Mareblue Beach

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.

Good Hotel.

Just returned from 1 week here. A very good hotel with reasonable food , staff were very polite as is the majority of people on the island. Obviously there are negatives just like any holiday , the biggest one for us was the mosquitos and midges. Rooms were clean and the entertainment team work really hard , the night time entertainment was very enjoyable , the pool bar can get busy fro drinks during the evening , perhaps a proper queuing system should be implemented. There's an a-la-carte restaurant and an Italian restaurant , we only had the Italian , it was really nice , the a-la-carte was fully booked for our stay . We went on four excursions , 3 booked via our rep and 1 booked with the hotel. Day trip to Sidari , Beauty spots of the North , Corfu Sundownwer , Quad Safari . The last one was booked at hotel , all were really good with amazing views. The bus drivers from Sidari travel deserve a medal for driving on the roads , some are really tight and twisty hairpins as well as narrow streets especially on the beauty spots of the north.More

Great holiday but disappointment at check out

We stayed at the Mareblue for one week as a family of five. This was a late change as we were originally booked to go to Tunisia prior to the sad events, we transferred our holiday with four weeks to departure, there was little choice and we opted for the Mareblue, this turned out to be a good choice. Transfer to the resort was around 1 hour 40mins on the coach, but the journey back was only just over an hour, maybe as we were the last pick up. The hotel is in a great setting looking over the sea and you can see Albania across the water, the views are fantastic and hotel grounds are very well kept, it is worth getting up early to see the sunrise. On arrival at around 2pm we had to wait for our rooms, this was okay as we were able to have lunch and have a look around the hotel. Upon receiving our room keys our suitcases were waiting at our rooms. We had booked two rooms and were pleased to be placed in the same block, 'Goldfinger', I was pleasantly surprised by this as we had a lovely sea view room yet had not paid to upgrade our room when booking, I was expecting to be in one of the blocks further back. The rooms themselves were good, bathroom facilities are good once you get used to holding the shower head, the rooms had a mini fridge, hairdryer, air conditioning and a TV with several English channels although you don't go away to watch TV. If you are a football fan they show many of the premier league games to your room as well as in the lobby bar. Rooms were cleaned very well every day, despite us leaving towels on the rack for another use towels were changed daily. There are two swimming pools, the main pool with a small children’s pool which is set at the bottom of the resort just above the beach and the relax pool at the top, this is for 18+ only and a quiet alternative to the main pool where there is activities going on all day. One thing to note about both the pools is the maximum depth is 1.40m so I would be a bit worried about children jumping/diving in. Despite having no younger children with us we opted for the main pool each day as the views are amazing, it is close to the beach so you can visit the beach and we enjoyed joining in some of the activities such as aqua fit, water polo and volleyball. Whilst there are plenty of sunbeds be prepared to have to get up early if you need any more than two together and would like a parasol (these are fixed into the ground) as many were reserved by 8am, however I did notice people managing to get the odd sunbed up to about 11am but these would not be in a good spot with no shade so it is just worth putting your towels out early, you can't beat them so you have to join them! This does not seem to be as bad at the quiet pool with only a few beds reserved. At the hotel there is also a mini mart which sells any essentials you may have forgot as well as drinks and snacks, if you are going soon check out the cute mum and two tiny kittens that hang around here, the shopkeepers look after them and they have become very friendly due to everybody stopping to stroke them. The food was what we have come to expect of all inclusive. Breakfast consisted of cereals, pastries, fried breakfast and continental options, only criticism about breakfast is that the coffee was often cold. We ate lunch by the pool bar which had salad options, fresh bread and a few warm choices, some of us paid the 1 euro for a traditional kebab and really enjoyed these each day. At dinner there was fresh bread, really nice salads, a soup and then hot food but this was quite repetitive, the ‘kids buffet’ consisted of two things, usually tomato pasta and something else so I imagine fussy children would struggle. I am a vegetarian and really enjoyed the salads, these were great and I was quite happy with this but I rarely found something hot to eat at dinner time, I have seen others comment otherwise, maybe I was over cautious as I will normally eat anything as long as I know it is vegetarian but many things were not actually labelled. The main restaurant itself is very manic with people crowding the main hot food section and many pushing in, this can be frustrating and doesn’t give you an opportunity to actually look at what there is. Nobody starved but we didn’t really enjoy the food on some nights, although deserts were nice. We booked the hotels own Italian/pizzeria and Greek restaurants when we arrived after reading these get busy, it was nice to eat out of the main restaurant and the best thing about the Italian was eating outside, you get three courses which were all nice. The meal at Olives was the best we had at the hotel, the setting is lovely overlooking the sea, you get a starter, sorbet, salad, main and desert and I imagine you would pay a lot of money for the equivalent at home, the food was all gorgeous and we all left clear plates. In terms of drinks the cocktails were nice and the beer was okay, very watered down, soft drinks, mainly the coke, are disappointing at first but you soon get used to them and they are then okay. Ice creams are available all day and these were nice, it was a shame that snacks from the snack bar consist of toasties, it would have been nice to have pizzas even at a small charge seeing as though they were right next to the pizzeria. Entertainment was very good in comparison to other hotels we have stayed at and they get talented acts in. The fire night was really good and we also enjoyed the Greek night and Latino dancers. Animation team were good, we got on well with Zico. We didn’t stay by the bar every night as we opted to go to the Pyramid bar, it gets mentioned a lot on here and I can see why. It is in a gorgeous setting and you can tell the owner has put a lot of money into the place as they have thought of everything, even the toilets are spotless! There are several areas to sit and really nice furniture, you can sit by the sea, have a drink and watch the sunset. Drinks are great, they have many of the top brands and the cocktails are amazing. Service is also great, the staff are all very friendly and work really hard to man the large area and do so very well. There is also mini golf and go karts for children and wifi is free for customers, they show all the televised English football games and we opted to watch them here on the big screen. We ate here one lunch time and it was the best meal we had all holiday, reasonably priced and complementary fruit platter at the end. All in all we had a brilliant holiday; on one day we went on a boat trip to Corfu town which we enjoyed. Other reviewers are right when they say the hotel is secluded but we liked this, if you want to be able to walk around and explore this is not the place for you, we always found plenty to do at the resort with the two beaches, pyramid bar and taverna nearby. The only major criticism of the hotel is that when checking out we were told we had two outstanding bar bills from separate days. These were not ours as we did not purchase any drinks at the hotel during our stay. When we said this was a mistake the receptionist presented us with two signed receipts, as the hotel print your name on the receipts for setting up a tab somebody had forged my signature on the two occasions and enjoyed drinks such as stella billed to our room. We questioned how they had been able to do so without any identification or even the room key, the receptionist became very rude claiming ‘I don’t know how it has happened but it means my till is down’ threatening us with the manager, we were happy to see the manager and were told we would have to wait as he would only be down at 8:30am. At this point it was 8am and we were due to be picked up at 8:40am, whilst we explained this she said he would only be down at 8:30am, we waited around in the lobby to settle this issue with no sign of the manager up until our transfer arrived on time, so this has been left unresolved, if they were ours we would of paid. This is something which the hotel seriously needs to look into as you should not just be able to put drinks on other rooms with no proof at all, we are sure we will not be the only ones checking out this week to this shock as I am sure they have spread this across other rooms. An unfortunate end to a great holiday, despite this I haven’t let this effect what would have been my rating prior to this but thought this may warn others.More

Great find....

We have stayed here twice and have enjoyed it both times. Both the staff and other guests are very friendly and its feels safe. Food is really good and its worth booking your meal for both the pizza restaurant and Olives but book in advance as very popular. We upgraded this year to the James Bond apartments and we were really happy with the decor etc, last year we stayed in the standard rooms but this was well worth the upgrade we paid. Lots to do here and you have the choice of two beaches - the one to the left you can hire peddle boats with the slides on for 15 EUROS for an hour which is great as you can get to other beaches. You can also hire boats too for going off for a trip its great. The kids club at the hotel is amazing my son loved it both years we have been. Could do with more James Bond themed things as the hotel apartment blocks are all named after James Bond Characters. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. People have mention mosquitios but if you use the sprays etc you are ok, I have not been bitten either year I went. EnjoyMore

Great family holiday

I went with my 13 year old son.There was entertainment all day and night.we are both really fussy eaters but there was always something to eat. He loved the lunch by the pool.. Mini hotdogs and chips! It was a long transfer from the airport.. But looking at other hotels we stopped at ours was definitely the best. The rooms were a bit dated, but the rest of the hotel was modern. We booked the italian restaurant which was ok,but we thought the food was better in the every day restaurant. The a la carte looked lovely, friends said it was nice but unfortunately we left it too late to book.the allinclusive finished at 11, but the pyramid bar on the beach is great and kids can play crazy golf or go on mini go carts. People complain it's not a 4.5 star, u are in Greece not England . The holiday and food was great, I would recommend this to friends.wifi 30 euro a week, a must for a teenager!More

Donnajanesharp,

Family holiday

Enjoyed a lovely weeks holiday with my husband and 15 year old daughter . Wasn't overly keen on the food as very oily and bland . Desserts nice . Drinks awful IMO . The wine was like paint stripper . But lovely surroundings . Top adult pool is nice for a relaxing sunbath and swim without children running about . Bottom family pool great also for all . Plus the animation team are hard working and offering plenty to do . Snack bar was nice . Booked into Olives the second we got there to be told it was all booked up! Wasn't very happy about this . Face fit and all that I think . Beach to left and right all within 5 minutes walk . Parasols and beds have to be paid for obviously . Water was lovely . There are closer towns to the left and right all about €12 there and back . Kissioppi is a beautiful harbour at night with good shops, restaurants , we went a few times . Rooms clean . Restaurant was very busy with some families letting their kids run about which is a pain and ignorant impatient people pushing in or pushing past but that's not the fault of the hotel . I do think the areas of food was all set out weird . Be time you have queued for some food you have to move to another area to get another part of meal was cold be time you got back to your seat . Wasn't told ( had to find out myself ) where to get our free wine from - it isn't free we have paid for it! All inclusive . The staff are hard working and polite ( especially the young lad on the door at restaurant) some staff are a bit miserable . Everyone seems to big up the pyramid bar but although beautiful scenery I found it over rated €7/8 for a cocktail that's full of ice but nice for a quick drink and pics . There is another little bar to the left at the bigger beach that serves food and drink also . Take plenty of mosquito repellent I got eaten alive although they didn't touch hubby and daughter . It is a relaxing holiday though . More
