Friendly, helpful, & accomodating.
Spacious, tidy and cleaned daily. The AC works like charm. There's a small balcony that's convenient for any random 10 minute wait or for smokers. The closets are a bit small, not a big deal; also not many channels on TV, but you can get it. if you care for cable while you're travelling, for a cheap price. The bathrooms are also spacious and the towels are changed daily without requesting so. There is only one problem: in the bathroom you can clearly hear if they guy/girl in the other room's bathroom so much as clear their throats!
The food is fresh, tasty & varied - it should be more than satisfactory if you are English or Arab. Breakfast and dinner offer a number of appetizers, a number of main courses, and a number of desserts.
The pool is big enough for such a hotel with enough sunbeds.
The entertainment in the hotel though very humble, is nice. What is great about it, is that they advise you on the best places to go to at night in Marmaris and arrange to take you there via bus!
Overall, the hotel experience was faultless. Keep in mind, this is an adults only hotel; their counterpart, the Blue Bay Platinum is for families, which is a very smart decision on the management/owners' part
P.S.: concerning Marmaris, it's a beach to unwind at a fair price; nothing unique about it. Do not try carting, horseback riding, or serious water sports; they can be dangerous and the safety precautions seem to be substandard. Cleopatra beach is a MUST GO, the mud bath thing is highly over-rated and you spend the better half of the day waiting in a big boat.
