This village-style hotel complex is all about the water, with a choice of pools and only footsteps from the sea.
The Marmari Palace ticks off 3 restaurants, 4 tennis courts and 6 bars. But the pools – all 5,000 square metres of them – are the real stars of the show.
There’s a stretch of sand on the doorstep, complete with its own beach bar. A regular bus stops just 50 metres away – it takes 25 minutes to get to Kos Town, the island capital.

family holiday after kids exams .So glad we booked to come here. Late arrival but no problem food if we wanted and bags taken to room by buggy. We had lovely rooms by lower pool near beach. very comfortable , clean and well equipped. as our 25th anniversary had bottle of bubbly and decorated bed nice touch. One of reasons for choosing hotel was due to being kitesurf spot. This was easy to just pop to kite centre next to hotel and my husband and son got out a few times. The food is excellent - you could eat very healthy or indulgent numerous choices. We chose to eat at the beach cafÃ© for lunch most days as they had best tatziki and smaller selection so not so much dilemma! All the staff are fantastic , friendly and efficient . Loved the entertainment team especially jonathen - did the water aerobics and zumba and he made such fun . The evening shows were also good. Thought the entertainment team made a lot of effort with all guests particularly single travellers and people who maybe needed more attention. They all seemed very genuine. Would love to return to this hotel and would not hesitate to recommend . Thankyou for a lovely stay.More
So yeah the TUI MAGIC LIFE MARMARI PALACEâ¦â¦.. We decided to have a weekâs family holiday booking last minute and came across this place. Booked through Thompson at what I thought was a great price. We arrived on 21st June 2016 staying for a week. We arrived at 00:45 am and was welcomed off the coach by a porter who took our bags straight away and placed them to one side. We went to check in and was informed that there was food for us and the bar was open 24 hours so we could have a drink. This was a good touch after traveling for 8 to 10 hours both were needed. Our party consisted of six adults and one child of six months. We checked in then off to our room. Our bags and we were taken to our room on a golf buggy as it wasnât in the main room but was still only about 200 meters away. Our room which I believe was a superior double had a very comfortable emperor bed, another single bed and the normal tables and chairs. This was our honeymoon and they had put towel swans and flowers on the bed along with a bottle of champagne, a bottle of red and a fruit basket which was a nice touch. There was a mini fridge that had some drinks and bottled water in which again was nice. All in all the room was great. I couldnât fault it! I have stayed in 5 star resorts and this room was better than that. So onto the food. Breakfast was GREAT. Everything you could ask for and more. Full English (all be it a Greek version) and continental. Lunch there was many choices both full on munch or a lighter options. Not to mention you can eat by the pool which is a Gyros and potato bar and down by the sea which is another restaurant. Dinner was also GREAT! Each night was full of great tasting food from seafood to meat to fruit to desserts. This place had the best food from any All Inclusive that I have ever been to! It was tasty and plentiful! At the hotel and what I think was the best characteristic was a large number of warm and clean pools. This really is the gift that keeps on giving. Off the top of my head I think there is 11 pools including great ones for kids a pool that is used just for swimming lengths (fitness style). There is a swim up bar which you can use from 10 am till 7 at night while the pools are open (yeah I knowâ¦â¦ right!!!!! You can swim and have a few cooling beers or cocktails without even getting out). You do have to fight ZE GERMANS a little for sunbeds as they do the normal towels on the sunbeds trick but as I had a six month child I was up way before them and could beat them to it. I didnât like doing this as it goes against what I know but itâs always good to beat the Germans right!!!!!! (German people donât get upset. You love to beat us soppy English people too) and if you didnât it was hard to find one in a desirable area. There is a full on activity plan that you can join is if you want. I didnât due to being lazy and just wanting to lie in the sun, swim with my daughter or drink beers in the sun. The beach is attractive and is full on sandy. A bar close by that serves food and a swimming area cordoned off to keep us all safe! I didnât spend much time here as my room was the other end of the hotel and the pools were so great. The staff are all amazing. I mean it AMAZING. They could not do enough for you and always wanted to make sure that every service they provided was to the best standard. Whether that was in cleaning the rooms, clearing away from dinner or pouring you a beer. It was so refreshing to see these people doing their jobs to such a high standard and I genuinely canât give them enough praise for that! They all interacted with the kids that were there including ours which made it a great experience. The WIFI isnât the best but works well enough to do what you want if your patient. The kids club stuff seemed to be in the German language but I am sure there would have been English if there was any English kids there. (mostly German while we were there but lots of English arrived at the end of our holiday). The evening entertainment was good and I loved how all the dancers and staff joined in the disco after. Another great touch! So all in all I score this place 5 stars but if I could give it 10 I would. I have never come away from an all inclusive saying I would go back. Not because they are bad but because I like to go to a different place every time for that little bit of adventure. BUT I can safely say that I will go here again any time! If you decide this is your destination then I would recommend taking mosquito repellent and after bite cream. They are like pterodactyls!More
I love the unique style, the magic moments and the most important thing they grow their own vegetables and is all about making the family feel special and comfortable at all times, massive congratulations to the staff for working really hard to have outstanding service.Well done xMore

This was our first team at Magic Life Marmari Palace having visited many Magic Life hotels before. Having not been able to go to Tunisia due to the restrictions on UK travellers we had no hesitation to look at booking another Magic Life. We came to Kos with high expectations and I will be honest......They certainly were exceeded! Food was again fantastic and throughout our 2 week stay we never got bored of it. The theme nights once again are brilliant and help break the weeks up with focused foods. The two additional restaurants were fantastic! My personal favourite was the Greek one on the beach were you could also watch the sun set whilst enjoying your meal. The Entertainment team were once again amazing and truly made our holiday. From day to day activities to the evening shows and dancing after they made every effort to make people's holiday a special one. Special shout out to Paula for the many laughs at shuffleboard, boccia and darts! The hotel was very clean as well as all surrounding areas. Nothing was too much and all staff were very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. Again, thanks for an amazing holiday and anyone thinking about here or any other Magic Life hotels I would highly recommend. Matthew, Susan & StephenMore
