Me and my girlfriend stayed in villa marie 2 years ago just to let you know that the beach near by the villa is a nudeist beach so for those with kinds i would not recommed .
i must adnit, there are bugs at night, the worst was a centipide. But the location is beautiful, very quite and quite secluded. I had no experience of brown water. I came back from them 2nd September,2003, but they are nice. You MUST visit 'ninos on the beach', danny's pool bar is excellent, they have the nicest pool i have seen in my life! the staff are excellent.
we came back from the villa marie quite disheartened. the mosquito's ate us alive. the water was discoloured (brown). A 4 inch centipede came up the plughole when we were showering my 4yr old daughter. The screams were unmerciful - from me! Thank heavens for the Venus Beach Apartments, opposite. Lovely pool (were you could have a proper wash!!!),& lovely staff. WARNING don't wash clothes especially whites, in the Villa Marie, as they turn anice shade of brown!! and take a suitcase full of mosquito repellents.
Roda itself was great. A must is Maggies, Crussoes Bar and Nikos' restaurant.
My family are off to the Villa Marie Apts on 15th Sept; would also like any further info on the location.
My sister,my mum, her friend and myself stayed in the villa marie august 2002 and it had lovely views and it was very peaceful. Pleasant 5 miniute walk into village along the beautiful beach. There was the venus appartments and pool opposite the villa and has large grassed area and snack bar. Take a torch for walking back from the village at night! and i reccomend that you visit the water park in Acharavi it's called hydropolis and it is a 5 miniute mini bus drive away and it is nice for the family.It has a small childrens zoo and a giant bouncy castle with a giant trampoline and i really enjoyed it!
I am going to villa marie apartments in a couple of weeks any information would be gratefull .I like the comments about Roda,I am sure myself, my wife and two girls will love it.Any good places to take two lively 6/4 YEAR OLDS
