“Here we are again”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Sorry folks if this is getting a bit boring but after our 8th visit we're pleased to report that nothing has changed
George and the family still work very hard at ensuring their guests have a great stay. The appartments and grounds are still very tidy and a credit to Georges staff who also work incrediable hard to achive thier goal.
We still won't consider staying anywhere else on the beautifull island of Skiathos
A truely magical place to holiday

Just got home from our second visit to the Marialena, and we had a great time. George and Maria were great hosts and I really cant understand the negatives being given. Looking at other hotels and apartments in Skiathos, Marialena is quite simply at the top of the list.

Hope to see George and Maria again next year !

We have just returned from a fortnights stay at the Marialena apartments. I had read the reviews prior and decided to ignore the negatives (grumpy owner) as the positives in my opinion far outweighed them (clean, quiet, spacious apartments off the main road). I am so pleased that I used my own judgement and did not allow the uncomplimentary remarks to put me off. The apartments and complex way exceeded my expectations. We found George to be very friendly and helpfull beyond his remit, not grumpy at all and his English is exceptional. I think Maria his wife is a little shy, however, her food is delicious and she often treated us to various tasters of her homemade delights. Skiathos is a lovely island and for the energetic there are many hiking tracks leading to some fabulous beaches. If thats not your bag vehicle rental is very reasonble for exploring,a quad costs 20 euros for a day and as the island is so small it can be covered in a day. Failing that, the bus service is very good and very cheap and quite entertaining at busy times of day. All in all a great holiday, Skiathos and the Marialena will be seeing us again. It just goes to show that one persons holiday hell can be holiday heaven for another.

After reading some varied reviews last year I was very hesitant about staying here, however it was one of the best holidays Ive had. I went with a party of 9 and spent most of the time on my own. George and Maria were brilliant to me and treated me like family. I found if you made the effort 1st then you were rewarded by warmth anf kindness. George can be abrupt when you first meet him but by the end of my 1st week he was laughing, joking and even dancing with us to Greek music. He let us play our own music and even helped organise a birthday party at the resort! The location is peaceful and only a ten minute walk from the main road with buses and taxis to help you explore. There are some great bars on the way down - The Greek nights should be on your to do list! The beach is across the main road and easy access for familys. I would give this 9 out of 10! Dont be put off by some negative comments.. experience it yourself! Locals are great and they can hook you up with some great deals to add to your overall experience!

Without doubt the best apartments we have ever stayed in in Greece.
The maids were excellent and the location was good.
When we were first transferred in the minibus we thought it was a long way to the main road but in truth it was only a 15 minute walk.
When we were there the owner had just come out of hospital and seemed a bit miserable which was understandable I suppose. We never ate there as it didn't seem very welcoming which was a shame as there were 9 of us. The best restaurant we found was Maria's, the first one you come to when you turn right out of the apartments. The food was excellent and the hospitality was second to none, nothing was too much trouble and Maria even cooked one of her speciallity dishes for us when we asked her too.
In our opinion Skiathos is the best Greek island we have been to and the Marialena apartments are the best we've ever stayed at.
I would definately recommend them to anybody.

First time to Skiathos and we loved it. Fantastic island, very scenice, nice beaches and plenty of good tavernas to eat in. The Marialena Village apartments were very nice, very clean and the pool was warm and cleaned every day. The only thing I could complain about was the owners of the apartments. They never smiled, did not speak very good english and god help you if you left a light on during the day. But, its one of the best holidays we have had in the Greek Islands, the buses were on time and were cheap and they never left any one at the stops, despite cramming us all in like sardines in a tin!
The airport was the best I have been to. Very clean, no ques and very efficient and the Thomson reps were very helpful and helped every thing run smoothly. Can wait to go back again......Big Bad

we were a bit wary having read the other reviews re the owner but you take people as you find them. in our opinion george was a plesent man but came across more as business person than front of house - but its his business!
as for the title, the appartments were by far the best we have stayed at in greece anywhere. good kitchen, good size and very clean plus cleaned every day as well. good sized 'complex' overall and nicely spaced out units with lawns and flower beds as well.
the walk to the bus stop is on the flat and takes about 12-15 mins. we used the bus or walked - no hire vehicle - and got around fine to all we wanted to see for the week we were there.
if your thinking about it then book it, you wont find better for the money.
