“Amazing place”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

stayed here from the 13th June to 24th June, on arrival we were greeted by the friendly night staff and in our room was a nice bottle of wine and fruit (due to a special occasion) the staff throughout our stay were very friendly welcoming and helpful, we stayed on half board which included breakfast and evening meal the food was of a very high standard and so much choice couldn't fault it in any way, the pool area was kept very clean and sunbeds were available throughout the day, you could also use the free hotel bus to take you to the private beach, we went into town in the evenings which was easy just waited outside hotel for the bus which ran every 10 min, only costing 2 tl, all in all this was a fantastic hotel, very friendly would highly recommend it, although the food was amazing within the hotel we did have a meal out in the harbour and found a restaurant Divella which also did fantastic food, we would just like to thank all the staff for a lovely holiday.

this was a nice hotel. fairly basic but your in turkey. the staff are great especially the guys at the bar and around the pool. we would return in a heart beat. Dont be put off by the distance from the beach they run a shuttle bus 3 times a day and the doma bus comes every 10 min and is 2 TL in to town.

Ignore the bad reviews they are just people who expected to much from a turkish 4 *, the hotel is clean, there is a ok selection of food, shops and restaurants are a short walk away. There is a bus directly outside the hotel that takes you to the town and beach it runs every 15 mins. The pool bar and restaurant staff are friendly and helpful, the bar manager will bend over backwards to help you with anything you need, my partner was ill while we were away, the manger was genuinely concerned and even went to the pharmacy to get him something. You cannot beat the staff at this hotel.

Stayed here 17th June for a week and I have to say it has been my best holiday so far...from the minute we got there till the minute we left we were made to feel so welcome..

The boys round the pool were great ever day they had you laughing about something very entertaining and very helpful...

The service manager Tamer was also very helpful making sure you were happy and you had everything you needed any problems he was the person to see :)

Everywhere was very clean rooms pool the lot all made my stay so much better I would 100% go back there...

Stayed here between 16th June and 24th June! Hotel location is perfect just set back slightly from Marmaris centre, there is a bus provided by the hotel to take you to the beach each day and also a local bus which stops outside which is very cheap and regular to take you to town or anywhere you might like.

Could not have been made to feel more welcome at this hotel. The staff are excellent, they are all so polite and helpful and they make your stay enjoyable. The waiting staff are all excellent, especially Cemil he was always very helpful and remembered our order.
The service manager Tamer was also excellent and always had us laughing!

The food was A+++ always a massive variety, always very tasty, and always loads of it!

The rooms were nice and always spotlessly clean thanks to the lovely cleaner.
I never used the spa but the man who runs it is always entertaining and very chatty.

Literally the only downside to this hotel is the entertainment. The entertainment staff don't seem like they can be bothered at all.
The other staff entertained us more!

Overall a brilliant stay!
We will most certainly be back!
Thankyou

We booked all inclusive for a very good price and had a lovely holiday. The food, although not a huge choice was very good and beautifully presented, the deserts were excellent. This was my first experience dining around the pool on an evening and it proved to be a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. The lads around the pool, especially mehmet and ali, excelled themselves day after day and provided a service the hotel should be proud of. Lots of staff all giving 100 %, apart from the 'entertainment team' who couldn't muster up any enthusiasm between themselves never mind the guests. Overall a very pleasant and enjoyable time made all the better by lovely staff.

Room Tip: All rooms smallish and the same size

We have now been holidaying in Marmaris, Turkey since 2009. Wish we had discovered this beautiful country and people much earlier. In the 6 years we have stayed in Marmaris eight times seven of which have been at the Grand Faros Hotel. We return there year after year because for us the hotel is ideal. It is situated in a quiet area of Marmaris but there are numerous restaurants and clubs within easy walking distance. For those wanting the bustle of the seafront the local bus stops outside the hotel and for a fare of 2Tl will take you into the centrum with the bazaar, restaurants, shops and of course Bar Street for the younger and more adventurous of an evening. Alternatively the hotel provide a free shuttle bus to their sister hotel on the seafront. The hotel itself is marvellous and the staff are polite and efficient making your holiday as relaxing as possible. The pool is not massive by any means but is adequate and well maintained. The hotel is not all glitz and glamour but has a certain charm, the only downside I could note is the lack of storage space in the rooms especially the bathroom if like us you regularly stay for up to 3 weeks or more. The cleaning staff are very efficient and friendly and your room is cleaned daily. The buffet breakfast whilst unvaried is more than adequate whilst the evening meals are very good with the meat and fish being freshly barbecued. No visit to Turkey is complete without a Turkish bath and massage. Whilst the local hamam is only two minutes walk away the hotel boasts a marvellous gymnasium and a superb hamam of its own, Veysel will be only too pleased to explain the facilities available when you arrive. We have the full program when we get there and it sets you up for the rest of your stay. Entertainment is not the strong point at the hotel but the new team are trying hard to make changes and I must admit that this year was the most enjoyable for some time. If you are looking for somewhere as a relaxing base to explore the rest of the Marmaris area then you could do worse than stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: We prefer 5th floor as the balconies tend to be larger, poolside can be noisy of a night.
