I have just come back from marmaris this morning 4th July after 11 days at the grand ideal premium. We booked this after spending a week here last year which we thoroughly enjoyed , however this time I feel the experience was not of the same standard. The room we asked for a week before departing on advice from travel agent em did not get, we were on the opposite side of hotel from last year rm 352 and the standard of room was not as good as last year when we were in 161 over the dining room. The rooms are dated but clean, maid service changed towels everyday. The staff especially bar staff were not as friendly as last year, but the outside areas were always clean and free of used glasses etc. the entertainment team tried there best, but it was the same everyday and at night you could write down exactly what songs would be played prior to the evening starting. The entertainment needs to be looked at, as this does let hotel down. The food we felt was not catered towards the English, having said that there was plenty of variety and was presented well, but the que for the hot counter is very long and a free for all at times. This could be better organised, the food was better last year we felt. There were some unsavoury incidents at the pool area of fighting, and this had been reported but when other people had gone to reception they said nothing had been logged. This I found to be rather odd as more than one person had reported problems. The spa was amazing my wife and I had the Turkish bath, speedie the rep for the spa is brilliant. On the whole the hotel although not as good as last year, was still ok we will definitely be coming to Marmaris again but not to this hotel.
