"Brilliant holiday, brilliant company"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

6 of us, including myself, stayed at Elli Studios for a week and I can honestly say that we all had a brilliant time. Sonny, Sox and Alex made our stay a whole lot welcome, and most nights after we've finished in town, we would come back and play poker with Sox, Alex and other guests. During the day, there's not much to do unless you want to go out of town and do some exploring. We followed the other guests and sat by the pool all day. The place itself is built like a small community, so we felt a need to mingle in with the guests. Fortunately, everyone there is welcoming, and on a few nights we went out with a few of them.

The strip is a good 10-15mins walk from the apartments; a nice distance from the noise. Clubtrinity's nothing special. Don't go there unless something's going on. I highly recommend Crash Bar or Face (if you're up for a longer walk). Also, watch out for the reps. Don't be fooled into getting a free shot. You'll end up paying for something!! (yes, we were fooled). When going down the strip, EXPECT to be harassed by 000s of people outside each bar. Everyone chats bs, don't go into a long winded conversation with them.

Our rooms were cleaned 4 times in 7 days, although we were still sleeping when the cleaner came in. You're only given one roll of loo paper and 1 towel per person for the week, so make sure you're prepared!

The kitchen's not big enough to do proper cooking. We went out most nights, cooking pasta just once. The food at the bar is very reasonably priced, although ...greasy/unhealthy.

If you're looking for a good place to go out for dinner, I highly recommend Tex Mex, Oven Pub and Great Britain (the owner there is crazy, does live entertainment such as greek dancing and plate smashing). All 3 are really reasonable in price and portion size!

The place isn't just for young people. There were couples and families there aswell. Everyone's there to relax and have fun, so as long as you don't become too loud, then there will stay happy!

I'd highly recommend the place to anyone looking for a great holiday with friends, family or a loved one.

Anyway, we had a fab time, met some amazing people and hope to one day go back! Cheers Sonny, Sox and Kavos (Alex!)

"No Shower Curtain Or Drainage in bathroo"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Average

Open quote

I read allot of these reviews on different websites before i traveled to kavos and was looking forward to these apartments, i must say upon arrival sonny the owner was most friendly, however as the holiday went on i noticed that this hotel was not accommodating to the party animals as it is reviewed. three lads on a relaxing holiday with a bit of clubbing involved were not suited to Elli apartments the bathroom was disgusting with a damaged shower head that doesn't hang on the wall and shower head sprayed the whole room except you there is a lacking of shower curtain so the whole room literally floods. i addressed this with sonny who didnt want to understand of speak of this issue, later in the holiday we were informed that we may ask at the bar to borrow a mop and bucket to self mop the bathroom after we shower which we decided against as we would just let it drain down. the cleanliness of the room was poor with dust and dead bugs under the beds and the lack of sheets being changed we stayed for 10 nights and saw the cleaner twice both times at about 11am while we were sleeping off hangovers lol, my friends sheets had blood marks on one corner and was missing slats beneath the mattress, the main concern i had myself was the bugs that fly out of the air conditioning as this is a extra and a lot of guests don't purchase so is a wasp and bug nest, there was a wasp nest above our neighbors balcony, when the last couple days approach sonny starting trying to think of ways or charging extra (10 euros cos we used a/c during the night as well as daytime) (used a winter blanket as a cover to lay on in bed 25 euros) threatened to have us evicted from the room which ruined the last couple days as we were not confident our belongings were safe so had to carry all belongings with us at all times, i must say i liked Socrates as he would try to solve these problems that sonny had aggravated

"best hotel in kavos!"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Excellent

Open quote

13 of us stayed in Elli studios and it made our holiday. They really are beautiful apartments and open out to the garden and the pool. Socrates and Sonny who own the place were Unbelievely helpful and were always around to help us. There children also make you feel so at home. The food at the bar is nice and good price which was useful as we were quite tight on money. Sonnys cocktails were amazing and he was very generous on the spirits! The location was also good as it was 10 mins away from the main strip so you don't get kept awake by the loud bass all night. The pool is also lovely with plenty of sunbeds to relax on. Would really recommed this place to young people!

"OK Corfu"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Average

Open quote

OK apartments. Just come back from two weeks with a couple of friends. We really wanted to relax in the hotel, and not have to put up with 'banging' music and the noise of general everyday holiday makers. It was perfect for this. We were able to relax, sunbathe and gather our strength during the day, and really hit the town and have a ball at night. The beach was very close (about 5 mins away), which is a real bonus. Unfortunately, they don't change travellers cheques, which is really annoying, so we went into the town to get it done. Although we were told that the hotel did change them next door, but they charged a bit to do it. So we didn't bother. We made the trip into the town to do it, and went shopping and did bits and pieces at the same time. It wasn't something that ruined the hotel, but it would be nice if they offered this service. The staff really went out of their way to help with whatever we wanted - very friendly, good natured and up for a laugh. The rooms were clean, basic but ideal for our needds, as I don't think we spent more than an hour out of every day in them anyway. Would definitely stay there again.

Just got back from kavos my boyfriend and i spent a week in the elli are 1st impression of the hotel wasnt very good but when we got up the next morninng it felt like a totaly different place it was so hot and relaxin honestly the best holiday if you want 2 relax in the day and eat out or go 4 a drink in the night. Sonny and sox's the 2 lads will do anything 4 you they do shifts everynight so no matter wa time if you got a problem one of them will always be by ther pool bar 24/7. the only down sites of the holiday was when the goordy's turned up they was jumpin in the pool butt nacked cummin home early hours and shouting waking other people up and every morning when you got up no dout the would be some of the lads asleep on the sunbed and there clothes lashed in the pool but they soon calmed down when they got there warning of jason the rep.. the room was really clean we was worried when we viewed the reviews because alot of people were complaing about the bathroom not having a shower curtain but it is a wet room so that didnt bother us all in all we had a really fab holiday and will be returning next year or even sooner thanks 2 sonny, sox's, sophia, alex, christino and gina the dog who made are holiday so enjoyable xxxx

"highs and lows"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Below Average

Open quote

My friend and I booked Elli apartments as the reviews said it was a 10min walk from the nightlife and we wanted to be away from it all. The location was probably the best thing about the apartments as it was nice and quiet and I quite enjoyed the walk onto the strip and at home. Other plus points were that the food and drink at the pool bar was reasonably priced and the two guys there - Sonny and Soc were friendly and the apartments attracted a lot of young people so we weren't surrounded by screaming kids or loved-up couples. The hotels around it such as Sea Gardens and Sea View cater for couples and so the young people that stayed there ended up spending a lot of time around Elli pool. Other pluses were that the bar showed every game of the World Cup and is open 24/7. Safety deposit boxes are situated next to the bar so it's quite nic to have Sonny and Soc looking out for them all night. Rooms were provided with plates, cups, cutlery, a kettle and one pan but they were a bit dirty so we had to wash them. The fridge worked well though. We had a washing line, unlike some of the other rooms and that came in handy.

Bad points is that the room was very very basic. We arrived late at night and couldn't lock the door from the inside. Soc said it would be fine as he was in the bar all night and watching people come in but I wasn't happy, so we requested a new room. In the new room, there was no door handle on the inside so Soc had to drill a temporary one on which he said he'd change the next day but never did! Luckily it worked. There are no hangers provided so take them! We also were provided with just two hand towels - they don't give out large ones so I'd suggest taking your own towel. They don't change the sheets if you're there for just a week but we were there 10 days and had to request twice for it to be changed just once - that was really annoying. I'd advise taking a spare sheet from home as it's not nice sleeping on sun cream sheets!

You only have one toilet roll per week so take one. Our toilet made a dripping noise after it was flushed so we had to do some DIY toilet fixing using a ribbon! That worked out fine in the end. The shower has no curtain rail and the floor doesn't slope so although there's a drain in the middle, the water seems to sit on the floor. I'd take a shower mat if you have room in your case or you might end up breaking your leg skiing across a wet floor.

Overall we had a great holiday in Kavos but weren't overly impressed with Elli - although we expected slightly shoddy accomodation beause of the low cost, the lack of clean towels and clean sheets did annoy us. I'm sure that if we were advised to take them before we went there, our stay may have been a bit more enoyable but you don't really expect to have to do that in 3 star accommodation. It's perfect for 18-22 year olds on big group holidays who only use the room for sleeping but not nice if you want to chill out for a few hours in the room in the day time. Also, you have to pay for aircon.

Didn't like Kavos at all but the apartments were quite nice, and the owner was a good bloke. Pool was decent, good tunes round the pool and the room was comfortable enough. They were pretty cheap. Don't think anywhere in Kavos is too expensive though.

"Amazing Holiday!!"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Excellent

i loved every minute of my holiday at Elli studio and apartments in kavos. the rooms are basic but they are clean and if your only using them as a base to sleep in then more than you need, i was in a maisonette with 2 beds upstairs and 2 beds downstairs with a roof terrace and a patio area!! one of the downsides to the room was that the kitchen was very small but it didn't bother us as we ate out every night and we had lunch at the pool bar, they have a great selection of food and at really good prices!! another down side was the shower, it doesn't have a shower curtain so the floor gets soaked but that didn't bother us as you just get used to it!!! the positives deffinately outweigh the slight negatives!!! the owners sonny and socs are fab, they r so friendly and were always chatting to us especially socs when we came back from a drunken night out and jumped in the pool!!! Elli is in a perfect location as its about a 10 minute walk away from the main strip where all the nightlife is but when you want to go back to sleep its perfect as you cant hear any noise!!! you are also about a 3 minute walk away from the beach and about 2 mins from the closest shop!! there is also the best pizza/ pasta place nxt 2 Elli!!

i had the best time here on holiday and also made amazing friends!!! i would deff recommend Elli to anyone who wants a great holiday with friends, yes it is a little basic but you get what you pay for and you will deff have an amazing time!!!

went for one week self catering to the elli studios in kavos corfu. Absolutely fantastic! best holiday ever!

elli studios was about 10 mins away from the main strip (nightlife) which was a nice distance away for when you actually wanted to sleep!

rooms were quite small but as we werent really spending much time there it wasnt a problem. needed to ask for more towels as we were only given two small hand towels. otherwise room was comfortable.

sonny and sock were absolutely brilliant! always willing to help and nothing was to much trouble. pool bar was open 24/7! great for when you get back from a night out and want to carry on the fun!

pool was clean, free sunloungers around pool were never to busy. snack/pool bar was cheap - great food and cocktails especially the sex on the beach and elli special!

beach was 5 mins away but not so great! good watersports but here was sometimes a horrible smell down at that part of the beach!

the actual resort of kavos was brilliant! some great bars and clubs! you get some great deals on drinks depending on how many of you there are. best bars/ clubs were CRASH, ROLLING STONE, BUZZ BAR, THE BARN, TANGO BAR and many more!

Definitely a place for young groups of people up for getting drunk and having a laugh!

overall a fantastic holiday! would definitely go there again!

on ariving in cavos the place looked a bit of a dump and the 45minute transfere ended up taking 2 hours but when we arived at the apartments we were glad to have a beer and a plesant lunch at the bar were we lernt that the apartments are english only.

the near by beach was a state (southends is better) but the town at night was wicked me and my mates got 12 drinks for 6 euros you just have to haggle with whoever is standing out side trying to drum up buissness there was lot to do but the heat in the rooms at night was tiering< luckily the local store owner dimitrie lent us his fan for a few nights the pool was lovly but the general state of the rooms could have been a bit better

The accom was comfortable and clean, the down fall was that of course no shower curtains so after using the bathroom the floor got completly soaked!!. Towel and bed linen was only changed once a week, which was a bit nasty if travelling to the beech everyday and bringing half of it back with you!!! Would avise that you take some spare towels and toilet rolls as once you have used the roll provided, you dont get anymore, you have to buy it yourself!!. The location of the studios was ideal if you wanted to be within a small walk from the nightlife but far enough away from it to sleep once you had had enough!

The pool was excellent, very clean, free sunbeds and a lovely poolbar offering great food selection and drinks.
There was a great restaurant next door called the Venus that served fantastic pizzas and one further into town called The Lay-By that served great english pies!!!

The accom was full of rather younger groups of lads n girls when we was there so it did get quite noisey around the early hours on their return!

Overall opinion was that the accom was clean, comfortable, great pool n bar, very nice people working there, it was near the beech, shops and restaurants and walking into the main nightlife took approx 5mins.

Great holiday overall and would def go back there again.
