These apartments are ideally situated. Half way up a hill between the town and the villages. It means it is a short 5 minutes walk in either location to either the quiet village with its excellent tavernas and several shops for a perfect walk around in the evening or to walk down to the town for the many shops and...

It's just lovely! Rooms are basic but clean and it's definitely the staff that make it... Very personal, Yannis knows everyone's names and will sit up all night talking and serving beer if you like. It's up a hill, which isn't as bad as people say and away from everything so it's lovely and chilled and quiet atmosphere, but your... More

Had a really great time at the Mareva Apts. I mean, the apartments are basic and Yiannis (the joint owner) will be the first to admit that. But it literally doesn't matter, you'll have such a great time with Yiannis and his sister Areti, that you won't care. They are such lovely genuine people who offer such a unique stay... More

We arrived to find out that there was not a room for us as the internet site we booked through at the last minute had not put a stop sale on this accommodation when the owners had requested it. Yannis and his cousin were very apologetic and did everything they could to Make things easier for us. Yannis got us... More

We loved our stay here. The only reason it has 3 stars is because the facilities were quite limited and a lot was not working or missing. But what it lacked in attention to detail, it made up for in hospitality and it was super clean. Our apparment had a beautiful view. It was basic inside but clean. Our kitchen... More

yanis and family made you feel so welcome the minute you got to the villas! the 'hill' isn't as horrific as everyone makes out, five minutes up the hill to gorgeous restaurants and a little village five minutes down the hill to the beach shopping strip and bars. can't wait to go back again :-)

I have just returned from a week at the Mareva. The family are so friendly especially Yiannis they are helpful polite and can't do enough for you. The place is clean and typically Greek. Yiannis goes out of his way to help customers and even helps them out by giving them a lift up the hill. The only downside to... More

Very good value, friendly and clean hotel. The family run hotel makes you feel so very at home and completely go out of their way to keep their guests happy. We will miss their friendly faces, and we will definitely be going back. The position of the hotel is fantastic as you have the beautiful picturesque traditional Greek village with... More
