“WE LOVED THE EKIN!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

Had a fabulous 10 day late minute holiday here! The accommodation was brilliant for a two star budget Thomas Cook Hotel! We had the bed and breakfast package which consumer of a continental style breakie (eggs, bread, jams, cucumber, tomatoes, olivies). The staff at the Ekin are awesome and are a credit to this hotel (Izzy and Apel)!
The food, drinks and snacks were all very good price, There was a supermarket next door to the hotel run by a turkish lady, she was lovely and vey helpful and her prices were very good!
If you leave the hotel and run right there is a hut where you can book trips. A man called sunny works there and has great prices. £10 for the all inclusive boat trips, £10 for Go karting and £15 for quad biking! all of these trips were very good value for money.
There are some lovely bars and restaurants down on the front of marmaris and bar street is defiantly worth the visit.

I would return to this hotel tomorrow given the choice. Perfect holiday

THANKS EKIN!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for pool view or to be above the main reception and you get wifi in those rooms!

Our first trip to Turkey on our honeymoon was made extra special by the people of Ekin Hotel. The staff are warm and friendly, often cheeky, always happy to help. They even helped us on how to deal with the locals.
All home cooked food and generous portions. If they don't have it in they'll go out and get it.
We highly recommend Ekin Hotel to everyone, also Oscar, across the road, to book your daily trips and adventures.

Room Tip: Any. They're all good.

Travelled from Manchester just me and my 14 yr old lad. From the second we arrived at something close to midnight. We were met by friendly helpful staff & manager who carried our suitcases up for us.

We were soon back down to have abit of a nosey before we went to bed due to the late hour. We made it back to our room 2 or so hours later after meeting / chatting to other guests and Mo the Manager.

To quote my teen lad that was the best 1st night of a holiday ever. The week just got better!!!

Yes the rooms are basic and small but impeccably clean.

I took a tablet with films for what I anticipated a soon to be bored teenage son.

No - we both had a fab week. Great company, great staff met lots of new friends.

And if my typical teenage lad had a great week - That mean's a happy chilled mum.

Your holiday is what you make it.

Fab home cooked food as well

And to Joy if you read this Thanks for the socks.

Would defo return & recommend Ekin Hotel

I really enjoyed my 5 days in Marmaris, unfortunately it was crazy hot and the air conditioning wasn't the most amazing piece of equipment ever but it helped.

the staff were very nice, sometimes a little to close for comfort but i was accepting that might be part of turkish culture. the drinks were limited but enjoyable, pools were amazing, room was cramped on the top floor, kept hitting my head off the roof.

Food however was GREAT, i really enjoyed the food in the restaurant, we ate there almost every night. My fiancée really enjoyed herself and we have to thank Ekin for that.

I would recommend this as it was cheap but fairly priced!

(ours was done through thomas cook.)

3rd trip to Marmaris....best holiday yet!
I travelled on my own this year and was worried I might get lonely. This was not the case, not only did I manage to meet some great people poolside, the staff themselves were also very welcoming and friendly. Even took us out to all the recommended spots Marmaris nightlife had to offer.

Some people have placed negative reviews of this place...why? I dont know!
The rooms are pleasant you have access to both lovely clean pools and have a nice poolside bar. The hotel is family run and they really are lovely people! I observed them helping out one family with their excursions making phone calls even though this was not their concern, you dont find that many places in Turkey!
Short walk to the beach shops and nightlife all around! :)

My only negative quote for this review is breakfast does have a very limited selection. But Turkey is cheap enough to eat out if not satisfied with the food!

This hotel is golden for the price and I have every intention of returning next year!

IRON DUCK x

Room Tip: Any room would be perfect :)

Just returned from Ekin after 2 glorious weeks. This hotel may be classed as 2 star but u don't recognise that when u are there. The rooms and balconies are spacious and extremely clean. All the staff are amazing and make u feel so welcome. The food is lovely and presented at a very high standard.
Very nice pools (2) and jimmy does an excellent job looking after them.
Big shout out to Izzy, Apple, Jacko, Mu, Angel and Bossman who are all lovely people.
We went as a party of 3 and ended up a party of 20+. Made friends with so many wonderful people who made this whole holiday something very special.
Can't wait to see everyone again.
