“Very nice studios, nice stay in Corfu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

We booked a week holiday last summer, it was our first time in Corfu. We finded the room nice furnished and the hotel very nice and clean. Very good and warm people, the owner and his family help us, they were very friendly. We were very pleased with our stay and we could find a few minutes away bars and restaurants. Very lovely was to enjoy our morning breakfast on the balcony. We will come back again to the pretty nice place.

Stayed in September in studio appt which was very clean and in excellent state of decoration, Eleni the owner and her family could not do enough for me and made me feel very welcome they even arranged taxi to and from airport for me which is well worth doing, far faster than normal transfers. If you are going to paleo go to these appts they are well worth it but contact Eleni herself and arrange your own flights, if you can afford it have the two bed appt I have never seen so much space in one before they are excellent.

Our first time to Corfu and we were not sure where to stay, we narrowed it down to Marilena apts. We were pleasently surprised, to find lovely clean apts,and in a good location for bars and restaurants. Eleni and her family were very friendly, we will definitly be back again.

Room Tip: two bed apts overlooking driveway but still quiet

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
