First time we stayed at this hotel. Found the hotel quite good would give it 4stars but the restaurant could have been better. Probably a 3 star. We found the food quite repetitive. The hotel was very clean and lots of shady trees. They could have done with more umbrellas around the pool area. There didn't seem enough sun beds or umbrellas at the beach unless you got there and saved one before 8 am. The sea was very clear but stony so would be better to wear beach shoes. There is a dolphin park about a 100 Mtrs down the beach, we didnt go to it but you could swim with the dolphins for around £115 for about 15 minutes.
We had a nice large room in the hotel with a. 6 foot bed and a single. The chambermaids were very good and the room was kept very clean. Had the usual fixed shower gel dispensers in the shower and over the sink. Also a fridge in the room which was stocked with three bottles of water. We travelled as a family and our daughter had a smaller room but with a double and two singles. We did ask for them to be close together and were told they were, but alas although they were on the same floor they were very far apart. The hotel staff in the bars and around the pool were very helpful but found the reception staff not so helpful and didn't speak much English.
There were many nationalities staying at the hotel mainly Russian polish and Turkish and a few English.
The hotel has a child's disco for an hour, then they do entertainment in the amphitheatre which we felt was very good, a few of the shows are well worth seeing. That was for an hour 9-10 pm then down to the beach bar for a live band or disco until 12pm, good place to have it as it keeps the loud music a fair distance away from the rooms.
The hotel is at the end of the busy Marmaris resort. With a Dolmus bus a few yards from the hotel entrance which took you into Marmaris or into Ichmeler. We got the Dolmus into Marmaris for around 2 Turkish Lira (2.9 lira to the £1) each. There we caught the taxi boat to Ichmeler which cost 10 lira each took around 30 minutes. They run every half hour and well worth a trip. We ate in a restaurant in Ichmeler called Venetia very good food, had a great steak. The staff at the restaurant were very good and gave us a lift back to the hotel. I think this is a service most of the restaurants offer.
Overall we enjoyed our holiday but not sure we will go back, but that's probably because we like to try different places.
