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.... More

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... More

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... More

We booked this holiday at the last minute having never been to Zante before so we're not sure what to expect. I had some worries not knowing what the food was going to be like as we did the same last year and went to Malta which was a big mistake. We had a lovely time on Zante. The Marelen... More

The hotel was clean and the room was tidy, however we were given a room that we didn't pay for. When questioned the reply was 'well there is only three of you'. I asked for a low floor as I have trouble with stairs and was put on the third floor with no lift. When questioned I was told 'there's... More

We've been to The Maralen a few times now and it is the friendliest place we've ever been. The staff always speak with a smile on their faces and are always ready to help. The food is very good and the bar is well stocked, well ran and can become party central on the right night. The bar manager is... More
