“A second home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Absolutely love this place. Rooms are basic but clean, owners are friendly very family orientated place. Situated within easy reach of beach, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Ideal place to use as a base to explore the island. Beautiful

ill get the bad over with, which is no reflection on the eriva, but just had to mention how bad the thomas cook experience was. on arrival at airport we were just left to sit on the bus for an hour and a half, no explanation. even the bus driver seemed to be getting impatient with the useless TC rep. she got on the bus eventually, got some names wrong and had to go back in the airport. this happened again before she eventually climbed aboard, said "sorry for the delay", got off again and that was the last we saw of her. guests from other hotels said they didnt see a rep all holiday. the rep on the way back was no better either, reading instructions in a dull monotone and getting everything wrong. rubbish service and is making us consider binning the package experience now and booking everything separately in future.

now onto the good. the eriva. lovely little place run by really friendly people. all the comments below are true, the people are all smiles, the pools warm, the atmospheres lovely, the guests were all friendly, theres plenty of sunbeds free pretty much all day with nobody sticking towels on them at 'silly o clock' either. not much more to be said. yes the apartments are basic, but thats all you need. the beach isnt all that good in acharavi, its maybe worth walking down the front to roda for a sandy beach. we also booked a car and found another lovely sandy bay, agios stefanos on the west coast.
so yes, the eriva is well deserving of its no1 status in acharavi.

Room Tip: as mentioned already, rooms behind the reception will overlook the sea.

The eriva apatrments corfu are the ideal place for a quiet relaxing holiday and has a lovely pool to relax around right next to the restaraunt and bar.The complex is ran by 3 familly's and nothing is ever to much trouble.Asked for an extra pillow and got it within an hour also the shower didnt work right and again was sorted straight away.The evira has wi fi all though a bit hit and miss and you have to pay €4 euros a for the remote to use the airconditioning, a small price to pay to have a good sleep.The rooms are basic but very clean and for you ladies they provide a hair dryer.kitchen has a double ring hob and fridge with a kettle and sandwitch toaster a bit sparse but the location of the complex more than makes up for it.set about 200 metres from the beach front and a 5 minute walk to the main high street. Would I stay here again the answer is a big massive yes .

I knew I'd like this place from the welcome on arrival and by the print of Achilles on the apartment walls dragging poor old Hector round Troy . Nice touch a bit of classical Greece. This is a well managed, clean and genuinely friendly facility. Almost faultless apart from the cooking equipment being a bit tired. The pool is the warmest we've ever had abroad with loads of sunbeds to drink the chilled beer from. Easy to get up to the town and plenty of walking on your doorstep if like me you like to reward and long walk with beer. No problems with mosquitos until we thought there were none and left off the sprays. The sprays were obviously working. We'd go back in a trice.

Room Tip: Pay for 2 bedrooms and you'll get 2 balconies

My partner, and I, have just arrived home, having spent a lovely, wonderful, 2 weeks, at the Eriva Appartments. We stayed here, last year, but for only 1 week, as my partner never been to Greece, before, but loved it, so we booked for 2 weeks this year. The welcome from the family owned appts, was very warm, and very welcoming, specially from Elena, who, when she saw us in the pool bar, came and gave us a warm hug, and kiss on the cheek, just like old friends, meeting. We had a lovely 2 bedroom apt, this time, with a double bed, nice bathroom, and balcony, although not much of a view, but we didn't mind this. It was very quiet, in the Eriva, no noise was heard, anywhere, even late at night ! We ate a few times in the pool bar, food was freshly cooked, by either Elena, or Roula, and it was fab, specially the omelettes mmm The staff, were great, always willing to chat, and if you tried to speak some Greek, they would really appreciate, it, and would correct you, if you didn't say it properly.
The beach is only a short walk, down, the lane, beach is mostly pebbles, but we saw people swimming here, tho we didn't. Lots of places to eat, and drink, Roda, is about a 15-20 minute walk along the sea front, where there were lots more, lovely places, to eat, but the beach is much better, with plenty of sand.
We didn't want to come home, just can't wait to go back next year,
Thank you, Elena, et all.

Room Tip: We don't think, there are any tips, all the rooms seem to be in a very good position, being not...

We have just returned from our second visit to Eriva and felt we must share our experience.From the moment we arrived until we left the owners and staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The location is superb situated halfway between the beach and the town centre. Bedding and towels are changed frequently and the whole place is kept very clean. The pool and surrounding areas are very well kept with plenty of room around the pool for sun worshippers. The bar has a good selection of beers, spirits and cocktails at reasonable prices. Snacks and meals are also available from the pool bar and are of good quality and I can strongly recommend Elena's Kokkinisto. We very rarely return to somewhere more than once but Eriva has proved to be the exception. See you soon.

We found this place quite randomly while searching on the internet but could not have been luckier. The value for money was amazing and this has to be one of the friendliest, best run places 'under the sun'. No wonder just about everyone we spoke to had been there many times before and had their next visit planned. We will be back!
