“Beautiful hotel without private beach”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 3 days and we did love the interior design of the hotel and the room which was kinda unique. The room was spacious with a beautiful mountain view balcony, but did not have our daily water bottles. The breakfast wasnt that great because we had to pay extra fee for the pancakes or omlettes but the outdoor view is great and also the pool has a beautiful view and a nice garden next to it. The hotels location is kinda close to the marina with 5min taxi drive. Wish we had more days to stay at the hotel.

My wife and I just returned from 5 days at The Marmara Bodrum hotel. The hotel arguably has the best location in Bodrum, perched on a hilltop facing the port and the town, with fantastic wrap-round panoramic views from the pool, restaurant, and the sea-facing rooms. You simply cannot become tired of such views, with a cool summer breeze blowing, day or night. Hotel and rooms are clean and in excellent condition.The staff overall were courteous and always helpful. Particular mentions go to Ipek (Guest Relations) who gave us lots of good tips on locations to visit in and around Bodrum, Nino (always cheerful and all around companion to all the guests at breakfast), and the freindly and helpful Emir (pool/restaurant staff) and finally Erdicin (Food and Beverage manager). Already wishing we stayed more days there, and we would not hesitate to go back.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a sea view room - its well worth it, and especially corner sea view rooms...

Nice view, communal parts and rooms, but room a bit run down (broken AC, worn furniture and bathroom) and noisy. Staff friendly. Food OK but many dishes and wines are not available and you are not warned before ordering.

We loved this hotel . We especially loved the leisure pool (amazing views over Bodrum bay) , the beach (15 minute transfer via mini bus), the gym (well air conditioned), the service (all staff are friendly and polite), and the attention to detail / design.

The hotel is a little further out of town than I had expected - about 15 to 20 TL taxi ride, or a 25 min walk - but on the plus side it is generally peaceful - although there is some traffic noir from the main road near to pool area.

The hotel guests are a mixture of nationalities, mainly Turks, Europeans (not Germans or Russians) and Americans. Not that many Brits.

Generally the hotel is expensive, but I thought they did things well.

Room Tip: I asked for 2 x double rooms with a sea view, and was very happy with what we got.

We stayed there for 3 nights, overall the view and location is absolutely fantastic however we felt the rooms were too small with depressive atmosphere. Decoration and interior must be improved. Plus charging us extra 17 lira, for omelet during breakfast was bit out of order. Never experienced such thing in 5 star hotels. Gotta say though, their PR Niño and his colourful character during breakfast was very entertaining. Extremely funny and charming person, made us laugh all the time. Also Cem from reception was really really helpful and we appreciate the tips he has giving us. Oh and gym and pool were good.

Pleasant hotel, friendly staff and great view. The location on the hilltop may seem far from downtown but its good that it is quieter and relaxing. The rooms are well maintained and friendly housekeeping. I was upgraded to a seaview suite (yes with an actual view of the sea!) which had a seperate lounge with a sleeper sofa.

The restaurant offers fine a selection of dishes. I felt the menu was a but limited in the variety of dishes but enjoyed the beef and the sea bass dishes. For vegetarians, there are some options as well.

The hotel has a shuttle to a private beach. Its a short scenic trip along the bay - go early to secure a sunlounger.

We stayed at the Marmara Bodrum for my vacation with my family and friends. The hotel is great, beautifully located with breathtaking view, the hotel itself is very clean, spacious rooms and very impressive. The hotel staff is excellent, especially Ms. Ipek Ozkaya, their guest relations supervisor. She's very friendly, accommodating and very professional. She really made sure that we had everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. I highly recommend this hotel.
