I know the owners moved to Canada a few years ago.
I thought they may be closed as I couldn't find any listing for them.
Do you know if they are open under a new name/owner?
There is no new owner.Just left empty the last time I saw them.
Ahh that's a shame, thank you for your help!
I was also in Faliraki in 2000, stayed at the Matina, on a club 18-30 holiday. We were even filmed by the itv cameramen who were filming the now infamous Club Reps tv show. Were you there on an 18-30 holiday too?
The once-basic Matina has now had a radical overhaul and been renamed Kriamos blue Greek. It’s hilarious to see it get 4.5 out of 5 on TA when I think back to what once went on there. I wonder how many of today’s guests know it’s history.
Club reps was awesome tv remember the boss called mags I think
No we went on a normal holiday but as a group of 4 young women (aged between 18 and 25). We had an amazing week and enjoyed our time in both the apts and area. I'll be returning at some point in the future with my husband and wanted to see if the same place was still there but obviously not!
From what I'm seeing it's not the party resort that it was 20 years ago?
The Club Reps. shows destroyed Faliraki.It took many years for faliraki to recover.
It is now very much for families /couples .
Club 18- 30 stopped coming to faliraki a few years ago & moved onto Ayia Napa.The mayor of Ayia Napa welcomed the end of Club 18-30.
The best thing that ever happened was the company along with Thomas Cook went into liquidation in 2019.
I don’t think the club reps show can be considered the only factor with what happened to Faliraki.
It had already developed a reputation even before the TV show started - which is why young people went there - such as the warship-full of young American Navy sailors that we met. They had heard about Faliraki and made a beeline for it.
Honestly I'll be glad its not the same when we go back, I've never really been a hard-core partier and it was a shock to me even at 18 years old.
However, we've both been previously on friends holidays (separately) and would like to return because we both thought the area was nice and would like to experience it again now that it's not party central
