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.

Been here for the past 2 years in a row!
So hard to fault this hotel. The pools are beautiful, the beach is lovely, the staff are so friendly, the entertainment team are fantastic (the best i've seen), delicious food and very comfortable rooms. Kos is also a very lovely town to go out in at night or day (can get a bus from right outside the hotel, takes 20 minutes)... highly recommend going! There are two restaurants which you can visit as part of the all-inclusive (a greek and an italian). I only ever visited the Italian, the food wasn't great but it's nice to be served a 3 course meal after spending 2 weeks dining at the all-inclusive buffet. Overall, lovely hotel and i've thoroughly enjoyed my past 2 holidays here. Suitable for all ages and types of people.More

Good relaxing holiday but will not be returning!
Me & My now husband arrived at club magic life marmari palace on 8th July for our honeymoon! We were very impressed that after me contacting the hotel to inform then it was our honeymoon & also my husbands birthday we arrived to a tidy room with a bottle of champagne & red wine waiting for us! They had also wrote out two cards for us which made it more special! Overall all the hotel is lovely, very clean. However a few points I will make out to other people planning on stopping here... This is largely a German, French & Russian resort with hardly any English... We managed to make friends with one English family which made it abit easier for us as the night time entertainment is nearly none existent! Only one night in the week did we feel entertained! I would also recommend that you prepare yourself for mosquito bites! I'm leaving after a week with 30 mosquito bites! All in all it is a nice place but after a week we are glad to be leaving... Food is ok, not 5 star all inclusive at all and some of the staff really make it special! The one bar man we had was brilliant and mimi & gabby the dancers are brilliant went out of their way to sit and talk to us as get to know us! Would really expect better from a 5 star all inclusive.... Things need to be improved! More

Two week annual holiday
Just returned having stayed two weeks at the beginning of July. Grounds and pools well maintained. We had two rooms which were very large with a decent sized balcony. For the first time ever we did not tip the cleaners. Our rooms were clean on our arrival but our beds were not changed for the whole two weeks. One day neither room at bath towels. The cleaners did the minimum possible. Internet and TV was available but the internet was not always available and the TV consisted of BBC and CNN news. The hotel has mostly German and Russian guests. During out second week you had to book sun beds really early. We ended up sitting at the pool at 7.30 am and going to breakfast in shifts. Although there is a policy that no booking beds before 9.00 is allowed this is not enforced. One guest booked her sun bed at 7.00. She sat with a cup of coffee for an hour and then returned after 5.00 pm. We usually sat at the pool by the Vitamin bar. Smaller pool and quieter but at the end of the second week loads of kids. The bar tender at the Vitamin Bar was extremely helpful and very pleasant. One comment I should make is there is no life guard either at the pools or the sea. The food was OK. Lots of fruit and salads. Very repetitive. Grilled fish lunch and dinner. Maybe grilled pork or chicken. The puddings were awful! I opted for ice cream or fruit. The eggs at breakfast were usually cold. The restaurant hot extremely at dinner. We sat outside at breakfast. We had two extremely hard working Albanian waiters who were cheerful and helpful. One was Alexander. The entertainment was about the worst we had experienced. Live music but the singing was poor. We sat in the Wonderbar area every night and played cards. Again there were a few very efficient waiters (Dan from Romania was one). The majority of staff were very friendly and worked hard. We went with First Choice. We had a meeting with the Rep on arrival but that was the last we saw of him. No communication from First Choice at all. No information available in the Reps Office. We repeatedly went to find the Rep to ask for details of pick up for departure. Eventually Reception told us the Rep had left and a First Choice Rep was coming but they did not know who and when!. First Choice should have informed us. We contacted the E Mail address given and eventually got a reply.! Very poor service from First Choice. Very relaxing lazy holiday. Lots of keep fit available if you want to get involved. Very hot with a few days that were very windy. Quite a lot of mosquitos after dark. We did swim in the sea every day. The beach is narrow with sun beds and umbrellas. Water sports available. Overall we enjoyed our Holiday.More
