The hotel is in a great location - 1 minute from Long Beach. Just take a stroll along Long Beach, its really lively with loads going on day and night. You are very near the Atlantis Waterpark on the beachfront and also Aqua Dream on the hill. Theres loads of info on the forum about where best to change money, recommended restaurants,/bars etc etc. Just look to the right of the page "Top questions about Marmaris" . Its all there if you just take time to read it.

To get along to the Marina/Bar Street area jump on a dolmus(bus) from the main road. You will be along there in 10 mins. You can also visit nearby Icmeler - opposite direction from the Marina, take the white bus with orange stripe. It takes approx 15 mins to get to Icmeler and it is definately worth a visit. You could take a water taxi over if you prefer.

Hope this helps a little. Sure you will have a brilliant time in Marmaris. Anything your not sure about please just ask.

Came back from Marmaris this morning.

Greatest advice to you would be to take sterling and convert it when you are there. As the lira is going down and down, they would much rather have sterling. We booked day trips and the guy was almost disappointed when we had lira rather than pounds. We also bought some souvenirs which were 35 lira (about £14) but as we paid in sterling, he let us have them for £10, as that"s how much they want sterling rather than lira. Conversion rate there is 1 pound to 2.8 lira, so the same or more than here.

Definitely eat in O Yes. The best restaurant by far!!!! We ate there twice and the food was amazing!

The jeep safari was amazing - about 8 people on a jeep, about 8 jeeps in convoy. Hire a water gun for 10lira and off you go - massive water fight between jeeps - be warned, you get soaked. You also go to a waterfall you can jump off into the water and then to Jesus beach where the water is all very shallow, so from afar it looks as if everyone is walking on water.

Quad biking was also extremely fun.

Have a good holiday!

O YES was always one of our favourites but the one in Armutulan closed. We once tried the one down at the start of the Marina but it wasnt as good. Did you eat there or at the one on Long Beach? Glad that you enjoyed your meal there anyway and that you had a good holiday.
