Cemre Hotel
Ranked #39 of 53 Hotels in Turgutreis
Reviewed 4 July 2014

really enjoyed our 2 weeks here ,room cleaned and fresh towels daily, read a lot of bad reviews before coming here ,need.nt have worried, you could see improvements happening almost on a daily basis, the management are trying really hard here, and in my opinion are doing a great job, As for the staff well they were fantastic every one of them, simple but more than adequate breakfast with good choice of the usual turkish breakfast fare. Would not hesitate to holiday again here.Hakan,aaron and mustafa behind the bar were very entertaining.

Room Tip: ask for sea view land view not so nice, they will accommodate if they can

Following my review of the Golden Moon Apartments in Marmaris, September 2011, I had no qualms about once again going for a small two star family owned and run hotel.

And I was not disappointed!!

Admittedly the Cemre has changed ownership since a lot of the unfavourable reviews were written. I found the hotel to be clean and looks to have been re-painted internally. Bed linen was changed every other day and towels were changed as and when you threw them on the bathroom floor. In June the air conditioning was essential, like safes this is optional payable at reception.

Food wise I tried a good half of the menu and was not disappointed either with the quality of the food or the portion sizes, the only "small" thing about the food was the price, I can particularly recommend the Chicken Shish! There are some excellent restaurants in Turgutreis such as Uncles and Cool Breeze. Turgutreis is approximately 1 mile walk along the seafront although a taxi will only cost you 12 Turkish Lira (about 4 quid).

Staff; were all very helpful and attentive and within a couple of days become friends. To a man (figure of speech) they are all extremely hardworking and it is not unusual to find the manager or indeed the couple that own the hotel mucking in. And in common with everywhere if they find that you are a good tipper you do get better service!

The prime beachfront position of the hotel has stunning views and phenomenal sunsets and the sundeck above the bar is ideally placed for enjoying both. There are other, newer hotels close by but most will cost you three or four times as much as the Cemre.

Do not get me wrong the hotel is very much "work in progress" with some beds still needing replacement as with the showers, but, considering the time you actually use these.... need I say more?

I will return to the Cemre again

Room Tip: The garden rooms face East so you get early sun but are a little noisier and the rooms are cooler in...

Thorough enjoyed my stay at the Cemre hotel. One of the cheaper hotels but is worth every penny. The hotel is clean, serving good food, excellent views of the sea and staff are always very willing to help and very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Without doubt a super stay in Turgutreis, all the staff are brilliant, hotel clean and tidy with views out of the balcony window that rivals any you care to mention but at the fraction of the price. I stayed half board which is a self service buffet breakfast and evening meal all nicely cooked and presented with a good choice. Turkish breakfast with different hot specials every day, evening meal a host of fresh salads and different hot meals changed daily. I hope to return soon. I am currently writing this toward the end of my holiday using the free hotel WIFI.

Stayed for 2wks bed an breakfast,location,people,weather second to none.Workers are poor so tip and they will fall over backwards to help you and make your stay as comfortable as possible.I will be returning.Please do not book excursions with rep they will only charge you way over the price,make your own enquiries.Supermarkets close to hotel will also try,so always ask prices first.If you take a chance on this hotel knowing what you can expect,you will have a fabulous holiday.

The Cemre hotel is a very basic hotel that could do with upgrading this said it is very cheap and in a great position for the views and sea. We have stayed here a couple of times and had a great holiday each time.
The main resort is about a fifteen min walk along the sea front and has a small bar street and pleanty of places to eat.
The main down side to the resort was that the sea front walk is quite dangerous as someone was attacking women even when they are with a partner so be very carefull as this is common place and the bar owners try and cover this up and not involve the police.

Just returned from Turgutreis. This hotel is what it says on the tin, small, poor accommodation, food not great but in a perfect location with friendly staff. At less than 150 pounds for 2 weeks you can't grumble too much. With a building site either side of the hotel the staff tried in vain to keep the rooms and balconies clean. The guests nicknamed it faulty towers and it sure suits. We have stayed there 3 times during our many visits to the village but with the new Dragut Point hotels either side the days of the Cemre may be numbered.
