We stayed in September 2016 for the first time, and were unsure what to expect. However, the holiday turned out be a great success, and we couldn't fault the Hotel or staff. The animation team were very good, and as we had our 10 year old son with us, they took good care of him. We will definitely be going...

We went to Hotel Marelen and had a fantastic holiday. We took a very young child with us and they provided all the necessary equipment. The only issue we did have was finding baby food but that was easily enough sorted by buying fruit and mashing it up. Lovely holiday and very nice, clean hotel.

Thank you for your 5 star review. It is difficult to get certain brands of baby foods here, and they can be expensive. We appreciate your comments on our facilities and cleanliness, and we hope you will return to us again in the future.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in October 2016. Clean , tidy and the staff bent over backwards to look after all the guests. Wendy was exceptional and seemed to work 24/7. She always had a smile & is the epitome of excellent customer service and I suggest anyone who thinks otherwise is one of these people who are never happy....
