Marumi filters on a Canon S2 IS are going to be the same as Marumi filters on anything else - so perhaps track down some reviews using google. Looks like no one here knows much about them.

I'm using Heliopan multi-coated in case that helps (Heliopan is a respected brand, but are a bit expensive).

As for macro filters - they've been discussed here:

The DCR-250 mentioned in the discussion has quite a narrow depth of field - so to maximise the DOF, you may need to close down the aperture - which will mean using flash - which means using a flash diffuser (eg you can improvise with a piece of white paper to diffuse the light). I believe Canon as a macro filter with a wider DOF.

I use two filters on my S2. A Promaster UV multi coated and Tiffen circular polarizer, both 58mm. As for macro, I have a 52mm Sigma achromatic macro + 58mm-52mm step down ring and the 58mmSony VCL-M3358, which is an awesome macro lens and works great with both the S2 and H1.

Here is a great post showing what an S2 + DCR-250 + diffuser can do:
