With a standout pool scene and beachfront setting, TUI Magic Life Marmari Palace is made for water babies.
This place gives you the pick of three restaurants, six bars and four tennis courts. Another highlight is the pool scene – it spreads across an area of 5,000 square metres.
Location-wise, the hotel’s on a sweep of sand, which means you can easily trade the pool for the Aegean Sea. The island’s capital, Kos Town, is a little further afield – just a 25-minute bus ride away.
All eyes are on the pool area here. There are six pools sprinkled around the grounds, including one with lanes and a quiet number. What’s more, you’ve got two huge whirlpools and shallow pools for little ones.
There’s a soft-sand beach on your doorstep, which comes well-stocked with loungers and thatched umbrellas. And if you fancy a day out, head for the waterpark just over the road.
FOOD & DRINK
The hotel’s dining scene includes a buffet place with an al fresco terrace, themed nights and show-cooking stations. As for the à la cartes, they specialise in Italian and Greek cuisine
During the day, you can tuck into light lunches from the bars by the pools and beach. The menu takes in things like salads, jacket potatoes and toasties.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Activity-wise, you can borrow bikes and head off into the countryside, or go canoeing to another beach nearby. The floodlit tennis courts look like they belong on the professional circuit.
A rota of fitness classes is on offer, with things like pilates, dance and Nordic walking. Alternatively, you can grab windsurfing gear down on the beach, or take a lesson for a little extra*. Just so you know, some activities have age restrictions.
Traditional Greek music, Eighties’ nights and line-dancing lessons star on the entertainment schedule. Plus, the lounge bar stays open 24/7, and offers cocktails with a sea view.
