“Fabulous Holiday 8th - 15th Sept 2011”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

My boyfriend and I have just come back from a week all inclusive at the Cettia Beach Resort Hotel, Marmaris. We had a lovely week . The hotel was extremely clean ,staff were very friendly and the location of the hotel couldn`t have been nicer. It is set virtually on the beach as stated in the brochure and there were plenty of sunbeds even though the hotel was full. Clean beach towels were available each day which saves on your luggage allowance. The location is well away from the centre of Marmaris, so if you prefer a quiet location where you can have a stroll along the sea front each evening without too much loud noise the Cettia Beach is ideal. The sea was warm, calm and very inviting.
The food was always plentiful but could have been a little hotter, this is our only complaint. It was probably based on German food but we never had a problem finding something we liked. Plus they cooked a daily special each evening outside on the terrace which is worth a look at before making your choice.
Our room was a twin but they had pushed the beds together as I had emailed them prior to departure asking for a double room . The room was only lacking a kettle, so if you are a tea-aholic like my boyfriend we suggest taking a travel kettle with you as there are fridges in the rooms for milk etc.
Overall we had a fantastic , relaxing week together and would certainly recommend it to anyone.

We stated for 2 weeks at the beginning of September! The hotel is well suited to couples!
Well the rooms! We had a side sea view overlooking the road, some people were saying the road was very busy but didn't bother us!
The room was very spacious and tastefully decorated! Carpeted floors to which I would prefer tiles! But the carpets were hoovered daily! Towels were changed daily and the housekeeping staff worked very hard and were brilliant at there job!
The pool/beach- well to be fair the pool is small but then again the hotel isn't huge! There are plenty of sunbeds to go around on both the beach, jetty and around the pool area! We never had a problem getting one no matter what time we woke up!
Food/drink- plenty of fresh salads to choose from! Chicken served every meal time! The snack bar served chips/burgers if you wanted them in the afternoon! There is always something to suit everyones taste! Did not have a problem with the drink, the beer is efes, soft drinks are named brands also!
Entertainment staff- well both honey and ozzy work very hard at keeping everyone entertained! Honey is a fantastic girl who very chatty and enjoys a laugh! They asked if you wanted to join in during the day and if you declined they never pestered you! Always very friendly and helpful!there is always something going on in the evening (maybe not to everyones taste)!
Would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends!

Me and my boyfriend have just spent a week in cettia beach which we thouroughly enjoyed. The weather was brill, the hotel was always clean and tidy and the hotel room was changed daily with fresh sheets and towels. There was always a good range of food everyday but we did find the food could be cold most of the days. The entertainment staff were friendly but could be very pushy during their activties as all we wanted to do is sit around the pool, I also found when guests had visited the hotel the entertainment staff would talk about them and it wouldnt always be on a good note. Overall we had a good hoilday and would return again especially for the weather :-)

It was definitely the best hotel in this area, though rooms facing the street are quite noisy
The food was very good, rooms well furnished, the hotel was modern art style, very elegant

Room Tip: do not accept rooms facing the street

We have just returned home from a week at the Cettia Beach Hotel and for us as a couple looking for a relaxing week we could not have asked for more. All staff were friendly & helpfull and the hotel is spotlessly clean. Food is great with plenty of choice & there Turkish theme night has brilliant food & entertainment. We found the location excellent as you were out of the main hub but it was easily accesible if you wanted to party the night away. Beautiful location right on the beach with guests having sole use of the private Jetty which was a god send in the 42 degree sweltering heat. Special mention to Ozzy & Honey for there good humour and entertainemnt- nothing was any bother to them and they were such good fun. Great hotel & good value for money- hope to return in the future & have recommended to friends already

Spent two weeks at the Cettia Beach hotel from 18 August – 1 September with hubby.
Had a fantastic time. The staff – Sultan the chambermaid, room was always immaculate. Mehmet, the barman by the pool, remembered everyone’s tipple! The restaurant staff always willing to help always smiling. Ramazam the burger man, he was brilliant and always happy. The entertainment staff Ozzie and Honey. Honey worked tirelessly all day, goodness knows where she gets her energy from. She managed to get the guests to mingle with each other we had such a laugh with her, and we are a middle aged couple (though we think we are still young) Dave my other half took part in everything, he had to come home for a rest!! Salim the manager was always on hand and took time to speak to the guests, he was there to wave us off at the end of our stay.
We had a sea view room, it was very spacious and clean, the bed was so comfortable and the power shower was brilliant. Watching the sun rise from the balcony was something else, the view is beautiful!

The food was very tasty and hot, something you don’t often get from AI, put on 8lbs during our stay, could also have had something to do with the Vodka & Cokes and Efes we consumed!
First week - no problem getting a sun bed by the pool, we had a leisurely breakfast then strolled out with our towels, most of the guests were Dutch, lovely people. The second week was a little different, the Brits had landed and started reserving beds , six or more at a time. Don’t blame the Germans any more we have overtaken them!
A big hello to Frans and Gerdie, Henk and Helen.

Will we go back? Definitely!

We have just returned from 10 days at Cettia Beach Resort. It is the first time we have been on such a cheap all-inclusive holiday.

Positives: The recently refurbished hotel is clean and modern, with towels changed every day and friendly housekeeping staff

The public areas indoors; although not fully air conditioned - are very tastefully decorated and relaxing

The Turkish baths are lovely, a real must-do in the hotel

The choice of food was far better than we expected and also very reasonable quality, the BBQ and Turkish foodon the Monday night to be recommended

Many of the waiters are very happy friendly staff who are keen to help wherever they can.

Not so positive: Our air-conditioning was broken on arrival and in 47 degrees+ was very uncomfortable we asked for this to be addressed a number of times and only when we started really pestering the staff did they come and have a look at it

The pool area is very small, and it is easy to tell that the hotel is aiming for maximising profit making rather than creating a memorable holiday experience and they have crammed as many people into the hotel as possible. The few sunbeds around the pool area are far too close together and difficult to ‘claim’ due to the volume of people; as are the sunbeds on the (tiny, stoney) beach and jetty area.

There was dance music was pumping out of speakers from 10am - 1am every day - it was impossible to get away from except to go and sit indoors

Constant sales pitches every time you walk to the buffet area via the hairdressers and also from people walking down the promenade between the hotel and the beach - totally unavoidable

The entertainment staff are out to get what they can from the guests - we were advised that the bus to Bar Street was free; however on joining the bus it transpired it was 10TL per person - it's much cheaper for 4 people to get a private taxi! The 2 entertainment staff are also very quick to talk ill of guests who had recently left; they constantly make it known that they 'don't get tips' and requesting the guests leave behind their items of clothing/TL for them upon guests departure

The all-in drinks are questionable to say the least along with the miserable outdoor staff - notably the 'Rose' wine - which turned out to be 2/3rds white wine 1/3rd red wine! The cocktails are to be avoided; even those you pay for. And the beer, although it says Efes - is not Efes. The swarms of wasps around the outside drinks dispenser at the bar were absolutely disgusting and we actually saw the barman scoop a wasp out of someone's drink with their hand and hand the guest his drink...

In saying all of this – I really think this hotel was just not to the standard we like and had anticipated, which given the price was perhaps naive of us. Almost every other guest in the hotel seemed absolutely delighted with the resort and had no complaints. So I do think it’s down to personal tastes, although we wouldn't recommend to our friends or family and we will not be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for beach facing room - on a higher floor
