Myself and my Husband both in our 40's travelled 24th May - 6th June 2012 staying all inclusive.We were part of a group of 26, a mixture of 6 children and 20 adults. I will base my review as a couple with no children.
We would like to say a massive thank you to Deniz and his staff for making this a wonderful place to stay. Sorry guys cant remember all your names but here goes, Hakan, InAng, Kaddi, Eilmas, Jack, Alp, Emma, Mevlet, Abdullah (who did my massage), and of course the friendly photographer, smiler at reception, the lady receptionist and the others also the cleaners who are part of a hard working team.
I have to say that we stayed at in and around this hotel for the 14 days we were here and went out 1 evening. No problem with sun beds, the pool towels some are a bit small but change them in the morning just to make sure clean ones are available.
Dolmus readily available outside the hotel, easy to get to the town or onto Marmaris we used them a few times with no problems all very friendly and cheap as chips.
I had a massage, it was wonderful!!!!.
We exchanged money at the hotel rates were good but if you want to shop around you could get a little more in the town.But not worth the hassle.
I had the WIFI £5.00 a week, great if you need to keep in touch with family at home and of course your Facebook updates!!! We became grandparents whilst we were away so Wifi was a god send. Whats app is the way forward.
Rooms - our room 2211 overlooked the pool and the bar and our balcony was above where the photographer sat. Great for people watching, The room was clean a fab size with a separate bedroom with a double bed, bathroom and 2 balcony's one small balcony and another balcony where you could sit, Air con in both living room and bedroom which was FOC. Also tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge with a welcome bottle of water on arrival. The rooms were cleaned everyday, The cleaners did a wonderful job.Always smiling and made an effort to speak. Plasma tv with sky sports 1 and 2. Plenty of draws and hanging space, ask for more hangers if you need them we did. The noise didn't affect us at all but if you are a light sleeper request a room away from the pool. We kept our room as we were leaving at 16.30 and as we were showering and changing getting ready to leave the cleaners brought us fresh towels, Nice touch.
Food & Drink - We enjoyed the food hence we only left the hotel one evening, That was for our regular once a year visit to Natalie's Steak Restaurant in Marmaris.You could have something different every night. I must say we were in the middle of a change over where the food was concerned as everything was waiter service when we arrived but after 2/3 days it was self service certainly for breakfast and half and half for the evening meal. Plenty to choose from but such a shame about the wasps attacking the chilled food under the cling film. Which was always presented lovely, as as the previous reviewer says, with the hot food make sure the handles are fixed as this could be dangerous. It was difficult for adults never mind the children. Numerous occasions there were no Jacket potatoes left at lunch time, no onion rings and no fish fingers i feel i need to say this as this sort of food should be in plenty. Especially when all inclusive. All in all the food was tasty and plentyful. Desserts I think there should be a lot more choice. If your still hungry order more!!!! Thank you Hakan and Mevlet for making sure every evening we sat together as a group to eat our evening meal. Much appreciated. yes all 26 of us. Water was readily available, tea and coffee machines for breakfast the rest behind the bar. Hakan thank you for the rolls on our trip back to the airport.
Entertainment - As previous have commented, darts, killer pool, water polo, table tennis, water gym, water slides twice a day, a pool dance all there if you want to take part but if you don't this is not a problem. The evening entertainment was what you would expect of Turkey something on every evening but did finish quite early. We were kept entertained and enjoyed a drink until midnight..
We had a fantastic holiday, yes we would return and yes we would recommend this Hotel to friends.
Thank you Deniz
