What a wonderful spot at the Marilla Village the location itself is in like an oasis,the stakk were excellent especially Alina who worked tirelessly if it wasn't for her the place would fall apart she is a diamond.The room was spotless with very nice touches on a daily basis.I have to reiterate the service from Alina just more than first class.There are some very good Tavernas within walking distance especially the Charlina,superb food and service.
Stunning views of Santorini.

We picked Marilla as we wanted an apartment with a separate bedroom so my husband and I could relax in the evening when the kids were asleep. Our daughters are 2 and1 years old. It worked out cheaper to book a package with Thompson but I emailed Marilla to ensure we did get a separate bedroom. They were very helpfully and explained that they could reserve a room but all apartments are on the first floor. We went with this option.
We arrived around 10pm and the reception was closed with a note asking us to go to the pool bar. We then met a lady would showed us our room (number 8, right by the pool). It was not the most welcoming of greeting and we soon realized that this lady was happy and moody all in 2min! We saw her being quiet rude to another couple. During our stay we did not come across the owners that everyone raves about in previous reviews but we did get pretty miserable looking staff.
Our room was nice and clean but nothing amazing for the price we paid. The bathroom was very small with no bath and not the safest for small children. The shower tray was made with marble tiles in an upright position and I was very worried about the kids falling on them in a small space.
The sitting room had to sofa beds, which were very uncomfortable to sleep on. The bedroom had double bed which was a little more comfortable. A travel cot was placed in the room but it had no mattress so we used the spare blanket to make it comfortable.
We also noticed a pool of water by the fridge as it wasn't working properly, we informed a lady at the reception and heard nothing more of it when she shrugged her shoulders...and to be fair it wasn't worth the hassle to chase it up.
Breakfast wasn't bad at all for Greece, they had a few cereals that my kids weren't keen on but I did bring some weetabix so just used their milk. There was the usually ham, cheese, bread and pastries but no hot food. It was satisfactory. The one bug bare of mine was that the two ladies that put the food out were smoking at the door way of the food area, not very pleasant!
The biggest disappointment was the pool area, are kids kept slipping on the tiles and the main pool was very deep. There was a shallow end but it was small and then slopped very deeply. There was a paddling pool but my 2 year old wasn't happy in there. The pools were also quiet cold for little ones.
The gardens around the apartments were lovely and little sweet favours were let in our room which was a nice touch.
One other issue was we had to pay 40 euro to keep our room on the day of departure, which seemed a bit steep considering we didn't get into our room until late on our arrival.
We were attending a friends wedding during our holiday and saw other accommodations. Our apartment was slightly better but I don't feel ours was worth the extra money.
We also found the road outside a bit loud in the morning with cars and mopeds passing before 7am and we never found out what it was but every morning we heard gun shots for ages early on, with thought maybe it was local farmers chasing away birds? It was just annoying that we never got to sleep past 7.

One little find for us was a beach bar called something like the happy fish, next the the diamond bay apartments. They didn't charge for using sun beds like most and at the back of the bar was a lovely pool also free to use if you at least buy a drink. We used this almost daily and met our large group of friends there.
We had several meals at Charlina restaurant, the owner was great with little ones and the food was lovely. We also enjoyed Gods Garden restaurant and Tranquillo, which does lovely large meals at really good prices, their wraps are big enough for two to share! The downside to Tranquillo is you have to wait awhile before getting your food.
Most of the good restaurants are around 20-30min walk away, which doesn't bother us but we would have been concerned if our girls were not in pushchairs and the road is not lite up well at night and it feels unsafe with cars and mopeds flying by. We ended up buying a torch.
There's a bus outside Marilla that goes to Thira. Its well worth a visit as its stunning views are the reason Santorini is so popular, just be aware that its busy and hard work with pushchairs as its wide steps all around and cobbles that shook our kids to sleep : )
Over all we had a lovely holiday but we were hardly at Marilla, it probably better for couples than for families. Wish we'd had the owners there as maybe our experience would have been better.

Room Tip: Apartments with separate bedrooms are on the second floor.

Spent a week in room 6 at Marillia Village Apts, 21st to 28th august 2012.Beautiful place, spotless clean, excellent staff.....all 2 of them..!!! oh plus a cleaner. Bedding changed every day, cleaner tidied rooms as well. We went bed and breakfast but it wasnt nice. The towels took a layer of skin off because they were so rough...!Everywhere on the island has FREE WI-FI.......EXCEPT HERE. ! Only 2.5 euros for half an hour internet but not the point, FREE everywhere else. Great pool but its TOO QUIET, I personally love to hear kids laughing and splashing but parents felt obliged to tell their kids to be quiet because theres no noise anywhere...! if you want the quietest holiday ever go here.Not the worst holiday we,ve had but i wouldnt go there again. it felt like "gods waiting room"....but if you do go....TAKE A FLUFFY BATH TOWEL... ouch

The Marillia Village Hotel is set in beautiful surroundings, with flowers around the door. The rooms are clean, basic and comfortable. The food is all home-cooked and the staff are very accommodating in particular 'Alina' who works so hard preparing, serving and cleaning the restaurant area. She was able to give us advice about places to visit and made our visit very enjoyable. The pool was clean but a little small but this was not a problem. These apartments are very close to the beach and there is a bus stop located just opposite, however the best way to explore the island was to hire a car at Marillia, especially eventful was to sunset at Oia, but leave plenty of time as the restaurants are always full in advance. Would Recommend Marillia to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in a tranquil environment. would love to return again.

Having just returned from Santorini, I just had to write about the excellent Marillia Village Apartments where we stayed. It is on a quietish road, set back a minute's walk from the lovely Perivolos Beach. The first impressions are lovely - cute apartments, maisonettes and studios in a very lush green setting which creates a very cost, friendly and 'greek' feel. We were lucky to be upgraded to a first floor villa which was perfect in size, decor, facilities and features (the aircon was much needed in the heat)!

The pool area, bar and reception are very nice, and the staff couldn't be friendlier (even when we complained our fridge was broken more than once). Complimentary breakfast was very varied and good quality (no fry-ups in case you were expecting them). There was a mixture of young couples, families and older couples and all seemed happy with the level of ambience and relaxation together. This is NOT an 18-30 style place though, so don't worry about noise. It is very well located (no more than 5mins walk) to all the great beach bars (quiet and otherwise) and fantastic restaurants on Perivolos Beach.

We felt at home very quickly here, loved sitting on our balcony at dusk with a glass of wine watching the sun go down, and would definitely stay here again - it made our first taste of Santorini very sweet.

Room Tip: The first floor apartment, up the flowered stairs overlooking the pool is the best in our opinion...

Our week in Marillia and Santorini was absolutely fabulous - I would recommend it to anyone. Total relaxation in spotlessly clean, stunning surroundings. Going into Marillia is like stepping into an oasis - we loved the archetecture and landscaping it seemed so secluded and beautiful particularly with all the bougainvillea in flower. The resort and Thompson's staff were kind and extremely helpful. We had breakfast at Marillia (the booking info said it would be at Santa Miramar) and it was lovely with great choice although I couldn't resist the greek yoghurt and watermelon every day. The beach is minutes away with great choice of bars and tavernas - for all tastes and budgets. The weather was amazing! The island is stunning also, and really interesting for us as we struggle to sit still for too long. As it was SO hot we didn't travel around too much - plenty still to see another time - but Oia is a must and we loved the Caldera Cruise to the volcano. We weren't even bothered by mozzies - didn't see one! Loved watching the lizards by the pool. Thank you all we really needed this break and you made it fabulous for us.

Room Tip: We expected a double bed from the pictures and got twin beds so if this is important to you check. T...

After a lovely time 12 months ago we returned to these lovely appartments. the peace and tranquilty was still the same, the staff were friendly and welcoming as before. the rooms were kept spotlessly clean. this time we had little surprises and gift left in the room by cleaning staff. ideal for a relaxing holiday and evening strolls to the restaurant along the sea front. we will be returning soon.
