“Great hotel and would visit again”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We have just returned from Turkey at the resort was great. It's less of a hotel and more of a number of apartments that are all self catering as far as Im aware.

Although fairly basic the rooms are adequate (We were in the basic room) and even if you're on self catering don't worry. Lunch at the Al a carte restaurant was cheap and nice as was the pool side bar where you could get drinks, ice cream and such all well priced. We never ate in once. The main restaurant at the hotel was a little expensive and we only ate there once but went to the town every evening to eat. The most expensive meal we had was fillet steak and that was £10 but most other meals are £5-8 per meal. There are free shuttle buses from the resort throughout the day and a taxi in the evening will cost around £3.50 each way but as food is so cheap you don't even think about it.

The service at the hotel was great and 'Ulrike' the Guest relations Manager looked after us well and on the couple of occasions we had a problem with the aircon the staff attended with-in 10 minutes.

Would I stay again? Definately
Would I recommend to a friend? Definately

The only downside as far as I'm concerned was the smoking by the pool. I think there should be a smoking area - it wasn't too bad but just on occasion there was the odd family smoking.

Apart from that all good - great views from theb hill and may well even visit again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room and lower down the better

Family of four, with two teenagers. Arrived from Dalaman on transfer, after dropping off people in Marmaris and Icmeler. So glad we went the extra few miles as the resort is so nice set in the mountainside forest. Rooms basic but kept spotlessly clean - we were self catering and had a two ring hob plus kettle - we were supplied with a toaster on request - just ask as the staff are very helpful. The pool was really nice with the greenery and the shade from the olive and fig trees was very welcome. Plus the view of the bay from the pool was just so so pleasant on the eyes. The night sky full of stars could be clearly seen as you sit at the evening bar. We found the A la carte restaurant after a couple of days and snacks very good there. The resort is set in the mountainside so it is a hike from the pool up to the higher apartments but the resort is well worth it. Lots of really good outdoor trips run from hotel ie canyoning, hiking, sea kayaking but hotel prices! Free wifi very good. There are some two small pools further up from the main pool along with kids club.
The hotel runs a free shuttle bus during the day to Turunc which drops off and picks up near Palette bar. The dolmus bus stop is at the end of the drive for trips to Turunc, Icmeler and Marmaris. Fifteen Lira presently (each way) will get you a taxi into and out of Turunc which has lots of restaurants, boat trips and shops. You can walk down to Turunc easily in 20 mins but it is hairpin bends with no pavement - walking back is possible but mentally physically tough.
We tried a few bars and but mostly liked Fidan and Palette (Palette good for exchanging currency). Turunc has plenty of shops and restaurants but is not the Marmaris club scene
We did Aquadream water park which we enjoyed very much. Don't take drinks or food into Aquadream to save yourself any disappointment - as the woman on the entrance doing bag search takes no prisoners! There's no specific kamikaze or lazy river but great slides - you can use mats if you want and there were no queues (Tuesday) plus the foam party etc from 3pm onwards was very good.
Es Restaurant very nice as was Korfez - the food very reasonable in Turunc. Imported drinks (inc Efes) in hotel and town bars similar to UK but local drinks, cocktails and spirits very reasonable.
We went on Musti's lazy day boat trip and had great day out in the bays.
Thoroughly lovely holiday - never had one so so chilled.

The best holiday we ve had due to an amazing hotel. All the good reviews are true. We are a family of 5 with young kids and everyone had a good time. For our wedding annversary celebration they did an amazing decoration on our bed with bottle of wine and fruits. Hotel is clean , staff friendly, local shop very cheap and plenty of towels, free shuttle buses to local market, great view and nice restaurant. Only minus for me is not much entertainment for adults at night apart from hanging at the bar. However im a very happy customer.

We are a family of 4 who have just returned from a 2 week stay at this fabulous resort. Like all the previous reviews say, the setting is just incredible. The hotel has a good mix of German and English residents with a smattering of other nationalities too. There is no organised entertainment which could be a problem for some; this was a blessing for us. My two children, aged 12 and 16 met up with others of a similar age and enjoyed a freedom that they seldom get at home. The hotel is clean, fresh and spacious and it manages to convey a relaxed feel. The Oxygen bar is brilliant to chill in the evenings whilst enjoying a fresh breeze that is often missing in the village. The staff are excellent and the prices are reasonable. We attended the free yoga sessions and we went on one planned excursion, otherwise we simply relaxed! The village of Turunç is nice, it looks better from above but it is pretty enough. The restaurants there are plentiful and fabulous. The hotel is situated on a very steep hill so it wouldn't be any good for couch potatoes! Saying that there is a frequent shuttle bus from the hotel and taxis are cheap and plentiful. We walked into the village most days and I often walked back, it really isn't too difficult, the worse thing is avoiding the cars as there is no path as such.
I would highly recommend this hotel. It is not the most plush hotel but is is different and it's a million miles from the typical package deals associated with Turkey.

Room Tip: We had a basic room but apparently the superior 2 bed rooms are much better. There are a lot of step...

We are a family of five with three teenage children. The hotel was perfect for us. The rooms were clean and a maid came every three days to wash and clean. We had plenty of towels supplied and a welcome bottle of water in the fridge.
The ceiling fan over the dining table didn't work so we reported it to the receptionist. A repair man came the same day to fix it.
Their was plenty of shade by the pool under the mature olive and fig trees.
Really we have nothing negative to say about our stay and will be recommending the resort to all our friends and family.

Set on the hills high above turunc this hotel is certainly the best standard by far
It's Eco friendly approach offers fresh local produce

I don't recommend their breakfast it may be fine if you are about to set off on a days excursion of extreme sport not for me however their lunch menus were fantastic
We chose to eat a la cart once evening at the resort this was a mistake as there are far better restaurants down in the village
Room cleaning was fine once we requested that it. Should be done every other day else they were prepared to clean only once a week a condition set with the tour operator still reception was obliging and we thank you for that

If it was not for the excessive heat of turkey I would have gone back
As this resort was outstanding and the staff attentive and honest

For the second year running at Loryma we had a deluxe 2 bedroom apartment with amazing views over Turunc. The apartments are cleaned every other day to a high standard and have everything you might need for self catering or half/full board. The staff are helpful and friendly and the resort is kept spotlessly clean. The shuttle bus from the resort to and from Turunc is great for beach days or eating out of an evening. The Loryma is a very relaxing, family friendly place to spend an extremely enjoyable holiday. We would definitely return there again.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms with balconies have breathtaking views
