This hotel did not live up to expectations. Staff were good and facilities adequate but food was very low quality and rooms needing updating. Kalamaki is a tawdry resort on a beautiful island. Much better to be north of Zante Town. Everything extra - WIFI,AC,Towels, Safe etc.

Where to start... very impressed with the quickness of off the aircraft, suitcases retrieved and transfers to the hotel. Once we arrived we were greeted by a lovely woman who encouraged us to leave our suitcases outside reception so that checking into our rooms was professional and swift. We were asked to leave our passports and reception which I we... More

The hotel was large, in good order, very clean and the staff only too pleased to help. Lovely pool area, and excellent pool bar. The rooms had every thing you needed, had a decent shower and were cleaned every day and fresh towels put out. All staff spoke perfect English but were pleased if you tried to tackle a phrase...

Ok, lets start with the good things about the Marelen Hotel, Kalamaki in Zakinthos. As Greek accommodation goes it is reasonably well equipped , a small kitchenette with Microwave, Toaster and more than adequate crockery and utensils to self cater whilst away from home. I have stayed at a variety of studios and apartments throughout the Greek Islands and in... More

Hotel is located in the quieter area of Zante. Rooms very basic but clean. The entertainment was poor and annoying but you don't have to suffer it. Air Con was 46 euros for 10 days and the safe was 36 euros. Very expensive. Food was nice in the snack bar and ok value.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the Marelen. I am sorry the entertainment was not to your liking, it has proved very popular with most of our guests this summer. We hope you will consider rebooking the Marelen in the future. More
