“Fantastic......... Will certainly go back”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We had a fantastic holiday with friends in September. The hotel had basic accommodation. The rooms were very clean, maid service everyday with the option of clean towels. The food was excellent, great choice and always served with a smile. The bar staff were very friendly and took time to get to know you. 2 minutes from the beach (What else does anyone want on holiday)
To sum it up in one word BRILLIANT

Great stay

Basic hotel and wow do you get what you pay for?

Yes you do

Great company everybody is very friendly

The food was very good

The staff could not do enough for you

The building is old by Marmaris standard but always kept clean

The pool area is so relaxing and the people are all so friendly

Do not book this hotel if you are looking for a 4 or 5 star hotel that is going to be cheap,
That is not what this is so please do not go there and then write a bad review because your expectations have not been met or you may just be a bit of a snob and expect the earth,

However if you want GREAT Turkish family hospitality in an old building that is always clean and the food is good and you are the type who like to talk and integrate with the other guests this is the place to go.

By the way don't book until I have I have for 2014 as I may not get in LOL

I already have booked for June and September

We stayed for 4 weeks in September 13, we have been staying since 2003, so ten years. The Orkide is like home to us, and still offers the same good value and basic accomadation as ten years ago, a remarkable acheivment in today world. This might sound boring, but why fix it if it aint broke, in a perfect location just off the beach and the main Dolmus route. For discerning visitors who want quality B&B so that they can go out and enjoy Marmaris this is an ideal low cost base.
Nothing is to much trouble for Erdal the bar manager and his staff, with the owner also on site standards are high. It is very rare you read a bad review on the hotel, for anybody seeking the all inclusive model, or pressure selling and organised entertainment the Orkide is not for you.
A testiment to my comments is the fact that everytime we stay we meet people who like us return time and time again. We also have many friends on Facebook that we have met at the hotel.
At the Orkide you are not just a number or another face passing through, the business is built on personal service, genuine friendship and a concern for your wellbeing.
I reccommend the Orkide as the perfect small hotel, I have already booked for June 14 and am looking forward to watching the world cup matches from Brazil in the bar and soaking up the atmospheare.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool or seaview

Heard all about the great reviews so booked, as you might have guessed it was too good too be true.
The hotel is what you pay for so if your looking for cheap, fridge that don't work, awful breakfast, super skinny walls, invasion of bugs by the pool (should have known its in the
name "Orkide Hotel"), non changing of linen and a smell that you would only describe of the word musty(probably used that word about 5 times, an I'm 32) then come on down cos this is the place for your next holiday. BUT!!! the guy that works at the pool bar is v Gd and the staff are quite helpful and its location is Gd. It just wasn't what we were expecting...shame.

Just returned from 10 night stay at the Orkide hotel and was very happy with the poolside bar and the standard of service received from Erdal and Oktay and the rest of the staff.
Food was excellent and more than you could eat, We ate there all but one night of our stay.
Location is spot on and size of hotel is such that you can very easily get talking to other guests.
Rooms are basic but adequate and are cleaned on a regular basis.
Would certainly return

This was our first visit to the Orkide and we would definitely recommend it. We had originally booked another hotel down the road but when we arrived there, they had messed up our booking so we had to find another hotel - at 5am! A Turkish friend took us to the Orkide and luckily they found one room for the three of us, which was basic but clean.
We only intended to stay for one night, but the following morning we met the owner and he encouraged us to stay for the rest of the week by offering us an amazing price, for 3 separate rooms including breakfast and air conditioning. So we had a proper look at the hotel and discovered its charms - nice pool area, restaurant/bar, really friendly staff who speak good English, and a decent Turkish-style breakfast (tip for English visitors - you may not be very keen on the tea that comes out of the machine, but you can get a mug of Tetley tea at the bar!). We agreed to stay and enjoyed a lovely week at the Orkide.
The original hotel we had booked was all-inclusive, but really in Marmaris you don't need to do that because there are so many good restaurants and bars to choose from and everything is cheap for us - this includes the food and drink at the Orkide, which was lovely. The only comment I would make on the food is that it would have been nice to have a few more light, healthy options at lunchtime, e.g. pasta salad etc, and maybe some more fresh fruit. We ate there at night a couple of times too. Try the smoothie cocktails with added alcohol!
As I said, the rooms are basic but comfortable and clean, and while the general decor of the hotel is a little dated, again it is kept clean and has everything you require. Any minor problems we reported - new lightbulb needed, dodgy lock on bedroom door - were swiftly fixed by the staff. On our last day we did not have to leave the hotel until 8pm because it was a night flight home, but we were allowed to keep one of our rooms all day so that we had somewhere to shower etc before leaving.
The hotel's location couldn't be better - it's just off the main seafront 'strip' so you don't get too much noise, but within a couple of minutes' walk there are many bars and restaurants plus a little shop selling beach stuff, souvenirs, snacks and drinks. And it's at the opposite end of Marmaris from the notorious 'Bar Steet' area (although not too far if you did want to go there!)
The staff were always happy, helpful and friendly, even bringing our drinks to us at the poolside once we'd ordered at the bar or helping us to move our sunloungers, and calling us taxis when required. Being a small, family-run hotel, there is a really nice atmosphere, and our fellow residents (mostly English, a few Russians) were also friendly.
It happened to be my birthday during our stay, and the staff must have noticed me opening some gifts. When I popped up to my room, they came over to my friends and said "Why didn't you tell us it was her birthday, we will organise a surprise!" We had already planned to go to another restaurant for dinner but the staff told my friends to bring me back to the Orkide by a certain time, which they did. We arrived back and were having a drink in the bar when suddenly the birthday song came on the stereo and the staff appeared with a cake, loads of sparklers and even flaming torches! I have never seen anything like it. It was a lovely surprise and typical of the hospitality at the Orkide!

Room Tip: If you get a sea view room, the views are amazing!

Prices are good and the food as well.
