“great view !”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Located on a hill overlooking the town of Bodrum- the view is just spectacular. Rooms were super, great staff and the breakfast spread was yummy! The hotel's private beach club is about 15-20 minute drive away and operates a shuttle. The beach area was a such a fun place !

The staff was very nice and helpful. The facilities (pools, spa, tennis court, etc.) were great. The rooms were fine but it was very old fashioned and low quality. Among all the hotels I have ever been to, the extras were a disgrace: 10 liras for a small water, 50 liras for a small salad??? And also, if you don't have a car, it takes an hour with the hotel shuttle or 40min + 150 liras with a taxi to get to the hotel beach. That's why do not stay at The Marmara. Do not.

This boutique property is located on a hill overlooking the town of Bodrum. The view is spectacular as you sit on the deck, drifting off to spa music playing in the background. The hotel is in need of some renovation, especially in the rooms. The décor is contemporary and the common areas including gardens and lawns are all maintained beautifully. There are two pools (one a lap pool), tennis courts, and a fitness center. The breakfast and restaurant food is quite good. The hotel maintains a relationship with a private beach club about 15-20 minute drive away and operates a shuttle (if you don't have a car) to take you there. The beach area is incredible, not a sandy, wide beach but a deck built over the water with sunny and shaded areas beneath a trellis. They provide cushions, towels, changing rooms, and seaside food and drink service. The restaurant has its own wood fired oven for great pizza, mezzas, and sandwiches. Bodrum itself is a funky and eclectic mixture of cafes, bars, dance clubs, shops and, in general, fun. Try to rent a gullet, a Turkish wooden sail boat for at least a day to explore the beaches and coves.

Lastly, the staff were all friendly and accommodating making the hotel a definite recommendation and winner.

Bodrum = busy and this hotel is both close enough to enjoy the party and also far enough away to have some peace. Its location on the hill offers stunning views - both at breakfast and for sundowners

The breakfast is sensational and Nino the headwaiter always offers a vivacious start to the day - bubbly with enthusiasm in any one of 6 languages about things to do and enjoy in this wonderful place

Rooms are great and very spacious (we had a corner sea-view suite) and the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. My wife fell in love with the hotel boutique that only focuses on stuff made by locals

The main restaurant Tuti is nice, but can be a bit hit-and-miss and a little on the pricey side when compared to similar restaurants in Bodrum. We ate there twice and the first time was fantastic - the smoked golden salmon was amazing in both taste and presentation, but the second time we had lamb and it was tough and very chewy

Would definitely come back to stay - can't wait

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get a sea-view

This is a quality hotel, high on a hill overlooking Bodrum, Turkey.
We had three nights,bed and breakfast,in a room with a spectacular view overlooking the city and the sea.
The rooms are very well appointed with excellent air con (which is must in high summer)
The bathroom is equipped with a spa bath and strong shower and a large vanity with plenty of room for two travellers.
The bed was comfortable. tv was available, but we did not use,the room had it's own terrace but a bit too hot to sit outside in the middle of the day in summer.
There is a wonderful terrace restaurant for meals and at night the lights of the city make a spectacular backdrop. The meals and wine were of good quality and the service courteous and efficient.
There are two pools. One is for exercise and one for just cooling off. A children's pool also, but there were no children during our stay.there are two squash courts, a tennis court,fitness centre and spa as well as a ladies' hairdresser.
It is a15minute walk into town but the hill is steep and coming back could be a problem to walk, if you are not fit.
We would certainly stay again if in Bodrum

Room Tip: A sea view room is recommended
