Where do I start? What an amazing holiday we had at the Marelen. Ok, so it's partly down to who you're with - and we're awesome, but this place exceeded all of our (equally awesome) expectations. I can't speak - or type - highly enough of the Thomas Cook reps. They treated our children like princes and princesses and gave... More

Thank you for your fantastic review. The team of Thomas Cook entertainers, reps, and kids reps are certainly proving to be very popular this year! You'll be pleased to know we have restocked the shop with the crystal souvenirs (and the bar with ouzo), and we are glad that the teething problems you encountered with the hot water on our... More

This was a very nice hotel, with very nice and helpful staff. A short walk to some restaurants and shops in the nearby town. Clean rooms. A bit crowded pool. Very annoying with people leaving towels on sunbeds in the morning to "block" them for later use... Wish the hotel staff would do something about this.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Unfortunately it is difficult to control the reserving of sunbeds, which only seems to happen periodically. We hope you will return to the Marelen for a future visit. More

We travelled as a family in August 2014, and have booked again for July of this year. This is the only time we have returned to the same place twice, which says something! The rooms are basic, as with most Greek properties, but they are cleaned regularly and comfortable. We dined a few times at the hotel and the food... More
