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.

Joke if you think this is a 4 star
Several of the previous reviews are accurate food is 4 out of 10, staff are surly and find it hard to smile and the hotel seems hell bent on squeezing every penny they can out of the punter even charging 3 euros for a hours internet not good enough this is year 2016! Mozzies are a real problem so please be prepared, you will need to be covered in repellant. Watch out also for the salad food that is left out for 3 hrs plus without cooling they place things like mussels in the salad and I'm sure that's where I got my dodgy stomach from. The drinks are poor, we spent most of our time in the lovely pyramid bar down the road through the metal gates (to keep the punters in !) turn right at the sign to exclusive not inclusive. In summary the hotel reminded me of 3 star hotels I went to in the 1980s I recommend paying Â£400 extra and go to a smaller proper 4 star hotel that gives good service to the customer.More
Me and my partner stayed at this lovely hotel from 9th to 16th of September and if you're after a totally relaxing, non adventurous holiday, I can wholeheartedly recommend this place. I would however note that both my partner and I are in our mid-late 20's, and apart from a handful of other guests, we were the youngest there by a considerable distance! I'd hazard a guess and say 60ish was the average age. The hotel itself is a large complex with around 20ish blocks of rooms, all named after James Bond hero's or villain's, we were in 'M' and lucky enough to have a refurbished room. They aren't all refurbished in that block however, after having a sneaky nosy through the door as the maid was resetting the room next door for the next guests, it was somewhat outdated. The maid service was great, the room and bathroom was always left very clean after their visit. Although I was woken up at 7am on the morning of departure by a maid coming into our room! The food was more than acceptable. Breakfast was very good, with continental style toast, preserves, yoghurt and granola daily. Hot croissants and danishes too. There was a mixture of cereals, eggs (fried, scrambled, egg white omelette and regular omlette) bacon (usually a little soggy and always smoked), small Frankfurter style sausages and grilled tomatoes every day. Lunch and dinner was served with a large variety of breads and cold cut hams, salad (although this didn't always look very appealing, slightly browned carrot and lettuce) cheese (cheddar and feta were the only two options), fresh watermelon chunks were available every day. There was a pasta bar at dinner with usually a tomato/marinara style sauce and spaghetti, and the main buffet stand having offerings like chips, chicken thighs, meatballs and fish cooked in a sauce and lots of roasted vegetables, usually cooked in a tomato style sauce but not always. The kids buffet was usually things like chicken nuggets, fish fingers and chips. There was always variation from day to day, lunch to dinner, but if you're a particularly picky eater, it might get repetitive. I would have liked to see more chicken breasts. All the meat on offer was either on the bone or turkey, which tasted somewhat reconstructed. The dessert bar was good, 4-5 different flavour ice creams, although they all mostly tasted like tuttifruitty! There was usually jelly, creme caramel, cream and sponge cake and petit fours style puddings, like mini chocolate tortes. All in all very enjoyable. The pool areas were very well maintained. The relax pool where we spent the majority of our time was lovely and quiet, no children or music were permitted and the whole area felt very serene, pool closest to reception. There were plenty of sun beds available whatever time you ventured down. Possibly due to our visit being out of school holidays. The snack bar at the bottom pool also served lunch if you didn't fancy walking up the hill! We didn't visit Olive's restaurant but the pizza bar (you need to book at reception, but all but the wine is included on all inclusive) was very good. The drinks were quite good with the house wine becoming more palatable with a dash of the lemonade also on offer. There is no cider at all on offer on all inclusive, however ciders such as kopperberg were available for purchase. The cocktails on offer were very tasty. Very basic in their construction but tasty none the less. There was usually a 'cocktail of the day' on offer at â¬3 each. The frozen lemon daiquiri was very good. The location of the hotel was the one draw back for me. It's located at the very top of the island, so far removed from civilization you're almost forced to go on excursions to see something different! There is a shuttle bus that runs at regular intervals from reception for â¬5 each way. The pyramid bar at the bottom is okay, drinks are reasonable, the atmosphere definitely more suited to our age group. There is also mini golf and Ho karting available for children. We didn't spend much time watching the evenings entertainers, not really our thing to be honest, but the bits we did see, the staff were constantly on it! They were great, full of energy! I would recommend eating dinner early if you'd like to get a seat for the entertainment. We usually ate around 8:45pm and by the time we'd finished and walked to the bottom, there were no free tables or chairs anywhere! All in all, I probably wouldn't return here, just because it's too far removed for us, but this is just down to our preferences. Put the hotel in the middle of corfu town and we'd be back every year! We did, however, very much enjoy our stay here at Mareblue Beach and would recommend it to anyone looking for a totally relaxed, 'I want to spend all week by the pool' kind of holiday. More
Shame about the young children
Thought going in mid September would avoid young children. How wrong could you be. Children running about the dining area throwing food on floor and generally getting in the way during entertainment in the evening. Otherwise a nice hotel although too large for me. Beds very comfortable, very clean and nice staff.More
In general good place to stay
I'd start my opinion about the nice things - I kindly ask for help in changing room (not in the rude way like some other tourists do), and the next day I was very happy to have a perfect view and rooms with a junior suite place. It was really good change because I was travelling with two small kids and my imagination about family room I've booked, was not so clear and precise when I saw it. Thank you guys! Hotel is abslolutely beautiful placed, close to two harbours, close to the sandy beach (turn left when going out from hotel - sea direction). Pool has a kids part and the normal size place to swim. Animations - really nice stuff, with a vacations sense of humour, trying to make you feel happy. Front desk - the only thing I'd ask is more person during the check in & check out. It takes a lot time to do it. I'd say during the day you need to wait for couple of minutes staying in a queue. Restaurant Olives - charmly placed, heard that food is very good. We dind't go because with a 2 small kids we did not want to make a mess :-) - book in advance! Even the first / second day after arrival, same with italian restaurant clise to the pool. Food - in general is ok, after a week I felt like every food is spiced in the same way. But it is acceptable. One thing - pasta - definately all the time overcooked! Evening shows - fireman, dancers etc - very good both for kids and parents. And what our kids love best - minidisco! One more note - you should pay more attention to the cleanliness in the house where kids play.... Summing up - very good stay. If weather was better than it could be perfect.More
Lovely hotel with available sunbeds most of day
From previous reviews it seems that hotel in school holidays is completely different to hotel when kids are back in school. We stayed from 5th September and found it to be a lovely relaxing hotel very close to 2 beaches (5 min walk).There is a small infinity pool with jacuzzi for adults only and free of charge sunbeds were available most of day.This pool was near block Q.There is a larger pool close to beach that has pool bar and water polo and water aerobics take place here.This is close to block James Bond.Room blocks are named after James Bond characters .We stayed in M and our room was very pleasant with air conditioning and balcony with sea view.Bathroom was modern with a fabulous shower.Maid came every day except Sunday to change towels and make beds. Food in dining room was excellent and staff very friendly. Negative points : All inclusive drinks only until 11pm then pay 2 euros.No dryer(maiden) on balcony.Thunderstorms for 2 days (Unexpected bad weather in early September) Positive points :Sunbeds available without having to fight over them.Excellent food.Lovely location .No mosquitos .Everything nearMore
