Yet another great holiday at this hotel . This is the 8th year we have used the Marelen Hotel and we have never had cause to complain. The owners are always pleased to see you. They have improved the dining area this year by adding an upstairs area.

Read a lot about this hotel, so went open minded. No need to worry. One of the best Greek hotels we have visited. Travelled out with my wife and daughter on 14th June 2015 for 2 weeks . ( Self catering). Studio apartment was ideal. Plenty room, plenty storage and cleaned every day. Staff were excellent. Vaso, Wendy, Theresa at... More

We are just back from the Marelen apartments, the location is fabulous 2 mins walk away from the beach and roughly 5/10 mins walk from the main strip depending on how fit you are. The apartments are very spacious and clean, the maids were in nearly every day, we had a 2 bedroom apartment on the ground floor which had... More

I stayed here on self catering basis, I was impressed at the standard of the hotel for a Greek 3star. The apartment (2bed) had very spacious bedrooms, it didn't have a living area just a kitchen/diner which didn't bother us as we don't spend any time in our hotel room aside from sleeping! There was more than enough storage with... More

Thank you for your review, I believe it is very useful for our future guests to read travel agents opinions. I am glad that you were impressed with the standard. We don't have any record of you reporting any issues with your shower, which is a shame as we would have liked to resolve this while you were here. While... More

We can not fault marelen. Vaso met us on the steps with a lovely smile and much needed orange juice. Our room was just what we asked for. Two large bedrooms and a decent kitchen and bathroom. What makes this hotel special is the friendly atmosphere. Theresa and Wendy are always helpful, and make sure everyone is ok. We travel... More

We stayed at the Marelen in Kalamaki, Zante for 1 week from 8 June to 15 June. We were due to get married on 11 June and it was supposed to be a lovely family holiday (though our family all stayed at various other hotels, none at the Marelen). Besides the main disaster, we realised having visited our family at... More
