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.

We spent a week in this hotel and had a blast. Everything is amazing and beautiful. The numerous pools are great, the food is very good, the room is comfy... We enjoyed playing tennis almost everyday and learning archery. We traveled around the island and also visited Nisiros and its volcano. We easily went tu Kos City on our own by bus. We are thinking about coming back to this hotel next summer. The only drawback were the mosquitos... Superbe semaine passÃ©e dans cet hotel, Ã profiter des nombreuses piscines, de lÃ plages, des diffÃ©rents restaurants et des activitÃ©s proposÃ©es. Le personnel est d'une grande gentillesse, il ne parle pas franÃ§ais mais se dÃ©brouille trÃ¨s bien en anglais. Nous avons fait 2 excursions : le tour de l'Ã®le et l'Ã®le de Nisiros, toutes deux trÃ¨s bien. Il est Ã©galement trÃ¨s facile de se rendre dans la ville de Kos en prenant le bus devant l'hÃ´tel.More
A fantastic family holiday, excellent service
A very well maintained hotel, friendly staff, lovely rooms. Even though it was the last week of the season, all the restaurants, bars and clubs were still running. The food was absolutely fabulous. Recommend trying the on-site Italian and Greek Taverna.Only criticism would be that the fantastic selection of pools were too cold!More
Family and sports focused - good for an active holiday
General description: Sports and family focused hotel. It's located directly on the seashore, 3kms from nearest town. Good for: having fun with the kids on the beach or in the pools; sports activities; Not good for: going partying outside the hotel (although plenty of opportunities for that inside the hotel). Reception: Efficient and friendly. We arrived at 9 am and our rooms were ready only at 2 pm (in line with what is said on the website). We checked in, left our luggage in the luggage room and were able to use all the facilities immediately. Room & housekeeping: We booked a larger 2 person room (as a family with 1 two-year old child). Our seaview room was at ground floor. The room was quite spacious (around 28 sq m) with a decent-sized balcony. Main bed was wide and comfortable, extra bed which was provided since this was a 2+1 booking had an excessively soft mattress. Food and drinks: Food was good, tasty and quite varied. Different themed nights every day (on a 2-week cycle) for dinner. The offer was varied enough to find somethig for everybody. Outside meal hours, bars provide snacks, sandwiches etc. so food is available 24h. Drinks, beer and wine available at bars 24h (beer and wine also in restaurant during meals). Although the wine was a typical table wine standard it was a good complement to the meals. We went to both a la carte restaurants (Italian and Greek). Although food was very good at both, we recommend the Greek one as better (more varied food and very good service, with staff explaining each dish in detail). You are limited to 1 visit in each of the a la carte restaurants per week, but the main restaurant does a very good job anyway. Beach, pools, hotel area: The hotel has a "village" type arrangement (small buildings in a garden setting). This does a good job in creating a cosy atmosphere. The large number of pools spread across the hotel grounds also allows to create different atmospheres - two pools are designated as "relax pools" aiming to provide a quiet surrounding. Beach access is direct from the hotel garden. The beach itself is sandy and flat. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available both by the pools and at the beach and there was no real problem in finding empty beds. A 25m sport pool is a good factor for those who want to put in some work in the water and not just splash around :-) Sports activities. The Magic Life brand is known for a sports profile. We took part in mountain bike tours. There is a large choice of tours - each morning 2 tours, one easier (typically around 20 kms and 300m height difference) and one harder (typically around 30-40 kms and 400m heigh difference), plus once a week a 60km tour allowing you to see half the island in one go. Apart from that, there are short 10km tours in afternoons. I definitely recommend the morning tours if you are a mid level MTB enthusiast like me, if you are "pro" level, they may not be hard enough :-) We also took part in fitness classes and nordic walking. Both types of activities were good, the instructors friendly and professional. The hilly area around the hotel provides also a lot of space for trail running. Overall assessment. Definitely a positive recommendation for sports oriented people, or families looking for a quiet beach holiday.More
Tamar and Fred Hall at One of the Best Holidays Ever
It was such a lovely hotel. My Husband and i were there for the last 2 weeks of the season. the Hotel was very clean and well maintained and very comfortable with about 5 very large pools and about 3 children pools had a small play area rooms were large and homely. The staff we didn't meet all the staff but the ones we met were all so friendly and made you feel very welcome from management through to the cleaners they all spoke to you and could not do enough to make your stay as pleasant and as enjoyable as it was. The food was lovely and a good choice of dishes and they had a different theme night every night at the restaurant. Entertainment was brilliant and the entertainment team joined you throughout the day and night and we all had a really good laugh. The only problem with the holiday was we had 2 days of rain but it didn't spoil the fun. We saw management every day and they were always smiling and asking if everything was alright and to go to them if you have any problems. We can't name 1 person who stood out as they all were wonderful. When we were waiting to leave the managers were out side to say goodbye to us and wishing us a safe journey home Thank you everybody for making this holiday one of the best holidays everMore
Great family and sports friendly hotel
Our stay at Magic Life Marmari Palace was very good. Things we would like to highlight: - friendly and welcoming atmosphere created by everybody from the staff: from the management through restaurant and bar staff, actiivity and sports staff down to housekeeping. - the hotel offers options for everybody - quiet areas areound some pools for those seeking peace, family oriented playing areas, sports activities - we were impressed by good organization of the hotel and customer-first approach - evening shows by the entertainment team were also a nice attraction - our room was a standard 2-person room in the main building with seaview. The room offered a nice view of the entire pool area and the sea - the room was nice and clean and daily cleaning was of good standard - meals were interesting and varied, with a good selection of dishes - the hotel is right next to a nice sandy beach, good both for sunbathing and walkingMore
