“Good hotel in a great location , everything you need for a girly holiday”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

stayed at the Marios this month for a week. We was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel as we wasnt expecting a lot and it was really clean and great for the price we paid. It's also in a really good location and everything is on your door step. It was our first club 1830 holiday and we had Liam and deena as our reps who were so helpful and made our holiday a much better one, it was although they was just our friends which was really cool. Overall I would definitely return and recommend staying at the Mario's and getting involved in the club 1830 events.

3 friends and I stayed here at the beginning of august. The hotel is in a good location and I can't fault the cleanliness of the rooms nor of the reception / pool area.

we arrived at our hotel around 6am and after checking in we all wanted to head to bed as we had been travelling through the night. This didn't seem to stop the 18-30s rep, Liam, from hammering on our door to try and sell us the overpriced 170 euro party package. He eventually caught up with us in the morning and when we decided to only do one of the events on the list his attitude went from being enthusiastic and upbeat, to being miserable and moody towards us.

A few days later another rep had turned up to the hotel, Called Deanna, the first of of her many rude remarks towards my friends and I was: 'what are you even doing here?'. I'm not being funny, but I don't see how that sort of comment was going to help us in making a positive decision on partaking in their 'Big Reunion' weekender in November, that both Liam and Deanna dragged us up into our hotel rooms for in the middle of the day, to try and sell us. after politely saying no, we were then given the same bad attitude as we had already seen a few days earlier with Liam.

I know it's their job to sell us these things, but perhaps Thomas Cook should look to employ people who have better 'people skills' and better understanding that not everyone will want to do what the reps want them to do and not want to plan their holiday from start to finish.

The hotel staff we're less than helpful, and that's only when you could find them. 9 times out of 10 the counter and bar in the reception was deserted. When I asked the hotel staff for something or for help I felt as though I was bothering them. I find the fact that the hotel owns a supermarket directly opposite, but you can't take food and / or water bought from there around to the hotel's pool area, a bit strange.

A few shops down from the supermarket was 'The Island' restaurant. Without doubt the best place to eat in Laganas. 15 euros for 3 courses and free drinks! The food is brilliant, and the staff we're so friendly and welcoming, can't praise the place enough.

All in all the room was perfect for our needs its just a shame that the decent hotel and nice room came with the Ignorant and rude reps and useless staff.

The hotel was ok; clean rooms, good location etc

We arrived at 5am and shortly after getting to our room Liam, the rep, was waking us up trying to sell the 18-30 party package for 170 euros. We told him to come back in the morning where he spent 45 mins trying to convince us. After telling him we were not interested, his mood completely changed and he was rude for the rest of the holiday.

Later in the week we received a "secret" message under the door from Liam and Deana asking for a private meeting and not to tell anyone. Turns out all they wanted was to sell us another event and tried to make it sound exclusive with a private meeting. Again they were rude when we politely declined. Not sure why as they are "apparently" not on commission!?

Apart from the two discourteous reps we had a great holiday. I would recommend the restaurant opposite "The Island" for food.

Four of us went to Marios in July and it was amazing for a girls holiday. The hotel was basic but it had everything we needed. The reps were amazing especially Deanah! They looked after us the whole time we were there and sorted the events out that we wanted to go to. The hotel staff are easy to get on with and make sure you have a good time, especially Eddie. If you go to Marios then Deanah, Liam and Gabby will make sure you have the best holiday and tell you where is good to go. Had the best holiday ever and I would stay here again if I went back to Zante! Everything you need for a girls holiday, full of young people having a good time :)

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor facing 4play bar so always had good music to get ready too.

Stayed at Marios for a week. Hotel was clean enough, staff were nice. Thomas Cook rep was a disgrace. She never introduced herself, never around if you needed to speak with her, always with the male groups when she was at the hotel. When I finally spoke to her on the last day to find out coach time, she rudely pointed round the corner and told me 'check on the board'.

If you like sleep then this isn't a place for you. Even though the hotel has a bar, we didn't hear the music from this. The other guests however were running up and down the stairs, in and out of each others rooms, banging on doors, playing music, smashing bottles. They were some reviews about things being taken from rooms and blaming maids, but we never had anything taken and if they closed their doors instead of having every Tom, Dick, or Harry in and out im sure you will find all your stuff will be safe.

Pool area is very clean. Quiet times are up to about 2ish, as everyone still sleeping from the nights out.

The strip in which the hotel is situated on is better than the main strip. Cheaper drinks, nice restaurants & nicer atmosphere.

Room Tip: Doesn't really matter which floor you choose, the other guests decide when it will be quiet for...

Stayed at Marios for 1 week with 18-30's and can say it was easily the best 18-30's I've been on. The hotel is basic but has everything you need and is in a great location for the strip. Demi at the hotel snack bar is a lovely girl and works sooo hard all day long. Our rep was Deanah and she was literally amazing. Such a genuine and nice girl, didnt feel pressured into any events but still got all of them and had a ridiculously good time on them all! Deanah was always around if you needed any advice or info, but she chilled as well so which is nice. Liam was away at the time but I heard from other people he was lovely as well. Hotel has really good drinks deals before you go out so would recommend pre-drinking at the hotel bar. Would definitely recommend the 18-30's events offered as well! Overall had an amazing time and can't wait for the reunion in November! Xxxx

I stayed at the Marios Studios two weeks ago and I can say that it is a good hotel. Zante is amazing and was our first real group holiday. We were a mixed group if boys and girls so we were concerned about if Zante would be for all of us- but by far it was amazing!! The hotel is clean and the location is great as your not to far from the main strip but far enough to get a good nights rest (if you want one). Clubs Linkers, Waikiki, Rescues , Cheeky Tikis are amongst some of the best on the Island. We stayed for two weeks on a Club18-30 holiday and hands down the best part of out holiday were the genuine, kind and honest reps at the Marios. Our reps Liam and Deanah are so sound! The packages they offered are such good VALUE for money as when you go out on your own on the strip things are more expensive then you would first think. The reps were not pushy or forceful but made us feel in charge and so comfortable all the time. They are always around the hotel and pool area in case you ever need anything but still give you enough space to enjoy your holiday at your own leisure. When you meet the Marios reps you will see for yourself how great they are (irrespective if you get packages or not). The people who argue the packages are not worth it and don't want to talk to the reps tend to be more isolated and don't really get involved in the banter and fun of the holiday. In regards to the reps they are nothing more than friendly to the point you forget they are reps at all- Deanah and Liam were and are the best reps ever and if you ever go to the Marios Studios look out for them- they will make sure you have the BEST holiday!!!
