Nireas Studios and Apartments
Ranked #8 of 19 Hotels in Acharavi
Reviewed 21 March 2011

We stayed at nireas appartments in 2008 & found the bar managers ( mac & suzanne ) two of the nicest & most helpful people we have ever encountered in all our years holidaying in greece . Both of them were great with our kids ( daughter 19 months & son 7 years old ) even when they were really busy .
The staff they hired to help (dean & dawn ) were also really nice .
We were unable to go back in 2009 due to work commitments so we had to wait until 2010 when we had another fantastic holiday at nireas , this time mac & sue had hired a lovely lady named anita . ( they seem to have a knack when it comes to employing people )
In 2008 we had a duplex two bed appartment (with 3 balconies ) which was more than big enough for 4 people in 2010 we had a two bed appartment which was much smaller & with only 1 balcony ( what heck you can only sit on one balcony at a time & you can keep an eye on the kids) we were a bit miffed (i was ) at the size of the appartment until my wife pointed out less space less tidying up .

We have found on both visits to nireas that the cleaning has been fine , no problem with cleanliness or change of towels or bed linen.

RIGHT NOW THE THINGS TO MOAN ABOUT .The sea is a bit choppy in the afternoon (SWIM IN THE POOL )
The rooms are a bit basic ( SO WHAT ITS ONLY TO SLEEP IN )

the cooker & utensils are not great ( EAT OUT ITS CHEAP YOUR ON HOLIDAY )

nireas is great for adults and familes as it is only 5 minutes walk to the beach or town

ONE LAST THING THE SWIMMING POOL IS AT THE REAR OF COMPLEX AND IS MUCH SAFER AS KIDS HAVE TO PASS THROUGH BAR/DINING AREA BEFORE THEY CAN GET NEAR THE ROAD

Stayed at these apartments and quite honestly the standard was appalling. Not clean. Sheets frayed some even had cigarette burns in. The couple running place were useless. No entertainment even though was advertised. Bar shut by 8.I could go on but only got 50 words

As bar managers we would admit the bar did close at 8pm due to lack of use. Whilst the bar is part of Nireas complex, it is a seperate business as such and therefore does have to have customers in order to be able to provide the free entertainment and stay open late.
As for the standard being appalling...... well each to their own. I personally know that the house maids work very hard to ensure the place is kept clean and tidy with linen being changed on a regular basis.

Both the staff at Nireas and the tour compay's rep went out of their way to try to help this family. Several options were offered, all were declined. Eventually the family accepted a move to the apartments next door.

Dissappointed that these apts.were not 'typically greek'. in fact nothing about them were greek in my opinion.Suzanne and Mac.did not go out of their way at all to make my friend and I feel we were there to 'enjoy' our holiday experience in their company.There were very few smiles or welcoming greetings.Perhaps it could have been because our apt.was right beside the entrance on the ground floor,hidden by undergrowth,lovely big terrace but no sun could possibly reach us through the bushes.Our paths had no need to cross as there was no Reception,only the pool/bar area and I don't think they would have asked for our door key ? We waited 4 days for a cleaner/towel change etc. had to request this on the 4th afternoon and was assured the cleaners HAD been in before,but we knew they hadn't.Suzanne and Mac grudgingly alerted the cleaners and it was done plus clean towels. (There were no cleaning tools in the apt. so that we could have made attempt ourselves)
Another dissappointment for me was the lack of quaintness and greek feel to the town area of Acharavii but the beach front and one special Taverna,Woody's, made up for everything.We ate there every night and it was always full,but no one was ever turned away,room was always found somehow! Wonderful food,and such a choice and a GREAT welcome every time.
Walking along the beach front to the next resort Roda, was very pleasant,and Roda had a bit more going for it,depends what one is looking for really.
To sum up.no,we wouldn't stay in these apartments again,(the Matoula nextdoor was a lot more popular)and we probably would't go back to that resort again. But we would definitely go back to Corfu.

Nireas Apartments and Studios are self catering, they are not a hotel with a reception area etc. Suzanne and I run the pool bar which also acts as a reception area for any guests wishing to use it. All guests are greeted and shown to their accomodation upon arrival either by Suzanne or myself during the day or by a member of staff during the night and all guests are made to feel welcome if they chose to use our facilities.

At 18 years old we went as a group of five looking for a fun holiday with sun and a good atmosphere. suzanne mac and anita were lovely and welcoming. they were all extremley helpful and friendly they really made the trip wat it was along with the other hotel guests. it was just a remarkable atmosphere.
The room was amazing and big, with two bathrooms and three balconies we couldn't of asked for more space. the accomodation was comfortable and clean. the pool bar was amazing value and when needed alterations were made to our picky taste bus :P
the pool was amazingly big and accomadted five roudy teenagers and our games of piggy in the middle and swimming races.
You must go to the greek night, i have never laughed so much, following the meat platter ( which was lovely) and the liter of wine greek dancing was amazing and so much fun.

For a first holiday away with my friend i couldn't of choosen a better place to go, everyone was fiendly and helpful, and the weather was amazing with dily weather reports we knew wat to except. i would definalty go again and advice others to book this amazing hotel which is great value, with gret (cheap) resturants and cocktail bars around. (i will take this point to reccomend lemon garden on the main road, again lovely staff and environment and great cocktails :D)

I was there with my family until the 10th of august. The resort staff were always friendly as was the rep, Who joined in the fun and games in the pool,.The staff also remember peoples names, which i think is a nice touch. The rooms and grounds are always kept clean and tidy. We never had a problem getting a sunbed even though the pool area was popular and people came from the (first choice) appartment's next door. We did meet some nice friendly people out there, and hope to keep in touch with some of them. And the sunbed situation might show the fact that the Nirea's complex is popular and people liked being there. The lilo races arranged by my son in law and me bud were fun and the whole pool joined in including nikki the rep and mac & anita. well done. Once again thanks to the staff, Mac, Suzanne, Anita And Nikki. Best wishes and see you all again soon, remember keep in touch x

This is the 5th time I've been to Acharavi, although I didnt stay at Nireas this year, but I spent the most of my time at Nireas Apartments. I love it so much there. The stuff, Sue, Mac and Anita are the most polite and helpful people I've ever met. They are fun and a good laugh. In the 5 years Ive been there, Ive never had a dull moment! The apartments are always clean and nice too stay in. The swimming pool is nice and clean. There is always plenty of sunbeds, even when there are 10 of us in one party as well as the other guests staying at the apartments.
I can't wait to go back there! I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
