Will keep this brief. Have to agree with MOST of the good things said about the Marianna, but not happy, like others,about the limitations of the bar. Drinks run out, there is no atmosphere, and the barman's timekeeping is unreliable.
Also, before leaving for our holiday towards the end of July 2012, we were alarmed to see several reports of theft at the Marianna on Tripadvisor - see reviews prior to this. We were careful to hire a safety deposit box and keep our room locked. However on the first day it turned out that a couple we met at the bar had been robbed of 80 euros hours after their arrival. This was from a locked safe in their locked room!
This pilfering appears to have gone on for most of the summer. How difficult can it be to track down a thief with access to keys in a hotel with a staff of 5?
As we were hoping to return next year I wrote to Thomson to ask for reassurance. They did not reply, and consequently we will not be using the Marianna again, nor Thomson, until they can give us an explanation and confirm that the problem has been solved. It is outrageous that they have not, apparently, carried out a thorough investigation much earlier.
Happy holidays, but take care!
