“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

I've never been on an All Inclusive holiday before, but would highly recommend this one. I travelled with my 9 year old daughter, and spent a week at the Marmaris Palace. We just returned home yesterday and we want to go back! The hotel is spotless, rooms are cleaned daily and restaurants cleaned constantly. The waiters and other staff are attentive, friendly and make you feel very welcome. The food is fantastic and caters for all tastes. You are provided with breakfast (cooked, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, pancakes, breads or facilities to make toasted sandwiches), drinks throughout the day, Gozleme (Turkish pancakes with different fillings), lunch (diet, salad and hot buffets with fruit or desserts), afternoon snacks (freshly made pizzas, sandwiches, pasta, cheeseburgers and hotdogs), afternoon cookies, dinner (hot and cold buffets, salads) and 'midnight soup'). My daughter liked the childrens buffets (chicken nuggets, pizza, salads and vegetables), free ice cream and afternoon snacks. I am a vegan, and I had absolutely no trouble finding plentiful, delicious and healthy food.

The kids club is free and friendly, catering for children from 4 to 12 years. There are two sessions, one from 10 to 12.30 and the other from 2.30 to 5.30. The staff are lovely, really good with children, and they hold a 'mini disco' in the evenings. There is a playground, main pool and pools with slides for the kids, and a 'relax pool' for the adults. We didn't explore some of the other facilities, partly because we were happy with the pools and kids club, and partly because we didn't realise how much was included. We would have liked to do the kayaking or canoeing.

The hotel spa was fantastic. My daughter had a chocolate massage, and I had a Turkish foam massage including a body scrub) with face mask and Thai massage. They feel amazing, and the spa itself is beautiful. I used the gym a couple of times- there are weights machines, treadmills, step machines and exercise bikes. Some of them were a little dated, but perfectly serviceable.

We walked along the beach to Icemelar and Marmaris to visit the markets, taking the little Dolmus minibuses on the way back. These are little buses that cost 2 or 3 TL for adults. We also took the Dalyan departure excursion on the last day, which involved a coach trip to Dalyan, a short river cruise, then a mud bath, lunch, another cruise past the rock-hewn Lycean tombs to see sea turtles at Turtle beach, and then a trip back to a basic hotel in Dalyan (with a lovely buffet dinner) to await transfer to the airport. Unfortunately it was a little cold on the day we went, with some unseasonal rain, but the mud baths were lovely, and you have time to look around Dalyan in the afternoon/ evening. My daughter enjoyed the mud baths but found this trip to be quite long and tiring. All the adults loved it.

Altogether a lovely holiday.

We had a fantastic all inclusive family holiday with our two Daughters ages 24 & 27 and our 14yr old Son in for a week over Easter. This hotel offers very good value, great choice, quality food & very good on site facilities,

The hotel is lovely and very clean with room service throughout the day and early evening, nothing is too much trouble, all the staff are professional and welcoming and treat every guest as royalty. The hotel facilities are excellent and very clean, lovely good sized rooms and bathrooms with hair dryers, a large shower enclosure, towels and toiletries and every room has a safe, a fridge stocked with water & soda water and a fantastic balcony & view of the Mediterranean Sea & the mountains. We had rooms 229 & 230 the views of the coast & the sea were excellent and not impaired in any way. It is on the hillside and has a selection of pools and facilities including water slides, all on different levels & surrounded by pine trees so that most were not overlooked, excepting the top pool next to the main hotel building. The complex is enclosed and at the coast end is a public promenade, and the hotels private man made beach area.

Hotel facilities: has a beautiful free, newly refurbished gym & spa area (indoor heated pool, steam room & sauna), for a fee (I paid £40) you can also have a Turkish bath (lovely) Thai massage & facial, the Thai massage is not for the faint hearted, I had bruises after it! There is also a privately run hairdressers & nail salon, I can highly recommend the male hairdresser, not the other. During a very bad so called excuse for a manicure & pedicure I was left with smudged polish & cut & bleeding cuticles, which now a week later, are still tender & have scabs on.

It has a very good kids club & entertainment team. There is an al la carte restaurant on site, but as the Turkish holiday season does not start until May 1st this was not open in April. There are some on site shops for gifts, sweets, essentials & leather clothing. It has motor boats to hire for aprox £70 per hr, a fast & exhilarating max 4 person inflatable water ride (towed by a motor boat) for £10 per person & a flying 4 person inflatable for £15 per person, parasending & other water sports facilities including diving. The pedalows and kayaks are free to use by hotel guests. The coastline is beautiful & there is a stunning promenade walk, that goes by the hotel for a gentle stroll from the hotel to Icmelar (20 mins) or to Marmaris (45 mins). You can also hire bicycles at the hotel for £2 per hr. There is a little bus that stops outside the hotel it costs 3 Lira each person to Marmaris, we paid 20 Lira for the 5 of us in a taxi outside the hotel to Marmaris.

We went on boat trip from the hotel around the islands from 10.30am - 5pm with stop offs for sightseeing, swimming & lunch (provided free) the cost: £9 adults £4.50 children. Drinks, ice creams & other refreshments incurred an extra cost but they were reasonably priced.

We met lots of lovely guests & staff. All the staff were friendly & very helpful and worked extremely hard looking after all the guests, not all the staff spoke English but there was always an English speaking member of staff nearby to interpret. The Turkish people are friendly & helpful but very respectful of your privacy & personal space. I say this because this is the first holiday that I felt I could totally relax wherever I was. (There are no time share people or beggars & you can walk down the high street without being bothered by people trying to get you to go in their restaurant or shop). I highly recommend Turkey, it is steeped in history, historical sites and every view is one for the photo album. Go and soak up the sea, history and the sun, I would love to stay at the Marmaris Palace again.

Room Tip: Avoid the nail salon!

I spent 10 days here with my partner & our daughter. The hotel is spotlessly clean, food is great (and I am a fussy eater) This hotel is a must when you visit Turkey. To top it all off they have the best waiter in the world called Speedy. He totally made our holiday. He had everyone join together, laugh and made everyone feel relaxed while running about getting you everything you need. He really is the icing on the cake to this hotel. 100% the best hotel I have stayed in and I have traveled all over.

Came back yesterday (12th April) from a week at this hotel and I would go back tomorrow if I could! I went with my two kids (10 and 12) plus a friend and her 2 kids (11), all of us agreed that it was the best holiday that we had ever been on! The accommodation, amenities, food, staff, weather, cleanliness, pool, cocktails, entertainment, location and poolside crepes were perfect. My only quibble is that 1 week is not enough...we're going back for two next year ☀️☀️☀️
