We have just returned from a 10 night stay. Overall the accommodation was good and had the potential to be amazing. We loved the adults only element and the peaceful surroundings, also it was a treat to not have to secure a sunbed early in the morning as there were more than enough and everyone was relaxed. Although the hotel is set on a hill there are golf buggies to transport guests to their rooms. These need to be more frequent to avoid waiting around and staff often made us feel a burden for asking for a lift.
The entertainment team became quite tedious with their ill thought out announcements throughout the day and at times it felt like they were talking to children not adults. Guests do not need to be reminded every five minutes that we are staying at ' The Marmaris Imperial!' The resident duo 'The Secret' were dull and appeared to simply be going through the motions rather than performing and entertaining. In fact, they would rarely look at the audience preferring to chat to each other during their performance on the stage. The visiting acts such as the 'golden tones' and the dancers in the amphitheatre were excellent.
Unfortunately the hotel has a severe wasp problem which makes it impossible to eat outside and several guests were stung whilst we were there. The dining room experience left a lot to be desired with poor service and poor quality food. The waiters were unfriendly and not attentive. At dinner we were often chasing a waiter to get a second drink. The food was very repetitive and tasteless, the meat was dry and often contained bones. The desserts were particularly disappointing. The alcohol is definitely watered down as when I ordered a neat vodka the bar man was reluctant to serve it and when I tasted it it was very weak. It would be nice to provide bar snacks e.g crisps or nuts in the evening, as we had to take our own.
It was nice to be able to hire a kayak free of charge and play table tennis. There are also water sports available which are good but a little over priced. We met some lovely, friendly people that we could laugh about the entertainment with!
