Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stayed in apartment 5 which is a 2 bedroom top quality traditionally furnished apartment and had a lovely stay. A bonus was the 2 balconies - we enjoyed having breakfast on the front balcony and evening drinks on the other with the smell of orange blossom which was delightful. The apartment was kept spotless and had everything we needed. The beds are definitely firm though. The swimming pool area was lovely and of a high standard with views of the hills. We thoroughly recommend these apartments to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Corfu.

The Spiros taverna across the road was excellent - try the chicken 'tebokos'. We tried a few other tavernas but felt this was the best. The house red for 4 E half litre is very drinkable!
We'd recommend visiting the local villages - Lakones, Makrades, Krini, Liapades and Doukades. We walked to them all but hiring a car would be a good option. We used the Corfu sunflower walking book which we were lucky enough to find in our library.

We travelled at the end of October and some tavernas were closing by the end of the week we didn't have any difficulty and the weather was surprisingly good for the most part.

Booked a late holiday (5 days before departure) with Cosmos and were delighted witrh the quality of the Marilena Apartments. A 2 bedroomed apartment was superb for our family of 3. (Mum, Dad & 7 year old).The apartment has everything you could possibly require apart from sea views, and is beatifully clean and well-kept. The pool is lovely, although was freezing cold - we just gritted our teeth and got on with it! The apartment is a 2km walk away from the beach at Paleo, and we hired a car as the walk was very hilly and long for a child, but adults could walk it quite happily. We ate at Spiros Taverna opposite, and enjoyed great food in the evenings. We had such a fantastic bargain with this late booking, and with 5 out of 7 late October days being sunny, we felt it was a lovely holiday. On the last day it rained, and we visited the Aquarium near the main carpark in Paleo - this is an excellent attraction. We were givenn great service by Aris - who very patiently let our daughyrer hold snakes and bearded lizards to name but a few. He then let me leave to get my camera and did it all again for us! I would highly recommend a visit to the aquarium if you stay here.

Room Tip: We had room 10n - a lovely 2 bedded apartment. No views or noise to mention, just book according to...

We stayed here last September and had a great time. Although not very central, there were several good restaurants within walking distance and a supermarket quite close. The apartment was well equipped although the bed was not to our liking as we found it very hard (the floor was softer!!!!) Very clean and the pool was great. We also liked the book exchange. I read 4 books while we were there.Corfu is a lovely island and September is an ideal time of the year to visit although we found the wasps to be very annoying.

We stayed during September 2012 and had a fantastic time. Eleni and Maria work very hard and the accommodation is spotless. The Acapulco bar continues to be a breathtaking location. Also try the butchers up the hill towards Corfu town, well worth the trip. We shall be back next year. The Burgess family

we stayed at these apartments on the 5th october 2012 for a week and booked direct with eleni because they got great reviews on trip adviser and we werent disappionted, we have been going to different islands in greece for nearly 20 years and have stayed in alot of acommodation and these are right up there as the best.the apartments are very well kept and are spotless we felt realy at home as soon as we were meet by eleni's mum maria, the apartment had everything and probably the best shower we ever used,most times when you get to your apartments you need to get to a supermarket but here we sat down and had a cup of coffee on the large balcony as there was tea/ coffee supply's in the room [great touch] the pool area is lovely and private and we were never intruded in on our overall stay at the apartments,we hired a car and toured alot of the island and both agreed that paolo is the nicest place to stay, a trip to the old town is a must we went on a saturday and wandered into 2 weddings which was lovely, we did the tour of the ioian coin bank the lady guide was just fantastic, a trip on the new nautilus craft was brillant,lunch at the bella vista resteraunt way above paolo is well worth it great views and food, and spiros's across the road from the apartments has nice food and good value,

overall we realy enjoyed our stay and will be back, eleni and family are lovely people to stay with and are always at hand if you need anything

I spent 7 nights at the apartments in Aug/Sep 2012 with my children, aged 11-18. The booking was a bit of a gamble never having been before and with a lot of choice locally but we struck lucky and had a fantastic stay.

the apartment was a good size and well-equipped (TV very basic but that wasn't relevant to us). We had air con and wifi included in the very reasonable cost. The apartment was cleaned daily and when we were being lazy about washing up, even that was done for us.

The pool is well-kept and a decent size and we had it to ourselves a lot of the time. there was no disturbance or noise from anywhere. If you want night-life this might not be for you.

There is a taverna opposite that was good enough for us to go there every night. Also a supermarket very close by.

There is a small, stony beach about 20 mins walk and much bigger sandy one about 45 mins.

For a quiet break I would wholeheartedly recommend these apartments.

Marilena Studios are excellent value for money.We stayed in no 1 at the front with lovely views from the balcony. The apartment was very spacious, extremely clean and well equipped. Would thoroughly recommend Spiros Taverna across the road. We were concerned that we would be too far from eating places and beaches, there is nothing to worry about There were plenty of eating places and it took us about 10 minutes to walk to the beach, it was just a gentle stroll not hilly like we expected. I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely accommodation., Eleni is extremely helpful and will answer any questions you have by email.
