Barbati is a dream if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and totally chilled out holiday. Nothing to do but sunbathe, eat and drink. We loved it and look forward to a return trip - especially to La Riviera apartments. We were in a fantastic location with great sea views and only a 2 min walk to the beach. The apartment was super clean, well serviced with friendly and helpful staff. Angelik, the manager was particularly helpful over accommodating us due to our late departure. Definitely recommend it. The small street bar (7 Sins) is a good place for an aperitif or post dinner drinks. Music is very cool and it's smallness is part of its charm. Best restaurant for us was The Dionysus. Food was good and the super-charged and charismatic Katarina along with the owner made us very welcome. We are in our 60s and met a lovely young couple in their 20s who also seemed to enjoy the place. All in all a winner!

Stayed here last week in a three bed villa. Yes been a wheelchair user it was a bit awkward but we adapted as we went along. We enjoyed every minute of it. Would maybe have a villa nearer the bottom but apart from the hill it was perfect.

Room tip: If you have mobility problems have a villa near the bottom near pool bar.

Stayed here as my friend had recommended and we were not disappointed. The location could not be more convenient – minutes to the beach. We booked a 2 bed apartment – so had plenty of room with a very good bathroom. We also had a washing machine and dishwasher plus full sized oven if you want to self cater. I’d booked through a price comparison site and had not realised that I’d booked a private apartment so had a bit of a delay getting the key as it was not available at the office. I like to have a reception to go to if there are any problems and so we did not have that but luckily had no issues. Despite not booking through the main office the lady in there was extremely helpful and booked us a return taxi to the airport. I would not hesitate to return but would not book a private apartment again.

We stayed in a split level maisonette at La Riviera and had a very enjoyable holiday. Whilst the accommodation is not 'luxourious', it catered for all our needs. It was fully equipped with a washing machine, oven, DVD player, television and had plenty of storage space as well. Clean towels and bed linen provided every couple of days.
Lovely sea view from our balcony. Reception staff extremely helpful and friendly.
There were numerous steps to get up to our maisonette which we expected. We hired a car from the local Barbati car rental company situated on the main road - excellent service and value. A few good local restaurants especially Dionysos.
Wifi was slow but it did work !! The swimming pool, and its surrounding area, requires refurbishing and tidying with newer furniture.
All in all we were really satisfied with the accommodation and had a very good holiday.

We booked a 1 bedroom maisonette with private pool, in hindsight we probably should have booked the 2 bedroom version. But once we had sorted out the sleeping area for the kids it began to feel better.
Wardrobe space was ok but not enough hangers. Could have used more drawers too.
The 2 ladies on reception were friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable on the surrounding areas.
We had a lovely sea view from the first floor balcony. We noticed that the outside area of our maisonette was a bit small when compared to the 1 bed maisonettes on either side of ours - but we still had a lovely time. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything you would need. Neat little table and chairs on the patio too for al-fresco dining.
Decent sized communal pool which overlooked the pebble beach - was lovely being able to be able to swap between the pool/sea throughout the day. Lifeguard on duty all day. We noticed that there seemed to be a few people who weren't staying in La Riviera apartments would use the sun beds around the pool area, some days this meant you would struggle to get a lounger around the pool which was a little frustrating. Loungers on the beach cost 7 euros (2 loungers & an umbrella) so you can see why some might want to nab a free lounger by the pool.
We ate lunch at Nautilus most days and had a couple of evening meals there too. The food was really good quality and cooked beautifully-we found it better than some of the local restaurants. The cost of everything in Barbati was slightly high, sometimes we felt like we were being taken advantage of. We hired a car to visit a few other places and enjoy a change of scenery and we were pleased we did. Aqualand was a hit with us - 92 euros for a family of 4. The hire car was organised via reception and that cost 140 euros for 3 days. We also hired a boat for a day 120 euros (this included the fuel) from Spiros boat hire - was really good fun. We had lunch at Agnis - it was lovely, fresh food with a sea view and great service. Our absolutely favourite evening meal out was at Glyfa Taverna - amazing food and the best service we had whilst in Corfu. They also provide a boat taxi service - really good experience.
We ate out at a few restaurants in Barbati - prices ranged from 70-120 euros for starters/mains and drinks for a family of 4.
