My Partner and I planned a last minute travel holiday to Corfu and stayed at Mathraki Studios. Hands down a credit to corfu!

When we started our holiday here in Corfu we hired a Car from the Airport which was a perfect 45 minute drive to the hotel full of amazing views that looked as if they are a painting. On arrival we were welcomed with very friendly staff and a beautiful outlook of the hotel. My partner and I were greeted by the Spiros and showed to our rooms. Due to Covid we were informed of all the safety measurements which were in place along side a signed form to allow the cleaner access ( if we wanted ) to our room.

The room which we had booked was beautiful. We had a sea view as promised even on the lower floor. The rooms had; cooker, large fridge, shower, balcony and two very comfy beds. While we were here at the hotel we was lucky enough to view one of the deluxe rooms on the top floor. I would recommend, if they are available, to take the opportunity and stay in one. Its our first time here in Corfu and we will be back next year to Mathraki Studios and also upgrading to the deluxe room!

Alongside this we both enjoyed spending our time at the Pool and Pool bar. The Pool is a perfect size for a swim but also to cool off when needed. The feel is amazing around the hotel, pool or pool bar with the hotel been adult only. From the pool bar we have enjoyed some of the nicest food we have had. Mostly the Curry night on a Sunday. We have seen so many good reviews about the “Sunday night Curry Night” and they do not disappoint. Hands down the best curry we have had.
We would also recommend the homemade chips from the Pool Bar, as recommended by the staff, which have been hand made on site from their home grown crop on mathraki island. Alex behind the bar pours a perfect pint and also makes some beautiful cocktails. Believe me they are good !

The Feel around the hotel is so nice! Its a very homely and family feel. No matter your concern big or small the staff are always so eager to help you. Little things matter a lot to us and they go the extra mile to make everything perfect for your holiday. Most of the other people staying have been coming here for years and we feel we have made friends here too which makes the experience even more perfect. The Location of the hotel makes everything come together with a five minute walk to the beach front with plenty bars and restaurants to choose. The beach is perfect for a walk, sunbathe or a swim.

Ive personally highly recommended the hotel to friends and family already! Its a real gem in the beautiful country. I can not wait to come back next year for more adventures and many more amazing memories.

Stayed here for 3 nights. We had a Deluxe Studio which was a very good size with a nice balcony and lovely views. The bedroom area of the Studio have been updated and had a excellent bed, nice TV and good air con. The kitchen area and bathroom need updating as look old and dated. Having said that all areas were very clean and tidy.

The pool and bar areas were very nice and the owner of the apartments who also worked the bar area was very helpful and nice to have a chat with. For the price we paid we would 100% stay here again.

Family run apartments with a pool and a bar that serves excellent food at reasonable prices. The cleaner works 6 days with Sundays off and keeps the rooms spotless. The breakfast menu is extensive, though the Mathraki (full English) is a must. Food is available until 3:00pm and then again from 7:00pm and is beautiful and the portions are very good. Sunday night is curry night and is very popular. Although we spend most of our holiday touring round the island there is everything you need at Mathraki and lots of people spend most of their time there and the fact that most people you speak to are returning guests speaks volumes about Mathraki.

Visited here with my husband. We were a little nervous about travelling due to COVID but we needn’t have worried, this place is spotless. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful holiday this is the place for you. The studios are large & well equipped, with a beautiful sea view. Food is lovely, the Sunday curry night is a must. Pool area is clean & so relaxing with plenty of Sun lounges. Lovely friendly staff. Short walk into the resort, there is a bit of a bank on the way back. Lovely sandy beach. The bars & restaurants are spotless & the food is amazing in all of them. We enjoyed it so much we’ve booked for next year which something we never do, can’t wait!

Beautiful studios, big room with a balcony that offers a nice sea view behind the olive trees. Really quiet place well situated (beach = 5 minutes walk).
The room is very clean, you get new towels very often.
The pool is great, the bar next to it offers cocktails and refreshing drinks.
The staff was really nice and welcoming.

We really enjoyed our stay in Arillas.

Just back from great holiday at Mathraki Studios.
Akis, Emmie, Spiros 1, Spiros 2, Dimitri & all the family & staff were so helpful & couldn't do enough for us.
The rooms & poolside areas were kept very clean as was the poolside bar.
Great food available all day long - couldn't fault it.
It was so good that we've already booked for 2024 !

absolutely great if your`e used to basic greek accomadation...Nick cooks really excellent bar food . ( The pork chops are to die for)..from the top floor studios you get a Fantastic view over the village and the island of Mathraki for which the apartments are named. It is only a short stroll to the beach and the Majority of tavernas and eateries are located on the beach front .Thyerev is some village noise at night but nothing to worry about . (n we actually thought our home was tooo quiet on our return. The supermarket across the road is well stocked and EVERY PERSON in the village welcomes you . deffo going again in june..This resort is more suited to older couples as there is not a great deal for children except the beautiful shallow sandy beach.No Music is heard on the beach so it makes for a relaxing and peaceful break from the " Real World " 11 out of 10 for apartments and resort combined ...Bob and Sue Graham apartment 14

My partner and I have just returned from another wonderful 2 weeks at the Mathraki Studios, this is our 5th year on holiday and I just cannot imagine going anywhere else it is just the most amazingly laid back and relaxed place to be. We know the family very well after having visited for so often now and you could not wish to meet a lovelier group of people. Nicoletta (or Momma as she is affectionately known amongst the regular guests!) is beautiful, she always has a smile and nothing is too much trouble for her. Akis and Spiros run the poolside bar and restaurant in the daytime, they do an awesome job always with a smile, sadly Nikos wasn't there this year but hopefully will be back next year, and Emmie is amazing in the kitchen too. Alex of an evening is fantastic, a real gentleman who is genuinely happy to serve all the guests with their choice of drink, a real sound chap!
Unfortunately I do have to take issue with a previous review from GuyD of Enfield. He refers to a 'rabble mostly in their mid 50's' who 'pretended they were on a drunken 18-30 trip'. Well, I was amongst that 'rabble' so please allow me to set the record straight. My partner and I have been to the Mathraki for several years now as have a lot of our friends who are regular guests. Every year we pay a visit to the chapel on the cliffs overlooking the bay, we call it our 'pilgrimage', we each have a moment of quiet contemplation there where we remember loved ones we have sadly lost. We then celebrate their lives and raise a glass to their memories on the way back from there, as we have done on several occasions now. This is always good natured and we have drinks and sometimes an impromptu singalong, always good fun, even the locals join in with us! We are not a drunken wannabe 18-30 rabble; I myself am a fully qualified accounting technician, my partner is a SENTA with the local educational authority, we also have a retired police officer, several qualified civil engineers, a lecturer, social worker and education professionals. Hardly a bunch of chavvy Kavos-bound party goers I'm sure you'll agree!
What Mr GuyD somewhat conveniently fails to mention, is that his wife or partner, whichever the case may be, would sit at the bar every single night and loudly and drunkenly announce to anyone within earshot, 'Can you guess what Guy does?!' Suffice to say that after several nights of this it became very boring and monotonous, I don't think anybody gave a monkey's toss quite honestly and to this day I don't think any of the guests staying there ended up finding out what his occupation was. Oh dear, how sad, never mind.
To get back to the Mathraki Studios, if you are looking for a laid back, chilled out place to relax in the sun with a cold drink and an informal vibe in beautiful surroundings you will not get better than here, simple as. Jane and I have booked up for next year as have all of our friends, it is just perfect here. Bob and Tracey have been here for 10 years in succession, I believe it's about the same for Ian and Karen, Joan and Dave are 4 years as, I believe are Paul and Ann and I understand it's about 3 years for Jimmy and Yvonne. All wonderful people who we look forward to sharing a beer and a laugh with along with Nikos, Alex, Akis, Emmie, Spiros and of course Momma! Here's to lots more amazing times in beautiful Arillas at the wonderful Mathraki Studios!

Great location.Brill staff.Pool just right size.Local area and ammenities great.NO ATM IN ARILLAS ANYMORE.Money can be changed in local travel shops.Great credit to Nick and his family in looking after us all.Nothing too great for them to provide.Portofino for evening meals was good.Others around,but down to individual choice.Great sunsets from Portofino though.Great breakfasts,as much as you can eat at Marina by the beach.Portofino is roughly 40-50 euros for 4 eating.Marina is roughly 18 euros for 4 eating breakfast.Sun loungers and umbrella for two is 7.5 euros for whole day.You can eat at the hotel,roughly 33 euros for 4,also as good a quality as downtown.Give Nick some advanced warning and he can provide whatever meal you may want,within reason.20 EUROS to extend your room on day of departure.Children are not able to stay anymore as apparently Thomsons are wary of children climbing the balcony rails and falling.I can only say that they should look at their hotels in Majorca,which I as an adult had concerns with,yet there were loads of children.Thomsons would do well to think again on this issue,as this is a perfect quiet family hotel.They would be shooting themselves in the foot,in my opinion.My 4 year old grandaughter had all us kids,40-65 in the pool fighting with water pistols and lilos etc and having the greatest second childhoods of our lives.A great hol,my first self catering and a thoroughly good experience.So Thomson,think again on your child policy,as this is what made our holiday and everyone elses a great one.Playing with a child,as children ourselves and breaking down the barriers between guests. As already stated,I can relate to other Thomson hotels with balconies a lot more dangerous.I consider the ones at Mathraki to be more than fit for purpose.There are only 16 apartments,so everyone is thrown together and the enjoyment is there to be had.Towels changed every other day.Sheets weekly.After you use your loo roll,you have to buy your own.Beds and pillows are very comfy.Air conditioning is 5 euros per night.Buy a mossie plug in repellant ,6 euros,as mosquitoes are slightly more apparent this year.Your kitchen is very well equipped and you have a fridge.Cleanliness might be less than expected in some areas,but does not fall far behind some 5 star all inclusives I have stayed in.Please take this with a pinch of salt and I am sure that you will enjoy your stay.I hope that I have given as true an experience as I could and that someone out there benefits from it. Bruce.
