Thank you for taking the time to write your review.
We are sorry that things in the resort of Kalamaki were starting to close when you were here, but glad you found plenty to do in Zante Town.
We hope you will return to us again in the future.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in October 2016. Clean , tidy and the staff bent over backwards to look after all the guests. Wendy was exceptional and seemed to work 24/7.
She always had a smile & is the epitome of excellent customer service and I suggest anyone who thinks otherwise is one of these people who are never happy.
All the staff were excellent from reception to housemaids.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or to recommend the hotel to anyone who is looking for value for money.

Quite fussy when it comes to picking hotels that cater to all our needs but picked a winner with this one. Excellent location so close to the beach and quick bus trip to main town. Pools and night time entertainment we're perfect for the children. Hotel was very clean and staff very friendly. We will be staying here again for sure

Holidayed 6th - 13th October 2016 at the Marelen and was impressed. 100 yards from the beach and 5 minutes walk from the main drag. We went self catering, facilities were good in the room and they were kept clean , didn't need the aircon this late on in the season. The two English girls were very helpful and arranged our private transfer back to the airport, which turned out to be a godsend as she had to speak Greek to the taxi firm who had our names spelled incorrectly. Good food in the poolside bar, and not expensive. There are 3 pools, a kiddies pool with waterslides etc, an adults only pools with comfy padded sun loungers, and a main family pool with a toddlers paddling pool. one puzzling thing was the family pool had a deep end so you need to be a swimmer and kids would need armbands if non swimmer. Hotel bar was good value with prices not much dearer than the resort. The grounds were lovely with some interesting topiary. There was entertainment on at night , the entertainment staff seemed to be at the hotel quite a bit during the day as well , we didn't notice any noise to keep you awake .

We have stayed at the Marelen twice previously and when travelling with my partner and his daughter in the first week of June we tried to book here first but couldn't get in so stayed at a hotel up the road.
Just wanted to say that we really missed being at the Marelen this year as it is like a home from home to us.
We popped in a few times to say hi to Theresa and Vaso and to have a look at the new adults only pool (which looks amazing by the way) and we also called in one evening to have a drink with Nick at the bar.
As past guests we were made so welcome on these visits and it was so nice to see everyone.
In our opinion this is the nicest and friendliest hotel in Kalamaki and dates allowing it is the first and only hotel we want to book with.
Always clean, helpful, friendly and incredibly welcoming, the Marelen is a proper family run hotel and we hope to return next year.
