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...

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...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I would like to clarify a few things after checking our records and logs - The room you were given was the hotel room that came through on your booking with your tour operator. There were no requests for a low floor, you would see this if you checked your...

Whole experience was a complete nightmare. Emailed in advance to Thomas Cook and the hotel directly to request as ground floor room due to travelling with two small children but was placed on second floor meaning carrying double buggy and the kids up and down during the course of the two weeks we was away. Spoke with reception and even...

Thank you for sharing your opinions on Trip advisor of your holiday.

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...

Rooms and area clean. Pool areas great. Breakfast food very poor quality and repetitive. Great menu for the pool bar. Prompt service during the day. Unengaged reception staff (sometimes rude) Super value for money paid via Thomas Cook. Abbie and Danni were both incredible employed by Thomas Cook who our little girl Imogen adored. <3 Interacted well with our little...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay earlier in October. I would be interested in hearing further comments regarding what else we can offer for our breakfast buffet to avoid it being repetitive (as we have at least 48 different things on offer) and also regarding the reception staff. Please email us with any...

Overall we were happy with the hotel - basic but clean and comfortable. It's got a great position near the beach in a quiet street off the pot-holed main road. Breakfast was bountiful and any other snacks, drinks or nic-nacs required were with reach throughout the day / early evening. As many have mentioned the staff are all helpful and...

Thank you for your lovely comments on the Marelen hotel, our location, breakfast/food/drinks, staff and cleanliness. I'm so sorry about the weather and that many things were closed the last couple of days of your holiday, but as you state these things are not something the hotel has control over. Please let us know if you rebook again for the...

We paid £400 through Thomas Cook with flights to stay here for one week. It was their cheapest holiday but I felt it was overpriced - perhaps more Thomas Cook's fault than Marelen Hotel. Of course, to get 5 star you have to pay 5 star prices, but the rooms are SO small and basic and the breakfast really wasn't...

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts of your holiday at the Marelen. The price of your holiday is determined by your tour operator, and as it was school holiday it's probably why it was more expensive, but I'm sorry if you didn't feel it was value for money. As you say if you want 5 star...

We came for a couple of weeks and really liked it here. It's got just about everything you could want from a hotel. It's clean and friendly, has good amenities and is close to the beach and the main strip for bars and restaurants. If you want a holiday by the beach and pool, you'll do no better than here....
