We stayed at the Club Cettia apartmets for two weeks in August, a large group of us, five adults, five teenagers and three kids under six (Big Family!), and had a brilliant time.
The apartments are just the right distance from the main center of Marmaris and is very easy to get to, with the Dolmus (Turkish public buses) coming regularly.
The rooms were lovely and big enough for our group, with our four teenager daughters in one and a family of six in another. They were cleaned every day by the maids and towels were always replaced for clean ones. The only fault was that there was no toaster and the only air conditioning was in the kitchen/living room area. Our daughters ended up having to rent a fan for their room is it got to warm for the four of them in the one room. I think the price ended up being something like 25 Lira for the two weeks?
We ended up eating at the hotel bar (Ege Bar) most nights of our stay. Alot of the guests from the Grand Cettia hotel across the road would also eat in the bar, saying that it was alot better! The food was lovely and not as expensive as most of the places in Maramaris! The bar staff, Ahmet, Tin Tin, Emin & Hudo, were brilliant and work especially hard throughout the day and night to try and get everyone involved in the activities, especially getting the guests up the Club Cettia 2008 dance. They even went as far as to organised a birthday cake and decorate the bar area for one our daughters 16th birthday!
Tom and Rose, the entertainment team, were always up for getting everyone involved in daytime water polo or quiz and would also get everyone involved in the famous turkish bingo!
The kids club was fantastic the kid’s world team are very friendly and look after the children really well. (The kids seemed to enjoy the chocolate party!)
The pool was always kept clean aswell, however somebody always had to get up at 7 to put the towels down just to save a sunbed, but I guess that's expected now! There's also a water slide that's switched on a few times throughout the day aswell.
There's a shop right next door to the hotel, however it's a little overpriced, so head to the one just opposite right next door to the hairdressers. Alot cheaper and the owner also does a great rate on exchanging money (the best we found in the area.)
Overall the apartments were great and staying at Club Cettia actuall felt like like were having a holiday. We would definately stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.
