, fondant potatoes.. You can also get snacks throughout the day like cheese toasties and cake.. The hotel lets you book a meal in their al le carte restaurant and pizzeria which gives a more formal dinning experience and at no extra costs! Drinks were good! I loved their choice of cocktails.. The apricot cooler has to be the best tasting one for me, they also do non-alcoholic kids cocktails. Both my partner and I loved the wine.. The red wine was very smooth and the White wine was a dry and refreshing. It was just the fanta and cola that didn't taste that good. The staff were unique... Everyone was so polite, so kind, quick and they work so hard so us as guests can enjoy our stay. Everyone I spoke to smiled and make you feel very welcome. They are very professional.. I have never seen such good service. Our room.. We had the standard room which was basic, I would of liked something a little better but that's my fault for not spending more on the better room! It was however very clean, spacious and had a nice view of the gardens. The beds are not that comfortable but you get used to it after the first night! The grounds were very well kept, I didn't see any rubbish on the grounds and everything was always very clean. The eating areas were all very nice and the main lobby looked good.. The pools were also very nice, we spent most of our time at the relax pool. There was plenty of sunbeds and there was the choice of shade if you'd like to get out of the sun. The pool was incredible, you had such lovely views of the grounds whilst your swimming and you can even see the sea. Most people who use that pool is mixed aged couples. The other pool was big and is somewhere for families and large groups, the animation team played games throughout the day there to keep them entertained. Both my partner and I didn't really sunbath down there as we wanted to relax.. There is a bar located at the bigger pool. At night the pools look stunning as they are lit up. Other amenities they have is volley ball, tennis courts, football courts, ping pong, ice hockey, pool, gym (very basic one!) and computers you can use for a small fee. We played a lot of tennis and ping pong which we really enjoyed. We had no problem using the tennis courts as you book yourself in for an hour slot. I would recommend taking some trainers just so you can have a go! The computers really frustrated me... I paid one euro for 30 mins and it took me 25 mins to log onto Facebook as it was SO slow!! The computer next to us was much quicker so I had to pay to use that one instead. The gym is basically all weights and there is two very basic static bikes and there is showers... But it doesn't matter as your not there to work out anyways you are there to relax! The entertainment was good, they begin with the children's entertainment which was the same CD played every night.. Although the songs were very catchy and the kids love it so I don't see that being a problem at all! It's actually good they do something for them before the actual entertainment anyways.. Once that was done with the real entertainment starts which is located down by the family pool area, where they have stage a bar and lots of seating for everyone. The Greek night was so so so good, I loved it! I was called up to dance and got to do a few moves standing on a table (which is traditional for the Greek dance). We even got to smash plates.. Which is something I have always wanted to do in Greece. The performers were very good, the two males and females put on a very good traditional Greek dance that left the whole audience stunned. Other shows included salsa dancing and live bands. The animation team were very good, there was 4 of them who get the crowds going, dance with the children and do they presenting. The main host speaks a number of different languages and makes everyone feel very happy. Throughout the performance he will speak these different languages so everyone understands what's going on.. English is the main language spoken as all other countries understand it! The location was quite rural.. Although most hotels are quite out the way and to be honest compared to most other hotels it's in a very good location. We had the option of three different beaches, out of two of them two were sandy and were very nice, the other was rocky and somewhere you can look out towards the Albanian mountains and be stunned. There was a small shop on the hotel grounds and a bigger shop a short walk away. There was a number of other restaurants located very close by.. Pyramid Bar is something you definitely have to try out! It looks incredible and the service there is very good! We didn't find the need to get a hire car at all.. For 5 euros you can get a return journey with the hotel to kassopi which is a little boat village with a lot of food places and gift shops, the hotel runs this service every day. They do other trips for a small fee.. We decided to travel with a very good company in kassopi run by two English women who arranged a boat trip to Corfu town for us, they even pick you up from the hotel, this cost us 18 euros each. We didn't see the need for a hire car as it doesn't cost a lot to use their travel services when they go to the main places anyways. But incase you did want a hire car the company Enterprise sit in the hotel and offer deals etc. There is also a travel company who can arrange trips to Albania and Corfu etc. To conclude I would say I really enjoyed my stay! It was perfect and what really made the holiday that bit special was the service from the bar staff and dinning halls. I loved the food and drinks. The area was stunning and I didn't want to leave! Wether your a couple (young or old), a family or a group of people it's perfect for everyone! 5/5 well done Mareblue Resort! :) More
Fantastic hotel, excellent value for money - Highly recommended :)
Beautiful resort, lovely grounds with two pools, one which is for relaxing if your looking for a quiet vibe and the other which has a bar, music and entertainment throughout the day. The room was extremely clean and modern, the bed and the shower were amazing and the whole room was cleaned daily. The buffet was lovely with a great selection of food including themed nights. The entertainment manager and his team were so much fun for the whole week, giving a great show every night with lots of "party warty" :) including many daily activities getting everyone involved. The area was quite remote but with a 10 minute bus ride that costs 5 euro you can travel to towns with more beaches, shops and bars. Would recommend for couples and family's, for a chilled but fun holiday. We had a great time with lots of memories and would like to thank everyone at the resort for being so welcoming and fun. would highly recommend coming here, the only downside was having to pay for the wifi and the balcony not being private enough.

Was here with some girl friends for a weeks break in the sun early in the season. This was excellent value for money, great food and service with friendly staff. The entertainment was good and quite varied. Two large pools with plenty of sun loungers and fab weather to boot.More

No Way 4 star
We went with First Choice and the hotel is nowhere near 4 star standard, or 4 and a half as in First Choice brochure. Although there was only two of us we were allocated a family room. The room was clean but was soulless and lacked any form of comfort. It was drab with no pictures or colour. Nothing like the hotel web site.. The bathroom was clean but only toiletries was a soap dispenser, no bath plug (we used an upturned cup) Bath mat appeared after 3 days. The sound insulation in the blocks was poor and we were awoken each night by returning revellers. There was no information on hotel facitities and the limitations of the all inclusive not even how to phone reception. 2 TVs but no English Channels. Wifi is 35 euros a week. Food is reasonable but lacking in variety. The best thing about the hotel is the grounds and the walks into the local countryside. Our return via Corfu airport was a nightmare . We had to waite in the sun for check in and to go through passportsMore
