I have stayed at the Marina Hotel now 5 times and absolutely love the place. Each time I go I love it even more. The all inclusive package is value for money. It is definitely a proper all inclusive with all meals, drinks (including water) and snacks part of the package. Sunbeds on the beach and by the pool are also part of the package. In the dining room if you ask for a red and a white wine they will bring you a bottle of each. The staff at the hotel are lovely and helpful. The bar is still all inclusive up to 1 a.m. instead of the usual 11 p.m. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms cleaned every day and towels changed every day. The Marina hotel is undergoing refurbishment but not during the summer. Both of the hotel blocks have been refurbished in the last 2 years as has the poolside bar at the main pool, the outdoor restaurant, reception and bar. I believe that the bungalows are next in line for refurbishment. The waiters have a fantastic sense of humour and have become our friends. The Italian animation team are really good fun - do some silly things but are a good laugh. I will go back again and again. The town of Gouves is about a 10 minute walk away. The first thing you see as you walk up the street towards the town is the Irish bar which is a brilliant place to visit. George the owner is a lovely man and goes out of his way to please. There is a brilliant chinese at the top of the stretch - very reasonable and well worth a visit. The main town isn't very big compared to some resorts and is full mainly of bars and gift shops. It is much cheaper in Gouves than Stalis or Hersonnisos.
