Just returned from our first visit to Corfu. Stayed at the Melinda and could not fault it. Gail, Adonni and George were lovely and looked after us very well. Addonni even came back one night to provide some food as it had been pouring with rain all day and a load of us did not want to go and get soaked. Will definitely return to Corfu and the Melinda.

Ha ha well!
We have just returned from Corfu and our 2 week stay at the Melindas Apartments. This was one of our most enjoyable holidays we have had and everyone connected with the Melindas are so friendly and helpful. The pool and bar are excellent and George serves the best pint of Mythos in Roda! The apartments are within easy reach of the main resort over a main road, but are situated far enough away to avoid any noise from the many Bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend. Thanks for a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
We really enjoyed our stay at these apartments, the location is great - just a short walk to the tavernas and shops, the pool is lovely and so are the pool bar snacks. The Greek Night is not to be missed. Thanks to George, Gayle (who was brilliant when I fell ill) and Jenny once again for a great holiday. hope to see you all again .
To the Gress family - and George of course!!! Had a fab time at Melinda apartments - Alex could give Tom Cruise a run for his money anyday behind the bar - keep practicing the Cheeky Vimtos though!! George, the owner of Melinda apartments was great entertainment value - and even rescued my shoes from a near drowning episode!! Very friendly accommodation - and was a pleasure to meet the Gress family too - thanks for the advice re; Cyprus!! Lots of love Alex for your return to Roda next year! Mel
In responce to Denise Jacksons question, you get barely any noise at all from the Sound Club near the appartments. The only time we heard shouts/whimpers from there in our two week stay is when England got knocked out the World Cup on penalties!! Hope you have a good time!
Am just looking at booking at the Melinda. Slightly concerned about the noise from the disco. Does this depend on which building/apartment you are in? How does the annexe differ from the apartments? Thanks
hi.we went to corfu oct 2006,very nice.we had booked holiday to corfu 2007 at the melinda,so we thought we would have a look.seems to be a small family run place very friendly,next to a main road.2 bed apt we were told are on the ground floor close to the bar.dont know about cots.hope you have a great time
My wife Kath and i love Roda, and for the last 2 years have stayed at the Melinda Apts. We will be returning again this year,and look forward to seeing all our old friends at the Melinda, and in Roda. We would recomend the resort and the Melinda, to anyone thinking of going to Corfu. Looking forward to seeing you all--Gayle, Adonis,George,Jenny and your families. Cant wait. See you later. Pete and Kath
In answer to Pauls questions the beach is about 1/2 a mile away from the hotel. The food is wonderful with Greek cuisine and English too. Prices avry depending on what you want to buy obviously!! My dad rented out a car when we were there and it cost him 300 euros for a week. this might seem a lot but the only way we found this offer was by looking around. The holiday rep told us a car would be about 500 euros for a week and she was wrong. Whatever you do, DO NOT rent a car from the operaters!!! Have a great holiday, just as i did!!
Sarah is a fool! I'm 13 and cant work out how can she say such outreagous things about such a wonderful place!! A wonderful owner is what makes this place so great! George is the name he goes by and this man is wonderful. He is a great person to talk to and dont worry non-greek speaking people as George can speak fleunt English, as he lives here in the UK for the winter. me and him had great fun. Played pool, cleaned the pool and he found it great to chuck me in the pool!!As for the conditions there was no fault at all. If i had to critisise one thing about the outside it would be the outside loos but i'm sure that wouldnt put you off such a wonderful place.
Just back from a stay at the Melinda. Have to say its one of the best holidays we've ever had. Its a lovely relaxing place with plenty of space and just in the right spot (close to, yet not in the middle of the village). Our room was great with a lovely balcony to sit out on looking over the complex. The family are lovely and make it the place to stay. Everyone is so kind and helpfull especially Andonis & his wife Gail, as busy as they are they always have time for you. Even the cleaner always has a smile and nothing is too much trouble. It says a lot when you meet people who have been regulars to the complex for so many years the bar is nice offering many a laugh with Jenny who's really pleasant... & George of course... how he stays awake after his nights out... all but amazing - didn't get to meet his wife as she lives in England - maybe next year as will definatly be back - maybe a bit earlier in the year, the weather was good but a bit over cast. Corfu town was spectacular in the evening & well worth the visit if you're on the island. All in all we could not find a single fault so a very big thanks to you all.
me and my family stayed here from 29/8/05 til 12/09/05
No air con in the room im afraid...well, not when we stayed there last year. Very nice appartment and lovely pool too. Most accomadations on corfu dont have air con, fan are usually provided locally. Gayle, if you are reading this, say hi to Jenni from Jim&Gareth and get her to write.xx
hi this is for the owners of the melinda apts just got back from roda a week ago where we stopped in your apartments and we are coming back to roda next year in september i was wondering do you take bookings yourself instead of us going through travel company as i do not rate mytravel if so the dates we are looking at are 18th sept to october 3rd if so can you email me details prices etc to the following email address email@example.com
THESE APARTMENTS ARE THE BEST IVE STAYED IN YET MADE HOL GEORGE AND FAMILY VERY HOSPITABLE ALSO JENNY WHO WORKS BEHIND BAR IS LOVELY CANNOT HELP ENOUGH RODA IS NOT PUSHED BY THE TRAVEL AGENTS ENOUGH FOR MY LIKING IT IS A REALLY NICE PLACE AND TO SAY IM 29 I DID NOT WANT IT TOO ROWDY IDEAL IT WAS THAT GOOD IN FACT WE ARE GOING BACK NEXT YEAR AND ARE HOPING TO STOP IN THE MELINDA APARTMENTS AGAIN ALSO LOCAL BAR GEORGE AND DRAGON IS WORTH A MENTION RUN BY NICOS AND KERRY IS A REALLY NICE FAMILY PUB BIG PLAY AREA FOR KIDS ALSO IDEAL IF YOU JUST WANT A CHILL AND WATCH A FILM ON BIG SCREEN TAKE MY ADVICE TRY RODA
What a super place, the children were able to play in and around the pool with no worries. It is quiet and not for those who like a lively holiday. George does work all the hours under the sun, with the help of his wife Alison and young Jenny.
Just returned from two weeks at the Melinda. First off, the rooms are pretty basic, though they do have safety deposit boxes and fans available (for a small charge). However the only time we spent in the room was to sleep so it hardly mattered. They were clean, so for us that was enough. The location is not great, Roda's only a small resort and the Melinda is on the fringe. Having said that it was only 5-10 minutes to the Beach, though it did start to become a drag in the second week, having to cross the main road (not too busy to cross) and head off down into the old town.
The big plus point at the Melinda is the excellent pool and bar area, it definately has one of the largest areas around the pool, with loads of space and plenty of sunbeds. George who runs the bar is excellent and really makes a day at the Melinda poolside enjoyable.
All in all money well spent.
