Well first i was worried after reading the reviews here, i was going to dora beach having in mind that i will be eating eggs for four days..
Well that's not the case, actually it's totally different, the food is ok, with open buffet and 5 main courses, open drinks all day long (some drinks like coke and juice)
The hotel has a lovely garden with a mini bar that offers really good alcohol drinks and shots
The ambiance is the best i saw in marmaris, at night the garden turns into a "night club", everyone dancing and drinking and having a good time
The bad about the hotel is that there is a noisy electricity generator outside so it is better to keep the window closed, but it depends on the location of your room. The other bad thing is the quality of the rooms it's more like a 3 stars hotel than a 4 stars, and the room service isn't that good.
But keep in mind you are not going to marmaris to stay in your room, besides the garden is a great place to spend time.
The hotel has definitely done a review and changed, and i would definitely stay in dora beach hotel next time i go to marmaris.

Having just returned from a weeks stay at the Dora Beach Hotel i can agree with the majority of comments that the main issue with this hotel is the food. The variation in meals is awful mainly chicken, rice or meatballs. Nothing on the buffet is labeled so you have no idea of what is on offer. The all inclusive is staggered at different areas between different times and it is only all inclusive from a small menu everything else is extra.. and a majority is waiter service. Which is good providing you can catch a waiter to bring your order. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The hotel is situated at the end of the beach therefore to go to the town centre or bar street you have to either catch the bus or taxi. However we did eat out a few times and the blackpool bar has a good show Roxy Hart is funny and her shows are varied. Also Natalies steakhouse is good value for money and the steaks are excellent. I would certainly go back to marmaris however I would not stay at the Dora Beach again due to the food and the location.

We have just come back from staying at the Dora hotel and we really disappointed with the food and standard of service we recieved being all inclusive, if this hotel had been self catering then it wouldnt have been such a bad experience because we could of gone out for food! They portion sizes were smaller then child size portions, I ordered scrambled eggs one morning and they sent out a tiny omelette out on a sauce meant for a cup! The service from the staff was very poor, when complaining about how unhappy we were each time we were told by the staff themselves that the managers did not care!! Every day we complained about this problems we had and we never got any resolved! They treated the Turkish guests like royality and the English like dirt! When sitting out in the garden at night time, they were only interested in getting people from outside the hotel in for a drink because as we were told by staff, these customer are paying for there drinks and food!! If you pay all inclusive they have had ur money up front so they dont have to impress you is what we were basically told! Waiters would ignore us if we shouted them and when they did take our orders they would take ages to bring the drinks or would bring wrong drinks and say oops but not go and correct it! In all the hotel was the worse I've ever stayed in and there were many who stayed there who were saying the same! This hotel gives marmaris a bad reputation, the managment should be fully ashame of themselves and should offer a refund to all the unhappy guests!! PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!

i would like to extend my avoid warning to the whole Marmaris resort, that is unless you are someone who loves Benidorm-type excursion in Spain (it basically boils down to drinking tons of beers, public displays of caveman-type behavour, such as puking/pissins in public, regaining consciousness at 13am and fainting again on a beach so you can get properly sunburnt and ready for the night).

As for Dora Hotel, their website is a master for deception. Do not believe their pics, reality is way worse, and service is zero. We booked a double room and got two tiny single beds instead. After complaining, reception promised us they would 'inform' us if a French (double) bed would become available. The room next to us was vacant, and had a french bed, but they did not bother even after we told them.
The hotel itself is old, kind of Warsaw Pact style in the 70's, only been painted over a few times, so overall quality is cheap plastic. If you turn on the AC you cannot talk to each other and you continue sweating anyway. Staff are untrained, mindless and think they are the ones that should be having fun instead. Only a very very few can speak english.
On the top of all this, they had the great idea to start working under our window at 4.30 AM , right after the morning prayer. Huge noise until 6 Am, when they had enough of it, and left us staring at the ceiling. We complained, but they told us 'they will inform us'.
At the end, we planned to stay there 5 days (booked via Discovery tours agency, will never do it again) and we left after the second, forfeiting some 1500 dollars, but what the hell, a holiday has to be a holiday.

Again, AVOID Dora Beach Hotel. If you really have to go to Marmaris, you can find better.

Room Tip: avoid this hotel
