First stayed at this hotel in August 2010, loved it so much we went back in August 2011 and have booked once again for August 2012! Me and my family have never been to the same hotel twice let alone 3 times, so that must be saying something about this hotel!
The location of the hotel is perfect, short walk to the beach front where there are numerous bars and watersports. It is located on a main road but the noise cannot be heard within the hotel. Outside the hotel you can catch the local buses either into the centre of Marmaris or going the other way to the next town that is Icemeler.
The hotel itself is spotless with staff always around cleaning and mopping. The same goes for the rooms, they are spacious and kept clean with maids coming every day providing fresh towels and bedsheets.
There are a number of pools around the complex but sunloungers did appear to be an issue with many people getting up in the early hours, putting towels on sun loungers yet not actually coming to use the sun loungers until late afternoon.
The staff at the hotel are all very friendly and cannot do enough to help you. The staff in the restaurant are fast and efficent cleaning away plates as soon as you finish your food. The barstaff are also very good as never had to wait long at all to get a drink.
The choice of food available in the restaurant was very good as there was something for everyone. I am a very fussy eater and managed to find something to fill me up every meal time!
There is entertainment every day and night except for Sundays. Entertainment in the day ranges from waterpolo and aqua gym to darts and bingo. There are different shows put on every night along with a game of bingo as well as the clubdance which is good fun. The entertainment team do there very best to try and get everyone involved so do try and take part to make the most of your holiday! The hotel also provides a bus which leaves the hotel around 11pm to go to barstreet with other hotel guests and brings you back to the hotel after which is good fun!
I don't have any negative comments about this hotel and hope that my third visit to this hotel is a great as the last 2 have been!
