I stayed here with my friend for a week in September 2012. Overall the hotel was kept very clean, rooms clean and decorated in a nice modern fashion but rather on the small side. The pool was nice, very clean and big enough to accommodate all guests. The food was pretty ok, quite a good buffet selection. By no means a la carte, but we didnt expect that anyway considering how cheap the holiday was. The hotel entertainment is the usual thing that you would expect so I would suggest going into Marmaris town if you want something a little livlier.
The hotel is very close to the beach (although the san on the beach is pretty gross, you would be better staying by the pool) and its a pleasant 20/30 minute walk into Marmaris Old Town, the Harbour and Bar Street, but you can take a Mini Bus for 1 Turkish Lira if you dont like walking.
The thing that lets this hotel down is the staff. We arrived after an exceptionally long transfer form the airport as the coach driver got lost, and I think a porter must have been covering the hotel desk because he was utterly useless at checking us in. We werent given any information about facilities, werent told about the times that meals were served, didnt get our all inclusive wrist bands until we asked for them after being turned away at breakfast and we had to ASK several times to be given our room key.
A lot of the staff at the hotel are stroppy and rude and a number of times we werent treated as guests, rather as inconveniences. If you can have as little contact with the staff as possible then you will probably enjoy your stay here!
