“Beautiful view over Bodrum and its Marina harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

We have spent 4 days at this hotel with probably the best view over Bodrum, its marina harbour, castle and the beautiful sea. The rooms are comfortable. Our seaview room had a cosy terrace with view to the sea. Althoug there was not direct sea view, but only on the side, we enjoyed this place especially at night time with glittering Bodrum. The city is in walking distance. Nevertheless we took mostly a taxi to get home because this was faster and cheap. There are two nice pools: One with bar and nice lounge music, the other a real 20-25 meter pool for swimming where you can stay mostly alone as most people hang around the other pool. The service was always very friendly. The funny and still correct, multi-language speaking restaurant manager gave us always a good start in the day.

The reason stay at this hotel is that the views of Bodrum and the Aegean from the restaurant terrace and pool are AMAZING. Worth the stay. Overall, the hotel was very nice: chic, well kept, good service. But we missed not having any view from our room, there was no shade at the pool and we had to take a taxi everywhere.

The Marmara Bodrum manages is a beautiful, chic, well-managed hotel in the city of Bodrum. Although the views from the hotel are lovely, the castle and sea-front restaurants and shops are not within walking distance. In fact, the area around the hotel is mall-like and characterless--it could be "anywhere USA". The breakfasts are excellent--the lunches and dinners less so. Having travelled to Turkey many times, the latter meals do not make use of the amazing possibilities that Turkish cuisine offers. For example, the meze platter is really not up to par at all. The main pool is lovely, although why there is non-stop muzak is questionable. After a while I found it really grating. If we want to listen to music, most of us have our own ipods. A real plus in this hotel, is the boutique. I was suprised at how beautiful their handcrafted items are and bought many things to bring home. This shop was much nicer than any I saw in town, which unfortunately seems to model itself on all things American. I have seen Bodrum change over the years, and if the city-planners are not careful, they will end up with the worst of Miami Beach. Very sad. In any case, the hotel personnel are lovely and I would with all said issues with the hotel specifically, and Bodrum in particular, return.

Room Tip: A view of the castle.

We chose this hotel on the strength of the reviews we had read on this website and overall we were not disappointed. Staff friendly but not obtrusive, room clean and comfortable. Breakfast on the shady table overlooking Bodrum harbour was a lovely experience.
Two small niggles| firstly lack of shade. At the main pool there is virtually no shade at all. If, like us, you prefer not to share your pool with families, the Olympic pool offers tranquility but... only 4 sun umbrellas and again shade lost by 4pm.
Secondly| credit cards. Half way through my stay, I was unable to use my UK debit card with which I had guaranteed the room. When I called my bank, I was informed that the hotel had blocked THREE amounts totalling more than the cost of a week's stay! On checkout I was assured that the blocked amounts would be cleared immediately but one week on, my card is still blocked despite several emails to the hotel. I have only ever encountered this problem once before, in Prague and it has taken the edge off an otherwise pleasant stay.

We stayed at the Marmara Bodrum just last week and the only problem was that we were only able to stay for 1 night! The property is stunning with a beautiful pool deck and gorgeous views overlooking Bodrum & the sea. The hotel restaurant was fantastic and the rooms were beautiful - spacious, luxurious & very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not want to leave. The hotel is a bit out of town but only about 5 min in a taxi. If you are looking for a relaxing, luxurious vacation in a lovely city - the Marmara Bodrum is perfect!

Execellent place to be in... Specially in case you are visiting bodrum for first time. You are in saaaaaaffffeeeeeee hands.Incredible view and excellent rooms. My stay for 3 days will stay most memorable. Special thanks to Nino and Julia, u guys really rock as guest relation managers. Food was really good, though i was super impressed by local restrurents that i visited like Aquarium in yakalavak, and korfoz in the city centre. The Marina yatch club is a must visit , it serves best food in bodrum and plays live music. Get all bookings done by marmara reception as they recommend the best places. I was impressed by the way we were treated @ all these joints being the hotel guests. I will surely visit you back with my kids.

Room Tip: Choose rooms which are ocean view .

Excellent views and lovely room, consistent with previous posts. I would like to thank the breakfast manager again for retrieving my cap, which I'd left at the breakfast table on one of the mornings.

Room Tip: Our room at the end had a view of both the castle and the town, and had a nice outdoor grassed area.
