“Brilliant, Cant wait to go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Just got back from an amazing holiday at this hotel! we stayed for a week in September in the main building and it was lovely but wish we had not left. the bar staff were amazing all extremely friendly especially Apo , he's crazy but such a laugh! the pool is big so its not to cramped when it starts to get busy and there's plenty of sunbeds to choose from and didn't have a problem reserving any. The food is good and a good size too, Fanta coke and sprite were all buy one get one free all throughout the day and night for 4.50TL. Cocktails happy hour is 9-10 , the alcohol was quite strong we shared a fishbowl between 2 and could not finish it all. The entertainment seemed good plenty of dances to join in with beside the pool in the afternoons, water activities, bingo, karaoke, darts tournament, quiz and a belly dancer. The apartments are nice , décor is up to date and plenty of towels. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone and I cant wait to book to go back!
Some places to visit and trips to do whilst in Marmaris;
go for a Turkish bath, this is best done before catching a tan or getting sunburnt as I imagine it might hurt a little on sore skin and plus the oils and mud baths help you to get a good tan!
There are a few markets throughout the week I would go to at least one, most stuff is quite cheap but be warned they haggle with you until you buy.
The beach, its about a ten minute walk away from the hotel and there are different bits to the beach so check the sunbeds are free before you sit down as there are spots which are free, with nice little restaurants behind for refreshments or lunch.
Go on a jeep safari, I don't want to spoil this for you but it was the best trip we went on, you get soaked so I would not take valuables unless you put them in a bag that wont leak through! and don't buy the dvd and supposed pictures of you they have took as we spent 60TL on them both and we are on one picture and the DVD doesn't work! But it is an amazing day out so don't miss out on this experience! 'Jeremy Kyle' is brilliant he's a funny chappy.
We went to the AquaDream waterpark but actually found it to be a disappointment as there wasn't many slides there and we didn't spend all day like we planned to, plus they take your picture and ask if you want it for an whopping 50TL per picture! but as it is high in the mountains you do get a good sun spot here and if you want a good tan you should get one up there!
Marmaris is brilliant and the hotel is fantastic so book this holiday and you wont be disappointed!

We arrived aug 20 for two weeks, stayed in mb which has been recently renervated. Double bed and 2 singles ( pull out chairs). Free air con in bedroom, payable extra one in lounge/ diner. Many plug sockets, hair dryer, lovely large shower, also little kiddie toilet/ wash basin. Can't fault the room, and room ( maid) service was outstanding !! Leaving us little decorations made out of towels and dried flowers. 50 + degree sun, fab pool, fun staff/ dances, good food , english breakfast for 7 lira ( just over £2) great location close to nearby shops , bars, we went to parkhead bar which you also must visit, great food and entertainment also:)

I ll try to write a review covering everything but if you need to know more please feel free to contact me.

Rooms - the room we stayed in was a family room in the main building. There was no double bed, 4 singles. 2 of the singles were fold away chairs that were not comfy at all. Free air con in the bed room and the air con in the main room is not. Fridge, TV (3 channels), air dryer and lots of sockets. If you stay around the pool area be prepared to be awake till 12 o'clock.

Daytime entertainment - really good entertainment by the guys. All sorts of stuff going on, games, pool games, bingo etc.

Nighttime entertainment - kids disco, bingo, then something for the adults. The Turkish night which I believe is on a Tuesday is brilliant.

Food and drink - the foods good. We were half board and ate there every morning and night with no complaints. Pint is 7lira and drinks for kids is 4.50lira for 2. Alternatively there is a Tesco that sells 4 x 2 litre bottles of coke for 4.99 lira.

Pools - the main building pool is the largest one with 2 slides and a kiddies slide area. The Junior complex has one slide. You can also use the pool at the end of the road, this has a log flume slide in it. Get free wifi around the pool areas as well which is a nice touch.

Location - is good and just a 5. Minute walk to the town where all the bars and restaurants are. We would normally go to 'trotters' but there is lots of other choice.

Staff - they are good

There's no wow factor about this hotel but they do everything to a good standard and its worth staying for that reason. They have electronic system where you can put money on and get discounts on drink and food, personally didn't use it tho.

Just got back from a 1 week holiday at Excelsior Junior. I had been really excited having read previous reviews on here. However, it was not as I had anticipated. The apartment was very dated. The balcony overlooked a street with a large metal staircase that led to each balcony off the street! Needless to say the balcony was not used!
The apartment was "mopped" one during our stay although it was covered in clumps of hair after the clean. The kitchen area was not cleaned at all.
The hotel reminded me of the hotel from the tv show Benidorm. Most of the clientele could have walked off the show themselves. The daily bingo which was repeated at least twice a day was very annoying with the Liverpudlian caller using the same lines each time!
We had gone half board and the food was actually quite good. However, I have come back home with a tummy upset which I still have after 3 days.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Unless you are looking for a cheap, chavvy Benidorm style holiday. I definitely will not be going back!

Room Tip: Don't go!

Our second stay at Club Exelsior, the hotel has had a really nice refurbishment, the staff are really really friendly especially to the kids ( got to give Volkan a special mention though ) the food is lovely and the Turkish bath staff were great too, we would definitely go again, great holiday.
Must just add that if you want any nice jewellery, the jewellers on site at the hotel are fantastic.
