On arrival (from Dalaman airport about 2 hr transfer with comfort stops) we were checked in quite quickly and bags taken to our room for us. We stayed on the second floor room 219 overlooking the pool. the room was very clean with a double and a single bed although there was only two of us we didn't mind the extra room as we used the pare bed for clothes etc.....to hire a safe is 2 euros a day and internet in the room is the same price although I managed to pick up the Wi-Fi from the lobby on the balcony as we were above the indoor bar. The room had a hairdryer and free hand wash and shower/shampoo which was nice, towels were provided and the pool towels were provided too. There is a mini fridge which if you wanted could be filled daily for a fee (we didn't as we found buying bottles of fizzy pop etc. cheap enough)
the room had a television but only certain channels like the news in English so limited to what you can watch if your English.
there was information about the hotel in the room, about the hotels bar food and snacks opening hours although a price list for the mini bar (fridge) would of been helpful for eg there could be a tick sheet for the maids if you wanted it stocked. there was a phone, which we didn't need.
Tea and coffee would be a good idea in the rooms as they ask you not to take food and drink into the rooms for health and safety reasons, although most mornings there was a table full of glasses and plates on the landing. The room was lovely the only downside was at night the disco and entertainment starts and we couldn't figure out why it was so loud even with the door shut it was still loud, then we found out why... the balcony door wasn't sealed to the wall so there was a gap between the wall and the door frame!.. it didn't ruin it though as I take ear plugs anyway lol... but check the seals on the balcony door frames if your pool side as it does get louds especially as the hotel next door seems to compete with the noise from ours!
downstairs is a large lobby area which is marble and very nice, you do get hassled by the men running the spa to have treatments etc.. but I found a firm no on the third attempt worked. the spa area has all kinds of treatments from Turkish baths to massages, nail care to vitamin bar, there is a gym in there too and even an indoor pool, which we found was too dimly lit and cold to want to even try it (dipped a toe in lol) the ladies in the spar were lovely but I found the men especially the older guy with the suit jacket on, too pushy and to be honest the guy in the jacket was quite arrogant too so I just ignored him eventually as I found him rude. There are shops on site, a little shop that sold perfumes crisps and nick nacs in it, the people running this are lovely and friendly. the jewellers, well I didn't venture in as he again was constantly trying to get you in to clean your jewleery as well as sell it to you!, the hairdressers looked nice but I didn't use it, as we were leaving we noticed the leather bag shop was just starting to open as we went a week before the actual season started 20th Aril - 30 the april.
the restaurant was well catered and stocked with all sorts of food for all tastes, although on week 2 we were getting bored of the same stuff, pasta rice and chicken lol.. but there are a lot of foods on offer. there is an indoor bar and an outdoor bar area, the outdoor pool bar has the lunch snack bar located with it too.. there are two pools the main one being the noisiest and the quite on located at the back of the hotel by the outdoor patio area, the beach is right by the hotel with free sunbeds too.
the staff were friendly and polite (except suit guy in the spa he is pushy and arrogant) we had no problems with the staff at all, we found some more friendly than others but they do their jobs very well we found and had no staff problems.
we did 3 trips.. a jeep treck with Cleopatra island... warning: the rep will sell it but not tell you about the disclaimer the jeep people ask you to sign!.. it askes if you have back problems, migraines, blood pressure etc.. and all sorts then askes you to sign it, we challenged the rep who just said " they do that to cover themselves" we found this was bad practice on Thomas cook as you pay and then find this out WHEN you go on the trip, people should be told first. if you go on the jeep we found it was breezy so you may need a jacket bear in mind it was beginning of the season, make sure you put sun cream on too as I got burnt badly too as I thought it wasn't that hot but god did I know it the next day. were sunglasses too as they advise this. the jeep was bumpy so just warning you, the island tho was fantastic, lovely clear waters but by time you get there you have 1 and half hours there. Lunch was provided chicken and spaghetti with bread and salad, followed by fruit, you can also but snacks on the boat and drinks. next we went to Rhodes on the catamaran, be warned Rhodes is euro and its very expensive! getting off the catamaran was a nightmare as the customs office had no queing system so everyone gathered at one open door to get in, it took a good hour and more to actually get through customs then we had 4 hrs to wonder round..
we went to see Ephesus which was lovely, although its a couple of hours on a coach to get there, you get comfort stops and breakfast but if you don't like olives, cucumber id think about buying something to take with you as all I liked on the breakfast was the boiled egg and piece of bread, your picked up at 6 am too so its a long day, the grounds are all marble too so take good comfy shoes if your unsteady on your feet as it does get slippy in places, I wouldn't recommend to anyone with disabilities to be honest as there were older people with walking sticks who were struggling in parts . Once in Ephesus you can go round with the guide or on your own and meet later and you can hire speaking headphones too... if your into history etc. this is the trip for you.. ill put photos up also after Ephesus we went to the virgin Marys house, last place of living , it is a pilgrimage place and I recommend it as you get to go in the house (no photos allowed tho) and you then get to walk round the grounds and get some holy water from the spring that is fed through taps so you can fill bottles up and take away if you like. there are also stalls to look at when you go in and out of Ephesus and Marys house.
on the whole we had ten days and enjoyed it a lot, customs will stop you leaving the country with anything that's like a weapon so beware as some gift shops will gladly sell you a knuckle duster only to have it taken off you at customs as they scan your cases before you check in, (I saw this happen)
marmaris is a lovely place the bizarre is brilliant if you like to haggle but most the shop's are the same, clothes watches or bags lol... the harbour is great as there are some really expensive looking yachts you can look at ( drool)
id recommend this hotel to anyone as its located about 1klm from mrmaris but you can walk and not notice how long its took as there are shops all along the way or walk down the beach front. there are little dalmush buses at 2 Turkish liras (50p) each way so I recommend these too.
There is a kids play area out the back of the hotel and a waterslide too.
