“A lovely relaxing holiday”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We have just returned from Stars and we had a wonderful time. Kostas was always helpful and had a very dry wit, get him on the karaoke! The rooms were basic but very spacious and cleaned to a high standard every day (bar Sunday). The pool was small but cleaner than many hotels we've stayed in. The food cooked by Milla was wonderful and I would definitely recommend staying in a few nights to taste her cooking. We were extremely lucky as we made some good friends on this holiday, a lot of guests are repeat guests so Stars must be doing something right. The holiday was lovely and relaxing and we are hoping to return next year. Thank you Kostas, you and your family work very hard maintaining the property and keeping us all entertained.

My partner & I booked our holiday to Star Studios (Stars) a month before going. We flew from Birmingham July 2nd staying for 1 week.

It was our first holiday together, and most definitely one to remember! We are aged 27 & 25, and we had decided that Stars seemed the best value online for a week away.

On arrival, we met part owner Mila, who greeted us with open arms and showed us to our room immediately. After dropping off our bags, we made our way to the bar for a late night drink. This is where we met the other owner Costas, who made us feel instantly welcome at the bar.

Now I have read mixed reviews of Costas, and let me guarantee you that he is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. He is hard working, polite, incredibly funny and he puts his heart and soul into the service he provides. I have to mention that his phrases will stay with you forever "Some Tourists" & "Quaaaaality"! Seriously, he engulfs the audience with his evenings of entertainment each night of the week, leaving you with smiles ear to ear.

Now the accommodation is basic, as one expects from a 2* self catering holiday. However the rooms/balcony's are very spacious and incredibly clean (we found that the cleaner was very friendly, didn't disturb you and worked everyday except Sunday).

The kitchen lacked cooking equipment, but seriously why would one need that extra spatula with such a high quality restaurant on your doorstep. We ventured into St.George on 3 evenings of our 7 day trip. We dined at 2 of the nicest looking sea-front restaurants, with neither comparing in the slightest to the on-site Stars!!

This is no exaggeration, Mila slaves away in the kitchen from dusk 'til dawn & the quality of the food is evident by the number of covers present each breakfast, lunch & dinner. She specialises in Greek dishes, yet also succeeds in English and all other cuisines. I personally became addicted to their Spaghetti Bolognese! Furthermore, the food and drinks are brilliant value compared to every other place we went.

The pool is delightful, 0.9m in the shallow & 2.6m in the deep yet a gradual sloping to ease you in. The sun loungers and surrounding areas are lovely & peaceful at night and day, with the whole grounds being constantly cleaned & maintained.

All in all, the location of Stars is brilliant. Realistically it is a 3 minute stroll to the first local shop with all your needs. 5 minutes further you will be in St.George and a further 3 minutes are the best sandy beaches in the whole of Corfu.

As mentioned we are aged 25 & 27. We made friends with other guests aged 20-75 at the hotel. It really is for everybody, the place has a wonderful family vibe and atmosphere all day & night. We felt at home on day 1 of our holiday and recommend it to everybody.

Thanks to Costas & Mila, quality hosts of a quality holiday!!

Steven & Nicola - July 2nd-9th 2012.

My wife and I spent two highly enjoyable weeks at star studios in sept last year, (sorry it has taken so long Costas).

Accomodation was better than typical Greek self catering, it was cleaned regularly and nothing was falling to pieces
.
The pool was not Olympic size by any stretch of the imagination but well maintained and very clean
.
Location is a little way from beaches at least a ten minute walk but if you are on holidays who cares, having said that if you make the effort the beaches are uncrowded and clean, i'm not personally a lover of them but enjoyed a couple of days on the beach
.
Food seems to be a bone of contention on these reviews and so i will add my two penny worth, whilst we were at stars we ate out on two occasions, one breakfast by the beach and one evening with fellow travellers at the griil just up the road both of which were very nice,the rest of the holiday we ate in the restaurant area of Stars, the food was of excellent quality as you would expect Milla is after all an award winning chef, the variety was good and i never left the table feeling hungry, the prices charged in the restaurant are by and large the same as local eateries in and around the strip area, the only difference is the quality of product used by Costas and Milla you will notice that their food is delivered normally on a daily basis or home grown, so if you ask Costas where the best place to eat is he will give the most honest answer he can, Stars ! Having said this i never saw him treat a customer at the studios any differently wether they ate out or not, please though if you stay even just for a week try Milla's cooking a couple of times, you won't regret it.

Service is a tricky one to evaluate depending on what you expect to get on a cheap holiday (i got a fantastic deal !) Costas and Milla are fantastic hosts, they try their utmost to keep everybody as happy as humanly possible, things do go wrong and did a couple of times while we were there, Costas and Milla sorted them out as quickly and efficiently as possible. they consider they are there to help and advise as best they can, they will help if you burn in the sun ,change money if you need it, more than this they consider everyone that walks through their doors is a friend and treat them as such, they work very hard every day but never seem to flag and always have a wave and a hello for all.
As an example of their attitude towards their "friends" my wife and i decided to walk to the local bakery for a sweet treat (fatties us....lol ) before we got 2minutes up the road Costas father had picked us up took us for a quick fire tour around the island, beautiful views we would have missed otherwise took us to the bakery and delivered us back, we thank him it was very much appreciated.

Overall a nice quiet holiday with people who care about their customers, we will be back hopefully this year but for now thank you once again, Costas, Milla and family !.

I travelled to corfu alone earlier this year, a little wary as a woman alone. No need, star studios is not a 5 star hotel, what it is is a star find! a little gem! The food is superb home cooked, the hospitality is 5star, and everywhere is absolutely spotlessly clean. A short stroll into town if you can tear yourself away for a little shopping,or to the lovely beach. This is a family run business, and is greece at its best. wholeheartedy recommended.

Room Tip: all the rooms are well situated, just close enough to pool and bar, away from the road, quiet and sa...

just returned from a typical 2 week holiday in st georges south,in self catering,the good point this time was that if you wanted the on site restaurant it was there 30 second walk,the food was so good we did not bother going anywhere else,kosta x milla,went out of there way to make our stay most enjoyable,they were on hand 24 hrs a day for our whole 2 weeks,this is the treatment you would expect for a holiday of twice the price,so for us stars is highly recommended.

Room Tip: we were on the 1st floor all had balconies,if it got to hot you could sit by your door looking north...

Hi, stayed at Stars in August and just booked to go back next year - as have other couples we met while there. It is a really relaxed, chiled out place. Kostas is a lovely man and DOES NOTmind if you eat elsewhere (as our friends we met did). I think people who read the very rare bad reviews here need to bear in mind that as we all know, some of our English 'sorts' let us down and give us all a bad name. Not one person when we were there had any problem whatsoever (there were all sorts - but all decent people). No one had problems with rooms not being cleaned, or the toilet bins - in fact we had our room very well cleaned and beds changed as specified. Kostas, Mila and family deserve respect and if people want to behave like bums then they will get the same attitiude back!! They work very hard and were very friendly and hospitable. We are well travelled and this is the first time we are going back to the same place, can't wait.
