I was happy with the hotel when we arrived as last time I stayed in Marmaris our hotel was like cell block H! this was a lovely facility and the rooms were very nice. The location was not as good though as the best spots in Marmaris are near the beach front and this would be a 20 minute walk. Especially for the "no hassle" this location is full of hassle so if this bothers you this area is not for you! The maids were the best staff members very friendly (even though limited english) and left us a lovely surprise before our last day which I have put pictures up of as well as the female receptionist who was very good and John "Big Bad John" was the nicest male member as when asked where is good for a night out etc. he wouldnt just say go to the hotel bar (so you would spend) he would honestly say where to go. The rest were "too keen" when it came to our female group members and because there were 7 of us they were more pushy with trying to get us to buy stuff as we were a larger group! Particularly I think Mario needs the sack as he is just looking for a UK wife and hassles no end! The waiters were very slow when I went for breakfast on the last day (we were self catering) and rolled their eyes if you asked for anything so I found them very rude. Although I was not in a family party I would say that the hotel would be best suited for families as it isnt the livliest and the pool area and kids club seemed to be very good for that.
All in all if I go back to Marmaris (as I do love the resort) I will book nearer the beachfront.
