We stopped in the Sun Maris Beach Hotel for a week from 11/06/11, im trying not to be too negative about it as we did have a good holiday but some things really spoiled it for us, firstly ill start with the fully inclusive, ive ALWAYS thought that fully inclusive means that ALL food, drink and entertainment was free, not at the Sun Maris it isnt, if you want a full english breakfast you have to pay, the free drinks stop at 22:30 and the ONE night that they had entertainment they expected us to pay £15 each, needless to say that we didnt, so they barred all the free drinks from the entertainment area and stole all the tables, also if you are not a size 8 with blonde hair or if your not spending money you will find the staff there are a bit ignorant apart from the staff around the pool who were a good laugh.
Next ill mention the food, this was the main problem for us, to be quite honest it was shocking, absolutly awful food, even if they serve chips you only get about 8 chips on your plate, i carnt really tell you what they served because it didnt resemble or taste of anything, if they paid the same amount of attention on the main meals as they did with the cakes it would be much better, we ate out most of the time because it was that bad, so again, if your fully inclusive STILL take plenty of money with you for food, also the free drinks are VERY small, about the size of a childs beaker and you can only get 2 drinks per visit, one drink per visit after 21:30, so you will find yourself queing up at the bar every 5 minutes.
And lastly dont dirty the towels or they will try to charge you £10 for them, we mopped some spilt coffee up with ours and had to report to reception the next day where the manager got VERY stroppy with my parter infront of all the guests, he demanded she pay £10 and when she refused he give her 10 minutes to clean it and bring it back, she washed it and it came clean straight away, i took it back 2 hours later and told him to shove it where the sun dont shine.
I also got ripped off when i changed some currancy at reception so beware!!.
But apart from that it was a good Holiday, i would defo go back to Marmaris but not at this Hotel, when we ate out at restraunts the waiters would always ask where are we staying, when we said it was at the Sun Maris Beach Hotel they ALWAYS said "hows the food", that says it all doesnt it lol.
On the positive side the Hotel has very clean rooms (with a tiny balcony), a good swimming pool and is only 60 seconds from the beach.
Would defo recommend the boat trip to the mud bath, takes ages to get there but its worth it.
