Reviewed July 1, 2012

The hotel is a good hotel but more for the adults as there is not a lot of facilities for kids. In terms of location of the hotel, it is pretty central but a little bit farther from the beach than it's sister hotels Ideal Premium or Ideal Prime Beach. It is marked as a 4 star hotel but I would rate it more in between of 3 and 4 to be honest. The staff is very friendly and they try and help you out as much as possible, however not many staff spoke English even though the hotel mainly accommodates, English, Dutch, German and Russian guests. The breakfast buffet is sufficient and there is a good enough spread available to anyone's liking. The lunch and dinner buffets did not differ too much but the variety and freshness of the food is excellent, especially the desserts section.
From this location you could easily go anywhere so in that respect it was very good. The big positive aspect for this hotel was that is was part of a large chain but it still kept it's nice small hotel feel where you feel served and known. Would recommend it if you go there for a week.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road and away from the pool view as it can be quite noisy.

Just arrived home from a weeks stay at the Ideal Pearl. What an amazing holiday!

The food was lovely with great choice - no hungry tummies here!
Rooms were absolutely fine with plenty of space and a lovely view.
Maids did an outstanding job and I can honestly say that everything was spotless! Clean towels and bedding every day.
The hotel is in a great location with the beach, bars and restaurants all close by. Bar Street is only about 10mins away on a Dolmus (2lira per person) and is well worth a visit if you enjoy nightclubs- however, it ia very expensive!!

Visiting the spa in the hotel is a must!! Great treatments at brilliant prices! We had the turkish bath package and it was nothing short of incredible!!

Overall, my boyfriend and I had a great first holiday together and would definitely recommend this hotel to adults and couples.

Just returned home yesterday and this was mine and my partners first time in Turkey and will probably not be our last! We have a fab 2 weeks in Marmaris and did not want to come home. When we arrived at 6am we were greeted by a male receptionist who gave us our room key. We were given the wrong room which was on the bottom floor with no balcony facing the back of the hotel, we went straight back to reception and explained that we had paid for a balcony and was not happy with the room, he told us to come back at 1pm after other people had checked out and he would give us another room. At 1pm we went back to reception and swapped to lovely room with a balcony and double bed. The hotel cleanliness was fantastic, the maids did an exceptional job, our towels were changed and bed was made everyday for the whole of our 2 week stay. Food was ok. Bit repetitive but speaking to other people this is the same everywhere in turkey, we always found something to eat, fussy eaters may struggle. There were snacks of pizza, chips, salad and burgers every day inbetween dinner and tea from 2pm - 4pm. The drinks were good a range of local spirits, beer, wine and soft drinks were available throughout the day until 11pm which was not a problem for us as we usually went out after to the bars around marmaris. In the day you had to go to The swimming pool is great and a decent size compared to some of the large hotels on the beach where they were tiny! It wasnt too cold and perfect for the weather which was nearly hitting 50 degrees, it was the hottest june they have had for 6 years! The rooms were a decent size with a balcony and air conditioning which was a necessity in the heat, a mini frige and a safe which is 50tl per week. Next door to the hotel is a place called Steak Diana's, fantastic place to go, staff were brill and very lively place with entertainment. Another thing to do is the Turkish bath in the hotel. £25 each for a Turkish bath, facial, sauna and a massage, fantastic value for money, I deffinatley recommend this! The hotels location is good, it's 2 mins to Ichmeler and 2 mins to the main nightlife and center of marmaris. It is 2 Turkish lira each to use to dolmus bus and you can flag one down anywhere on the street. Make sure when you shop that you haggle because they will try to rip you off big time! If they don't agree with a price walk out the shop and they will soon take your offer. We didn't go to bar street but got told it was very expensive by a group of people we met there, we went to bars on the sea front and found it was cheap if not cheaper than the bars closer in land. We booked 2 trips through Mr Travel who is on the corner next to Picassos restaurant and this is a lot cheaper than booking through Thomas cook. We booked the lazy day boat trip for £10 each for a full day stopping off in bays for a swim, sunbathing and had dinner, Thomas cook wanted over £20 each for this so if you want to save a lot of money book with Mr travel. The sea is beautiful and in parts of the bays the water is really warm. I recommend quad safari as well, it was a good laugh but you get covered in muck so take old clothes as I binned mine! Overall is was a great holiday and the hotel was very good value for money! I would recommend this hotel if your looking for a nice relaxing holiday with the option of good nightlife within walking distance, we would deffo go back.

This was mine and my boyfriends first holiday and it was amazing. We got there about 4am and the first room they gave us was horrid. So tiny, no balcony (after we'd paid for one) and it was above the breakfast hall so we were woken up at 6am with the clattering of cutlery trays and the like underneath but it sounded like it was right outside the door. No view whatsoever and we were so unhappy but when we saw the Thomas Cook rep that morning she asked them to change our room and the change was amazing, we didnt get a sea view but we got one of a patch of grass which was an improvement than before. Much bigger room and the bed was so much more comfy as the other one was like laying on hard wood. Bathroom was nice and we got our balcony and air conditioning. If you have a problem whatsoever the staff are helpful and had no problem changing our room as one was available. There is a little shop inside the hotel that sells lilos, icecreams, water (really cheap) and all the essentials you may need on holiday and it was greatly priced. The breakfast is nice with plenty to choose from mainly eggs though but their american style wedges are lovely. We went out to dinner for 4 nights out of the 7 as we got a bit bored with the all inclusive selection so we reccommend Samdan and Taj Mahal as resturaunts. Outside the hotel is a little market but dont worry you dont hear any noise at all. It mainly sells jewellry and trinkets but theres a lot of shops along the main road that sell the snyed t shirts,. shoes and handbags. NEVER accept the first price they give you and try to work out how much it is in english in your head to justify the value. We got a pair of lacoste trainers down from 55 lira to 30 lira which is about 25 quid down to about 10 quid. If they cant do you a better deal walk out the shop and theyll offer you a better deal on the way out. We had no experience haggling but they want your money so go for it. The hotel was always clean and the pool bar was on hand for drinks, theres a fanta like drink thats included and actual branded pepsi is included. If you want to watch some tv in the evening bring a laptop, dvd player or portable dvd player cos all the tv channels are in german lol. I would easily reccommend this place to people, the hotel was lovely and we would go back there again. Staff are polite and can understand quite a bit of english at the desk and at the bar they will be able understand your drinks order.The only problems we had was the first room we went into which was changed and a series of multiple power cuts that lasted about 5 mins one after the other on a couple of days occasion that got annoying. Enjoy your holiday :)

Room Tip: The music at the pool bar goes off at 11pm and the a/c unit is noisy enough to block out the neighbo...

Just got back from a week in ideal pearl. First things first the food was amazing, different choice everyday and you cannot leave without trying the vegetable gratin or the skewers as they were amazing! Plenty of pudding choice however, apart from the fruit it was all sweet and a bit sickly after a while.

their was plenty of drink selection as well; gin, vodka, raki, wine (all colours) tyborg and effes. as well as coffee, water, juices and fizzy drinks. however if ordering the vodka ask for double or even triple as it was a bit weak. however plenty of choice for an all inclusive, shame they closed it down at 11 however.

The majority of bar staff are friendly and efficient, learning what you order and bringing it straight away if it isn't too busy. However a couple ruined this. the bar is by the pool and as such (regardless of how long you are sat in the sun or towel off) it is inevitable that your bathing suit will drip as you order drinks although one of the bar staff seemed to think i was intentionally making his floor wet causing a great degree of discomfort as he yelled at me whether i had a towel.

entertainment was laughed at rather than with. the latin dancers lasted only 20minutes and had moves you would see in any club. the 'live music' consisted of one man and his poor guitar skills playing along with a pre recording of the songs. he cleared the bar. the bingo is popular but also costs 10 lev per strip which wasn't mentioned till we said we would play. however the entertainment organiser was fun and active playing table tennis with people and generally making sure people were relaxed and having fun.

hotel itself was spotless and the maid service brilliant. apart from the pool side toilet where i'm sure one thread still dangles :)

we also took part in the turkish bath package 140 lev for 2 so about £25 each. bit awkward as the staff did not/ could not talk to you however still an enjoyable experience so be covered in bubbles and scrubbed down. the massage was also through and amazing however was not relaxing due to the staff arguing in turkish as we sat in the waiting area. we ended up going down twice due to a mix up but in spite of the good treatment it was not a thoroughly relaxing affair although Ali and the lady who did our scrub downs were amazing.

overall it was a few horrible staff that ruined the good work of the majority and prevented us from having the relaxing holiday that we had spent a year saving up for and looking forward to after the completion of my university years. i would not go back either to turkey or the hotel inspite of the good location i left feeling awkward and uncomfortable which was not what i expected.

Room Tip: get one nearer the end the rooms are huge we were situated at the far end of the hotel meaning it ha...
