“Time to relax...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

On first look the "boxey" exterior doesn't promise much, but a bit of a more funky interior, I hope you like bright colours, makes up for it somewhat.

Great sized rooms with free wifi although (for a caffeine addict) they do skimp a wee bit on the coffee and tea.

The pool is great and heading down to the private beach a real pleasure, a wee bit in the middle of nowhere as not close to either centre or the beaches but you can easily spend most of your time at the hotel anyway.

only problem was the service, just didn't seem to be any urgency in getting an order in, there were plenty of staff so should be easy enough for them to wonder around the pool/beach asking people on a regular basis.

We spent 2 nights here as part of a group tour. The hotel had a very fun color scheme of bright pinks and turquoise and our room was very large with fun contemporary decor....not at all like a traditional hotel. The grounds and views were lovely and pleasant to stroll. You can take an elevator to the beach level. The pool looked good however it was a little to cool to swim, but it was pleasant to sit there and have an Efes beer after a day of sightseeing. Both the breakfast and dinner buffets were very good.

We two spend there a very good Beach Holiday. Awesome and large Hotel - with avery good Interiour. My Friends am me have been there for 14 Days. The Beach at Hotel was very clean with clear Water. Swimmingpool Area have been nice, but mostly much Guests there, so we decided to go better to the Beach. In Evening the Buffet for Dinner was very good and there have been a large Choice of Meals. Especially the Desserts have been very tasty. Reception Staff was very friendly and did gave us good Recommendations for Daytrips.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, quiet, breakfast not extensive but order outside the offered range is possible, good location to acces the city and the old city, very nice beach which can be accessed by lift, good for diving, able to rent gear and get instructions just on the same location on the rocky beach.

This was my 3rd stay here after a long pause (6 years).
Still hotel leaves good impression. Rooms are simple, but nice. Clean. Welcoming stuff. From high floors seaview rooms you'll have nice view.
No animation, loud disco or thousands of crying children.
The only thing that changed - quality of food. Breakfast & diner are almost uneatable & it is such a shame & pity for a 5 star hotel! They should immediatelly change this!
To resume - it is a nice place for a long weekend stay. But if you want to stay longer you'll be bored & need to find place to eat.

I must say the Marmara experience was one of a kind. The hotel rooms were very comfortable and sexy, the hotel breakfast was very varied and full of taste. The staff were always doing their best to make the hotel guest feel comfortable and very much welcome.
I was very impressed by the staff during breakfast whereby my wife, little daughter and myself felt served well. Must thank Mustafa for the early morning breakfast, Hussein for the normal breakfast .
The spa and the turkish hamam were very clean and very good. The hotel in general was a very clean and well kept affair. I must mention the beautiful swimming experience in the mediterranean sea offered by their water edge property.

However there was a mix up with the rooms which was a disappointment. They have a double double room which is supposed to house 4 people, as in 2 couples. Its a family room with a separating inner door. We ordered such a room and i called in advance to verify the room type and i got the above information from the reservations department.
On arrival at the hotel in the early dawn hours we got a pair of guys in the reception who gave us a double room with the scenery of a parking lot. This was supposed to be an upgrade as they meant that they dont have double double room.
All in all we did feel a bit conned here and i feel the Marmara is much better then this. So pull up your socks in that department, and please do give correct information and rooms according to what one has reserved.
Otherwise i would recommend this hotel and would look forward to stay here on my next visit to Antalya.

Room Tip: be carefull when you choose the double double options. They don't have such rooms, according to...

Rooms are large and spacious. Amenities are more than enough. View is great. Food is also very good. Wifi is fast enough. All other 5star hotels i stayed at are almost alike. But this hotel is exceptional. Our room is located in front of the main building and is turning 360 degree and other hotels in the world does not have such feature. Hotel staff is so friendly.besides location is also very good. High quality restaurants are just a walking distance away. A nice mall which is called Terracity is also a few minutes away by taxi. It will cost you just 3-4€. Beach is also very nice and cosy even tough there is no sand.

Room Tip: Prefer revolving rooms for great experience.
