We have just returned from a fabulous week at the Mares Hotel. Although we arrived at 4am we sat on the balcony with a bottle of wine, heard the 'call to prayer' and watched the sun rise cover the bay. We knew the room had limited sea views but this meant we were at the end of a corridor and no sun on the balcony - this meant the room was quiet and cool. Perfect!
The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels each day. Plenty water and toilet roll.
The choice of food in the main hotel is excellent and we ventured to the pizzeria and Turkish restaurant - both fantastic.
The free booze is all perfectly acceptable and served by lovely, friendly staff. Try an 'orange' cocktail...
The pool and beach were quiet but guessing this was due to the early season. The guys working poolside organising games etc were very entertaining.
Shopping in ichmelar and marmaris was good fun - catch a taxi boat back to the hotel.
Biggest treat was the hotel spa - find Jesus, he is a treasure. We went for a Turkish bath, foam massage, full body and facial. Pure heaven and the gentlemen (you can choose) were very respectful.
