hi,back home this morning and 7 days just isn't enough lol. The service,hospitality and value for money never fails to impress.
We ate local around armutalan apart from one night in the marina
Great corner steakhouse,
September bar(lol not my choice)
Bella blu at the club Anastasia
Gustas which is in the marina and two places up from NILS restaurant.
Although I give everywhere 10/10 I think the summer breeze just tip for the size of the portions and just wonder how they make money lol. Never tried the steak at the gcsh but someone in our hotel was impressed and had eaten there for many years.
The one thing that did worry me was how quiet the area was and a lot of places are worried and asking why people are staying away and people taking up half board options.
Walking around we saw pool area been quiet but found our hotel and the club Julian a lot busier and the club excelsior very quiet to how I remember it.
We did the mega Diana all inclusive boat trip and the only one out of marmaris but had planned this trip long before the mayor/all inclusive fiasco,as you can imagine been the only boat in marmaris and it was full.
The only info I could get about the whole situation is the mayor thinks that a majority of boats is bringing down the standards of marmaris and find they have been brewing their own vodka etc to save money and risk to peoples health and these trips are more than just drinking alcohol all day,now the other boat trips are charging £9/£10 but charging for drinks and sailing out earlier and returning not till 5:30 so making you spend more.
It seems hes gunna wage a war with the jeep safaris and get all the old jeeps off the road and making the owners purchase new jeeps.
The mayor thinks that marmaris is losing holidaymakers to bodrum so wants to make marmaris more upmarket but that will lead to price rises etc.
Will update more and answer any questions but had to go into work this morning at short notice so shattered lol
But marmaris still offer a great choice for every type of holiday and long may it continue but with the mayor.
