Just back last week from 2 weeks in the Golden Rock and had a great time. This hotel has only been opened since May 2012 and although I could find a few faults overall it is a really good hotel (not a 5 star but it wouldn't take much to fix any problems). Location is fabulous right on the beach with fabulous views, private beach but it's very stoney rather than a sandy beach. Rooms are really nice, try for a room with poolview then you will also get a seaview. We had paid extra for a side seaview as there was no option for a full seaview and when we arrived in the early hours of the morning found that our room, although lovely, overlooked both the road and the sea but was closer to the road view, my husband spoke to receptionist next morning and requested that we were moved. It was pointed out to him that they had given us a room as requested but they moved us without problem as the hotel was only half full.
Food was really good although predictably repetative, always plenty of choice and good quality. A special word of thanks to our waiter Ilyas who looked after us so well during our stay.
Drinks were fine probably weaker that we are used to but that meant that we had fewer hangovers. We mostly stayed in the lobby bar in the evenings and the staff there are brilliant especially the lovely Ela, Esra and Sadik who made our stay such fun.
The evening entertainment was not the best and was aimed more towards younger people although we did enjoy the turkish dancers, there was not much more that interested us and we spent most of our evenings in the lobby which I feel would benefit from some kind of entertainment to keep the more mature guests happy.
The animation team were lovely.
The spa is recommended we had a turkish bath, and massage on our first day and I have to say it was the best I've ever had and really good value.
To bring this hotel up to 5 star status would not take a lot, the things we felt should were not up to standard were bedding, no top sheets and just a small cover that was not big enough, no hand soap at wash basins and no cosmetics although we did have a shoe horn and a sewing kit! The safe also had to be paid for which we don't feel is acceptable, we have stayed in hotels before where you paid a refundable deposit and feel this would be a better option.
Overall we had a great holiday and met some lovely people.
This is a really good hotel with more positives than negatives, if I was going to Marmaris again I would certainly stay there again.
