I have children and I say Bodrum is far nicer than Marmaris. There are plenty of nice resorts around the Peninsula so you can choose whether you want lively or quiet. Somewhere like Bitez or Yalikavak are ideal for children.

20 years ago I went to Marmaris for my first trip to Turkey,it gave us our love for Turkey but not for Marmaris.There were some very nice places like the marina and bazaar but it was just not what we were looking for.Ichmela was nice for a visit by taxi boat.We have only returned once a couple of years ago when we went as guests of my sons friend.We went for a weekend while we were staying in Bitez,boy how it had grown,it took us 20mins on a bus to get to the front,when we first went we stayed at the back of the resort and it took just 10 mins to walk.

The Bodrum peninsula is beautiful,you can stay in Bodrum if you like it busy or Gumbet if you like it lively or in one of the towns or villages doted around the coast.my favourite is Bitez,there is a large water park close by.It is easy to get around the whole peninsula cheaply by dolmus.If you want A.I.you may find that they are a bit out of the way.check a few of the sights for the areas you may be interested in to give you a better idea.
