Well, after staying in private apartments for the past 5 years, it was to be expected that there would be a few differences.
The hotel provides you with 1 toilet roll on the start of your stay and they replenish rarely. Also there is no soap and have to buy your own. I was however advised that this is standard in any SC hotel, so fair play.
The rooms are filthy, absolutely filthy. This is something the hotel needs to address. The maids, nice as they were, never mopped the floor only swept with a dustpan, which really made no difference. There was always someones hair in the room everytime they cleaned it. Presumably theres or from other people.
We were put on the ground floor which wasnt a major issue but the view of the tool cupboard left alot to be desired and spent very little time on the balcony because of it.
The food was poor. I like my food but it really is better to eat out. The staff were all friendly as were the TC reps. Although some of the entertainment staff are just after one thing as far as I can see.
Other people on holiday will alway be a problem and its important to seperate these differences from the hotel itself. People will get up at 4am to put towels on sunbeds. Its ridiculous and you would think people would go on holiday to be adventurous. Instead you get a scene that is well suited to benidorm. All that was missing was a chain smoking old lady on a motorised cart. Also they allowed glasses around the pool. This needs to be erradicated as not only is it dangerous but I was sick of drinking my non Turkish beer (there wasnt any) in a plastic cup. Felt like I was at a flaming festival.
The hotel however is brilliant for kids and people moaning about the noise need a reality check. Theres plently of things for them to do, for all ages. My 1 year old loved it. Nice Turkish shaves and haircuts to be had there. I recommend getting one of these.
On the whole, its a huge complex and your never going to please everyone. If you want my advise then spend as little time as possible at the hotel and explore Marmaris, it really is a fantastic place. I've been many times, but I probably wont stay here again, in all honesty. 3*.
Views are either of the pool or the mantinence. Your call.
