“Quiet break”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Apartments very clean, swimming pool excellent, views terrific, close to facilities but far enough away to be quiet. Bus services very good just outside. Harbour within 2 minute walk. Plenty of small shingle beaches within walking distance. Air conditioning was a godsend and free! Cleaner was very friendly and Scottish and came in every day except Sunday to change towels/sheets etc.
Free wi-fi available.
On the down side the bathroom was a little small and there was no shower curtain (a Greek thing) this meant that every time you showered the bathroom and toilet etc flooded signs of which we're showing on the woodwork. A larger person would probably not manage this but we found it adequate to hold the shower for use. There is no kettle(well not one we would have used due to its smell) only a coffee maker which gave us hot (not boiling) water, and there was no toaster. Forget the TV as it is not tuned in and in such a ridiculous position as to be unusable anyway - take your mobile device and use filmon on the free wi-fi is my advice.

Upon arrival around midnight there was no one here to greet us even though I had emailed twice to say of our late arrival. Make sure you have a mobile with you to call the number on information hut and make sure you know the country code is 0030 as it is not listed - a recommendation we will make personally.

Recommendation to the owners - buy a kettle and toaster as these are basic essentials in self catering apartments. Fitting a shower curtain woul save a lot of mess and redecoration cost at the end of the day.

Apart from the gripes a thoroughly enjoyable stay which could with little cost have been an excellent rating.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view they are the best

Exactly as described, had a lovely holiday here. The studios are situated 5 minutes away from the main square in Benitses where there are plenty of restaurants and cafe bars, there are also are two small supermarkets and two bakeries in the village. The apartment was basic but had everything required, kitchen facilities were adequate, the bathroom was also basic and floor needed mopping after showering so would benefit from an upgrade. The views from the balcony were beautiful and we nearly always had the pool to ourselves which is unheard of at the beginning of August. Would stay here again.

Stayed 7 days in August and loved being close to the busy life in Benitses but in a really quiet location which Dimitra is.

Stayed in apartment no 2 which had a good size balcony with a beautiful view across the sea to Greece. Mornings were beautiful with the sunrise. Unfortunately too many bugs at night to sit out! Downside is a parking lot in front of balcony but found out it was very little used because there's another parking lot on the other side which is right buy the entrance to the apartments.

Cleaning lady was British and did an excellent job leaving the apartment spotless.
Beds were twin beds and hard as stone.
Small kitchenette with basic tools but most important a fridge with a freezer.
Bathroom window broken and did not open. Shower head so full of chalk that water came out in all directions.
As most toilets in Greece no paper in the toilet but in bucket next to.

Benitses area was extremely busy in August. We rented a car from the local tourist information and drove to another beach each day as the beach in Benitses was very disappointing.
Dimitris was ideal to us because of easy bus service from and to airport and because of many different restaurants and take away's when returning to Benitses from our trips around the island.

Very basic room, with old furniture and bed sheets, the kitchen is very small. Our room was very hot, no way to survive without AC. So it was not a comfortable place to hide away from hot sun in the afternoon. The bed mattress is hard like a stone.

The Benitses (7 minutes walk from Dimitra) beach is narrow, crowded and not really clean. We went to Mesongi beach instead, which is a couple of km towards south.

On the positive side, the view from the balcony is beautiful. Should it not be the AC running continuously, the studios are quite as well.

Room Tip: Avoid room #1, it is the hottest one, we did not switch off the AC one single minute during the nigh...

Dear 80Traveler,

Thank you for choosing Dimitra Studios for your holidays in Corfu. It is a pleasure to welcome guests from all over the world, providing them with cozy and friendly accommodation in one of the most privileged locations on the island.

Special thanks about your comments regarding the stunning view from the balcony. Indeed, our studios boast an idyllic view to the Ionian Sea. Sunset is purely magical from our property, leaving our guests in awe of Nature’s masterpieces! Furthermore, we would like to thank you about your comments on the serene location. Dimitra Studios combine smooth accessibility and proximity to Corfu Town and many of the island’s refined beaches (like Mesonghi beach that you have selected to visit throughout your stay with us or the picturesque Benitses that is just a breath from our studios), along with tranquility and a sense of seclusion that is treasured by our guests.

On the other hand, we are sad to see that you have not enjoyed your stay in our premises as much as we would have expected you to. You will be thrilled to read that we have been undergoing renovations within our property to best serve the needs of our valued guests. All linen has been changed and the same goes for shower curtains. Bath amenities have been added, while at the same time bath improvements have been completed. All these renovations have been made with the best interest of our guests at heart and more improvements are on the way.

Moreover, as far as the heat is concerned, it depends on the exact season and weather conditions throughout the year. To deal with excess heat, we have placed A/C which can operate as per the desire of our guests and offer the perfect temperature always.

We will be looking forward to welcoming you again to Dimitra Studios soon, for changing your experience around and offering you a secluded retreat with modern facilities, amenities, friendly hospitality and spectacular views to the Ionian Sea. To that end, in case you are considering visiting our hotel again, you are kindly advised to contact directly the reservations department and receive a special “Loyalty Rates” code that we share with our repeated guests, in order to benefit from additional discounts.

Best regards,

Cheap: very

Staff: very friendly and helpful -->serviceminded! They will help you emediately if you call or email them! Good to know
since there is no reception

rooms: good size, balcony with beautiful view, small kitchen with basic tools. On the down side the beds are twin beds, not
double beds and they are a bit hard in our opionion. I also miss a sharp kitchenknife and a showercurtain. Room nr
9 is the onlyone without a balcony with view. The studios are a bit old, but everything is working perfectly so it
doesent matter.

wifi: strong connection everywhere in the property, even by the pool. Working just fine!

Pool: Nice and clean, appr. 12m x 6m, depth 1m40cm - small poolside area with several sunbeds. Quiet, since most
guests dont use the pool that much. On the down side there are wasps using the pools drainsystem for some
reason, flying back and forth - they are not aggressive though! But I think they should be removed...

Location: excellent! 2 min walk from "the strip" of Benitses with all its restaurants, shops and supermarkeds (You really have
to try paxinos restaurant btw, where the locals dine). Benitses is a quiet nice little village located in the middle of
the island, close to everything. We recommend to rent a car or a scooter/ATV for easy transportation. Benitses
have a couple of small rocky beaches, and the water here is much warmer than up north or on the westcoast!

We highly recommend Dimitra studios!! The dice lands on 5, and the only reasons for it not landing on 6 is the twin(somewhat hard) beds and wasps by the pool. The studios should be a 3 star accomodation based on the service and view/location alone!

We live here for 10 days in October with little baby. Very good location, friendly personal. Little minus: not very easy to find:) There are many restaurants and shops near Studios and a very interseting shell museum. Five minutes from the beach.

Had a lovely 3 night stay here in September. Yes, it’s a little tricky to find! If you get the bus to Benitses, get off at the first stop in the town (beside the marina) and then walk back towards the shell museum. Take the road immediately after the shell museum, you pass a house, and then the apartments are next (on the bend). They are not always staffed - we phoned the owner and he was there in 5minutes to let us in. The rooms are basic (typically Greek), but spacious and clean. Small kitchen, which was great for cooking up breakfasts and lunches. We'd arrived in the dark, so it was lovely to wake the next morning to a beautiful view over the sea. Every apartment had a sea view.

Apartments were nice and quiet whilst we were there - no rowdy neighbours! We were quite late in the season but the apartments appeared still to be busy - though as there are not many rooms, it meant the facilities were not stretched and we found we had the pool to ourselves when we used it. View from the pool is stunning too.

Benitses was perfect for us - pretty quiet, not too affected by tourism (i.e. no signs for 'English breakfast', however you do still get chips with your moussaka!!) Benitses is really close to the apartments - just a 5min walk and you have restuarants, tourist info, tour bookings, nice beach, a bakery, supermarket etc etc.

We used the bus to get in from Corfu Town and then the bus again back to the airport (pretty much drops you at the end of the runway!), so was really good value compared with taxi prices. You can get tickets for the bus in Benitses from the machine or the supermarket sells them too (same price).

Thanks for a nice relaxing stay!
