Hey Mr and Mrs Maki, i hope you are both fine. I'm Zoe 12 years old, i visited in August 2007 with my sister (Katie), my Dad (Phillip) and his wife. We all had a great time staying at your place. The food was excellent, the cleaner was fab. Thanks for giving me free games of pool and my dad free peanuts almost every night. It as great and me and my sister had the most fun ever in your pools. I had great fun, i got a great tan, and i had a great time. Thanks for making my holiday specail.

We drew the short straw and stayed in Apartment 2.  Therefore we were unable to use our front balcony as it looks staight out on to the seating area for Makis' cafe.  We also had to put up with the noise of his grandchildren.   There were a couple of days during our stay when the apartment was not cleaned and the same dead insects were on the shower room window cill at the end of the week as were there at the start of the week.  The towels were not changed all week and some of the bed linen was stained. 

There was no plug on the kitchen sink and the range of equipment was extremely limited.  We had to do our washing up in a large cooker pan! 
The good points were that Makis himself was friendly, the pool gorgeous and Makis' greek salads were fantastic. 
We would thoroughly recommend Smileys as the place to eat in Roda. 
As for Libra, when the information on the board says that the collection at the end of the holiday is "over the bridge and to the right", what is actually meant is over the bridge, turn left and walk about 100yards.  This really ought to be clarified as we nearly missed our pick up.

Well what can i say Roda is fantastic and just right if you want a nice peaceful, quite, family or romantic holiday it was fabulous.

Makis apartments were wonderful we fell in love with it as soon as we got there, its so pretty they have flowers and roses and trees all along the path ways and around the pool, which i have to add is the cleanest i have ever seen. As has been said before the pool is his pride and joy and he does spend ages every night hovering the bottom and cleaning it, there wasn't a day we didn't go in the pool.
The apartments are clean and spacious and if there is anything wrong you only have to say and they will do their best to sort it out for you.
Maki, Maria the rest of the family and not to forget Pam were wonderful and so friendly nothing is too much trouble and they are always smiling and always say hello.
We had a brilliant holiday and made some really good friends, shame we had to leave so soon though before we could have any more all nighters with Jackie and Colin lol.
So if all goes to plan we will be back in august hehehe and next june we will be going out there again to meet up with all the friends we made this year.
So in all we would recomend the Makis apartments to anyone and everyone go there you will love it.
Shan and Tracy
Oh do remember your mosquito repelents, creams, candles and any other mosi thing you can get your hands on lol we went after they had thunderstorms and their were a few flying around, and dont forget to put some on even on your last day/night Shan forgot and got 45 bites while waiting at the ariport to come home lol.

We are going to the Makis apartments for the first time on 8th june and we cant wait, after reading all the reviews we are really excited.

Two years ago we went to Malia  (crete) we did ask for a reasonably quiet holiday lol. we felt like we stayed in a nightclub for two whole weeks and got no sleep the music was 24 hours.
This year we booked a last minute holiday and after checking all the possible places to go we decided that after all the reviews The Makis was the place for us!!.
Looking forward to meeting any of you staying there while we are, we will be the ones lazing by the pool everyday lol.
Let you all know what we thought when we get back!.

Hi Carrie

Makis are ideal for your mam.  The shops, tavernas etc are right on your doorstep.

The whole resort is great for people who are not able to get around to well.  The resort is small enough & it's totally flat, so it should be perfect for you all.

I hope you have a great time!  I can't wait till I go back again on 11th June.

I travelled to Corfu for the millionth time in July with my mum. I have been to Ipsos, Sidari, Paleokastritsa and Kassiopi but none compare to the stay we had at Makis and Roda Town. Makis (the owner) is a fantastic man who'll do anything to make you welcome. If you spend lots of time and money at his bar you'll be treated like royalty!

I am going back again next year in June with my boyfriend, but this time for two weeks as one was just not long enough.
I had room 13 last time with sea view and hope I get the same again!

Irene C           

We had not been to Corfu before and we picked Roda because it sounded quiet and relaxing, we picked the Makis Apartments because it offered us plenty of space with a pool - all I can say is that we were not disappointed, Corfu and the Makis Apartments.......delivered 100%!

The pool is wonderfully clean and the food is good at the apartments, although there were so many nice places to eat and drink you are spoilt for choice.  The beach is wonderfully close and the sea was so clear and warm - fantastic!
We enjoyed ourselves so much I've booked again for the same two weeks next year.  Hope we can have Room 4 again, it was spacious and had great views!
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.  See you again next year!

Just returned from staying at the Makis apts and have to say was slightly disapointed. We had the ground floor two bedroomed apartment at the front.This was situated right next door to Makis's snack bar so along the front of our balcony was the snack bar tables which prevented us sitting out there. The back of the snack bar was at our front door where we had to listen to Makis's grandchildren scream from  ten in the morning until they finally left at midnight. The elders themselves are not particularly quiet either, Which is difficult with a  baby and another small child trying to sleep through the day and have an occasional early night.

The room itself was basic as is expected for Greece but didnt find it a problem.It was cleaned on a daily basis although bedding and clean towels only provided once a weekT he pool area is gorgeous and the snack bar is lovely with a good selction at reasonable prices. Makis and his family are lovely and will do anything to help you out. The location is perfect with the beach on your front door and an excellent selection of restaurants in Roda.
However don't expect any help from your Libra rep who unfortunatly is incompetent, unhelpful and rude!!
The 1 bedroomed and studio apartments are fine here and i don't think i would have had a proble m had i had one of those.

Arrived back from Makis apartments on Monday, had a great time. First time staying in these apartments, having stayed in many different apartments in Roda, these are definitely one of the best

The rooms, although basic, have everything you could possibly need. Makis and his family are lovely, they are always willing to help in any way they can.
Makis rents out fans, safety deposit boxes and has a phone available. There is a snack bar serving a wide selection of food and drink, all very reasonably priced. At the front there is the Makis Fast Food, which is also very good. You can also order food from either the snack bar or fast food for room service.
There is a good sized swimming pool and a small children's pool which is very safe and clean. There are lots of inflatables that you can use in the pool, free of charge, in addition to the free sunbeds and parasols.
The cleaner Pamela is really nice. She's an English lady, who has lived in Corfu for a number of years. She is very nice and will help in any way she can.
I was lucky enough to get room 11, on the first floor. It has great views of the sea across to Albania and also views of the mountains. It was lovely waking up and seeing the sun rise over the mountains.
I would definitely return to these apartments.


hiya, dont worry you do get bath towels - they arn't huge like the English have em!  but you do get them. you dont get beach towels, we only had hand towels when we arrived and asked for bath towels as well and we were brought some straight away, they didn't mind at all!

the pool is really safe, there is a childrens pool and the top end of the pool is shallow anyway, hope this has helped and i hope you have a great time! WE DID!

Julie C           


we are due to travel out to Roda next week staying at the Makis apartments. In the brochure it says towels arent supplied in the apartment can anyone tell me if this is true just they take up a lot of weight when you need beach towels as well. we're travellng with two young children is the pool safe enough for them.


we got back from Makis last week, it was our first time there and we loved it!! i would reccomend it to ANYONE!! He is the kindest man and will do anything for you (if you've stayed there you will know what i mean), his pool is one of the cleanest i've ever swam in and if he would fit in my suitcase i would have brought him home with us! he's great fun! the location of the apartments in relation to Roda couldn't be any better! i miss the view from our balcony so much!!

For anyone thinking of going, food and drink round the pool is cheap and really nice as well! he also sells water - its 2E for 9litres, his safe diposit boxes are 5E for 1 week.
Roda is brilliant for families and couples, there's a lovely atmosphere and loads of gorgeous places to eat and drink!
Can't wait to go again!
p.s.   to this "stephen" fella, from what i'v read, i think i had a lucky escape going wen i did, sounds like ur a really fun guy to meet on holiday!!! NOT


Hi Susan

He DID stay in the Makis apartments.
Kiki is no longer the cleaner.  Her & Makis had a run in, 2 weeks b4 I arrived (I flew out on the 12th June, this year) and she walked out & never returned.  The new cleaner is someone called Pam - she's nice, but I still have a soft spot for Kiki.
I totally agree with you, you couldn't ask for better apartments, pool, food or people!    I'll be booking for next year AGAIN, as soon as I can afford my deposit. 
Maybe see you there sometime! lol

Susan W           

I have been to Makis a few times and was disappointed to hear the comments by Stephen. I think maybe he stayed at some appartments with a similar name but not Makis. Makis, Stamadia and his family cannot do enough for you and the cleaner is called Kiki not Pam. Yes the accomodation is basic but the cleanliness is of a high standard. Makis obsession is his pool. He cleans it everyday and the water is wonderful. Stamadia's food is as good as any the best resaurants and is reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone.


3rd time I've stayed at the Makis apartments and they were as great as ever.

Makis, Maria & the whole family are fantastic, as per usual.  Hated leaving, as normal.
Pool great.  Apartments basic (like in most of Greece), but what more do you want for a fortnight???  Somewhere to have a shower & a sleep - which I never had a problem doing in the whole 2 weeks I was there.  Oops, maybe that was down to me making too much noise in the bar till 3am. :) 
Then again, I enjoyed myself.
We'll definitely be back next year!

Makis apartments are on the main street opposite the beach, if facing the beach they are the last building on the right before the little bridge on the road to Akaravi. Opposite Makis's is a little shop which is attached to a bar - this is directly on the beach. One would think that noise would be a problem but for some reason it isn't. There is a little jewellers next to Makis on one side and a field on the other. Hope this explains to those who want to know exactly where it is. Its a wonderful place!!!!    

Susan M           

Once again, Makis apartments lived up to all we knew them to be. Our grandson loved it and we were on the ground floor at the front and still were not disturbed by the noise. Makis' s daughter from the take away at the front even served us with a meal over our balcony!!  This was in June 2005 and then we went again in September just the two of us and at our request were put in the very first room we had been in (romantic memories) . Makis and Seramptina(probably spelt wrong) and all the staff made us very welcome again. It is like seeing old friends again as we now consider them. The apartments are always clean and Makis and his family cannot do enough for us.
To Lucy Hall  - yes it is Susan (Susan & Dave ) from Crusoes.
We are going back to Makis's again on the 17th July 2006 for another 2 weeks. To keep going back says it all doesn't it!!

Hi, Could someone please give me details as to where exactly in Roda, the Makis apartments are? Any information would be great. Thanks x

Geraldine S           

We had booked other accomodation but at the last minute we had to change.  We changed to Makis and definetely made the right decision.  Makis was waiting for us when we arrived and came running up to us took our bags from us and showed us to our appartment.  Makis and family were fantastic, no complaints at all.  Everyone in and out of the complex were friendly and happy to help. The complex was always clean.

Holidayed in the Makis Apts Roda this year.First time in Roda but not the last. Lovely little resort.

The makis apts were an ideal place to stay. Spotlessly clean with everything on the doorstep without being noisy (except for the bloody dogs that are everywhere in Corfu.) We found Roda to be a very friendly resort. Will go back there again
