“Best solution in Bodrum City”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

In Bodrum city extreme caos this hotel emerge as a unique pearl. The hotel is located on a small hill facing Bodrum bay (best solution if you want to stay in Bodrum city avoiding the extreme mess made by thousand of people spending vacation there). Bodrum's castle (city center) is just at 15 minutes walking distance if you want to avoid taxi (suggested option at least on the way on) or if you're not traveling with your car. The hotel structure has an unique architectural style and every room is a perfect place to enjoy your gateway. Our room (actually not far to be considered a junior suite) was amazing with a private balcony and a small living area. The bathroom was enough large and well furnished. The hotel has just one restaurant but its quality is outstanding. Also, the view that is possible to enjoy from the restaurant terrace is breathtaking. The hotel has two pools (one of them located just under the restaurant), tennis courtyards, gym and wellness center. The staff was friendly and available but never intrusive. The hotel PR manager - Mr. Nino - is simply lovely. Once you became use to meet him during breakfast you cannot do without to start you day in the best mode. If we should come again in Bodrum city we will definitively consider to stay at this hotel again.

I booked an accommodation for two people, but I ended up with no company. However the high quality of catering and the nice, approachable and friendly staff made it one of the most memorable vacations I have ever had. You only need to request for anything once and it's done.

Every one is helpful and the hotel is at a walking distance (there is a steep walk though) from the amenities and the vibrant centre.

The rooms are very modern with and amazing view of the Marina. The hotel has a contemporary feel to it, despite the ancient design, a fusion well designed. The hotel is so CLEAN that you feel you have been invited into someone's house.

I will definitely go there again.

The Marmara Bodrum is a truly Excellent boutique hotel with a lots of personality and style. The rooms are romantic and if not luxurious, very comfortable, cozy and tasteful.

The hotel itself is on top of a hill overlooking Bodrum with a fantastic view from the entire hotel, including the rooms. The hotel is very chic and tastefully done. The breakfast buffé is very good and the host makes everybody feel welcome and comfortable.

An extra plus is the gym which is well equipped and the Spa including a Hammam which is of great quality.

I may be biased as I had my wedding here last summer, but it is a long-overdue review and after visiting the hotel again a few weeks ago for lunch and some sunbathing, I was reminded about how amazing they are!

My wedding was perfect, with the coordinator Canan being available during every step of the way. It was nerve wracking planning a wedding from afar, but Canan was responsive, reliable and kind. I cannot say enough about her. She made the experience wonderful.

Many family members and friends from out of the country stayed at the hotel and all gave amazing reviews of the hotel. They loved the food and service, and pledged they would be back to stay there again in the future.

Every experience i've had there has been excellent. I've had facials and massages at their spa- they use Darphine products- very nice.

Their food is one of the best I've ever had. Always excellent and our guests STILL talk about the food from our wedding! The catering manager is wonderful and an expert in his craft. I will never forget the fig dessert we served at our wedding - I wish I could have it every day!

Our visit this year for lunch was great, too - the menu changed, but still just as good!

Service by the pool is excellent. Attentive staff and always with a smile.

Music by the pool is great- DJ Baris is excellent. Great lounge music that is relaxing and nice to listen to. He also did a great job at my wedding :)

The rooms are very comfortable, bed is amazing and the bathroom amenities are by Molten Brown. The views of the water and Bodrum Castle are amazing.

Really, this is the best hotel in Bodrum for everything. I cannot say enough great things about it and have stayed at many top hotels in Bodrum. I cannot thank the staff enough for their excellent service and look forward to coming back in the near future.

On our wedding anniversary my wife and i to visit a new place, we randomly decided to choose The Marmara, we didn't know what to expect there specially after seeing the bad reviews from our friends about other different hotels in Bodrum. I can simply say that the Hotel exceeded our expectations from all aspects and we are delighted with our choice, the Hotel had the best view of the city located on a hilltop with amazing scenery where you can stay there the whole day without getting bored. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The mini bar had a huge choice of beverages and snacks. The food is delicious and i must mention in house wine they have (one of the best i ever tasted). Last but not least the Marmara team is the friendliest and the most courteous i have ever experience, they were very helpful with their advices where to go around Bodrum, we had a really royal treatment and we felt like home.
A huge special thanks to Onur and Nino, we will surely visit you again soon.
Keep up the great work.

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...
