“Fantastic! Can't wait to book for next year.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I stayed at MariGianna apartments with 9 other people including one child for 10 days in August this year and it was fantastic. The nicest place Iv ever stayed to be perfectly honest.
Manos and billy run the place brilliantly.
Most of the rooms have been recently refurbish and are to a very high standard!! Beautifully clean and spacious. Even the rooms that haven't been refurbished are still lovely rooms!
The maid cleaned our room every day, tidied up, mopped the floor and even washed our dishes, lovely lady and very smiley! Not only are the rooms kept clean, the pool area is immaculately clean and Billy keeps the bar in tip top shape! The playground, pool table and kids pool keep children entertained all day and night! Billy works behind the bar and is the son of Manos the owner. He has a fantastic energy and so helpful! He played with my friends daughter on many occasions, letting her go behind the bar and get some juice etc.
Manos will try his best to do what he can for you, and he does a great job. The apartments are fantastic and the atmosphere is great.
The apartments are in a lovely area, with the harbour a short walk round the corner. Along the harbour on an evening you can watch the sunset whilst eating some amazing food. We highly recommend a place called Avra. The greek guy who's parents own it is getting married to a girl from Leeds in a few weeks and Billy is the best man. Lovely couple and the food is beautiful. We would also recommend pink flamingo, just next to the apartments, from the outside it may not look too appealing but the food is freshly cooked and delicious.

Do not listen to any bad comments about MariGianna, some people are just too fussy. We could not fault this holiday at all. Manos and Billy are so friendly & you are very likely to want to go back like we do!

I hope this review helps and I hope you enjoy your time at MariGianna, it is well worth the money!!!

If you read the positive feedback for Marigianna then you will do what so many guests do each year......and that is to return time after time to see Manos and Billy at the Marigianna. What better recommendation is there ? Why do people return? Marigianna is always spotless, the cleaning staff work very hard to ensure this. Manos runs the show and has amazing energy and a strong desire to make absolutely sure that you are happy with all aspects of your stay. He really cannot do enough for you. Billy works the bar and puts in some long hours. He has a great personality and easily makes friends with each and every guest, regardless of your age, he is everyone's friend. The pool at Marigianna is a good size and very clean. The grounds are mostly grassed and a small amount of common sense says that some footwear would be sensible as there are a few wasps about. Be sensible and there is no problem. There is a lovely view of the mountains that changes with the sunshine and shadows throughout the day. Situated close to the supermarkets and shops of Sissi, nothing is too far away. There are a number of good restaurants in Sissi too so do explore. Sissi restaurant reviews are worth a look too. Ultimately, we will do exactly what this review suggests and be back to Marigianna next year to enjoy another relaxing and happy atmosphere.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the MariGianna. We are regular visitors to Crete but had never stayed at Sissi before as we fancied a change and it's good value for money. We booked the Mariagianna on the basis of the good reviews and the website. We are so glad we found these apartments as we had one of our very best holidays here!
Don't be put off by the reviews about the poor accommodation as since these the apartments have been refurbished (in 2011) and so are extremely comfortable and in great condition. The place is spotless - a lot of hard work goes in to making everything clean.
Manos and Billy are fantastic and made us feel really welcome and so at home. They really are such lovely people, and so is the lady who cleaned the rooms.
The apartments are great for children as the pools and the playground keep them entertained!
Sissi is a really lovely place. We found everyone to be extremely friendly - especially when we practised our Greek! The restaurants are very good and reasonably priced. The mini golf is great for kids and so is the Pink Flamingo (don't be put off by the name!) - my husband and I had a nice quiet dinner together while the children played on the playground that is there.
We do recommend hiring a car as Crete is such a picturesque place with so many nice places to see - especially the beaches.
So in summary we definitely recommend Sissi (unless you are after crazy nightlife, but Malia is down the road for that!). Sissi is great for families and couples alike. We also recommend the MariGianna as being a really lovely friendly place. Billy mans the bar until the last person goes to bed - I don't know how he manages it!
Thank you Manos and Billy (and the lovely cleaning lady) for a really fantastic holiday. Hopefully see you again soon! Clare, Mike, Jonny and Florrie x

Just spent a relaxing week in sissi. A gem of a place with little traffic, friendly taverners and a harbour that is Like swimming in an aquarium. Staying at the marigianna you will be made to feel welcome in comfortable accommodation with Manos and Billy doing all they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The harbour taverners, shops and swimming is a five minute walk and the choice of food is excellent, bare in mind that nothing will be done in a hurry so kick back and go with it.

We booked this holiday on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. A very friendly atmosphere awaited us when we arrived. Manos could not do enough for us, always pleasant and happy to help with whatever we needed. Billy was exactly the same very thoughtful and friendly and always there to help. The apartments are spotless and this goes for the public area also, they never stop cleaining and working and the effort they put into this shows in their accomodation. The courteous and friendly welcome we received from Manos and Billy means we will definately be coming here again. The pool is a perfect size with plenty of beds available. This is not too far from the harbour and very close to the beach. On behalf of Mark, Lorraine, Mitchell and Tommy thank you Manos and Billy we had the most fantastic holiday and you WILL see us again!!!!

The pool was great and the location is nice. We booked a studio apartment for 3. Unfortunately, we were given a very small dark room which was next to the bar. The music played until around 1.30am every night and made it hard to sleep. When we politely asked to be moved, the response was rude and unfriendly. We were not moved. They made it clear that we were not worth their time as we were 'only staying 4 nights'. This poor attitude continued throughout the holiday even when buying simple things from them, such as air conditioning.

I would not recommend this accommodation, although I enjoyed sissi very much. It was a lovely peaceful area with excellent seafood.

I stayed in these apartments in June and I would highly recommend them. I agree with all the reviews about the rooms and public areas being very clean, the owners are brilliant and will do anything for you. Lots of thought has gone into the care and attention, they have really thought about what their guests need when they’re on holiday.
Sissi is a lovely resort, if you go to the Harbour for a drink or meal you’ll always have fantastic views whether it’s the mountains the harbour or just people watching. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and the locals are such wonderful friendly people. For eating out, my advice would be to print off the list of top 17 restaurants in Sissi which is on this site, and stick to that. If you feel that they are trying to persuade you to go into their restaurant, then don’t, as there are plenty of good restaurants that you can choose from.
Overall we had some very good meals, met some wonderful people (Nicki from Neromilos) and would definitely recommend Sissi and Marigianna apartments to my friends and family.
