“A pleasant week in Marmaris, good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

I booked a 1-bed apartment at Club Exelsior for me and my mum, but we were actually allocated one in Exelsior Junior. We didn't mind, as Junior seemed to be more quiet than the Club building. Can't comment on food as we were self-catering, but the apartment was clean and a range of cooking appliances was reasonable. The apartment was obviously not new or newly refurbishes, but given the very low price we paid, it was certainly a value for money! The pools were clean, and there were plenty of sunbeds available (though I am aware we were there in May, so not high season). The staff at the reception were all, without exception, very friendly and helpful.
There are a couple of small shops right next to the hotel, with a big Kipa supermarket (part of Tesco group!) some 5 mins walk away.Plenty of bars and restaurants around. It's around 10-15mins (depends how fast you walk) to the beach, with the main city centre some 20-25mins walk away, or you can take a bus or a taxi, but we enjoyed the walk.
We also took a couple of trips - one to Turtle Beach and a two-day trip to visit Ephesus and Pamukkale (amazining! don't miss the Cleopatra pool). Both highly recommended! There are many other day-trips and activities you can do, all reasonably priced. We book our trips with a local agent called Uncle John - his shop is very close to the hotel (opposite Club Ilayda), just ask at the hotel reception. He is very friendly,and not hard-sell at all, and his prices are competitive! We also used him for changing money, and his rates were much better than the ones at the airport (don't change any money at the airport!! a rip off.). He also kindly offered to change our surplus liras back into GBP when we were leaving.

Room Tip: if you want a more quite room, ask to be put in Exelsior Junior

Just back from a week in Turkey and loved every minute of it and I must say it was mainly due to the staff at Club Exelsior!
We were staying in the Jr and the staff were fantastic! They had a laugh with you, they had you up dancing and got everyone involved. The rooms were basic but the maids added little quirks such as flower petals on the beds, shapes with the towels etc which is something you dont often get in a self catering apartment.
Most nights we ended up in the main hotel (right next door) for the entertainment as we found it better there than out and about and the guys there done such a brilliant job!
Cant wait to go back and see all the staff again!!!

The hotel was amazing and my kids loved it . There was 7 of us 3 adults 4 children 15,13,11,and 10. They were always busy and were never bored. The staff in the hotel was helpful and nice. Nine days into our holiday we had devastating news that my father-in-law had been taken seriously ill and was in a coma. Thomas cook rep was useless and would not help us to get home, we had to arrange this ourselves. The hotel let us use their printer and assisted us as much as they could. The most helpful people was the agency we had booked all our trips with, Uncle John by the hotel. He gave us a good deal to begin with but when we had to go home we had one trip left, he transferred the money for that trip onto a transfer to the airport for us, and even offered to find cheap flights. Book your trips with UNCLE JOHN...he goes that little bit further than most and is really helpful. Best places to eat...Trotters, Sea Breeze, Flares.

Room Tip: ask for the main hotel and pool view

just returned from the exelsior on the 26th may,we stayed in the exelsior junior which was brilliant.when we arrived it was 4 in the morning and asked the fella on reception for a pool view which he gave us,we stayed in room 3011 which was excellent overlooking the pool so we could keep a eye on the kids playing.
as the title says i was a bit wary about going to turkey but its 1 fantastic place,we did get hassled a little on the front but thats expected as they want your custom,all in all the turkish people are very friendly and very helpfull. the price of food is very cheap as is the drinks except imported beer and spirits,we actually had a full english breakfast for 2 pound and found a place around the corner offering brekkies for 99p.
the staff around the pool are helpfull and especially if you have your wife/girlfriend with you hahaha if you get my drift .
overall would definitely recommend this hotel and turkey as a great holiday wether it be a family/couple/group holiday.
only down side was the transfer from the airport which was about 1hour 50mins,although you do stop at a halfway house to get yourself a drink or bite to eat.
all in all great holiday and great place......p.s. visit the everton bar down the front you wont be disappointed ;-)
