“Good potential”
Review of Pupa Yat Otel - CLOSED

Reviewed June 8, 2011

I 'discovered' this place through Sawadays Special places to stay. Arrived late at night and was shown to room by helpful chap who proved to be consistently friendly and helpful for the rest of our short stay.

Perhaps we were a bit early in the season - but the whole place needed a good tidy up. The hotel itself was OK - but the surrounding area needed someone to remove the derelict boat, pick up the litter off the beach & coil up the hose to make it all seem a bit more orderly. The sailing boat promised on the web site was not available.

The bathroom in our room (201) needed a good scrub to brighten it up & discourage the blattaria. Oiling the squeaky doors & fixing the plumbing that 'howled' would be good. The mattress was pretty hard & bouncy (fnurr) and not having to ask for a top sheet would be a bonus. Asking for a room away from the bar area would make your stay quieter at night. The room at the top of the hotel looks an interesting option if you can get that - with its own private sunning area.

On a positive note, this place has great potential. The room aircon worked well and was quiet. The staff were all fantastic - genuinely friendly. The view from the room's (tiny) balcony is good. The garden looks as good as it does on the website - with pretty flowers and shady eucalyptus. Food was fine. 60 Euro a night for the time we went represents reasonable value. There's a Dolmus (minibus) stop right outside the hotel near to the sleepy taxi rank - to take you into the nightmare of Marmaris!

All in all - recommended for a short stay.

We have been now the fith time in Pupa Yacht Hotel, and we always loved it. A 1-star hotel with a 5-star service. What a paradise! Hidden in a bay about eight kilometers from bustling Marmaris (what a nightmare this town) is this hotel directly on a small beach in a bay only discovered by yacht people. OK - rooms are small and bathrooms tiny. But very clean and airconditioning is working perfect. The Garden is very nice and there are free sunchairs on the beach. They even have a perfect beachservice. The sea is clean and they have a sailing boat and a small motorboat to rent. They arrange boattrips.
The hotels has a very nice restaurant, with very personal service, which serves top turkish food. This is a hotel which is known by insiders from the book "the little hotel book" for small turkish hotels and has mostly turkish guest from computer -, media - and internet companies (they know what is good). If you expect animation, room service or a big de luxe hotel, this is not the place. If you want the perfect quiet place with superfriendly staff and the perfect location - this is the place. If you want to go out in the evening and you want a decent place: go to the Netzel Marina: nice shops, good restaurants and bars. Visited by boatowners and only a few steps from the bustling town Marmaris.
A perfect holiday for little money. What can you expect more.
