my partner and i work in the travel industry and have stayed in a variety of hotels from 2* up to 5* all over the world. we booked the marti because of its location and the reviews seemed ok. On Google Earth the hotel looked like it was in a good location and we werent disappointed. Icmeler is quite a nice town and there are restaurants and bars a short walk away.On wednesdays there is a market where you can get lots of bargains.You can get into Marmaris easily enough if you want to visit there.
As regard to the Marti. We really enjoyed our stay there. We paid £400 each to go All Inclusive and i would say that it was worth it.
Starting off with the rooms. The rooms are a little dated and ours didnt have a balcony as it faced towards the mountain. The room has a safe and a fridge in it which i like so you can keep your valuables safe and keep water/beers cold. Not much else to say about the rooms really.
The food. Cant believe what some people say about the food.Thought is was excellent.We took full advantage off AI and had BK,Lunch,afternoon tea,Dinner.There was a wide variety of food which was all tasty. I would love to know what some people eat at home if they thought that there wasnt enough variety. Once during the stay you could eat at the Groto Italian restaurant which you ordered from a menu.This food was also good.
The drinks. Most of the time i had beer and the other half had wine. Again as we were AI we didnt need to worry about the cost. The fridge in the room is refilled with a couple of small bottles of water each day unless you have the do not disturb on outside the room. One thing i would say is that during a meal it is better to order a couple of drinks each as the staff can be busy during meal times.
The Staff. The staff worked hard.One of the waiters seemed to be on duty the whole week without a break. The animation team were ok. They didnt have much success getting people involved in daytime activites apart from water polo. At night the entertainment was ok it did the job but no more.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Marti and would recommend it and would go back. I would say that anybody staying at the hotel should stay all inclusive as the cost of the drinks if you are paying is very expensive. I didnt notice that prices in general in Turkey have gone up in recent years and even a beer outside the hotel wasnt that cheap. Is it 5* if you bear in mind it is a tourist hotel in a tourist location i would say yes.
expensive for drinks if not all Inclusive
rooms a little dated
