Stayed in this hotel for a week in June. On arrival some confusion with our room but this was quickly rectified and we were given a bungalow room with sea view which was fantastic.
Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and towels replenished.
The hotel itself is lovely. Amazing views and very picturesque. The pool areas were always kept clean and tidy and plenty of sun loungers for guests. Free towels were available to use and could be changed on a daily basis.
Gym and spa facilities are available. We took advantage of a Turkish bath on our first day which also included a 30 minute massage and face mask, well worth £40. Similar at home would of cost much more. Hair salon next door also very reasonable.
The hotel has a jetty and 'beach' area. We found for us this was the place to go during the day due to the sea breeze and the temperature being in the late 90's! We did not make use of the water sports but many options were available some with an extra charge.
On the Wednesday we paid £9 for a boat trip which left from the hotel this was great value for money and a full day out. Been told Wednesday was a better day to go as it was changeover meaning the trip wasn't as busy.
Food was more than adequate the pizzas at lunch time were the best! In the afternoon we recommend going for your dinner around 8ish, any earlier you will have to queue and leave it past 9 and you will not find much left. Lots of choice for all! Fresh fruit available from breakfast until 9.30pm. At midnight soup is also available which was handy for us having arrived at the hotel late after a long flight/transfer.
Drinks were fine local beer is great and cocktails available although some at extra charge.
All the staff were extremely friendly and could not do enough to help. Felt sorry for them on many occasions for having to deal with a few rude Russians who had no concept of queuing or knew how to say please and thank you! (Do not let this put you off staying at this hotel).
To icmeler it was a 20 minute walk along the front, quite a few bars and restaurants in resort if u fancied a change from the hotel. You can also get the dolmus (small bus) from right outside the hotel for 2.5 lira this runs to and from icmeler and marmaris, much cheaper than a taxi although can often be crowded.
Marmaris is a large busy resort full of bars, restaurants and shops selling 'genuine fakes' would say it's worth a visit just for a look. Seems as though most of the other boat trips (cleopatra island etc) go from here. Harbour is quite up market and nice for a drink.
All in all no complaints at all and will most definitely visit again.
Only suggestions are that maybe self service soft drinks could be an idea and a book swap somewhere in the hotel would be handy. There is a shop within that sells used books but I read 2 by day four and left them in my room when someone probably could of made good use of them and vice versa.
Thanks for a great holiday!
