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.

Little break away
Amazing place to stay although we were supposed to stay at family life marmari beach we were so happy to have been transferred here. Super friendly service couldn't fault them in any way shape or form. Pools were amazing, food was lush so much to choose from, staff super nice and friendly so helpful with anything we needed. Room service was amazing clean towels, beds made everyday. ð So much to do and see, children's club, bike rides, exercises such as Zumba, fat burning, pool activities and the evening with shows such as 70/80/90s night and micheal Jackson including fireworks. Wish I was still there i do hope to return in the future as I miss it ð thank you so much magic life for the best memories of a life time !! ðMore

2 week summer break
My partner and I got a great deal. The hotel itself was very clean,with great facilities. Staff were helpful and pleasant. It was a lovely relaxing break overall pools were great too. I would highly recommend hiring a car for the day to explore the island. There is also a great restaurant if you head right along the beach.....sorry I can't remember the name, it is literally a 5 min walk along the beach front. We had a room by the family pool which was a lot quieter than the main pool and something we much preferred. The food at the hotel was although wide in choice, a little samie and seemed to have the same herb running through nearly all of the dishes....even the breakfast!!.....and smothered all over the chips!! a bit of a problem if you dislike said herb, such as in our case!! The puddings in the evening were very disappointing....weirdly however they seemed to have a lovey selection of fresh chocolate cake out on the breakfast trolleys!:-/ I really disliked our visit to the greek restaurant on the beach in the complex....hence why we ended up heading out of complex restaurant that evening.....where we discovered a great Tavern Restaurant if you head right along the beach by foot. The Italian is by far the best of a average bunch of apparently a la carte restaurants?... available in the complex really if I am being honest. The food was the only thing that really let the place down. The cocktails were great.....very strong though!:-/ The hotel mainly caters for German tourists and the kids club is in German, but I don't think the kids tend to mind. One slightly annoying point is that the kids club is right by the main outdoor area of the restaurant, so when we sat down for dinner most evening we had to listen to german nursery rhymes.....one of which my husband learnt all the words to by the end of the holiday......he even found himself humming around the house over a month later, much to my annoyance! lol Despite these minor complaints, overall the rest of the hotel was fab. Kos itself is a beautiful Island, great beaches and lovely little towns and villages and would recommend for families and couples alike.More
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
So glad we got moved here ðð»
We were changed to the Magic life mamari palace last minute (originally booked for mamari beach) and cannot complain about a single thing! After lots of drama with Thomson, we were so happy with the hotel! Firstly the staff were second to none! Amazing, attentive and so helpful to say the least. The hotel is brilliant: Food: good selection, lovely salads, even the fussiest of eaters will not go hungry! Fresh omelette station in the morning, coffee shop with fresh cakes all day! So much food and drink you literally can't fit it all in! Rooms: spacious, cleaned everyday, tea & coffee facilities, free safe, good hot shower, air con, nice layout of blocks of rooms. Pools: So many pools, we didn't get round them all! Lovely and clean, some deeper than others, good for adults and children. Water polo goals, volley ball nets of the beach, lots of exercise activities and sports to keep you busy if that's what you like. My brother got married whilst we were here in a beautiful venue 30 mins away. The staff at the hotel really made it special for the happy couple whilst they were there. Only 10 min drive to airport which is great, and 30 min bus ride to kos town. Lots if excursions to do on the island if that's your thing. Mostly German guests, very few English which was not a problem as such. Evenings were fun if you wanted a drink and dance. Overall there were 19 of us and everybody loved staying here, will def consider returning in the future. I would like the management to know it is their staff that make this place Magic! And they should be recognised for all their hard work. Special mention to Dimitri behind the bar for his dance moves, Elena and George for keeping the drinks flowing & yiannis in the restaurant for his welcome in the morning. Lovely send off too with all our fav staff seeing us off with champagne. We will be back sometime Cummins family xxxxxx 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
