This hotel is an absolute disgrace in all respects. Whatever facility you can think of it is absolute rubbish. The rooms are a disgrace and the food is disgusting and the service is non existent. Their website is completely nowhere close to how it is and the positive reviews on trip advisor just can't be true there is no way anyone could have anything positive to say about this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.

Our second visit to marsyas hotel and will be returning next year! Friendly staff and excellent value for money hotel. we stayed here near the end of season so bar was running low however staff accommodated us and other guests by going out and getting the items we were requesting :)
People give this place a bad name need to remember you get what you pay for, if you want a tv in your room go to a 5* resort however want a family run friendly hotel then marsyas is the place!

I would advise to book another hotel, we moved after 2 nights of staying there. There is a mosque next door which wakes you up at 6am with their calls. The prayers come over loud speaker. Swimming pool looked more like a pond, green, cloudy, could not even see the bottom of it. It looked more like a swamp than a swimming pool. The bar was destocked so no drinks/juice available. There was no hot water, when we asked for it they said they did not see point on putting on for the amount of guest they had. I eventually seen why there were no other guests.When they eventually did put the water on for us after pleading the shower flooded the bathroom. We got one towel between the 3 of us. When we asked for more, the owner of the hotel became aggressive and started shouting in turkish and was looking at us as though we were lieing. She made us feel very unwelcome. She told us to move to another hotel if not happy. So that's what we did. Never again would I stay in this hotel.

Just back from Marmaris and stayed at Marsyas again. As always we were made to feel very welcome by mama and the family and of course Selman :) Mama even offered to take us out for the day to her village but unfortunately we didn't have time...next year for sure ;) We stayed in the refurbished rooms which were lovely. We only had snacks here but they were great. See you all next year!! :))

Stayed for 2 weeks in August as a family of 5. Excellent service, very welcoming and friendly. Brilliant location - within walking distance to the centre but away fom the noise.
Fresh home cooked and traditional food.
Would upgrade next time to the newer rooms.

Would definately recommend and return x

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking pool have the sun on them first thing and are very warm.
