Reviewed yesterday NEW

Ideal hotel for families - facilities for children absolutely excellent. Food - very good variety and every meal was excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful if they had tried. Only a couple of minutes from the beach which was not over crowded. A few minutes walk from the nearest supermarket if needed.

This hotel is great for the little ones and cannot fault the hsrd work the TC reps put in to keep everyone entertained. We stayed B&B and unfortunately we didnt enjoy the breakfast that was pretty basic and there wasnt a lot of choice for our little boy. Snack bar great as were the pools and playground. All in all...

Just got back from Zante / The Marelen hotel. We had previously seen excellent reviews of this hotel and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located near the beach and a short walk to all the shops and bars. The hotel is amazing, large airy rooms, fresh towels every day & bedding changed twice in a week. The hotel...

Where to begin..... I am a very well travelled, fussy travel agent(not for Thomas cook) and I booked this hotel on a recommendation from a friend! It did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived and were greeted with drinks & a friendly welcome from Theresa and then Danielle showing us to our room I was pleased we picked the...

Thank you so much for your positive and informative review of your recent stay at the Marelen. It is always great to hear from travel agents that their stay was such a happy one, and we are glad that you were pleased with our new superior rooms.

Hotel very clean and friendly. Enjoyed the adults only pool. Not sure if I'd like to be on complex at high season. Pools were very nice and food was exceptional. I did think the shower cubicles were quite small especially for the larger person. Definitely would recommend and go low season

Thank you for your review, and your positive comments on our facilities and especially our food. We have only a few rooms with shower cubicles, that can be on the small side for the larger person, so it was fortunate that we had another room for you to move to straight away. All the other rooms either have walk-in shower...
