The beach is a ten minute walk. We preferred the one on the far right with the restaurant. The food in the hotel was ok...

Booked a last minute holiday on a budget and this place was great. Close to a few bars restaurants and a 5 minute walk from the beach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated just 380 yards from the beach, Marathon offers all-inclusive accommodations with activities for children and a great pool scene, close to Kolymbia’s local attractions. Marathon provides spacious and comfortable rooms, equipped with modern comforts. Children will be kept entertained with toys and games in their indoor play area and separate kid’s pool. Guests can relax on one of the many lounge chairs surrounding the large outdoor pool and soak up the Mediterranean sun. The all-inclusive package allows guests to enjoy the convenience and choice of buffet-style meals on-site. During the evening, the bar is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink.
