I stayed at the Malibu Beach from Nov 1st-8th 2013. I was on my own and was really lucky to be allocated a 1st Floor room (106) with a brilliant view out across the bay of Marmaris.
The hotel is right on the beach and it's probably about a 25min walk along the sea front into the centre of the city. If you go the other way there's a great scenic walk of a few kilometres to the adjacent resort of Icmeler. Alternatively it's just a couple of minutes walk to the local buses to Icmeler, Turunc etc.
When I visited the hotel was really quiet as it's out of season. Note that nearly all the tourist excursions end by mid-late October so I really wish I'd had gone earlier in the year. At this time of year there is of course no entertainment at the hotel so in the evening I went to the local nearby bars DOST and YUNUS. Drinks are pretty cheap - a beer being not more than 8 Turkish Lira. People were all really friendly.
The hotel staff were very efficient and friendly. The room was kept spotless. Breakfast was a bit limited (probably because there were so few guests) but there was always plenty of fresh bread, jams and cheese etc. plus hard boiled eggs and plenty of drinks. Mehmet was always on hand to help in the dining room. I was on half board but with so few guests they actually served the courses straight to you. Jimmy, the service manager, organised this very well. The food was an excellent quality but choice was limited.
My room had all you needed. I really liked the safe that was provided free of charge. There was a mini bar and if you used that you had to pay in Euros. Bed was hard but comfortable.
Overall I thought the hotel was really good and will hopefully return in 2014.
