hotel was lovely very modern, we had a room with a pool view, and was in the new side, room was clean and tidy maids came everyday and was very friendly. Most staff members were very rude, especially the guy who works on the reception on a night time extremly rude and didnt want to listen to any of your problems (which we had many) staff spoke little english, apart from the bar staff.
The food really let this hotel down, breakfast was rubbish, perfect if you was german, dinner was some sort of meatball in a sauce of chicken wings, with cold pasta and cold chips, 99% of the time the food as cold. the only decent meals we had whilst staying at the hotel was the chicken kebab they did every friday, we eneded up spending most of our spending money on eating out, otherwise we would starve.
Drinks were ok, you could drink as much alcohol as you wish but it would not get you drunk at all.
Mosque goes off everyday fives times a day starting at 5 in the morning, was not a problem as we knew this when booking.
Thomson rep Farrah was really helpful listened to all our problems.
If you stay at this hotel and dont like the food my advice would be to go to Yes Sir restaurant food was gorgeous and very cheaps, and was buy one get one free all night on alcoholic drinks, staff were very friendly aswell.
Ifyou have booked with thomson let me warn you about one thing, we booked the Dalyan Check out trip for our last day, cost £45 each, and promised you a nice relaxing, stressfree last day, i can tell you this, it was the complete opposite, food was rubbish at the restaurant u got taken to for your dinner, mudbaths wasonly there for 45mins, and was overcrowded and was like dirty water not a mud bath, then wentonto turtle beach which was the highlight of the day, then onto a what they promised a 4* hotel to have a shower, have a meal then get picked up to the airport, was not 4* and was not hotel they took us to self catering apartments,room was disgusting food was aeful it was just put staright in front of you and got no choice, do not book this trip!
please read other reviews and 2weeks was far too long to stay at this hotel 1week was enough

You really do get what you pay for, although we heard so many horror stories from Brits staying at other hotels, I think we were the lucky ones. The actual hotel is nice and the rooms are big and cleaned to a good standard. They have a pay tv package for £10 for the week which is worth getting. The pool is on the small side and the slide is really just for kids.  Right that's the good stuff, now the bad. The hotel staff are very unhelpful and unfriendly. Don't get a map from reception as they charge you and it's a terrible map!  The food is boring, bland, repetitive and processed. We ate out a few times as we got really bored of the food. If you want some really nice Turkisk food go to Minder Oscabar which is on the road to the beach.

Tips:
To get to the beach go out the hotel, walk to the right and take the first right (usually taxis parked on the corner). Its about a 15 min walk to the beach and you'll go past Minder restaurant which is good. Once you hit the main road cross over and walk down the side road to the beach.

To get to Marmaris town centre take the number 2 bus from outside the hotel.

At the beach the sunbeds near the Malibu beach bar are free and the staff are friendly.

On Wednesdays you can get the orange bus to Icmeler for the Market. You can get the bus from the main road near the beach or the town centre.

Don't eat at any if the nearby restaurants, all very average food.

The best excursion was the off road buggy ride. Really great value at £10 each and it's really good fun. Get prepared to get covered in mud head to toe!

Just arrived back Hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly & the bar staff were just manic.THe food was disgusting Chicken Pasta & meetballs every day with chips. All the food was cold even when the resturant had just opened with nowhere to reheat it.Not much choice of salad either.We had a room at the back which i dont think has been modernised yet a small balcony and a large brick wall.The Mosque next door only called out 5 times a day and the not for very long.Sun beds were a problem ( as anywhere never enough)

Room Tip: ask for oneoverlooking the pool area

Got back yesterday and having read some of the reviews before I left feel I should put my honest account. If you have booked to go to Club Viva and are reading these reviews on a regular basis (like I did) then you have nothing to worry about! The hotel was modernised during the early part of this year and our room was immaculate. The cleaner came daily leaving our room tidy.ALL staff were friendly, special mention to Gokhan, George, Denzil and of course Mastafa. They work extremely hard during very long days but always have time to stop and ask how you are. There are those who of course can not speak english but still smiled in your direction. I have always found people treat you as you do them. Yes the music is loud but it does add to the atmopshere and yes the guy in the Mosque does cry for pray at 6am but you are in Turkey!!! The food is OK and I managed to find a meal each day which filled me up. Both my wife and I paid less than £700 for the week which when you deduct the cost of the flight is very good value money. We had a great time and spent time with some remarkable people who I hope will now remain friends. Special thanks to Lol, Sonia, Lee, Kerry, Em, Phil, Lisa, Jess, Bobby, Andrew and the 3 Laurens all for making our holiday very special. Go there with the right attitude and you will have the time of your life.

Room Tip: Go with the right attitude

Just returned from club viva and would not go back again.The hotel was very modern and the rooms in the new part (we stayed in room 415) was very nice. But the food at the hotel is very repertive, chicken. pasta and meat balls in every way shape and form breakfast was a joke,, but there is a bar just up the road where you can get a full euglish breakfast for £1.99 and its very nice.some of the bar staff are only intrested in serving you and been friendly to you if you are a young and single female....the noise from the bar was going on till 2to 3 in the morning then the mosque starts at 5.30 in the morning and it is loud.sunbeds think the pray from the mosque was a alarm call for some peole to get up and get there sunbeds signs all over hotel about not putting towels on beds befor 8 and they would be removed after an hour if not used is rubbish towels left on some beds all day and not moved...the entertainment is poor..
would not reccomend club viva,,

We arrived at 5am and were greeted by friendly staff, which we found continued throughout the holiday. We read the reviews before we went so were aware of some of the down sides !!!
Yes the Mosque next door did wake us at 6am every day, and their loudspeaker pointed towards our hotel, but after a while you do seem to be able to ignore it to some degree. It became a bit of a joke after a while, and he became known as wailing Abdul. But, after all we were in Turkey !!!
The food was good, BUT, there was not much variation. That again became a bit of a joke. Chicken & more chicken !!
The pool area was slippery, but so are most pool areas ??
We got what we paid for, and enjoyed our holiday. In our case the flights were a bigger problem than the hotel. We had night flights both ways !!!
Overall, the hotel was clean, the staff were friendly, the food quality was good !
Pete Ex.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the pool, unless you like loud music until midnight !!
