Hotel Marathon is a lovely hotel set on Eucalyptus Rd in the centre of Kolymbia. This hotel is absolutely spotlessly clean and the staff work so hard to keep it like that. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, smiling faces keep the guests spirits high. The rooms are very nice and the bathrooms very modern, our towels were changed and the rooms cleaned through daily. The hotel pool was very nice, the pool area being a real sun trap all day long. The hotel has a pool bar which has a good selection of alcohol and hot/cold drinks. There is a gyros bar and pizza oven poolside serving delicious snacks made up freshly for you. The food offered by the hotel is freshly cooked and plentiful, something for everyone, you would not go hungry at Hotel Marathon! There is a small play area for children and a few games near to the pool, air hockey and such like. There is also a gym room. This hotel doesn't charge five star prices but the staff and there efforts are all five star! The hotel manager Mr Vasilis is a real nice guy and is always around chatting with guests and at meal times he's eating in the restaurant! The hotel is right in the centre of the shops and bars, but is really quiet and peaceful. The bus stop for Rodos, Lindos, Tsambiki beach is just 30 metres down the road. The two Kolymbia beaches are at most ten minutes walk away. We had a great time and as far as I could see so we're all the other guests. I wouldn't hesitate to return and would recommend Marathon to anyone wanting a nice relaxing break.

Myself and my friend booked a last minute holiday to Rhodes and chose Marathon Hotel based on the reviews. We had a really nice stay at the Marathon Hotel. The staff were amazing, so friendly and helpful. Great pool area and the gyros and pizza snack bars were brilliant throughout the day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner options were fine - good variety of salads which were really nice! Location in Kolymbia is perfect, right next to supermarket and tourist shops as well as really good bus transport links to Rodos, Lindos, and Tsampika Beach. Our room and the hotel in general is incredibly clean and well kept, we had clean sheets and towels daily. Overall, a great value clean hotel with friendly staff!

Our stay at marathon hotel was exceptional, all the staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. Especially the manager who went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our time at the marathon hotel. The food was excellent lots of choice and varying options throughout the week . Drinks were also very good a choice of cocktails, various spirits and good beer.The hotel is in a nice area a short walk away from the beach with many nice bars and restaurants nearby. I would definitely recommend the marathon hotel.

We booked a room for a week for an incredibly low price. All-inclusive, too! The room was absolutely clean, 10 out of 10! Fresh sheets every day. Since we were making day trips we didn't stay a lot at the hotel, but without doubt you wouldn't be disappointed as there is a large pool and a well-equipped bar. The food (buffet) was good, not exquisite, just good. Varied and fresh, and never an empty tray... Only when you wish to crash early you may need ear plugs, as the music in the bar in the evening can be pretty loud (though it stops at 23.00h). Staff is very friendly. For this price an absolute top hotel, highly recommended.

Just wanted to write a quick review after a brilliant week in the Hotel Marathon. We had a really good time, the staff and manager Vasilis work really hard to ensure everything is perfect. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are excellent and friendly. All inclusive is great giving plenty of flexibility and there is a lot of choice food wise without being too samey. It's all of a very high standard and the gyros snack bar is brilliant. Drinks wise it would be nice to have some branded spirits and soft drinks on offer and some glasses not plastic at the bar but they are really small items to pick out in what is an altogether great spot especially at this price point.

Great location, family getaway at midterm. Spotless clean, and the good was very good. The highlight is the amount of food my son, 13 & coeliac, could enjoy! Grilled meats, rice dishes, fish, salads, ice reams etc. The car rental in the foyer is a must. €40 for a 7 seater and we explored the island. The gift shops provided endless shopping for our kids! Thank you to the amazing staff and a special mention has to go to Vasilis for his professional attentiveness to each detail. Enjoy the rest period over the winter.

I returned from a relaxing holiday at this hotel and I must say that it was a great holiday. From the first contact with this hotel and the meetings of both the management and other staff, I was satisfied. We had a double room with a balcony. The room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable bed, which is very important to me. Cleaning every day, change of towels. As for the choice of food and drinks all inclusive, I know what to expect in Greece, so I was satisfied with the choice. Even when meals are repeated, I always choose what I like, including sweets and fruit. If I don't like something, I don't eat it. Same with drinks. In the hotel restaurant, follow the rules of COVID-19 by wearing masks and gloves when choosing food and drinks. The pool was clean, plenty of sunbeds around enough. The price corresponded to the services provided. Once again, I would like to highlight the behavior and care of the hotel manager, who always greeted everyone, asked how he was doing, and if someone had a problem, he solved it right away, so I imagine the management. In the end, everyone has the kind of vacation they want to take, and mine was great.
