We stayed here for two weeks in September and during our stay we came across similar problems, that other guests have encountered. The rooms where very basic but we expected that with the price we paid. The hotel food however, was unedible! I ordered spaghetti bolognese which was nice on top but cold underneath. My partner had ordered a peppercorn sauce steak and when she finally got it, it looked more like a leather sandal placed in front of her. The steak was very thin, leathery looking, Salty like someone had dipped it in salt and to top it off no peppercorn sauce!! We called Hassan over to question it and he couldn't really answer so he took the steak back in to put peppercorn sauce on it or so we assumed, (Boy was we wrong). So a good 10 minutes later Hassan reappears with steak in hand says "enjoy the meal" then goes. When we glanced down at the steak we saw that it didn't again, have peppercorn sauce ontop but instead hot red pesto!!! When questioned again Hassan couldn't answer and said that it wasn't him cooking it! Ok so that isn't our problem is it? And shouldn't advertise something on menus that you are unable to provide. It's fair to say we didn't eat here again and also managed to get the bill reduced as there was no way we were paying full whack for such disgusting food. It also ruined what would have been a romantic evening so cheers Ali Baba! A lot of guests there stated money had gone missing so I'de advise using a padlock for suitcases and boycott the safe waste of money and not really sure who had the keys. Some hotel guests where over noisy and inconsiderate which meant in the end we had to change rooms hotel staff are more interested getting the money in rather than amending problems. As long as you spend your cash you will be fine here. Just keep an eye on your money when you do buy things from the hotel like crisps and cans that they don't try and charge you more, the prices seem to be charged as they please. After our stay here we heard by word of mouth that the reputation here wasn't that good even by some Turkish people too that live in marmaris, so are they all wrong too? This IS the same hotel that people are talking about believe me. Good Luck!

We stayed here from 2nd sept to 16th b&b. we were pleasantly surprised by everything. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews but I ha nothing to worry about. Room was spacious and clean with a wardrobe and dressing table. Bathroom was a wet room but not a problem. Had a balcony overlooking the pool. All the staff are really friendly especially Hassan. Room cleaned every day and sheets and towels changed every other day. 10 minute walk to the beach and 2 mins from restaurants and bars. All in all we had a great time and will hopefully be returning next year. Jemma an David Liverpool xxx

One of the best hotels i have stayed at , the staff were so kind and a laugh ( hasan , mustafa and the others. Made out holiday great, couldn't fault the hotel one bit. We was made feel welcome since the day we arrived.

The bar was always open , menu for the food which was fantastic but cheap too. The pool was cleaned everyday and the hotel in general, almost everyday the hotel room was cleaned.

Met some great people as well, everyone was so friendly

One of the best holidays of 2013, and im definitely booking this for 2014 in the same hotel.

First trip to turkey and it was one the best by far.a

See you in 2014 hasan ha :D

I have just returned from a week at Ali Baba's hotel which I found to be very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff were very accommodating, we were made to feel very welcome and would recommend anyone that wants an inexpensive no frills hotel to stay at Ali Baba's. Every member of staff were courteous and would go out of their way to help (even providing a phone number for you to call if you wanted some assistance getting back to the hotel had you been out) One our leaving day each member of staff (Mustafa, Ali, Hasan, Canish and our lovely cleaning lady all came out and wished us well on our travel home. being that is it a small hotel we were allowed the priveledge of the personal touches that some might not get staying at a larger hotel.....I recommend this hotel albeit basic but you get what you pay for !!!

Me and my friend have just returned from our week in Marmaris. Ali Babas is a great place to stay. It is very central, close to beach , yet a lovely place to relax after our hectic shopping trips. Yes the hotel is basic - but that is what we paid for. I loved the Turkish breakfasts. Musstaf is a brilliant cook and Hasan & Ali Baba looked after us so well. The cleaner was great too - this is a family run hotel and you are made to feel very much part of their family.
