Reviewed 29 December 2013

I travelled in 2013 with my family, and my first thought was... OUTSTANDING!

Reception - Absolutely beautiful, plenty of seats and stuff, staff there are wonderful, help with anything, always smiling! You can also see the pool from the window at the far end of the reception, looks lovely!

Food/Restaurant- Food was a bit samey, not much variety, but the food that was there was extremely tasty and was much better than expected! As for the restaurant, it was rather small, but you could sit wherever you wanted and there is an exit at the side of the restaurant which takes you straight to the pool areas.

Pool - Two pools, a large one which was always warm as it was in the sun and the sun was there from about 9am-6pm. The other was a shaded kids pool which was usually cold but warmed up once you'd been in for a while. There are two slides. Pool is a bit small but everyone gets a chance to go in anyway.

Outside of the hotel- it is a beautiful place, a bit of a culture shock. If you get the chance, DO go on the jeep safari.

Rooms- Large rooms. Beds were rather hard though. We got used to them as the week went on. Rooms were gorgeous and there are usually large balconies.

Wifi- There is free wifi but only in reception, if you go out of the reception you will lose connection but the wifi is very fast and works well in reception.

Evening entertainment-There wasn't much for adults. For kids there is a kids disco and my sisters loved it. Afterwards there are various things. The people who work there do try and make it as good as possible but i thought the only good thing they had done was the karaoke on the last night, which was really good but other than that, i didnt really like the entertainment so if you want to go to bed at night but you're drawn to the evening entertainment, you should probably just give it a miss.

Bathroom- Full facilities, shower, bath, hairdryer, sink etc etc.



If you are thinking about coming here, DO IT. THIS HOTEL IS THE BEST I'VE EVER BEEN TO, IT'S ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. C O M E T O B L U E B A Y S P L A T I N U M. !!!

Love you blue bays hotel!!

We stayed there in the beginning of September this year and for the price we paid, you couldn't really fault it. Hotel is pretty modern although our room on the 6th floor was pretty small, but you don't go on holiday to spend the time indoors so it wasn't something that could bother us. There were 2 pools at the hotel, and one of them is particularly busy as it's by the bar. Most of the guests are Polish, Russian and German and the English are maybe at about 20% the most of the guests at the hotel. Food wasn't a disappointment considering it's a Turkey. Variety was really plentiful and apart of the day when they served a kebab at the restaurant the queue was a minimal. There's one a la carte restaurant but we haven't used it so I cannot tell you if it's any good. There's a free wifi in a lobby area. Staff is polite and helpfull, had no problems with them, although couple of them seemed to have a bit of attitude but I suppose it's cause they're overworked and have to deal with drunk and annoying guests... On the other hand most of the guests at the hotel behaved really good which not always is the case in some of the places we spent aour holiday. Overall I can honestly recommend this place to the others.
P.S. Beware of Turks outside of the hotel, they will try to rip you off at any occasion, so better exchange your money as you won't be better of with paying in pounds or euros.
Overall really nice hotel

Stayed at Blue bay last summer

Nice renewed hotel for affordable prices. The food was excellent. Bravo to the chef.

Rooms are being regularly cleaned and checked. One thing you need to pay attention to is about the sunbeds. you have to be quite quick to get one befor 9.00 oclock, otherwise forget your sunbathing. There are too few chairs in comparance with a number of guests.

Myself and a friend stayed here for 5 days near the end of season 25th-30 October, although it was not the original hotel I planned to stay it turned to be a great second choice. The hotel was beautifully designed,very clean, the staff especially receptionist were very attentive despite my disorientation. Although I had a few mishaps I really can not fault this hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Holiday with the family, Brilliant hotel very clean and friendly. We were all inclusive and the food choice was brilliant something for everyone. (I have a very fussy son). Our stay was 19th-26th October, which was a good time of the year very cheap prices and with temperatures in the 30's. We will definitely stay at Bluebay again.
I have marked the hotel down on sleep quality only because of what they called blankets on the beds very odd arrangement.
The location is just about right from the main town, but the lack of sun on the pools from 4pm onwards is a little bit unfortunate

Room Tip: Rooms over the pools are quieter. During the week we were there the restaurant at the front of the h...

Myself and two others stayed at BlueBay Platinum from 18th October - 26th October for one week, near the end of the season and had the most enjoyable stay! From the water features and bubbles in reception, to the horse in the bar and the seashell light-up display outside your door, the small modern touches at this hotel add up to a perfect stay.

The Rooms:
We shared a two bedroom apartment which was very spacious and always spotlessly clean. The décor is modern and well furnished. The beds are very comfy, clean bedding and towels each day. The bathroom facilities - especially the shower are brilliant. The room even has a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, which is an added bonus. Our room was situated at the front of the hotel, we had a large balcony which attracted the sun all day - brilliant as a sun worshipper as the pool unfortunately does not get this all day, so our room couldn't have been more perfect. Yes the hotel does look out on to a road but you can not hear a thing at night!

Pool/Beach area:
Visiting near the end of season the poolside was rather quiet, but we quite liked this! We were able to get sunbeds easily every day, although the sun doesn't stay in one spot so we did have to keep moving our loungers to make the most out of the day. The larger pool attracts sun for the best part of the day, the smaller pool is better towards the end of the day. The waterslides in the smaller pool were brilliant, we are 21 and thoroughly enjoyed these! BlueBay does have it's own private beach where sunbeds are free of charge, just walk round the back of the hotel and across the 'wasteland' to reach it. Drinks can be brought to you on your sunloungers but be warned, these are not free of charge.

Food and Drink:
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Midnight Soup are all served in the main restaurant. You cannot fault the food, there is something for everyone and everything is beautiful and freshly prepared. On our first night the waiters were very attentive and delivered drinks to our table, after that they didn't seem too interested but it's easy enough to go to the bar and get your own drinks. The pool bar serves food throughout the day which is also delicious, burgers, kebabs, chips, lovely if you don't want to leave the sun and can just enjoy at a table by the pool.
The pool bar and bar inside both offered a good range of drinks, always strong and not weakened alcohol. However the one thing I will say is how RUDE the bar staff are, and I know I am not the first to say it. It is such a shame as everything about the hotel is perfect apart from them.

Entertainment:
I know it was coming to the end of season during our stay, but there didn't seem to be anything going on in the hotel. The entertainment team constantly moaned that they wanted to go home, that they were tired and that we should have come in September when the hotel was more lively. They did put on a show at night which was at best OK but nothing occurred in the day. Chicko however was fantastic, always lively, animated and brilliant with guests of all ages and nationalities! The entertainment team do work long hours so it's appreciated that they take guests to bar street every night on a free bus, we did this a few times and really enjoyed ourselves, definitely go with them for a good night out!

Location:
The hotel is amongst some of the finer hotels in Marmaris, on the beach front, near to shops, bars and restaurants, everything you need on the doorstep. Bar Street is not far and is free if you go with the entertainment staff, and I believe not too much if you wanted to take a taxi. Couldn't have asked for a better situated hotel.

Excursions:
A man called Chris came in to the hotel to advertise Scuba Diving, which we booked with him for a very good price. He then sent us across the road to Frank who did a Jeep Safari and Quad Biking at very low prices! Everything in Turkey is so cheap, especially this time of year! DO NOT book trips with your reps, go to one of these stalls and get a good deal at a low price. Scuba Diving is such an experience, I would recommend this to anyone! The Jeep Safari was the funniest day of our holiday, at such cheap prices do as much as you can while in Turkey!

Overall this hotel is beautiful, and it is a pleasure to say to other travellers that you have stayed here. From the second you walk in you are made to feel welcome. Our holiday was fantastic and we will definitely be coming back to stay at BlueBay Platinum and will recommend others to do so too.

In the centre of Marmaris, newly-refurbished Blue Bay Platinum goes the extra mile for guests. Its new sleek exterior, with violet lighting and curvy lines, makes an instant impression.
