“Highly Recommend!”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Myself and my partner have just returned from a week at the Albatros and we are already looking to return. We chose the Albatros partly based on the low price and also relied on its good reviews via Trip Advisor. We were NOT disappointed. This is a lovely small friendly apartment which is all we needed. The rooms were basic but clean. We were self-catering so didnt spend much time at all in our room as we were out and about plenty. The pool and bar area were clean. Sun loungers ALWAYS available. Food and drinks here were lovely and the staff even better. They certainly made our holiday. Cannot speak highly enough of them all. Turkish night at the Albatros well worth going to!!! The apartment is well sited so as its not too close to the hustle and bustle but within easy walking distance of the bars, shops, resteraunts and beach. We have recommended the Albatros to family and friends and we will definitely be returning. Cannot fault this place, especially for the price we paid for the holiday, absolute bargain!

We stayed in the apartments for two weeks at the start of September, got back today

When we arrived we was kindly greeted by a member of staff at 3am, upon check in we was very surprised how small the reception was. It has a desk and three chairs with a table

Getting into our apartment, we was in the old block across the road which we was happy about
The room was huge, had a lounge/kitchen area with a bedroom which had two single beds

The bathroom is more like a wet room, the shower was fine with hot water

The faults of the room was the base of the beds had sick or toilet stains on them (nice hygiene there)
Also the bedroom door had 6 panels of glass where one was broken and had not been removed so very sharp
The bedding gets changed twice a week (do you need it changed any more?)
The cleaner is in every morning, yes you do get dirty feet but this is because it is a dusty area

We did like that the main door was locked at midnight

Overall we was happy to sleep there and couldn't complain at the price we paid

Things to note

- the room is very basic, it's somewhere to sleep and if you want to cook
- the pools are deep 1.6-1.7 metres
- the mosque goes off every morning at 5 am, 1pm
- no food or drink allowed by the pools unless brought from the hotel
- you can only use wireless if you buy drinks from them
- the walk to the beach is a simple 10-15 minutes (we did this at least twice a day)
- music finished at midnight every night


I would not recommend for families, some others would but I would not take my family there
It would be a good place if you want somewhere to sleep and it to be cheap


There are shops and bars everywhere and lots of little shops, there is a huge kipa supermarket down the road which is great, eating out is very cheap and if you walk to the beach the restaurants are very nice

People speak good English and are kind unless you walk into shops were you will mostly get hassle, offer a stupid price and that gets them away

Marmaris is lovely and clean, very busy but you get the weather

my wife and I have just returned after a week in the albatros and boy what a poor hotel. the room was dirty there was hair all around the bed, in the bathroom there was no towel rail so we had to put the towels on the toilet seat. in the main pool two many sun beds no room to move. in the second pool. the pool was dirty on some days chickens running round so god knows what was running round in the night. the restaurant area was tired and could do with a good make over. the staff were good I ve been to marmaris 6 times and by far this the worst hotel ive stayed in, I would never go back.

We have taken 17 holidays abroad in the last ten years including three cruises, so although not the most travelled person I have seen good and bad and this is my honest opinion.
Basic rooms, maid cleaned everyday, although the food was very good, it was give or take as cheap as anywhere in marmaris ( breakfast £1.30 5 course meal £5.30 ) bottled beer 50cl ( = 0.9 pints ) £2 ( the cheapest we have seen in marmaris ), 2 large pools ( which I noticed being cleaned every night ) always sunbeds available, good, sometimes excellent entertainment every night, the Turkish evening was superb, traditional dancers, belly dancer, fire eating, breakdancing ect, and the best and biggest barbeque I have ever seen all for about £7.50,
I have marked the location down a bit only because it wasn't on the beach front, the main bars were about a 5 minute walk ( closest bars were 1 minute ), the beach front was a 10 - 15 minute walk ( I timed it ), every single bar also had some kind of free entertainment.
But the best part of this holiday, the staff. VULCANE ?, BRIAN, ALI, CHEEKY BOY, and the young girl with the most genuine smile in the world GAMZE ? and all the rest who's names I never quite grasped, they were a pleasure to be with, could never do enough to help you, and happy to do it.

NEGATIVES -- the heat 45 in the shade every day never any cloud, it became very wearing ( next time I will go earlier or later in the year ),
-- The people outside the bars constantly pestering you to buy food or drinks ,--
Both pools were 1.7meters deep, my wife being 1.4m, she had to use some kind of float.
Apart from this I would recommend marmaris, but more so the albatross.
Also people have complained about noise from the mosque, we were in the nearest block and could only hear it when we tried.
