Ekin Hotel
Ranked #72 of 234 Hotels in Marmaris
Reviewed 28 June 2010

This was our second stay at the Ekin and again it was fantastic. We had an apartment which was very clean and spacious. The pool area is just lovely. There is a bar and restaurant which serves great food, the service is second to none. The managers are so friendly and make you really welcome. They are always making sure everything is going well for you. The staff are great and cannot do enough for you. Tony, Izzy, Gunay, Mehmet, Osman and especially Halil. The cleaners, chef and kitchen staff should also be mentioned as everyone works hard to ensure you have a great stay. The hotel and apartments are in a great location near to bars, shops and restaurants. 10 to 15 mins walk to the beachfront. The local dolmus stops right outside the hotel which can take you right to the centre of Marmaris to the bazaar and marina area. We also made some lovely friends. A great place for couples and families. This is certainly a place where you will have a great holiday - so much so we did not want to come home!

On booking through our travel agent me and my partner had requested a double bed, however, when we got to the hotel we recieved two singles which we was a bit unhappy about but never the less! Food is good, staff are really friendly, it seems to attract groups of friends and couples more than families! It's a bit of a walk to the beach/main shopping streets and bar street but the buses are regular enough and stop right outside the hotel. Our rep was friendly too and made an effort to speak to us and the hoteliers sorted out our problem with a group of rowdy teenage girls. Very good service, would definately recommend it!

The Ekin is perfectly located for access to the centre of Marmaris, and well served by bus if walking is too much in the heat. Staff at the hotel are fantastic, always smiling, helpful - you feel part of the family. The hotel is kept very clean, and although breakfast is quite basic it's very nicely laid out every morning, and the strong tea is a wake up! If you want pampering Melissa's hairdressers opposite will provide wash, cut, blow dry, great shave for the gents and shoulder massage - a lovely experience. A great place to spend your holiday.

Arrived back just yesterday from our fifth stay at the Ekin. Spent the entire two weeks relaxing by the pool which was just what we wanted. We prefer to go at the beginning or the end of the season (or usually both) as it is a little quieter and definitely cooler - temperatures only got into the forties this time!

There were some new staff this year - no Richard or Mustafa. Izzy is still there and already I am missing him! Halil, Mehmet and Gune are the three new waiters this year but even though it was their first season at the hotel they could not have been more helpful. Muamma, Angel, Bossman, Jimmy, Chef and the others are still there and as always gave us a huge warm welcome.

Met up with people we had gotten to know from previous holidays - it was lovely to see them all again and get to know them a bit more (TFB and fluffy dressing gown to name but two). Other reviewers have said that the hotel can be 'cliquey' but this is just not the case. It is nice to meet people who have been there before, who all feel that the Ekin is 'home from home' but me and my husband always did our own thing and just chatted with the other guests as and when.

Had another great Turkish night - bbq was amazing and the belly dancer and break dancers but on a great show - well worth 25tl for the night.

We have already booked to go back in October and will be booking again for next year as soon as possible.
