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.

Two weeks of holiday bliss
We booked a two week holiday at Marmari palace , what a place nothing to much trouble for the staff, from morning to night we were well looked after. the restaurant food was excellent with a terrific menu to suit all tastes. Activities include archery, and mountain biking which has 3 levels depending on you capabilities, canoeing @ tennis also available. A big thank you to all the staff which is to many to name for your kindness and first class service at all times.More
Relaxing family holiday
Welcoming and friendly we can find no fault with the hotel, we stayed for 1 week from the 6th May. The resort was very quiet with predominantly German guests but there was no issue as all staff spoke perfect English and catered for everyone! The staff were all brilliant with our 4 year old, they couldn't do enough to try and entertain him, particularly George, the guest relations manager, who was always on hand if you needed anything. The selection of food was incredible with even the fussiest of eaters being catered for, although the restaurant could be busy at peak times there was always plenty of food that was hot and cooked freshly. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, a big thank you to Yaris in the restaurant who took wonderful care of us the whole week! A full range of activities means that you can be as active or as lazy as you wish, the staff are all very friendly but put no pressure on you to join in with the activities. All in all had a wonderful and relaxing week.More

Perfect getaway break
Me and my partner stayed here early season from 5th-12th May to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and it didn't disappoint. We pretty much had the whole hotel resort to ourselves! Including the 8 pools we were spoilt for choice. They are spread around the resort so no fights over sun loungers. The weather was hot and sunny 28C top temperature very lucky. The room was simple. modern and cleaned every day with fresh towels and sheets. You have air con, security safe at no extra price in the room unlike some places we've stayed before being hit with hidden charges. The grounds were well maintained and clean throughout the resort. There was a private stretch of beach with a beach bar serving food and drinks nearby. There was also water sports activities and archery close by. The beach was nice enough but I think in peak season it could get very busy as there didn't seem like there were many sun loungers or space. I don't think the sea would be suitable for children as there was a sharp dip and gets deep very quickly. You could arrange to make a trip to Paradise beach which seems more family friendly. You wont feel like you need to leave the hotel resort you have everything you need. There is a big program of activities throughout the day to suit everyone. From yoga, pilates on the beach to tennis or mountain biking if your feeling more energetic. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and its not difficult to find someone to help you. The food was amazing with plenty of choice. We have never seen so much food! You can either eat in the main restaurant which had a different theme every night such as French night, Alpen night. You can also eat at the on site Greek taverna on the beach or the Italian restaurant which had set menus again plenty of food. You only get one use of these per stay. If you do feel like venturing outside there is a bus stop opposite the hotel which can take you into kos town for 3 euro However there aren't many buses each day During our stay there were only 2 a day from the hotel. We went into Kos and then had to pay for a taxi back to the hotel as we'd missed our last bus due to the confusing timetable. They also didn't seem to stick to them. There are many excursions available We went on the Nisyros volcanic encounter. We went to the island of Nissyros which has an active volcano where you can stand inside. There is a steep climb up/down to stand inside the crater but well worth it once your down there. They also took us to the capital town Madraki and a tiny moutain village Nikia which was very pretty. We paid 50euro each for this trip but make sure to take change as to get into the volcano it costs 3uro extra each for tax purposes. This was a surprise to us as we weren't told of this beforehand. Overall we had an absolutely wonderful stay here and would definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing break with everything catered for for everyone. We would love to come back again with family and friends as it is a place well worth knowing about everything was perfect and couldn't have asked for more.More

Nearly nothing to fault
We stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks end of september to middle of october 2014 and enjoyed it very much. We had a family room with seaview, clean, modern, new and spacious. The beds were very comfortable, waterboiler and a tea selection in the room. WiFi signal was bad. It worked only in the bathroom and exactely one corner of the bed room. 1 minute walk from a very nice beach, clean and with plenty of sunbeds. It was never too crowded. the sea is a not as calm as on the other side of the island. I think it had been calm 2 days out of 21. Not ideal for kids. We drove to the south side half the time, as it is not as windy and the sea has nearly no waves there. The restaurant is big, the staff friendly (with one or two exceptions)... The food is nice, they could spare the asian night though. As a fan of asian cuisine - disappointed. Other then that, could always find something I liked. The breakfast was superb. A big aqua park cross the road from the hotel, closes 30th of sept though, so we never made it there. Other then that nothing to do within walking distance from the hotel. We had a car most of the time, so didnt mind it. (get a car in the nearby touristshop, not in the hotel -it will cost you half the money!!! ) If you are planning to have dinner at the Tavern at the beach, make sure you dont forget your mosquito spray. We were eaten alife there by those little monsters. The food was very good though. One thing that I was annoyed by in this facility was the smell problem some days. At about two days a week, somewhere around wednesday, thursday and/or friday evening, there was a very strong penetrating smell of sanitation. Not only could we not sit outside those evenings, but we had to close all the windows, otherwise it got really disgusting. With windows closed, it was no problem. I hope the hotel can fix this problem next season. Other then that, it is a place I can recommend. If we have to come back to Cos, we will most probably come back to this place.More

I went here in the holidays and it did live up to the expectations. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away from everything else its worth coming. A highlight is that there are a good variety of pools to choose from and always good food to offer. Also there is a free gym- that is a bonus. However some of the machines need repairing.More
