We didn't read the reviews on the Marathon Hotel before booking and I am so glad that we didn't as if we had we may not have booked...... We stayed at the Marathon for 1 week from the 8th August 2012 we had a family suite which was a great size for myself Husband and two Children 13 and 10 year olds. (as the children had a twin bedded area off the main room. The food at the hotel was very good, breakfast had a very good choice be it a cooked breakfast, sausage,bacon eggs mushrooms etc or there was a continental selection, cereals and warm croissants, pan au chocolate, and really delicious raison whirls. lunch was choice of salads, and warm dishes, with breads (all self serve) dinner was again very much the same as lunch (one hint if you see a pudding you like the look of take when getting main course as run out very quickly) also we found that the meals are much nicer if you start with a salad and then get a warm main course. Self serve drinks during meals Red / White wine beer, coke, fanta, soda, water, One area they could improve is having more staff on the bar in the eveing as you can wait for a drink for a while (especially when it gets near to 10.45 when the all inclusive runs out) in the afternoon there are icecreams from the bar from 3 -5pm these are served in tubs and are really worth waiting for...... also there are not enough seats outside in the eveing by the bar. there are a lot of broken sun beds by the poole but most are useable. also we really liked this the poole is very deep and there is only a small area shallow enough to stand in (there is a separate area for children. The location of the hotel is great for the beach and buses if you want a day out. We went to Lindos one day and fell in love with it. Great holiday and we can't wait for another holiday.
