I visited here 7th-21st July 2014 and bearing in mind this was my first time in Zakynthos. The hotel itself is a great setting and well maintained and most of the staff were very helpful especially the receptionist Vaso, I cannot praise her enough. With the exception of one of the English staff members, who I think was called Louise... More

And a 5min walk to kalamaki strip which has various shops and restaurants . Definitely go in yamas ! There very... More

this hotel has just what you need for a family holiday with young children, staff are very friendly and very accommodating. Didn't experience 1 bad thing during my 2 week stay here, the chef at the pool bar works so hard and the food never faltered, was always service with a smile, the room was cleaned and beds changed frequently...

Just got back from the Marelen, had a wonderful time and the weather was perfect. Had some great meals out on the strip as the hotel food was a nice but basic. The entertainment and kids club staff really are excellent, I'm not going to name them as they were all great. We didn't go on a trip to see... More

Thank you for your lovely review. Regarding our evening menus - we have just updated and revamped the whole menu, so now have much more of a restaurant-type menu to give more of a varied choice, and we have also added our very own-recipe carrot cake to the dessert menu. I have passed on your positive comments to the entertainers... More

The hotel was good I did feel the prices, 40 euros a week for the air conditioning and 50 for the safe, were very expensive. The fantastic entertainment team and kids club reps are an asset to this hotel. They were all very friendly and made the holiday. Thank you

Thank you for your review. The air con is 40 euro per week in the studios and hotel rooms, and 50 euro per week in the 2 bedroomed apartments. The safes are 25 euro per week, so I assume you were here for 2 weeks if you paid 50 euros. I am glad that the Thomas Cook team made such... More

I had emailed in advance with a few requests and these were all met which we really appreciated. We had asked for a room near the splashpark and we were given a lovely one with... More

My mum and I left the men at home and just spent a week at the Marelen, chosen based on good reviews. From arrival, service was excellent, staff so welcoming and helpful. Check in by Theresa was super quick despite many people arriving at once, which was great as we arrived in the early hours and were tired. Louise showed... More
