This is the most frustrating holiday we have ever had ,Marti Resort is a lovely hotel in a beautiful bay with nice rooms and good food but no attention to detail.
Maybe we had a real end of season experience ,the atmosphere was certainly in wind down mode .The service was non existent ,there were never enough staff in the restaurants to give any service ,when there were a few people the last thing on their mind was the customer.
The pools are large and look inviting but for all of our 10 days they were empty as they were so cold it was impossible to get in ! A frustrating waste and also a lost opportunity to visit the pool bar in the afternoon which we love to do .The sea was much warmer ,plenty of sunbeds on the beach and directly outside the hotel.
The animation/entertainments team were by far the worst we have ever come across,totally lethargic and disinterested ,they were mostly Ukranian and more interested in entertaining themselves ,again maybe they were willing the end of season to arrive.
We had booked all inclusive but met many couples on half board who had never been asked for the card and were not paying for drinks leaving us feeling cheated having paid up front.
There were some nice touches ,a harpist played at breakfast and a piano/flute combination in the evening .
Rooms are spacious with a sea view a must you need to be on 3rd floor or higher ,the view is worth it over a stunning bay watching the boats come and go.
Most of the service issues would be easy to fix but not sure whether that is the philosophy ,we had paid a 5 star price for our holiday and the feeling we left with is of really poor value ,the hotel does not live up to its billing or price.
