Ionian Eye Studios
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Messonghi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 July 2014

If you're looking for a great place to stay in Messonghi then look no further than the Ionian Eye.

I was advised about this hotel by Leigh, the manager, after a previous booking for myself and 3 friends (albeit with an alternative hotel) fell through and what a great recommendation it was.

Leigh was/is absolutely fantastic and handled my booking with great speed and professionalism including arranging taxis to pick us up and take us back to the airport.

The staff here are fantastic and will always greet you with a warm smile and a friendly "hello"

The hotel itself is large, spacious and kept very clean. Whilst the rooms my appear to be slightly small they are finished to a very high quality. Aircon is included and is quiet and unobtrusive.

The rooms were cleaned daily with fresh, quality towels being supplied every day.

The views are absolutely amazing and I recommend booking rooms with a sea view. You won't be disappointed with the view.

The pool area is a great place to relax with plenty of room and a large number of chairs, tables, umbrella's and sunbeds .

The location is great, just a few minutes walk to centre of Messonghi.

One of the highlights of our holiday was when I asked Leigh if some other friends on the same trip could use the pool area providing we obviously respected the wishes of other guests. Leigh allowed this and what was meant to be a 1-2 hour "dip in the pool" ended up with us staying nearly 4 hours. There were 16 of us in total and everyone commented on the quality of the Ionian Eye and the friendly atmosphere.

Many of my group visit Messonghi every couple of years and the "Eye" as we have affectionately called it is pretty much at the top of everyone's list for accommodation now.

Room Tip: The best rooms are on the top floor facing the sea.

We are just leaving Corfu after 2 weeks staying in an apartment in the Ionian Eye, it was a super stay. Our apartment was clean and spacious. We had a bedroom and sitting room with a gold away bed. Ideal if you have children. The pool and surrounding area was clean and uncluttered the water always felt fresh.
A very short walk 5 mins on the flat took us in to Mesonghi where there are shops and restrauants. The beach was very nice and the sea perfect for all especially very young kids, very safe. To Meraki is one of the best places we have ever eaten. It's on the beach and looks basis but the prawns, fish and salads are great.
If you want peace and quiet or a late drink you can find it here.

Stayed in June 14 for our honeymoon. Rooms have recently been refurbished and a lot of effort has clearly gone in. I am 6ft3 and my wife (at the time) was 6 months pregnant), so we were so, so happy to find a 5ft bed too! Very comfortable! Location is great, just a couple of minutes walk along the road to the centre of the village, where you will find loads of tavernas, bars and shops. Messonghi is/was new to us and we had a fab time! Lovely part of the island, just what you want in a resort. Didn't need a car either, as everything that you need is in the village. Ionian Eye I would 100% recommend, the place is fab and the rooms very well priced for what you get. The owner is hands-on and makes sure we are well-looked after. Hope to return next year with the family. Thanks Kostas & Leigh for everything!!

Room Tip: Request sea-view. top floor :-)

We have just returned from a relaxing week at the Ionian Eye. Prior to our stay, I had effortless communication from Costas the owner. He answered all my questions with no hesitation.

From the moment we arrived at the airport we were swiftly met and driven to the accommodation, all arranged by Costas.

We were greeted on arrival by friendly staff and shown to our rooms, which were beyond expectation. It was such a lovely touch to have a complimentary bowl of fruit waiting for us.

We were fortunate to have a sea view room, which meant we could spend evenings taking in the view with a glass of wine. It was also lovely to have breakfast on the balcony.

The rooms themselves can only be described as ‘boutique’. They surpass the normal standard of Greek accommodation one is used to. Stylishly decorated in warm colours, with high quality bedding and fluffy towels.

Forget about the usual ‘bad back’ you can get on the normal pancake thin mattresses, the mattresses here are better quality than at home! It was also lovely to have a double bed rather than two singles pushed together. The lighting was good, with spotlights in the ceiling and individual reading lights. Plenty of power sockets to charge phones etc.

The room wasn’t excessively large, but it has been well designed to make the most of all the space. The kitchen area is equipped with space saving gadgets to allow for food preparation. Toaster and kettles are provided in addition to every kitchen utensil you would ever need. The fridge was probably on the small side, but it didn’t cause too much of a problem.

There are plenty of drawers for storage as well as an electronic safe which is large enough to hold a laptop and a hairdryer. There were two wardrobes with hangers, however they were half size and could cause a problem if you took dresses to wear as they can’t hang full length and may crease.

There was a large TV in the room, excellent quality picture but unfortunately (for me) it had channels which showed the World Cup football, which meant I couldn’t escape it!!

The aircon was quiet and included in the cost of the room. I also like the pull across mosquito nets on the balcony window.

I’m pleased to say the bathroom had a shower which actually stayed on the wall, not like some places where you have to hold it yourself. There was also never a problem with hot water to shower in the evenings.

The cleaners came in most days to empty the bins, but they don’t clean daily. Towels were changed twice during the week we were there.

The pool area is large and you get a great view over the bay from the infinity pool. There are tables, chairs and loungers available with some umbrellas. They are in the process of building an office/reception area and I gather there are also plans to further improve the outdoor pool area.

The actual location of the Ionian Eye is on the main costal road through Messonghi. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the village to the bars, tavernas and supermarkets. One of the supermarkets will also deliver your shopping free of charge, a welcome service especially if you buy packs of water as they are heavy to carry back.

All in all, this is a suburb accommodation and I would recommend it to anyone planning to visit Messonghi.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and put you at ease immediately. The room/apartment was spotless and had the most comfy bed ever. We always had hot water, air con was included and we had the added security of a safe. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The pool was perfect, just the right temp. It is just a 5min walk from the centre and we enjoyed the quiet location.We would highly recommend this property and would even consider going again.

Room Tip: I would definitely ask for a sea view as the view is spectacular.

Perfect location, with stunning views. Studios have been refurbished. I think the quality is better than a 5* hotel tbh and everything has been thought of, even a scraper for the ceramic hob, not that any cooking was done as we found some excellent restaurants all within walking distance. Can't find a fault just that seven days was not enough!

Room Tip: Get a sea view room, waking up is a pleasure.
