Checked out after the first night because the bed was horrific! The mattress was so lumpy with springs poking out that I had to sleep on one of the couches. (The couch has springs poking out too). I was thoroughly disappointed and would not recommend anyone to stay here because a good nights sleep is at the top of the... More

A basic level apartment where the room price only includes the apartment without breakfast, AC and fans. They have a small swimming pool but one would hardly want to dive in a pool when you are in Marmaris to enjoy the beaches. Location is 10 minute walk from the beach and things get to slow down by the night when... More

Only stayed here for 1 night but from what I seen it looks like a nice place! Rooms very spacious & had a balcony overlooking the pool, pool area also looked nice, would probably return here as it would be nice to get a better feel for the place :)

Marlin Apartments are great for a relaxing break. The location is a quiet area, so peaceful, but also about 5 mins walk from the beachfront, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The staff at Marlin Apartments are really friendly and helpful. The apartment itself was large, clean, and well equipped. I would definitely stay here again!

Apartments clean and tidy,rooms cleaned every day,basic cooking facilities but useable,showers are a bit on the small side not much room to move even for the average sized person (size 12-14 or medium male).Apartments are central for most attractions i.e. beach, market, shops. Food is available but there are a variety of good restaurants nearby.

Stayed here for just 1 night, the reason we booked this apartment was the fact that it accepts pets and we took our small dog. When we spoke to the staff they seemed very pleasant. The apartment was very dated and were very damp. The plaster on the walls was all coming off and the whole place stunk of damp,... More
