“Marianna Studios - Book it!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

Just returned from the Marianna in Tigaki.. what can I say? They are probably the best accommodation in Greece. Vassilis is the perfect host and has upgraded the hotel and bar to a very high standard. The rooms are spacious, modern, clean and have everything you need for a stay - including microwave and TV.. not that you need them. The bar is lovely - beautiful decor and Vassilis pours a quality drink - thoroughly recommend them. My daughter is getting married in Tingaki next year and will certainly want our guests to stay at the Marianna.

Apts -

Clean. Always.
Big (as apts go)
Friendly.
Pool great - always clean.
Good location - 5 mins to beach and 2 to shops and bars.

Tingaki -

Good location (not 'jumpy jumpy' but enough to keep you amused)
Nice beach - not crowded
Nice selection of restaurants
BAD - Mosquito nightmare cased by the salt lake between May and July. I know the mosquitos are common on all holidays but this is to extremes. Even the locals agree.

Other -

Kos town easy by bus
Water park nearby (free bus)
Hire cars (1 day 30 euro) moped, buggy etc easy.
Could see island in 1 day
We liked Lagada beach (next to paradise - better but quiet) and Stephanos.
Airport is a nightmare - Chaos! (used to small island airports - this is the worst)
Recomend Sagitarius restaurant (next to apts)

My husband and I first went to the Marianna about 17 years ago and until 2008 had visited about 8 times. After not visiting for 4 years it was lovely to see that nothing had changed, except for the better.

The rooms have been upgraded with televisions, microwaves and air conditioning. The coffee bar downstairs has a beautiful new canopy and Stella is as helpful as ever - and always ready with a joke. The bar area has been completely made over and it's a pleasure to sit there after the evening meal, making new friends or meeting old ones, and Vassilli can't do enough for you.

Maria has her finger on the pulse of everything (even while coping with little Aris) and nothing is too much trouble. We were able to keep our room until 10.00pm, although of course this may not be possible at the height of the season. The rooms are cleaned every day except Sunday, and they are cleaned properly. Towels and bed linen are changed regularly, whether they need it or not. As a previous reviewer said, as long as you know what Greek self catering means, then these studios/apartments cannot be faulted in any way. Being family run helps too.

We won't be waiting four years to go back.

We stayed in the marianna studios on the 16 th May and found them the nicest we have stayed in and we have stayed in some hotels that were halfboard and all inclusive with higher ratings and they were terrible. You could eat your dinner off the floor here and i am fussy believe me. We were delayed by two hours and the keys were left in our apartment and even moved us as i am disabled and they said fine and we moved. The sheets changed everyday and towells every other day. We had an night flights and we stayed in our apartments till we where ready to go on bus at 11,30. The staff could not be more helpful and ready to help you, they were just on edge of tingaki but flat and a gentle stroll bus to kos town just along from marianna and you must not miss the train trip could hour and half.

Room Tip: All apartments were good and views from all were lovelly

Have not written a review before, but due back to the Marianna on 11 June 2012 for the 3rd time in a row. The first time I went was with my daughter in 201 and had such a relaxing time that returned with my youngest son in July 2011. Again so impressed with everything about the apartments, the pool and the general facilities of the studio's i am returning with my partner. Tingaki is a lovely resort, much quieter in 2011 than in 2010, but think that maybe due to the problems with the Euro in Greece affecting the businesses.
In terms of value for money it is unreal, the weather is out of this world and if you want to return from holiday totally chilled then the Marianna is for you. Even the guests are friendly and the beds are never a problem.

I have just returned from here yesterday, (21st - 28th May 2012) and cannot give enough praise. It is my second stay at Marianna, the first was 2006 with family when I was around 14(20 now). The location is perfect, 10 minute walk to the beach, uncluttered views of Zia and mountains. Supermarket 2 doors down too. The rooms are lovely. Clean, well equipped for S/C, great views from balconys. Clean and tidy bathroom with shower. The staff and owners have done a brilliant job making you feel so, so welcome, wasn't expecting such a friendly and personal experience. The pool is great too. As with the food! Possibly more suited for couples but all facilities for families with children etc. Recently had the bar area built and is perfect for relaxing. There are many bars and restaurants on the same road, plenty of choice. Easily a 5/5 from me. Also around 15 mins from the airport, less if you take a taxi. Definitely going back next year!

We stayed at the Marianna apartments in May 2012 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The place was spotless and our room cleaned everyday. The bar area is very modern and has a very chilled and relaxed feel. The cocktails, particularly the Mojitos and Cosmopolitans were fab! Vassili and Maria who run the bar and apartments are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. We will definitely be going back some time in the future, and we would highly recommend these apartments.

Tigaki seems to be a quieter resort than some of the others on Kos, but has plenty of choice for bars/tavernas etc, and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. It was fairly quiet when we were there but the holiday season was just beginning and some places were just opening up again after the winter. When we go again, we will probably wait until the end of May/early June when everything is fully up and running and the weather a little warmer.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor and towards the back of the apartments away from the road. Ro...
