“Same great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have just returned from a 3 week stay at the Orkide.This is about our sixth time here and nothing has changed.The staff are great and good fun with Erdal the barman running the most efficient and clean bar in Marmaris with good humour.The cleanliness is beyond reproach and any request is granted.The food in the pool bar and evening restaurant is great and very reasonably priced.The Turkish breakfast in the morning is excellent and fresh.The only thing I would like to see is maybe a bit of watermelon at breakfast.The management,KK in particular, are most accommodating and will try to meet any reasonable request.Overall this is an excellent hotel with a great ambience and I personally hope it never changes and we will be back.Thank you to all the staff for a great holiday.

Just returned from our second stay at the Orkide Hotel. 12 nights this time...wished it could've been longer!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it felt like a second home. Relaxation is guaranteed thanks to all the staff and how laid back the hotel is. Just what we needed.

Rooms are basic, but just what you need...you're hardly in your room on this sort of holiday anyway (all you need is a bed and some air con!).

Erdal, Oktay and the rest of the bar/restaurant staff were brilliant. Erdal remembered us from last year, and was extremely welcoming from the start, yet again. Oktay was just a fabulous guy....Tom is now his "5th best friend", haha. We had such a great time, and miss it so much already. No hassle from the staff (which we heard is quite common at other hotels), excellent company from staff and other guests, and a lovely family who run it (KK - the best hotel owner, let us keep the room on until our taxi came at 6pm; and his little boy kept us entertained with games of catch in the pool, lots of splashing, and attempting to give the guests back massages!).

Don't really know what else to say...excellent hotel, excellent location, excellent staff and excellent value. Absolutely love the place, and will be back!

Thank you.

Sarah & Tom

Once again my wife and I stayed at the Orkide Hotel in Marmaris during July and August. The hotel was very clean and tidy with daily room cleans. Although we didn't use the pool facility as the beach is a 2 minute walk away we always found it to be very clean and well maintained. The staff are always friendly and unlike some hotels they are never in your face wanting you to drink and eat their. This year we decided that we would try out the restaurant food and for the price (cheaper than all other Restaurants) it was excellent and service very good. There is never any rush as Erdal keeps everyone calm!! The bar area, like the pool and rooms was always kept spotless and there was always someone at hand to take your order. The hotel is family run with KK being the main guy to discuss any issues with. The only issue we had was keeping the room on so we could shower and relax until our transport arrived. This was not a problem and we did just that. Thanks KK and Family. The head barman, waiter and comedian was Erdal! He's a pleasure to talk to, he is so relaxed he is nearly horizontal but just a great guy. He puts you at ease from your first meeting and stays like that throughout your time at the hotel. See you next year Erdal - make sure you have a bottle of jack with some in this time. Paul and Sue - UK (its raining once again)

Booked unspecified and landed on Orkide, the rooms are quite small but how often do u spend ur time in the actual room? :) The hotel is located close to everything you need on your holiday, the beach, adventures and a lot of other stuff to do.
The staff and the service was excellent, great prices compared to other hotels in the area.
We love you Oktai!!!!

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at the Orkide. The Hotel was perfectly located to the beach, restaurants and bars. The hotel pool area and bar are excellent, in particular the service and prices. Food is good an priced very well compared to some of the nearby hotels.

The hotel itself is spotless, the rooms are cleaned daily with clean towels and bedding changed every couple of days.

However, the rooms are very basic and could do with being modernised. This was not an issue for us though as it was expected with the price we paid and the excellent service from the small staff team easily makes up for this.

We would certainly return to this hotel and recommend it to others! Great value for money! Big thanks to Erdell, Oktay and all the other staff who made our first trip to turkey one to remember!

Room Tip: if going as a couple ask for a room with a double bed
