“Great for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

Depending on what you are looking for, in general I would rate this place as very good. The people that own the place are very kind as to making your stay pleasant. It has a great swimming pool and the rooms are very clean.

However if you like to go out at night, Benitses is not the best place to be. Same goes for the beaches. Corfu has way better beaches to offer but unfortunate they are mostly located in the north. This way you are depending on transportation such as a car to go around.

Pro's
-Swimming pool
-Bar
-Nice and friendly owners
-Clean rooms
-Good beds
-Quiet location (not on a main road)

Con's
-Rooms are a bit noisy
-Nightlife in Benitses is poor.
-Location as in respect to the rest of the Island is not ideal.

So if you are a family looking for a relaxing holiday (kids playing in the pool, dinner in Benitses, a night walk on the beach) you really should stay at Elli-Marina.

The rooms where clean...but as a hotel was very noisy...you cannot sleep nice and quiet in the morning...i guess for families with kids that wake up at 8 is perfect...

ELLI-MARINA, Owner at Elli-Marina Studios and Apartments, responded to this review, August 19, 2010
Dear customer,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your feedback.

After reading your review I have worked very closely with my manager and staff in order to identify what caused the problem. Our initial finding shows that the children of one of the families that stayed with us during that period made noise above what is considered to be acceptable in spite of our recommendations. This happens to be an exception rather than the rule. Nevertheless, our goal is to make each and every customer΄s experience as pleasant as possible, we assume full responsibility and have decided to inform orally and in writing all of our customers on arrival concerning our quiet hours.

Once more thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and for giving us the opportunity to improve our services.

We spent fabulous two week vacation in late June of 2009 at Elli-Marina and would like to share our experience. The apartments were as described, if not better. Our room, was very well maintained and equipped (new A/C, new TV, safe box, crockery, cutlery, sheets & towels) and cleanliness was one of their strong spots. We also thought that the outdoor pool absolutely stunning.

When we arrived we had a lovely warm welcome from Elli, one of the two sisters that own this place. Elli runs the pool bar and makes absolutely fantastic jam (home- made strawberry jam served with breakfast)! The family atmosphere was all over the place and made us feel really like home!

The apartments are in a beautiful location, central enough to all the shops, restaurants, bars and beaches but enough distance from the main street to be quiet and relaxing. Weather was excellent with temperatures ranging in the mi thirties C.
The outdoor pool was stunning.
It was exactly what we were looking for!

My husband Don and I found exactly what we were lookiing for in a European vacation when we stayed at the Elli-Marina Studios and Apartments. We actually stayed in an apartment overlooking the swimming pool. The Blue High Beach was only 50 meters away from our apartment. It was July and the weather was ideal 34 degrees centigrade. The owners were friendly and courteous, and everything was very clean. Breakfast was included and very good restaurants serving traditional food , were convientiently close at Benistes. Only 10 kilometers away is downtown Corfu with very nice shops. I also forgot to add an important amenity:a refidgerator in our room! We want other potiential vacationers to know how much fun it was for us!

This was my first trip to Corfu and I absolutely had an amazing time! My girlfriend came across Ellie's studios and we decided to book it. The price was right, but as you know, there is always a risk when you book online. I have to say we were so pleasantly surprised. The owners of the place are so welcoming and sweet. They were full of advice for places to go and see and definitely very obliging with our every request. The rooms were clean, the pool was beautiful and the location was great. I recommended to my brother to go this summer with his wife and he already booked with this link: http://www.ellimarina.com/contact_reservation_en.php I couldn't recommend it more to everyone looking to explore a beautiful island.

We stayed at the elli marina in august and had a wonderful time. The apartment was very clean and the room lovely. The pool and pool bar were superb and also very clean. We had a wonderful holiday and Fondas, Ellie and Clairie the owners and their daughter were so friendly and helpful. We had such a great time we would definately go back again and would recommend it.
