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.

Best holiday I've ever had
And I do truly mean that. I came to the mareblue as my mum went last year and raved so much I had to see for myself. It's a fabulous resort in a serene setting with plenty to do for all ages. The food is brilliant and there's something for everyone to enjoy. Entertainment staff are top knotch and I will be going back next year!!! I love the Rokas family x More
Lovely hotel, terrible food
Positives: Beautiful hotel, lovely grounds, amazing views, friendly hardworking animation staff. Negatives: Food was not good at all. Repetitive or reinvented left overs. All tomato based sauces had a bizarre after taste? What was it? I am the least fussy eater ever, I love all foods, but I was so fed up, it really ruined the holiday for me. I ended up eating bread and butter or chips! (Not my idea of holiday food!).We did arrive at the end of the season, but that should not affect the standards of food being served. The buffet style had so much potential too but the cooking really let it down. The only decent thing was the apples and the baklava! This needs looked into. If the food was up to a better standard then I would have possibly went back next year but seriously put off. As for people slating the weather or mozzies, flys or wasps, thats just silly. Come prepared with mozzie spray and bin food lying or drinks cups as soon as you are done! Simple. 100% deet spray does the trick. Again, would have rated more but food was horrid. Bleeeuuughh!More
A lovely stay!
My boyfriend and I stayed here mid October this year and have a lot of positives surrounding the resort and some not so positives! We'll get the negativity out of the way first - the pool closes at 7pm which seems very early, and they put chemicals through it nearly every night making it very harsh on the eyes - take goggles! The food is very basic - it is mass catering after all, but having all three meals provided for you on seven consecutive days, it gets repetitive, you can tell things are reused and reheated. They attempted an "Asian theme night" which was appalling! The shower in our room was pinned very low down which resulted in sit down showers or holding it above your head! There is almost nothing to do in the evenings, it could be the time of year we went, where everything is closing down, but they don't really cater for everyone with their "entertainment". The restaurant is bustling and hard to have an enjoyable meal to be honest, you can't really talk to each other over the hubbub, especially when there are a large number of children there who are tired and ready for bed - but dinner doesn't start until 7! There is an a la carte restaurant which you are entitled to enjoy one evenings meal there - book as you check in!! We tried to book a table on our second day and were laughed at, literally! They don't have enough seats in that restaurant to provide for the amount of guests staying. Yet every night as we sat down to dinner in the main restaurant, we could see empty seats throughout the a la carte, and on more than two occasions had to take our buffet food in there due to lack of space. Now... That being said, it was a really fantastic holiday! The staff were all really lovely, apart from one singular bar tender who was a grump! Otherwise they were all very willing and eager to help. We were welcomed and introduced to the area and the opportunities around. There is an adult only pool which is very quiet and peaceful and a larger family pool that overlooks the ocean. The bars are open late and the drinks are tops. Our room was lovely and airy, and always spotless. We used the safe which was 4E a day, but worth the peace of mind. We had a big balcony and a lovely view. We hired a car and drove to Paleokastris which is an incredibly beautiful place that I definitely suggest visiting if you can! They do offer a coach trip there. We took the boat to Corfu Town which was a great trip, but lots of places were closed as it was nearly the end of the season, definitely try your luck at haggling because we got some really great deals! We took the boat trip to Albania which was a really terrific day out - though VERY physical! It should have been clear just how physical this trip is, there is walking for over three hours and up and down steep hills, and lots of getting on and off of a coach! You also have to pay 10E tax to get across the ocean and if you want to do the tour that is another 23E which includes lunch. It's definitely worth it though. A very short walk out of the resort brings you to a lovely secluded little beach where you can rent pedalos and boats. We took a pedalo out onto the ocean and went around the caves and swam in the sea - bliss! Be aware though that they do charge you to sit on the sunbeds there - 8E for the day :) By this beach is a number of amazing restaurants and bars. We spent two whole days in Ammus, where you can use their pool for free as long as you have drinks. We bought two drinks for the whole day and enjoyed practically exclusive use of the pool, which was much clearer and kinder on the eyes!! The transfer is pretty long, nearly two hours, and it's tough in the middle of the night. There was a mix up with our return and we were a little late, but then the plane left early, getting us home about 45 minutes before expected! Overall, it was a brilliant holiday and we had a fantastic time. Make sure you take advantage of the excursions on offer. The best times to eat are at the beginning or the end of the allotted times due to how busy it can get in there and how loud it can get with all the kids!More

went here with my daughter the last week in september for some late sun. I had never, although my daughter had, done a fully inclusive holiday and this hotel has definitely changed my thoughts of this type of holiday. The hotel itself is spread over a large space all buildings only 3 stories high and all themed around James Bond - we stayed in Pussy Galore :} Although the room we stayed in was a bit basic it was very clean and catered for our needs (twin) however we did look into some of the double rooms and they looked very nice. The staff were all so very friendly, the food was always plentiful and every meal was different from the last. We ate in the a la carte once and the waiting staff that worked here and also in the restaurant were the nicest people you could wish to meet. The alcohol ,although local was so good we could not tell the difference. With regard to the mosquitos yes there were loads but we didn't get one bite as we used lifesystems expedition 50+ insect repellent spray (available online). It did get rather cold in the evenings so take a few jumpers. All in all would definitely recommend and returnMore

Some good some bad
Corfu itself seems a little run down from the parts that I saw (north of the Island) But it is beautiful when the sun shines. For the week we were there (End of October) weather was pretty good, sunny and warm most days, with a bit of rain and storms at the end of the week, and getting colder. The Hotel: Grounds and rooms are really good, very nicely laid out, the pool areas both very nice, the only downside being swimming pools are not heated and way too cold to get into, so not really of any use. Maybe in the middle of summer it is hot enough to bare it. The Food & Drink (All inclusive): We have not tried all inclusive before, so hard to compare. Initially we were thinking 'this is pretty good' But our enthusiasm waned as the week went on...the same dishes every morning, afternoon and evening. Carrots for breakfast? Sprouts in various combinations for every meal? 'Fried Chicken Giblets' as the main meal choice? It was the same thing again and again every day, which we got sick of. We even went on a day trip to Corfu Town, to find something different to eat. The desserts that everyone raves about were just cream and pastry, cakes and gateau's that had travelled through time from the 70's, made with food colourings that were probably banned in the U.K many years ago! The ala Carte menu was a laugh, watery soup, same old tasting main course and dessert consisting of a 50p sized rock hard meringue, chopped up apple bits, squirty cream and half strawberry. Mosquitos: Personally we came prepared, with a bit of Citronella spray and did not have any bites, but we saw others that did. Our room was down near the main pool, furthest from the lagoon area, so that may have also helped. Location: Great, but quiet, not a lot to do in the area, some lovely little beaches nearby, to the left and right of hotel. Pyramid bar very nice with mini golf and childrens playground area. There is a shop just down the road from main exit, which organises cheaper priced day trips than 'Lords travel' (in the hotel lobby) Confused by reviews of helpfulness of rep and hotel staff, they seemed concerned with their own affairs and contact with customers was a distraction, overall not helpful. Whilst i type this, all the staff are having an end of season party, guests are left to fend for themselves. Entertainment: Ahem, what entertainment? A raffle? To win drinks? That we get free anyway? That was about it apart from playing a lot of dubious music tapes from the 90's Overall: A good but quiet location if you want to get away from it all, bring a few good books or something to entertain yourself. Food, very basic and always the same, alcohol wasnt particularly nice, so we stuck to soft drinks. Would not visit again unless it was a last minute bargain for rock bottom price.More
