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.

Just got back from a two week stay at this wonderful hotel. You have the choice of staying by the pools or go to the private beach. Kids loved the clubs but not many English at the hotel. Plenty of choice with food, something to please everyone and all the staff were friendly. A special thank you to Claudia at the pool bar in the evenings for her lovely smile and putting up with us. Only down side was location as no where really just to walk too but with so much going on in the hotel no need to anyway. More
Poorly Maintained (moldy rooms) and Poorly Managed, but decent pool and beach
The first 2 days of our trip were totally ruined by this hotel. They made us pack and move 4 times to get what we paid for 6 months in advance. 1) When we check in they tell us we are having our room downgraded from a family room with 2 separate rooms to a single room room. 2) The next day they make us move to a room which is full of mold (we didn't even get through the door before we could smell that there was no chance to stay there). We have 2 asthmatics in the family so this simply wasn't possible 3) They make us move back into a downgraded room for the night 4) They finally get us a room with only a little bit of mould. Half the rooms were mouldy, half the beds gave me backaches, and the internet never worked for more than about 5 minutes a day in even the best rooms. The management only reimbursed about half the cost of those 2 nights with some massages and car rental (they should have paid us back the full cost because we spent almost the entirety of our first day having 15 meetings/calls with the front desk, hotel manager, and travel agent. 6 hours spent waiting in the lobby for people to show up or rooms to become available. Many hours packing and moving. By the 2nd day, we had started looking into flights to go home, it was that bad. The rest of the trip was okay, the beach wasn't too crowded and there was lots of pool area if you want that. The food was pretty good but not great. When we were there, it was almost 100% Germans from Tui agency. We made our reservation through a Czech travel agent, Fischer. I think this is why we were targeted to get the crappy treatment, our agent probably just wasn't important enough to them. Also our daughter wouldn't go to the kids club because no one was there who wasn't speaking German. My advice: Be careful if you aren't booking through Tui in Germany. If you are Russian or British, Polish, or Czech, there's a good chance they will put you through the ringer. If I could be sure I could trust this hotel, I would consider coming back, but based on my experience it's not possible, so I won't be back.More
A well-managed (mediocre) five-star hotel with a stressful dining area, lack of medical treatment
The long (but narrow) beach is beautiful having a nice view of the neighbouring Islands but can be crowded. To get a good table at dinner you have to stay in a queue before the door is open. At the beginning of the dinner you also have to stay in a queue in front of main dishes. I heard someone complaining about people who take food slowly, After all I felt a bit stressful staying at this hotel. The hotel has more than 300 rooms, suggesting that there could be more than 500 - 600 guests. For this capacity the hotel is, however, very well managed i.e. they are used to having los of guests. According to the hotel staff a doctor visits the hotel at 5pm during a day and if necesssary, he can only provide prescriptions to get medicine at the airport. If your room is far from the main building, the wifi does not work well. Whether or not you feel relaxed there, it totally depends on with what kind of expectation you come to stay. But to us, it was not the case although there are lots of positive factors.More
Great hotel, lots of Brits cf other CMLs, mediocre watersports
The hotel itself is very nice. Lot's of great pools, and accommodation + food is up to the normal CML standards. Guests were primarily Brits, Austrians, Germans, Italians and French. Disappointed with the watersports: basically just windsurfing. I got some excuse about not being able to have Cats there...but 200m along the beach they have them.More

Perfect relaxing holiday
It was a great relaxing holiday. Super clean. Lovely pools, good little private beach. Entertainment perfect for what we wanted ie could join in or not. Food was fab! Amazing choice for each mealtime and very tasty. Lovely friendly staff. Good choice of all-inclusive drinks too. Only criticism was that it was difficult to get a sunned by the main pool unles you put a towel on the bed around 9.30am. Had to do this as everyone else did! Can't really see a way around this. Also, wifi was good but couldn't get it in the rooms most of the time. Did get it on the beach and around the pool but not always.More
