I had a very nice and relaxing holiday. Marathon hotel fulfilled all my needs and even more.

Cozy and clean hotel with a nice pool and pool bar. Food is fresh, with big variety and very tasty, choice including typical Greek dishes, what I absolutely love.

Restaurants, shops and beaches close, just little walk.

Staff very helpful, friendly and always smiling, even working for long hours and having to deal with all different kind of people. I felt really welcome and that they were happy having me there.

THANK YOU ALL for this excellent experience and I will definitely stay in your hotel again on my next visit to Rhodes !!!

Everything was just perfect !!! :)

Ευχαριστώ :)

Just got back from a week at this hotel. Was bit worried about all the bad reviews but was very happy we chose this place
Right in the middle of the main part. Bars restaurants and shops next door. Beach about 10 minute walk. Beach to right alot nicer than left. Bus stop right outside goes all over the island for €3.50 each.
Hotel is clean and friendly. Food was nice and edible. Choice of fish meat and 2 pasta. Salad bar potato rice breads. Can't fault.
It's 3 star hotel and your paying 3 star prices. Don't expect 5 star cos you won't get it.
Nice clean basic would defo come again for cheap week away !!

Beautiful holiday in a quieter " family " hotel with friendly staff , excellent food and beautiful beaches to choose from. We were just a bunch of three families .

We spent 14 days relaxing on a beautiful September weather, more wind blew only three days . Kolymbia , offering the possibility of seamless travel in virtually all parts of the island .

The hotel staff thank you for the kindness and willingness of a perfectly nice behavior as well as our 3 year old girl. On this holiday we will always remember with joy and recommend it to our friends.

Accommodation match the reported 3 * - ie. less simple, but functionally equipped rooms with nice bathrooms equipped with hairdryer and bath, small refrigerator , TV , telephone. Balcony overlooking the garden and east of the rooms to the pool. Safe for a fee at the reception and wifi we used daily , the router was at the reception, but reached up to the pool bar. wifi from connecting at any time and without hassle.

Room facilities suited us quite a match three stars. Above standard or luxury accommodation we not look at the holiday is important for us around - the beach , outdoor opportunities and the quality of food and cleanliness of the room.

The room calm - we asked quiet room and were heard. We were staying in one of the rooms on the ground floor , there was peace , little came the music of a local firm with live music, but it was in the evening sitting on the balcony uniquely enjoyable. Baby Monitor We stood at the bar .. :-) So that was the biggest positive .

I do not understand one another are referred to reviews that were mixed feelings about the food . In this hotel we spent 11 days and during this time we have not a single day nenatrefili the food that we tasted downright contrary. Breakfast - every day like a rich choice ( sausage - renewal of several kinds , cheese , butter , margarine, eggs in several ways , sausages , muesli , balls , milk, yogurt , cake and other sweets , fruit , coffee, chocolate , tea , juices Lunch ... - great choice . always several kinds of salads , several types of attachments, always several kinds of meat ( early output was little other choice than as an hour continuously supplemented with something else , depending on how the food in the kitchen completed etc. . ) fruit - mostly melons, peaches and wine . desserts always - colored jelly , cakes , most of them absolutely unbeatable taste. dinner - soup , again a wide selection of dishes , all very tasty again , again a choice of salads - have come to us well flavored and turns to several types of meat. several times for dinner was staying focused on Greek food, etc. .

Free drink at the bar , including a relatively wide selection of mixed alcoholic beverages ( very good).

Operating mostly understand Czech , which we found to be pleasant . Service in the dining room , bar and reception very friendly , helpful , and even for queries that are totally not related to the hotel itself . At the reception we said in broken English , but after a few days we found out that i speak Czech . :-D

Daily room cleaning - wiping or sweeping floors, cleaning bathrooms , ready . towels replaced. The clean room . When the daughter was asleep , we had a do not disturb sign on the door and the maid came later.

Guests - mostly Czechs, Slovaks and Russians . often families with children.

Possibility of swimming a choice of several beaches. The beaches are really away just a bit. A peaceful walk (is 2letým child ) I think within 5 minutes. Maintained and clean . Possibility of renting chairs (8 Euro per umbrella with two chairs) and stay with their own umbrella or without it. When diving with the naked eye and small fish in the shallows , diving a little bigger.

Otherwise, Kolymbia is the possibility of beautiful walks along the " peninsula " ( protrusions into the sea ) , where the number of beautiful views of the sea and the beaches and grazed there freely and goats . A morning sunrise over the sea well worth it. After Kolymbia go train - 3,5 euro a person .

Very nice relaxing holiday in the beautiful resort of Kolymbia and miles at Marathon with all aspects excellent service. We can definitely recommend it to all who want to spend a perfect holiday at a reasonable price and do not require 5 ***** and waiters in tuxedos. We go to Greece often, so what we have to compare.

Quality hotel accommodation appropriate to the category. We were staying on the first floor, which we believe is the best location. The entrance to the room from the outside walkway on the south side (facing the pool and bar) on which the sun beat down and partly shadowed incredibly huge beautiful Bouganvillia rising up to the roof.

The bathroom , which many criticized in reviews, we felt sufficiently large and fully compliant , water is always warm ( of course, the temperature fluctuated depending on the time of day , which is due to the solar DHW understandable ) and in sufficient quantity, we can never happen that would not flow.

The All Inclusive suits us because we choose only what our tastes, and the amount that we eat . We consider it very inappropriate behavior of some tourists who obviously are not able to estimate the capacity of their stomachs and leave food on the tables of the mountain, which, unfortunately, throws. Lunch and dinner were mainly composed of typical Greek dishes, which suits us, we did not come to Greece for the dumplings and pulp.....Fully to our satisfaction were the drinks - non-alcoholic, that different kinds of sodas, juices and water, as well as alcoholic Very good beer Mythos, as well as tasty (and quite strong) wine (red and white).

Excellent service from all staff - thanks for all. In the hotel work people from Czech, Slovak, Poland, Greece and we do not know from which other countries. It was nice for us, cause we could choose the language in which we know how to communicate!

We chose this hotel for our honeymoon in late September and we were very satisfied. It is a three-star hotel, so don't expect much luxury. It is friendly though with good (and a lot of) food. Sometimes we didn't like the meals and we just ate a Greek salad and Tzaziki (always available). With all inclusive you get free drinks at the pool bar and wonderful ice-cream between 3-5 p.m. Kolimpia is situated between towns of Lindos and Rhodes, which are totally worth seeing! Use the buses (3,5 € for a ride) and take things for swimming - especially Lindos bay was great :)

Room Tip: We stayed at number 200 house and we heard music from the pool bar and also from a neighbouring bar...
