Blue Gardens Apartments
Ranked #2 of 25 Speciality Lodging in Roda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We stayed at Blue Gardens for two weeks with our children 11 and 6. After a difficult airport transfer (thanks for nothing, Cosmos) we received a fantastic welcome from Elena, Andreas and their daughter Marianthi, who helped our children settle in. We immediately felt relaxed and for the next two weeks our hosts, plus the two dads, were unfailingly polite, good humoured and helpful.
Our apartment was spacious with two balconies, the furthest from the pool. It was cleaned every day and had everything we needed. We hired the mosquito nets, but were still bitten - but then it's Greece in August so no real surprise there. The pool and bar area were also spotless, served great food and drinks all day and provided a safe and secure environment to potter around in for our youngest. The pool is great for children and adults - it could get a little raucous at times but there were also lengthy quiet periods and it was no problem getting sunbeds and umbrellas.
Elena and Andreas provided several themed evenings ie Greek night, quizzes, silly bingo and others. There was no pressure on anyone to take part but these evenings provided some of the happiest memories of our holidays - Rachel's 40th birthday night was unforgettable. Every night in the bar was made memorable by the great Kostas, who will serve till last person stands and is full of interesting information, from the local weather forecast to the potted history of Corfu.
Roda is a ten minute walk away down a narrow road without pavements - this is rural Corfu and if all the usual precautions are taken it shouldn't be a problem. The town itself is relatively small but with lots of restaurants and bars. We can honestly say we didn't have a bad meal, the particular favourite being Roda Park, which serves wonderful Greek food and is great value.
Roda beach is sandy and clean and the sea is warm, shallow and clear - again, perfect for our 6 year old.
So we would recommend Blue Gardens without reservation for young families like ourselves and thank all of the family for helping to give us our most relaxing holiday ever.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seem great and are all within 100 yards of the pool and bar.

Once again we have had a brilliant holiday in Corfu. Thanks to Andreas, Elena, Marianthi, Costas and the two dads. The food was brilliant and the rooms are very clean. We have been going to Blue Gardens for the last seven years and can't wait to go back next year for our Ruby wedding anniversary. We always have a great time and everyone makes our holiday superb every year. Counting down the days until we go back in 2014!

This was our 3rd year at Blue Gardens and it was "perfect"just like the two times before. The apartment was spotless the food was home cooked and delicious, Andreas Elena Marianthi and the two dads make you feel like one of the family from the minute you arrive. The pool though shallow in some areas is just brilliant to cool off in, and a friendly game of volleyball is a welcome change. The large mythos are wonderfully cold and refreshing especially with a club sandwich in the afternoon, though the husband would recommend the huge breakfast. The children are well catered for too. We are definitely planning to go again! Thank you all of you. Louise and boys

A thoroughly enjoyable 3-week holiday at Blue Gardens - it is highly suitable for families & couples alike.

Quiet rural location, very good food, spotless rooms & a genuinely warm welcome from a very caring and hard working family..........what more could you ask for!!

We will visit Blue Gardens again.

Room Tip: Studios facing pool are noisier as they are next to the pool - they have full sun in the afternoon...

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Blue Gardens and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and like 'one of the family'! Huge thanks to Elena, Andreas, Costas, Marianthi and of course the two dads for making this one of the best holiday's we've experienced. The food was wonderful, freshly prepared with vegetables and fruit from the garden and nothing was too much trouble. The one to one service was second to none - it's no wonder that guests return year after year and we are certainly planning to return again. Our apartment was spotless as were all the areas around the property and, although there wasn't air conditioning in our room, the fan kept us cool whilst we slept! Until next time..... Diane and Terry

Must I heartily thank Andreas, Elena, Costas and the fathers for such an enjoyable fortnight at Blue Gardens Apartments, Roda. From the first minute to the very last everyone was so helpful and made you feel part of the extended "Blue Gardens family". All the food which we had during our stay was excellent and prepared with care. It is no wonder that so many guests have made the decision to revisit on multiple occasions.

Our apartment was spotless as were all areas around the property and the whole family put in so much time and dedication to ensure that all guests felt equally cherished. My wife and I have travelled all over the world but can honestly say that the one to one approach offered is second to none and I will certainly be looking to join the group of guests who have visited more than once.

Andreas & Elena smoothed out a situation at the end of the holiday when the tour operator failed to turn up for our transfer to the airport and ensured that without delay a taxi was arranged and we were whisked to meet out departing flights, I'm sure without their intervention we would be surely still waiting at the roadside.....

Thanks again to all and for future guests try the "Huge Breakfast" which keeps you going for the whole day! I for one am already missing my chilled large Mythos at about 11:00 am Greek Time.

first of all thank you elena, Andreas, Costas the two dads and not forgetting Marianthi, for a wonderful welcome and for making our stay lovely. Just to repeat what others have expressed the whole property is absolutely spotless. The food is lovely with plenty of choice (Elena' curry is a must as also the sweet and sour) what is a nice touch is that the fruit and veg is picked r.fom their own garden. Elena will arrange any trip you wish to go on all you have to do is ask. The kids loved the volleyball and airbed races in the pool. They are also going to put in air conditioning although there are fans in bedrooms which would make it perfect. One little suggestion would be to have table tennis. Once again thank you for a fab time will hope to see you again one day. Paula Steve Kieran Sam Diane Tony Jack and Mia
