Marilena's apartments are owned and run by Eleni and her family. We booked independently and from the beginning the service was excellent. Eleni could not accommodate us for all of our holiday (which I had requested having read previous good reviews). She did however find nearby accommodation for our last two nights and organised all of our move, including personally giving us a lift there and sorting out all the prompt taxi services back and to to the airport. Marilena's apartments are extremely clean and provide a better standard of accommodation than I have previously experienced in numerous apartments in Greece. The apartments are on the smaller side but they are more than adequate and the facilities, cleanliness, and service more than compensate for having a slightly smaller room. This was a view shared by other guests we spoke to. The pool and setting is lovely (Marilena's is at the top end of Paleo, near some good restaurants and beaches). There is the well known 20 minute-ish walk up and down the hilly road into the main resort but this did not present any problem for two not particularly fit people! The Aghia Triada and Lipades beaches nearby are quieter and, we felt, the more picturesque beach areas. Paleo overall is beautiful and we would definately choose to stay at Marilena's again.
