Sorry guys, this place needs a good shake up from Thompsons, the barman Alex rude, ignorant & agest, not just our thoughts but that of many other guests, 23 .00 hrs 8 people at the bar out of poss 50/60 (every picture tells a story) rooms dusted NOT cleaned, fab location, fab views, owner blows hot & cold, go to breakfast at 09.45 hrs & watch her face although should be served 8 til.10. Some rooms had fridges (not self catering) our would have cost 50 euros (that came from the barman) this hotel could be great if controlled properly, as a brit we complain with our feet and don't go back, we completed a Thompson form on the plane home but am sure nothing will happen This hotel as a lot of its eggs in Thompsons basket it would be a shame to see it go, it wouldn't take a lot to drag it into line.

Room Tip: sea view from side and front nothing to rear

money was taken from locked safe in our room on the first day of our stay. when the owner was approached she said it wasn't possible for this to have happened and when we suggested that the police were called she shrugged her shoulders and made no attempt to call them. We contacted Thomson and an incident form was completed. We advise that if you stay at this hotel that you do not use the safe,

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on a bed & breakfast basis during the 3rd week of June. The welcome was the friendliest we have ever encountered. Alex the barman ensured our time by the pool was enjoyable and his inclusive approach to all guests made the bar area a real fun and relaxed place to be.
The room was cleaned every day and that aligned with the free air conditioning (a real bonus) and safe deposit boxes made our stay comfortable and relaxing. The breakfast menu was a good standard continental fare which was consistent throughout the week.
An excellent week which we will book again in 2014.

Anything positive you have read so far is true I think - good position, great pool with plenty of sunbeds, close to beach, clean (sheets and towels changed more often than I do at home - twice a week here!) and feels like a holiday hotel which is just what we want. I'd like to say that I really like Maria, she is so kind and helpful and has a great sense of humour. And I saw her giving some food to one of the stray cats so she is a good person.
There are safes in the rooms at no extra charge, which is unusual in my experience and no charge for the air conditioning either. The Marianna is a lovey hotel, no it isn't 4* but if it was it'd be bland and could be anywhere... we had a really lovely time there and wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend it.

P.S. I change the sheets once a week at home

May 7th to 14th stayed at the marianna hotel. It was my 2nd stay in santorini after visiting the previous year to get married.
the hotel itself had been recently painted and throughly cleaned ready for the new season. the rooms were clean and basic but as expected for any family run greek hotel. stayed on the bottom floor which had access to the pool and amazing views of the scenery.
we hired a quad for the 2nd time also from motomania, markos is great and really looks after you.
alex at the bar was lovely and we enjoyed sharing a couple of nights chatting and socialising with him and other guests.
all in all, fantastic hotel in a great location with staff that cannot do enough for you. highly recommended.

My sister and I have just stayed here for 2 lovely weeks. If you have booked this Hotel for your holiday and have read some of the reviews, no need to worry. It is a basic hotel in a stunning setting near to all you need, yet in a quiet location. The breakfast buffet is fine and unlimited, a good start to the day.

Remember, this is a budget holiday not the Ritz, the flight and Thomson's costs taking most of your money and very little going to the Hotel. As such this Hotel represents very good value for money. Take a travel kettle if not self-catering.
Some of the reviews are a little harsh and unreasonable and the family are always there and willing to help should you have a problem.

There are 2 rooms behind the bar area that are a bit doubtful but the other rooms all look fine.

I plan to return and I am sure that you will enjoy it too.

Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing two week holiday at the Marianna Hotel. We had a nice room and balcony, although the balcony was in full sun from about 11am, so was unusable to me with my delicate, fair skin! Nice large pool area with comfy sun beds and plenty of umbrellas made up for this though. Had read previous reviews about the rooms not having a kettle, so we bought a travel kettle and made coffee in the room - saves a lot of money! The beach was a short stroll away, most of the bars along with front will give you the sunbeds for free if you buy drinks from them. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, and chatting to fellow guests at breakfast. We met some lovely people. The hotel is basic, but clean and friendly, and next to a stunning mountain - fabulous views. You really can't complain for what it costs to stay there. Perissa is such a friendly resort, you walk along the front each evening to choose a restaurant, and bump into people from the hotel along the way, and chat to the waiters standing outside - they are not pushy about you going into their restaurants. Plenty of good restaurants along the main beach front, with lovely views of the sea and other islands in the distance. Our favourite restaurant was Poseidon, with Appolon and Aphrodite close seconds. Favourite bar for our pre-dinner beer was Tranquilo - we love it there. Also Magic Bus was a great place to have a cool drink and people-watch after our swim at the beach. It's right by the bus stop, so you can really watch the world go by! The main beach front road is gated off in the evenings, so is pedestrianised, which means you can walk along in the evenings and not have to worry about people chugging past on quad bikes and scooters! The climb up the mountain to Ancient Thira is hard going, but only takes about an hour and the views at the top are amazing. Only 2 euros to get in, and well worth it. Don't attempt it in flip flops though, like some people were! Buses are quite good, we went to Pyrgos and had a lovely stroll around, also Emborio is a lovely Greek village to explore. All in all a wonderful holiday, we came to Santorini last year and stayed in Perivolos (couldn't get booked there this time, but we've actually decided we like Perissa more), had such a great time that my partner decided there was no place he would rather be for his 60th birthday this year than Santorini. We would love to return.
