My wife enjoyed our first adults only holiday here at the beginning of October 2013. Some older guests struggled with the many steps to the accommodation but the guest buggies were always on hand to drive people back to their rooms.
We asked to be moved after our first night as we had an adjoining room and you could here everything through the door. Our request was immediately taken on board and we moved to a very pleasant room. I would point out that the rooms are quite audable and that the walls are not overly soundproofed. This by no way is the fault of the staff nor management but a building design.
The dining area is very nice and a lot of food is prepared freshly in front of you. All drinks were perfectly acceptable and service was never a real problem even though the hotel was full.
We enjoyed the quiet pool at the top and it has it's own pool bar. The staff were all courteous and polite.
As a birthday treat my wife booked one of the 4 post luxury sun beds on the deck where drinks and dinner are served. We had a couple of issues with the bed and it's surroundings including my wife falling through an unstable bed.The issue was addressed immediately by the star of customer relations..Ozlem. She moved us and offered another bed on another day free.
The views were stunning and the sunsets are spectacular.
Whilst we were there we encountered some unseasonably low temperatures and torrential rain. The management were quick to respond by offering guests blankets in the public areas. The staff were issued with jumpers. Good forward planning I thought.
We spoke to the resort manageress Sharon on a few occasions and you could see how proud she was of her staff and hotel.
Visiting Marmaris was easy as the dolmus picks up and drops off at the hotel gates.
All in all we embraced the adults only concept. The settings are spectacular and we would gladly visit this brilliant resort again. A personal thanks to Ozlem for all of her assistance. I've shown 5 stars as this was how much we enjoyed the holiday. No it's not five star accommodation but 5 star service provided.As stated before the only minus for us was the thin walls and how much you could hear. Or is that just me being jealous?

Room Tip: The quiet pool is just that. Nice

Went to this hotel July 2013 for a week, which was the first time to Turkey. The Staff were friendly and polite. If your looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday, this is the place to go. We used the free kayak hire most days and just relaxed on the private beach which was clean or by one of the pools which were also very clean. The food and service was excellent and could not be faulted. The rooms were clean and tidy but had to walk up a slight hill to get to the room. We enjoyed it so much we have booked again for this year for a longer stay.

We booked this hotel for the beautiful views and scenery, and were not disappointed! We were allocated a high room and although as others have mentioned this meant facing the dreaded steps, the view from our room was simply amazing! If you are in good health, would certainly recommend requesting a high room, its worth the trek!

We really enjoyed the couples concept and felt they have tried to think of everything. The entertainment schedule was packed, not what we went for but nice to have the option if you want it!

The nights entertainment was pretty good from where we were sitting. The In house duo - Matt and Sarah were enjoyable and the Beatles tribute was amazing! Especially the impromptu pool party after!

The food was ok, but nothing special in our humble opinion, and the service in the restaurant wasnt as good as the bar. However these are very small gripes heavily outweighed by the location of the hotel and everything else the Hotel has set up.

The staff do deserve a special mention as they really are very friendly, especially the maids, they soon learn who you are and you find them waving and smiling every time they see you!

All in all a very relaxing week! Would certainly go back!

We visited The marmaris Imperial at the end of July for 2 weeks. The hotel & location are beautiful with turquoise sea & green forests all around you. The weather was gorgeous. The pools were just wonderful, we spent most of our time by the relax pool and would nip to the beach for a dip every afternoon.
The food was fantastic with lots of choice to please everyones taste. I think the drinks could be improved, it seems to be par for the course with all inclusive resorts in Turkey that we have come across but the cocktails were particularly poor.
There were various food theme nights which we enjoyed especially the Asian night.
We had an evening on the rooftop A la carte restaurant Turkish night which was brilliant & service first class. The maids kept our room lovely and clean and always were smiling and saying hello.
The entertainment team of Sam, Amy & Carl were great fun. The football in the afternoon was great, a little warm to be playing but the sea was 20 metres away for a dip straight after.
I think the resident duo were good but after 2 weeks the routine was wearing a little thin, & could be improved by having more different artists. The beach party was great fun & we met loads of great people.
DJ Ismet was very nice & would play your requests to keep everyone dancing
we drove everybody mad with Madness - One Step Beyond. It would have been nicer to go on a little later as he had to finish his set at 12 o'clock quite often. The entertainment was low key but we had fun every night dancing with some of the friendliest people we have ever met on holiday.
The boat trip in the evening across to Marmaris is worth doing, you can also use the dolmus which was very cheap but the boat over was nicer.
Marmaris is a nice harbour town & quite a pleasant evening walk along the quay, also the indoor bazaar was worth a visit for a few bargains
The Turkish massage in the Spa was okay but quite pricey and not the best one we have had in turkey. They also pestered you afterwards to buy more treatments.
We only did one excursion which was the jeep safari, we had a good laugh but there was a lot of waiting around in the sun, and some of the places we visited were a bit naff, the Jesus beach was very disappointing - holiday maker Central.
The staff were the most friendly we have met in Turkey and a credit to the hotel. A special mention to Zelo at the Relax pool bar who was always smiling & kept the cold beer flowing.
The waiters in the restaurants were always there to top up your glass especially Ridvan who did insist that he is the best waiter on the complex, also Choccy & Emre deserve a mention for making our holiday. All in all we had a lovely holiday at The Marmaris Imperial & would return again to a Suntopia hotel. This was the best hotel we have ever been to for amazing staff, gorgeous food, relaxing but fun times, we loved it. We met a great crowd of people & have kept in touch.
Thank you to all the staff who made our holiday so special.

Stayed here for our honeymoon and really couldn't have picked a better place! The food was amazing the service made us feel like royalty! The rooms were lovely and the beach and pool were exactly what you want and more! I loved how you could be in different areas of the complex and not even feel like ur in the same town; each area was very different and so a wonderful variety and atmosphere. There are so many wonderful things I could say about this place but the best is just to say go and see it for yourselves!! Perfect!!

We went for a weeks break at this hotel in October 2013, This hotel is very nice, lovely grounds and excellent spa. The grounds are quite large and it is built on the side of the hill so getting to your room without the hotel buggy is a challenge if your not to fit, if your at the top. The grounds has a beach, a decked area on the edge of the sea all with plenty of sun beds. There are also hammocks and bean bags to relax in surrounded by beautiful scenery. Absolutely lovely location. Nice and quite. The spa is amazing, it's a must try. The staff are all very accommodating. The only two moans I have about this hotel is, at times in the main restaurant area there is a lot of flies, on the tables and walking all over the buffet food, this was very off putting, but there is still plenty of food under cover to eat. The quality of food was not the best I've had, a little disappointing and the second thing is the alcohol, the local spirits are absolute rubbish, I'm not a drinker but I thought as I was on holiday I would have a few, total waste of time. My suggestion is get your spirits at duty free if you like a little drink. Cannot complain about the rooms, hotel or location it was all very good. Overall it was a relaxing holiday.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for sharing your impressions about your recent stay in Marmaris Imperial. We were happy to read that you enjoyed your holiday overall and liked our location, spa and layout as well as the helpfulness of our staff.

Regarding your comments about the restaurant and flies, we do have pest control in our resort and our food in the restaurant buffet is generally covered, from time to time with changes to weather we do experience this issue, it is dealt with as quickly as possible. I am sorry the food was not to your taste as we do achieve really high scores on food and I believe our kitchen team works really high to create tasty dishes for everyone’s taste.

All our drinks are original local brands produced in Turkey, import drinks are also available at the breeze bar for a charge.


Thank you once again for your comments, we hope to see you again as our guests.

My kind regards,

Sharon AY
