We had been to Marmaris/Icmeler about 8 years ago and stayed next door in the Marmaris Palace so we knew the location and the surrounding area.
The Hotel itself was fine and the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and tidy, with sheets being changed on a regular basis. There were also nice towel displays by the maid.
There was no entertainment other than a guy who put a compilation CD on the decks and then vanished until someone either complained about the music or it stopped. The bar staff were by in large friendly although they could be a bit miserable.
I had read before we went that the food was hit and miss, so went with an open mind. However, my open mind lasted 2 days! The food was luke warm at best, very little choice and the salad bar appeared to be on display from 7am until 9pm. Most people we spoke to said the food was very poor but it was end of season!! The only ones who appeared to thoroughly enjoy the food, particularly the kiddies food (chips, burgers, sausages) were the cats. One of which loved to jump into the chips at every opportunity.
The food in nearby Icmeler is very good and reasonably priced. We can recommend Cupids and the Florida Bar, both excellent.
Speaking to one family who had stayed 3 weeks and who left on our 2nd day, they said that their 1st 2 weeks were excellent. Food and entertainment good with plenty of variety and warm. Maybe we just chose the wrong week. On that note I would recommend you visit this hotel no later than the 1st October to avoid disappointment.
Despite the above we had a relaxing and enjoyable break, made good by the location and some nice people.
Stay clear of the rear of the hotel, the main road is like the M6 24/7. Any sea view recommended.
