“Amazing Value for Money”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

I have just returned from Marmaris after staying at the Soykan for 2 glorious weeks with my sister-in-law. This family run hotel is wonderful, Mr and Mrs Soykan and their lovely family cannot do enough for you, so friendly. Rooms cleaned every other day with fresh towels, the standard of cleanliness is excellent. Balconys are lovely with room for table and chairs. Pool is very big compared to other pools in turkey. there was always a Soykan family member on hand to help you with anything you needed, and they really went the extra mile to make sure you had the best holiday. The rooms are lovely, and the bathroom is spotless, hot water all day and night. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and we will be returning next year TWICE!!. Also 5 mins from beach and resort centre, location is ideal. Marmaris is a lovely resort, very lively and the people are so friendly, special mention to Serken, Morat and Mustaf, you guys are great, very cheap to eat out, Tasty Bites is worth a visit, just off beach front. See you all in May! and September!.

Room Tip: Any room you get, you will be pleased with.

After speaking to the majority of people staying here, we all had the same impression! When we 1st arrived the hotel was a massive shock after reading all the good reviews. BASIC was an understatement. Our shower/toilet and sink may aswell of been all in one as u could sit on the toilet and have a shower ( quite handy sitting down and shaving your legs) the bedroom was litrally a bed a wardrobe and a cupboard. That is it. BUT.... Its actually quite nice, mr and mrs soykan are really friendly ( speak very little english ) the people around the pool are friendly, it is very clean, its in a great location and its cheap!! ... Its clearly not a 5* hotel it miten even be a 1* but it is what it is! We have got used to it! The aircon gives you a cold, and smells of damp! But... You get what you pay for...

There are good and bad points about this hotel....

Good points:
- hotel is very clean including the pool.
- staff are friendly even though mr and mrs soykan don't speak very much.
- 5 mins away from beach and bars/restaurants.
- free wifi.

Bad points:
- room is very basic, no fridge or kettle for bed & breakfast however self catering there is.
- shower is poor, soaks the whole bathroom which is annoying at times.
- breakfast is absolutely terrible, we only had it once as all it consisted of were bread and boiled eggs, however across the road at angels inn an English breakfast is only 5 lira.
- there are some points around the pool which are in the shade after 2pm which is not very good for sunseekers.
- no entertainment in the hotel at night but the bar is open.

Overall I would come back again if I were looking for a last minute cheap holiday like I did this year.

I stayed here on 28th june 2011 with my two friends. If you go bed and breakfast you will not get a fridge/kitchenette in your room. However self catering you get a full kitchenette in the 2nd bedroom, which is partioned off from the main room leading to balcony. the pool was really big compared to the others in marmaris. the location of the hotel is fab, 5 minutes from the beach/cheers bar/VIP bar etc. I wouldnt stay here again simply because there was no internet or evening entertainment which even the most basic 2 star hotels in marmaris have, I travelled to marmaris every year. bottled water and food is cheaper in the shop around the corner to the right of the hotel. the angels inn is must do, free internet and 25tl for a turkish night with 5 course meal and 1 free drink. (over the road) if like me you have found this holiday for £200pp its well worth it. i wouldnt pay any more though, it is very basic. the cleaner was lovely, rooms were spotless every day, she even makes patterns with the bedsheets. We gave her a bottle of wine before we left as a tip and she was very greateful. I wouldnt reccomend this to familes with young children as theres nothing for kids to do. Couples and groupd would have a fab time!

Room Tip: request pool view

We stayed at the Soykan hotel week commencing the 28th June. At first we didn't know what to expect of the hotel as we booked the holiday at the last minute, with the Soykan being the cheapest accomodation avaliable, and providing it was clean and had a nice pool my girlfriend and I weren't too fussy.

Admittedly, my first impressions of the hotel were slightly tarnished by my experience of the first night. We arrived at 3am so there was no opportunity to purchase air conditioning for the first night. This meant attempting to sleep in a hot room, which combined with a cockeral sounding at 4am (not the hotels fault) and a washing machine running at 8am (I am assuming our room was adjacent to the laundry room as it sounded like it was about to burst through the wall!). A final criticism was that there was no fridge in the room as advertised in the gazetter the travel agents showed us prior to booking, which i think is more of a criticism of the travel agents enquiries rather than the hotel itself.

However, without sounding too negative after the initial night the hotel and it's friendly staff really made a lasting positive impression on me. Ignore previous reviews describing mr soykan as ignorant, he is a friendly and welcoming man, as are the rest of his family. Everything was rather resonable with air con and a safe costing only £30 for a week and a ice cold bottle water costing 1TL. The cleaner deserves a special mention as she is without doubt the hardest working cleaner I have ever seen, thoroughly cleaning each room daily and even making patterns out of bedsheets and towels.

The Hotel is situated nicely in the middle of marmaris, 5min walk away from the beach. I recommend old trafford bar for drinks and food, they are reasonably priced (with 2-4-1 on all drinks), with friendly staff and free wifi internet. Angels inn opposite soykan also did an entertaining show and bbq on the saturday which is well worth the 25TL it cost.

All in all if you want a cheap, cheerful, clean hotel with a hospitable atmosphere (in part as a result of the soykan family but also the other guests we encountered) then choose the soykan!
