Just visited the Marelen for a 10 day holiday with my family and it was our first time to Zante. The hotel was FAB! We asked for rooms near to the splash pool as we were told these rooms were quiet and we had our 7 year old daughter. The rooms didn't disappoint, they were clean and had everything we... More

We stayed for a week mid-August as a family of 4 with our daughter (7) and son (3). This was our 6th time in Kalamaki - we love the resort and looked forward to trying somewhere new. This was our first visit with our son, so the lure of the Splash Pool and the free kids place was too much.... More

We do not have many rooms with double beds but as you had requested... More

The hotel itself was clean and looked after. The apartments were clean and fresh towels regularly, but this is the only place we have ever stayed where we have had to pay for air conditioning which we thought was dreadful and should of been warned in advance. This is lovely and close to the beach and ten minutes walk to... More

Thank you for your review on the Marelen. Your tour operators website and brochure clearly state there is an extra charge for air conditioning. I was sorry to read that the food did not live up to your expectations, we wish you had brought up any concerns while you were here. If you have any further comments to help us... More

Had a lovely time at the Marlean, good for families. We were lucky to have a refurb room number 308 which was great and near the pool! Rooms are on the small size but it wasn't a problem for a family of 4. We were on bed and breakfast which was good.Hotel staff work hard and hotel is cleaned regularly.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. As you stayed in one of our refurbished rooms, and you seem happy overall, and the only negative you commented on was the pool toilets I am wondering why you have only scored us 3 out of 5 overall, where all your individual scores are 4s or 5s. Please email... More

We stayed at the Marelen for a family wedding. The hotel was therefore chosen by the bride and groom. It is not the usual place that myself and my husband would stay. We would pick somewhere quieter without the poolside entertainment. Regardless of this, we had a good stay. The hotel is very nice. Rooms were adequate, clean and comfortable.... More

We stayed for 2 weeks in August,b&b, with our children aged 5 and 8. I would def recommend this hotel to families. My children really enjoyed the splash pool, a lovely lady works there who is so informative about Greek history / culture and worked so hard. The hotel was well maintained and set within lovely grounds with a wide... More
