Arrived late at night, easy and welcoming check in. Soup, bread and cold meats available for a midnight snack however all inclusive alcoholic drinks only available to 12.30 pm after which there was an all night pay bar.
hotel is a beach type, you feel safe with security guards on duty at all times. There is a large communal pool, a tranquil relax pool, a plunge pool to the left of the horse sculpture Which was used exclusively by my teenage kids, a second plunge pool near to beach, watersides and children pools. The beach area is idealic and relaxing but buy swimming foot wear (local shoes cost about 30 lira) as the swim area is very pebbly. A snorkel or goggles are great for swimming with the local
fishes, great for a cheap pedicure if not wearing shoes.
Don' t bring beach towels as you pay £5 per towel which is refundable and towels can be changed on request.
The food is excellent not typically British but there is something for everyone, do try the lunchtime menu in the beach bar.
We travelled at the end of October and Experienced temperatures above 30 degrees and colder temperatures under 20 degrees. I must admit the hotel copes well with warm temperatures but is at a loss with keeping guests happy during rain and thunderstorms.
There are several bars, the local Efes beer is excellent, the local wines are good and the shorts and cocktails are adequate. Soft and hot drinks are very good, local bar service is good.
The hotel is definatly one of the top hotels in Marmaris and iclemar, both are accessible by local dolmas bus 2 lira per trip.
Shopping is great for good quality copies in bazaar in Marmaris. Hoodies about £10-£15, handbags £15 purses £6-8 are possible if you haggle don t pay too much in local shos near to hotel.
When it rains the hotel staff communication does break down. Entertainment seems to be limited to hotel lobby chill out which can be quite boring however there was a disco near amphitheatre. I would recommend that hotel entertainment staff advertise what's on in the evening on a main board in lobby when the weather turns.
Unfortunately there are problems with insect bites in the evening I would recommend insect repellant and anti bite creams, antihistamines if you are prone to being bitten.
A slightly biased niggle is that disco music and pool music is predominantly Turkish in nature and there is always a better response to well known artists. Tip to local entertainmaint management not all your guests like dance music, play some well known stuff early on.
Overall the hotel is great and me and my family would recommend a visit. The experience is true value for money with no hidden extra,s. The cleaning staff in rooms are excellent cleaning up after 2 teenage kids daily.
Thank you Club turban for a great and memorable holiday.
