“Friendly staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We loved it, the staff are excellent, the owner freddie is lovely very helpful. They do want you to eat at the restaurant because the only way they make there money from people is if you buy food and drink.I know the way the hotels work and the most money goes to the airline and transfers, we only paid £215 per person and out of that the hotel only gets £15 from each person for the two weeks so its going to basic,I wish people would consider this then writing stupid reviews if want a bit more class pay more.Food was excellent, the weather was lovely and the staff excellent, most of the people we met had stayed there before and returned time after time,so they are doing something right!Entertainment was fab had us smiling night after night. we will be returning next year and THANK YOU to all the staff we love youXXXXXXXX

Room Tip: go half board and book it then you get there as its cheaper than on the web

Havnt long been back from another fantastic stay at Grand Villa Sol.. went in September for 12 nights with a friend and sister and just couldnt wait to return and thats why we went for a further 10 nights in October :) the staff here are brilliant with all the guests and couldnt try harder to make your stay a happy and memorable one! Ive been going to Grand Villa Sol continuously for the past 3 years and i would recommend it to anyone. Yes the rooms are basic but they are spacious and are definitely big enough to sleep 4 and the food is very good value for money it might even be worth going half board for £10 a day just see Freddi on arrival! :) I would like to thank the staff here for everything and especially Freddi the manager he just couldnt have done anything more to help us enjoy our holiday! See you next year guys.. lots of love abo & sofo xxx

I've been to this hotel 4 times now and every time the staff have gone out of their way to make my holiday brilliant. This time was slightly different as my friend had to leave early due to a family emergency. Never have I been in another country alone so that for me was daunting enough and yet not felt alone for a second. I told the manager Freddie about my concerns and he said don't worry we'll look after u, come with me and sat me on a table with 2 other guests who also welcomed me. Instantly all the guests were really there for me and took me under their wing so to speak, this is the first time out of the 4 times I've been here that I have made heaps of friends and we continue to catch up on Facebook (I'm quite shy with approaching strangers). I have seen such kindness from both staff and guests and can honestly say that the people who review and say its 'clicky' haven't taken the time to speak to the regulars here or they don't like to mingle in the first place. It is a home from home. If u don't like mingling with other guests then go 5 star where u are just a number to the resort and not a friend. The manager and staff here genuinely care about u and will look after u. My holiday is a prime example of this as I know that if I was in a hotel in Marmaris that I didn't know I would have been very isolated and alone when my friend left and probably would have hid in my room lol. This is a 3 star hotel and the rooms are big and basic. Who stays all day in their room it is a place to rest ur head. The food is good and the price for half board is very good if u r on a budget. The hospitality is second to none. I have stayed at other hotels and it doesn't even come close. If u enjoy holidays where u want to make friends then here is the place to stay, so many people shed a tear when they leave and I'm not just saying that it is totally true. People come here again and again because of the staff, the guests and the atmosphere. Freddie and the boys I really want to thank you again for looking after me, and to all the wonderful friends I made thanks also for the amazing laughs we had by the pool, in the evening and at Pacha lol. This was a fab holiday despite the fact my friend had left early. Thank you Villa Sol :)

Me and my partner booked this hotel as we were surprising his sister who lives near-by. We Stayed there the first night and the room was VERY basic. We had a view of the noisy main road after being promised a pool/garden view. We had planned on staying a couple of nights at the hotel but mostly at my sister in laws as that was the main reason we were in marmaris.
You can imagine my absolute HORROR as the owner/manager confronted her (whilst we were getting a few of our belongings from our room) claiming that we were 'using valuable space in his hotel, taking the pi** out of him by not spending money in his restaurant/bar, AND never to come back to his hotel again'!!!!! The room was booked SELF CATERING and if you ask me we were under NO obligation to eat at his restaurant at all. I was not impressed and I told him I had paid to stay in his hotel...he had my money so I didn't understand the problem. He shouted loudly at us to (--) and 'go away before he dragged us away'.

After speaking to the holiday company who were EXTREMELY apologetic and seemed to have had complaints before, they arranged a private transfer elsewhere for us so luckily I didn't have to see that vile man again.

NOT RECOMMENDED!

I stayed here on my own as I was visiting a friend,I felt safe and welcomed by the owner and the staff...I had a brill time as I met loads of wkd people and they made it even more better for my stay as I was on own. There was horrid weather so it was actually a fun time staying in the bar as they catered for all of us,and plenty of entertainment...the waiters were brill and funny we all had a laugh,food was nice and the rooms were basic but satisfactory for all my needs...defo going back next year with the people I met there :-)

Didn't stay here but used the facilities as our daughters were staying here.
Hotel is basic and clean. The pool is small and there is a sunbathing area with free loungers.
Always a good welcome from Freddie, Kevin and the lads. Food is good and drinks are reasonably priced. Can't recommend this place enough.
