“Another Fab Holiday”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

I visited the Club Excelsior from 8th June - 22nd June & what else can I say apart from it was fantastic.

It was lovely to have Lisa back on the Team this year. Lisa & the other Entertainment staff work so hard to keep the kids & the adults entertained.

The waiters are all friendly & they go out of their way to make sure your holiday runs smoothly.

One thing I do recommend is getting the T.O.M for 750TL & you will receive 20% discount of 500TL & receive 10% discount. This is brilliant as you never need to carry money around with you.

The food in the Hotel is really nice with a great menu selection & I would definately recommend booking the BBQ night which is good value for money.

All in all we had a fab holiday & will be returning in June 2013

Got back today it hasn't been without its problems but the positives far outway the negatives. 5 adults and 2 children.Firstly we got on the coach to marmaris from dalaman airport stopping in a rest stop on the way where you can buy food or souvenirs or use the toilet. we were taken to the hotel which turned out to be the club excelsior jr which was not what we booked we had problems getting help due to the lateness 2am but at 8 am we managed to get help from thomas cook and were moved 12 noon to club exclesior. The room is basically kitchen/bedroom, bedroom2(doublebeds in both or 1 double 2 singles) and bathroom , the kitchen has a microwave, kettle, fridge and toaster. Kippa is 10 mins walk from the hotel the turkish tescos you can buy anything you want or get a taxi from the booth out front of the complex shop. I recommend the golden moon restaurant the staff (max and ebo) are great especially with kids, breakfast was £1.90 here and yummy. snacks you can get from club excelsior bar if your intention is to spend the day round the pool, ice creams are lovely in the heat 2 tlr for 1 scoop 4tlr for 2 scoops, and slushies are available. i'd take english money as the exchange rate is pretty good in turkey change some in england if you want and exchange the rest periodically at the market next door to the activity booking place. Many activities the jeep safari is great dirty and wet but lots of fun for the family. i went fishing very dissappointed didnt catch anything and scuba diving was good day but was put off by just getting in the water with no training once down under the water brilliant.club entertainers jack and carlos great very friendly . If you looking for a tattoo head down to the tattoo shop nextdoor to the 7 brothers restuarant susan is great and will help you with anything she was based in the hotel until recently . For shopping try the bazar on the beach front opposite the marina off putting is the constant call to coming into a shop but just say no thanks same goes for the bars and restuarants ( they are not supposed to hassle you the place can get shutdown for 5 days if caught), haggle if you can and if buying perfume do not buy off the street and be careful in the shops majority sell fakes which lose the smell 5 mins after application. the temp was between 25 and 48 degrees cels so hot . the complex has a kids club.There is a bbq and cabaret on a wednesday and pool party and karoke so lots to do. the worst thing was the delay coming home 4 1/2 hours is not fun to sit at the gate. looking forward to going back next year.

We stayed at the Exelsior Jn for 1 week in May. Unsure of what to expect, we both really enjoyed our holiday. Rooms are clean enough and maids are in every day. Beds were really comfy which was a bonus also. Maids leave lovely litlle shapes with the towels and on your departure left a goodbye note. We had heard so many mixed reviews from folk that we tried it ourselves and are glad we did. The people in the hotel at both the junior and main hotel were brilliant, nothing ever too much trouble and they were always smiling (regardless of all the hours they put in). Would also recommend Sams Tattoos if you want a tattoo done. Mine is the best ive got. We were self catering but the food at the hotel was cheap enuf and also good quality. would recommend the turkish bbq - brill night! Also close by, Trotters does great food and the waiters there were brill, mention to TJ who also works at the Ibrox bar.Trotters run a VIP service from restaurant to bar and also back to your hotel. Great night at the Ibrox bar, totally chilled out and made to feel like one of the family. Have booked up and am returning in Oct for 11 nights. CANT WAIT!!

Myself, my girlfriend and 2 teenage daughters have been to the Exelsior for the last 3 years in peak time August and we love it. The rooms are good, adequate and spacious enough for a family of four, comfy beds and towels, bedding etc changed daily.

We only ever ate at Exelsior for the breakfasts and lunch, so cannot comment on the evening menus, but any food we have had is tasty and cheap enough, from full breakfasts to a simple burger and chips. Beer is nice and cold and decently priced, and the happy hour BOGOF and bingo between 8 and 9 is a good start to the night before you head off into town if you choose to do so.

Pool games to keep you entertained during the day, or just chill if you dont want to get involved, nice 1 lira lollys from the bar, or other branded lollys like magnums etc for not much more.

Buy the T.O.M wristband from the reception for discounted drinks and food, you put an amount on a wrist band that can be scanned by the staff before you order, and 20 % is knocked off your bill, they give you a receipt, and that explains how much you have left on your TOM and what discount you have just received etc, it can be topped up anytime during your holiday, and believe me after 2 weeks of drinking and eating you can save a lot of money... it can also be used at the local shop, so theres no messing about exchanging money and also ideal to send the kids to the shop with.

Local shop is good, selling a lot of English branded foods and chocolate, and is all reasonably priced.

Overall, whether your a family or a couple, Exelsior is a really good hotel and the staff make sure you're well looked after, especially Tom the Manager and Jack the waiter and Lisa who does the entertainment.

Me and my husband came back form Club Excelsior on 11th June 2012, first time in Turkey therefore we were a bit anxious but this holiday completely won us over,we can't wait to go back.Hotel and staff are absolutely excellent!!! Staff not only make you welcome and are helpful day and night but also make you so involved that you feel like you've been coming there for years. Housekeeping ladies kept our room lovely and tidy, new towels every day and lovely designed towel decoration on the bed,rooms have air con and it restaurant serves lovely food and at reasonable price and entertainment team are absolutely fab,have not laughed so much in years :)))).Selma at the reception is extremely helpful and will give you any info about directions and advice within seconds(much better than men with moustaches).Overall I can say that we had fabulous time and would recommend this hotel to anyone with or without kids,you will have a whale of a time at Club Excelsior.

Room Tip: If you would like to have a lay in during the morning choose a room at the back of the hotel.

We were booked into the Club Turquoise which was awful so we booked ourselves into the Exelsior, the reception staff were fantastic and gave us a good rate.

The rooms are just what you need for a self catering holiday. The maids were great and always had a smile on their faces, they changed the towel every day. Rooms are equiped with a fridge, cooking ring, kettle and microwave. there is a tv in the living area (payable at a small charge) and a tv in the bedroom. Air con is available in the living area (payable) and air con in the bedroom which is free. There is also a safe in the room (small charge). The reception has an iron which you can loan for £1 per hour.

the daytime and evening entertainment was fantastic, the team and staff always had a smile on their faces and nothing was too much trouble. Lisa, Carlos, Jack, Akin, Ozzy, Ahmet, Yusuf and Dodo to name a few of them really made our holiday.

The food is fab, you get chips with everything - even the breakfast which was lovely and priced 6 TL. I can recommend the Turkish Special and the Chicken with Mushrooms and their pizzas are fab too.

there is a night club called Aquria Blue which allowed your kids in as well.

We are looking to return in October. We went as a customer and left as friends

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view
