“NEVER AGAIN!! TERRIBLE HOLIDAY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

first impressions were not good at all. although the rooms are big they are very basic and dirty even though they were 'cleaned' every two days! the pool area is always dirty and the pool was not cleaned the two weeks we were there. we were hasseled every night to eat in the hotel when we decided to go else where they got really nasty with us. we did eat in the hotel twice and the food was not great as all definetly not worth the price we paid. its much cheaper to eat out. it is happy hour from 7 til 12 during the day a bottle of effs is 3.50 and at night its 7lira and you get two so really its not 'happy hour'. two of the bar staff asked if we wanted to go out on the first night, we did and when we got to the bars the hasselled us to pay for a hotel room for the night so they could sleep with us. when then realise we made a bad decision to go out with them so we left. STAY AWAY FROM JAY JAY AND SIMON!!!!! two of the biggest preverts about!!! they should not be allowed to work with the public especially when young girls are there!!! they try and chance their arm with every girl staying at the hotel and some are stupid enough to go off with them!! the entertainment if thats what you can call it was the same most nights and consisted of the bar staff doing a dance! before i went away i read some of these comments and i thought 'it cant be that bad, people just like a good moan' well i was wrong this was the worst hotel i stayed in!

Was my first time in turkey and had a great time and this hotel was great the staff were all lovely and friendly and made the holiday one to remember had my daughter who is almost 2 with me and she also had a great time the staff here were great with her, Stayed in the hotel most nights for dinner which was lovely and served very fast which was good as when we went else for dinner waited a long time for food... entertainment was great fun staff had you up dancing having a great time and always made sure everything was ok and you had a drink didn't have to go to the bar once as they would always bring to you.

Cant say enough good things about these guys they all great and made my holiday one to remember will defo be returning next year..

Will never go here again, staff are very rude, arrogant and a bunch of greedy thieves! Had my lap-top stolen from Bar Staff, both my sons were assaulted by bar staff. The bar staff even assaulted the DJ last yr here as well and are due to be sentenced in October this yr (2010)
Had nothing but hasstle and had to involve the Police on more than one occasion also the British Embassy have been informed of the disgracefull manner in which guests have been treated, aftre 5 days i requested to be moved into other appartments.The manager and his staff at this place are a disgrace and i doubt they will still be operating next yr. Had a much better second week once we were moved away from the dirty grot-hole of a place.........Lock your daughters up if you have any above the age of 12! or better still...stay away for god sake

We arrived early hours 16/07/2010 for a two week stay.Having holidayed in Marmaris the last three years i can safely say these were the largest appartments wehad stayed in.People have complained in previous reveiws that tthere is only a/c in the bedroom but in my experience this is the norm in Turkey.The rooms were cleaned every day.On the days we spent at the apts and had alunchtime snack or an evening meal we found the food to be of a good quality and a reasonable price.At no time were we ever pressured to eat in the resteraunt.The staff were friendly but not in your face. A special mention to Eddie who had a smile for everyone.There was free pool & internet and the swimming pool was of a good size.Entertainment at night was much the same i have seen the last few years M.Jackson,break dancers gets a little tiresome ! Considering we arrived the day before Goldrail collapsed we still had a great time and the appartments and staff added to this.

Here are my tips.
Its not 5 star and if anything is broken,make a list and tell reception.
There was a few faulty items but they fixed what they could.
Freddy the owner is nice and helpfull,he works long hours so if anybody arrived then,I read on here he was grumpy,but he ill help out if he can,he smiles and is human and a marvelous DJ at the apartments.
There was nightly entertainment,with acts lasting roughly about 15 minutes.acrobats,magic show, Turkish dancers. something every night.
The staff particularly the lovely( Junior,)Jay Jays brother is just adorable.
Robbie he dances every night he,s like a Turkish Patrick Swazee,worth staying here for him.He,s gorgeous.
When I read this site about the staff being horrid if you dont eat there,I made sure,I ate there most evenings,and the staff were lovely.
I know the way you get treated by the staff can make or break a holiday.
They do tend to ask where your going but I just said eating with them later.
The food is fantastic tender fillet steak,chips rice veg, they have most stuff on the menu.
About 10 /13 lira lira (about a fiver for Pizza) £2 chips. 9 or 10 pound for steak meal,and they give you free mezze /pitta starter.
Drinks are 2 4 1 all evening vodka and coke 10 lira,u get one free thats about £4.
It all adds up and I spent nearly £1000 in 2 weeks as the food adds up,and we went on a lot of trips,bought cds dvds of trips.and rarely drank alcohol.Bring plenty money.
We didnt need air con and it was 90 every day,safe £20 for 2 wks.
Judy the English manager is friendly and helpfull,the pool is lovely and clean.
They didnt re sell the lilo,s they regularly chucked them in the pool,and when someone wanted to buy one Freddy got one from his stock,not from what people left.
My advice dont leave your daughters unattended,go everywhere as they are better off ,as the guys will try it on.If you get pissed and leave your precious daughter,they will probs try it on,any where you go,the men are sleazy and horny.
Show you are respectful,and your daughter repects herself and if a waiter asks for a sneaky little kiss,and you find out.he,ll apologize,but they do try there luck if some girls are easy,in any apartments you stay in.
The men hassle you walking down the street to buy trips, meals and the market is the worst,its strange at first,but then just ignore.
Go on the jeep trip its great fun and pretty liberating.
We had a great time so go with the flow,so may English,irish scots,very friendly
