The hotel was spoless and the overall service was very good. The bar people George and Tasos were excellent. The only down side was that the food was a bit repetitive and not as hot as I like it. We did meet a lot of very friendly and interesting people from all over Europe. The weather for the time of...

Having read the reviews "after" booking a budget holiday I was absolutely gobsmacked to find the reviews very negative when in fact I have nothing but positive things to say about this place. The location was great, 5 min walk to the beach which was uphill coming back. The beach was clean and tidy with sunbeds available. There are plenty...

We stayed here for two weeks, its a three star hotel and is reasonably priced. The location is good, you are right in the village so there is a choice of bars and restuarants nearby. The beach is a ten minute walk. We preferred the one on the far right with the restaurant. The food in the hotel was ok...

Booked a last minute holiday on a budget and this place was great. Close to a few bars restaurants and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Rooms were fairly big and clean, beds were a bit hard but comfy enough. A few people on here had complained about the food - okay there wasn't as much variety as other...

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
