Good question!!! I have just been looking for the Marelina Appts to book for next year and cant find them Please somebody tell us how to book these appts.
Can anyone tell me which tour operator these apartments are with now, I stayed there in 2007 and went with manos, but they don't seem to be offering them for next year?

We have just returned from Sidari and agree with Sarah Kings comments. We could not fault apartments spacious, clean aircon for both rooms pretty good value (compared to previous holidays) location great. Yes you can hear the karoke bar but once the doors are shut it's not too loud, having said that we were out late most nights. Pool was great and was kept clean. Owner very nice regularly popped round to see if all ok. Only gripe would be all shelfs in fridge hanging on last legs so to speak but we managed. Main beach good for watersports also liked smaller coves of the Canal D'armour area we were recommend one down track from bedlam bar and it was beautiful.
I have just come back from staying in these appartments and i have got to say all the bad comments that i read before i went are so untrue. I stayed with my husband and two children aged one and five and found them to be very clean and not at all noisey, yes there is a bar at the end of the road but when you have your doors closed you can't hear a thing. The owner is very nice and if you have any problems she will sort them out straight away ,i've got to say i would go back there tomorrow. HOPE THAT HELPS
Just come back from the Marilena .. fantastic... very clean...excellent locations for beach... food.. bars... can not fault it...
We have just returned from the Marilena apartments and can not fault them..
The Manos website describes Marilena as 'in a quiet setting' and 'in lovely gardens', neither of which are true. The apts are 50 m from a karaoke bar which is VERY loud and stays open until 1 am. It is not a good place for a family with young children to go.
Went to Marilena in July 2005, and they have a telly in each bedroom - amazing. Very clean and marilena the maid is so lovley. Pool was quiet so nice and relaxing. Would definatly go back if not just to chat to Marilena herself......
To Lisa, the Marilena apartments are literally in the resort centre, they are set back off the main strip, which is literally a 5 second walk onto the main strip. The nearest bar is at the bottom of the road that the Marlilena is on it's called the Siesta bar, and it was really good. They do play karaoke there till the early hours of the morning and the drinks are a little more expensive than most places but the guy they had DJing there was such a laugh!!
Myself and 3 mates (all 25 yo lads) stayed at the Marilena Apartments from 29/8/05 - 12/9/05. The apartments themselves were good: clean; well-equipped (fridge, toaster, kettle, small electric oven with hobs, etc); good location just a few minutes walk to the beach and to the centre of Sidari; reasonably quiet (except for the karaoke bar down the road which stays open until 1am, although we stayed out until between 3 - 5am most nights so it wasn't really a problem for us!). The problem is the travel company that own these apartments - Manos. They are the worst travel company that i've ever had the misfortune to book a holiday with, and I would strongly recommend that you DON'T book a holiday with them, unless you want a badly organised holiday where you're constantly lied-to by the reps. Here are a couple of examples of our experience of Manos on this holiday:
All of the other guests at the Marilena that we met had similar complaints about the Manos reps. As I said, the apartments themselves were good, and all of the people staying there were very friendly. It's just a shame that Manos are such a bunch of muppets. We did actually have a very good holiday overall, as Sidari is a good place to visit if you're young and single (nice beach, plenty of bars, etc) but don't want to go somewhere as tacky as Kavos, and there are plenty of other things to do on Corfu. We went on a few day trips (not organised through the Manos rep, for obvious reasons!) to Corfu Town, Albania, and Aqualand (a water park), all of which I can highly recommend.
Stayed in the Marilena apartments for 2 weeks (27/6-11/7/2005) and must say they are the best we've stayed in. As soon as we arrived the lady who owned then was there to meet us, showed us where we were staying and waited to see if everything was ok. Pool was great, private and quiet. Situated in perfect position 2 minute walk to centre which was fantastic. No faults at all. Big rooms, maid service. The family who ran it was great and found the other people staying there very friendly, as it's a small apartment block everyone speaks to everyone. thoroughly enjoyed it would definatly go back
These apartments offered more than the usual greek ones, our room was a twin room so there were two bedrooms with twin beds, a kitchen and dining area, with oven, kettle and utensils and a dining table, they also supplied a television in each bedroom. They were situated very close to the main strip but were off the road away from the hustle of the main strip, overall it was good we would recommend it.
These apartments were taken over by new owner's in 2004 they have been completely refurbished. They are very spacious, nicely decorated and have everything you will need. Maid service every other day. Air-con is available payable locally. Ideally situated 5 minutes from main road but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Swimming pool installed in 2004 with free sunbeds. Safety deposit boxes available free at the crossroads opposite Mc Donalds. Tour operator Manos @ www.manos.co.uk.
