“So good we keep going back!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We found Maris 8 yrs ago as part of a package holiday and have been going back there ever since, booking direct with Mikka is so easy and she is so helpful. We have had room 10 on all our visits, it has it's own private patio with a fantastic view across the bay. The apartment is a typical Lindian room, but the Maris is kept spotless by the maid Helena. Fully air conditioned and with all the amenities that you need. We have visited Lindos for the past 25yrs and have just booked room 10 again for 2013.

Room Tip: Rooms 10 and 12 have private patios.

We stayed at Maris Studios in June and we have fallen in love with the place. We had room 12, which has a huge terrace overlooking the bay with an amazing view of both the beach and the village of Lindos. The room was very spacious, with a king size bed + 2 small beds for children. The kitchen is equipped with all the essential utensils and has a fridge. The bathroom, though small, was functional.

The real plus of Maris is the location. Very close to the main beach and the centre of the village it is, however, also very quiet. It's on the donkey path to the acropolis so there is quite a bit of "traffic" during the day but it gets really quiet in the afternoon when the tourist buses/boats have left. It's close to the Broccolino restaurant, which we used as a landmark to find our way to the studios.

Studio 12 is beautiful and the terrace is amazing. We always had breakfast there, enjoying the sun and the view.

Lindos is a beautiful typical greek village, with little alleys flanked by white buildings. The atmosphere is laid back, cosy and totally relaxing. Its characteristc is that most of the restaurants have terraces on the roof where you can eat and enjoy the amazing view. We tried Lindos Restaurant, Alex's and Stefany and enjoyed all of them (though the service was a bit slow at the last two).

This is our second visit in two years and we will be back!

Room Tip: Go for studio 12 if you can afford it!

Hi my partner and i had a great holiday in Lindos we stayed in Maris studios for 10 days, Elena the maid was lovely and so helpful, Unfortunately we stayed in room nr 13 it had a fantastic terrace with beautiful views over Lindos bay there it stops, i have never stayed in such a small apartment we only had space to unpack 1 suite case no wardrobes we had a hanging space for a limited amount of clothes it was like staying in a closet, we entered the terrace via a cat flap on our hand and knees on the upper floor,Stairs to the bedroom was so steep it was like climbing a ladder you took your life into your own hand everytime you came up and down them the nr 13 is apt for this room its an accident waiting to happen good luck to anyone who stays in 13, to be fair after we complained we where given room nr 12 for 1 night it was fantastic we checked out some other rooms which were lovely.

Room Tip: If going to Maris studios avoid room nr 13 like the plague.

This is our 2nd time staying at Maris Studios and came across them 2 years ago by chance. Would definitely stay again and so much so have recommended to friends who have booked. Mikka is very knowledgeable and very quick to respond to your booking and helping in any way she can.

Typical Greek studios which are extremely clean, Helen came in every day to clean, empty bins and even wash cups, always extremely friendly with a large smile.


Fab location on the donkey trek to the acropolis - few minutes from Pallas beach and same to the Village centre. The higher level studios all have private terrace with picture postcard views of the bay and the lower share small courtyards but just as pretty.

We have stayed in no.10 which has private terrace and is accessed through a pretty courtyard with flowers, plants & herbs.

Added bonus of air conditioning and free wifi.

Will definitely be there again next year

Room Tip: Number 10 stunning.

We had a fantastic holiday at Maris Studios. We stayed 5 nights in apartment number 6 with 2 bedrooms and a lovely large balcony with the most beautiful view of the bay. We loved our stay in Lindos and Maris Studios is situated in the best part of the village. Its in the old part of the village near the end of a little cobble street and is very quiet. Part of the way to the studios is on the donkey path but this isn't a problem as you hear them coming and can move out the way easily. You are only a very short stroll to the beach which we lived at while we were there. We were two couples sharing the apartment and there was plenty of room. The cleaning lady came each day and did a wonderful job. She is really lovely and it was a pleasure seeing her each day. There are some wonderful restaurants in Lindos and one of our favorites was Caesars. This is a family owned and run restaurant with great service, awesome food and the most beautiful view of the Acropolis from their rooftop terrace. A must try! We enjoyed an early swim in the mornings at St Paul's Bay when we had the place practically to ourselves and loved the quiet walk through all the little streets before they became crowded during the day. We would come back to Lindos and Maris Studios in a heart beat. It was the perfect place to stay. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private balcony

We have stayed here twice and returning to them again this year, and we found Maris Studios or (Villa Maris) purely by chance on the internet. The photos looked good and the owner Mika was quick enough to get back to us with the information that we wanted. They are a bit pricey than some other accommodation but I think purely for the location that its worth the extra.

Maris is reached by following the donkey path up to the Acropolis,and sits next door to the Melenos, bit of a trek on the narrow path with suitcases and dodging the donkeys so be prepared to flatten yourself against the walls every now and again. Mika sent us contact details before we arrived so that somebody would meet us in the Main Square and help us find the way. Which was really helpful as we wouldn't have found it the first time by ourselves!
Having stayed on various Greek Islands and usually on a selfcatering/b&b status, you get used to the simple and basic accommodation, but these studios were a pleasant surprise.
We have stayed in rooms 10 and 11, both with private terraces, and furnished simply but tastefully in the Lindian way. Air conditioning is available and you are able to leave it on all day so that after a day on the beach and the hike back up the hill, you arrive in a beautifully cool room. (In fact so cool that we found we needed the blankets that were provided in the wardrobes!) Fridge is provided along with the usual two ring hotplate, crockery and cutlery. We were also provided with a welcome pack of wine,water,flowers,honey,some crispbreads and sachets of coffee,sugar etc.
Bathroom is box standard for Greece,and a hairdryer is provided but firmly attached to the bathroom wall and can only be described as unique! (Suggest you bring your own if you need to have immaculate hair before you go out!) Hot water is plentiful though.

Bedrooms are cleaned daily and the last two ladys have been absolute gems, could hardly speak a word of English but got by with a mixture of charades and pigeon greek......really friendly and would do anything to help, even looking after your suitcases on the last day if you have a late flight.
All of the terraces (private and communal) have stunning views out over the beaches (Main and Pallas) as well as views up to the Acropolis. Pallas Beach takes approx 5 mins to get down to (bit longer on the way back up). All terraces are furnished with seating areas,sunloungers,pot plants and flowers as well as the clothes airer for hanging towels,swimsuits etc.
Nearest bars/restaurant are Melenos,Broccolinos and Rainbird, however the main area of the town is only a few minutes walk away as is the nearest bakery and supermarket. (The shop for the Melenos backs onto Maris and is worth a look inside as is the hotel itself!)

We love this place for the fact that it is peaceful and quiet, despite being on the donkey path,it's away from the main hub of the nightlife but also close enough if you want it, fantastic location, stunning views, comfortable rooms and just a wonderful place to relax and absorb the magic of Lindos.
