I returned from a relaxing holiday at this hotel and I must say that it was a great holiday. From the first contact with this hotel and the meetings of both the management and other staff, I was satisfied. We had a double room with a balcony. The room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable bed, which is very important to me. Cleaning every day, change of towels. As for the choice of food and drinks all inclusive, I know what to expect in Greece, so I was satisfied with the choice. Even when meals are repeated, I always choose what I like, including sweets and fruit. If I don't like something, I don't eat it. Same with drinks. In the hotel restaurant, follow the rules of COVID-19 by wearing masks and gloves when choosing food and drinks. The pool was clean, plenty of sunbeds around enough. The price corresponded to the services provided. Once again, I would like to highlight the behavior and care of the hotel manager, who always greeted everyone, asked how he was doing, and if someone had a problem, he solved it right away, so I imagine the management. In the end, everyone has the kind of vacation they want to take, and mine was great.

Hotel is lovely and friendly, we arrived just before lunch ending and the manger checked to see if we wanted anything which I thought was thoughtful. The rooms very tidy and clean. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating. Loved every minute there.

This was my second time visiting Marathon Hotel. I first visited with a friend in August 2020 for a lovely relaxed break during the Pandemic. I had such a wonderful time, that when my family were suggesting we go somewhere in August 2021, I had no hesitation recommending the place. The pool is large, clean and a wonderfully refreshing dip from the Greek Sun. The Food is excellent, with a wide range of choices at Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. It's a little awkward getting the gloves on and off but a small price to pay given the times we live in. Of course, if you don't fancy lunch then you can get Gyro's, Pizza and Hotdogs throughout the day from the outdoor catering stand. I certainly took full advantage of that one! The bar is similarly well stocked with a wide range of drinks included on the all inclusive, and then cocktails in the evening. These were the perfect addition to our family games of Uno and the live music and dancing that were on twice a week. Something for everyone. The hotel itself was very clean, the rooms were spacious and modern and the shower/bathtubs good. The staff cleaned promptly and well. The location is excellent. Within walking distance to multiple beaches and not a long ride from the airport. Additionally the bus stop that takes you to Rhodes old town and Lindos is just across the road. There are also bars and shops around the hotel. The Butterflies walk is a little further outfield, but you can either get a bus from Rhodos, hire a car from the foyer or simply ask the excellent manger who will sort transport for you (As he did for us!). On the Subject of Vasilis, it is clear that part of the reason that Marathon enjoys such an excellent reputation. is him. He is polite, welcoming and exceptionally friendly. Nothing was too much hassle for him or his staff and it contributed to a wonderful stay. When my mother (Who has mobility issues) was unable to cope with the stairs to the second floor, he arranged for her to be moved to a ground floor room, with no hassle. He arranged the aforementioned trip to the butterflies and remembered me from my previous stay. When one of the guests we had made friends with, but not exchanged contact details with, emailed the hotel to see if they could find us, he personally printed and delivered the message so that we could be in touch. More than this, he without fail came over to our table at dinner to say hello and ask about our day. It is little touches like that which made us feel welcome. He really is an excellent manager and can take pride in his work. All in all, we had a brilliant stay. The location was great, the facilities and the rooms were excellent and the staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were looked after. Would definitely recommend and i'm sure will go back before long!

The hotel is in an ideal location. Close to a number of shops, bars and restaurants that come alive at night. There's a couple of beaches close by, around 10 minute walk. The sandy beach also has a harbour where you can book boat trips direct. The bus stop 2 mins from the hotel can take you to Rhodes town and other beaches (€2.20 - €3.90) The hotel itself, pros: - Very clean - Staff are friendly - Good size swimming pool - Food is great, lots of variety throughout the week - Pool cafe has great gyros and snacks throughout the day - Has a pool table (€1), table tennis and air hockey table (€1) - Pretty good Wifi connection throughout the hotel - Entertainment a couple of nights a week - Car park space if you decide to rent a car Cons: - It does feel compact - The rooms in particular the ensuite is tight
