“another great visit to the Orkide”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

This was our 3rd stay in the Orkide

Once again for a budget hotel it is great value for money

The hotel is clean the cleaners came in every day we were there and done a great job,

The barman Erdall well I don't quite know how to describe the commitment this man has for his job he will often not finish until 3am in the morning but is up at 7am again and although he has 2 staff to help him I watched him one morning at 9am dusting down the tv the speakers and the high hidden bits as well,
What a worker I am a businessman and if he stayed in the UK i would employ him any day,

You never get pushed to buy another drink or to order from the menu they wait until you ask for it absolutely no hassle,
The other guests at this hotel have often been before although this was only our 3rd visit we recognised and enjoyed the company of many of them,
If you want a 5 star hotel where you are just another number then don't go to the Orkide as they don't do numbers just your name and welcome you as old friends whether it is your 1st visit or you are returning again,
The food is good we ate out a lot but also ate in the hotel and could never complain about what we had,
We are returning it September that is the best recommendation I can give any hotel

Room Tip: some people may have a problem if they have a room with a sea view as the road at that side often ha...

Have just returned home from the Orkide. Have been going for at least 6 years & would not stay anywhere else. Although only 3 star for service, cleanliness & superb accommodation it is better than some 5 star hotels. The pool & grounds are immaculate, the staff very friendly & helpful. The management is exceptional & nothing is too much trouble. Clean sheets & towels every day 24 hour hot water any reasonable request will be dealt with quickly & efficiently. Although your stay is on a b & b basis the food in the restaurant is fantastic & really good value for money. Try the garlic shrimps - fantastic. The beach is 2 minute walk is very clean,plenty of sun beds & if u buy a drink completely free. The bus stop is at the top of the road & there is a McDonalds for kids. There are so many rotten hotels in Marmaris choose this one & you won't be disappointed.

We, (Darryl & Janet) have just returned from their 4th visit to the Orkide. Once again we have had an excellent stay in the small family run hotel on the edge of Marmaris. Korkut and the staff made us so very welcome and made our stay memorable with the lovely way they treated us, we are always made to feel special. The Orkide is very welcoming and has some of the best food in the area all at reasonable prices. The rooms are clean and spacious and the maid service is exceptional. The hotel is located 1 minute from the beach and many shops and restaurants near by. Now about the bar man..... Erdal is by far 'the best barman in Marmaris' even go as far to say is 'the best barman in Turkey' he is very attentive and we enjoy our little chats and jokes. Oktay was part of the team this year and he too, showed us what Turkish hospitality is all about. Thanks to all at the Orkide. Roll on May 2014.

We have just returned from 10 nights at the Orkide Hotel (pronounced Or - Kee - Da). I travelled with my partner and spent so long deciding which hotel and picked this one; I was slightly nervous as my partner hasn't really done a 'basic' hotel holiday before; but he was really happy with my choice.

Room....
We arrived about 2am, our room was a corner room 304 overlooking the pool. It has 3 single beds in so was a good size. It was clean and we were quiet happy; the only negative I have was that the balcony door had a gap when closed so it was rather noisy but we got use to this (and earplugs helped) especially with the 5am call for prayer.

The beds were more comfortable than i expected; there was a pillow each and a sheet (blankets were available in the wardrobe). As we arrived late on we didnt pay until the next morning; we slept fine without the air con so decided not to get this (however Korkut told us we could get it daily if we required). We paid extra for a fridge in the room which was great for keeping our water cool and our lotions and potions.

The bathroom was clean and the shower was good and powerful, we had no problems with the water temperature. For those of you that do not know - dont flush toilet roll down the toilet, put this in the bin. At the back of the toilet you will notice two taps; us the top one to wash your bottom on the toilet.

Food....
Breakfast was good, a choice of cornflakes or museli; cheese, jam, honey, cucmber, tomato, eggs and lovely fresh bread. There was tea and coffee and juice.

The restaurant / bar was great; the choice of food was fantastic and the price was very reasonable in comparison to outside the hotel - Efes 6 Lira, Water 1 / 2 Lira, Cans of pop 3.5 / 4.5 lira, kebabs, salads, omlettes, steak, chciken, fish, desserts,and on Sunday a Sunday Dinner. We ate there many times for lunch and once for dinner and we have no complaints at all. Erdal runs the bar and he is a lovely man; very friendly and helpful (infact everyone there is).

Pool....
The pool is a good size, although it is very cold. Not all sunloungers get the sun all day long (but we liked that as it got quiet hot - so it meant it suited all)

There is a little garden also where we enjoyed a cool efes one night while the sun went down.

Location....
The location is fantastic; come out of the hotel turn left and walk 30 seconds and you are on the beach - if you want a lounger on the beach just buy a drink and you can use their facilities for free. (many have free wifi too) If you walk towards the centre on the beach you will come to an area of beach with no loungers where you can use for free.

Out of the hotel and turn right and walk for a minute you reach the main road and there are so many restaurants / bars / shops along here we were spoilt for choice.
There is Migros Supermarket at the top of the street.

We walked to marmaris centre from the hotel and it took us about 30 mins (although we walk fast) you can reach if from the prom or the main road. You can also get the dolmus (buses) along the main road.

General....

There are no irons in the hotel - although the hotel can do your ironing and washing for you if you wish.
Air Con is chargeable.
Safes are available at reception for an extra charge.
There is a cat(s) at the hotel, they were no bother (and i do not like cats and they didnt put me off)
Lots of people return year after year, everyone is very friendly.
The hotel have airport transfers available.
Fridges are available to hire.
There is a sign in reception that says not to bring food or drink into hotel, although we wanted ice cream and bought this at the shop and ate it at the pool no problems.
There is a small shop to the left of the hotel.
If you are looking for genuine turkish food - check out Alabi Restaurant just at the top of the street, we discovered this on our last night and it was amazing and on our doorstep.

Would we stay again - most certainly - the hotel is fantastic value and in a great location. You will not be disappointed.

The Broome's have just returned from our fourth stay in the Orkide Hotel in Marmaris. Again we had a wonderful week with friends.
This small family hotel, which is covered with lovely bourganvilia, has clean spaceous rooms, all with balconys,a beautiful pool area and well appointed gardens. It is a mere 1 minute stroll to the beach. The bar/restaurant serves excellent food which is delivered by Erdel (the best barman in Turkey!!!!).Prices are very competative. The owner Corcut and his family make your stay relaxed and he always has time for his guests.
There is NO bang bang music and the staff do not prance around dancing like idiots!!! We cannot wait for May/June 2014. Thank-you all.
