“Your better off stopping in a hostel.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

When i arrived at my hotel door to see the 6 in gap between the bottom of the door and the floor, i would say i was sceptical. I also noticed the handmade door number on lined paper with a scribble. To top our first impressions off there was an unused tampon greeting us in the hall way. It was filthy. My mattress looked like it had been soiled, we had no frindge and no curtains in one room.

Electrical items hanging out of the wall and the shower was a death trap. God only knows how the familes with young children coped in the hotel.

The bed was changed, yet it didnt really make a difference if thwy were as the sheets were disgusting and dirty. The same can be said for the towles.

We had no fridge for 3 days and one of our beds was taken without notification. The floor had not been cleaned in the week we were there (as advised the tampon on the floor).

I can say the pool area was clean enough, however one lady fell between the grates by the pool. Also if you want to go nuts in the hotel there is a tattoo shop.

The hotel all in all was unclean and unfriendly. We paid all of our bar bills however on checkout we were presented with an 'unpaid' bill. If you do go make sure you get a reciept for everything and pay at the time.

If you want to take your life in to your own hands then go to the sundream, even the locals were asking why we were stopping there. Yes the holiday we booked was cheap but i didnt expect to be stopping in something worse than a prison.

Did not actually stay here was across the road but popped in for breakfast and from then on used their Pool for a week as if you weren't awake at 7am you couldn't get a sunbed at the sultan maris! The staff were mainly friendly apart from the odd one or two but had little to do with them.... The food was fine nothing out of this world but very decent portions and didn't make me ill - always a bonus! The mexican and italian deals in the restaurant were excellent value for money at around £7/£8 for a starter main and tea/coffee! Also there was certain BOGOF drinks offers both in the bar and restaurant which was well priced too. Saw one of the rooms looked basic but clean... the main thing was the pool which was clean and tidy and plenty of sunloungers in the sun all day long so really have nothing to complain about!

Well where do I start? Firstly let me start my saying I went to these apartments with all the doubts in the world running round in my mind! Totally opposite.. This place is fantastic. Its basic but for the price you get more than you pay for. The hotel ensures that there is entertainment nightly and they are always looking for ways to get the audience involved.
The staff are exceptional at their job, any thing you ask them to do for you is not a problem, big or small. Daily they are there to entertain and wait on you! All this nonsense about the staff turning funny with you if you choose to eat out or do not stay round the pool in day time, I'm sorry but this is a massive lie, they are more than happy for you to leave the apartments, all they do hope is that you return safe. My sister, my friend and I will definitely be returning to these apartments as it now what we call 'our 2nd home'

Just go with an open mind, have a laugh and you will enjoy your holiday 100%, like I did.

Hugs and Kisses..

****P.S... There is a bus that runs daily every 5 minutes (blue bus) which will take you into Marmaris. And if you want to go to icmeler beach you can catch the orange bus from Marmaris :) Enjoy your holiday <3

Had to ask 4 times before we got a fridge.rooms extremely basic but only in room to sleep and get changed.towels changed 3 times, bedding once. Can be very noisy at night early hours but maybe due to us having room at front ? Staff were fantastic,very pleasant and can't do enough for you,they gave daughter free cake for her birthday.apparently rooms poolside are really nice compared to ours which was in old part of hotel. Location ok...right in middle of all restaurants etc short walk or bus ride to harbour and beach. Would defo return as very good value for money.

Just home from the second time that i stayed there, i stayed in september last year. Had a problem with room, was staying self catering for 17 nights and had no working fridge and asked for pool view room and was on top floor looking at trees. This year, i was booked in for 28 nights, i had no fridge or shower. I complained to reception however english was not that great, so i had a friend come over to translate. Turned out that i was the one who was in the wrong! Moved rooms, did not use pool or eat there as felt very uncomfortable when staff staring and talking with eachother. Manager was very rude and asked us to leave on our second day because it was our fault we had to complain because we had NO shower NOR fridge. If u don't eat there they won't talk with you. Bedding was dirty and cleaners never left towels everyday. Do not recommend this apartments, unless its somewhere for your suitcase to stay! Made my holiday rubbish as i had to walk past all staff everyday whilst they stood and watched me. Shame for some of staff as they are great with customers however, majority of them very rude! Also, had phonecalls in my apartment at 3am in the morning when i was trying to sleep!

Room Tip: There are no good rooms!

Keep away from this hell hole please do not stay here! We booked our 7 day stay in January 2013 but just 24 hours before we flew out we received an email to say we couldn't stop in our original hotel due to it being over booked, so with only 24 hours to sort it out we just went along with the alternative they provided (sun dream) big mistake. What a hell hole as you will see from the photos I've uploaded, this place is so wrong in so many ways from the safety point to the staff.
First there are grave safety issues within the rooms and the pool area. Then you have the staff constantly on your case to eat in there restaurant and if you don't they get very unfriendly and rude.
We did try the food but as we expected it was poor to say the least and over priced for what you got!! The evening entertainment (if you can call it entertainment) was the same cr@p every evening. I could go on and on with this review but you will see from the photos and it will tell its own story.
If all you want is a bed for a few nights then use the beach do not stop here. Yes it was a short budget break for us but even with such a low cost hotel/apartment you would still like to be safe and clean anyway that's my view take a look at the photos and you decide!!!!

The Apartment complex is ideally situated in Armutalan, and is directly opposite The Parkhead Bar - a well known local landmark. Met by the Manager on arrival and given a choice of ground or first-floor (in Turkey, that is first or second floor :-)). The apartment was reasonably well appointed, huge lounge/kitchen, very good fridge, pool view via large balcony - and was spotlessly clean. The cleaners worked their sox off, as did the waiters around the pool. BTW, the pool and sun-lounge area is cleaned twice daily and the floor swept AWAY from the pool. Top marks from me, and one of the cleanest and well-maintained pools I have seen - unlike previous reviews such as the Club Viva! Food reasonably priced, with Efes beer at seven Lira, coffee four Lira; Wi-Fi is free! Recommend the Sundream to all, but ensure you always settle any bar-bill on the day; got a 'surprise' at check-out (12 noon) of two unpaid coffees - which I knew was settled as I presented the senior barman with a Dollar Bill when paying!!
Top Tip: Right in the heart of Armutalan - loads of bars, Funpubs and restaurants - Parkhead Bar, Corner Steak House, Madboys, Seven Brothers, Chuckle Brothers etc. Plenty of Indian/Chinese open buffet places - at least two Nightclubs - Pashas being the closest; and a trad style British Chippy doing the old Brit favorite and kebabs - Harry Rams! Local bus service (Dolmus- Blue No.2)) to Marmaris is phenomenal value at 2TL.

Room Tip: Ask for apartments with pool-view in rear block to avoid noisy main road.
