It was a fantastic holiday. From the food to the entertainment everything was spot on. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiters and the bar staff, and your plates and glasses where taken as soon as you where finished. The rooms where kept spotless as a maid cleaned them daily. The entertainment team worked tirelessly throughout the day to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. The entertainment on the night is great, and is then followed by fantastic karaoke in the sherlock holmes bar, again arranged by the entertainment team. It was a fantastic holiday and I have already booked to go back next year!!! Thanks to everyone (quick mention to the whole entertainment team, sanj and jack!)

We have just returned from 10 nights all inclusive at the Cettia, we had a GREAT holiday please read on.

Hotel
The cettia is a 25 - 30 minute walk to the Harbour in an elevated position with Dolmus stop almost outside the door.
The hotel is spotless with an army of staff cleaning all day and evening our "family room" was a bedroom with double bed and lounge area with double sofa bed and more important the air con unit! after two nights when the maids realised it was the adults sleeping in the lounge a thin mattress appeared on sofa bed which was a nice gesture even though we thought the sofa was quite comfy.
Small balconey which had air con dischage unit on it so proved impossible to sit on and we didnt have a very good view but it was not really an issure for us as the room was very quite.
Spa was pricey but i treated my self to a massage £20 for 40 mins (haggle)
Hair salon/Beauty treatment £5 for manicure cant got wrong!!

Food
Typical AI caters for "european palates" but always chips, pasta pizza availble at every meal
my kids are fussy but didnt starve, dont expect five star food because you will be dissapointed!

Trips
We booked with "Kevin and Dave " whos agency is opposite The Grand Cettia we booked Turkish Baths, Mud Baths, Water Park and Horse Riding. Great deal with free or half price children, prompt pick ups and safe,fun realiable trips

Shopping
Haggeling is a way of life in turkey and I was sick of it at the end i just said a figure that i was happy to pay and they either accepted it or didnt (99% of the time they accepted)

Any questions i would gladly answer we loved Turkey and will defo return one day!

The both of us (18 years old) went for a week All Inclusive and were very impressed with this hotel. On arrival we were greeted by the fantasic reception staff who explained everything in detail and gave us advice on where things were. The entertainment staff are brilliant, getting everyone involved and are especially polite. The location is great; overseeing marmaris from a small incline with only a short bus ride to the bars and clubs etc. The pool area is kept clean and tidy by regular pool boys and the restaraunt next to the pool is exceptional. The food served is to a good standard with a variety of local and international dishes. The rooms really good, great sizes, very clean and tidy. They are cleaned daily. Families and couples of all ages are made welcome here with great hospitality, there are activites for all ages.
We would definitely recomend the Cettia for families and couples! Great holiday.

Room Tip: book Apartments then upgrade to all inclusive.

went to Grand Ceittia Hotel end of june 2011 with my partner and my nine year old son all inclusive for 7nights. As it was our first time away together wanted to make most of it and enjoy every second, however had a few niggly bits, food was repeative dinner from half seven till around nine and even then it was as if people were on their starting block to get food, all inclusive does not include cocktails either these you pay for. Some bar staff rude no please or thank you and swipe your drinks or food away before finishing (BE AWARE). Room was nice clean and maid everyday with clean towels, sun loungers cannot be left with towels on them before 7am or taken away if you can stay with them till this time. Entertainment staff ok, kids world great got my son out sun for a few hours to an air con room. If you have a late/early flight home you will not get a room but a communial shower where cleaners wonder in an out luggage in a locked room had we known this i would have paid an extra twelve pounds to keep my own room. Out of ten i would give this hotel 7 a few changes are need.

This is a return visit to this hotel as we really enjoyed it last year and in my opinion it has only got better.
Polite and friendly staff as always and very good with kids.
Entertainment staff work very hard to keep the kids entertained all day.

FOOD
Varied selection of food to suit all tastes with a good mixture of local and British food.

ROOMS
Spotless and a very good size with plenty of storage, and clean everyday with fresh towel.

JEWELLERS
A special mention has to go to black jack and gino at the hotel jewellers for their first class service, honesty and sense of humour.
Was fortunate to buy 3 rings, because of their prices I couldn't resist it, and to my delight when I got home their value was nearly trebled. If you like treating yourself I would highly recommend giving the boys a visit, you won't be disappointed.
P.S Gino's patter is worth a visit alone.

POOL AREA
Child friendly pool area with a slide with plenty of sun loungers to go around, but be up early if you want to claim a good spot.

BAR
All inclusive bar with a good variety of local beers and spirits, can get a little bit busy at night during show but you can use the Sherlock Holmes bar, which after 11 o'clock becomes a karaoke bar but you have to pay for your drinks.

LOCAL AMENITIES
Loads of bars and resturants at the bottom of the hill if you want a change of scenery.
A special mention has to go to kevin (tour operator) who can be found directly across from the bottom of the hill to hotel.
Used him the last 2 years and found him to be the cheapest around.
Very professional and honest, and if you block book I can guarantee he can give you a good deal.


SPA
A very professional and relaxing atmosphere with the sole intention to make you feel special, highly recommended

OVERALL REVIEW
You won't be disappointed with this hotel if your looking for value for money and a good location with child friendly staff.
Highly recommended
