“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My wife and I visited this hotel with some trepidation in August this year 30.08.13 to 7.09.13. We should not have worried. We have at least four holidays a year and this hotel and experience whilst there rank it as one of the best holidays we have ever had. The hotel was stylish and kept immaculately clean, the food was delicious and kept well stocked and was piping hot, the staff are extremely hard working and maintain service with a smile despite them all working a minimum of what seemed to be 15 hour shifts per day! all spoke good English and were well presented. The quality of the drinks at the hotel was excellent and Ozzy the entertainments man kept everyone tastefully amused every waking hour. From Lazy island to the beach the bar to the pool the guy never stopped working encouraging all age groups to join in, even me and I'm a 'meldrewite'! The hotel is adult only next year, the only improvement I can think of. Booked to return there within 24 hours of being home. No one will fail to enjoy this relaxing gorgeous boutique hotel.

Returned on 4th October 2013 after a 7 night stay and I have to say that this is the best hotel we have stayed in. Staff were exceptional, rooms were excellent along with room service. Staff catered for all your needs, everything was clean, food was really good and varied. The hotel is situated about 10 metres from the beach. You can walk to Icmeler and Marmaris town centre (approx. half a hour) walk), you have local transport right outside the hotel at a cost of 80p either way.

The only minor niggle was the entertainment could have been bit better.

Overall, a brilliant hotel/holiday.

Returned on the 27th September after a 14 Night stay .
Myself & my husband have travelled extensively & usually never stay twice at a resort /hotel.
Would I return here then it would have to be a BIG YES.
It is a small hotel 103 rooms .
The only downside is that because the rooms are mainly on the side of the hotel you may get an obscured view of the wonderful sea/jetty but this did not cause us a problem has we only slept in our room (which are spotless).
Where to begin there is a private jetty which is known has Lazy Island again spotless always clearing the drinks or refreshing your drinks ,always plenty of sunbeds so encountered no problem no matter if had a lie in .
You will get to know Ozzie whom is the Entertainment Team he was joined by a Girl second week of our Holiday .
He works tirelessly & even if you don't want to take part (which he does not push) you will not fail to be entertained day or night .
Because the hotel is small the service is impeccable & friendly .
The food could be improved upon but the Chef & dining staff are always friendly & go out of there way to ensure the dining area is spotless & the Chef will come out to check/meet & listen to your feedback.
There is always food & a snack bar by the pool which serves Pizza /chips /beef burgers if you don't want to eat in the main dining room .
Cake /biscuits in the afternoon never a shortage of anything & served with a genuine smile from all of the staff.
The bar staff are friendly & will remember your drink after a day of you being there .
The management are friendly & are always around .
All staff genuinely enjoy there work & it shows we felt has though we had made friends .
We usually go for R &R & we did have this but the entertainment /staff & other people (holiday makers) really ensured that we had a Brilliant time everybody mixes has this is a smaller hotel.
From next year they are thinking of not having children (to be honest there were only 2 children there ) I agree this is not a children's hotel , it is a very nice adults chill out (no water slides etc for children ) .
They are at the moment 4 * which is very well deserved , I think to obtain 5* they would have to provide more luxuries in the bathroom 2 bars of soap & shower Gel at present .
There is free WI FI & a limited number of T.V Channels free but you can upgrade your T.V Package for £15 for 2 weeks & this is very good value with Movie /sports Corrie if you missing it !
Brilliant Hol/Brilliant Staff & we will return has many people seem to do .
A little Gem

Room Tip: We were on the 5th Floor near the back of the hotel /sunshine in the afternoon & view of the jet...

This hotel is conveniently situated between Marmaris and Icemeler, where you can walk or get a bus to either resort.
The hotel is small giving a personal touch, all areas of the hotel inside and out are spotlessly clean .
The food is excellent, and caters for all tastes . There is also an outside grill /bbq area which serves anything from omelettes to steaks. The head chef is visible in the dining room at both lunch and evening meal, asking guests about the food, which I found very reassuring.
The dining room is spotless , and the waiters are extremely professional , cleaning and waiting tables, you can have a relaxing drink in Bar B before dinner, enjoy some board games , or read books/magazines. All through the day , snacks are served , plus ice creams and cakes in the afternoon.
The patio/beach /jetty area is well maintained by the efficient beach manager who distributes towels and drinks on a regular basis.
The entertainment is great, break dancing, Turkish dancing, competitions, singers, live bands, all coordinated by Ozzy and his assistant. The games in the day were darts, ping pong, Zumba and aqua aerobics , so catered for all . Ozzy works extremely hard and is so pleasant , to make sure you have a good time.
the spa , is excellent, managed by Aslam and his staff who are a great team. We would recommend the spa at the hotel, rather than cheaper down the road as the health and safety is second to none , well done to the team !!
To sum up, this hotel is managed by professional , friendly staff, and there is always a manager on duty. We had a brilliant time and met some great friends who all want to return. !
Congratulations to the fab team who run this hotel with extreme professionalism, we will be returning. Jayne and Andy xx

This was our third time at this hotel, and I have to say that it is the best hotel I have stayed in. It's beach front location, Staff and cleanliness make your stay here fantastic, the best bit is the jetty (Lazy Island) where you can lie back and relax on the sunloungers and listen to the sea and drift off, until Ozzy starts Shouting WAKE UP LAZY ISLAND and comes around asking if anyone wants to participate in the poolside games but he is not pushy, unlike ententainers in some other hotels I have been to, if you say no then he leaves you alone to get back to reading or resting. The bar staff, Mehmet and ALi, are very efficient and no one waits long to get drinks. The food is very good with a wide range of choices. My wife, myself and our son cannot wait to go back.

We ( two couples in their 50s and 60s) stayed at this lovely hotel 18-24th September and had a really wonderful time.

We arrived in the early hours of the morning. The check in process was quick and efficient and we were shown to the two rooms nearest to reception on the ground floor. We found it very difficult to sleep in these rooms because of the repetitive electrical humming noise which went on all night. In the morning we complained about this at reception and we were moved to rooms on the third and fourth floors. The new rooms were larger, had more wardrobe space and were very peaceful. From conversations with several other groups in the hotel and reviews on here it seems to be quite a common policy to put people in these rooms initially even though they know there is a problem with them.

This slight niggle aside we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, stylish hotel. The rooms were extremely clean and well presented. The public spaces are light, airy, spacious and kept immaculately clean. The terrace, beach and jetty are also kept very clean.

The dining room is well organised and again kept spotlessly clean. The waiting staff work extremely hard to ensure tables are cleared efficiently and tablecloths changed for every set of diners. There was always a great range of tasty and well presented food and you would have to be an extremely picky eat not to be able to find something to eat. There is always a 'live' cooking station serving omelettes, pancakes etc at breakfast and other specialities at lunch and dinner. The 'Tips Box' on one of the serveries is for the kitchen staff. If you wish to give tips to the waiting staff this is done on an individual basis.

We used the hotel spa for a Turkish bath/massage/ face pack package and thought this was very good value and carried out in a very professional way. We liked and appreciated Aslan's friendly and non pushy approach to selling the various spa packages. The check out time for the hotel is midday but if you have a late flight you are able to use the showers in the spa area to freshen up.

We had a wonderful boat trip with the man with the wooden boat selling trips next to the hotel jetty. The four of us went out from 9:30 a.m. until 5;30 p.m.. We had a huge plate of fruit mid morning, grilled fish, pasta, salad and bread for lunch followed by melon and then tea and cake in the afternoon. He took us to several idyllic, isolated coves for swimming stops. The total cost for this very special day was £100 which we thought was tremendous value.

It is easy to get into Marmaris and Icmeler by walking, dolmus or by hiring bikes or motorised scooters ( haggle for the best deal - we paid 15 Turkish Lira each for two hours, enough to get into Icmeler along the promenade, admire the spectacular scenery and get back).

In conclusion we would highly recommend this hotel and would love to return in the near future. Congratulations to all staff who work so hard to create such a lovely experience for all their guests.

What a friendly welcoming hotel. All the bar staff, waiters, Ozzy the entertainer, and Aslan in the spa made us feel very welcome. Everyone was so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The hotel was clean, food tasty and the jetty known as 'lazy island' was a great touch. The bar manager and hotel manager were both so helpful we will be returning!
