Just returned from the Marathon Hotel.
Good points :
Friendly staff and reasonable room size
Bad points :
Very poor food, both in choice and quality which was rarely warm let alone hot.
My son who enjoys Pasta was nearly threw up at one meal as the sauce tasted as though it had been cooked in fish stock.
Very hard to get a sunbed round the pool (the only place there were any available) due to very high amount of non British holiday makers leaving towels down overnight, making it almost impossible to get a sunbed.
British tourists in the minority, mainly German, or Eastern block nationalities who on the whole were very rude and clearly did not know what queuing up meant.
All inclusive bar, very strict rule on no more than 2 drinks per person when queuing up, which resulted in very long queues and a guillotine in the evening at 10.45, even if you had been queuing for ages , you are turned away if not being served by 10.45 pm.
A lot of loud noise in the late evening from surrounding bars and hotels.
I would not recommend this Hotel, there are far better hotels within a 15 minute drive (closer to the Airport) as you will see by my other reviews
- 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. There are also plenty of shops, cafes and traditional taverns surrounding the hotel, if you can pull yourself away from the pool. Guests who rent a car can easily access Rhodes and Lindos, which are less than 15 miles away. ... more less
