Myself and a friend stayed at Mareblue for 10 nights from 09/06/13-19/06/13. This was my second time at this resort, and this holiday was even better then the first time I visited. The management has changed, the managers are frequently seen walking around the hotel and dining room, and are very welcoming. All of the waiting and bar staff are polite and very efficient. They all work so hard and always greet you with a smile on their faces. Around the pool, maintenance staff and pool staff are continuously seen wandering around making sure the everything is clean and well maintained.
The rooms are cleaned daily (excluding sundays) and perfect for what you use them for. Decent space with plenty of storage, and a good size bathroom. There is a tv in the room, which we never used, air con, a hair dryer and a safe (extra charge). It's not 5* luxury but thats not what we paid for!
The food is brilliant. All fresh and well cooked, as long as you didn't try everything available to you every night, there is plenty of variety! Best food I've had at an all inclusive by far. Snacks are available at the pool bar early afternoon along with ice cream, so no need to leave the comfort of the sunbed!
One of the big highlights of the holiday is the brilliant work by the entertainment team, especially from Rico and Gill. They work so hard all day to keep guests occupied, frequently encouraging guests to partake in a range of sports. In the early evening, they all take part in the mini disco for the kids, which they all seem to enjoy very much. At 10, the evening entertainment starts, which is sometimes cheesy but we always had a great time, and the team encouraged everyone to get involved. We particularly enjoyed the Greek night and the quiz (which we won woooop!). These guys really made our holiday, lovely people, an asset to the holiday. The new additions to entertainment team arrived days before we left, but they all seemed extremely enthusiastic and hopefully will live up to the high standards Sam, Rico and Gill have already set.
This is a quite part of Corfu, and although we are aged 24 and 26, this was perfect for us! There is a bar 2 minutes away from the hotel called Ammus which we went to every evening after the entertainment finished. Drinks are very reasonably priced and music is good. This is run by Menelaaus and Paola, both lovely and very welcoming people, strongly recommended! Plus, free wifi, so we went for a coffee in the afternoons and to catch up with the rest of the world.
We strongly recommend a trip to kassiopi, a beautiful fishing village, just stunning. But then again, the views of Albania from the hotel took our breath away every night. We couldn't get bored of that view. We strongly advise decent mosquito repellent, they appear around 7:30-9.30 in the evenings, but they are EVERWHERE!
In summery, a perfect holiday, best one we have had. Leaving was tough, couldn't recommend it enough! Definitely will be going back in the near future. Thank you to all of the staff.
