“Perfect holidays are made here”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

Poppy Spiros and family are the perfect hosts making everyone feel welcome rooms are clean and pleasant food should you wish to eat is delish location couldn't be better should you wish to book and stay here beware you can only book through them there is the Bardis sun hotel next door which you can book on booking.com but it is no way connected the the studios which I have stayed on numerous occasions just make sure you book the correct and perfect place to holiday would hate you to miss out on the lovely Bardis family.

This was our second year in Arillas but our first experience of the wonderful hospitality at the Bardis Sun Studios. From the moment we arrived, the family made each and every one of us feel comfortable, relaxed and welcome. Set in a gorgeous location, literally a stone’s throw from the tranquil beach & on the edge of a lovely little village this peaceful home from home was just what we all needed. Rooms & pool were kept immaculate & food was exceptional – freshly grown vegetables from the family garden at the rear of the property - mmmm. We would like to thank the Bardis family for a memorable and wonderful holiday – we hope to return very soon!!!

Our third succesive stay was even better than the others, if that is possible. The family atmosphere includes every single one of their guests, many of us returning time after time. In fact, many book next summer before they leave, like we did.

Comfortable studios, with plenty of hot water and all you need for your stay, but this year all of the mattresses have been replaced with ones that are soft on one side or firm on the other. Easy to simply turn over. We slept like babies!!

The pool is spotless, and even I had a dip this year - normally I go the 200 yards to the sea for my swim. The bar is available all day for food, drinks, meeting or simply watching the TV. On some evenings the guests may put on a quiz, or even Bingo. Not compulsory of course, but can be great fun. Poppy's legendary cooking has started competing with the dedicated tavernas, of which there are many just round the corner.

We are always busy in the summer, being so well known, but to retreat to our perfect base at Bardis Sun Studios is often a stolen pleasure. Not that we don't sometimes get visited by friends who join us in the bar. It can be an added bonus, the way they are also welcomed so warmly.

The endearing family atmosphere makes this a lot more than a "studio holiday." But it is not intrusive. If you want your own company, the professional way the whole family work will make sure you can have that too. No wonder it is so popular, with all but 100% occupancy this whole season. If you want to try it, you will have to book early. Like I said, we have already. Better than ever.

Room Tip: Ask Bobby on booking. If you want near the bar, or far away; if you want ground floor or upstairs ju...

This is our fourth stay at the Bardis Sun Studios. This is a small family run business who work genuinely enjoy your company and nothing is too much for them. The complex is made up a two story block consisting of 20 self catering rooms. Bedding and towels are changed on a daily basis. The bar also doubles up as a cafe offering everything Greek salads made up of home grown vegetables, to curries. All very reasonably priced. The studios are situated less than 100 metres from the beach and village so taking a break from the well maintained pool to the beach is an easy option. The rooms are excellent value for money and filled by regular guests who return year after year. Arillas does not have a regular bus route but the studios will arrange transfers by taxi at a special rate for its customers. We have already booked for next year.

The Bardis family have created a unique holiday venue. This first time visitor immediately felt part of the 'holiday family.' The food served is grown by the family. Poppy is an amazing cook - may I suggest the Delia Smith of Corfu? No Greece! George, Bobbie and his lovely wife Katerina, are constantly on hand to help the visitor. Then when you think your cup runneth over - you meet Spiros , owner, raconteur, traveller, fisherman, gardener and now grape grower! Thank you for making my fortnight at the Sun Studios a memorable experience.

I can't carry on finding superlatives for the Bardis family. A business built on the back of honest, hard working people who strive and do, go above an beyond.

The apartments , while small, are clean and well cared for, the food is home cooked with, in most cases, home grown food. Poppy is probably one of the best cooks in Arillas.

Their hospitality is second to nothing and just as you think it can't get any better, Spiros made wine that was worthy of any God in Olympus, so glad the family were unable to drink it all over winter.

Thank you to you all.

Well, I like complaining. The only thing I can complain about Bardis Sun Studios is that there is nothing to complain about! Lovely position, lovely pool area and bar. The Bardis family are brilliant. Friendly, intelligent and caring. My room had a stunning view of the sea and sunsets (room 11). Tidy little apartments and very good value for the price. All the guests are very friendly and most seem to return year after year. I have always said the world is too big to go back to the same place twice, However, I would visit this place again. The whole resort is lovely and you would probably have a great time in any of the hotels (except the one opposite the Coconut bar - bit noisy). Good food everywhere. I only really had Poppy's amazing Greek salads at Bardis and ate out the rest of the time. Poppy gives you a generous amount of Feta and it's an ideal lunch. Bobby & George always serve you quickly and they ensure the beer is cold and a frozen glass. Perfect. You can have a quiet holiday and keep yourself to yourself here or make friends and chat with the family if you like. They know exactly how to treat their guests. I was joking with Poppy (who I kind of fell in love with) and her lovely son Bobby that I would be giving them a bad review on Trip Advisor so here goes; 1. Poppy claims there are some owls living nearby. She showed me an 'owl' on the roof but it never moved and I think she had thrown a pair of socks onto the roof and is claiming it's an owl. 2. I went into the bar area one day and on the tables 2 of the beer mats were upside down! An absolute disgrace. Bobby blamed George, George blamed Bobby. Poppy just looked embarrassed and went red. And that's it folks. I travelled here alone but absolutely felt comfortable and safe. Unless you are a person who only stays in the Dorchester and expects gold floors and a butler in your room you will love this little place. I had a gorgeous time. Highly recommend it and the worst that will happen to you is you will have to turn your beer mat over yourself.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Lower floor have the advantage of being ground floor and you can nip over your t...
